Then, fire an upward shot with an angle so that it lands down on the red X to the right. The platform will then move to the left, and you’ll have to hang on the ledge and pull yourself up in order to avoid obstacles. After making the trek all the way to the left on the platform, you’ll find a permanent boost to your health bar, alongside the completion of the What You Need Achievement/Trophy.

Secret 2 ID of A. H. Fish – When you reach the bus at the top of the ramp out of the car park, carefully jump across the steel girders to the left.

Diary Page – As soon as you drop inside the stadium, enter the tunnel to your left. You’ll find the diary entry in a hotdog stand.

Secret 1 Military protocol report – Continue dashing through the locker rooms while avoiding Shadows. Once you’ve finally cleared the last set of lockers, you’ll find the report in the small room before the door all the way to the right.

Note: Make sure you collect the next items before rescuing Ben.

Secret 2 Pilot’s letter – When you emerge into the stadium, go up the stairs to the right and venture into the middle tunnel. You’ll find the secret on a hanging corpse next to a pair of Shadows banging on a fence to get in.

Stamina Increase – Now move the shelves so you can climb up to the higher path, then follow the corridor right before checking on the floor at the end.

HandheldNo Pain, No Gain Note: You need at least one bullet to obtain this item! Climb the highest portion of the right hand side of the stadium, and look across to the left.

Diary Page – Jump up into the window to the right of the ambulance and climb in. You’ll spot the diary page in the middle of the room.

Walk into the right hand area to experience a hallucination of Randall’s daughter. Once the vision ends, search the right side of the room to increase your health by an additional bar.

Secret 2 Absurd letter – Climb up the long bar ladder to the right of the large pit. Immediately after you reach the top, you’ll find the letter on the ground.

Secret 3 Doctor’s Recordings – Sprint to the right of the area after the ladder and immediately barricade yourself with a shelf once you’ve reached the room farthest to the right. To right of this room you’ll find more recordings from the crazy doctor.

Medicine Man

Secret 1 Science and Medicine clipping – You’ll find this clipping on the floor in the area where you begin. You can deal with the Shadow in the room first if you like, but you should have enough time to grab the secret before it attacks.

Secret 2ID of Karla L. Homolka – After obtaining the medical supplies from the lower right area of the hospital, climb across the pipe toward the room on the top left. Open the door and enter the room to find this ID on the corpse in the bed.

Secret 3 Doctor’s Watch – Before dropping down below in the area after the hospital beds, climb up to the left and kick through the small area at the top left of the screen. Jump across to another low area to find the watch of the crazy Doctor by his corpse.
