Chicago Typewriter:
Complete the Assignment Ada mini-game to unlock the Chicago Typewriter (Tommy gun with unlimited ammunition) for purchase for one million Pesetas.

This gun has 10.0 Firepower and a TMP-like firing rate. It can be used to kill Veldugo without freezing him very quickly, and will dispatch Ganados and Los Illuminados almost instantly. This gun also has unlimited ammunition.

When you complete the original game, you will have the option to start a new game with all of your items from the end of your first session. However, you will also unlock Assignment Ada. Complete Assignment Ada to unlock the Chicago Typewriter in story mode with Leon. Instead of getting the Infinite Launcher or the Matilda, save as much money as possible, and sell all your ammo and weapons except for the rifle. Only do this when You should have at least 1,000,000 Pesetas and can purchase the Chicago Typewriter. This weapon has maximum firepower, an extremely fast firing rate, and unlimited ammunition.

The Chicago Typewriter is one of the best guns to have with you throughout the game. Besides the 10.0 Firepower (equivalent to a Magnum), it is a rapid fire weapon that will bring any enemy to its knees (including Bosses). It is also a very useful and enjoyable gun to use to mow down Ganados or take down a El Gigante with ease.

Get a five star rank with all mercenaries to unlock the Handcannon weapon. To get unlimited ammunition for it, fully upgrade all of the Handcannon's options.

Successfully complete the game two times. The Handcannon will be available as soon as you start the game again for 0 Pesetas. It is a very powerful magnum, and will have unlimited ammunition. When you go to upgrade it in the merchant window, in the "Handcannon" update screen there is an option labeled "Exclusive". When chosen, the gun is upgraded with power identical to the Chicago Typewriter.
Matt Moore.

Alternate ending sequence:
Successfully complete Assignment Ada and watch the credits. They will be in gray scale. However, if you select "Yes" when asked "Watch the ending movie again?", it will be replayed in color in a smaller frame. If you watch it once more when prompted, it will play is full wide screen color. They will alternate each time you choose to replay the credits.

Hint: Handcannon spread:
If you are observant, you can actually see that the Handcannon fires in spreads of four bullets. The best place to see this is to take the Handcannon and go to the lake where you face the Del Lago Boss. Take out the Handcannon and fire into the water from the high cliff on the left. When the bullets hit the water, you will see four splashes. This indicates that the Handcannon fires in four bullet spreads, almost like a shotgun.

Hint: Punisher:
If you destroy all blue targets in the beginning you can get a free Punisher from the Merchant 2 guns before you can buy it. This pistol hits two targets when you get it, and five when you get exclusive. This makes it work well for crowd control.

After you complete the game you can load your cleared saved game file and use your previously collected items. Every time you start a game this way shoot the blue amulets. You will still get a free Punisher. This will take awhile but it is a good method to get money.

Hint: Riot Gun one shot kills:
To do this, you must fill the entire Firepower, Firing Speed, Reload Speed and Capacity of the weapon. When you shoot a Ganado or a Los Luminados, one shot will kill them. Note: The same happens with the Chicago Typewriter.
Danny Phetdara.

Hint: Exclusive gun upgrade effect:
All guns except for the Killer 7 have an exclusive effect.

Handcannon: Unlimited ammunition.

Hint: Killing birds:
Toss a flash grenade in the center of a group of birds. All of them will die instantly, leaving lots of Pesetas. This also works with the Granadas when their heads are transformed.

Hint: Defeating Bosses:
The easiest way to kill Bosses is buying a rocket launcher. For example, shoot the first golem thing with a shotgun or any other weapon that can weaken it. When it bends over and the parasite sticks out of his back, shoot it with your rocket launcher and it will die. It works with every golem. This also works with Salazar and his "right hand" (hooded creature), and the armored enemy that has something like a football helmet.

Buy the Infinite Launcher if you are able to. This is not needed, but it is cheaper overall. Normal launchers will also work. Shoot any of the following Bosses once with a launcher to defeat them: Verdigo (Salazars right hand man), any El Gigante, Dr. Salvador, Bella Sisters, J.J. (mini gun man),Salazar (after shooting the thing in the eye), and the blind enemies with claws. These must be direct hits. Also, the Infinite Launcher helps against Saddler.

Note: This works on a few specific Bosses. When you are fighting the El Gigante, make the parasite stick out of its back. When it fully kneels over, go very close to behind him and you will be allowed to press X to climb onto his back and slash the parasite multiple times, depending on the tapping speed. This is much more effective then shooting it with weapons if you can tap fast enough (auto-fire recommended). When you are fighting the first El Gigante, the battle will be much easier with parasite slashing. If you have an Auto-Fire enabled controller, you can probably kill the El Gigante in two climbs. When you are fighting Saddler, have him show his big mouth-eye then get close to him and tap X. You will see Leon climbing from behind and stabbing Saddler's eye. Doing this repeated times can kill him in less than four stabs.

Hint: 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. .
Max Richter.

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.

When he morphs into the parasite, use a rocket launcher to shoot the Big Cheese. He will then split in two. Climb the ladder and take out your shotgun. When he is close, just shoot him a few times.

At the start of the fight when the "Big Cheese" is still on his feet, go up the ladder and get all of the items, or wait until the end of the fight. If you chose to get the items before the end of the fight, the battle will be slightly harder unless you have the rifle with scope. If you do not have it, you must go down the ladder and destroy the "Big Cheese's" first form from the opposite area. If you do not choose to go up the ladder, just stand your ground and move if needed. Try using the shotgun in the first part of the fight. After the "Big Cheese" splits in half, go into the bottom right corner of the bottom level as far as possible. If done correctly, the "Big Cheese" will not be able to attack you. After you are positioned correctly, attack him with your shotgun and TMP. Note: During the first part of the battle, destroy all of the gasoline tanks with your handgun to inflict extra damage on the "Big Cheese" to end the battle faster and to conserve ammunition.
Tha Ki11a.

In the early parts of the game, Leon will encounter the "Big Cheese" while he is tied up to agent Luis. You encounter him later in the game in a barn type arena. Reload all your weapons before you trigger the intermission sequence. Before you enter the barn, Leon will tell Ashley to hide. Leon will enter the barn and this triggers the appearance of the "Big Cheese". You must dodge him by tapping two random control combinations. Leon will tip over a barrel and say "Hasta Luego". "Big Cheese" will change into his second form (parasite with legs). To defeat this Boss easily, you must have at least three hand grenades and two or three incendiary grenades. As soon as the intermission sequence ends, equip yourself with hand grenades. Throw the first hand grenade then wait for "Big Cheese" to recoil slightly. Maintain your sense of direction and mark which side the door that he tied up is on. You must have good timing. Throw the second hand grenade as soon as he has recoiled only a little bit. Once he has recoiled, throw the last grenade. He might turn into his third spider-like form, but this is highly unlikely. The "Big Cheese" will probably be very close. Use a flash grenade to stun him for a moment, then use your shotgun to transform him into his third form. This should require about two or three good shots. Once he is in his third form back up into the corner on the side with the TMP ammo. It is in the far back corner opposite of the entrance. Quickly turn around and look for a red barrel that you can shoot. The barrel will explode. When you are in the corner, wait for "Big Cheese" to come into range of the barrel. Once he is in range, shoot the barrel and he should fall to the floor. Quickly take out your incendiary grenades and throw one at him. He should recoil and you should be able to use another one. If done correctly the battle should end. If he gets up again and climbs onto the rafters, use your shotgun to knock him down and use an incendiary grenade. This should finish him off nicely. If he is still not dead, unload a gun clip into him and teh battle will end. Once done, heal if necessary, and obtain all the items. Get the False Eyeball. It is needed to open the gate with the retinal scanner on the other side of the lift.
Maymy Twin.

If you are able to, purchase the Infinite Rocket Launcher. Shoot it once at the beginning and he should fall in half. Shoot him again and a cinematic will play in which his eyeball comes out; then proceed with the rest. You can also use the normal and special rocket launchers with the same method.
Jacob Wetherall.

Hint: Defeating Chief Mendez:
When you fight Mendez in the barn, use grenades to stun him, then fire the shotgun or TMP to break his spine and change him into his second form. When he is in this form he will hang from the ceiling and attack you. Use the ladder to go to the second floor then run to the right side of the catwalk, on the side where you find the Red Herb. Move as far to the end of the catwalk as you can without using the other ladder to go down. When Mendez attacks, hit him when he has only one arm holding himself up, so that he falls. If done correctly, do not move. When he jumps back up on the ceiling he will be unable to hit you at all from his position. Then, shoot him until he dies. You will not take any damage. If you shoot him off again, simply let him return to the same place and he will still be unable to hit you.

After the torso separates, equip the sniper rifle and aim for his "insect arms" (the ones he uses to swing from the rafters with). When he falls on the ground writhing in pain, shoot him with your strongest and fastest gun. If you are out of ammunition, toss incendiaries or regular grenades. The best thing to do is to run back to the barred door, do a 180 degree turn, and snipe him when you get a clear shot.

Hint: Avoiding Del Lago:
When Del Lago goes underwater and comes at you, turn the boat as far to the right as possible. You will always avoid a hit.
Joe Alvarado.

Hint: Defeating Del Lago (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.
squee4221 and Jacob Bratek.

