Dead Space Remake: Chapter 2 - How To Destroy The Barricade

Stuck on the Shock Pad in Dead Space Remake? Can't find the Hydrazine Tank? This guide will get you past the barricade in Chapter 2.

The primary objective of this side quest is to collect all seven RIGs (Resource Integration Gear) from seven deceased crew members. RIGs are systems that people can use to assist and manage their body's strength in health, primarily utilized in dangerous environments. RIGs monitor the user's vitals and are wearable on a person's spine. Of course, you must first gain access and enter the Captain's Nest near the ship's bridge to initiate You Are Not Authorized. You will then need to use the computer in the room to start the quest and have the ability to locate each crew RIG.

RIG 5: Rousseau's RIG

From the Control Room, go into the Refueling Station's and Engine Room's doors. Traverse through the corridor, go to the left, enter the next door, and take another left. Onward, a problematic door will keep shutting itself with sparks flying out of it and blood splattered in between.
