1. Why a Mission Mode SS rank FAQ?
==================================

Well first of all, I'm a very big fan of the Fatal Frame games (big fan
 of all horror games nuff said). I've always wanted to help out the
Fatal Frame fans in any way I could with a FAQ. But what kind Faq?
Well there's the normal FAQ for people who get stuck during the game.
But I wanted something more hardcore and challenging. So I was thinking
of either doing a mission mode SS rank FAQ or Ghost List 100% list FAQ
since these are the most asked questions around (other than being stuck
that is). At first I couldn't get all SS ranks so I moved to other ways
to improve my skills (by doing speed runs, finding all patterns and
weaknesses of enemies, not getting damaged, finding way to earn most
points in least time, playing through entire game without saving, etc).
After being satisfied with my newborn skills (nightmare mode 1h 34m no
damage clear) I went back to mission mode and gotten the rest of the
missions I couldn't get. So here it is, my mission mode FAQ.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

===============
2. General Tips
===============

-First of all, you should have your camera fully upgraded before doing
 mission mode.

-If the mission gives 0 Film, use it. Not just use it anytime though,
 only use it when using Blast shot (4 orb lens) and make sure your enemy
 dies to earn most points. Better way to earn even more points is to let
 your enemy have the least amount of health then use it. You will gain
 the extra points when trying to weaken your enemy to the least.

-If you're going for highest points with one round , make sure it's a
 Fatal Frame shot and the 3rd hit is a Blast shot. You usually will get
 over 10,000 of easy points. If you can't get a crush shot by the 3rd hit
 in time, use the Zero Spirit shot instead for 3rd hit.

-I will be naming the method above "SUPER COMBO" in the Mission section
 so you know what to do.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

=========
3. Ghosts
=========

I'll be pointing out each ghost's Fatal Frame moments to make the missions
a lot easier. :P

============================
Miyako Sudo/Masumi Makimura:
============================

1 Fatal Frame. One of the easiest Fatal Frames to detect since most basic
enemies use this technique as well. Their Fatal Frame occurs when they are
about to grab you. After 50% of their health is lost, they will add a new
attack. The new attack goes as they cry then turn around towards you at a
very fast speed. Zero shot at most during that attack.

================
Man In Dark:
================

1 Fatal Frame. When he's close to you, he will bend down then come back up.
Fatal Frame time.

==================
Woman in Dark:
==================

1 Fatal Frame. Right when they are about to grab you. Watchout though, they
like to teleport and get you from behind.

=======
Seeker:
=======

1 Fatal Frame. And a pretty tough one too. It only happens when he NEARLY hits
you with the torch. You could lure him to hit you then dodge then Fatal Frame
him. 99% of the time he will always wait for you to go to him so might as well
do that. :P

==============
Sickle Bearer:
==============

============
Pole Bearer:
============

1 Fatal Frame. When he bends down then raises his pole high into the air.

==============
Drowned Woman:
==============

1 Fatal Frame. She'll duck below and then disappear. If you see this happen, go
into viewfinder mode, aim low and keep walking backwards. She'll try to grab your
leg and voila, Fatal Frame time. If she's trying to grab you while floating,
the most you'll be getting is a Zero shot.

==============
Veiled Priest:
==============

2 Fatal Frames. First is when they are right about to whack you with their staff.
The other is when they are summoning floating skullballs.

============
The Mourner:
============

2 Fatal Frames. Pretty hard shooting him during his Fatal Frame mainly because
you need him to detect you and he will unfortunately run after you faster than
you can even walk backwards in viewfinder mode. After he detects you and is
about to grab, that's his Fatal Frame. Another Fatal Frame is when he stands
still afar, but I really can't tell any difference between his Zero and Fatal
Frame when he's just standing. His sure Zero is when he's turning around listening
to sounds.

==================
Broken Neck Woman:
==================

1 Fatal Frame. When close to you she'll bend down sideways then come up with Fatal
Frame opportunity while trying to grab you.

=====================
Children Playing Tag:
=====================

1 Fatal Frame. Right when they are about to grab you. There's also a Zero when they
call the others or are taunting you.

=============
Fallen Woman:
=============

2 Fatal Frames. First is when she's about to grab your legs (most of the time it
will be only Zero). The second is right where she lands from falling (she will
scream before falling).

=====================================
Akane Kiryu/Azami Kiryu (Twin Dolls):
=====================================

1 Fatal Frame. Hated by many. Actually very easy once you know their patterns. First
of all here's how to tell the difference between them.

-They have different voices. The fake has a more cheerful and clinky voice while the
real has a more quiet and dead voice (I play the japanese version so I don't know
about the US version). The one speaking will 80-100% be the one who is going to attack.

-When they attack. When you're ready to shoot, aim at them (well, the one who is
coming for you) and keep walking backwards (make sure to have space behind you). Both
will put their arms up trying to grab you but the difference is that the fake will
snap it's neck and the real will have the Fatal Frame moment.

-Real has a mouth (which you really can't tell until you try the method above this).

Watch out though. If you shoot the wrong one when it's about to grab you, most of the
time the real will come in quickly and try to get you from behind.

===========
Doll Maker:
===========

1 Fatal Frame. Usually after his doll attacks (when he puts dolls back down). Try luring
him near you (or you might as well go to him) and then he will try rushing in trying
to grab you. Fatal Frame time.

