    Restatement of the obvious achievement description: You must fully upgrade one weapon using nodes on benches. Easy enough.

    But like Dead Space 1, you don't have to have a node in each circuit slot, only the colored ones that level up the weapon's stats.

    Nodes are around and hidden aplenty; if you don't want to take advantage of DJ JEZ's solution, you should be able to do this in your first playthrough even if you decide to fully upgrade your Rig and Stasis.

    TheLiveDunnGood guide, but you didn't have to put power nodes in every slot in the first game. I got the achievement for upgrading every weapon after I put power nodes in all of the colored slots.

    This startegy is designed to kind of earn this achievement early on if you chose to upgrade your RIG and stasis first. From the beginning I focused putting all my nodes on the RIG and stasis, once I achieved that (Ha!) I was on chapter 9, by this point you will have earned the RESPEC ability (respectability, as well) and be able to remove your nodes and apply them somewhere else. So once I upgraded my RIG and stasis, I saved at the nearest save station (which happen to be right by a work bench) and then I used the RESPEC to remove nodes from my RIG and stasis and then apply them to a gun, I did plasma cutter, the achievement popped and then I just reloaded my last save. My RIG and Stasis were back to normal and I had an extra cheeve earlier than I should have.

    Credit goes to jpric18 from X360A for finding this.

    You can either play the game normally, choose a weapon that you like and upgrade it as you go. I personally upgraded my rig and stasis and when i got to chapter 14 i found this glitch which gives you unlimited nodes which will also help you unlock the fully loaded achievement.

    How to get unlimited power nodes

    This was done on normal difficulty and the room that replenishes the items requires a power node for access.


    The Save Station is located on Chapter 14 after the anti-gravity section. Shortly after sticking your eye with needle, you'll be chased by the necromorph that doesn't die. You'll eventually reach the anti-gravity section. After you pass the anti gravity section, you go through two doors and on your right will be a door requiring a power node for access. This is room that replenishing the items. You'll find the Save Station two more doors if you head left from that T intersection.

    Steps (read description above to locate starting point):
    1. Unlock the door with a power node. Title above door: 6: Secure Storage, Power Node Access Only
    2. Advance through two more doors to reach a Store, Bench, and Save Station.
    3. Save at Save Station after the anti-gravity section on Chapter 14.
    4. Quit to the main menu, the press continue.
    5. Back track to the anti-gravity area (most of time you can go directly to the room). Once you get back to the anti-gravity area, go back through the last two doors and go into the room on your right. This is the room that required a power node to open. Inside this room is where I find either 2 power nodes, 1 ruby semiconductor, and/or 3k credit.
    6. Go back to Save Station and save the game.
    7. Repeat steps 4-6

    NOTE: if you start finding only credits in the room, try going all the way back to the switch in the antigravity area, then go to the room. Doing this has reset the 2 power nodes for me.

    TheRickMoranisI can confirm that this works so far. Did it once and had two extra nodes ... I kinda don't want to do it again ... but it's so tempting!
