On your first play through Dead Space's Achievements may seem very simple and straight-forward. Some of the most difficult achievements will require you to play through Dead Space on the higest difficulty, and that's when things get interesting!

    Dead Space

    dead space cover There are a total of 1000 Gamer Points up for grabs with Dead Space. Not all of them are easy and some of them are secret. Any achievements that are secret are usually a part of the campaign and reading through them before you finish Dead Space could spoil the storyline for you (which is an important part of Dead Space by the way).

    Secret Achievements **SPOILER ALERT**

    dead space Brute Force 15G

    Kill a Brute. Each Brute encounter is forced and there is usually no way to escape so killing it is the only option. Brutes are like mini-bosses and can be quiet hard to kill but since you have to fight them you will definitely unlock this achievement.

    Exterminator 15G

    Kill The Leviathian. The Leviathian is a boss and is quiet difficult to kill on the harder difficulty setings.

    Playing Catch 30G

    Catch a Leviathian or Brute Pod using the Kinesis Module. This is especially easy to get during your boss fight with the Leviathian as it will be throwing a lot of pods at you.

    Mindless Prey 30G

    Kill the hivemind. This achievement is also one that you will get if you complete the game because killing the hivemind is a crucial part of the campaign.

    Don't Get Cocky, Kid 10G

    Survive the ADS Cannon with over 50% shield strength remaining. This is quiet a difficult achievement. There is a save point literally beside the ADS Cannon so i suggest you save your game directly before you use it and keep tryinh until you unlock the achievement.

    Kickin It 10G

    Escape from a Lurker's grab attack 10 times. This is going to take a lot of commitment and possibly saving and loading.

    Slugger 10G

    Kill the Slug Boss with more than 50% shield strength remaining. Again save before and load untl you get it.

    Get Off My Ship! 15G

    Kill the Slug Boss. Also a harder one on the higher difficulty settings.
