You need to find Master Override rig locations as part of the 'You Are Not Authorized' side quest to get the special clearance needed to open some locked doors and containers in the Dead Space remake.

Security Clearance Levels are a different thing, as they are acquired as part of the main story.

To help you get as many resources and helpful schematics as possible, we've detailed where to find all Master Override rig locations in Dead Space below.

This guide only applies to the remake, as there is no Master Override in the original game.

How to get Master Override in Dead Space

To get Master Override in Dead Space, you need to find seven Ishimura crew members' Rigs then make a master code in the Captain's Nest on the Bridge.

You will be able to collect all Master Override Rigs when you reach the Crew Deck area in Chapter 9.

You can find Dallas's Rig in Chapter 7 and try to open a Master Override locked door to start the associated 'You Are Not Authorized' side quest, or you can interact with a console in the Captain's Nest.

While you can find Rigs before picking up the side quest, we recommend starting 'You Are Not Authorized' first, as this allows you to track each Rig's exact location with your locator.

Once you've built the Master Override Code in the Captain's Nest, you'll then gain access to every locked door in Dead Space so you can get more resources and schematics for your weapons.

Hangar Overseer Voelkner Rig location for Master Override in Dead Space

Voelkner's Rig for Master Override in Dead Space is located in the Flight Deck of the Hangar Bay - Cargo area of the ship, on Floor 1. It's in the Zero-G section outside of the ship, near the oxygen tank to the north.

If you're backtracking to get Voelkner's Rig, you can't follow the locator's directions, as the door to the Flight Deck will be locked. Instead, go out the door opposite the locked one and turn left. Go through that door and follow its path to the Rig instead.

You can unlock the Flight Deck door back by changing the circuit puzzle behind the giant fans back to the way they were. This leads you back to the hub room with the Store and save station.

Mining Supervisor Dallas Rig location for Master Override in Dead Space

Dallas's Rig for Master Override in Dead Space is located in the Mining area of the ship as part of the story in Chapter 7. This is also where you get Security Clearance Level 3.

Lieutenant Commander Holt Rig location for Master Override in Dead Space

This is one of the trickier Rigs to find in the 'You Are Not Authorized' side quest, as it requires multiple steps.

Holt's Rig for Master Override in Dead Space is located outside in the East Grow Chamber of the Hydroponics area of the ship, on Floor 3. However, to uncover it, you first need to destroy four sacs on the tentacles covering the room.

First tentacle sac location

The first sac you need to destroy to get rid of the tentacles over Holt's Rig is right above the Rig's location, as you enter the room on Floor 3.

Second tentacle sac location

The second sac you need to destroy to get rid of the tentacles over Holt's Rig is over the side of Floor 3, but you need to use the lift to go down to Floor 2 in order to shoot up at it. Watch out for the Brute who will attack as soon as you reach the second floor for the first time.

Third tentacle sac location

The third sac you need to destroy to get rid of the tentacles over Holt's Rig is only accessible after you activate Zero-G.

To do this, insert the blue battery into the red slot by the circuit breaker on Floor 2. Then get the Deck Systems Keycard from the room opposite and switch the gravity off from the circuit breaker.