When you are fighting Del Lago, do not attack it. Keep avoiding it until the boat stops and you pick up a harpoon. When Del Lago starts swimming towards you with its mouth open, aim for the center of its mouth (the parasite) and you should get an instant kill.
Justin Nguyen.

Hint: Defeating Dr. Salvador:
When facting Dr. Salvador (the chainsaw man with a burlap bag on his head), do not let him get very close or he will decapitate you. About fifteen shotgun shell to the face are required to kill him.

Hint: Avoid fighting El Gigante:
Use the following trick to avoid fighting El Gigante when he is encountered 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 Ashley.

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.

Hint: 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 ammunition.
nick and LilManSam.

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 damage.
Mark Rivenburgh.

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 more damage.

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 next place.

Near the beginning on the right side of the road is a dog/wolf in a bear trap. Save him. After doing so, he will run off into the woods. Later during you fight with El Gigante, it will show up and help as a distraction. It will take his attention off of you so that you can collect items. If you fire, he will go back after you, but will later still go back to trying to attack the dog/wolf.
Josh Nelson.

Buy a rocket launcher from a merchant. Equip it and go to the arena to face the first El Gigante. At first, run around from him until the dog helps you (if you helped it out of the bear trap earlier). Then, run to the other side of the arena while El Gigante is busy. Hold R, wait until you see his face, and make a head shot. If done correctly you will not have to cut that thing out of his back.

If you are able to, purchase the Infinite Rocket Launcher. There is no need at all to get the stick things to come out of his back. Just shoot once with the launcher. You can also use the normal and special rocket launchers with the same method.
Jacob Wetherall.

Hint: Defeating Garrador:
When you fight Garrador (the person in the prison), leave Ashley upstairs. Go downstairs and shoot the bell. Then, take out the mine thrower and shoot the parasite on his back. The explosion will kill him instantly. Then, call Ashley, pull the lever, and go upstairs.

Hint: 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.

Hint: Defeating J.J. (mini gun man):
An easier way to kill J.J is to first hit him in the head with a weaker gun. When he is holding his head, attack him with a more powerful weapon. If he recovers quickly, just use the same strategy. This also works on the military base during the Mercenaries mini-game.
meda king.

Hint: 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 weapon.

Hint: 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.
Chris Hess.

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.
Dan Gerick.

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.

This trick requires the Stryker with a couple of power and capacity upgrades. Keep shooting him with the Stryker until his arm transforms. When he uses his arm as a shield, shoot his legs. then open fire on his back. Keep doing this until he dies.

You actually only need the knife at first. When the fight starts, he will be aiming at you with either his custom TMP or his bow. Just run away to a small tower-like structure. Krauser will follow you. When he gets close, slash him with the knife. He should flinch, back off, toss a flash grenade, and escape. It might require more than one slash, but usually, even under the pro difficulty setting it takes only one to make him back off every time. When his arm finally transforms, try dodging his attacks and waiting for an opening. Then blast him with a powerful gun when his arm is not in the way. Note: He may not take damage when he is on one knee.

Use the following trick to defeat Krauser with Ada. Work your way up to the last part of the gamem where you reach the long bridge-looking area. Slowly walk up, and as soon as you see the three barrels stop and shoot them with anything other than your rifle. Walk a little further up and watch the intermission sequence as Krauser jumps down and starts chasing you. Then, if you want the items, run as fast as you can, pick them up, then run to the edge of the bridge. Turn around, and shoot Krauser in his head with your rifle. (or any part of his body that is not covered by his wing). This should keep him from slashing you with his wing-like arm. After this, stay backed up into the edge and, even though he is close, continue to shoot him with your rifle. This may take some practice, but you can still use your button commands while scoping. Since you do not have a knife, this is probably the most effective way to kill him. He will go down with about five or six shots to the head.
Elmo Amador.

When you see him, draw your knife and he will do so as well. He will walk slowly toward you. Just swipe your knife and he will back away holding his face. He will often initiate a "duel" with you, and you must press A + B or L + R to complete the combo. It ends when you kick him in the face. This is more amusing and saves ammunition.

When Krauser's arm transforms and he attacks, get the action command correct and you both should be on the wooden balcony. When this happens, he will do his back flip. When he does, get off the balcony so that only he is on it. Then when he comes toward, take out your pistol and shoot him in the leg until he falls to one knee . Note: This was done with the exclusive Blacktail. While he is on one knee, pop him in the face once. Eventually he will fall and die.
Shawn Bean.

Use the following trick to defeat Krauser in pro mode. Before you even meet Krauser, make sure to buy the following items: a powerful Broken Butterfly, powerful Mine Thrower, rocket launcher, and several first aid sprays. Buying all these items may require selling guns but it is worth it. When you first meet Krauser, shoot him a few times until he runs away. Use your Broken Butterfly and sniper rifle to get rid of him and you will eventually make your way to the top of the tower to face Krauser for the final time. You only have about three minutes to defeat him. When you are fighting him, take out your Broken Butterfly and shoot him when you have the chance. When you shoot him, he goes down on one knee for about a second. This is a crucial time. As you shoot him with your Broken Butterfly go to your menu and switch to a Mine Thrower. Exit the menu and shoot Krauser with the Mine Thrower will he is still on his knee. This may require a few attempts because you must be close to get the mine on him. Make sure the mine is on his body, and not his arm. It only does damage on his body. Once the mine is on his body you will hear it beeping. Run away from Krauser and get some distance between him and yourself. Once the beeping gets faster and the mine is ready to explode, go to your menu and take out your rocket launcher. Immediately take aim. The mine will explode, sending Krauser to his knee. Shoot Kruaser in his chest with the rocket launcher. If the shot was good, Krauser will die. This may require a few attempts because the mine sometimes does not send Krauser to his knee. Make sure you have the Mine Thrower updated so that it is powerful enough to send him to his knee. Also, if Krauser is on his knee and you try to pull out the rocket launcher, it is too late. Aiming with the rocket takes too long and Krauser will be up again.

Use the following trick when fighting with Krauser on Leon's path. Krauser's close-in attack can be very annoying. However, you can counter his attack by using your own knife. When he is about to slash you with his knife, get prepared with yours and slash him. You will probably hit him in the face, stopping his attack and making him stumble for a bit. You just need to be close, and not draw out the knife too late or it will not work. If he is using his TMP, shoot him in the face with a gun (handgun recommended) so he will lose aim. When the second and the hardest part of the battle begins, you must press the correct combinations of buttons to avoid his attack. If you do not dodge, you will have to climb up before he makes you lose the grip. Also, you will lose health. Either way, you must hit him in the head to achieve a successful result. For this purpose, use an over-powered Broken Butterfly (it is stronger than the Killer7 when optimized with its special addition) and another gun to spare (probably the TMP and Blacktail). Shoot at its legs to make him kneel down, then quickly aim and fire. Another way is to wait until his head is no longer under the shield (most often after an attack), then shoot before he gets ready again. While he stumbles, you may get the chance to attack him again. With persistence and skill you may be able to kill him in not more than two minutes.

Use the following trick when fighting with Krauser on Ada's path. A good thing to do against Krauser is to shoot the crossbow at his legs when he is jumping back after an attack. Before he moves, aim quickly at his legs. It does not matter if the laser is not pointed at his legs; you just need to fire the bolt at a point close enough to hit him with the explosion. When you fight him in the last stage, fire all the crossbow bolts you have remaining, then use the TMP. Hit him when he is jumping back from an attack and it will be much easier.

There is a simple why to defeat Krauser, the final Boss in Assignment Ada, with the rifle and grenades. As you play Assignment Ada, conserve rifle ammo and grenades. Use them only when necessary. Near the end of the game is a lab. When you exit the lab, you will be on a catwalk. Krauser is triggered when you walk to the barrels. When he gets close to you, hit him with whatever grenades you have. Run past Krauser and go back into the lab. Be careful, as there are still enemies in the lab. Select the rifle and exit the lab. Krauser will now be at the other end of the catwalk, running towards you. Every time you leave the catwalk and then return, Krauser resets at the other end of the catwalk and runs towards you. Notice that the previous damage done with grenades and the rifle will remain. Aim the rifle and try to hit him in the feet or legs. Note: He shields himself with his mutated arm. If you hit him, he stops running and drops his arm, letting you get another shot in. It can be difficult to hit Krauser in the feet or legs because he runs quickly. Only try to hit him two or three times at most. Before he gets too close, do a quick turnaround and exit the catwalk back into the lab. Reload the rifle and exit the lab. Krauser will once again be at the other end of the catwalk, running towards you. Repeat the process until Krauser is defeated.

Hint: Avoiding close combat with Krauser:
At the beginning of the second encounter with Krauser, you will be forced into one area due to a gate which is on a time lock. Because of this, you are forced to deal with Krauser until the gate opens. To avoid wasting ammunition or Herbs, climb up the ladder and jump down once Krauser comes up after you. He will jump down again to get at you, which is your cue to simply climb back up the ladder. You can continue this charade until the gate opens, and Krauser will never be able to attack you. Although this is much less exciting than actually fighting Krauser, and far more ridiculous, it is more effective than wasting ammunition on an opponent you cannot kill while risking loss of health.
Roger Conturie.

