Dead Space Master Override Doors And Containers Locations

Master Override in Dead Space will basically let you access level 4 areas for high-quality loot. This guide shows how to get it.

In Dead Space, players find different doors and containers as they progress through the game. While most of these doors require Isaac to upgrade to a security clearance level however some of them also require Master Override Security Clearance.

Master Override Security Clearance unlike upgrading the Security Clearance level can be achieved through a side quest called You Are Not Authorized. Once reached, players can then get access to all the places they couldn’t unlock previously because they didn’t have this security clearance.

In this guide, we will delve into the details of Master Override Security Clearance in Dead Space Remake. Here we will cover everything starting from how players can get Master Override as well as providing you with all the locations where Master Override is needed.

How to get Master Security Override in Dead Space

Players can unlock Master Security Override once they are at chapter 4 in the game. Here players need to take up the side quest You Are Not Authorized. The quest will start from the Captain’s nest.

Players must then find all the RIGs and input them in the terminal in the Captain’s Nest. Doing this will complete the quest and Master Override security clearance will be unlocked and you will earn the Full Clearance achievement.

Below we have given the location of all seven crew RIGs you need to find in order to gain Master Security Override in Dead Space. Some of these RIGs will require specific Security Clearance levels before you can access the area.

To find these crew rigs easily, you can also track the quest in your quest log and it will lead you to each rig location.
