SILENT HILL 2 WALKTHROUGH By Rob Matter of “Silent Hill Genesis” Copyright 2004 Rob Matter LAST UPDATE: 8 May 2006 ======================================================================= INTRODUCTION ======================================================================= This walkthrough covers SILENT HILL 2 for the Sony Playstation 2. The Xbox version is the same, aside from an extra scenario and a few items that aren’t listed here. This was written in 2002. This walkthrough is based on HARD ACTION mode. All the health items and ammo locations/listings are somewhat unique to that difficulty level. Obviously, if you're playing on a lower difficulty, the battle strategies will leave you standing even better. When I use a directional phrase (Right, Left) I am referring to so in relation to James' point of view. When I want to describe something in relation to the player's point of you, I'll use a cardinal point (West, East, North, and South). You will usually have a map, so that will help if you don't know your cardinal points. UPDATES 8 May 2006: Fixed minor directive mistakes.

Make sure you know how do a quick-turn-around (press L1 + R1). 3. The maps are your best friends. I will often give you instructions based on their features. 4. I find no good reason to engage the monsters on the streets. They're easy to evade. 5. Conserve ammo in the beginning, and you'll be spinning free later on.

ENTERING SILENT HILL ======================================================================= Leave the bathroom through the somewhat concealed entrance to James' right. Pick the Silent Hill map out of his car. If you're a beginner, you may want to use this area to practice controlling James, since it can be difficult. Take the path past the Toluca Lake sign. You'll come into a hilly area where there is but a single path to follow. You'll eventually pass a well, which contains a savepoint. Continue to the graveyard where you'll meet... Walk straight back to a cabin (which you cannot access), to the right of which is the exit. You'll follow an extremely long, singular path. Just keep on going until you get to a street sign, Sanders and Wiltse. To the left of the flower shop is a workbench where you can find a First Aid Kit. With that, travel West until you come to some blood in the road. Before following the figure, get the Health drink from the stairs of the building on the corner, across the street. There are two health drinks next to garage doors on the East side of Lindsey St.; one before the Vachss Rd. junction, and one after. Onto Vashss, the fenced-in area on the right side contains a savepoint and two Health Drinks. Further up the road, you'll eventually come to a sewage drain. Examine it enter, where you'll find... Utilize your new 4x4 and knock the douche on its behind. Now head back to the main road. ======================================================================= 2. EASTERN SOUTH VALE ======================================================================= Head West on Katz, then North onto Martin. There's a Health drink on the left side of the street, by the corner of the fence. You'll come to a dead-end with a mutilated body, from which you can obtain the Apartment Gate Key. Now head South on Martin, past Katz, and on the East side you'll find a Health drink in front of a garage shutter. Go West on Sanders, where you'll find a Health drink on some stairs on the North side. There is a First Aid Kit in the back of the Happy Burger parking lot. Go the end of Saul St. where you'll find a motor home on the left side. It contains a savepoint, and a note that directs you to Neely's Bar. As your going up Neely St., pick up the First Aid Kit on the left side of the road, in font of the Sports Injury Center. Enter Neely's bar from the West side. The map inside will direct you to Woodside Apartments. Before heading there, get the First Aid kit near the Lucky Jade Restaurant entrance. There are some interesting objects on the ground at the North end of Neely Street, if you’re interested. You can enter the apartments through the second gate from the corner. ======================================================================= 3. WOODSIDE APARTMENTS ======================================================================= In the Lobby, you can find a savepoint, a Health Drink, and the apartments map. Head the second floor, to Room 205 where you receive the beloved Pocket Flashlight. Go to the third floor and examine the bars, and choose Yes to attempt to pick up the key. Go to Room 301 to find your second beloved, the Handgun. Head down to Room 210, where there's a pack of Ammo in the living room, and in the right