If you have +--------+seen one of my FAQs before, then you will know exactly what you are getting into. You are going to find a complete walkthrough here, of course, and most importantly, this is going to be 100% Spoiler Free. Because of the element of shock in the Resident Evil games, I feel it would be unwise to ruin these pleasant surprises for you. So if I come across an enemy/surprise, I will not point it out in the walkthrough. This is the only case where an enemy will be intentionally left out so any enemy that was intended to scare you will hopefully still do so! I also want to quickly point out this FAQ's general philosophy, and that is "detail where necessary." The walkthrough will be focused on getting you through the game, and not finding every single item possible. I have left enough for you to explore so your playing experience doesn't turn into one of robotic read and follow. Conversely, I will still stress the utmost of detail where it is required, such a couple of the complex puzzles in the game. The year 2008 was a pretty big FAQing year for me, and I am starting off 2009 similarly with Resident Evil 5. I wouldn't bet on having another year like last year, but I'm here now, so let's hope this is going to be a good one! -- ChaosDemon +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) / | || | | / | ||_ | | / e r s i o n H i s t o r y | |/\\ |+---|/--------------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [VH00]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | [ Version 0.20, March 5, 2009 ] - Added the walkthrough for Chapter +--------+ 1-1. Also added some Game Basics and some Weapons. Big thanks to my buddy Jeremy for picking this game up for me on his last day of vacation. I also want to inform you that updates will be coming pretty slowly because I have a few school projects that are due in the coming days. I'm thinking this file will be done around the North American release of the game, or most likely a few days after, which works out well because that's when the majority of the readers will be getting their games, I think. [ Version 0.21, March 13, 2009 ] - Well, here's an update. No walkthrough progress to report, or much of anything. I figured that since I wasn't going to get the walkthrough finished in the limited time that I have, I might as well do something useful and add all the 50 treasure locations. So that's the only content to report. Sorry for the lack of updates, everyone -- I literally got done all my school work at about 10 or 11pm on March 12. That's out of the way now, and I'm finally ready to focus on this FAQ (and not a moment too soon I might add). [ Version 0.56, March 16, 2009 ] - I spent most of this weekend plowing through as much of the walkthrough as I could. It's currently up to and including parts of Chapter 4-1. I'm starting to wonder whether I'm too old for this FAQ nonsense now, man, sitting here and slaving away on a basic text program isn't as glamorous as it seems. [ Version 0.57, March 17, 2009 ] - Finished the walkthrough to Chapter 5-1. There's really nothing else to report. [ Version 1.00, March 18, 2009 ] - The main walkthrough is finished (finally). This will finally allow me to work on some of the other stuff, and take a bit of a breather. Also note that I updated my instructions for the elusive Diamond (Marquis) in Chapter 6-3, as well as the Topaz (Oval) in Chapter 6-1 in the Treasure Locations. Check them out! [ Version 1.01, March 20, 2009 ] - Refined the Treasure Locations section. Everything should be as detailed as can be, and you should have no problem finding anything. Also added a bit about Infinite Ammo, and the New Game+. More to come! [ Version 1.10, March 23, 2009 ] - Added lots of new info. BSAA Emblem Locations are up with images where required, touched up on treasures, and started adding many strategies to the Trophy section. Also added some stuff on Infinite Ammo. Check them out. [Version 1.15, March 27, 2009 ] - Started the Mercenaries section. Added some maps and some general strategy for now. Unfortunately, I'm going to be pretty busy with some school work again, so we are going to slow down a bit with the updates. They will still come though. +--------+ _____) | ____/ | / | || | / | ||_ | / ___ a m e B a s i c s | |/\\ |+-/------/-)--------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | (_____/ -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [GB00]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | +--------+ +----+ | 1. | Controls +----+------------------------------------+ I only included the default controls because I would assume that's what most people are using. For the purposes of this FAQ, I will be using this setup. It shouldn't get in the way of your comprehension if you're using another control type though, because my instructions will be "control neutral"; i.e. I'll say "Run up to the door and hit the Action Button." The same applies to any of our Xbox 360 readers as well. _,.--.,_ _,.--.,_ | _____ | | _____ | |-' `'.--------------------------,'` `-| ,' __ `.

First off, the co-op stuff is centered around two buttons, essentially, the Circle Button and the R1 Button (on Control Type D). The Circle Button serves as the primary "Action" button for any team-up tasks like assisted jumps. You can also use it to call for Sheva if no "Action" is readily available. Additionally, it has the very, very important function of focusing Chris' line of sight to Sheva if she is in danger. If she's in danger and within melee distance, hitting the Circle Button would result in an immediate punch/kick from Chris to save Sheva. It's important to keep Sheva safe because if she dies, the game is over. Alternatively, you can also hit the Circle Button to call for help. This is especially useful when the Majini have grabbed you. If you hit the Circle Button and Sheva is nearby, she'll give the Majini one of those roundhouse kicks to drop those zombies like it's hot. You probably notice that you can "give" Sheva any of your weapons, items, etc. It is entirely up to you whether you want to give her ammo, because you might be able to handle everybody yourself. I find that this is usually the case in single player. However, do keep in mind that if she dies, the game is over, so leaving her a small window of opportunity to defend herself is probably a good idea. You can also view her inventory and get weapons from her. To do so, pull up the inventory and hit the Map button. This will allow you to cycle through Sheva's inventory, and cherry pick whichever item you so choose. Try to do this when you aren't involved in the heat of the battle for more success. Finally, when she's in big trouble, and is actually in Dying Status, you need to hit Circle Button to focus Chris' line of sight on her, and get close enough until the "Resuscitate" action appears and hit the Circle Button again. Failing to do so after a short period of time would spell game over. By the same token, when Chris is the one who's in dying status, it will be up to Sheva to resuscitate him. The alternative is of course game over. +----+ | 3. | Conserve Your Ammo +----+-------------------------------------+ It makes sense that conserving your ammo should be a primary goal in this game, because without any reloads, game over is likely coming pretty quickly. In some cases, conserving ammo would just mean not getting trigger happy. However, a lot of the times it's much more complex than that. Sometimes, you just have no choice but to keep firing, because those damn buggers won't go down! Also, remember to use your knife (L2 + R1) to destroy any boxes, fruit, etc, to find items. Don't shoot them. Many of the following strategies are geared towards this fundamental principle of ammo conservation - so please do yourself a favour by not wasting too many shots. +----+ | 4. | Use the Quick-Turn +----+-------------------------------------+ The quick turn has probably become synonymous with the Resident Evil franchise over the years. If you've played Dead Space though, you're probably a little bit out of the grove. This is just a quick reminder (and an important one at that) to _always_ use the Quick-Turn to look behind you or turn around. This is such a time-saver that there is no reason to do otherwise, and it could sometimes be the difference between a kill and a nice hack with the rusty axe. Get into habit of routinely checking behind you with the Quick-Turn and immediately turning back. This is a survival horror game after all, so expect some enemies to sneak up behind you. +----+ | 5. | Close the Distance +----+-------------------------------------+ This is one of the primary strategies that flow from "Conserve Your Ammo". You've probably noticed that Chris not only packs some heat, but also some serious power behind his punches and kicks (he sure looks a lot "bigger" since the last time we saw him). To utilize these attacks, you have to "stun" the Majini with some shots with your guns first. Usually a shot to the head is the easiest way, but shots to the arms and legs work too. Once you see the Majini are noticeably damaged so it's grabbing the body part that you shot, sprint towards it and hit the Action Button. An enemy hit with a punch or a kick will create a "snowball effect" to most nearby enemies, knocking them on the ground. Note that you need to finish the Majini off with a Stomp (Action button when close to a downed enemy) to completely kill them in some cases. I do want to point out that not all enemies will be stunned after a single shot. The only time they are stunned is if they turn away from you, grab their face, fall down to one leg, or grab their body part in pain. Getting close for a melee attack on an enemy that is not stunned is a pretty easy to mistake to make, so try to avoid it. Using your melee attacks (i.e. "Closing the Distance") on a continual basis will conserve a lot of ammo for when you really need it. There are many different attacks, and I have included a brief table summarizing the attacks. For those who want to +----+ | 6. | Use the Directional Pad +----+-------------------------------------+ There were a lot of complaints towards the controls when the demo was released, and not being able to pause the game while messing with the inventory was central. However, you should find that there are many "quiet spots" where no enemies are actively pursuing you. Take this time to equip the proper weapons/items on your Directional Pad. When you hit the Inventory button to pull up the menu, the items at the top middle square, the middle right and left squares, and the middle bottom square are considered equipped. Accordingly, you can hit the corresponding direction on your D-pad to select those items/weapons quickly. To play around with your Inventory Menu, hit the Square (Action) Button to select an item and move to one of the "equipped" squares. Here's a diagram to illustrate: Inventory HUD +-----------+ __ __ __ | |##| | Key |__|##|__| +--+ |##| |##| ##: Items in these "filled" squares will be equipped on the |##|__|##| corresponding direction on your D-Pad. | |##| | |__|##|__| I don't know what the big fuss about the game not pausing was about, because the D-Pad is VERY quick. Note that you can't toggle through the weapons while moving, so it only works when you're standing still. It shouldn't be too much of an issue, though, because there are many spots for you to mess around without having to worry about enemies, as mentioned. +----+ | 7. | The Combustible Elements +----+-------------------------------------+ This is another strategy based on the ammo conservation idea. I am of course referring to the various explosive barrels scattered around the missions that you can blow up with a single shot. When the enemies are piling up and just keep coming, a well-timed shot to a nearby barrel can be the difference in the fight. A single barrel triggers a huge explosion, so be careful to not be too close. An exploded barrel also does a heap of damage, which doesn't seem noteworthy when dealing with the basic Majini, but if you are fighting a boss you can deal some big damage with a single Handgun bullet, which seems like a good deal to me. Note that the hazardous objects aren't limited to combustion. There also the metal electrical boxes that are usually hanging from wooden poles. You can blast them to unleash a splash of electricity around an area, damaging all who are nearby (including Sheva). Some are on the ground as well, so always keep an eye out. +----+ | 8. | Reload Animation Cancelling +----+-------------------------------------+ You obviously know how to reload -- L1 + X Button by default. I want to point out that, generally, you won't be able to move when reloading, so try to avoid doing so when enemies are approaching and nearby. I say generally because there is a way for you to perform an "Animation Cancel" technique so you can reload and melee an enemy at the same time. This is especially useful when you're cornered and dealing with a bunch of enemies. To perform the technique +----------------------+ * You have to be close enough to perform a melee attack on the enemy. * Keep firing at the enemy until you see a melee attack prompt * Hit L1 + X to reload and immediately hit the Square Button to attack * If done correctly, Chris will perform his melee attack, and your gun will be reloaded at the end of the sequence. It might be a little awkward at first, but with some practice you will always be animation cancelling with your reloads. +----+ | 9. | Dealing with the Majini +----+-------------------------------------+ This section is intended to give you some basic information about the Majini. First of all, you've probably noticed that they are terribly slow. In many cases, it'd be possible to run right past/through a group of them unscratched. If you ever find yourself in a heated battle, running around the terrain is usually a good way to calm yourself down a bit. You are much faster than the basic Majini, so always remember that. In terms of weaponry, the basic Majini will be equipped with things like wine bottles, axes, shovels, limiting them to melee strikes only. Their wind-up is also very telegraphed, so you should know exactly when an attack is coming. Ideally, you'd never want to be hit by a Majini who's directly in front of you, because you can see exactly who's about to attack and within striking distance. In some cases, the Majini will be armed with an incinerating crossbow. These guys are just slightly more dangerous because of their ranged nature. Luckily, they always take their sweet time aiming so you should have plenty of time to take them out before they get you. Aside from their weapons, the Majini will grab you once they're close enough. From here, you can keep flicking the left analog stick, or hit the Partner Action Button (Circle by default), and if Sheva is close she'll deliver a roundhouse kick to the Majini to immediately break the grab. If you fail to do either of those things, the Majini will reveal their true faces and bite Chris' head. From here, only Sheva can save you so if she's not close enough after about a second or two it is all over. One final note I want to make about the Majini is always take advantage of the Majini that are charging towards you. A well-placed shot to the head will drop them instantly. Then, you can run right up and finish them off with the Stomp to the head (one of my personal favourite moves btw). +-----+ | 10. | Herbs +-----+-------------------------------------+ Herbs look like small trees that have been planted, for a lack of better description. They look like the kind that you can buy right out of your local supermarket. As of the writing of this section, there are two different colours of Herbs I am aware of: Green and Red. If the series holds true to the 4th instalment of Resident Evil, there should be a Yellow herb as well. The Green Herbs heal half of Chris' and Sheva's health, as long as she is within distance. You might think that's pretty weaksauce, which is entirely true. The Green is best combined with a Red Herb. If you use the new and improved Green + Red Herb, Chris and Sheva's health will be replenished fully. Here's a brief summary that quickly sums up the different Herbal combinations available: Green = Recover about half of your current health Green + Green = Recover a large amount of health (nearly full) Green + Red = Recover 100% of your health Ideally, you don't really need to equip a Herb for safety. In fact, it might even be a good idea to give most of your Herbs to Sheva (save for one G+R for emergencies). Sheva will frequently use her Herbs whenever Chris has low health (usually when your health meter fills up only a bit of the bottom of the meter). In a small area, she should have no problem finding you to heal, and in a large area, you can usually sprint away from the Majini and have enough time to use the Herb and heal yourself. +-----+ | 11. | Special Actions +-----+-------------------------------------+ I'm not sure if this warrants its own little section, but here it is. When opening doors/gates, if you tap the Action Button repeatedly, Chris will kick down the door instead slowly opening it. This can be a timesaver. Finally, the Investigate Button will usually give you some hints, foreshadow the future, allow you to take a look at some nice, fresh guts, among other things. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK00]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | P r e f a c e | I want to quickly point out some things to +--------+------------------------' keep in mind while playing through the missions. The first thing I want to discuss is the Inventory menu. The Inventory Menu is where you can trade items between the two characters, and sell the treasures that you have procured. More importantly, it is the menu where you can upgrade your weapons. If you highlight the weapon you want to upgrade, and hit the X button, you will see the option to upgrade. For Shotguns, I would emphasize maximizing it's capacity and power first. For handguns, such as the M92F, upgrading the Critical is umm... critical. For Sniper Rifles, I would focus on power. Upgradng your weapons will cost Gold. You can of course accumulate your wealth by grabbing the Gold dropped by enemies on the battlefield. The majority of your riches will most likely come from selling the treasures you have found though. I have dedicated an entire section to finding treasures so please go there if you need to find rack up some gold and quickly. The walkthrough will follow this guide's general phiolosphy: detail where necessary. I am not going to take you across the continent of Africa finding item after item. I feel this would make the walkthrough very tedious to follow for our readers who just want to get through the game first. I have dedicated separate sections of the FAQ to finding the Treasures and BSAA Emblems on your later playthroughs, because I think most of you will be playing more than once. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK11]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 1 - 1 | All right, it seems that it is finally time +--------+------------------------' to get this chapter in the Resident Evil | M92F Handgun...............

Do so, and go up to him again to activate the next bunch of scenes. At the conclusion of the cut scenes, Chris and Sheva will now be fully equipped with their vests and gear. Sprint straight ahead towards the crate on the box to pick up some Gold. Now, turn left and there's a clipboard to the right that briefly details the Dying status. It is also reviewed in the Game Basics section of this FAQ, so it's entirely up to you to speculate. When you're ready, leave through the opening to your left and back outside. Take another left past the wagon and sprint down the stairs to activate another cut scene. Sprint straight down to the dead horse and take a right into the shack. There are some skulls and candles to create a little bit of a mood for you. To the right of those skulls is another door, kick it down as per usual. Sprint towards the crate on the table to your left and knife it open for a Green Herb. There's a barrel to the left of that with some Gold. Now take a right a little deeper into the room and turn left when you can. You'll find another Green Herb here. Combine it with the other to have a potent recovery item. Now kick open the nearby door to emerge back outside. There's another crate on the table here, so cut it open to grab some more Gold. Time to sprint straight ahead and up the stairs. There's a door to your right, hit the Partner Action Button (PA Button, O button by default). Then hit the Action button to activate another cut scene. At the end of it, open fire on the single Majini ahead. Continue to where he was standing and turn left to see a door. Kick it open to emerge into the next room. Turn right to find some Handgun ammo on the shelf. Now turn left and sprint straight towards the window. Jump through with the Action button to take a dive back outside. Turn around and you should see some boxes by the wall. Turn right and sprint down the path ahead. Take another right when you can to activate another cut scene. After the scene concludes, make a Quick Turn and immediately begin your sprint. Make your way out of the alley and into the door up ahead. Once inside, go down the small stairs and take a left to activate a cut scene. In the north corner of the room is a standard Grenade. There's another Green Herb on the shelf to the left. Turn around and go straight towards the metal door. Hit the Action Button and tell you that you can't kick it down. Now the PA Button should be prompted, so hit that to kick the door down with Sheva. Once in the next room, take a right towards the three barrels in the corner. Do some slicing and dicing to pick up the N 100 Gold, N 200 Gold, and some Machine Gun Ammo. Now make a Quick Turn and go straight towards the little hole on the ground and jump through. Run straight ahead and take a left down the hallway. Continue past the skeleton in the next room to find another hallway. Sprint straight ahead to the ladder and climb up using the Action Button. There are two Handgun Ammo on the shelf ahead, as well as another Green Herb to the right of that. Hit the Action Button, then the PA Button to activate a loading screen. If you've played the demo, you should recognize that you are now in the stage called Public Assembly. There are some subtle differences (which I'll point out), but for the most part it's the same. Anyway, make your way down the hill and pick up the Green Herb on the table. Then go into the shack to activate the cut scene (hit Select to skip if you wish). When the scene is over, either tell Sheva to push the shelves to block the window and door or do it yourself. Now make your way to the television set and pick up the Handgun ammo on the table. Go around and collect the rest of the stuff around the room by slicing the fruit, chopping up the crates, etc. It won't be long now until the Majini break down the shelf. Open fire on them through the window or let some of them pour through so you can use your melee attacks. Just spend the next few minutes fending off the Majini until the second cut scene initiates. Just stay put for a while and our friend, the Executioner should make his way inside. You won't have your Shotgun this time around, so taking him out won't be as easy. So for now, just sprint through the big hole he opened up. Sprint straight ahead to the locked gate. To the right is a briefcase containing the Vz.61. Now head up the stairs directly across. Jump across a platform to find a Green Herb. If you continue jumping to the long platform to the left, you will find a crate with Gold on some tires. The name of the game is just to survive for the next few minutes. I wouldn't recommend engaging the Executioner unless you really feel like it. Otherwise, just keep running around and taking out the Majini as you see them.

