After successfully completing the game once, highlight
the "Extra New Game" option at the main menu and press
Up(2), Down(2), Left, Right, Left,
Right, Circle, X. Heather will sigh after
you choose a difficulty and riddle level to confirm correct code
entry. In some scenes when you see Douglas, he will be wearing
Successfully complete all ten extreme levels.
Extra options menu:
Press L1 or R1 at the options screen
to display an extra options menu
Beginner fighting difficulty setting:
Intentionally die twice during game play under the
normal fighting difficulty setting. The fighting difficulty setting
can now be set to "Beginner" in the extra options menu.
Life display option:
Successfully complete the game under the hard difficulty
setting to unlock "Life Display" at the extra options
Hint: UFO ending:
Successfully complete game and unlock the Heather Beam
weapon. The Heather Beam is a special weapon which you can only
use if Heather or Cheryl is not holding any weapon. Kill more
than thirty enemies with the Heather Beam weapon before you get
to your apartment. If done correctly the game will actually end
there with a new ending sequence.
Hint: Possessed ending:
Get over 4,000 points after you have already completed
the game once before.
Hint: Extra interactive scenes:
To get extra scenes while playing the game, use a memory
card with at least one finished saved game file from Silent
Hill 2. New interactions with some objects and new scenes
will now be available. These scenes are similar or with some type
of reference to the previous game. For example, Heather trying
to look for something stuck into the toilet in the mall.
After completing Silent Hill 2, use that same memory card
while playing Silent Hill 3 to get flashbacks. The flashback
When you examine the second stall in the 1F ladies room in the
When you examine the mail boxes across from Daisy Villa Apartments.
When you examine the poster at Heaven's Night Bar.
When you examine the small section of fence on the north side
of the Brookhaven Hospital's Roof Area.
Hint: Death scenes:
There are multiple areas in the game where special
death scenes occur for your character if you trigger them.
In the hospital, allow yourself to be killed by the nurses. The
screen will go black, and then it will show Heather lying on the
ground, as a male doctor zombie shambles up, grabs and widely
spreads her legs, and drags her off into the darkness.
At the final area, after Claudia kills Vincent and the exchange
between Heather and Claudia ensues, equip a weapon and attack
Claudia with it. Heather will then begin to bleed out and birth
the "God". This is not really an ending, as it counts
as a "Game Over", but is a gruesome ending nonetheless.
While in the subway, hop down onto the tracks and run all the
way to the end of them, into the tunnel. Heather will be run over
by the train, accompanied by nauseating sound effects.
When on the train, simply turn around and exit through the door
in the rear of any car. Heather will be on the very end of the
train. If you move forward towards the edge, a first-person cut
scene will occur in which Heather falls from the train onto the
tracks, and dies.
There are other death scenes located in specific areas throughout
the game. Look for areas that seem significant (locations from
previous games, for instance) and allow yourself to be killed.
Hint: Advancing to Extreme X easily:
Defeating the final Boss on Extreme X is a nightmare.
However, there is way to get around it. Do the Revenge ending
repeatedly and you are on your way to Level X. The only Boss monster
that you should encounter is the worm that resembles a mutated
Johnson on Sundays. Beware, your only weapon during this quest
is the slow, fairly strong Sexy Beam. Become familiar with using
the Sexy Beam, use the True Heather Beam (R2 + X)
on dogs and flying monsters, and use the Heather Ray (R2
+ X(2) or Forward + R2 + X) on the
giant monsters and the squirming little ones. Remember you can
recover your stamina by exiting and reentering a room. Stamina
is a must during this quest
Hint: Unlock up to ten Extreme Action Mode
Finish the game in hard action mode to unlock Extreme
Action Mode 1 (an increased difficulty mode). Finish Extreme Action
Mode 1 to unlock Mode 2, etc. Continue doing this until you unlock
the last one, Extreme Action Mode X. If you finish this last mode
you will be rewarded with the God Of Thunder T-shirt.
Hint: Bookstore: Puzzle:
When putting the books out of order, the solution is
4 5 2 3 1, under the normal action and normal riddle difficulty
The solution under the hard difficulty setting is 8 3 5 2.
The solution under the easy difficulty setting is 8 9 6 4.