bedroom. Now head to room 208. Grab the Key to Room 202 off the shelf, and head to that location. Pick up the Health Drink in the kitchen, then go in the bedroom and examine the whole in the wall. Stick your hand in to get the Clock Key. Go back to room 208 and use the key to open the clock. In that room, there are markings on the wall that denote the correct position of the clock hands. Set the clock (9:10) so that you hear a click, then examine the right side and push it aside. The passage leads to Room 209, where you'll find a savepoint and a Health Drink. Head to the back stairwell, to the third floor (there is a pack of ammo on the banister), and to Room 307. After the sequence, get the Courtyard Key from the closet. In Room 303, get the Ammo from the bedroom, the First Aid Kit from the living room, and the Health Drink from the kitchen. Back out in the hallway, you can get the Fire Escape Key near the bars, and an Ammo pack in the laundry room. Now go the Eastern staircase and down to the ground floor where you can find Canned Juice at the end of the hallway. Unlock the double doors to the outside, and re-enter the building through the main entrance. Go to the laundry room on the second floor and throw the Canned Juice down the garbage chute. Go back outside and claim your prize, the Old Man Coin. Back in the Lobby, you can unlock the door the courtyard. Run into the pool and grab the Snake Coin from the carriage. I find that more resources are wasted if you try to fight your way in. Then go the Eastern doorway into the first floor hallway. You'll find Ammo in Room 104. Go to Room 101, get the Ammo, and go into the bathroom. Finally, back through the courtyard, to the Lobby, to the second floor, and to the Western end of the hallway where you can unlock the fire escape door and go the adjacent building. ======================================================================= 4. BLUE CREEK APARTMENTS ======================================================================= Go to this apartment's bathroom and stick your hand in the toilet. Use the combination from the wallet to open the safe in the living room. (If there are Roman numerals, use the sum of the digits.) It contains four packs of handgun bullets. Grab the Health Drink from the kitchen and head out. Go to the staircase and get the map off the floor. On the first floor, get the First Aid Kid from the laundry room. Go to Room 109 where you'll find Handgun Bullets, then go into the bedroom. After the sequence, get the Prisoner Coin off the table. Now take your three coins to Room 105. Place the coins in the desk in the order hinted at in the poem. Easy: Old Man, Empty, Snake, Empty, Prisoner Normal: Empty, Old Man, Prisoner, Empty, Snake Hard: Empty, Old Man, Empty, Snake, Prisoner You'll be rewarded with the Lyne House Key. Take notice of the savepoint in the back, and head out. You can now open Room 209. Use the balcony to get to Room 208, where there is Ammo on the chair, and the Apartment Stairway Key on the bed. It is IMPERATIVE that you save your game in here, making sure that you're at full health. You can gain access to the north stairway from the second floor. Make sure your gun is fully loaded. BOSS FIGHT: Pyramid Head Run to a corner and shoot as much as possible. When he comes into your vision, run around to the opposite corner. An overheard swipe of his sword means instant death, so be weary. In Hard mode, it takes about 40-45 bullets to make him retreat. Head down the stairs and outside. ======================================================================= 5. WESTERN SOUTH VALE ======================================================================= There's a First Aid Kit in the dead end near the apartment exit. Go North to Nathan Ave.; a sequence will occur as you go. As you continue, you might notice some stairs on the left side. They're a dead end but there are two Ammo packs hidden at the top. When you get to Rosewater park, take the first left and walk straight back to a pair of Ammo packs. Go past the "Caution" sign and take a left at the bottom of the stairs. You'll see a Health Drink on the bench. Go down another level, then make a right, up a few steps, and you'll come to a gazebo with Ammo on the bench next to it. Make a right and down to an observation level, where you'll see a Health Drink next to the telescope. Head West along the path until the sequence occurs. So now you have the almighty burden of dragging this wench around. Don't let her take damage, especially in Hard mode. Head along the path until you come to the other side of the park. Go straight until you see a manhole on your right, then make a left. Follow