How To Engage The Cargo Crane?

Most of it is very simple. Thankfully, just like most quests, the navigator will guide the player for the most part. Once you reach the cargo hanger, that is where it can get confusing for some players because now the navigation turns off. Here, you will have to figure out what to do yourself.

Moreover, the area is filled to the brim with tendrils, and shooting them down is compulsory for progression in the chapter. The entirety of Chapter 11 revolves around simultaneously shooting Necromorphs and trying your best to escort the Marker

After taking care of all of the other enemies, start off by shooting the tendrils in their weak glowing spots. Destroying these is almost instantaneous, as usual. They look like big tumors, and there are about three of them you will need to destroy. 

Furthermore, when you have shot these down, you are pretty much done with the objective. Now all you have to do is make your way to the other side of the area. Here, as shown in the image we have provided above, press the action button to retrieve the cargo. 

After you press the button, you are done. Now the rest of the Chapter is very simple and requires little to no brain power to figure out. All you have to do is escort the Marker out of there and to a safer and more secure spot. 

Getting The Peng Treasure & Other Loot

Other than the tendrils stopping the players from engaging the cargo crane in Dead Space Remake. There is a lot of loot lying around the area that will catch their attention too. Make sure you collect everything, especially the extremely valuable Peng treasure

As you can see in the screenshot provided by us. You will need to use your Dead Space Stasis Module to move the containers out of the way. The Peng treasure is literally located directly behind them in a locker. It is here, and it is just as valuable as it has always been. 

We highly recommend that you take your time in the area. Explore every corner and open up all the lockers. At this point in the game, you are quite literally almost done with the entire experience. So make sure you have all the resources needed to go out with a bang. 

All the ammo lying around will also make sure that you don’t run out while fighting the hordes of Necromorphs. It is among the most fun sections of the original as well as the remake. Akin to most other action-packed areas in the game, it can also turn into a nightmare in the Impossible difficulty mode in Dead Space.

Wrapping Up

Fans would love to see a Dead Space 2 Remake in the future, as is evident by this Subreddit post. Motive Studio has put out what many are considering a perfect remake. Fans of the genre are already counting the remake among the best horror games of all time, right up there with some Resident Evil titles. 

The action here also keeps the game more accessible to casual horror fans. So, if you enjoy stuff like Doom or Dying Light, then it is highly likely that you will have a good time in Dead Space. The new remake has turned into the best possible revival that the fans could’ve hoped for.
