- RESIDENT EVIL 4 PROFESSIONAL MODE
If you've played Resident Evil 4 on Professional Mode then you'll likely 
remember how hard the game can get while attempting to beat it on the hardest 
available difficulty.  Professional mode was unlocked after beating Resident 
Evil 4 on normal mode.  The player had to start the game with only default 
weapons and could not carry over any upgrades from the previous game.  The 
enemies were tougher, more aggressive and Leon took more damage from enemies in 
Professional mode.  To make matters worse, the melee vest that Leon could 
obtain was not even available in Professional Mode.

- RESIDENT EVIL 5 PROFESSIONAL MODE
Resident Evil 5's Professional Mode is unlocked by finishing all chapters on 
Verteran difficulty.  Most of the time, a player will go into dying status with 
a single attack in Professional mode and dying status only last for about 3 
seconds, which doesn't give a player much time to resuscitate a fallen partner. 
Luckily, all weapons and items that are gained on previous modes can be used on 
Professional mode by selecting them through the main inventory screen.

Like in Resident Evil 4, normal enemies are once again much more aggressive to 
the point of being complete maniacs in Professional Mode.  Load up a game of 
Chapter 1-1 and try the Public Assembly timed portion with only the default 
handgun to see just how bad the AI Majini can get in Professional.  All fixed 
ammo pickups in environments are gone and all random items from barrels and 
other breakable objects will usually only give a player gold, though the gold 
is worth double the amount that it used to be worth in lower difficulties.  A 
player must bring along ammo and not depend on ammo found in the chapter while 
playing Professional mode in Resident Evil 5.

- RESIDENT EVIL 5 PROFESSIONAL MODE GUIDE
This Professional Mode guide provides the reader with a full walkthrough of 
Resident Evil 5's hardest mode of difficulty.  Sure, I could simply tell you to 
use infinite ammo and bring the infinite rocket launcher with your character 
and basically be done with this guide.  This guide assumes that the reader is 
going through Professional Mode in single player mode with high-powered 
weapons; whether you use infinite ammo or a rocket launcher or not is up to 
you.  I've highlighted a way to bring down each boss with normal weapons and a 
rocket launcher.

This guide provides you with much more than just simple tips of a few 
situations.  Nearly every enemy encounter is highlighted in detail on how to 
handle the fight in Professional mode.  I'm not going to tell you exactly where 
to go all the time in each chapter since this is a Professional mode 
walkthrough and you should know the basics of the game by now.

                            PROFESSION MODE BASICS                       [PB00]
===============================================================================

===============================
How to unlock Professional Mode
===============================

Professional Mode is unlocked after beating all chapter on Veteran difficulty.

A player can also unlock Professional mode by joining or being invited to a 
Professional mode chapter in co-op play.  If the player finishes that chapter, 
then Professional mode will be unlocked on the joining player's main save file.

=============================================
What is Gained From Beating Professional Mode
=============================================

The following trophy/achievement is the only unlockable that can be obtained 
from finishing Professional mode:

--> War Hero

Trophy type: Gold
Gamerscore Amount: 70
Description: Complete all chapters on Professional.

======================
The Basics of Pro mode
======================

The following is a list of differences that a player will find in Professional 
mode when compared to Amateur, Normal and Veteran mode:

(*) Fixed ammo (or explosive) pickups are no longer available throughout the 
    chapter areas.
(*) Tomato and melon breakable objects contain no items.
(*) All fixed healing items still remain in place and they are listed in 
    walkthrough below.
(*) All gold pickups are worth double the amount.  Even 3,000 gold pickups are 
    now worth 6,000.
(*) Just about every enemy hit will send a character into dying status.
(*) Dying status last a sum total of 3 seconds.
(*) Enemies are now INCREDIBLY aggressive.
(*) Enemies now target the player instead of the AI partner far more than in 
    other modes.
(*) Enemies now rise faster once knocked down.

======================
Professional Mode Tips
======================

- HAVE A BUNCH OF AMMO IN YOUR MAIN INVENTORY
Be sure to have a big supply of ammo for each gun.  You'll need a bunch of 
rifle ammo for the later chapters.  The rifle is also one of the better weapons 
to give to the AI partner as the chapters progress.

- ENEMIES TARGET THE PLAYER
On Pro mode, a player doesn't really have to worry about the AI partner that 
much.  The enemies are out to target the player more than the partner this 
time.  The AI partner will mainly get hit from Majini that accidentally hit 
that character when trying to hit the player.

- INVINCIBILITY ANIMATIONS
Use invincibility frames to your advantage.  Pick up a useless item on purpose 
to avoid getting hit.  This is a VERY important factor in Pro mode, especially 
in the Public Assembly.

- RELOAD THROUGH THE INVENTORY MENU
If you choose to play without infinite ammo, then reload through the inventory 
menu often.  Open the inventory menu and combine the ammo with the gun.  Try to 
reload during a melee attack or any other animation such as climbing or ladder 
or even a shotgun blast if you're quick enough.

- RESUSCITATION > ITEM HEALING DURING DYING STATUS
A Resuscitation is much quicker than an item heal when a character is in dying 
status.  Healing with an item is very risky in Pro mode if the characters are 
not side by side once one player gets hit.

- THE AI PARTNER SHOULD NOT STOCK HEALING ITEMS
Since the enemies will mainly target the player, the main player should store 
all the healing items so that the AI partner will quickly resuscitate when the 
player is hit instead of using a healing item.  Heal afterward!  If the AI 
partner picks up an herb, request it from that character.  Immediate 
Resuscitation IS that important in Pro mode.

- HEALING WITH EGGS
Instead of brining along healing items such as green herbs or first aid sprays, 
a player can bring along several eggs.  Eggs don't take up as much space if 
only one type is brought along since one type is grouped into a single 
inventory slot and the egg will not be used during a resusciation like an herb 
and a first aid spray will be.

- MAKE USE OF COVER MODE
Keep the AI partner in Cover mode ("Come on), so that character will stick by 
the main player.

- THE BULLETPROOF VEST CAN HELP FOR BULLETS AND ARROWS
Arrows will only take half life when a character is hit with an arrow while 
wearing a bullet proof vest as opposed to instant dying status.  Bullets from 
machine guns will not always take a character down to near dying status per 
bullet when the bullet proof vest is worn on stages with Base Majini with 
machine guns.

- THE MELEE VEST CAN HELP FOR SOME MELEE ATTACKS
Not all melee attacks will be fatal while the melee vest is worn by a 
character.  The attacks will sometimes take off around 75% of a character's 
health instead of the full 100%.  This will differ among attacks however.  Some 
melee attacks will still send a player into immediate dying status regardless 
of whether the melee vest is worn or not.  Really, the Bulletproof vest is more 
useful, but the melee vest can help just a bit.

- TOMATOES AND MELONS HOLD NO ITEMS
Don't bother breaking stacks of tomatoes or melons since they never hold items 
in Pro mode.

- FLASH ROUNDS ARE YOUR FRIEND
A grenade launcher with flash rounds is a good way to stun any Majini that have 
a crossbow or any Majini that will try to run from your characters.  Flash 
rounds also cause Majini with cocktails to drop their cocktails while stunned 
and burn themselves and any other Majini near them.

- USE FLASH EXPLOSIONS ON PARASITIC ENEMIES
Either flash rounds or flash grenades should be used to instantly kill 
parasitic enemies such as Cephalos or Duvalias.  They can also be used against 
Bui kichwa, Adjules that showcase their plagas insides, and Kipepeos.

- CANCEL A PARASITIC ENEMY APPEARANCE WHEN POSSIBLE
An instant kill melee from behind or a tag team melee will instantly cancel any 
scripted Cephalo or Duvalia transformation.

- NITROGEN ROUNDS + MACHINE GUN = DEAD LICKERS
Carry nitrogen rounds and a machine gun into a chapter where Lickers are 
present.  Fire a nitrogen round directly into the middle of a group of Lickers 
then spray their frozen bodies with machine gun fire to instantly shatter them.

- NITROGEN ROUNDS CAN FREEZE ARMORED MAJINI, EVEN THOSE WITH A METAL SHIELD
If a heavily armored Majini is in an area, a player can use a magnum to shoot 
through the Majini's armor or the player can fire a nitrogen round then shatter 
the Majini.  One thing that a magnum cannot do is shoot through a metal shield 
however, but a nitrogen round can freeze a Majini regardless of whether it 
holds a metal shield or not.  The Majini will actually drop the metal shield 
once frozen.

================================
Weapon Uses in Professional Mode
================================

M92F handgun
------------

When fully powered, this weapon's critical rate will cause it to instantly pop 
a Majini's head through a critical shot for the majority of headshots.  Aim at 
a Majini's head and fire and you'll most likely get a critical headshot.  The 
critical headshot can ruin melee attempts when up against a crowd (using the 
melee for invincibility) so it's not always good to aim for the head however.  
The M92F also carries an extreme capacity of 100 bullets, so really a player 
doesn't need to bring any extra handgun bullets or worry much about reloading 
while using this handgun.

P9 handgun
----------

This weapon is the only handgun with a piercing propertly, which is extremely 
useful against Wetland Majini that carry shields.  It can also be used to shoot 
through multiple enemies that stand in a crowd.

SIG P226 handgun
----------------

The P226 handgun is the most powerful handgun overall, but it has not special 
properties that make it useful outside of damage.  If you're just going for 
sheer damage a target then this if your best bet when it comes to a handgun.

Ithaca shotgun
--------------

The Ithaca shotgun has the highest capacity and critical rate out of any of the 
shotguns once it is fully upgraded.  It's critical rate can give the user more 
of a chance at head pops when aimed at a Majini's head when compared to other 
shotguns.  It might even blow off multiple heads when aimed at a crowd.

M37 shotgun
-----------

The M37 shotgun is the most powerful shotgun when fully upgraded, but it lacks 
any special properties.  It can still achieve critical headshots though not as 
much as the Ithaca shotgun.  This can be a good weapon to damage bosses with, 
but the Hydra is still more damaging altogether.

Jail Breaker shotgun
--------------------

The Jail Breaker is the least damaging of all the shotgun, but it's tight 
spread allows it to push back crowds or distant enemies rather easily.  You 
don't really want to attack that much with this weapon, you mainly just want to 
blast the enemy out of your way then run by it.

Hydra shotgun
-------------

It is said to only have a firepower of 500, but this shotgun can easily be one 
of the most powerful weapons to have when up against a boss or any type of 
enemy.  It's tight spread makes it damage for more than 500 when it is aimed at 
a single target from close range.  The only real flaw is that a player must get 
in close range for maximum damage and the reload time can be very lengthy, so 
inventory reloading it needed while using this weapon.

VZ61 machine gun
----------------

The VZ61 can ground enemies rather easily when aimed at their legs and it is 
one of the more accurate machine guns.  It has the highest critical rate out of 
any of the machine guns, so a player can aim for the heads of a crowd of 
enemies and most likely get a few critical shots while firing.  The VZ61 can 
also carry the most bullets at a time without the need to reload that often.

H&K MP5 machine gun
-------------------

This is an all around good machine gun to have with your character.  It's 
basically just as accurate as the VZ61 and it is the only machine gun that can 
pierce through Wetland Majini shields or multiple enemies.

SIG 556 machine gun
-------------------

The SIG 556 has more recoil than the other two machine guns listed above, but 
it has an overall good damage rate, which is higher than the VZ61 and MP5.

AK-47 machine gun
-----------------

The AK is the most damaging machine gun but it's recoil causes it to be the 
mosts inaccurate in the machine gun category.  If you're going for sheer damage 
then this machine gun will be your best bet.  The AK can be good for boss 
enemies when a player wants to spam gunfire to a single portion.  It also 
carries the least amount of ammo at a time and has a lengthy reload time.

S75 rifle
---------

The S75 rifle is the most damaging rifle and it can carry a total of 50 bullets 
when fully maxed out.  This is a good sniping rifle to have with your character 
in stages where a rifle is needed when a player doesn't want to worry about 
bringing extra ammo.  The bullet ejection per shot can leave a character open 
to attack however unlike the other rifles.

Dragunov rifle
--------------

The Dragunov rifle's autofire allows a player to spam gunfire on a single 
target which can make it useful for boss fights.  The rifle is slightly less 
accurate when compared to the S75 and PSG-1 thanks to the constant movement 
while aiming through it's scope.

PSG-1 rifle
-----------

The PSG-1 rifle is autofire rifle like the Dragunov, but it it is slightly more 
accurate.  Once full upgraded, it's zoom will allow a player to hit targets 
from an extreme distance which can make it really useful for chapters where 
enemies lie in wait up ahead.  The only real flaw is that it can't carry as 
much ammo as the Dragunov.

S&W M29 magnum
--------------

This magnum takes a some dencent damage for a magnum, but most importantly it 
can fire multiple shots at a quick rate.  Since it can fire faster, this 
quality actually makes it really more useful than the M500 magnum since the 
M500 magnum has such a heavy recoil per shot fired - this thought is mainly up 
to the player to decide though.  This is an extremely good weapon to use 
against bosses or any Majini with armor.  All magnums have piercing, so the 
shot will always go right through heavy armor but not iron shields.

L. Hawk magnum
--------------

The L. Hawk has a lower damage rate when compared to the M29 magnum and it 
(arguably) has a slightly lower rate of fire per shot.  The reload is very 
quick, much like reloading a handgun.  This magnum has the highest piercing, 
but the piercing only helpt it out for going through more enemies at once since 
it still cannot penetrate iron shields.

S&W M500 magnum
---------------

This magnum can be a really good boss killer, but the heavy recoil per shot can 
make the M29 magnum a more favorable choice with its higher rate of fire.  
Spamming a target with multiple shots from the M29 magnum will likely kill it 
faster than the M500 magnum, but the M500 magnum delivers such an incredibly 
heavy blow with a single shot.  It's arguable which one is better and it's 
really best for the player to decide.

Grenade Launcher
----------------

-- Explosive Rounds

Explosive rounds can be good for knocking down an entire crowd of Majini for 
extreme damage.  One explosive round may not always kill off every Majini in a 
crowd, but it certainly scatter them and damages them well in the process.

-- Acid Rounds

Acid rounds are really best used against Majini groups in Professional.  It 
will cause a group to waver and fall from the acid damage.  You don't want to 
use these on Licker in Professional mode since Lickers are now powerful enough 
to withstand their usual weakness in acid rounds while in Professional mode.

Acid rounds are also highly effective against Reaper enemies.  Two shots to a 
Reaper will make it show it's chest weak point to where a player can easily 
finish it off with a high powered shot directly to the weak point.

-- Flame Rounds

Flame Rounds can be used to instantly ground a group of Majini much like an 
incdeniary grenade.  This can easily set them up for Chris' stomp.  They fall 
with their heads facing the player, so a Chris player can get a few head crush 
stomps after the Majini are grounded.

-- Flash Rounds

Flash rounds are extremely useful for Professional mode.  They can instantly 
kill off a parasitic enemy and they can be used to simply blind a Majini before 
it has the chance to attack.  Flash rounds can be really useful against enemies 
with projectile weapons to keep them from firing for a short while as your 
character runs up to them.

These are also highly effective against Reaper enemies.  Two shots to a Reaper 
will make it show it's chest weak point to where a player can easily finish it 
off with a high powered shot directly to the weak point.

-- Electric Rounds

Electric rounds are a good substitue for flash rounds.  They can severly weaken 
a parasitic enemy with one shot and finish it off most of the time with 2-3 
shots.  These are also effective against Reapers.  Shoot a Reaper once with an 
electir round then aim for its should weak point when it kneels over and shoot 
it directly in that shoulder weak point to make it reveal its chest weak point. 
Unlike a flash round or acide, the second shot MUST hit its shoulder weak point 
directly to have effect.

-- Nitrogen Rounds

Nitrogen rounds are highly useful against Lickers.  Simply shoot one toward a 
Licker crowd then use a machine gun to shatter their frozen bodies.  This 
grenade type is also very useful against heavily armored Majini and especially 
Majini with iron shields.  The shot will freeze any Majini type and allow the 
player to shatter the frozen Majini with a melee attack command or a gunshot 
regardless of what type of armor or object that it holds.

Rocket Launcher
---------------

Do I even need to go into detail here?  Most of the time a player can aim at an 
enemy and shoot and the target will instantly die.  Most bosses will fall to 
the weapon within one hit.  Sometimes a bosses weak point must be exposed and 
sometimes a rocket launcher cannot be used against a boss.  There are a few 
bosses that require multiple rockets as well.

                        PROFESSION MODE WALKTHROUGH                      [PM00]
===============================================================================

Each chapter has a list of weapons and items that a player may want to bring 
along to make the chapter a bit easier.  It's good to always bring along the 
melee vest and bulletproof vest, but I'll always give a mention of when to 
bring them if they really help out a bunch for the chapter.  Usually the 
bulletproof vest will help out the most, mainly for Majini with crossbows and 
Majini with machine guns.

All definite healing items that can be found in the environment are listed 
throughout the guide.  Besides weapons hidden in metal cases, healing items are 
the only definite item pickups in Professional mode.

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ Hydra shotgun
_ M93R handgun
_ H&K MP5 machine gun
_ First Aid Sprays

AI Partner:

_ H&K PSG-1 rifle
_ Jail Breaker shotgun

===================
Civilian Checkpoint
===================

- Simply walk through the area and reach Reynard at the Corner Pyamy Butchery 
in the far northwest.  If you really need guidance with this part, then... I 
don't know... there is no hope left for you, my friend.  None, I'm afraid.  
Poor performance indeed, dear reader.

===================
Back Alley (Area 1)
===================

- Leave the handguns when the metal case is in front of the characters and 
simply equip one of the weapons from your current inventory.  Both characters 
must equip a weapon to trigger the cutscene in order to advance ahead.

- All breakable objects in the area will either contain double the gold that 
they usually carry or some random item.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - In the room with the animal carcass lying on the table, break 
    the wooden crate lying on the shelf in the back of the room.
[ ] Green Herb - Lying on the shelf to the right before exiting the room with 
    the animal carcass via the exit door around the corner.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

===================
Back Alley (Area 2)
===================

- Quickly take out the knife after the cutscene with the first Majini then 
slash him as he tries to rush your main character.  Finish him off with a 
ground stomp or any other weapon.

- In the alley where several Majini, perform a quick turn then run all the way 
toward the open door past the chicken pen.

- If you choose to fight the Majini in the alley, then jump behind the railing 
of the chicken pen near the open door and the Majini will have to climb over 
the railing, which will limit their highly aggressive behavior.  Hydra shots 
mixed with an occasional grenade toss work rather well when they group 
together.  M93R shots as they move down the alley south work good for long 
range gunfire.

If you look to the left while in the chicken pen then the Majini can be blasted 
as they appear.  It might pay you to toss a flash grenade into the chicken pen 
before stepping inside since the chickens will attack.  They won't send a 
player into dying status but their attacks are annoying while trying to aim.  
The AI partner will stand near the door.  Even if a player issues the "Come on" 
command, she will return to the door eventually.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - Lying on the shelf off to the left as a character moves down the 
    stairs of the nearby building after exiting the alley with the Majini 
    horde.
[ ] Green Herb - After exiting the tunnel by climbing the ladder, this will be 
    on the table near the door.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

===============
Public Assembly
===============

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - On the table off to the right before entering the building 
    down the path.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- A player can stand near the doorway and shoot the breakable objects inside 
the room ahead before triggering the cutscene.

--> PUBLIC ASSEMBLY TIMED PORTION

.----------------------------------- TIP -------------------------------------.
| If at any time you have problems with this Public Assembly portion, bring   |
| along a grenade launcher with flash rounds and that will help greatly.      |
| Shoot a flash round into a group of Majini to blind them and stop all of    |

'-----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

If you choose to stay in the building:

A player can equip the Hydra shotgun then stand near window and blast the 
Majini back over the fence as they climb it.  If you choose to stay inside then 
block the entry ways and blast the Majini while standing near the window.  The 
bookcases can be pushed only halfway so that players can shoot the Majini 
through the open spaces along the sides of the bookcases.  Be sure to use 
handgun or file for precise aiming so that the bookcases are not destroy as 
fast.

Once the Majini start to break through the barricades, get behind the fenced 
portion of the inside of the building.  This way the Majini will hop over it to 
get to your character.  Try to keep the AI behind this portion.  Remember that 
some Majini will drop off the hill in the back (west) portion of the house from 
where you entered, so be sure to turn toward that side and defeat them quickly. 
This really works better in co-op play.

If the above method doesn't work out for your characters, toss a hand grenade 
toward the cracked wall of the room then move through the opening when it 
breaks so that the characters can make a quick escape while the Majini are 
dying or staggering from the grenade blast.

If you choose to go outside the building:

Don't worry about blocking anything. Run toward the window that faces the gate 
outside and equip a hand grenade then toss it out the building as the first 
wave of Majini start to climb over it.  The explosion will bust open the 
cracked portion of the wall which will give the characters an easy way out of 
the building.

In single player, stand near the west portion of the of the wall outside of the 
building.  Stand with your back to the wall and take out the Hydra shotgun then 
shoot any Majini that get close to the characters.  This can also work well for 
co-op mode as well.

In co-op mode, players can also take advantage of knowing where the enemies 
spawn as shown below:

                             SP
                           .-------------.
                           I             | SP
                  Gate --> I        _____|
                           I       |
                           I       | Building
                           |       |
                           |       |         .------------------------.
                           |       |         | SP = Enemy Spawn Point |
                           |_______|         '------------------------'

Each player can stand near one of the enemy spawn points (fences) from the 
beginning then blast the Majini back over the fences as they climb the two 
fences labeled above.  The only thing that can go wrong here is that a Majini 
climbs over the gate and attacks a player from behind, so both players will 
have to watch the gate every now and then while doing so.

--> AFTER CHRIS CONTACTS KIRKS

After the Majini break through the roof of the building they will enter the 
area from the roof of the building and the portion of the area behind the 
building to the east (the hill that the characters hopped down), so a player 
needs to stand in the west portion of the walled area behind the gate.

Wait for the Executioner to break the gate.  A player can actually stand right 
by the gate and not get hit with his axe swing.  The axe swing will defeat any 
Majini that are in the way.  Right when he breaks the gate, run to the north 
then make an immediate left and hop behind the small wooden fence to the west. 
Turn to the left again and climb the ladder.  Players can climb the other 
ladder and step onto the top roof.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - On the counter in the west building beside the broken down 
    bus.
[ ] Green Herb - In a corner on the rooftop of the shack by the broken down 
    bus.  You'll need to climb the ladder on the south side of the middle west 
    building then hop over to this.
[ ] Green Herb - On a table on the second floor of the starting building.  
    Climb the ladder on the west side just after moving past the broken gate.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The roof will keep the characters safe from the majority of the Majini waves.  
They will either climb the ladder that the characters climbed to get up here or 
they will climb the rooftop portion and sign on the north side of the building. 
Stand on the west side of the building and keep a gun aimed ahead then fire at 
any Majini that try to move up the ladder or climb the sign.  Maintain this 
position until the timer on the Public Assembly expires.

--> THE EXECUTIONER BOSS

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

To kill him extremely quickly without any hassle, the rocket launcher can be 
used, but BE FOREWARNED that he is COMPLETELY invincible until after the broken 
gate is on the ground.  Basically if you shoot him with the rocket launcher 
while he is still behind the gate or the second that he breaks it then he will 
only crouch over and your character will have just wasted the rocket!

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Arm the Hydra shotgun or the S&W M500 magnum and run through the town then only 
turn and fight him when a good majority of the area around your character can 
be seen.  You DO NOT want Majini to surround your character.  I find it best to 
lead him on top of the Executioner platform so he can be blasted while he moves 
up the ramps.  The surrounding Majini must climb the platforms to reach the 
characters as well.  Fighting him out the open isn't really that bad however 
since a fully-powered Hydra can take him down within just a few shots and a 
fully-powered S&W M500 magnum can take him down even quicker.

===============
Public Assembly
===============

- The only items that are here are in the barrels in the north shack and the 
one behind the fence in the waterway.

==============
Urban District
==============

--> THE URBAN AREA

- The female Majini in the alleyway will only attack once approached or once a 
laser pointer hits her.  Be cautious about moving too quickly into the alleyway 
ahead since Majini will attack from off to the left.  The Majini behind the 
right fence can be avoided by simply staying away from him.

- It's really up to the player to grab the Old Building Key or not.  The Ithaca 
shotgun is not really needed but there is a breakable crate in the building 
with it.  Three Majini will attack from the south after Sheva retrieves the 
key.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] First Aid Spray - On top of a metal freezer on the second floor of the 
building with the chest containing the Antique Clock.  The unlocked door to the 
building is found shortly after the Majini in the stand breaks down the boxes 
(below the stairs).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- When the battle with Allyson begins, shoot her in a leg with a handgun or 
machine gun then run behind her and perform an instant kill melee attack so she 
won't spawn a Cephalo.  A player can also perform a tag team melee to her to 
stop her from becoming one as well.  She is more aggressive at the start of the 
battle, so she might grab your character. Don't allow the partner to knock her 
off (don't press the assist button) and toss her off normally by struggling 
then quickly shoot her in a leg then run behind her and kill her with an 
instant kill melee; this is your best chance to get her to stand still.

- More Majini will enter the room after or during the Allyson battle, so be 
sure to watch the side doors carefully and knock them back with the Hydra 
shotgun.  One Majini stands on the roof outside the building to the south and 
he will only attack if a character steps out onto the walkway through the south 
door or exits the building through the east side.  A player can easily look 
through the barred window on the south side and get a headshot on him with a 
rifle.

- When the battle music starts after walking down the stairs to the building, 
run back up the stairs then arm a rifle and face south and then shoot the 
Majini that appear in the group one by one from your safe spot above the 
stairs.  This way, they can't get in the back of the characters.

==================
Abandoned Building
==================

- This area has no enemies.  Well, unless you count the crows that fly 
overhead.

================
Furnace Facility
================

--> UROBOROS BOSS

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Keep in mind that any gun blasts that make contact with an arm while the 
Uroboros is in the outside hallway will damage it.  The damage will not be 
shown by having an arm fall off but it all adds up to the impending fight in 
the furnace room.

Run all the way back to the furnace room and knock over the barrel on the north 
side immediately before the cutscene even plays when it enters the room.  The 
moment after the cutscene plays, run over to the controls for the furnace and 
command the AI partner to control them.  Lead Uroboros into the furnace then 
quickly shoot it and run outside then flip the switch to burn it for major 
damage.  If you have a fully powered Hydra shotgun, pick one side of the 
furnace then run against the door so that your character enters as soon as the 
doors open then run up and blast it while it is stunned from the furnace 
flames.  Keep blasting it in the arms as it reforms and it should fall before 
it attacks.  Pick up the gold ring after it falls.

