Bonus ContentEdit


  • The only way to obtain the Rivet Gun without pre-ordering Dead Space 2 is to buy the Supernova DLC pack.
  • The Hacker Suit & the matching Contact Beam are the only bonus content that you need schematics for and that you need to pay for.
  • Overall, the Hazard Pack was somewhat outclassed by content available in the standard game and the other packs available, mostly the Supernova Pack. The primary advantage was the availability of the suits and weapons early on in the game and that they are free, but when compared to the other packs and content already in the game, the only advantages that the Hazard Pack had are the Javelin Gun variant and the Ripper variant.
    • The 10% healing bonus of the Hazard Engineering Suit was beaten by the 15% bonus of the Forged Engineering Suit. The matching Line Guns had the same bonuses of reload speed and alt-fire damage, but the Forged Line Gun had an alt-fire bonus of 10% where the Hazard Line Gun had a bonus of 5%.
    • The 5% decrease in Stasis recharge of the Shockpoint Advanced Suit held no bonus over the 50% decrease of the Advanced Suit which is available in the standard game. The maching ShockPoint Ripper, when compared to the Forged Ripper is more personal choice as the ShockPoint variant had a 5% reload bonus where the Forged variant had a 10% alt-fire bonus.
    • The Triage Security Suit's 5% bonus to Stasis duration was beaten by the 10% bonus of the Agility Advanced Suit. The matching Javelin Gun was comparable to the variant available in the Martial Law Pack as they held the same reload speed bonus, but the Triage variant had a 10% damage bonus where the Bloody variant had a 10% alt-fire bonus.
  • The downloadable content was really helpful in the great difficulty games. Each DLC suit restored entirely your health for free when equipped for the first time and each DLC weapon can be freely reloaded by selling and rebuying it for 0 credit at the Store. Since the upgrade of any weapon applied to the other variants, you have not been able to give up upgrading your weapons for this trick as long as you have downloaded the matching variants. You must just take care to keep always one copy at least (Preferably the standard costing weapon) on Isaac or in the Safe.
