Defeating the "Big Cheese": In the early stages of the game, Leon is captured by the
"Big Cheese" (as Luis calls him) and his minions and gets infected
by the T-Virus. An intermission sequence then follows, opening in the room
where Leon was held after he became captured. He is tied up to Luis. After
the two talk for awhile, the "Big Cheese" sends in a villager with
an enormous axe. A button command happens and you will kill the villager if
performed correctly. Most of your encounters with this enemy involve using
simple button commands. However, the final battle between this enemy and
Leon involves a T-Virus parasite that comes out of the "Big
Cheese". To defeat this Boss easily, you will need two hand grenades
and two or more incendiary grenades. When the battle starts and the
"Big Cheese" is still ground-bound, use up both of your hand
grenades. This will be faster than shooting the Boss with any other
projectile-based weapon. Then, quickly throw another hand grenade at him as
he is recovering from the first one. After shooting the Boss at strategic
moments, an intermission sequence will start, involving the "Big
Cheese" having his legs blown off. He will cling to the rafters in the
Boss-fight-arena. Take out your incendiary grenades. Make sure that the Boss
is on the lowest level of rafters possible. Then, climb up the ladder that
leads to the second story of the arena. As you run around dodging the
"Big Cheese's" blows, throw an incendiary grenade at him as he is
swinging those massive tentacles located on his back. The grenade will hit
him and he will lose his grip on the rafters and fall to the ground. Now,
just as the first step using hand grenades, quickly throw another incendiary
grenade at him as he is recoiling. The next intermission sequence will
explain that you have defeated him, and you will receive the "False
Eyeball" item. .
After the "Big
Cheese" Boss' body has been torn in two and he is swinging from the
rafters after you, just shoot him at close range with the shotgun as he is
in the process of moving and has only one arm attached to the beam. He will
fall every time. However if you hit him while he is hanging with both arms
attached, it will not work.
Defeating El Gigante: Either weapon works; feel free to experiment. When the battle
starts, check out the shacks and get all of the items that you can. When he
gets close, run between his legs, get behind him, then open fire. When he is
approaching you, use the shotgun and keep shooting him in the head while
avoiding his attacks. When he roars and starts moving around, something will
pop out of his back. Before it kneels on the ground, get in close until the
action command that reads "Climb" appears. Use it to get on his
back. The screen will indicate which button to use to slash. Press that
button as fast as possible until you get off. Repeat the process one to
three more times to defeat him.
When facing the El Gigante, buy
a rocket launcher It will kill him in one hit instead of wasting your other
You will have to fight four El
Gigantes (the big monster that breaks through the door and picks up and
crushes Leon). You will fight one by yourself, one with the girl, and two at
the same time by yourself. The quickest way to kill them is to buy a rocket
launcher immediately before the fight so that you do not take waste space in
you inventory. Throw a flash grenade to stun him, then run around behind and
shoot him in the back. You will kill him in one hit. The same can also be
done on most of the Bosses. If this does not kill them, it will do a lot of
To win easily against the two
El Gigantes in Chapter 4-2, go up the ladder and go down the rope on the
other side of the room to activate the mechanism. It will open the circle in
the middle of the room and take an El Gigante into the lava. Do not try it a
second time; the mechanism will not work again. Just use the rocket launcher
to finish the remaining El Gigante.
To defeat the first El Gigante,
avoid him for about a minute or two so that the dog that you saved earlier
can help you. When the dog arrives, he will distract El Gigante. Take this
opportunity to get the ammunition inside the cabins. Once you get everything
in the cabins, shoot all of your shogun or TMP rounds at the El Gigante.
Once you have shot all of it, switch to the weapon that you did not use,
then shoot him until the virus in the back comes out. Then, shoot with all
of your remaining ammunition. Note: It is recommended that you shoot El
Gigante with the TMP first, then with the shotgun. The shotgun rounds do
The second time you fight El
Gigante, you will have Ashley. This is difficult, because if Ashley dies you
will fail your mission. Defeating El Gigante the second time is easier
because you have the big rock. Shoot the wood holding the rock when El
Gigante is roaring. If done correctly, the rock will hit El Gigante. Just
after the rock hits him, shoot El Gigante with a shotgun until the virus
comes out of the back. Quickly climb his back and start cutting the virus.
Cutting the virus this time is difficult, because the game switches knife
attack to A or B. Quickly, look at the button that is supposed
to be pressed and press it quickly until El Gigante recovers. Do the same
thing and you will kill him, allowing you to get the items in the cabin's
Avoid fighting El Gigante: Use the following trick to avoid fighting El Gigante the second
time. After you survive the raid, you must choose a path to open; left or
right. Open the right gate and it will take you to El Gigante. Use the
shotgun and make the boulder drop down on his head when he arrives. Then,
turn around and kick the door six times to knock the chains off it. If you
are still standing outside the door when you see Gigante approach you from
behind, do not panic; just get out of there quickly. He does not attack for
a few seconds after he comes up behind you. The knife or a gunshot may help
destroy the chains quicker, but kicking works. Go through another door in
the same fashion and somewhere along the way you should find a key. It may
be in one of the last huts you see toward the center. If you are quick
enough, you can escape El Gigante and make it through the door alive with
Use the following trick to
avoid fighting El Gigante with Ashley. After the cabin raid with Ashley and
Luis, you will be given a choice of two large doors. The left door will lead
to the Chainsaw Sisters fight, which is very difficult. The right door will
lead to a second El Gigante. Make sure that you have a rifle with a scope
before entering. If necessary, purchase it from the merchant nearby.
Immediately after you enter the right passage and appear on the other side,
equip you rifle and shoot the chains off of the wooden door across from you
from a distance. Then, equip a shotgun or a pistol. Walk forward and you
will see the intermission sequence of El Gigante appearing. Ashley will
point out a large boulder above your head. Shoot it, then run to the door
with the chains that you shot off. Kick it down and run to the second cabin
that you see. Note: Make sure that you are holding B to run; timing
is very important. In the second cabin, quickly get the key on the floor
immediately as you enter the doorway. Then, run to the next door and shoot
off those chains (a shotgun works best). Run to the final door and use the
Old Key that you found in the cabin. If you done fast enough, you should
escape El Gigante by a few seconds.