If you don't have the Hydra shotgun at full power, knock over the other 
canister while it burns in the furnace to save yourself the time of having to 
do it while it is out in the open.

Now, you need to decide whether you want to kill it normally or burn it again 
in the furnace.  If it burns in the furnace again, it will die.  Either way, 
push over the other explosive canister (if it isn't already over) and allow it 
to pick it up.  Either lead it back into the furnace or shoot it while on the 
outside to set off the explosion then run up and blast it while tries to 
recover.  It's really risky to have the AI help out in closing the furnace door 
since Uroboros has a tendency to target the AI partner while it stands in 
place, so do it yourself.

NOTE: If the Uroboros ever reforms early while the furnace is closing, stand by 
one of the closing doors and shoot it in the arms in an attempt to make it fall 
again.  Try you best to keep it in the furnace while the furnace closes.  Most 
of the time, it cannot pass up under the furnace doors as they close, but a 
character can still shoot it while it is on the other side for extra damage if 
nothing else.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Fire a rocket at the Uroboros while it is in the hall.  Simply aim at it then 
shoot it to kill it.

==========
The Bridge
==========

--> METAL CONTAINER AREA

- When the characters arrive at the first C4 tripwire, aim directly up toward 
the top metal container to the left and quickly shoot the Majini with the 
crossbow and he will likely fall and land on the C4 tripwire.  Use a handgun or 
the MP5.

- While rounding the corner after the first C4 tripwire, defeat the first 
Majini without disturbing the one with the crossbow in the back.  The Majini 
with the crossbow will run toward the ladder of the crate in the back when a 
character gets near him or when he is aimed at with the laser point.  Arm the 
grenade launcher with flash rounds then shoot a flash round toward the metal 
container near him.  Run toward him and hit him with a melee or simply shoot 
him then shoot the other Majini to the right.  A handgun or machine gun will 
work fine.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Lying in an open metal container across from the ladder that 
the first crossbow Majini tries to run toward.
[ ] First Aid Spray - Walk around the side of the metal container before 
passing by the second C4 tripwire then break the barrel inside to find this 
item.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- When the first Adjule appears past the second C4 tripwire, toss a hand 
grenade at him before he reveals his plagas to finish him off or fire a flash 
round at him after he reveals his plagas.  A hand grenade can be tossed toward 
the other Adjules but be sure to take note of the Majini with the crossbow on 
top of the crate to the east.  It might pay you to step back behind the south 
crate while fighting the Adjules to avoid his crossbow bolts.  Use the Hydra 
shotgun to easily dispose of the Adjules if a hand grenade is not used, but be 
sure to shoot them before they reach the characters since they are quite quick. 
Step out from behind the crate and shoot the crossbow Majini afterwards.

- After dropping from the open metal container, allow the enemies from the open 
area ahead to all step behind the narrow space between the containers.  This 
will limit the amount of enemies that the player has to fight at one time.  
Step forward if they stop coming to lure more toward your position.  There are 
three Adjules total and one Big Man Majini then a few normal Majini.

In order to safely fight the crossbow Majini and Majini with cocktails, step 
out then shoot a flash grenade toward them then quickly defeat one of them with 
gunshots from a machine gun or hand gun then step behind a metal container 
further ahead.  Quickly step out and shoot the remainder of them before they 
can fire.  Sometimes the crossbow Majini that isn't on a metal container will 
automatically come toward the characters while they are behind the first few 
metal containers.

--> THE BRIDGE AREA

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - Break the right crate lying on the bags in front of the 
dumpsters before hopping across the gap in the bridge.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- It might pay you to issue the "Come on" command a few times just before 
hitting the explosive barrel to stop the truck since the AI partner sometimes 
like to shoot the explosive barrels in the distance on Pro mode.  Shoot the 
explosive barrels on the other side of the bridge to take down the majority of 
the Majini after stopping the truck on the bridge.  Use the PSG-1 rifle to take 
down the remainder of Majini in the distance.  Always shoot the crossbow Majini 
first.

- Before stepping into the sewer tunnel, have a hand grenade ready then toss it 
right when the first Adjule appears to take down all three at one time.  This 
can be done for the second group at the end of the tunnel but there are only 
two of them, so the Hydra shotgun will work fine in this case.

========
The Port
========

- In the waterway where the Kipepeos spawn, it's really best to shoot the 
Kipepeos with the MP5 or a handgun as they bust out of the Majini bodies.  A 
flash round will kill them all at once, but its hard to get all of them in the 
area at one time without getting hit.  The lock can be shot from far away to 
make the back Majini get up early but some of the Kipepeo will not appear until 
the characters get close to the Majini bodies.  It's possible to shoot off the 
lock and run but this is really more trouble than it is worth most of the time.

--> THE MARKETPLACE

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Near the boat rack beside the building as the characters step 
off the stairs that they take up shortly after exiting the sewer tunnel.
[ ] Green Herb - Inside the nearby building that is next to the green herb 
pickup above.
[ ] Red Herb - Lying on the wooden table to the right of the door with the 
padlock in the marketplace.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Don't break the lock on the door at the marketplace!  Run in the back of the 
building then jump through the window.  Shoot down the port key and grab it 
then stand at the window and shoot the Majini as they try to move through the 
window.  The AI partner has a bad temptation to hop through the window if your 
character tries to slash at the Majini, so shoot them from a distance instead 
and issue the "Come on" command to call the partner back if that character hops 
through the window or attempts it.  A Majini with a crossbow might hang around 
the front portion of the building after the others have been defeated, so be 
cautious when stepping back around the building.  He sometimes stays on the 
awning of the stand along the north portion of the area.

- After stepping off the north end of the boat, onto the dock, arm the PSG-1 
rifle then look toward the east.  Shoot the Majini as they move toward the 
dock.  Make the three bow gun Majini (one is on the back building walkway) the 
main priority then shoot the Big Man Majini as he runs toward the port.  The 
rest of them can be taken down with any other weapon.  A Majini with cocktails 
is on the first building to the right but he will not step into view until the 
characters climb up to the area above the dock.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Climb the wooden ladder of the first building to the right 
after moving past the docks and this will be lying beside a tire on the 
northeast side.
[ ] Green Herb - On a table, below the high walkway of the building to the left 
after hopping over the barricade.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- When the group of Majini run out of the building toward the end of the port 
area, simply rush at them and blast them with the Hydra shotgun.  This will 
take care of the bow gun Majini among them while the shots tear through the 
crowd as well.

===========
Shanty Town
===========

- Run to the north and knife slash the Majini from the safety of the other side 
of the window.  If the AI partner hops through the window then begin to shoot 
them.  You can also simply jump through the window before the Majini inside 
breaks it to knock him down then perform a ground melee on him, but the other 
two will be right up in your face afterwards.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Across from the back door of the Slaughterhouse.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- The two Kipepeos can be taken down with a flash round or flash grenade, but 
they start rather far away, so just use the MP5 or a handgun to finish them off 
as they fly toward the characters.  The rifle can be used as well since they 
are at a distance.

- DON'T use the partner action command to boost Sheva to the roof.  Both 
characters should stay together!  Move around the side and quickly shoot the 
Majini with the cocktails when he appears on the ledge above then blast the 
Kipepeo that spawns from him with the MP5 or a handgun.  The characters will 
have to move around the side of the dirt hill to make the other Majini bust 
through the door above.  Step back behind the dirt hill to avoid the bolts from 
the crossbow Majini and use the Hydra shotgun on the group of Majini that rush 
down the stairs.  Finish off all other Majini then quickly step below the 
stairs and shoot the Majini with the crossbow.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - On the counter near the portion of the building that is near the 
stairs on the first floor.  This is in the area where a Majini hides below the 
staircase and another Majini is found on the staircase further ahead.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- After defeating the Majini on the stairs, move up the stairs but quickly move 
back down once the two Majini at the top appear.  Let them come toward the 
characters then shoot them from below the stairs.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - On the third floor of the building, right before getting to 
the area where the partner assist action can be used to toss Sheva over to the 
BG Production building.  This is around the side railing of the stairs across 
from some shelves.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- There are two ways to get past the locked door on the first floor of the 
second building that the character arrive at.

1) Fire an electric round at the extreme bottom portion of the locked door.  
Aim toward the door so that the grenade launcher laser is pointed toward the 
center of the very bottom portion of the double doors then fire the electric 
round.  The electric round will break the padlock on the other side of the 
door.  Simply kick through the door after firing the electric round to avoid 
the sniper part and the upper floor Majini.  Sometimes this takes a few tries. 
Listen for some battle music for confirmation that the lock was broken.

2) Perform the grenade exploit, by bouncing a hand grenade off the BG 
Production building next door:  Stand on the second floor of the outside 
walkway then move over to the side with the yellow "Animal Health" sign.  
Adjust your aim to hit the sign while the hand grenade is equipped and the hand 
grenade will bounce off the sign and land in front of the locked door below; 
the explosion will destroy the padlock on the door below.

- If you choose to go through the sniper portion then make sure that Chris has 
the PSG-1 rifle.  When the Majini appear on the other side prepare to shoot the 
red barrel as they aggressively race toward Sheva's side.  Most of the time, 
she will stand away from the red barrel.  The Majini at this part seem to focus 
on trying to reach the player.  The ones with the crossbows will literally 
shoot at Chris from the area below the building, so be sure to survey the area 
while playing with Chris and shoot them when they appear below.

- Shoot the explosive barrels to take down a good chunk of the Majini outside 
the building.  Don't save them for the Chainsaw Majini!  We have something much 
more devilish planned for him.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
Green Herb - Lying below the transformer at the bottom of the stairs before the 
Chainsaw Majini fight
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--> CHAINSAW MAJINI BOSS

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHE METHOD:

Target his head with the Hydra shotgun and shoot to stun him then run directly 
behind him at the beginning of the battle, so that the characters are at the 
top of the stairs.  Blast him from behind and try to kill him before he 
recovers.  If he doesn't fall then blast him in the head again.  Once he 
"dies", shoot the Majini below the stairs.

Whenever a character picks up the Guard's Key, the Chainsaw Majini will rise 
and go berserk once fully risen.  But my reader has the cure for this sudden 
change in attitude.  Aim at any portion of the Chainsaw Majini's body while he 
gets up and shoot him while he rises.  The moment the boss music stops, you 
have killed him.  It only takes two Hydra shots with a fully powered Hydra.  Be 
sure to taunt him for me while he rises in vain after the boss music stops.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Shoot him with the rocket launcher when he first appears then shoot him with 
another rocket launcher when he goes into berserk status, or simply run from 
him.

Train Station

--> THE TRAIN AREA

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - On top of the white cabinet on the northwest side of the first 
room.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Allow the first few Adjules to step under the fist C4 tripwire then shoot the 
C4 to kill at least two of them.  One of them will most likely survive.  Run 
all the way back to the north in order to step away from the train carts then 
take out the Hydra shotgun and wait for the other Adjule to race toward your 
characters then blast him.  It's best to get away from the train carts since 
the Adjules like to move underneath them while they run which basically keeps 
them out of view until right before they attack.

- Move around the side of the second train cart then quickly run back the way 
the characters came from when the battle music for the second wave of Adjules 
starts.  Stand in the north and face the south then aim the Hydra shotgun ahead 
and blast the Adjules as they race toward your character.

- When the characters move further around the side of the second cart, you'll 
hear Majini up above.  Turn around at that time and face the way the characters 
just came from (to the south) and two Adjules will leap over the wooden planks 
to the south.  Have the Hydra shotgun ready and blast them.  Run directly 
toward the south end after defeating them then turn around and prepare to fight 
the next two Adjules as they run at the characters from the north.

- Three Majini with crossbows are on the train carts above.  Wait for them to 
step into view or both characters can walk toward the north and watch for them 
up above then quickly take out the rifle and shoot them from a distance 
whenever the slightest bit of their bodies appear in view; the characters can 
take cover behind the train carts.  These crossbow Majini are much more 
aggressive than usual and will actually shoot the characters while they are in 
between the train carts, so be cautious after the third wave of Adjules.  Don't 
even try to stand out in the open and pick them off from a distance or they 
will shoot the characters quickly.

- Shoot both C4 tripwires before falling down to the rail cart in the east.  
Stand in the middle of the ramp area and look into the tunnel below with the 
PSG-1 rifle and you'll be able to see the explosive portion of the second C4 
tripwire on the right wall below in order to shoot it from a distance.

=========
The Mines
=========

--> THE DARK CAVE

- Knowing which enemies will become Cephalos is the best tips I can give you 
for getting through the dark cave section with ease.  Perform an instant kill 
melee on the following Majini to keep them from becoming Cephalos:

1) The first Majini that appears in the water down the tunnel (very first 
   Majini).
2) At the T-intersection, the Majini that is in the water off to the left.
3) Of the three Majini that attack on the other side of the bridge, the one 
   with the mining pick will become a guaranteed Cephalo.

Shoot each of the Majini listed above in the legs then run behind them and 
perform an instant kill melee.  If they do become a Cephalo then quickly take 
out the grenade launcher with flash rounds or a flash grenade and finish off 
the Cephalo quickly with a burst of light.  Some of the other Majini might 
randomly spawn a Cephalo, but the ones listed above will for sure turn into 
one.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - At the beginning of the tunnel lying beside a wooden crate and 
    the lantern.
[ ] Red Herb - When the path splits for the first time in the tunnel, this will 
    be down the right path.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Watch for snakes inside of the item boxes after moving across the bridge 
since the snakes take some heavy damage with their bites.

-------------------------------------------------------------------- SNAKE LIST
- Inside the right wooden crate that is next to another wooden crate and a 
  wooden barrel off to the right shortly after getting off the bridge.
- Inside the wooden crate down the hidden path to the left shortly before 
  exiting the dark portion of the mines.  It's near the diamond treasure chest.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--> THE LIT UP CAVE

Arm the Hydra shotgun then rotate the crank.  The second that the AI partner 
passes up under the gate, release the handle then face the dark cave entrance 
and prepare to shoot the three Majini that will attack.  The final one 
sometimes likes to stay concealed in the dark; keep in mind that he will toss 
his weapon.

The fight in the lit up open mine area can get out of hand very easily.  The 
Majini are so very aggressive in this area and the Majini with crossbows have 
some really good aim from their positions on the wooden platforms up above.  
Make sure to have the AI partner in cover mode.  Skip the cutscene as the 
Majini notice the characters then quickly run directly ahead and climb the 
first ladder.  Do not even attempt to fight.  Turn right and run to the next 
ladder then climb it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - On the third level of the tunnel along the right side in front 
    of the top portion of the ladder that the characters will have to climb.  
    It's beside a wooden barrel.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Arm the Hydra shotgun and blast any Majini that gets in your way.  A crossbow 
Majini will be off to the left.  Run at an angle while approaching him to avoid 
his bolt that he might fire then blast him out of the way and run into the 
first tunnel to the right.

The characters can defeat the majority of the Majini in the tunnel or simply 
keep running.  Arm the Hydra shotgun and prepare for them as they aggressively 
enter the tunnel.  They might come from both ends but the majority of them will 
enter from the side that the characters entered from.

At the far end of the tunnel, hide behind the wooden wall to the right and wait 
for the Majini with the crossbow to shoot at least once then step out and shoot 
a flash round or toss a flash grenade directly toward the three grouped Majini 
then quickly fight them off and get on the elevator then take it out of the 
mines. The Majini with the dynamite will blow up after being blinded and only 
one Majini with a crossbow should be left after the flash explosion.

WARNING: If you choose to run without killing the Majini then the Majini from 
the open mine area are most likely going to be right behind the characters when 
the characters get on the elevator so quickly shoot a flash round at the group 
after entering the elevator.

--> OUTSIDE THE MINE

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Off to the right near the stack of steel pipes before moving 
    up the stairs to activate the cutscene.
[ ] Green Herb - Next to the railing at the top of the stairway in the office 
    building.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the cutscene, run toward the window on the west side of the building then 
equip a rifle and take cover below the window.  Quickly rise up and shoot the 
two Majini with crossbows; one is standing in the back of the truck below and 
the other is on the mountainside to the left.  The one on the mountainside will 
not be positioned for shooting right at the beginning of this portion, so take 
advantage of this and shoot the one in the back of the truck first.

Right after shooting both crossbow Majini, look toward the truck with the 
stationary gatling gun turret and shoot the Majini that approaches the truck.  
Get up out of cover after shooting the Majini that moves toward the gatling gun 
turret.  A Majini should be coming up the stairs about that time, so take out 
the Hydra shotgun and plant a full face of buckshot to that head of his.

Return to the window immediately after shooting the lone Majini that tries to 
sneak up on the characters and shoot the Majini that tries to get behind the 
gatling gun turret in the truck below.  Another will try to get behind the 
turret after him.  One more Majini will move up the stairs from behind shortly, 
so be ready to turn around and shoot him.  A few more might move up the stairs 
also.

Once the Majini stop attacking, step toward the window and shoot any stragglers 
with the rifle.  Survey the entire mountain range and find the Majini with the 
crossbow and Majini with dynamite far in the distance then shoot each of them 
to rid yourself of those nuisances.  It might be easier to look on the 
mountainside after the characters exit the building for a better view.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - Along the left (south) path outside the building where the chest 
    containing the Diamond (Brilliant) is located.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beware the Majini in the outhouse before climbing the first ladder!

--> UP THE MOUNTAINSIDE

Sheva should not be hoisted up to the ladder.  Both characters should stay 
together and move up the mountain.  Arm the Hydra shotgun and blast any Majini 
with dynamite along the way.  It is very important to stay moving since Majini 
with dynamite will be tossing it from the path above.  It's best to shoot every 
Majini along the way and at least knock the Majini down to keep the AI partner 
from getting hit while following your main character.  A few of the Majini will 
be equipped with crossbows.  Don't ever stop moving for long.  Race toward the 
dumpster at the top.

The characters can actually push the dumpster over the side of the ledge while 
Majini continue to spawn from the south.  Right after the dumpster is pushed, 
run to the north and drop off the ledge near the wooden railing to trigger the 
cutscene for the Popokarimu fight.

If the characters stay and fight the Majini, then fire explosive rounds or toss 
hand grenades down at the Majini that jump from the mountainside in the middle 
of the curved path to the south that the characters just got off of.

NOTE: It is possible to move up hill and trigger the Majini then move back down 
the hill and shoot them as they run toward your character.  Listen for the 
battle music to end to know when all of them have been defeated.  Use a rifle 
to shoot them as they move down the hill.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - On the table to the left shortly before dropping down the side 
    of the ledge to activate the Popokarimu boss fight.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--> POPOKARIMU BOSS

Recommended Weapons:

Main Character:

- Hydra shotgun
- Grenade Launcher w/any round but electric rounds

AI Partner:

- any shotgun

** ANTO-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Popokarimu can be knocked out of the air and stunned right at the beginning of 
this battle by tossing a flash grenade at the ground or by shooting him with 
any type of round from the grenade launcher except for electric rounds.  Simply 
aim up at him as he descends then shoot him with any type of round other than 
an electric round to make him fall to the ground and roll over on his side.  
Any time that Popokarimu flies during the battle, he can be knocked down with 
the grenade launcher for an instant stun.  If he lands on the ground before 
your character can shoot him, it will take three of any type of grenade round 
except electric to knock him over at that time.

Proximity Bombs can also be used to stun him while he is on the ground much 
like in the lower difficulty modes but players will have to bring their own 
proximity bombs because there are none in the area, even in the barrels.

Once Popokarimu falls, run up to his weak spot on the back of his tail and 
blast him with the Hydra shotgun or a powerful magnum to easily kill him.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

A direct rocket launcher blast while Popokarimu is in the air will only make 
him fall to the ground and roll over to expose the back of his tail.  It will 
merely stun him.  Shooting him in the front portion with a rocket while he is 
in the ground will do nothing.  In order to take down Popokarimu with the 
rocket launcher, a character must stun Popokarimu first with the grenade 
launcher, flash grenade, or a proximity bomb then shoot him in the fleshy part 
of the back of his tail with the rocket.

=======
Savanna
=======

This portion is really no different on Pro than any other mode.  Instead of 
telling you to refer to the walkthrough portion of my guide, I have decided to 
copy and past everything here for you.  Keep in mind that the AI of each 
character will do what I say to do below.  For instance, AI Sheva will turn and 
shoot at the trucks.  While playing as Chris, pay attention to what she does 
and defend the other side if Majini appear on both sides.

Sheva has a slightly limited view compared to Chris, a slower overall turning 
speed, and her gun has a slow startup but her gatling gun is more powerful than 
Chris' machine gun.  To avoid the long chamber revolving animation with the 
gatling gun, tap the fire button when no enemies are present to keep it 
revolving.

Chris has a greater view thanks to his higher placement on the jeep, a faster 
overall turning speed, and an instant fire from his gun, but his gun is not as 
powerful as the gatling gun.

Keep in mind that both player's guns can overheat if they are continuously 
fired, so always take breaks.  The gun will build up heat as presented on the 
circular gauge around the weapon icon; when the gauge begins to fill with red 
then it is overheating.  When a gun fully overheats, your character will not be 
able to fire it for a few seconds.  With Sheva's gatling gun having a slow 
startup, a player will want to let go of the button and then tap it sparingly 
to avoid having to go through the full startup animation each time the gun is 
about to overheat.  As long as the chamber is not firing then it will cool 
down; it doesn't matter if it is spinning.

--> ENEMY GROUP 1

The first group of enemies consist of several Motorcycle Majini.  There's 
really not too much of a strategy for this group other than shoot them all.  If 
they ever throw a weapon toward the jeep then shoot the weapon out of the air 
to avoid taking damage.

After the first group is finished, a button tapping command will appear as the 
driver makes a sudden sharp turn, so be sure to tap the on-screen button to 
avoid taking damage.  Both players must tap the button.

--> ENEMY GROUP 2

From this point onward, both players should work together to take down separate 
teams of enemies.  Chris players should focus on Motorcycle Majini thanks to 
his greater view of the area below and Sheva players should focus on the trucks 
that appear since her weapon is more powerful.

NOTE: In a single player game, the AI partner will usually follow the 
strategies listed above.

.---------------------------------- WARNING ----------------------------------.
| Once a truck begins to flame, don't continue to fire at it while it is      |
| close to the jeep.  Having it explode while next to the jeep will damage    |
| the jeep.  Wait until it moves away then finish it off with gunfire.        |
'-----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

- Wave 1
Captain Stone (Josh) will contact both Chris and Sheva over the radio as a 
truck drives up from the right side of the back of the jeep.  Sheva should 
focus on the truck to the right while Chris turns his attention toward the 
Motorcycle Majini that appear on the left side.  Chris can shoot them faster 
and he has a wider view of them as they appear from the side.

- Wave 2
Sheva should focus on shooting the Majini in the back of the truck then she 
should shoot at the front half of the truck when it comes into view.  After the 
truck is at least flaming, both players should turn to the immediate left and 
finish off any Motorcycle Majini that appear.  They will start to appear from 
the left side as they slow down and drive next to the jeep so concentrate fire 
on them as the jeep begins to move by them.

Another scene will showcase yet another sharp turn where both players will have 
to tap a button to sustain they're grip on the vehicle.

-- CHECKPOINT

--> ENEMY GROUP 3

- Wave 1
A truck will drive up from the left side, so Sheva should focus her aim to the 
left and begin to fire at the truck.  Chris should keep his eye on the right 
side since some Motorcycle Majini will begin to appear as the jeep catches up 
to them.

-Wave 2
Motorcycle Majini armed with cocktails will drive into view from the right 
side.  Both Chris and Sheva should focus on these Majini since they are the 
only threat for the moment and are quite numerous.  Try to shoot them all 
before they toss a cocktail at the jeep.

-Wave 3
Majini will slow down then come into view on both sides of the jeep after the 
second wave is finished.  One player can take the left and one can take the 
right for this wave, but really planning it out as such is really not needed 
since they drive together in the middle of the road very shortly after 
appearing.

Another sharp turn cutscene will play so be prepared to press the two buttons 
that appear on the screen.  The players have to press either two shoulder 
buttons or two face buttons for this button prompt command.

--> ENEMY GROUP 4

- Wave 1
A truck will appear from the left and another truck will appear from the right 
almost simultaneously, so each player should pick a truck to focus on.  Try to 
take down the trucks as quickly as possible by shooting the front portion or 
possibly the driver inside of the truck (shoot off the door).  Immediately 
after finishing off a truck, both players should turn their attention toward 
the middle road as Motorcycle Majini begin to drive into view.  A few 
straggling Majini may appear from the back of the road.  Blast them all to end 
this wave.

-- CHECKPOINT

- Wave 2
The truck will stop and then suddenly turn as the viewpoint of a roadblock with 
a truck and several Majini are showcased to both players.  Chris players should 
focus fire on the Majini while a Sheva player shoots the red barrels 
surrounding the truck in the back.  There are three sets of red barrels 
altogether.

-- CHECKPOINT

--> ENEMY GROUP 5

- Wave 1
The jeep will drive over a bridge.  Once the bridge is passed both players 
should focus their aim to the right.  A truck will drive up from the right side 
and try to ram the jeep off the side of the cliff to the left.  Both players 
should focus on taking down the Majini in the back and then focus on shooting 
the front end of the truck.  Once the truck is destroyed a cutscene will play 
eventually.

- Wave 2
Motorcycle Majini will drive up from the right side, so both players should 
focus fire to the right.  The scene will eventually end during the middle of 
the action as a cutscene activates.

The Port (Night)
================

--> Ndesu boss

It is so very crucial to know Ndesu's attacks for this battle.  That aspect is 
so important that I'll copy and paste his attacks from the walkthrough right 
here for my readers.

Close attacks:

1) Foot Stomp - Ndesu raises his right foot into the air and tries to stomp the
   truck.

   Avoidance: Shoot his head to cancel the attack.

2) Right Hook - Ndesu raises his right arm to the side and tries to punch both 
   characters.

   Avoidance: Press the on-screen button inputs (press both the action and run 
   button on all difficulties except for Professional for a guaranteed dodge).

3) Overhead Punch - Ndesu leans back and raises both arms then tries to smash 
   the jeep  This takes some extreme damage.

   Avoidance: Aim upward then fire at his head right as he prepares to smash 
   the vehicle.  A few precise shots to his head will stagger him and cancel 
   the attack.  It's best to aim up and to the right of his head, this way, the 
   shots will hit his head right before he smashes the vehicle.

Distant Attacks:

4) Rock Toss - A cutscene will showcase Ndesu tearing up some of the ground as 
   he lifts a big boulder.  He will lift it above his head then toss it toward 
   the characters.  The boulder will roll toward the jeep.

   Avoidance: Fire at the boulder while he holds it over his head then follow 
   it with fire as it rolls along the ground to break it just before it reaches
   the jeep.  The characters can also shoot a nearby red barrel to make him 
   drop the boulder, but I recommend saving the barrel for when he grabs a 
   wooden pole.