Turn | Handgun Ammo............... [ ] | | N100 Gold.................. [ ] | around and go towards the door you came | Wooden Barrel.............. [ ] | from, and take a left past the flour. You | Wooden Barrel x 3.......... [ ] | should see the steel backdoor now, so go | Furnace Key................ [ ] | through it. A short cut scene here. You '---------------------------------' should see the prompt for the Assisted Jump now. This is optional. Whether you choose to make the jump or not, your next line of action is to take a left and then make a right towards the main street. You'll see an enemy here, so make quick work of her and take a right past her body. Yet another Wooden Barrel awaits you. After that, turn around and sprint down the street. Once you reach the broken ladder, another enemy will attack you. Dispose of him and make your way to the ladder. This time, the Assisted Jump is necessary. Just hang tight and fight off any enemies that present themselves. Shortly after, Sheva will be able to grab the Old Building Key. A semi-big wave of enemies will now start attacking, but they shouldn't be too big of a concern. There's an opening into a small building directly in front of the ladder. Leave through the steel door to the right. Take a left and you should see a fence. Continue down this alley and you should see yet another Wooden Barrel. Slash it up and continue past it to see the next passage. Sprint past the junk and take a right towards the cardboard boxes. Continue ahead towards the stands with the umbrellas on them. Slash the Fruit for some items. Just run past the set of stairs and you should see another Wooden Barrel in the distance. Check it out and take a right through the metal gate (Partner Action). It won't be long until you see a building to the left. The Old Building Key opens its door. Inside, you will find a Crate on the table and the Ithaca M37 hung on the wall. You should pick it up (going to need it soon). Leave the Old Building now and head up the stairs you saw earlier to activate a brief scene. Take out your shotgun and blast her. It will just take a few more shots than usual to take her out. Once the big ugly thing comes out of her neck, you are just a few more shots away. Take her out and pick up the Ivory Relief. She'll also have the support of a few more Majini. If you're lucky though, your shotgun will deal some splash damage to them while you're attacking the blondie. When you dispose of everyone, leave through the steel door (it's opposite of the one you came in from). Head down the stairs outside run straight ahead, past the small stairs and around the crate to the right. You should see a straight path through the hole in the wall. Sprint through the hole and you should see a really old looking door directly in front. Take a right and check out the two Wooden Barrels before heading through the door to the next area. Sprint straight ahead and take a right to activate a brief scene. Continue ahead and go through the door. Run past the couch and take a left. Ignore any turns and just keep running straight ahead until it's not possible. Next, you'll have to manuever left a few times, and you should see the stairs leading upwards soon. Once back upstairs, take a left and run straight ahead. Then, take a right when you can. You'll now see a ladder and a Wooden Barrel in the corner. Speculate and see what you come up with. Next, climb up the ladder. Take a left when you're up above, and you should see two more Wooden Barrels. After you've checked them out, Quick Turn and walk back outside to the wooden platform. Turn right and you should see the rusty metal door. Before going through, turn left and jump across to find a Treasure Chest. Inside, you'll find a total of N 1000 Gold. Now jump back across and Partner Action the door to initiate a scene. After watching that one, grab the Handgun Ammo close to one of the bodies and cut up the Crate on the table to find N100 Gold. Now kick open the door and turn right down the hallway. Just follow the path straight ahead to the elevator. Get inside and you'll now head downwards to the basement. Immediately, you'll see a Wooden Barrel to the right. Pick up whatever is inside and head down the hallway. Follow the path up the stairs and through the door. Inside, two Wooden Barrels await you immediately to the right. Another one is to the left, by some flour. You should notice an elevator door up ahead. You won't be able to go through just yet, instead, take a left, and into the hallway close to the second barrel you saw. Just keep running past the fallen BSAA troop and into the next room. There's a sparkling object on the floor--you know what means, time to... check it out! It's the Furnace Key, so grab it. Before leaving, take note of the gas tanks on the wall. There are two of them. If you go up and Investigate, you will be told that they can easily be tipped over. Also, take note of the lever on the control table, where if you pull it, it would first close the door to the cremation chamber, and torch whatever is inside. These tidbits will come in very handy later. Now, sprint back outside and keep going until the cut scene initiates. __ __) (, / / / / / /+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ (___(_ r o b o r o s /-------------------------------------' +----------------------------------+/ B o s s B a t t l e # 1 [BB01] | Chapter 1-2 |All right, this fight can either be done very quickly, or it '---------------'could also take a while if you are not careful. Immediately begin by sprinting straight back into the room where you grabbed the Furnace Key. Immediately take a right, to the first gas tank. Tip it over, and get inside the cremation chamber we identified earlier. Watch Uroboros when he comes into the room, and make sure he can see you from where you're standing inside the chamber. You should notice that Uroboros will envelope the gas tank when he comes towards you, so it gets attached to his body. Now, lure it into the chamber. You need to position yourself strategically here, because you need to escape quickly. Here's a diagram to help illustrate: ______________________________ | X | The plan is to get Uroboros into the chamber, |``` . ```| and blast the gas tank that it has enveloped. | . | This will create a massive explosion, and it |``` . ```| will stun Uroboros for a brief period of time. | . | Then, you have to get outside and immediately | __________________ . | pull the lever to close the door (which comes | _ || Control Hub | _ | down very slowly). When the door closes, the |_|z|_|| |_|y|_| flames will engulf the Uroboros, killing him instantly. So let is now turn our attention over the diagram. You should first note that there's a fence between exit "z" and the Control Hub, so if we are going to get to the hub, it will have to be through exit "y" only. The "X" on the diagram is where I believe you should be standing when you make the shot to put the Uroboros down. You don't want to be too close to the exit, because when he wakes up he would escape too quickly. You don't want to be too far either, because it will take you too long to run outside. Point "X" seems to be an ideal spot, so be around there. Once you make the shot and put it down, sprint to the Control Hub, leaving through exit "y" and pull on the lever. You will now notice that the door is closing _very_ slowly. If you have any Grenades, this would be a good time to throw them in there to slow it down a little bit. Once the door closes, the flames (```) will ignite, killing the Uroboros instantly. Do note that if you mess up the first time, there's another tank of gas that you can tip over, so you can restart the luring process. If you mess up the second time, you can also try "juking" it, by running into the cremation chamber from entrance "y", and making sure the Uroboros follows you through (you can do so by stopping momentarily in the middle to allow it to catchup). Then, leave through exit "z", and run ALL the way around the fence to the Control Hub. If you've done it correctly, the Uroboros will try to walk through the fence, realize that it can't, and try to get to you by walking through the chamber again. IMMEDIATElY pull on the lever to initiate the burning process. Use Grenades to slow it down if it looks like it'll escape. Both ways work fine, but I personally think the first way is easier. +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+ After you've defeated the Uroboros, the door should open, so leave and go down the hallway, past the BSAA marine and inside the lift to conclude the Chapter. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK21]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 2 - 1 | Let us begin by going over to the shiny +--------+------------------------' briefcase to the left. You should know by | H&K MP5 (MG)............... [ ] | now that shiny briefcases denote a weapon. | BSAA Emblem................ [ ] | Inside is the H&K MP5 Machine Gun. Next, go | Handgun Ammo............... [ ] | to work on the Wooden Barrel and Crate in | N100 Gold.................. [ ] | the corner. Don't forget to shoot the very | Jewel Bangle............... [ ] | first BSAA Emblem that's on the wall, to | Wooden Barrel x 2.......... [ ] | the right of the door and to the left of a | Crate...................... [ ] | barred window. After doing so, head through | Wooden Barrel.............. [ ] | the metal door to the next area. | Sapphire (Pear)............ [ ] | | Port key................... [ ] | You'll now find yourself outside. Turn | Antique Clock.............. [ ] | right and sprint towards the storage | Wooden Barrel x 2.......... [ ] | crates. If you have a Sniper Rifle, pull it | Green Herb x 2............. [ ] | up and look towards the sky, to the left. | Handgun Ammo............... [ ] | You should see a crossbow-yielding Majini | Green Herb................. [ ] | perched up top. Dispose of him and turn | Crate x 2.................. [ ] | your attention back to ground level. Note | Wooden Barrel x 2.......... [ ] | the little laser trap here. Take out your | Handgun Ammo............... [ ] | Handgun (if you haven't already), and aim | Red Herb x 2............... [ ] | towards the box on the wall to the right. | Wooden Barrel.............. [ ] | Stay relatively clear (don't have to be too | Hand Grenade x 2........... [ ] | far) so the explosion won't hurt you. Now | Guard's Key................ [ ] | continue onwards into the little storage | Ruby (Square).............. [ ] | crate maze and you should see some Majini. | Gold bars.................. [ ] | One will charge at you immediately. The | Topaz (Pear)............... [ ] | other doesn't really have his attention | Sapphire (Square).......... [ ] | towards you, but he'll probably run away | Emerald (Pear)............. [ ] | when you aim. Take him out and continue on '---------------------------------' to the path on the right. Shortly after, you'll see another not-so-subtle trap. You know what to do. Continue deeper into the maze, and viola, some flesh eating dogs! If you still have your shotgun, pull it out and start blasting. Now turn to the path on the right (away from where the dogs came from). Another trap. Blast it and move into the path it was protecting. Another Majini should attack you at this point, so just be mindful. Continue on the path and you should see a ladder resting against the crate. Up ahead you should see a mini-tunnel of sorts, so head through and jump down. Now turn left and you should be out of the storage crate "maze" and back outside. A Big Man Majini awaits you here, along with a dog and a couple of Majini. Take note of the combustible tanks by the parked car and take advantage if you can. The Big Man Majini is the topless fatso, and while he looks tough, a few Shotgun Shells to the beer gut would be good enough to bring it down. If you manage to do so, you will be awarded with a Jewel Bangle. Some more basic Majini, and a few dogs will trickle in. As always, take care of the crossbow Majini first. Dispose of the rest of them, and make your way to the huge metal gate behind the cars to reach the next area. Equip your Sniper Rifle and turn left to the huge bridge. Jump across and it won't be too long until the manic garbage truck makes its entrance. Wait for the truck to be next to one of the various explosive barrels and blast the barrel to tip it over. A few more Majini will start attacking now, so pick them off. Use the explosive barrels whenever possible. Now sprint ahead on the bridge, and you will notice that a semi-big wave of enemies will now present themselves. Once you've made it to the other side of the bridge, you can speculate in the buildings to find a few Wooden Barrels and crates. Otherwise, take the note of the stairs to the left, head down and into the tunnel. Have your shotgun ready because some pesky canine await you down there (quite a few of them I might add). Follow the tunnel a bit and you should see a gate. Kick it open and head to the door in the northwest of this room. Go on through to the next area. You should now see daylight again. Turn left into the little alcove and you will see a Sapphire (Pear) left on the ground. Now have your shotgun ready and run straight ahead. You will see some bodies on the ground, and some flying parasites will hatch from them. Put down each Parasite with a single shotgun shell each. Now shoot the lock on the gate with your Handgun and continue through. Just follow the tunnel for a bit until you see fenced off sewer ahead. To the left of that is the ladder to reach back to ground level. Sprint straight ahead to the second canoe ahead (past the small stairs to the left) and you should see a Green Herb. Now go down the path you ignored earlier to the beach below. Now sprint to the right along the beach and you should make it to the market place area. Turn right at the first market stand to the building with the double metal doors. Blast the lock on it and kick the door. You should see a hanging body inside, but there's also a sparkly Port key on its body. Blast it and pick it up. Now jump through the window on the wall to the right to initiate a brief scene and a semi-big battle. A wave of Majini await you immediately outside, headed by a Big (Fat) one. Take care of each of them and pick up the Jewel Bangle. Now turn right and move ahead into the market place. Take care of the rest of Majini. Also take note of the treasure chest in the market stand in the middle. If you have a Grenade, you can blow up the stand to grab the chest and the Ruby (Marquise). Now use the key on the locked gate and kick it open. Follow the path up ahead and head down the ramp to the right. Now make your way to the small stairs on the left. Continue along and you should see a couple of Wooden Barrels. Slice and dice them and see what you find. I got some Gold and some Machine Gun Ammo. Time to head back down the small stairs, and take a left down the ramp shortly after. Now make your way to the small ladder with your Sniper Rifle ready. A big group of Majini await you ahead. If you have some Grenades, feel free to launch a couple at them here. Otherwise, use your Sniper Rifle and goto work. It won't be long until air support arrives. Continue a bit deeper into the town and look for the ladder on the right. Climb up and take care of the single Majini here. Now goto where the tire is and you should see a Green Herb. Time to jump down and circle around to where the sacks of flour and big canoe is to go around the Majini blockade. As you continue in the next area here, stick to the left and look for the Green Herb there. A pretty big wave of Majini await you here, so dispose of each of them and take the path to the left to the metal gate to the next area. You should now recognize that we are in the second stage of our demo--Shanty Town. Begin by sprinting straight down the alley to the left. Just ignore the Majini chatter at first and make your way to the Crate on the trunk of the car. Now jump into the nearby window to the small Majini hideout. Grab the Handgun Ammo on the shelf to the right. Now kick open the door and you will find a Green Herb outside just ahead. Continue on the path to the left, and also turn left when you can to the stand with the two crates. Continue up the ramp and have your Shotgun ready. Two Flying Parasites will announce their presence. Blast them with your Shotgun and give Sheva the Assisted Jump upwards. You can circle up the hill and take care of the Majini that start attacking. Take note of the single Majini perched on the hill. Pick him off and also take care of the flying parasite that merges from his body. There's a small stairs that leads to the side of the building in the middle, and you'll find a Wooden Barrel there. Now continue up the hill to the door. A bunch of Majini will barge through, so have a couple of Grenades handy and start chucking. Turn left inside and to the washroom area. A single Majini will attack you, and he's standing also standing on a Handgun Ammo. Grab the Red Herb on the ground and continue deeper into the room. Another Red Herb is sitting on the table. Go into the little alcove to the left for a single Majini and a Wooden Barrel. Now time to head up the stairs and pick off the Majini along the way. You'll find two Hand Grenades to the left; one by the sacks of flour and another outside on the balcony. When you're ready, continue up the next set of stairs. Two Wooden Barrels are up here, along with a Handgun Ammo on the shelf. When ready, turn right outside to the balcony and perform the Assisted Jump for Sheva across. Have your Sniper Rifle ready now and head down one level and once again out to the balcony. Begin picking off the various Majini across. They will be coming from the stairs to the right. Blow up the explosive barrel if you have to. When Sheva makes her way outside, time to head down to meet her at the gate. Emerge outside and pick off the various Majini you come across. There are several crates in the building across (where Sheva came from). Head inside and procure each crate. Stay here for a while to fight off the incoming Majini. Leave through the backdoor and turn left to find another crate. When ready, sprint towards the huge set of stairs. A Green Herb is perched at the foot of the stairs to the left, and there's a Wooden Barrel to the right. Now, sprint up the stairs and it's time to do battle against your friend and mine--the Chainsaw Majini. +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+ +-----+ | MB. | Chainsaw Majini +-----+-------------------------------------+ MB stands for Mini-boss, by the way. When the battle begins, make a Quick Turn and immediately sprint away. Stop a few metres away from the explosive barrel when you see it. Wait for Chainsaw to come, and blast the barrel when he's close. If he falls to one knee, move in and give him a melee attack. There are a few basic Majini that present themselves, so use the explosive barrels to dispose of them whenever possible. Time to make your way to the alley and to the next explosive barrel to damage Chainsaw, and hopefully be able to land __________________ another melee attack. | ####| | X ####| For our general strategy, we will once again turn our | |z| ####| attention to the diagram. The "e"'s denote explosive | ,. e |#| barrels on the battlefield. Point X is the very top of | ,. |#| the big stairs, and where Chainsaw came from. Point Y is | e ,. ---|#| the fence wall where a bunch of Majini spawn from. There's | ,. z e | |#| of course an alley right next to it. The #'s represent | e ,. ---|#| areas where you don't have to go. | ,. |#| | ,. ___________|#| The "." and "," represent your two paths. For this battle, |_Y___________e____| our strategy consists of sprinting first to point Y (alley) (which is path ".") with your Sniper Rifle. The idea is to create some separation between you and Chainsaw, which shouldn't be very difficult to do. Have your Sniper Rifle in scope mode and watch for Chainsaw to approach. Before making your shot to its head, you also want to wait until it's close enough so you can sprint to it and give it a nice melee attack. "z" in the diagram represents roughly the area where you want Majini to be standing when you attack. The ideal point for when you're on Point Y is right around the explosive barrel and that really broken down truck on the right. When you're standing at the top of the stairs on Point X, you want Chainsaw to be anywhere on the big stairs or just at the foot of them, as noted in the diagram. So after attacking Chainsaw at Point X, make your way back to Point Y ("," path). Just keep going from Point X to Point Y, blasting him in the head with the Sniper Rifle and delivering a melee attack. Repeat the process until it finally goes down. Grab the Guard key from its dead body to conclude the Mini- Boss fight. +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+ Time to sprint up the big stairs now, and take a left to the alley. Procure whatever is in the barrel and use your new key to open the gate. Continue ahead to the treasure chest to find, Ruby (Square), Gold bars, Topaz (Pear), Sapphire (Square), and Emerald (Pear). Now make your way to the graffiti'D door to the next area. Turn left and sprint straight down this path. Turn right up the hill to the large metal gate. Head on through to activate a brief cut scene and conclude the chapter. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK22]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 2 - 2 | Begin by turning around and grabbing the +--------+------------------------' Green Herb on the table. Also look around | Green Herb................. [ ] | for some ammo. When you're ready, head out | Lantern.................... [ ] | the door and to the train yard. Take a left | Green Herb................. [ ] | once outside, and take a right between the | Wooden Barrel.............. [ ] | two carts when you can. Sprint ahead until | Diamond (Oval)............. [ ] | you see another one of the traps from the | Green Herb................. [ ] | last chapter. Wait for the dogs to show up, | Wooden Barrel.............. [ ] | and blow up the trap, hopefully taking out | Wooden Barrel.............. [ ] | the dogs in the process. | Dragunov (Rifle)........... [ ] | | Green Herb................. [ ] | Now take another left, and follow the path | Handgun Ammo............... [ ] | here. Set off the trap again and continue | Diamond (Brilliant)........ [ ] | on. When you make it out of the train car | Wooden Barrel x 2.......... [ ] | "sandwich", immediately take a left and | Green Herb................. [ ] | jump on to the lumber stacks. Climb up the | Green Herb................. [ ] | ladder to the left and you will now see | Handgun Ammo............... [ ] | three Majini perched on top of the trains. | Green Herb................. [ ] | They are all armed with crossbows. I would '---------------------------------' recommend just ignoring them here. Instead, jump from your cart to the platform on the left, with the yellow/black stripe. Take out the Majini up ahead and then make your way down the nearby ramp. Watch out for the trap here. Blast it and continue down the ramp, and jump down on the left. You'll now be on a cart. Aim your weapon and blast the trap up ahead. Wait for Sheva to catch up and then take the lift down to the next area. You are now in the pitch black mines. Go forward to the Lantern and instruct Sheva to pick it up. There should also be a Green Herb to the right of that. Note that you will not have your map down here. For the first part, just keep sprinting ahead. There will be no enemies yet. Soon you will hit a fork, take the path to the left. Continue along this direction for a bit and you should soon see a Majini. Take care of it and continue up the small hill while veering to the left. The next part is just straight ahead again, and there's another Majini waiting you. Soon you will see a bridge with a light. Just a little farther now. A group of about three Majini will try to take you out. Dispose of them and continue on. You'll have to take care of a few more enemies along the way. It won't be long until you make it to a Wooden Barrel. If you want the Diamond (Oval), look for the hidden passage towards the left leading to the treasure chest. When you're ready, just move on to the train tracks and you should begin to see some more light. Make your way to the switch and start turning. Once Sheva runs through and tells you that she'll open the gate for you, turn around and dispose of the incoming Majini. Then, sprint through the gate to the checkpoint. Inside, sprint straight across to the ladder and climb up. Turn right and kill the Majini up ahead. Move past his body and climb up the ladder to the left when you see it. Procure the Wooden Barrel and grab the Green Herb. Two Majini await you on the path to the left, as well as a Wooden Barrel. Turn into the opening to the right when you see it. You should soon a fork pretty soon, so take the path to the right when you do. Sprint straight up until you see the single Majini aiming his crossbow at you. Take him out and procure the Wooden Barrel behind him. Turn right to the lift to exit the mines. Back to daylight at last. Sprint straight up the stairs ahead and into the room to initiate a cut scene. Immediately following the scene, go over to the locker on the left to procure the super effective Dragunov. This is a sniper rifle, which is very handy here. Take cover near the window (hit the Action Button next to it), and start picking the Majini off. Be very careful of the any Majini who go to operate the machine gun--always look to kill that one first. After you've disposed of everyone, turn around and pick up the Green Herb by the couch. Don't forget about the Handgun Ammo on the shelf. Next, head down the stairs to the right of the bookshelf with the ammo. Some pesky Majini will be present, so watch out for his pick axe. Once you make downstairs, leave through the metal door. Sprint straight ahead the path and you should soon come to a single Grenade on the ground. Run past the machine gun and to the huge ladder. Climb up and turn right. You should see a pile of rubble here. Now jump down on to the ledge below for a checkpoint, and jump all the way back down to the ground. Keep an eye out for the Assisted Jump to the left. Do so and continue up the mountain. You'll meet up with Sheva pretty soon. There are is a semi-big wave of Majini here. Keep moving up and killing anyone in your way. Eventually, you should see a crib of rubble. If you go up to it, you will have the Investigate prompt telling you that you won't be able to push it alone. Move to the left, on the short side of the crib and hit the Partner Action button to push it off the cliff. Move to the twin Wooden Barrels and procure whatever is inside. Be sure to grab the Green Herb on the table to the left. When you're ready for the boss battle, jump down the cliff to the ground below. _____ (, / ) _ /__ / /+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ ) / o p o k a r i m u /------------------------------------' +--(_/------------------------------+/ B o s s B a t t l e # 2 [BB02] | Chapter 2-2 | All right, this fight should be nice and easy. Begin by '---------------' procuring all of the Proximity Mines to in the Wooden Barrels to the left, along with the various items you will run into. In terms of guns, I will recommend the Dragonuv, because it's likely the most powerful weapon you have at the moment. Any Shotgun is also ideal. Begin by circling to the lower area of the battlefield, where there's a tent. Plant a Proximity Mine here, and lure the Popokarimu on to the explosive. Once it stupidly sets off the mine, it will be stunned for a brief period of time. Immediately switch to your Dragonuv and start blasting its exposed belly (it looks vulnerable because it's a different shade than the thick skin). After blasting it for a while, set another mine down. Putting it in the same area is fine. Keep repeating the process until it goes down. In terms of the enemy's attack, you obviously need to not get physically attacked by it. On top of that, it also has this corrosive mucus that it could spit at you. If you get caught in the mucus, you will be temporarily immobile, unless your partner frees you. Aside from these two points, it doesn't really present much of a threat. Focus on shooting its belly (and not the face) and you will finish it off in no time. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK23]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 2 - 3 | There are no items to report in this level. +--------+------------------------' It is entirely vehicularly based so there will be directional challenges to speak of. Begin by opening fire on the Majini on the motorcycles. They shouldn't pose much of a threat. Watch for the on- screen prompt and keep tapping the button. The second wave of Motorcycle Majini will be accompanied by a truck. It will be coming from the right, so take care of that one first. Clear out the rest of the motorcycle guys, and watch for the X button on-screen prompt. The third wave will begin with another truck, this time coming from the left. Some more motorcycles will follow. Watch for the next on-screen prompt, which is L1 + R1. The next wave consists of two trucks with motorcycle support. The first truck comes from the left. The second on the right. Soon you will reach the blockade. Start by blowing up the explosive barrel to the left of the truck. Clean up the rest of them. In the next area, a truck will come from the right hand side, so be ready for them. Shortly after that, it will be the motorcycle guys again. Finish them off to conclude the chase.