Hint: Brookhaven Hospital: Second lobby
The password is an easy math problem. The first digit
is greater than the second digit. The second digit is the third
digit multiplied by two. The third digit is half of the first
digit. The solution is 8 6 3 4, under the normal action and normal
riddle difficulty settings.
The solution under the easy difficulty setting is 4 6 3 9.
The solution under the hard difficulty setting is 4 8 9 6.
Hint: Brookhaven Hospital: Third lobby
For this, go to floor B, then to the storeroom . Go
to the end of the room and take a photo of the bloody wall with
a shelf near it. The solution is 4 7 5 6, under the normal action
and normal riddle difficulty settings.
The solution under the hard difficulty setting is 1 3 2 8.
Hint: Brookhaven Hospital: Crematory puzzle:
The solution under the hard riddle difficulty setting
is 9 2 7 1.
The solution under the normal difficulty setting is: 9 3 6 7.
Hint: Brookhaven Hospital: Suitcase on
Look at the clock near the bed. The time is the password.
For example, if the clock shows the 5h:6m, you would enter 0 5
0 6. The solution is 0 7 1 9, under the normal action and normal
riddle difficulty settings.
Note: The clock should be read in military time. For example,
if the alarm clock reads as 2:14 then it should be entered as
14:14 on the suitcase.
Hint: Brookhaven Hospital: 33rd floor lock
The solution to the puzzle is about some birds . The
order is Wren, Owl, Linnet, Sparrow. The solution is 9 2 7 1 under
the hard riddle difficulty setting.
Hint: Brookhaven Hospital: Bloody mode
33rd floor lock password:
After hospital changes to bloody mode, you can go to
the 33rd floor. At the top of the room is a stony picture on the
wall . This picture shows you the order of the digits. For example:
I is number of this bed is digit 1
II is number of this bed is digit 2
III is number of this bed is digit 3
IV is number of This bed is digit 4
Where the digits are indicate the number of beds that you see
bloody. The solution is 8 2 3 7, under the normal action and normal
riddle difficulty settings.
Hint: Brookhaven Hospital: Perfume item:
In the hospital level in Hard or Normal mode, you can
obtain a perfume item in the same locker as the nail polish remover.
The only use the perfume has is that it attracts monsters to you
when you equipped. It is only useful if you are trying to get
a high score by killing as many enemies as possible.
Hint: Shopping Mall: Get Past the bats/moths
in Hard mode:
In Hard mode, you will encounter some bats/moths that
block your path. Go back out to the hallway and look at the fan.
There is a switch which you can use. Use it to turn off the fan,
then go back into the hallway with the bats/moths. Use the pail
to mix the detergent and bleach found elsewhere in the mall, then
turn the fans back on to get rid of the poisonous gas that is
created by mixing the two.
Hint: Subway: Vengeful ghost:
When initially reaching the subway station, look for
a cluster of vending machines for coins and tickets. On top of
one of those machines is a newspaper telling of a man who was
killed, presumably by accident, by a train. Later, once you begin
descending levels, you will come across a stairwell that has an
occult magazine lying on the ground. Read it, and it will describe
how the ghosts of those who commit suicide or those who died by
accident often come back to haunt the places of their death, and
will either come to people for help or take revenge on them. If
you read both of these articles and descend the steps, Heather
will walk down to the subway track, and a small intermission sequence
will ensue which has a ghost push Heather onto the train tracks.
You must turn around quickly and climb back up, or you will be
killed by an oncoming train. Note: That this occurred in the Extra
New Game mode.
To have this happen in Normal mode, you only need to look at the
newspaper on the ticket vending machines for the sequence to happen.
You do not have to look at the magazine.
Hint: Order of tarot cards at the last
door of the game:
Arrange the cards as follows in the normal action and
normal riddle difficulty settings:
Northwest position: Eye Of The Night
Northeast position: Moon
West position: High Priestess
East position: Fool
South position: Hanged Man
Arrange the cards as follows in the hard difficulty setting.
Northwest position: The High Priestess
North position: The Eye Of The Night
Center position: The Fool
East position: The Moon
Southwest position: The Hanged Man
The riddle is a problem with Roman numerals. The Priestess is
number II (2) as read on the book about tarots. The Eye Of The
Night is XXII (22). The Fool is 0. The Moon is XVIII (18). The
Hanged Man is XII (12). Look in the book of drawings to see that
XVIII can stay only in the east position (the last letter is I
instead of L); XII is only in the southwest position; II is only
in the northwest position; 0 and XXII have two places where they
can stay. Swap them until you find their correct place.