5) Ground Pound - Ndesu lifts both arms into the air and pounds the ground, 
   creating a slight earthquake.

   Avoidance: Press the on-screen button inputs (press both the action and run
   button on all difficulties except for Professional for a guaranteed dodge).

6) Ram - Ndesu leans his top half downward and charges a ram then he runs 
   toward the jeep head first.

   Avoidance: Shoot him directly in his head to cancel this ram.

7) Pole Grab - Ndesu grabs a nearby wooden telephone pole from out of the 
   ground then walks toward the jeep with it.  This is not an attack but it 
   leads into other close range attacks and the pole grab can be canceled.

   Avoidance: If a red barrel is near Ndesu, fire at it and he will drop the 
   pole instantly when the blast hits him.

Pole Attacks:

8) Pole Swing - Ndesu holds the pole to his right side then swings it toward 
   the characters.

   Avoidance: Press the on-screen button inputs (press both the action and run
   button on all difficulties except for Professional for a guaranteed dodge).

9) Pole Smash - Ndesu lift both arms into the air while holding the pole then 
   tries to smash the jeep with the pole.

   Avoidance: Aim upward as he prepares to smash the vehicle then fire at his 
   head to cancel the attack; just like with the overhead punch, precision fire 
   toward his head will cancel the attack.  It's best to aim up and slightly to 
   the right of his head, this way, the shots will hit his head right before he 
   smashes the vehicle.

You should already know the basics of this battle by now.  Aim and fire at 
Ndesu's head to drive him away from the vehicle then shoot his Plaga as they 
move out of his body.  Once the Plaga are destroyed, fire at the big Plagas to 
damage him.

Here's the most important factors to beating him on Professional mode:

A) The AI is not always going to cover for the player in Pro mode if Ndesu is 
not hit in the head before he performs an attack that cannot be dodged, so the 
player should always make sure to aim for his head and fire to cancel the 
attacks that have no dodge command.  Basically, always fire at his head to 
cancel every attack of his.

B) Whenever Ndesu perform an attack that can be dodged, the player must press 
the precise button as displayed on the screen.  If ANY other button is pressed, 
the attack will hit the vehicle.  Simply pressing the fire button while the 
dodge command is up on the screen will cause the player to get hit.  It is SO 
VERY IMPORTANT that you realize that tapping another button will cause the 
dodge to fail.  If you're holding down the fire button while the command is on 
screen then that will not affect the command, so feel free to continue to hold 
the dodge button and press the correct button while still holding the fire 
button.  Don't ever fire at him when he leans to the side to attack.

C) A Chris player should shoot the Majini with the crossbows on the back right 
when they appear and shoot the Majini with the cocktails on the high walkway to 
the left when he appears.  The Majini will constantly reappear.  Keep in mind 
that the bolts from the crossbows and the cocktails can be shot out of the air. 
The explosive barrel next to the Majini with the crossbows can be shot to 
finish them off one time.

D) Make use of the explosive barrels around the area.  The two along the sides 
can be shot when Ndesu grabs a pole in order to make him drop the pole.  One 
explosive barrel is lying right next to Ndesu when he picks up a boulder; this 
explosive barrel can be shot one time to make him drop the boulder.  As already 
mentioned, there is an explosive barrel next to the area where the pair of 
Majini with crossbows will appear; shoot that barrel to finish both of them off 
instantly one time.

E) Once Ndesu showcases his big Plagas, fire at it and do not worry about the 
surrounding Majini.  If both characters fire at him continuously when he 
exposes his big Plagas two times then he will be defeated the second time.  If 
both character do not focus desperately on shooting him then he will recover 
after the second time and have to be stunned again for a third time!

The most important step out of all the ones listed above is to NOT press ANY 
other button when the dodge command appears.  The commands actually give the 
player enough time to respond, even on Pro mode.

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ Hydra shotgun
_ H&K MP5 machine gun (for Wetland Majini with shields
_ Any magnum (the Hydra could really take the place of this weapon)

==========
Marshlands
==========

- If the characters venture out to the chicken island, be forewarned that the 
chicken's attacks take quite a chunk of damage when they hit.  It's much like 
getting hit with a Majini attack in Veteran.  Use a flash round to kill off the 
chickens to avoid getting hit by them.  It's really good to drive out to the 
chicken island to pick up some extra eggs.  Don't be afraid to give eggs to 
your AI partner since they won't interrupt a Resuscitation.

--> OBTAINING THE RAPTOR SLATE

- The Crocodiles in the lake seem to appear quicker than usual.  Run around the 
left side of the lake like usual, but be sure to move quickly.

- Use either the Hydra shotgun or a hand grenade to kill the crocodile that 
guards the entrance to the area in the back of the lake.  You don't want to 
risk having to go through all the trouble of collecting the Raptor slate over 
again because you accidentally got eaten by a croc on the way back, do you?

- To make the first Wetland Majini fight much easier, hop through the first 
window of the building that the characters come across then quickly hop back 
through the window when the Wetland Majini make a sound.  Shoot them from the 
other side of the window and turn and shoot them if they move along the side of 
the building to the right.  They're so aggressive that most of them will bunch 
up around the window.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - Lying on the shelf near the first window in the first building 
    in the area where the characters collect the Raptor slate.
[ ] White Egg - Lying on the same shelf as the red herb mentioned above.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--> OBTAINING THE SHAMAN SLATE

- After obtaining the Shaman Slate, stand behind the wooden railing as the 
Wetland Majini enter the area.  This will make it to where they will want to 
hop over the railing.  Shoot them back over the side of the railing with the 
Hydra shotgun.  There is another railing off to the right once the characters 
turn to fight the Majini, but the Majini are so aggressive at this point that 
moving over there can get the characters hit in the process.

- Kill off the first wave of Majini really quickly with the Hydra shotgun then 
run toward the entryway to the current area and take out the PSG-1 rifle then 
aim and shoot at the Majini as they move toward the entryway from the south.  
All of them can be killed at a distance with the rifle.  Even the one that 
changes into a Duvalia can be killed with the rifle - shoot his legs then shoot 
his mouth as he leans over or simply toss a flash grenade toward him from a 
distance.

- Drive around the east side of the marsh while leaving in the boat since 
Majini with bombs will be on the high platforms along the north portion of the 
water.

--> OBTAINING THE WARRIOR SLATE

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Lying out in the water beside some tall grass and a fence 
    outside of the building area that contains the warrior slate.  Facing the 
    building area from the west side that the characters enter from, this is in 
    an alcove to the left while moving toward the wall that surrounds the 
    building area.  Drive toward it and allow the AI partner to pick it up.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Right when the Wetland Majini appear near the back building in the area with 
the warrior slate, shoot the first two (or one) that appear(s) with the Hydra 
shotgun.  Run all the way back to the boat and turn around to face them.  The 
characters will have a good view of the entire area and the Majini will have to 
move down the ramp to the west in order to reach the characters.  Take out the 
PSG-1 rifle and shoot them as they move down the ramp.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Lying on a shelf across from the chest that contains the Idol 
    (Silver) in the area with the warrior slate.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Before leaving the building area, make sure that the AI partner has either a 
PSG-1 rifle.   Make sure that the partner has the weapon equipped also.  Issue 
the "Go" command to make the AI equip the most powerful weapon or take all 
other weapons away from that character.  Drive toward the east exit and allow 
the partner to shoot at the Majini with explosive arrows on the high platforms. 
Slow down so the partner can shoot but don't stand still for long.  One hit 
from an explosive arrows will kill the characters.

- Back up a bit then use the turbo option (hold R1 + X) to dash down the east 
water path.  Run right over the Majini in the water and DO NOT STOP A BIT.  
Stopping will result in death most likely since they all shoot very quickly.  
As long as the boat is moving at full speed they will not hit your characters.

=======
Village
=======

- Stand in the water, right next to the BSAA emblem location at the beginning 
of the water-filled ditch and equip the rifle then aim toward the Wetland 
Majini on the high lookout tower in the east and shoot him.

- Don't collect the magnum unless you use the trick method for not setting off 
the trap.  Climb the ladder then drop into the area with the magnum to avoid 
setting it off.  Make sure the AI partner does NOT cross the spike holes while 
ENTERING the area with the magnum.  So long as the characters EXIT over the 
spike holes then the trap will not go off, but if either of them moves over the 
spike holes while entering the area with the magnum, that character will get 
trapped.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Lying on a long table behind the southwest hut.
[ ] Red Herb - Lying on a long table behind the southwest hut.
[ ] Red Herb - Lying on the long table on the first floor of the west building.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Some of the Majini that attack in the village will hop out from the path to 
the northeast.  Two Wetland Majini and a Giant Majini will move out of that 
path if the characters approach it.  Run toward this path with the Hydra 
shotgun armed then blast the two Majini and the Giant Majini as they appear.  
Blast and melee the Giant Majini all the way to the ladder or shoot him with a 
magnum (S&W M500) to bring him down quicker then climb the ladder.  Stand a 
little ways away from the dropoff with the ladder and blast the Wetland Majini 
with the Hydra shotgun as they attempt to hop up the side.  Even the Giant 
Majini can be knocked back down if he is hit out of the air.

The main problem here is the two Wetland Majini with explosive arrows that will 
attack along with the others.  Stand away from the side of the hill just a bit 
so that the wall below covers the characters from their arrows.  Be on the 
lookout for any stragglers that might appear afterwards.

- Watch for the snakes in the two pots on the altar on the other inside the 
building on the other side of the bridge.  Prepare to slash the pot followed by 
the snake if your characters breaks one.

-------------------------------------------------------------------- SNAKE LIST
- On the other side of the bridge, this snake is inside the small pot on the 
  altar inside the building (left pot).
- On the other side of the bridge, this snake is inside the small pot on the 
  altar inside the building (right pot).

================
Execution Ground
================

- Take out the PSG-1 rifle when the Majini notice the characters and find the 
three Majini with explosive arrows listed below:

a) One moves out of the tunnel in the east.
b) One stands above the ladder on the southwest middle portion.
c) One is on the lookout tower to the northeast.

The one on the lookout tower in the northeast is the least threatening one so 
take him down last.  Arm the Hydra shotgun and stand across from the dropoff on 
the north side of the wooden walkway that the characters are on.  DO NOT DROP!  
Issue continuous "Come on" commands if the AI partner tries to drop.  Blast the 
Wetland Majini with the rifle as they move toward the walkway from below and 
arm the Hydra shotgun then knock them back down the side of the dropoff when 
they try to jump on top of the wooden walkway.  Be on the lookout for 
stragglers after falling down the side of the walkway.

- Don't break the vases on the northeast side until after defeating the rest of 
the Majini since walking toward them will only make other Majini move out of 
the tunnel until the bridge is raised.

- When the characters hop over the gap in the walkways and step toward the top 
of the ladder, the second wave of Majini will appear.  Have the Hydra shotgun 
equipped ahead of time then turn back around and hop back over the gap.  Blast 
the two Majini that try to attack the characters on the other side.  There is a 
Majini with explosive arrows on the far south walkway, so line up with the ramp 
to keep him from shooting the characters (the ramp will shield them).  Fight 
off the Majini that hop across the gap then move up the ramp and arm the PSG-1 
rifle and then shoot the Majini with explosive arrows along the south ramp.

- Keep in mind that the raft portion with the crocodiles will cycle between 
L1+R1/LT+RT and []+X/X+A commands randomly.

- Beware the snakes in the tall grass in the camp area.  Shoot them while they 
lie coiled up in the tall grass.

====================
Oil Field - Refinery
====================

- Quickly take out the PSG-1 rifle and kill all crossbow Majini:

a) On the middle tower
b) At the top of the stairs in the southeast.

- Fall down below and toss a hand grenade as the Majini pile up.  Wait until 
slightly after the first Majini notices the characters so the two from the 
right get caught in the blast.  The hand grenade will rid the characters of the 
crossbow Majini and dynamite Majini around the corner to the right if timed 
well.  One crossbow Majini will appear on the south platform, so inch up the 
nearby stairs while facing the south then shoot him with the PSG-1 rifle when 
he appears in view.

- Make the AI partner turn the valve handle on the center tower then take out 
the grenade launcher with flash rounds and stand facing the north side.  When 
the Majini appear, shoot a flash round down at them then quickly take out the 
PSG-1 rifle and shoot the Majini below with the dynamite then shoot the Majini 
with the crossbow on the high platform to the left (while facing north).  The 
other Majini will quickly try to climb the middle tower, so use the Hydra 
shotgun to finish them off.

- Ride to the south platform with the zip line.  Right when the character falls 
on the valve handle platform, the Chainsaw Majini will attack.  Arm the Hydra 
shotgun then shoot him in the head when he jumps on top of the platform in 
order to stun him.  Either run up on him and hit him with continuous Hydra 
shots or hit him with the stun rod while close.  When he falls, he will get 
back up shortly and go into berserk mode, so stand over him with the Hydra or 
stun rod equip and start hitting him the moment that he starts to move and he 
should die when he rises. This same technique can be used against the second 
chainsaw Majini as well.

- When the characters move up the stairs in the east, take out the Hydra 
shotgun and run toward top of the stairs then blast the Majini as they appear 
from off to the left.  Tossing a hand grenade slightly before they appear can 
cause them to run into it.  One of them carries dynamite.  A flash round from 
the grenade launcher can work well to stun the first few when they step out.

============================
Oil Field - Control Facility
============================

- Use a flash round or flash grenade at any time during this part to blind all 
surrounding enemies in the room when they group up.

- The first wave of enemies will arrive very quickly by hopping over the east 
gate while another moves through the south window.  Take out the Hydra shotgun 
and stay away from east side then blast them as they appear.

- Run toward the north window and break it with the knife.  Right when the 
Majini wave appears from behind the window, toss a hand grenade into the room 
or stand near the window and blast them back with the Hydra shotgun.  The 
Majini will continue to hop over the fence to the side but many of them will 
continue to move through the window on the north side of the area.  Two Big Man 
Majini will hop through the north window toward the end of the battle.  Blast 
them with the Hydra shotgun or a powerful magnum.  The characters can get on 
the elevator immediately once Josh activates it and easily avoid the rest of 
the enemies.

- Look toward the east after getting off the elevator and blast any crossbow 
Majini that are on the walkway up above.  They like to drop down the side of 
the walkway, which will allow the characters to shoot them as they fall.  Take 
out the PSG-1 rifle and shoot any that try to fire at the characters from the 
walkway.  It's best to move around a bit to avoid the bolts from the crossbows 
and to see which ones will stay on the walkway.  The AI characters should 
finish off any that fall off the walkway.

- Climb up to the walkway where the Majini were at then step toward the ladder 
on the east side but DO NOT drop.  Stepping toward the ladder will make the 
next wave of crossbow Majini appear.  One will drop from the window on your 
side and two more will drop from the windows on the south side.  Take out the 
PSG-1 rifle then aim toward the south side and shoot the Majini with crossbows 
as they drop.  There are two of them total on the south side.  The AI 
characters should take care of the one that drops on your side.

- The second that Josh is lead toward the controls for the door, turn back 
around and climb the ladder, drop from the next ladder and climb the next 
ladder then take out the Hydra shotgun and wait for the Majini to move out of 
the elevator.  Once they come, stand at the top of the ladder that they try to 
move up then blast them back down.  Finish off as many as you can while 
stunning and blasting the Chainsaw Majini in the process when he jumps onto the 
platform.  The chainsaw Majini will get up and go into berserk mode so stand 
over him with the Hydra shotgun aimed straight at him then blast him when he 
starts to move.

- Once Josh opens the door, forget about the final wave of Majini and exit 
through the door.

=================
Oil Fields - Dock
=================

Place Proximity Bombs in the following places:

a) Outside the door of the small north building near the docks (NOT directly 
   in front of the door).
b) Outside the door of the small building on the other side of the gate (NOT 
   directly in front of the door).
c) A little bit away from and to the south of the gate door.  While Sheva 
   stands at the dock, place this one a little bit away from the gate door to 
   her left.
d) At the very bottom of the south set of stairs that lead toward the area 
   where the cutscene activates.
e) On the walkway right before the cutscene activates.  Place it near the left 
   railing while moving ahead.

Don't worry about the Majini with dynamite on the south building and the two on 
the gas tanks to the southeast.  Just run and avoid their dynamite.  If you 
place proximity bombs in the places labeled above then the explosions will go 
off right when the Majini waves appear in the areas ahead.  You'll have to stop 
and fight the Big Man Majini if you want to defeat him.  Shoot him with a 
magnum to quickly get rid of him.  The first set of Majini may not all fall 
from the proximity bombs, but their number will be limited greatly.  The same 
goes for the Majini that exit the building in the small building to the north 
right before the docks.  The Majini that run toward the gate and Adjules that 
appear along with the Big Man will all be destroyed with the bombs.  Use the 
Hydra shotgun to finish off any stragglers for any enemy wave.

WARNING 1: The proximity bomb method above will only work the first time 
through this area.  If you try to reload the checkpoint then the proximity 
bombs will be gone.  You'll have to quit and try again from the beginning of 
this area if your character dies to place more proximity bombs.

WARNING 2: Make sure that Josh is below the staircase by the building where the 
Adjules race out of and be sure to run along behind him so the enemy wave does 
not appear as he races by the final proximity bomb.  The bomb can go off and 
kill him if the timing for your character's arrival next to the building is too 
slow.

Hand grenades can be tossed at each wave as they appear and a grenade launcher 
with explosive rounds can knock down each wave.  Hand grenades are much more 
damaging than an explosive round however.  The Majini are so aggressive at 
these parts, the hand grenade method described in the walkthrough might not 
work as well this time, but the proximity bomb method sure will!  Keep in mind 
that you have to place the Proximity Bombs away from the door since the enemies 
have a certain frame of invincibility when first moving through a door.

Be sure to shoot the two C4 tripwires on the north set of stairs beside the 
building that the Adjules and Big Man Majini exit from.  In the race to the 
boat, it's very easy to fall victim to these traps on accident.

===============================
Oil Field - Drilling Facilities
===============================

--> FIRST GATE SWITCH

- Immediately when this chapter begins, shoot a flash round into the water 
directly behind the boat.  Equip, aim, and fire right when the chapter begins.  
This will blind both Majini in the boat on the right side and cause the one 
with the cocktail to drop his cocktail and burn both himself and the Majini 
with the crossbow that is with him.

Directly after shooting the flash round, sidestep while on the boat and allow 
your AI partner to shoot the Majini in the other boat.  They are aiming for 
your main character with some mighty good aim, so you better dodge and let your 
partner do the shooting.  Be ready to resuscitate at a moments notice here.  
It's hard to avoid getting hit at this part.  If you have a Bullet Proof Vest 
equipped to each character then that will help to make the arrows only take 
half of a characters life as opposed to instant dying status.

- Shoot flash rounds into the water to quickly defeat the Kipepeos once the 
boat docks; wait for them to get near the boat.  Stay on the boat and shoot the 
Majini to the until they stop appearing.  Two Majini with cocktails are on the 
back right and left top portion of the walkway, so shoot the explosive barrels 
next to them in order to defeat them quickly.

- Right after pulling the switch to open the gate, move into the nearby alcove. 
Shoot the Majini that runs toward the characters then step out and fire a flash 
round into the water to quickly defeat the Kipepeos.  Aim up toward the 
explosive barrels on the high walkway to the east and fire at them with a rifle 
to take down the Majini with dynamite up above.

- Before getting back on the boat, stand near it and face to the west with the 
rifle equipped.  Shoot any Majini that can be seen up ahead.  Basically shoot 
all explosive barrels and you'll get the majority of them.

- Focus on dodging the first two pipes while the AI partner shoots the Majini 
up ahead while moving along the river.

- Toward the end of the boat ride, as the boat drives toward the second dock, 
aim far ahead with the PSG-1 rifle and take down crossbow Majini as they appear 
in view on the scope.  If you don't take them down quickly then they will most 
likely shoot a character.  One of the Majini off to the right is near an 
explosive canister so simply aim at the canister.

If they hit a character, a quick Resuscitation will provide enough 
invincibility to keep both characters safe through the majority of the rest of 
the way to the dock until the boat stops.  A slight bit of luck comes into play 
here along with quick aiming.  Both the dynamite carriers and the bow gun 
Majini are just as deadly, but the crossbow Majini will hit your characters 
from a greater distance.

--> SECOND GATE SWITCH

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Lying along the left corner of the dock as the character get 
    off the boat.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- When the boat stops at the dock get out and get behind the wooden wall off to 
the left.  Try shoot a few of the crossbow Majini as they move out onto the top 
walkway.  Take cover as the Majini behind the gatling gun turrets begin to 
fire.  Step out and aim quickly then shoot them in the head.  Only step out and 
shoot ONE time.  Do not shoot anymore than one time before taking cover again, 
or your character will most likely get hit.  Make sure the AI partner is behind 
the wooden wall with your character.

The crossbow Majini will shoot two times during the entire barrage of bullets 
from a gatling gun, so after each crossbow Majini has shot twice then the 
barrage of bullets from the gatling guns are about to stop.  Take that slight 
break in gunfire to aim for a Majini and kill it.  It's not really that hard 
once your characters get into position and you realize when to shoot.

Watch for the Majini with melee weapons that will eventually drop off the side 
walkway in the back and move toward the characters from the sides.  The Majini 
that come from the left side are the most dangerous since the characters will 
still be behind the wall and won't see them until the Majini are right next to 
them most likely.  Give them a face full of Hydra when they step into view.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] First Aid Spray - Inside the building in the far east.  Drop off the metal 
    walkway directly across the wooden wall then follow it until the characters 
    come to a building.  This item is on the table inside the building.
[ ] Red Herb - On the other side of the dock.  After hopping across the gap in 
    the bridge, this will be to the left in a corner beside a wooden barrel.
[ ] Green Herb - On the high walkway along the south side of the middle office 
    building.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Once the gate is opened, move back up either one of the ladders and run 
toward a gatling gun turret then use it to defeat all the Kipepeos that fly 
toward the characters.  A single Majini with a crossbow will fire from below 
while your character is behind the gatling gun turret, so aim down and shoot 
him when he appears.

Patrol Boat
===========

--> IRVING BOSS

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ Hydra shotgun (for hitting his tentacles)
_ S&W M29 magnum (for damaging Irving's true body)
_ H&K PSG-1 rifle (for hitting the creature's head weak point)
_ First Aid Sprays

AI Partner:

_ Some sort of rifle other than the S75 with plenty of ammo, possibly the PSG-1
_ Longbow (this can be substituted for the rifle)

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD

I'll provide you with two methods for phase 1 of the battle (hitting his top 
head portion) since this boss can be quite hard on Professional mode.  Try to 
mix and match various portions of each method if needed.

This battle right here can get frustrating very quickly.  If Irving manages to 
hit a character then that character will get knocked back and the other will 
have a hard time trying to resuscitate the one that got hit.

- Method 1 (Phase 1) [slower method; requires less movement]

Take control of the gatling gun turret yourself and give the AI partner the 
PSG-1 rifle with tons of ammo then place it in attack mode ("Go" command).  
With an AI Sheva, you could give her the Longbow.

Focus on Irving's head weak spot with the gatling gun turret then quickly shoot 
the closest tentacles to your position whenever they emerge from the water.  
Whenever the tentacles move back underneath the water, continue to damage his 
weak spot.

Once he opens his mouth after enough damage has been made, quickly run away 
from the current side of the boat.  Stop whatever your character is doing and 
run to the opposite side.  The dodge command is not worth the trouble and a 
failed attempt will most likely result in death.  The positioning of the 
character during the attack will sometimes throw off the timing of the dodge 
command to where the button will only appear a second before the actual attack, 
so it is best to just move away from the attack altogether!  You can actually 
rush in and get in some hits on his head weak spot after his mouth closes.  The 
weak spot will be on the left side.

When he moves behind the boat, fire at him until he opens his mouth then move 
away from the back of the boat (toward the front) when he submerges to avoid 
his attack.  When his tentacles emerge all around the boat, take out the Hydra 
shotgun and shoot at them while they are in view and stay away from the sides 
as the tentacles reach out to grab.  If one of the tentacles grabs a character, 
quickly shoot the tentacle with the Hydra shotgun.  If your character gets 
grabbed, the AI partner will save your character.  When the tentacles start to 
slam the surface of the boat, quickly move to the sides or use the dodge 
command to move out of the way.  If a tentacle slams down on your character, 
that character will enter dying status and the AI partner will most likely not 
resuscitate the character because the recovery animation is too long.

- Method 2 (Phase 1) [faster method; requires more movement and partner 
  commands]

When Irving first appears, command your AI partner to control the gatling gun 
turret.  Take out the PSG-1 rifle and aim for the weak point on the creature's 
head then blast it.  Don't zoom in if you scope is upgraded since the zoom will 
be too great.

As Irving submerges to attack with his tentacles, run over to the rocket 
launcher turret and use it to blast the center portion of the tentacles while 
your AI partner blasts them with the gatling gun turret.  When Irving appears 
again, blast the creature's head with the PSG-1 rifle again.

When he opens his mouth and prepares to move toward the boat, issue the "Come 
on" command to get your AI partner to follow your main character then run to 
the opposite side of the boat so both characters can get away from the attack. 
The AI partner will sometimes dodge while stationed at the turret, but don't 
count on this.  Move along the creature's left side after its mouth closes and 
quickly shoot it in the weak portion of its head with the PSG-1 rifle to damage 
it a bit.

When Irving moves to the back of the boat, make the AI partner control a 
machine gun turret and blast Irving with the PSG-1 rifle in his weak point 
while the AI partner blast him with the gatling gun.  When Irving opens his 
mouth and is about to race toward the boat, issue the "Come on" command to call 
your AI partner away from the turret then run to the opposite side of the boat 
to dodge the attack.

When creature moves beside the boat again, go through the steps of making your 
AI partner use the gatling gun turret once again while your character shoots at 
him with the PSG-1.

- When Irving latches onto the back of the boat:

When Irving latches onto the back of the boat, have your AI partner use either 
gatling gun turret and take out the S&W M29 magnum and fire at Irving's body 
inside the open mouth. When he moves under the water, issue the "Come on" 
command to have your partner follow your character and run to the opposite 
side.  Run back to the south side after avoiding the attack then have your AI 
partner use the gatling gun turret once again.

The tentacles will emerge this time, but focus all gunfire on Irving.  Shoot 
him with the S&W M29 magnum right as the creature begins to emerge from the 
water and the AI partner will join in with gatling gun fire aimed directly at 
Irving's body.  Literally keep firing and spamming him with magnum shots and, 
if he is hit enough, he will move back up under the water before the tentacles 
have a chance to attack.  Issue the "Come on" command then run away from the 
south side of the boat once again.  Run back after avoiding the attack and 
repeat the same steps by commanding the AI partner to use the turret then take 
out the S&W M29 magnum and fire at Irving's body while it is exposed.