When Krauser is in his normal form, he will try to slash you with his knife. Sometimes, dodge commands will appear. Press the correct buttons to dodge him. When the dodge commands do not appear, simply walk backwards. Do not turn around and run, as you will have already been hit while trying to turn around.
Kevin McFarland.

Hint: Defeating enemies on bridges:
When on a bridge with 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.

Hint: 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 will begin.
Drizzt Do'Urden.

Note: This trick requires a strong weapon such as the Chicago Typewriter or the Broken Butterfly if you have not completed the game yet. When the fight starts, shoot his lesser eyes on his leg. When he collapses, shoot the eye in his mouth to inflict damage greater than the knife. This strategy is very useful in pro mode, where about ten stabs will get Ada to throw the special launcher. However, it requires three exclusive Handcannon shots to get Ada to throw the special launcher. After that, two more shots will kill him.

You will need a lot of recovery items (buy them from the merchant before the battle), the Striker Shot gun, the Killer 7 magnum, and the Combat Vest. When you start the battle, Sadler's parasite will appear. Quickly run over the falling bridge and go to the side. Go up the ladder and pull the switch when he gets close. Run back across and do the same thing. Then, take out his four eyes with the shotgun (recommended) or any other weapon. Land hits with the magnum on his large eye. After you take out the eyes on his legs, Ada will throw you the Rocket Launcher special. Use it on Sadler's giant eye to finish the job. After the battle, collect the 10,000 Pesatas and run for the jetski.

Just before you enter to fight Saddler, there is a merchant up the hill from the elevator. Buy a rocket launcher. Note: Do not sell all your previous guns. If possible, keep at least one (shotgun recommended). Once done, enter the elevator and ride it up to see Ada hanging. Wait until Saddler transforms and let the battle begin. Keep your distance as much as you can until you see an eyeball on one of Saddler's legs. Quickly and as accurate as possible take out your shotgun and give that eye a good shot. This should bring Saddler down for a few seconds. Do not wait to watch him fall to his knees, as he gets back up almost instantly. Instead, bring out your rocket launcher and shoot the eyeball that was in his mouth. This should get Ada to toss you a second rocket launcher. Work your way up to the higher part of the arena. It may take some time to get there because the two bridges on either side will drop, then reconnect. Use some fast thinking and press L and R, or A and B to jump to the higher part if the bridge drops on you. Once you are up there, the first thing you want to go for is the rocket launcher that Ada threw. Once you grab it, turn and look towards Saddler. At this time you may want to take back out your shotgun or the gun that you previously used to shoot the eye on his leg. Watch Saddler and for the pipes he throws at you. For this, simply use the button command to dodge them. After awhile, usually when the bridge reconnects, he will jump to the side you are on. He may try to get as close to you as he can. If this happens run as fast as possible to the opposite side of where he is located. Once you get your distance, turn towards Saddler and shoot out one of the eyes on his legs again. When he falls, again take out the rocket launcher and shoot his eye in the mouth. Note: Do not worry about any items during the fight. If you are fast enough you should be able to get them after the battle.
Elmo Amador.

Buy two unlimited rocket launchers and shoot him once then in the eye ball. If you want to make the fight more difficult, use only a handgun and knife. At the beginning of the fight, run away from him until the eyeballs in his legs appear. When this happens, go near and climb him. Then, quickly run towards the little stage at the end of the platform and climb the ladder. Be careful because Saddler throws steel pipes quickly. When Saddler gets near the small platform, activate the wrecking machine and the pipes will hit him. Then, go down and climb him. Run away from him to the main platform and wait until he comes near the red barrel. Shoot the barrel and it will explode, allowing you to climb him. Shoot an eyeball from his legs and climb him again. Then, go to the other platform and wait until he jumps over there. When he jumps, run to the platform quickly and activate the machine. Climb him again and stab. There will now be a barrel. Wait until Saddler is next to it. Shoot it, then climb the back. When you shoot an eyeball in his leg and climb him the eight or ninth time, Ada will come out and give you the special rocket launcher. Shoot Saddler with it and it should kill him. Get the keys and go down the elevator. Note: Do not shoot Saddler with the special rocket launcher at close range. You will either miss or kill him and yourself.

It is possible to defeat Saddler without the Special Rocket Launcher. Buy the mine gun. Shoot it at his torso and he will drop instantly. Then, climb up on him and stab his eye. Run to each level on the platforms to hit him with steel beams. After the mine gun ammunition is expended, shoot him in the eyes on his legs to bring him down. Continue to stab his eye. After you dispose of all his leg eyes, Ada will throw you the rocket launcher. Just bring him down to the ground with any weapon and stab his eye. He will eventually die, and you will have a brand new Special Rocket Launcher that you can sell or use when you start a new game.
Kyle Hendrickson.

To defeat Saddler with very little effort, keep the Broken Butterfly from the Castle stage. Upgrade it to at least level 4 firepower. During the final Boss fight with Saddler, shoot the eyes that appear on his legs until he reveals the eye in his head. Then, shoot him with the magnum. This should kill him in two or three hits. For a one hit kill, upgrade it fully before the fight. Note: In the third stage (the whole island part), the Boss difficulty is determined by the number of guns that you own, the current upgrade status of them, along with the amount of health items and the amount of ammunition you have -- your results may vary.
Kyle Morgan.

As soon as you get to the island, start saving your hand grenades. By the time you get to Saddler you should have at least ten. When the fight starts, throw a hand grenade underneath Saddler and walk backwards a little to avoid being grabbed by him. When he is down, climb on top of him and stab him in his main eye. Keep repeating this process and Ada will throw you the rocket launcher. If you are lucky, you will not get any damage from Saddler.
Regina Fletcher.

Hint: 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.
Drizzt Do'Urden.

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 Chapter 5.
Kevin James.

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.
David O'byrne.

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).
Edgar Del Viento.

Buy a rocket launcher at the merchant just before you enter the Boss battle. After the intermission sequence (when Salazar transforms), shoot the striker out then shoot the eye of Salazar's transformed left hand until he opens his egg. Then, take out the rocket launcher and shoot Salazar. You will get 50,000 Pesetas.
james gaines.

To defeat Salazar, you need most weapons fully upgraded, like a shotgun, TMP, Punisher, Broken Butterfly or a Killer 7, and mine thrower. At the start of the fight, take out your shotgun and go left to get the herb and shotgun shells. Then, go to the right side of the room to avoid getting eaten when his head spreads out. Make sure you avoid all his attacks. Then, in clean shots get Salazar in the eye. After the fourth clean shot, he should come out from hiding. At this point, take out a mine thrower and shoot him twice until the head recovers. Then, if you have ammunition, shoot the eye ball with another mine dart and let it explode. The head should lower down, allowing you to hit Salazar. Take your TMP and keep shooting him until he recovers. Keep shooting the eye ball with your magnum. Keep doing this with different weapons every time he is defenseless and he should die. Note: If you run out of your main weapon ammunition, use the fully upgraded Punisher. Keep shooting the eye ball and he should die using no more than forty shots with all the damage done.

Get enough money to buy a rocket launcher. Use it on Salazar when he pops out. He should fall in the one shot.

When the battle starts, run to your right then turn right again. You should be given an option to jump down. Do so, then run towards the two barrels. Quickly smash them, then run to the corner of which the left barrel was at. This should be the corner on the right when facing Salazar. This is the only location where Salazar cannot get you, but you can still get him. The speed of this battle depends on the guns you have. The fastest way is to use a rocket launcher. Do not just blast it; you will just waste your rocket. While you are down there, there will be plenty of little scorpion-like things trying to attack you. Keep them at bay with a handgun or shotgun. They should start getting close every ten to fifteen seconds. In between these times, take out your rifle and aim for the green eye on the huge monster's face. When you get a clear shot, take it. Do not forget to take out your handgun or shotgun to kill the little scorpion things every few seconds. Repeat this until you see Salazar come out. At this time, take out your rocket launcher and fire at his head. This should kill him. If you do not have a rocket launcher, simply shoot Salazar's head with the rifle until he dies. This will take much longer and is much harder. You should not have to worry about running out of ammunition. The scorpion things should leave plenty of it.
Elmo Amador.

Make sure you have a mine thrower and a rocket launcher. Upgrade the damage range on the mine thrower at least one level. When the battle begins, hit the big head with the mine thrower. This should make Salazar appear in one hit. Simply shoot him with the rocket launcher to defeat him. If done fast enough, he should not have enough time to attack you.

Hint: 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.
Erik Lazo.

If you are able to, purchase the Infinite Rocket Launcher. When you start the fight properly, when he comes down from the ceiling it will take two direct hits to defeat him normally. Note: Make sure you have full health. You can also use the normal and special rocket launchers with the same method.
Jacob Wetherall.

Hint: 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 saves ammunition.
Gabriel Sanchez.

Hint: 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.

The first chainsaw man you encounter is in the house after you are almost choked to death. Go down the steps. Before going in the room, turn right and enter the bathroom. Be prepared for one of the monsters. Then, enter the dining room. In one corner of the room is a save point. Use it. Do not shoot your gun. Walk to the oven to your left. Open it and get the egg. Wover to the fireplace and walk by it into the other room. In the tall bookcase is an incendiary grenade. Slash the case with your knife and get the grenade. Now equipped your rifle, walk through the door. Do not kick it. Take two or three steps and zoom in with your scope towards the fence. Look for the chainsaw man. Shoot him between the eyes then run back up the stairs. Turn and equip the incendiary grenade. When he is halfway up the stairs, throw it at him. Run by and get to the door. Run all the way. You can stop to fight but listen carefully for his chain saw revving. If you hear it, run forward and get to the other doors before you lose your head.

