Dead Space remake best weapons

The best weapons in the Dead Space remake are:

  • Plasma Cutter
  • Pulse Rifle
  • Ripper
  • Contact Beam

The Plasma Cutter might be the first weapon you get in the game, but it is easily the most reliable and it stays that way throughout the full list of Dead Space chapters. It is able to cut through Necromorphs and the amount of ammo you get for it means it will often be the gun you fall back on. Similarly, the Pulse Rifle is just as reliable, able to fire stronger bullets and also sustain fire for longer.

Next up is the Ripper which is almost certainly the strongest gun in the game due to its close-range and long-rang capability. Finally, the Contact Beam is our last choice which is a powerful, damage-dealing gun that can offer up a big dose of damage when needed. This all creates a varied and diverse weapon set that you will want to use and have equipped.

With these weapons by your side, you will hopefully survive the threats you face on the Ishimura.
