Shockring 001

A ShockRing as seen in Dead Space: Salvage

A ShockRing is type of device used in Faster-than-light travel in the Dead Space universe[1][2].


Large and circular in their design, ShockRings act as a booster for the ShockPoint Drive during travel, allowing spaceships and shuttles to travel between the void of shockspace. In order to activate a ShockRing, a ship or shuttle should have a Shock-Gate, transmission codes that activate ShockRings[2].

Once activated, the ShockRing creates an event horizon that allows a vessel to travel through shockspace towards its desired destination[1]. ShockRings are used by miners, such as the Magpies, Government and commercial vessels.


  • Despite their implied commonality, ShockRings are never used in the core Dead Space games.
  • During the events of Dead Space: Salvage the Magpies use a ShockRing to transport eggs (clumps of minerals) to their Nest (a large storage ship).
