                             NOTE TO THE READER

If you need information on the basics for Resident Evil 5, please refer to my 
original Mercenaries or Mercenaries Reunion guide on GameFAQs.  This guide is 
written with the assumption that you know the basics of The Mercenaries and The 
Mercenaries Reunion.  Basically, you are already familiar with melee killing to 
get a +5 second bonus per kill and you know that bosses need to be saved in 
Mercenaries Reunion to get the highest score.  If you don't know things like 
that then visit my Mercenaries and Mercenaries Reunion guides.

This guide is meant for a player that wants to try to obtain high scores with 
Chris in Resident Evil 5's The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion modes. 
If you want to just get easy SS ranks with Chris in The Mercenaries or The 
Mercenaries Reunion, this guide will still help, but you'd be better off 
checking my original Mercenaries or Mercenaries Reunion guide on GameFAQs.

If you want high scores with Wesker then go to Youtube and learn about his 
Cobra Strike and Dash.  You'll only find information about Uppercuts and 
Straight punches here.

Chris Redfield is the main character in the story mode of Resident Evil 5 and 
also one of the Mercenaries characters in both The Mercenaries and The 
Mercenaries Reunion.  Much like some of the weaker characters in Resident Evil 
4's Mercenaries mode, Chris' weapon assortments makes him a harder character to 
use when compared to some of the other characters in The Mercenaries.

In Resident Evil 5 Mercenaries, Wesker is easily the dominant character for 
reaching a high score with his Cobra Strike head stun melee that can kill 
normal Majini without prior damage and his dash melee that can be used to set 
up multiple melee kills and save melee kills on weakened Majini.  When it comes 
to all character types in The Mercenaries, Chris and Sheva are much more 
limited since they must damage prior to most melees and they both have trouble 
saving melee kills on weakened Majini.  In Mercenaries Reunion, Chris is 
actually one of the hardest characters to play - Sheva is arguably more 
powerful than Chris in Mercenaries Reunion.

All five of the Chris types in The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion are 
useful in their own way and this guide's main focus is to give you an extremely 
detailed look at each of them.  Having played almost no other character but 
Chris Redfield in Resident Evil 5's The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion 
for the past few years, I feel that I can easily say that I know how to use him 
quite well.

To sum it all up, this guide comes from one of the most dedicated Chris 
Redfield players that you will find in the Resident Evil 5 Mercenaries 
community... and one that has been there since the beginning!

================
PLAYING AS CHRIS
================

Playing as Chris is almost like playing a card game in a way - you play the 
cards you receive and take your chances with whatever hand you are dealt.

All Chris types in The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion rely on leg 
stuns at some point.  Some Chris types rely fully on leg stuns in order to 
melee kill.  A Chris player is always at the mercy of luck with a leg stun at 
certain points.  Even if you use the head stun Chris types (Safari Chris and 
Warrior Chris) there will come points where a leg stun will be needed.

With Chris, you take advantage of whatever circumstances you are given and make 
choices based on the current situation.  Sometimes luck will not work in your 
favor but you can redeem yourself later in a run by making a good choice based 
on new developments.  Sometimes luck will be with you a great deal and you can 
completely maximize and take advantage of the choices you are given.

Overall, Chris is a character of luck to some degree, but no matter what type 
of luck you have, Chris players need to have the skill and the knowledge of how 
to use that luck to their advantage or fight their way out of a bad luck 
situation in order to score high with him.

One thing is for sure, Chris takes a lot of patience to play.  Even the most 
skilled players will have to give in to bad luck with leg stuns no matter how 
much experience they have in using him.  A leg stun Chris type such as STARS 
and BSAA can't aggressively attack a crowd by performing stomps from constant 
knockdowns on Majini - he needs that leg stun for an uppercut, but sometimes, 
no matter how many leg shots are made, that leg stun will simply... not 
activate.

==================================
RECOMMENDED CONTROL TYPE FOR CHRIS
==================================

The best control type for using Chris in Mercenaries is subject to opinion, but 
I use control type B.  I started out as a Type D player, but switched over to 
type B after 6 months of playing Mercenaries after seeing the advantages of the 
camera turn.

With the quick camera turn, a player can quickly fire shots through a crowd and 
turn quickly to face Majini that would take longer to turn toward with a simple 
quick turn.  A Chris player needs to be able to respond quickly to a Majini 
that is to his side when one is nearby to avoid an attack or grab and type B or 
type A will give a player that advantage.

The button layout for type A controls keeps me from using it.  The melee and 
firing button are the same button unlike type B controls, so a player can't 
easily stand near a stunned boss and continue to fire before performing a melee 
to finish it off.  A player can hold down on the firing button then release it 
really quick and tap it again to melee the boss while up next to the boss while 
using type A, but type B is so much easier overall since a player can just 
stand next to the boss and weaken the boss with gunfire then tap a different 
button to hit it with a melee.

NOTE: If you plan to play solo mode with any Chris type, type A or type B 
controls are VERY much needed.  Solo mode is unkind to any character without 
the ability to use the camera turn and with Chris, the mode is pure evil 
without the ability to turn very quickly when surrounded by enemies.

==============================================
QUICK CAMERA TURN (Type A and B controls only)
==============================================

The Quick Camera Turn, often called the "Quarter Turn", is a camera exploit 
that can be performed with Type A and B controls.  With A and B control types, 
the camera is controlled with the right thumbstick, so a player can turn the 
thumbstick in any direction in order to rotate the camera in that direction.  
When you press the aiming button while turning the camera your character will 
instantly turn and aim in that direction.

Aiming button for Type A = RT/R1
Aiming button for Type B = LT/L1

A player can perform several Quick Camera Turns in a row while holding any type 
of gun weapon or grenade/egg weapon.  The Quick Camera Turn is performed MUCH 
quicker while holding a grenade or egg weapon.  If you want to see it in 
action, equip a grenade/egg and then hold to the side with the right thumbstick 
then quickly tap the aiming button to make your character turn extremely fast 
to where you might get dizzy from watching the viewpoints as they switch.

A player can also aim with the camera while using type A or B controls.  
Basically, think of the center of the camera as your character's gun laser.  
When you turn the camera to the side then quickly aim, your character will be 
aiming toward the center of that camera angle view.  So, you can turn the 
camera toward the head of a Majini then aim and fire instantly at the Majini's 
head.  The same can be done for any other part of the Majini's body.

========
LAG SHOT
========

The lag shot is a term associated with firing a shot to set up a stun and then 
firing a shot from close range and doing a melee DIRECTLY after firing the 
second shot.  The lag shot is much easier to do in a duo game when lag is 
present.  It can be done without lag, but the combination has to be entered 
very quickly!  The lag shot allows a player to take advantage of an early 
Majini stun and instantly kill a Majini by having a weakening shot and a melee 
performed in one combined sequence.  Here's an example of a lag shot sequence 
with BSAA Chris:

BSAA Chris melee kill (without lag shot)
M92F leg shot -> M92F leg stun shot -> Uppercut

BSAA Chris melee kill (with lag shot)
M92F leg stun shot -> (move close to Majini) -> M92F lag shot + Uppercut

Basically, a player is combining the second shot needed for damage and the 
melee in a near instant combination.  With Type B controls on Xbox, a player 
will want to get a leg stun then rush up and aim and then fire at any portion 
of the Majini with RT then immediately press X afterwards to activate the 
Uppercut.  So basically, the sequence would be done as follows for Type B 
controls:

Melee Kill Sequence: BSAA Chris melee kill (with lag shot)
Actions: M92F leg stun shot -> M92F lag shot + Uppercut
Description: Hold LT then tap RT to fire -> run up to the stunned Majini and 
hold LT then tap RT to fire then IMMEDIATELY press X to activate the uppercut 
right after the shot.

====================================
PLAY DUO MODE AND SOLO MODE AS CHRIS
====================================

-- SOLO MODE

Solo mode pits one player against all stage enemies per stage and it is on the 
difficulty of Normal for the main game.  One player is in charge of keeping the 
full combo with his/her own actions and the player must activate all spawns 
within a stage based on the player's movement and overall killing speed.