On the easy difficulty setting, simply look at Alessa's Drawing
book for drawings representing the different cards and where they
should be put on the door.
Hint: Heather Beam:
Kill 333 enemies. Playing through the game several
times will achieve this.
Note: Wear the Transform costume to change the Heather Beam into
the Sexy Beam.
Hint: Life Bar:
Successfully complete the game under the hard action
and hard riddle difficulty settings to unlock the "Life Bar"
option at the extra options screen.
Hint: Keep running without stamina:
Equipping the Princess Heart costume will make Heather
able to keep running with no stamina remaining. However once you
stop, she will need to catch her breath. This is also useful for
the Heather Beam weapon, since it depends on how tired Heather
Hint: Heather looking dead:
Equipping the God Of Thunder costume allow Heather
to look like one of the evil Heathers in the Amusement Park. When
you get to the scene where Heather will "eat" her pendant,
you will see some kind of lettering on her fingers.
Hint: Defeating the last Boss with less
Equip the handgun and fire two shots. Note: One should
be fine, but fire two just in case. After Claudia bends over,
equip the Maul (spiked mace) and do the overhead attack by pressing
X hard. Since you will be invulnerable when Heather swings
the Maul, Claudia will not hit you with her Retaliation smack.
Note: Even though the swing is slow, Claudia will just wait for
Knife: Always with you.
Handgun: Obtained after an intermission sequence at the start
of the game.
Steel pipe: Located in the shopping mall, in the corner of the
cafe you unlock with the cooked key on the second floor.
Shotgun: Located in the subway station, in the train car.
Maul: Located in a room in the underground passage. It is stuck
in a table on the left side of the room along with the map of
Katana: Located on the fifth floor of the office building, in
a closet at the end of a hallway that you enter though the art
Stun gun: Located in Heather's bedroom at her apartment, in her
Submachine gun: Located in the hospital on the basement floor
near the elevator.
Hint: Special weapon locations:
Once you unlocked the following Special weapons they
can be found at their respective places:
Beam Saber: At the end of the hallway where you get the bookstore
key; hanging on the door.
Flamethrower-In Helen's Bakery (where you get the tongs); on the
Infinite Ammo Sub Machine Gun: Immediately after exiting out of
the bathroom window (after the start of the game) go left; it
is at the dead end.
Heather Beam: After obtaining it, you always have it. You can
use it when no weapon is equipped.
Hint: Boost bullet adjust and bonus weapons
When you get to the church and are ready solve the
children's room riddle (with the Tarot cards), save the game before
you do so. Then, complete the game, defeat the Boss and get to
the results screen. When you are done viewing your ranking, press
X to see what bonus you were awarded. If you killed more
enemies with a melee weapon, you will get a Beam Saber. If you
shot more enemies, you will get an infinite flamethrower. Save
the game in a new file -- do not overwrite your existing game
data. Return to the main title screen and select the "Load"
option. Load the saved game created before you killed the Boss.
Kill the boss again and skip the credits. When you get to the
results screen for the second time, the game will count you having
completed the game a the second time (because you already have
a completed game save data on you memory card). This is much faster
than actually going through the game multiple times to get bonus
weapons and increase your bullet adjust. Bullet adjust allows
you to double the amount of bullets you can get from a single
box, depending on how many times you completed the game. If you
did this trick three times you can triple the amount of bullets
you would normally get from a single box in very little time.
After the sewer, go to the apartment 5F. You will see
a room with a big hole. There is mattress near the hole. To the
right of it is a wall that that has a light blue color section.
Use a pipe to break the wall and get the silencer.
Hint: Unlock the Flamethrower and the Beam
Saber with just one game played completely:
To unlock these two extra-weapons without having to
play a new game from the beginning, save your game in the tarot-puzzle
room just before the last Boss. When you finish the game, you
will unlock one of the weapons (Flamethrower or Beam Saber). Save
your results. After this, load that previous saved game and finish
it again. You will now unlock the other weapon.
Hint: Unlock the Flamethrower, Beam Saber,
and Unlimited Sub Machine Gun with just one game played completely:
Finish the game and save your results. You should have
at least one special weapon unlocked (Beam Saber, Unlimited Sub
Machine Gun, or Flamethrower). Then, load your saved game again.
