    INTRODUCTION
    
    
    ************************
    
    
    Thanks for clicking on the FAQ. This guide will take you on a step-by-
    step speed run through Resident Evil 4. 
    To do a full speed run, you will need to have unlocked either the 
    Chicago Typewriter and/or the HandCannon (as a precaution). 
    
    These weapons will make your speed run hella easier.
    
    
    This speed run applies for BOTH difficulties. At the end of the FAQ I 
    will reveal my own stats for comparison.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    There are three types of players in RE4:
    --BEGINNER
    --INTERMEDIATE
    --ADVANCED
    
    What do these ranks mean?  It basically shows where you stand as a 
    gamer and how fast you can complete Resident Evil 4 for this speed run.  
    Here's the breakdown and see where you rank:
    
    
    BEGINNER:
    -Has finished RE4 at least once or twice
    -Spends time searching through every box for ammo
    -Still gets lost through the game
    -Has a difficult time with the COMMAND buttons (like DODGE)
    -Has died from the first Krauser encounter numerous times
    -Has not unlocked any of the other secret weapons
    
    
    INTERMEDIATE:
    -Has beaten ASSIGNMENT ADA
    -Has unlocked all secret characters in THE MERCENARIES
    -Relies on goodies left over by the enemy
    -Evasive and can escape situations with little damage
    
    
    ADVANCED:
    -Has beaten PROFESSIONAL difficulty
    -Has unlocked the HandCannon and fully upgraded it
    -Can evade enemies with no problems
    -Can beat bosses in less than a minute (except Del Lago battle)
    
    
    The rankings for each category highlight how fast you can do a speed 
    run. Players in each category can complete a speed run game in the 
    following times:
    
    -Beginner:     5-10 hours or more
    -Intermediate: 3-4 hours 
    -Advanced:     2 hours or more
    
    
    Anyway, see how you do in the speed run!

    -The best way to do a speed run is to use either the fully upgraded 
    HandCannon or the Chicago Typewriter. This walkthrough assumes that you 
    are using either (or both) weapons.
    
    
    -In specific areas of the game, you will encounter scripted situations. 
    I will point them out to make sure you don't get stuck in a rut.
    
    
    -When entering doors, press the A button twice to make Leon kick it 
    open.  Also, press the Start button to skip all cutscenes and 
    transmission calls.
    
    
    -Be evasive but defensive! Don't think you can just run past certain 
    enemies without taking damage. Use the environment to your best 
    ability.
    
    
    -Use the Save Typewriter at your own pace. I'll mention a few key 
    points on when to save but it's up to you to choose when you want to 
    save your progress.
    
    
    -If Leon dies during certain sequences, CONTINUE from the previous 
    checkpoint, it's okay to do so.
    
    
    -Before starting a speed run, be sure to purchase either (or all) of 
    the following weapons: the Chicago Typewriter, HandCannon (any Magnum 
    is also fine), and/or the Infinite Rocket Launcher. 
    Leave the rest of the attache case for First Aid Sprays.
    
    
    -I'm assuming that you know your way around the game. If you get lost 
    during the speed run, STOP! Remember, the point of a speed run is to 
    complete objectives in the shortest amount of time. 
    
    
    Let's start the run!

    MY PROGRESS
    
    
    ************************
    
    
    The speed run I listed above was done in Professional Mode. Here's my 
    clear time:
    
    HIT RATIO:      29%
    ENEMIES KILLED: 515
    TIMES KILLED:   0
    CLEAR TIME:     2 HOURS 4 MINUTES 5 SECONDS
    
    
    Yeah, not as impressive as that guy who got under 2 hours but then 
    again, I don't see ANYONE ELSE making it this low!
    
    
    There are a bunch of sequences in the game that take WAY too long (the 
    Ashley parts mostly). But if you have the patience to get through all 
    those parts then you'll have a successful speed run. GOOD LUCK!

    This has nothing to do with Resident Evil 4 but I urge you to go see 
    "Frank Miller's Sin City" in theaters now. It'll be one of the most 
    visually stunning films you'll see this year.
    
    **Oh, for the Jessica Alba fans out there, I've got some HOT and sexy 
    screencaps of her directly from the movie just for you. I ain't telling 
    you where I got them but they're HOT!
