Secret Trophy Guide

Brute Force

The Brute Force trophy is tied to the main game and is arguably the easiest trophy to unlock on the list above. Players encounter the larger, more dangerous Brute enemies in Chapter 4. The most effective method to kill one is to shoot the pus sacks on its body after slowing it down via stasis. Brutes aren’t the most formidable enemies to kill in the game, making this a simple trophy to unlock.


Exterminator is another of the main story trophies that can’t be missed and involve killing the Leviathan in Chapter 6. Players face the Leviathan in Zero-G combat and must avoid its tentacles and, later on, the pus balls it throws. Killing the Leviathan isn’t challenging, and players can use the Plasma Cutter or Rifle, depending on which they’ve upgraded on the pus sacks on its body.

Get Off My Ship!

Piggying back on the earlier boss fight against the Leviathan in Chapter 6, players must once again finish it off in Chapter 8. Defeating the Leviathan once and for all involves firing the three ADS Cannons on the Ishimura on the Leviathan’s pus sacks. Players must finish the Leviathan off with the Plasma Cutter or Rifle upon interacting with all three cannons.

The second boss fight against the Leviathan is comparatively more manageable than the first as the Leviathan’s pus mines are effortlessly avoidable. The only thing to keep in check is the Oxygen Levels. Players can refill their oxygen via two O2 tanks near the airlock they exit or two near the ADS Cannons.

Front Towards Enemy 

Front Towards Enemy is a missable trophy and involves surviving the shooting gallery on the USM Valor in Chapter 9. To face the Necromorphs, players must visit the shooting range near the infirmary and wait for them to attack after starting it up. Defeating the Necromorphs won’t be too challenging as, by this point, players should already be well-equipped and skilled.


To unlock Marked, players need to pick up at least one Marker Fragment scattered across the Ishimura. Marker Fragments can only be found on a second playthrough after completing the main story. Players only need to pick up one out of twelve fragments though picking up all of them is necessary to view the alternate ending.

Mindless Prey

Unlocking Mindless Prey involves defeating the Hive Mind boss in Chapter 12. The Hive Mind boss fight is a two-phase battle however is arguably the most straightforward boss fight in Dead Space Remake.

  1. Two-Phase Battle: The Hive Mind boss fight consists of two phases.

  2. First Phase:

    • The Hive Mind attacks with its tentacles. Dodge these attacks by moving left and right.
    • Look for weak spots around the Hive Mind’s mouth.
    • Use the Plasma Rifle or Cutter to shoot these weak spots.
    • After damaging the weak spots, you’ll progress to the next phase.
  3. Second Phase:

    • The Hive Mind’s attacks in the second phase are similar but faster, and it also spits acid on the ground.
    • Continue dodging tentacle attacks and avoid the acid on the ground.
    • Shoot the five weak spots once again after dodging the attacks.
  4. Final Shot:

    • After completing both phases, the Hive Mind’s tentacles will pick up Isaac.
    • Land one final shot on the Hive Mind to defeat it.
  5. Camera Angle Consideration:

    • Be aware that the camera angle can affect the accuracy of your shot.
    • Use the weapon you are most familiar with to ensure accuracy.


Reunion takes the longest to unlock out of all the Dead Space Remake secret trophies. Players must view the alternate ending of the remake, which takes multiple playthroughs to view. After completing the remake once, players must start a new game + run with all twelve marker fragments found.

Z Baller

Z Baller is an unorthodox and surprisingly mini-game-like trophy to unlock in Dead Space Remake.

  1. Locate the Zero-G Basketball court in Chapter 10.
  2. Use Kinesis to grab and shoot basketballs into rings.
  3. Score as many baskets as possible within the time limit.
  4. Play in Zero-G for better angles and mobility.
  5. Progress through levels, aiming for Level 6.
  6. Be patient and practice for success.

Full Clearance

Getting the Full Clearance trophy involves creating the Master Security Override.

  1. Begin the “You Are Not Authorized” Side Quest in Chapter 4.

  2. Track the quest in the Mission tab of the Menu and complete objectives as new areas become accessible.

  3. As you progress through the quest, you’ll eventually obtain the Master Security Override.

  4. The Master Security Override is a powerful tool that grants access to new containers and unlocks specific weapon upgrades hidden in those containers.

By completing the “You Are Not Authorized” Side Quest and obtaining the Master Security Override, you’ll earn the “Full Clearance” trophy and gain access to valuable containers and weapon upgrades.


Players may need to spend multiple playthroughs unlocking Dead Space Remake’s secret trophies. We believe Reunion and Marked to be the most time-consuming out of the Nine secret trophies as they require a New Game Plus playthrough.

While some of the Nine trophies prove challenging, they are still nothing compared to finishing the Remake in Impossible Mode. Pay extra detail on the Missable trophies and get the weapon upgrades needed to streamline your trophy-hunting experience!
