Dead Space suit upgrade locations, including how to get the final Level 6 suit

Rejig your Rig.

Dead Space suit upgrades are essential to surviving longer while fighting Necromorphs aboard the USG Ishimura.

Equipping new Rigs not only raises Isaac's health and armor - allowing him to withstand attacks for longer - it also adds more inventory slots. This allows you to carry more weapons, health, stasis packs, and resources to sell for Credits at the Store.

To make Isaac as strong as he can be, we've detailed where to find every suit upgrade location in Dead Space, including the Level 6 Suit location.

Please note that this is a guide for the remake, so the locations and stats might differ if you're playing through the original.