You have a turret to use, so you don't have to worry about wasting ammo. The only thing to watch out for is the machine gun overheating, which happens if you hold on to the trigger for too long. So be sure to let go of the trigger momentarily during your attacks. Begin by opening fire on its face, non-stop. Don't be worried when he pulls up his foot in a stomping motion, if you keep firing at him he will not be able to stomp you. Just keep firing at him and don't bother letting go of your trigger just yet. Once you shoot at him long enough, he will back off. After backing off, you'll probably notice a few parasites popping out of his body. At the same time, some Majini will show up in the area to the right. Blast the nearby barrel to dispose of them quickly. It's time for us to turn our attention to the parasites. Blast at whichever one you can see, and soon he will pick up a huge boulder. Blast the nearby Explosive Barrel to put an end to that immediately. The next phase will have him approach you. Just keep firing at the parasites until the parasite pop out of its spine. Go to town on that thing until it hides again. The next part is the same, some more tiny parasites will appear. Go to work on them until the big parasite shows itself. Blast it again. Once he picks up the telephone pole, you will have to press L1+R1 to dodge some attacks before you can keep attacking. Repeat the process until it does. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK31]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 3 - 1 | Begin by going to the small island ahead +--------+------------------------' and pick up the Beast Slate by the dead | Beast Slate................

If you want the Chalice (Silver), sail your boat to the very top-left tip of your map. You will find an island here with a hut. Climb the ladder to find it in a treasure chest. Get back on your boat and pull up your map. Drive to the X at the very top of your map first. Make your way to the pots and masks. Shoot the sparkly mask on the very top to grab another treasure. Check out the huts for various items. When you're ready, sprint straight into the tribal area and you should see two broken ladders, which signals Assisted Jumping time. The one on the left holds the Idol (Silver), while the one right holds the Shaman Slate. Now some pissed off tribesman will begin their attack on you. They can take more punishment than the average Majini, so be mindful of that. The ones who come with the shields should be dealt with your shotgun; the regular M92F won't be able penetrate them. No enemies here should be too daunting, so fight your way back to the boat for a checkpoint. Now let's drive your way to the X on the right end of the map. Sheva might start firing at some Majini, but ignore that and just keep driving the boat. Once you arrive at the island, you'll find a large pool of water ahead. Circle to the left, and stay along the edge. You will find a Beetle (Brown) around the tree. Keep traveling along the edge of the water and you should soon come to some buildings, along with a huge canoe. Go towards the buildings and make your way to the ladder near the centre. Follow the path above and circle around until you see a ramp leading downwards. It will lead you to a small hut containing the Raptor Slate. After you grab it, a single Majini will appear so dispose of him make your way back to the boat. Let's make our way to the final X on the map. Do so by driving straight downwards, and turning left into the strip on the map when you are there. Once you've reached the location, you'll have to circle around to the docking point. Once on the ground, head up the ramp and turn right. Instead of turning left towards the cabin just yet, take the stairs down to the golden carpet and a treasure chest. There's another Idol (Silver) here. Now turn left to the ramp leading upwards (ignore the flat ramp). Sprint up the ramp then take a right, and you should see a cabin up ahead. Jump through the window and procure the Warrior's Slate in the chest--the final piece of the puzzle. Now leave through the window you came in and fight your way back down to the golden carpet area. Turn right to head up the ramp that leads you back towards your boat. From there, just follow the path while veering to the left until you see your boat and flee to safety. Now it's time to drive your boat back to the marker--but wait, the Majini have set up a blockade. Position the boat so you're facing the wooden structure above, where the Majini are perched. Allow Sheva to pick them off. After she clears out the first wave, drive the boat through the hole and allow her to take out the next. Once they are all eliminated, the spikes will lower and you will have a straight path to the marker. Go up to the door and Investigate four times. Then hit the Partner Action button to open the door to the next area. Begin by jumping into the stream below. Turn left and follow the stream until you get attacked. The attacker is a Majini with the crossbow at the top of a small hut. Pick him off and proceed to the camp/tribal area. There are a variety of items in the huts on the perimeter. Don't go over to the shiny Magnum by the fallen soldier until you are ready for a battle. Once you are, go over to the S&W M29 Magnum and pick it up. A bunch of Majini with crossbows will now appear above. They really aren't very dangerous, so position yourself so you can get a good shot, and pick them off one-by-one. After you've gotten them all, you will be allowed to leave. Head towards the nearby hill. All right, this is where it could get a little dangerous. Arm your Shotgun and pepper the Majini with shots at first. When you see the huge ones with masks (called Giant Majini) appear, get your Rocket Launcher ready. If you see the two Giant Majini, fire your rocket at them, and with any luck, both will be killed instantly. Pick up the Blue Enigma that they drop and continue up the path that they came from. Climb up the small ledge at the end of it and fend off any of the remaining enemies. Go over to the chain and instruct Sheva to turn on it. Time to head down the hill and make your way to the bridge on the right. Also, you can go around and procure the items from the huts if you like. Watch out for the N100 Gold on the ground--it's boobied trapped, so don't bother grabbing that one. Just cross the bridge to the other side. There's a large pot in the corner to the left. Go up the stairs and procure the items in the hut. Next, take a right up the ramp towards the tunnel. Go inside and procure the Ceremonial Mask. Now leave the tunnel and make the jump to the right. Follow the path here into the small hut and procure the two large pots. Next, head into the trolley to conclude the chapter. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK32]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 3 - 2 | When the chapter begins, right straight +--------+------------------------' ahead and turn right into the nearby hut. | Large Pot..................

Cut down the pots and see what's in store. Now head back to the ramp and turn left. Take out the incoming Majini and jump across. A brief cut scene will initiate here. When it's over, jump down to the platform below. Work your way to the torch, and the crank on the right. Investigate, and Sheva will come over. Make a Quick Turn around and climb up the ladder on the right. Watch out for the incoming Majini. Dispose of them and jump across to the zebra carpet. Run straight ahead to the shields on the wall, and take a left. Veer off to the right and look for another small zebra carpet. The raft awaits you here. Don't expect a smooth ride. The water is filled with alligators, so you'll have to follow the various on-screen L1+R1 prompts to dodge. You have to do this a total of four times. Once the raft stops, climb up the ledge to the left and hit the Action Button kick the button, lowering the bridge. Go over to the door and open it. Turn left and jump across the zebra carpets again. Make your way across the newly formed bridge, and into the tunnel. Take note of the next two torches you come across. Blast them both to get treasures: Ruby (Pear) and Sapphire (Square). Continue through the tunnel and when you emerge back outside, you'll activate brief cut scene. You'll see a couple of tents to the right. Go inside and leave through the back opening to find two Wooden Barrels worth procuring. One of the tents also hold the very valuable First Aid Spray. Go over to the water pipe and you'll find a Jewel Beetle around there. Before going on, explore the small shelter to the left, which holds two Wooden Barrels. After procuring whatever they hold, continue along the path and you should begin to see the refineries. Go over to the metal door and open it up. Start by equipping your sniper rifle and picking off a couple of the Majini. Jump down and procure the Wooden Barrel to the left. Some Majini will start attacking you on the ground now, including a Cephalo. Clear them out and sprint straight ahead, up the steps and directly below the structures. Make your way to the large round Tricell tank and climb up the nearby ladder. Climb up another ladder after that, and after procuring the Wooden Barrels, turn the wheel to shut off one of the gas pipes. Some Majini will start attacking you from the left of the wheel. Pick them off and then jump down the nearby ledge. Go over to where the Majini were and speculate the two Wooden Barrels. Then climb up the nearby ladder. Pull on the lever and wait for the railing to get to you. Glide on over and... uh-oh! Here comes your friend, and mine, the Chainsaw Majini. If you have any Grenades, this would be the time to start chucking at them. You should also pick up the nearby Proximity Mine, and place it between the wheel and the sacks of flour (this is where he's going to climb up). Unfortunately, this isn't going to be enough to kill him. So switch to your Shotgun and start blasting away at its head. Be very careful to not reload when it is within Chainsaw range. Just keep blasting at its head and moving away when you have to reload until it dies. It will really help if you have been upgrading the capacity of your Shotgun. After taking it down, turn the wheel to deactivate the second gas pipe. Just one more to go. Jump down where the Chainsaw climbed up and sprint to the large Tricell tank again. Once again, climb up the ladder, but this time, instead of climbing up the second ladder, follow the ramp to the left, and up the two flight of stairs. Pull on the lever to summon the railing again. Turn on the final wheel to deactivate the final gas pipe. Open the door, and another Chainsaw Majini will show up. Just take care of him the same way as last time. After doing so, once again make your way back to the large circular Tricell tank and climb up the ladder. Finally, go down the stairs to the left and up the next few flight of stairs. A wave of Majini will come from where the Wooden Barrel is, so dispose of each of them. A grenade would help here. After taking them out, turn into the opening where the Majini came from and jump down below. Open the door and head on over to the next area. Watch the brief cut scene and get ready for a battle. It won't be anything serious, because they are just a bunch of basic Majini. Your goal for now is just to ensure nobody kills Captain Joseph. Be sure to procure the several Wooden Barrels around the room. The Majini will be coming from the two windows. So procure all the items, and stay near Captain Joseph. Soon he will activate the elevator, so hop in and go to the 2nd level. Sprint out of the elevator and make your way to the elevator, clearing out all the enemies in your path. There's a Cephalo here. Again, nobody should be a really grave threat. The Shotgun comes in very handy here. Once you make it to the final door, Captain Joseph will go to work on the control panel, and you should see a Chainsaw Majini appear. Don't panic--climb up the small ladder and pick up the Proximity Mine. You do not need to kill the Chainsaw here, but just to hold it off long enough for Joseph to open the door. Stand on the platform with your Sniper Rifle and start picking them off. Use any Grenades you may have too. It will only take a minute or two before the door is opened. Once it is, hop in. After the scene is over, run down the stairs and circle around to the next set of stairs. There's a metal door at the top of them, so go on through. On the other side, run up and take a right on the platform. Keep going in this direction until you find a small set of stairs leading downwards. Take note of the two Wooden Barrels in the shelter to the right. Keep advancing until the scene activates. After the scene, take note of the timer above. Don't worry though, you have plenty of time. Begin by making a Quick Turn and going to the alcove below. You should see a little briefcase there. Open it for the lucrative Gold Bars. Now turn up the ramp and start making your way towards your target. Blast the Majini along the way. Again, they are just the basic kind so they should be of no concern. Once you make it to the locked gate, shoot it down and proceed on through. On the other side are some dogs a Big Fat Majini. Just move right past them and down the set of stairs to the boats. Your boat is the boat on the right. If you still have some time, you can opt to not hit the Partner Action Button yet, and wait for the Big Man Majini to come down so you can blast him for the Jewel Bangle. Entirely optional. Hit the Partner Action Button to conclude the chapter. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK33]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 3 - 3 | This chapter will take place mostly on your +--------+------------------------' boat.

