9.29.01
Finished my personal game. Continueing the Faq Game.

9.28.01
This faq is far from finished. I (lethal) started the faq yesterday, so
I had to go back an play through the game and write all of it down. So 
that is the reason the walkthrough is still unfinished. I beleive 
Tdeath finished the game more than once, or knows how to finish it, 
but if you want to ask questions, it would be helpdful if you asked one 
or the other, and not email both the same question. I don't even want 
to spoil the rest of the game for myself, so i am keeping secrets and 
endings guide out until I at least get two or more endings.

Since you already have the manual, you already know what to do.

II. INTRODUCTION
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Silent Hill 2 was introduced late in 2000. But everyone knew it was 
coming out several months earlier when Konami tested Silent Hill with
PS2 graphics. By that time, the fans of the original game were excited 
about experience the game in next-generation graphics. Except for me, 
as Silent Hill left me emotionally scarred.I had to go through 
countless therapy sessions to forget about little demon children. 
But I guess I caved in , bought the game and wrote this faq.

OFFICIAL STORY:
Silent Hill 2 returns players back to the eerie town of Silent Hill in 
a new story with all new characters. Players assume the role of James, 
who receives a cryptic letter from his wife beckoning him to meet her 
in Silent Hill, a place that holds great meaning for the couple. What 
would normally be a comforting, even romantic letter, scares and 
confuses James – his wife has been dead for three years. The 
mystery of the letter compels him to return to the surreal horror 
and all-too-real danger in Silent Hill. 

LETHAL'S INTERPRETATION OF THE STORY:
James is into dead women. 


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
III. CHARACTERS- by Tdeath (tyrantdeath@hotmail.com)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

James Sunderland:
His life was happy, he had a good life, a loving wife, and no real 
worries.  But James Sunderland could never have possibly imagined what 
would happen to make his world become destroyed, his loving wife, Mary, 
had suddenly captured a rare disease, striking James in the most bitter 
of ways as he watched her die slowly and painfully for a very long time, 
until she finally died a sudden death one day, leaving him forever.  
James is naturally grief stricken over this, and even though it has 
been several years, he still mourns every couple of days, unable to 
take the pain of her never being there, the pain of seeing things 
around him every day of his life that remind him of his departed love, 
and he is apparently lost his meaning to life. James is a man who has 
nothing to lose, and will take out anything that stands in his way of 
finding Mary, but otherwise is a simple and polite man. 


Mary Shepherd Sunderland
A quiet and polite woman, once wife to James Sunderland. Having been 
deceased three years ago, it seems frightening that she would suddenly 
come back from the dead and begin writing cryptic love letters to James,
effectively scaring the hell out of him and filling him full of hope at 
the same time. But you know what they say, "Love does strange things to 
a person..." and in this case, that exact quote may have a lot of
point... 

Angela Orosco
The very first human that James stumbles upon in Silent Hill. She is 
apparently searching for her mother and siblings, summoned in a very 
simillar way to Silent Hill as James has. On the outside, she looks and 
sounds like a very level headed and pleasant woman, although a little 
nervous. But on the inside, there is something tormenting and posessing 
her, driving her slowly to madness. Her past has been a sad one, running 
from home several times because of her father, who sounds like a sick 
and abusive man who had tormented her once her mother and siblings 
were away. But it may actually be quite the opposite, her "mama" and 
siblings may not even exist... 


Laura
A little girl wandering the barren and evil streets of Silent Hill on 
her lonesome, and somehow surviving without even a scratch. She is 
perhaps the only surviving local of Silent Hill, and knows all, but 
seeing as how she hates James with an extremely bitter animosity, 
she isn't exactly willing to tell all. If it were not for this 
unknowning hatred for James, she would actually be a normal, innocent 
child. She is actually kind and curious as young children should be, 
but once again this unknown hate for James keeps her from being 
anything but kind to the player. As ridiculous as her bitterness 
seems, she may actually have quite a good reason for hating him, 
and he perhaps has commited a terrible crime, without even knowing... 

Maria
Mysterious, flirtatious, and always curious, A mysterious woman who 
bears a resemblance to Mary, James's dead wife. The simillarity is 
in the face and the voice, but otherwise non existant. She has a polar 
opposite personality to Mary, very provocative and ambitious to Mary's 
quiet and polite manner. James can't help but feel as though he is 
talking to his wife when he speaks to her, however, and the level of 
intimacy that their conversations have is so high sometimes that 
James could barely distinguish. But Mary's future is undetermined, 
and it may be very, very black indeed... 

Eddie
Eddie is hands down the most disturbed character in Silent Hill 2. 
When you first meet him, he is praying to the porcelain god outside 
of a room with a dead man in it, to which he repeatedly defends 
himself (even without James asking if he did it), saying "I didn't do 
it! I didn't kill anybody!" and is very cowardly and pathetic. His 
normal persona, when not puking and denying obviously recent committed 
crimes, is actually very outgoing and generous. He has the mind of a 
child, you could say. But there is another side of Eddie that he cannot 
control, a side that is insane, murderous, and overtly paranoid. This 
side unfortunately comes out more than one would hope, and he might 
just get in James's way of finding Mary, and James may not be too 
happy about that. Perhaps a confrontation is iminent in the future.... 


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
IV. WEAPONS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Stick
The wooden plank can be summed up in 3 simple words: easy, effective, 
fast. People denounce the plank with nails in it because it looks 
flimsy, but soon after use, you realize all it takes is a lot of skill, 
and you can go through the first half of the game with it. It also uses 
no ammo, and is the first weapon you get. And even if you don't like 
the wooden plank with nails in it, get used to it, because it's all 
your getting through the first level.  
 
Gun
Like Harry, James is quite a bad shot, and the dark enviroment doesn't 
help the situation. This weapon is more for cloes range and desperate 
situations.  

Steel Pipe
Yes, the steel pipe makes a return from Silent Hill. But this time it's 
bigger and a lot more powerful. The Steel Pipe has three attacks: the 
normal swings which are done by tapping the X button, and then you can 
hold X and release the R2 button and he'll stab the pipe right through 
the enemy, and then press both buttons down at the same time and 
he'll bring it down hard on their head. A very fun weapon to use. 

Great Knife
Pyramid Head (aka The Butcher) at one time wielded this weapon. It was 
the sword he dragged behind him that you feared so greatly. Well, after 
you kill him, you find his hide out and discover the gigantic blade 
among a mess of blood. James decides it would be a fine weapon indeed, 
so you take it and now you can be just like The Butcher, dragging the 
sword behind you and then you see a Nurse Demon and...**slice** with 
one hit! Careful though, this thing is as slow as James dragging it. 
(how do you think you won against the Butcher in the first place?!) 

Chainsaw
Oh you damn right. The chainsaw is back and it's no ordinary chainsaw. 
this thing is a BIG chainsaw. you can slash through anything with it, 
and it will even cut enemies in half! And James can also go temporarily 
insane when using it, waving it in the air and screaming like a mad man. 
It's real funny to watch. 

Hyper Spray
This will be unlocked once you get the same ending twice.
This stuff is interesting. You can spray it directly at ANY enemy in 
the game (including bosses) and they will stop dead in their tracks, 
allowing you to dispose of them however you want. Careful though, 
James can be hurt (and possibly killed) by this spray if you use it 
too much at once. 

Handgun
Well, a new handgun and it's much more powerful, but the problem is it 
can only hold 10 bullets. You find it around the second level, where 
you gladly acceot it into your humble inventory. 

Shotgun
Double Barreled action. This thing is one of the most powerful weapons 
in the game and has no equal. But the problem is that it takes a long 
time to aim, shoot, and then comes the recoil. If somehow you 
don't take out the enemy on the first shot, you'll most definitely 
get hit. A couple of nice things about the shotgun is it has six shots 
and is auto loading. Very cool. 

High Powered Hunting Rifle
Beware, Patients and Mannequins, this gun is your worst nightmare. This 
thing will not only kill them in one (or if they're lucky two shots) 
shot, but it will send 'em flying back to wherever they came. James 
somehow knows how to hold the thing too, and he does it well. Maybe 
he did some huntin' back in the day? Seeing the way he handles that 
chainsaw, he may just have a bit of a killer in em... 


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
V. ENEMIES 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
I just avoid every enemy and kill when I have to, tdeath on the other 
hand likes to fight.

