When you press Triangle, Ash will say a funny
comment. Later in the game, he gains the ability to say different
comments. For example, when in Downtown Dearborn, he says, "What
time is it? Bah, what do you care, you're dead." In the Outskirts
of Dearborn he is incapable of saying this.
Hint: Defeating Eldridge:
Wait until he is walking toward a barrel and gets close
to it. Then, shoot the barrel and it will explode, flipping him
over. Start shooting him after he flips over. Later in the fight,
he will start charging you. When this happens, run along the walls
until he runs into one, then start shooting him.
Hint: Defeating Nathaniel Payne:
Use your shovel like a baseball bat. Hold Square
and release when he throws a chunk of rock at you. Do not get
the rock confused with the energy ball that is thrown.
Hint: Defeating Trisha:
When she opens her mouth, throw a piece of dynamite
Hint: Gut a Deadite with the chainsaw:
Tap X, once more quickly, then hold and release.
Ash will pull back and the blood will start flowing. Also, hit
the hand weapon slot to do a combo. If you have dynamite, you
can stick it in its mouth and it will run and blow up.
Hint: Escape when surrounded by Deadites:
Use the chainsaw. Hold X for about half a second,
then release. Ash will spin around and cut all of the Deadites.
Hint: Dearborn police station:
When you get to the Dearborn police station, the yard
where you need to go is surrounded by Deadites. You do not have
to kill any of them. First, find the Spell Scroll that allows
you to posses a Deadite for a limited amount of time,.This spell
takes up three mana. Posses a Deadite, then run to the other side
of the yard. You will find the Cypher and a envelope that you
must take to the auto body shop. Note: The police Deadites will
not recognize you as Ash, but the others will.
Hint: Finding the silver on Civil War Dearborn:
To get the silver you need to close the vortexes on
Civil War Dearborn level. Go to the graveyard. Once there, go
to the location that you had to insert the pentagonal key into
the wall to reach Eldridge on the Colonial Dearborn level. There
will be four silver pieces in the shape of bars near the opposite
Hint: Finding the crystals at the museum:
First, get a device that beeps when you are near a
crystal. To do this, go to the picture of Nathaniel Payne and
place the two pots you found in the basement there. The picture
will open and you will get it. The first crystal is in the small
Civil War section near the guard. Blow open one of the houses.
The second crystal is under one of the ice age animals. It is
the one up in a cave. The third crystal is in the center of the
sun diagram. The final crystal is in the corner of the Egyptian
section. This last crystal has a map behind it with a symbol by
each section. Remember the symbols because they represent the
order that the crystals go into the wall.
Hint: Crystal order at the museum:
The order to insert the crystals is red, yellow, blue,
Hint: Kill and not get hurt by Deadites:
When you are killing Deadites, Zombies, etc. with your
chainsaw, impale one with your it. Notice that the other deadites
will not attack as you do this. Then when your impaling is over,
quickly impale another Deadite, and repeat.
Hint: Easy Deadite decapitation:
Use your shovel, tap Square(2), and hold it
on a third press, then release. This will cause the Deadite's
head to bend sideways. Then. hold Square for about half
a second and release. This will usually send the Deadite's head
Hint: Save ammunition:
If you stand behind a police officer and Deadites come
near you, he will shoot it and you can collect the item that it
leaves behind without wasting any ammunition. This also works
When you cast your strength spell, wait until the Deadites are
close enough. If they are in the correct position, the little
wave on the ground of your strength spell stuns the Deadites,
and makes them easy pickings for the chainsaw or other weapon.
This also helps save ammunition.
