Smile Dead Space 2 Hard Core Tips

I am writing this while on chapter 14 and wanted to give some advice that I hope people can use on the Hard Core difficulty setting.


1.Make Sure You Can Sit Down and Play


This will come in handy because you will not have to waste any of your saves before you actually need them.

2. Early Bonus Armor

Now the Arcade game Dead Space Ignition allowed the player to earn armor for Dead Space 2 and the collector's edition comes with some great armor as well. Use them for the easy for a beginning boost.

3. The Weapons

This is my personal choice, but the Zealot Force Gun(or regular) and the Plasma Cutter are all you should need to beat the game. The Force Gun is great for almost every enemy in the game and especially helpful in situations where you will get surrounded. The Plasma Cutter I would recommend because it is still a very great weapon to have for all the other necromorphs.

The good thing about Dead Space 2 is that you will usually only get ammo for the guns you have in your possession and rarely anything else.So having just these two guns will ensure you have a constant stream of ammo you can depend on.

4. Where To Save

Again this is my preference, but I saved for the first time during chapter 8 when you get to the meat processing plant and again in chapter 11. Save only when you feel it is necessary, if it is for a break try to leave the console on rather than wasting a save (if it can be avoided)


5. Use the Wall

To take on the necromorphs I recommend keeping your back against the wall (if possible) using the force gun for multiple necromorphs and the Plasma Cutter for everything else.

6. Patience

I cannot tell you how many times I have been killed from careless mistakes. I suggest taking your time and carefully study your environments.

The game is not too hard if your pay attention. During the final chapters it is easy to get overwhelmed, but the Force Gun really will be a life saver near the end. I hope this helped at least one person out, now if you will excuse me I need to take a break from killing necromorphs and make a sandwich.

Edit Stasis ans Kinesis

I forgot about this, but Kinesis will usually take only 2 hits to kill a necromorph wish a severed arm and Stasis is always good to use on those blasted Stalkers

This is a given. I always leave my console on for days at a time and have yet to see any ill effects from doing so.

I didnt get the CE but I did purchase the Martial Law DLC Pack, which gives you 6 weapons for free at the first store and and 2 suits. One of the suits give you 5% extra force gun damage and the other standard bonuses that come with all 15 inventory slot suits.

I wanted to clarify on the ammo you will recieve. For killing and stomping enemies, the ammo rewards can be for any gun you currently have equipped OR any gun you have in your safe. I recommend buying just the force gun and keeping the plasma cutter this way you always have plenty of ammo for the guns you will be using.

I am on chapter 14 as well and I preferred using my saves in the same places leaving the last save for right before the final boss fight.

Unless of course they come out of a door behind you! During your other playthroughs, take note of spawn points as sometimes one hit that you could have prevented could mean 3 hours lost.

Tell me about patience, HAHA...I got to the Eye Poke Machine and got distracted by my girlfriend and screwed it up!! That wasa very frustrating death to say the least.



Forgot to mention, keep your inventory filled with around 6 med packs, 4 stacks of ammo for each gun, and 2-3 stacks of stasis nodes (after getting advanced suit you will have this inventory space).

Also, Kinesis on Necros to get their stabby things lol. And if they don't drop an item after they're dead, stomp on their corpse, they ALWAYS drop an item.

I'd saying using stasis and Kinesis to would be very important for beating it. I'm going through on Zealot an Kinesis seems to be a one hit kill most of the time when you grab necromorphs stabbing things.

Great guide! I was thinking of posting this, but you beat me to it.

Completely agree about the loadout. CE armor is extremely helpful, and I use the same weapons: Plasma cutter and force gun. The force gun is seriously underrated, most people like the contact beam. But the force gun is a LIFESAVER! It's alternate fire makes it very useful at medium range, too.

I have not started my hardcore yet, but on zealot one of the tricks that helped me beat impossible on DS1 was taking mental notes on when those necro makers appear(looks like a stingray, no idea on the name). I always smashed up the corpses when i could, and when i couldn't, i did my best to kill them before they were finished with their body. It can save you alot of ammo and health, the ones they make are usually tougher than usual and deal more damage.

Also what is this ch7 checkpoint glitch, and how do i avoid it?

you cant avoid the glitch , but its a glitch that helps you out, you get 3 saves for hardcore but once you get to chapter 7 and have to swap discs the game automatically puts this as a sorta save without you using a save, so if you die you would go back to chapter 7 if you didnt make another save after swapping discs.

Fuck Gears of War 3 lol just my personal preference all gears have been a let down whereas dead space has always provided a good game for me.

Dead Space and Gears of War are nothing alike.

But I do enjoy Dead Space more-so than Gears.

So I recommend it.

This game is definitely worth it, one of my favourites on the 360. Are you aware that Gears 3 doesn't come out until at least September? I'm sure you'll have more money by that point.

Do you recommend searching every room for ammo and power nodes, or stay on the path? I suspect the latter, but you never know. Usually enemies spawn when you enter/exit certain rooms, and I don't want to die from some random necro just because I went exploring. Also, what do you recommend upgrading first - rig, stasis, plasma cutter, or force gun? I'm going to try to get to chapter 7 without saving, so the gaps inbetween saves aren't as large.

The Contact Beam is great only for the final battle with the Marker.

As long as you have the force gun you will be a okay and there are not to many occurrences where the necromorphs will jump out when going off the beaten path.

Red face Amen!!!

