1.0) Introduction - A few notes from me, nothing legal here....
####################################################################

Just wanted to say this is my first guide for a Resident Evil game... much less
an action game. I mostly do RPGs, and most I don't even send into GameFAQs.
Well, I need help from you guys. This game is so great, the boss battles are
pretty much the best, and there are multiple ways to go about blasting a boss
with using as little ammo/items as possible. Some people might have different
weapons than me, and I need to know how to beat these guys with different
inventories. So please, send in your strategies to my E-mail, or AIM me. Both
of these can be found out the top of the page. Also, if you need help with a
boss, tell me and AIM or E-mail me. I dont mind answering questions, hell this
is a FAQ... and I need another section so please ask away.

Now for a more in-depth look at this game. As we all know Resident Evil is a
Survival/Horror genre that has become one of the greatest series of all time on
a console. But this game feels different? It's great, no doubt, but it just
feels... different. Why? Because this game isn't so much a Survival/Horror as
it is an Action/Horror. You don't have to worry about how much life you have,
what to keep in your inventory, ect. This is a great improvement, but some
people prefer that they stick with the old Survival style. That being said, I
hope that they make another "separate story" for Resident Evil that makes it
like the old ones. Just so that the other people can have fun too. I like the
game the way it is, but it isn't half as frightening as, say, Resident Evil
Remake.

Finally, this guide is being made without the help of a book. Please report any
boss attacks I miss, or potential threats to your character.

1/25/05 ***UPDATE***

PS- As the first update of my guide, I'd like to say thanks to everyone who
sent me in e-mail regarding my strategies. I usually write for lesser-known
games, so I don't get much e-mail. Since this is my first real popular game, I
got 30 e-mails in a period of 2 days! That's a lot for me. :*)

So please bear with me guys. I can only update the guide on weekends so your
strategies might not show up for a while. In fact, I've gotten so many
strategies, yours might not appear at all =\. I do first come first serve, so
if it's two of the same strategy, I will choose the first. I still appreciate
you all and your ideas! Thanks guys!

PSS- If I have missed giving you credit in the FAQ, please E-mail me. But be
sure to check and see if somebody else isn't already credited for the idea.
Thanks again!

3/23/05 ***UPDATE***

Wow! First I would like to say I am sorry to all the people who sent in e-mail.
I haven't been able to respond to many questions due to an excess amount of
work and school and family problems. However, this new update should implement
most of the questions asked (at least all new questions and non-repeated ones.)
Once again, credit is given to the first person's mail I read. I also read from
oldest-newest to make it fair. Another thing, I know, and everyone else knows,
that a lot of the bosses can be killed with the rocket launcher (for some
reason I've gotten a few e-mails suggesting this). Well, thanks for the support
but rocket launchers should be last ditch weapons.   :*)

Also, to avoid someone's real name being given out, tell me what you would like
to be called PLEASE.

Once again, sorry for not updating for... 2 months!? Wow. Sorry ^.^
As an Easter present, I give you a Kirby:

(>'o')>   <('o'<)    ^('o')^    \('o')/    (>'o')>    ^('o')^    <('o'<)

PS- New section: General information. Basically a fun fact section about RE4.
Theories,           and
general information much appreciated/welcome!
Also, sorry if a lot of people's strategies don't get in. A lot of them are
variations of similar strategies already presented (though not much different).
However, you are all very cool for sending your things in, and they give me
great ideas :*)

^
With over 140 emails regarding RE$, there is no way I can get to them all right
now. I just did about 50 and my fingers hurt. >.<

I will continue updating however, seeing as a lot of strategies are very good.

####################################################################
2.0) General information (Fun RE4 Reading)
####################################################################

This section is made for cool information regarding RE4. Send in
information and I'll put it in (if its quality is good). Basically
just for fun reading, it gives general info (hence the name) of RE4
which range from details of characters, story plot holes, theories,
rumors, and other nifty information to waste your time. Of well,
thanks Mixtzin for starting this section (I really enjoyed your
classifications).






VVVVVVVVVVVVVV
From Mixtzin:
VVVVVVVVVVVVVV

During the course of the game, I named Los Ganados Plagas as an exercise in
taxonomic classification, and because it was mildly entertaining.  Feel free to
use the terminology in your guide.