the path until you come to a statue; make note of its location for later. Head to the main road, on the way to which you find a Health Drink on the right side of the path. There's a pack of Ammo in the Eastern dead end of Nathan Ave on the South side. Go South on Munson and go East onto the small alley next to the Blue Creek Apartments. It's a dead end that contains a Health Drink. Near Jack's Inn you'll see a giant "N" sign. It signifies an alley to travel through, which contains a savepoint on one of the cars. Now head West on Nathan to the Texxon station. You'll hear a running car that has a Steel Pipe sticking out of it -- your trusty new weapon. There's a truck in the back of the station, in front of which are two Health Drinks and Ammo. Near the giant tire picture just off Carroll St., you'll find another Health Drink and more Ammo. Now go across the street to Pete's Bowl-o-rama, and use the Northern entrance. Pass through the staff room to engage the sequence. Before pursuing Laura, check the back of the lanes for some Ammo, then head out front. Go around the back parking lot, through the fence, and into the alley. Maria will open the door to the strip club, tee-hee. Go upstairs, pass through the bar area that has a First Aid Kit on a chair, and exit through the main entrance. You'll be on Carroll St. Head South and follow Laura into the Hospital. ======================================================================= 6. BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL ======================================================================= Grab the map off the wall, and go right into the Reception Office where you'll find a Health Drink and a savepoint. The Document Room contains the Purple Bull Key. Head to the stairs and to the second floor. In the Men's Locker Room, examine the lab coat to find the Examination Room Key. In the Woman's Locker Room, you'll find the Shotgun in the locker, and the Bent Needle off the teddy bear. Go into the patient wing (the corridor on the left side of the map), where there is Ammo on one of the stools. Room M6 contains a Health Drink and Shotgun Shells. Room M3 contains a Health Drink and Handgun Bullets. Room M2 contains the Lapis Eye Key and Shotgun Shells. Examination Room 3 contains carbon paper with a numeric password that you should write down, as well as a First Aid Kit. Now go back to the first floor and pass through the Examination Room into the Doctor's Lounge. There are Shotgun Shells in the sink. Also take notice of the dry-erase board which mentions the patient wing and the letter T. Then go to the third floor via the stairs. There's a First Aid Kit in the corner of the main hallway. To get into the patient wing, use the hint from the dry-erase board. (Letter "T" in Hard Mode represents the code 1328.) Go to S3, discard the wench, and get the Roof Key. S11 contains a savepoint and a Health Drink. Use the stairway to get to the roof. Read the diary if you want, check the other door, walk around for a bit, then try to go back down... You'll be extremely damaged, so use a First Aid kit and a Health Drink. Go into the second cell where there will be a numeric code on the wall; write it down, just as it looks. Go to Room S12 on the third floor. The box requires for you to open four separate locks. Firs use the Lapis Eye Key, then enter the carbon paper number on the right lock, then the code from the cell on the left lock, and finally the Purple Bull Key to open the box itself. You'll receive a Piece of Hair for your trouble. Great, huh? Take it to the Shower Room on the third floor, combine it with the Bent Needle, and use it to fish the Elevator Key out of the drain. Head to the elevator and go to the first floor. Room C3 contains Handgun Bullets and Shotgun Shells. At this point you may want to go back to the Reception Room and save your game (the door to the first floor main hallway is open now). Then enter Room C2. BOSS FIGHT: MANDARINS Use your shotgun. Stay out from under them. Suggest taking one shot, then moving to different spot. 6-8 direct hits to kill. Beware, a third one will come after the first two die. ======================================================================= 7. BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL, V2 ======================================================================= Exit the garden into the "hallway" where you'll find Shotgun Shells and a savepoint. Room C2 contains a First Aid Kit. C1 contains a Health Drink and Handgun Ammo. Go to the elevator and head to the second floor. M6 contains Handgun Bullets and a First Aid Kit, as well as Dry Cell Battery and the Basement Storeroom Key. M4 contains