You can get quite far in Dead Space by using the items, upgrades, or best weapons that naturally come in your path. However, that can get boring and ineffective eventually, which is why Schematics offers you upgrades for Isaac’s suit and many of his weapons. But, finding each of the schematic locations in Dead Space Remake can be quite tricky.
These Schematics can be used in interactive shops to acquire high-leveled materials that can aid you in battle. The schematics offer things such as the Pulse Rounds for taking out Necromorphs more efficiently and larger med packs to recover more of your health. They’re spread across many chapters of the game, with some being completely missable!
- There are 13 Schematics Locations in Dead Space Remake, and they’re located in Chapters 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
- The Pulse Rounds and Stasis Pack can be found in Chapter two.
- Medium Med Pack, Ripper Blades, and Flamethrower Fuel can be found in Chapter three, mostly by following the story.
- The Line Racks can be found in Chapter five, Force Energy in Chapter six, Contact Energy, and Level 4 Suit in Chapter seven, and all of them require extra exploration and even Level 2 Security Clearance.
- The Oxygen Tank can be found in Chapter eight, and the Level 5 Suit in Chapter 10.
- Large Med Pack is completely missable and can only be found in Chapter 9. You can find the rest of the schematics again in Chapter 11.
- Collecting all Schematics will earn you the Merchant Trophy/Achievement.