----------------------------------------
Patient Demons (Straight jacket Monster)
----------------------------------------
Background Info:
These monsters have had many different names before hand, ranging from 
straitjacket monster, stretching monster, even orifice! But the official 
name is apparently the Patient Demon. these demons were once part of 
either the psychiatric ward of the Brookhaven hospital or the residents 
of Silent Hill, turned into demons once brought into the nightmare/hell 
world, where they appeared in both dimensions. You can tell the 
difference between certain kinds, but they aren't very distinguishable. 
In any case, these things are disgusting, vile creatures that have had 
their straitjacket melded together with an extra layer of skin that has 
been put upon them. They spit clouds of acidic vomit and are tough 
competitiors if not dealt with correctly. 

Strategies:
Any weapon will put them into submission, but it is wise to use the 
Nail Plank because you can down them in three to four shots with it, 
then stomp on them quickly so that they don't scurry away and regenerate. 

Attacks:
Vomit Cloud
Foot Chew

----------------------------------------
GIANT ROACHES
----------------------------------------

Background Info:
We all remember these from Silent Hill. They were a petty annoyance, 
and often got in the way when trying to attack bigger enemies or 
getting past a walkway. Well, in Silent Hill 2, they are no different, 
except for the fact they are much more weaker... 

Strategies: 
If you want to attack them tactically, well then here you go: stomp 
on them. You don't have to knock them down first, you can stomp on 
them already without even hitting them. You can also run over them. 
If you really want to be an evil little bastard, 
use the handgun on them. 

-I just avoid them, using a zig-zag pattern. (lethal)

----------------------------------------
Disformed Mannequin
----------------------------------------

Background Info: 
A very interesting creature. They were at one time mannequins that 
are seen in shopping malls and clothing stores, but were chopped off 
at the midsection and sewn together , making two lower body halves 
come to life with evil. Although their attacks can be tough, they 
are in poor reach of you and can easily be put into submission 

Strategies: 
Since they can put a hurt on you, make sure your taking on only one 
when using the Nail Plank. If there are multiple ones, use the handgun 
or shotgun. But the steel pipe is very effective later on, 'tis 
their bane. 

Attacks:
Kick/punch?! can't tell.

---------------------------------------
UNDERHANGERS
---------------------------------------
Underhangers
Background Info:
Yet another new creature in Silent Hill 2. These once human creatures 
have obviously had some changes, as they sport gigantic, parasitical 
arms that hide blood sucking tendrils underneath. They fortunately 
can only attack under the grates of the nightmare world's floors, 
and are easy targets for you if you want to attack them. 
Strategies: 
Basically just run and they'll never hit you. But if you want to 
fight, continuously step away while firing a gun and they'll 
eventually fall to the ground below, making a satisfactory smack. 

Attacks:
Blood Suck 
- I think the blood suck also can stun James.

---------------------------------------
DOORMEN
---------------------------------------
Doormen
Background Info:
Very interesting creatures indeed. They apparently are creatures 
that got melded with doors, making for the most odd creature 
you'll ever see. The first one you fight is a boss, and is very 
difficult to attack, as it is extremely strong. These things have 
an instant death move in which they eat you through the slit on the 
bottom of the tables, and can tackle you as well. Very dangerous 
creatures in general, and should be dealt with swiftly. 

Strategies: 
Use the shotgun, since rifle ammo is sparse. If your one on one 
with a doorman, then use the steel pipe, but only if you have an 
exceptionally large amount of room. 

Strategies: (the boss fight) (nullfire@netzero.net)
This battle can be tough, as this is a very small room and the enemy 
is quite wide. When he gets close he'll bite on your head. As with 
previous bosses, you'll want to keep on the opposite side of the 
room when you're attacking. If you've got hunting rifle ammo, use it. 
About 10-12 shots will kill him. If you can get a little distance 
from the enemy, fire off two shots and wait a second. Two hits will 
knock him down. Allow him to get up then fire two more shots into 
him. Move to the other side of the room, reload and repeat the 
process.

Attacks:
Tackle
Consume (Instant Death) 


---------------------------------------
HANGERS
---------------------------------------

Background Info:
Monsters confined to cells in the ceiling. you face three of them 
in Brookhaven Hospital as a boss fight. They can strangle James, 
but other than that, this boss fight should be relatively painless. 

Strategies: 
run across the room from the hangers, and don't go under them. As 
long as your using the shotgun on the first two, then things should 
go easy enough. On the last one, use the handgun. 

Attacks:
Leg Choke

---------------------------------------
Crazy Eddie
---------------------------------------

Indeed. Eddie finally cracks and believes James is a bad guy, so 
after letting all of the truths revealed about him, James and him 
battle to the death. This is a damned hard battle if your not 
careful. For veterans of Silent Hill, this is the Cybil fight. 

Strategies: 
for the first time around, keep blasting. Keep your bullets in 
check and just keep blasting. When the dual shock controller 
begins vibrating really violently, that means hit the R3 button, 
which is the right analog stick, and you'll automatically recover 
using a health item. 

For the second form, hide behind the meats, popping out to shoot 
the hell out of the man, and then hiding back again. If your good, 
you can pop out and go up right behind him and use the chainsaw 
or Shotgun and then hide again and he will never get a shot in. 
Another good tactic if your not good at dodging shots is to go 
right up to Eddie, as he will instead try and beat the crap out 
of James, which is a lot easier to deal with. If your able to 
keep a somewhat cool head during this battle, you'll survive, 
but Eddie won't. 

Strategies: (nullfire@netzero.net)

There's no real tactic to this fighting this battle. If you run, 
Fatty will shoot you. Just raise your best weapon (hopefully you've 
got some hunting rifle shells) and keep firing. Heal if you need to 
(you shouldn't have to more than once).
After Fatty runs away, follow him to the next room.

Boss Battle:
Again, you don't need to follow any strategy. Keep firing at him 
until he's dead. It should only take about 10 shots from the hunting 
rifle. You may need to heal once, as he'll get a few shots in 
during reloading.

Strategies (iceheart0@earthlink.net)

Anyway I think I found a good way to deal with Eddie, when I fought 
him Iused a ampoule and then Great Knifed his ass!! And he went 
running scared,in the meat locker I hid behind some meat and waited 
for Eddie to come and used a ampoule then Great Knifed him again 
and he went down on his lard ass. Could you try this out and see 
how well it works for you.

Attacks:
Gun Shot
Punch


---------------------------------------
PYRAMID HEAD (1st Encounter info)
---------------------------------------

Backround Info:
Wheres a visor or something. Likes to "get down" with monsters. 
Isn't much of a threat until you face it. Your mysterious 
nemesisthroughout the game, he wields many different weapons 
and is very deadly with all of them. you best strategy is to 
always stay on the move and, above all, STRAFE. The first 
encounter will have you fighting against him and the great 
knife, which if James is only nicked by, will deplete more 
than a half of your life on all difficulties. If your even 
remotely close to him though, you get, shall we say, 
"cleaved". The second time, seeing as how you've taken his 
precious sword, he now wields a spear, which can either 
impale you or hurt you severley. The second to last battle 
of the game requires you to fight two of them at once!! 
thankfully, the strategy is all here. 

Strategies:
The first encounter will be you vs the butcher with his big 
sword. The environment that you fight in will be a squared 
room. what you want to do is keep him in the center, shooting 
and unloading a full clip of your handgun into him. Put 
yourself into the corners of the room, and the moment you see 
even a little portion of his body enter the camera, STRAFE to 
the next corner of the room , repeating the process. Never let 
him be trailing the walls, as then he will approach you head on, 
and thats really hard to dodge. 

(Kingoffighters23@aol.com wrote:)
Hey I noticed in your FAQ/walkthrough that you say to attack 
the first boss(P. head).  You do not need to hit him even once. 
He will leave on his own when the music changes. Just avoid him.  

Throughout the game he will continue to stalk you and Maria. 
Careful, he loves using those variety of toys of his. 

---------------------------------------
PYRAMID HEAD (2nd Encounter 2X love)
---------------------------------------

The second encounter will leave you crying for mercy, as there 
are now two Pyramid Heads to contend with, each wielding long 
and angry spears. The strategy is basically the same as last time, 
except now they have become wise to the tactics James implies. 
You'll want to alternate the directions of your strafing now, 
as they will eventually learn your pattern, then block you and 
ultimately kabob you. Of course, use the shotgun and rifle. and 
never ever reload using the default reload, alway reload via 
the menu screen. 


