Dead Space Wiki

Onward is the ninth chapter of Dead Space 3.


"Isaac discovers a dying Buckell. With what little breath he has left, Buckell explains that most of the crew survived the crash, and ventured on to a facility beyond the ridge. But Isaac will need to fix or change his gear to make the journey himself."
—Ingame Description

Isaac has now descended down into the lower levels of the abandoned waystation to try and find an arctic survival suit, as he won't last very long on the planet without one. However, Buckell's warning about strange noises coming from the basement are soon revealed to be a new variant of Necromorph: feeders, the husks of men who had eaten necrotic flesh, and prove to be a threat in large groups. Eventually after fighting off a vast number of these creatures and travelling deeper into the waystation's lower levels, Isaac finds a suit kiosk to equip an arctic survival suit and makes his way back up to ground level, where he continues to navigate the planet's hostile terrain in an attempt to find Ellie and the rest of the survivors.


In order of appearance:


  • This is the first Chapter Feeders are encountered in.
  • This is the only chapter where you need to shoot off only 2 tongues of Snow Beast. In the latter ones, you need to shoot off 3 or just kill the monster without damaging its yellow weak spots.