[ ] | '---------------------------------' Continue on down the ramp and you should see a Handgun ammo in the corner. Continue along this ramp and you pull the lever to lift the gate. Don't forget about the Wooden Barrel to the right of the lever. Some more enemies will spill in, beginning with one of those flying parasites. Blast them and continue back to your boat. For the next little bit, always try to look for explosive barrels because there are a bunch of them. As your boat approaches the first structure, there's a barrel on the left hand side. Be sure to Duck (Action Button) when you approach the structure. There's another pipe shortly after that. For the next little bit, you'll just have to take some time to clear out the various enemies with your Sniper Rifle. Switch to your Shotgun when the enemies get close. Another stoppage is coming soon. Jump up the platform to the left and procure the two Wooden Barrels. Make Quick Turn and follow the path here. There's a Rifle ammo on the rusty barrel. Grab it and follow the path to see some Majini jump down from above. Start picking them off and follow the path left to the gate. Be sure to pick off the Majini operating the Machine Gun up above. Continue along the path and you should see the first lever shortly. Procure the Shotgun Shells on the rusty crate, as well as the Wooden Barrel on the other side of the lever. Pull the lever and wait for Sheva to pull the other one to open the gate. Make your way back to the boat and hop on. It won't start moving until you pick off some enemies, so do so. Once the boat starts moving again, it's time for a boss battle. _____ (, / /+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ ___/__ r v i n g /---------------------------------------' +--(__ /---------------------------+/ B o s s B a t t l e # 4 [BB04] | Chapter 3-3 | This battle will be pretty basic. If you have a Rocket '---------------' Launcher, you can speed up the battle quite a bit, so I would recommend buying one if you could afford it. Anyway, there are 4 turrets on the ship, two there are similar to a grenade launcher, and two more that are like a machine gun. So once again, you won't have to worry about running low on ammo, which is always a plus. Begin by operating the turret directly in front, because this is where Irving will be first. Take note of the four tentacles. Go to work on them, one at a time. Watch out for the on-screen prompt to dodge, which will be the Action + Run Buttons this time. After blasting at the tentacles for a while, Irving will start swimming. Notice the yellow pouch on him, just to the right of the head. As it swims, start blasting away on it. After spending some time swimming, it will start attacking you with some tentacles, while staying hidden. Leave the turret for now and just focus on dodging his attacks. It won't be long before four new tentacles appear. Take the turret closest to it now and start blasting away. Again, after taking out the tentacles, it will start swimming with the yellow pouch exposed blast it for a while to do some damage. After a little bit Irving might swim all the way to the ship with its mouth open, which you'll have to dodge with the Action + Run Buttons. The final phase of the battle involves Irving opening his large mouth, and exposing the human Irving on the tip of its tongue. If you have a Rocket Launcher, you can finish the battle with a single rocket to the mouth. If not, just use the turret and blast away until the battle concludes, signalling the end of the chapter. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK41]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 4 - 1 | Begin by sprinting straight ahead, into the +--------+------------------------' small building ahead. You'll find a few | N300 Gold.................. [ ] | small pots in here, so procure each of | Large pot.................. [ ] | them. Leave through the exit to the left | N100 Gold.................. [ ] | and check out the large pot outside. Once | Topaz (Trilliant).......... [ ] | you're ready, take the path to the right | Emerald (Pear)............. [ ] | and into the caves. | Sapphire (Square).......... [ ] | | Sapphire (Pear)............ [ ] | Have your shotgun ready because a new type | Green Herb................. [ ] | of enemy will make its appearance soon. | Proximity Mine............. [ ] | They're called the Bui Kichwa, and they | Large Pots................. [ ] | look like large spiders. They are pretty | Sapphire (Trilliant)....... [ ] | quick, but contrary to the old axiom, you | Ruby (Trilliant)........... [ ] | _can_ defend speed. They will try to jump | Flash Rounds............... [ ] | on and latch on to you, which is their | Emerald (Square)........... [ ] | basic attack. The shotgun should be able to | Topaz (Square)............. [ ] | dispose of them easily though. | Ruby (Pear)................ [ ] | | Large Pot.................. [ ] | Anyway, let us continue along the path. '---------------------------------' Sprint past the ladder, and keep to the left hand side--ignore the pot and the light to the right. Keep going along the direction the left and you will soon find a single Large Pot in the corner holding a... N100 Gold? Nope, that's not what you came for, turn to the left of _that_ and you should find a ledge to climb up, which houses a very tucked away treasure chest. Open it up for the Topaz (Trilliant). Now turn around and make your way back to the ladder you sprint past at first. Take care of the Bui Kichwa along the way. At the top of the ladder are some more spiders, and some pots. Break each of them and continue down the path. Take note of the single torch to the right. Slash it with your knife to find the Emerald (Pear). Continue deeper into the cave, and take out any Bui Kichwa along the way (and there will be lots of them). Soon you'll come to another torch on the ground. Slash it with your knife to find the Sapphire (Square). Once you make it to the door and the torch to the left, you should see a sparkly object on the ground to the right. Cut it up the Sapphire (Pear). The torch by the door also holds a secret--cutting it up will reveal the Topaz (Pear). Now time to open up the door to the next area. Begin by sprinting down the passageway to the left. Jump down to the area below at the end of it. On the ground, take note of the two large pots to the left. Procure them and head through the opening up ahead. Jump down to the ground below when you are prompted. Down below, make a Quick Turn and go into the small tomb behind. The sarcophagus (casket) can be explored, so go up to it and hit the Partner Action button. You have come to what appears to be the motherload--unfortunately, most of the gold is only worth N100 and at most N200. Leave through the door on the left and you should find another single torch on the table. Slash it up for another tiny treasure. Head outside to activate a brief cut scene. After the scene, slice up the two pots to the left and drop down to the level below. Proceed to the path on the left and a group of Majini will appear. Most of them are pretty strong, so I hope you have a few grenades. Watch out for the jumping mothers with the mask and spears. Always keep an eye out for them. Work your way along the path to find a Green Herb near the middle. Continue up the stairs and destroy the oncoming enemies. A Cephalo awaits you at the top of the stairs. There's also a single large pot here, which holds a Red Herb (how convenient). Continue along here and a wave of Majini led by two with the shields will attack. Blast them up and head into the tomb they came from. Push open another one of those tombs to find more gold. Next, leave the tomb and take a left. Go through the next opening to the left to find some pots and also Ruby (Pear) in the casket where the skeleton is against the wall. Now continue along the path and cross the ramp to the right, to find another sarcophagus. Uh-oh! Once below, a large wave of basic enemies will start attacking. Dispose of each of them. Do not leave this area until you explore each passage way, because there are a count of 3 treasure chests down here. After procuring each of the treasures, head towards the daylight/opening. Equip your Sniper Rifle and look towards the statue ahead. There are a bunch of the shielded Majini there, so wait for them to turn and take them out. Now make your way into the room and procure all of the pots before going to the statue in the centre of the room. This will open the door here, but will also create a series of huge fireballs to start rolling around. Stick to the right as you run up and goto the huge torch on that side. Manuever around the fireballs and hit the Partner Action button the on door. Just keep sprinting ahead until you activate the brief cut scene. Now it's time for some ancient tomb sprinting, a la Indiana Jones. This sequence is pretty simple. You have to constantly be hitting the Run Button and to throw you off, the game will throw various on-screen prompts that you'll have to tap. So the first one is the Action Button to jump over a hole on the floor, the next is another jump with the Action Button, and IMMEDIATELY following that jump, you have to press L1+R1 to conclude the sequence. Now jump down the ledge below and pull on the chains to reveal a large staircase. Sprint down the staircase towards the door on the bottom. Turn left and procure the large pot to the left before continuing down the next flight of stairs in the room. Turn left as soon as you have the opportunity and follow the path here to the statue and waterfall. Hit the Investigate button and Sheva will tell you to grab the other chain. Turn around and sprint back to where you came from and turn left in the big hallway again. Keep going to the left and you should be back in the room where Sheva is, but on the other side. Hit the Partner Action button to complete the pulling. Grab the treasure and turn around to head back into the main hallway. This time, turn right to go up the new set of stairs and go up to the statue. Pull on the statue and wait for Sheva to get here. This time, you'll see the stairs become a bridge to the other side. Turn around and sprint across the new bridge. Turn right when you are able to and keep going until the scene initiates. Have your weapon ready for a fight. A Sniper Rifle of some sort works well here. The Majini will be coming from a bridge to the left mainly. Finish them off and switch to your Shotgun as you continue on. A pretty big wave of enemies will appear here, so start blasting away. After you've destroyed them, make your way to where the Majini are coming from. In that small area where Majini are, just sprint straight ahead to where the wall is and turn left. You should see a Majini with a crossbow here. Take care of him and continue ahead, and you should see a set of stairs leading downwards shortly. Take the stairs down then turn right immediately to go up the next set of stairs. Here's another statue so pull on the chains. From the statue, turn right and keep going in this direction towards the statue. After Investigating it, turn around and sprint straight ahead until you see the large staircase leading downwards to the left. Turn left once at the bottom floor again, and continue straight down this hallway. Turn left into the opening once more. You should see some Majini coming from the top. Equip your Sniper Rifle and start going to work on them. Some Bui Kichwa are on the ground floor here, so don't be caught off-guard. There's a pretty large wave of enemies, so don't pull on the chains until the coast is clear for a good minute or two. Once you do pull on the chain, wait for Sheva to run the stairs and do the same. Pick up the treasure and turn around. Stick to the left wall and go in this direction until you see the burning wood and the large pots. There's a Proximity Mine here. Turn around now and go back towards the main hallway. Sprint up the large stairs to the right when you see them. Take a right once upstairs to the statue Sheva was at to pick up the treasure. Quick Turn and sprint in this direction for a bit. Instead of going downstairs right away, turn left at the small torch and keep going in this direction to find a treasure chest containing some Flash rounds. Now head down the stairs and turn right when you can. You should see another one of those statues. Go over and pull the chains to initiate a boss battle. You've dealt with one of these buggers before. But this time, believe it or not, is going to be even easier. Begin by looking for the stairs in the corner of the room to the right. Once you find them, sprint straight up and don't turn around. Once you reach the very top, you'll have to hit the Run button to dodge -- do so and this will end the battle. However, keep in mind that if you want the Soul Gem, you'll have to defeat it normally. If you want to do so, you can use the Proximity Mine you found earlier to stun it and blast the belly. If you're out of explosives, you can also stun it by blasting its belly with your weapon. Either way, defeat the boss and run up the stairs to conclude the chapter. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK42]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 4 - 2 | Begin by sprinting up the stairs and +--------+------------------------' turning left.

However, if you go right there are two Large pots there. Procure the N100 Gold and go up the stairs. You'll find the Sea Emblem on the structure to the left. 1/3 down. There's also a large pot on the right of the emblem. After grabbing this Emblem, you should hear the war cry of the Giant Majini. Have your shotgun and/or Grenades ready. Go down the stairs and you will be met with some Majini resistance. The Giant Majini is stuff, but even it won't be able to handle an onslaught of Shotgun Shells. The Giant Majini's attacks are pretty telegraphed, so when it looks like it'll attack, focus on not getting hit before continuing your attack. Before heading through the opening ahead, watch out for the sunbeam. It won't kill you, but it will do some heavy damage. The best time to proceed is IMMEDIATELY after the sunbeam comes, and while the ground is still burning. It won't deal any damage, and when the ground is still burning it ensures that you have the most time until the next beam comes. Anyway, so now that we have a little strategy in mind, head through the opening and follow the path. Turn right when you see the stairs. Insert the Emblem for a Checkpoint. Turn around and look to take the path to the left. You should see another sunbeam soon. Again, wait for the ground to be burning and sprint! You won't be able to run straight ahead, so look for the little alcove to the right near the middle to take a break. You should also be able to see a sparkly object on the wall. Slash it with your knife for the Sapphire (Square). After a bit, continue along the path and turn right again for a Checkpoint. There's a Cephalo in this hallway, so dispose of him quickly. There's also a guy holding two torches on the stairs to the left, so be quick. Make your way to the burning structure and make a Quick Turn. There's a Majini with a crossbow in the balcony to the left. Majini also drop down from a ledge to the right of where you are currently standing so keep an eye out in that direction. Dispose of the enemies and grab the Earth Emblem. Make a Quick Turn and go towards the stairs on the left that lead upwards. There are two large pots here, so check them out. The adjacent path is another one with sunbeam. Again, watch for the fire on the ground and immediately turn right on to the path. Sprint in this direction for a while, and once again stop in the alcove to the right near the middle. Wait for another beam to happen and go again. Keep sprinting straight ahead until you reach the Checkpoint. Be sure to also explore the pot to the right. Don't stop there, though, follow the path here to reach a dead-end corner with a single torch. Slash the torch for an Emerald (Pear). But that's not all-- () equip your Sniper Rifle and look upwards, to the left. You should see a Majini standing by a big torch. If you blast him in the head, it will shut off one of the beams. Go back to where the checkpoint was, and explore the alternative path up ahead. You should notice that the sunbeam is still active here. Equip your Sniper Rifle and you should also see some shielded Majini approaching you. You don't have to blast them, because they will destroyed by the beam. As soon as that happens, make a full sprint across the path and don't bother turning until you reach the next Checkpoint. There's an Assisted Jump here, and Sheva will also be greeted with a few Majini immediately. Provide some support with your Sniper Rifle from this side and she will soon grab the Sky Emblem--the final piece of the puzzle. Before you start celebrating though, turn your attention to the large pots to the right. Soon a pretty angry Giant Majini will drop down to attack you for stealing his emblem. If you took care of the other Majini though, it should be just the lone Giant Majini now so it shouldn't be too difficult. Dispose of him and pick up the Blue Enigma. Quick Turn now make your way back to the sunbeam path. You should know how to handle it by now. Sprint straight ahead until you see the opening to the right. Go down the stairs but don't jump the gun. Wait at the bottom of the stairs a bit for another sunbeam. Now run straight ahead and turn left when you can. Once again, wait for the sunbeam. Once it appears, take a right and sprint to the stairs on the left. Go up and insert the final Emblem on to the door. Sprint straight up the long staircase. When you see the door, shoot the shiny object directly above for the Diamond (Trilliant). Open the door to the next area. Sprint straight down the stairs to the door and walk into your first mirror puzzle. It's not really a puzzle though. Pull up your map and begin by sprinting to the right and circling around to the marker. Go behind the closest mirror and turn it to the left, directly on to the mirror to solve this one quickly. Get on the target platform now and hit the Partner Action Button to head downstairs. Begin by sprinting towards the marker and taking a left towards the pillar. Hit the Action Button close by to kick it down. Now make your way to the mirror directly across from the target (diagonally). Grab it and turn it left so it's facing the mirror in the centre. Make your way to said mirror in the centre and turn it right, so it's facing the light. Now kick down the pillar to solve this puzzle. Go on to the marker and hit the Partner Action button. ___________________________ | | | | This final puzzle is a little difficult, so I | s | felt a diagram would be most helpful here. It's | 2 3 | pretty self explanatory for the most part, but do | | note that "a" is the stationery beam, which is | t | not movable. Point "t" is the treasure chest, but |- -| don't bother opening it because it's a trap, and |y x| will it just release a bunch of Bui Kichwa. |- 5 -| Points "y" and "x" are the two rooms that contain | | a bunch of treasure. Point "s" is the statue with | 1 4 | the ball in its mouth. Here's how to solve: | a | | start | All right, begin by going to mirror number 1, and |___________|end|___________| turning it right so it faces the treasure chest. Go now to mirror 2, and turn it right so it faces the mirror in the centre. The next point is to goto mirror 3, and turn this to the right so the beam is directed at mirror 2. This should cause the beam to be directed at the statue and points x and y to open. Go inside to find the Beetle (Gold) in point y and an Idol (Gold) in point x. In the room with the bunch of pots, watch out for the snakes. I would recommend standing clear of them and blasting a bunch of them at the same time with a single Shotgun Shell. Note that there's a Emerald (Pear) to the left of the Idol, on the ground. It's easy to miss it. Anyway, back to the puzzle. Go to mirror 1 and turn it left so the beam is facing the wall. Go to mirror 5 and turn it left so it's facing point a. Now go back to mirror 1 and turn it to the right so the beam is facing mirror 5 to solve the puzzle. Make your way to the end-point, but make sure that you don't touch the beam because that's an instant death. Just walk slowly to the marker and hit the Partner Action button to conclude the chapter. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK51]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 5 - 1 | Begin by heading up the stairs in the +--------+------------------------' middle of the area and circling to the | Handgun Ammo...............

Continue down the hallway to the door that requires you to turn the wheel. Go inside and pull the lever directly ahead. After the brief sequence, go to the glass and slash it open with your knife. Go into the hallway and turn left to find the next passage. Keep going in this direction and turn left again to activate a sequence. Here is the Licker Beta. These guys are TOUGH man. They can eat some serious damage before going down. Your best chance is to use the Shotgun (I hope you've been upgrading). Blast it a few times and pick up the Lion Heart. Then, continue down the hallway to the door. Turn it open and procure the wooden crate inside. Next, head through the hallway. Before going up the stairs, look for the room with a shiny briefcase. Inside is the AK-47 and also a safe with Gold Bars. Head up the stairs and check out the wooden crate at the top for a Machine Gun Ammo. Pull the lever to the right of that and open the door at the end of the hallway. Sheva comments that they probably don't hear you. Your instincts probably tell you to proceed slowly. Let me tell you right now that your instincts are sorely mistaken. Sprint STRAIGHT ahead down the next few hallways. Do not stop. Keep going until you find the elevator to Investigate. You'll see that the elevator is stalling. Don't worry. Turn around and have some Grenades ready if you have them. Once the Lickers start pouring in, start with Grenades (but be absolutely sure that you have a few for the upcoming boss battle) and follow them with Sniper Rifle fire. It won't take long until the elevator gets here. Turn around and spam the Partner Action button to conclude this phase. Go towards those little shelves to find various Ammo in there. Then, turn right to activate a scene, and at the conclusion of that is another boss battle. __ __) (, / / / /+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ / / 8 /---------------------------------------' +--(___(_--------------------------+/ B o s s B a t t l e # 5 [BB05] | Chapter 5-1 | All right, begin right away by hitting L1 + R1 for a dodge.

Now move towards its mouth with a Grenade and activate the "Toss-in" action when it prompts. If you don't have any Grenades, blast it with your weapon. After that, reset the process and open fire on the pouch. Once you stun it again, toss in another Grenade. Repeat the process a few more times and this will be history. If you don't have any Grenades this battle is a lot tougher, so it is strongly advised that you save some Grenades for the fight. Anyway, watch the remaining scenes to conclude the chapter. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK52]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 5 - 2 | Let us begin by sprinting straight down the +--------+------------------------' catwalk ahead.

