Dead Space Wiki

Downloadable content for Dead Space 3 included new RIGs, weapons, upgrades for the Scavenger Bot and additional story content.

Equipment Packs[]

First Contact Pack[]

Witness the Truth Pack[]

  • Witness Suit and Evangelizer.
  • This pack was included with the Limited Edition, but can also be purchased separately.

Marauder Pack[]

Sharpshooter Pack[]

Tundra Recon Pack[]

Tau Volantis Survival Kit[]

The Tau Volantis Survival Kit was a downloadable content bundle pack containing the contents of the Marauder Pack, Sharpshooter Pack, Tundra Recon Pack and the Bot Accelerator.

EG-900 SMG and Tesla Enervator[]

  • EG-900 SMG and Tesla Enervator.
  • Originally available exclusively as pre-order bonuses, these are now available individually as DLC.

Scavenger Bot Upgrades[]

Bot Capacity Upgrade[]

The Bot Capacity Upgrade doubled the resource storage capacity of Scavenger Bots so more resources are delivered to the Bench.

  • Since the resource locations could only be harvested by one bot each, this was the most beneficial upgrade.

Bot Accelerator[]

The Bot Accelerator decreased the harvesting time for the Scavenger Bots by 50% so the resources are delivered to the Bench faster.

Bot Personality Pack[]

The Bot Personality Pack upgraded the Scavenger Bots with a personality module, allowing them to vocalize their thoughts when they are deployed. The personality resembled a butler with a British accent who was quite vocal about how unhappy that he was to be in your employ.

Resource Packs[]

The game allowed the players to purchase resources for either real life currency or using Ration Seals acquired from the Scavenger Bots while playing the game. These packs also included random MK V weapon components. Weapons made using a MK V 'Tip', for example, had a gold skin. The resources and weapon components from resource packs carried over into any future game playthroughs and are provided at the first Bench that you encountered in any new game.

Ultra Weapon and Resource Pack[]

  • One MK V Weapon Part.
  • 50% Chance of a second MK V Weapon Part.
  • 120 Tungsten, 400 Semiconductors, 1000 Scrap Metal, 200 Somatic Gel and 100 Transducers.

Epic Weapon and Resource Pack[]

  • Two MK V Weapon Parts.
  • 50% Chance of a third MK V Weapon Part.
  • 240 Tungsten, 800 Semiconductors, 2000 Scrap Metal, 400 Somatic Gel and 200 Transducers.

As you could see, it made more sense to buy two Ultra packs in place of one Epic since it gave you a greater expected number of MK V Weapon Parts in the long run.

The Resource Packs are automatically added to your available resources at the start of every new game (both New Game and New Game+), so once purchased, you can never start a game "from scratch" again.

Note: The players may experience a bug in the PC version of Dead Space 3, preventing the purchase of the Resource Packs.[1]


Awakened was the first and only story DLC pack for Dead Space 3. Dead Space 3: Awakened was released on March 12, 2013 on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, PC and Origin for 800 Microsoft points or $9.99.

Based after the events of Dead Space 3, Isaac and Carver woke up after falling through the sky with the Moon. When they learned that the threat was not entirely put to an end, they both attempted to find a ship and return to Earth.
