----------------------------------------
          Introduction [INTR]
----------------------------------------

In the world of Dead Space 2 you re-assume the role of the universe's most
combat-adept engineer, Isaac Clarke. This time, instead of being confined to
a half-destroyed Planetcracker, Isaac must fight his way through an entire
space station, called The Sprawl/Titan Station, full of necromorphs. To help
make this challenge a little easier Visceral has not only given Isaac new 
weapons to play with, but also given him several different types of Suits which 
all allow him to enhance various weapons or equipments.

This guide will detail each Suit and weapon, explaining the bonuses, primary and
secondary uses, as well as strategies and usefulness.

Here's a quick overview of how each item will be explained:

!IMPORTANT!

----------------------------------------
          Standard Suits [SRIG]
----------------------------------------



1.1 [ESUI]

Engineering Suit - No bonuses


Inventory Space: 10 Slots

Armor: 5%

Appearance: Looks like Isaac's Suit from the original Dead Space

Suit Cost: 1000 Credits

Usefulness: Well, it's better than your straight jacket, but worse than
            everything else. Swap as soon as you can.

Location: It's on a couch, right next to the first store.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


1.2 [SSUI]

Security Suit - The Pulse Rifle will do 5% more damage


Inventory Space: 15 Slots

Armor: 10%

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Suit Cost: 20,000 Credits

Usefulness: A good upgrade from the Engineering Suit, the Security Suit gives
            you more inventory spaces and more armor. In addition, 
            if you're fond of the Pulse Rifle, this will give you a 
            nice damage boost!

Location: Chapter 4 in the Church of Unitology. Right after you make it through 
          a malfunctioning door, you have to crawl through a vent. Before going 
          through the vent, turn around and it will be on a shelf.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


1.3 [VSUI]

Vintage Suit - Items at the store cost 10% fewer credits


Inventory Space: 20

Armor: 15

Appearance: It looks a bit like a diver's suit. Isaac has bulkier leg armor,
            an air tank on his back, and his helmet is larger than usual. 
            A nice retro look.

Suit Cost: 40,000 Credits

Usefulness: The Vintage Suit is great for getting the extra inventory space 
            and armor when it first appears in the shop. However, since it 
            offers no combat benefits, you should only wear it when you plan 
            to do any shopping, and then immediately switch back to a more 
            combat-oriented suit.

Location: The Vintage Suit schematic appears in chapter 8, behind a node door


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


1.4 [ASUI]

Advanced Suit - Stasis recharge time is decreased by 50%


Inventory Space: 25 Slots

Armor: 20%

Appearance: This is the armor that appears in all the promos, all the videos,
            and is the titular armor Visceral has been showing off since they
            announced Dead Space 2. It has a sleek, futuristic look.

Suit Cost: -Coming Soon-

Usefulness: This is one of the best suits in the game, and certainly the best
            standard suit. As you move into the later chapters, stasis
            becomes more and more necessary, and the 50% reduction on the
            charge time saves a lot of time, stasis packs, and money.

Location: Found in chapter 11, behind a node door.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------



----------------------------------------
             Elite Suits [ERIG]
----------------------------------------

Elite Suits are upgrades of the Standard Suits you got on your first 
run-through. Available only on New Game+, these suits will give Isaac a larger 
lead on his numerous opponents.



2.1 [EESU] (Credit goes to darkfromallside for the cost)

Elite Engineering Suit - 15% More health recovered when using a medpack


Inventory Space: 25 Slots

Armor: 25%

Appearance: It looks exactly the same as Isaac's engineering suit, except it 
            has bright yellow armor pieces.

Suit Cost: 14,000 Credits

Usefulness: This suit is great for general use on higher difficulties, because 
            you burn through fewer medpacks. Especially early in the game,
            when stasis isn't a necessity, this suit can help you save both
            medpacks and money.

Location: On a couch in the room with the first store in chapter 1


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


2.2 [RSSU]

Riot Security Suit - 10% extra damage to the Contact Beam


Inventory Space: 25 Slots

Armor: 25%

Appearance: Jet black armor pieces, and a RIOT symbol on an arm guard. Olive 
            green skin suit.

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: If you use the Contact Beam AT ALL, this is the suit for you. 
            Providing a whopping 10% damage increase to the weapon that sports 
            the highest damage in the game means you'll be bringing the pain. 
            As an added benefit, the damage bonus applies to the primary AND 
            secondary fire.