Equip your Sniper Rifle and begin picking off the guy at the crates. Now emerge from the tank and open fire on the Majini. You can also use your Grenades if you have any to speed up the process a bit. Either way, defeat each of them and make your way to the door. Before heading through, you might want to turn into the little room to the left of it to find a couple of crates. Procure whatever is inside and head through the door. Proceed down the hallway and check out the two wooden crates. Continue on and into the next room. You are immediately greeted by some Majini. Fight your way up the stairs and don't forget about the four crates at the foot of each flight of stairs. When you make up the stairs, some reinforcements will spill into the room. There's a gas tank to the right of them, so blast it for a quick remedy. Take cover at the wooden crates and begin the fight with the enemies in the next room. There's another gas tank there, so look for it. Proceed to the catwalk on the left and look for the elevator to goto the next area. Grab the Green Herb and procure the wooden crate. Proceed down the hallway to the left and you should see a few Licker Beta shortly. Try to see if you can get by without getting noticed. If that fails, the worst case scenario is just you filling their craniums with shotgun shells. Anyway, turn right at the end of _this_ hallway to find another passage. You won't be able to avoid the Licker Beta this time around, so start blasting away. Proceed to the end of this hallway and turn to the left to the next door. This next room is immediately dangerous so sprint down this catwalk and quickly check out the two crates before jumping down below. Turn to your left and dispatch of the Majini here. Print straight ahead and turn right to climb up the ladder when you see it. Fast-equip to your Sniper Rifle and pick off the Majini up ahead. Turn to the right and dispatch of the two to the left of the conveyor belt's end. There's another guy on the ground to the left of them, too. The next Majini to attack is the one at the catwalk above you. Now proceed to the end of your own catwalk and jump down. Proceed to the yellow railing and procure the Wooden Crates nearby. If you are still getting attacked, chances are it's from some guy standing near the light at the end of the conveyor belt. Speaking of which, you should head over there now. Go up the small stairs, and jump down on to the conveyor belt through the little opening to the right. Now you'll have to run against the conveyor's belt motion, and jump up the catwalk to the right when you are able. Head up the stairs and open the door above to the next area. Some more enemies are here. Begin with the Majini at the catwalk above. Now jump on to the conveyor belt with your Sniper Rifle handy. Look to the catwalk above and you should see a gas tank. Blast it with your rifle to dispatch of the Majini up there. Proceed along the conveyor belt, but check with your Sniper Rifle every few steps for some Majini. When they drop down to the belt, fire a bullet at a nearby gas tank to kill them instantly. Also check for the Majini that will enter to the catwalk above. Anyway, jump up the catwalk to the left at the end of the conveyor belt when you get there. Just head down the nearby stairs and open up the large briefcase on the table ahead. Inside, you will find the SIG 556, a machine gun. It's not quite as good as the AK-47 in my view, so you might want Sheva to pick this one up. Don't forget about the crates to the left of the dumpsters. Head up the small stairs near the SIG 556 and continue up the next flight. Go straight ahead until you see the next set of stairs going downwards to the right. Proceed along this catwalk for a bit and past the egg on the wall. Turn left and you should soon see some Machine Gun Ammo on the crate. Proceed along the catwalk to the stairs ahead. Turn right at the top to find a bunch of crates on the table, along with a Green Herb. Now proceed to the marker and pull the lever. Turn around and follow the arrow downstairs. Continue on this catwalk, and go right this time. Soon a Reaper will drop from above. Nothing some Shotgun Shells can't handle, though. Dispose of it and pick up the Power Stone. Now run up the stairs behind it, and proceed down the small set of stairs after to the marker. Pull the lever to get the conveyor belt going. Drop down on to the belt and just go towards the fire at the end at first, and switch to the conveyor belt to the right when you are able. Run on the black strip between the two conveyor belts until you get the prompt to pick up the Dead Bride's Necklace. Keep running against the conveyor belt until you see the opening to the right, to get back on to the other belt. Do so and climb up the nearby catwalk. Proceed to the crates on the crates (lol) and check them out. Now head up the nearby stairs and to the marker to the next area. Follow the hallway and jump down the ledge at the bottom. Be sure to check out the crates to the right. When you're ready, take a deep breath, and prepare for the rematch against Uroboros. __ __) (, / / / / / /+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ (___(_ r o b o r o s (rematch) /-------------------------------------' +----------------------------------+/ B o s s B a t t l e # 6 [BB06] | Chapter 5-2 | This battle is completely different than the last one, and it '---------------' will be treated as such. The only thing in common as last time is the fact that fire is still your main weapon against him. This time, however, the flames will come in the form of a flamethrower. When the fight begins, immediately Quick Turn and sprint straight forward to the wall. This is where the flamethrower is, so take note of it. You won't be able to use it yet, because it's charging. This is something else of note--even after it finishes charging initially, once you deplete the flames in the tank (IE the flamethrower "ammo" goes from 100 to 0), you have to put the flamethrower back to allow it to charge again. For the actual strategy, take note of the three gas tanks around the area. There's one on the centre pillar, and there's two more to the left and the right. We aren't going to be able to strategize with the tanks this time around, so just make sure that you damage the Urobros with them. Take some time to deal some damage with the gas tanks while the flamethrower charge. When the flamethrower is ready, you will get a little cut scene. Go grab the flamethrower (if you're done blowing up the gas tanks), get right in front of the Uroboros and start firing away. You might take a tentacle attack for your troubles, but it's worth it if you can get hit once for emptying half of your tank. Speaking of the Uroboros attacks, watch for the Dodge prompt (Action Button + Run Button). Also, watch for the Uroboros to do a little "degenerating" attack, where it will dissipate completely, and suddenly rebuild itself close to you. Don't get caught off-guard by this. If you get in trouble, note that there's a First Aid Spray near the surgical chair, and another one in the cabinet to the left of the flamethrower. If you start this battle with full health, you should have no problem winning. I do want to note that while your flamethrower is charging, switch to your shotgun or Sniper Rifle and start blasting the yellow bulbs on its arms to deal damage. Just keep charging your flamethrower, blasting it with flames, and shooting its yellow bulbs until it goes down to conclude the chapter. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK53]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 5 - 3 | All right, make your way to the newly +--------+------------------------' opened door to the right.

Help yourself through and take out your Sniper Rifle. Look to the catwalk across and you'll see an incoming wave of three Majini. Take cover behind the metal covers if you need to. There are also some crates in the short side to the right. After disposing of the Majini, continue down the catwalk and explore the room to the left for some items. Whenever you're ready, make your way further down the catwalk and soon a Reaper will descend on you. Equip your Shotgun and open fire on the glowing bulb on its chest to deal the most damage. After taking care of it, make a jump across the gap in the catwalk. Follow the catwalk for a bit and another one will attack, so be ready with your Shotgun. A Majini armed with a Stun Rod is advancing from the left, so take care of it and sprint down that direction to the door. Two more Majini will stand in your way towards the door, but they should be nothing new. Procure the various Wooden Crates in here, as well as all the items on the shelf. Most importantly though, don't forget about the PSG-1 Sniper Rifle. It's has semi-automatic capabilities, but it's not quite as powerful as the Dragonuv. Leave the room when you're ready and make your way down to the catwalk. Another Reaper will attack, and you know how to take care of it. Now make your way to the lever (marker) and pull on it. Two Majini will appear on the sliding elevator, so open fire on them with your Sniper Rifle. When the elevator gets here, get on it and Sheva will pull on the lever to get you across. Aim to the right to rout the enemy to the right. When you arrive on the catwalk, you will be greeted by a couple of Cephalo. Take care of them and wait for Sheva to get on the elevator you came from. Once she does, pull the lever to tell her to GET OVER HERE. When the elevator arrives, circle to the right on the catwalk to activate a brief cinematic. Immediately after the scene's conclusion, get out your sniper rifle and aim to the Majini to the left of the door, holding the rocket launcher. Pick him off and look way to the left of the catwalk to see another Majini, who turns out to be a Cephalo. Continue along the catwalk to the left, and a few more basic Majini will attack. Once you make up the small stairs, you'll see yet another one with a rocket launcher. You'll also see a door, but don't go in just yet. Follow the catwalk until you see the large window. Take cover under it (you can lean against the wall), and ready your Grenade. Throw a couple in there to immediately rout the Majini. Go through the nearby door when the coast is clear. Grab the Green Herb sitting on the controls, and don't forget about the rest of the items on the desks, crates etc. Now kick open the door leading inside, and follow the hallway to the next door. Hit the Partner Action button and head to the next area. Sprint straight ahead and don't forget about the Green Herb on the floor. Turn your attention to the bunch of crates to see what you can find. Then, sprint directly on the catwalk to get into the room with all the body cases again. Continue downwards and make your way to the controls on the big circle on the bottom. Make your way to the control panel and hit the Partner Action button. The elevator will start spinning now. Turn your attention to the various Majini positioned on the balconies. Aiming is a little tough, but you should still be able to get the hang of it. The only real adjustment you have to make is to initially direct the scope a little bit to the left of the Majini. It might take a few practice shots before you get them all, so don't be shy to take a few to get the timing down. Once the elevator reaches the top, turn your attention first to the Majini standing at the top of the catwalk. Blast them and proceed on to that long catwalk yourself. Make your way into the hallway and to the interesting looking door to the next area. Look towards the ceiling as you make your way down this hallway. As you approach the exit, you should see a sparkly object near the final light. This is the Ruby (Brilliant). Continue into the next room and take note of the wooden crates close to the door on the right. Still staying close to this door/building, circle around to the back and you will find a lever. Pull on it to power the lift operator. Turn around and run forward/left and you will soon find the machine. Don't forget about the crates to the left of that. It's important to stock up on some stuff, because a pretty tough sequence is coming up. Pull on the lever to bring down the lift. Sheva might insist, but it is important for you to be the one to go up instead; so hit the "Command Partner" action on the lever to get her there. Hop on to the lift and have your strongest weapon ready for the incoming onslaught of Licker Beta. When the first one appears, take a few steps back and open fire on it. The second one is coming shortly after that, so be ready to take him out. Sprint forward on the catwalk and wait for the next scene telling you that some more are on the way. Retreat back to where the lift was and wait there-- do not fire. With any luck, Sheva will be blasting away, and the Lickers will crawl down towards her (they are blind, and are sensitive to sound). Switch to your Sniper Rifle, and sprint to where the Lickers crawled down. You should also see the Jump Down prompt there, but don't take it. Instead, start picking off the Lickers from here. Sheva will have to tank a few shots, but it's all for a good cause. After disposing of these two, make your way down the catwalk to the other side. Cut up the wooden crate for some Flame Rounds. Make your way to the catwalk with the fence and take aim at the wall below the platform you were just on. You should see some incoming Lickers, so pick them off with your Sniper Rifle. Keep watching until the coast is clear, then push the junk blocking your way. Jump down to the platform below when you're finished. Drop down into the building and pull the lever to lower the bridge. Now open up the door and let Sheva through. Go first to the lockers and open them for three very valuable items: Chalice (Gold), First Aid Spray, and Magnum Rounds. Be sure to pick up the Magnum Rounds because they will come in handy later. Now leave this room and cross that bridge. Be sure to blast the Topaz (Brilliant) sparkling above the doorway before leaving to initiate the boss battle. __ __) (, ) | / | /| /+-----------------------------------------------------------------+ |/ |/ e s k e r /--------------------------------------' +-----/--|--------------------------+/ B o s s B a t t l e # 6.5 [BBYY] | Chapter 5-3 | Watch the scene and you will come to a shocking revelation. '---------------' Jill will be supporting Wesker with machine gun fire. Don't attack her, because if she dies, you will be taken to the Your Partner is Dead screen. All right, let us begin this battle. If you want to skip this whole first phase, turn around and Investigate the door to activate the cut scene and go to the third paragraph. If you want to experience it, read on to the second. Wesker will tell you that he only has seven minutes, and this translates into real time. This first phase will only last 7 minutes. You basically just need to run around for now, and survive. Try to minimize the damage that you take from Jill's machine gun, and be sure to watch for the Dodge prompt to avoid Wesker's gun shots. Finally, when you see that Wesker is dashing towards you, repeatedly tap the Action Button, and you should soon see the "Counterattack" prompt. If you tap the button face enough, you will indeed counter Wesker. Don't bother shooting at him, just try to avoid Jill's attacks and counter Wesker whenever possible. After 7 minutes pass, you will witness a brief cinematic, and Chris will be kicked through the door. Turn around, sprint up the stairs and just keep going down the hallway. Keep to the right hand side and go through the opening when you see it. Go into the room after that and push open the coffin to find the L. Hawk (Magnum), a very powerful weapon, Sapphire (Brilliant), and Emerald (Oval). Now turn around and leave these rooms. Pull up your map and look for the big moving blip, which is Wesker. As it looks like he is getting close, lean against the wall and get your shotgun ready. As soon as you see him, open fire on him immediately. Stay in front of him for a while, but don't bother shooting. If you see that he dashes towards you (as opposed to walking), keep tapping the Action button to counter attack him. You can just run around for another five minutes or so, and this battle will be over. Watch the next scene and come back for the battle that we have all been waiting for. _____ (, / / ___/_+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ / / i l l V a l e n t i n e /--------------------------------------' +-(__ /-----------------------------+/ B o s s B a t t l e # 7 [BBZY] | Chapter 5-3 | You won't need any guns for this battle, so don't worry about '---------------' those. The key to victory for you is the Action Button. Begin by sprinting down the stairs to the larger battlefield below. Run close to Jill and keep tapping the Action Button to have Chris call out to her. If you do this enough, it will cause her to stop in her tracks and hold her hands to her ears. Once that happens, run up behind her and Grab her. Sheva will now go to grab the object out of her chest while you have to keep tapping the Run Button. The first time won't be enough, and after she breaks free be quick to activate the Dodge prompt to avoid getting attacked. Sheva will also get the best of Jill here and there, where she will perform her leg-scissor takedown. At which point sprint to Jill's body and keep tapping the Action Button to sit down on her chest and begin the grabbing process (this is sounding kind of wrong). Immediately after a failed attempt of grabbing, be ready for the Dodge prompt. If you get into trouble, there are two Green Herbs at the foot of both stairs.

The guy to keep an eye | Green Herb................. [ ] | out for is the one who is standing on the | Wooden Crate............... [ ] | highest level to the right. This will make | Jail Breaker (Shotgun)..... [ ] | sense soon. | Tanker Keycard A........... [ ] | | Tanker Keycard B........... [ ] | Anyway, jump down the two platforms now '---------------------------------' and rout the two dogs. Climb up the ladder to the left and you will find a bunch of Wooden Crates. There are a few more crates on the catwalk you are standing on. Procure everything and jump down to the level below and go up the small stairs up ahead. Head down the stairs at the end of the short catwalk and stick to the left. A few more dogs will peak out so blast them with your Shotgun. Immediately after disposing of the dogs, make a Quick Turn and you should see the Big Man Majini coming (it'll probably be too late). Start by taking him out and grabbing the Jewel Bangle. Continue along the path now and stick to the left. Move past the flag and jump down to the area below. Check out the two wooden crates. Take the path to the right now and take another right when you can. Keep going in this direction and then take a left. Go up to the big tank looking thing, and press the Action Button on the button to the left. Run through for a checkpoint. Go over to the wooden crates and procure the two N100 Gold. Climb up the ladder hit the Partner Action button push the junk up ahead. Now jump down towards the left. Turn to the right and climb up the ladder. Slash the Wooden Crate to the right and pick up the N100 Gold. Don't forget about the Green Herb. After procuring it, turn to the right for a Checkpoint. Immediately make another right and another Big Man Majini will attack. Quick dispose of it and also help Sheva take out the other one. Move on to the green ground and wait there. Sheva will shoot the switch soon, allowing you to ascend. Shoot the switch to the left of the lift for Sheva as well. Proceed to the path to the right and jump down to the area below. Drop down to below and look for the path to the left to jump down once more. Watch out for the jumping dog. Proceed up the nearby stairs and hit the Partner Action Button to the next area. Begin by grabbing the Machine Gun Ammo and Green Herb on the shelf. Now go down the stairs to the right, behind the shelf. Keep going down the stairs until you reach the very bottom. Slash the Wooden Crate and most importantly don't forget about the briefcase for the Jail Breaker shotgun. Now go to the marker to initiate a cut scene. After the scene, begin by kicking down the door in front. Turn to the left into the opening and have your Sniper Rifle ready. Start blasting away at the Majini. Take a quick scan of the whole room and pick them off. After that, continue down the catwalk and drop down to the area below. Proceed along and take cover behind the crates. As you fight to the middle of the crates, a brief cut scene will initiate. A Gatling Gun Majini will approach from the stairs to the right. Have your Shotgun ready, and don't be afraid to get nasty and get right in his grill. Shoot him with your weapon and go for the melee attack. Some really cool ones like the Haymaker and the Backhand can be used, so check them out! After taking him out, pick up the Tanker Keycard A. You're likely going to be on the stairs where the Gatling Gun Majini was, so move across to the stairs on the side of the marker (check your map), and move across the catwalk to the safe. Open it up for the second keycard. Go over to your marker and use the keycards to conclude the chapter. ______________ * Notes 1. If you come across a Majini that, after dying, has its whole body taken over by a parasite that doesn't resemble the Cephalo, you need to shoot the parasite on its leg to damage it. After a few shots, it will drop to its knees and reveal its head, at which point you must shoot its face. It's called a Duvalia, by the way. 2. If you are looking for the elusive Topaz (Oval) treasure, you must kill the Majini operating the crane (that eventually drops the cage on Sheva) at the very beginning the level and pick it up on the ground later. Check the Treasure Locations for details. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK62]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 6 - 2 | This is going to be a pretty short chapter. +--------+------------------------' Begin by going down the stairs and taking | Green Herb.................

