Dead Space Glitches

  • Military Suit on Impossible

    Beat the game in New Game Plus mode, while wearing the Military Suit. After the game ends, skip the credits and don't save your game. Instead immediately start a new game on Impossible difficulty and you will be wearing the Military Suit.

Dead Space Hints

  • Help With The Hunter

    Ok, so we all hate the hunter. If you don't know, he is a regenerating necromorph that cannot be killed. The first time you encounter him is tough, and you just have to run. I found that it is best to shoot of his legs because he doesn't regenerate them immediately and he is much slower without legs. Then you freeze him and he gets taken away. He comes back in a later act, so use the same strategy and then fry him with the Rocket engines. That will be the end of him.

    Don't forget the Power Node the Hunter drops.

  • To Kill the Leviathan

    First, take out the tentacles. Then when the center opens aim for the orange ball. Grab the explosive canisters, and launch them in the center, or grab the lathan pod and launch it into the center.

  • New Game Plus

    Beat the game, save and load your cleared save data. You'll start on the same difficulty, but have all your upgraded equipment, extra nodes and credits and plans for the Military Suit (a level six armor).

    Backstory Logs: These are the few logs that give some more background on the game. These are the extra 6 logs you get for Chapter 12 after beating the game and starting a new game on that same file.

    Impossible Difficulty: This says it all, the hardest difficulty available. You get this after beating the game on any difficulty.

    Military Suit: This is the Level 6 Suit Upgrade, you get this after beating the game once on any difficulty. It will be in your inventory when you reload that game to play again, it will be in your inventory as a schematic.

    New Game+: You get this when you beat the game, it will ask if you want to save. When you reload your game you will start with all your same stuff, plus the backstory logs, the level 6 suit schematic and some extra power nodes and credits. It does not allow you to change the difficulty though.