Location: First store (possibly any store?)

How to Obtain: Find it at the first store


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


2.3 [EVSU]

Elite Vintage Suit - Items at the store cost 15% fewer credits


Inventory Space: 25 Slots

Armor: 25%

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Suit Cost: 50,000 Credits

Usefulness: By the time you get this, the only reason you'll need it is for
            increasing the bang you'll get for your buck. Similar to the
            regular Vintage Suit, put it on for buying, take it off when you 
            leave the store.

Location: Chapter 6, when you fight the first Brute in the transit hub.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


2.4 [ELSS]

Elite Security Suit - Javelin Gun does 15% extra damage


Inventory Space: 25 Slots

Armor: 25%

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Suit Cost: -Coming Soon-

Usefulness: While I was never fond of the Javelin gun myself, if you find 
            yourself impaling a lot of necromorphs, I'd give this suit a go. 

Location: Chapter 9, right after the tram ride.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


2.5 [EASU]

Elite Advanced Suit - 10% bonus damage to all weapons, 
                      15% increase to stasis duration


Inventory Space: 25 Slots

Armor: 25%

Appearance: Black armor with purple skin suit highlights. Very sexy.

Suit Cost: 50,000 Credits

Usefulness: Great for just about any situation. Lets slow down things for 
            longer, deal things more damage, and look good while doing it.

Location: Chapter 11, right after the large elevator, over a railing


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


2.5 [ASSU] (Credit for this suit's information goes to scarletdeath)

Arctic Security Suit - 10% bonus damage to Flamethrower


Inventory Space: 25 Slots

Armor: 25%

Appearance: White and gray camo armor pieces with a white skinsuit. You're
            ready to take on Palin's Alaska with this thing. Go find Russia.

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: If you just gotta burn everything you see, better equip this suit

Location: Any store after beating Zealot Mode


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


2.5 [SOSU] (Credit for this suit's information goes to scarletdeath)

Soldier Suit - 10% bonus damage to Seeker Rifle


Inventory Space: 25 Slots

Armor: 25%

Appearance: Forest camo armor pieces with dark olive skin suit. GO ARMY.

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: For the few and the proud who swear by the Seeker Rifle, this
            will give you a greater edge. For everyone else, just use 
            something else

Location: Any store after beating Hardcore Mode (needs final confirmation)


------------------------------------------------------------------------------



----------------------------------------
    Downloadable Content Suits [DRIG]
----------------------------------------

Similar to the original Dead Space, Visceral offers a few downloadable
content packs that provide the player with some different armors and weapons. 
Each armor is just a little bit different, though, which lets the player 
pick something that complements the weapon the love.



3.1 [FESU]

Forged Engineering Suit - 15% Extra health recovered when using a medpack


Inventory Space: 15 Slots

Armor: 15%

Appearance: It looks like Isaac's standard Engineering Suit, except it has 
            white armor pieces, an olive green skin suit, and a CEC armband.

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: Just as useful as the Elite Engineering Suit, and I think it looks 
            better. Note the lower armor rating and inventory space, though.

Location: Any store after you purchase, download, and install the Super Nova
          DLC pack

Downloadable Content Pack: Super Nova Pack


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


3.2 [HVSU]

Heavy-Duty Vintage Suit - 5% extra damage for the Line Gun, Detonator,  
                          Contact Beam


Inventory Space: 15 Slots

Armor: 15%

Appearance: Almost identical to the Vintage Suit, except it's not brown. It 
            has whiter armor pieces, and a green-ish skin suit.

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: If you use at least 2 of the weapons this suit gives bonuses to,
            then it's well worth equipping.

Location: Any store after you purchase, download, and install the Super Nova
          DLC pack

Downloadable Content Pack: Super Nova Pack


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


3.3 [AASU]

Agility Advanced Suit - 10% increase to the duration of stasis


Inventory Space: 15 Slots

Armor: 15%

Appearance: It looks identical to the Advanced Suit, except it has a red and 
           white color scheme instead of a blue, dark blue, and yellow color 
           scheme.

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: If you find yourself wishing stasis lasted longer, use this suit.
            Otherwise use any other suit.

