Artifact #1 (S.C.A.F. Artifact 01)

The first Dead Space 3 collectible is an Artifact, more precisely the first S.C.A.F. Artifact. As soon as the game begins, you are instructed to follow the locator (the blue line that points towards the current objective).

You walk between two rocks (following the locator) and then you go left until you reach the mountain. After a short walk alongside the mountain you can see a sharp rock.

Near the rock is a glowing light representing the Dead Space 3 Prologue Artifact.

Once the first Dead Space 3 Artifact is acquired, you continue the mission until you retrieve the Codex, and after the cutscene showing the general, Chapter 1: Rude Awakening, begins.