==================
Chitose Tachibana:
==================

2 Fatal Frames. She likes to teleport either behind you or to the side so it's easy to
lure her. Just run around until she appears then get into viewfinder mode. The first
Fatal Frame is when she is about to grab you (like most normal enemies). The second is
when she's sitting and looking up at you. Also watch out for her blind attack. She will
do it sometimes when she's sitting. If she screams, the most you can get off her before
the Blind takes place is a Zero shot. If you're aiming for time and she does Blind, might
as well restart.

=============
Mr. Kurosawa:
=============

2 Fatal Frames. First is the moment he rushes towards you and then turns his face into
a skull. You can lure him to rushing by running around in front of him. If he starts
speaking and pauses for a brief moment, go into viewfinder mode and start walking
backwards. Walk as far as you can because while he is rushing you can't shoot him until
he bends upwards while will take a little while. If you are too close when he rushes,
he will rush right through you making you take damage. Also, if you see him walking
sideways looking at you, he surely will rush. Just get near him to make him start
rushing. Second Fatal Frame is when he shoots our white fireballs. He usually does
them when below 50% health.

=======
Kusabi:
=======

2 Fatal Frames. Right when he's about to slap you silly (comes out randomly). The other
is when he's summoning(?). Going with the first Fatal Frame is a lot easier and more
time consuming since he will always try to hit you when you run near him.

=============
Sae Kurosawa:
=============

1 Fatal Frame. While she's speaking (without bloody mist), her Zero and Fatal Frame
opportunity will come. Go to the mission 25 section for more details.

Ghost(s): Children Playing Tag (4)

Note:
First of all, when you just start, put on 0 film then run into the room. This
is where you can easily see if you will be getting a SS or not. When the kids
appear, dodge those who are close to you (front or side of you when you're runnng
into room) and then shoot the last couple who are still running after you (behind
you). Always aim low when in viewfinder mode. If you're lucky 3 kids will be behind
you making you get a triple shot in less than 5 seconds! :D If you're even more
lucky all 4 could be at the correct position (but I wasn't ever lucky enough and
don't even know if there's more than a triple shot or not). As for the leftover
kid(s), if you're within range to shoot, going into viewfinder and it will autoturn
to them. Then just aim low and shoot. Doing this method could easily get you less
than 25 seconds (although I got 29 since the last kid was teleporting to hard to
shoot areas).

===========
Mission 22:
===========

Objective: Navigate Mayu to the end point in 4 minutes.
S rank objective:
SS rank Objective: Under 1 minute
Items: Type 14 film x 30, Type 0 film x 1, healing pill x 1.
Ghost(s): Veiled Priest/The Mourner

Note:
First of all, try to not make Mayu become scared and stand still. It may happen
sometimes. The goal to pass the mission is the book room puzzle room. You can
easily pass the first mourner and not kill him. Just go into viewfinder mode right
before walking through the curtain and facing him. Stunning him with a shot (orange)
is enough to run past him. When into room with stairs, keep running towards the 2nd
mourner until he detects you and shoot him with a red shot (Zero or 1 hit Fatal Frame
is enough). Go upstairs and either stun the 3rd mourner or kill him (stunning him
is easier). You need Mayu to be near the door in order to pass mission (you can
trying pushing her).

===========
Mission 23:
===========

Objective: Shoot 40,000+ points total.
S rank objective:
SS rank Objective:
Items: Type 14 film x 30, Type 0 film x 5, healing pill x 1.
Ghost(s): ?????????

Note:
Wow 40,000 points just to pass it and an SS rank? That's hard! Not. Only thing you
should worry about in this mission is your health and maybe your amount of film.
Keep doing Fatal Frame combos to earn 4 orbs (using 14 film) then use 0 film for
Crush (better to use on enemies who are already hit). Use Crush during Fatal Frame
oppurtunity even though they surely die by the 1st hit but you will get more points
than a Zero shot. If done correctly by the time you finish the mission your score
will be over 100,000.

===========
Mission 24:
===========

Objective: Defeat evil ghosts in 5 minutes.
S rank objective:
SS rank Objective:
Items: Type 14 film x 30, healing pill x 1.
Shost(s): Mr. Kurosawa, Vieled Priests (2)(optional)

Note:
Easy if done correctly. If he's standing still letting you get an orange shot on him,
shoot to get some spirit energy. If he rushes, do Fatal Frame Combo on him. When
shooting white energy balls, Fatal Frame combo him. When allowed to use Crush,
use it. When he summons 2 Vieled Priests, RESTART.

===========
Mission 25:
===========

Objective: Defeat Kurosawa Sae in 8 minutes.
S rank objective:
SS rank Objective: Under 3 minutes
Items: Type 14 film x 30, healing pill x 1.
Ghost(s): Sae Kurosawa/Kusabi

Note:
First of all, it will be easier if you know her patterns. Her patterns go by

1.Laughing 2 times (she will teleport and laugh again elsewhere if you run near her)
2.Walk towards you and try to strangle you 3 times
3.Stands and speak (no bloody mist around her)

While she's speaking, her Zero and fatal Frame opportunity will come.

If you really find The Kusabi annoying, try luring him to be with Sae during her
second laugh and when she starts walking after you, take double shots of them.
If done correctly, the screen telling you that you can't shoot Rope man will
appear and it will stun him while the shot stuns Sae as well getting you some
spirit orbs. Keep repeating until you're cornered or have 4 orbs ready (I would
choose to keep doing it until I get cornered even though I have 4 orbs already
since it keeps Rope man with Sae. When ready to combo, keep dodging Sae (while
dodging Kusabi as well) until Sae stands and speaks. Recommended combo (Crush,
normal, normal). Rinse and repeat until dead.
