Dead Space Remake Collectibles Guide: Chapter 2 Intensive Care

Here's where to find all of the collectibles in the second chapter of the Dead Space Remake, Intensive Care.

There are quite a few collectibles to find in the Intensive Care, Chapter 2 of the Dead Space Remake. These include audio, video, and text logs, as well as 5 upgrade Nodes. You'll also gain access to the Kinesis Module and a new weapon, the Pulse Rifle. The latter two are unmissable. More importantly, perhaps, are the two weapon schematics and weapon upgrade that can be found.

You'll also automatically pick up the following logs throughout Chapter 2, all of which are unmissable: 

  • Video Log: Destroy the Barricade
  • Audio Log: Found Hydrazine Tank
  • Audio Log: Shook the Whole Ship
  • Audio Log: Almost Got Me
  • Audio Log: Found a Shock Pad
  • Audio Log: Find the Captain’s Rig
  • Audio Log: Transmitting Codes
  • Video Log: Go to Engineering

As with our Chapter 1: New Arrivals collectibles guide, this article does not cover the Marker Fragments found in the game's New Game Plus mode. Everything you find here counts toward various trophies and achievements throughout the game, so be sure to follow along if you're trophy or achievement hunting, or just want to know more about the game's lore.

You’ll get the Kinesis Module as soon as you enter the Medical Cargo Depot and complete Chapter 1, getting the Welcome Aboard trophy and achievement. When you enter the Medical Cargo Depot, turn left. You’ll see a dead body crumpled over a crate underneath a Use Kinesis sign. The Module is on the crate. 

Weapon: Pulse Rifle

From the Kinesis Module, move the crates with Kinesis and follow the critical path up the ramp. Go through the door at the top, and interact with the dying soldier ahead of you in the next room. They’ll drop the Pulse Rifle when they give up the ghost.

After picking up the Pulse Rifle in the Security Station, follow the objective through the door leading to the Imaging Diagnostics Wing. Go down the hall and into Imaging Diagnostics itself.

Use Kinesis to move the exam table in your way, and enter a room with a circuit breaker on the far wall. Go through the door to the left. You’ll enter a room with a bench and the Node box on the far wall in front of you.

Place and detonate the Hydrazine bomb, then enter the Ishimura Clinic. Turn left when you enter to find the weapon upgrade on a bench against a wall with It’s Time scrawled on it in white paint. There is a Node box nearby, but you need Level 1 clearance to open it.

Enter the Emergency Room, and go straight across to the far wall, past the monitor and keyboard with yellow/orange light, and toward the locked security door. Get this collectible from the examination table to your left after passing the yellow/orange monitor and keyboard. 

Audio Log (Nicole’s Study)

This is part of a side mission that requires you interact with Nicole’s hologram in the Emergency Room. From the last collectible, go toward the circuit breaker, then look left to see the hologram. Watch it, then interact with the circuit breaker, activating the left lever to divert power left, lifting a shield and revealing a hidden door. Use Kinesis to open it, then pick the log up off of the table inside. 

Audio Log (Rats in the Walls)

Remove the battery at the circuit breaker, and use it to power the door leading to the Emergency Hallway A. Follow it to the Intensive Care door, and interact with the panel to the right of the door with the message icon to get this collectible.

Turn right from the last log, and follow the hallway to the end. The audio log is on the ground just to the right of the Oxygen dispenser, and the Node box is on the wall to the right of the log. 

Text Log (Autopsy Report)

Take the elevator down to the morgue, and enter the morgue at the bottom. You’ll see examination tables with various bodies and body parts blocking the way in front of you. Head toward the Autopsy Room door ahead of you, but take the first right to go behind the bodies previously blocking your way. You’ll find the text log along the wall, by a fire extinguisher between two bloody steel sinks.

When you get the Captain’s Rig, you’ll upgrade your security clearance to Level 1, allowing you to get the Node in the Ishimura Clinic from earlier. 

Node 5

On your way to the primary objective after getting the Captain’s Rig, you’ll return to the area in which you used the bomb to blow up the barricade. Go through the Imaging Diagnostics Wing Door, then through the Coolant Pipeline door in the hallway. Follow the path to re-enter the Zero-G area, then go up the elevator and through the opening. You’ll see a door on the left labeled Patient Locker Room in the next hallway. Go inside, and turn right to see the Node box.

Those are all of the collectibles, including logs, nodes, schematics, and weapon upgrades, to be found in Chapter 2 of the Dead Space Remake, Intensive Care. Now it's on to Chapter 3. For more, head over to our guides hub for EA's survival horror remake
