Dead Space Remake: How To Unlock Foam Finger?

Here is how you can unlock Foam Finger, a.k.a Hand Cannon.

The in-game name for the item is “Hand Cannon,” but the community at large refers to it as the Foam Finger. So, Foam Finger is the more recognizable term, hence why I used that term in this guide, but we call it the Hand Cannon for the specifics. So please don’t get confused when you see these two terms since they are the same.

Key Takeaways

  •  The Hand Cannon is unlocked only after beating the game on the hardest difficulty.
  • It has been a gag weapon since Dead Space II introduced it.
  • The gun has a new sound effect, and so does Isaac when he fires it.

The only way to access this unique weapon is to complete the game on Impossible Difficulty. There is no other way around it. There is no in-game currency to spend, microtransactions, or secret codes. Just pure skill and determination are the way to your reward.

The Hand Cannon was a gag inclusion in the Dead Space II game. It harkens back to a time in gaming when playing games wasn’t all that complex. It was fun, easy, accessible, and, most of all, fantastic. It wasn’t the developers trying to be money-hungry or trying to monetize everything but rather make something that both of them could enjoy.

Behold the great Dead Space Remake Foam Finger (also known as the Hand Cannon if you want to be a stick in the mud).

This weapon is single-handedly the funniest thing to use in-game as it undercuts the tense and horror tone /atmosphere that the game delicately sets up. But this balance isn’t destroyed wrongly—instead, it creates a funny contrast that amplifies both aspects to a heightened degree.