Location: Any store after you purchase, download, and install the Super Nova
          DLC pack

Downloadable Content Pack: Super Nova Pack


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


3.4 [ESSU]

EarthGov Security Suit - 5% extra for the Detonator, Seeker Rifle, Pulse Rifle

Inventory Space: 15 Slots

Armor: 15%

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: If you use at least 2 of the weapons this suit gives bonuses to,
            then it's well worth equipping.

Location: Any store after you purchase, download, and install the Martial Law
          DLC pack

Downloadable Content Pack: Martial Law Pack


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


3.5 [BVSU]

Bloody Vintage Suit - 5% extra damage for the Flamethrower, Javelin Gun, 
                      Force Gun


Inventory Space: 15 Slots

Armor: 15%

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: If you use at least 2 of the weapons this suit gives bonuses to,
            then it's well worth equipping.

Location: Any store after you purchase, download, and install the Martial Law
          DLC pack

Downloadable Content Pack: Martial Law Pack


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


3.6 [HSUI]

Hazard Suit - 5% increase to the duration of stasis


Inventory Space: 15 Slots

Armor: 15%

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: If you find yourself wishing stasis lasted longer, use this suit.
            Otherwise use any other suit.

Location: Any store after you purchase, download, and install the 
          Occupational Hazard DLC Pack

Downloadable Content Pack: Occupational Hazard Pack


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


3.7 [TSUI]

Triage Suit - 10% extra health recovered when using a medpack


Inventory Space: 15 Slots

Armor: 15%

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: Similar to the Elite Engineering Suit, the Triage Suit helps you
            save medpacks and money. A good general bonus.

Location: Any store after you purchase, download, and install the 
          Occupational Hazard DLC Pack

Downloadable Content Pack: Occupational Hazard Pack


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


3.8 [SHSU]

Shockpoint Suit - 5% reduction in stasis recharge time


Inventory Space: 15 Slots

Armor: 15%

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: Possibly one of the worst suits in the game. A very minimal
            reduction in stasis recharge time helps you hardly at all. You'd 
            be much better off equipping just about suit but the standard 
            Engineering Suit

Location: Any store after you purchase, download, and install the 
          Occupational Hazard DLC Pack

Downloadable Content Pack: Occupational Hazard Pack


------------------------------------------------------------------------------



----------------------------------------
       Promotional Suits [PRIG]
----------------------------------------

If you pre-ordered the game, beat certain people in online multiplayer, or 
do various other tasks, you can get one of the few promotional suits.


4.1 [ZSUI]

Zealot Suit - 5% bonus damage for the Force Gun


Inventory Space: 15 Slots

Armor: 15%

Appearance: Looks similar to the Advanced Suit and the Security Suit, but with 
            a red and dark gray color scheme and white Unitology markings.

Suit Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: As a starting suit, the Zealot Suit is one of the best. Since it
            was packaged with a Force Gun (which is also free) the damage 
            boost can really give the player a head start during the early 
            chapters. It also has increased inventory space and armor than 
            the Engineering Suit

Location: Any store

How to Obtain: You must have pre-ordered the game, or obtained a promotional 
               code from someone who pre-ordered the game.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


4.2 [HASU]

Hack Suit - Hacking requires one less stage to complete


Inventory Space: 15 Slots

Armor: 15%

Appearance: A more casual suit, Isaac has exposed skin, only a few pieces of 
            armor, and looks more like a civilian.

Suit Cost: 20,000 Credits

Usefulness: While the benefit of this suit can be nice, I never found myself 
            frustrated by the hacking mini-game to want this suit. Seeing as 
            it costs a fair amount of money and no combat bonuses, I would 
            advise against this suit unless you just HATE the hacking games.

            *MINOR SPOILERS*

            One good reason to get the hacking suit is to use its specialty to 
            avoid a significant fight in the Government Sector. At the 
            beginning of the area, you must hack a terminal to open a large
            door. If you have this suit, you can do it fast enough to avoid 
            the second (and larger) round of necromorphs.

            I did not devise this strategy, I saw it posted somewhere on the 
            boards. First person to provide me with more accurate details gets 
            credit for this.