Type One Plagas - Larval Plagas: characterized by a tendonous "head", googly
eyes on stalks, and, attached to the "head", a long, whip-like tentacle with a
dagger-like edge.  Will whip you with tentacle close up or spray acid on you
from a distance.  Encountered from Chapter 2-1 on.  I rarely saw a female
Ganados sprout any type of Plagas head, but it does happen, and it's usually
Type One.

Type Two Plagas - Pupal Plagas: characterized by a long, segmented body with
multiple legs (two per segement), and a head with scythe-type jaws; looks like
an extremely pissed-off centipede.  Sprays acid (I think), and has an instant
death move where it bites off Leon's head (nasty). Encountered during mid-point
of chapter 3-1, and mostly with the cultist Ganados.  I think I might've seen
maybe one spring up once after I'd left the castle.

Type Three Plagas - Adult Plagas: characterized by having a body consisting of
an abdomen and thorax, multiple, wildly skittering legs (eight plus), and
two/three tentacles forming a "tail" attached to the abdomen; looks a lot like
the Facehuggers of Aliens fame.  Will spray acid when attached to host body;
when host body dies, will tear loose and pester you by just generally dogging
you, or by jumping up and latching on to your face in order to spray acid up
close and personal.  More annoying than deadly.  Encountered from Chapter 3-
2ish on, though somewhat rare in general, especially later on.

Type Ones are far more common (at least on Normal) than either of the other two
types, with Type Threes coming next in terms of commonality, and Type Twos
(oddly) coming in last.

Bye.

3.0) Bosses - They are big, they are grotesque, and they are the heart of this
guide.
####################################################################
I need you help guys. Send me an e-mail telling me how YOU beat these guys.
Please tell me what you would like to be called in the credits, what you need
to beat the boss, and how you beat it. Simple... now on to MY strategies. Happy
hunting!

*PS- As a last resort, use a Rocket Launcher! It can be bought from the
merchant for 30,000$*
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Boss 1: Del Lago
VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV

Before this fight you should have picked up the yellow herb in the cabin off to
the side. Combine this with the green herb (and perhaps a red one) to help you.
I suggest not using this just yet, unless you are low on life. Now, head into
the motor boat and drive in the lake. A cut scene will appear and you will now
be dragged around the lake by a serpent called "Del Lago". First thing's first,
your choice of weapons: Harpoons. You can't use anything but these so get used
to it. To use them, hold the "R" button to aim and a red targeting reticule
will pop up. Aim this at the boss and press "A" to throw it. Now, at the
beginning of the battle you will probably be dragged into the way of debris.
Even though you are being dragged, you can control the boat by moving your
analog stick left or right. Once you are clear of debris, pick up a spear and
fire away. You will probably only get one chance, so make it count. After he
drags you for a bit, he will go under water. This is a bad thing because he
will poop up aimed right at you with his mouth open. Maneuver the boat away
from him and pick up another harpoon to throw at him.

*Note: If you get hit you will be knocked out of the boat. At this point you
have to tap the "A" button repeatedly until you swim back to the boat. Do it
fast, he will be on your tail.*

At some point during this battle the Del Lago will disappear from your screen.
He won't even continue pulling you. What do you do? You pick up a spear and
look for red arrows on your screen. If they point to your left, the Del Lago is
to your left, and if they point to your right, he is to your right. Move to
either direction and look for splashing in the distance. He will be comming at
the fairly slowly, slow enough to get 3 or 4 harpoons off on him. Use this time
to pummel him with your harpoons.

*Note: Since he is coming at you, you will have to adjust your aim up or down
to make sure every shot hits him*

The Del Lago can only take around 9-13 Harpoon shots and isn't really that
hard. If you need life, use your herbs or a first aid spray. If you have it,
use your Green/Red/Yellow (G/R/Y) herb combination to heal yourself to the max
AND raise your life bar.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
El Gigante
VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV

This guy can be a pain if you aren't good at running. At the start of the
battle, IMMEDIATELY run through his legs and pick up the yellow herb across
from him. There are items scattered around the place, including in the
cottages. However, you wont be safe from him in these mini-houses, so don't
take too long picking the stuff up. At some point in the beginning (after you
pick up the yellow herb) he will pick up a boulder and roll it at you. The only
way to dodge this is to keep moving out of the way. It's not hard to dodge, but
you should be aware of it. If you get too close to the El Gigante he will
either kick you or grab you. If he kicks you, this will knock you down and
leave him open to stomp on you. If he grabs you, he will squeeze the life away
from you. Move the analog stick left and right AS FAST AS POSSIBLE to stab your
knife in his hand. So how do you BEAT this tough guy? Take it slow and steady.
If he is far away from you, pull out your pistol and aim for his head. If he is
close, pump a round of pellets from your shotgun into him. You should do this
once, so that you have enough time to get away from him. If you have any
flashbangs, use them here. They will blind him, allowing you to get 3-5 shotgun
blasts on him. Once you hurt him enough you will see a cut scene of his
parasite popping out of his back. Get near him and press the "A" button to
"climb" onto him. Tap repeatedly the "A" or "B" button to cut his parasite.
Which button to tap is completely random so you will have to be aware of what
button to press. After you do this another cut scene will appear showing the
wolf you saved at the beginning of the game coming to your rescue. The wolf
will distract the giant, giving you time to pound on it. After you hit it
enough times, he will fall again, and his parasite will appear once more. Climb
back on him and start slicing. After this he will get up again, however he will
come after you some more. Use the strategy you used in the beginning to make
him fall again (Flashbang/shotgun). The third time you cut his parasite he will
fall down, and finally die.

*Note: randomly throughout the fight he might pick up a tree to swing at you.
Not to worry, a prompt will appear telling you to press the "L" and "R" buttons
to roll out of the way*

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
El Gigante X2
VVVVVVVVVVVVVVV

These are both "tougher" than the original. You should notice a hole in the
middle of the room. You can guess what that's for =P. Run to the right where
you should see a ladder. Climb up it and wait for the two giants to come over
to you. There is a zip line right where you are standing. When they get near
you, go down the zipline. You should end up by a lever. When one of the giants
gets near the hole, pull the lever to drop him into the lava. You can only do
this once, so make it count. For the remaining giant, use your Broken Butterfly
and beat him normaly. He has no new attacks (In fact, he lost some) but he is
tougher and hurts more.

*Note: The 15,000PTAs won't appear from the giant you dropped into the lava
unless you leave the room and walk back in*

*******From Bartek Shaarani*******
I had a great strategy for beating the second Gigante once the first one's
toast. Once the first one's down, just run back to the ladder and climb up.
Wait for him to hit the platform, then slide down the line again. Once you hit
the ground, pull a quick 180, yank out a Magnum or a sniper rifle, and you can
easily get a half-dozen shots at him before he lumbers back toward you. Once he
gets too close to you, just run around him, head back to the ladder, climb up,
and repeat the pattern. I
never even got close to getting hit, it was a breeze. One thing to note, about
1 in every 4 times you perform the pattern, the Gigante will roar, put his head
down, and charge across the room at you looking to crush you with his shoulder.
No big deal, it gives you a "L + R Dodge!" prompt, and you can easily roll out
of the way and head back to the ladder.

Bitores Mendez
VVVVVVVVVVVVVVV

This guy is easier than he seems... at first. He has two forms, so be ready.
His weak spot in his first form is his spine.... the thing that connects his
pants to his... upper torso. Pull out your pistol, TPM, or shotgun and blast
this a few times. If you're lucky, he will fall over. Take this time to shoot
it some more then run past him. There should be a ladder. Climb up it and run
to the right to pick up a yellow herb. Look down near the ladder. There should
be a red barrel that you can shoot. Shoot it when the Chief gets near it to
deal extra damage to him. Now, run around the top area, picking up extra items.
When you can't go any further, jump down and turn towards the boss. He should
be far enough away to get around 9 pistol shots in his spine. Once he is close,
he might try to swing his arms at you. Press the "L" and "R" buttons to dodge
it and climb up the ladder again (The one you climbed up at the beginning). As
he walks towards the ladder, put more pistol rounds into him, then run around
the upper area and jump down once more. Shoot another round of bullets into his
spine and repeat until he breaks in half.

