to your apartment. If done correctly the game will actually end
there with a new ending sequence.

the game once before.
Extra interactive scenes
To get extra scenes while playing the game, have at
least one finished saved game file from Silent Hill 2.
New interactions with some objects and new scenes will now be
available. These scenes are similar or with some type of reference
to the previous game. For example, Heather trying to look for
something stuck into the toilet in the mall.
After completing Silent Hill 2, the presence of its saved game files during Silent Hill 3 will cause flashbacks. The flashback locations are:
- When you examine the second stall in the 1F ladies room in the mall.
- When you examine the mail boxes across from Daisy Villa Apartments.
- When you examine the poster at Heaven's Night Bar.
- When you examine the small section of fence on the north side of the Brookhaven Hospital's Roof Area.
There are multiple areas in the game where special death scenes occur for your character if you trigger them.
- In the hospital, allow yourself to be killed by the nurses. The screen will go black, and then it will show Heather lying on the ground, as a male doctor zombie shambles up, grabs and widely spreads her legs, and drags her off into the darkness.
- At the final area, after Claudia kills Vincent and the exchange between Heather and Claudia ensues, equip a weapon and attack Claudia with it. Heather will then begin to bleed out and birth the "God". This is not really an ending, as it counts as a "Game Over", but is a gruesome ending nonetheless.
- While in the subway, hop down onto the tracks and run all the way to the end of them, into the tunnel. Heather will be run over by the train, accompanied by nauseating sound effects.
- When on the train, simply turn around and exit through the door in the rear of any car. Heather will be on the very end of the train. If you move forward towards the edge, a first-person cut scene will occur in which Heather falls from the train onto the tracks, and dies.
There are other death scenes located in specific areas throughout the game. Look for areas that seem significant (locations from previous games, for instance) and allow yourself to be killed.

Brookhaven Hospital: Perfume item
In the hospital level in Hard or Normal mode, you can obtain a perfume item in the same locker as the nail polish remover. The only use the perfume has is that it attracts monsters to you when you equipped. It is only useful if you are trying to get a high score by killing as many enemies as possible.
Shopping Mall: Get Past the bats/moths in Hard mode
In Hard mode, you will encounter some bats/moths that block your path. Go back out to the hallway and look at the fan. There is a switch which you can use. Use it to turn off the fan, then go back into the hallway with the bats/moths. Use the pail to mix the detergent and bleach found elsewhere in the mall, then turn the fans back on to get rid of the poisonous gas that is created by mixing the two.
Subway: Vengeful ghost
When initially reaching the subway station, look for a cluster of vending machines for coins and tickets. On top of one of those machines is a newspaper telling of a man who was killed, presumably by accident, by a train. Later, once you begin descending levels, you will come across a stairwell that has an occult magazine lying on the ground. Read it, and it will describe how the ghosts of those who commit suicide or those who died by accident often come back to haunt the places of their death, and will either come to people for help or take revenge on them. If you read both of these articles and descend the steps, Heather will walk down to the subway track, and a small intermission sequence will ensue which has a ghost push Heather onto the train tracks. You must turn around quickly and climb back up, or you will be killed by an oncoming train. Note: That this occurred in the Extra New Game mode.
To have this happen in Normal mode, you only need to look at the
newspaper on the ticket vending machines for the sequence to happen.
You do not have to look at the magazine.
Order of tarot cards at the last door of the game
Arrange the cards as follows in the normal action and normal riddle difficulty settings:
- Northwest position: Eye Of The Night
- Northeast position: Moon
- West position: High Priestess
- East position: Fool
- South position: Hanged Man
Arrange the cards as follows in the hard difficulty setting.
- Northwest position: The High Priestess
- North position: The Eye Of The Night
- Center position: The Fool
- East position: The Moon
- Southwest position: The Hanged Man
The riddle is a problem with Roman numerals. The Priestess is number II (2) as read on the book about tarots. The Eye Of The Night is XXII (22). The Fool is 0. The Moon is XVIII (18). The Hanged Man is XII (12). Look in the book of drawings to see that XVIII can stay only in the east position (the last letter is I instead of L); XII is only in the southwest position; II is only in the northwest position; 0 and XXII have two places where they can stay. Swap them until you find their correct place.
On the easy difficulty setting, simply look at Alessa's Drawing
book for drawings representing the different cards and where they
should be put on the door.
Kill 333 enemies. Playing through the game several times will achieve this.
Note: Wear the Transform costume to change the Heather Beam into the Sexy Beam.

Unlock the Flamethrower and the Beam Saber with just one game played completely
To unlock these two extra-weapons without having to play a new game from the beginning, save your game in the tarot-puzzle room just before the last Boss. When you finish the game, you will unlock one of the weapons (Flamethrower or Beam Saber). Save your results. After this, load that previous saved game and finish it again. You will now unlock the other weapon.
Unlock the Flamethrower, Beam Saber, and Unlimited Sub Machine Gun with just one game played completely
Finish the game and save your results. You should have at least one special weapon unlocked (Beam Saber, Unlimited Sub Machine Gun, or Flamethrower). Then, load your saved game again. Finishing the game the second time with the same save will unlock the Flamethrower (if you do not have it). Finish the game the third time, but kill the last Boss, Claudia, with only melee weapons such as the Maul or the Katana. After that, you will unlock the Unlimited Sub Machine Gun. Note: If you do not have the Beam Saber, then in the third time through kill the last Boss, Claudia, with long range weapons such as the shotgun or the sub machine gun.
Ammo multiplier 5X
Finish the game once, then load your saved game again. Finish the game again nine times using the same saved game. When you start a new game or extra new game, enter the extra options menu. You can now set the bullet multiplier option to 5X. When you pick any ammunition, it will be multiplied nine times more than the normal amount.
At the end of the game after the credits, you are shown
the ranking you earned. Your ranking is determined by many factors,
such as the time needed to complete the game and Boss, how many
monsters you killed, how much damage you took, etc. At the bottom
of the screen you will see two rows of stars. Every large star
represents ten small stars, Use these stars to calculate your
final ranking out of 10.0. For example, if you got seven large
stars and eight small stars, your ranking would be 7.8.
When the intermission sequence between Claudia and Vincent is finished and Vincent dies, use the necklace.
Die by getting pulled in water
After getting in the sewer, you should find a area
with a door that has a warning sign next to it. Read the diary
on the desk. It will have information revealing that a monster
killed his friends and a little more on how to kill it. Save the
game and go across the bridge without getting rid of it. A large
tentacle will grab your leg and drag you in the water.
In the introduction at the Lakeside Amusement Park
(nightmare), when you look at all the bunny costumes they are
covered in blood. When you enter the gift shop, you can see that
only the pink bunnies are covered in blood, and the rest are clean.