You really have to spam shots with the magnum while using this method.  He must 
be hit a bunch and you might have to waste bullets, so bring plenty of magnum 
ammo with your character.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Fire a rocket directly at Irving's creature body while he is swimming next to 
the boat to automatically make him dive under the water and end the first phase 
of the battle.  It's best to aim toward his weak point then fire and allow the 
rocket to travel to the right a bit and hit him in the body.

When the creature latches onto the back of the boat and exposes Irving's true 
body, shoot his body with the rocket launcher.  The hit has to be precise or 
else it will only explode nearby him.  It's best to aim a bit to the left when 
he first appears for the second time since his body will move to the left when 
it is first exposed.

Caves
=====

- The Kipepeos are not any more dangerous than they were in other modes, but 
your characters are going to use quite a bit of machine gun and handgun ammo to 
take each group of them down, so it's really best to use a flash round to get 
rid of groups of four or more.  Be sure to use a flash round on the first 
Kipepeo group on the other side of the rock bridge since they are the most 
numerous.

===============
Ancient Village
===============

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Once the bridge breaks, the character that falls below will 
find this on a fallen pillar in the area where the Wetland Majini attack.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Activate the Wetland Majini wave by stepping to the north after the bridge 
breaks.  Quickly move back to the south after the Majini attack then use the 
machine gun from a distance to finish them off quickly.  Arm the PSG-1 rifle 
then look toward the bottom of the bridge to the east and find the Majini with 
the shield and the Majini with explosive arrows.  Shoot them both then move 
under the bridge.

- When your character moves up under the bridge, Majini will step down the 
stairs ahead.  Be aware that one Majini will move up from the opening in the 
wall behind your character, so quickly turn to deal with the single Majini then 
turn back around shoot the Majini that are on top of the stairs.  Arm the MP5 
to easily deal with the Majini with shields that are in the top room before 
joining up with the AI partner.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - Break the vase at the top of the stairs after moving up under 
    the bridge and this will be inside.
[ ] Green Herb - Inside the small coffin in the room with the mummified corpse 
    beside the room where the Majini with shields lie in ambush.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- After dropping into the pit below the trapdoor, pick one hall, except for the 
north hall, and run to the very end of it then turn around and face the middle 
area.  Arm the MP5 and blast any Majini that move toward your character.  Keep 
in mind that all halls have a hole in the ceiling at the end that Wetland 
Majini will drop out of, so be ready to deal with one that will fall right next 
to your character.  Use flash rounds on Bui kichwa anytime that they appear in 
groups.  Take out the Hydra shotgun when the Torch Majini moves through the 
north doorway then lay down fire upon him when he moves close to the 
characters.  The MP5 does not work that well on the Torch Majini.

- Once the characters move through the north door of the trapdoor room, arm the 
rifle and shoot both of the Majini with explosive arrows below.  Use the Hydra 
shotgun or MP5 to deal with the rest.  Use the MP5 to deal with the Wetland 
Majini with shields.

- Rotate the crank then quickly move past the giant flaming fireballs and get 
to the pressure pad.  It's best to start out running as early as possible so 
the fireballs are not as spread out while attempting to get to the pressure 
pad.

- Consider picking up the grenade launcher weapon in the metal case near the 
blue statue since it will make a good weapon for the AI partner in this area.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] First Aid Spray - Break the vase in the tall grass off to the left when 
    entering the area with the blue statue in the northwest portion of the 
    labyrinth.  This is in the area where the characters have to move around 
    the north side to get to the right side of the blue statue.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Once the characters pull the chains on the green statue head to the east, the 
cutscene for the first Wetland Majini encounter in the Labyrinth will play.  
Quickly get behind the nearby wall and look through the window portion of the 
wall.  Take out the PSG-1 rifle then shoot the two Majini with explosive 
arrows; one is on the stairs and one is on the high walkway.  The Torch Majini 
will step around the right corner soon, so prepare to shoot him with the Hydra 
shotgun from up close.

Soon a group of Wetland Majini will step around the corner to the right, so use 
a flash round to blind them when they first appear then shoot them with the 
Hydra shotgun.  Shooting them with the Hydra shotgun without a flash round 
works just as well most of the time.  The Torch Majini might arrive with this 
group instead of by himself.  It might pay you to issue the "Go" command and 
have your AI partner shoot at them with the grenade launcher if the character 
has one.

A Majini with a shield will step into view once the characters move around the 
corner so take out the MP5 and blast him and other Majini that run toward the 
characters.  Arm the rifle and look off to the left while approaching the area 
around the corner then shoot the Majini with explosive arrows that will move 
along the back walkway.

- Make the AI partner waits beside the top floor purple statue then take the 
stairs down to the bottom floor purple statue.  Right when your characters 
enters the area below, and the Majini appear from up above, issue the "Come on" 
command so that the AI partner will join up with your character.  Rush back to 
the staircase and meet up with the partner.

Move to the top walkway and defeat any Majini up above.  Some Majini will move 
up the stairs and a few Bui kichwa will show up from time to time.  Take out 
the rifle and blast the Majini from a distance as they appear.  Move back down 
the stairs and blast the Majini as they appear in the corridor below.  Some of 
them will jump off the ledge to the right at the beginning of the corridor.  
This method will keep your characters from getting surrounded by the Majini and 
Bui kichwa.

--> POPOKARIMU BOSS

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHE METHOD

Either fight the Popokarimu boss or run from it.  If the characters run then 
just simply run by it when it first appears then move up the stairs until the 
characters reach the top.  Don't forget about the rapid button tap dodge 
command during the cutscene once the characters reach the top.  A flash round 
can stun Popokarimu at the beginning of the battle so that your characters can 
easily move by him.

If you choose to fight, then blast him with any type of grenade round except 
for electric rounds three times and he will fall over.  Each grenade round will 
stagger him so that he won't have a chance to attack.  Step around to the back 
of his tail while he is stunned then arm the Hydra shotgun and blast him in the 
back of his tail.  If both characters have a grenade launcher at the beginning 
of this battle then issue the "Go" command and spam Popokarimu with grenade 
rounds to make him fall very quickly.  Proximity bombs can still be used to 
stun him but they're really too much trouble to fool with in the closed in area 
he is fought in.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Stun him by shooting three grenade rounds (other than electric rounds) then 
move to the back of his tail and fire a rocket at the weak portion of his tail 
to kill him.

--> OBTAINING THE SEA EMBLEM (west)

- Activate the cutscene to make the lasers fire.  Step over to the small 
opening in the wall to the left of the door where the emblem slots can be 
placed.  Look through the small opening with the PSG-1 rifle then find the 
small opening in the wall near the west laser.  There is a big torch behind the 
opening.  Keep watching the small opening and you'll see a Majini's head move 
by the left side as it bobs back and forth.  Time a precise shot and shoot the 
Majini in the head to deactivate the northwest sun laser.  This can be rather 
hard to do but it's worth it!

Another way to accomplish this task for the northwest light pillar is to arm a 
rocket launcher and look toward the light pillar.  Find the side of the wall in 
front of the pillar that has a small opening on it.  Fire the rocket so that it 
hits the lit-up portion of the wall behind the torch near that opening and the 
explosion will hit the Majini behind the wall.  A grenade launcher with 
explosive rounds can be used to hit the Majini behind the northwest pillar as 
well.

- The northeast pillar can be deactivated with a rocket launcher.  Aim toward 
the pillar then find the torch on the east side then aim at the lit up wall  
behind the torch and fire the rocket to hit the Majini that is controlling the 
light pillar and deactivate that light pillar.  This can only be done with a 
rocket launcher until a character moves up the wooden walkway close to the 
pillar.

- If the sun laser on the northwest side was deactivated by shooting the Majini 
behind it, stand right outside of the left doorway that leads to the area with 
the bridge in the west and take out the PSG-1 rifle then look up on the high 
walkway in the back of the area to spot three Wetland Majini with explosive 
arrows.  Shoot all three of them and then prepare to shoot the Majini that move 
down the stairs and try to cross the bridge.  Shoot them all from the safety of 
the doorway and use the rifle to kill them quickly.  Move inside and take down 
any stragglers that run down the stairs.

- Place a proximity bomb below the north side of the walkway past the bridge. 
Look up and find the ledge with the torch on the back wall and place the 
proximity bomb a little bit away from the wall.  This will kill the Torch 
Majini that drops from this ledge when the Majini wave appears.  Another 
proximity bomb can be placed below the stairs to kill off a few more Majini 
that will appear later.

- Once the Majini appear when the characters step on top of the platform to 
collect the sea emblem, move over to the stairs of the platform and arm the 
Hydra shotgun then fire at them as they move toward the stairs.  Take out the 
magnum and shoot the Giant Majini in any skinned area.  As long as he is shot 
with the magnum in any skinned portion, it will cancel his attacks.

--> OBTAINING THE SKY EMBLEM (northwest)

- Near the north path, take cover behind the left corner of the wall at the top 
of the stairs.  Allow the laser to kill the Majini that move down the northwest 
walkway.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - At the top of the stairs in the northwest, this is right 
    beside the left cover point before stepping out onto the north walkway.
[ ] Green Herb - On the middle of the set of stairs that Sheva is tossed to.  
    The AI will usually not pick this up.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Before tossing Sheva over with the Assist Jump action command, give AI Sheva 
a Hydra shotgun or a magnum.  Stand on the other side of the ledge and fire 
flash rounds toward her side in order to stun the Majini and keep them off of 
her.  Shoot the flash rounds toward the wall above her to blind the Majini near 
her.  A Giant Majini will drop along with Sheva once she grabs the sky emblem 
so take out the magnum and shoot him.

--> OBTAINING THE EARTH EMBLEM (east)

- Time some runs all the way to the east, stepping in and out of openings to 
avoid the laser, then step around the wooden walkway on the far east portion 
and shoot the Majini that is behind the sun laser in the northeast.  This 
walkway has a torch on it that has an Emerald (Pear) inside.

- Run along the second floor of the east walkway then move toward the stairs 
that lead to the earth emblem from the second floor.  Arm the MP5 machine gun 
or the PSG-1 rifle and shoot at the Majini that move up the stairs.  One of 
them has explosive arrows but he will move around the left corner of the stairs 
below, so the characters will be slightly concealed from his explosive arrows 
while standing at the top of the stairs.  Shoot him quickly when he steps into 
view however.  You'll likely hear a Majini yell while moving down the stairs, 
so quickly move back up the stairs and fight off the remainder of the Majini.

- Move down the stairs until yet another yell can be heard then move right back 
up the stairs as the Majini drop from the south wall.  Many of them carry 
shields so shoot them with the MP5.  You need to be looking out for the Majini 
with explosive arrows that will stand on the south wall (to the right of the 
top of the stairs).  The characters can step around the outside wall of the 
second floor to the left in order to take cover from his explosive arrows.  
Lead the Majini out to the second floor walkway and blast them from there if 
the explosive arrow Majini is not taken down shortly after he appears on the 
ledge above.

- Knock down the pillar in between the light pillar and Mirror 1.  Stand on the 
east side while knocking it down to continue to the next step faster.  
Obviously, you don't want to stand on the end where the beam will hit your 
character so stand to the side of the pillar away from the beam.

- If the chest in the middle of the room is opened, shoot a flash round at the 
ground as the Bui kichwa surround the character.

- Two Bui kichwa will attack in the room with the impaled corpse inside the 
north room, but there is really no reason to go in there other than to shoot 
the BSAA emblem.  Use a flash round or simply shoot them with a handgun or 
machine gun.

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ Hydra shotgun (for close, single Licker Betas)
_ H&K MP5 machine gun (for quickly shattering frozen Licker Betas)
_ Grenade Launcher w/Nitrogen Rounds (for freezing Licker Beta groups)
_ 5 Proximity Bombs (for setting traps for Licker Betas)

_ First Aid Sprays

AI Partner:

_ M93R handgun

==================

- Perform the usual item collecting then open the door on the other side of the 
bridge.

======================
Progenitor Virus House
======================

The majority of this chapter segment merely serves as build-up for the 
introduction of the Licker Betas, so players can easily zoom through the 
beginning portion of this area.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - On a crate covered with white cloth off to the right before 
    reaching the door at the end of the first corridor.
[ ] Green Herb - In the far northwest corner of the room with caged animals.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--> FIRST FEW LICKER BETAS

- When the two Lickers attack on the southwest side of the room with caged 
animals, blast each of them with a nitrogen round then use a shot from the MP5 
to finish them off if the AI partner doesn't do it for your character.  Don't 
wait for them to group, shoot them individually.  Lickers are extremely 
aggressive on Pro and can take down a character very quickly.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - Under the long counter in the control room that is down the 
    corridor and through the first door to the right shortly after the first 
    Licker Beta encounter.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--> GROUPED LICKER BETAS

- Quietly move through the corridor with the glass panels and gently open the 
door at the end of the hall.  Place a proximity bomb in the middle portion of 
the corridor with the locked door at the end.  Kick down the door then run 
ahead and place another proximity bomb in the middle of the corner up ahead 
(near the right side of the corner, since they'll move around the right edge).  
Move on down the corridor then press the button for the elevator.

Arm a hand grenade and stand back then watch from the end of the corridor.  
When the explosion from the proximity bomb kills off a few, wait for them to 
bunch up then toss a hand grenade.  A direct hit will still kill off a group of 
Licker Betas.  Once the hand grenades are gone, shoot a nitrogen round at the 
remainder then shatter them with the MP5 machine gun.  Remember that the 
characters can instantly use the elevator to leave the area once it opens.

--> U-8 BOSS

Main Character:

_ PSG-1 rifle (for hitting U-8 in his leg weak spots)
_ VZ61 machine gun (for quickly defeating the insects U-8 releases)
_ 5 Hand Grenades (for the highly damaging "Toss in" command on U-8 when he is 
  stunned)
_ First Aid Sprays

AI Partner:

_ Any rifle except for S75 (for precise shots on leg weak spots)

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Along the center portion of the northwest side of the 
    platform.
[ ] Green Herb - Along the center portion of the east side of the platform.

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

When the battle begins, be sure to move away from the area directly in front of 
U-8.  Staying away from his center portion is the main key to avoiding the 
majority of his attacks.

ALWAYS run toward the opposite side that U-8 is moving to.  If he is moving 
toward the right side then run to the left.  Dash right in front of him while 
he moves along the platform while heading the opposite direction and he is 
usually not going to take a swing at the characters since he will be too busy 
moving in the current direction.

When he stops on the platform, stand at a distance and equip the PSG-1 then 
blast at the center red portion of either of his side legs that hang along the 
wall.  When he falls onto the platform, rush over to his mouth and use the 
"Toss in" command to toss a hand grenade into his mouth.  Remember that your 
character has to have a hand grenade in the current inventory to do this.

Keep up the same pattern of running, blasting with the PSG-1 and tossing 
grenades into his mouth and he will fall shortly.  When he releases insects 
into the area, fire the VZ61 at the insects whenever they group around your 
characters.  The insects still drop plenty of ammo like in other modes.  Their 
hits take about as much off as a Majini attack in normal mode, so their attacks 
will not put a character in instant dying status.

NOTE: If you're not good with precise aiming with a rifle, then try equipping 
the AK-74 during the battle and blasting his leg weak spots with its damaging 
rapid fire.  It can be just as deadly.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Take out the rocket launcher right when this fight starts then shoot U-8 
directly in the mouth with a rocket to damage him.  Make U-8 fall and expose 
his mouth by shooting at the middle red portion of one of his legs with any 
weapon then fire another rocket directly at his open mouth to kill him.

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ Hydra shotgun (for close Base Majini)
_ H&K MP5 machine gun (for quick fire on Base Majini)
_ PSG-1 rifle (for distant Base Majini)
_ Grenade Launcher w/flash rounds (for blinding Base Majini and stunning the 
  Reaper)
_ Nitrogen rounds for the grenade launcher (for freezing Licker Betas and Base 
  Majini w/metal shields)
_ S&W M500 magnum (for the Reaper's chest weak point)
_ Bullet Proof Vest
_ First Aid Sprays

AI Partner:

_ Any rifle
_ Jail Breaker shotgun
_ Bullet Proof Vest

NOTE: No matter which rifle is chosen, the AI partner can help out quite a bit 
with a rifle in this chapter.  The Base Majini with machine guns will mainly be 
aiming for the player, so the AI can get in some hits while the player 
unknowingly draws their attention at times.  The S75 really isn't a bad choice 
because its shell ejection will keep the AI from spamming shots and the rifle 
is the most powerful of the rifles when fully upgraded.

=====================
Experimental Facility
=====================

Simply exit the area by opening the door down the catwalk to the north.

=============
Power Station
=============

Base Majini machine gun fire takes down a character's health at an EXTREMELY 
quick rate, which will result in dying status with a few bullets, so you need 
to ALWAYS take cover when possible and move out to shoot them only when they 
stop firing.  Flash rounds from the grenade launcher work extremely well in 
blinding them for a few seconds so your character can get a precise shot.  A 
rifle and a grenade launcher equipped with flash rounds is a really good weapon 
combination to have for the next few chapters where Base Majini with machine 
guns are present.

--> FIRST BASE MAJINI ROOM

- For the first few Base Majini, shoot a flash round toward the wall to the 
side of the doorway up ahead then quickly get a headshot on one of them and 
then take cover and defeat the rest.  Take cover to the side of the door ahead 
after the first wave is defeated then quickly shoot the Majini with the stun 
rod as he exits through the back door and approaches the doorway in the center 
of the area.  Take cover then carefully shoot the other Base Majini in between 
his machine gun fire.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - On a covered crate through the doorway in the room with the 
    first group of Base Majini.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--> SECOND BASE MAJINI ROOM

- If needed, use a flash round in the next area to stun the close Base Majini 
then get a headshot on him with the rifle.  The other Base Majini in the back 
isn't as aggressive as the one in front, so carefully get a headshot on him 
before moving further into the room.  One more Base Majini with a machine gun 
is behind a crate on the left side up ahead.

- As the Base Majini wave moves out of the back left doorway, quickly run back 
to the entrance of the room then get behind the metal wall.  Stand right beside 
the corner across from the door so that the metal wall is to the left of the 
characters then simply aim the Hydra shotgun and shoot any Base Majini that 
move around the corner.  They will ALL move around the corner eventually, even 
the Base Majini with the machine guns.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - Lying next to some tall crates in the corridor behind the 
    doorway in the back left portion of the room with the second Base Majini 
    group.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- When collecting the red herb, look out for the Majini with the stun rod that 
will hop down the broken set of stairs in the corridor.

--> THIRD BASE MAJINI ROOM

- Lure the Base Majini with the stun rod into the beginning corridor then shoot 
him in the leg with a handgun or machine gun and run behind him then perform an 
instant kill melee to keep him from becoming a Cephalo.

- Take cover near the doorway then wait for a break in the Base Majini's 
gunfire then quickly go for a headshot.  The Base Majini on the top level will 
usually reload often, so simply shoot them in the head while they reload.

- The Majini near the metal crates at the top are so aggressive on Pro mode 
that they will start to fire before your characters can even move up the 
stairs.  Move up either staircase very slowly then aim at a Base Majini on each 
side near the crate and shoot them with the rifle.  You'll have to move up both 
stairs to do this.  Don't move to the top!

- Move up either set of stairs then arm the machine gun and move behind (don't 
use the cover command) one of the side walls at the top to avoid any machine 
gun fire from the Base Majini with machine guns in the very back of the room.  
Look toward the opposite side (left or right, not directly ahead) and fire at 
the red explosive canister as the Majini with stun rods race around the walkway 
on the other side.  Run over to the opposite side wall then look toward the 
opposite side and shoot the red canister as the Majini with stun rods try to 
move out from that side as well.  Wait for a break in gunfire from the Base 
Majini on the west side of the room then run toward the set of crates and take 
cover then shoot the explosive canisters behind them to finish all of them off 
with a few shots.

=============================
Experimental Facility Passage
=============================

--> LICKER ROOM

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Directly across from the starting door in the area with the 
    Licker Betas.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- A player can run by all the Licker Betas in the corridors up ahead but this 
can be just as hard as fighting them.  If you run by them run to the side of 
each Licker when approaching one to avoid its attack.  A Licker Beta will 
almost always be preparing some sort of attack while a character steps by it.

- To kill the Licker Betas, move down the corridor and shoot each of them with 
a nitrogen round then fire at them with the MP5 while they are frozen if they 
don't break into pieces before then.  Some of them will group up to where a 
nitrogen round will freeze the entire group.  Don't ever try to lure them 
together since their attacks are too fast to allow them to linger in front of 
your characters for too long.  If they are in a group then take advantage of 
that and aim in between them to freeze multiple Licker Betas.  Very distant 
Licker Betas can be easily shot and killed with the rifle; make sure that the 
tongue impale will not hit your character though.

======================
Missile Area 1st Floor
======================

Look off the walkway and keep in mind the high walkway with the red canister in 
the south.

--> CONVEYOR BELT AREA 1

- MAJOR TIP FOR THIS AREA: While standing near the ladder, face to the east 
then take out a hand grenade and toss it down at the Majini with the metal mask 
right below the ladder.  Toss it so that it hits him and makes him explode in 
the direct hit range.  QUICKLY, while the hand grenade bounces, take out the 
rifle and aim at the Majini on the bottom floor along the far east side then 
shoot him in the head before he fully finishes yelling.  This will cancel the 
battle where the Base Majini attack below.  Remember that you can restart and 
try again from the top walkway.

(Just in case you activate them use the tips below.)

- Fall off the ladder then use the shotgun and rifle to shoot the Majini on 
your current side.  Look up on the high walkway to the west and shoot the red 
explosive canister next to the Majini that tosses flash grenades.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - On a metal crate to the right after falling off the dropoff.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Hide behind the walls and take shots with the rifle whenever there is a break 
in gunfire.  If the Majini become too aggressive with their machine gun fire, 
take out the grenade launcher with flash rounds and fire a flash round toward 
the other side to stun them then shoot them with the rifle.  Two can play at 
this stunning game.

- Look to the east after moving ahead and find the Majini with grenades 
strapped to his chest on the high walkway on the other side then shoot his 
grenade strap with the rifle before he tosses pipe bombs toward your current 
side.

- Move over toward the stack of tall crates along the east portion of the 
opposite side then look up on the stairway to the north and shoot the Majini 
that tosses pipe bombs from the front of the exit door up above to keep from 
having to face off with him later.

--> CONVEYOR BELT AREA 2

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - After kicking down the door, step through the doorway and this 
    will be on a crate around the left corner.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The most effective way to get through the second conveyor belt area with ease 
is to arm a rifle and shoot the Majini up ahead the moment that they step into 
view.  Move SLOWLY along the conveyor belt and this part will be easy.

MAJOR TIP: Stand in the middle of the conveyor belt so that the characters are 
standing on the metal ends of the two conveyor belts.  This way, the characters 
will not constantly move backwards while attempting to make precise shots.  
This can make a BIG difference in the difficulty of this portion.

- Before getting off the walkway, arm the rifle and shoot the Majini on the 
first overhead walkway and the Majini on the second overhead walkway in the 
back.

TIP: The Majini with metal shields in this area can be instantly frozen by 
shooting a nitrogen round at them.  This is really not needed if the explosive 
canisters are shot but it might come in handy for the final Majini with a metal 
shield that moves up the set of stairs once the character reach the very end of 
the conveyor belt.

- Before moving too far down the conveyor belt, look toward the furthest 
walkway on the opposite end and shoot the explosive canister next to the Majini 
with pipe bombs to kill him off quick.  Move toward the middle portion, then, 
when you see the slightest movement of enemies up ahead (Majini with metal 
shields), aim toward them and shoot the explosive canisters along the sides of 
them to kill off the Majini with metal shields.

- Look on the high walkway in the back before too long while moving ahead and 
shoot the next Majini with pipe bombs then prepare to shoot the explosive 
canisters on the conveyor belt ahead to defeat two more Majini with metal 
shields that step onto the conveyor belt.

- Toward the end, watch as the two Majini with pipe bombs race out onto the 
high walkway at the other end.  QUICKLY shoot both of them with the rifle twice 
to kill each of them off.  Try to shoot them before they can toss a pipe bomb. 
More Majini with metal shields will arrive shortly after the Majini with pipe 
bombs, so prepare to shoot an explosive canister near them.

- The two final Majini with pipe bombs on the high walkway are the only real 
hard part about this conveyor belt portion since their pipe bombs can travel 
very far along the conveyor belt.  When the battle music stops that doesn't 
mean that everything is over with yet.  Two more Majini with metal shields will 
move up the stairs of the platform near the lever at the end, so stay on the 
conveyor belt and allow them to step on then shoot an explosive canister near 
them.  Up close Hydra shots will stop them from attacking if you happen to get 
off early, but you better keep shooting and find an opening somewhere.

--> AREA NEAR REAPER EGGS

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - On the long table with crates behind the area with the two 
    levers that the characters pull to activate the power to the lever back at 
    the conveyor belt with the test subjects on it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Arm the grenade launcher and shoot the Reaper with two flash rounds when it 
falls then shoot its chest weak point with one shot from a fully-powered S&W 
M500 magnum.  Come on, Come on!

==========================
Uroboros Research Facility
==========================

--> UROBOROS MKONO BOSS

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ Grenade Launcher with flame rounds (for stunning Uroboros and damaging its 
  tentacle weak points)
_ First Aid Sprays

AI Partner:

_ S75 rifle (this mainly keeps the AI from spamming ammo and it will help out a 
bunch in damaging Uroboros as well)

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Bring three sets of flame rounds with your main character.  On Pro mode, this 
battle is all about spamming Uroboros with flame rounds.  A character does not 
even need to worry about using the flamethrower and going through the usual 
method of taking off his arms to limit his attacks if flame rounds are used.

Simply stun him with a flame round then get right up on him while he is stunned 
and shoot his tentacle weak points with flame rounds.  One flame round will 
damage his weak points extremely bad and about three shots can destroy each 
one.  The only bad part about using flame rounds is that a flame round will not 
stun him long, so you're going to have to hit him with a flame round to stun 
him, shoot a tentacle weak point about two times with precise aiming, hit him 
with a flame round again, shoot him in a tentacle weak point and so on.  When 
you go to stun him, wait until he is about to attack to make sure that he is 
fully recovered before shooting another flame round.

The aiming is sometimes hard to manage with a grenade launcher when trying to 
hit a tentacle weak point with a flame round, but it is very much worth the 
effort since a flame round will destroy each weak point very quickly.  What can 
be a difficult boss fight is nothing but a mere pebble in your path when flame 
rounds are used on Uroboros Mkono.

