Dead Space Remake – How to defeat the Hunter in Chapter 5

Insert crying and frantic running here.

The Dead Space Remake is a game of terror, often resulting in soiled pants and panicked crying. But of all the necromorphs our brave Isaac Clarke encounters, there is none more terrifying than the Hunter. This seemingly unkillable monster soaks up the damage and regenerates rather quickly. Isaac had better come up with a permanent solution quickly if he wanted to make it off the Ishimura.

Can you kill the Hunter in Dead Space Remake?

After reaching Dr. Mercer in Chapter 5: Lethal Devotion, Isaac is trapped by the insane doctor. Mercer locks Isaac in Stasis and then sicks the Hunter upon him. At this point, players are forced into a scenario where they must run quickly to avoid both the Hunter and the poison gas. This game of cat and mouse continues until Isaac reaches the cryogenic lab.

Once in the lab, Dr. Mercer traps Isaac with the Hunter. In the center of the room is a smaller room with four doors. Players will need to lure the Hunter inside, completely dismember it so it has to regenerate, hit it with Stasis, and then run to the control panel in the adjoining room to freeze it. While it doesn't technically kill the Hunter, it at least stops it from chasing you. Now, if only we could do something similar with Isaac in Fortnite.