One thing that is easily noticeable in solo mode for a Chris player is the 
recovery period for when a Majini falls.  In solo mode, a Majini is more likely 
to stay down on the ground for a good five to six seconds compared to duo 
mode's near instant recovery.  It's often a good idea to ground multiple Majini 
more often in solo with Chris since they will remain on the ground long enough 
to where they can be stomped one right after the other.

-- DUO MODE

Duo mode allows a player to team up with another player and it is on the 
difficulty of Veteran for the main game.  Both players are in charge of keeping 
the combo, so you will have a helping hand once the combo gauge starts to fade. 
Since two players will be performing melee kills, time will often rise faster 
and so will the score in duo play.

In duo mode, enemies will sometimes almost instantly get up from the ground 
once knocked down.  This is very noticeable to a Chris player.  Grounding 
multiple Majini in a row is not always good to do in duo that often since the 
Majini recover quicker - basically, you might ground one Majini with shots then 
ground another and stomp the first only to have the second Majini recover as 
you run toward it, which can cost you time.

VERY IMPORTANT: If you only play one mode all the time, you're going to be bad 
at the other mode in some way due to difficulty adjustment.  It's good to play 
both solo and duo Mercs.  Skills in Mercs are obtained by playing both modes 
and not whoring only one.  If you only play duo, you'll likely remain very 
dependent on a partner and your gameplay will suffer in tense situations 
because of that. If you only play solo, you will not be adjusted to the higher 
level of aggression or lag that you will have to put up with in duo mode.

One problem that I see with several players that only play duo is that they are 
too single enemy focused.  They put all of their attention on one enemy instead 
of quickly spreading damage among all enemies in a crowd.  Solo mode gets so 
tense that a player is forced to weaken multiple enemies since the crowds can 
be much larger.  Because of gameplay such as this it's very important to play 
solo mode to practice.  You don't have to play it for a high score - just play 
it for practice.

===========
PLAY VERSUS
===========

Versus helps to make you quicker at inventory navigation and it can help to 
speed up your gameplay.  Team Survivors and Survivors is the best mode to play 
in order to help speed up your gameplay.  Seconds count when you are forced to 
quickly navigate through an ever-changing inventory like in Versus.  Versus is 
overall really good practice for speed in RE5 gameplay.

Team Slayers and Slayers can be good for learning the enemy spawning per stage. 
It's an excellent way to learn to pick out scripted criticals and plagas also!

=================================================
BSAA, SAFARI OR S.T.A.R.S IN ORIGINAL MERCENARIES
=================================================

Overall, S.T.A.R.S. Chris is easily the best Chris type out of the available 
Chris types in the orignal Mercenaries mode.  He has some sort of projectile 
weapon for all situations.  He is the only Chris with a magnum, he has a quick 
melee setup that only BSAA Chris can rival and he has the possibility of 
nitrogen rounds and flash rounds for his grenade launcher.  Using a machine 
gun, he will get more chances at setting a Majini up for an uppercut melee kill 
and he can can save melee kills on weakened Majini by stunning them with flash 
rounds.  He can often melee kill most bosses also!

Other than his rocket launchers for quick boss killing, Safari Chris has no 
true advantage.  He actually has more flaws than advantages thanks to his high 
critical rate from his handgun, shotgun and his main melee kill setup.  His 
main melee kill combination (headshot + straight) has a chance to not kill 
also.  The straight must hit the front portion of the Majini and even then 
there is still a chance that it might not kill.

BSAA Chris would be just as powerful as S.T.A.R.S. Chris with a magnum, but 
unfortunately he is stuck with only the weakest shotgun in The Mercenaries.  
His main melee kill setup is very easy and he sometimes seems to get easier leg 
stuns when compared to STARS Chris (all leg stuns are random though, so this is 
arguable).  With no magnum or other powered weapon, fighting against plagas 
spawns and bosses are his main downfall.

=============================================
WARRIOR OR HEAVY METAL IN MERCENARIES REUNION
=============================================

When it comes to solo play in Reunion, Warrior has a major advantage over Heavy 
Metal Chris - Warrior Chris has a shotgun that can kill bosses quickly!  Heavy 
Metal Chris has problems stunning and weakening bosses in both solo and duo, 
but with a good partner in duo, he can actually be a better team mate than a 
Warrior Chris partner.

Heavy Metal Chris excels in building time with his stun rod.  He can literally 
melee kill ANY type of enemy in the game because of his stun rod.  If he were 
in the original Mercenaries game, S.T.A.R.S. Wesker would have a definite rival 
for high scoring on Experimental Facility.  Building time with his stun rod 
makes Heavy Metal Chris a good choice for duo Reunion, but you'll still have 
the flaw of not being able to kill bosses quickly, so a partner will need to 
take over for killing bosses or you will have bear down on a boss with intense 
gatling gun firepower in order to kill it.

Warrior Chris is basically a Safari Chris without flaws besides some slight 
problems in stunning a boss with only a shotgun.  He doesn't have any rocket 
launchers for quick boss killing, but his main melee setup (headshot + 
straight) will always kill and Warrior Chris can be quite good for Wetland 
Majini - leg stun shot -> Uppercut.

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

Overall, Chris' straight and his uppercut are his most powerful standing 
melees.  Both of them are easily capable of hitting more than one Majini for 
multiple melee kills.  His stomp takes off 600 damage no matter if it hits an 
enemy while it stands or is on the ground and it can hit multiple Majini rather 
easily as well.  The stomp is his most damaging normal melee - it's easy to set 
up and it's very quick.  Chris has the fastest ground melee in The Mercenaries.

Chris' neck breaker is an instant kill on normal Majini and it cancels plagas 
spawns but it is single kill only and slower than his straight or uppercut, 
which means you should avoid performing it often since it gives very little 
time advantage.  Try to only neck break powerful Majini that require a bunch of 
damage to kill (Torch Majini, Agitator) or neck break scripted Cephalo Majini 
(Majini that will always become a Cephalo unless instant kill meleed).

* Chris can only perform these special leg stun melees in duo mode while paired
  with a Barry or Rebecca partner.

In Mercenaries Reunion, Chris gains the advantage of a more powerful straight 
and uppercut.  His straight takes off 600 damage in Mercenaries Reunion and his 
Uppercut takes off 450 damage.  The raise in uppercut damage does not really 
help out as much as the added straight damage.  Both Warrior and Heavy Metal 
Chris can kill off any normal Majini with a shot to any portion of the body 
along with a straight punch.

The Rising Upper and Hammer Blow melees are special melees that can only be 
performed in duo mode.  Chris needs to have a Barry or Rebecca partner in order 
to perform either of these special melees.  His Rising Upper melee will take 
the place of his uppercut and his Hammer Elbow melee will take the place of his 
neck breaker.

Having special melees with Warrior Chris can be bad in stages with scripted 
plagas however.  Since Warrior Chris will not have his instant kill neck break, 
every scripted plagas in a stage will be activated on his side since he will 
not have a melee to cancel them.  With Heavy Metal Chris, he always has his 
stun rod to cancel scripted plagas.

CHRIS' MELEE PROPERTIES
=======================

-- The table below shows how Chris' melees can hit a Majini

.----------------------------------------------------------.
| Melee Command   | Melee Range                            |
|==========================================================|
| Straight        | Standing/Hits directly ahead           |

| Stab            | Standing/Grounded                      |
'----------------------------------------------------------'

It's very important to know whether Chris' melees will hit standing enemies 
only or standing enemies and grounded enemies.  Melees that hit grounded 
enemies will likely hit the enemy's legs when Chris hits a fallen enemy, 
therefore Chris will have to damage that grounded enemy just a little more when 
compared to a standing hit with that same melee.