Hint: 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.

Hint: 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.

First, stash Ashley. Then, take out any Ganados you see. Climb up the ladder and drop down in the pit. The sisters will eventually make their appearance. As soon as they do, go back to the door that you used to enter. Let them come to you and take them all out. It is recommended that you have the TMP, shotgun, and any kind of grenade (preferably incendiary or flash). Use the shotgun first, then the grenades, then finally the TMP. Aim for their legs to save time.

When you approach the "battle pit" where the chainsaw sisters battle begins, go around and knock down the ladder on the other side of the pit. Go to the other ladder (located on the opposite side of the ladder you knocked down). Jump down besides the ladder. The intermission sequence will start and the battle will begin. Immediately climb back up the ladder and knock it down. Then, just shoot them in the head. Any time you see one trying to set up the ladder, shoot them first. They will stop to pick up the ladder, which gives time to shoot them before they can set it up. This will cause them to drop the ladder. If they set up the ladder in front of you and one is climbing it, shoot them in the face when you see them approaching the top and kick the ladder back down. Regularly check to make sure no villagers are coming from either side of you. By doing this it is possible to defeat the chainsaw sisters without getting touched once, using only the basic handgun. If you use the shotgun or Punisher, the battle can end faster. Also, avoid using the rifle as it takes longer to shoot and can give the villagers too much time to set up and climb the ladders. The key is to make sure that they never get the ladders set back up. Once they are all dead (the chainsaw sisters should be the last two alive), you can hop down, grab all the goods, then set the ladder back up if desired.
Bobby Nickens.

In the part where you can choose our path to either El Gigante or the chainsaw sisters, you can go left and fight them. When you first enter and there is a ladder, get the sisters to follow you. Go down the ladder. Once they come down, go up and knock it down. Note: Make sure you have killed everyone else. As they get to the top of the ladder, knock it down. Do this repeatedly and after awhile it will kill them.
brad rupert.

Use the following trick when fighting the chainsaw sisters in the Story mode (when given the choice of right or left and they are the left option). You will be attacked by villagers as soon as you enter the left area. Dispose of them without shooting the wagon full of explosives. Make your way around to the ladder to climb up onto the platforms (avoiding the pitchfork person). Kill all the villagers before jumping down into the arena. Find the ledge where you can jump down next to the explosive wagon. Next, go all the way around the arena to the ladder on the far side. Jump down into the arena and the chainsaw sisters will spawn. Immediately run across to the ladder in front of you. Jump down next to the explosive wagon and run over to near the entrance door. Hold down the villagers so they stay next to the wagon until the chainsaw sisters are down next to the wagon. Set off the explosives and to complete the battle easily.

Hint: 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 defeated.

Hint: Avoiding the prison Boss:
Use the following trick to avoid the prison Boss the second time. When you go into the room where you get locked in a cage, stay on the sides and move to the left where the furniture is. Then, instead of fighting one person at a time and the prison Boss, you will fight two people at once with no prison Boss.
Richard Duncan.

Hint: Defeating Iron Maidens:
After the part where you rescue Ashley on the island, there will be a part where you must jump into the trash pile. After the jumping sequence, you will realize that Ashley is sitting on an Iron Maiden. There is a way to escape it. Quickly run towards the gate and open it. Shoot the Iron Maiden to make it back off, then quickly get on the other side of the gate and close it. The Iron Maiden cannot use a switch, so it is stuck. You can get rid of it. The other one is a few feet away. Past the second gate will be a dumpster that you will have to push. Push it, and wait a few seconds. The second Iron Maiden will be engaging you already. Just kill as you would do to a regular one. However if you are not quick, you can use the square path that is there to get the parasite in its back.
Brandon Carvalho.

Hint: Defeating Regenerators:
Use the following trick to defeat 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 gold.
Mark Rivenburgh.

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.

Use the following trick to kill the last Regenerator, in the jail cell. Run straight until you get to the ledge. Climb up. He should just be a few feet away. Take a grenade, wait until he is near the ledge, and throw it. It does not matter how long you take with the grenade because Regenerators cannot climb.
Brandon Carvalho.

Shoot them with a shotgun in the head and the arms followed by the legs so that he will fall. While on his stomach, shoot him in the back once and he should die.

Hint: Defeating Spiked Regenerators:
Spiked Regenerators can be defeated just like regular Regenerators, but they are different slightly. To defeat them, have the Infrared Scope attached to the rifle and aim it at the red spots of the Spikes Regenerators (spikes). To destroy the parasite on its back, use the Mine thrower to throw a mine on its left shoulder. Note: Sometimes two are required. This also works with regular grenades. You can stun them by throwing incinerate or flash grenades to buy yourself some time.
Hora Reinhold.

Hint: 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.

Hint: Defeating the giant leech:
Lure the leech back to the front end of the pool then fire a shot from your gun at the gas can where your unlock the boat. The can explodes, killing the giant leech.

Hint: 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.

Hint: 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 effective.
Gabriel Sanchez.

Hint: Defeating two men with claws:
When battling these two characters in a hall, simply move slowly to the end of the hall. If they hear you and start attacking, run and slow down. You can either go through the door or have some fun and hide behind one and shoot the other. The one you shoot will attack, but since you are behind one you are safe.
Cam Leake.

Hint: Defeating Novistadors:
Novistadors are the giant insects that you encounter mostly underground. They can be difficult if left alive for too long. They have a habit of jumping at you, spewing acid all over, and repeating this until you break them off or die. They also bend light around themselves, becoming mostly invisible. You can see them if you look carefully, especially for their glowing eyes. Blast them a few times with the shotgun from close range, or from afar with the semi-auto rifle or regular rifle. If they are airborne, shoot them once with the handgun in the air. They will go down with a single shot, but may also fall into a crevice or gap. If this happens, you will lose all the pickups, pesetas, ammo or the unique eye treasures they hold. Note: If you picked up the Thermal Scope when you completed the game and saved it until the point you encounter Novistadors, you can use the Thermal Scope to see them easier.

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).

Hint: Defeating villagers:
The villagers are very common, and are the weakest of Los Ganados or "the cattle". They go down with a few well placed headshots. Alternately, shoot them once in the head, once in the knee, then go close and kick them. They should go down easily like this under the pro difficulty setting. Otherwise, just headshot and kick, or kneeshot, kick and finish off with the knife. Note: Always finish downed Ganados with the knife to save ammunition, except if you cannot reach them.

Use the following trick to easily pick off villagers during the first visit to the village. When you first get to the village, go inside the building with a red dumpster near the door. After the intermission sequence, go behind the stairs to get a few items. Then, go upstairs. Get the shotgun on the wall and shatter the glass to get a grenade. Look on the bed for shotgun ammunition. Jump out the window that is next to the cabinet. Once you are out, throw down the ladders. Then, go around to the other side of the house. There will be a person here. Dispose of him and stand where he was. Turn around to face the path you used and just shoot the villagers that get near you. If Dr. Salvador appears, just shoot him. If he gets too close, jump off the house.

Hint: 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.
Martijn Muis.

Hint: Defeating the village chief:
His weak point is his spine. This important body part is best targeted with the shotgun and the TMP. Bitors has a devastating lunge attack that you must dodge. Watch his arms. They will flinch just before he attacks. Keep hitting the spine and eventually he will break in two. Bitors will get up and start swinging around the cross beams. Climb up the ladder and blast the half village chief when he gets too close. Keep shooting him and he will be dead in no time.

Hint: Defeating zealots:
Zealots are the hooded Ganados in the castle area. They are tough, and take more punishment than your average Ganado. Watch out if the parasite in them pops out of their heads. They have a nasty habit of chomping your head off in a single bite when they get close. Otherwise, use the shotgun at close range and blast off their heads. Alternately, use a handgun and make several headshots, a knee shot, and when he is kneeling go close and suplex him down. Leon will suplex them down instead of kicking. The suplex is more powerful than the kick, but it does not knock down others around you like the kick. There does not seem to be a way to switch between the kneeling kick and the kneeling suplex; the headshot/flash blind attack is always a kick.

Hint: Fooling Ganados:
When any Ganados are in front of you, quickly press Up + B then back up. The Ganados will swing a weapon at you and miss. This gives you a chance to knife or shoot them. This also works on the chainsaw maniacs.
Joe Alvarado.

Hint: Defeating the two hallway Ganados:
To defeat them, take out a rocket launcher and fire at the doors in the back of the room. Note: When you enter the area, do not take a single step to avoid arousing the cultist.

Hint: Another way out:
At the start of the game, before you enter the house, go to the side of it and break the window with your knife. After you kill the villager, run up the stairs, get the ammunition, run back down, and jump through the window you broke earlier to get outside without getting ambushed. Note: If you are noticed immediately for any reason (for example, forgetting to break the glass), you will be cornered and hurt badly.
john baltitas.

