Throughout Dead Space 2, Isaac encounters several variants of the Necromorph infestation.
Slasher : The most common form of Necromorph, it attacks using two large blades sprouted from the victim's hands and stabs you. It has an enhanced form which is encountered later in the game.
Puker : A common form of Necromorph which attacks by projecting corrosive bile. It uses its disfigured claws to slash at its victims when approached. Enhanced Pukers are encountered later in the game. It is first introduced in Dead Space 2.
Tripod : A large three-legged Necromorph that strikes or impales with its long bladed tongue. A unique female variant is encountered in the Church of Unitology. It is first introduced in Dead Space 2, though is relatively uncommon in the game.
Infector : A bat-like Necromorph which infects corpses with its proboscis and turning them into new Necromorphs. The Infector can create enhanced forms of the Slashers and Leapers.
Leaper : A Necromorph which attacks with its large tail, a fusion of the victim's legs and intestines. It also has an enhanced form encountered later in the game.
Spitter : A Necromorph which is almost identical in appearance and attack to the female Slasher. It can also spit out acidic projectiles. The Spitter is first introduced in Dead Space 2.
Exploder : A small, thin Necromorph with an appendage containing a highly explosive organic compound. It has a suicidal attack.
The Pack : Childlike Necromorphs with long talons on each hand. Usually encountered in large groups. The Pack is first introduced in Dead Space 2.
Stalker : A Necromorph that attacks its prey by means of flanking and group tactics. They approach slowly and quietly in order not to be discovered, and then charge at their prey. Enhanced variants are encountered later in the game. Stalkers are first introduced in Dead Space 2.
Lurker : Reanimated infants that are often found in Zero Gravity. They attack with three barbed tentacles that fire quills. It also has an enhanced form encountered later in the game.
Swarmer : Tiny Necromorphs, which appear to be reanimated flesh, that can jump a short distance at victims and rip away at their flesh.
Pregnant : A large hulking Necromorph with two large scythe-like blades. If weakened it can claw itself open to release a cluster of Swarmers.
Cyst : Small immobile Necromorphs that grow in the Corruption. They attack by launching explosive organic pods. Cysts make their first appearance in Dead Space 2.
Crawler : Reanimated babies with explosive sacs in their stomachs. Like Exploders, Crawlers attacks are suicidal. They first appear in Dead Space 2.
Brute : A very large and powerful Necromorph that can charge with great bursts of speed, using its weight and strength to crush its victims. An enhanced form is encountered later in the game.
Guardian : A rare stationary Necromorph plastered to a wall with six deadly tentacles. It can fire out Pods as a form of self- defense and hindrance.
Pods : Small embryo-like Necromorphs that sprout tentacles and fire projectiles. They are 'born' from Guardians.
Nest : A large, rare Necromorph which takes the form of a female corpse fused to a tentacle with three bulbous yellow sacs, and fires small homing projectiles. It only occupies Zero Gravity environments and will encase itself in a membrane when approached. It is first introduced in Dead Space 2.
Divider : A tall and thin Necromorph with the ability to divide itself into multiple segments which can leap at victims. The Divider itself is very rare, although Divider components are encountered on several occasions.
Twitcher (Dead Space 2: Severed only) : A Necromorph similar to the Slasher, which uses its incredible speed to rapidly approach and slash foes with sharp talons on each arm. Twitchers in Dead Space 2: Severed differ in appearance to the Twitchers in Dead Space.
The gameplay in Dead Space 2 is far more varied than in Dead Space. Players are now required to hack to access certain areas, which is managed via a minigame. Kinesis is now faster and now allows for impalement using pointed objects such as a Slasher's blades, a mop, and poles. Players can now navigate zero-gravity environments in 360-degree motion, via a system of thrusters attached to Isaac's RIG. Like the first game, the primary enemies are the 'Necromorphs'; heavily mutated human corpses. The game is completely linear, with no tram stops or loading screens throughout the story. Also unlike the first game, chapters are not named in-game.
Dead Space 2 is the first game of the series to offer objective based competitive multiplayer. Taking on the roles of either a team of up to four Sprawl Security Officers or a pack of up to four Necromorph players, the Security Officer players must complete objectives, such as arming a powerful bomb, while the Necromorph players must attempt to stop them from completing their objectives.