Defeating Gothic Illuminados: When you are in the castle and you fire at the Gothic
Illuminados, it is best to fire at their knees. They will fall on them and
allow you to use a suplex move instead of a kick. You will then throw them
over your head and smash their head in the ground. Note: In mercenary mode,
the same goes for the rest of the mercenaries.
Defeating Los Illuminados: Instead of firing at Los Illuminados when there parasite is
exposed, use a flash grenade to destroy the parasite instead of using your
Defeating Krauser: Krauser is the mean-looking Russian commando with the red beret.
The first encounter is nothing more than action commands. The second
encounter, you can kill him. For this battle, the weaponry you need is the
semi-auto rifle and the Broken Butterfly. These two should be maxed out,
with exclusives and everything else. If you are short on resources, worry
more about getting the Broken Butterfly's exclusive, as it really increases
the firepower. In the room where the long and hardest fight takes place,
just run to the edge, taking the contents of a barrel along the way. Jump
down the edge. Run across the corridor-like area until an intermission
sequence starts, Krauser will tell you where Ashley is (not really) and say
that you need three insignia to open the gate. He will say that one is in
the north and in the east, and that he has the last one. Then, he will show
his TMP. After that, the battle starts. Use the rifle to peg him in the
head, but be quick. When he shows himself, he does not leave a big window of
time to hit him. After about one or two shots he will engage close quarters.
The best thing to do is take out the magnum and hit him anywhere. One shot
and he will throw a flash grenade. From there, continue. There is a building
at the end of the first fight with Krauser in this battle. Ignore the
ladder. It is a waste of your time. Open the door and proceed. Turn the
corner to find Krauser again. Keep the magnum out. He will be on a building,
sniping you. Run toward the building. Use some caution when he starts with
the mine arrows. When you are close enough to the building he will jump down
and begin close quartering again. Hit him with the magnum. If you do not hit
him the first time he may get close enough to use his knife. Either back up
to avoid the hit, or (if becomes surreal and he tries to hit you multiple
times), enter the action commands as they appear to avoid a slash or a
deadly stab to the heart. After he throws another flash grenade, go to the
right of the building and walk along the side. It is a path to the next
fight with Krauser. This is also where you get the first insignia. In this
fight, Krauser will switch between sniping and close quartering. While he is
sniping, get under the roof he stands on and enter the action icons to avoid
the grenades. When he gets down, aim and shoot. It will be a little tricky
because the laser does not show up on Krauser, and you may need to wait
until he says, "Come on! Come out and fight like a man!" The
important thing is to shoot him. After he throws another flash grenade, a
statue will rise. Push it to the square on the other side of the broken
wall. This will open up two switches to be used; one to get out of the area
you are in and the other to carry on to the last fight. Flip the first
switch and go back down the path. When you get to the building, go around
the backside of it and go straight to the second switch. Be careful. Krauser
will be waiting for you around the corner, heading toward the switch. This
starts the second to last shuffle. Just shoot him with the magnum. Open the
door and jump down. You see that there are bombs around. Shoot them at a
safe distance. Proceed through this trench to the end, shooting any bombs or
flying turrets you encounter. Near the end of the path, Krauser will say
something and you will have the choice of responding. In the tower at the
end, climb the ladder. At the top you can go to the other tower and pick up
some ammo and an herb if desired; or collect the second insignia and start
the last fight. Krauser does not use his weapon anymore. However, his left
arm turns into a group of blades. The fight will commence with an action
command. You will dodge if you hit it correctly. You will hang on the edge
if you do not. If this happens, press A to get up. The weapon you use
is your choice. The magnum is recommended, as you only have three minutes to
kill him and get out of the room. This is where timing and aim counts the
most. The shooting order is as follows: feet, head. You can use the rifle to
get him down, but for the head shot, it is better to use the magnum. If done
correctly, you should kill him in a little over a half a minute. After he is
dead, go down the ladder, and through the newly opened gate. Jump down, put
in the insignia, and leave.
To easily defeat Krauser's
final form, when his arm is mutated just use your knife whenever his guard
is down. It is possible to defeat him in a little over a minute under the
pro difficulty setting by using this technique.
When fighting Krauser, instead
of wasting ammunition, use your knife. You should only have to hit him four
or five times before he dies.
Get the mine gun and the rocket
launcher first. During his final form, shoot him in the knee with a mine.
Immediately take out the rocket launcher and aim. Once the mine explodes,
shoot him with the rocket launcher and he will die.
When fighting Krauser and he
uses his blade arm, use a strong gun to hit his legs. When he is down, slash
him with your knife. Do this four times and he will die.
Defeating Saddler: Look at his legs. If you see an eyeball, shoot it until ypu can
see the eyeball in his mouth. Get near it and press Action. Do this
about three times, then go across the bridge and get the rocket launcher.
Shoot it at him. Then, go down, get the girl, and ride the jet ski.
The most effective way to win
this battle is to have the Mine Thrower and some grenades. Start the battle
by running past Saddler to the end platform and climb up the ladder. Wait
for Saddler to get close to where you are and throw the switch. This will
trigger steel beams to crash into him. Saddler will flop down on the ground.
Quickly jump off the platform and go near him. Press A to trigger
Leon to "climb up". Leon will stab his eye. You must stab Saddler
eight to nine times to defeat him. Quickly run across the bridge and get
ready to do an action command to jump when the bridge falls. As Leon grabs
on, repeatedly tap A to climb up. Be aware if Saddler has not jumped
over to where you are, he will throw steel beams and you will have to do
action commands to dodge them. Run to the end, and once again climb up the
ladder. Get ready to throw the switch and cause Saddler to fall and stab
him. There are now multiple ways to get him to flop down. A single grenade
is enough, as well as a Dart Mine. You can use these to get him to fall. You
get also take out the thermal scope for your sniper and target one of the
four eyes on his legs. Those are all good ways to get Leon to stab his eye.
