Keep moving forward, you'll see a little zombie, shoot it if you want but prepare for a Slasher up ahead.

A large hallway, guess what's going to swarm you? If you have any spare medkits, I'd keep a finger on Q if I were you.

You'll be attacked. A single shot to the arm will kill these things, so going into berserker mode and wasting 3 shots on one will most likely end up in your death.

Once the Pack is dead, Stross will spam you and ask for credit-card information. Ignore his pleas, he uses Western Union only.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 110

There'll be a Store and a Save Station. Feel free to buy ammo +medkits and/or a new gun. I personally prefer the Line Gun as it does serious damage to larger zombies.

Passing a large food court you'll happen upon an Elevator that you need to hack into.

Keep moving forward, and you'll see some fragile glass.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 113

And a zombie.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 114

And LOTS of zombies, shoot the glass to save yourself an unwinnable fight, but prepare to shoot the red triangle at the top or you'll join them in space.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 115
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 115

Bam, red triangle.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 116
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 116

It doesn't end there, more Pack will try to kill you, but not nearly as big as a crowd as where the last Store was.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 117
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 117

When you get out of there you'll happen upon this fellow who teaches you how to use Kinesis to kill a zombie, ignore him and destroy his corpse as I don't like his face.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 118

You'll find a Bench, Save Station, and a desk to press E on to proceed. I recommend you use all but one power node on the Bench and then press the desk to continue.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 119
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 119

Press the console and the compactor will start and you can finally enter Zero-Gravity.

The zombies won't let you though, and pukers/slashers + 1 exploder will try to stop you. Invite them to meet Plasma Cutter.

In Zero-G, press Alt (if you didn't get the hint) to float. Shift boosts speed. Try to nab the loot floating around.

Landing on the platform next to where the Locator tells you to go will show you this console to start up the...turbine engine? I have no idea what it is, but it spits out trash.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 123
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 123

Exit that room and you'll have to press Shift to progress in here.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 124
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 124

Land on the platform to the right of the turbine-engine thingamajig to be able to proceed.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 125
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 125

As you proceed, the lights will dim, but only this Slasher will come to challenge you, so don't be scared.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 126

If you saved a power node like I very, very, GENTLY, recommended you do, use it on this closet for 10,000+ credits and a possibly lifesaving medkit.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 127
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 127

Then, use kinesis on this Companion Cube and put it in its receptacle to progress.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 128

Past that door, a Power Node will be in its shelf for the taking.

Once you arrive in the Scien---Unitology center you'll be greeted with these Swarmers, you can shoot them individually or use stuff like the Pulse Rifle's grenade or Javelin Gun's electrocution ability with Space to dispatch them all.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 130
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 130

Proceed, and find a Slasher feigning death coupled with some Swarmers, I recommended the Javelin Gun for moments like these.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 131
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 131

ZAP!

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 132
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 132

If a swarmer gets to you, it'll start a button sequence (but won't interrupt gameplay) that'll drain your health if you ignore it. More than ten swarmers is a death sentence, five and above is horrific on higher difficulties.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 133

Once you reach the horse-nightlight room, Flashlight will say Hi again.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 134

Keep on moving, and a Star Wars gunship will try to give you a retina examination, proceed as it's a terrible opthalmologist.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 135
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 135

A slasher will pop out of this room once you proceed, just light it up if it knocks you down. An elevator will be here, so head there too.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 136
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 136

Save after the elevator, esssssssssssspecccciallyyyyyy if you're low on health. Seriously, this part is very tricky on higher difficulties.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 137
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 137

An open hallway, not a boss fight exactly but almost as tricky as one.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 138
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 138

Infectors, pukers, and exploders will pop out. Focus on the Infectors before they create more problems, then the pukers.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 139
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 139

Electroshock Therapy!

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 140

Once you KILL THEM ALL the door will unlock and you can go ahead.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 141
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 141

You'll happen upon this hallway where you can listen to some boring lore if you want or just proceed.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 142
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 142

The next room, that opthalmologist will be angry that you didn't pay the bill and quickly try to shoot you.

Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 143
Dead Space 2 Walkthrough - Dead Space-2 143

It's harmless though as they can't aim.