[ ] | You're going to get one of those | Wooden Crate x 2........... [ ] | interactive sequences, but it's pretty '---------------------------------' simple. Begin by watching for the first Dodge (which will be the Action Button), almost immediately after that is the Partner Action Button. Then, Action Button again, and quickly Partner Action once more. After that, you'll have to hit the L1+R1 Buttons, before repeatedly tapping the Run Button to complete the sequence. Once inside, just sprint straight down the hallway, but be ready to hit the Duck Button when it's prompted. It will happen right before the Green Herb. Next, turn into the door immediately to the right and look for the opening to the left shortly after. Take the hallway for a bit, and another Duck sequence is coming up. Shortly after that, make your way through the door to the left. Inspect the two lockers for Rifle Ammo (you will soon need all the ammo you can get). After that, kick open the door to your right to emerge back into the hallways. Turn left and head towards the stairs while tapping the Action Button because one more Duck sequence will happen. Run up the stairs and turn left into the room. Look for the lockers; the one in the middle holds a Chalice (Gold). Grab the Green Herb on the table and leave the room. You should notice a Majini on the ground up above. If you have learned anything from this game, it should be that never believe a zombie on the ground is dead for a moment. Indeed, that Majini will spring to life, so blast it and continue down the hallway. Great-- more of them. If you have a few Grenades, this would be a good time to do something really, really cool. Either way, the Duvalia will drop a Bridge Keycard, so pick it up and head through the door at the end of the hallway. Use the Keycard on the door to the right and proceed up the stairs in this next room. Turn left up one more set of stairs and hit the Partner Action Button to emerge back outside. Procure the two nearby Wooden Crates, and head up the stairs and through the gate for a boss battle. _____) / )__+--------------------------------------------------------------------+ / x c e l l a G i o n n e /--------------------------------------' +--(_____)--------------------------+/ B o s s B a t t l e # 8 [BB08] | Chapter 6-2 | Am I the only one who was just a bit disappointed we don't '---------------' get to see that hot piece of ass anymore? Anyway... this fight will be fairly simple. It will help if you have some high powered weapons like an upgraded Shotgun or L.Hawk at your disposal. Begin by turning around and using the Bridge Keycard to grab the Stinger Missile. Now lock on to one of the four orange bulbs (you have to follow the bulb with your Right Analog stick as it moves to ensure it locks on), and fire a missile at the bulb to take one down instantly. Drop the Stinger temporarily and open fire on another bulb with one of your high-powered weapons. Try to see which bulb Sheva is attacking, so you can concentrate on one together to bring it down faster. Also keep an eye out for the little parasites she spits on to the deck. They will go down from even a single M92F shot, so save the heavy mustard for Excella. Work down the 4 orange bulbs and eventually she will show one giant bulb (you'll know when you see it). Pick up the Stinger Missile, lock-on, and fire a missile at it. She will now have this phase where all of her bulbs will be raised to the sky (and will change colour, to pink I think). At this point it is absolutely crucial that you shoot down one of them, otherwise it will be game over. After you shoot one of them down, the fight will reset, and you will have to shoot at the orange bulbs until she shows the big bulb again. At this point, you might find it useful to climb up the ladder, because all those parasites are probably filling up the bottom deck by now. You just need to repeat the process until this fight ends, and thus concluding the chapter. +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, ) | / | || | | /| / | ||_ | | / |/ a l k t h r o u g h | |/\\ |+----|/--|----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | ' -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [WK61]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | C h a p t e r 6 - 3 | Kick open the gate and head down the stairs +--------+------------------------' below.

Next, move to the left on the catwalk for a bit and rout the Majini below. Look to the right for another one between the two structures. Now continue to the catwalk on the left and jump down to the floor below. Go to the opening to the left that allows you to jump down. Before doing so, pick off the Majini down there, by the water. Jump down now and climb up the ladder. Go up the stairs to the right, and follow the path left. Pull the lever at the end to open the bulkhead. Turn around now, and go down the stairs and turn right. Two Majini will immediately charge. Go back to where the lever was, and have your weapon in aim mode for the incoming Cephalo--there should be two of them. Go down the stairs and take cover at the middle (of the three) structures and pick off the Majini up ahead. After jumping across to the other platform, watch out for the rocket launcher yielding Majini to the left. Clean up the rest of them and go pull on the lever to open another bulkhead. Make a Quick Turn and get ready for the incoming Reaper. As soon as it appears, open fire on its belly with your Shotgun to make quick work them. Pick up the Power Stones and just stay put right near the newly opened bulkhead door for now. Wait a bit until the Gatling Gun Majini appear from the ground on the platform across. If you have any Grenades, it's a good time to spam them all here, because they are pretty much useless for the final parts of the game. If you are getting in a lot of trouble, look for the ladder to go up to the catwalk above. There are two doors here, if you goto the one on the left, you will find two Proximity Mines on a table and a First Aid Spray. If you set the Proximity Mines at the foot of the door, as soon as the Gatling Gun Majini come in they will be dealt heavy damage. Follow with all the Grenades that you have with Shotgun Fire immediately behind it. I would also strongly recommend having your L.Hawk here, because it helps a lot. If you need Ammo, upgrade its capacity. __ __) (, ) | / | /| /+-----------------------------------------------------------------+ |/ |/ e s k e r /--------------------------------------' +-----/--|--------------------------+/ F i n a l B a t t l e [BB09] | Chapter 6-3 | All I can say is, here we go. Begin by immediately turning '---------------' to the right and running to this corner to find a lever. Pulling on it will turn off the light in this section. Run to each of the corners to shut off the lights, because this will help conceal you to be able to attack Wesker without him seeing and blinking away. After you have shut off all the lights, return to your starting point and you'll find a glass container holding a Rocket Launcher. You'll need to slash the glass with your knife, of course. Pick up the Rocket Launcher and pull up your map. Watch for the big blip again, which is Wesker. Get pretty close to him, but stay hidden. Use the structures in the middle to your advantage. When it looks like he's close enough for you to land a rocket, fire it at him and if you did it correctly, there will be a brief cinematic where he grabs the rocket with his hands and hold it off. Immediately sprint closer to him, and fire a shotgun shell (because it has splash damage) on the rocket--note that Sheva might have also fired at the rocket. Either way, it will blow up Wesker's face, and you need to immediately run up to him and hit the Action Button to Restrain him. If Sheva is nearby, and she should be, she will inject Wesker with the syringe, and finish him off. If Sheva wasn't close enough, Wesker will break free. If that's the case, return to the starting point and climb up the ladders. You'll find a glass case (similar to the one containing the Rocket Launcher) with a bunch of extra rockets in there, so go up there to grab another one and try again. After you pull it off successfully, you will initiate a cut scene. Don't get too comfortable watching this scene, because Wesker will eventually charge at Chris (it happens on the ship as immediately after he says "complete global saturation"). You should just be constantly tapping the Action Button (for Dodge) if you are not sure what I'm talking about. After that, follow the on-screen prompts that consist mostly of the Action Button, but the final action is L1+R1 to "save". When this scene concludes, it's time for the absolute final battle. +----+ | 1. | Volcano Stage +----+------------------------------------+ Begin by turning to the left and procuring the Wooden Crates. You will find some much-needed ammo here. After you've gotten everything, advance along the path to initiate a cut scene. +-------------------+ | Diamond (Marquis) | +-------------------+ If you want the Diamond (Marquis), turn around and go towards the bridge, but don't walk on it. Shoot the rock that appears to be the same type of rock as the bridge, and it sticks out to the right. Hit it a few times, and if you've done it correctly, the rock should collapse. Now walk on to the bridge, and let it collapse. Once you are on the bottom, turn to the left and jump along the rocks here. You should see it the Diamond now. Retrieve it and jump back to where you were when you dropped. +------------------+ | Battle continued | +------------------+ Whether you grabbed the Diamond (Marquis) or not, you still have Wesker to deal with. Begin by walking on to the bridge and allowing it to collapse. Move up the nearby hill and grab the Green Herb if you'd like. You will see Wesker approaching. Move to the ledge right next to the small hill so you can get a glimpse of his back as he moves up. After you see the sequence showing the glowing bulb behind his back, blast it and you will see some yellow fluid spill out. Hit him a few more times, and he will jump over to the ledge where Sheva is standing. Eventually she will be forced off the cliff and is in danger. Don't bother going to her, because you won't be able to. Instead, aim at Wesker and blast him a few times to get his attention to you. You will now have to hit the Square Button to dodge a few of his attacks to allow Sheva to get to safety. After that, drop down to the ledge below on the right, and begin pushing the boulder. Follow the on-screen sequences to push the boulder over. When Sheva gets to safety, spend the next little bit retreating to where you were when you dropped. This will initiate the final phase of the fight. When he does the thing where he sticks up his arm, you have to run behind him and blast his orange bulb. The best way to do this is to run past him and make a Quick Turn when you are behind (L.Hawk is invaluable in this fight). There are a couple of attacks you need to watch out for. One is when he sticks his arm into the ground. When he does this, he's trying to attack you with one of his tentacles, so just run around the arena and you should be fine. The next is a tentacle swing, it is usually accompanied with an on-screen prompt, so keep an eye out for that. You just need to repeat the process until you see the orange bulb in the front. At which point, when he sticks his arm up in the air, you must run up to him and press the Action Button to restrain him, while the other partner goes gangsta style on him. Alternatively, you can also defeat him by constantly blasting his orange bulb. Whichever method you choose, after you defeat him, there's one more on-screen prompt to do in the cut scene that follows, and the game is over. Sit back after that and watch the final cut scenes.

Playing a New Game+ will allow you to keep your entire Inventory, which you will receive when the Informant opens his briefcase of weapons in Chapter 1-1. Clearing the game once also opens the door to a bunch of goodies. In the Bonus Features menu, you will find Costumes, and the like, which you can purchase for 0 pints. They really are just rewards for shooting all 30 BSAA Emblems. You will also be allowed to play through the Mercenaries Mode, which you should be familiar with if you've played Resident Evil 4. You can unlock characters for that mode, and also accumulate points for spending in the Bonus Features menu. Finally, you will also have the Infinite Ammo option, which I want to go into some detail about because there will likely be questions about it. _____ (, / /+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ ___/__ n f i n i t e A m m o /----------------------------------' +--(__ /---------------------------------+/ H o w - t o & M o r e [WKIF] | New Game+ | You've probably noticed the Infinite Ammo option if you ever '------------' decided to re-play a chapter. The only problem is, it doesn't seem to do anything, you're wondering. I'm not sure why Capcom made this process with so many steps, but here is the breakdown on how to get the Infinite Ammo working: 1. Upgrade the gun you want Infinite Ammo for completely. IE, Damage, Capacity, Piercing, etc. Basically, this first step means that it will not be possible to upgrade the gun further in any way. 2. Go into the Bonus Features and you will find a list of things you can purchase with points. Note: these are points you accumulate by achieving ranks (S-Rank, B-Rank, etc), and shooting BSAA Emblems in the missions. Scroll down the list until you find the option buy Infinite Ammo for your weapon. The price will be heftier as the gun gets better. If you need more points, you can replay some easy chapters to accumulate them. 3. Go into the "Special Settings" menu now, and goto Infinite Ammo. Turn this on. 4. Start your game/the chapter of your choice, and change the Infinite Ammo Option to Yes. 5. If you've done it correctly, the weapon will have the infinite symbol in place of the amount of ammo remaining, and you do not have to reload. Having the infinite ammo is very helpful when you're going after Emblems or treasures because you can dispose of the enemies quickly and focus on the task at hand. Table of Infinite Ammo Prices ,--------------------------------------. | Weapon Name | Price | |---------------------------------------| | M92F [Handguns] | 6,000 pts | | H&K P8 | 10,000 pts | | SIG P226 | 10,000 pts | | M93R | 20,000 pts | | | | | Ithacha M37 [Shotguns]| 8,000 pts | | M3 | 12,000 pts | | Jail Breaker | 12,000 pts | | Hydra | 20,000 pts | | | | | Vz.61 [Machine Guns] | 6,000 pts | | AK-47 | 15,000 pts | | H&K MP5 | 10,000 pts | | SIG 556 | 15,000 pts | | | | | S75 [Sniper Rifles] | 15,000 pts | | Dragunov SVD | 15,000 pts | | H&K PSG-1 | 15,000 pts | | | | | S&W M29 [Magnums] | 15,000 pts | | L.

The Rocket Launcher requires a separate process completely to unlock unlimited ammo. You have to beat the game under 5 hours. 3. Gatling Gun and Longbow have infinite ammo the moment they are unlocked. Just be sure to turn on the option under Special Settings. 4. Having Infinite Ammo on would not stop you from earning trophies. IE if you need to complete the game on Professional, and you have Infinite Ammo on, you will still get the trophy.

It is about as standard as they come, with a mediocre firing rate and damage done. However, it does come fully equipped with a laser sight, so it will make aiming a lot easier. You should of course take advantage of the accuracy of this weapon, and look to mix in some melee attacks whenever possible. The ammo of choice is of course the Handgun Ammo (what else). +----+ | 2. | .375 Rifle +----+------------------------------------+ The .375 is a weapon of range and power. There isn't much of a firing rate to speak of here. It is your standard Sniper Rifle, so it comes with an adjustable scope. Its shells are very powerful, so whenever you're taking on a heavy duty opponent, don't be afraid to break it out, even in close range. It will take a little more practice to be able to manuever it effectively from close range, but it's not something that should overwhelm you. You should get used to using it in short range because you will find that most of the time, you won't have too many opportunities to pick off the Majini from afar. That's just the nature of the game-- the enemies appear when you get there. As you can probably guess, you'll need the Rifle Ammo for the bullets. +----+ | 3. | Ithaca M37 +----+------------------------------------+ The M37 is your shotgun. It packs some serious heat in the shots, so it is absolutely your boss/mini-boss weapon. It also comes with some splash capabilities, so be sure to take advantage of that whenever you can. Whenever you feel like an enemy isn't taking damage from you, or a little overwhelmed from the number of opponents, the M37 is usually a nice remedy. +----+ | 4. | Vz.61 +----+------------------------------------+ Here is your submachine gun. Its power is nothing to get totally excited about, and neither is its effectiveness in my view. Resident Evil 5 seems to place some emphasis on power and accuracy (so you can use your melee attacks), and the Vz.61 doesn't seem to help you very much in that department. It is all right when you are facing a bunch of the Majini, and need to start spraying some shots at them. Other than that though, I would say it's a pretty average weapon. That could change when I get deeper into the game though. +--------+ ______ | ____/ | (, / ) | || | /---( | ||_ | ) / ____) S A A E m b l e m s | |/\\ |+--(_/-(------------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [BE00]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | All right, here are the 30 BSAA Emblem locations in the game.

The instructions themselves are very detailed already so you should have no problem finding most of them. +---C h a p t e r 1 - 2---+ +----+ | 1. | BSAA Emblem #01 (1/3) +----+------------------------------------+ Go down the alley with the Majini who jumps out of the boxes. Turn right when you can and turn into the building that is locked from the inside through the door under the stairs. Go up the stairs and head out into the balcony immediately to the left. Go to the far end of the balcony and look across. Just beyond the sacks of flour, on the wall and immediately to the left of the pillar separating the two sides is the Emblem +----+ | 2. | BSAA Emblem #02 (2/3) +----+------------------------------------+ Right after defeating the blond woman, you have to make your way into the broken down building to continue the chapter. After navigating the basement level, you will come to some stairs leading upwards. Go up the stairs and turn right to find a dead BSAA soldier who is just about to collapse. Continue past him to find a ladder. As soon as you climb up the ladder look upwards towards the water tank. You will see it in the middle, between the wood crossings +----+ | 3. | BSAA Emblem #03 (3/3) +----+------------------------------------+ After the boss battle, you will have to go through the final hallway leading to the elevator and the conclusion of the chapter. If you turn to the right in the hallway, you can look through the fence and see the Emblem next to the left of the fan. It will be very easy to spot. +---C h a p t e r 2 - 1---+ +----+ | 4. | BSAA Emblem #04 (1/5) +----+------------------------------------+ You probably grabbed this one already. It's in the very first room of the chapter. You will see to the right of the door to leave, and to the left of the window with bars. +----+ | 5. | BSAA Emblem #05 (2/5) +----+------------------------------------+ After crossing the bridge with the truck, turn down the stairs to the left. As you go down the stairs though, look towards the structure with the white cloth and you will find the Emblem on the bottom right corner of the structure. +----+ | 6. | BSAA Emblem #06 (3/5) +----+------------------------------------+ After going through the tunnel with the dogs and you make your way to the market area with the Port Key (and the treasure chest in the centre of the stands), if you immediately turn right upon entering the market place, you will see a small stand. Go to the side with the window and the flames decoration at the bottom. Go right up to the window and aim up, you should see a slither of the Emblem here so blast it. +----+ | 7. | BSAA Emblem #07 (4/5) +----+------------------------------------+ Recall that after opening the gate with the Port Key, you can explore some boats before climbing up a small ladder to the next area. Immediately after climbing up the ladder, climb up another ladder to the right to get on top of a small house. Turn left to where the tire is and look across to the building across. In the second opening from the right, you will find the Emblem. +----+ | 8. | BSAA Emblem #086 (5/5) +----+------------------------------------+ Near the end of the chapter you will have to perform an Assisted Jump with Sheva and throw her to the roof of the building across the street. Before doing so, turn around and look to the roof, to the right. You will see that the Emblem is right in front of a little chimney with metal rods sticking out of it. +---C h a p t e r 2 - 2---+ +----+ | 9. | BSAA Emblem #09 (1/3) +----+------------------------------------+ Right in the beginning of the chapter, after dealing with the dogs and the traps for the first time, you will have to climb up a ladder to get on the top of the train cars. Jump to the train car immediately to the right. Now turn to the left and aim your Sniper Rifle to the electrical pole and look to the top, on the right to find this one. +-----+ | 10. | BSAA Emblem #10 (2/3) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Near the end of the pitch black tunnel, you'll find come to an area with waterfalls on both sides. Near the middle of the bridge, turn to the right and look towards the water here to spot the Emblem. +-----+ | 11. | BSAA Emblem #11 (3/3) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Near the end of the chapter, after climbing up the long ladder, if you turn to the left there's a Majini and a rock. Instead of going over to the rock, stay near the top of the ladder, and look towards the several buildings in the distance. You should see a set of buildings that look kind of like a staircase. Well, on the "step" on the very bottom, you will find the Emblem there, against the wall of the second "step".