Strategies: (nullfire@netzero.net)
This should be a very easy battle. This is a large room, so 
just keep your distance. Run to a corner and blast a few rounds 
into the enemy. Run to the opposite corner when they get close. 
You shouldn't take any damage if you're careful. After a fair 
amount of damage they will stop coming after you.



---------------------------------------
FINAL BOSS
---------------------------------------

so as not to spoil the game, here is the strategies for the final 
boss. simple. Strafe when the thing unleashes the cloud of black 
moths upon you, or run away in a cirular motion, much like in the 
first game with the lightning. And fire off one or two shots from 
the rifle and repeat. Careful of this boss getting close to you, 
it'll choke you with the long black tail while screaming in your 
face...not a lovely way to go. After pumping it full of enough 
rifle shells, it will drop to the ground screaming, begging for 
a quick death. Give it the executioner's shot. 

Strategies: nullfire@netzero.net
As with all previous bosses, you'll want to keep your distance, 
fire a few shots, and then run to a new spot. This boss has an odd 
attack, however, that will make you move a little differently. She 
will throw out a swarm of butterflies. Try running underneath her 
to get her to throw out the butterflies. Keep running as they chase 
you. Just as they start to dissipate, turn and fire a few shots at 
the enemy. Keep using this tactic and you should be fine. She also 
has a close attack where she grabs you with a tentacle. Don't let 
her get too close to you. After you've shot her a bit she'll fall 
to the floor. The only thing left to do is to walk up and shoot 
her one last time. Enjoy the ending.


attacks: 
moths
choke



 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
VI. STRATEGY YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE YOU START (by lethal)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-Don't fight. This ain't Resident Evil, James is not a member of 
 S.T.A.R.S. 

-(R2+SQUARE)+ X.
 All this means is run with stick in attack mode, a press x everytime
 something gets in James' way. i swear it's hillarious when he misses.

-Don't kill anything. So far (2+ hrs.) I only had to kill one monster, 
 and I did it becuase he was looking at me weird.

-Run. Yeah, if you continue to run, James, will get slower and 
 slower, but who cares, he's just a video game character. The only 
 place you walk is within rooms you know are safe from enemies.

-Conserve Health Drinks. Even if you get hurt once, don't use the
 health drinks until your in the red. You can check you status by 
 pressing start. If you see that the screen has turned red, then you 
 should take a drink. It's just common sense. I think I learned to 
 conserve after playing Code Veronica. 

-Conserve Ammo. You'll need it for the boss fights later on in the
 game. Besides, James, is a bad shot.

-shoot but don't kill. Especially with tougher enemies, use weapons
 to maim but never spend to much time trying to kill enemies. A good
 example fo this would be when your in the company of Maria, every
 moment you spend trying to kill something, is the same moment Maria
 could be harmed.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
WALKTHROUGH -Normal difficulty, Normal Puzzles. (by lethal)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

From the opening scene make a left. After exiting the bathroom, there 
will be at the scene in which James talks about getting the letter. 
After the cuts scene examine the car to find the map. After you get the
map walk left until you make it to the Toruca lake entrance. Go down 
the path until you reach a well, examine the well to find the first 
save spot. Continue on until you reach the gates and enter. Continue 
to walk into the fog until you stumble upon a girl kneeling on the 
ground. A cut scene occurs in which your introduced to Maria. After 
the cut scene turn left.
	
Then continue on till you to get to a house. To the right of the house
is a gate enter it. that continue along the path , pass the cars, pass 
the ranch, and continue until you reach the to the building that leads 
you into the town. Now continue to walk through the pass there should 
be a body of water (or fog) on James' right.

---------------------------
TOWN
---------------------------

Once you enter the town, most of the buildings will be not be 
accessible, continue to walk until you get to the corner of Sanders 
Street and Lindsey Street, a cut scene will be activated in which you 
must follow the trail of blood. Continue down Lindsey Street and take 
a right on Vachss road. Continue down the road, you will notice the 
red save object on the table, which isn't accessible yet. Just 
continue down the path until you he reached a boarded up tunnel.
	
A cut scene will occur in which you finally meet your first monster 
(patient demon). James will grab a board with a nail in it, and will 
look like if he want to beat on the monster pretty bad. The monster 
doesn't even attack. A few swings will put it down for good. Exit the 
tunnel and another cut scene will follow. 

On your way back to town, notice that the area where you found the 
red save object. The area is now open. In the lower left corner of 
the area, there will be a health drink. There will also be another 
health drink under the table. When your ready to leave the area, 
save your game.

From here on out, the monsters will go at full strength, 
as A tip, DO NOT EVEN TRY TO FIGHT, the point is to survive. 
James isn't a super hero, he can, and will lose. Just pass every 
monster you try to fight as James is quite the klutz and misses, 
even with a stick.
 
Make your way down to Saul Street, on the lower bottom of your map. 
While walking down that road, you will notice an open trailer, enter 
that. Once Inside, you will notice a red object save. Save your game, 
but also remember to grab that piece of paper on the couch. The paper 
will give you a clue to head up to Neely's bar on Neely street 
(center of map). 

Head to Neely's bar, making sure to avoid any un-necessary monster 
fights. The main door to the bar will be closed, but you will be able 
to access the bar through the side door. Once inside, grab the map in 
the corner, and your map with open up. It will now have circled both 
the Woodside Apartment area, as well as the dead end to Martin street.

Make your way down to up to Martin street until you reach the end. 
When you reach the end of the street, turn left and you'll discover 
body, search the body and you'll find the apartment gate key. 

---------------------------
WOODSIDE APARTMENT COMPLEX
---------------------------

Now head to the Woodside apartment complex and use the key on the 
chain link fence doorway. Once inside the complex, enter the first 
doorway you see. Once inside, turn left and you should find the map 
of the first floor of the building. Also search the room for the 
red object save, make sure to save your game. 


Now make your way up the staircase until you get to your first door 
(off to the side). Enter that door. Now make your way right until 
you reach room 205, now once you enter this room, you must remember 
that a sleazy mannequin monster is lying on the ground waiting to 
pounce, It will not harm you until you do the next thing on this list.
 Notice the the light shining from the mannequin, examine that light 
and you will get the flashlight 
(which you can turn off and on by pressing o). As soon as you do that, 
the demon will wake up and then attack. You got options, I suggest you 
leave the place, but if your hungry for action, be my guest. Now make 
your way to room 208. If you look on the bookcase you will find the 
room 202 key
(*I might have overlooked it, or didn't get it until I went back later)
now go into the room with the clock. Turn on your flashlight and go 
to the wall with some scribbles on them. When you do that, 
you will give given the following names:

Henry 
Mildred 
Scott

Remember this for later Now go to the clock and read the text on the 
right side of the clock. After that it will give you an option to push 
the clock. Pick no, as you are unable to push it. Then look at the face 
of the clock and it should read :
7:46 and 15 seconds

Now backtrack and make your way to the staircase. Once in that area, 
climb the stairs until you reach another door. Enter it, and make sure 
your light is on. There should now be some bars to the right of James. 
Examine the bars and you will be asked if you want to pick up the key. 
As you try, the evilness that is Laura appears. It seems as if you can't 
reach the key. It's best to move on. Now make your way to Room 301. 
There should be a bright red shopping cart , examine it and you will 
receive the hand gun.

NOTE: DON'T USE IT YET. YEAH, YOU MAY FEEL SAFER, BUT ALL YOUR DOING
IS WASTEING AMMO FOR A BIGGER FIGHT IN THE FUTURE.

 Now make your way back to 2F and James will discover a noise north of 
his location. If you go north, near room 208, you will discover the 
solitary figure of a monster. You can't harm it, which means that it's 
not a good thing. Now enter room 208 and you will discover another dead 
body. Now search the bookcase get the room 202 key if you didn't get it
earlier. Now exit the room. Don't panic, 
BUT THAT CREEPY MONSTER IS GONE. 

Make your way to room 202, and turn on your light. Go into the room with 
the red glow and make sure to investigate the hole in the wall. After a 
few moments of terror, you received the clock key. Now make your way 
back to room 208. Now you are able to open the face on the clock. Examine 
the clock face and go into your inventory and select the clock key, 
use it and now you will be treated to a puzzle:

Remember Henry, Mildred and Scott? That's the key to this puzzle. Henry's 
arrow represents hours, Mildred Represents Minutes, and Scott Represents 
Seconds. If you look closely, and add all the data together, you should 
come up with 9:10 and 15 seconds. After you set that time, go to the 
right side of the clock and read the text, and press yes to move the 
clock. The clock will now be movable.

