Dead Space Chapter 4 Collectibles Guide - Obliteration Imminent

Last Update: January 27, 2023


Isaac wearing the Intermediate Engineer RIG in Chapter 4 of Dead Space

The remake of Dead Space is now out and it's time for Isaac to step back onto the Ishimura and witness the horror of the marker that was found on Aegis VII. As you progress through the game you'll encounter a wide variety of collectibles and equipment whether they be the text or data logs that reveal more of what happened aboard the Ishimura or upgrades for your guns and Engineer Suit. In this Dead Space Chapter 4 Collectibles Guide - Obliteration Imminent, we'll go over where everything you'll want to collect is so that you can get the whole picture.

Unlike the original Dead Space, there are a lot more secrets to reveal and backtracking to perform that manifest as locked doors with certain security clearances. You'll obtain more of these as you make your way through the story so it's in your best interest to progress through the game to the point where you have Security Clearance 3 before you decide to fully commit to returning to previous areas of the Ishimura. This will ensure you only need to backtrack once.