Chris' uppercut and his stomp are his best melees to hit grounded enemies.  The 
uppercut will often hit an enemy's legs while an enemy is grounded and take off 
360 damage, which is 400 damage minus 10% for hitting the legs of a Majini.  In 
order to hit a grounded enemy with an uppercut, Chris has to set a Majini up 
for a leg stun and have a damaged Majini below the stunned Majini - basically, 
his uppercut will hit and kill the fallen Majini on the ground while it hits a 
standing Majini.

In order to kill the grounded Majini, it must be weakened enough to where the 
uppercut will kill it, otherwise, the Majini will be raked off the ground by 
Chris' fist and the Majini will fly into the air then hit the ground and get up 
instantly after the fall, which is basically the waste of a melee kill if Chris 
doesn't have a flash explosive to restun it without damaging it.  Chris' Hook 
and his Kick can both hit grounded Majini, though they very much lack range and 
they are both weak.

NOTE: Chris' Hook and Uppercut are both more likely to hit enemies from Chris' 
right side rather than his left.  Be sure to keep this in mind while trying to 
angle his uppercut to hit an enemy.

.------------------------------------------------.
| Melee Command   | Type of Attack               |
|================================================|
| Rising Upper    | Standing/Grounded            |
| Hammer Elbow    | Standing                     |
'------------------------------------------------'

In Mercenaries Reunion, Chris' Rising Upper will hit grounded enemies which 
helps out GREATLY for setting up multiple melee kills.  Since Chris' Rising 
Upper takes off 2000 damage there is no need for damaging a fallen enemy prior 
to performing it.  Sadly, his Hammer Elbow will not hit a grounded enemy but it 
can hit multiple standing enemies.

==============================
MULTI MELEE KILLING WITH CHRIS
==============================

Multi melee killing is when you hit more than one Majini with a melee and kill 
them both in the process.  The game will only display +5 seconds, but if you 
look at the timer in the middle of the screen, you will gain +5 seconds for 
every Majini that is hit with a melee for the blow, so if you hit two Majini, 
you'll gain +10 seconds.

Chris can multi melee kill with any of his melees other than the neck breaker, 
which is single kill only with its grab animation.  It's very helpful to know 
how each melee can hit a Majini.  Refer to the table up above where each melee 
is listed as being able to hit standing or grounded enemies.  It's much easier 
to get a multi melee kill with a melee that can hit grounded enemies.

VERY IMPORTANT: The main goal with each Chris type (especially STARS, BSAA and 
Heavy Metal) is to spread damage across multiple enemies through gunshots that 
are fired at each of them then work all of the weakened enemies into one melee.

Here's a breakdown of how to multi melee kill with each of Chris' melees:

-- Straight (Standing only)

Chris' straight has a random chance at splattering a Majini's head with a 
critical hit much like a handgun.  This can help him to kill multiple Majini at 
the same time with one straight but it's more a stroke of luck than anything.  
The straight punch can hit an undamaged Majini in the process of hitting 
another Majini and actually kill the undamaged Majini through a critical hit to 
head - the critical froma straight is completely random.

Since Chris' straight has the most range out of any of his melees, the straight 
can be a good way to hit weakened Majini.  Chris can easily maneuver around a 
weakened Majini then get a headstun on another and stand near the stunned 
Majini then activate the straight so that it hits both the stunned and weakened 
Majini.  As mentioned above, he can also get random criticals on undamaged 
Majini while hitting a stunned Majini to kill more than one at the same time.

-- Uppercut (Standing and Grounded)

The uppercut is far superior to other melees when it comes to gaining multiple 
melee kills with it.  Since it can hit grounded enemies, Chris can easily hit 
multiple enemies with one uppercut.  You'll actually want to aim his uppercut, 
by stepping to the side of a Majini when one is grounded near another.

Keep in mind that while a Majini is on the ground, Chris is more likely to hit 
the Majini's legs, which takes off 10% less damage.  Chris will be taking off 
360 damage instead of the full 400 damage from an uppercut when he hits a 
grounded Majini most of the time.

Any Chris type can take adantage of the uppercut for setting up multiple melee 
kills.  You need to weaken one Majini and then leg stun another Majini near 
that weakened Majini then perform Chris' uppercut so that his fist hits both of 
them.  If the weakened Majini has fallen near the stunned Majini, Chris' 
uppercut will hit the fallen Majini while it is on the ground - remember that 
the uppercut will take off 360 damage at that time however.

Whenever you have a situation where a grounded Majini is right below a Majini 
that Chris just leg stunned, any Chris type can shoot the grounded Majini to 
damage it enough to where an uppercut will kill it then uppercut the standing 
Majini and melee kill the fallen Majini in the process.  It's so useful to know 
this for BSAA Chris and STARS Chris.  Obviously, you will need to know how much 
damage was delivered to the grounded Majini before doing so though.

VERY IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that Chris' uppercut will mainly hit to his right 
side.  Try to aim all uppercuts so that the Majini that is about to be hit is 
to Chris' right before activating the uppercut melee.

-- Stomp (Standing and Grounded)

The stomp can be just as useful as the uppercut for gaining multiple melee 
kills, but it's not always easy to sep up a multiple stomp most of the time.  
You'll mainly get a multi stomp by chance.  The most common way to set one up 
is to uppercut two Majini that stand in a line (one behind the other) then 
stomp them both.  A player can also stand by one leg stunned Majini and wait as 
another runs behind the stunned Majini then uppercut them both and stomp them 
both afterwards.

Chris can also lure a weakened standing Majini toward a weakened fallen Majini 
then stomp as the standing Majini reaches in to grab so that his foot hits both 
Majini at the same time.  Besides the hilarious site of watching the standing 
Majini fall back with the force of a Redfield boot, you'll gain a multi melee 
kill.

The most important part about hitting multiple grounded Majini with a stomp is 
to make sure that they fall to where one portion of a Majini touches the other 
portion.  For instance, a leg might overlap a Majini's body and when Chris 
stomps he hits both the body of one Majini and the leg of the other Majini.  
Aim for the portion where they both overlap each other then stomp to hit them 
both.

NOTE: Keep in mind that Chris' stomp can hit a Majini leg and take off 540 
damage instead of the full 600 damage.  This can happen sometimes when 
attempting to stomp more than one Majini.  It can mess up a melee kill for 
STARS Chris and BSAA Chris the most out of any Chris type since their main 
melee weapons damage the least - basically, if the Majini is not damage enough, 
it will only be weakened.

-- Hook/Kick (Standing and Grounded)

It's very hard to gain a multiple melee kill off of a hook or kick melee.  
Since they can hit grounded Majini, they have a good chance to hit multiple 
Majini when a weakened ground Majini stands by a Majini that is arm stunned 
however.  They have the potential to hit standing weakened Majini as well.  The 
Hook is more likely to hit standing Majini thanks to its wide range.

Using the hook or kick for a multi melee kill is really not something you'll 
want to try to set up however.  Multi melee killing with Chris' two arm stun 
melees is more of a Kodack moment than a true useful strategy.  It's kind of 
like that one day when you accidentally stomped a chicken - it's a rare 
occurrence.

NOTE: Be sure to keep in mind that a hook will hit more toward Chris' right 
side much like his uppercut melee, so a player will want to try to work Majini 
to his right side when attempting to hit more than one.

-- Rising Upper (Standing and Grounded)/Hammer Elbow (Standing) [Reunion]

When paired with a Rebecca or Barry partner in Mercenaries Reunion, Chris will 
gain his powerful Rising Upper and Hammer Elbow, which will greatly increase 
his chances for multi melee killing.  Both of these melees will kill Majini 
without the need for prior damage.

A good tactic to use when you get a leg stun on a Majini is to stand by the 
stunned Majini and allow other Majini to gather then perform the Rising Upper 
melee to hit several Majini at one time.  Chris' Rising Upper allows him to hit 
grounded enemies, so it's really the best of the two special Reunion melees 
when it comes to hitting multiple Majini.