Enter the hole and now you'll be in a safe house, there will be a red 
save object on the left. Save your game. Make sure to make your way to 
the kitchen and get the health drink. Now exit out the other door across 
from the kitchen. Now make a right and go out the blue door. Then take 
the stairs up to the next floor and enter the door.  Then make your way 
to the area where that evil child kicked the key from your hand and get 
the fire escape key-there will be two patient demons guarding the key, 
so make sure to get out of there as fast as you can. 
	

Then make your way to room 307, and you will be treated to some 
monster porn :-(, anyways, you will know this figure pretty much through
out the whole game. After the cut scene, go back into the closet and 
get the courtyard key. Now make your way down and go into room 303, 
there is a patient demon in here, but there is also a first aid kit. 
Just avoid the demon all together. Now exit the room Now, to the right 
of room 303 is staircase, just follow down the hall until you reach the
blue door, passing 304 and 305. Go down the stairs and you will find a 
room with a door missing, go down that hall and make sure that you have
you light equipt , then examine the object on the ground, and get the 
canned juice.

Now make your way back to the 2f, and make your way to the room with 
a garbage chute jam (next to room 203), it should be circled on the map. 
Now, examine the chute and select canned juice from your inventory to 
unclog the chute. Exit the chute room, and make a left, now enter the 
blue door that leads to a stairway. This is the first stairway you 
first took (the one with the save). Before you go outside, examine the 
door left of the red object save, you will be able to unlock it with 
the courtyard key you found during that whole "porn" fiasco , now make
your way outside. make your way out into the surrounding area Apartment 
complex, and into the alley in the middle of the complex, you should 
find a magazine and the old man coin. Read the memo, now return to the 
stairway area with the save and enter the door that leads to the 
courtyard. 

---------------------------
COURTYARD
---------------------------

Now make your way to the pool in the middle of the courtyard. Being 
that James is such a klutz, he will fall into the pool. There will be 
three patient demons in the pool. DO not fight, it's hard enough 
fighting one when you have to deal with three. Just examine the baby 
stroller and grab the snake coin. DO NOT try and use the pool ladder 
to get out since it doesn't work, I made this dumb mistake and lost 
a lot of life. Just walk to the opposite side of the pool and there 
should be steps leading up to your safety. Now go to the door to the 
right of the pool area, in the South East region of the area. 
Enter the door, and make your way to room 101, you will get a cut 
scene and be introduced to Eddie and his buttcrack.

After that scene, back track and return to the area with the red 
object save.  Make your way to the second floor, and make a left as 
soon as you enter. When you enter, James will notice that there is 
no fire escape and jump into the window of another building. 

---------------------------
APARTMENT 2 
I forgot the name right now,
sue me.
---------------------------

Now head into the bathroom and James will notice a wallet floating 
amongst the chunks (of course he grabs it and finds this memo:

12>> 01 <<  02  >> 07
(it's randomly generated, but I will use my example)

Now leave the bathroom and make a left into the bigger room. In the 
kitchen there should be another health drink. If you search the rest 
of the room, you will see a safe sitting on a chair.
 
I think this is the combination to move the dial in one direction, 
follow the guidelines I put (don't you second guess me!). Whenever 
the code says move in this direction >> or << use your directional 
pad to move in that direction.

start and put the dial to twelve (I went left first, but I think it 
shouldn't matter) 12, then I turned the dial >> until I reached 1, 
then with one click << I turned the dial to 2 then finally turned 
the dial >> to 07. The prize is a whole load of bullets, and you 
will need them soon enough.
 
Now, make your way to the door across from the safe. Once outside, 
make a right, until you find the white and blue trim door that 
usually leads to a a stair well. On James' left, you will find 
the map of the building on the wall. If you go back into the second 
floor, you will notice all the doors are locked, on one of the doors 
there is a note, it tells you that you that there is a key somewhere 
on the first floor. Now head down the staircase 
(where you found the map) and head to room 105 on the first floor. 
There will be a save in this room, as well as a puzzle that cannot 
be solved until you get the last coin. 

Now make your way to room 109. I think there should be bullets in 
this room, inside will be another door which will activate another 
cut scene ( Angela= psycho!). You will now be able to acquire the 
knife Angela left, which James CANNOT use. Make sure to examine the 
small table again to find the prisoner coin. Also, there is a picture 
in the center of the room, make sure to check it out 
(for story purposes). 

Make your way back to room 105 and now you must solve the puzzle. One 
of the harder ones so far.

Three bright coins in five holes be,
At one end sits the seducer of she,
The wind from behind the woman doth play
The Formless One, Null, lies furthest from they
The Old One beside the Serpent Sits not.
Tis to the prisoner's left, that he does rot.
		
Here is the order (O= empty):
				
Easy riddle mode: old man coin, O, snake coin, O, 
prisoner coin 

Normal Riddle Mode: O, Old Man, Prisoner, O, Snake 

Hard Mode: O, Old Man, O, snake, prisoner 


After that, re-examine the shelf to get the Lyne key.
Now go back to the room with a note on the 2nd floor, you are now able 
to open it with the key you found. Now go through the room, and you will 
notice that there is a passageway to a ledge. Go through that ledge 
and into the other room. Search around the bed to find the Apartment 
Stairway Key. There is also a red save in this area, save your game and 
back track to the hallway of the second floor. Now make your way to the 
stairway entrance by room 208 and use the key. 

MAKE SURE TO EQUIP YOUR GUN AND ENTER THE STAIRWELL. MORE MONSTER PORN.

BOSS FIGHT

The trick to this fight is to lure the monster to the corners of the 
room. He is very slow, so you have a better chance of dodgeing his 
attacks. When he is motioning to swing, go to the other side of the room 
and fire, often it's best to lure him into the conrer and move when he is 
going to do the motion. Never get caught in his motion, as one or two 
swings are the only things he needs to finish you off. THIS IS WHERE 
HOARDING BULLETS AND HEALTH DRINKS PAYS OFF. I only used one first aid 
package but had 5 or 6 health drinks left.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Easier suggestion:
(Kingoffighters23@aol.com wrote:)
Hey I noticed in your FAQ/walkthrough that you say to attack 
the first boss(P. head).  You do not need to hit him even once. 
He will leave on his own when the music changes. Just avoid him.
----------------------------------------------------------------

Once you beat him, he will go down into the water. If you'd like to save, 
back track. otherwise continue down stairs until you reach a door. Enter 
it, and you should be outside. Now go outside an you should find a first 
aid kit near a set of orange cones. Now continue to walk down the road 
until a cut scene is triggered between James and evil laura.


---------------------------
Rosewater Park
---------------------------
Now head to Rosewater Park. After the scene, walk and turn left into the 
first stairway. Go into the corner of this area and you should find 2 
sets of ammo. Now head to the Gazebo and there should be some ammo on a 
stone bench outside of the gazebo. Now go left of the Gazebo into the 
other passage way. there should be an entrance he, go to the other side 
and read the engraving on the statue. there should also be another health 
drink on a bench nearby. Now backtrack to the path with a Gazebo and 
continue forward. There should be another item near the telescope, now 
continue down this path. Cut scene with Maria. Your mission is to go to 
the Lake view hotel.

Maria now accompanies you as well. BE CAREFUL. If she gets harmed, you 
get harmed. Also, if she is too close, you might strike her as well. 
Be sure to just avoid any unnecessary fight when you are with Maria.
I have also heard that the way you act or deal in the presence of Maria
affects the the end of the game.


---------------------------
Jack's Inn + Texxon
---------------------------
Now pass the parking lot and head south towards Jack's Inn. While at 
Jack's inn you will find another save point on a car, make sure to save 
your game if you already haven't. Now make your way to the Texxon station  
and you will find the steel pipe on the hood of a car in the area. Make 
sure to get this, as it's packs a lot more power than that puny plank. 
make sure to search the area of the gas station for hand gun bullets and 
not one, not two, but three health drinks. (remember, try to conserve 
as much as you can during the game!)

You can now head towards Nathan Avenue and waste time, or go for the 
money shot and head to Pete's Bowl-A-Rama, because the area north of 
Nathan avenue is still blocked off.

---------------------------
Bowling Alley + Night Club
---------------------------

Now make your way to Pete's Bowl-A-Rama nearby. Before you enter, search 
the front of the alley for another health drink. If you conserved properly, 
then you would have at least ten to twelve health drinks and at least 
one or two first aid packets.

