Dead Space Achievements


Achieve a perfect score in the Shooting Gallery   

You will come across the Shooting Gallery in level 9. Use the Plasma Cutter and have it on vertical firing mode. The goal here is to shoot all the red guys as fast as possible (if you miss a red guy, you lose) and without shooting a single blue guy. It takes a little bit of practice but it's pretty easy once you get the hang of it. You will get good prizes too, so it's worth doing for more than just the achievement.

Probably the easiest achievment in the game lol., Just aim at the RED targets, and have a quick trigger finger. Hit a BLUE one though and its done for.

It took me quite a few tries to get this achievement, and yeah, I usually only missed one each time. :P I did it with the plasma cutter. I think on all the levels except for the last one, you can miss a red one or two and hit a blue one or two and still make the score, but I might just be blending my tries together. LoL

@4, no, you can't miss any reds or hit any blues. They give you enough points to pass. That's it.

Ruby Semiconductor and Power Node for beating lvls 4 and 5 respectively.

I picked this up by starting the round, then quickly hoping over into the far left stall. This allows you to always be at a slight angle, but more importantly, Issac's body is not blocking three of the target slots.

Easiest to get with the Pulse Rifle. Whatever you do, don't spray and pray, it never works. You have to have a good aim and a trigger finger.

I think the horizontal aim works quite well when shooting those red-hologram baddies. Also, try and move back Isaac a few steps back, so you can have a better view and a better shot.

I thought this was really easy. Move Isaac a little back and to the left (there's plenty of space to the left) so he doesn't stand in the way of any targets.

Here's a few important tips so you don't feel stupid like I did: You don't need to go save. It gives you infinite ammo, and if you 'lose' on a level, it keeps your highest. So you if screw up on 4, when you hit start, you do 4 again until you make it. So just enjoy and have fun!

I was a little stressed going into it because I didn't know what to expect... the comments made it seem pretty difficult. Welp, got it on my first try. Never had to attempt any of the levels a second time. Way easier than everyone made it seem to be.

@16 No, difficulty setting doesn't matter.

At first I tried it with the Plasma Cutter but I couldn't complete level 5 with it (though I scored 1900/2000 several times). Then I went to the shop, equipped the Impulse Rifle and got it on my first try.

I used the Plasma Cutter and got it on my first try. Tbh, I actually did it twice, but since my notifications were off (I'd forgotten lmao) I thought I didn't get it so I went through again up until lvl 5. Then, before I started, I checked my achievements to see how many lvls there were (thought there were 6v had it mistaken with zero-g basketball) and saw it there :D

I think it's more down to the sensitivity of the stick, added to that as Comment
12(Spug) said: Move back and to the left. Gives you a much greater range of vision for firing!

i found the last round way easier with the pulse rifile

I didn't think this was very difficult at all. I admit, it took me about 3 tries on the final level with the plasma cutter. But you really cannot fail this achievement; just keep trying until you get it.

I got this on my 3d try on level 5. This is all about target discrimination. Don't get too trigger happy and you should do fine. I shot 1 blue target on my first try, and a couple no-fires on the second.

I wonder if 5g is worth this achievement. It's just like the Grunt Bonus in Halo Wars. So close too on level 5 but one red target got in front of another red target when I shot it thus I only got 19/20 rather 20/20.

Part of the problem is how the camera is angled in the third person so some people suggest going all the way to the right and it appears more like an FPS from that angle. The other part of the problem is there is no sensitivity adjustment in the options. By the way no one cares if you got it on the second try, this comment section is for question and tips.

Just started playing this game have to say I'm really impressed. For those who are struggling with this achievement, after each round you can go back to the save starion down the elevator and then carry on from the same round until you complete it.