-- Stab (Standing and Grounded)

Chris can actually get multiple melee kill off of a stab on a Licker Beta, but 
this is extremely luck base considering how hard Lickers are to flip over and 
set up for melee.   Naturally, you can only do this on Experimental Facility. 
This is best done on the ramps on the bottom floor or the stairs of the top 
floor.  Basically, Chris will stab one Licker Beta then hit another Licker Beta 
or Base Majini with his knife in the process.  The stab takes off 900 damage, 
so it will kill any Licker or Base Majini that Chris hits with the knife 
regardless if he hits them in the leg or body.

==============================
SAVING A MELEE KILL WITH CHRIS
==============================

Unlike Wesker, Chris has no dash and no way to save a melee kill unless you 
play as Heavy Metal Chris, who has a stun rod to save melee kills.  Chris has 
to rely on stuns alone to set up melees and sometimes, he will not always get 
them, especially in the case of BSAA Chris or STARS Chris with their random leg 
stun play.

-- Low damaging knife stun

With other Chris types aside from Heavy Metal Chris, you'll need to figure out 
just how much damage a Majini can take before it dies from gunfire.  After the 
final shot, to where the Majini cannot survive another shot, run up to it and 
equip the knife then slash its legs to attempt to get a leg stun on it.  The 
amount of slashes that Chris can hit the weakened Majini with will vary 
depending on Chris type since they will take different amounts of damage with 
their weapons.  Keep in mind that the knife takes 45 damage per leg slash.

-- Flash explosive save

A flash round with STARS Chris or a flash grenade can help to save a melee kill 
also.  Use a flash explosive the moment that a Majini cannot take anymore 
damage to stun it and set it up for a Straight melee kill.  One thing to keep 
in mind is that Chris' straight can cause a critical which can increase the 
chances for random Cephalos.

NOTE: A direct hit with a flash round will take 100 damage, so shoot the 
weakened Majini indirectly.  Flash rounds will cause cocktail Majini to burst 
into flames and it will make dynamite and explosive arrow Majini explode.

-- Luring Weakened Majini into melees on other Majini

Chris can stun a Majini then lure a weakened Majini into the melee.  This is 
best done with Chris's uppercut or straight but it can also be done with his 
other melees as well.  Naturally, this will take some good timing but this can 
be one of Chris' best way to save a melee kill overall since it's quick.  It's 
best to stand by a stunned Majini and wait for a weakened Majini to reach out 
for a grap or attempt to hit Chris then perform the melee as the weakened 
Majini moves in.

-- Luring Weakened Majini into a time bonus hit

Besides looking pretty hilarious, a player can lure a weakened Majini toward a 
time bonus then hit the time bonus and the Majini with Chris' Hook.  You won't 
just gain +30 seconds from that time bonus hit, it will be more like "+30 
seconds... No wait! +35!"

-- Falling on a weakened Majini

If a Majini is standing beside a ledge and Chris shoots it, the Majini will 
fall and take 350 damage from the fall.  When the Majini falls, quickly run 
over to the ledge and fall along with it.  If Chris hits the dying body of the 
Majini (falls on it), he will receive +5 seconds for a melee kill.  If Chris 
hits the grounded body BEFORE it has been on the ground for too long, he can 
stomp the Majini for a brief period before it recovers if the Majini is still 
alive.  It's best to plan stuff like this out since Chris has to fall along 
with the Majini basically - anticipate the fall after a shot to a Majini that 
stands near a ledge.

=================================
SHOOTING A MAJINI FROM A DISTANCE
=================================

When an enemy is at a distance, a Chris player can quickly shoot the Majini in 
any portion of the body, based on the Majini type, to keep it from setting up 
an attack.  This is VERY useful for dynamite and cocktail Majini.  A shot from 
a distance will cancel the lighting of a stick of dynamite and it will cancel 
the throwing animation of any weapon.

Shooting a Majini just to stagger it is also a good tactic for working your way 
around it to keep Chris from getting surrounded.  If one Majini is in front of 
Chris and two Majini are behind him, shoot the one in front of Chris to quickly 
stagger it then run behind it and immediately turn to face all three Majini 
from one side.

==============
ROLLING MAJINI
==============

When shooting Majini that are running or sometimes just standing still they 
have a chance to fall to the ground and roll.  Chris cannot activate a stomp 
command on a rolling Majini until it finishes rolling.  The Majini is not 
considered "grounded" until it completely stops rolling.

During the rolling animation, a Chris player can damage the Majini further 
however - this is VERY useful to know for STARS Chris.  If you ever shoot a 
Majini once with STARS Chris' SIG 556 and it starts to roll, you have a chance 
to hit it one more time during its rolling animation to set it up for a stomp 
melee kill once it finally stops rolling.

========================================================
SHOTS + STOMP AFTER A GRAB/SHOTS WHILE A MAJINI STAGGERS
========================================================

-- Shots + Stomp After a Grab

Whenever a Majini grabs your character from the behind, struggle with the 
Majini normally to fight it off (wiggle the left thumbstick and tap a button), 
then quickly aim toward the fallen Majini and shoot it to damage it and set up 
a ground melee kill.  If you shoot fast enough, the Majini will not get up and 
your character will receive the ground melee command while standing over the 
weakened Majini.  This is best done with Type A or B controls where a player 
can take advantage of the quick camera turn.  Basically, the moment after your 
character fights off the Majini, aim straight it and fire to damage it then 
Chris can stomp it afterwards for a melee kill.

-- Shots While a Majini staggers

There will come a time where a Majini will get knocked off balance based on 
your actions and will stagger backwards and fall.  The moment the Majini is in 
this staggering animation, a player can shoot the staggering Majini before it 
hits the ground in order to damage it and set up a ground melee kill once it 
falls.

NOTE 1: Both of these techniques work for all characters, but are not needed 
for Jill since she already takes 1200 damage per Double Knee Drop ground melee.

NOTE 2: With STARS Chris, a player will have to shoot a Town Majini twice 
before a stomp and with Heavy Metal Chris, a player will have to use the stun 
rod to damage.

NOTE 3: Wetland Majini will have to be shot multiple times before they will 
remain grounded.  One shot from any Chris type will not keep them grounded.

=======================================
TIGHT SPACES FOR MELEES/FIGHTING BOSSES
=======================================

-- Tight Spaces

Like most characters, Chris excels greatly in tight spaces.  The leg stun 
Chris' (BSAA, STARS and Heavy Metal) can uppercut multiple standing and 
grounded Majini much easier in a closed corridor and the head stun Chris' 
(Safari and Warrior) can knock down several standing Majini that line up in a 
tight corridor.  Safari and Warrior Chris can fight just about anywhere thanks 
to their straight melee kills, but BSAA, STARS and Heavy Metal really need 
tight areas to rack up time from multi melee kills with their uppercuts.

-- Fighting Bosses

When fighting any type of boss as BSAA, STARS and Safari Chris (without a 
rocket launcher), it's a good idea to have Chris' back to a wall so that Majini 
can't get behind him while he shoots the boss.  Bosses can also be stunned and 
Chris can run behind the boss and damage it further (use the boss as a shield) 
- this is especially needed for BSAA Chris and Safari Chris without a rocket 
launcher since it will take several shots from their shotguns to finish off 
most bosses.  Use a hand grenade to stun some bosses with BSAA and Safari 
without a rocket launcher if needed.

With Warrior Chris, he is much like STARS Chris in that he can kill a boss 
quickly, but keep in mind that his Hydra must be aimed at specific parts of the 
boss (Executioner's head, etc.) in order to stun some bosses easier.  Heavy 
Metal Chris needs hand grenades or proximity bombs to stun many of the bosses 
he will face.  He is a total sitting target while shooting a boss with his 
gatling gun.  Thankfully, Majini can't grab him from the back so at least he 
does have that advantage.

================================
SPREADING DAMAGE AGAINST A CROWD
================================

This is VERY IMPORTANT to learn with any Chris type.

