1.  Introduction

This game may be short but it has a ton of extras making the replay value
outstanding.  This guide is dedicated to nothing but the secrets of Silent Hill
3 and has no boss strategies or riddle solutions, consult another guide for
help in these areas.

                 * Extra Weapons - Explained effects of Heather Beams.
                        Added extra information about fast ways to max.

                        the extra weapons, your bullets adjust maxed and
                        Extreme game maxed, but I have to confirm it before
                        I put it in. 
                 * Extra Endings - Don't trust the info, but it matches
                        observed facts.  

2.  Extra Costumes

After completing the game once the Extra Costumes option appears on the main
menu.  By typing certain codes, sometimes found in the game, sometimes received
after completing certain tasks; you can access different shirts for Heather.
The codes are case-sensitive, so be careful to type them exactly as is.  All
codes are useable once the Extra Costume option appears, and you do not need
to complete the task to use it.  All codes for the Silent Hill Originals can be
found somewhere in the game, with a few exceptions, but only appear in an Extra
New Game.

c.  Douglas' Extra Costume
This is really more of a joke then anything else, you must start a new game in
order for it to work.

* Highlight the New Extra Game option in the menu that appears after you have
  completed the game once.
* Select your difficulty levels.
* If all was done correctly you should hear Heather sigh.

3.  Extra Weapons
All Extra Weapons are only available in an Extra New Game.  It is possible to
make the Beam Sabre and Flame Thrower available the first time through by
saving in Alessa's room, completing the game, then after it has saved the
system information completing it again.  This is also a fast way to get Bullet
Adjustment maxed out.

a.  Silver and Gold Pipes
At the end of the Overpass area, after you use the hairdryer, examine the
pool.  Drop in the Steel Pipe and a woman appears, answer her 3 questions
truthfully and she will give you all the pipes.

b.  Unlimited Submachine Gun
Appears if you defeat the final boss with a melee weapon.  You will find it at
the end of the alleyway after Heather climb out of the bathroom. 

c.  Beam Saber
Appears if you killed more enemies by melee combat then by shooting.  If it
does not appear it will after completing the game again.  You will find it at
the end of the hall near the room with the book store key, it is in the door.

d.  Flame Thrower
Appears if you killed more enemies by shooting then by melee combat.  If it
does not appear it will after completing the game again.  You will find it at
the front counter in the Bakery at the mall.

e.  Heather Beams 
Available after completing a game having killed more than 333 Enemies 
(including kills made in previous games).  In order to unlock it you usually
have to complete the game three times and it does not matter what you use to
kill the monsters.  In order to reach the total faster try playing the game on
Hard difficulty whenever possible.This weapon can be equipped right at the
beginning of the game by removing all other weapons.  Equiping the "Transform"
Costume upgrades Heather Beams to Sexy Beams.  The Beam Sabre has nothing to
do with this weapon.

Heather Beams * Homing Missiles - Hold X to fire; two comets curve out from
                                  Heathers Eyes and move toward an enemy.
              * Psycho Balls    - Tap X twice then hold to fire;  A series of 
                                  Hexagons fires out of Heather's eyes and can
                                  bounce off walls.
Sexy Beams    * Sexy Vision     - Hold X to fire; 8 Homing Missiles combined
                                  with Psycho Balls shoot from Heathers eyes.
              * Heat Vision     - Tap X twice and hold to fire; Two beams
                                  shoot from Heathers eyes which can then be
                                  directed at the enemy.

4.  Extra Options

The Extra Options Menu can be reached by accessing the regular menu then
pushing any one of the R1, R2, L1 or L2 buttons on your controller.

a.  Beginner Mode
Available after you have died in the game twice.

b.  Bullet Adjust
Available the first time you go through and multiplies the number of bullets
you get in a package.  Increments everytime you complete a game to a maximum
value of 5.

c.  Life Display
Available after you finish the Game in Hard Action or Riddle Mode.  Shows 
Heathers health and stamina as bars in the top left hand corner.

d. Extreme X
Available after completing the game in all other Action levels.  Every time
you complete a game it increments to a maximum level of X (10).  If you want
to reach X fairly quickly only try for the UFO ending each time through.

5.  Extra Endings

a.  Normal    - You will get this ending your first time through.  Afterwards
                you get this ending if you have accumulated less then 4000
b.  Possessed - Complete and Extra New Game with more then 4000 Points.  Ways
                to make sure you get this ending are:
                * Kill every monster you see, it is better to use the
                  Unlimited Submachine Gun and avoiding the use of melee
                  weapons although it doesn't matter what you use.  You will
                  need to kill about 100 or more. You get 10 points for every
                * Forgive the person at the Chapel. This gives you 1000 points.
                * Take as much damage as you can, more then 2000 points.  You
                  receive 1 point for every point of damage.
                * Do not go back to check on Douglas in the Amusement Park.
                * Do not take Douglas' Notebook from the Gypsy Shop.
                * Do not listen to the tape found in the chapel.
c.  Revenge   - Reach the apartment killing monsters with nothing but Heather
                Beams and/or Sexy Beams.  You only need to kill 30 or more
                monsters to get this ending.