Now time for round 2. He will use the beams around the building as poles to
swing from. He's fairly fast and since I don't know much about his attack
pattern, I'll just say: Stay on the bottom floor. If he is far away, pull out
your pistol and shoot him a few times. He will get VERY close to you. Close
enough to pull out your shotgun. Well, pull it out and shoot him. If you hit
him hard enough, he will fall off the beam and onto the ground. This is the
PERFECT chance to pump more rounds into him. Beware that even though this guy
can only swing from poles, his attacks can hurt and are long range. If you
cannot knock him off the poles with the shotgun, run away and wait for another
chance.

*********From Deadside00*********
All I needed on this fight on Professional was 4 Incindiary grenades, and I
think about 15-20, maybe less,  shotgun rounds.  Right at the beginning toss an
incindiary grenades at him.  While he's burning, walk backwards, then toss
another one.  Just time the throws at him when he starts to walk towards you.
Don't use them all at once.  After the fourth one he should seperate from his
legs.  When that happens, do the quick turn to face the ladder behind you and
climb it.  Turn left when done climbing and get near the corner, but not
exactly into it.  Kinda hard to explain.  The trick is to be close enough to
him to get the full force of the shotgun onto him, but not close enough to get
hit.  He'll start swinging around and then he'll get to the beam closest to
you.  That is when you start shooting.  Sometimes after 2 shots he will fall
down onto the ground.  Just let him swing to the beam near you and shoot him,
he will swing his tentacles but completely miss.  That's it.  I Didn't get hit
once.
***********************************************************************




^^^^^^^^
Garrador
VVVVVVVV

This guy is fairly easy. Since he can't see you, he can find you only by the
sounds you make. This includes shots fired, running, telling ashley to "wait",
and things you throw. My strategy was this: Stay behind the pillar in the
middle. When he shows his back to you, pump a shotgun round into it. He will
come after you, but the pillar will get in his way, giving you a little extra
time to  get away. You have to keep on pumping him in the back. Be aware
though, he DOES have a one hit kill attack, so make sure you don't get touched
by him. He uses it rarely, but it IS real so don't get in his way. If you need
him to be distracted, toss a flashbang and he will "hear" it. It takes about 5
shotgun rounds to put him down, and he isn't "too" hard, as long as you don't
run often.

^^^^^^^^^^^
Garrador X2
VVVVVVVVVVV

The only thing I can say about this: Use your rocket launcher you should have
from earlier (see a FAQ to find it). You should be able to take out one
prisoner and damage the other. After this it's all a matter of not running. You
can shoot the bell to the right of where the prisoners started to distract the
remaining prisoner. Do it and snipe him in the back. The bell will break, but
this guy isn't any "tougher" than the others.

******From psufreak100********
Also for the 2 Prisoners that are found in the Castle, if you have a rocket
launcher you can actually fire it at the door directly behind them and it will
kill them both instantly.
*******************************************************************************

******From DarkSageRK******
When you enter this battle there should be a few guards, once you shoot one of
them, both Prisoners hear the noise and charge down ready for battle. (Which
means snipe one and try to get a one-hit kill to make the most of the
situation). Equip your shotgun and hope that you have enough rounds in it to
kill off those annoying cultists or whatever that try and swarm you. Run to
where the Prisoners aren't and shoot some of the small-time enemies. Once you
get off another shot the Prisoners will go from where they are to wherever
you're standing. Dodge and run away then kill some more enemies. Once the
enemies are gone it's pretty much snipe and run. Focus on one of the Prisoners.
(You can mark the target because they're both in different outfits). Snipe him
in the back to kill of the Plagas right there. (You can even go gung-ho and
ring the bells to alert them and kill of the Plagas by getting behind one, but
that strategy kind of fails once they destroy the bells) They will both come
charging at you. Go to wherever they aren't. Then keep on sniping that one and
dodging them until he dies. Collect the money and get to work on the other one,
which will now be MUCH easier to kill off.

Key snipe spots are:

At the way bottom the stairs, right behind one of the pillars.

At the top of the stairs, near the railing. Go to the railing which is closest
to where the corridor that connects the upper stairs with the middle stairs.