Maria will then stay outside while you investigate the bowling alley. 
Now enter the door on the left from where you entered. Laura will be 
mentally abusing Eddie while he eats a pizza. Follow Laura out the 
door. Cut scene. Now make your way to Heaven's night. Maria has a lot 
of keys :-) Now make your way up the stairs and continue until you 
reach the last door and enter it. 


---------------------------
Brookhaven Hospital
---------------------------

There will be a first aid kit in the 
middle of the room. Now make your way down Carroll St. and then a 
cut scene will occur in which you see Laura go into Brookhaven Hospital. 
When you enter, search the wall near the door for the map. Now make 
your way to the reception office and save your game, most if not all 
the doors on this floor are locked (as usual).

While in the health office, you will be given the names of three 
patients of the hospital,
Jack Davis
Joseph Barkin
Joshua Lewis

But that isn't very important (cept story wise I guess).
There is also another health drink on the desk in the room. Last but 
not least, go to the type writer and read the eerie journal. then get 
the purple bull key. Now head to the men's locker room on 2f. Search 
the lab coat for the examination room key. Now make your way to the 
woman's locker room for a BIG surprise. First examine the teddy bear to 
find the bent needle, then search around the lockers to find the SHOTGUN!. 
Although you may have it, remember, conserve! Now head to the 
examination room (3) on the 2nd floor. Get the first aid kit as well 
as the (IMPORTANT) four digit code by examining the typewriter.

Now head towards M2 and examine the night stand. It should contain the 
Lapis Eye Key, as well as shotgun shells. NOW COMBINE THE LAPIS AND 
THE PURPLE BULL KEY and store it for later. Now go to room M3 WARNING, 
there's a nurse in here, this is one of those instance where you must 
kill, since the nurse are tough enough. Now grab the health drink 
and set of bullets.

Make your way to m6 and get the shotgun shells and health drink. 
When I last counted, I had almost 15 health drinks, how much do 
you have left :-)

Now head back to the first floor, avoiding any unnecessary conflict. 
Now head into the examination room . Now make your way to the doctor's 
lounge and get the shotgun shell that are in the sink. there should 
also be some more journals on the shelf in the examination room.

Now examine the bulletin board to find the code you will need later:

(Normal + East) 7335
(Hard) T= 1328

Now make your way to 3F. NURSES! this is one of those times where 
you must fight once again, since you will need to input the code 
without distraction. There should also be a first aid kit near the 
elevator opening, make sure to pick that up. Now use the four number 
code to unlock the double doors with the code. Now head to S3.

Maria will then decide to sleep (why? don't know, but it's better 
now since you don't have to take care of her) Before you leave, 
examine the table to find the roof key. Now go to the shower room. 
Now head to the center of the room to the drain. Try using the bent 
needle, but it's still not long enough. head to S11, and avoid any 
possible fighting, as always. This is a save room, grab the health 
drink and head towards S14 and there will be a puzzle. This is the 
"Louise" puzzle. Remember this place for later. Now head up the stairs 
to the roof.  Use the key to enter the area. Now search the corners 
to find a diary.

(read it, it will affect your ending)

(don't read it and it will affect your ending)
Choose this if you want happy thoughts, just stand near it for a 
brief moment and then proceed with the game). Now, try opening the door 
in the area and you will be greeted by "pyramid head". James will then 
be really $%^&ed up. Much of his health has depleted. NOW IT'S TIME 
TO USE THOSE HEALTH ITEMS :-P. James will now be in the special treatment 
room on the third floor. Now go into the room where the skidmarks end. 
On the wall in this padded cell is another code you will have to remember. 
In the normal game, I believe the code is 5752, but it may be different 
for your game. Now backtrack and unlock the door which leads back into 
the corridor and head back to S14 to finally solve that puzzle.

This puzzle can be difficult, It took me a while to finally figure out 
how the hell to solve this puzzle.

Take the combo key (Lapis/P. Bull Key) and use it on the padlock type 
thing to remove the chains.

Now  Use the code you found in the examination room on the remote-control 
looking lock. Finally, sue the code you found in the padded room on the 
turn number lock. A Piece of hair will be discovered, all that for a 
piece of hair?

Now go back to the shower area and examine the drain again. Now combine 
the needle and the piece of hair, and you will get the elevator key. Now 
head to 3f and use the key on the elevator. Now examine the elevator to 
enter it and then examine the panel inside the elevator. Now head to 1F. 

Now head to C3 on the first floor  and get the shells and the bullets. 
BEFORE YOU DO, EQUIP YOUR SHOTGUN. You will then encounter the evil Laura, 
who is much more of a threat than the monsters themselves. She will lead 
James into the examining room....

She screwed you over. Meet the Hangers.

---------------------------
BOSS FIGHT
---------------------------

Two monsters to deal with. The come in pimped out from the ceiling, 
with suction cupped hands. Run across the room from the hangers, and don't 
go under them, THEY WILL STRANGLE YOU. As long as your using the shotgun 
on the first two, then things should 
go easy enough. On the last one, use the handgun. It should be an easier 
battle, but the bosses so far have been nothing of a challenge.


Now your back on track, you will now be in the garden area of the hospital. 
Now head through the double doors. There should be a save on a wall near 
by. Now head to C2, there is a nurse in hear. Kill or be Killed. (I think 
my kill count is 5 or 6, excluding bosses) Now get the first aid packet 
in here. James will also hear a noise. Now head into C1. WATCH OUT, a nurse 
is so close she could be breathing on James, cept she's dead, and dead 
things don't breath. Kill it. Now search the room for bullets and a drink. 
Now take the elevator up to 2f. Then go to room M4. MORE NURSES. Try 
dodging the nurses by using the strafe, which I only learned later in the 
game. you will find shells and a drink.

Now head to M6.Examine the %^&*ed art and get the dry cell battery and 
Basement Storeroom Key. Read the memo, grabs the bullets and aid kit and  
head to the Day room. James will notice the fridge. Now use the elevator 
to head up to the 3rd floor.

 Now there will be a lot of monster here. Now try going near the 
stairs and examining the statue of the woman. Now head back to the 
room where you left Maria (S3). She will be gone. Now search the room 
for bullets and Ampoule (save this for extreme cases of desperation). 
Now read the note, it has something to do with the statue of the female 
in the hall. Now exit and head for the store room. There will be a few 
nurses in the area, so watch out.
 
In the store room, will be shells, bullets and a kit. Now go down the 
stairs in the area near the store room, there is a save point here. 
Now head down and all the doors except the bottom door are closed. Use 
the key to open the last door.  Now go down the room to the shelf, push 
the shelf and it will expose  a hole. James will try and crawl into the 
shelf, and Maria will be angry at James. She will go on and on an on, so 
just don't pay attention :-) The length of this conversation will also 
determine the ending you get. Now Maria will once again follow you. 
Head down the ladder.

You should now be in the basement. Now search for the blood on the 
floor, examine it and you should find the copper ring. Now get out of 
the hole. Now head to 3f. Make your way to the elevator in the hall. 
Before you go to the elevator, notice the hand, you will need to 
remember this location later  Now head down to 2F. Before you exit 
the elevator, you will get a freaky radio message from the game show 
"trick or treat"- I'm sure you've heard of it, as it is the 1# Silent 
Hill radio show for the last 90 yrs :-P Now listen carefully to the 
three questions. These questions will be important later, brush up on 
Silent Hill History by reading memos and other things you've collected.

Now head to the day room on the 2f. Now try to examine the fridge 
again. Maria will now help you. In the fridge is a lead ring. Now 
use the elevator and go up to 3f. Make your way to the store room 
and there will be a jeweled box there.

OPTIONAL PUZZLE

Trick or treat box.

Warning. You get a question wrong, you lose a lot of life.
Prize: 2 Ampoules , Shotgun Shells

Okay, 

First Question: Select the 3rd button.
Second Question: Select the 1st button.
Third Question: Select the 3rd button.


Now head back to the place with the statue of the woman.  Now put the 
copper and the lead ring in the hand of the statue. The door should be
unlocked. Go down the stairway and head down the path until you reach 
the first pathway, there should be a memo on the ground, read this. You 
will now have to search for a set of keys, now continue down the stairway. 
As you reach the end, something happens, Pyramid Head returns. Quickly 
run the hell away from him, making your way to the elevator, before you 
get speared.

After the whole thing, James will now be on 1f. Once again, Maria and 
James have been separated, making it easier to survive in this game.  
Now head to the directors room. There's a map in here, and the hospital 
lobby key. If you check your map, there will be new areas open up that 
you weren't able to investigate earlier. Leave the hospital, BUT make 
sure to save before leaving the area.