Finishing the game the second time with the same save will unlock
the Flamethrower (if you do not have it). Finish the game the
third time, but kill the last Boss, Claudia, with only melee weapons
such as the Maul or the Katana. After that, you will unlock the
Unlimited Sub Machine Gun. Note: If you do not have the Beam Saber,
then in the third time through kill the last Boss, Claudia, with
long range weapons such as the shotgun or the sub machine gun.
Hint: Heather Beam firing modes:
There are three ways to fire the Heather Beam. The
Homing Ray is only usable when Heather is not wearing the Princess
Heart costume, and can be done by holding X. The second
one is The Psycho Ball, which is usable anytime and can be done
by pressing X then pressing and holding X a second
time. The third one is Heather True-Beam, which is only usable
when Heather is wearing the Princess Heart or Transform costume,
and can be done by holding X.
Hint: Setting the ammo multiplier:
You can only set the ammo multiplier after successfully
completing the game at least once. Then, press Select to
go to the status menu, and go to the options menu. Press R1
or L1 to enter the extra options menu. You can now set
the ammo multiplier to any value. The ammo multiplier will set
the amount of any ammunition you pick by a multiplying its current
ammo value to the number you set in the bullet multiplier extra
option. For example, when you pick a magazine of 32 bullets for
the machine gun, you will instead get 64 bullets when you set
the bullet multiplier to 2X.
Hint: Ammo multiplier 5X:
Finish the game once, then load your saved game again.
Finish the game again nine times using the same saved game. When
you start a new game or extra new game, enter the extra options
menu. You can now set the bullet multiplier option to 5X. When
you pick any ammunition, it will be multiplied nine times more
than the normal amount.
Hint: Ranking system:
At the end of the game after the credits, you are shown
the ranking you earned. Your ranking is determined by many factors,
such as the time needed to complete the game and Boss, how many
monsters you killed, how much damage you took, etc. At the bottom
of the screen you will see two rows of stars. Every large star
represents ten small stars, Use these stars to calculate your
final ranking out of 10.0. For example, if you got seven large
stars and eight small stars, your ranking would be 7.8.
Hint: Blood color change:
You can change the color of the blood in the extra
options menu. You can set the blood color to green, and when you
get hit or attack a monster it will instead spill green blood
rather than the usual red.
Hint: Getting Gold and Silver Pipes:
In the place where you use the dryer to kill off some
tentacles, walk to the water. Make sure you do not fall and press
X. Answer the questions truthfully to get both pipes as
well as your steel pipe back.
In the underground tunnels after the subway, when you go into
the room with the monster that pulls you underwater, go over to
the ledge. Stay away from the bridge. Equip the metal pipe that
you should have picked up in the mall. Press X near the
ledge. You will be prompted to drop the metal pipe. Select "Yes",
and Heather will drop it and start an intermission sequence. An
angel figure will appear asking if you dropped a gold pipe. Answer
"Yes" and she will call you a liar. Answer "No"
and she will ask you if you dropped a silver clean pipe. Answer
"Yes" and you will be called a liar. Answer "No"
and she will ask if you dropped a dirty pipe. Answer "Yes"
and she will give you all three of the pipes. When that is all
done, you can drop all three but nothing will happen and you cannot
get them back.
When the intermission sequence between Claudia and
Vincent is finished and Vincent dies, use the necklace.
Hint: Die by getting pulled in water:
After getting in the sewer, you should find a area
with a door that has a warning sign next to it. Read the diary
on the desk. It will have information revealing that a monster
killed his friends and a little more on how to kill it. Save the
game and go across the bridge without getting rid of it. A large
tentacle will grab your leg and drag you in the water.
Hint: Stop intermission sequences from
resetting (demo version):
Keep rotating the Left Analog-stick.
Hint: Clean bunnies:
In the introduction at the Lakeside Amusement Park
(nightmare), when you look at all the bunny costumes they are
covered in blood. When you enter the gift shop, you can see that
only the pink bunnies are covered in blood, and the rest are clean.
Glitch: Pause canceling:
Almost all action scenes can be canceled (such as when
you are going up or down from an elevator) with Start.
However, there is a point in the final area where the lift scene
can be canceled, but it will pause the game first. When you press
Start again, the game will resume, but the lift scene will
