Dead Space 3

Dead Space 3 Achievements


Kill 5 Cysts in the Biology Building with a single poison gas cloud.  

Obtained in Chapter 14

This is shortly after starting. You will get a key after meeting up with other characters and access the biology area. There are enemies called Cysts on the ground and on the walls. There are exactly five of them. This is the only spot you can gain this achievement. Walk in and stais #1 on the ground. Run forward and turn around to catch the bomb and throw it with kinesis. If you don't, the plant will die. If this happens you can restart your checkpoint. Do the same with #2. You will see #3 on the wall. You should stasis it, but do not worry about the bomb as it won't hurt it. Stasis #4 and grab the bomb as well. When you start getting around the corner you will see #5 on the wall. Again, just stasis and run. Go down the lift and kill the enemies. Do the puzzle to get things working again. Return up the lift, kill any enemies that attack. This is important because once you turn on the gas, the enemies will run down the hallway triggers the bombs and killing the plants. Use the computer to kill the plants with the gas, and you will unlock the achievement.

Chapter 14
Biology Sector
You'll need to catch the explosive pods from the cysts on the floor, or they will kill themselves. Use kinesis.

Easy to accomplish this is after you get the security card in chapter 14

@3-Yes they shoot out an explosive pod after you pass them. You need to stasis the cyst, run past it, and then turn around and catch the pod with TK and fire it away from the cysts. The 2 cysts on the walls can NOT kill themselves but the 3 on the ground can.

Annoyingly i did this perfectly and the achievement did not pop -_-

Co-op partner will also get this but it needs to be done on the first hallway after you get the key for the other areas in Chapter 14. Doesn't work on the hallway shortly after the Reaper Barracks for some reason (Might be because we selected the Reaper Barracks chapter instead of the main chapter)

Pops shortly after the gas subsides and you leave the booth.
