Dead Space 2 (DE) Walkthrough

1. Walkthrough overview

Hi there, folks. Richard Bastion here and I'll be helping you get the 1,000G in Dead Space 2. I'll be the Higgins to your Magnum P.I., The Goose to your Maverick, or Stimpy to your Ren.

1) I would personally recommend starting on Casual difficulty. While only 2 playthroughs are REQUIRED to 1,000G the game (Zealot + Hard Core), playing through on Casual first can save you quite a few headaches in the long run. Some achievements can be quite annoying if you're trying to earn them on Zealot. Additionally, beating the game on any difficulty will unlock Hard Core mode. Beating Hard Core mode, and then starting a New Game + with your Hard Core save, gets you a special gun which you can use to breeze through your Zealot playthrough in under 4 hours.

The Story Walkthrough secton will cover all of the missable achievements, so I'm not going to list them here. In this playthrough, we'll be getting 46/50 achievements. The only ones we'll be missing are:

  • Epic Dismemberment (You may be able to get this in one playthrough if you completely dismember every Necromorph you encounter)
  • Vacuum Cleaner
  • Mission Impossible
  • Hard to the Core

2) Now it's time for playthrough #2. I recommend you begin your Hard Core playthrough now. Check out the General hints & tips section for a terrific guide on Hard Core mode.

3) It's time for our final playthrough. This should be Zealot. Start a New Game + with your Hard Core mode save, whip out your special gun (Which you will get at the first shop), and tear those Necromorphs a new one. Be sure to nab any of the miscellaneous achievements you may've missed on your previous playthroughs.

If you can think of any way to improve the walkthrough when you've finished reading it, shoot me a PM or post on the walkthrough forum. I'd love to hear your opinion!