When up against a crowd of Majini, Chris is going to have to damage each Majini 
in that crowd somewhat before he can perform a melee to melee kill each one.  
With STARS Chris and BSAA Chris, it's a good idea to fire shots at each Majini 
in the crowd to stagger the Majini and damage it.  Once Chris gets a leg stun, 
a player can stand by the stunned Majini and uppercut to hit multiple Majini 
that have already been damage.

BSAA Chris - Shoot each Majini in a crowd with one shot to the chest to stagger 
them then try for leg shots to get a leg stun.  It's basically like a game of 
connect the dots.  Once you connect them all... BOOYAH!

Safari Chris - The BSAA Chris method can work even though Safari's handgun is 
more damaging, but Safari's straight can also knock down a crowd and possibly 
kill multiple Majini with a critical punch (without prior damage).

STARS Chris - Perform a three shot spray of SIG shots down each Majini's body 
(starting from their chest and ending at their legs) then shoot the legs to try 
to get a leg stun.  STARS Chris players can also shoot Majini twice in the 
chest and then once in the legs.

Warrior Chris - Warrior Chris can take advantage of his handgun's piercing and 
he can be played like BSAA Chris when a crowd is present (each shot will hit 
and damge multiple Majini), though he will kill with his handgun shots faster 
than BSAA Chris, much like Safari Chris.  He can be played like a more 
successful Safari Chris also.

Heavy Metal Chris - Damage all Majini in a crowd with gatling gun fire then try 
for leg stuns.  Pull out the stun rod if a leg stun occurs or not.  You need to 
train yourself to pull out the stun rod a bunch just as a precaution.  Heavy 
Metal Chris can also use his stun rod alone for crowd control.  Each strike has 
some decent range and he hits with a wide swing - in a tight corridor, his stun 
rod can really shine against crowds!

=====================
ITEM DODGING AS CHRIS
=====================

Picking up an item off the ground will make your character invincible to any 
sort of harm throughout the entire item pickup animation.  Just stand over the 
item and press the X/[] button to pick it up the instant an enemy is about to 
attack/grab in order to dodge.

Keep your inventory open for at least one item while playing as Chris the 
majority of the time since he will need to pick up items in order to escape 
enemy attacks at times.  This holds true for any character, but when playing as 
BSAA Chris and STARS Chris, who rely on random leg stun, you're not always 
going to get a stun when you need it and might run the risk of getting 
attacked, so your Chris might be able to pick up an item in order to dodge an 
oncoming attack or grab if he fails to get a leg stun in a tense situation.

Heavy Metal Chris in Reunion is like a punching bag when it comes to attacking 
Majini with him since he must get up close a good bit of the time so item 
dodging can be extremely important for him.  Thankfully, he needs no ammo, so 
he is free to pick up a good bit of items in order to dodge.

==========================
LAG WITH CHRIS IN DUO MODE
==========================

In duo mode, a Chris player can have a major disadvantage while playing as 
STARS Chris and BSAA Chris.  He already has to rely on a random leg stun to 
gain his best melee kill setup, but toss in the fact that you will have to wait 
a certain amount of seconds for the random stun to activate along with the 
possibility for an unregistered shot and you might be setting the stage for 
ultimate fail in your gameplay.  I'll always say that playing as BSAA Chris or 
STARS Chris under heavy lag is so very useless.

IMPORTANT FACT: Certain types of lag will decrease leg stun luck.

That statement above is so very true.  There are certain types of lag that will 
give your character few leg stun chances.  It's so noticeable when you're under 
that type of lag.  All you will receive per leg shot are tons of staggers and 
rare leg stuns and knockdowns.

If you play with a Wesker partner in duo in normal RE5 Mercs, it's really best 
if the Chris player hosts the game most of the time.  Let's compare the two 
under 3 seconds of lag:

-- Chris

Possible Majini reactions per leg shot fired:

- possibility for a random leg stun after 3 seconds of lag in between each shot
- a knockdown where Chris will have to wait a few seconds for the button prompt 
  to appear in order to activate it ("Stomp" won't always appear instantly due 
  to lag)
- a slight stagger after 3 seconds
- an unregistered shot leading to no response (aka. you didn't fire that shot)
- the possibility for no leg stun at all (well, we might as well use shotgun or 
  magnum really...)

ONE ADVANTAGE: Chris can set up an easy lag shot after receiving a leg stun 
after the first shot - basically just run up to the leg stunned Majini and fire 
a shot then melee.  Lag will actually make it much easier to perform a lag 
shot.  This can help out Chris quite a bit on Wetland Majini stages where the 
Majini are weaker than Town Majini.

-- Wesker

Possible Majini reactions per head shot fired:

- a stun that will ALWAYS activate after 3 seconds
- a critical which will at least keep the combo going
- a Cephalo which any Wesker type can easily kill with one shot if the combo is 
  at risk
- an unregistered shot leading to no response (aka. you didn't fire that shot)

No character is easy to use under lag, but I feel Wesker has more advantages 
that allow him to cope with lag better.  This is all arguable, and for players 
to make up their own mind about really though.  The lag shot with lag can help 
STARS Chris and BSAA Chris out a bit, but waiting a few seconds in between leg 
stun chances can severely weaken them and make them more open to attacks.

In Mercenaries Reunion, Heavy Metal Chris isn't really as bad under lag as BSAA 
Chris or STARS Chris in normal RE5 Mercs.  He will still have the obvious delay 
after each leg shot, but with Heavy Metal Chris, he has a stun rod that can 
save melee kills so he's not really at that much of a disadvantage.  Safari 
Chris and Warrior Chris both rely on head stun melees for the most part, so at 
least they will have same basic advantages as a Wesker player under lag... 
minus the overpowered weapon for killing Cephalos quickly of course.

BSAA Chris can rival a S.T.A.R.S. Chris player with his weak handgun, which can 
set up easy uppercut melees.  He can gain multiple melees easily since he 
damages quickly with his handgun and has a very easy overall melee kill setup 
on the majority of Majini.  After damaging a Majini with two handgun shots to 
any portion of the body he can melee kill the Majini with an uppercut.  Damaged 
Majini can pile around him and feel the sweet embrace of a Redfield uppercut 
once he gains a leg stun.

For a powered weapon, BSAA Chris only has his low damaging Ithaca shotgun.  
This can be used to save combos when the combo gauge is blinking or damage high 
HP enemies.  His Ithaca shotgun is his boss killer.  With some good dodging 
skills and knowledge of boss attacks, a BSAA Chris player can get through a 
boss fight without using his hand grenades to stun a boss, which is a good 
strategy to learn for killing a boss.

- 50 Handgun Ammo
- Ithaca M37 Shotgun (with 20 shotgun shells)
- 30 Shotgun Ammo
- 5 Hand Grenades
- 1 First Aid Spray

It's a good idea to move Chris' First Aid Spray to another slot once you gain 
control of him.  The bottom slot would be best saved for any flash grenades 
that a player might find while fighting Majini.  Even though his hand grenades 
will often ruin melee kills during a fight, it's still a good idea to keep them 
to stun bosses and destroy breakable walls.  BSAA Chris starts with 50 bullets 
of handgun ammo in his inventory and he already holds 50 bullets in the chamber 
of his M92F handgun, so he really starts with a total of 100 handgun bullets 
altogether.

His Ithaca shotgun holds 20 shotgun shells from the start and he has 30 extra 
shotgun shells in his inventory for a total of 50 shotgun shells.  He really 
doesn't need all of that ammo for his shotgun on most stages.  If you ever find 
that you're running out of inventory space during a run, discard the shotgun 
ammo from the beginning.  BSAA Chris will receive plenty of shotgun ammo drops 
while fighting, so you'll never be in a shortage of shotgun ammo most likely.  
With the shotgun already holding 20 shells from the start, BSAA Chris is not 
going to run out anytime soon on most stage (Prison is an exception).

