Hints: 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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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, hit X until you get back in. Repeat this process until the intermission
sequence starts and the monster retreats.
Hints: 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.
Hints: Defeating Krauser:
To easily defeat Krauser's final form, when his arm is mutated just use your knife whenever his guard
is down. It is possible to defeat him in a little over a minute under the pro difficulty setting
by using this technique.
When fighting Krauser, instead of wasting ammunition, use your knife. You should only have to hit him
four or five times before he dies.
Get the mine gun and the rocket launcher first. During his final form, shoot him in the knee with a mine.
Immediately take out the rocket launcher and aim. Once the mine explodes, shoot him with the
rocket launcher and he will die.
When fighting Krauser and he uses his blade arm, use a strong gun to hit his legs. When he is down, slash
him with your knife. Do this four times and he will die.
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.
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.
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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: Defeating the Enemy Regenerator and Iron Maiden:
You do not need a special scope to kill them. Buy the Killer 7 Magnum and use it on them. After three
or four shots, they will go down. Shoot it in the sheet until there is a hole. Then, shoot its head.
After that, the body will explode then the legs will fall over and leave 5,000 gold.
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.
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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: Defeating Salazar:
Note: This trick requires the Basic Sniper Rifle fully upgraded with the Exclusive Upgrade. Make a note
of the dodge actions at various times during this battle. Start off by running to the side of the
platform on the top. Quickly shoot the tentacle in front of you, making sure that you dodge if
needed. With the upgraded sniper, shoot the tentacle retracts with one shot. Ignore Salazar's eye
and other tentacles. Only focus on the tentacle closest to you. After some point, Salazar himself
will emerge from the upper back of the monster. Use your sniper to pick him off. After you get about
two shots in, he will go back into hiding. By now that tentacle should have returned. Shoot it
once to take care of it for awhile. Repeat the process of shooting Salazar and the tentacle, and the
battle will cause Leon to take little damage. If you run out of ammunition for the sniper rifle,
either drop down and look for more in the barrels [but be prepared to fight the spider-like parasites
or run pass them], or use your Punisher to snipe Salazar and just dodge the tentacle.
When you are in the castle, you may find a rocket launcher in the room where you must make a bridge to
get to the other side. Take the rocket launcher but do not use it. Wait for your fight with Salazar
to use it to end Chapter 4 easily. Immediately before the Boss battle with Salazar, take the TMP,
the rocket launcher, some herbs, and a shotgun [Striker recommended, but the Riot Gun works].
When you enter the room, watch Salazar fuse with the monster, then get to work. Use the shotgun or
TMP on the tentacle to your left until it goes away. Grab the item that is at the end then fire with
the TMP until Salazar appears. Then, equip that rocket launcher and fire for a one hit kill. Get
the 30,000 or 50,000 Peseta that he drops. This will pays for the rocket you used, and you will
save health for the next chapter. Once the Pesata is collected, go down into the pit and pick up
the remaining items. You can then leave and proceed to Chapter 5.
You must have the Broken Butterfly or Killer 7, and the striker or riot shotgun. When you run into the
room a sequence will begin. Make sure to have the shotgun [striker or the riot] equipped. Do not
use the pump action, as it slightly slow. Once the sequence ends, shoot him in his left eye, which
is the yellow one, until another sequence starts, showing the true Salazar. As soon as you have
control of Leon, quickly equip the Magnum. Note: They should be upgraded in power and firing speed.
Shoot him repeatedly until he dies. It should take around six or more shots, depending on your aim
and the Magnum that you use. All this should take no more than thirty seconds to a minute and a
half if you do not have the Magnum powered up. If you do not kill him with the first attempt when
it opens up, you may have to repeat the process.
Use the following trick to defeat Salazar in under thirty seconds. You need the rocket launcher you find
in the gallery and a Broken Butterfly magnum [preferably with two firepower upgrades]. As soon
as the fight starts, aim at his eye with the Broken Butterfly. When his 'shell' thing opens up to
show the midget, blast him with the rocket launcher.
