Dead Space Walkthrough - Search and Rescue

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 1. Chapter 8: Search and Rescue takes you back to the Bridge, first seen in Chapter 4.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 2. Kendra informs you that the USM Valor has responded the distress beacon. Empty the cabinet seen here then continue to the Atrium.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 3. Remember this hole in the wall? It's safe this time, save for the sound of a growl. Fill up at the Store ahead -- there's a sizable battle coming up.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 4. Enter the Main Atrium then keep left and enter the Storage Room. Inside is a supply crate and an Upgrade Bench.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 5. Re-enter the Atrium and spot this freshly-stocked storage bin. Keep your ears peeled for the distinctively-disturbing sounds of...

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 6. ...exploders! Ready your Plasma Cutter and keep moving. You don't want these guys getting anywhere near you.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 7. After the seemingly-endless wave of Exploders has been popped, these lightning-fast Super Slashers attack. A switch to your heavy-hitter of choice is warranted, in my case the Line Gun.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 8. Lastly, an ultra-fast pair of Super Leapers attacks. Defeat them and the quarantine is lifted.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 9. Collect your loot then enter the Elevator to Mining Admin and Comm Array Levels.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 10. Ride the lift up to Level 3.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 11. Emerge from the lift and find a storage crate and two pick-ups to the left. Empty this supply bin on the right then ready your Line Gun (or equivalent) before continuing through the door ahead.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 12. A Pod-spewing Guardian is at the end of the hall, and once again there are no explosive canisters about. A couple well-placed Line Gun mines go a long way, followed by some primary-fire clean up. Note the cabinets on the left.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 13. But what's this? A second Guardian is farther left. Ripper blades do a tremendous job on these Guardians as well.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 14. Guardians are truly vile.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 15. But the creepiness isn't over yet. Approach the dying man in the corridor ahead and your newest Necromorph emerges from around the corner, the Divider. You've seen the Divider segments before, but this is the first time a fully-assembled Divider appears in the game.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 16. Stasis helps to slow the Swarm-like segments for easier targeting.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 17. Defeated, the Divider will drop this Ruby Semiconductor. Don't miss these wall cabinets, either.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 18. Kinesis clears away the Comm Array door, beyond which is a Save Station, an Upgrade Bench and a lift.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 19. Ride the lift up then listen to the Illegal Mining audio log. Continue through this door on the left.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 20. Grab this Power Node then enter the Formula-1 gondola for the ride of your life. Keep an eye open for the hanging body.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 21. Pass through the Comm Array door and receive a new objective from Kendra: Fix the Array. Note the Stasis Recharge on the right and the Save Station on the left. A supply crate and the Medium Air Can Schematic are across the room.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 22. This Power Node and unlocked lockers are in the next room. (I found a Gold Semiconductor in the second locker.) Don't miss the supply crate to the left.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 23. Find a pick-up in the airlock then step into the Zero-G Communications Array beyond.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 24. Three Leapers infest the Array. I recommend staying in the alcove and letting them come to you. You can then collect the loot they drop as well as grab the nearby floating supply crates.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 25. Take a look at the big board. Working antennas are green; malfunctioning antennas are red. You need to configure the array so that the innermost circle of antennas are all working.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 26. Here's a shot of two antennas. I've used Kinesis to pull over the working (blue) antenna on the left. I'll then remove the malfunctioning (red) antenna and replace it with the working one.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 27. Zero-G jump to reach the good antennas and bring them down to the central circle.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 28. Here's a shot of the big board after I completed repairing the array.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 29. You can now return to the alcove and re-enter the airlock. Walk around on the control room window first though, it's pretty cool.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 30. Activate the console and receive the Valor's transmission. Turns out they aren't responding to the beacon, but rather have found one of the Ishimura's escape pods -- one that Kendra believes had a Necromorph stowaway.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 31. Receive this new objective -- it's back to the ADS Cannon.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 32. Backtrack across the fast gondola. A Necromorph drops from the ceiling but you whiz by too fast for him to hurt you.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 33. Exit the gondola and be ready as this Slasher appears on the rising lift.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 34. After riding the lift down I use the nearby Upgrade Bench to spend two Power Nodes upgrading my Line Gun's capacity and one Power Node on reload speed. Feel free to allocate all of your Power Nodes -- a new Power Node is coming up shortly.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 35. Ride this lift to ADS Cannon 48.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 36. Exit the lift then clear the boxes from this dolly, revealing the eighth clue to the 5-Node Cheat, a green left arrow. The eighth character of the cheat is an X.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 37. Before taking a seat in the pit, grab this Power Node. A Save Station is to the left.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 38. Here we go again. Instead of battling asteroids like in Chapter 4, this time you're battling The Slug, a large Necromorph covering the Communications Array. Target the yellow nodes just as you have done with Drag Tentacles and with the Leviathan.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 39. Also be sure to target these fuel canisters which do more damage than the hull debris that The Slug throws at you.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 40. The difficulty lies in the ADS Cannon's incredibly slow projectiles. Even if your aim is perfect, the tentacle will likely move before your shots arrive. Try to fire in bursts in areas where the nodes are likely to be, or when the tentacles are ready to throw an object. Also be careful not to overheat the Cannon by firing too much. Here I survive with a meager hull integrity of 4. The Slug detaches itself from the Comm Array, allowing the Ishimura to communicate with the Valor.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 41. It's too late. The Valor has already opened the escape pod and has fallen to the Necromorphs. And here it comes!

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 42. The Valor crashes headlong into the Ishimura, hurtling Isaace from the pit.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 43. When you wake up you first see Nicole, then receive a communication from Hammond and Kendra. Your new objective is to retrieve a singularity core from the Valor to repair a shuttle that Hammond has found.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 44. Backtrack down the lift then battle Divider segments at the hall door.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 45. Return to the Main Atrium and battle another Divider. This time he only drops routine loot.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 46. Be sure to grab the better loot found in these mysteriously-refilled storage bins.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 47. At the nearby Store I sell what I don't need then purchase four Power Nodes, bringing me to a total of five.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 48. This Pregnant attacks back at the growling hole.

Dead Space Walkthrough Screenshot 49. Reenter the Tram and use the panel to end the level.
