The ‘Fix the Comms Array’ puzzle in the Dead Space remake can be difficult if you don’t know what you’re doing.
The puzzle is one of the new elements that have been added to the remake, replacing a slightly similar puzzle that was in the original game.
In the original game, players had to form a circle of active satellite dishes to turn on the Array, but this time the solution is completely different.
If you’re stuck on the remake’s Fix the Comms Array puzzle, then, here’s how to solve it.

Dead Space remake: How to Fix the Comms Array
The key to solving the puzzle is the display on the screen in the middle of the room, which shows a hexagonal grid. This represents the layout of various notes dotted around the room, some of which have satellites in them.
Some of these satellites are broken – if you come across any, use your kinesis to pull them out and chuck them away, because they’re no use to you and they’ll only get in the way later.
The aim is to create a blue path that leads to the centre, which if you’re facing the screen means the ceiling above you.
To do this, turn away from the screen and you’ll see a bunch of other satellites in the walls, many of which have lit-up symbols on them that look like corners.
You have to use these symbols to create your path – when placed in the correct nodes, the blue light will follow these symbols and reach the top of the screen.
You can spend a while trying to figure this out, but we’ve already done the hard work for you – the screenshot above shows the solution.
Ignore the bottom-left node, and place the five symbols you see in their corresponding nodes and the blue light will reach the top, powering up the Comms Array.
