'What Lies Below' is the sixteenth chapter of Dead Space 3.
Tau Volantis’ secret is revealed: the Machine wasn’t created to start Convergence – it was created to stop it. The aliens built the Machine to freeze the true enemy; the Necromorph moon. Isaac must now stop Danik from shutting down the Machine.
Through the door, Get through it and you can see Danik descending into the planet. If you look at your buddy, you can see a weapon part at his feet. Use Kinesis to pull it over. There is also a Bench and a few supply crates. Now go over to the console, and start going down yourself. Shoot at the Necromorphs while descending. Once you get to the platform half-way down, get to the elevator and take it down. You get to another platform. Walk around it to find a weapon part, and a console to let you continue your way down. You now are fighting against Unitologists. Take out the bridges that these guys are fighting on easily by targeting the large red stacks of dynamite. Dodge attacks easier by jumping. There is also a weapon part that can be grabbed with Kinesis from a bridge. Continue down, and kill the guys shooting at you from the central platform. Once you reach a ledge, go to the right through a door. There is aWeapon part immediately to the left once through the door. Now use the console to unlock the next door. This next room has lots of goodies, including an Audio log, weapon part, bench, and suit kiosk. There is also a new suit at the kiosk to use! As you go to leave, there is an Upgrade circuit on the wall right by the exit door. Go through the next door, and kill off the enemies. Now go to the console and again continue downward. Keep jumping down, shooting the small monsters that pop out to attack you. Once you get far enough down, you will trigger a cutscene that introduces some bigger monsters. Fight off the one attacking you on the wall. Once you get to the bottom, there will be another one attacking some Unitologists. Hang back and watch as they beat each other up. Once a victor is left standing, kill them off from the safety of hanging on the side of a wall. Drop down when it's safe to. In this area is a Blueprint and a weapon part with other supplies. Deploy a scavenger bot right in front of the door. Now, go through the door into a room with a massive fan at the top. Time to keep going down. You get attacked by a big Necromorph right at the start, then another one further down as well. One more will try to attack you at the very end, but he doesn't get very far. Use Stasis on the big fan to get passed it. When you get tangled up in the fan, mash A/X to get free and drop to the platform below. The Chapter ends here.
