1ch

1. Welcome to Dead Space's most controversial level, Chapter 4: Obliteration Imminent.

2ch

2. We'll be getting to the controversies soon enough. Step off the tram and watch Hammond and Kendra argue. Loot the two cabinets ahead, grab the pick-up from inside the waiting area then proceed through the Main Atrium door on the left.

3ch

3. Grab the ammo next to this corpse, mindful of a brief scare.

4ch

4. This Store is at the end of the corridor. I highly recommend purchasing a Flamethrower and at least three canisters of Flame Fuel to be used on an upcoming boss. Do this even if you need to sell some items.

5ch

5. Enter the Atrium and an asteroid crashes through the ceiling. Listen to Kendra's damage report.

6ch

6. Collect the plentiful loot in the Atrium, including five unlocked storage bins and three ammunition pick-ups.

7ch

7. The Initial Attack audio log is found here.

8ch

8. Descend these stairs, availing yourself of the Save Station and the great view.

9ch

9. Ride the lift down to the Captain's Nest and receive a briefing from Hammond. Loot the two unlocked cabinets plus the supply crate in the far corner. Find the List of Dead text log on the captain's chair.

10ch

10. Exit the Captain's Nest and find the Level 3 Suit Schematic (plus a short scare) in front of this pod.

11ch

11. Your navigation beacon leads back to the Main Atrium and this Security Room door. As you approach the door, your next Necromorph type, the Brute, smashes through. Time for a mini-boss battle.

12ch

12. Turn around and head for the stairs, where you'll be safe.

13ch

13. A true tank, the Brute is heavily armored from the front. Unlike traditional tanks, however, he is very fast and has devastating offensive capabilities. Being somewhat unbalanced, this Brute is the first controversial aspect of Chapter 4.

14ch

14. Hammond radios that you should attack the Brute from behind. But a better way to kill the brute is to cut off its easy to hit limbs. You can see the vulnerable red and yellow areas where you should be aiming. The Brute will not stand still to make this easy for you, hence my preference for the Flamethrower.

15ch

15. A less-than-pinpoint weapon, the Flamethrower blankets the back of the Brute in fire. Plus, the flames provide damage-over-time as the Brute retreats. Repeat the pattern of luring him out, then retreating to the stairs and firing on his back as he retreats. You can also attack him from behind after he balls-up armadillo-style, or when using Stasis, but the Brute is somewhat immune to its effects.

16ch

16. Cut one of the Brutes limbs of and it will start lobbing yellow projectiles from its chest. You can catch them with Kinesis and throw them back.

17ch

17. Once defeated, the Brute gives up 5,000 Credits, 3,000 credits, or a power node. The path forward is through the Security Room door on the right, but first I backtrack through the door on the left to the store.

18ch

18. Time to use that Level 3 Suit Schematic and upgrade those threads! The Level 3 Suit grants 10% armor protection and 17 inventory slots. I recommend placing your Flamethrower in the Safe to maximize your preferred ammo type for pick-ups (in my case Line Racks and Plasma Energy.)

19ch

19. Pass through the Security Room door then Watch this brief video, apparently from Nicole.

20chh

20. A Power Node is on the left, and the control to activate the Atrium elevators and update your objectives is on the right. Inside the Storage Room are two lockers, a supply crate and an Upgrade Bench.

21ch

21. With my Plasma Cutter's damage at maximum, it's time to turn my attention to my favorite weapon for dealing with multiple enemies, the Line Gun. I spend all five of my Power Nodes to upgrade the Line Gun's damage to level 4. Feel free to allocate all of your Power Nodes, as you'll be getting a new Power Node shortly.

22ch

22. Enter the now-functional elevator to Ship Systems Level.

23ch

23. Inside is the Captain's Demise video log. A blood-curdling scream is heard as the lift approaches its destination.

24ch

24. Exit the lift then find a wall cabinet to the left, plus a supply crate, a storage bin and a Save Station.

25ch

25. Grab the Contact Beam Schematic then raid Storage A for a wall cabinet, a Stasis Recharge and a supply crate. Just make sure to get the first shot at the Slasher playing dead.

26ch

26. Storage A also holds the fourth clue to the 5-Node Cheat. This time the right arrow lights up green, indicating that the fourth character of the cheat is X.

27ch

27. Continue right and get an update from Kendra about these Gravity panels. They are deadly when stepped on - a danger, yes, but also an opportunity. Don't miss this ammo pick-up on the far right.

28ch

28. You can lure the Necromorphs into these gravity panels for an instant-kill. Other options include using the Force Gun to push them onto the panels, or Stasis them and push them onto the panels.

29ch

29. Eliminate five Necromorphs on the Gravity Panels and earn the Ragdoll Check Achievement.

30ch

30. Grab another ammo pick-up on the left, then discover this Stasis Recharge at the end of the hall. Kinesis clears the crates from the doorway to the left.

31ch

31. Uh-oh, another Brute. Don't panic, though, this one is red all over. You'll have much less difficulty bringing down this Brute, no matter what your weapon.

32ch

32. The corpse drops a Power Node, 5,000 credits, or 3,000 credits, same as the brute before. Carefully approach the flailing cables ahead.

33CH

33. Stasis the cables to hold them still while you walk around and activate the first of three ADS Power Panels to update your objective.

34ch

34. Backtrack toward the Atrium, defeating these two Slashers as you approach the Save Station. Fill up at the Stasis Recharge inside Storage A -- you're going to need it.

35ch

35. Jeepers creepers who called out the Leapers? Step off the Atrium elevator then quickly take cover. More Leapers than you can shake a Stasis stick at attack from every corner.

