Weapon Parts

The Bone Cutter was introduced in Dead Space: Aftermath. It functioned similarly to the Plasma Saw in Dead Space: Downfall, but was smaller in comparison. It was used in medical purposes such as cutting bone or precisely cutting limbs for inspection. It was used by Kuttner to rescue Cho from a Slasher.

It had enough power to cut off a Slasher's limbs and stab through a Brute's face.

The power source of this weapon was unknown. However, it was theorized that it used a similar power source as the Plasma Saw.


  • When Borges was asked what he was doing when Kuttner, Cho, Stross and the Captain arrived, he stated that he was making Flamethrowers and Incendiary Grenades. He also showed several Plasma Cutters that he found which had the same appearance as Bone Cutters.
  • The Plasma Saw from Dead Space: Downfall required force to cut through a Necromorph's limb or body. However, the Bone Cutter was demonstrated to immediately cut through a Slasher and through a Brute, showing that it held more power than a rock-cutting Plasma Saw. This may due to the nature of each device as the Plasma Saw was a tool designed specifically to cut through rock where the bone cutter was designed to cut through human tissue.
  • When wielded offensively, the device bore an uncanny resemblance to a brass knuckle.