In the corridor, right before you get out onto the middle stairs.
***********************************************************************



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Verdugo
VVVVVVVVVVVVVVV

This guy can be easy or hard. He has an UNGODLY high defense and you have a
very low chance of surviving if you don't have either a high powered magnum or
rockets. What's the strategy? Run past him (You will probably get hit) and turn
right to see a Nitrogen canister. When he gets close, tap "A" to knock it over
and freeze him. Run away and pull out the rockets or magnum and start blasting.
He should die in one hit with the rockets. Make sure you are far enough away to
kill him! I was too close my first time and died. If you don't kill him, there
are other canisters in the other room. Just keep blasting him with the magnum
until he falls dead.

****From Scott Mason****
And lastly on the "right hand man boss" I never killed
him I dodged his first series of attacks then froze
him. As soon as the next door opened, I ran to the
hallway and waited for him to come after me. When he
got close I froze him again then ran to the next room.
Same thing. After he was frozen, I ran to the elevator
room and waited then froze him again and just ran
round the desk in the center of the room. When the
elevator "finally" came up I ran in there and used it.
Mission over.



^^^^^^^
Salazar
VVVVVVV

There are two floors in this place. You start on the second. Salazar has 3
attacks. One comes from his tentacles. They will swing at you, but they can be
avoided by pressing the "A", "B", "L", and "R" buttons. If you get hit by them
you will be knocked to the ground, which has a lot of parasites running around.
Quickly go up the ladders to avoid them. The next attack is a head strike which
he hits the platform with. It hurts, but it is RARELY used. I only had it used
on me twice. His final attack is a one hit kill. If you see the monster's mouth
open sideways, he is about to use it. IMMEDIATELY STOP FIRING AND RUN. If you
can run away you can avoid it. To kill him you shoot the eye on the monsters
head. Once you deal enough damage to it (2 shotgun shots) the REAL Salazar will
appear. Take out your magnum and fire around 3-4 shots into him. About 10
magnum shots is all it takes to bring him down. Just remember to run from his
instant kill, and press the buttons to avoid his tentacles.


*Note on the below strategy: You must first shoot the tentacle so it retracts
before you can reach Salazar
********From psufreak100********
Regarding "Salazar", when you first enter the room run all the way to the right
and then straight ahead towards the wall that Salazar is "attached to" so that
you are actually looking at the profile of Salazar.  He will not be able to
perform any attacks on you when you are in this position AND he will also
expose himself witout you ever needing to fire a bullet at him.  I think he
exposes himself in an attempt to locate you.  Anyway, when he does expose
himself one blast with the rocket launcher kills him.  If you don't have the
rocket launcher use the shotgun or handgun on him until he dies.  I've never
lost any health fighting this boss using this method.
*******************************************************************************

^^^^
"U3"
VVVV

*Note: This takes place AFTER the dangling battle*

This guy can also be easy.... if you have magnum ammo. Begin by running around
the stone in the center so he follows you. Run past the red barrel and shoot it
when he gets near it. It wont do *much* damage, but at least it hurt. You
should see a path behind you. Go in the path and look for a lever. Pull it to
bring a gate down between you and "It". Start unloading all of you magnum ammo
into it. You won't have much time to do this as he can break the gate down.
Once you run out of ammo, start using your shotgun. This guy is REALLY easy.
However, I have heard he can burrow under the ground. I haven't seen this, but
please someone give me a strategy on how to counter this. Since I have no
experience on when he burrows, I can't explain what happens. Good luck.

*****From Megawizard*****
When IT burrows underground, it's best to keep running around. Every now and
then you get on of the "action prompts" (one of those A + B, or L + R combos).
If you hit the buttons in time, you dodge out of the way just before IT's
scissor-parasite bursts up from the ground. If you don't dodge in time, you get
nailed pretty hard; but I don't think it kills you. I think the only time he
starts burrowing is near his death. He went underground and tried to hit me
twice with his parasite before resurfacing. One shotgun shell to the head
killed him immediately after that.
*******************************************************************************

^^^^^^^
Krauser
VVVVVVV

This guy is the easiest boss I have faced throughout the game. You have a 3:00
time limit to kill him. And most people run out of ammo or time before they can
kill them. So what do you do? You can't use the environment to help. Grenades
would only hurt you too. So what do we do? Use your knife. It might sound
crazy, but it works. About 6 Knife stabs will kill him. This is easy, but,
unfortunately, most of his attacks are one hit kills. To dodge these attacks
you are going to have to press "A", "B", "L", and "R" buttons to dodge. T's not
that hard, and this guy is pretty easy. This fight is more "Fun" than "hard" so
just have fun with it.