Note: Stabbing Saddler's eye is the only way to damage him. Finally, when
you haved stab him enough (about eight to nine times) an intermission
sequence will appear, and Ada will throw a Rocket Launcher (Special) to you
to finish the job. Grab it across the bridge and make room for it in your
case. Point and shoot at Saddler, and the final battle intermission sequence
Defeating Salazar: Note: This trick requires the Basic Sniper Rifle fully upgraded
with the Exclusive Upgrade. Make a note of the dodge actions at various
times during this battle. Start off by running to the side of the platform
on the top. Quickly shoot the tentacle in front of you, making sure that you
dodge if needed. With the upgraded sniper, shoot the tentacle retracts with
one shot. Ignore Salazar's eye and other tentacles. Only focus on the
tentacle closest to you. After some point, Salazar himself will emerge from
the upper back of the monster. Use your sniper to pick him off. After you
get about two shots in, he will go back into hiding. By now that tentacle
should have returned. Shoot it once to take care of it for awhile. Repeat
the process of shooting Salazar and the tentacle, and the battle will cause
Leon to take little damage. If you run out of ammunition for the sniper
rifle, either drop down and look for more in the barrels (but be prepared to
fight the spider-like parasites or run pass them), or use your Punisher to
snipe Salazar and just dodge the tentacle.
When you are in the castle, you
may find a rocket launcher in the room where you must make a bridge to get
to the other side. Take the rocket launcher but do not use it. Wait for your
fight with Salazar to use it to end Chapter 4 easily. Immediately before the
Boss battle with Salazar, take the TMP, the rocket launcher, some herbs, and
a shotgun (Striker recommended, but the Riot Gun works). When you enter the
room, watch Salazar fuse with the monster, then get to work. Use the shotgun
or TMP on the tentacle to your left until it goes away. Grab the item that
is at the end then fire with the TMP until Salazar appears. Then, equip that
rocket launcher and fire for a one hit kill. Get the 30,000 or 50,000 Peseta
that he drops. This will pays for the rocket you used, and you will save
health for the next chapter. Once the Pesata is collected, go down into the
pit and pick up the remaining items. You can then leave and proceed to
You must have the Broken
Butterfly or Killer 7, and the striker or riot shotgun. When you run into
the room a sequence will begin. Make sure to have the shotgun (striker or
the riot) equipped. Do not use the pump action, as it slightly slow. Once
the sequence ends, shoot him in his left eye, which is the yellow one, until
another sequence starts, showing the true Salazar. As soon as you have
control of Leon, quickly equip the Magnum. Note: They should be upgraded in
power and firing speed. Shoot him repeatedly until he dies. It should take
around six or more shots, depending on your aim and the Magnum that you use.
All this should take no more than thirty seconds to a minute and a half if
you do not have the Magnum powered up. If you do not kill him with the first
attempt when it opens up, you may have to repeat the process.
Use the following trick to
defeat Salazar in under thirty seconds. You need the rocket launcher you
find in the gallery and a Broken Butterfly magnum (preferably with two
firepower upgrades). As soon as the fight starts, aim at his eye with the
Broken Butterfly. When his "shell" thing opens up to show the
midget, blast him with the rocket launcher.
Use the following trick to kill
Salazar when he combines himself with Verdugo. Go to the left corner of the
room. This will make you be immune to any attacks he basically tries to use.
When the giant mouth tries to eat you, it will not work. Shoot the tentacle
above you and the tentacle on the other side without moving. Red9 is the
most recommended gun to take out the tentacles. After they retract, quickly
take out your TMP or a rocket launcher and fire at the little blob, which is
Salazar. Sit there and shoot. Do not be afraid if the giant mouth reaches
for you. It will not kill you because it cannot reach you. Buy a Red9 and
upgrade it all the time, along with your TMP (stock for both).
Defeating Verdugo: To defeat Salazar's right-hand man (Verdugo) quickly, make sure
you have a rocket launcher. Then, tip over a freeze canister and shoot him
with a rocket to make him explode. You will get a Crown Jewel that fits into
a Royal Crown.
Defeating the lake monster: When you start, he is towing you and heading toward the pieces of
land in the middle. Steer to avoid them and harpoon him as soon as you can
afterwards (before it lets go). Next, aim a harpoon and throw it at any sign
of movement so that you will not be knocked off the boat. After awhile it
will go away, then charge at the boat.Throw as many harpoons at it as
possible before it reaches the boat. If you get knocked out, press A
until you get back in. Repeat this process until the intermission sequence
starts and the monster retreats.
Killing birds: Throw a flash grenade in the middle of a group of birds. All of
them will die instantly, leaving lots of gold. This also works with the
Granadas when their heads are transformed.
Defeating chainsaw men: When you meet a man with the chainsaw, shoot him with the shotgun
and incendiary grenades. You can also just use your handgun, but you will
probably get killed. Note: The shotgun is found in the building that is
diagonal from the tower.
Shoot the chainsaw man in the
head or stomach with a TMP. Make sure you have over 150 rounds of
ammunition, as the chainsaw men are strong and fat. They will not die easily
with less than 100 TMP rounds.
Bypass chainsaw man encounters: When you enter the town, kill everyone. When the second wave of
people arrives, also kill all of them. You can then go into the house and
they will not come out.
During the mine cart section of
Chapter 4-2, the mine car will stop and lots of enemies and two chainsaw men
will load into the stopped cars. To avoid most of this encounter, be in the
front car and immediately shoot the switch. The cars will start moving, and
you will have only have about four enemies to kill.