Hint: 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.
Jacob Walsh.

Hint: 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.

Hint: 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.

Hint: 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.
Gabriel Sanchez.

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.
Neil Peart.

Hint: Castle: Knights:
When you are on the board to get the King's grail, you will become trapped in the place with the knights. For the first round of knights, use the shotgun. If you have a Magnum, do not use it yet. The second round comes with feathers on their heads. Use the magnum (Killer 7 recommended). In the room should be a Green Herb and ten shotgun shells. Collect them and the grail.
chris vaughn.

When you are getting the King's Grail to unlock the King And Queen door, there are six knights that can be difficult to deal with if you do not fight them correctly. Instead of bringing Ashley into the room with you, tell her to wait before you run in. This will allow you to fight the knights without worrying about her safety. Collect all the items in the room before taking the grail. When the knights start walking toward you, equip the shotgun and back into a corner so you can see all of them. Wait until they get close, but not close enough that they can attack you, then shoot them in the helmet to stun them. Run to the other side and repeat until the Las Plagas pop out of their heads. Continue to shoot them in head but be cautious of the Las Plagas, as they will rip your head off in one bite. This will allow you to defeat them rather quickly. After you defeat the first three, three more knights will appear. Do not let your guard down. Note: Knights may not become stunned, so be ready to run. They raise their weapons quite slowly so you should be able to avoid getting hit. Do not turn your back on them. Also, use a shotgun that has been moderately upgraded. At least fifteen to twenty shotgun shells will be required.

Hint: Castle: Easy money:
Look behind every painting of Saddler to find 5,000 Pesetas.

Hint: 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.
Martijn Muis.

Hint: Castle: Easy Zealot battle:
Go in the room just before the Gallery, in the castle. When you have to defeat the platoon of Zealots and the Red Cow-Skulled Zealot with the hidden chaingun in the center of the room, there is a way to bypass the chaingun all together. When you are chasing the Red Cow-Skulled Zealot around the room, if you have the Broken Butterfly with upgraded firepower (over 27) when he runs down the stairs to the bottom floor, move quickly enough to see him about halfway down. Take out your Magnum, and shoot him. He will fall to the ground. Shoot him two or three more times (depending on how powerful your Magnum is). This will effectively kill him, and he will drop the Gallery Key. No chaingun dodging will be necessary, and you will save a lot of ammunition.
Tyler Christenson.

Hint: Cemetery: Eye in the sky:
When you reach the cemetery part of the town, kill the two Ganados, then stand in the middle of the cemetery. Look up and "seek" for an eye-like thing. It seems to be reactions of the Illuminado's blood on Leon's body.

Hint: 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.

Hint: 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 see fit.
Teague Ense.

Hint: 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.
Teague Ense.

Hint: 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 get revenge.
Teague Ense.

Hint: Church: Ring bell:
At the church where you rescue Ashley, you can shoot at the bell outside and it will ring.
Jacob Bratek.

Shoot the bell in order for more zombies to come running through the graveyard towards the church.
Jake Miller.

Hint: 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 hectic.

Hint: Lava room:
In the area where the room is filled with lava, enemies will appear on pillars with horses that shoot fire at you. Instead of waiting for a clear shot to shoot the man on the pillar, simply shoot at the chain that is holding the pillar. If one of the chains breaks, the entire pillar will fall. This makes it easier to get through the room. If you queue all of the pillars to appear and shoot them all down, once you shoot the last one down no more enemies will appear in the room, even the ones that fall from the ceiling.
Christopher M. Rhoads.

Hint: Mine cart ride:
When you start the mine cart ride, equip the weapon of your choice (TMP recommended) and go to the back of the last cart in the row. Then, face forward and blast away. By doing this, no enemies will able to get you from behind, including the Chainsaw Men. Make sure to shoot out the barriers when they appear, and be ready to jump at the end of the line.
Christopher Sutler.

Hint: 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.

Hint: 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.

Hint: Mercenaries mini-game: Good choke point:
Use the following trick to get an easy five star rank. In the village, there is a barn. It was blocked in the main game. This is best donw with Wesker. First, collect all the time and ammunition and go in the barn. Get the time, climb the ladder, and knock it down. Get the point increase. By now the Ganados should be in, including the Bellas. When they are all near, shoot the barrel and snipe or use the Killer 7 and shoot the sisters. Use grenades, and if you need to go down throw a flash grenade and use Hunk's neckbreaker; Krauser's, Leon's, or Ada's kick; or use Wesker's thrustpunch. Do not let them get up to you.

Hint: Mercenaries mini-game: Playing as Hunk:
It is best to shoot the Gondos in the head, the perform a neckbreaker. This will kill an opponent in one snap including the Chainsaw Sisters and Gondos. This move does not work on J.J. (Gattling gun man) or the crazy may with the twin-bladed chain saw.
Randy Rodgers.

Hint: 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.
Chris Hess.

Hint: 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 crane.

Hint: Chapter 2-3: Early Zombie kills at gondola:
Just as you get to the gondola, go to your left and equip the sniper rifle. There are two zombies very far off, waiting for you to board. Snipe these two before you get on the gondola. Now, all of the enemies will appear from the bottom right corner of the screen.

Hint: Chapter 2-3: Rooftop fun:
Note: This is a fun trick if Ashley is wearing the Knight Armor. Otherwise, be careful and do not use her for "bait". When you return to the Pueblo area after rescuing Ashley from the church, if you are quiet and stealthy enough, you can raid the southern area of the Pueblo without being seen. Next, go up to the balcony of the two-story house. There are several good vantage points here. Use one shot of the sniper rifle to lure an enemy after you, then run around to the other side of the balcony. Command Ashley to wait just before you get to the small roof on the end. Go up on the small roof by yourself, then do a 180 degree turn and wait for the enemy to approach. They will always go for Ashley first, so only do this if she is wearing the Knight Armor.

Vantage Point 1: The corner of the balcony or the small apex right before it. From here you can snipe the enemies that are waiting near the northeast exit.
Vantage Point 2: The far corner of the roof at the end of the balcony. You can spot a few more enemies in the northeast and southeast directions.
Vantage Point 3: The roof with the chimney. From here you can see the entire southern region of the Pueblo in 180 degrees from the western entrance to the tower.

Hint: Chapter 3: Dining room painting:
Look through your sniper rifle at the entire painting. The only part of the painting that is in 3D is the wine bottle. You only have to shoot the wine bottle. Do not waste rifle ammo on the rest of the painting, as there are no extra rewards.

Hint: Chapter 3-2: Stealthy cultist kills:
Note: This strategy can be used if you do not have a rocket launcher. After the prison area with the Novistadors and immediately after the Pit and Pendulum area, open the door. You should have a "spy" position on the cultists. Go to the left-hand corner, "hugging" the wall. When you get all the way in the corner, slowly take a step or two forward until you can see three or four cultists. Aim an incendiary or regular (green) grenade and lob it towards the center of the cluster. You should get at least eight Spinels, including the Illuminados Pendant. The best one to use is the green grenade if available.

Hint: Chapter 3-2 puzzle:
In Chapter 3-2 you must solve a puzzle to continue. The puzzle states that six lives should be sacrificed to show you the true path. Look at the paintings and try to put the ones that have two men on the guillotine and the other two paintings should have two bodies hanging. After you assemble the paintings, select "OK" and a door should appear.

All you have to do is press 1, 2, 3 and 4 then select "OK" and the path should be open.
Armando Mendez.

Hint: Chapter 3-2: Defeating the sewer insects:
In Chapters 3-2, immediately after Ashley helps you get to the other side of the room, she gets trapped in a wall and gets sent to another room. The wooden door next to you will lead you to sewers that are infested with insects. To kill the insects, you must have a regular sniper upgraded two or three times its firepower, or the shotgun upgraded two or three times its firepower. When you start take out your sniper and go all the way to the end, aim at the corner in the opposite wall. You should see drool. Shoot the drool and it should reveal the insect. If it is not dead, shoot it again in the head. It should die. Alternately, take out your shotgun and point at the drool. Shoot it three or four times. Do this to the rest of the insects and it should kill them.

Hint: 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.

Hint: Chapter 4-1: Defeating both Claw enemies:
When you first enter the room with the two Illuminados and the two Claw enemies, take out your rifle or some other gun that will take the first Illuminados out in one shot. Then the Claw enemies will hear you and you should let one of the two come after you. Run out of the way when he swings at you. There is a Green Herb to the left in a corner. Shoot the Claw enemy immediately after you dodge him. Use the Broken Butterfly to shoot him in the back on his Plaga. Only two shots for each one is required. After you shoot that one, the other will come after you. Let him do so, then shoot him. The other one will come after you again. Shoot him and he will die, leaving you 15,000 Pesetas. Do the same with the other one, and the same reward will be given. Note: Do not run away; walk instead. They are blind and get around only by sound. If you are quiet, this battle will be easy.
Jeff Brown.

Hint: Chapter 5-3: Leon rests:
After you clear the laser rays, you will enter a hallway with a large fancy brown chair. There will also be an elegant headdress. Go to the chair, take whatever there is, and a "?" will appear. Activate it.

Hint: 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.

