|Chronological and political information|
ANTI was a holographic administration system which took the form of a woman. She attempted to impede Isaac Clarke's progress on restoring power to the Sprawl by activating the Solar Array in Dead Space 2 on Chapter 7.
Not much is known about ANTI, as no details are given about her outside of the logs found in the Solar Array. What the acronym stands for is unknown.
She is first encountered as Isaac enters the base of the Solar Array in Chapter 7 of Dead Space 2. At first, she does nothing and simply watches Isaac as he moves around the room. When approaching the door leading to the Solar Array, ANTI announces that the identification check has failed, and that Isaac needs to be with Howard Phillips to access the Array. To pass the door, Isaac needs to find Howard Phillips, the watchman in charge of the Array. Once he's found, Isaac can pass through the door's security scans with Phillips, and can then enter the corridor.
ANTI detects Isaac's RIG in addition to Howard Phillips', and asks for his voice imprint to allow his guest access. She activates laser trip mines to impede Isaac's progress. In the next corridor, ANTI purges life support as Isaac is attacked by two Stalkers.
Finally, as Isaac reaches ANTI's core, Hans Tiedemann orders ANTI to lock the core down to stop Isaac from accessing the array. After Isaac rearranges several fuses, ANTI's core becomes exposed. Isaac then destroys the core. ANTI begins to shut down slowly until her voice and image fade, as the doors to the array unlock and the lockdown is lifted.
There is a chance that ANTI has either gone rogue or is unstable, as Howard Phillips had logged 23 separate transfer requests, and has received no replies. The logs suggested he wanted to leave but did not, so ANTI may have prevented him from doing so. ANTI is unaware that Phillips is dead, as she repeatedly requests his assistance in preventing Isaac's progress. She does seem to have the capabilities to communicate with the rest of Titan Station, as she accepts commands from Tiedemann.
- You earn the Achievement/Trophy "Shut Down" for defeating ANTI.
- Through logs found in Howard Phillips quarters and beyond, it can be discerned he himself is becoming unstable, possibly because of Site 12 Marker.
- ANTI is similar to HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Both are computer A.I.s that follow secret orders that no one, not even the person who is close to them are aware. They also try to impede the protagonist's progress of trying to shut them down and in both cases, they fail to do so.