Defeating the chainsaw sisters: Soon after the farmhouse raid (where Louis helps you then
mysteriously dismisses himself from Leon and Ashley), you will reach a place
where you will find a merchant, a typewriter for saving, and in the
distance, a fortress containing two pathways. A lever is needed to open both
doors on either the left or right side. Depending on which side you choose,
the right door will take you to El Gigante and the left door will take you
to a frustrating battle between two mad chainsaw women. This battle can be
easy if you use the right tactics. As soon as you rid all the other zombies
from getting in your and Ashley's way, hide Ashley in one of the red
dumpsters located in the beginning of the path, or on the top of the
fortress. You will see a "battle ring" of some sort just below
you. Jump down and a brief intermission sequence will show you the two
zombie menaces with chainsaws. Instead of staying in the ring waiting to be
decapitated, use a flash grenade to stun all the other distracting zombies,
including the two chainsaw sisters. If you do not have any grenades of some
sort, quickly run to the nearest ladder. While they are stunned, run to the
nearest ladder and climb it. Run to the farthest place where there is a lot
of space. This tactic also gives you time to reload or prepare for the swarm
of zombies coming after you. Shortly afterwards, when the zombie crowd
reaches you, throw a grenade at them, or shoot them. When you see the
chainsaw sisters, shoot them first, as they are much faster and can do more
damage. It takes a lot to kill them, but they do fall to their knees or flat
on their back when shot with a rifle or shotgun. You will know if you have
killed a chainsaw sister when a colored beam glows from her body. One of the
sisters has an item on her, while the other contains a Camp Key. If this
technique does not work the first time, keep trying--it is better than being
mauled in a ring full of zombies.
Note: This will only work if
you have at least 30,000 Pestas. An easier way to defeat the chainsaw
sisters is to buy a rocket launcher. Do not use it until you are in the
arena-like area. Take out your rocket launcher before you go down the
ladder. The chainsaw women will come out, accompanied by some other people
and go after you. Aim at the nearest one and shoot her. When you do, Leon
will duck down and flame will go everywhere. If done at the correct moment,
both of them should be dead. Only two or three people will be remaining.
Take them out and continue.
Defeating the prison Boss: When inside the castle, an obstacle blocks your path (two fire
breathing statues) To shut it off, you must enter the prison (the key is on
a painting near the obstacle). When you go into the prison, equip either the
TMP or shotgun and tell Ashley to wait atop the stairs. After the
intermission sequence showing what the boss looks like, kick down the cell
door and get close to the switch to initiate the battle. If you go up the
stairs to try to escape, the door will shut. Try walking as much as
possible, as he is sensitive to sound. You can use the bells at each end of
the prison by shooting at them, but they can only be used once. Stay close
to walls so that he gets stuck when he tries to attack you. Do your best to
avoid his attacks, as they take much damage and there is only one Green Herb
in the area. His only weakness is the spider thing on his back. When he is
stuck in a wall, concentrate all of your firepower on the the weak point
until he recuperates. After awhile, he will let his guard down and walk
around. This is when he is most vulnerable, besides when he is stuck in a
wall. Repeat this as many times as needed to kill him. When you put Ashley
atop the steps, she is out of harm's way.
Make sure that he is closer to
the bell than he is to you. Shoot it with your handgun. If he is closer to
you, he hears the gunshot. Then, switch to the rifle and aim just in front
of the bell. If you aimed well and timed your shot correctly, you can shoot
him in the back before he destroys the bell.
Whenever you first open the
gate to the prison, run out to the opposite wall. Turn your back to the wall
and remain still. If you do not move, the prison Boss cannot hear you. He
will eventually walk around with his claws shortened. When he retracts his
claws, wait for him to turn his back to you. Whenever you have a clear shot,
shoot the small creature on his back with your most powerful weapon (besides
grenades). He should turn and run after you. He will extend his claws and
try to stab you. However, because you are up against the wall, you can
easily side-step him and he will get his claws stuck in the wall. You must
time when you side-step precisely. Whenever he gets his claws stuck in the
wall, run to the opposite wall and turn your back to it. Remain still and he
will eventually retract his claws again. After that, just keep repeating. It
may take as many as five to ten times to kill him. Also, you should use the
bells on the walls to your advantage. They can only be used once, but they
are a good way to get his back exposed. However, make sure that the Boss is
closer to the bells than to you are, as he will hear the gunshot rather than
the bell if he is nearby. If you use this method, you should not take any
hits or waste much ammunition.
Stand at the opposite wall.
Make sure you are directly next to one of the bells. When he turns around,
shoot him on the spider on the back as many times as possible. After he
recovers he will run towards you and try to kill you. If you move at correct
moment, he will get stuck in the wall next to the bell. Shoot him in the
back again and wait until he recovers before he charges at you. Shoot the
bell. He should get stuck. Shoot him with your Punisher or handgun. Do this
three or four times. During the third time you do this, shoot him with a
shotgun and he will die. If not, keep doing it again until he is finally
Defeating the Enemy Regenerator and Iron Maiden: You do not need a special scope to kill them. Buy the Killer 7
Magnum and use it on them. After three or four shots, they will go down.
Shoot it in the sheet until there is a hole. Then, shoot its head. After
that, the body will explode then the legs will fall over and leave 5,000
Another way to kill the
Regenerator creatures is to shoot their head or chest with the shotgun.
Then, blast a leg away. It will fall on the ground. Then, take out an
incinerator grenade (the red ones) and let him have it. If done correctly,
he will burn on the ground and die.
Defeating dogs: The zombie dogs are brown colored. You will find one in the
beginning. The zombie dogs will not attack you until you meet the "Big
Cheese", as Leon calls him. The dogs will have parasites sticking out
of them after chapter 3. A shotgun will kill them easily. Note: Do not kill
the white dog in the trap. It will help you fight the ogre Boss.
You can shoot the white dog in
the head and it will be released from its trap and run away. It will still
helped in the Gigante fight. Note: A stronger gun might kill it.