            *END MINOR SPOILERS*

Location: In the Conduit Room before the train sequence

How to Obtain: You must have completed Dead Space: Ignition in order to unlock 
               the room that contains this suit.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


4.3 [PGSU]

Prima Games Security Suit - MULTIPLAYER ONLY


Inventory Space: N/A

Armor: N/A

Appearance: It looks similar to the Military Suit from the original Dead 
            Space. It is basically a white Security Suit.

Suit Cost: N/A

Usefulness: Look different, just like everyone else!

Location: N/A

How to Obtain: Kill someone in Dead Space 2 Online Multiplayer who has the 
               Prima Games Security Suit already. Prima Guide Employees will 
               be the initial batch to have the suit.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------



----------------------------------------
       Standard Weapons [SWEP]
----------------------------------------

Throughout Dead Space 2 Isaac is going to encounter an honest to God
horde of undead, mutated abominations. They will come at you in various 
sized groups, that sometimes consist of several different types of enemies. 
To help Isaac dispatch these menaces, he has a wide variety of weapons at 
his disposal, allowing him to strategically pick weapons and find a suitable 
combination.


5.1 [PCWP]

Plasma Cutter - No Bonuses


Primary Fire: the Plasma Cutter fires a fast traveling beam of energy. The 
              beam has a small width, so it hits an area, but must still be 
              aimed precisely for optimal results.

Secondary Fire: Rotates the firing pattern 90 degrees (horizontal to vertical)

Ammo Stack: Plasma Energy has a maximum stack size of 25

Ammo Cost: 6 Plasma Energy costs 1,200 credits

Upgrade Stats: 
-Damage: 4 Expansions (2 points each)
-Capacity: 5 Expansions (2 points each)
-Reload: 2 Expansions (-.25 seconds each)
-Speed: 2 Expansions (-.2 seconds each)
-Alt-Fire: N/A
-Special: 1 Expansion (sets enemies on fire)

Total Nodes Needed: 19 Power Nodes

Appearance: About the size of a handgun, the Plasma Cutter has a business end 
            designed to rotate.

Cost: 0 Credits

Usefulness: The Plasma Cutter is one of the most basic and useful weapons in 
            the entire Dead Space franchise. It is powerful, quick, has a 
            good clip size, and even has a special that sets enemies on fire 
            for a brief period of time. It also allows for precision shots 
            on both arms and legs, making it a good all-around weapon.

Location: You get this as part of a story event.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


5.2 [LGWP]

Line Gun


Primary Fire: the Line Gun's primary fire is essentially a long-range shotgun; 
              the wide beam of energy it fires travels until it hits 
              something, and does significant damage to any enemy.

Secondary Fire: the Line Gun's secondary shoots out a mine that explodes 
                after a certain amount of time. You could say it becomes 
                a MINE Gun (okay, I won't ever do that again). The mine 
                does significant damage to any enemies in its radius.

Ammo Stack: Line Gun Racks have a maximum stack size of 6

Ammo Cost: 2 Line Gun Racks cost 2,000 credits

Upgrade Stats:
-Damage: 4 Expansions (3 points each)
-Capacity: 4 Expansions (1 points each)
-Reload: 2 Expansions (-.15 seconds each)
-Width: 2 Expansions (.5 increase to width)
-Alt-Fire: 6 Expansions (Increases damage of Alt-Fire)
-Duration: 1 Expansion (shortens the timer on the Alt-Fire)

Total Nodes Needed: 24 Power Nodes

Appearance: When not being aimed, the Line Gun looks like a high-tech box 
            with a handle. When Isaac aims it, the front of the weapon 
            expands to about 2 times the width of the holstered size.

Cost: 9,000 Credits

Usefulness: The Line Gun is extremely useful throughout the entire game. 
            It starts as a more powerful Plasma Cutter, and once upgraded 
            it becomes a juggernaut that can take down multiple enemies at 
            once. It has a slower rate of fire than the Plasma Cutter, but 
            still fires fast enough to make it an excellent crowd control 
            device. A few shots at any necromorph's legs will cripple them, 
            allowing you to focus on other enemies.

Location: -Coming Soon-


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


5.3 [PRWP]

Pulse Rifle


Primary Fire: the Pulse Rifle's primary fire is a full-auto barrage of bullets. 
              While it lacks the width of both the Plasma Cutter and the Line 
              Gun, the Pulse Rifle's primary fire does decent damage and 
              causes Necromorph's to flinch.

