Dead Space 3 begins with the Prologue: Beginnings mission and although this is a rather short mission there is an important collectible located here – S.C.A.F. Artifact 01.
S.C.A.F. Artifact 01
As soon as the game starts you will be instructed to use your computer to guide you to your objective. There will be a blue line showing you the way. What you should do is turn left instead of follow the blue line. You will get to a stone wall and then just follow the wall and you will see the artifact shining in the distance. If you walked out of the snow storm you went too far.