Defeating flying insects: If you are able to hit the flying insect enemies in the cave area
while they are airborne, they will die in just one hit. Any weapon works,
though the shotgun is recommended. This will help conserve your ammunition.
If they manage to land, you will use about three to four shogun rounds from
a Stock Striker (firepower 6.0).
Defeating the armored opponents: Try not to get surrounded by them. Make sure they are in a group.
Take out whatever rifle you have and shoot them all in the head until the
snake thing appears. Wait until they are all like, then throw a flash
grenade to kill all of them at once. This works well on all of them, and
Defeating human zombies: If you are low on ammunition, try to avoid these enemies. The
zombies have orange eyes. When killed, the parasite in them will come out of
their heads. Stay away from it and shoot it from a distance. If you are too
close, the parasite will cut your head off.
Defeating evil cult members: When you fighting the evil cult at anytime, shoot their legs and
bring them their knees. Leon will do a suplex instead of a kick. It is very
Defeating enemies on bridges: If you are on a bridge and there are open areas, take out a weak
gun. One shot will make them fall off the bridge. However, you will not get
any items from them.
Defeating villagers with torches: Some villagers have torches. If those villagers come close to
you, they can do two things. If they hit you with the torch, shoot their
head or take a step back. If they will blow on the torch and try to burn
you, shoot at their body and they will burn themselves.
Cabin: Extra ammunition: When in the cabin with Luis fighting the Ganados coming through
the windows, stand by Luis for a few minutes. He will eventually start
throwing handgun ammunition to you. He will continue doing this until he
tells you to go upstairs.
Cabin: Surviving: When in the cabin with Luis, push one of the bookshelves over one
window. This will leave you one you do not need to worry about until it
breaks. Wait until the bookshelf that was moved breaks and all the villagers
standing there come through. Do not stay and fight. Go halfway up the stairs
and kill any that are coming up. Allow Louis do all the fighting downstairs(
he has unlimited health ). When your starting to become overwhelmed on the
stairs, go all the way up. When Luis gets upstairs, throw an incinerating
grenade at the steps only when the swarm of villagers are near the top. This
will set a mass of villagers aflame. Some villagers will start coming
through the windows. -- knock down the ladders. If you see one approaching
the window, shoot him and he will fall to his death. Make sure that you have
a shotgun to deal with the villagers that have the viruses in their head. If
all goes well and you balance your combat with the ones coming through the
windows and those coming upstairs, you will win.
Cabin: Two paths: During the game you will get ambushed by a lot of villagers and
be forced to hide in a cabin. Block as many doors and windows as possible,
then go by the stairs and equip the shotgun. Zombies will eventually find
their way in. Blast away. Do not worry about your partner, as he can take
care of himself. If things get too rough, go upstairs and take out the
zombies. When things start getting too hot, the zombies will back off. When
you exit and pull the lever, you will have a choice to make. The left way
takes you to the Chainsaw Sisters. The right way takes you to a giant
zombie. When you take the left way you will be in a mine. Hide Ashley in an
iron box near by. When you get down to the lower level, the Chainsaw Sisters
will appear. Go head back to the entrance and fire at them with the shotgun.
When they are dead, pick up the ruby and the Camp Key. If you chose to go to
the right, you will encounter a huge zombie. Drop a bolder on him then run
and shoot the chains off the door and get the Old Key. Drop another bolder
on the zombie to stun him. You cannot stash Ashley on this level. Make sure
that she gets first aid. When the parasite appears, slice it off.
Castle: Broken Butterfly: When you are in the area where you are just about see the
intermission sequence with Luis dying, there will be a door that lets you
know that you will need another person for it. After you get Ashley back,
return to this door. Give Ashley a piggyback and she will open the door.
Inside will be a lot of treasure, and the powerful Broken Butterfly. You do
not have to buy it from the merchant or sell it for money.
Note: The strongest Magnum is
not the Killer 7. When you tune up and buy the exclusive option of the
Broken Butterfly its power will increase to 50.0, far stronger than the
Killer 7's 35.0. You can kill a Boss in four shots.
Castle: Easy money: Look behind every painting of Saddler to find 5,000 Pesetas.
Castle: Flying insect nest: If you are in the castle and have passed the sequence where
spikes come down to you, shoot the red lights. After that, you will be in a
big room with a giant flying insects nest. A sequence will begin where one
flying insect captures Ashley from you. In the middle of the room hangs a
big nest of them. Shoot the nest with two magnum bullets. A sequence with
the nest will falling down will begin. Pick up the items that sparkle on the
ground and sell them for a big price to the merchant.
Church: Getting the Green Catseye: In Chapter 1-3 in the church, turn right. Go to the small path at
the back of the church. You will see a blinking object. Get near it, then
press A to check. After that, first rotate seven times using option
3, another five times using option 4, then one more time with option 3. You
will hear a sound and can now get the Green Catseye.
Church: Unlimited villagers: When you first get to the church, defeat everyone in the area.
Then, return to the church and shoot the bell above. Villagers will arrive
in a groups of three to six Gonados. You can continue this process as you
Church: Getting items: After you get the key after being choked by Chief Mendez, gi to
the church and kill everyone. You can then shoot the bell above the church.
You should hear "There! He is there!" and a group of Gonados
should be in the graveyard. This process can be repeated five times or less,
but they drop items for your inventory.
Church: Revenge: After you rescue Ashley from the church and the intermission
sequence where two Goth Gonados fire upon you, you can go back inside and
Farmhouse: Surviving the raid: An intermission sequence will start when you are escorting Ashley
across a bridge. A large crowd shows up and you will run into a farmhouse.
After the sequence ends and you are inside the house with Lou, push the
bookcases in front of the windows and go to the bottom of the staircase.
Using the shotgun is recommended, but the pistol works fine. Once they are
able to gain entrance to the house, aim high and fire until they are all
knocked down. Then, reload and repeat until Lou tells you to head up stairs.
