  • Players can exchange the ammunition for credits in the game that they can use to get new RIGs and Weapon Nodes as well as Medical Packs in the game. 

How To Get Infinite Ammo 

In the Dead Space Remake, ammunition is a very scarce resource, and you will have to face mobs of enemies at once as you progress. You will always be running low on health, and with progression, the enemies will become stronger and increase in number as well.

Therefore it is important always to have a high amount of ammunition to counter these enemies. One of the Reddit users called u/Mrthrowawaymcgee found an infinite ammo glitch in Dead Space Remake that will allow players to get free ammunition that they can exchange for other useful items in the game. But before the exploit, it is important to meet certain requirements. 


Following are the requirements and items you need in order to perform the exploit. You need to have these items in inventory otherwise, the exploit won’t work.

Pulse Rifle 

The first item that you need is the Pulse Rifle which is a weapon in the game. The weapon can be obtained by progressing in the Dead Space Remake.

You will be able to get the pulse rifle as soon as you reach the Flight Deck Tram Station. This tram station is located in the Hangar Cargo Tram Control. It can be found in Chapter One, called New Arrivals. Keep in mind that the exploit will only work with the pulse rifle weapon, and you cannot use any other weapon or equipment in the game for the exploit. 

Power Nodes 

The players will also need a minimum of four nodes. However, we recommend that if you want to increase the chances of this exploit working, you should have at least seven nodes in your inventory. The maximum number of nodes you can have for the exploit is 13.

These are required to put the pulse rifle weapon on the Bench. You will be able to use any extra nodes that you have not installed into a weapon yet. Furthermore, you will also be able to use nodes by getting them from other gear, including weapons and equipment.

If you start with four nodes for the exploit, you will be able to make a little profit. That is why you need a maximum of seven nodes for an optimal amount of Ammunition Farming. Any extra node you have will speed up the process, and you will be able to farm ammunition faster. 

Resetting All Upgrades 

In case you don’t have sufficient nodes for the exploit to work, you can always reset upgrades to get the nodes of a particular weapon. For that, you will have to find a Bench in the game where you can upgrade your suit as well as your weapons and equipment.

You will be able to upgrade your gear by installing nodes in the gear upgrade tree. These nodes are found during the main story progression. If you don’t have enough nodes and want to reset all upgrades for a particular equipment through the upgrade tree, you can do so by spending 5000 credits.

Hit the X button or square button, and it will automatically uninstall all the node upgrades. Any node upgrades that you have uninstalled for that particular weapon will be returned to you automatically. If you want more nodes, then you will have to spend 5000 credits more on each of the weapons in the game. 

Where To Use The Exploit 

While you will be able to use the exploit anywhere in the game, we recommend you use it near a Shop and Bench. This is because you will be able to excess the items you need for the exploit easily and also save a lot of time. The exploit can be done as early as in Chapter One, New Arrivals. You will be able to use the exploit in a certain area.

To get to the optimal location and perform the exploit, you need to head toward the Hangar Cargo Tram Control. Then you need to make your way to the flight deck tram station. In the tram station, you will find a Shop nearby as well as a bench.

In order to find the bench, you will need to make your way through the medical door. If you want to perform the exploit later on in the game, then a good option is to do the exploit at the start of Chapter 7, called Into The Void. You will be able to perform the exploit in the RIG room by progressing through the chapter. 

Upgrading Gun Capacity 

In order for the exploit to work, you will have to upgrade the weapons capacity. You can do this by refilling the clip on the bench. Furthermore, the capacity of each weapon will be upgraded by using a node. However, you will be using all the free ammunition you get by trading it for other items.

This is why only the Pulse Rifle weapon will work for the exploit. The Alternate Fire of the pulse rifle will allow you to use a Proximity Mine in that area. For the alternate fire, you will have to press R1 instead of R2. Each proximity mine that you will use in the combat will cost you 25 bullets each.

But the best part about it is that you will be able to get back the proximity mine in case it does not explode. In order to get the proximity mine that you just planted back, you will need to press R1. Therefore you will be able to sell the ammunition in case you don’t reload your weapon. 

Step By Step Process 

Following are all the steps you need to follow in order for the exploit to work. 