Uroboros's physical attacks will all send a character into dying status.  If he 
sends his arm along the ground toward your character then be sure to use the 
button prompt dodge command to avoid it or that attack will instantly kill the 
targeted character. It will send that character into dying status and that 
character will die before even recovering from the fall.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Shoot Uroboros with the rocket launcher when he first appears on the screen.

Missile Area 2nd Floor
======================

- Shoot the Majini with machine guns as they first appear while your characters 
are on the north side of the catwalk.  Your characters won't even need to take 
cover if you aim toward them the moment they appear then shoot them.  Shoot 
them before breaking the tall crates off to the right when first stepping onto 
the catwalk to kill them early.

- Try to shoot many of the Majini that race out of the room on the south 
catwalk quickly.  Get behind the wall and shoot the stun rod Majini as they 
appear on the side of the west gap.  Don't even let them hop over to your side 
before killing them with the rifle.

- For the Reapers, shoot them with two flash rounds to make them expose their 
chest weak points then simply aim and shoot the weak point with the S&W M500 
magnum to finish them off with one shot if it is fully powered.  Even on 
Professional mode, the Reapers appearances in this area are based on chance.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - On the shelf in the room with the PSG-1 rifle in the metal case.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Use the rifle to shoot the Big Man Majini and the Majini with pipe bombs on 
the lift as it approaches.  Make sure that your main character moves across the 
lift instead of the AI partner.

- While moving across the lift, immediately take out the rifle and shoot the 
Majini with the machine gun that appears on the west walkway.  There is no 
cover here, so shoot him fast!  Instead of aiming for the legs of the Majini 
with metal shields on the other side, shoot them both with nitrogen rounds then 
finish them off with a melee.  They will both turn into Cephalos if they are 
finished off normally.

- Hide behind the cover wall on the other side of the lift and shoot the rocket 
launcher Majini like normal.  This part really isn't that much harder than any 
other mode considering a rocket launcher hit has always caused an instant dying 
status anyway. Use flash rounds to defeat the rocket launcher Majini that turn 
into Cephalos.

- Stand near the lift then look through the windows of the office with the 
rifle and shoot the Majini with the rocket launcher inside to keep from having 
to shoot him later; aim for his shoulders since he will have metal mask on.  
When approaching the office, make the AI partner open the door to the office by 
shouting the "Go" command then quickly fire a nitrogen round at the three 
Majini inside the office to freeze them all.  Shatter them with weapon fire 
then continue on.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Inside the office room, on the left side of the controls while 
    facing them.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

===============
Moving Platform
===============

Be sure to stay moving the entire while the platform rises for this segment.  
There is little cover and the character cannot afford to get hit by the machine 
gun fire that much at all.  When aiming at a Majini with the rifle, go for a 
quick shot then move again.  Don't stand still for long.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - In the corner directly ahead while starting in the corridor 
    that leads to the moving platform.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Right after pulling the lever to start the platform's ascent, rush behind the 
center portion of the platform to take cover from the gunfire of the Majini 
that rush out from the west catwalk that the characters just got off of.

- Quickly shoot the Majini on the east walkway when he rushes out to grab the 
lever.  The lift is constantly rotating but the characters can still get hit 
with machine gun fire rather easily, so shoot him quickly then step behind the 
middle portion of the platform or run to the side.

- A Majini on a north platform will begin to fire down at the characters 
shortly, so move behind the south end of the platform to avoid his gunfire.

- When the lift stops for the second time, quickly run to the southwest side 
and shoot the Majini that holds the lever.

- Stand on the north side of the center portion of the platform as it ascends 
to the very top so that your characters are on the opposite side of the stairs 
as the platform moves up to them.  Allow the Majini with machine guns to move 
along the stairs then take out the rifle and step out to the side then blast 
them one by one.  Shoot them all quickly since the middle portion of the 
platform does not provide full cover and they are slightly more persistent in 
trying to shoot your characters this time.

If this part gives you problems then try finding the stairway up above as the 
lift rises and you'll see the Majini through the catwalk as they rush toward 
the stairs.  They are all grouped.  Fire a nitrogen round at them to hit the 
whole crowd.  It's possible to freeze them then shoot them with an explosive 
round very quickly to shatter them.  If you don't have an explosive round then 
shoot them with the Hydra shotgun while aiming up at their frozen bodies to 
shatter them.  Both methods work rather well.

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ Grenade Launcher with nitrogen rounds (for freezing Licker Betas)
_ H&K MP5 machine gun (for shattering frozen Licker Betas)
_ Proximity Bombs (for placing along catwalk bridge)
_ 5 Hand Grenades (for big groups of Licker Betas)
_ First Aid Sprays

AI Partner:

_ S75 rifle (this mainly keeps the AI from spamming ammo and it will help out a 
bunch in damaging the Lickers as well)

- Shoot the first two Licker Betas along the catwalk with a nitrogen round then 
shatter each of their frozen bodies with the MP5 machine gun.  Along the way to 
the other side of the high walkway, you'll need to shoot another Licker Beta 
with a nitrogen round as it climbs up the right side of the walkway.

- Place a proximity bomb directly after shooting the Licker that is on the 
walkway near the bridge (back up a bit and place it).  Place another proximity 
bomb a little ways past the center of the north walkway and place another along 
the catwalk bridge with the crate at the end.  Place another on the catwalk 
bridge right before pushing the crate.  Run to the end and begin to push the 
crate.  Count the proximity bombs as they go off then turn and face the Licker 
Beta group behind your character and fire a nitrogen round at them then finish 
off the frozen Lickers with the MP5.  A player could also toss a few hand 
grenades at them from time to time instead of using up the nitrogen rounds.

.-------------------------------- CO-OP TIP ----------------------------------.
| During a Co-op game, the player that stays on the bottom floor can equip a  |

--> JILL AND WESKER BOSS                                                [JWPRO]

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ Grenade Launcher with flash rounds (for stopping Wesker's attacks)
_ Flash Grenades (for possibly stopping Jill's attacks)
_ S&W M500 or S&W M29 magnum (for shooting Wesker)
_ First Aid Sprays

AI Partner:

_ Nothing

This battle requires a lot of strategizing and thought while being played on 
Pro mode.  Jill is the main problem with this portion of the battle.  Her 
machine guns will instantly kill a character most of the time if she aims and 
fires at the character.  Don't equip the AI partner with any sort of weapon or 
else that character will be more inclined to go after Jill during this battle.  
You do NOT want that to happen.

This battle also requires luck to some degree because Jill can sometimes 
interrupt your plans.  Be ready to pause the game hit and select restart if the 
AI partner or your character is ever knocked into dying status.

Once again, this description is ALL based on single player.  The fight would be 
much easier with a human partner, but single player is the core concept of this 
Pro mode walkthrough.  If you want to get through the battle easily then scroll 
on down to the rocket launcher method.

- Getting past the door

Have a grenade launcher with flash rounds equipped as you current weapon or 
equip it very quickly at the beginning of this battle; it's really good to have 
the grenade launcher with flash rounds equipped after the cutscene where Wesker 
kicks your character through the door.  Naturally, you'll want to run toward 
the door to the right and examine it so that the cutscene where Wesker will 
kick your main character through the door will play to end the middle room 
battle, but on Pro mode, Jill can end your little cutscene exploit while you 
attempt it.

Right when the battle begins, run toward Jill's left side then circle to her 
backside and allow her to turn.  When she turns (or begins to turn), run toward 
the door.  You're basically running around her clockwise.  This will make it to 
where she will not fire her machine gun while your character heads toward the 
door.

The door cannot be examined while Wesker talks, so you'll always have those few 
seconds open to attack.  There is no way to cancel his words.  He will even 
talk while dodging an attack.  Check the door when you can to cancel the battle 
in the middle room.  Try to make sure that your AI partner is not directly 
behind your main character.

- On the other side of the door

Wesker will be in the doorway and your main character will be in the corner on 
the other side of the door as the battle resumes.  If you're AI partner was not 
directly behind your main character when the cutscene was triggered then you AI 
partner should be far enough away from Wesker to avoid his attack if he attacks 
the partner.  If your AI partner was right behind your character when the 
cutscen was triggered then that character will be right next to the open door 
while standing near Wesker.  Wesker will perform one of the following actions 
while standing next to the partner:

a) Walk away from the partner and head toward your main character
b) Fire his handgun at your main character
c) Dash toward your character
d) Jump and kick your AI partner immediately

Wesker's attacks are nearly immediate after the cutscene, so, if your partner 
was right next to him when the last cutscene ended then you'll have to have a 
grenade launcher with flash rounds equipped DIRECTLY AFTER THE CUTSCENE and 
fire a flash round as soon as the battle resumes.  Your character will aim at 
the wall and fire.  A flash round is fast enough to keep him from hitting the 
AI partner. If this technique is not used, then Wesker might hit your AI 
partner and send that character into dying status.  Wesker will block the door 
and your character won't be able to reach the AI partner if Wesker kicks the 
partner.

Using the fast equip to equip the grenade launcher as the battle resumes will 
make the flash round shot too slow to interrupt Wesker and a flash grenade 
takes too long as well.  Once the flash round is shot, Wesker will instantly 
stop whatever he is doing then immediately dash toward your character, so 
quickly run up the stairs and the AI partner will your main character.  If the 
AI partner was far enough way and a flash round was not fired then that 
character will follow the main character up the stairs then also.  The battle 
will go on as normal now

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD

- Stay out of Jill's way

The absolute most important part of the rest of this battle is to stay away 
from Jill.  If she is even on the screen and your character is not taking cover 
then you run a high risk of getting hit with her machine guns.  The bulletproof 
vest will help out a bit in absorbing some of the damage from the machine guns 
but Jill is still very dangerous to be on the screen with.  In single player, 
restraining her yourself will do nothing since the AI partner will not join in 
and throw her.

One thing you DO NOT want the AI partner to do is to go after Jill.  Having the 
AI partner run about its usual course of trying to restrain and knock out Jill 
is extremely risky and basically a death sentence for that character since Jill 
will almost always eventually fire her machine guns at that character.  Make 
sure that the partner is right behind your character or on the other side away 
from Jill!

- Hitting Wesker the first time

NOTE: Remember that if your character misses any of the shots below then, if 
you're quick enough, your character can wait until Wesker moves right toward 
the character (directly in front of him an starting up the animation for an 
attack) then quickly shoot Wesker right as he performs an attack (his kick) and 
stun him with that shot.  Shoot him again to set him up for a melee combo.

Run up the stairs and stop at the top of the second staircase.  Take out the 
magnum and aim down toward the corner.

Wait for Wesker to move by the corner and blast him twice.  He should have lost 
sight of your character and should be open to attack.  After firing at Wesker, 
run up to him and perform a melee combo.

Directly after the melee combo, turn and run down the hall to the north.  Run 
behind the first turn to the left then stand near the wall and wait for Wesker 
to move around the corner.

         |   |
         |   |
         |   |

Shoot Wesker as he rounds the corner then run up and perform a melee attack to 
him.  He might stay in the hall for a bit while attempting to find your 
character.  DO NOT enter the east hall again though because Jill should be in 
that hall right about now.  The melee combo that your character performs to 
Wesker will keep that character invincible from Jill's machine gun fire.  If 
Jill tries to round the corner then keep aiming and she will back flip every 
time since your character will be aiming at her.

Wesker might fall and retreat right here, but if he does not run off then run 
further down the hall to the west.  You're going to have run toward the next 
turn to the left outside of the northwest room and wait for Wesker there.

                _____________________________

This is really one of your final chances to take down Wesker because Jill will 
have more open area to move around and the AI partner will choose to go after 
Jill shortly after the AI partner enters the northwest room.  Wesker will move 
by the corner marked above rather quickly since he will not have a corner to 
turn, so don't aim the magnum directly toward the corner area.  Aim it a little 
to the left since Wesker will move rather fast.  He should fall within the 
first shot from either the M500 or M29 magnum if your character has already 
shot him four times and performed a melee twice on him.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD

In order to use the rocket launcher on Wesker, you'll have to perform all the 
steps listed above in relation to getting through the door.  After you're 
through the door, run north along the east hall until your characters reaches 
the first turn to the left.  Move down that hall then equip the rocket launcher 
and stand then aim at the corner that Wesker will move around while following 
your character.

Wesker will lose sight of your character halfway down the east hall, so blast 
him with the rocket launcher when he moves around the corner then shoot the 
rocket with a gun while he holds it.  Once again, you'll have to shoot the 
rocket with a weapon just like in the chapter 6-3 boss fight with Wesker.  It's 
possible to shoot him from the top of the staircase as labeled in the Anti-
rocket launcher method, but that shot can be risky, since he sometimes doesn't 
lose sight of your character while moving up the stairs.

--> JILL BOSS

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ Grenade Launcher with flash rounds (for a quick stun on Jill)
_ Flash Grenades (for a quick stun on Jill [flash rounds are more instant])
_ Any handgun (for shooting the device on Jill's chest)
_ First Aid Sprays

AI Partner:

_ Any handgun (for shooting the device on Jill's chest)

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

So long as your main character brings along a grenade launcher with flash 
rounds or some flash grenades (flash rounds are better), the battle with Jill 
alone is a piece of cake. The Entreat command with Chris is basically useless 
at this point.

At the beginning of the battle, immediately move down either set of stairs.  
Wait for Jill to flip to the middle of the room then aim down toward the floor 
in front of her then fire a flash round.  The flash round will stun her and 
allow the AI partner to grab her from behind.

Approach the restrained Jill and fire at her chest device with a handgun.  Any 
single fire handgun will do.  All weapons take the same amount of damage from 
the device.  Either perform 7 shots with handgun or 7 shots with magnum then 
tear off her device from a ground tear action command.  Which will you choose?

Right after shooting the device each time, approach Jill from the front to get 
the "Throw" command while in front of her.  Toss her to the ground.  She won't 
allow a player to do it the first few times, but every other time except for 
the first few times that she is tossed the floor, a player can get a "Tear Off" 
command while standing over her, so a player can activate that command while 
standing next to her grounded body after a few knockdowns to the floor.

DO NOT attempt the "Tear Off" command.  Jill will escape the hold and counter 
with a punch to which your character will have to dodge with a button prompt 
command.  The command will cycle randomly between the action and run button so 
be prepared to press either.  Because of the random button command cycling, you 
really need to skip the "Tear Off" command altogether and just go for gun shots 
while she is retrained instead.  If Jill hits a character, then that character 
is dead right then and there.  The recovery animation last too long for a 
resuscitation on Pro mode, so a partner can't do a thing once a character is 
hit by Jill's counter punch.  It's not like your chances for device shots are 
that limited anyway since she can be easily restunned with flash rounds.  Knife 
slash or shoot Jill with a low powered machine gun to make her get up quicker.

The battle is really simple if flash rounds or flash grenades are used.  Simply 
shoot or toss a flash explosive near her then allow the AI partner to grab her. 
If the AI partner does not restrain her, then try to get behind Jill yourself 
and restrain her so that the AI partner will shoot Jill's device.  Restun her 
with a flash round after she gets up from being stunned then repeat the process 
of retraining her then shooting her device.  While standing in front of Jill as 
she gets up, you can sometimes make it to where Jill stands up with the AI 
partner behind her and the AI partner will automatically restrain her, saving 
you the trouble of using a flash round!

Always shoot the device when you're able to since that will take more damage 
from it.  The only time a player will want to perform a "Tear Off" command is 
when Jill is grounded after a throw since her device can't be hit with gunfire 
at that time.

If Jill ever manages to run to the second floor, simply step under the floor 
and wait for her to move back down.  Cancel all of her machine gun attacks with 
a flash round or flash grenade.  Without the use of flash explosives, the AI 
partner will continue to follow Jill and Jill will eventually hit the AI 
partner.  This battle is extremely hard while only using the Entreat command 
and attempting to grab Jill randomly.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

The rocket launcher seems to take off just as much damage as any other weapon 
when shot at the device.  You'll need to use the anti-rocket launcher method 
this time or bring about 7 rocket launchers with your character.  Perhaps I 
would recommend the infinite rocket launcher in this case.  Go ahead, you may 
use it.  Now hold Jill carefully Sheva and let Chris blast that mean ole' 
device with a rocket.  Those target practice sessions with Forrest Speyer will 
finally pay off!

-- Extra Strategies for Jill fight:

Method 1:

While fighting Jill, arm the grenade launcher with flash rounds and shoot a 
flash round near her to stun her in place from the beginning.  Have the AI 
partner equipped with a handgun then get behind Jill while she is stunned then 
restrain Jill yourself so the AI partner can shoot. Face Jill's legs as she 
gets up and she should rise with her back to your character, so spam the action 
button to restrain her.  Try to restrain her then the AI partner will help out 
by shooting her chest device.  Allow Jill to lie on the ground and don't 
perform a ground tear.  All the rest of the restrains should be performed in 
the same way but your character will have to face her head after the second 
shot in order for her back to be facing your character once she gets up.  
Simply face her head and tap the action button as she gets up to restrain her 
so the AI partner will shoot her chest device.

Entreat her if you must, but restrains should work fine as long as your main 
character faces her head portion.  Keep this pattern up until her chest device 
has been shot 6 times then perform a ground tear to tear it off and end the 
battle.  Ground tears prior to six shots will only screw up the process of 
entreating and restraining her.  It doesn't really make it any quicker by 
performing a ground tear and you'll have to chase after Jill more after dodging 
her counter attack since your character will roll away from her during the 
dodge.  Knife slash Jill or shoot her once with a low powered machine gun to 
make her get up faster.

NOTE: In order to avoid using flash rounds at all, move down the left staircase 
right as the battle starts and tap the action button to quickly entreat Jill 
while playing as Chris and she will stagger as she runs directly ahead to where 
she can be easily restrained.  This command will only appear for a slight 
second if you're extremely fast in moving down the left set of stairs.

The key part to getting through this battle quickly is to know which way she 
will turn after each knockdown so your character can quickly restrain her.  
Face her legs after shooting the device and throwing her down once then face 
her head after shooting the device for the second time and tossing her down.  
Always face her head for any throw after two shots.  Don't let the AI partner 
attempt to retrain her since the AI partner will only end up annoying the hell 
out of the player with random throws from her front side instead of restrains 
from behind.

Method 2:

A player can actually still use the Entreat command while fighting Jill on Pro, 
but you'll need to make sure that Jill is trying to attack your character.  Her 
attacks can be easily sidestepped while using Type B or D controls.  Simply 
step around her attacks then Entreat her while dodging.  The problem here is 
that she will sometimes go after the AI partner however.

Method 3:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ik_xWOejbOs

The player in the next video we have here is quickly restraining Jill at the 
beginning of the battle and allowing the AI partner to shoot the device then 
throw here.  The AI partner is armed with a handgun.  The player is moving 
forward just a bit after the AI partner throws Jill so that the AI partner 
moves behind Jill.

The player uses a flash round to stun Jill so that the AI partner will grab 
her.  Directly after each shot to the device the player shoots another flash 
round at Jill to both stun her and keep the AI partner in place.  The AI 
partner responds with an automatic restraint after the blinding flash each time 
since the AI partner doesn't have time to move.  This method works with both 
characters.

The device only takes 6 shots, so it can be torn off after the sixth shot after 
the AI partner tosses Jill to the floor.  This method actually works extremely 
well and is easy to do and it will definitely help for a better overall time 
with the Jill battle.

Method 4:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4DPhPyL4Bo

As you can see, the player in the video above is running down the left set of 
stairs right as the battle with Jill begins.  If you watch closely, a quick 
"Entreat" command appears since he is meeting Jill right when he reaches the 
bottom of the stairs.  The player is quickly Entreating Jill before she runs 
by.  The Entreat stuns Jill right when she stops.

The player shoots the device while Jill is stunned then quickly shoots her in 
the chest to stagger her.  The player quickly shoots the device and then the 
chest multiple times, one right after the other, to damage the device then 
stagger her with another shot.  The VZ61 machine gun that is used does little 
damage for each body shot so it won't kill Jill.  The staggering shots are also 
keeping the AI partner from grabbing Jill.  Notice how the AI partner only 
grabs Jill once the shots have ceased.  This method can be very hard and the 
beginning Entreat is luck based since Jill will sometimes not run directly 
ahead as the battle starts.

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ Hydra shotgun (for close Base Majini)
_ H&K MP5 machine gun (for quick fire on Base Majini)
_ PSG-1 rifle (for distant Base Majini)
_ Grenade Launcher w/flash rounds (for blinding Base Majini and killing plagas 
  Adjules)
_ S&W M500 magnum (for Gatling Gun Majini [Hydra can suffice])
_ First Aid Sprays

AI Partner:

_ Any rifle
_ Jail Breaker shotgun
_ Proximity Bombs (request from partner later)

=========
Ship Deck
=========

- Take out the PSG-1 rifle then look up on the tower to the northeast and shoot 
the Majini armed with pipe bombs on the second platform from the top.  One of 
the stun rod Majini can be seen on the top platform as well, so shoot him too. 
Stand at the south end of the walkway below the ladder that the characters drop 
from and use the rifle to shoot the Majini with stun rods before they get close 
to your characters.

- Climb the ladders to reach the very top of the tower then take out the PSG-1 
rifle and look on top of the crane tower to the southwest then shoot the Majini 
across from the lever to cancel the cage drop later in the level, which will 
make this level so much easier!

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Use the ladder behind the tower to climb up to the north 
    walkway on the ship then collect this from near the side railing to the 
    left.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Move up the staircase on the north side with your character's back turned 
(walk backwards up the stairs) then quickly blast the Adjules with the Hydra 
shotgun whenever they jump out of the metal container.  Return to the bottom of 
the stairs then turn and shoot the other Majini that move down the stairs.  Be 
sure to use the Hydra shotgun to shoot the Majini that move down the stairs 
since they will be rather close.  One of them will change into a Cephalo, so 
take out the grenade launcher with flash rounds and shoot it.

- Don't move down the second set of stairs but instead take out the rifle and 
look to the left below the stairs to spot the Big Man Majini lying in wait.  
Shoot him from the top of the stairs and kill him before moving down the 
stairs.

- One of the Adjules up ahead will arrive with his plagas exposed so shoot a 
flash round toward both of them then take out the Hydra shotgun and finish off 
the other Adjule and the Majini.  When the single Majini appears further ahead, 
shoot him in the leg with a handgun or machine gun then rush behind and perform 
an instant kill melee attack to keep him from changing into a Duvalia.  A 
character could simply shoot a flash round toward him if he changes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - Lying in a space below a crate shortly after turning to the left 
    after the Big Man Majini encounter.
[ ] First Aid Spray - Lying near two breakable tall crates in the area where 
    the cage trap would normally drop.
[ ] Green Herb - Lying near some sandbags off to the left after climbing the 
    ladder near the first aid spray pickup.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Use the Hydra shotgun to easily deal with the two Big Man Majini near the 
lifts.  Be sure to rush toward the area where your AI partner gets off of the 
lift.  It doesn't really matter which route your character takes, but quickly 
meet up with the AI partner in case the Adjules hit that character.

- If you want to grab the gold in the safe to the north, have the grenade 
launcher with flash rounds ready before pressing the button to the lift in the 
north then shoot the plagas Adjule from the other side after the lift moves up 
to easily defeat him.

=========
Ship Hold
=========

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - In the first room, this is on a shelf to the left before 
    moving down the stairs.
[ ] Green Herb - On a shelf on the west side of the room where the characters 
    meet Excella.  This is off to the left near the exit door.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--> ROOM WITH MAJINI LOOKOUTS

Be sure to request all weapons from the AI partner before entering this room. 
Stand on the walkway and shoot the following Majini lookouts in the order 
displayed below so your characters can avoid all the Majini that would normally 
attack in the room below:

a) The Majini on the walkway directly across from the door.
b) The Majini on the high walkway across from the walkway (look up and to the 
   south).
c) The Majini behind the crates below (left).
d) The Majini behind the crates below (right).
e) The Majini around the side of the walkway to the east.  He's behind the 
   cover wall.  MAKE SURE to take cover behind the wall near him and then pop 
   out and shoot him in the head.  Otherwise, he might notice your characters 
   if a character simply steps out from behind the wall.
f) The Majini that climbs up the ladder from below while the characters are on 
   the east walkway.

Shoot all of the above Majini and the alarm will not go off and your characters 
can easily make it through the room below.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Next to a crate on the first floor on the south side.  It's 
    near some oil canisters.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Arm the Hydra shotgun and shoot all the Majini with machine guns in the 
tunnel that leads to the other side of the ship hold.  Shoot them quickly when 
they first notice your characters to avoid having them fire their machine guns 
if they carry one.  Perform an instant kill melee on the Majini that drops from 
the ladder at the end of the tunnel to keep him from becoming a Duvalia or 
simply kill him normally and shoot a flash round.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - In between the crates off to the right after climbing the ladder 
    that leads out of the tunnel.
[ ] Green Herb - On the second floor walkway to the north in the area where the 
    characters battle the Gatling Gun Majini.
[ ] Green Herb - On the bottom floor in the area where the characters fight the 
    Gatling Gun Majini.  This is on a crate along the north side of the room.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--> GATLING GUN MAJINI BOSS

** ANTI ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Hide behind a cover point on the center set of crates and wait for the Gatling 
Gun Majini to move down the stairs.  If he shoots toward the AI partner, rush 
at him with your character.  Hit him with a Hydra shotgun blast from up close 
then run up and melee him as he slides back. Shoot him again with the Hydra 
from close range then run up a melee.  Keep pushing him back with constant 
shotgun blasts and melees and he will fall very quickly.

The characters can also drop back into the tunnel and plant proximity bombs 
along the tunnel then shoot him with the magnum whenever he is stunned from an 
explosion.  With how narrow the tunnel is, he has to walk over each proximity 
bomb, so simply lay them out and hide behind a wall then jump out and fire the 
magnum at him while he is stunned.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Point the rocket launcher at him when the battle begins and fire.  Yawn.

--> ROCKET LAUNCHER MAJINI AREA

This area is not any different than playing it on any other mode since the 
rocket hits are always instant dying status anyway.  Hide behind the crates and 
shoot the Majini with rocket launchers when there is a break in their rocket 
launcher fire.  Two of them are on the walkway across from the characters (left 
and right sides) and one of them is on the floor in between the two walkways.  
Try to shoot one of the rocket launcher Majini on the walkway from the 
beginning in order to stagger him and this will keep two rockets from 
destroying the first two crates. Kill the wounded rocket launcher Majini off 
after taking cover from the first rocket.  Shoot the one below with a headshot 
and then finally shoot the other one on the walkway.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - On a covered crate off to the right at the starting of the 
    room with the rocket launcher Majini.

Be sure to watch for all the overhead tentacles along the way:

- Before reaching the first green herb
- While approaching the dead Majini body in the hall outside the room with the 
  Chalice (Gold) treasure
- Right before reaching the stairs outside the room with the dead Majini body 
  inside

They all still require an action button press in order to dodge them, even on 
Pro mode.  They won't send a character into dying status with the first hit but 
they take quite a bit of damage.