When you do this, go over to the windows and knock down the ladders. After
that is done, go to the edge of the stairs and kill everyone that is coming
up Grenades work the best for this. After they are taken care of, rush back
to the windows and knock down the ladders once again. Repeat this until the
sequence plays when they retreat.
Once in the farmhouse, collect
all the items while pushing the shelves against the windows. Stand in the
corner by the stairs with Luis and fire until he tells you to go upstairs.
Once up, stand in northwest corner (when facing down the stairs), and
concentrate on firing in the direction of the stairs and pushing down the
two ladders in that corner so that you do not become surrounded.
Because the raid continues
until you kill a certain number, block two windows and shoot out the third
until the enemies break in. Then, block the third window and deal with the
other two. This allows you to get several kills in before it starts getting
Sewer: Black Bass recovery: You can kill the fish and use them as recovery items in the sewer
area shortly after the beginning of Chapter 1-2. It is a little after the
place where you face the two enemies who throw dynamite at you.
Mercenaries mini-game: Village: Easy completion: Go to the top of the barn (located next to the house where you
found the shotgun in the main game). There is also a timer under the ladder,
and a chest above, and up the ladder. Go up there and wait for the Los
Illuminados to come to you. When they are mostly packed in, shoot the barrel
inside and jump down quickly. Get what they dropped. Get back up the ladder
and repeat. Note: Do not throw a grenade while there is a flame barrel down
there; it will not do twice the damage. Also, be careful of the Chainsaw
Hags that appear. They will cut off your head if you get too close. It is
best if you are Hunk or Krauser to use the neck break; and the
transformation of Krauser's arm, which kills them in one hit. With Ada or
Wesker, use their sniper rifles until they are both gone, then jump down,
With Leon try grenades, but it is very difficult.
Chapter 2-1 puzzle: Before the end of the chapter, there is a puzzle in the church.
The puzzle is a simple mix of colors. Three different designs surround the
main design. The colors are red, green, and blue. When you enter the church,
turn to the left and go down the little hall. Climb the ladder. When you are
up there, you will see that the way to the door is barred. You must get to
the other side of the church by jumping on and off of the chandelier. On the
other side, there is a set of switches. When you activate it, the puzzle
starts. The goal is to turn the designs so when combined, they are the same
as the middle design. Turn red twice, green three times, and blue once. When
combined, it should create the design. Then, go in and grab Ashley.
Chapter 2-2: Ashley hiding: When you reach the farm, there will be a metal crane at the
entrance. You can tell Ashley to hide by pressing X in front of the
Chapter 3-4 puzzle: The quickest way to complete the puzzle as Ashley in 3-4 is as
follows. The layout of the puzzle's squares is referred as:
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
Press A on the following
in this order: 4, 7, 8, 9, 6, 3, 1, 7, 9.
Easy kills: After you kill the hatchet guy as soon as you start the game, go
upstairs to the window. Do not jump out. Instead, take out your pistol and
shoot the glass out. Then, carefully aim for the villagers' heads that are
awaiting outside. There are three of them. If you kill all three, you can
jump out and avoid any damage.
Two routes: Soon after the farmhouse, look around to collect some ammunition
and buy more items. After that, go to an opening where you see a lever. Go
up to it and switch it to the right to fight El Gigante (recommended) or
switch it to the left to face more chainsaw wielding villagers (extremely
difficult). If you select to fight El Gigante, aim at the rock at the top
ledge until he is underneath it and fire. Use the same tactic on the one you
dealt with earlier.
Destroying the insect nest: In the area where Ashley is carried away by the flying insects,
you can destroy the nest that is hanging from the ceiling. After it is
destroyed, you will find a lot of green and red eyes, and if you are lucky,
even a blue one. This is a good way to get the Butterfly Lamp filled with
all three jewels early so that you can get some extra money for upgrades.
Easy money: Once you gain access to the tunnel with the merchant beyond
Pueblo, return to the farm area and wait for the chickens there to lay eggs.
Exit and re-enter to begin the same process over again. After you fill your
inventory, you can return to the nearby merchant to sell your eggs. White
chicken eggs sell for 300 Pesetas, brown eggs for 600 Pesetas, and golden
eggs for 3,000 Pesetas.
Secret treasures: If you want the secret treasures in the areas, go to the merchant
and buy the treasure map. Check the map. The treasures will displayed as a
star. If you cannot see them while you are standing by an star, check around
and look for something sparkling. Then, shoot it and grab your treasure.
Quick money or more health: If you mix a Green, Red, and Yellow Herb, you can sell it for a
lot of money, or use it to restore health and increase the maximum health.
Use it when you are low on health so that you do not waste the health
recovery from it.
Pearl Pendant: When first starting the game, shoot the pendant (above the smelly
well) and tap A repeatedly. You will grab it before it lands in the
water. This boosts the selling price to 10,000 Pesetas.
Close to the start of the game
there is a pendant with a value that will decrease by 9,000 Pesetas, if
dropped in water. To keep it as the Pearl Pendant instead of the Brass
Pocketwatch, shoot the block that is holding the well open, then shoot the
pendant down to pick it up off the top of the well cover. It will sell for
Snake eggs: If you see a snake after smashing boxes, kill it. You will get a
chicken egg for health. Note: If you do not kill the snake it will bite you
and take health away.
Golden egg: At the beginning of the game, if you leave a hen alone in Pueblo
they should lay at least one golden egg. Go to the weapon/health screen and
select the egg. It should allow you to equip the egg. At the screen, Leon
will throw the egg up and down, looking smug.
The golden egg is the best
healing item, as it gives you a full heal and only takes one space in your
Eggs for Ashley: There are three types of eggs, white, brown, and golden. Collect
these, equip them, and fire on Ashley. They will not harm her and it is
funny. Aim from a distance to get used to them. They are lighter than a
grenade and fly far when thrown. Note: She will duck when in close
Throwing eggs:: Whenever you kill a snake, a chicken egg will be your reward.