A good close-range combat tactic is to strike a weapon-less enemy before he grabs you with the knife or a weapon in the head. Then, while he stumbles, close in and press [Kick]. If the enemy is weakened enough, you will smash his head. If not, you will knock him down, allowing you to shoot him while he is on the ground.

If the enemy is far away, but not too far, shoot him in the head and run towards him while he stumbles. If he recovers, stop and shoot him in the head again. Continue to do this until you are close enough to "kick" him down.

If you are close enough and do not want to waste ammunition, use the knife. Aim high enough if you want to kick their head, and thus be able to "kick" them. It is harder to hit a knocked down enemy with the knife because you will have to set your aim very low. However, you have him pinned down and are free to shoot. Aiming at the head while the enemy is on the ground will make things easy.

If the enemy is very far away, use the rifle. Take your time and do not run or they will notice you; just walking instead of running makes less noise. Find a good location from which you can shoot safely to several targets if necessary. Aim accurately and shoot at the head. If someone else notices you, do not let your guard down and knock them down as well. With some practice you will be able to kill enemies (headshots recommended) with the rifle even when they are "a bit" too close.

Aiming at a weapon held by an enemy will, in most cases, cause that person to lose that weapon. Take advantage of this when you are facing Ganados with dangerous weapons. Also note that it is much more difficult to take down a crossbow from its user. In these cases, aim at the head.

Aiming at an enemy's feet will cause him to stumble or stop walking or running. Take advantage of this to hit him in the head or to make a headshot with the rifle.

When you are close enough, rely on your knife.

Hint: 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.

Hint: 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.

In the room where Ashley gets carried away by an insect is a giant tentacle hanging from the ceiling. Equip your pistol and then shoot it until it falls. It will drop red, blue, and green eye. Get the Butterfly Lamp by going back into the hallway and jumping out the nearest window.

Hint: Destroying the big rock:
When you get to the place where you must the dynamite on the big rock, instead just shoot it with a rocket or infinite launcher to destroy it.
Jesse Gray.

Hint: Valuable jewels:
Around the village, some trees will have bird nests. Shoot them off to get valuable jewels to sell to the merchant.

Hint: 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 Chicago Typewriter.

Hint: 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.

In the beginning, do not sell the beer stein. Then, get the red, green, and yellow cats eye. Do not sell the decorative mask until you get the three pendants. If done correctly, they should be worth 20,000 Pesetas each.

Get to the point where you are in the room where Ashley is taken by the invisible flying creatures, After you kill them all and lower the bridge, shoot the nest which hangs from the ceiling. It will fall off into the pit under you, showing the moonlight into the room. Leave the room and come back into it. You can now get the treasure of all of the creatures that were inside of it that you could not previously shoot. It amounts to three Red Eyes, two Blue Eyes , and five Green Eyes.
Steven Kaster.

After defeating Del Lago, the giant crocodile, in the lake you can get lots of money by sniping (recommended) or harpooning black bass. Small black bass are worth 750 Pesetas and large ones are worth 2,500 Pesetas.
reno kisaragi.

Always kill any crow that you see. They always drop money and some of them even drop Spinels and Velvet Blues.
Lord Sephiroth.

Always look for bee nests in tree. They drops Spinels and some of them drops Gems to attach in treasures found.
Lord Sephiroth.

After you have Chicago Typewriter, make sure you get an X-Large attache case (the biggest one available). Sell off anything you can pick up, as you play another replay game. Get the shotgun and sell it to the Merchant. Do the subquest to get the Punisher for free, then sell it back to the Merchant. If Leon's and Ashley's HP gauges are already at maximum, then you can put together mixes of Red, Green, and Yellow herbs and sell them to the merchant for 10,000 Pesetas each. The only things you should keep besides a few First Aid Sprays is one Flash Grenade. In the room where you get trapped in a cage with the Garrador, you will need one green grenade to blast the door open. Make sure to pick one up before you get here. In the room is the rocket launcher in a display case. Take this and keep it. You will need to use it after Castle Tower to kill the Twin Garradors. Continue to pick up any kind of ammunition, even if you do not need it. If you sell items like those throughout the game, your Pesetas will soon be in the millions. When you pick a replay game, do it all over again.

Complete the game at least once. You will need the Striker fully upgraded and the Infinite Launcher. After the cabin fight, go to the Chainsaw Sisters. Use the Striker to kill them and the extra Ganados. Then, go to El Gigante and use the Infinite Launcher. You should get a ruby and 10,000 Pesatas.

At the beginning of the game, you can find a grenade in a shack on the right side of the road. Save it for the village. When you enter the village, run to the path that leads out of it with the chainsaw man. You can stop before you get to him without him seeing you. Throw the grenade and it will kill the two Ganados and knock down the chainsaw man. While he is on the ground, run over to him and start shooting him in the head. It will require seven or eight shots with the handgun to kill him, leaving you with 10,000 Pesetas. Run back to the village and enter the house with the shotgun. Pick up the shotgun and wait for the other chainsaw man to appear. Kill him for another 10,000 Pesetas. Note: One of the chainsaw men also drops a ruby which can be sold for 10,000 Pesetas.
Sean Wetrich.

Hint: 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.
Mark Rivenburgh.

Hint: Save health at start:
While at the beginning after killing the man with the axe, run up the stairs. Do not jump out. Turn around and get the handgun bullets. Then, shoot the window until it breaks. Try to kill the two men outside of the window. If you do not kill them, they will run to the front door. After that, run back down the stairs and you should see a window. Dive out of this window. You will see the men inside the house. The door is still closed. Kill the three men and you can go on the trail with full health.
Dillon Lane.

Hint: Gaining health:
Before you fight Del Lago, walk onto the dock where the speedboat is found. You can fire at Black Bass. Take the boat out to recover them. However, be careful; if you fire too many shots Del Lago will eat you at the end of the dock.
Jacob Bratek.

Hint: Perfect score:
If you are trying to get a "Perfect" 100% hit rate, then you must consider the following. Be absolutely certain that you are on target. Do not shoot from far off unless you are aiming with the rifle. Also, do not do any "subquests", or go for any treasures or Spinels that require you to shoot them down (for example, the Blue Medallion quest, the Brass Pocket Watch, etc.) If you miss, it will count against you. Also, as soon as an enemy makes a "grunt" sound, it indicates that they are dead. Do not get trigger happy, as this will lower your hit rate percentage. Do not use the Chicago Typewriter for this quest. It fires too quickly. You must be very careful to fire only one shot for most of the beginning enemies until you reach the Castle, where two shots with the Chicago Typewriter will kill most anything.

Hint: Save ammunition:
Use your knife to disarm bear traps. Get near it and aim the knife down at the bear trap. Then, swing it. The trap will be disarmed. Note: Do not do this on the laser trip bomb.
David How Shing Koy.

Use the following trick to avoid being harmed and save ammunition in the first village. When you first go into the village, run past the villagers. Go into the first house on your right. Quickly kick the door open, then let it shut. Shoot the door twice or more just above the door handle. A hole will open, and you can now knife the villagers without being harmed even if they throw their weapons. The chainsaw man will not appear even if you go into the house with the shotgun, but only if you have killed all of the enemies first. You can now grab all the items and roam around the village freely.

When you begin the Chapter 1 (Daytime) and fight the first Ganado, he is in a house wielding an hatchet. Wait until he walks up to your character. If you read his attacks well enough, step forward quickly in front of him. Do not run. Then, move back about five to eight steps. He will swing and miss. Quickly unsheathe your knife and aim at his face. He should be almost touching you when he attacks. When he holds his face in pain you should be able to kick him. He should now be on the ground. Run up to him and use your knife again. Aim at him and slash until he is dead. Use this strategy only on Ganados with knives, hatchets, and small sickles. Do not use it when you are surrounded. On Ganados without weapons aim you r knife at head height and start slashing when they are about four to seven steps away. Then, kick while they are holding their face. Slash them while they are on the ground. For Ganados with pitch forks, wait until they are about to swing then run past them. Turn around then run up to him. His back should be facing you. Aim at head height with your knife and repeat the kicking and slashing technique while he is on the ground. Do not use this strategy in crowded areas with more than five or six Ganados. Also, do not use it when facing Doctor Salvador, the Chainsaw Maniac, or the Chainsaw Sisters.When you have three or four Ganados in front close together to you, shoot the Ganado in the center in the head with a pistol or TMP. The Ganado will hold his face. Run up and kick him, then it will hit and damage anyone who has fallen down. They should now be in the relatively same place, allowing you to slash all three of them with your knife.
Dana McGlynn.

Try save the maximum ammunition you have. When fighting normal enemies, you can get rid of them easily with the handgun. The shotgun, rifle, or Magnum should be saved for Bosses (or special enemies, like the Regenerators). Use the shotgun only when you are surrounded or at huge mobs and cannot stop the enemies with the handgun.
Lord Sephiroth.

Always aim for the Ganados, Los Illuminados, and soldier's heads when fighting them, and at a close distance. Wait until they are about to attack you and shoot they heads. They will step back, holding they faces. Then, run to them and press Action to kick them away.
Lord Sephiroth.

The knife is your trump card against normal enemies, and for saving ammunition. After giving one single shot to their heads and kicking them away, run to them. Take out your knife and slash them in the ground. If you are skilled enough with the knife, you can always try slashing their faces instead of shooting.
Lord Sephiroth.

