Dead Space 3 Walkthrough Part 58 – What Lies Below (Underground Descent – Rappel 4)

Head on through the door and down the corridor to the next door. Inside here Issac will find the start of the final rappelling sequence. Be sure that all your weapons are fully loaded. There are going to be some tough enemies to deal with so it pays to be ready.

Shortly after Issac starts he descent there is an Alien Necromorph that will start climbing up at him. Once again, hit it with Stasis and start blasting it. It will fall a good ways but survive to start spewing a large number of Alien Crawlers. Issac is best off jumping through this section to avoid the worst damage these creatures can do. It will abate after a point but you will want to get out your heavy weapon shortly as the Alien Necromorph will start coming at Issac again. There are a number of Alien Crawlers coming with it and these offer something useful. Since they explode when shot, hit them and the massive Necromorph with stasis and hit the orange sac. This will inflict damage onto the Alien and clear away some of the Alien Crawlers as well. You know the Necromorph is finished when it falls again and gets cut to pieces by the fan below.

Issac needs to approach that fan carefully. Aim for the center with a Stasis blast and hit it. From there it is best to just jump through. Unfortunately a quick time event will trigger shortly after. The rappelling cable is caught in the fan and it is pulling Issac up toward the blades. Mash the interact button as soon as it appears on the screen. This will prompt Issac to unbuckle from the safety line and he will fall the last distance down into the alien city that rests below the fan.

As Issac lays stunned he will hear Danik giving orders to a very panicked Soldier. The Soldier says that Issac killed all the other men and there is no way back up to the surface. Danik will refute that and say that the rest of their men can get through using the ventilation shafts that funnel air into this area. Issac will contact Carver and explain what is going on to him. The two plan to meet up when they can as each explores the city and works to stop Danik from reaching the Machine.
