1. Introduction/Author Information

Madden online a lot during weekends. Jim Chapman is one of the best character 
to use in Outbreak File #2 so I decided to write a guide about him and enjoy 
and thanks for reading!

|| Kevin Ryman ||

|Basic Information\

- Occupation: Police Officer, Raccoon City Police Department (R.P.D.)

- Vitality: 2300 points

- Viral Infection Rate: 1.19% per minute, 84 minutes to 100%

- Personal Item: 45 Auto
A more powerful weapon than the usual handgun, but ammo for this weapon is 
scarce. Kevin's custom weapon gives him the advantage in boss fights, so 
reserve its usage until encountering a worthwhile foe.

- Extra Item: 45 Auto Magazine
An extra clip of ammunition for Kevin's personal 45 Auto. Hold the L1 button 
to quickly reload the 45 Auto. The magazine can be refilled by combining it 
with 45 Auto Rounds.

- Bio: Officer Ryman works for the Raccoon City Police Department. He 
possesses superior athletic abilities and is an outstanding shot. A all 
around good guy, he's a dyed-in-the-wool optimist who doesn't dwell on petty 
matters. His happy go lucky personality sometimes works against him. He has 
failed the S.T.A.R.S. selection process twice.

- Characteristics: Kevin is the fastest of all the characters, which is 
useful for hurrying through scenarios in the fastest possible time. His 
powerful custom 45 Auto and unique unarmed attacks make him an excellent 
character choice for beginning players and action oriented players alike.

|Special Actions\

- Kick
Hold the R1 button and press Cancel to execute a swift kick. Use it to knock 
enemies backward just as they are about to attack. When used properly, it 
creates enough room to aim a firearm or prepare a knife attack. The kick can 
also be used to kick down locked doors and open locked wall panels.

- Critical Shot
Hold the R1 button for a long moment while equipped with a Handgun or the 45 
Auto. Soon, Kevin will readjust his aim. If you wait to fire until after 
Kevin has readjusted, his aim is better and the resulting shot causes more 
damage to an enemy. This is not effective for rifles.

- Elbow Tackle
Hold the R1 button and press Circle when no weapon is equipped. Kevin lunges 
further and knocks down enemies more easily with this move than other player 
characters can accomplish with standard Tackle attacks.

|| Mark Wilkins ||

|Basic Information\

- Occupation: Security Guard

- Vitality: 3000 points

- Viral Infection Rate: 1.31% per minute, 76 minutes to 100%

- Personal Item: Costume Handgun
Mark's personal automatic is similar to the other handguns found commonly 
throughout the game. Although Mark's Custom Handgun inflicts slightly less 
damage per attack, the barrel has been modified to inflict more damage at 
longer range.

- Extra Item: Handgun Magazine
An extra clip for Mark's Handgun, this clip enables faster reloading. Hold 
the L1 button to quickly reload Mark's Handgun. The Handgun Magazine can be 
refilled by combining it with Handgun Rounds.

- Bio: Currently working for a security company in Raccoon City, Mark is a 
Vietnam veteran. Approximately 50 years old, his robust strength has not 
diminished. He has tasted the emptiness of war and now, more than anything, 
he just wants to live in peace. 

- Characteristics: Mark, who possesses the highest vitality points, is the 
strongest character in the game. On his own, he can move heavy objects that 
normally require two players to move. Due to his size he is the second 
slowest player character in the game, and he cannot hide inside lockers or 

|Special Actions\

- Guard
Hold the R1 button and press Cancel to guard against enemy attacks. Mark can 
fend off common attacks from most frequently encountered foes. However, his 
virus meter still increases due to the contact. Strong attacks from unique 
boss enemies may still cause damage to Mark even while he is guarding.

- Full Swing
Hold the R1 button while equipped with a melee weapon that swings, such as an 
Iron Pipe, Long Pole, or a Crutch. Continue holding the R1 button until Mark 
raises the melee weapon higher than usual. This indicates tat Mark is ready 
to perform a "full swing", causing more damage than the normal melee weapon 

|| Jim Chapman ||

|Basic Information\

- Occupation: Subway Transit System Employee

- Vitality: 1800 points

- Viral Infection Rate: 1.43% per minute, 70 minutes to 100%

- Personal Item: Coin
While hanging around a location that is free of enemies, select Jim's coin 
and use it. Jim produces his coin and flips it into the air. The result is 
displayed on screen. Each time the coin comes up "Heads", Jim's rate of 
critical hits increases 10%. Therefore, if you flip the coin three times in a 
row and achieve "Heads" each time, Jim's critical hit rate rises by 30%! 
However, if the coin comes up "Tails", the bonus is reset to 0%. Used wisely, 
the Coin can turn Jim into a real killing machine!

- Extra Item: Lucky Coin
When Jim or any character possesses this item, the chance of critical hit 
occurrence rises 5%, the durability of melee weapons becomes stronger, and 
Handguns and Shotguns cannot be broken by a Hunter's attack. AIPC Jim rarely 
agrees to trade this item for anything, and players controlling Jim should 
hold onto the Lucky Coin rather than drop it in favor of other items.

