The weapon bench is the greatest weapon building system Ive seen in a game.
Sorry about your luck, but it sounds like you never played any of the previous Dead Space games, or else you would know what the Force Gun does for you. It obliterates small enemies, and blasts big groups of them back so you dont get overwhelmed.
The game has a weapon test arena in the main menu, I strongly recommend entering this, tinkering with your weapons and testing them out. The amount of badassery you can create at the bench is ridiculous.
I love all of the Dead Space stuff. For anyone just getting into it, I recommend hitting up Netflix and checking out the films Dead Space: Downfall, and Dead Space: Aftermath.
Downfall leaves off in the moments where the Kellion is about to dock with the Ishimura, practicly the opening scene in Dead Space 1.
Aftermath bridges the gap, and gives a bit more story leading up to Dead Space 2.
Dead Space 3 has been kick-ass so far, and I absolutely love the casting of Simon Templeman (Kain from the Legacy Of Kain Series) to voice the main antagonist.
Pretty awesome trilogy of games.