Shotgun Shells and a Health Drink. Now onto the third floor. Room S11 contains Handgun Bullets and an Ampoule. Go into the main hallway and into the Storeroom. It contains a First Aid Kit, Handgun Bullets, and Shotgun Shells. Take the main stairway, which contains a savepoint, down to the basement. Get the Shotgun Shells off the floor and move the shelf aside. Go down into the sub-basement to find the Copper Ring. Now that you have Maria, she can help you to open the refrigerator in the second floor Day Room. On your way there, however, the elevator ride will manifest a cryptic radio program. (You can try to guess the right answers, or I can just tell you: 3, 1, and 3.) There’s no rush to play the game, so continue to get Lead Ring from the refrigerator. Take your two rings to the third floor and stick them on the hand of the lady on the stairway door. (At this point, you can go to the Storeroom and claim your prize per the radio program. Five boxes of Shells and two Ampoules -- quite the loot.)I would strongly recommend that you save your game in the main stairwell before heading to the basement via the "lady" door. Head all the way to the basement. BOSS FIGHT: PYRAMID HEAD II This isn't really a fight, because the objective is only to run. However, it can be very tricky considering you need to make it to the elevator while keeping Maria alive. In Easy and Normal modes, it's a piece of cake; you can easily run to the elevator before Pyramid Head can finish her. In Hard mode, however, simply running is impossible. I would like to thank "Blue Phoenix" on the Dark Legacy forums for giving me this strategy: Stab Pyramid Head with the Steel Pipe, take two steps back, and repeat until you reach the elevator. Apparently, he won't attack at all if you keep on stabbing him without a miss. The only hard part is rounding the corners while continuously stabbing, in which case you need to be aware of the strafe command (press L1 or L2 to go left or right respectively). Towards the end, after the last turn, stabbing doesn't seem to halt Pyramid Head's attacks, at which point you can just up and run for the elevator. It only took me two tries to get this right, after countless failed attempts at other strategies. When you get to the first floor, go to the Director's Room and pick up the Hospital Lobby Key and take notice of the emphasized locations on the map. Before exiting through the main entrance, for the love of God, save your game at the savepoint next to the doors. ======================================================================= 8. SOUTH VALE, V2 ======================================================================= If you backtrack North on Carroll, There are Shotgun Shells in front of the large truck. The Western End of Rendell contains an Ampoule, Handgun Bullets, a First Aid Kit, and a Health Drink. Now head East on Rendell. About half way down, on the left side, you'll notice a fenced in area, in front of which are two packs of Shotgun Shells and a pack of Rifle Shells (later, baby). Go to the right, staying within the outer fence, and you'll come to some Handgun Bullets and more Rifle Shells. Go to the South end of Munson, where you'll find two packs of Handgun Bullets. Near the Southeast corner of Munson and Saul, there are two Health Drinks in a doorway. Finally, head into Saul St. to find the gate to the East side of South Vale. The monsters hanging from the grating shouldn't be difficult to evade. Get the First Aid Kit from the front of the motor home, the two packs of Shotgun Shells located in front of the car next to it. On the same side of the road, further up, there are newspaper venders with two packs of Handgun Bullets next to them. The store on the Northwest corner of Saul and Neely has a First Aid Kit in front of it. There are Rifle Shells in front of the Happy Burger menu sign, and some more in the back of its parking lot. The corner entrance of Neely's bar has Handgun Bullets lying in the doorway. Grand Market and the store to the left of it both have Health Drinks in their doorways. The corner entrance of Grand Market has Handgun Bullets in its doorway. On the Southwest corner of Sanders and Lindsey, there are some steps with two packs of Shotgun Shells. In the parking lot of the Flower Shop, at the end of Sanders, has two packs of Handgun Bullets and one of Shotgun Shells. Finally, you can go to the marked location on Lindsey St. to get the Wrench and the letter. Go to the Cafe Texan and get the Handgun Bullets from its doorway. On the Southeastern corner of Vachss and Lindsey, there are Handgun Bullets in the shutter doorway. Big Jay's West entrance has a Health Drink and Rifle Shells