A series of articles covering Dead Space 3. This covers "Now We Know", where Issac must survive against a rogue drill and a number of necromorphs to reach the crew and find the experiment to locate the Machine.

Dead Space 3 Walkthrough Part 34 – Now We Know (The Drill Platform to NX-03 Site)

To move forward Issac needs to clear the Drill's path. To do this there are 2 safety gates that he needs to remove. The gate on the left is lowered by hitting and holding down its control switch with Kinesis. The one on the right is the same. When they are both down then the drill will be on the loose. Things just took a major turn for the worst. The Drill is going wild and there are Necromorphs that are dropping onto the platform.

To deal with the Drill Issac needs to hit it with a blast of Stasis then shoot the yellow fuse on the underside of the top of the Drill. This is exposed shortly after the Drill has been activated. Issac will need to hit the Drill's fuse 3 separate times to disable it. A good thing to do to end this quickly is hit the Drill with stasis as it is activating. The yellow fuse will slowly be exposed. With the set up of things,  it is still more than possible If you run low on stasis there are 3 Stasis Recharge stations found on the outer ring of the Drill's platform.

The Necromorphs are largely Fodder. This means it is a lot better to quickly kill them by shooting at their legs. Still, more than anything keep moving and do not stop. If they start to mob Issac hit them all with a stasis blast and move away. The Drill will likely cut them to pieces in a matter of seconds after that. If things go on long enough, some Feeders will also appear in the area but not too many thankfully. Use Stasis against them as well and the Drill will likely take care of the rest (or at least make your life easier to kill them).

With the Drill dealt with head through the passage where it was and through the doorway behind it. On the other side take a quick moment to loot the nearby containers then take the cargo elevator up. At the top head forward and to the right. Here Issac will find a place to loose one of his Scavenger Bots. After that head all the way to the wall and look behind the pillar on the right. Issac will find a S.C.A.F. Artifact that he can add to his collection. After all that head to the left and through the door to the NX-03 site. Inside Issac will find the rest of the group and something massive, Nexus. Head across the room using the catwalk and through the door to the Furnace Room. To learn anything about where the Machine is they need to power up the heat-based probes the Scientist had set up for this task.
