  • Hidden message

    Take the first letter of each chapter and arrange them in order to spell out the sentence "Nicole is dead."

  • 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 hallway 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 in there to see writing in an alien language all over. Look down to see a message 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 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.

  • Finding the Peng Treasure

    You must be on the flight deck on Chapter 11. When in the ship port after your ship has left, look between the walkways. You should see a statue shaped like an Oscar. Pick it up with kinesis, and you will get the Peng Treasure. It can also be sold for 30,000 credits. -From: PureNasher

  • Easy ammunition

    When you are out of ammo, but have a bench and several Power Nodes, you can refill the ammo in a weapon to its new maximum by upgrading to a Capacity Node in that weapon.

  • Easy credits

    Sell your Plasma Cutter at the store. It is worth a lot of credits, and a new one is completely free.

    Purchase the Contact Gun as soon as possible. Ammunition for it will start appearing around the ship. Sell all of the unneeded ammo for it for 1,000 credits per unit.

    In Chapter 2, when you enter the Zero G Therapy area, there is a hole on the right side of the room along with debris blocking the hallway to other side where you can see the planet. Once you go through the room on the left and get to the other side, back up to the debris. You can see something flashing outside in the direction of the planet. It is 10,000 credits.

  • Defeating the Hunter

    The Hunter is a regenerating Necromorph that cannot be killed. The first time you encounter him it is difficult, and you just have to run. It is best to shoot off his legs because he does not regenerate them immediately. He is much slower without legs. Then, freeze him, and he will be taken away. When you face him again in a later chapter, use the same strategy, then fry him with the rocket engines, and collect the Power Node he drops.

  • Defeating the Leviathan

    First, take out the tentacles. When the center opens, aim for the orange ball. Take the explosive canisters or the Lathan pod, and launch them in the center.

  • Defeating the final Boss

    Do not be intimidated by its size. Though massive, it is easy to kill. The following was done on the Medium difficulty. When the battle begins, 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, after shooting a few of them, the Boss will grab you and hold you in the air. During this time, it may appear 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 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. Use the same strategy used for the tentacles. After a few times, the Boss will open up again. Unload on the Boss to kill it.
