The main protagonist of Dead Space Remake may not be a soldier, but the weapons and gadgets he has access to sometimes make him better for it, and upgrades definitely help. Here are all the Dead Space Remake schematics and their locations.
Dead Space Remake: All Schematics Locations
Dead Space Remake certainly upgraded from the original game in terms of graphics, controls, and versatility, and it makes sure to bring that same attitude toward the players. Aside from the usual suits, weapons, and gear, several schematics have been spread throughout the game. Schematics are items that unlock different upgrades at shops during the game. You can find a total of 13 different schematics in Dead Space Remake.
There are 13 schematics in Dead Space Remake.
Every schematic unlocks a certain item, weapon, or armour at the shop.
The items that schematics unlock give the player certain upgrades; either by themselves or combined with some other weapon and such.
Items still cost credits at the shop after acquiring their schematics.
Table of Contents
The Pulse Rounds Schematic is the first schematic in Dead Space Remake and is available in Chapter 2 of the game: Intensive Care. It is located on a table to your left at the entrance of the Coolant Pipelines.
Pulse Rounds are the ammo used for the Pulse Rifle, found in the same chapter of the game at the fourth-floor Medical Tram Station. The Pulse Rounds can also be obtained as loot and will cost 1,250 credits at the shop.
The Stasis Pack Schematic is the second schematic available in Chapter 2 of the game. You can find it in the Main Lab Changing Room, which is on the immediate left of Dr Brenner’s office.
This Stasis Pack is used to get Stasis Energy for the Stasis Module. You can buy the Stasis Pack after acquiring the schematic for 1,250 credits.
Medium Med PackSchematic
The Medium Med Pack Schematic is the first of three schematics available in Chapter 3 of Dead Space Remake: Course Correction. It’s placed in a locker in the next room after completing the Decontamination Room quarantine.
The Medium Med Pack recovers some of your health. A “medium” amount, if you will. After finding the schematic, you can buy the item for 5,000 credits.
The Ripper Blades Schematic is also in Chapter 3. It is pretty easy to spot; placed on a box in the open next to the second elevator. You will have to take the first elevator down to see it, in an empty room close to the Fuel Storage Room.
The Ripper Blades can be bought for 1,500 credits once you have the schematic, and they are used with the Ripper, a tool that helps cut through rock. More rarely, they can be found as loot as well.
The Flamethrower Fuel Schematic is the final schematic available in Chapter 3 of the game. Situated quite nicely right in the middle of your quest, you will find it in the Engine Room right next to the Primary Engine panel screen that you must activate in order to proceed with the game.
Simply put, it is fuel for the flamethrower. Promising to be one of the more popular schematics, being incredibly useful against groups of enemies as it quickly pushes enemies back with a blazing fire, causing them quite a bit of damage. You will be able to get it for 1,750 credits after you have the schematic.
Intermediate Engineer RIGSchematic
The Intermediate Engineer RIG Schematic is the only schematic present in Chapter 4 of the game: Obliteration Imminent. You will come across it on your way to the ADS Cannons, which you must calibrate. On our way, you will find the EVA Prep Room to your right, where the schematic is placed on a bench.
More commonly known as the Level 3 Suit, the Intermediate Engineer RIG is categorised as armour that, when equipped, gives you 10% damage resistance. It also grants the additional perk of increasing your inventory slots to 22. Once you have the schematic, you will be able to buy it from the shop for 20,000 credits.
Chapter 5 – Lethal Devotion – also contains only one schematic: The Line Racks Schematic. After exiting the Observation Room, avoid the elevator and proceed through the next door. You will find Dr B. Warwick’s office to your right, where the Line Racks Schematic is on the desk. However, keep in mind that the office can only be accessed if you have Security Clearance Level 2.
The Line Racks Schematic allows you to buy Line Racks, the ammo required for the Line Gun. the Line Gun is one of the most popular weapons in Dead Space, able to cause an impressive amount of damage to enemies. While also sometimes found as loot from defeating enemies and such, you will be able to buy Line Racks from the shop for 2,100 credits after locating the schematic.
