Master Plan 25
Create a Blueprint that needs at least 2000 resources worth of parts and Circuits to build.

You will need to create a Blueprint at the Workbench. While crafting/upgrading a gun, you have the option of pressing to create a Blueprint. This will automatically put them in the Blueprints section of the menu within the Workbench. This may actually go along with the "Full House" achievement if you were heavy on your upgrades. This can be more trial and error since you can't actually see how much the Blueprint is worth in total resources until you craft it. Just make as much upgrades as possible and create the Blueprint. Go to see how many resources it took, then reload the game and either try again, or wait until you can create more expensive parts.

Note: If you have the limited edition or obtained certain pre-order bonuses, the weapons given as a bonus may be worth well over 2000 and you can easily make a blueprint out of it to gain the achievement very early on in the game.

From the Jaws 10
Save your Co-Op partner from an execution by killing the attacker.

While playing in Co-Op, sometimes enemies will grab a hold of you or your partner. You must kill the enemy before the playing being attacked dies or does the button prompts. Shoot the enemy and when it dies, you will get the achievement. There are many enemy types that do an execution.

Share and Share Alike 10
Use the RIG to give an item to your Co-Op partner.

Open up your inventory menu. Where you normally can drop or use an item, you should see the option to "give" it. Pick any item and as long as your partner's inventory isn't full, you may give it to them for the achievement.

Medic! 10
Revive your Co-Op partner 10 times.

When your Co-Op partner is downed, revive 10 times. This does not have to be the same partner (drop in, drop out is fine). This might not come natural if playing on Easy and both you and your partner are killing enemies quickly. If you want to get it fast, just have your partner keep getting downed and revive them.

Ghosts of the Past 25
Face all of Carver’s demons by completing all Co-Op only optional missions.

Carver is the Co-Op character available in this game. You must complete all of his optional missions to uncover more about him. There are only a total of 3 missions. You will want to follow a guide to get them all. You can check the stats in your progress and unlocks screen from the pause menu.

Architect 10
Share a Blueprint with your Co-Op partner.

You must be in a Co-Op game in order to obtain this achievement. Go to a Workbench and to the Blueprints menu. Scroll down to your custom Blueprints (you must have created one first in Weapon Crafting). Highlight one and press to share it. Only custom Blueprints you have created will work. Anything from DLC, promotions, blueprints, or in-game rewards will not allow you to share. You do not waste resources or lose anything by sharing the Blueprints with another person in your game.

Axes High 20
Kill 30 enemies using Fodder axes.

Fodder axes are weapons some enemies will be carrying. The enemies are called "wasters". They can also be carrying wrenches later on in the game which still count towards the achievement. To kill enemies with dropped weapons, you must use kinesis on the weapon by holding and pressing . Aim it at an enemy and press to throw it. The absolute best method is to shoot off an arm of this enemy, grab the axe/wrench, and shoot it at their legs. This will not work if the enemy transforms. If you kinesis an axe or wrench and throw it, then you will not be able to pick it up again. If an enemy transforms, the weapons will vanish.

Easy Grinding
The best possible spot to grab this is Chapter 14. You have an optional mission called Disposal Services. Almost the entire mission has these enemies and there aren't a lot that are morphing. You can just keep replaying this area if you want. Even the starting area has around 4 or 5 of the enemies.

Payback 15
Kill a Soldier by TK'ing a grenade or rocket back at them.

When a human soldier throws a grenade or shoots a rocket at you, you will have to use telekinesis on the explosive and throw it back to kill them. Telekinesis (TK) is the Kinesis power on your RIG. To use the power, hold . press to grab an object, and then face the solider and press to throw it back at the enemy. This achievement can be gained in Chapter 10 and beyond when facing soldiers. The video below is a great spot to gain it. This is right after getting off an elevator, the enemies will automatically throw a grenade at you.

Go for the Limbs! 10
Dismember 500 limbs from living enemies.

See "And Then We Doubled It!" achievement description.

And Then We Doubled It! 10
Dismember 1000 limbs from living enemies.

Shoot off the limbs of enemies. A lot of what Dead Space is all about is taking out the enemies limb by limb until they die. Starting with the legs to slow them down (if they have them). You will play casually getting these. There are a few good places to grind these, but it is not needed whatsoever. This stat tracks over all saves, therefore you will get this in your second playthrough.