Use the following trick to kill Salazar when he combines himself with Verdugo. Go to the left corner
of the room. This will make you be immune to any attacks he basically tries to use. When the giant
mouth tries to eat you, it will not work. Shoot the tentacle above you and the tentacle on the other
side without moving. Red9 is the most recommended gun to take out the tentacles. After they retract,
quickly take out your TMP or a rocket launcher and fire at the little blob, which is Salazar.
Sit there and shoot. Do not be afraid if the giant mouth reaches for you. It will not kill you
because it cannot reach you. Buy a Red9 and upgrade it all the time, along with your TMP [stock for
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.
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
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.
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.
Hints: Defeating Bosses:
To defeat Chief Mendez, Verdugo, Krauser, the U3 experiment ['It'], and Saddler, all in one second, immediately
at the start of the battle take out the PRL 412 laser cannon. Use the laser-light flash
and they will die instantly, without having to reveal their weak spot or freezing them, even under
the professional difficulty setting. Note: You cannot kill a Gigante until its parasite is showing.
If you read the description of the gun, it says that it is made to harm just parasites. However,
a charged blast of the PRL 412 is just as strong as a rocket; use that on a Gigante, then stand
close to it and use the flash. You also cannot kill Salazar with this strategy because he is too
far away for the flash, but not for the charged blast. Because of his spine, Chief Mendez can be defeated
in only three seconds with this strategy.
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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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
hiting X in front of the crane.
Hints: 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.
Hints: Game trailers:
Remain idle at the title screen. Eventually two trailers will begin playing and begin to cycle.
Hints: Completion bonuses:
Successfully complete the game to unlock the Separate Ways and Mercenaries-mini-games; the Professional
difficulty setting; the Leon's Raccoon City Police Department costume, Ashley's pop star costume,
and Ada's black costume; the Mathilda handgun and Infinite Rocket Launcher for purchase [for 1
million Pesetas], and the Tactical Vest [for 60,000 Pesetas]; and an alternate title screen.
Successfully complete the Separate Ways mini-game to unlock Ashley's knight costume and Leon's gangster
costume. Ashley's suit of armor is bullet and damage proof. She cannot get hurt by anything and
it is so heavy she cannot be carried away. You do not have to worry about giving her First Aid Sprays,
Herbs, or shooting Ganados trying to pick her up.
Hints: 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 hit X 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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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. Gather them and the grail.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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 Square 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.
Hints: Mercenaries mini-game: Bonus characters:
Achieve a four star rank in the following areas to unlock the appropriate character in the Mercenaries
Ada Wong: Pueblo
Albert Wesker: Waterworld
Hunk: Island Commando Base
Jack Krauser: Castle
Note: To unlock Albert Wesker easily, play as Krauser. All your arrows will kill the Ganados soldiers
in one hit. Also, use your mutated arm on the dual wielding chainsaw men for a one hit kill.
Hints: Church: Ring bell:
At the church where you rescue Ashley, you can shoot at the bell outside and it will ring.
Shoot the bell in order for more zombies to come running through the graveyard towards the church.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: P.R.L. 412:
Successfully complete the game in Professional mode. The merchant will give you a PRL 412 laser cannon
when you start round 2 of Professional mode.
Although the P.R.L. 412 laser cannon takes up 21 boxes [3x7] of inventory, it will kill any Boss in parasite
form in one hit, even Saddler. It has two forms of firing The first is to tap X to make
a flash of the laser-light, which slightly damages and blinds Ganados. The second is to hold X to
charge it up. When the red dot lights up on the gun, you can shoot a laser that will go through
an unlimited number of people, instantly killing them. Usually, using the flash function on Ganados
will blind them for about twenty seconds. If the parasite is sticking out of their head, the flash
will kill all in one hit within range. As the description of the gun says, it is specifically made
for harming parasites, not humans. If they are within range, Chief Mendez, Verdugo, Krauser, the
U3 experiment, and Saddler will all die in one flash without having to reveal their weak spot or
freeze them, even in Professional mode. Note: This will not kill an El Gigante in one hit, but using
the fully charged laser on him will reveal his weak spot. You can then use the flash to kill
the parasite. Also, will not kill Salazar, as he is too far away to use the flash function, but he
will die from a charged laser.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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.
Hints: 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.
