Weapon Parts
The V101-Core Extractor was a heavy duty tool designed for extracting core samples and described as being able to penetrate 65% of all known elements. The primary fire mode fired four plasma beams in a diamond configuration composed of four separate beams at 90 degree angles to each other. The alternate firing mode compressed all four beams together into a continuous stream.

Combat TipsEdit

  • The Core Extractor was an incredibly devastating weapon and only limited by its low ammo capacity and rate of fire. It should be conserved for The Boss or larger enemies like Brutes.
  • The primary fire shot a diamond shaped blast that expanded the further that it travelled. It was capable of passing through multiple enemies. A well lined up shot could easily kill multiple Necromorphs.
  • When using the alternate fire focused beam, the camera went into a first person view for the duration of the fire. This could be incredibly useful when aiming at the weak spots on a Brute's arms or the Boss' tumors/eyes.

    Concept art of the Core Extractor.

  • If damage was sustained while using the secondary fire, the shot would cancel, resulting in the waste of valuable ammo, similar to what happened if hit while using the Ripper's primary fire.
  • When using the secondary fire mode, it was recommended to use Stasis as this helped prevent taking damage and wasting precious ammo.



  • The Core Extractor was exclusive to Dead Space (mobile) and was first acquired during Chapter 9: Trading Up.
  • The ammo was the most expensive in Dead Space (mobile), considering that it was 1,000 credits for one Core where the only ammo exceeding this was the Plasma Cutter's plasma energy which was 1,200 credits for 6 plasma energy.