--> BSAA Chris' M92F handgun

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- M92F (HG)

Firepower:    250
Capacity:     50
Reload Speed: 1.70 sec.
Special:      Critical 37.5%
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BSAA Chris starts with a total of 100 handgun bullets altogether.  He has 50 
handgun ammo in his inventory and his handgun holds 50 bullets from the 
beginning.  He will need all of that ammo plus more throughout his fights per 
stage since his melee kill setups usually require two shots per Majini.  It's a 
good idea to horde handgun ammo with BSAA Chris from the beginning if handgun 
ammo is lying around since it is used up fast!

BSAA Chris' handgun has a high critical rate which will lead to critical 
headshots often with each headshot on a normal Majini.  This ruins melee kills 
and can cause random Cephalos, but it can also help in saving the combo if you 
don't want to risk saving the combo with a shotgun blast that may or may not 
kill from mid or long range.  A shot to the head with the M92F handgun will 
often result in a critical headshot that will kill the Majini.

The M92F handgun will take 250 damage per shot on a normal Majini.  Two shots 
to set up an uppercut followed by an uppercut melee is the best way to melee 
kill a normal Majini with BSAA Chris to gain a 5 second bonus per melee kill.

BSAA Chris' Ithaca shotgun is his main boss killing weapon...

...

Yeah, that's what I thought too when I first started playing BSAA Chris.  
Capcom gave the main character of Resident Evil 5 a shotgun that only takes off 
400 damage per pellet and it happens to be his most powerful gun weapon!  The 
Ithaca shotgun starts with 20 bullets in its chamber and BSAA Chris has 30 
extra shotgun shells in his inventory from the start.  He doesn't really need 
that much shotgun ammo on most stages, so a player can easily discard the 30 
shotgun shells to free up inventory space.

When fighting a boss with BSAA Chris, a player will often want to use a 
combination of his hand grenades and his shotgun to stun and weaken bosses.  
His shotgun alone can work well for boss stuns with proper aiming at a boss' 
weak point, but tossing a hand grenade is so much quicker and will remove a 
crowd of Majini if they happen to surround a boss (especially in solo mode).

Chris' firepower for his Ithaca is 400 damage per pellet shot, so that means 
when you fire the shotgun at a wall, each hole that is made will take 400 
damage from anything that it would have hit with that shot.  Usually the 
shotgun will make about 7 holes in a wall, so his gun actually takes off about 
2800 damage per shot for a DIRECT hit where ALL pellets hit an enemy.

Normal Ithaca pellet spread:

 .   .
.  .  .  <--- 400 damage x 7 pellets
 .   .

--> BSAA Chris' Hand Grenades

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Hand Grenade

Direct Hit:  1,500
Area Effect: 1,000
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BSAA Chris starts with 5 hand grenades in his inventory that take off 1000 
damage or 1500 damage per explosion based on if the explosion is a direct hit 
or not.  The best part about Chris' hand grenades is that they are very useful 
for stunning bosses and they SHOULD be used to stun bosses when several enemies 
crowd the boss, especially in solo mode.

Yeah, you're going to ruin melee kills while stunning a boss that has a crowd 
around him, but if you go in with shotgun alone, just imagine the time you'll 
be wasting when getting grabbed and possibly getting knocked into dying status 
while trying to stun that boss without a hand grenade!

BSAA Chris' hand grenades are very useful for breaking open cracked walls to 
make short paths in Public Assembly or Prison.  His hand grenades are good for 
killing the chicken in each stage also.  There is really no need to pinpoint 
aim with the handgun when Chris can just toss a hand grenade that will knock 
that little clucker out with a wide area range explosion.  Sometime pinpointing 
aiming at the chicken with the handgun and shooting it is better since you 
don't run the risk of ruinining melee kills however.

Chris' hand grenade is also a really good method to defeat Cephalos that spawn 
from a Majini and still keep the combo in solo mode.  The moment a Cephalo 
spawns, Chris can quickly toss a hand grenade at the foot of the Cephalo and 
the direct hit explosive blast will instantly kill the Cephalo.  Again, the 
hand grenade will ruin melee kills when tossed at a Cephalo in a crowd, but it 
will instantly rid Chris of that Cephalo nuisance.  The same can be done for 
Duvalias also - hand grenades are actually PRICELESS against Duvalias since one 
direct explosion can kill them while the Majinin mutates into the Duvalia!

This section is a listing of damage that each of BSAA Chris' melees and weapons 
will take from each enemy in The Mercenaries.  Each Enemy has its total HP 
amounts listed along with damage modifiers.  The amount of damage that each of 
Chris' melees and weapons take from each portion of the enemy is listed below 
the HP amounts and modifiers.  Basically, if you want to make up your own melee 
kill, then add up a total amount of shots leading up to a melee and make sure 
that full amount is greater than the enemy's HP.

NOTE: Some of the damage listings per enemy can be off a bit.  Some of enemies 
such as the Gatling Gun Majini appear to have a random weapon damage modifier 
for some weapons.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 1

*******************************************************************************
M92F Chest shot -> M92F Leg shot -> Uppercut
(250 damage + 225 damage + 400 damage)
*******************************************************************************

A chest shot followed by a leg shot and then an uppercut is the bread and 
butter of BSAA Chris' melee kills for normal Majini.  Since a leg stun is 
random, the leg shot may not be activated on the second shot and Chris may have 
to shoot the legs of the Majini one more time for another chance at a possible 
leg stun.  If that doesn't work, he will have to resort to knife slashing the 
Majini in the legs of using a flash grenade to stun it for a final attempt at a 
melee kill.  Any normal Town Majini will die from the fourth M92F shot to any 
portion of the body.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 2

*******************************************************************************
M92F Leg shot -> M92F Leg shot -> Uppercut
(225 damage + 225 damage + 400 damage)
*******************************************************************************

Shooting the legs twice is another option for a Chris player to set up an 
uppercut.  Why would you want to shoot the legs twice and risk a knock down on 
the first shot?  Well, when up against a crowd of Majini, you're little Chrisy 
will be begging for a leg stun to avoid the attacks or grabs from the Majini 
mob in front of him.

Constantly shooting only the legs can be a good choice for a BSAA Chris player 
that is up against a big crowd of Majini.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 3

*******************************************************************************
M92F Leg shot -> Stomp
(225 damage + 600 damage)
*******************************************************************************

If a Majini is tripped by a single stomp, Chris can run up to the Majini and
stomp it on the ground for a melee kill.  An M92F shot to any portion of the 
body will guarantee that a stomp will kill most normal Majini.

NOTE: If the stomp hits the legs of a Majini after a leg shot the stomp will 
not kill.  This can be a flaw of shooting the legs of a Majini from the 
beginning when attempting to get a double stomp - basically, Chris accidentally 
stomps the legs of one Majini and ruins the melee kill on that Majini.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 4

*******************************************************************************
M92F Leg shot -> Neck Breaker
(225 damage + instant kill)
*******************************************************************************

A neck breaker is an instant kill on any type of Majini.  Get a leg stun 
through an M92F shot then step behind the Majini to get the neck breaker 
command then press the button to activate the neck breaker to instantly kill 
it.  Besides instantly killing a Majini, the neck breaker will also stop 
scripted plagas spawns from a Majini.  If a Majini WILL spawn a plagas enemy 
from any other type of kill, Chris can cancel that Cephalo spawn by performing 
a neck breaker on the Majini.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 5

*******************************************************************************
Knife Slash legs -> Uppercut
(45 damage + 400 damage)
*******************************************************************************

Alright, so you've weakened the Majin down to where the fourth shot will kill 
it.  Whatever shall you do for that +5 bonus now?  Well, you could try for a 
leg stun with Chris' machete (knife).  His knife takes only 50 damage (45 for a 
leg slash), so you'll get a few chances.

The main problem with doing this is that Chris will be wide open to surrounding 
Majini attacks and grabs.  Only try for this if only a few Majini are in the 
area.  This is a better option for duo play rather than solo since you'll have 
few enemies at a time most of the time in solo - keep in mind that enemies are 
more aggressive in duo though!