----------------------------
South Vale....after hours.
----------------------------

Now head to Saul street and search for the gates, in the big rig vicinity. 
Enter the gates and James will locate a tunnel. While in the tunnel, 
James will be greeted by under hangers, just walk around them as they are 
no big deal. Now make your way until you reach the exit.
You are in East South Vale once again. Now head Lindsey Street and make 
your way to the house next to the Mexican Restaurant. Read the letter 
and make sure to get the wrench. Go back to Neely's bar and read the 
message to James.

down this path, and you should see a door on the right. Enter it. 
Now head to the room to James' right. There should be a key in

ROACH PUZZLE

This is my most requested puzzle, if people would stop asking about 
it, then I would finally have time to finish this damn faq a 
couple days ago, but nooooooooo, they ask and ask and ask.

Now find the key in the corner of the room. As James picks it up, 
the flashlight goes out. Use the dry cell battery in the inventory, 
and the light works. Guess what happens. I will leave it up to 
you.....

just kidding.

Now find the panel on the wall. Examine it, and two numbers should 
be lighted. THE CODE IS RANDOM, use the two buttons and try to make 
a three button code, for instance 1 and 3 are lighted. try 133, 331, 
313, 113, etc, until the door is unlocked. Exit the room, and try 
the key on the door down the hall. 


----------------------------
Toluca Prison
----------------------------

Your in the food hole, aka the cafeteria.  You will find Eddie. When 
he leaves, search for the drinks, the "tablet of the gluttonous pig" 
and make sure to save. Now exit the room. Make a left, and go up this 
path. Pass the table, and make your way to the second table. Get the 
map. Now head to the door between the are of the 2nd table, and the 
first table. You should be in the bathroom/shower area. Head to the 
shower area and get the "tablet of the seductress". Now exit the room. 

Make your way down to the area of the food hole. make your way

in the cell area. There are monsters in the stalls, how they got 
there, who knows. Now make you way down the hall, avoiding the monsters, 
the 5th stall should be open. go down there and get the bullets, now 
make your way back to the path, and find the 8th stall, find the WAX 
DOLL and then exit the room.

Now make your way north.  A lot of hassle, so use your hgun.  Now make 
your way up, until you find double doors, enter the ones on the west. 
Now head up to the other set of jail cells in the prison. Now make 
your way to the 7th cell and enter it. The Tablet of the Oppressor is 
in here. When James tries to escape, the door gets rusty. DON'T panic, 
just keep trying, after a while, the door should open. Now open your 
map, and located the huge mass on the right of the map. Make your way 
to the door that leads to this area. Now in the center of the yard is 
a large scaffolding. In your inventory, combine the tablets, and then 
use them on the scaffolding. Now return to the entrance and you should 
find a horseshoe. Get this, and now make your way to the top corner of 
the map. Before the dead end are two doors. take the first door. There 
is a first aid kit. NOTICE the shiny thing on the other side of the

Go down the path
Now make your way to the women's restroom. There is a closed stall in 
this restroom, James will knock on it. After this, go to the mens 
restroom and save your game. Enter the door across from the mens room.
There is a demon in here, finish him. Now search the room for a first 
aid kit, Ampoule , and a health drink. There is also a magazine in the 
room, as well as a diary on the shelf.

Behind the office, is a HUNTING RIFFLE!!! BUT USE IT FOR LATER. There 
is also a lot of ammo in this room, which you will need for later. Now 
exit, and head south to the gates. Enter the gates.  Notice the box 
shape on the floor. This is an entrance to something. But how to enter 
it? hmmm. James will become a MacGuyver for a moment and use everyday 
objects to solve a complex and almost life threatening problem. Combine 
the doll, the horseshoe and the lighter in the menu, now use this on the 
entrance and open it up.

Walk down the hall until you reach the double doors. Now make your way 
until you reach the hole. jump.  Now make your way to the door, and guess 
what? another damn hole. Jump. There should be an elevator in the area, 
there should be some items in the elevator, some r and sg shells, hgun 
bullets, a kit. After the long elevator ride, save your game.

----------------------------
Labyrinth
----------------------------
You are now what is known to many as the Labyrinth, a maze of sorts, 
which isn't really a maze at all. 

---------------------------------------------------------
This map lays out the basic foundation of the labyrinth.
http://www.survivalhorror.com/data/silenthill2/labmap.jpg 
---------------------------------------------------------

Okay, here goes, you will notice at the start of this area there will 
be an area blocked by wires, on the other side, there will be a ladder. 
There wont be way to get in there yet, but remember this place in the 
future, as you will need to back track all the way here in the end. Head 
your way east of where you started until you get to a fork in the road, 
turn left on the top fork, and continue until you come to another fork 
with one ladder on each side of the fork. Now take any ladder you choose. 
You should now be in a bigger room (on my map, its sorta circular with 
straight edges) In this room, there are a lot of under hangers, so run,
 even if you get hit, it's better than walking. Now try to find the door 
that leads to the center of the room, enter that room.

You are now in the pyramid head's main lair! If you search this room, 
you will not only get shotgun shells, but the great knife as well! This 
thing is awesome, much better than the stick or steel pipe any day. Use 
it later. Watch out fo enemies that are everywhere, P. Heads, under 
hangers. etc.

Now exit the room. backtrack. Go back to the first fork in the road, and 
take the route you didn't take before (the bottom fork) Then continue on 
this path until you reach the watery tunnel. Then make your way to the 
ladder in this tunnel. When you enter the next room, you will be faced 
with a block, a block of godly faces. Anyways, you need to manipulate 
the boxes in order to get to the next room on your quest. 

---------------------
FACE Cube Puzzle
---------------------  
Okay, here's the deal, you can manipulate the cube by using the 
direction pad or the analog stick. 

Directions:
Cube UP: Press Up
Cube Down: Press Down
Cube Left: Left
Cube Right: Right

Okay, now notice that the starting cube has blue eyes. Now continue to 
move the cube up or down (doesn't matter), until you see the right side 
up cube with the red eyes. From this position, turn the cube left or 
right until the upside the down face is showing, I got the upside down 
face with the green eyes, if details are important to you.

Hard Riddles:
Your pretty much on your own, the movement of this thing is random, just 
use James' sight feature (r1) and the sticks to look for the doors. Then 
move the cube until you can align the doors right. I'm sorry if I can't 
help you anymore on this puzzle, but if your such a game master, then 
you wouldn't be using a walkthrough :-)

Okay, after this puzzle, enter the door into the next room. Guess who's 
in there.....MARIA! what!?! okay, if you played this part when you first 
got the game, you would be as shocked as I was :-) to find Maria in that 
damn jail cell. But now she messes with you, talking like a complete 
psycho! Now she asks you to rescue her. Go back to the cube room, and 
notice the shiny thing in the open breaker box. It is the wire cutters. 

Now Backtrack back to the entrance of this maze. Now, cut the wires on 
that door you couldn't reach. Now descend down the ladder. Now turn the 
corner and enter the first ladder area you see, it should be on the right, 
after you turned that corner. Then now, Go down this path and make a right. 
Then go down and take this ladder. In the next room, circle around until 
you reach another ladder type entrance thing. Take that ladder. Now from 
here go down the path, then make a left, then go straight, make another 
left and you should find another ladder, take it. Now go up this path, 
and make another left. Then make a left into the first intersection you 
see. Go down this path and enter into the next section. There should be 
handgun bullets here. Take those. 

--------------------------------------------
Now if your strapped for bullets, and are crazy (AND LIKE TO DEAL WITH 
P. HEAD), then you can continue to go down(or up) the path, passing the 
first intersection. There are two tunnels you can take, try to avoid the 
one with P. Head. Now make your way to the square room  snatch the h. 
gun bullets, and make your way back to the area with the h.gun bullets 
you found near the door.
--------------------------------------------

If you take the first intersection you see, then you decided to avoid 
unnecessary fighting. Enter the room, and you should find a save. SAVE. 
Okay, continue along the path , and you will here Angela scream! Find 
where the sound is and enter that door. It should be the only room in 
the area anyways. 

DOORMAN BOSS

Strategies: 
Use the shotgun, since rifle ammo is sparse. If your one on one 
with a doorman, then use the steel pipe, but only if you have an 
exceptionally large amount of room. 