Damn man. I'm on my 3rd attempt on efffn HARDCORE.
Died the 1st time Chapter II - Train Ride, when you hanging upside down. Had a yellow RIG and some Necrobitch fucked me up with one slash.
2nd time was Chapter IV - Stalker Ambush in the church. He ran straigth @ me and I was watching watching watching and BAAAM killed me with one ram-attack. Haha I was sooo hypnotized.

End of the story, I managed to get to Chapter V, took my 1st SAVE right after the Cryo-Rooms (Demo). Puuuuuuuh! I almost had a heart attack.

As for this thread: IF YOU HAVE A YELLOW RIG & a NECRO is near you, act FAST, fight back, STASIS, heal yourself, just DO SOMETHING or else YOU'RE FUCKED!!!

Btw: Playing it without any DLCs or CE things. Just me, myself & my Plasmacutter.

I've produced several published guides for this already and I've always used the Line Gun, Ripper, Javelin Gun and the Flamethrower for my playthroughs.

It's a great mix of short and long range weapons that have served me well. In fact, you can use the Javelin Gun on the last boss to kill it in under 60 seconds (or just over that on Hardcore mode).

And then combined with the Money Glitch (if you have the DLC suits) and the infinite Nodes, it shouldn't be too difficult.

The damage are set of survivalist difficulty (The one just before zealot)
The drops are set on the hardest difficulty of the game (Zealot)
Yes there are 4 if you count the infinite checkpoint in the elvator of the chapter 7.

But, if you leave, go to dashboard or close your xbox and didn't save, your 7th chapter checkpoint glitch won't work and you will be obligated to re-start from chapter 1, so take care!

I did buy the 400msp dlc's and so I can have every gun with some upgrades for free and at the first market, so this way I didn't wait till chapter 7 to get it

When I got to the train part ( Hanging upside down ) I think I got hit once. It's probably since I'm on a easy difficulty, but I was wondering if anyone knows where the necro's come out while your upside down ? I know theirs two that come in front of you after a couple of seconds pass, and two that appear near a vent to your left. Anyone know?

I just used the Plasma cutter up to chapter seven. Just dump nodes into damage and make sure you have plenty of ammo and stasis. Upon using Force gun I hate it, I would suggest the Contact as the secondary can be a life saver when surrounded by several enhanced necros.

I'm using the plasma cutter and the detonator personally, and I'm finding it to be a very useful combination. I rarely carry more than 20 detonator mines on me at a time, which is always more than enough (I've never run out once) since you can recover ones that don't get destroyed, and a direct hit against many enemies kills without any upgrades, or severely wounds, and the things is beyond valuable in the elevator scene (though I can imagine the force gun, and possibly the contact beam would be here as well). and of course, it makes all the stalker encounters pretty easy, as you can bunker up in a corner and force them to run through your mines (I always set 2 up, one about a foot or so behind the other, ensures if the first one doesn't kill them, the second does.)

As far as any upgrading goes, I upgraded my rig to the first health as soon as i could, and ONLY upgraded it for health, and my plasma cutter i did damage and capacity over reload speed if i had a choice, and I've only upgraded stasis to three shots and 2 duration slots. I've been exploring around, but always using kenesis to grab items that are way out there or off the beaten path when I can to avoid extra spawns.

Doing this I've only died 3 times so far, and once was because I think I accidentally shot something holding the train up so i fell and it crushed me.

Oh wow, that is pretty much a relief to hear about, considering the damage level of the mode. I'm playing on Zealot just now and don't think the damage is too punishing, so dropping it a level sounds more than fine. Also I'm doing okay with the amount of item drops, and can probably do better by prioritizing what I spend credits on, like the idea of having a two gun loadout.

I figure the trickiest part will be figuring out what save points to use, and trying not to get ambushed by any enemies.

Quick question: Can you not use New Game + for hardcore at all?

Honestly, The Big Punk Force Gun DLC (80MSP) for the first Dead Space was almost all you needed next to the Tank Suit (Level 6 - 30% Armor - Max Inventory). It was cheap as hell and was a beast in itself without nodes. With Nodes? Impossible mode Brutes died in one shot. All necros tear seamlessly apart. I carried that and the Plasma Cutter first game.

Another great weapon to keep with you during Zealot/HC is the Line Gun. It really saves your ass in A) Zero G moments with the gigantic Cysts. Stasis and fire a mine and a regular shot and instant death for the big bubbly bastard. B) The mine is a bonafide lifesaver during the final run to The Marker with the new regenerator AND on the drill machine. Stasis and mine will dispatch almost anything easily except for the new black/super Slashers.

Pregnants, I usually go for the legs but with a suped up Plasma Cutter or Line Gun, if you blast them in the head while charging at you, it just rips em right in half with no Swarm release..

Force Gun will dispatch all Crawlers without exploding them for the achievement as well. It is also the best weapon to use against Lurkers next to the Plasma Cutter. Two regular PC shots to the head will annhialate.

I ran through Zealot mode without saving once in about 5 and a half hours. As long as you know what's where and major confrontations, it's a relatively easy game compared to the first. It's just much more disturbing and a bigger rollercoaster.

I've got a question about the Disc 2 checkpoint thing. I made a save near the end of chapter 5, played through to Disc 2, and then got killed trying to defeat the AI (chapter 7 I think?) and it only gave me the option to load my prior save in chapter 5. What did I do wrong?

Usually when you die, this message will come:

"Reload form your last hard core save game?"

Then you just have to press and you good. Right back in the lift in Chapter VII. If that's not the case your game is screwed somehow (Glitch/Bug etc.).

Huh, okay. When it said that I thought it meant it was going to force me to pick my chapter 5 save, so I said "No" and it kicked me to the main menu.... where I had to load my chapter 5 save. Clearly I messed up.
