Dead Space 3 Chapter 9, named Onward, starts when Isaac finds one of his dying teammates, and just like previous chapters, it includes several hidden collectibles.
Because his suit was damaged at the beginning of Chapter 8, Isaac must find a new one if he wants to stay alive and be able to search for the remaining crew.
Chapter 9 features more Dead Space 3 collectibles than an average level, and the following guide reveals their exact locations, and it also includes hints and tips that can be used to get them faster.
Waystation Isaac discovers a dying Buckell. With what little breath he has left, Buckell explains that most of the crew survived the crash, and ventured on to a facility beyond the ridge. But Isaac will need to fix or change his gear to make the journey himself.
Hidden collectibles available: 30
Weapon Parts: 8
Weapon Part #1 (Canister Recovery Module)
As soon as you meet with your teammate, you need to turn on a generator to activate the elevator.
The generator can be seen in an adjacent room across the elevator. Inside the room with the generator is the first Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Weapon Part.
Weapon Part #2 (Compact Standard Frame)
After you activate the elevator, you use it to go to a lower level, and then you will enter a kitchen where an enemy runs away.
On the table thats on your right side (as you enter) is the second Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Weapon Part.
Log #1 (Audio Log)
You get through the next set of rooms until you fight some weaker enemies, and in the next room after that you can collect the first Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Log.
Circuit #1 (+2 Damage -1 Clip)
You pick up the first log, and you go inside the next room, where you get attacked by more sound sensitive enemies.
Behind the wall in the middle, between the beds, you can see the first Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Circuit lying on the floor.
Artifact #1 (S.C.A.F. Artifact 11)
Next, you head towards the pump room (just after you pick up the circuit mentioned above), and near the door where you hear an enemy, is a small storage room (left side as you enter).
Inside the room is the first Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Artifact.
Weapon Part #3 (Explosion Amplifier)
After that, you will reach a room where you have to solve some puzzles.
If you look from the catwalk at the machinery on the left side of the room you can spot the third Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Weapon Part.
You use the ladder to go down, and then you escape the first piston with spikes. Now you can grab the Explosion Amplifier Weapon Part using Kinesis.
Log #2 (Audio Log)
Eventually, you escape the spiked pistons and you end up in a room overlooking the one with the puzzles.
Here is a supply depot key, and if you take it you will unlock the second Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Log and also trigger an optional mission.
Blueprint #1 (Medic Support Handgun)
Just ahead the supply depot key is the first Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Blueprint on top of a wooden box.
Log #3 (Audio Log)
After you acquire the Arctic Survival Suit at the kiosk, you can pass the security check. You open the grilled door and on your left side is the third Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Log.
Note: After you head outside the main building, you have a choice: you can either go straight ahead to continue the chapter, or you can follow the optional mission which is covered later in our collectibles guide. However, if you don’t want to replay the chapter, you should do the optional mission right now.
Weapon Part #4 (Tesla Core)
Regardless of your choice, you follow your locator inside a small shack that has a security checkpoint.
The fourth Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Weapon Part is on a shelf on your left side.
Weapon Part #5 (Heavy Standard Frame)
The fifth Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Weapon Part can be found later, after the fight with the big Necromorph. When the fight is over, you need to go inside the outpost.
In the second room from the entrance you have to keep an eye out on your right side to find the Weapon Part collectible (before the ladder).
Blueprint #2 (Pulse Rifle)

You complete the mini-game to open the door, and then you collect the fifth Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Log from the second shelf on your left.
Circuit #2 (+2 Clip -1 Damage)
You continue through the garage (even if the locator says otherwise) and immediately after you head outside, you turn left to see the fuse box with the second Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Circuit.
Note: Optional Mission Supply Depot begins now.
Supply Depot Log #1 (Audio Log)
The optional mission in Chapter 9 takes place in the supply depot from Chapter 8 that required a key card (where you picked up the Artifact from the catwalk).

Supply Depot Log #2 (Text Log)
You follow your locator in the next room, and from the desk on your right you pick up the second Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Supply Depot Log.

Next, you continue towards your objective until you reach the room that has dead people held in some sort of torture devices (this is the room where you are ambushed by a bunch of Necromorphs if you try to open the next door).
The third Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Supply Depot Log is on the desk near the stairs.
Supply Depot Weapon Part #1 (Repeater)
At some point, you have to acquire a battery in order to open the door where your locator points.
However, there are three available spots in which you can put the battery, and if you insert it in the closest one from where you picked up the battery (not the spot thats on the catwalk), you will open a storage room that contains the first Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Supply Depot Weapon Part.
Supply Depot Log #4 (Text Log)
The fourth Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Supply Depot Log can be acquired after you use the cargo lift.
Inside the room with the engineering bench, as you enter, you look for the text log on the small table thats on your right side.
Supply Depot Blueprint #1 (Heavy Metal Thunder)
After you lower the bridge using Kinesis, you will encounter in your path a locked door that requires a Tungsten Torque Bar.
Assuming you crafted one at the Bench, you use it on the door, because inside you can find the Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Supply Depot Blueprint.
Supply Depot Log #5 (Audio Log)
After a few more chambers, you have to use an elevator. As soon as you get outside, two Necromorphs attack you.

Supply Depot Weapon Part #2 (Scope)

Next, you use another elevator, and once again, you are attacked by some enemies. If you turn left when you exit the elevator, you should see a fuse box near the lockers.
You open it to collect the third Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Supply Depot Circuit.
Supply Depot Weapon Part #3 (Electrocution Module)
Before exiting the supply depot, you might want to use the elevator next to the suit kiosk. This takes you to a tram, and in the same area, there is a bench and also a kiosk.
If you look between them you should spot the third Dead Space 3 Chapter 9 Supply Depot Weapon Part in the dark, on top of some sort of vending machine.
Chapter 10 starts when Isaac reunites with Ellie, Norton and Santos inside the Excavation Headquarters.