Strategies: (nullfire@netzero.net)
This battle can be tough, as this is a very small room and the enemy 
is quite wide. When he gets close he'll bite on your head. As with 
previous bosses, you'll want to keep on the opposite side of the 
room when you're attacking. If you've got hunting rifle ammo, use it. 
About 10-12 shots will kill him. If you can get a little distance 
from the enemy, fire off two shots and wait a second. Two hits will 
knock him down. Allow him to get up then fire two more shots into 
him. Move to the other side of the room, reload and repeat the 
process.

After fighting this thing, Angela will get psycho on it and take it down. 
Cool!Now follow Angela, James will find another room with hanged men in it, 
in another room will be the nooses to those men. 

----------------------------
Puzzle: The Innocent Man
----------------------------

Read the notes on all the faces to determine the innocent man.

In easy mode: The Kidnapper is innocent.
In Normal mode: The Arsonist is the innocent.
In Hard mode: The counterfeiter is innocent.

After you find the innocent, go back to the noose room and determine 
which rope belongs to the innocent man, and release the body. 
Now go back to the room, and find the place where the innocent man 
hanged. Pick up the key of the persecuted. Now go back to the corridor, 
and use the key on the cuff that's block the entrance. After that, 
find the cell gate, search for the valve, and use that to open the 
gate.

Pass the locked gate and enter the door ahead of you. When you 
finally get to Maria, guess what.... yeah, again. Okay after this, 
backtrack to the hall and now go to the last room you yet to discover. 
Before you go in their, make sure to get the first aid in the corner. 
Okay this room has graves in it, NOTICE THE NAMES ON THE GRAVES!?! 
Now in the room there's a save point, SAVE. Pick up the shells, as 
well as an ampoule. Now jump into the hole to the far left. When 
everythings been done, try and equipt a good weapon. your going to 
need it.

CRAZY EDDIE BOSS FIGHT

Hey Eddie, what are you doing with that gun?
Okay, you knew it was going to come down to this, Eddie never 
liked you. You never liked Eddie. Up till now, you have been 
suppressing your anger to sock him in the face with a pipe. Now's 
your chance. After some words of death, it's time to get it on 
and destroy or be destroyed. 

For veterans of Silent Hill, this is the Cybil fight.(tdeah). I, 
Lethal thinks its similar to many of the fights in Metal Gear 
Solid, cuz you use a lot fo the environment to your advantage. 

Strategies: 
for the first time around, keep blasting. Keep your bullets in 
check and just keep blasting. When the dual shock controller 
begins vibrating really violently, that means hit the R3 button, 
which is the right analog stick, and you'll automatically recover 
using a health item. 

For the second form, hide behind the meats, popping out to shoot 
the hell out of the man, and then hiding back again. If your good, 
you can pop out and go up right behind him and use the chainsaw 
or Shotgun and then hide again and he will never get a shot in. 
Another good tactic if your not good at dodging shots is to go 
right up to Eddie, as he will instead try and beat the crap out 
of James, which is a lot easier to deal with. If your able to 
keep a somewhat cool head during this battle, you'll survive, 
but Eddie won't. 

Strategies: (nullfire@netzero.net)

There's no real tactic to this fighting this battle. If you run, 
Fatty will shoot you. Just raise your best weapon (hopefully you've 
got some hunting rifle shells) and keep firing. Heal if you need to 
(you shouldn't have to more than once).
After Fatty runs away, follow him to the next room.

Boss Battle:
Again, you don't need to follow any strategy. Keep firing at him 
until he's dead. It should only take about 10 shots from the hunting 
rifle. You may need to heal once, as he'll get a few shots in 
during reloading.

Strategies (iceheart0@earthlink.net)

Anyway I think I found a good way to deal with Eddie, when I fought 
him I used a ampoule and then Great Knifed his ass!! And he went 
running scared, in the meat locker I hid behind some meat and waited 
for Eddie to come and used a ampoule then Great Knifed him again 
and he went down on his lard ass. Could you try this out and see 
how well it works for you.


----------------------------
Toluca Lake
----------------------------
After the Eddie battle, you finally make your way outside, now its
just you and the open fog once again.  There should be a save point 
on a barrel. 
After you save, go along the dock until you find a row boat, you will 
notice a light of in the distance, this will be your target during 
this part of the game.


Simple Ass Directions for easy and normal
Up- Press Up
Down- Press down
Left- Press Left
Right- Press right

Just continue to move left or right to scan the lake until you see 
bright light. Afterwards, use the d-pad to move up. You really don't 
need my help for this part anyways. Come on, it's rowing a boat.

Hard Ass Directions for Hard
To move: From the center, you have to move both sticks opposite of 
each other. Left going left, right going right. From there, the left 
stick must go counter clock wise, while the right stick goes clock 
wise- at the same time. Continue this rhythm of movement until you 
reach the light.

Left or right: You should have to do this if you positioned yourself 
at the beginning, but you have to stop the movement of one row, or 
slow it down, and speed up the movement of the other row.


Man, this is such a pain, being that you have to stoke each stroke 
by hand. You will need to use both your left and right analog sticks 
to move the boat, THEY MUST BE IN UNISON in order to get anywhere, 
people who have played any N64 game or Mario Party with more than one 
person, your training with the stick will come in use.


After you dock,  and you will see the Lake View Hotel.

----------------------------
Lake View Hotel
----------------------------
Go up to the courtyard before the main entrance and you should find 
the Little Mermaid Music Box near the fountain. Now go inside through 
the double doors. When you enter, you should find the Map of the hotel 
on James' left. If you look at the map, James and Mary's "love nest" 
a.k.a., their "room", should be marked "waiting for you". Now make 
your way to the lake shore restaurant and find the piano and 
investigate it. Laura will appear and a very informative cut scene 
will take place. You will then receive Laura's Letter, written by Mary. 
Now find the table with the plate on it and examine it to get the 
fish key.

Exit the restaurant. If you want more ammo, which is scarce in the 
hotel, make your way west of the restaurant. Head down the hall, 
then make your way into the store room, which is two doors up from 
Café Toluca. It should be in the room to bottom of the map, in the 
store room. There should be riffle shells and gun bullets in here.

Now go back to the middle of the corridor, and take the steps down 
to the basement floor. Head to the Venus Tears bar area and examine 
the elevator in the basement to find the thinner. Now head back to 
the first floor and go to the lobby. There should be a save in that 
area. Now head to the reception area, which should be 
on the right side of the lobby. Read the note on the desk, and take 
the Room 312 Key from one of the mail slots near the desk. 

Head up stairs in the lobby to the second floor and enter the cloak 
room. There should be first aid, shells, and some gun bullets in 
this room. There should also be an important briefcase in the back 
of this room. Get it, and use the fish key to open it up. There 
should be the key to room 204 in here. Now go to room 204, if your 
playing a normal game, I think there will be one or two doormen. 
Time to kill. Now head into room 204 using the key, and search the 
desk, for YET ANOTHER KEY :-( this time, it's the elevator key. 
Before you leave the room, examine the hole in the wall and you 
should now be in room 202. Search the area for a suitcase , this is 
important soon. Now search the bed for photos, if you look, you will 
find a black and white marked up photo. Use the thinner on the photo, 
and it should dissolve the marker. 

Write down the code that you found on the suitcase, as it is random. 
Now go back to that suitcase in the room and sue the code to open 
it up. The Cinderella Music Box is inside. Now if you need to save, 
there is a save room across from the store room on the second floor. 
Save your game, and grab the health drink. Now make your way to the 
elevator on the floor. Before you enter, notice the shelf outside. 
once you get on, the alarm sounds. There should be a note by the 
panel. It says your to heavy..fatty.

Remember the shelf? Oh man, don't PANIC!!!! but you have to put 
everyone of your items into the shelf. Damn, you shoulda went on a 
diet before going to Silent Hill. Anyways, head down the elevator 
and find the another map for the hotel on the bulletin board...this 
time for the workers. It should mark more of the places on the map. 
Now go to the pantry and grab the Snow White Music Box which is on 
the shelf inside. If you can't find it, just continue to examine 
the shelf until you get it. Now head to the office and find the 
safe, and grab the very IMPORTANT STORY ELEMENT...the video tape, 
and of course the can opener.

Now, if you try and use the elevator, it will not work. Therefore, 
you have to use the set of stairs in that area. Head down into the 
basement. Okay, if you have been reading this faq for some time now,
 you should know, I am a supporter of running like a little girl 
when it comes to fighting with sucky weapons. Well, now is one of 
those times, where you gotta run, but you have now weapons at all. 
There are mannequin demons in this area, so the best thing to do is 
zip by them. Now quicky head to the boiler room in the basement area 
and get the boiler room key near the boiler. There should also be a 
first aid kit in this area.