Use the following trick to defeat villagers while saving ammunition. First, shoot a villager in the knee to make him kneel. Then, walk up to him and kick him. Next, shoot him in the head. This should kill him. This may also work with other enemies.

Hint: 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.
Martijn Muis.

Hint: 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 10,000 Pesetas.
Cloud Strife.

When trying to get the Pearl Pendant, you do not need to press A repeatedly. Instead, look for the stick which is holding the well's lid up. Shoot it and it will close without you having to try to grab it.
Kyle Decker.

Hint: 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.
Evil Barney.

Hint: 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.
Kevin James.

The Golden Egg is the best healing item, as it gives you a full heal and only takes one space in your case.

When you first get in the farm, do not leave until you get at least two eggs from the chickens. Sometimes if you are lucky, they can five you Golden Eggs. The Snakes found in some wooden boxes can also drop Golden Eggs as well.
Lord Sephiroth.

Hint: 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 proximity.
Teague Ense.

Hint: 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.
Max Richter.

Hint: Use egg to kick people:
Toss an egg at a Ganado's face. They will hold their face, letting you get in a kick. Note: Do not do this in a crowd or you will get hit.
keith marstiller.

Hint: Mine Thrower ammunition:
It is possible to find ammunition for the Mine Thrower. Kill any normal enemy with the Mine Thrower to yield one dart for ammunition.
Aristotle Shadol.

Get the Chicago Typewriter and a Mine Thower. Just have those weapons and nothing else. Use your Chicago Typewriter, and when you kill people you will sometimes get Mine Thrower ammunition.
rob & deb.

Hint: Crowd control with the TMP:
Shoot out the legs of everyone, then unload on their heads while they are lying on their faces.

Hint: Saving ammunition with the TMP:
Do not hold A . Just keep tapping it.
Corey Phillips and mark.

Hint: Recommended weapons:
In terms of power, the Red 9 is the most powerful handgun. It has about power 6 or 8 when you get the exclusive upgrade for it. It has decent speed, and good capacity (20 rounds full upgrade). The Punisher is good for crowd control because of the penetrating rounds, but otherwise use the Red 9. The normal 9mm Handgun in the beginning is average, although it is best with headshots because the exclusive upgrade raises the critical headshot ratio. The Blacktail has no obvious weaknesses or strengths, and is a very versatile gun. The best handgun is the Red 9. Its power, speed, and lots of ammunition make it a very good choice. Fully upgraded, the Red 9 has about the power of the shotgun in every round.

Do not waste your time going through Mercenaries mode solely for the Handcannon. It has limited ammunition and takes too long to acquire and upgrade to usefulness. The Infinite Rocket Launcher is much better, as it kills enemies faster, kills more enemies at a time, and has the bonus of going into first person zoom mode. Also, get the Chicago Typewriter. When large groups of enemies get too close, the IRL explosion could kill you. The fully upgraded Broken Butterfly is recommended over the Handcannon. Ammunition is much more plentiful, especially on replays. Also, the reload and general feel of the Broken Butterfly is preferred over the Handcannon. It also forces you to play strategically, due to its limitations (occasional ammunition scarcity, reload times, etc.). Avoiding the Handcannon gives you more opportunities and money to have fun with your original weapons. Upgrading the original shotgun, pistol, and rifle, and playing through are generally more fun than going through Mercenaries mode plus the main game just to upgrade one weapon.
Joseph Tucker.

Do not upgrade the starting handgun. If you find and shoot all fifteen Blue Medallions (seven at the farm and eight at the cemetery), you will get a Punisher with a Lv2 Firepower (1.1) from the Merchant.
Lord Sephiroth.

The Red 9 is the best and strongest handgun. Do not waste time buying the Blacktail. Do not forget to buy Red 9 Stock.
Lord Sephiroth.

The Striker may be a little weaker than the Riot Gun, but can fire multiples enemies in spread. Use it in a very close distance or the shots will not be very effective.
Lord Sephiroth.

The Broken Butterfly is the best and strongest Magnum. Do not waste time buying the Killer7. Do not buy the Broken Butterfly; you can find one in Salazar's Castle later.
Lord Sephiroth.

Do not buy the TMP and/or the Mine Thrower. They are just waste of money. You can survive with no problems only with handgun, shotgun, rifle, or Magnum. The Mine Thrower is useful against large groups of enemies; but that is why you have the shotgun.
Lord Sephiroth.

Save the Rocket Launcher that you find in Salazar's Castle to use against his Guardian in the Sewers (one of the big hooded monsters that follows Salazar everywhere).
Lord Sephiroth.

The following is a list of the strongest. Note: These guns must be fully upgraded for best results.
John Fogg.

Red 9 (5.0 firepower)
Shotgun (maintains power from far distances)
P.R.L 412 Laser Cannon
Chicago Typewriter (TMP-like firing rate, 10.0 firepower)
Semi Auto Rifle (fastest shooting rifle, 15.0 firepower)
Mine Thrower (Obtains homing Mine Darts)
Gunpowder Bowgun
Handgun (x4 chance of headshot)
Broken Butterfly (50.0 firepower)

Hint: 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.

Hint: Infinite Rocket Launcher:
Do not bother with Chicago Typewriter. Buy the Infinite Rocket Launcher instead. You can get 100% accuracy as the rocket launcher does depend on your accuracy. Fire one handgun round at the beginning, then use the launcher and you will get 100% accuracy. also.
bob jones.

Hint: 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.

Hint: 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 floor.
Chris Hess.

Hint: Hidden merchant:
Note: He can only be reached after fighting Del Lago. After fighting Del Lago, you will pass out in a shack. After waking up, go back into your boat and go directly at a blue flame. This will be the merchant's secret shop. He does not have much to sell other then what he already does, but he has items and ammo around the area. Go outside his shop and look around. You will find a box that you can push. Push it away and you will find a ladder to your right. Make your way to the roof of the merchant's shop. More boxes which you can push will make a path to a gem to be set into another item. Also up there is a hole in the roof where you can jump down and find some sniper bullets, that are next to the merchant himself. Also, check all the flames around the area. One of them will have an item in it which you must shoot and pick up.
Danny Veng.

Hint: 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.

Hint: 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.
Matt Peeler.

Hint: Shoot before you jump:
To avoid getting into close-quarters situations, especially with dynamite-toting Ganados about, wait you are just out of sight at the top of the ladder before jumping down if there are any enemies close by. Usually they will attempt to climb the ladder to wherever you are. Once they reach the top, it takes a moment for them to get off the ladder. Pick them off at your leisure. This is much easier than dancing around avoiding thrown hatchets and the occasional arrow. It is also fun to knock the ladder down with several of them climbing up. The same applies for enemies lurking around hallway corners. Wait for them to peek around the corner and shoot them before they can mount any offense. Always try to stash Ashley in a safe place before fighting a mob of enemies.

Hint: Aim faster:
Use the D-pad and Analog-stick together to aim faster than normal.

Hint: 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.
Andy L.

Hint: 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 for boxes.

Hint: Finding items:
To find items, smash all of the crates with either your knife or a gun.
Matt Peeler.

Hint: 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.

When fighting Ganados, shoot them a few times then use your knife to slash at least twice (rarely even once works). This seems to make it more likely that they will drop ammunition.
bob jones.

Hint: Saving ammunition:
This trick really only works up until you get to the castle where the enemies get stronger. The easiest way to save ammunition is to use your knife frequently. Most of the enemies have knives, axes, pitchforks, all sorts of melee weapons. Instead of trying to shoot them, just step back from the attack so that they stumble. You will get the command to kick them. Do so, then you can just knife them. By time they stand up and are ready to kill you, you will have knifed them to death.
The Bam.

The following trick works well with stronger enemies. Instead of going for multiple body shots trying to kill them, either hit their knees so they drop then kick them down, or shoot them in the face or head so that they grab their face and stumble around. Then, kick them. While they are down unload headshots. It does more damage, and it has a chance to blow their head off ultimately saving ammunition.
The Bam.

Wait on the other side of a door with an enemy. Wait until you see the door rattle from them trying to open it then kick open the door. This will injure any enemy within range. Take a few steps back, then shoot one round into any enemy that is too close to the door (on their feet) so that the door will close again and repeat. This is useful when you are low on ammunition or do not want to waste any rounds.
bob jones.

Stand at the top of the ladder with Leon or Ada. This allows you to knife enemies as they climb up. Continue swinging the knife and the enemy will climb into your swing, fall off, then climb back into it until they die. You can then jump down to grab their items. Be careful of enemies on the same level or floor as you. Also, be careful of the soldiers with machine guns. They can jump straight up without using the ladder.
Ben Seaver.

Hint: Weapon upgrades:
When buying upgrades for your gun, always look at your gun information beforehand. For example, if your gun has a gunpower of 10.8 and you see that the upgrade reads lvl 2 --> 10.5, you are basically losing out and wasting money.
jeff fisher.

Hint: Bird nests:
If you are low on ammunition, find a tree and check for a bird's nest. Most bird nests have ammunition, but some have treasures or Green Herbs.

Hint: Blue Medallions:
After the first merchant, the medallions will appear on your map as blue dots. Ten of them gives you a free Punisher. All 15 of them will give you a free upgrade on it. This will save 10,000 Pesetas if you decide to use this gun.
bob jones.

