See it here first . . . We show you gameplay of The Devil Horns (aka “Foam Finger”) which becomes available after completing Classic Mode. This is an extremely powerful weapon in Dead Space 3, and arguably one of the hardest unlockables in the game.

Hidden Achievements and Trophies
Many of the achievements/trophies are earned as you progress through the game. For example, as you complete a chapter or get through an area alive, you earn these rewards.
Others require you to collect items such as logs, circuits, or weapon parts. However, some require actions that would be out of the ordinary, and are therefore easy to miss if you do not know about them and know what to do.
Here are some tips to help you get those tougher or more obscure achievements/trophies.
Under a Buck
In Chapter 4, when you enter the admiral’s quarters, shoot the deer head on the wall to earn this award.
This award is earned while you are riding the shuttle down to Tau Volantis in Chapter 7. To get it, shoot down at least 70 targets.
In Chapter 9, get through the Way Station to the pump room without alerting any Feeders. Don’t aim at them with your weapon, and pick up objects with kinesis and throw them across the room to distract the Feeders so that you can get past them.
While in Chapter 10, you must get past the large drill without taking any damage. Stay out of its way and use kinesis to slow it down so that you can shoot the controls in the middle.
To get this award, you need to kill at least five Cysts using the poisonous sterilization gas in Chapter 14. To do this, avoid killing the Cysts while you get to the controls.
This little statue is tough to find. It is in the Reaper Barracks, which is an optional quest in Chapter 14. Look for it behind the large pump that is still running in the pump room. Use stasis to slow down the pump and then, as it moves to the right, grab the Peng with kinesis to pull it out of the pumping chamber. Check out the walkthrough for Chapter 14 of the game for a detailed explanation of how to get the Peng.
Many of the achievements/trophies are awarded for killing Necromorphs. Some are for dismembering limbs or killing them while they are in stasis.
Finally, there are a few achievements/trophies that are rewarded for upgrading your items and weapons. Be sure to upgrade your stasis first, and then your RIG. This will give you a reward. Then fully upgrade one of your weapons for another reward. Finally, fully upgrade four weapons and then select them all for your use during play to get another reward.