in its doorway. There are Handgun Bullets in the entrance of Lucky Jade Restaurant. Go through the now-open door at the West end of Katz St. You'll be back in Western South Vale. On the Southwest corner of Katz and Munson, there are some stairs with a Health Drink and some Handgun Bullets on them. There are two First Aid Kits on opposite sides of the road at the end of Katz St. Save your game in the Jack's Inn parking lot if you haven't done so in a while. Head to Rosewater Park. There are two packs of Shotgun Shells on the left side of the entrance path. You can go all the way to the East side of the park to find more packs of Shells. (I even went back to the Apartment exit, but there's nothing there.) What you're actually looking for is the Jennifer Carroll statue, near where you first came in. In the back of it, dig up the metal box and unfasten it with the Wrench. You'll get the Old Bronze Key, then head out. There's a Health Drink in front of the Bowling Alley. (The building itself is open, but there's absolutely nothing inside.) There are Rifle Shells and Handgun Bullets at the very West end of Nathan Ave. You've now collected all the items, so head to the Historical Center, in the parking lot of which is a First Aid Kit. Say goodbye to the streets of Silent Hill. ======================================================================= 9. HISTORICAL SOCIETY ======================================================================= Save your game in the lobby if you wish, then go through the double doors in the next room. Head down the seemingly endless staircase, and go through the door. Get the First Aid Kit from off the table in the first room. Make a left out of the "cell" and then a right, and go into the first door on the right. Pick up the Handgun Bullets and admire the beautiful paintings. The final room in the hallway has a big, dark whole in the center; jump down it. You'll end up the bottom of a well. Examine the wall for the spot that "feels different" and hit it with your Steel Pipe. Travel through the watery passage and through the only open door. You'll notice the vertical hallway with the locked fence. Go into the side room and pick up the Spiral-winding Stair Key. When the light goes out, position James in front of the key panel next to the door, and then use the Dry Cell Battery. Immediately examine the key panel and look for the three buttons that are lit up. The door requires a three-digit code, selected from those three numbers in an undetermined order. There are only six possible combinations, so try your luck. Once you get out, open the gate in the vertical hallway and jump down. ======================================================================= 10. TOLUCA PRISON ======================================================================= Get the two Health Drinks off the tables, along with the Gluttonous Pig Tablet, and save your game if necessary. Head left in the first hallway. The second table you come to has the map on it. (Not much of a help, since the rooms aren't labeled.) In the southern hall of cells, the first open cell contains Handgun Bullets; the second contains a Wax Doll. The Eastern Hallway has Handgun Bullets on the table. Go West into the small rooms from the middle of this hallway; it contains Rifle Shells. Now onto the Northern hall of cells. Towards the end, an unlocked cell contains the Oppressor Tablet. Go East into the central cell area. In the Northern shower you'll find the Seductress Tablet. Now that you have the three tablets, take them to the extremely large room on the East side of the map. Put them in the gallows, and then go back to the door to find the Horseshoe. Go back into the Western Hall. Towards the Northern end there are two open doors on the left. The first contains a First Aid Kit, the second gives you passage into the prison's main hallway. The room to the right of the one that you entered through contains the Lighter. Three doors down is the boy's bathroom with a savepoint inside. On the West side of the hallway, the only open door is the one southernmost. In this room, get the First Aid Kit, the Ampoule, and the Health Drink. Further, into the back room, you'll find Handgun Bullets, Shotgun Shells, two packs of Rifle Shells, and your trusty new Hunting Rifle. Now go back into the hall and through the South gate. Examine the hatch in the middle of the floor, then combine the Lighter, the Horseshoe, and the Wax Doll, and use them to open it. Jump down. Go through the double doors at the end. Continue through the room with the corpses, and then jump down the hole. Open the door and jump down. Get on the elevator and collect the First Aid