Where To Find Dead Space Remake Foam Finger?

The Foam Finger is definitely the most sought-after weapon in Dead Space Remake, and finding this is not the easiest of tasks. The only way to even access the gun is through playing the game’s hardest difficulty level, “Impossible.

The Impossible mode resembles Hard Mode but is ten steps further in terms of difficulty. There is no autosave in this mode, allowing for manual saves into a single slot. The Necromorphs are stronger, and if you do happen to die, you get reset to the very beginning rather than at the last saved point. The mode may be difficult, some may say impossible, but their nectar is oh so sweet.

Once you complete the Impossible mode in Dead Space Remake, you will be awarded two things:

  1. The Burnished Suit
  2. The Hand Cannon

The gun is known to do colossal amounts of damage to anything it shoots, so well worth the trials and tribulations you have to go through!

Whenever Isaac shoots the gun, he says “Pew” or “Bang” rather than the normal shooting sound. This makes it one of the funny bits of the game, extremely funny the first time you hear it. Who are we kidding? It doesn’t stop being funny ever.