- Once the characters move up the stairs, arm a machine gun then aim down and 
shoot the first Majini that lies in the hall ahead to make him get up.  Kill 
him off then shoot at the Majini to the right down the hall to the left and he 
will get up along with a few others.  Blast them all with your weapon of choice 
then get ready to kill off a fully armored Majini.

Use a flash round to stun him if he dashes or blast the armored Majini with 
Hydra shotgun to push him back.  He will change into a Duvalia if he isn't 
killed with an instant kill melee from behind.  You'll have to aim down at his 
feet in order to get a leg stun on him.  Shoot a flash round at the Duvalia if

--> UROBOROS AHERI BOSS

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ Grenade Launcher with flame rounds (for killing Uroboros blobs and damaging 
  the core of the Uroboros)
_ Flame Rounds (load your inventory with tons of flame round ammo)

AI Partner:

_ S75 rifle (for shooting the tentacles to weaken them)
_ First Aid Sprays

** ANTI ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

- Making the most of the inventory

Have the AI partner's inventory filled with nothing but the S75 rifle, rifle 
ammo and have all the rest as healing items.  Your character should have the 
grenade launcher and tons of flame rounds.  The AI partner should do the 
healing this time since you're main character is going to be very busy!  
Throughout this battle, pick a back corner on the bottom floor and DO NOT move 
from that corner.  You want both characters to stay together.  The AI partner 
will heal your character very well since the AI character will stay in the 
corner with your character providing an almost instant Resuscitation or heal 
when needed.

Flame Rounds are absolutely essential to have in this battle because of the 
Uroboros blobs.  The Uroboros blobs and the command dodging are some of the 
hardest factors to overcome in this battle on Pro mode but if you have the 
right equipment setup a shown above then the battle isn't that bad at all, but 
you still have to be very careful.

With the S75 rifle, the AI partner will help out greatly for this battle since 
that character will be firing with a very damaging weapon if fully powered at 
that character won't be able to waste too much ammo because of the constant 
bullet ejection.  Thanks to the S75's high capacity, only one extra slot of 
rifle ammo is really needed to help out for this battle.  The AI partner has 
some real good pinpoint aiming for hitting the tentacles also!

- Revealing the core for the fist time

At the start of the battle, equip the grenade launcher.  You can actually point 
toward the left side and shoot one of the glowing tentacles rather easily with 
a flame round to damage it badly.  Run over to the LTD laser portion in the 
middle of the area and pick up the LTD with your main character.  Run over to a 
corner and put your back to it.  Find a darkened tentacle among the two 
tentacles then aim at it and fire.

Directly after firing, drop the LTD and allow it to recharge then fire flame 
rounds at the Uroboros blobs that will land on the platform.  One flame round 
can finish off a whole group.  These enemies will appear after each tentacle is 
damaged badly or destroyed.  They're attacks will not send a character into 
dying status right off, but each attack will take around 25% of a characters 
life and the Uroboros substance that covers a character will drain that 
characters health down to near dying status.

Pick up the LTD after the majority of the Uroboros blobs have been finished and 
the LTD should be nearing full recharge.  The AI partner should take care of 
any single blobs that are left most of the time.  Quickly aim up at the other 
tentacle and lock onto it then fire.

Immediately after shooting the final tentacle, while the core of the Uroboros 
is preparing to reveal itself, lay down the LTD laser and fire flame rounds at 
the surrounding Uroboros blobs.  Once the majority of them have been killed 
off, aim toward the core of the Uroboros and fire two flame rounds at it to 
damage it badly then pick up the LTD and lock onto the core then fire the laser 
at it.  This will severely damage the Uroboros core.  Lay down the LTD once 
again and fire flame rounds at the Uroboros blobs that land on the platform.

- Revealing the core for the second time

While firing at the Uroboros blobs, after the core has been damage, the four 
tentacles of the Uroboros will rise into the air and prepare to smash the 
platform, so quickly fire a flame round up at one of the tentacles to cancel 
the attack.  This shot will not produce any Uroboros blobs on the platform.

When the four tentacles are on the screen, pick up the LTD laser while the AI 
partner shoots the with the S75 rifle then try to find a darkened tentacle and 
then lock onto it and fire.  Try to always find the tentacle that the AI 
partner has been firing at and this will help out a bunch in aiming at it since 
it will be slower.

You'll need to go through a pattern of firing the LTD laser, laying it down, 
firing flame rounds at the Uroboros blobs, picking up the LTD laser, firing 
again until all tentacles are gone.  Remember that destroying or highly 
damaging a tentacle will always make Uroboros blobs rain down on the platform, 
so always be prepared to handle them with flame rounds.

The portion of the battle where all four tentacles are on the screen at the 
same time is the most dangerous part of the battle since the tentacles will ram 
toward your character and try to smash the character.  The Uroboros tentacles 
will glow brightly shortly before they ram.  You'll get a button prompt dodge 
command to dodge the attack shortly before the ram.  It is possible to quickly 
arm the grenade launcher and shoot a flame round at the glowing tentacle to 
cancel it's attack and it is also possible to quickly pick up an item before 
the attack so that the attack passes right through your character during the 
item pickup invincibility animation.

By standing in a corner, your characters will be so close together that the AI 
partner will instantly heal your character out of dying status even with a 
healing item, so mistakes can be made here and you'll still be able to 
continue.

When the core reveals itself again, sweep the platform of Uroboros blobs by 
firing flame rounds at them then fire two flame rounds at the core.  Pick up 
the LTD laser and fire.  The second laser shot should finish off the Uroboros.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

The Uroboros must be shot in its core for a one hit kill with the rocket 
launcher so use the method described above until the core is revealed then 
shoot the core with the rocket launcher to finish off the Uroboros.

Nothing really special here, so get to the Bridge

Get to the Engine Room and let's stop this impending Biohazard! *snicker*

===========
Engine Room
===========

- Stand at the starting position and begin shooting the Majini around the area 
with the rifle.  Shoot the Majini near the lever to the right up ahead and the 
Majini on the high walkway to the left up ahead.  Shoot the two Majini around 
the missiles below (right and left side).  The Majini down the walkway to the 
left will get killed by an explosion as the characters approach him

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - At the end of the walkway to the left as it stretches to the 
    east.  This is in a left corner at the end.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Look down into the shallow water and shoot the Majini before hopping down 
into the water.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - Around the side of the metal pillar near the lever that opens 
    the first bulkhead door.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--> OPENING THE FIRST BULKHEAD DOOR

- Immediately after using the lever to open the first bulkhead door, turn to 
the west and move in between the metal pillar and the wall so that the Majini 
on the high south walkway cannot hit your characters with pipe bombs.  Arm the 
Hydra shotgun then immediately start to blast the Majini that move around the 
side of the metal pillar (they drop from a high ledge up above).  Carefully 
move around the side of the pillar then take out the Hydra shotgun and blast 
any Majini that move up the stairs toward your characters.  The Majini with 
stun rods can move pretty quickly, so remain aiming.  Watch out for any Majini 
that might drop from the overhead ledge near the pillar also.  Take out the 
rifle to shoot any distant Majini but remain primarily focused on the Majini 
that will move up the stairs.

- Rush behind the first north pillar in the middle of the room as the bulkhead 
doors begin to open since Majini with machine guns will soon start to fire from 
the other bulkhead room to the south. Take out the rifle and shoot them when 
there is a break in their gunfire.  Shoot them as they try to jump over the gap 
and shoot the machine gun Majini in the very back of the next room; the Majini 
in the very back have less accurate aim, but don't always count on that.  Make 
sure to survey the area before and while moving on.  Straggler Majini with 
machine guns can catch a player off guard so very easily in this area.

- Hop over the gap then look toward the staircase off to the left (in the back 
of the area) with your rifle then quickly shoot the Majini with the rocket 
launcher as he steps into his usual position.  Scan the high walkway to the 
south then shoot the second rocket launcher Majini on that walkway.

- Stand behind a cover point and shoot at any Majini that try to move over the 
railings in the center of the area.  Finish them off before they can get to 
your characters.  Majini with machine guns will begin to enter the area from 
the west walkway, so look on that walkway and shoot them as they try to jump 
toward the middle area.  Two waves of them will appear.  Be very cautious while 
moving to the south since there are sometimes straggler machine gun Majini that 
can easily finish off your fine run on Pro mode.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Green Herb - In front of the second left pillar in the second bulkhead 
    room.
[ ] Green Herb - On the north end of the right walkway.  Use the ladder to get 
    up on this walkway.
[ ] Green Herb - In a corner along the south side of the left area with 
    standing water below the side of the middle walkway.
[ ] Green Herb - At the north end of the right area with standing water below 
    the side of the middle walkway.
[ ] First Aid Spray - Step onto the high walkway in the south and this will be 
    on a table inside the left (east) room.
[ ] Red Herb - Step onto the high walkway in the south and this will be on a 
    metal crate inside the right (west) room.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--> THE REAPERS

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Wait for both Reapers to gather on the middle walkway after pulling the levers 
- run around the walkway and dodge their attacks until they step together.  
While they are grouped, fire a flash round twice at both of them to make them 
expose their chest weak points.  Shoot each of them in the their chest weak 
point with a shot from the S&W M29 magnum to finish both of them off with one 
shot each.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Fire a rocket at each of the Reapers as they appear.  They don't arrive at the 
same times, so it's easy to fire a rocket at them both as they move toward the 
characters.

--> THE GATLING GUN MAJINI

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Don't even think about heading for the stationary gatling gun to take on the 
Gatling Gun Majini or they will easily kill both characters along the way.  Oh, 
surely you kid, Berserker, we can just use flash rounds to blind them and then 
get to the gatling gun, right?  No, the yellow one wears sunglasses and is 
immune to flash explosives.

Run all the way back to the far north and stand in the middle of the walkway 
against the north wall.  Arm the PSG-1 rifle and have the AI arm the S75 rifle; 
take the shotgun or any other weapon away from the AI partner if needed.

Right when the Gatling Gun Majini show themselves, start firing at them with 
the PSG-1 rifle and the AI partner will fire at them with the S75.  Don't take 
cover at the moment, just stand out in the open and shoot.  Try to shoot them 
in the head, but don't constantly go for headshots.  You mainly want to spam 
them with gunfire.  Headshots will instantly stun them and a few shots anywhere 
on there body will stun them eventually.  Blast any Majini that try to move 
toward your characters while doing this.  Switch to the S&W M29 magnum when the 
Gatling Gun Majini get close and shoot them with it.  A few shots from the 
magnum will knock them out of their attacks and stun them.

The Gatling Gun Majini in the yellow outfit is the weaker of the two, so 
concentrate the most on him to bring him down so you'll only have to deal with 
one, but spread fire between both of them to stun them as they move toward your 
characters.  Eventually, your characters will most likely have to take cover 
behind a nearby pillar to avoid gunfire but there should only be one left by 
then and he shouldn't have much health left.

TIP: To make the above battle ever easier, place a few proximity bombs along 
the path of the red Gatling Gun Majini.  Place one right beside the first metal 
pillar to the west and one beside the second metal pillar to the west while 
moving back toward the north bulkhead door.  This will stun him while he walks 
toward the characters and help out a lot in damaging him.  For precise 
placement of the bombs, look at the floor next to the west pillars; the yellow 
line signifies the red Gatling Gun Majini's path to the north usually.  Make 
sure to place them far enough apart to where one explosion doesn't set off the 
other proximity bomb.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Stand on the middle walkway right near the bars of the bulkhead door after 
defeating the two Reapers and face the room behind the bars.  Find the portion 
of the floor in between the two lifts that the Gatling Gun Majini will rise 
from and aim toward that area.  After the cutscene that introduces the two 
Gatling Gun Majini, aim toward the floor in between the two lifts that they 
rise from then quickly fire a rocket at the floor in between them so that the 
explosion of the rocket hits them both and this will kill both of them 
instantly.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] First Aid Spray - At the top of the right (west) high platform in the third 
    bulkhead room.
[ ] Green Herb - Move down the stairs on the right (west) side of the third 
    bulkhead room and this will be in the back corner behind the stairs.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TIP: Before exiting the area, equip the grenade launcher with flash rounds to 
get a helpful edge on the next boss battle.

--> WESKER BOSS

Recommended Weapons

Main Character:

_ H&K MP5 machine gun (for hitting the rocket that Wesker grabs)
_ S&W M29 magnum (for weakening Wesker once the rocket launcher is out of ammo)
_ Grenade Launcher w/flash rounds (for canceling Wesker's attacks while he 
  chases the AI partner; this basically draws his attention toward the main 
  player)
_ First Aid Sprays

AI Partner:

_ Any magnum

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD (well sorta'):

Right when this battle begins, Wesker might try to shoot at your characters, so 
be ready to dodge his handgun fire.  If your main character has the grenade 
launcher with flash rounds equipped right from the beginning of the battle, 
then quickly point at the floor and fire a flash round to cancel any attacks 
that Wesker might perform.

Shut off all the lights in the area like normal; as usual, this will reduce 
Wesker's visibility while he attempts to find the characters.  If Wesker is 
dashing toward your character while that character is near a lever, DO NOT 
issue a command to turn off the light since Wesker is likely to hit your 
character before or after the lever pull.

Stand near a lever and get the AI partner to shut it off and that character 
will shut off the rest of the lights in the area.  The AI partner needs to be 
kept busy so that the AI character will not try to engage in combat with Wesker 
at the moment.  If Wesker follows your character then that is excellent since 
you can easily dodge his attacks by stepping away from him.  If Wesker tries to 
go after the AI partner then shoot a flash round at him to make him run toward 
your main character.  Run to the northwest and break the glass on the case then 
take the RPG-7 NVS.

This battle hasn't really changed all that much except for one little tiny 
thing.  One rocket.  Whenever a character takes the RPG-7 NVS from the glass 
case along the northwest side of the area, the rocket that comes loaded in the 
RPG is the ONLY rocket that can be found in the area.  The tall crate to the 
northeast and tall crate on the high northeast walkway that usually contained 
RPG rounds only have a random item and the glass case on the second floor does 
not have any rockets inside.

Make that one rocket count!  Shoot him with the rocket when he has lost sight 
of your characters then shoot the rocket with a weak weapon and rush in for the 
restrain.  It will fail, but it's always fun to try in vain for the first time, 
right?  This first restrain does not have to be activated in order to finally 
restrain and inject him the second time.

Once the rocket has been used, the remainder of the battle must be spent 
weakening Wesker with a magnum and melee combos.  Wait for him to lose sight of 
your characters then fire at him twice with any magnum to make him stagger.  
Run up and perform a melee combo on him while he staggers.

'-----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
* The "Reverse Kick" command starts the combination and the rest of the 
  commands are timed presses.

Constantly stun Wesker with two magnum shots then run up and perform a melee 
combo to him.  Wesker is much more inclined to kick the levers in order to turn 
the lights back on Pro mode, so a character can easily fire at him while he 
tries.  Try not to let him turn them back on or your characters will have to go 
through the trouble of turning it back off to darken the area.

The main problem with taking on Wesker with a magnum is that the AI partner 
tends to stick around and attempt to take him on solo.  This can be bad, but it 
can be used to your advantage if your character runs away from Wesker.  While 
the AI partner is near him, shoot at Wesker to damage him then run up and 
perform a melee combo again.

Eventually, he will fall and your character will be able to get a "Restrain" 
command from behind him once again.  When the restrain command is activated for 
the second time, the AI partner will inject Wesker with the suppressant and the 
battle will end.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

To save on purchasing two rocket launchers, use the RPG-7 NVS for the first 
rocket launcher hit then bring your own rocket launcher into the battle and 
fire the second rocket while Wesker holds the first rocket then run up and 
restrain him to have your AI partner inject him then end the battle.

With the infinite rocket launcher, a player can simply spam rockets on Wesker. 
Fire a rocket then fire another rocket while he holds the first.  A player will 
have to do this two times (four rockets) in order to weaken him enough to where 
the characters can inject him however.

The following list the commands for the cutscene after the first Wesker fight:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
-> COMMAND INPUT 1

Sequence: After Wesker says: "Uroboros will be released into the atmosphere 
          ensuring complete global saturation", he will dash toward both 
          characters and try to impale one of them with his arm.

Type:     Single button press (Possible two button press on Pro mode)

Command:  Dodge

Player:   Both (If a player fails, then that player's character gets impaled 
          with Wesker's arm.)

giving it to that character is up to the player.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- ITEM LIST
[ ] Red Herb - In between the two tall crates to the right after turning to 
    toward the plane.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nothing has really changed for the beginning portions of this battle.  Run from 
him like normal until the characters are forced to split up.  The main obstacle 
that either character really needs to focus on is dodging Wesker's Uroboros 
projectiles since they will send a character into immediate dying status on Pro 
mode.  Make sure to hit the dodge button commands as they appear to dodge 
these.  Remember that during the cutscene when Sheva pulls herself up, a Chris 
player will have to continue to dodge the Uroboros projectiles as Wesker fires 
them toward Chris.

Each character should shoot Wesker like normal from a distance while he chases 
after the partner.  Use a rifle and fire at him.  Sheva players will need to 
focus on hitting his back weak point while he walks toward Chris.  Chris 
players won't have to worry about hitting any particular area while Wesker 
chases after Sheva.

** ANTI-ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Once both characters meet, constantly try to move behind Wesker.  If he grabs 
your character, press the assist button to make the AI partner knock him off.  
If he grabs the AI partner, free that character yourself with a partner assist 
melee command (assist button near the character).  Aim at Wesker's back weak 
point whenever he performs a right arm attack and blast the back weak point 
with the Hydra shotgun to stun him.

Once his back weak point is shot, use the "Come on" command to call the AI 
partner away from Wesker then allow Wesker to perform his Uroboros spiral 
attack.  If the Chris player has a melee vest equipped then that player can 
survive Sheva's slashes on Pro mode, but a Chris player that is not equipped 
with a melee vest will most certainly die by Sheva's hand since her stabs will 
easily kill the Chris player.  A Chris player with a melee vest can approach 
Wesker's backside after his Uroboros spiral attack to get a "Restrain" command. 
A Chris player needs to be sure to tap the run button as quickly as possible 
while Sheva slashes Wesker.  Start pressing the button before the rapid button 
prompt command appears.  Sheva should only take about half of Chris' life if 
the melee vest is equipped to the Chris player.

In order to take Wesker down without using the restrain command, a player must 
shoot him in his frontal weak point with a magnum.  Use the S&W M29 to aim at 
the orange weak point in the center portion of his chest and fire at the weak 
point to damage him.  If Wesker does not turn toward your characters or if he 
attacks, simply shoot him anywhere on his body with the magnum to make him face 
your character and expose his frontal weak point.  He will eventually hide the 
weak point again and you'll need to get behind him and shoot his back weak 
point with the Hydra shotgun.

Always use the Hydra shotgun or a Jail Breaker shotgun to hit his back weak 
point since you really won't have time to aim and its close spread will surely 
hit the weak point if the shot is fired at his back while the weak point is 
exposed.  There are times where the weak point will not be exposed.  It is only 
exposed when Wesker performs a right arm attack, but it's best to constantly 
try to move to the back of Wesker and see if his back weak point is exposed 
since getting behind him will usually allow the character to avoid his attacks 
in the process.

It is not hard to take down Wesker without the hold and cut commands but it 
will take a bit more work than usual.  He can be killed when he is stunned for 
the second time if your characters spam his frontal weak point with magnum fire 
both times.

** ROCKET LAUNCHER METHOD:

Bring a Hydra shotgun with your character and then get behind Wesker and fire 
at his back weak point with a shotgun blast.  Remember that he will only 
showcase the back weak point during a right arm attack.  When he exposes his 
frontal weak point, aim at it then fire a rocket directly at it.  If he tries 
to attack or turn to the side, quickly take out a powerful weapon then shoot 
him to make him face forward then shoot him with the rocket launcher.

- Faster method with rocket launcher

While playing as Chris, anytime before or up until Wesker chases the characters 
to the end of the rock ledge, aim up at the weak rock ledge that a character 
must shoot to obtain the Diamond (Marquise) treasure then shoot it with the 
rocket launcher (or the far right top portion with a shotgun) to make it 
crumble before Chris has to drop from the ledge.

With Chris, immediately after falling, turn to the north (left) then hop over 
to the ledge with the Diamond (Marquise) treasure.  DON'T move over to the 
treasure however, turn around to face Wesker instead.  Wait for him to jump 
onto middle rock that leads to the ledge where your character is and wait for 
him to raise his right arm.  Quickly leap back to the rock that he is on then 
leap back to the starting ledge where Chris dropped.  Quick turn and aim at 
Wesker then fire a rocket at his back weak point to finish the battle.

The following list the command for the final cutscene:

                                  S-RANK GUIDE                           [SG00]
===============================================================================

The following section lists information on how to S-rank each chapter on normal 
mode.  These tips are meant for normal mode, but they can still work on 
Professional Mode as well.  For S-ranking Professional, I recommend looking at 
the video section above.

========
OVERVIEW
========

A player will need to achieve an S-rank on at least one difficulty in order to 
unlock the Wesker (rare) figure to complete the figures list.  This section 
will give a player tips on how to minimize time, maintain accuracy, kill more 
enemies and avoid death.  Each chapter section in the guide breaks down each 
stage based on the tips that I give a reader for each category if there is a 
noticeable method for obtaining it easily.  The categories are: Accuracy, 
Enemies Routed, Deaths and Time.

===============
S-RANK CRITERIA
===============

The following is a breakdown and description of all the categories that player 
is graded on at the end of each stage.

-- ACCURACY
Accuracy is determined by taking the shots that a player has fired divided by 
the total number of times that an enemy is actually hit.  An enemy must be hit 
while it is still living.  Shooting an enemy while it is dying or literally on 
the floor dead will not count as a hit and will count against accuracy.  Any 
shot that does not hit an enemy will count as a shot missed.

Explosive shots such as grenade rounds must hit some type of enemy in order to 
count as a hit.  The hit does not have to be direct with a grenade round so 
long as the shot's area effect hits an enemy.  Melee weapons do not count 
against accuracy even when a strike does not hit.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED
Enemies Routed stands for the number of enemies that have been defeated in a 
chapter.  Majini, boss enemies and even animals count toward this category.  A 
player can shoot crows, snakes, and rats among other type of animals found in 
the various environments in a chapter in order to boost kills.

-- DEATHS
This represents the number of times that a player's character died and the 
player chose to continue.  Always choose to not continue then start over from 
the prior save at the last checkpoint.  Each accepted continue will count 
against a player.

-- CLEAR TIME
Clear time is a player's total time taken to complete a stage.  Time will not 
continue to count down when the game is paused.

===========
S-RANK TIPS
===========

INFINITE AMMO DOES NOT COUNT AGAINST RANK
There is not penalty for using infinite ammo or a rocket launcher so a player 
can easily use these options while attempting an S-rank.

RESTART OFTEN IF SOMETHING IS SCREWED UP
Each checkpoint retains all the current stats the player has accomplished up to 
that checkpoint, so restarting over at a checkpoint will not retain anything 
that was done up until that point.  Long story short, if your character enters 
dying status, you miss a shot or take too long then quickly restart from the 
previous checkpoint to have another try without retaining the flaws of your 
previous attempt; Restarting wipes your slate clean.  This is most useful for 
gamers that want to S-rank Professional mode.

RESTART IF YOU NEED TO GRAB OR PURCHASE A WEAPON OR ITEM
Just like what is mentioned above, restarting will not count against you, so 
restart at the last checkpoint if you need to grab an item from the main 
inventory or purchase an item.

PAUSING THE GAME DOES NOT EFFECT TIME
Simply put, pausing the game at any point does not effect the time category for 
your chapter ranking.  You could be at one full minute on the chapter segment 
timer then pause the game and read over my full Resident Evil 5 guide on 
GameFAQs from start to finish then come back in the next three days that it 
takes to read it thoroughly and still be at one minute on the timer clock.

EQUIP ANY GRENADE TYPE TO RUN FASTER
Instead of having a gun equipped all the time, equip any type of grenade while 
running through a stage in order to make your character move a bit quicker than 
usual.

Recommended Weapons:

M29 magnum
Grenade Launcher w/explosive rounds
Rocket Launcher

== Back Alley ==

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Toss a flash grenade or shoot a flash round at the crows 
that are on the dead dog carcass down the stairs near the beginning for some 
extra kills.

-- TIME: Run by the first Majini that attacks.  Simply move to the side as he 
dashes then exit the room.

-- TIME: Avoid the mob of Majini in the alley.  Quick turn and run to the door 
behind the characters.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: On your way to the door while being chased by the Majini in 
the back alley, a player can toss a flash grenade over the fence of the chicken 
pen to defeat the two chickens inside for two extra kills.  The fence will be 
to the right just before reaching the door.

-- ENERMIES ROUTED: A player can toss a flash grenade or shoot a flash round at 
the rates in the underground tunnel for some extra kills.

-- TIME: It's best not to fight any enemies until the Public Assembly is 
reached since you can get all of your kills at the Public Assembly.  You're 
confined in that area for a certain amount of time, so use that time to gain 
kills.

== Public  Assembly ==

-- TIME: Run against the gate as the Executioner breaks the gate and get out 
into the town area as quickly as possible.  The gate swing from the Executioner 
CANNOT hit your characters.  The longer a character stays behind the gate 
portion, the longer the stage will last.  Getting past the gate is what will 
start the timer for the Public Assembly battle.

-- TIME/ENEMIES ROUTED: Fire a rocket at the Executioner ONLY after he fully 
breaks the gate.  He is immune to damage while behind the gate and a few frames 
after he breaks the gate.  Run into the town immediately after he breaks the 
gate then turn and fire a rocket at him.  He can so easily be taken down with 
the M29 magnum as well.  Your call.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Use a magnum to finish off the Majini at the Public 
Assembly.  Be sure to aim carefully and don't shoot at a Majini that tries to 
dodge to the side.  Any type of explosive will work well also.  Make sure that 
you hit an enemy if a grenade launcher is used since failure to hit anything 
with its spread will decrease accuracy.

Recommended Weapons:

M29 magnum
Rocket Launcher

== Urban District ==

-- TIME: All Majini in the stage can be run by but a few of them need to be 
killed in order to gain the kill amount for the chapter.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Shoot enough Majini along the way to satisfy the kill amount 
for this chapter.  Count them as you shoot them then only shoot the required 
amount to save time.

-- TIME: Don't grab the old building key.  Don't even hoist Sheva up either of 
the ladders.  Simply run by them.

-- TIME: Don't enter the building along the way to gain the extra treasure 
inside.