Secondary Fire: the Pulse Rifle's secondary fire expends 25 ammunition to fire 
                a high-powered grenade that travels in an arc.

Ammo Stack: Pulse Rounds have a maximum stack size of 100

Ammo Cost: 25 Pulse Rounds cost 1,250 credits

Upgrade Stats:
-Damage: 4 Expansions (1 point each)
-Capacity: 5 Expansions (25 points each)
-Reload: 2 Expansions (-.2 seconds each)
-Speed: N/A
-Alt-Fire: 4 Expansions (Increases Damage of Alt-Fire)
-Special: N/A

Total Nodes Needed: 22 Power Nodes

Appearance: When holstered, the weapon looks like a cylinder. When aimed, the 
            Pulse Rifle extends, and cocks.

Cost: 7,000 Credits

Usefulness: The Pulse Rifle has been greatly enhanced for Dead Space 2. In 
            the original game it was useful only against bosses, or once 
            fully upgraded. The new secondary fire grenade changes this. Not 
            only does the weapon retain decent damage output, but the grenade 
            allows for the player to instantly deal massive amounts of damage 
            to multiple enemies. The grenade will kill a lot of enemies, and 
            knock down anything that survives. The primary fire also causes 
            necromorphs to flinch, halting them in their tracks. Since this 
            weapon is full-auto, and has a huge clip, this means you can
            stun-lock your enemies. A very decent weapon, especially when
            upgraded.

Location: Chapter 3, back corner of the room after surviving the train


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


5.4 [FGWP]

Force Gun


Primary Fire: the primary fire for the Force Gun is a large, short-range
              area attack that will deal significant damage to anything at 
              super close range, as well as knocking down anything caught in 
              the blast.

Secondary Fire: the secondary fire of the Force Gun is a long-range shot 
                that deals significant damage. It has a brief charge up 
                time before it fires, so make sure you have some space.

Ammo Stack: Force Energy has a maximum stack size of 15

Ammo Cost: 3 Force Energy can be purchased for 900 credits

Upgrade Stats:
-Damage: 5 Expansions (3 points each)
-Capacity: 5 Expansions (2 points each)
-Reload: 2 Expansions (-.25 seconds each)
-Speed: 2 Expansions (-.2 seconds each)
-Alt-Fire: 4 Expansions (Increases Damage of Alt-Fire)
-Special: N/A

Total Nodes Needed: 24 Power Nodes

Appearance: Looks a bit like a propane tank with a handle.

Cost: 11,000 Credits

Usefulness: The Force Gun (more like Force FUN) is a very versatile weapon 
            that deals massive amounts of damage, can attack short and long 
            range very effectively, and has cheap ammo. Once upgraded, it can 
            one shot a lot of weaker necromorphs at even medium range, and is 
            one of the more effective weapons against the Leaper. It has a 
            decent rate of fire and reload time, as well, and it has a wide 
            area of effect. One of the best weapons in the game, in my opinion.

Location: Chapter 7, after completing the elevator fight, on the left after
          you exit.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


5.5 [CBWP]

Contact Beam


Primary Fire: after a moderate charge up time the Contact Beam fires a precise 
              high-powered laser that is capable of decimating even the most 
              powerful enemies.

Secondary Fire: after a short animation, the Contact Beam knocks down and 
                damages enemies in a radius.

Ammo Stack: Contact Energy has a maximum stack size of 6

Ammo Cost: 2 Contact Energy costs 4,000 credits

Upgrade Stats:
-Damage: N/A
-Capacity: 3 Expansions (1 point each)
-Reload: 5 Expansions (-.25 seconds each)
-Charge: 2 Expansions (-.2 seconds each)
-Alt-Fire: 4 Expansions (Increases Damage of Alt-Fire)
-Special: 1 Expansion (Enemies hit with alt-fire have stasis applied to them)

Total Nodes Needed: 23 Power Nodes

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Cost: 9,000 Credits

Usefulness: The Contact Beam is the most powerful weapon in the game, hands 
            down. It does require a charge up time, but if you can master 
            the timing, this weapon can one shot just about every enemy. The 
            few downsides include rare and expensive ammo, no spread fire on 
            the primary fire, and a charge up time.