Go to the hut and look up inside, you will find the Emblem in the very middle. +-----+ | 14. | BSAA Emblem #14 (3/4) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Drive your boat to the very middle of the map to find the chicken farm. Get off your boat and don't move too much. The BSAA Emblem is under the hut on this island. Get out your Sniper Rifle and look under the hut from the wooden catwalk. You'll have to look a little bit to the right to get a good shot. You can get a good glimpse of the emblem if you drive your boat to the back of the hut. +-----+ | 15. | BSAA Emblem #15 (4/4) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Secure all of the ancient artefacts from the islands in the beginning so you can open the door at the marker. Jump into the swamp and turn to the right. You will see the Emblem in a little window if you look towards the wall of the wooden walk you just jumped down from. +---C h a p t e r 3 - 2---+ +-----+ | 16. | BSAA Emblem #16 (1/2) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Make your way to the area with the Tricell tents. Head into the first tent to the right and leave through the back. Once outside, turn left and look to the space between the two tents. You will see the Emblem tucked away here. +-----+ | 17. | BSAA Emblem #17 (2/2) +-----+-----------------------------------+ When Captain Joseph secures the boat on the other side of the dock and the timer starts, make a Quick Turn and turn into the little building to the right. You will find the emblem in the corner of the wall to the right. +---C h a p t e r 3 - 3---+ +-----+ | 18. | BSAA Emblem #18 (1/1) +-----+-----------------------------------+ When the boat stops for the first time, jump on to the catwalk to the left. Fight your way up the catwalk and face the opening that your boat came from. Notice the elevated platform above. Look just under that platform and you will see just a sliver of the Emblem peeking out.

Dispose of them and move past the ladder, sticking to the right. Turn right again and look for the waterfall in the distance. Go up to the wooden railing and look for the Emblem in the corner to the right of the waterfall. +-----+ | 20. | BSAA Emblem #20 (2/3) +-----+-----------------------------------+ After navigating the opening cave involving the spiders (see Emblem #18), it will take you to a door. Head through the door and you will be standing on a balcony in an ancient ruins area. Look towards the left at the object reflecting the sunlight. Look below it with your Sniper Rifle to see the Emblem in the middle. +-----+ | 21. | BSAA Emblem #21 (3/3) +-----+-----------------------------------+ After pulling on the chains to reveal the large staircase, head on through. As soon as you descend this first set of stairs, turn to the left and look above with your Sniper Rifle. You will find the Emblem on the wall.

After descending on your elevator, run across the room behind the statue. Dispose of the Bui Kichwa (spiders) and turn around facing the opening you came from. Look above the opening and you should see it. +---C h a p t e r 5 - 1---+ +-----+ | 23. | BSAA Emblem #23 (1/1) +-----+-----------------------------------+ This one is found in the very first room of the chapter. Identify the catwalk that will allow you to cross to the next area. Instead of taking it though, circle around ground below until you are blocked by some pipes. Look under the catwalk and you will find this one hovering above the stream. +---C h a p t e r 5 - 2---+ +-----+ | 24. | BSAA Emblem #24 (1/1) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Make your way to the room that has the briefcase containing the SIG-556. To the left of the SIG-556 are a couple of dumpsters. One of them has its lid open, peek inside here to find the emblem. +---C h a p t e r 5 - 3---+ +-----+ | 25. | BSAA Emblem #25 (1/3) +-----+-----------------------------------+ At the very first room of the chapter, head through the newly opened door into the next room. The emblem is here. You will see a couple of huge fans on the wall in here. Go right up against the barricades blocking the fans and look at the fan on the right. Keep looking at a few spots left of that fan on the right and you should see the Emblem peek through as the fan is doing its rotations. +-----+ | 26. | BSAA Emblem #26 (2/3) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Make your way to the room with the rotating elevator, but doing activate it just yet. Instead, go up to the control console, look above, and slowly look left (so you are slowly looking behind you). The first balcony you see is where the Emblem is. The Emblem is attached to the bottom of the balcony so look there. +-----+ | 27. | BSAA Emblem #27 (3/3) +-----+-----------------------------------+ This is probably the easiest of the three in this chapter. Make your way to the final room before the boss battle, the one with the bridge and the massive Licker Beta (frog) attacks. As soon as you enter the room, turn to the elevator on the left, and circle around the squared-hole until you are stopped by a wooden palette. Aim towards the hole under the elevator and it will be right there. +---C h a p t e r 6 - 1---+ +-----+ | 28. | BSAA Emblem #28 (1/3) +-----+-----------------------------------+ This one is completely hidden. Near the start of the chapter, make your way to the platform where you can climb up the long ladder, but don't climb up. Instead, face the side opposite of the flag and take note of the twin exhaust pipes directly ahead. Look between them with your Sniper Rifle to see a very long pillar in the distance. Aim to the very top of that pillar and you should see the BSAA Emblem glinting. Blast it to lock up this elusive emblem.

Turn to the left of the Sheva's cage and you will find some Majini pour out of the storage crate above. Have a Hand Grenade handy and throw it into the storage crate to procure this elusive emblem. +-----+ | 30. | BSAA Emblem #30 (3/3) +-----+-----------------------------------+ As soon as the scene with Excella is over, turn to the right and look above into those cabinets on the wall. You will find the Emblem here. Blast it for the final gem of this glorified witch hunt. +--------+ ________) | ____/ | (, / | || | / | ||_ | ) / r e a s u r e L o c a t i o n s | |/\\ |+---/---------------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | (_/ -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [TL00]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| |This is the first section I've worked on since my stupid school work +--------+hiatus. Everything might seem a little rushed, because it's like 1 AM in the morning here (just a few hours away from the NA release!) I hope you understand enough of them to find these instructions useful. A better version is coming soon, I promise! (Update: I have since updated all the instructions). Note that this section will help you obtain the silver trophy "They Belong in a Museum". Remember that you do NOT have to keep the treasures after finding them. You can sell them and still obtain the trophy! +----+ | 1. | Gold Ring +----+------------------------------------+ I've run into this one on multiple occasions, but this location is to take out the Executioner. Taking him out within the 5 minute window or so might be difficult at first, but try to throw everything you have at him--Grenades, Sniper Rifle, etc. The more powerful the weapon the better. +----+ | 2. | Ivory Relief +----+------------------------------------+ Take care of the blond woman (turns out to be a Cephalo) who initially asks for help in Chapter 1-2 and she will drop this. +----+ | 3. | Dead Bride's Necklace +----+------------------------------------+ After restoring the power of the conveyor belt in Chapter 5-2, if you run on the black strip between the conveyor belts farthest from the lever (IE, not the conveyor belt you initially drop down on), you should be able to pick this one up. Also in Chapter 5-2, recall that there are some Majini with Rocket Launchers blocking the hallway leading to the Tricell elevator to the end of the chapter. The Majini in this room will drop this one. +----+ | 4. | Royal Necklace +----+------------------------------------+ About halfway through Chapter 5-3, you will encounter some Majini with Rocket Launchers guarding the control room. You will find the Royal Necklace on the desk and in a briefcase, in addition to a Green Herb. +----+ | 5. | Jewel Bangle +----+------------------------------------+ This one is dropped by chance by a Big Man Majini. If you don't know which one that is, it's the really fat one who attacks with punches. +----+ | 6. | Venom Fang +----+------------------------------------+ This one is dropped by any Chainsaw Majini after the first one you encounter. I picked mine up in Chapter 3-2. +----+ | 7. | Antique Clock +----+------------------------------------+ In Chapter 2-1, recall that there's an alley where a Majini jumps out from the boxes. Also recall that there's a building that's locked from the inside. If you continue down this alley, and turn right, you will be able to enter the building through the door under the stairs. Once inside, go up the stairs, turn right past the television and to the balcony. Open the treasure chest to the left to the left to find it. +----+ | 8. | Chalice (Silver) +----+------------------------------------+ In Chapter 3-1, drive your boat to the very top-left tip of your map. You will find a little island with a hut. Climb the ladder and you will find this one in a treasure chest. +----+ | 9. | Chalice (Gold) +----+------------------------------------+ You'll find this one in Chapter 5-3, in the lockers in the room right before the boss battle. You will also find the Topaz (Brilliant) right above the exit to the boss battle. +-----+ | 10. | Idol (Silver) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Recall in Chapter 3-1 there are two assisted jumps for Sheva. The first jump is to the left, which holds the Idol (Silver) you are seeking, and the second is one of the slates needed to open the door. All of this takes place in the island at the very top of the map. +-----+ | 11. | Idol (Gold) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Recall the mirror puzzles in Chapter 4-2. If you direct the beam of light to the statue instead of turning the mirror to solve the puzzle, this will unlock a bunch of treasure chambers. You will find the Idol (Gold) in one of those. If you forgot how to work the puzzle, goto the walkthrough. +-----+ | 12. | Ceremonial Mask +-----+-----------------------------------+ At the end of Chapter 3-1, recall that there is a tunnel near the conclusion of the chapter, just before the trolley. You will find a treasure chest inside containing this one. +-----+ | 13. | Jewel Beetle +-----+-----------------------------------+ You'll find this one in Chapter 3-2. It's by the water pipe in the area with the two Tricell tents. +-----+ | 14. | Beetle (Brown) +-----+-----------------------------------+ You'll find this one on the abandoned ship in Chapter 3-1. You can reach the ship by driving to the top left of the map. It's right before the secret hideout that hides the Chalice (Silver) and the BSAA Emblem. +-----+ | 15. | Beetle (Gold) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Recall the mirror puzzles in Chapter 4-2. If you direct the beam of light to the statue instead of turning the mirror to solve the puzzle, this will unlock a bunch of treasure chambers. You will find the Beetle (Gold) in one of those. +-----+ | 16. | Topaz (Pear) +-----+-----------------------------------+ There are a bunch of these lying around. First one to note is in Chapter 2-1. You find this one in one of the corners by the boat. +-----+ | 17. | Ruby (Pear) +-----+-----------------------------------+ There are a lot of these ones as well. You'll find one right at the very beginning of Chapter 3-1, if you slash the skull with your knife. +-----+ | 18. | Sapphire (Pear) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Just in case you need help finding this one, you'll find one in Chapter 4-1, near the boss fight. Recall that there are some chains near the end of the chapter. If you pull on them, they will trigger a set of stairs to appear. You'll find the Sapphire (pear) in the upper level. +-----+ | 19. | Emerald (Pear) +-----+-----------------------------------+ These are all over the place. After defeating the Chainsaw Majini in Chapter 2- 1, and you grab the Guard's Key from it, you'll find a treasure chest at the corner of the alley. The treasure is in there. +-----+ | 20. | Diamond (Pear) +-----+-----------------------------------+ In Chapter 2-2, recall that there's a stationary machine gun for your use. If you make your way to the long ladder behind it, you should be able to see a shiny object on top. Blast it, and that's the Diamond (Pear). Go directly to Diamond (Square). +-----+ | 21. | Topaz (Square) +-----+-----------------------------------+ You'll find one at the beginning of Chapter 4-1, among other places. Shortly after entering the village at the beginning, you'll have to eventually drop down a ledge, before dropping down again. You should be able to identify a shiny object here, so blast it for the Topaz. +-----+ | 22. | Ruby (Square) +-----+-----------------------------------+ You'll find it in the treasure chest after defeating the Chainsaw Majini for the first time in Chapter 2-1. +-----+ | 23. | Sapphire (Square) +-----+-----------------------------------+ You'll find one right at the beginning of Chapter 4-2. Look for in a torch in one of the various alcoves in the beginning of the chapter. +-----+ | 24. | Emerald (Square) +-----+-----------------------------------+ You'll find one of these as you complete the statue puzzle in Chapter 4-1. Lots of these lying around. +-----+ | 25. | Diamond (Square) +-----+-----------------------------------+ In Chapter 2-2, recall that there is a series of two Assisted Jumps. Circle up the hill and drop down on to the ledge that you helped Sheva jumped on. Look on the mountain wall to the top-left. You will see a shiny object here so blast it and the treasure will conveniently drop on to the ledge you are standing on. +-----+ | 26. | Topaz (Oval) +-----+-----------------------------------+ In Chapter 6-1, recall that Sheva will caught by a cage near the start, by some Majini operating a crane. Your goal is to prevent this from actually happening, and here's how: When you go for the Topaz, begin the chapter and work your way up the stairs to the right and climb up the initial ladder. Climb up the long ladder on this platform so you can get all the way to the top. Go to the railing where the wooden crates are, and look outwards with your Sniper Rifle. There's a Majini on the right, near the bottom. Pick him off and keep looking above him until you see another Majini at the very top. Blast him, and he's the one who drops the Topaz. Also look for the Crane Operator so you don't have to waste time to lift it yourself. This step is optional though. After that, make your way to the area that requires the Keycard, and do the sequence where you have to push the junk. After pushing it, drop down to the left and climb up the ladder directly in front. The Topaz (Oval) should be around where that lone Green Herb is. +-----+ | 27. | Ruby (Oval) +-----+-----------------------------------+ You'll find it right at the end of Chapter 4-1, before the boss battle. Go to the final (red) statue, and you'll find the treasure after pulling on the chains. +-----+ | 28. | Sapphire (Oval) +-----+-----------------------------------+ During the first encounter with Wesker and ____ in Chapter 5-3, there's the sequence where Wesker kicks you through the door. Turn around and sprint through the corridor into the room containing the coffins. You'll find it in a pot on a shelf to the right, shortly after entering the first room with the coffins. +-----+ | 29. | Emerald (Oval) +-----+-----------------------------------+ During the first encounter with Wesker and ____ in Chapter 5-3, there's the sequence where Wesker kicks you through the door. Turn around and sprint through the corridor into the room containing the coffins. Search through the coffins that require an assist to open before you find it. +-----+ | 30. | Diamond (Oval) +-----+-----------------------------------+ This one is in the Mines of Chapter 2-2. As you make your way through the mines, and begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel, keep looking for a path to the left that will lead you to the treasure chest containing this one. +-----+ | 31. | Topaz (Trilliant) +-----+-----------------------------------+ You'll find it in Chapter 4-1, right at the beginning. Recall that there's a ladder right at the start of the chapter. Instead of climbing up, explore the area on the ground first. You should be able to see a single pot after going left for a while. Turn to the left of _that_ to find a secret ledge leading to the treasure chest. +-----+ | 32. | Ruby (Trilliant) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Recall that in Chapter 4-1 there are a series of sarcophaguses (or coffins). After you find the last one, it'll drop you down to a tomb where you are ambushed by enemies. There's treasure chest down here that holds this one. Don't leave until you find it. +-----+ | 33. | Sapphire (Trilliant) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Same as above, except it's in another treasure chest in one of the paths down in Chapter 4-1. +-----+ | 34. | Emerald (Trilliant) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Same as above, except it's in another treasure chest in one of the paths down in Chapter 4-1. +-----+ | 35. | Diamond (Trilliant) +-----+-----------------------------------+ After inserting the final Emblem in Chapter 4-2, shoot this one above the doorway before you leave. +-----+ | 36. | Topaz (Brilliant) +-----+-----------------------------------+ You'll find it in Chapter 5-3, right after lowering the bridge by pulling the lever inside the locked room, look for it above the doorway before entering the door. +-----+ | 37. | Ruby (Brilliant) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Recall that there's a room with a rotating elevator in Chapter 5-3. Leave this room on the catwalk and goto the door. Open it, and keep looking towards the ceiling as you move through this area. You will see the treasure glinting near the final light of the exit of the tunnel, in the sand area. +-----+ | 38. | Sapphire (Brilliant) +-----+-----------------------------------+ During the first encounter with Wesker and ____ in Chapter 5-3, there's the sequence where Wesker kicks you through the door. Turn around and sprint through the corridor into the room containing the coffins. Search through the coffins and you'll soon find one that's similar to what you opened in Chapter 4. You'll need Sheva to help you out. +-----+ | 39. | Emerald (Brilliant) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Right at the beginning of the boss fight with _____ (without Wesker), sprint up the staircase to the right. Keep following the path right until you see a bunch of pots. You'll find it in there. +-----+ | 40. | Diamond (Brilliant) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Recall in Chapter 2-2 that there's a machine gun the Majini attack you with. After you dispose of the guy using the machine gun, make your way outside and towards the gun. Look for a small ladder to the left, shortly before the platform where the machine gun is, and you'll find the treasure chest to the left of that. +-----+ | 41. | Topaz (Marquise) +-----+-----------------------------------+ In Chapter 1-1, recall that there's a point where you have to jump through a window, before getting attacked by a swarm of Majini. Instead of running like usual, stay put and open fire on them. After you have defeated all of them, you will get the Topaz. It really helps if you have a weapon with Infinite Ammo here. If you want to learn how, read the Infinite Ammo section. +-----+ | 42. | Ruby (Marquise) +-----+-----------------------------------+ In Chapter 2-1, recall that you have to shoot the Port Key from a dead body. Shortly before that, there is a market stand with a treasure chest in it. The only way to grab it is to throw a grenade at the stand and destroy it. +-----+ | 43. | Sapphire (Marquise) +-----+-----------------------------------+ You'll find this one in the beginning of Chapter 5-3. Head through the opening and go up the stairs. Take the path to the left to the room with the x-rays. You'll find this one in the safe to the left when you come in. +-----+ | 44. | Emerald (Marquise) +-----+-----------------------------------+ This one is in the beginning of Chapter 3-3. Make your way to the machine guns, and find the ladder above the gate that leads to the next area. There's a little house between the two machine guns and you'll find the treasure in there. +-----+ | 45. | Diamond (Marquise) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Recall that in Chapter 6-3, Wesker will eventually take you to the volcano. Also recall that there's a bridge that collapses in the beginning. Begin the search for this one right BEFORE stepping on to the bridge and collapsing it: Turn around and go towards the bridge, but don't walk on it. Shoot the rock that appears to be the same type of rock as the bridge, and it sticks out to the right. Hit it a few times, and if you've done it correctly, the rock should collapse. Now walk on to the bridge, and let it collapse. Once you are on the bottom, turn to the left and jump along the rocks here. You should see it the Diamond now. Retrieve it and jump back to where you were when you dropped. +-----+ | 46. | Power Stone +-----+-----------------------------------+ You'll have to kill a Reaper to pick this one up. The Reaper is that large insect that's capable of creating a duplicate of itself. They make their first appearance in Chapter 5-2, so look there. +-----+ | 47. | Lion Heart +-----+-----------------------------------+ These are dropped by Licker Betas. They are blind, and you will find them in the beginning of Chapter 5-1. +-----+ | 48. | Blue Enigma +-----+-----------------------------------+ These are dropped by the Giant Majini. You'll find them at the end of Chapter 3-1. +-----+ | 49. | Soul Gem +-----+-----------------------------------+ Kill the boss in Chapter 4-1 without going up stairs. Instead, you will need to do so by wearing it down with your guns and grenades. +-----+ | 50. | Heart of Africa +-----+-----------------------------------+ You will find this one in the fight against Wesker and ____. I highly recommend purchasing a Rocket Launcher for this. If you can't afford it, you can find one on the abandoned ship in Chapter 3-1 (the ship can be found by driving to the top-left of the map). After the battle begins, Investigate that door to the right, and Wesker will kick you through. Go into hiding, and when Wesker isn't looking, shoot him with the rocket. He will catch it, so blast the rocket to create a huge explosion. Go up to him with your Shotgun, or L.Hawk, and start blasting away. If you've done it correctly, the fight will end immediately. It's now time to battle with ____, go down the stairs and you will find the Heart of Africa between the two set of stairs. This should also earn you the Bad Blood trophy. +--------+ ________) | ____/ | (, / | || | / | ||_ | ) / r o p h i e s | |/\\ |+---/---------------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | (_/ -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [TR00]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| |Here is the list of Trophies, just for your reference.