- Bio: An agent with the Raccoon City subway, Jim is friendly and cheerful 
but sometimes reveals a hesitant side. Although he means well, he talks too 
much and sometimes bothers people around him. To his credit, he has strong 
powers of intuition and is skillful at solving puzzles.

- Characteristics: Jim is an average person in a very unique situation. 
Guided by fear and cowardice, his greatest skill is his ability to avoid 
attacks by pretending to be dead. Although playing as Jim takes some getting 
used to, a keen player soon realizes that the subway worker presents great 
advantages as a character choice.

|Special Actions\

- Playing Dead
Hold the R1 button, the press and hold the X button. This causes Jim to fall 
to the ground and remain motionless. Enemies will ignore him while he is 
playing dead, so it is useful when surrounded. However, don't overuse this 
skill, as the virus gauge increases more rapidly while he plays dead. By the 
way, if an enemy lands on top of Jim or punched Jim on the ground, Jim can 
still get hurt so be careful!

- Swing Combo
Hold the R1 button and press Circle to swing a melee weapon such as an Iron 
Pipe, Long Pole or Crutch. Press Circle again the moment Jim finishes his 
first swing to immediately perform another. This special action leaves Jim 
breathless for a moment, so use it with caution.

- Item Search
Even when Jim enters a room for the first time, the positions of the items in 
the room are indicated on the map by a question mark. The type of item is not 
specified, however, until the item is examined. This unique feature enables 
Jim to find items faster than other characters, especially hidden or unseen 


4. Boss strategies for Jim


Wild Things Scenario   \

*Stalker as the boss:
- Every time he growls that means he is going to jump at you! What you do is 
simple just play dead until he leave you alone. After you are away from him 
just loaded some shotguns ammo to his side of the body. 
- DO NOT get close to him because he can turn around fast and slam you!

*Titan as the boss:
- Go back to the entrance you came from but do not go to the other area. This 
place is the safest place in the game. The elephant cannot get you here 
unless he uses his nose to reach you. Every time he does that just play dead 
until he stops. You are like in a small cage and he can't get you, which 
makes it easier even in VH games! All you do is just shoot him and play dead 
everytime he tries to attack you.

Underbelly Scenario    \

*Giga Bite boss:
- Not much to do here since Jim can avoid every attack that the insect boss 
has. Every time you see bunch of insects rolling like a tire all you have 
to do is just play dead to avoid it and get back up and continue attacking 
the boss. Beware you still can get hurt while playing dead!

Flashback Scenario     \

*The Axeman:
- Jim ability to play dead is very useful against this boss. He is not 
really the "main" boss in Flashback scenario. But if you see him coming at 
you, all you have to do is play dead until he goes away or if he starts 
chasing your friends.

*Huge Plant:
- Jim is not very good against this plant unless if you are Samuel. Why 
Samuel? Because Samuel got higher damage ratio than any other Jim types. You 
can play dead if you see the plants above your head try to grab you and choke 
you. Try to get at least 2 HEADS and grab an axe.

Desperate Times Scenario \

* Mob of Zombies:
- Jim is not good against this many zombies. I recommend you to use Samuel  
because he is stronger and better with guns. If there are more than 3 zombies 
coming at you, try to do the "worm" by playing dead. You can lead them to the 
gas tank and blow them off. You should choose your partners carefully.

End of The Road Scenario \

* Mr. X first form:
- There is not much you can do with him. All you do is just play dead if he 
comes near you. He is almost like Thantos from File 1 except he is much 
smarter, stronger and faster. 

* Mr. X second form:
- This one is much harder to fight against even if you are Mr. Green or 
Samuel. I recommend you to just ignore him and play dead until he ignores 
you. Do that if you don't have the remote control. Remote control can only 
use once so don't forget that and play dead if he did his 1 hit move!

* Nyx:
- You don't have to fight him unless the helicopter leaves you behind. You 
better wish that you have some magnums or other powerful weapons. You also 
need to have at least 1 rocket launcher too. Take the beast down to his knee 
by the rocket launcher. Try not to miss or you are in big trouble. If you 
missed, just check the van near the monster and you can find an extra rocket 
launcher. Let's think you didn't miss. After the beast is on his knee this is 
your chance to attack him. Wait until the core on his chest open up. If it 
didn't open up and he stand up you better have some "extra" weapons that can 
take him down. After his core opens up, attack it with all your weapons that 
you have. Good Luck!

8. Frequently Asked Question

much easier.

Q) What is the strongest NPCs that have Jim's type?
A) That would be Samuel

Q) Can Jim easily avoid the land mines in End Of The Road scenario?

A) To be unstoppable that would be Mr. Gold and The Axeman Costume

Q) Is it true that Jim's voice has changed?
A) Yes
