Dead Space 3 Artifiacts


Picking up these Artifacts won’t just help you unlock the Professor Achievement, you’ll also be rewarded with some weapon upgrade circuits. The Dead Space 3 Artifacts are divided into four categories, each with their own unlock. There will be 6 EarthGov, 6 Unitologist, 18 S.C.A.F, and 10 Alien. Completing each set will unlock the corresponding Circuit Set. Below are the Artifact Locations:

    Actually, there is an artifact in Chapter 7. After releasing the engine pod outside the wreckage of the Greely, turn around and find the L shaped piece of wreckage just below you on your way back to the SK1P. Normally a couple of Lurkers might attack you from it. On one end of the piece near the engine is an airlock door with two air canisters next to it. Open the door and inside you will find a supply stash and an S.C.A.F artifact.
