Shooting them in the body didn't seem to work. Go for the limbs, dismember them. That should do the job.

NotesEdit

  1. These insulated suits were worn by a SCAF deep dig team assigned to exhume the darkest secrets of Tau Volantis. Whatever they found locked deep in the ice changed them forever. When they emerged weeks later, they were covered head to toe in strange graffiti and claimed to be “Witnesses to the Truth.”
  2. Dead Space takes place three years before the events of Dead Space 2.
  3. The sixth emergency shuttle was destroyed by the Ishimura when it attempted to land.
  4. There exist two different scenarios regarding the Captain's death: in a video log recovered by Isaac Clarke, it appears that Doctor T. Kyne deliberately stabs a syringe into the captain's eye and into his brain, killing him. In stark contrast, in Downfall, the Captain struggles free and lunges at Kyne and the syringe goes into his eye. At this time, all that is known is that Kyne killed the Captain.
  5. At this time, it is unknown by what means all emergency shuttles were launched.
  6. Campbell: "The planet is Aegis VII. It was virtually destroyed in a mining accident three weeks ago."
  7. Samplane123: DS2 takes place in 2511, not 2510. See the video log 'Lights Out 2' in chapter 6. The video is timestamped 2/7/2511. Steve's reply on twitter was most likely a typo, the correct date of the first game being 2508.
