Tungsten Locations

dead space 3_first contact suit

Tungsten is a raw material in Dead Space 3 that you require to craft weapons and open sealed doors. The material is also extremely rare so it will be difficult to find it early on in the game.

We have found some locations where you can find more Tungsten but this is still something that requires more reasearch.

Terra Nova

Outer Space

Under a Buck

Glitches and exploits

dead space 3_03

People have found out a lot of glitches already and also a few exploits that will allow you to get things for free or without any grinding.

Some of these glitches are hilarious to see, but considering the last two games had such things, it’s not surprising to find them here. Dead Space 3 uses stasis a lot so the potential of physics based fails are always possible.

Check out some of the glitches we have found below.

Unlimited Resources

Infinite Respawn Exploit

Enemy Acting Up Glitch

Huge credits

We will keep updating this guide as the game has just came out and there’s a lot of things to write about here.