Kit, Rifle Shells, Shotgun Shells, and Handgun Bullets. When you reach the bottom, suggest saving your game, and head through the door. ======================================================================= 11. LABYRINTH ======================================================================= Take the first left, then go straight, then left and down either ladder. You'll be a circular hallway with the Pyramid Head. Go in either direction and into the next door you come to (if you encounter the Pyramid Head, go the other way). In the central room you'll find his Great Knife, along with two packs of Shotgun Shells. Go out and back up either latter. Backtrack, and this time take the right at the junction, then down the ladder. Follow the watery passage to another ladder, which will lead you to a room with a strange rotating box. Go around to the back and switch it so that the red-eyed side is facing you, right side up. From here, rotate the box left or right so that you can pass through both doorways of the corresponding room. Go through, and after the sequence, go back to the room with the box-heads and get the Wire Cutter from the electric box. Go back to the beginning of the labyrinth and use the Wire Cutters on the doorway blocked off by wires, then go down the ladder. Go up the first ladder on the right, make the first right, and go down the other ladder. Go around to the right and into the somewhat concealed portion of the passage, at the end of which is another ladder. (So many ladders! If you're on track you should now come to an area with a metal fence and metal grating on a portion of the floor.) Go around the fence and down ANOTHER ladder. Follow the path around a corner, and take the first left that will lead to a ladder. Up it, you'll find some Handgun Bullets, then go down the next ladder. Beware that Pyramid Head is roaming around in the next passage. Your destination lies in taking the first left, but you can travel further to a ladder in the back to find two packs of Handgun Bullets. You'll come up to a room with a newspaper on the floor, and a savepoint that I strongly suggest you use. Continue into the next hallway and equip your Hunting Rifle. BOSS FIGHT: DOORMAN This can be somewhat annoying, considering the small space. However, your Hunting Rifle has enough stopping power to keep him off you if you fire continuously. Just get into the far corner and use the rifle to force him back. Cease firing for a moment when he hits the ground. Around 10 shots in Hard mode to kill. Head out and go into the next hallway. The first door in the right contains six hanging bodies. Put that aside for the moment and head to the door on the left at the end of the hall. You'll find that you need to pull the rope that corresponds to the innocent criminal. Easy: Kidnapper Normal: Arsonist Hard: Counterfeiter When you pull the right rope, go back to the room with the bodies to find the Key of the Persecuted. Now go through the door at the end of the hall. Use the key to open the handcuffs and the gate. Go down the latter and straight ahead to meet up with Maria. Then go back into the hallway, through the now-open gate, and up the ladder. Get the First Aid Kit on the floor and head into the graveyard where you'll find an Ampoule and three packs of Shotgun Shells. Suggesting equipping your Rifle and saving your game. Then jump down into the grave; go down the long hallway and through the door. BOSS FIGHT: EDDIE Try shooting him just when he raises his gun. The first part takes 8 shots from the Rifle in Hard mode. When he runs off, pick up the Shotgun and Rifle Shells, then reload and go through the door. In the second round, you can try dueling him, but don't be surprised if it consumes many resources. It's better to hit and run. Again, shoot him right when he raises his gun to shoot. Exit through the large, double doors. ======================================================================= 12. TOLUCA LAKE ======================================================================= Save your game on the dock, then get into the boat. HARD MODE CONTROLS: Straight: simultaneously turn the left joystick counter-clockwise and the right joystick clockwise Reverse: Simultaneously turn the right joystick counter-clockwise and the left joystick clockwise Left Turn: turn the right joystick clockwise Right Turn: turn the left joystick counter-clockwise Turn to the right until you see the faint light in the distance. That is your objective. Go up the stairs, get the Little Mermaid Music Box from the fountain, and enter the hotel. ======================================================================= 13. LAKEVIEW HOTEL ======================================================================= Get the map off the wall as you walk in. First, go into the "Lake Shore" Restaurant, get the Fish Key from the table, and examine the piano for a cut-scene. Then go to the undefined, gray area of the map next to Cafe Toluca. The open room in the back contains Rifle Shells and three packs of Handgun Bullets. Go to the basement and get the can of Thinner from the elevator. Now go up to the Lobby and get the 312 Key from the Reception Room. Also take notice of the savepoint on the chair. On the second floor, you can find a First Aid Kit, two packs of Shotgun Shells, and two packs of Handgun Bullets in the Cloak Room, along with a suitcase that can be opened with the Fish Key. It contains the 204 Key. Back in the hallway, there are two more packs of Handgun Bullets on a table near the window. In the Reading Room lies two packs of Shotgun Shells, a Health Drink. Go to Room 204 and pick up the Employee Elevator Key. Cross over to the next room and use the Thinner to reveal the code on one of the photos on the bed. Use said code to open the suitcase and receive the Cinderella Music Box. In the Eastern second floor hallway, there are a Health Drink and Rifle Shells on the tables. Enter the gray area on the map next to the elevator. You'll find two Health Drinks on the cart. Try to use the elevator, it will tell you about the weight limit. You now have to store your entire inventory on the shelf, radio and flashlight included, and I suggest saving your game. Take the elevator to the first floor and grab the employee's map off the wall. Go into the Pantry and get the Snow White Music Box. Then go to the Office and get the Videotape and the Can Opener from the safe. In the Employee Lounge, you can find two packs of Rifle Shells. Go down the staircase and through the door. Take the first left turn and into the far door to the boiler room, where you can find the Bar Key and a First Aid Kit. Go back out and make a left, going into the farthest door to the bar kitchen. Get the three Health Drinks and use the Can Opener to open the can and get the Light Bulb. Go into the bar itself and put the Light Bulb in the lamp. You can now exit to the basement hallway. Go back to the second floor and get all your junk from the shelves. Take all three music boxes to the Lobby. If you're not an avid Disney fan, the indentation that speaks of a shoe is Cinderella; the one that speaks of beauty is Snow White, and other is Little Mermaid. So in Hard mode, from order of left to right, its Cinderella, Little Mermaid, and Snow White. Play the music box and get the Hotel Stairway Key. Open the stairway to the third floor and go to Room, you guessed it, 312. Stick the videotape in the VCR and enjoy the game's climax. ======================================================================= 14. THE FINALE (HOTEL V2) ======================================================================= Go out the door and down the stairs. Enter room 207, and you'll end up outside Room 204. Go into 202; you'll end up outside 219, so go to the elevator. Grab the two Ampoules off the table, then ride the elevator to the basement. Go through the bar, grabbing the five Health Drinks off the counter, and into the kitchen. It contains a First Aid Kit, two packs of Shotgun Shells, and two packs of Rifle Shells. Travel through the hallway to where the stairs would be. After the sequence, exit the way you entered then go up the stairs. In the next hallway, get the two Ampoules off the table, and the two packs of Rifle Shells near the exit. In the next room, you can save your game for the not-so-final time, then enter the double doors. BOSS FIGHT: TWIN PYRAMID HEADS Run to a corner and fire shots with the Hunting Rifle, then run to the next corner before they get close enough to attack. On Hard Mode, you might not even get one shot before you have to move again. Always access the menu and manually reload. About 30-40 shots before they die. Grab an egg from each Pyramid Head, and stick them in the doors to open them. Before heading out, I strongly suggest you go back to the previous room and save your game. Go through the back exit of the hotel, and down the long hallway. Climb the metal staircase, equip/reload your Rifle, and engage Mary at the top. BOSS FIGHT: MARIA/MARY This isn't as hard as the Pyramid Heads, but she does take about 40-50 Rifle shots to kill. You can outrun the butterflies, so do so until they retreat, at which point you should get a few shots in. Try to stay out from under her, as she will choke you with her tentacle. When she finally falls it takes one final shot to end