Move the pointer on to a white chicken egg, and there will be an
"Equip" option. When you equip the egg, Leon is shown on the
inventory screen tossing the egg up into the air and then catching it.
Furthermore, if you exit the screen and continue playing, Leon will throw
the egg if you press R then A, as per the protocol of aiming
his firearm. The egg will fly very far and will not affect anyone.
Valuable jewels: When around the village stage, some trees will have bird nests.
Shoot them down to get valuable jewels to sell to the merchant.
Crown Jewels: Kill Salazar's "right hand" that you need to use the
liquid nitrogen tanks on to receive the "Crown Jewels". which fit
into the "Crown" treasure item. This is difficult; try using the
Crowd control with TMP: Shoot out the legs of everyone, then unload on their heads while
they are lying on their faces.
Killing the merchant: You can kill the merchant at any time in the game. Under the
normal difficulty setting, he just dies then comes back at the next place,
or when you leave the room and come back in. However, under the professional
difficulty setting, once he dies, he remains dead. When you see the merchant
and his eyes are glowing red, you can take the mine thrower and shoot a
couple of darts. Most of the time he will turn into a blood stain on the
Sell the rocket launcher (special) to the merchant: This trick involves the unlimited rocket launcher (costs one
million Pesetas completing the game. When you fight Saddler and Ada throws
you the rocket launcher (special), take it, but do not use it. When you can
get a clear shot to his main eye, use the regular unlimited launcher.
Saddler will be killed and the rocket launcher (special) will be yours to
keep. When you start a new game, you can sell it to the merchant.
Selling items: If you plan to sell two or more herbs or other items that can be
combined, combine them first and do not sell them separately. This will
result in a small boost in the total selling price when compared to what it
would have been if you sold them separately.
More items: When running around different areas of the village, you will see
crows. Pick them off from a distance as to not scare the others away. They
usually drop Pesetas. Note: If you scare some away, just re-enter the area
to reset their position.
Avoid damage from traps: To avoid getting hurt by traps such as explosives and bear traps,
use your laser sight and shoot at the explosive or the middle of the trap.
Aim faster: Use the D-pad and Analog-stick together to aim
faster than normal.
Open doors faster: Tap A(2) when the "Open" action appears to kick
open or down some doors instead of nudging them by hand. This will give you
an advantage, as any enemies behind the door will be sent flying back.
Opening locks: There are many locks on doors. Instead of shooting the locks and
wasting ammunition, pull out your knife and cut it off. The same can be done
Finding items: To find items, smash all of the crates with either your knife or
Extra ammunition: Wait until you are low on ammunition before upgrading a gun. The
replacement gun will always have a full clip, giving you extra bullets that
otherwise may be difficult to find.
Annoy Ashley: When Ashley is on a cliff or still up a ladder, you can aim your
gun up at her. She will grab her skirt and call you a pervert.
Extra scene: When Leon is being choked, he will be told that he has the same
blood. Leave the room, then return. You will be choked again by same person,
only this time Ada comes to the rescue.
See Ada Wong early: When you are walking in the room in the village, you will see an
intermission sequence where the chief chokes Leon, but then lets him live
because he has the same blood as them. After it ends, go back in the same
room where he just choked you. He will pop out from behind and step on you.
Then, he gets shot with two bullets. When he turns around, Ada is at the
window in a black costume, and she escapes quickly. Note: The middle of the
castle level is where you actually meet her for the first time.
Saddler comment: Listen closely when you kill the villagers. Some of them will say
"Lord Saddler" as they reach out just before they die. Note: This
may only happen after completion of the game.
Assignment Ada: Defeating Krauser: To complete Assignment Ada you need five times which look like
little containers. Once you have four you will encounter Krauser. He will
jump down and attack you. Defeat him using the same tactics used during the
last battle of Krauser with Leon. Krauser will keep coming back for more.
Stab and shoot him with a shotgun. Go back through the last door and use the
sniper rifle to shoot Krauser's legs and expose his head. Then, shoot his
head and repeat the process until he fires a flash grenade. Pick up the
container. You can now purchase the Tommy Gun from the merchant for one
Mercenaries mini-game: The main monsters to look out for are the two chainsaw ladies on
stage 1. Once you kill them, they keep coming back. On stage 2 and 3 be
careful of the guys with the chain guns. On stage 4, there is a super
chainsaw man. He is bigger than the normal one and has a twin bladed saw. He
is almost impossible to stop. He does not climb ladders. He jumps to where
he needs to be. He will run at you, swinging the saw. Do not run past him.
Turn and jump down if you can, or climb something quickly. If you really
want to get past him, try using Jack Krauser's transformation, and aim right
at him. If you miss, you are dead.
Krauser's transformation will
kill anyone in one hit as long as you are close enough. Also Flash Bang,
Kick are very good for crowds with Krauser. These two things will make
Krauser the easiest to get five stars with.
Mercenaries mini-game: WaterWorld: Defeating the twin chainsaw maniacs:
As Leon, first off look and
know exactly where the large tower is located with the very long ladder
and the two shorter ones. When you start to hear a chainsaw twin, try to
get eye contact with him first to know where he is. Next, run towards the
tower and do not worry about any other Ganados. Run to the shorter two
ladder and start climbing the first ladder. Run all the way to the end of
the floor and jump down to where the time extend is found. Run away from
the ladders and wait for the twin to jump down. If he does not (usually
when you are too far away from the ladders), try moving backwards and
forwards towards the ladders and away from them. Once you see the twin
jump down, use your shotgun and shoot for the legs. If done correctly, he
will get stunned for a moment for every shot you hit him with. This gives
you the chance to keep shooting without worrying about him coming at you.
If he for some reason turns around and comes at you, turn, jump down, and
try again. You can also use grenades to knock him down, but it is a lot
easier to just shoot him in the legs.
