Ishimura Dead Space Wiki has a walkthrough guide to this level, Chapter 12: Autopsy. See Chapter 12: Autopsy/Walkthrough.

'Autopsy' is the twelfth chapter of Dead Space 3.


Go to either side of the giant monster and use the consoles to shoot probes into the monster. Use Kinesis on the crank wheels to pull the body open. Now walk over to the front of the room, and get in the cage to investigate the body cavity. Aim with the Probe gun to get an audio signal. The faster the beeping, the closer you are to a nerve cluster to shoot a probe into. Once the first nerve cluster is found, shoot it and prepare yourself. You will be attacked by several skeleton monsters. Kill them off, and find the second nerve cluster. You do not get attacked after shooting this one.Now find the third nerve cluster. A large wave of skeleton monsters will attack you now. Run to the cage, and use it as a choke point to kill them all off easily. Once they are all gone, you will have a short conversation with Santos, then get hauled back up to the main room. Looks like Norton is being a jerk again. Use Kinesis to let yourself out of the cage. Go down the elevator and out towards the suit kiosk. Instead of riding the cargo elevator back up, take a right and go out the door labeled "Exterior Access." This next room has oodles of supplies and a Bench. Make what you need, then go out the door. It looks like Norton not only is a jerk, he's also a mole and a snitch. After the cutscene, kill off the few Unitologists, then prepare for a boss fight. A massive monster will jump up and attack everyone. Use the probe gun to shoot at the monster's yellow heart-like object. After landing a few hits, the monster will start sucking everything in. Use any gun to shoot at the yellow-tipped mandibles. Once they are shot, they will turn into red-tipped mandibles. After turning them all red, keep shooting at the heart. Now you are in the belly of the beast. Literally. Take out the three yellow nodes on each of the three spots (9 nodes total). Dodge the incoming monsters, or shoot them out of your way. Once all nine nodes have been taken care of, you get spit back out. Now, the showdown with Norton. When prompted, You are gonna have to mash A/X while timing your shot correctly to take him out. The Chapter ends here.


Isaac has collected the Nexus probe parts. Now, he must venture deep inside the creature’s enormous, frozen corpse to stimulate its dormant neural pathways. Santos believes that doing this will reveal a signal that points to the Machine’s location.


In order of appearance:


  • Regardless of what weapons the player is carrying at the time, Isaac will shoot Norton using a submachine gun.