^^^^^^^
Saddler
VVVVVVV

For the last boss, this boss is really easy. I don't want to spoil much for you
guys, but I'll give the basic low down on how to kill him. He has an "eyeball"
on each of his legs. Destroying one will make him drop to the ground. Once he
is on the ground, press "A" to stab his eye. If you do this 8 times, a special
someone will pop out and throw you the "Rocket Launcher (Special)". To get to
it you have to run across a bridge. The only problem is, the bridge falls
before you can reach the other side. Press the buttons that appear to jump at
the last second. Pick up the Rocket Launcher (Special) and fire it at Saddler
to end his life. Like Krauser, this is more "fun" than "hard". Don't worry
about his attacks, I didn't have to heal once.



###############################################################################
4.0) Enemies - What make this game so frightening....
###############################################################################

-------------------------
Townspeople (Los Ganados)
-------------------------
The basic enemies in the game. They carry hatchets, pitchforks, chainsaws,
knives, and other sharp objects. They also come unarmed and try to strangle
you. When this happens, tilt the analog stick left and right to shake them off.
They can throw some of their weapons at you, though they are inaccurate, it
does more damage than just stabbing. The best way to deal with them in groups
is with the shotgun. You can knock them down quite a few at a time. When
soloing one or even two you should shoot them in the foot (to knock them down)
and then slice them up with your knife. It saves ammo, and is a fun way of
killing them.

Sometimes a villager will carry dynamite to throw at you. Knock the villager to
the ground or shoot the dynamite to make it blow up. This will result in the
villager down and anything near him will blow up (including himself).

Sometimes a "super villager" will come around with a potato sack on his head
and a chainsaw in his hands. His chainsaw is a one hit kill. Either snipe him
in the head or pump shotguns into it to take him down. These are tougher than
normal villagers, but drop better rewards.

*Note: Villagers become "tougher" as you travel through the game. It takes a
few more shots to kill them.*

*Note: When you decapitate a villager (by shooting him in the head) there is a
chance a parasite will come out. There are two kinds. The first is like a
flailing axe. This is the harder of the parasites and can EASILY kill you in 2-
3 attacks. Take this one out from far away. The second type of parasite isn't
as hard, but it can detach itself from the host and suck on your face. It
doesn't hurt much, but it gets annoying.*

********From Bartek Shaarani********
Just a note about the parasites. There're actually three kinds of parasites.
Early in the game, the parasites are just wierd gangly things that only hurt
you if they get up close to you. Then there's the axe type, and then there's
the one that you mention detaches from
the body. This third one, while still attached to the townspeople, spits acid
from you at mid-range, and it's pretty much impossible to avoid.
*******************************************************************************

----------------------
Monks (Los Illuminados
----------------------
These are just like harder versions of the townspeople. The only difference is
their choice of weapons. They carry crossbows, scythes, and other various
weapons. There is also a special "red" monk which is harder than the normal
ones but not by much. It's best to take these guys out with the shotgun as you
rarely see them alone.

*Note: some monks also carry shields which can easily be destroyed by the
shotgun. Some even wear metal masks, which block bullets going to their head.*

--------------
Army personnel
--------------
Another upgraded version of the townspeople/monks. These guys carry stun rods,
axes, crossbows, and a few other variants of knives. They are tougher to kill
than monks, but you should have upgraded guns so it shouldn't be much harder to
kill. There are a lot of them, and they do hurt quite a bit. It's best to use
the Striker or Blacktail to take them out. There is also army men with Gatling
guns. You have to be VERY careful of these guys becuase they can chew you up.
Use the Semi-Sniper to hit them in the head about 3-4 times. They should fall
fairly quickly if you snipe them. Other than this, toss a flash bang and hope
for the best. There isn't much difference between these guys and monks, besides
their upgraded armor and weapons.