Hint: Los Illuminados Pendant and Spinels:
After you come out of the sewers and are on the second floor of the room with the first shooting range, go to the first chandelier but do not jump. Instead, throw a hand grenade into the group of zealots (monks in black). There will also be a head zealot in a red outfit and a skull cap. He is the one with the Los Illuminados pendant. After you throw the hand grenade, wait about two seconds and throw a flash grenade, then immediately jump down. If the head zealot is still alive, kill him first then kill any other remaining zealots. You will receive a Los Illuminados Pendant from the head zealot and a Spinel from all the normal zealots.

Hint: Crows:
Look out for crows. They sometimes drop valuable items and are usually found in groups. To kill crows, shoot them from a distance. If you are close and there are other crows nearby they will fly away. An easier way to kill a group of them is to toss a flash grenade into their midst and watch the items drop.
The Big Cheesy Monster.

Hint: 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.

Hint: 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.
Brandon Binda.

Hint: Rainbow:
At the end of the game, as Leon and Ashley fall into the water on the speedboat, you can see a rainbow for a few seconds.

Hint: 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.

Hint: Leon speaking Spanish:
To hear Leon speak Spanish, go to where he fights Chief Mendez (Big Cheese). Dodge his move and listen to Leon. He will say "Esta Luego" although his version is "Esta Loego".

Hint: 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.
Scott OMalley.

Hint: 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 million Pesatas.

Hint: 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.
mark rivenburgh.

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.

Hint: 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.
Efrain Esquivel.
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.
Efrain Esquivel.
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 after you.
Efrain Esquivel.
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.
Efrain Esquivel.
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.
Efrain Esquivel.

Hint: Bottle caps:
To unlock all the bottle caps you need all headshots. Try to make every shot count. A headshot to a male villager is worth 100 points. A headshot to a female villager is worth 200 points. Do not miss. If you shoot five consecutive targets you will get a chance at the bonus target in the back for 500 points. When the background opens up, quickly shoot at the bonus target. You should have no trouble if you are using the TMP. If a group of targets pop up at once and one of them is holding a dynamite stick, aim for the dynamite. This will blow up all the targets and a Salazar bonus target will appear, which is worth 500 points. The first time that the option for game B becomes available, get over a few steps to the right of the bell, then turn slightly towards the bell. Do all your aiming from here. This will give you the opportunity to hit the target that pops up directly behind the Ashley target. Try using the TMP. Because Leon holds it at the hip, he tends to aim steadier with it than with any other gun available to you. The rifle takes too long to reload if you miss. You only have to score 3,000 points or more. It will become easier as you memorize the current pattern of targets.

Hint: Interesting death sequences:
Note: Save before each encounter before trying to see the following death scenes.

"It": "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.
Teague Ense.
Betrayal: When you are in the cabin surrounded by Ganados, shoot Luis Sera about five to eight times. An intermission sequence will begin.
Teague Ense.
Chief Mendez: In the barn fight, do not evade his grab in the intermission sequence.
Teague Ense.
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.
Teague Ense.
Crocodile: When killed, do not cut the rope.
Teague Ense.
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.
David Hall.
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.
Michael Schemitsch.
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 die.
David Hall
Giant insects: Let them vomit on you.
Teague Ense.
Knife fight: At the end, let him press the knife through the cavity.
Teague Ense.
Molotov cocktails: In the beginning of the game, go up the ladder into the tower and wait the villagers want to burn you alive.
Teague Ense.
Prison Boss: Have low life and let him kill you with the first hit of his charge. He should impale you twice.
Regenerators: Both normal and spiked varieties have their own style of killing Leon.
Teague Ense.
Trap door floor: Salazaar will enjoy sending the spikes impaling Scott Kennedy.
Teague Ense.
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.
Teague Ense.
Decapitation: After 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.
Jacob Walsh.
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.
Robert Guetlech.
In Chapters 1 and 2 when the Ganado with the axe comes in, do not press anything. The Ganado will cut Leon and Luis and the screen will be covered in blood.

Hint: 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.
Teague Ense.

After the intermission sequence with the Big Cheese stating that Leon has similar blood to the villagers, play through the next area but then back track. Try to go through the same house again to see another intermission sequence with the Big Cheese. This is the sequence with the first appearance of the "woman in the red dress".
Bobby Nickens.

Hint: Hiding the number of times killed ratio:
To avoid seeing a number of times killed, continue until you get to a chapter end. When instructed to save, cancel the saving process.
Joe Matera.

Alternately, when you die and are prompted to continue, answer "No". You will be sent back to where you last saved. Make sure the location where you last saved is close by. The next time you complete a chapter, it will have no deceased record.
Joe Matera.

Hint: P.N. 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 levels.

Hint: Make Leon Heely:
Note: A controller with a turbo feature is required for this trick. When you are walking through any part of the game, hold B and turn on the controller's turbo feature. If done correctly, it should look as if Leon is heelying.

Glitch: Leon's X-ray vision:
Unlock Leon's special costume, then complete Chapter 1-3. During 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.

Glitch: Rocket launcher stuck in Leon's side:
After completing the game at least once, buy an infinite rocket launcher from the merchant. When you reach one of those bombs that are tripped by wire, equip the infinite rocket launcher. While it is equipped, get close to the wire, pull out your knife, and trip the wire. This will send you flying back, and when you stand up you will have a rocket launcher clearly sticking out of your side.
Justin Mulligan

Glitch: Stick hand Leon:
To do this trick you will need a shotgun, the first Merchant you meet in the game, and enough money to buy your shotgun back. Have your shotgun equipped with a full clip. Talk to the first merchant you encounter. After he shows you his wares, select the "Sell" screen on the Merchants main screen. Scroll down to your shotgun. Sell your shotgun to the merchant then press the B(2). Immediately after you press B the second time, hold B and press Analog-stick Up to move forward in a run just for a little bit. Do not turn. Come to a stop anywhere, but not when you are directly in front of a wall. You can move the camera around to get a better look at your stick like hands by using the C-stick. Leon appears to have had his hands amputated and replaced by very long black sticks holding him up. This only works at the first merchant in Chapter 1-2.

Glitch: 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.
Chris Hess.

Glitch: 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.
Kelly Erickson.

Glitch: Switched arm:
When you fight Krauser with his mutated arm in story mode, he is using his left hand. However, when using him in the Mercenaries, use his muted arm. Notice he is now using his right arm, and not his left like in story mode.

Glitch: 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 chapter.

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.

Immediately before the big chief Boss battle, return to the caves where you found the Yellow Catseye. Go up the big ladder. Then, have Leon jump down and aim the rifle up. If done correctly she will just stand there and not call you a pervert as usual.
connor gilbert.

Buy the rifle and scope attachment from the merchant. Then, climb up a large ladder, kick it down, then jump off. Ashley will be standing there, and you can zoom and look up her skirt without her noticing.
Ethan Pomeroy.

When Ashley is in her normal uniform, have a sniper rifle (for example, the standard Bolt Action Lee-Enfield), and find a high ladder. First, go up the ladder. Ashley will follow. Then, turn around and jump back down again, leaving Ashley atop the ladder. Back up slightly, take out a gun and aim up at Ashley. If she covers herself and yells at you, you must find a taller ladder. If she does not yell, take out your sniper rifle and aim at her. She should not yell because she cannot see you. Zoom in and you will be able to see Ashley red heart panties.
Icarus Echelon.

Glitch: Mysterious object:
When in the castle sewers, after defeating Salazar's "right hand", get to the elevator as prompted. Before operating, aim your weapon up. Notice that there is a mysterious object spinning above Leon's head. Move around and aim up again; it follows you.
Eli Tallbear.

Glitch: Run through lasers on the island:
When you get to the lasers after fighting Krauser with Action Commands, go to the laser room. Once you get to the first set of lasers that move towards you, run through them. You should go through and skip out on the lasers that are "broken". If you keep running toward the end, but do not push the button yet, turn around and you will see that the "broken" lasers are there and you just skipped two Action Commands. Note: You will have to do the "broken" lasers if you go back to them. This may require a few attempts, or you may have to go through it the normal way once and take the emerald on the seat and reload via "Restart from the last Continue Point".

Glitch: Misspelling:
At the beginning of the game after the cars crash into the river, press A. The description reads "The brigde is out", with the word "bridge" misspelled.
Logan Livengood.

Glitch: Wrong dialogue:
On your second playthrough have the characters wear their alternate costumes. Complete the sequence when you first get into a knife fight with Krauser. At the end, Ada shoots the knife out of Krauser's hand and he turns to her and refers to her as the "bitch in the red dress". Ada is not wearing her red dress, and that dialogue no longer makes sense.

Note: You must have access to the alternate costumes for this glitch. After you see Chief Mendez the second time in the two story cabin, turn around and go back into the room where you found the Insignia Key. An intermission sequence will begin. You will see Ada Wong shoot Mendez from the window. After the sequence ends, press A on the window. It should say, "A woman in red... somehow so familiar", even though Ada is wearing a black uniform.

Get to the part where you are in Salazar's Garden (with the zombie dogs). When you take out your "walkie-talkie", wait until you see Leon talking to his self. His last sentence is "There an intruder besides me?".
