how to use d.horns on survival h/core modes

Once you have the Devil Horns unlocked from completing Classic mode, you will need to disconnect from xbox live. Delete your cache to get rid of the update, then start up the mode you want to play, get to CH. 3 access the bench on the Roanoke the Devil Horns will be there. Make a save after collecting them resign into xbox live update the game and carry on in SP or CO-OP.

This is not working for me, fairly sure it's because I have some pre-order DLC stuff.

Disconnect from XBL, clear my cache.
ATTEMPT to choose my completed save so I can start up a NG+ in hardcore, and it says that the account I'm on isn't authorised to use the DLC on my save.

i have the limited edition with dlc it works. dont know if it makes a difference but all my different modes saves are in different slots.

After finishing Classic i chose NG+ Survival and put the save in a different slot, the same with Hardcore.

Will this still work if you already have a save for Pure Survival/Hardcore? My PS is already started, so I was just wondering if I HAD to start a brand new game or not. If I have to, it's no big deal.

I have already beaten both modes, so I disconnected, cleared cache, and loaded up chapter 4 of both Pure Survival and Hardcore and the Devil Horns were available. I saved each game with them equipped, reconnected to LIVE, updated with the patch, and still had them.

So yes.

PS and classic are really easy. HC is the only one you will have issues with. Not because its hard because you might fail like me and get cut in half by a fan

Lol wish I knew this sooner. Would've been easier but I already beat Pure Survival and Hardcore and have the 1000G after beating Classic last. At least I won't be limited to what modes I wanna play with now!

So if you don't have the DLC's license on the xbox, you won't be able to play the game offline?

This will definitely help but on my hard playthrough I only died from enemies one time. It's the stupid insta kill stuff like rocks, blades, etc that makes hardcore suck.

Once I log out it says I can't play dead space 3 unless I log in. How do you get around this to start or continue your game and get to a bench

Are you logging out of your account? That isn't what you want to do. Go to your storage on your console and clear the cache. Load up DS3 and when it asks you to update the game, decline the update. You will be offline and can set up your Devil Horns.

Thanks hunterrrr, that fixed the problem. Just a quick question for everyone tho, does anyone think this work around is cheating? I personally don't, but if you go on the xbox forums there are a couple people who think this is. Just want to know what peoples thought are on the use of this DH deal, on PS and HC. My opinion, I'm not gonna play this game 5 times. I want to use the DH for my HC run only. I have played it 3 times now and plan on doing the PS mode co-op with my friend and not use the DH for that run.

It isn't cheating. There are people who will say ANYTHING is cheating for whatever reason.

Just completed HC, I think Horns were meant to be awarded to players in different game modes, since when I beat PS and started HC I got info about resources and MK II Weapon parts being deposited in safe.

If you already have any dlc dont delete it, because you wont be albe to load save without every dlc you had when save was created.

You delete the DLC so you can properly set up the Devil Horns offline. You put the DLC back once the Devil Horns are set up.

You do not need to delete any DLC. You just need to clear your system cache, load the game, decline the update (force offline play). I had preorder DLC and the LE DLC (which I believe is just the online pass file. There is no separate file for the gun) and I did not touch these files.

Well, some people mentioned they were having problems with the DLC. So, I posted a solution. If you didn't need it, great.

Im not sure why other people are going to great lengths to make sure devil horns are unlocked for all modes, anyway this is what has happened for me.

after completing classic mode and unlocking the horns i start a hardcore playthrough, got to chapter 3 and got to the bench on the roanoke.

checked safe and devil horns are there.
didnt clear cache
didnt do any sort of signing in/out.
Have all current game updates
(Have marauder and sharpshooter and the scavenger bot dlc's)

Im not posting this to step on any toes or cause any kind of fuss, just letting you know what happened for me

Edit:- will do the same for Pure Survival now to confirm for this mode also.

Edit 2:- Just reached the 1st bench on the C.M.S Roanoke (Pure Survival) and i can confirm that without any tricks or exploits signing in/out cache clearing or anything like that, The Devil Horns are available.

So yeah, just get to the 1st bench on the C.M.S Roanoke and they will be in your safe (provided you have actually beat classic mode 1st)

I think this is just a fluke that a limited number of players are experiencing. I beat Classic Mode first and did not have the horns for Pure Survival or Hardcore. I think that's the case for most other people as well.

I did, however, have the MK II weapon parts and one-time mega resource deposit from beating Pure Survival available for the Hardcore playthrough (but not devil horns).