*******From The Drifter*******
The monks and soldiers with the helmets on can be
delt with somewhat easily.  Before you get to this
part, you can only kick things that are on their
knees.  Once you start fighting people with armored
helmets, shoot them in the knees to get them to kneel,
then you can hit A and perform a high damage suplex on
them that can sometimes bust their head open in one
try.

Dogs (Los Logos Locos / Los Perros Locos)
-----------------------------------------
*For some strange reason I forgot these buggers. Wow for me :*) Thanks
Mixtzin!*

Thank Mixtzin for the following info!
They come in two flavours: Regular and Tentacled.

Regular are grey coloured, large sized beasties with powerful looking chest
muscles.  Their primary attack is to rush at you, jump up and knock you over,
and then clamp down and attempt to tear out your throat (pound A to wriggle
free).

Tentacled are similar to regular, except that they will either spontaneously
sprout tentacles from their back, or the tentacles will be triggered into
sprotuing by being hit by weapons fire.  Their primary attack is to jump back,
then have their many tentacles give you a vicious whipping (I don't recall if
can you pound A to break loose or not).  They may also go for your throat like
their non-tentacled cousins.

Tentacled and Regular are actually the same animal, and it seems to be mostly
random whether on not a Regular will evolve into a Tenatcled or not (how fast
you can kill them also plays a significant role).  Both varieties are smart
enough to sideleap when you've got a bead on them.   They also like to travel
in packs of two to four, and they can quickly overwhelm you with their speed
and sheer aggressiveness.  I've encountered them in three areas: the path
leading to the shore if you take the long route back to the El Gigante fight in
Chapter 2-1; on the path leading to the plank path behind the church in the
village; the hedge maze of the castle.  Recommended weapon to take them out:
Shotgun or Riot Gun.




--------------------------
Suits of armor (Armaduras)
--------------------------

These guys are TOUGH. The best thing I can recommend is magnum or shotgun to
the head. Once their helmet explodes the parasite will show itself, allowing
you to blast at it. Luckily, you don't face many of these guys in the game.

V Parasite MUST be showing for the below strategy.

*****From Blupenguin******
flash grenades will kill any parasite instantly, even suits of armor
*******************************************************************

-----------------------
Sewer bugs (Novistadors
-----------------------
These guys WOULDN'T be tough.... if they weren't invisible. The best thing for
you to do is use the shotgun. A pellet is bound to hit one and then it will
fall to the ground. From here you should just keep shooting until they die.
They will also jump on your character and spit acid on you, so watch out.
Sometimes you will see them flying over a chasm, shoot them to make them fall
into it. This conserves ammunition which will help a lot later in the game.

*******From deadredvenom*******
Hi Marcus, I just have a little strategy for the sewer bugs.  First euip your
rifle, (either one will do) and slowly walk around a corner, stop and look for
a light green gas.  The sewer bugs breath can be seen and all you have to do is
aim just a bit higher and usually in one shot they can be killed.  I saved a
lot of shotgun shells this way.  If you do decide to use this just give credit
to deadredvenom.


--------------
Regenerators
--------------
There are only about 5 of these guys in the game, and that is a VERY good
thing. What you will need is your Sniper Rifle and the thermal scope. You have
to snipe the parasites inside of it's body. To SEE the parasites you need the
thermal scope. If they get too close to you they will bite you and this HURTS.
Don't let it happen. If you don't have the rifle, go back and buy it! It takes
about 13 shotgun shots to kill one. They are slow and bulky, so as long as you
snipe them, you should be fine.

---------------
Iron Maidens
---------------
These are an upgraded version of Regenerators. Upgraded as in they have
spikes... and even when you kill all of their parasites they continue to attack
you. Never go anywhere near them. Snipe all of their parasites and then pull
out your shotgun. Some times there will be a red canister by them... snipe it
to hurt them. Never let these guys get close to you. There are even less of
these than Regenerators, so don't worry about them.

*From Various peoples*
I have gotten a lot of e-mail regarding the Iron Maiden. It seems there is a
final parasite on its back. Shoot it in the leg to make it stumble, then snipe
it out of it's back. This should kill it. Sorry for not posting everyone's
names on this, but it seems every e-mail had something to say about this. :*)

Thanks for this info guys. I'm sorry I can't list you all, but thanks a lot! =)