The four types of eggs are: 1)White, 2)Brown, 3)Rotten, and 4)Gold. Rotten eggs are predominately dropped by the Majini, you will find a bunch of them in Chapter 4-1 and 4-2. So begin by doing a play through of the chapter until you pick one up. The next place to be is the Chicken Farm in Chapter 3-1. The Chicken farm is in the middle of the map when you are in the boat, so drive there. If you haven't already, you can secure the White Egg to the right of the hut, outside. Now wait for about a minute and look for one of the chickens to lay a Gold egg. After a minute has passed and there are no eggs, get back on your boat and get right back to the chicken farm. Keep waiting for about a minute for the eggs and coming back when there's nothing. You can also find the Brown egg here. +-----+ | 23. | All Dressed Up (Silver) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Purchase all available alternative costumes in Bonus Features. - To get this one you have to first shoot all 30 Emblems so all the Bonus Features are available to you. All you have to do then is to into Bonus Features and "Purchase" all of the costumes for 0 pts each. Note that you will not receive the trophy until you do that last step. +-----+ | 24. | Stockpile (Silver) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Obtain all available weapons. - Self explanatory. There are some "secret" weapons that can only be obtained if you upgrade these weapons to the max: * M92F Pistol - Unlocks the [Beretta 83R] * S&W M29 Magnum - Unlocks the [S&W 500 Magnum] * Ithaca M93 Shotgun - Unlocks the [Hydra Triple Barrel Shotgun] * VZ61 Machine Gun - Unlocks the [Gatling Gun] (for Chris only) * S75 Rifle - Unlocks the [Longbow] (for Sheva only) Once you've unlocked each weapon you have to buy them from the Inventory. +-----+ | 25. | Take It to the Max (Silver) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Completely upgrade all weapons. - Pretty self-explanatory again. Upgrading weapons require Gold, so do a few treasure hunt runs (using the Treasure section of the FAQ) to assist you. +-----+ | 26. | They Belong in a Museum (Silver) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Obtain all treasures in the game. +-----+ | 27. | Badge of Honor (Silver) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Find all the BSAA emblems. +-----+ | 28. | They're ACTION Figures!

You must first have shot all 30 Emblems so every figurine is available to you. Also, you need to clear the game on Veteran. Buying the figures will require points (by achieving ranks in the missions or Mercenaries). +-----+ | 29. | A Friend in Need (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Save partner 10 times when HELP is displayed. - You will probably get this one as you play through the game. There really isn't any trick to it. +-----+ | 30. | Lifeguard (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Save partner 10 times when DYING is displayed. - Same as above. +-----+ | 31. | Exploding Heads (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Pull off 20 headshots. - I'm not too sure on this but I think they have to be critical headshots. Either way you should probably have this by the time you beat the game. +-----+ | 32. | A Cut Above (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat 5 enemies with the Knife. - The best way to achieve this one is in Chapter 1-1. When you make it into the house in Public Assembly, and the Majini start pouring in, if you go up to the window you can keep slashing them as they try to climb in. You won't get hurt from the ones trying to come into the window, but watch out for the other guys who come in from the door. +-----+ | 33. | Cattle Prod (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat 30 enemies with the Stun rod. - The Stun Rod can be bought from the Inventory Menu after completing Chapter 2-3. +-----+ | 34. | Crowd Control (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat 30 enemies with the Gatling gun. - As mentioned above, the Gatling Gun is unlocked after you upgrade the Vz.61 to the max. You must then purchase it for 50,000 points. +-----+ | 35. | Bull's-eye (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat 30 enemies with the Longbow. - As mentioned above, the Longbow is unlocked after upgrading the S75 Rifle to the max. +-----+ | 36. | Get Physical (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat 20 enemies with physical attacks. - This is another trophy you will probably end up with during the course of your playthrough. Physical attacks mean melee attacks, of course. +-----+ | 37. | The Works (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Chain the maximum number of combos together in one go. Here's a very good strategy by ResidentGear31 of the GameFAQs Message Boards: 1. To start, you need a few Flash grenades, I took 5 in case, and a second controller. That's it! 2. Start a game on chapter 2-1 on Amateur. Press start on the second controller. 3. Go outside the starting room and clear the area with Chris until you get to the part where you have to drop down off a container into the large area with a few dogs and the fat man Majini. Stop with Chris and don't drop off the ledge yet. 4. Pick up the second controller and run Sheva to where Chris is standing on the container. Make Sheva drop off the ledge and then back her into the corner right behind you and have her face towards the opening. Place the controller right near you within reach. 5. Pick up the first controller and have Chris enter the area and start killing the dogs and everything else EXCEPT the fat man majini. 6. When the fatman is alone lure him into the narrow alley where Sheva is standing while backing Chris near Sheva. 7. As the fat man nears Chris and attempts an attack run behind him, he's very slow on Amateur, and throw a flash grenade. Feel free to throw other flash grenades too to set yourself up properly. You want to get it where the fat man is between Chris and Sheva with them both facing him. 8. As the fat man is stunned from the flash run up to him with Chris and press square to start the combo. Quickly pick up, or leave it on the couch next to you, the second controller for Sheva and press square for the second hit. Then press square on the first controller with Chris to finish the combo and get your trophy! - If you screwed up or messed up somehow just pause and restart. The check point is right before you drop down off the container so it's very fast to reload and try again. You can do this on any difficulty but Amateur is obviously the easiest. +-----+ | 38. | Lead Aspirin (Silver) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat a Majini with a headshot while it's jumping. - This can be a little difficult. You need to get a critical hit head shot (blast somebody's head off) while they are jumping either from above or towards you. It's probably easier to get this while they are jumping towards you. Equip your fully uploaded shotgun and go to Chapter 1-1. Recall when you are waiting for Kirk to blow open the gate that there's this little gap up the stairs and along the fence. This is also a Majini spawning point. If the Shotgun isn't working out, try a fully upgraded Critical M92F. +-----+ | 39. | Fireworks (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Shoot an enemy Molotov cocktail, dynamite stick, or hand grenade. - You will find many Majini who have explosives, predominately in the earlier chapters. Your goal is to shoot them when they are thrown at you, or when they are still holding on to them. Won't be too difficult to do. +-----+ | 40. | Be the Knife (Silver) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Deflect a bow gun arrow with your knife. +-----+ | 41. | Meat Shower (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat 3 Majini with one grenade or proximity bomb. +-----+ | 42. | Go into the Light (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat 2 enemies with one flash grenade. +-----+ | 43. | Ride the Lightning (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat a Majini using the electric current from a transformer. - The transformer are those electric boxes found on the floor. You will find one on the foot of the long stairs during the battle with the Chainsaw Majini. +-----+ | 44. | Stop, Drop, & Roll (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat 3 Majini at once by setting oil canisters on fire. - Oil canisters refer to the silver tanks in Chapter 3-3, so the best place to look is there. +-----+ | 45. | Baptism by Fire (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat 3 Majini at once with a drum or gas tank explosion. +-----+ | 46. | Masters of Removing (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Work together to save someone special. - You will get this one after completing Chapter 5-3. +-----+ | 47. | Secret Trophy - Bad Blood (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ During the first fight with Wesker, get kicked through the door. Then, damage him enough to end the fight immediately. The best way to do this is to use a Rocket Launcher, and blow it up, then blast him until it is over. +-----+ | 48. | Drive By (Silver) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Stop an armored truck by taking out the driver. - You will get this one on the long bridge in Chapter 2-2. +-----+ | 49. | Egg on Your Face (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat a Majini with a rotten egg. - Shoot the Majini a few times with a weapon, and finish it off by throwing the Rotten Egg. +-----+ | 50. | Heart Stopper (Bronze) +-----+-----------------------------------+ Defeat Licker Beta (the frog) by stabbing it in the heart. You first need to knock it on to its back by blasting it with a Shotgun. Then, stand over it and keep pressing the Action Button close. You will soon get the prompt to stab, which will earn you the trophy. +-----+ | 51. | Who Do You Trust? +-----+-----------------------------------+ Build up a high level of trust with your partner. - You can do this by "thanking" Sheva by hitting the Partner Action button. You can only thank her when she: 1. Gives Chris Ammo. 2. Heals Chris. 3. When Sheva gets a critical hit headshot. If you are having trouble, try starting a mission with Sheva having an empty inventory. Find a secluded spot and give her all of your items/weapons. Then, request for them back and keep thanking her. +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+ +--------+ __ __) | ____/ | (, /| /| | || | / | / | | ||_ | ) / |/ |_ e r c e n a r i e s I n - d e p t h | |/\\ |+-(_/---'-----------------------------------------------------------+ | )) | -+=-+=-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+-=+- [MR00]| | // |+-------------------------------------------------------------------+ | \| | Welcome to the Mercenaries section, everyone! Merceneries is +--------+ absolutely my favourite aspect of Resident Evil, and I play it whenever I can. Unfortunately, we are just about to head into finals season, so again, we're probably going to experience some delays in the progress department. However, I spent the last few days coming up with some maps and laying the ground work for you to succeed. I know I'm going to enjoy writing this section, so happy reading! Note that when this section is complete, it's going to follow the format of Public Assembly, detailing each time bonus, combo time, and chicken. But for now they will just be the maps as I work through them. +----+ | 1. | Important Ranks +----+------------------------------------+ Here are the two important ranks for Mercenaries. Everything below these two are kind of pointless: A Rank: 40,000 pts (Unlocks new character) B Rank: 20,000 pts (Unlocks new stage) +----+ | 2. | Basics (point form for now) +----+------------------------------------+ - The maps detail all the floors. So by default, you are not going to be able to identify each structure until you go up some stairs, or down some stairs. - ===, |||, etc represent stairs on the maps - # represents unwalkable terrain - The name of the game is to rout as many enemies as you can. Standard enemies will earn you 300-400 points per kill, while B.O.W's (Cephalo, Licker Beta, Big Man Majini) will earn you 800-1000 points and Bosses (Giant Majini, Chainsaw Majini) will earn you anywhere from 5000 to 10 000 pts. - It is ideal for you to "combo" the enemies as well. This means to kill each enemy within about a 10 second window to keep the combo going. - Combo Time markers (c on the maps), when activated, will add 1000 points to each combo kill. - If you discard a gun (ie your handgun) the enemies will no longer drop that ammo. This is ideal if you have a machine gun or a shotgun. - You can reload with the inventory by moving (Action Button) the ammo on to the weapon. You can do this at ANY time, whether you are climbing up ladders, getting attacked by enemies, etc - Don't pick up every grenade you see. Hand Grenades are good enough. Flash Grenades are also very useful, because they can bring down the B.O.W.'s with one explosion. - Be very mindful of Cephalo/Duvali. These guys can be really annoying because they are essentially "combo breakers". If you see a parasite exploding out of a Majini's head, either unload a Flash Grenade immediately, or take 1 shot at the B.O.W, then kill a basic Majini before going back to the B.O.W again to keep your combo going. - You get a 5 second bonus for killing an enemy with a melee attack - When you start, don't bother attacking any enemies at first. Instead, go around and find the Time Bonuses and punch them all. I started having much more success when I did this. - By now you should have a big group of enemies on you, lead them to a Combo Time and start racking them up. - Find the chicken and blast it for 2000 points right away. You can also use it to continue a combo. Note there are two chickens in The Mines. - Chris (BSAA) is awesome. Discard the M92F so you will have unlimited Shotgun Shells to pick up. Go up close to deal lots of damage (especially on the B.O.W). - Take time to play through a single map several times. Your scores will almost increase exponentially. - Before anyone asks, my favourite is Wesker (Midnight). --More to come! +---C h a r a c t e r O v e r v i e w----+ Item Setup __ __ __ | |a | | "a" represents the corresponding direction on your control pad, as |__|__|__| "b" the left direction, and so on. |b | |c | |__|__|__| | |d | | |__|__|__| +----+ | 1. | Chris (BSSA) +----+------------------------------------+ ,-----------------------. Chris is a very powerful starting character. As | a: Hand Grenade x5 | mentioned above, it is absolutely essential for you | b: M92F Handgun | to drop the M92F Handgun so you will have unlimited | c: Ithaca M37 Shotgun | Shotgun Shells to pick up. He also comes with a First | d: First Aid Spray | Aid Spray, so don't hesitate to use it if you get in '-----------------------' trouble. For Chris, the key is to get up close and personal with the Shotgun, to make sure the enemy takes the maximum damage possible. If you are close enough, most Majini will go down with a single shot. Not even the B.O.W's or bosses can take many shots from your shotgun. I firmly believe that Chris (BSAA) is among the most powerful characters in the game in the earlier stages, but as you venture deeper into the Mercenaries Mode you might want to consider switching up. +----+ | 2. | Albert Wesker (Midnight) +----+------------------------------------+ [Unlock with A Rank in The Mines] ,-----------------------. Wesker is a power, power, power kind of guy. You can | a: Hand Grenade x5 | play him in two different ways, each are equally | b: H&K P8 Handgun | effective. The first way is the standard--go around, | c: S&W M500 Magnum | procure all of the Time Bonuses, and picking off the | d: Proximity Mine x5 | Majini as they build up with your S&W M500 Magnum '-----------------------' (while discarding the Handgun). The second way is to take advantage of the extremely powerful "Cobra Strike" melee attack, which can be set up with a stunning blast to the face with the H&K P8, while accumulating a bunch of 5 second bonuses in the process. You should still hang on to the Magnum in this case, because you will need to it take down powerful enemies. Speaking of which, the Magnum is the most powerful weapon in the game, hands down. However, it's also very slow. When using the Magnum, make sure to take proper aim before firing. Its also got a very small clip (6) so it is ideal for you to use the Inventory Reload as much as possible. It is capable of bringing down even the Bosses with one or two shots, so always use it for heavy duty clean-up. The Proximity Mines are also very awesome. When you are getting chased by a big group of enemies, drop one on the ground to take them down instantly. You can also use it for bosses, but you have the Magnum for that, so I would say using it to rack up a bunch of kills is much more ideal. Finally, I want to take about Wesker's special attacks. He's the only one in the game who has them. They are as follows: 1. Dash: R3 Button (press down on the right analog stick) 2. Change Direction during Dash: Left Analog Stick + Run Button 3. Knee Attack: Action Button during Dash. (I'm not sure if the 360 has an equivalent of pressing down on the Right Analog Stick. Please let me know.) The Dash is very useful, but it will deplete some of Wesker's health when used. You can use it to escape when cornered. It is also very useful when say, you are running low on time, but you know there's a Time Bonus up ahead. Dash your way over there and knock it down. ...more to come! 1.

You will have to either climb a ladder or go up the stairs to reveal those parts of the map. The two buildings on the right (on top of each other) really don't have anything useful. You'll find some Grenades and stuff in there, but aside from that, going there really isn't required. The top portion should be pretty clear--this is where the that strip of sewage is, along with the small cabin to the right. +----+ | 2. | The Time Bonuses +----+------------------------------------+ Once you get the hang of the map, you should be able to find them (this applies to all maps). But just in case, here are some written instructiosn to compliment the map above: 1. This one is actually down where the sewers are, in the same strip as the Chicken. 2. This is the small cabin just above the sewers. There's a little ramp leading to it. 3. If you keep an eye out for this one, you can't miss it. 4. This is right outside the house to the side here. 5. This is INSIDE the house. 6. Go up the nearby stairs and turn left to find this one on the roof of the house of number 5. 7. This is on the bus. 8. Climb up the ladder to find this one immediately. You can't miss it. +----+ | 3. | Finding the Combo Time +----+------------------------------------+ a. This is right beside the ladder leading to the sewers below. b. This is inside the bus, so below the Time Bonus. c. It's tucked away in a corner to the right of the Time Bonus, in the shades on the same level. d. If you drop down from the hole on the roof of this house (or enter through the door/window) you will find it. Just note that it's inside. +----+ | 4. | The Chicken +----+------------------------------------+ The chicken is found in the sewers portion of the map, at the very top. To get down to the sewers, you can either take the ladder at the top left portion of the map, or you can jump down the platform/stairs labelled jump. 2.

The two arcs at the top represent the upper levels of the stage. The design in the centre that makes the circle look like a Pokeball is also an elevated terrain. The bottom parts is obviously the actual caves. To reach the top arc, where the Time Bonus and the Chicken are, you must climb up the ladder in the middle circle (which is the ground) on the top, then circle around to the ladder on the right of the map. Note that the Time Bonus on the very left is a whopping 90 seconds bonus, which can be reached by climbing up the nearby ladder. Be very careful of the Reaper on this stage. It can really be a nightmare if you are not careful. When it appears, back away from it, and look for the emblem in its chest to reveal itself, then blast it. Carelessness when a Reaper is present is a quick way to die. Note that I have labelled where the proximity mines are, because they can be very useful in not only dealing with the special enemies, but also a large wave of Majini. 3.

The three islands on the top left, bottom left, and middle right are where you grabbed your Emblems during the Story Mode. Each of them holds valuable Time Bonuses. When you go for the Time Bonus at the top left, you can jump across the two platforms to go quickly, instead of opting for the ladder at the top. The island at the very top is where you would leave Chapter 4-1 if you were playing story mode. It's a pretty good spot to stand when you have a group of enemies incoming because you can see them all. 5.