Location: Chapter 7, in the node door after the mainframe.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


5.6 [RPWP]

Ripper


Primary Fire: the Ripper fires a rotating saw blade a short distance from the 
              gun, and keeps it hovering there. The blade will damage any
              enemy that comes in contact with it, and cause them to stagger.

Secondary Fire: fires a saw blade out at high-velocity. If a blade is 
                currently hovering via primary fire it will fire that blade 
                in the direction Isaac is aiming until it hits something.

Ammo Stack: Ripper Blades have a maximum stack size of 15

Ammo Cost: 4 Ripper Blades cost 1,350 credits

Upgrade Stats:
-Damage: 4 Expansions (2 points each)
-Capacity: 4 Expansions (2 points each)
-Reload: 2 Expansions (-.2 seconds each)
-Duration: 2 Expansions (2 points each)
-Alt-Fire: 4 Expansions (Increases damage of Alt-Fire)

Total Nodes Needed: 22 Power Nodes

Appearance: The Ripper has looks like a power-saw on a handle.

Cost: 8,000 Credits

Usefulness: The Ripper is a decent weapon that does good damage to all 
            enemies. It can easily kill weaker/smaller enemies, and causes 
            stronger ones to flinch, allowing you to keep hitting them. The 
            largest downside to the Ripper is that if an enemy gets between 
            you in the blade, there's nothing you can do against them. In 
            addition, if you get damaged while you have a blade hovering, it 
            will cause the blade to disappear (it won't even fire off).

Location: Chapter 5, in the chamber where you disable gravity. It's along the 
          side, on a box.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


5.7 [FTWP]

Flamethrower


Primary Fire: the Flamethrower emits a continuous stream of fire, and ignites 
              enemies.

Secondary Fire: fires off a canister of fuel that explodes for splash damage,
                and ignites enemies. Expends 25 fuel.

Ammo Stack: Flame Fuel has a maximum stack size of 150

Ammo Cost: 25 Flame Fuel costs 1,000 credits

Upgrade Stats:
-Damage: 2 Expansions (4 points each)
-Capacity: 5 Expansions (25 points each)
-Reload: 3 Expansions (-.15 seconds each)
-Duration: 2 Expansions (5 points each)
-Alt-Fire: 4 Expansions (Increases the damage of Alt-Fire)

Total Nodes Needed: 24 Power Nodes

Appearance: A red-propane tank on a handle.

Cost: 11,000 Credits

Usefulness: The Flamethrower has been greatly enhanced for Dead Space 2. It 
            can now fire in vacuums, which means it never loses functionality, 
            and its secondary fire is similar to the Pulse Rifle's, giving it 
            some nice burst damage. It's also been said that it stuns enemies 
            if upgraded enough.

Location: Chapter 6, in a class room after the stage fight


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


5.8 [SRWP]

Seeker Rifle


Primary Fire: the Seeker Rifle fires a super-precise, high-powered round where 
              Isaac is aiming.

Secondary Fire: The camera zooms in.

Ammo Stack: Seeker Rounds have a maximum stack size of 15

Ammo Cost: 5 Seeker Rounds cost 1,000 credits

Upgrade Stats:
-Damage: 4 Expansions (5 points each)
-Capacity: 3 Expansions (1 points each)
-Reload: 3 Expansions (-.15 seconds each)
-Alt-Fire: 4 Expansions (Increases damage while looking through scope)

Total Nodes Needed: 27 Power Nodes

Appearance: It looks like a futuristic sniper rifle.

Cost: 11,000 Credits

Usefulness: The Seeker Rifle is essentially a super-accurate, longer-range 
            Line Gun. The zoom functionality is mostly useless, due to the 
            fact enemies tend to get close fairly quickly. A decent weapon, 
            but it is more overshadowed by more useful and powerful weapons.

Location: Chapter 6, after the laundry room save point, it's past a door on 
          a balcony


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


5.9 [DTWP]

Detonator


Primary Fire: launches a proximity mine a short distance from Isaac. It will 
              explode when something comes near it, or if it comes into 
              contact with an enemy during its time in the air.

Secondary Fire: disarms all mines so they can be picked up.