Ada is one of the easiest
characters to use against the twins. Do the same thing as in the Leon
strategy, except instead of a shotgun, use the sniper rifle. Aim for the
legs and he will always fall down. Shoot him while he is down. Then, wait
for him to get up.
Jack is another easy
character to work with. Use your mutant power on him. One shot and he is
dead. If you are having trouble because of the Ganados, use a flash
grenade. Note: If you go to the tower you will get very little Ganados
Hunk is the most difficult
character to use. Do the same thing as in the Leon strategy, only this
time use grenades on the twins (as his gun is useless against them). Try
to knock them down and go all out with his TMP.
Wesker uses the exact same
strategy as Ada. Although the Magnum may appear the best weapon to use,
its slow reload and lack of bullets limits this. Try using the sniper and
watch him fall and die in four or five shots.
Interesting death sequences: Note: Save before each encounter before trying to see the
following death scenes.
"It" has three ways of killing Leon. The first is when he is on
the roof. He will grab Leon and snap his neck. Another is when he has the
scissors tail. He will grab Leon by the legs and cut him in half. The
finwl way happens after the three cages fall and the final fight on the
cliff side begins. Shoot him until he goes underground. Allow him to kill
you when he pops from under you.
Betrayal: When you are in the
cabin surrounded by Ganados, shoot Luis Sera about five to eight times. An
intermission sequence will begin.
Chief Mendez: In the barn
fight, do not evade his grab in the intermission sequence.
Crocodile: After getting
knocked out of the boat, swim back until you are just in reach of the
boat. The crocodile will appear from underneath.
Crocodile: When killed, do
not cut the rope.
Crocodile: Immediately before
you fight the crocodile, stand on the dock near by the boat (the one
exactly before the Boss fight). Shoot the fish in the water. The crocodile
will come up and eat Leon.
Del Lago: Stand on the dock
by the lake where you fight the giant alligator (Del Lago). Fire your
shotgun into the water several times. Eventually, Del Lago will come out
and eat you.
Luis Seras: When in the house
with Luis Seras, keep shooting Luis. Eventually an intermission sequence
will show Luis shooting Leon twice, then Leon will fall to the floor and
Giant insects: Let them vomit
Knife fight: At the end, let
him press the knife through the cavity.
Molotov cocktails: In the
beginning of the game, go up the ladder into the tower and wait the
villagers want to burn you alive.
Prison Boss: Have low life
and let him kill you with the first hit of his charge. He should impale
Regenerators: Both normal and
spiked varieties have their own style of killing Leon.
Trap door floor: Salazaar
will enjoy sending the spikes impaling Scott Kennedy.
Two Los Gigantos: In the
magma floor/pool, activate the switch and stand next to the pool.
Wolves: When they jump on
you, they will ravage your face. Once Leon is killed, look at their teeth.
completing the game once, play the Mercenaries game. Go to the water level
and run around until you meet a man with a double chainsaw. Stand near him
and your head will be cut clean off.
Before you face the lake
monster, go to the top end of the dock where the boat is located. Fire
your weapon of choice into the water.
Hidden intermission sequence: After defeating Del Lago (crocodile), after the intermission
sequence, go back across the lake where you got the boat. Head up the trail.
An intermission sequence should begin. Leon will be surrounded by wolves.
Note: You can also go back that way and fight El Gigante, but you must go
all the way back to get the Insignia for the church.
03 reference: In the Mercenaries mini-game, play as John Krauser or Hunk.
Notice that both of the character's theme songs are from P.N. 03
Look up Ashley's skirt without her stopping you: Normally, if you jump down a ladder and try to look up Ashley's
skirt, she will grab it and call you a pervert. However, there is a location
where she does not do this. In Chapter 2-3, go to the lifts, after going
down one of the paths. Climb onto one and go all the way down to the other
side, shooting the Gonadas coming up on other lifts and the ones on the
platforms. Once you get all the way down, go down the stairs nearby. Go to
the cave that is here that has window-like holes. Be careful, as there are
two dynamite wielding Gonadas at the entrance. Kill them then jump over the
wall and go up the ladder. Kill the Gonada. Jump down, but leave Ashely up
there. Try looking up her skirt with a sniper. She will not grab her skirt
and call you a pervert because she is too high up. Note: There are more
ladders where you can do this. Find one with a large drop and it should
work. For example, if you have already gotten past Chapter 2-3, you can do
this trick on the ladder you go down just after defeat Saddler in the final
After you defeat Ramon Salazar,
walk further and there will be an intermission sequence where Ada will ask
Leon if he needs a ride, and he accepts. When Ada brings him to the island,
she will hook a rope onto the top of a cliff and say" I have some
business to take care of". While she is saying that, look at her skirt
(especially when she goes to jump up).
You can also see more of Ashley
than usual when you jump out the window of the church and when you get on
the jet ski.
In Chapter 3-4 when you dodge
an attack from a suit of armor, look between her legs. You will see her
underwear, which is black.
Leon's X-ray vision: After you unlock Leon's special costume, complete Chapter 1-3. In
the intermission sequence after the game prompts you to save, Leon will have
a strange dream that the egg hatched and is taking over his body. One part
shows it taking over his arm, but the secondary costume prevents Leon from
looking at his skin. Leon still acts as though he can see it, and the
intermission sequence plays through normally after that.
Colorblind Leon: When you are going through the game in Leon's special costume,
both Ada and Ashley will also get a special costume. At the beginning of
Chapter 1-3, you can go back into the room where you found the insignia key
to be bothered by the leader of the village again. After the intermission
sequence where Ada saves you, go to the window. Press A and Leon will
say, "Lady in red... somewhat so familiar". However, Ada's special
costume is completely black.
Colorblind Krauser: If you have the special costume set on, in the scene where Leon
and Krauser have a knife, at the end Ada Wong will show up and Krauser will
say "If it isn't the * in the red dress". This is a glitch because
Ada is wearing black clothes.