  • Make sure you perform these steps by standing near a bench. 
  • The first step is to plant down as many Proximity Mines as you can. Make sure to plant a lot of them, and don’t reload while doing so. Then you need to pick them back up by hitting the R1 button in order to get the ammunition you spend on them back. 
  • Next, you need to make your way to the Bench. Now open the menu and click on Reset All on your pulse rifle. Doing so will reset all the nodes if you have upgraded your weapon. Now you need to upgrade the first node of the weapon. After that, you need to refill your clip.

  • Any free ammo that you have need to be planted down as proximity mines. Then you need to collect them again to get the ammo from it. 
  • Visit the bench again and upgrade once more to fill up the next capacity slot. Now refill your clip and plant down proximity mines, and then continue collecting them. 
  • You need to repeat these steps until you use up all your nodes and upgrades. 
  • In case you have some extra cash, you can reset the nodes and keep repeating the process. 
  • After that, you need to get all the free ammo you just farmed and sell it at the shop. 

You will be able to do it as much as you like. Each stack of 100 ammunition will provide you with around 2500 credits in the game. However, this is valid only for hard difficulty mode. 

Exchanging Ammo For Credits

For seven nodes, you will get around 8000 credits if you start with no bullets and use all capacity upgrades of the pulse rifle. For the 5000 credits you will have to spend, you will be able to obtain around 2500 credits with this exploit if performed correctly.

You will be able to perform the exploit as much as you can and be able to farm a lot of bullets for you to exchange for other items in the shop. 

You can use this free ammunition to get credits for upgrading your equipment. By using the exploit, not only will you get free ammunition but free credits as well. You just need to look for a good location where your enemies will not be able to spawn. For that, you will have to avoid the Intensity Director algorithm Dead Space Remake. The hangar cargo tram control is by far the best place to perform this infinite ammo glitch in Dead Space Remake.

This is because the animals will not be able to spawn inside it all around it. If you want to get the most out of the exploit, we recommend that you look at all treasure items in the game. Furthermore, you should also try to find valuable Peng Statue that you can use. Make sure to sell any extra items as well to upgrade your nodes like the oxygen tanks that you almost never use. 

Using Pulse Rifle Upgrades 

A great way you will be able to enhance this exploit is by upgrading your pulse rifle. 

Kinetic Auto Loader Upgrade

There is a pulse rifle upgrade called the Kinetic Auto Loader Upgrade that you will be able to buy in order to get the maximum out of this exploit. The upgrade is available at the shop to buy 10,000 credits in the game. By getting the upgrade, you will be able to unlock two more capacity nodes.

Therefore the capacity of your weapon will increase to 20 slots. Furthermore, you will also be able to get a pulse rifle to upgrade in Chapter 4 called the Obliteration Imminent. In order to get the upgrade, you will have to defeat the brute waiting for you in the main Atrium.

You can find the brute on the bridge. Now you will have to make your way to an elevator where you first encountered the brute and make your way to floor three. There you will be able to defeat the brute in the Dead Space Remake. Now you need to head towards a room called the Electrical Systems Storage. Thus you can upgrade to get the most out of the infinite ammo glitch in Dead Space Remake.

PCSI Custom Magazine Upgrade

You will need to make your way to a room where a corpse will be smashed through a glass window, and you need to pull the corpse out of it. After that, you need to use the Kinesis Module to move all boxes that are covering the door. Next, you need to look for a fuse near the door after clearing all the boxes in front of it.

The fuse will be found on the left side of the door, and you need to interact with it. By doing so, you will be able to unlock the room. Head inside the room, and you will see some lockers that you can access. However, in order to open the lockers, you will need Security Level 3. You will be able to obtain some credits here and also get a PCSI Custom Magazine Upgrade for the pulse rifle weapon. 

 This upgrade will grant the players two more Capacity Nodes. Furthermore, the players will also be able to get a Special 2 Node that will provide the players with an increased ammunition capacity. By using the upgrade, your ammunition capacity will increase by 20 instead of the usual ten that you get with the weapon upgrade. So you will be able to add 20 bullets to your clip.

This is an early game upgrade, so it is recommended that you try to unlock it first before you go ahead and perform the exploit. If you have bought the upgrades of the pulse rifle, you will be able to get 13 nodes. Your ammunition capacity will be 160 with both of these upgrades, and you will be able to get around 23,000 credits for each reset you perform.

The process itself will not take much of your time, and it is definitely worth trying if you are struggling to get upgrades for your equipment due to a lack of credits.