Ammo Stack: Detonator Mines have a maximum stack size of 10

Ammo Cost: 3 Detonator Mines cost 1,200 credits

Upgrade Stats:
-Damage: 4 Expansions (2.5 points each)
-Capacity: 4 Expansions (1 points each)
-Reload: 3 Expansions (-.15 seconds each)
-Special: 1 Expansion (Increases splash damage radius)

Total Nodes Needed: 20 Power Nodes

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Cost: 8,000 Credits

Usefulness: The Detonator is a powerful weapon that allows players to deal 
            significant damage to groups of enemy, protect himself through 
            area denial, and conserve ammo by picking up un-detonated mines. 
            Since the mines will detonate on contact, it can be used as a 
            grenade launcher of sorts. A good support weapon.

Location: Chapter 5, after the elevator ambush, look for it next to the save 
          point.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------



5.10 [JGWP]

Javelin Gun


Primary Fire: fires a high-velocity, high damage spear. If it kills an enemy 
              it will cause them to fly with the spear until it hits a wall 
              or the ground.

Secondary Fire: electrifies the most recently fired spear, causing 
                electricity to arc out and damage anything in a small 
                radius around the sphere...including Isaac.
               

Ammo Stack: Javelin Spears have a maximum stack size of 10

Ammo Cost: 2 Javelin Spears cost 400 credits

Upgrade Stats:
-Damage: 4 Expansions (12.5 points each)
-Capacity: 5 Expansions (1 points each)
-Reload: 2 Expansions (-.25 seconds each)
-Speed: 2 Expansions (-.2 seconds each)
-Alt-Fire: 4 Expansions (Increases damage of Alt-Fire)
-Special: 1 Expansion (adds an explosive effect to Alt-Fire)

Total Nodes Needed: 24 Power Nodes

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Cost: 11,000 Credits

Usefulness: The Javelin Gun can be effective both against single enemies and 
            groups of enemies. However, it is a difficult weapon to wield 
            for a few reasons: first, if you miss with the primary fire you 
            are pretty vulnerable, because of the Javelin Gun's slow rate of 
            fire; second, the Javelin Gun has a very bizarre and node 
            consuming upgrade path; and third, by the end of the game it is 
            not as effective unless it has been upgraded. While great fun, 
            and capable of helping deal with groups, it gets overshadowed 
            by easier to use and more powerful weapons.

Location: -Coming Soon-


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


5.11 [RGWP]

Rivet Gun

Primary Fire: fires a quick bolt. Full-auto.

Secondary Fire: detonates any bolts that have been fired, causing them to 
                ricochet around the room. Can hurt Isaac.
               

Ammo Stack: Rivet Bolts have a maximum stack size of 30

Ammo Cost: 10 Rivet Bolts cost 750 credits

Upgrade Stats:
-Damage: 4 Expansions (2 points each)
-Capacity: 4 Expansions (2 points each)
-Reload: 4 Expansions (-.15 seconds each)
-Speed: 1 Expansions (-.5 seconds each)
-Alt-Fire: 4 Expansions (Increases damage of Alt-Fire)

Total Nodes Needed: 25 Power Nodes

Appearance: -Coming Soon-

Cost: -Coming Soon-

Usefulness: The Rivet Gun is a semi-auto pistol that fires charged bolts at a 
            decent rate of fire. If you plug a Necromorph with several bolts, 
            and then detonate the bolts, it will most likely kill the enemy 
            and possibly hurt another one. This gun is extremely weak unless 
            it is upgraded, for a few reasons: 1) it's initial damage is 
            rather low; 2) it's inital alt-fire power is rather weak; 3) in 
            order to do significant damage with the alt-fire you need a fair 
            amount of bolts on screen. Without capacity upgrades, it's hard 
            to use the alt-fire well unless you reload between firing and 
            activating the alt-fire; 4) it has no spread for the primary fire.
            If you upgrade the Rivet Gun, it can make an effective secondary 
            weapon, and it has cheap ammo. However, almost every other gun 
            is better than it, so only use it to have some fun with a new 
            gun.

Location: Any store, provided you have either:
          A) redeemed a GameStop pre-order code
          B) bought the Super Nova DLC pack

         Regular Items [ITEM]
----------------------------------------

While Isaac is pretty formidable with just a suit and a gun, he'd be 
hard-pressed to make it through the game without any other items. Here's 
what they all are.


8.1 [SMPA]

Small Medpack


Effect: Heals Isaac for a small amount (relative to maximum health)

Cost: 2,000 credits

Usefulness: These medpacks will be your bread and butter throughout any 
            difficulty runthrough. They heal about 1 bar of health, and are 
            fairly abundant on the lower difficulties.

