For Dead Space Remake players who are collecting achievements, this is a complete guide for getting all achievements in game, let’s check it out,
Don’t worry about the audio/text log related achievements. These is extremely hard to miss as most logs are along the main story path. If you do miss it, get it in NG+.
The only thing you should worry about are weapons, upgrades, and schematics. I have everything listed in order under the “Merchant” achievement. I’d recommend following it as you play.
Everything in chapter 9 is missable so be careful! Pay close attention to logs and schematics. Also, the ‘Front Towards Enemy’ achievement is earned here.
This can be done in 2 runs if playing on impossible difficulty from the start and doing NG+ on impossible mode too. However, that means no autosaves and only getting 1 manual save. So you will most likely complete 3 runs for all achievements.
This is a completely handwritten guide. Any item/collectable you need can be found by using CTRL + F and entering what you’re looking for in the text box.
