Dead Space Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

PENG TREASURE!!!

To find the peng treasure you must be on level 11. Once you have entered the flight platform look down on the trial where a tram is able to land, if you see something use kenisis and it will be the peng treasure. The peng treasure is also worth about 40,000 points at the store.

Getting The Military On Impossible

To get the military suit on is impossible right away, play a saved game that already has the military suit on new game + all the way to the very end and save before the final boss fight. Beat him wait for the cutscene to end and the credits roll, skip them and start a new game on impossible. You should see that Isaac already has the suit on during the opening scene.

Tips On How To Beat Hive Mind

To make the fight with the hive mind a little easier, instead of shooting 1 of the pimples on it's face at a time shoot each one, 1 time each. This way when he picks you up you don't have to shoot as long. Next have the line gun ready once you finish the pimples off, once he opens it's ribcage shoot a mine into there and it should blow off a few of it's hearts. There should be 1-2 left over.

Exploding Necromorphs

The best way to kill exploding necromorphs is to shoot the yellow sack that looks like a hammer but to kill multiple necromorphs you have to kill an exploding necromorphs without shooting its yellow sack then when killing it without it exploding use your telekinesis module to pick up the explosive sack it leaves behind when it dies leave it infront of you at a far distance and wait for themto come towards you then shoot the explosive sack to an instant kill not also is this cool but it conserves ammo.

Beating The Hive Mind

When fighting the hive mind, it will attack you with its two tentacles. When it raises the tentacle, run up close to the edge on the opposite side as the tentacle (e.g. left tentacle, run to the right). This is the best way to dodge them, after he attacks you he will bend over and you can shoot his weak spots on his face, I reccomend using the contact beam to shoot them (I beat him using it without any upgrades for it). After shooting 3 of his face "pods", it will pick you up. The only way to make it drop you is to shoot the remaining pods. It will then drop you and release 2 "pregnant" necros for you to kill. use the same strategy to dodge his tentacles and shoot the pods in his chest cavity to kill him.
