Top 12 Scariest Dead Space Remake Monsters
While the scariest thing about Motive Studio’s latest Dead Space remake is that there’s still no confirmation of a Dead Space 2 sequel in the future (make it happen, EA!), the Necromorphs are at the heart of the sci-fi -Horror’s experience still has enough of a gross factor to give us a serious case of Heebie-Jeebies.
With that in mind, we thought now would be the perfect time to release our ranking of the 12 scariest monsters in Dead Space Remake. So, without further ado, grab your plasma cutters, praise Altman, and don your fanciest mining rig as we return to the haunted hallways of the USG Ishimura. Let’s go!
12.) The Leviathan
It’s basically just a big asshole, but with way more explosive yellow balls. And after writing that sentence, I suddenly feel the urge to put it squarely at number one on this list because that sounds like pure nightmare fuel. But frankly, that would be cheating.
As it is, the Leviathan deserves a spot on this list. To the right. At. The… bottom. *ba dum tsh*
Okay, jumpers aren’t too scary. Sure, they can bite your head off. But I’ve seen people who can do it too – figuratively, of course!
They love jumping around and trying to give you a warm and snuggly hug, so in a way they’re like adorable kangaroos… WHO WANT TO EAT YOUR FACE!
Yes I know. Slashers are a dime a dozen on your journey through USG Ishimura, but they deserve a spot on this list because a) they look so damn creepy and b) they love spitting molecular acid and rain at Isaac’s parade. How rude!
As for Necromorphs, these are probably the most common enemies you’ll encounter in Dead Space, but they still have a unique talent for making players go: “Urggghggh,” which I think is always a commendable trait.
It’s a bit unclear if the Tentacle is a separate entity or just an appendage to one of the larger bosses like the Leviathan. That being said, one thing is sure: being crushed to death by one is no laughing matter.
Luckily, there’s a big yellow pustule that’s convenient for you to shoot, which will thwart the Lovecraftian beast’s plans. Although you’d better take a sharp shot at it… because his lair is just around the – oh, too late, you’re tentacle fodder.
Infectors look a bit like giant bats that can’t fly, with the added horror of a mosquito-like proboscis sticking out of their maw, which is pretty creepy if you ask me. But the Yes, really Their ghostly quality is hinted at in their grip. Yes you love infecting dead stuff with nasty Necromorph DNA, hence their name.
If you ever enter a room full of corpses in Dead Space, be sure to check those corners for those pesky infectors because there’s likely one hiding in the shadows, waiting to reanimate those lifeless corpses into something truly horrific. Or really divine if you ask a Unitologist.
These mini bosses are your classic giant ball sponges. While your traditional weapons will feel like water off a duck’s back to this particular Necromorph, the flamethrower is a surefire way to get these enemies two meters underground.
You see, while the Brute’s armored carapace adds a layer of protection to the monster’s front, there’s a large gap in its back that proves to be its Achilles’ heel. And the flamethrower is the only weapon that can reach those vulnerable spots in his back while attacking this beast head-on. Or you could alternatively use your stasis, freeze the bugger and pin him to the back. It’s your decision!
6.) The crush
You’d think the big bad would be a bit higher on this list, but it’s actually kind of a pushover if you know what you’re doing. Dodge his tentacle attacks and aim for the – you guessed it! – big yellow gooballs, and the job is a good job.
Yes, it gets a few extra points for its sheer size, and there’s definitely something The Thing-ish about its physical design, but when it comes to sheer horror, there are plenty more harrowing sights to behold in the latest remake from EA Motive.
Case in point: these wall-mounted monstrosities are what appear to be large thoracic cavities that spawn multiple appendages that must be sliced apart in order to ultimately kill that creature. Of course, Wardens are immobile, so they love to spit out little pods that may look cute but aren’t anything serious.
While Wardens are truly nightmarish to look at, it’s their resistance to traditional weaponry that earns them a high spot on this list. FYI: The old Flamethrower is an effective armament for this one.
4.) Pregnant women
Speaking of monsters that can be effectively taken down with a flamethrower, the pregnant woman wants to introduce himself. These swollen Necromorphs are a treacherous opponent, because if you shoot them in the abdomen, a bunch of tiny, spider-like creatures will squirt out, ready to nibble the flesh off the bones.
As a result, you’ll need to strategically dismember his limbs if you want to avoid the pregnant woman’s piñata-like gift. Because it’s not a very thoughtful gift, if we’re being honest. Kill it with fire!
How do you even make something scary? scarier? Transform said thing into a twitching monster that can of course slow down time!
These are essentially a variant of the Slashers above, but with incredibly high speed and longer claws. They are the result of an infected soldier merging with their Stasis unit, so they sometimes unknowingly slow down time to give you an extra opportunity to eliminate them efficiently. Practical!
Okay, we’re now entering real nightmare fuel territory and the Dividers are leading the charge! Not only are they tall and scrawny, which is easily the scariest physique imaginable, but they break down into lots of smaller monsters when you shoot them. *tremble*
Also, they’re called dividers, and division is probably the scariest of all mathematical concepts. @me not!
And a big congratulations to the hunters, who are officially the scariest of all monsters in Dead Space’s extensive menagerie of terror. But why are they number one I hear you ask?
Well, Hunters can regenerate their limbs, so they’re pretty much unkillable with standard weapons. For that reason alone, you should avoid going toe-to-toe with this bugger as you’ll just be wasting your ammo. Instead just… RUN!
phew! That’s a lot of dead space monsters, right? But what are you saying? Do you agree or disagree with our selection? Let us know in the usual place below.