Following the pattern, the Force Energy Schematic is the only schematic you will find in Chapter 6: Environmental Hazard. It is placed in the middle of the first and second electricity traps located in the Air Filtration Tower. You will have to use Stasis to get the schematic through the traps.
The Force Energy Schematic unlocks Force Energy at the shop, which powers the Force Gun. the weapon can then be bought for 2,400 credits from the shop or attained as an item from drops. Not a very versatile gun but excellent for short-range fighting.
Pleasantly, the Contact Energy Schematic is one of the two schematics stationed in Chapter 7: Into the Void. Before getting this schematic, you will have to enter Deck B: Processing and defeat the Necromorph swarm you encounter there. After defeating the monsters, you’ll find a locked door in the area after a bit of looking around. Find the broken window of the room and shoot the locks to access it. You’ll see the schematic right on the desk.
Contact energy behaves as ammo for the Contact Beam. With its quick precision, the weapon is perfect for getting out of a tricky corner. Once you have the schematic, Contact Energy can be bought for 2,000 credits.
Intermediate Miner RIGSchematic
The Intermediate Miner RIG Schematic is the second schematic in Chapter 7. Another schematic that you can find while simply following the main storyline. When you look for the SOS Beacon in the Equipment Workshop, you will find the schematic sitting on the opposite end of the room from the Beacon.
The Intermediate Miner RIG is also referred to as the Level 4 Suit. it is another armour for your player, a step up from the Intermediate Engineer RIG. It increases your Damage Resistance to 15% and increases your inventory space to 26 slots. The only way to obtain the suit is by getting the schematic and buying it from the shop for 35,000 credits.
Returning to the norm, the Oxygen Tank Schematic is the only schematic available in Chapter 8 of Dead Space Remake: Search and Rescue. Once again, you will need Security Clearance Level 2 to access the Refueling Control Stations on Floor 4, where the schematic is located on the table in the Platform Storage Room.
The Oxygen Tank Schematic allows you to buy the Oxygen Tank in the shop and find it as an item in the game as well. It fills your oxygen supplies immediately when used, making it invaluable in times of crisis. It costs 2,500 credits in the shop.
Large Med PackSchematic
The Large Med Pack Schematic is found in Chapter 9: Dead on Arrival. You must be cautious about this schematic since it is missable. Once you’ve left it behind, you can’t come back to collect it. When you enter the Infirmary as part of the main storyline, you will find the schematic right before you reach the broken lasers. Remember, it becomes unavailable to you later in the game, so be sure to look for it properly.
The Large Med Pack is another item used to recover health. It is similar to the Medium Med Pack; only it recovers a much more substantial amount of health. It can be bought at the shop for 10,000 credits.
Advanced Engineering RIG Schematic
The final schematic spread throughout Dead Space Remake is the Advanced Engineering RIG Schematic found in Chapter 10 of the game: End of Days. Appropriately named. When you’re trying to find the Crew Deck Key, you’ll find the schematic in the Standard Bathrooms of the Crew Quarters.
The Advanced Engineering RIG is one of the best upgrades in the game. It is the last armour available to you on your first game playthrough, known as the Level 5 Suit. It increases your Damage Resistance to 30% and gives you 30 inventory slots. You will be able to buy it for 60,000 credits once you have the schematic.
There you have it. As far as schematics in Dead Space Remake go, you’re as prepared as possible. We recommend that you definitely look through this article before playing the game on Impossible Mode. The schematics will be a great help. Remember, after finding the schematics, you will still have to pay credits to get your upgrades at the shop.
If it’s your first playthrough, make sure you revisit the article at the beginning of each chapter so you don’t accidentally miss any of the schematics; especially since one of them is missable. However, if it’s your second or third playthrough, I hope this helped you wherever you were experiencing difficulty. Happy Gaming!
