Dead Space recently got its much-awaited remake and was released on January 27th. Dead Space Remake is available on PC, Playstation and Xbox. It is also available on Steam Deck

Dead Space Remake is a horror game, just like the original game, where Isaac was sent to investigate USG Ishimura when he received a distress signal. The game will see players fight and defeat aliens called Necromorphs and investigate the ship. In order to survive in the game players will need to manage resources as they are finite and search for the Power Nodes to upgrade the items or material. 

In this guide, you will learn about what items are best to upgrade first with the Power Nodes.

Which is the Best First Upgrade in Dead Space Remake?

Early in a playthrough, players will start their journey with a plasma cutter and their suit. Plasma Cutter is the first gun players will get. After killing enemies and completing 1 or 2 chapters, players will start feeling that they will need more damage and storage space and that’s where Power Nodes come in. They are used to upgrade the suit and guns. All you need to do is find the nearest workstation and start upgrading the items. 

Now, what is the best possible upgrade you can make at the start? Here are the best options for early-stage players:

  1. Suit 

Spending the power nodes on the space suit is one of the safest bets as it will provide extra storage space and extra oxygen capacity to the players. Upgrading the suit will also provide buffs to Kinesis and the Stasis abilities of Isaac and will help in battles. 

  1. Plasma Cutter

The first weapon players will get in-game is a Plasma cutter and it is arguably one of the best weapons in the game. As the name suggests, it is the best weapon for cutting the limbs of enemies and ultimately slowing them down.

Note: The amount of Power Nodes are limited so you can’t max upgrade every weapon in the game in one playthrough so investing in 2 or 3 weapons and the suit is the best way to play the game. 

That’s all you need to know about how to best use the power nodes in the game at the start. If you find this guide helpful, you can check our website for more such guides and news.
