|“||This is Benson, tram engineering. We think we've figured it out. Smith killed one! Listen, forget about shooting them in the body, you gotta cut off the limbs. Grab a cutter anything like that. Cut them apart!||”|
Benson is a member of Tram Engineering aboard the USG Ishimura. Similar to Jacob Temple, a fellow engineer, the player never encounters Benson in person but can find several audio Logs that have been left by him, mainly detailing the discovery of the Necromorphs' movement through the ventilation system and their weakness to dismemberment. His early logs indicate he was with a small pack of survivors who were slowly killed off by Necromorphs. It is unknown what became of Benson, but given the obvious fates of the rest of the crew it is likely that he perished, and may have been transformed into a Necromorph.
- As the Tram was still in operation at the end of Dead Space, it is possible that Benson was still alive when the USG Kellion arrived.
- It is also possible that he was the panicked man behind the door in the room where you get the Plasma cutter.