-- TIME: Walk toward the fence off to the left before entering the building 
with Allyson then aim upward and toss a hand grenade behind the locked gate 
behind the fence and the explosion will likely break the lock so a character 
can kick through it after fighting Allyson.  Kick through the door later and 
the characters can fight a few of the Majini early as they move down the 
alleyway behind the gate.

-- TIME: When Allyson appears, shoot her with the M29 magnum twice - once to 
kill her then once to kill the Cephalo that spawns from her.  To hell with 
time-consuming flash explosives and instant kill melees gained from random leg 
stuns.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Defeat most of the Majini that try to enter the room after 
defeating Allyson to secure the kill amount for this chapter.  Kills can still 
be gained on the rats and crows at the Abandoned Building however.

== Abandoned Building ==

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Toss a flash grenade or shoot a flash round at the rates 
along the twisting hallways that lead to the stairs where the black slime drips 
from the ceiling to gain some extra kills.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: A player can aim toward the water tower where the BSAA 
emblem is in the Abandoned building and shoot a flash round toward it to kill 
off the crows that fly in the air for extra kills.

== Furnace Facility ==

-- TIME: Right after the cutscene, while the characters are in the hall facing 
Uroboros, fire a rocket at the boss to instantly end the battle.

Recommended Weapons:

M29 magnum
PSG-1 rifle
Grenade Launcher w/explosive rounds and electric rounds
Hand Grenades
Flash Grenades/Flash Rounds
Rocket Launcher

== Storage Facility ==

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Toss a flash grenade or shoot a flash round at the rats in 
the back of the room for some extra kills.

-- TIME: Don't even collect anything.  Run to the door then exit the area.

== The Bridge ==

-- TIME: After moving past the first C4 tripwire, toss a flash grenade at the 
Majini with the crossbow behind the crates up ahead to keep him from running 
toward the ladder.  Shoot all the Majini with a magnum while they are stunned.

-- TIME: Toss a flash grenade or shoot a flash round at the plagas Adjule that 
appears then fire explosive rounds at the rest of the Adjules.

-- TIME: Use a combination of explosive rounds and the magnum to defeat the 
Adjules, Majini and Big Man Majini.  Toss a flash grenade into the open area to 
blind the Majini with crossbows and cocktails then quickly shoot them with the 
magnum or a rifle.

-- TIME: After hopping over the gap in the bridge, fire a rocket from the 
rocket launcher directly at the truck instead of shooting the nearby red 
barrel.  The truck will crash faster.  Simply run to the left of it as it 
slides by to save time.

-- TIME: Toss a hand grenade or shoot an explosive round at each wave of 
Adjules in the sewer tunnel.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Toss a flash grenade or shoot a flash round at the rats near 
the exit door in the sewer tunnel for some extra kills.

== Docks ==

-- TIME: In the waterway area where the Kipepeos first spawn, run by all the 
Kipepeos as they begin to spawn then shoot the lock on the door at with a 
magnum.  Kick through the door then rush into the tunnel.  Turn back around 
while they are all spawned then throw a flash grenade or shoot a flash round to 
defeat them all at once.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Toss a flash grenade or shoot a flash round at the rats in 
the sewer tunnel for some extra kills.

-- TIME: When approaching the door with the lock in the marketplace area, toss 
a hand grenade toward the door while running up to it to break the lock quicker 
so your main character can kick it open after the explosion without having to 
aim and shoot the lock.  Don't enter the building from the window in the back 
since that will take longer.

-- TIME: Use explosive rounds to easily defeat the grouped Majini when they 
move down the street in the area where Kirk appears in the helicopter.  It's a 
good idea to use the rifle for some of the more distant Majini.

== Shanty Town ==

-- TIME: At the beginning, kick through the blue door and run right by the 
building then move up the path ahead.  Don't even worry about the Majini in the 
first building.

-- TIME: Fire the rocket launcher or fire an explosive round at the Majini that 
move down the stairs from the second building.  Try to destroy the wooden door 
at the top with the same blast to avoid having to kick through it along the 
way.

-- TIME: When the characters reach the locked door that Sheva normally has to 
unlock from the other side, aim toward it with the grenade launcher then shoot 
the extreme bottom portion of the door with an electric round from the current 
side to break the padlock on the other side.  The laser of the grenade launcher 
must point toward the very bottom of the door and it must be in the center.  
Kick through the door and skip the Majini on the top floor of the building.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Be sure to fight the Majini outside the building for the 
extra kills.

-- TIME: After the cutscene where the Chainsaw Majini appears, fire a rocket 
from the rocket launcher at him.  Turn back around and shoot some of the Majini 
that jump over the cars below the stairs for some extra kills.  Don't forget to 
grab the key from the Chainsaw Majini's body; it's easy to do while in a hurry.

== Train Yard ==

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: A player can toss a flash grenade or shoot a flash round at 
the crows that are perched on the large metal crate near the building for extra 
kills.  They can also be shot out of the air, but this will require more work 
obviously.

-- DEATHS: Make sure not to fail any of the commands during the cutscene that 
plays after stepping beyond the gate.  If you fail then choose not to continue 
and start over to keep deaths at 0.  The following list the commands for the 
cutscene:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
-> COMMAND INPUT 1 (Chris)

Sequence: A Majini suddenly leaps into the air from behind a tree while on a 
          bike and flies toward the characters with a chain ready to hit them 
          but Chris turns to push Sheva out of the way.

Type:     Single Button

Command:  Dodge

-> COMMAND INPUT 2 (Sheva)

Sequence: As the Majini on the motorcycle drags Chris away while he is caught 
          on the chain, Sheva aims her guns carefully and fires at the chain to
          break it and free Chris.

Type:     Single Button

Command:  Fire

-> COMMAND INPUT 1 (Both)

Sequence: Two Majini on motorcycles drive straight toward the characters but as 
          the characters prepare to dodge.

Type:     Two buttons

Command:  Dodge

Recommended Weapons:

M29 magnum
PSG-1 rifle
Flash Grenades
Rocket Launcher
Mixed Red and Green Herb or First Aid Spray

-- TIME: Arm a grenade launcher and use explosive rounds to quickly kill the 
Adjules.

-- TIME: Have a mixed herb ready then fall onto the mine cart without shooting 
the C4. Take the damage from the first C4 hit then heal and run to the end then 
exit.

-- TIME In the dark cave, equip the M29 magnum then shoot each Majini and the 
Cephalo that spawns from it very quickly; use two quick shots.  Instant kill 
melees take too long.

-- TIME: When the characters reach the lit-up cave portion of the mines, shoot 
a few Majini on the ground level then run directly toward the ladder.  Climb up 
to the third floor via the right side then fight off a few Majini.  Move 
through the middle tunnel then toss a flash grenade at the three Majini at the 
end.  This will cause the one with dynamite to explode and kill the one by him 
along with himself, so just shoot the other then step onto the elevator.

-- TIME: Use the PSG-1 rifle to shoot many of the Majini near the mountainside 
while in the building at the Mining Area.  Wait until the Majini stop moving 
toward the gatling gun (should be three) then quickly exit the building. And 
continue toward the mountainside ahead.

-- TIME: Don't boost Sheva up the side of the mountain.  Stay together then 
race up the mountain while shooting Majini.  Carry some healing items with your 
characters since the dynamite can take off quite a bit.  Push the crate on the 
very top of the mountain a bit early after defeating the first group of 
surrounding Majini.  A player does not have to defeat all the Majini on the 
mountainside in order to satisfy the kill amount for the stage is most of the 
Majini up until this point have been defeated.

POPOKARIMU BOSS

-- TIME: Toss a flash grenade at the ground when the Popokarimu boss battle 
begins to instantly knock him out of the air and stun him.  Run directly over 
to the back of his tail then shoot the red fleshy portion with the rocket 
launcher to defeat him.

-- ACCURACY: With the number of bullets that will need to be shot during the 
first portion of this stage, it's rather hard to maintain a good accuracy at 
that time.  Aim for the Majini's motorcycles and shoot to make them explode 
instantly.

During the Ndesu fight is basically when a player can make up for all the 
missed shots.  Try to focus on hitting Ndesu as much as possible and be a bit 
hesitant in shooting too much when he is at a distance.  For the most part, a 
player shouldn't have any problem in achieving around 70% accuracy for the 
chapter.

-- TIME: Time is really only a factor in this chapter during the Ndesu fight. 
Try to focus on his plagas as much as possible and be sure to focus all 
firepower on his big plaga when it moves out of his back.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED:  You'll have no problem gaining the require kill amount.  
Make sure to attempt to defeat all Motorcycle Majini most of all.

-- DEATHS: Death can be one of the biggest issues during the Ndesu fight, 
especially on higher difficulties.  DON'T continue if you die.  Simply choose 
"No" then start from the checkpoint of the Ndesu fight after loading your saved 
game again.  To avoid having to load up a game, choose to restart if the jeep's 
health is incredibly low during the battle.

Recommended Weapons:

PSG-1 rifle (for partner mainly)

--> ACCURACY

-- ACCURACY: Toss a flash grenade at some of the groups of Wetland Majini in 
this stage to stun them all then quickly shoot them with the M29 magnum to 
easily defeat them with little hassle while they are blinded.

-- TIME: When docking the boat at any area, drive at full speed directly toward 
the wooden dock and watch for the "Get Out" command then immediately press the 
action button to dock quickly in order to save time.

-- TIME: Obviously, you don't want to collect any of the extra pickups such as 
the rocket launcher or venture out to the chicken island in the middle of the 
lake.

-- TIME: Immediately pick up the Beast Slate from the first area then step back 
on the boat.  Drive to the west portion to collect the Warrior Slate.

-- TIME/ENEMIES ROUTED: Fight off the Wetland Majini on the way to obtaining 
the Warrior Slate in the northwest house.  Shoot them on the way to the 
building then shoot them while exiting the building and make sure the battle 
music stops before leaving in order to confirm that all have been defeated.

-- TIME: Make sure that the AI partner has a rifle before leaving on the boat 
so that character can easily shoot the Majini on the high platform while 
leaving the Warrior Slate area.

-- TIME: Drive to the east then collect the Raptor Slate next.  Finish off the 
crocodile that blocks the path in the far east by shooting him with a magnum. 
Fight off the Wetland Majini like normal, collect the Raptor Slate then exit 
the area and make your way to the Shaman Slate in the north.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: The chicken in the area with the Shaman Slate can be 
defeated for an extra kill and the chickens at the chicken island can all be 
defeated for extra kills.  Toss a flash grenade at a chicken to kill it easily.

-- TIME/ENEMIES ROUTED: Immediately boost Sheva up to the right tower in order 
to collect the Shaman Slate.  Use a combination of the M29 magnum and the 
grenade launcher with explosive rounds to quickly defeat the Wetland Majini 
that attack.  Use grenade rounds for grouped Wetland Majini and the magnum for 
single Wetland Majini.  Toss a flash grenade at the Duvalia when it spawns from 
a Wetland Majini.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: You'll need to use a rifle to take out the Majini on the 
tower that overlooks the waterway, or simply run by him to save time.  Either 
way, toss flash grenades at the crows along the first few tree branches while 
moving down the waterway then have a flash grenade ready to kill off the crows 
on the dead BSAA soldier body down the right path in the Village.

-- TIME: Rush toward the area with the crank in the northeast section of the 
Village then round the corner and immediately shoot the Majini and the Giant 
Majini with the M29 magnum.  Use the piercing fire to shoot through the Majini 
and hit the Giant Majini.  Climb to the raised area and instruct the AI partner 
to use the crank.  Stand near the hill and shoot the Majini as they jump on top 
of the raised area.  Let them come to you for the most part.  Only drop when 
they stop appearing as much then kill off the stragglers on the way to the 
bridge.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: The two snakes inside the pots on the floor of the north 
building on the other side of the bridge can be defeated for extra kills.

Recommended Weapons:

M29 magnum
PSG-1 rifle
Grenade Launcher w/explosive rounds
Proximity Bombs
Hand Grenades
Flash Grenades

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: There are a vast majority of enemies in this chapter, so a 
player can easily afford to leave the Control Facility and the Docks early if 
all other enemies are defeated in other areas.

-- TIME: When the characters reach the railing the overlooks the Execution 
Ground, take out the PSG-1 rifle and shoot the Majini with explosive arrows on 
the north tower then shoot the other Majini with explosive arrows on the 
walkway to the south.  Another Majini with explosive arrows will exit the 
tunnel to the east so be ready to shoot him as well.  Shoot as many Wetland 
Majini with the rifle as you can then fall down the ladder.  Arm the magnum and 
shoot the rest of the Majini that appear along the way to the gap that the 
characters have to leap across.  Toss flash grenades to stun the Majini then 
shoot them if they ever start to dodge too much.  Be ready for Kipepeo 
spawnings as well by aiming upward and shooting at them or tossing a flash 
grenade at that time.

-- TIME: Order the AI partner to turn to the crank then have a flash grenade 
ready to toss at the Wetland Majini as they arrive.  Shoot them with the magnum 
until they start to mount up then toss a flash grenade at them to stun them and 
shoot them with the M29 magnum.  A grenade launcher with explosive rounds can 
be used at this point as well.

-- TIME: The raft dodge command will always be L1+R1/LT+RT on normal but it 
will cycle between L1+R1/LT+RT and []+X/X+A on higher difficulties.  Quickly 
climb off the raft once it nears the end.  Don't wait for it to stop.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Kill the snakes at the camp site for some extra enemy kills. 
At the camp site, arm flash grenades and toss one into the tall patch of grass 
to the right at the beginning then toss another into the tall patch of grass 
past the middle oil drum.  The snakes are closest to the north end of each 
patch of grass.  Make sure the cutscene plays before tossing the first flash 
grenade.

== Refinery ==

-- TIME: Take out the rifle and shoot the Majini with crossbows on the left and 
right towers.  Fall down the ladder then rush ahead and wait for the Majini to 
pile up then shoot them with an explosive round.  One extra Majini appears on 
the south high platform so shoot him whenever your character move up to the 
next high area.  A player can always use flash grenades to blind the Majini at 
the Refinery if they become too numerous then shoot them with the magnum while 
they are stunned.  

-- TIME: Rotate the north valve handle first by moving up the south set of 
stairs and using the zipline to ride over to it.  Defeat the Chainsaw Majini 
(blue pants) with a rocket launcher.

-- TIME: Order the partner to rotate the middle valve handle to turn off the 
flames that block the way to the northwest platform then quickly drop down the 
side and wait for the Majini to appear on the north side then quickly shoot 
them all with the magnum after the cutscene.  Be sure to shoot the one with the 
crossbow on the high platform.  Climb up to the high platform and use the 
zipline to ride across to the south valve handle.  Rotate the south valve while 
the Chainsaw Majini with red pants moves toward the character.  Run from him 
and don't fight him to save time.  Move up the middle set of the stairs to the 
east.

-- TIME: Have a grenade launcher with explosive rounds ready to shoot the group 
of Majini that move out of the corner at the end of the east walkway.  The AI 
partner will likely be further behind your character if you chose to run from 
the Chainsaw Majini but wait by the exit door and the partner will catch up 
before the Chainsaw Majini gets to the door.

== Control Facility ==

-- TIME: The first group of Majini at the Control Facility can all be easily 
defeated with a magnum.  Stand by the north window (break it with the knife) 
and wait for the second wave.  Once they appear, fire at them through the 
window opening.  More Majini will climb the gate on the east side, so turn to 
deal with them and fire at any more than move through the north window, 
including the two Big Man Majini.

-- TIME: Constantly move ahead on the second floor of the Control Facility and 
fire at the Majini with crossbows as your main character moves near them.  
Proximity Bombs can be placed along the second floor walkway to defeat some of 
the Majini that will appear in the final wave a bit earlier than usual.  Hop 
down to the door at the end.

-- TIME: Arm the rifle when the final wave of Majini appear and shoot them from 
a distance until Josh disables the lock on the door.  It's best to go ahead and 
climb back up to the first high platform to get a better view.  The final wave 
will appear shortly after Josh makes his way to the controls and says "Dammit, 
is everything locked down!?"  The Chainsaw Majini will most likely make his way 
near the high walkway so take out the rocket launcher and blast him or shoot 
him with the magnum to quickly finish him off.

== Docks ==

-- TIME: Place a Proximity Bomb in the following place at the Docks:

a) A little bit away from the front portion of the iron gate next to where the 
AI partner stand near the railing to look at the boat up ahead.

b) At the top or middle of the first set of stairs along the way to the boat.

After the cutscene, arm some hand grenades and toss them at each wave of Majini 
along the way that don't get hit by proximity bombs.  The grenade launcher with 
explosive rounds can work well too, but it takes slightly less damage leaving 
some Majini alive after the explosion at times.  Take out the M29 magnum and 
shoot the Big Man Majini in the third wave of enemies (the one with Adjules).  
Don't worry about the Majini with dynamite on the high towers and gas tanks; 
simply run right by them.

Recommended Weapons:

M29 magnum
PSG-1 rifle
Flash Grenades/Flash Rounds

== Drilling Facilities ==

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Arm a flash grenade and toss it into the water at the 
beginning to make the Majini on the right boat drop his cocktail and burn his 
partner and himself.  Take out the PSG-1 rifle and shoot the Majini in the 
other boat.  If the cocktail Majini don't drop their cocktails then the flash 
grenade will at least blind them all to where you can easily shoot them.

-- ACCURACY: Only shoot explosive barrels and canisters along the way to the 
first docking area since there is always a Majini standing near them.

-- TIME: When the boat docks for the first time, get off and arm the rifle then 
shoot the Kipepeo and Majini that attack.  A flash grenade doesn't seem to work 
that well here.  Shoot the closest explosive canisters on the back side of the 
area to finish off the Majini with cocktails up above.

-- TIME: After pulling the lever, quick turn and arm the rifle then shoot the 
approaching Kipepeo enemies and Majini along the high walkway that are armed 
with dynamite.  Try to shoot an explosive canister near the dynamite Majini if 
possible.  A flash grenade can be thrown to get rid of the Kipepeo enemies very 
quickly, but the rifle works just as well really.  Run back to the boat and 
immediately get on the boat without shooting any Majini up ahead early.

-- ACCURACY: For the second boat ride, focus mainly on shooting red barrels.  
Only shoot Majini if they are very close while the boat approaches to maintain 
accuracy.

-- TIME: The characters will still need to hide behind the cover wall to avoid 
the gatling gun fire in the second docking area.  Don't stand back and attempt 
to shoot every single Majini from the cover area.  Shoot only the ones with 
crossbows and cocktails before approaching the back area to save time.

-- TIME: Immediately run toward a lever in the back then make the AI partner 
grapple one lever then leap across the gap in the middle and pull the other 
one.  Arm some flash grenades and run back to the boat.  When Kipepeos appear, 
toss a flash grenade below them.  Don't spend much time with them if the 
majority of other enemies in this stage have been killed.  Toss a flash grenade 
at the first wave along the way to the boat then get on the boat and leave 
behind the rest.  Some of them can be shot or finished with a flash grenade as 
the boat departs.

== Patrol Boat ==

IRVING BOSS

-- TIME: On the Patrol Boat, hit Irving with a rocket from the rocket launcher. 
Hit him anywhere on his creature body to make him immediately yell and move up 
under the water; it's best to aim for his weak spot on his head then fire the 
rocket and it will hit him in his body as he swims.  When he reveals his true 
body, fire at rocket directly at his true body to finish off the boss.  This 
second rocket shot is the hardest because the shot must be direct to finish him 
off, so restart if necessary.  Right when he appears for the second time, his 
true body will always move to the left at the start so aim a little to the left 
and then shoot.

Recommended Weapons

M29 magnum
PSG-1 rifle
Grenade Launcher w/explosive rounds
Flash Grenades (bring two sets) or Flash Rounds (make sure they kill or blind 
something for accuracy purposes)

--> TIME

-- TIME/ENEMIES ROUTED: Use flash grenades to take out any groups of Bui kichwa 
in this chapter.  You'll mainly want to use flash grenades on the big grouped 
in the beginning cave.

-- TIME: Approach the first wooden ladder while tossing flash grenades at the 
Bui kichwa at the beginning then climb the ladder.  Don't even activate the Bui 
kichwa appearances further down the tunnel.  If every other enemy is shot, then 
their kills will not be needed.

== Ancient Village ==

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Shoot the spiders along the walls of the Ancient Village 
area to get some extra kills.  There are three along the way to the bridge that 
breaks.  One is found directly after falling from the stairway, one is to the 
left of the casket that can be opened and one is behind an open casket before 
getting to the bridge.

-- TIME: Use a mixture of flash grenades or flash rounds and magnum shots to 
defeat the Wetland Majini and the Bui kichwa after falling through the 
trapdoor.

-- TIME: Drop down the high area outside of the trap area then arm the grenade 
launcher with explosive rounds and shoot the Wetland Majini that attack.  The 
magnum can be used as well but they tend to group so the grenade launcher works 
rather well here.

-- TIME: Turn the crank immediately after fighting off the enemies then run and 
avoid the fireballs and then get past the closing door.  Run immediately to the 
door down the stairs after the cutscene then exit the Ancient Village area.

== Labyrinth ==

-- DEATHS: Make sure not to fail any of the commands during the cutscene 
shortly after entering the Labyrinth area.  If you fail then choose not to 
continue and start over to keep deaths at 0.  The following list the commands 
for the cutscene:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
-> COMMAND INPUT 1 (Both)

Sequence: Chris and Sheva quickly dash down the corridor as the pillars fall.

Type:     Rapid button tap

Command:  Run

Sequence: Chris and Sheva leap over the pit that opens in the floor.

Type:     Single Button

Command:  Jump

-> COMMAND INPUT 7 (Main player [single play] or random player [co-op])

Sequence: While both characters are standing on the other side of the final 
          pit, the ledge along the side falls out from underneath a character 
          and that character has to grab onto the side.

Type:     Two Button Press

Command:  Grab
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Toss flash grenades in the Labyrinth area whenever bats can 
be heard overhead to get some extra kills as the flash explosion knocks them 
out of the air.  It's best to do this in the area with the blue status.

-- TIME: Run straight toward either side of the blue statue in the labyrinth 
and command the partner to pull one chain then quickly run to the next chain. 
Don't grab the treasure to save time!  Exit via the east end instead of the 
south to continue ahead.

-- TIME: Arm the rifle when fighting the first group of Majini in the Labyrinth 
then shoot the ones with the explosive arrows on the stairs and the high ledge 
first then shoot them remainder of them with explosive rounds from the grenade 
launcher as they move around the corner to to the right.  A second wave will 
appear after the first initial wave.

-- TIME: Command the AI partner to grapple the top floor purple statue then run 
below and toss a flash grenade as the first few Bui kichwa that emerge from the 
ground.  Pull the chain while the enemies appear and stay in ready status so 
that the partner will run back to the chain instead of coming to join your main 
character.  Fight off the Majini and Bui kichwa afterward and try to defeat 
most of them.  It's very possible to leave some and still get the required 
number of enemy kills even if you skipped some of the Bui kichwa in the cave 
area at the beginning though if the majority of other enemies have been killed.

POPOKARIMU BOSS

-- TIME: When the Popokarimu boss appears after pulling the chains of the red 
statue, run right by him and run up the stairs.  Run all way to the exit door.  
Be sure to press the precise button commands that appear on the screen in order 
to dodge his attack or suffer instant death.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Right before moving up the second set of stairs at the 
beginning, toss a flash grenade at the ground below the overhead arch to kill 
the bats that hang overhead.

-- TIME: Don't go back to the door and place the emblems on the door for this 
part. Only place them once all of them are collected.

-- TIME: Arm a rocket launcher and look toward the northwest light pillar.  
Find the side of the wall in front of the pillar that has a small opening on 
it.  Fire the rocket so that it hits the lit-up portion of the wall behind the 
torch near that opening and the explosion will hit the Majini behind the wall. 
A grenade launcher with explosive rounds can be used to hit the Majini behind 
the northwest pillar as well.

-- TIME: The northeast pillar can be deactivated with a rocket launcher as 
well.  Aim toward the pillar then find the torch on the east side then aim at 
the lit up wall behind the torch and fire the rocket to hit the Majini that is 
controlling the light pillar and deactivate that light pillar.  This can only 
be done with a rocket launcher until a character moves up the wooden walkway 
close to the pillar.

-- TIME: Arm a rifle before stepping into the west area with the sea emblem 
then shoot all of the Wetland Majini with explosive arrows on the top platform. 
Enter the area then arm the rifle again and shoot the Majini as they move down 
the stairs.

-- TIME: A Proximity bomb can be placed below the damaged portion of the north 
wall (with the torch on the back portion of the cave wall above) in order to 
kill the torch Majini that hops down from it after collecting the sea emblem.  
Place the bomb on the path that leads toward the center walkway and not 
directly below the wall.

-- TIME: Shoot both Giant Majini in the west and northwest area with the rocket 
launcher or a magnum.

-- TIME: Give Sheva a magnum before boosting her over to the area with the sky 
emblem. Arm the rocket launcher and be ready to fire at the Giant Majini as he 
falls down the ledge in the north.

-- TIME: When moving into the east area with the Earth emblem, enter from the 
second floor by moving across the path to the east of the area with the sky 
emblem.  After killing off the Wetland Majini and obtaining the emblem, fall 
off the second floor walkway back up the stairs instead of moving through the 
tunnel to save time then rush to the middle door and place the emblems on the 
door.

== Pyramid ==

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: At the beginning of the pyramid area, toss a flash grenade 
to defeat the snake and the spider that crawls along the floor.  Find the 
second spider in the middle of the stairs then shoot it as well.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: In the third puzzle room a player can enter the north room 
and use a flash grenade to defeat the Bui kichwa enemies that appear.  This is 
really not needed and takes up extra time though since there are only two.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Open the chest in the third puzzle room and toss a flash 
grenade at the vast group of Bui kichwa enemies to gain quite a few kills for 
this chapter.  Be sure to do this in order to for sure get the require amount 
of kills for this chapter.

Flash Grenade/Flash Rounds

== Underground Garden ==

-- TIME: At the start of the Underground Garden area, simply run up the stairs 
that lead to the Progenitor flowers then run down the opposite set of the 
stairs and then open the door at the end of the path ahead.  Don't stop to 
collect anything.

== Progenitor Virus House ==

-- TIME: Don't make any stops along the way and kick through doors all up until 
the characters get to the room with the caged animals.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Kill all the animals inside the cages in the holding area of 
the Progenitor Virus House by tossing flash grenades at them or shooting flash 
rounds nearby them.  You'll be a heartless bastard for killing innocent caged 
animals, but you'll gain the majority of the required kill amount for this 
chapter in this very room by being so cruel.

-- TIME: Fire a nitrogen round at each Licker then shoot it with any weapon to 
shatter it.