Now make your way to the kitchen. There should be a few health drinks 
in the kitchen, you will need it fi you suck at running away.  On the 
kitchen counter the is a big economy sized can. Use the can opener to 
open it...duh.  There is a light bulb inside?!? just don't ask, and 
now make your way to the Venus tears bar. James, being the blind, ugly, 
man he is, cannot see the key opening for the front door inside the bar. 
Use the lightbulb, on the nearby lamp to make James see better. Now 
unlock the door. Head outside, and make your way to the stairs and go 
up to the second floor. 

Now head back to the shelf with all your crap. Nice to see you once 
again my friends. Now go back to the hotel lobby and go to the big music 
box type thingy in the first floor.   

PUZZLE- Music Boxes

MUSIC BOXES
Cinderella fled at midnight,
Snow White woke from death,
Little Mermaid was mute for a time.

Normal/Easy Left to right: Cinderella, Snow White, Little Mermaid.
Hard: Little Mermaid on the front, Snow White in the east, Cinderella on 
the west. 


After you complete the puzzle, you will get the Hotel Stairway Key. Now 
go up the stairs to the second floor. then make your way to the area by 
the cloak room  and head up the stairs to the 3F gate. Now, use the key 
and unlock the gate. Now once on level 3, head to room 312. Now, notice 
the VCR and TV setup, it's time, it's time to find out what's on that 
tape. After this, Laura will enter the room, and the radio will play 
another messed up message. From room 312, head east and save your game 
on the door of room 313. 

Head down to the reading room on the second floor. There is a pair of 
head phones on the desk!!!!

Okay, whatever you decide to do, it will affect your ending, if you wanna 
take a chance and listen then go ahead, if you decline then go a head. 
If you wanna get a certain ending, my website, has an ending guide to 
help get the ending you want here:

http://www.survivalhorror.com/data/silenthill2/.

From here, the place gets all trans-dimensional! If you take a certain 
room, you will be transported to another area on the floor. Here's a g
uide to those port

207 = 204
202 = 219

219 = 220
220 = 207
212 = 202

Okay, near the guest elevator should be a table with two ampoules. Grab 
those, as you will need them soon.  Now take the elevator to the basement. 
When you reach the basement, Titanic breaks lose and your ass deep in 
water. There is also a dangerous amphibious patient demon here so make 
sure to run to the venus tears bar. There should be FIVE health drinks 
in this bar now, grab those on the shelf behind the bar. Now head to 
the kitchen and grab the shotgun shells on the bench  and the first-aid 
kit near the fridge. Now head to the employee stairs.

Cut scene. Angela. After the cut scene, leave Angela and go back through 
the door you used to enter. MORE TRANS-DIMENSIONAL STUFF. James is now 
in the employee stairs area. Head to the first floor, and everything 
has been burned. Head to the restrooms and grab the ampoules.  There 
should be some rifle shells in this area, I think near the office. 
Now if you check your map, locate the east exit door and make your way 
their. Once you enter the exit go down the corridor until you reach not 
one, but a grid of nine red save objects! SAVE YOUR GAME!

Before you enter the door near the saves, check James' status and ammo 
count, since there will be very little time to think once you get 
through the next TWO consecutive battles.

I used the riffle, it is very popular. Good luck, at this point I had 
like 25 drinks, 12 f aids, about 7 ampoules and a lot of ammo. It should 
be a breeze if you conserved. If not, then GOOD LUCK.

---------------------------------------
PYRAMID HEAD (2nd Encounter 2X love)
---------------------------------------
there 
are now two Pyramid Heads to contend with, each wielding long 
and angry spears. The strategy is basically the same as last time, 
except now they have become wise to the tactics James implies. 
You'll want to alternate the directions of your strafing now, 
as they will eventually learn your pattern, then block you and 
ultimately kabob you. Of course, use the shotgun and rifle. and 
never ever reload using the default reload, always reload via 
the menu screen. 


Strategies: (nullfire@netzero.net)
This should be a very easy battle. This is a large room, so 
just keep your distance. Run to a corner and blast a few rounds 
into the enemy. Run to the opposite corner when they get close. 
You shouldn't take any damage if you're careful. After a fair 
amount of damage they will stop coming after you.


After you beat the two pyramid heads, they impale themselves with 
their spears, head back to the room with the save and make sure to 
save. now go back into the P. Head battle grounds and examine the 
impaled p. heads for two eggs, the rust colored and the red egg. 
Now place these two eggs on the doors you could not open after the 
fight, south (on the map).


Now leave through the lobby door and make your way outside. Where 
there was docks, now there is a long hall of "bad memories". head 
down the corridor, a message will start up, WHAT YOU DO FROM HEAR, 
DECIDES YOUR ENDING. If you decide to listen to the whole thing, 
then it will affect your ending. IF you decide not to listen to 
the whole thing, it will also affect your ending.  Now go down to 
the final door at the end. Go down the stair case, now walk towards 
the figure. One of the four endings will begin to play, afterwards, 
its time to do some damage.


---------------------------------------
FINAL BOSS
---------------------------------------

so as not to spoil the game, here is the strategies for the final 
boss. simple. Strafe when the thing unleashes the cloud of black 
moths upon you, or run away in a circular motion, much like in the 
first game with the lightning. And fire off one or two shots from 
the rifle and repeat. Careful of this boss getting close to you, 
it'll choke you with the long black tail while screaming in your 
face...not a lovely way to go. After pumping it full of enough 
rifle shells, it will drop to the ground screaming, begging for 
a quick death. Give it the executioner's shot. 

Strategies: nullfire@netzero.net
As with all previous bosses, you'll want to keep your distance, 
fire a few shots, and then run to a new spot. This boss has an odd 
attack, however, that will make you move a little differently. She 
will throw out a swarm of butterflies. Try running underneath her 
to get her to throw out the butterflies. Keep running as they chase 
you. Just as they start to dissipate, turn and fire a few shots at 
the enemy. Keep using this tactic and you should be fine. She also 
has a close attack where she grabs you with a tentacle. Don't let 
her get too close to you. After you've shot her a bit she'll fall 
to the floor. The only thing left to do is to walk up and shoot 
her one last time. Enjoy the ending.


YOU DID IT! ENJOY THE ENDING MY FRIEND! GIVE YOURSELF A PAT ON THE BACK,
AND A SMACK ON YOUR ASS.

But there's four more endings to get, hahahaha, muhahahah. cough. Sorry.
Bye for now. I hope you liked the faq. I should update it now and again
with all the other stuff I promised.

                rebirth ending, or all three of the other endings.


There have been a few secret items that have been strewn all over 
Silent Hill the second time you play the game (after beating it once).
People have been asking what these items do, if you collect them all 
and you will be rewarded with a kick ass "rebirth ending".
       
      White Chrism: 
      Description: A vial of white oil.
      Location: Blue Creek Apartments, room 105. On the kitchen 
                counter.

XII. LITTLE THINGS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Is it me, or is does the idea of a red save object remind you of
Sixth Sense? This idea even has more proof when you get to the nine 
saves at the end.

The names of the streets are some of the most famous horror writers. 
We should have a list of those soon. 

If you look in the In the under ground graveyard the 3 graves are 
marked james angela and eddie

XIII. THANKS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks goes out to lethal, "who has a cd out in the orient", or so he
tells the women he hits on. This is my first shot at a faq, although
it's still a collaborative effort, it's still pretty cool.

Thanks for Tyrantdeath for giving me much of the techincal info to
add to this faq. He wrote much of this faq that was intended for my
website so his name should be first, but I wrote the walkthrough so 
i'm first :-)

Thanks for Gamefaqs for having free and available guides for beating
games. Also, I thank gamefaqs.com for posting this faq.

Thanks to konami for putting out another quality game, which will
ultimatly kick my Silent Scope 2/DDR habit.

Thanks to the hard working staff at survivalhorror.com
(Tud, Kris, Sam,Tdeath, Mike, and Kengo and neo) 
for making the site more active and less static. Even though we 
don't get the respect we deserve, we still put together a great 
website.

Thanks to Kingoffighters23@aol.com for the info on the easier way
to pass Pyramid head the first time.

Special Thanks to people who visit our forum and post and make
it fun to update websites.
