Dead Space 2 Cheats

Isaac’s back, and he’s still strategically dismembering anything that gets in his way. As 2011′s first real blockbuster, Dead Space 2 has lofty expectations to live up to, which won’t concern the development team at Visceral games. They’ve added a snazzy new outfit for the protagonist, an engrossing new setting (The Sprawl, a megalopolis on one of Saturn’s moons) and a multiplayer mode reminiscent of Left 4 Dead.

The original Dead Space posed some difficult challenges, so we’re offering a comprehensive resource this time around to help those who want to survive the horror. Below, you’ll find lists of Achievements, Trophies, and other unlockables, along with a full walkthrough.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough

Dead Space 2 Modes, Schematics, and Equipment

Game Modes

Hardcore Mode – Beat the game on any difficulty. Hardcore mode recalls other, more unforgiving games. It’s stingy with health and ammo packs, there are no checkpoints, and you only get three save slots.

New Game + – Reminiscent, again, of other games. In this mode, you can start the game over with the unlocks and equipment you earned in your first playthrough. It is also the only mode you can unlock certain items in.

Unlockable Equipment

Dead Space 1 Plasma Cutter – Have a Dead Space 1 save file on your hard drive.

Riot Elite Suit - Purchasable from the store at the beginning of New Game + Mode.

Other Elite RIG Suits – Similar to the Riot Elite suit, there are a number of elite suits available to Isaac in NG+. In order to make them purchaseable at the store, however, you will need to find the schematics.

  • Elite Engineering Suit Schematic – On a couch, right by the very first store in the game.
  • Vintage Elite Suit Schematic - Right after you fight the first brute, by some mannequins in a shop window.
  • Advanced Security Suit Schematic - After the tram ride in Chapter 9, hanging on a railing.
  • Advanced Elite Suit Schematic - After the elevator ride in Chapter 11, turn around and use Kinesis to retrieve the schematic from behind the rail.

Hand Cannon – If you beat the game in Hardcore Mode, you’ll unlock the “Hand Cannon,” which is actually just a large foam finger. Isaac will supply verbal sound effects when it is used.

Multiplayer Unlockables – As is de rigeur these days, the Dead Space 2 multiplayer mode has an RPG-lite level-based customization system. By earning XP online, you’ll unlock different upgrades to your suit and equipment.