it. ======================================================================= A. ENDINGS ======================================================================= There are five total endings to Silent Hill (six of you own the Xbox, “Greatest Hits” PS2, or PC version). There are three primary endings and three hidden endings. The following items describes the steps to get each one. “IN WATER” ENDING Be sure to examine Angela’s knife often. Examine the diary on the roof of the hospital, and listen to the headset in the Reading Room of the final hotel stage. Also, it helps to carry on in low health for many an extended duration. “MARIA” ENDING Treat Maria kindly and avoid references to James’ wife. Don’t look at the letter or the photo, and don’t allow the message to finish before exiting the long hallway at the end. Do not do anything mentioned for the “In Water” ending. Make sure Maria doesn’t get attacked, and allow her to keep up with you – don’t run ahead. Go back and visit her when she stops to rest in the hospital, and when she’s behind bars. “LEAVE” ENDING Avoid suicidal thoughts and thoughts of other women, focusing only on the mission of finding James’ wife. Examine the photo and the letter often, and listen to the message in the long hallway towards the end in it’s entirety. Do not do anything mentioned for the “In Water” ending. Treat Maria badly, allowing her take damage and ignoring her whenever possible. “REBITH” ENDING This ending is available only in subsequent rounds through the game. Find the White Chrism in the Blue Creek Apartments (Room 105), the Book of Lost Memories in the newspaper vendor near the Texxon station, the Obsidian Goblet in the display case in the Historical Society, and the Book of Crimson Ceremony in the Reading Room of the final hotel stage. SECRET ENDING I This ending is available only after achieving the other four endings. Just West of Jack’s Inn in Sale Vale there is a doghouse that contains the Dog Key. Use this to open the Observation Deck in the hotel immediately after viewing the video. SECRET ENDING II (not available in original PS2 version) This ending is available only after completing the “Born from a Wish” scenario. Simply find the Blue Gem in the restroom at the beginning of the game and use it in the following locations: 1. “Garden” courtyard of Brookhaven Hospital 2. Boat Docks (immediately after Labyrinth) 3. Lake View Hotel, Room 312 ======================================================================= B. SECRETS/HIDDEN ITEMS ======================================================================= SUBSEQUENT TRIALS Keep watching past the credits to be able to save your game, along with viewing your game score. Load that save to begin another subsequent round of the game in which extra features are available. You can repeat the process to accumulate as many completed rounds as possible. EXTRA OPTIONS While in the standard options menu, press any of the shoulder buttons (R1, R2, L1, or L2) to access the hidden, extra options. You can control things such as map view, camera view, blood color, etc. BULLET ADJUST After completing the game and starting a new round (see above), you can access the Extra Options (also see above) to adjust the bullet count, which will multiply the amount of bullets in a single box by the factor at which it is set. Each completed round allows the bullet adjust to go one number higher. BONUS RIDDLE MODE Complete three times with each riddle mode to unlock a new, harder one. ALL MEMOS READABLE (not available in original PS2 version) Complete the game enough times to get all 5 endings, and parts of memos around town (such as the grave stone on the street in the beginning) will have the gaps in the texts completed. CHAINSAW The chainsaw is available in the second round. It is located on the pile of bloodstained logs on the long, dirt road in the beginning of the game. It can be heard from far away, so you can’t miss it. HYPERSPRAY The Hyperspray can be found in the trailer on Saul St., but it is only available in subsequent rounds through the game. It is best explained as a “Points” system for obtaining it. An Easy Action mode is worth 1 point, Normal – 2 points, and Hard – 3 points. Three (3) total points are necessary to unlock the hyperspray. It can be harmful to James if used to much, and sometimes it must be shaken. It’s power varies with your end rank. BLUE GEM (not available in original PS2 version) Complete the “Born from a Wish” scenario to unlock this item for the regular game (Letter from Silent Heaven). It is used to achieve the second secret ending (see Endings section). ======================================================================= C.