Out of all the Chris types, BSAA Chris will have to resort to a knife slash the 
most to gain a stun for a melee kill.  He damages the most and has to rely 
almost fully on leg stuns.  Head shots are almost complete fail with BSAA Chris 
unlike Safari Chris since BSAA Chris' handgun will almost always result in a 
critical head shot and, unlike STARS Chris, his main weapon for melee setups 
takes off more.

M92F leg shot -> Stomp
M92F leg shot -> Neck Breaker
M92F chest shot -> M92F chest/leg shot -> M92F arm shot -> Hook/Kick
Critical head stomp on fallen Majini **

* This is really the best method for killing a female Majini.  You'll get three 
chances for a leg stun if Chris shoots the legs of the female from the start.

** DON'T do this unless it is an accident or you're a man or woman of risks.  
About 90% of the time, a female Majini will spawn a Cephalo from a head stomp.  
If you don't get a Cephalo from the head stomp on a female Majini, you are VERY 
lucky and you should treasure that +5 time bonus.

M92G chest shot -> M92F leg shot -> Stomp *
M92F leg shot -> Neck Breaker
M92F chest shot -> M92F arm shot -> Hook/Kick

* Since Wetland Majini have lower HP than Town Majini, BSAA Chris' handgun will 
kill off a Wetland Majini with a third shot if he fires at the chest first.  A 
player can start off by firing at the legs of a Wetland Majini to have a total 
of three chances for a leg stun without killing the Majini.  If the Wetland 
Majini is hit with only two leg shots and falls, it will automatically get up 
after hitting the ground.  If the Wetland Majini is hit with a chest shot 
follwed by a leg shot and falls, it will remain grounded since it has received 
enough damage to stay on the ground for a while.

Setting up Wetland Majini for an uppercut or stomp with BSAA Chris is a matter 
of luck no matter how you try to set up the melee.  It's best to go with what 
works best for you.  No method is really better than the other when all leg 
stuns are random!

Critical head stomp on fallen Majini **


-- Torch Majini - 1500

M92F leg shot -> Neck Breaker
Critical head stomp on fallen Majini*

Some of the Torch Majini on Ancient Ruins are scripted Cephalos, so stomping 
the head is not always the best option.  Knowing which Torch Majini are 
scripted Cephalos and which are not is the best option when fighting them.


-- Rocket Launcher Majini - 1000

M92F shot x3 -> Uppercut*
M92F shot -> Neck Breaker

* It doesn't matter if Chris hits the Rocket Launcher Majini in the legs or the 
chest, the uppercut will still kill the Majini after three shots.


-- Bui Kichwa - 200

Stomp on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa
Uppercut on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa *
Hook on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa
Kick on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa

* Out of all of Chris' melees the Uppercut will be your best chance at a 
hitting a Bui Kichwa.  Basically, you'll have to set up a leg stun on a Wetland 
Majini then aim the uppercut so that it will hit a Bui Kichwa.  This is MUCH 
easier said than done and you're likely to get this more on accident or by 
chance rather than trying to actually set it up.

* Both shotgun blasts need to be from close or mid-range in order for them to 
weaken the Cephalo enough to where it will be killed by a stomp.  Since a 
Cephalo must be knocked down twice, you'll need to shoot it once to knock it 
down then wait for it to get up and then shoot it again.  Don't hit it again 
while it is on the ground, or it will automatically get up after falling the 
second time.  It's really best to try to kill it with up close shotgun blast. 
You're really already wasting time by killing the Cephalo with a shotgun, so 
having it survive after a stomp that follows two shotgun blasts would just 
waste time.

** An explosive barrel will take 1000 damage from the Cephalo, so it will 
weaken it just as much as a shotgun blast.  Again, the Cephalo will get up if 
it is hit while it is already grounded.  It's possible to shoot a Cephalo with 
a shotgun blast and hit an explosive barrel at the same time on some stages 
(like Missile Area).  It's basically a bouncing process.

*** Each M92F shot will take 250 damage (1250 total).  If you can hit the 
Cephalo from close range with an Ithaca blast to the chest after the handgun 
chest shots, it should weaken the Cephalo enough so it will be killed by a 
stomp.  This is a very consistent melee kill for a Cephalo, but the time wasted 
with the M92F shots is very annoying.

-- I RAN OUT OF HANDGUN AMMO!  WHAT NOW!?

Thanks to BSAA Chris's weak shotgun, a player can actually set up stomp melees 
by aiming toward the feet of a Majini and firing at it's legs to knock it down. 
Since each pellet takes off 400 damage, you want only one or two pellets from 
the shotgun spread to hit.  The Majini will likely fall back with its head 
facing Chris, so try to stomp it from the side if possible in stages with 
random Cephalos to help prevent them.

You can also resort to using the knife and slashing at a Majini's legs then 
perform a quick neck breaker.  Don't do this for crowds though - the shotgun 
works much better for crowds when out of handgun ammo.  Even if you do ruin 
melee kills, at least you won't run as much of a risk of getting grabbed when 
firing the shotgun.

-- DESTROYING WEAK WALLS WITH GRENADES.

Use hand grenades to destroy the cracked walls in Public Assembly and Prison if 
needed.  Most of the time, you'll do this at the start of a run.  Try to avoid 
hitting Majini to help save melee kills as usual.

-- USING THE KNIFE TO SAVE A MELEE KILL.

The majority of Majini will die after four shots to any portion of the body 
with the M92F handgun.  If Chris doesn't get a leg stun after three shots, 
you'll have to resort to the knife or lure the weakened Majini into a melee 
that is used to hit another Majini.  Basically, you equip the knife then aim 
toward the Majini's legs and slash for an attempt at one final leg stun.  This 
is just as random as the chances for a normal leg stun from the handgun, so 
your luck will vary.  It's best to only try this when facing only one or two 
Majini instead of a crowd.

-- DISCARD THE SHOTGUN AMMO FROM THE START?

Since BSAA packs 20 shotgun shells in his shotgun from the start, there is no 
reason to keep his extra ammo on most stages if you think you might need the 
extra inventory space.  Besides Experimental Facility, Ship Deck and Prison, he 
won't need the extra shotgun shells in duo or solo most likely.  If you do need 
some extra shotgun ammo, there should be plenty of shotgun ammo drops lying 
around from random enemy item drops.

-- 2 LEG SHOTS  VS  1 CHEST SHOT + 1 BODY SHOT TO SET UP AN UPPERCUT?

BSAA Chris can kill most Majini with two handgun shots to any part of the body 
followed by an uppercut.  Many players shoot the chest before hitting the legs 
for a smaller chance of tripping the Majini - you only hit the legs one time, 
so you'll either get a knockdown, a leg stun or nothing and have to shoot 
again.

When a big group of Majini is near Chris, you'll want to get a leg stun as soon 
as possible.  When up against a large group, a player can focus on shooting 
only the legs of Majini to possibly get a leg stun faster.  This way, if a 
Majini is about to grab Chris, he can quickly activate an uppercut if he gets a 
leg stun prior to the grab.

-- GRENADE OR SHOTGUN FOR CEPHALO KILLS, DUVALIA KILLS AND BOSS STUNS?

A blast from the Ithaca shotgun is not going to kill an undamaged Cephalo on 
the first hit, but a player can toss a grenade at the feet of a Cephalo to 
instantly kill it with the upcoming explosive blast.  Obviously, a hand grenade 
will ruin surrounding melee kills, but if the current combo is at risk (numbers 
are flashing), a hand grenade is the only way to instantly kill a Cephalo and 
save the combo without ruininig a melee kill by shooting a nearby Majini with 
the Ithaca shotgun.

BSAA Chris can melee kill Cephalos with two well-aimed shotgun blast followed 
by a stomp, but the combo is much more important than a possible melee kill.  
The shotgun is still a good way to kill a Cephalo, but, like already mentioned, 
it won't be an instant kill.

When it comes to a Duvalia, it is to your advantage to toss a hand grenade at 
the feet of a transforming Duvalia in order to kill it instantly with the 
resulting explosive blast.  No matter how many melee kills, you ruin with the 
hand grenade, the hand grenade is far superior to using the Ithaca shotgun on a 
Duvalia.

