Silent Hill 2 Cheats


  • Activate Mini Map

    First, complete the game with the Dog ending. Start a new game, then set the button config to type 2 in the options menu.

    The button combination needs to be input during normal play, immediately after exiting the inventory menu (i.e. while the screen is fading to black after exiting).

    While holding the Start button, hold L2, Square and L3 in that order. While holding these buttons down, tapping L3 will toggle different views on the mini map. Tapping L3 enough times will eventually switch the mini map off.

    Activate Mini MapStart + L2 + Square + L3

  • Easier Flamethrower and multiple game completions

    Before completing the game, make sure you save relatively close to the last boss (to save time), then complete the game as normal. Save the results after the end credits. Load the game you saved before the last boss and defeat it again. Even though you did not go through the game again fully, this counts as another game completion. This is an easy way to get the flamethrower if you did not get it the first time. It's also a quick way to raise the bullet multiplier in the extra options.

Silent Hill 4: The Room Cheats


  • Eileen's Glitch: Building World 2

    After you take Eileen to the elevator, select bottom floor from the panel. Go out the door here, and look for the Holy Candle in a corner. Take the Candle if you'd like, then get Eileen to follow you around to here. Push her into that corner, and make a fast break for the Elevator farthest away from this corner. Enter it as fast as you can. If Henry appears alone in the elevator, you\'ve done it. If not, go outside and try the whole process over again from pushing her into the corner until he does appear in there alone.

    When he finally shows up in the elevator alone, go down the ladder in here.On this screen, continue forward along the linear path until you trigger the two Walter cutscene. Then continue along to the next screen -- you should notice Eileen on the other side of the fence along the way. After this, go back to the previous screen. You should wait where you enter, and you'll eventually see Eileen running straight at you on the right side of the fence. Now you can continue along to the Bar where you can enter the door code, since you don\'t have to escort Eileen the long way.
