Secret message key

In Chapter 1, just after you repair the claw for the tram hit your objective finder. Follow the blue line into the hall way where you need to go. Stop as soon as you enter the hallway and look up at the catwalk above your head. Ignore the alien for now. Walk until you find the first corridor on the right. Walk into it there to see writing in an alien language all over. Look down there to see a message that says in English that reads "Don't listen to their lies, read what they're really saying." Keep reading to find a key that shows the alien language, and below that the corresponding are English letters from A to Z and 1 through 0. Although not everything will be legible, you should be able to decipher enough to understand what is written.

Defeating the final Boss

Do not be intimidated by its size. Though massive, it is very easy to kill. The following was done under the Medium difficulty setting. Upon starting the fight, notice you are "caged in" by the Boss' tentacles. Notice the yellow "blooms" around the Boss' mouth. Shooting each one will get you closer to killing it. However, upon shooting a few of them, the boss Grabs you, holding you in the air. During this time, it appears that you are helpless. Aim whatever weapon you are using at the time and shoot the yellow blooms. After a few shots you will be dropped. The Boss will then begin slamming its tentacles at you more frequently. They are very easy to avoid. Strafe left to right constantly. They will never hit you. The Boss will roar, shoot a few exploding cells at you, or will drop enemy pods upon you. This is part is also easy, considering it is usually only two small Necromorphs. After you destroy the blooms, you will notice a "caged" area underneath the beast. Under this rib cage lies its many hearts. Again, use same strategy with the whole tentacle scenario. After a few times, the Boss will have his fit and open up again. Unload and the Boss will come tumbling down.

Maxed Out Achievement

It helps to have a steady flow of credits by selling un nessesary items like small air cans, and small med kits. This is easier on a lower difficulty like medium or easy. You will have to play through the game more than once to earn enough credits to buy power nodes so, play through a few times to build up cash to buy nodes. It took me half way through my 3rd time playing to get this achievement. NOTE. You DO NOT have to put a node in all the blank slots to earn this achievement.

Super Cutter

The cutter that you find in the beggening of the game is probably the best weapon in the game, if the cutter is fully upgraded it can take down most anything in one well placed shot. The cutter can take the arms off a brute in a few shots to make a difficult fight easy. When you are grabbed by one of the giant arms it only takes 2 or 3 shots to kill it, so always have it with you. Its better than it seems trust me.

The Invincable Necromorph

As you know the invincable necromorph is a big pain. Im going to tell you the best way to slow it down when running away. Its simple and easy first cut off both of its legs and at least one or both arms this already slows it down greatly but now use stasis on it then run, this slows it down to a crawl for a shot time so make it count.

Easter Eggs

Isaac listens to music

This can occur in any dead space games. I was wondering off and i found a radio on the floor. I pressed (A) on it like 16 times and it turned on, Then before i know it, isaacs rocking his head. I get out my plasma cutter and stood there, then he starts doing a little dance. If you stand there for a long time, he starts to really dance. he spins his arms and his head around while he stomps (chapter 6)

Keep Military suit for Impossible difficulty

First, you must beat the game on New Game Plus mode, with the Military Suit bought and equipped, and save the game right before the last boss. After the game ends and the credits roll, skip them, and do not save the game when it asks you to. Instead, immediately start a completely new game on Impossible difficulty, and you will start the game wearing the Military Suit.

Limb Glitch

I was trying to defeat a necromorph infector when i died but i guess i hit the heal button at a certain time. I heard the healing noise as soon as i died and isaac stood back up with no head, no arms and half one leg. I am like whaaat? I even found this doing a gravity leap. I had like barely any health left and i leaped over to the other side of a room and i got my entire upper body cut off during the jump and i was still alive.