Schematic Location: -Coming Soon-


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


8.2 [MMPA]

Medium Medpack


Effect: Heals Isaac for a moderate amount (relative to maximum health)

Cost: 5,000 credits

Usefulness: Once you get to about chapter 5 or 6, these medpacks will start 
            becoming more and more useful. They heal about 2 - 3 bars of 
            health, so you'll most likely use them after larger, tougher 
            fights.

Schematic Location: Chapter 5, after you ascend through the coffin transporter


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


8.3 [LMPA]

Large Medpack


Effect: Heals Isaac for a large amount (relative to maximum health)

Cost: 9,000 credits

Usefulness: These medpacks will be your last resort. They recover so much 
            health that you won't want to use one of these unless you just 
            have no other option. Usually will restore Isaac to full health, 
            or very close to full health. Fairly rare to find, and expensive.

Schematic Location: Chapter 8, same room you meet up with Ellie and Stross in


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


8.4 [STPA]

Stasis Pack


Effect: Fully restores Isaac's stasis

Cost: 2,500 credits

Usefulness: Late in the game, stasis packs will be one of your best friends. 
            Early in the game, they are easy money. Stasis packs are fairly 
            abundant, so you should never need to buy one.

Schematic Location: Chapter 2, on the train tracks behind Nicole


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


8.5 [PWND]

Power Node


Effect: Grants Isaac one Power Node

Cost: 10,000 credits

Usefulness: Depending on the difficulty you're playing on, you will either 
            pick up a lot of these, or none at all. On easier difficulties, 
            you'll be given plenty of ammo and health, so you can spend your 
            extra money on Power Nodes, so you can make your weapons more 
            powerful and increase your RIG and Stasis stats. On higher 
            difficulties you probably won't grab many of these from the store 
            because the 10,000 credits could go to much better use.

Schematic Location: Behind the node door in chapter 1


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


8.6 [BRSC]

Bronze Semi-Conductor


Effect: A rare "electrical component" that you sell for money

Sell Price: 1,000 credits

Usefulness: I don't find Bronze Semi-Conductors that often, but when you do 
            find them, the extra cash is nice. They're worth relatively 
            little, though, so don't be afraid to drop them if you need to 
            pick up a schematic or a more important item.

Location: Dropped from stronger enemies


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


8.6 [GDSC]

Gold Semi-Conductor


Effect: A moderately rare "electrical component" that you sell for money

Sell Price: 3,000 credits

Usefulness: Gold Semi-Conductors will drop from a lot of more minor strong 
            enemies, such as Guardians, and will provide a steady source 
            of income. They are frequent enough to rely on them for a quick 
            boost of cash if you find yourself running dry mid-way through 
            a long sequence.

Location: Dropped from stronger enemies


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


8.6 [RBSC]

Ruby Semi-Conductor


Effect: A very rare "electrical component" that you sell for money

Sell Price: 10,000 credits

Usefulness: Ruby Semi-Conductors are fairly rare, but not nearly as rare as 
            they were in the original Dead Space. On normal difficulty, I 
            managed to find several of these. While not as frequent as the 
            Gold Semi-Conductor, and thus not as reliable, you can count on 
            finding at least a few of these throughout the game.

Location: Dropped from stronger enemies, or found in Node Rooms or Conduit 
          Rooms


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


8.6 [DISC]

Diamond Semi-Conductor


Effect: An extremely rare "electrical component" that you sell for money

Sell Price: 25,000 credits

Usefulness: Throughout all of Dead Space 2, you will find maybe 2 Diamond 
            Semi-Conductors, and for good reason. These items will instantly 
            net you a staggering amount of money, allowing you to restock 
            ammo and health packs, and/or grab a few nodes.

Location: Rarely dropped from important strong enemies


------------------------------------------------------------------------------



----------------------------------------
           Ammunition [AMMO]
----------------------------------------

In order to use his weapons, Isaac needs ammo. While necromorphs do drop ammo 
here, there, and everywhere, Isaac is also going to want to be able to purchase 
ammo. To do that, he'll need the schematics! Drop amounts are based on normal 
difficulty. Harder difficulties will get less rounds in each drop, but not 
less drops.
