While largely faithful to the original, the Dead Space remake has a few tweaks and additions, including unexpected secret break room codes that you can enter to earn unique rewards, like a rather grim sea shanty.
These Easter eggs are interesting enough on their own, but they can also reward you with nodes to upgrade your suit or weapons, and help you finish your text and audio log collections.
To get these rewards, you must perform a specific sequence of actions in the correct area, so we have listed the location of the break room, along with all the break room codes in Dead Space, including the secret cheat code by Sea Shanty.

Dead Space Break Room and Sea Shack Codes Explained
To unlock the Sea Shanty secret Easter egg and other rewards in the Dead Space remake, you must perform secret codes while standing in a red circle in the break room.
There are only two ways to execute the secret code: trampling or melee. When you stomp and melee in the correct sequence within the circle, a reward will appear in the break room for you.
Although you can see these break room codes below, if you want to crack them yourself, you can find two complete break room codes at:
- Captain B. Mathius’s room in Executive Crew Quarters, Floor 3.
- Inside the circle in the break room.
The third code in the break room rewards you with the sea shanty, but it is divided into six parts around Ishimura. Thanks to Jester on Youtube for helping us fill in some of the blanks, here’s where to find all the pieces of the sea shanty code in Dead Space:
- Mining – Equipment Maintenance Bay.
- Communications Center – Maintenance Gondola.
- Bridge – Water Purification Storage.
- Crew Quarters – Behind the tram in Crew Quarters.
- Hydroponics – Cooling Tower.
- Flight deck – Flight control center.
Another important thing to keep in mind when entering break room codes is that they may not work until you get to the chapter where you were supposed to find the code. Some have reported that the codes worked for them after reaching Chapter 8, but it could be Chapter 10. Also, that’s when you discover the captain’s room in the Crew Quarters.
If the Sea Shanty code doesn’t work for you, you may need to complete the game first.
Dead Space Break Room Location
To enter the secret codes and claim your rewards, you must first find the break room.
The break room is located on the 3rd floor of the Bridge area in Dead Space. You can access it using the ‘Admin Systems and Comms Array’ elevator in the main atrium of the bridge.
Once you exit the elevator, exit the room, where you will find the break room through the door just ahead on the right.
You won’t be able to access the Bridge or the break room until at least Chapter 4, when the story will take you there. However, keep in mind that you may need to reach certain parts of the story before entering the codes will work.
Now that you’ve found the break room, it’s time to enter those secret codes!
We can help guide you through Ishimura with our weapon and suit locations, marker fragment locations for the secret ending, secret break room codes, security clearance levels, master override, the scientific methods side quest, and the location of Peng treasure. We also have solutions for the communications satellites and Centrifuge puzzles, a list of trophies and achievements, and strategies on how to beat the Hunter, Leviathan, and Leviathan Remnant bosses.
All Break Room Codes in Dead Space
There could be more codes yet to be discovered, but so far we’ve found three break room codes, and many thanks to Jester on YouTube for piecing together the third secret code.
Remember, you must perform the codes below while standing inside the red circle in the break room the entire time. Don’t leave the circle at any time or it won’t work.
With ‘S’ standing for ‘Stomp’ and ‘M’ standing for ‘melee’, here are all the break room codes in the Dead Space remake:
|Break room code
|M, M, S, M, M, S, S, M, M, M, S, S
|M, S, S, S, M, S, M, S, S, S, M, S
|Mysterious text log
|M, S, M, M, S, M, S, M, M, M, M, S
|Sea Shanty Audio Log
Have fun listening to the song of the sea!