36ch

36. Feel free to return to the Store for supplies before entering this elevator to the Mining Admin and Comm Array Levels.

37ch

37. The Atrium is Level 2, and you can choose to ride up to Level 3 or down to Level 1, it doesn't matter (unless you want the Aim the ADS Cannon audio log, in which case you need to start with Level 3).

38ch

38. Since many of you are probably here looking to get the Aim the ADS Cannon audio log, I'll start by going to Level 3. Exit the lift and witness Zombie Man stagger away. The Temple on the Bridge text log is to the right. A cabinet, storage bin and the Force Gun Schematic are here as well.

39ch

39. This Save Station is in the next hallway, along with two more unlocked cabinets.

40ch

40. A Pregnant and an enhanced Slasher attack in the next room. Be sure not to fire when aiming at the Pregnant's belly as I am here, or else he'll birth a Swarm. And that is never good.

41ch

41. Use this panel to activate the second of three ADS power panels.

42ch

42. Head back to the lift. This time, ride it down to Level 1.

43ch

43. Step off the left and find two storage bins and a Save Station. Continue through the door ahead.

44ch

44. The bulkhead on the right gives way and you are in a vacuum once again. An Upgrade Bench, a storage locker and a wall cabinet are in the room ahead. Hang on to a Power Node to unlock an upcoming door.

45ch

45. Follow the corridor to the Mining Admin room and take out a pair of enhanced Slashers.

46ch

46. On the left is Storage Room B, where you'll find an unlocked cabinet.

47ch

47. Navigate between the gravity panels. Lots, o corpses are here. An Infector is about to show itself and you don't want these corpses becoming Necromorphs. So cut off the arms of the corpses for free stuff!

48ch

48. If you choose to spend a Power Node on Storage Room C you'll find two unlocked lockers, a supply crate, a Large Med Pack, 5,000 Credits, a Gold Semiconductor and a wall cabinet.

49ch

49. Defeat a Lurker as you walk between the gravity panels to this third ADS Power Panel. Activate it to complete the objective and receive the Aim the ADS Cannon audio log from Hammond, directing you to take the lift to the top of the ship (Level 3.) If you had powered these last two panels as directed by your navigation beam you would have missed this log. Note the Small Med Pack to the right.

50ch

50. Battle this Infector on the way out. You'll also have to contend with a number of enhanced Slashers depending on whether you stomped or shot the corpses, earlier.

51ch

51. Don't miss this Computer Room before exiting.

52ch

52. Inside is the Report of Infection text log and an unlocked cabinet. A Power Node, storage bin and Supply Crate are through the next door.

53ch

53. Here's your new objective. Take the elevator up to level 3 so you can manually fire the Asteroid Defense System (ADS).

54ch

54. Use the Save Station after exiting the lift. Proceed through the now-available Ship Exterior Access door, then enter Storage Room 47 on the right. Inside is a pick-up, a supply crate and an unlocked locker.

55ch

55. Rid the lift to Ship Exterior Access. Ever wonder what that "bib" is on Isaac's suit? This angle lets you see that it is a display of some sort.

56ch

56. Receive an audio transmission from Hammond. Grab the Medium Air Can on the right, then proceed to the airlock.

57ch

57. Do as Hammond says and take cover immediately after exiting the airlock. Meteors are whizzing by and will mean instant death if you don't hide behind these bulkheads. The meteors aren't easily seen and death seems to come from nowhere if you don't understand what exactly is going on. This is another controversial aspect of Chapter 4.

58ch

58. Rush to the next bulkhead once there is a lull in the meteor storm and repeat to reach the other side safely. Press your left bumper to run, and bypass the bulkheads on the right to save time. Use the Medium Air Can before your air runs out when you are about half way across.

59ch

59. Here is the door to re-enter the Ishimura.

60ch

60. Grab the Ruby Semiconductor by the Save Station then smash the supply crate in the corner. Use this panel to take a seat at the mass driver cannon.

61ch

61. Welcome to the most controversial segment of Chapter 4. Your task is to destroy the onslaught of asteroids long enough for Hammond to repair the ADS. Like an arcade-style shooter of years past, this segment of the game is all about reflexes.

62ch

62. The problem is that the controls are less-than-responsive, and missed asteroids lower your hull integrity with a quickening pace.

63ch

63. For many gamers, this screen is frustratingly repeated.

64ch

64. My advice is to fire a barrage of several shots at each target, especially the larger asteroids which will split up into smaller rocks. Don't panic when you let an asteroid hit the ship. Note that you have two guns to fire, one with each trigger. Turn up the brightness of your display to spot the meteors sooner. This 41 is the best I could do -- my hat's off to those of you who finished above 50% and earned the Don't Get Cocky, Kid achievement. (one shot is usually good enough for the smaller rocks. save the  barrage for larger rocks so you aviod over heating. try to get the rocks before they leave the center screen. use you shots to spot oncoming asteriods the light from you shots flash off of oncoming meteors making them easier to spot and take out sooner i finished the mission with a shield strength of 65. 

65ch

65. A pair of Leapers are outside as you backtrack; running passed them saves air. Note that there is an Oxygen Recharge Station at the last bulkhead on the left.

66ch

66. Watch a video transmission from Kendra and Hammond before reaching the lift, then battle these Divider segments after stepping off.

67ch

67. Continue backtracking to the Tram. Two Slashers attack near the Store.

68ch

68. Lastly, step onto the Tram and use the panel to end this controversial level.
