While the currency used to upgrade weapons and your rig in Dead Space are called “nodes,” there’s another in-game currency that players will obtain, and they are called “credits.” Credits are the game’s in-game currency (no microtransactions here, so don’t worry), which are used to buy schematics, ammo, health, (even) nodes and more! If you’re looking for an easy way to earn credits and nodes in the game, go check out our quick and handy Dead Space remake credits and nodes guide that will not only help you get as much cash in your playthrough, but also help you level up your favorite gear as well.

Dead Space Remake – Best Way to Earn Credit and Nodes:
Sell Ammo for Weapons You’re Not Using
While Dead Space has different weapon types for different situations and enemies, you really don’t need to use all the weapons that the game gives you. You can finish the game using the first weapon given to you, the Plasma Cutter, and there’s even a trophy/achievement tied to it.
If you tested the weapons out and you find a few not to your liking, go sell its ammo. Note that you need to have the weapon in your inventory in order to pick up ammo for it. Once you have it taking up one inventory slot, you should pick up ammo along the way via crates, lockers and the like, and you can sell these at the in-game shop for easy cash. Each ammo found will net you 1,250 credits and more, and this quickly adds up!
As for nodes, the store sells one for 10,000 credits, and with this ammo selling method, you’ll see the credits pile up fast, which you can use to buy med packs, ammo of your preferred weapons or even nodes.
This is the best method to farm for credits in Dead Space, but here are a few other pointers to help you get as much credits in your playthrough.
Use Kinesis in Corners, Unreachable Crevices and More
Isaac Clarke’s kinesis ability is most useful for reaching areas out of reach, or for carrying batteries and other stuff into their designated spot, but did you know that it can also reach a lot of hidden credits tucked away in various corners and crevices?
If you see an area that can’t possibly be reached, or a corner with an opening, use your kinesis and you’ll be surprised at just how many times you’ll see a credit be snatched up!
This is something that veteran Dead Space players will surely remember: stomp on enemies after killing them. Each enemy should also have a random item drop, but more often than not, it’s credits. Either way, you’re getting free stuff, so it never hurts to just stomp over those corpses.
Explore All Areas
This last tip isn’t necessarily an efficient way of making credits, but it’s worth considering if you’re running low on funds. Dead Space’s story doesn’t take you through every nook and cranny of the USG Ishimura, and that means there will be some spots left unchecked if you just stick to the main path. These areas will be full of credits and other goodies that you can grab if you take the time to explore them, but do note that you may end up with fewer ammo after your ventures as you may come across more Necromorphs.
The Dead Space remake can be pretty challenging at times, but with these tips in hand, you should have enough credits to power through the story. For more Dead Space remake content, click here.
