Ishimura Dead Space Wiki has a walkthrough guide to this level, Chapter 2: On Your Own. See Chapter 2: On Your Own/Walkthrough.
"On Your Own" was the second chapter of Dead Space 3.


Isaac woke up aboard the USM Eudora sometime after their blind shock away from the New Horizons Lunar Colony. John Carver was sitting at the end of a medical table that Isaac was laying on and became short with him after Isaac thanked him for saving him and questioned the photo that Carver carried around of his family. Captain Norton came over the intercom soon after and instructed Isaac and Carver to report to the bridge of the ship because they would be arriving soon. As Isaac and Carver moved through the ship, Norton explained Ellie's mission and her supposed location.

Isaac reached the bridge. The ship was still in transit and Norton ordered the pilot named Rosen to count their arrival down. Immediately after their arrival, Rosen quickly dodged the heavy debris floating in front of the ship. Hovering above the planet was a torn Moon as well as the flotilla. When Locke scanned for Ellie's ship, she got nothing, but multiple transponders from the Sovereign Colonies warships in orbit and an S.O.S from the CMS Roanoke. Norton ordered them to proceed ahead until he mistook the automated mines for the locator beacons. Unable to evade, their ship was hit by several mines and started falling apart.

Isaac traveled through the heavily damaged ship to get to an EVA Suit before manually launching the escape module that carried Locke and Rosen. After being forcefully jettisoned from the Eudora, she was quickly engulfed in flames and Isaac must fly after the escape module along with Norton and Carver dodging the mines and the other debris until they reached the CMS Roanoke.


In order of appearance:

  • Automated Mines.


  • There are random ammo packs and Medical Packs in the hold where you woke up aboard the USM Eudora.
  • You could not gain the EVA Suit until the ship was hit by the mines.
  • This was the first Chapter in the game that a Zero G environment was used.
  • The flight to the CMS Roanoke was similar to the HALO jump in Dead Space 2, except now that you could aim and fire while the action continued.

    • Oh, but  Necromorph shows up in one of them after you open the box - the Brusolov one I think, so be on your guard.