-- TIME/ENEMIES ROUTED: In the holding area with Lickers run to the door and 
kick it open the kick the next door with the partner assist command.  Who care 
if your character alert them since time of the essence.  Place at least one or 
two proximity bombs in the hallway that leads to the elevator (place them far 
apart to avoid having them set each other off) then call the elevator by using 
the button next to it.  The Proximity bombs will give your characters the 
required kill amount for sure if the two Lickers and caged animals were 
finished earlier, so just get inside the elevator once it open and leave.  Use 
nitrogen rounds if the Lickers ever get too close to the elevator and fire with 
any weapon to shatter them.

== Experimental Facility ==

U-8 BOSS

-- DEATHS: Make sure not to fail the command during the introduction cutscene 
to the U-8 fight.  If you fail then choose not to continue and start over to 
keep deaths at 0.  The following list the command for the cutscene:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Sequence: U-8 swings at Chris and Sheva with its right pincher arm.

Type:     Two buttons

Command:  Dodge
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

-- TIME: During the start of the U-8 battle, take out the rocket launcher and 
aim directly at U-8's mouth while he has it open at the beginning then shoot a 
rocket directly into his mouth to finish him on normal mode.  On Professional 
mode, it will take two rockets to the mouth to finish him off.  He's severely 
weakened after one rocket though, so a few magnum shots will finish him also.

Recommended Weapons:

M29 magnum
PSG-1 rifle
Grenade Launcher w/nitrogen rounds.
Rocket Launcher
Flash grenade/rounds
Hand Grenades

== Missile Area: First Floor ==

-- TIME: Don't spend too much time worrying about taking cover in the first 
area with Base Majini.  Simply run down the stairs in the first area and toss a 
hand grenade at the first three.  Take out the rifle and shoot any survivors.  
Move on ahead and aim the rifle at the door then shoot the Base Majini as they 
open the door to enter the room.

-- TIME: In the second area, immediately take out the rifle and shoot the Base 
Majini behind the closest set of metal crates then take cover behind that set 
of crates.  Pop up and shoot the rest of the Base Majini quickly.  Don't worry 
about triggering the single Base Majini that moves down the broken staircase in 
the side room to the left.  You'll get your kill amount without having to 
defeat him.

-- TIME: In the third area with Base Majini, move down the hall with the magnum 
equipped then quickly shoot the closest Base Majini behind the metal crates 
outside the hall.  Carefully aim at the Majini with the stun rod that moves 
down the stairs and shoot him twice - once to kill the Majini and the second 
time to kill the Cephalo that spawns from him.  Take out the rifle and shoot 
the other two Base Majini when they pop up from behind the railing up ahead.

-- TIME:  Move up the right set of stairs with the rifle equipped then shoot 
the Base Majini that can be seen.  Look toward the very back of the area while 
still on the stairs and find the explosive canister on the opposite side of the 
room.  It can just barely be seen through the railings if you stand in the 
middle of the right set of stairs and look toward the back of the room with the 
rifle.  Shoot that explosive canister to take out the entire crowd of Majini 
with machine guns and Majini with stun rods.  Quickly shoot the other Majini 
with the machine gun up the stairs then exit the area.

-- TIME In the area with the Lickers, a character MUST defeat them in order to 
satisfy the amount of kills for this chapter if the upcoming Base Majini 
conveyor belt battle is skipped.  Use Nitrogen Rounds to freeze them then 
shatter them with any gun.  On an actual timed run, you'll want to simply run 
by the Lickers and reach the door at the end.

-- TIME: While on the high railing in the room with the conveyor belts, run to 
the far end with the ladder but DON'T drop just yet.  There are two Majini 
below that will call others to your attention but they can be defeated quickly 
to where the battle below can be avoided.  Take out a hand grenade and toss it 
down at the Majini with the metal mask right below the ladder.  Toss it so that 
it hits him and makes him explode in the direct hit range.  QUICKLY, while the 
hand grenade bounces, take out the rifle and aim at the Majini on the bottom 
floor along the far east side then shoot him in the head before he fully 
finishes yelling.  This will cancel the battle where the Base Majini attack 
below.  Remember that you can restart and try again from the top walkway if the 
Base Majin are alerted.

-- TIME Run along the middle portions of all conveyor belts to move faster 
along them.

-- TIME: Shoot the Majini on the high walkways before getting on the second 
conveyor belt.  Stay along the middle portion of the conveyor belt to keep from 
moving backward the whole time.  Shoot the explosive canisters as much as 
possible and be wary of the Majini on the high walkway, especially the two with 
pipe bombs at the end - shoot them as soon as possible.  If any Majini with 
metal shields ever get too close to your characters then shoot them with 
nitrogen rounds to freeze the Majini then shatter them with gunfire.

-- TIME: Shoot the Reaper with the rocket launcher right when he appears.  Be 
careful about running too close to the area where he drops to avoid getting hit 
by the rocket blast radius.

-- TIME: Right after pulling the lever to turn on the conveyor belt with test 
subjects on it, hop off the side then wait for the first set of metal crates to 
move by. Run as fast you can to the east along the conveyor belt then quickly 
run to the left just as your main character passes by the railing to the left 
to reach the end without having to go the long way around; your character will 
make it past the railing before the metal crates move down the conveyor belt.  
Climb up onto the platform then exit the area like normal.  The AI partner can 
sometimes screw up this trick.

UROBOROS MKONO BOSS

-- TIME: Right at the beginning of the battle with Uroboros Mkono, take out the 
rocket launcher then fire a rocket directly at it to finish off the Uroboros 
with a single shot and end the chapter.

Recommended Weapons:

M29 magnum

Rocket Launcher
Grenade Launcher w/nitrogen rounds
Flash grenade/flash rounds
M92F handgun (for AI partner)

== Experimental Facility ==

-- TIME: Run through the open door in the room where Uroboros Mkono was fought 
in the last chapter and move toward the ladder to the left then climb the 
ladder and follow the hall to the right then exit the area.  Don't collect any 
pickups to save time.

== Missile Area: Second Floor ==

-- TIME: Take cover and shoot the Base Majini with machine guns in the Second 
Floor Missile Area like normal.

-- TIME: Arm the rocket launcher and shoot any possible Reapers that fall from 
the eggs attached to the ceiling.

-- TIME: Remember that a player has to enter the room to the left of the lift 
in order to pull a lever inside that will activate the lever to the lift.  Make 
the AI partner control the lever then get on the lift.  Arm the rifle and shoot 
the Majini with the machine gun on the far walkway off to the right while the 
lift moves across.  Arm the grenade launcher with nitrogen rounds then shoot 
and freeze both Majini with metal shields on the opposite side and shatter them 
with gunfire to finish them without hassle and also cancel their Cephalo 
spawning.

-- TIME: The Majini with rocket launchers and stun rods can be taken down by 
using a rifle as usual.  Have a flash grenade or flash round ready for the 
Cephalo that two of them will spawn.

-- TIME: When approaching the office, make the AI partner open the door to the 
office by shouting the "Go" command then quickly fire a nitrogen round at the 
three Majini inside the office to freeze them all.  Shatter them with weapon 
fire then continue on.

== Moving Platform ==

-- TIME/ACCURACY: While on the moving platform, only shoot the Majini with near 
the levers to save on both time and accuracy.  The first Majini that holds a 
lever is on an east platform and the second Majini that holds a lever is on a 
west platform.

-- TIME After both Majini are shot, once the platform rises to the top, a 
character can arm the rocket launcher and fire a rocket directly at the group 
of Majini that move along the catwalk up above while they head to the stairs.  
Shoot them through the grated floor of the catwalk.  Other than the explosion 
from a rocket launcher a grenade launcher with explosive rounds will wound them 
a bit.  Use a rifle like normal while taking cover behind the center portion of 
the platform to shoot them once the platform rises all the way otherwise.

== Monarch Room: Entrance ==

-- TIME: Remember that a player has to activate the elevator by pulling a lever 
behind the building in the Monarch Room Entrance before anything else.  Ride 
the elevator up to the catwalk then use freeze rounds to freeze the first two 
Lickers.  Run along the high walkway then freeze and shatter the first Licker 
off to the right that climbs onto the walkway.  Place proximity bombs along the 
walkway and then place a few along the catwalk.  That leads to the crate.  
Begin to push the crate and listen as the explosions go off.  Try to push it as 
far as you can then only turn to fight the Lickers when they get too close.  
Freeze them with nitrogen rounds then shatter them with gunshots.

== Monarch Room ==

JILL AND WESKER BOSS

-- TIME: When the battle with Jill and Wesker begins, immediately run to the 
door off to the right and examine it to trigger the cutscene where Wesker will 
kick your main character through the door.  Run up both sets of stairs in the 
hallway behind the door then arm the rocket launcher and turn around while at 
the top of the second set of stairs.  Wait for Wesker to move around the corner 
after he moves up the first staircase then fire a rocket at him then shoot it 
to make him leave.

NOTE: If Wesker turns and moves back down the staircase and heads toward the 
middle of the Monarch Room then he will leap up to the balcony on the other 
side and come around the way.  It's best to simply restart when he does this in 
order to save time.

NOTE 2: Sometimes Wesker will not lose sight of the characters while rounding 
the stair corner, so the rocket will miss as he dodges.  If he does this then 
it is best to restart instead of running down the corridor to the next corner.

JILL BOSS

-- TIME:

Method 1:

While fighting Jill, arm the grenade launcher with flash rounds and shoot a 
flash round near her to stun her in place from the beginning.  Have the AI 
partner equipped with a handgun then get behind Jill while she is stunned then 
restrain Jill yourself so the AI partner can shoot. Face Jill's legs as she 
gets up and she should rise with her back to your character, so spam the action 
button to restrain her.  Try to restrain her then the AI partner will help out 
by shooting her chest device.  Allow Jill to lie on the ground and don't 
perform a ground tear.  All the rest of the restrains should be performed in 
the same way but your character will have to face her head after the second 
shot in order for her back to be facing your character once she gets up.  
Simply face her head and tap the action button as she gets up to restrain her 
so the AI partner will shoot her chest device.

Entreat her if you must, but restrains should work fine as long as your main 
character faces her head portion.  Keep this pattern up until her chest device 
has been shot 6 times then perform a ground tear to tear it off and end the 
battle.  Ground tears prior to six shots will only screw up the process of 
entreating and restraining her.  It doesn't really make it any quicker by 
performing a ground tear and you'll have to chase after Jill more after dodging 
her counter attack since your character will roll away from her during the 
dodge.  Knife slash Jill or shoot her once with a low powered machine gun to 
make her get up faster.

NOTE: In order to avoid using flash rounds at all, move down the left staircase 
right as the battle starts and tap the action button to quickly entreat Jill 
while playing as Chris and she will stagger as she runs directly ahead to where 
she can be easily restrained.  This command will only appear for a slight 
second if you're extremely fast in moving down the left set of stairs.

The key part to getting through this battle quickly is to know which way she 
will turn after each knockdown so your character can quickly restrain her.  
Face her legs after shooting the device and throwing her down once then face 
her head after shooting the device for the second time and tossing her down.  
Always face her head for any throw after two shots.  Don't let the AI partner 
attempt to retrain her since the AI partner will only end up annoying the hell 
out of the player with random throws from her front side instead of restrains 
from behind.

Method 2:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ik_xWOejbOs

The player in the next video we have here is quickly restraining Jill at the 
beginning of the battle and allowing the AI partner to shoot the device then 
throw here.  The AI partner is armed with a handgun.  The player is moving 
forward just a bit after the AI partner throws Jill so that the AI partner 
moves behind Jill.

The player uses a flash round to stun Jill so that the AI partner will grab 
her.  Directly after each shot to the device the player shoots another flash 
round at Jill to both stun her and keep the AI partner in place.  The AI 
partner responds with an automatic restraint after the blinding flash each time 
since the AI partner doesn't have time to move.  This method works with both 
characters.

The device only takes 6 shots, so it can be torn off after the sixth shot after 
the AI partner tosses Jill to the floor.  This method actually works extremely 
well and is easy to do and it will definitely help for a better overall time 
with the Jill battle.

Method 3:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4DPhPyL4Bo

As you can see, the player in the video above is running down the left set of 
stairs right as the battle with Jill begins.  If you watch closely, a quick 
"Entreat" command appears since he is meeting Jill right when he reaches the 
bottom of the stairs.  The player is quickly Entreating Jill before she runs 
by.  The Entreat stuns Jill right when she stops.

The player shoots the device while Jill is stunned then quickly shoots her in 
the chest to stagger her.  The player quickly shoots the device and then the 
chest multiple times, one right after the other, to damage the device then 
stagger her with another shot.  The VZ61 machine gun that is used does little 
damage for each body shot so it won't kill Jill.  The staggering shots are also 
keeping the AI partner from grabbing Jill.  Notice how the AI partner only 
grabs Jill once the shots have ceased.  This method can be very hard and the 
beginning Entreat is luck based since Jill will sometimes not run directly 
ahead as the battle starts.

Recommended Weapons

M29 magnum
PSG-1 rifle
Rocket Launcher
Grenade Launcher w/explosive and nitrogen rounds.
Flash Grenades/Flash Rounds

== Ship Deck ==

-- TIME: From the start, turn to the south and shoot the Majini behind the vent 
structure.  He is on a nearby walkway.  Fight off the Majini up ahead as like 
normal and defeat them all for kills.  Remember that the magnum's piercing will 
shoot right through their metal armor.

-- TIME: Climb up to the very top of the nearby tower then shoot the Majini 
near the crane lever on the crane platform to the south to cancel the cage trap 
later on in the level.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Shoot the two Majini that stand on the very top of the crane 
and shoot the Majini above the first ladder that leads to the crane platform.

-- TIME: Walk backwards up the first set of stairs below the tower so that your 
character will be facing the Adjules as they pop out of the crate.  Shoot them 
with explosive rounds from the grenade gun in order to hit them easily.  One of 
the Majini along the stairs will form a Cephalo so prepare to shoot him twice 
with the magnum.

Fire at the Majini and Big Man Majini with the M29 magnum.  One of the Adjules 
will have his plagas revealed, so shoot it with a flash round or toss a flash 
grenade at it.  When the Majini up ahead spawns a Duvalia, take out a flash 
grenade or flash round and use the flash explosive to easily kill the Duvalia.  
He can also be shot with a nitrogen round and shattered to instantly kill the 
Majini without the spawning.  This is the final Majini right before dropping 
from a ladder.

-- TIME/ENEMIES ROUTED: Use the grenade launcher with explosive rounds to 
easily finish off the Adjules that attack while on your way to the exit door in 
the far south.  Be sure to kill all the Adjules in the area, even the one 
behind the lift that can be raised to obtain the 3,000 gold pickup.  He is a 
plagas Adjule so kill him with a flash explosive.

== SHIP HOLD ==

-- TIME: Be sure to request all weapons from the AI partner before entering the 
room with the Majini lookouts. Stand on the walkway and shoot the following 
Majini lookouts in the order displayed below so your characters can avoid all 
the Majini that would normally attack in the room below:

a) The Majini on the walkway directly across from the door.
b) The Majini on the high walkway across from the walkway (look up and to the 
   south).
c) The Majini behind the crates below (left).
d) The Majini behind the crates below (right).
e) The Majini around the side of the walkway to the east.  He's behind the 
   cover wall.  MAKE SURE to take cover behind the wall near him and then pop 
   out and shoot him in the head.  Otherwise, he might notice your characters 
   if a character simply steps out from behind the wall.
f) The Majini that climbs up the ladder from below while the characters are on 
   the east walkway.

Shoot all of the above Majini and the alarm will not go off and your characters 
can easily make it through the room below without having to worry about the 
usual Majini that would normally attack if spotted.

-- TIME: Shoot most of the Majini in the tunnel with the M29 magnum while your 
characters rushes down the tunnel.  The Majini before the last will form a 
Cephalo so shoot him twice the magnum to kill the Majini then the Cephalo.  The 
final Majini that drops from the ladder will form a Duvalia so quickly shoot 
him with a nitrogen round when he falls then shatter him with gunfire to cancel 
the Duvalia spawning.

-- TIME: Arm the rocket launcher then shoot the Gatling Run Majini as he moves 
down the stairs.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: In the area with the rocket launcher Majini, a player can 
fall down to the lower floor BEFORE killing off all the Majini with rocket 
launchers to make Bui kichwa enemies move out of a crate to the right.  This 
can help a player that is lacking kills for this chapter.  Simply use a flash 
grenade or flash round to kill them all with one light explosion.  If you 
skipped out on the cage dropping sequence then you MUST get the Bui kichwa 
kills in order to get the full kill amount needed for an S-rank in kills on 
this chapter.

NOTE: Gaining the required amount of enemy kills for this chapter will increase 
your time taken quite a bit, so you're going to have to give up on a speed run 
if you want the require enemy kills for this chapter.  Enemy kills will 
basically be gained through the Uroboros blobs during the Uroboros Aheri boss 
fight.

== Main Deck ==

-- DEATHS: Make sure not to fail any of the commands during the second 
cutscene.  If you fail then choose not to continue and start over to keep 
deaths at 0.  The following list the commands for the second cutscene:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
-> COMMAND INPUT 1

Sequence: The Uroboros tentacle quickly moves toward the characters as they 
          move up the stairs to the walkway above and it tries to smash them 
          against the wall as they attempt to jump to the right.

Type:     Single button pres/Slightly rapid button press

Command:  Dodge

-> COMMAND INPUT 2

Sequence: The tentacle continues to follow the characters as they run along the 
          walkway then it tries to slap them as the characters attempt to jump 
          and roll.

Type:     Single button press/Slightly rapid button press

Command:  Dodge

-> COMMAND INPUT 3

Sequence: The characters recover from the roll and the tentacle rakes across 
          the top portion of the walkway but the characters jump and roll out 
          of the way again.

Type:     Single button press/Slightly rapid button press

Command:  Dodge

-> COMMAND INPUT 4

Sequence: The characters look up to see a tentacle and quickly jump out of the 
          way of the tentacle as it tries to smash them almost directly after 
          they roll from the last tentacle strike.

Type:     Single button press/Slightly rapid button press

Command:  Dodge

-> COMMAND INPUT 5

Sequence: The characters rush to the end of the walkway and one of them climbs 
          a crate then that character turns to pull the other one up as a 
          tentacle heads for them to smash them against the crate.

Type:     Two button press

Command:  Climb over

-> COMMAND INPUT 6

Sequence: The characters run past the crate as the tentacle continues to 
          follow.  The tentacle races up the stairs after them and tries to 
          smash them against the middle portion of the stairs from overhead as 
          they attempt to jump away from it.

Type:     Rapid button press (much more extended than the last few)

Command:  Run
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

== Bridge ==

-- TIME: To speed up the process of moving through the ship's corridors, fire a 
single flame round at most of the Uroboros tentacles that bar the halls to make 
them retract into the ceiling and allow quick passage through the halls without 
having to take the long way around.  Be sure to dodge the tentacles that move 
through the ceiling by pressing the action button when the dodge prompt 
appears.  On any difficulty the dodge command is always the action button.

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: Shooting the third Uroboros tentacle is basically useless 
since a player needs to move down the opposite hallway with the Majini bodies 
to defeat the Majini there in order to gain a higher kill amount.  Move down 
that hallway then allow the Majini to get up then quickly defeat them with the 
M29 magnum.  Shoot the one that appears from down the hall to the right with a 
nitrogen round to keep him from changing into a Duvalia then shatter him.

== Bridge Deck ==

UROBOROS AHERI BOSS

-- ENEMIES ROUTED: During the fight with Uroboros Aheri, allow the AI partner 
to shoot the tentacles with the PSG-1 rifle while your character aims for them 
with the L.T.D. laser targeting device.  After each laser shot, lay down the 
L.T.D. and fire flame rounds at the Uroboros blobs that land on the platform.  
Incendiary grenades work well also, but flame rounds seem to work better.

The Uroboros blobs in this chapter MUST be defeated in order to gain the 
required kill amount for this chapter.  A player must make Uroboros Aheri 
reveal its central core a total of four times on Normal mode in order to make 
it spawn enough Uroboros blobs to gain the required kill amount for this 
chapter.  And this does take in the fact that your character finished the 
Majini in the hallway while inside the ship.  It is best to NOT fire the L.T.D. 
laser at the Uroboros weak point so as not to end the battle early.

-- ACCURACY: Accuracy will not be decreased while firing a flame round so long 
as the flame rounds (or the fire spread) actually hit an Uroboros blob.  The AI 
partner can work against the player here however since the AI partner can 
easily shoot an Uroboros blob that your character fires at and the flame shot 
will count against your rank if the flame round does not hit anything.  Aim 
carefully and cautiously.

-- TIME: Once Uroboros Aheri's central core weak spot is revealed (for the 
third time), arm the rocket launcher and fire a rocket directly at the central 
core to finish the battle.

Recommended Weapons:

M29 magnum
PSG-1 rifle
Rocket Launcher

== Bridge Deck/Bridge ==

-- TIME: Rush through the first few areas before the characters finish their 
dialogue.

== Engine Room ==

-- TIME: Use the PSG-1 to defeat the Base Majini in the first room.  Shoot them 
from the railing of the first walkway.  Run to the lever to open the first 
bulkhead door then pull it.  While the door opens, take out the M29 magnum to 
shoot Majini on the way to the first door while it opens.  Use the rifle to 
defeat any long range Base Majini.  Begin to shoot the Majini with machine guns 
from behind the bars of the doorway while the door still opens.

-- TIME: Rush into the second room then begin to fire at the Majini that move 
down the left walkway first of all.  Take out the rocket launcher Majini on the 
left walkway and back center walkway most importantly.  Once the Base Majini 
have been thinned out, the characters can move further into the room.  The rest 
of the Base Majini waves will come from the walkway off to the right, so look 
that way to take down the rest of them.  Be right by the levers as the Base 
Majini stop entering the area then pull the levers immediately afterward.

-- TIME: Use the rocket launcher to defeat the two Reapers that attack after 
opening the second bulkhead door.

-- TIME/ENEMIES ROUTED: Aim in between the center of the holes in the floor 
where the Gatling Gun Majini appear in the third room then shoot a rocket in 
between the Gatling Gun Majini to hit them both with one rocket right when they 
appear.  Collect the keycards then immediately exit the room.  Don't even worry 
about the extra Majini that appear along with the Gatling Gun Majini.  If 
you've defeated all the other Majini in this area, then you you'll already have 
a little bit over the amount of enemy kills to skip them.

-- TIME: Rush down the hall after the exiting the final bulkhead room then 
quickly open the door before the character finish their dialogue.

== Hangar ==

WESKER BOSS

-- TIME: Run to the southwest light and turn if off yourself without any help 
from the AI partner.  Depending on what Wesker does at the beginning of this 
battle, he might lose sight of your characters while they stand at the 
southwest light.  You might want to restart and hope for this.  When he loses 
sight of your character, fire a rocket at him then quickly hit him with another 
rocket while he is holding the first.  Run up to him and restrain him while he 
kneels then the AI partner will inject him to finish the battle.

-- DEATHS: Make sure not to fail any of the commands during the cutscene 
following the Wesker fight.  If you fail then choose not to continue and start 
over to keep deaths at 0.  The following list the commands for the cutscene:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
-> COMMAND INPUT 1

Sequence: After Wesker says: "Uroboros will be released into the atmosphere 
          ensuring complete global saturation", he will dash toward both 
          characters and try to impale one of them with his arm.

Type:     Single button press (Possible two button press on Pro mode)

Command:  Dodge

Player:   Both (If a player fails, then that player's character gets impaled 
          with Wesker's arm.)

-> COMMAND INPUT 2

Sequence: When Wesker jumps to the wall and Chris aims his gun up toward Wesker 
          as Wesker prepares to fire his own gun.

Type:     Single button press

Command:  Fire

Player:   Chris

-> COMMAND INPUT 3

Sequence: When Wesker grabs Sheva by the throat and holds her by the neck.

Type:     Left analog shake

Command:  Break Free

Player:   Sheva

-> COMMAND INPUT 4

Sequence: When Sheva turns to shoot Wesker shortly after Chris runs toward the 
          lever in the back of the plane.

Type:     Single button press

Command:  Fire

Player:   Sheva

Special Note: Command Input 4 is kind of worth failing at least once to view 
the unique death that takes place.  Wesker will jump toward Chris and twist his 
neck from overhead before falling.

-> COMMAND INPUT 5

Sequence: Shortly after the flashbacks of Jill and Chris at the Spencer Estate 
          when Sheva prepares to let go of the metal railing as Wesker grapples
          her leg.

Type:     Two buttons

Command:  Help

Player:   Chris

MUTATED WESKER BOSS

NOTE: Don't give AI Sheva any type of weapon for this fight.  Restart and take 
it away if necessary.

-- TIME: It's much faster to finish this area quickly while playing as Chris.  
Anytime before or up until Wesker chases the characters to the end of the rock 
ledge, aim up at the weak rock ledge that a character must shoot to obtain the 
Diamond (Marquise) treasure then shoot it with the rocket launcher to make it 
crumble before Chris has to drop from the ledge.  The rocket launcher explosion 
will hit it more easily than other weapon where one must be precise.

With Chris, immediately after falling, turn to the north (left) then hop over 
to the ledge with the Diamond (Marquise) treasure.  DON'T move over to the 
treasure however, turn around to face Wesker instead.  Wait for him to jump 
onto middle rock that leads to the ledge where your character is and wait for 
him to raise his right arm.  Quickly leap back to the rock that he is on then 
leap back to the starting ledge where Chris dropped.  Quick turn and aim at 
Wesker then fire a rocket at his back weak point to finish the battle.

Just in case, the following is the list of command inputs for the Chris and 
Sheva players during the first part of this fight:  (Using the method above, a 
player should have to make it this far though)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - CHRIS - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

-> COMMAND INPUT 1

Sequence: Chris pushes the boulder.

Type:     Rapid button press

Command:  Push

-> COMMAND INPUT 2

Sequence: Chris begins to lift up on the boulder.

Type:     Left analog rotation

Command:  Push

-> COMMAND INPUT 3

Sequence: Chris begins to punch the boulder.

Type:     Hook

Command:  Rapid button press (random and constantly changing)

-> COMMAND INPUT 4

Sequence: Chris pushes the boulder into the lava lake.

Type:     Ram

Command:  Two button press

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - SHEVA - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

-> COMMAND INPUT

Sequence: Sheva holds onto the side of the ledge and struggles in maintaining 
          her grip.

Type:     Climb Up

Command:  Button Mash

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

-- DEATHS: Make sure not to fail the single command during the cutscene 
following the Mutated Wesker fight.  If you fail then choose not to continue 
and start over to keep deaths at 0.  The following list the command for the 
cutscene:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
-> COMMAND INPUT

Sequence: While the ending cutscene plays, right when Chris and Sheva aim with 
          their rocket launchers.

Type:     Two button press

Command:  Fire
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