Bosses are really best killed with only the shotgun.  If a group of Majini 
surrounds a boss in solo mode, it's best to use a grenade to clear away the 
surrounding Majini and stun the boss.  The Gatling Gun Majini is about the only 
boss that Chris must stun with a grenade in order to damage him and kill him.

-- AIMING CHRIS' UPPERCUT AWAY FROM A MAJINI HEAD?

Most stages have random Cephalos in them that can be activated by shooting or 
hitting a Majini in the head.  Chris' uppercut often has a chance to hit a 
Majini in the head from in front of the Majini, so it can cause a random 
Cephalo to spawn from a Majini.

A player can aim Chris' uppercut away from a Majini by stepping to the side of 
a Majini before activating the uppercut.  This will make it to where his fist 
will hit the side of the Majini instead of the head.  Aiming the uppercut away 
from the Majini head will reduce the risk of creating a random Cephalo.  Chris 
might still have a chance of hitting the Majini's head, but hitting a Majini 
from the side will reduce that risk.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -  Chris (Safari)  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Safari Chris is almost like a joke character in The Mercenaries with his random 
flaws.  He is like a watered-down Wesker in the form of Chris, only possessing 
Wesker's flaws and none of his strengths.  Safari Chris comes decked out in a 
zebra outfit and carries a powerful handgun, a shotgun and two rocket 
launchers.  This version of Chris is hard to the core in a very funny sort of 
way!

Safari Chris is flawed highly with each of his weapons in stages where Majini 
can spawn random Cephalos.  His main melee kill setup involves a head stun and 
Chris' straight, which often hits the head of a Majini for a critical, so this 
Chris has the potential to create tons of Cephalo spawns in stages that carry 
random Cephalos.  Even Safari's M3 shotgun will often critical a Majini if it 
hits a Majini in the head, so his powered weapon also has the potential for 
creating random Cephalos.

Safari Chris' main melee kill setup also has a random damage factor associated 
with the straight punch melee.  Basically, after a head shot + Straight punch 
sequence, a Majini might survive the straight and have enough HP left to be 
killed off by a simple knife slash to any portion of the body.  This flaw along 
with his random Cephalo chances will sometimes lead to a combo loss in solo or 
duo mode.

The main saving grace of this Chris type is that fact that he can instantly 
kill any enemy with his rocket launchers.  Most stages have multiple boss 
enemies, but Safari can instantly kill two of them with his rocket launchers.

Safari Chris starts with the following items in his inventory:

- SIG P226 Handgun (with 16 handgun bullets)
- 30 Handgun Ammo
- M3 Shotgun (with 10 shotgun shells)
- 10 Shotgun Ammo
- 2 Rocket Launchers

Below is a diagram of his inventory from the start:

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

Safari Chris starts with less overall ammo than BSAA Chris and this WILL affect 
his ammo drops from enemies.  Since he starts with only 30 extra handgun 
bullets and 10 extra shotgun shells in his inventory, he will receive less of 
each ammo type when compared to BSAA Chris, so running out of ammo with Safari 
Chris might happen at times.  Safari Chris seems to have the least amount of 
random handgun ammo pickups from enemy item drops out of any character.  
S.T.A.R.S. Wesker is the only other character that gets few handgun ammo drops.

It's a good idea to horde handgun ammo with Safari Chris as it appears from 
defeated enemies.  Safari Chris might enter periods where enemies will only 
drop shotgun ammo.  This is one of his many flaws and it will happen to a 
player eventually.  Running out of shotgun ammo can happen as well, but since 
Safari will not use shotgun ammo as much, it's really not that much of a 
problem on most stages.

To make up for his low ammo count, Safari Chris has two extremely overpowered 
rocket launchers in his inventory.  Whatever Safari hits an enemy with a direct 
rocket attack, that enemy will be no more!  Just point at the enemy and fire 
and the big bad monster will go away guaranteed!


--> Safari Chris' SIG P226 handgun

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- SIG P226 (HG)

Firepower:    350
Capacity:     16
Reload Speed: 1.70 sec.
Special:      ---------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The SIG P226 has a higher damage rate than many other handguns in Mercenaries 
but it's just low enough to expose one of the biggest flaws of Safari Chris.  
His main melee kill setup is a shot to the head with his handgun followed by a 
straight punch.  His straight punch will sometimes take off less damage than it 
is supposed to and this causes the straight to not kill Town and Base Majini at 
times.  If only Safari Chris' gun took off just 50 damage more, he would always 
kill with his main melee setup.  Always hitting the front of a Majini with 
Safari's straight will reduce the risk of him not killing with his straight, 
but it's not always guaranteed even then.

The P226 handgun takes 350 damage per shot and this causes it to weaken Majini 
with fewer shots when compared to BSAA Chris which means that Safari is better 
off going for headshots.  The P226 handgun will sometimes give a player tons of 
critical headshot in a row however.  This can lead to random Cephalo spawns on 
stages with random Cephalos.  To make matters worse, Safari's straight punch 
has a chance to spawn a random Cephalo as well since it can cause a critical 
head explosion!

The handgun's higher damage rate keeps a player from successfully playing 
Safari like BSAA Chris since most Majini will die from the third leg shot.  
Safari Chris players can try for a chest shot/leg shot and leg shot followed by 
an uppercut, but always remember that the third leg shot will kill if the leg 
stun doesn't activate on the second shot!

-- Safari Chris' M3 shotgun

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- M3 (SG)

Firepower:    500
Capacity:     10
Reload Speed: 3.00 sec.
Special:      ---------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The M3 is by far the worst shotgun in the game.  Sure, it takes off 100 damage 
more when compared to the Ithaca shotgun, but just fire it at a wall on Public 
Assembly and look at the pellet spread!  This shotgun has a VERY random pellet 
spread.

Normal M3 pellet spread:

 .   .
.  .  .  <--- 500 damage x 7 pellets
 .   .

The diagram above shows the kind of blasts that Safari will be firing from his 
M3.  All of those dots will take off 500 damage, but just fire at a wall and 
look at how random those pellet spreads are - they are almost never the same 
like BSAA Chris' more consistent spread from his Ithaca shotgun.  Either way, 
Safari's shotgun will take off more damage per shot than the Ithaca when it is 
fired at close range.  The M3 CAN kill a Cephalo with one hit from one 
perfectly aimed chest shot from close range.  It can also set a Cephalo up for 
a stomp melee kill.

The randomness of the pellet spread causes each shot to be different no matter 
how a player aims the gun however.  Against a boss, the M3 will often kill 
faster than BSAA Chris' Ithaca shotgun however, so even without his rocket 
launchers, Safari is still overall better for boss kills when compared to BSAA 
Chris.

-- Safari Chris' Rocket Launcher

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

Firepower:    30,000
Capacity:     1
Reload Speed: ---------
Special:      ---------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Out of his whole inventory setup, the two rocket launchers in Safari's 
inventory are the main attraction to any player that scrolls through the 
character select screen, I'm sure.  Each rocket shot will take off 30,000 
damage which will kill ANYTHING with a direct hit.  The area damage will kill 
off just about anything except for the Red Executioner at times.

The main flaw with the rocket launcher is that it will kill off every enemy 
near the boss and has the potential to ruin several melee kills!  It's far 
better to go ahead and fire the rocket and ruin melee kills rather than weaken 
a boss with the slow shotgun however.  Since most stages have more than 2 
bosses, Safari Chris will have to fight off at least one boss with the M3 
shotgun in solo mode, so it's good to plan ahead and decide which boss presents 
the biggest challenge.

Because of the explosion, it's easy to get knocked into dying status by 
shooting a rocket launcher from too close of range to Safari Chris.  All it 
takes is an overly aggressive boss to charge Safari (Chainsaw Majini) or have a 
Majini step right in front of the scope as a player aims to accidentally have 
the rocket hit Safari Chris when he fires.  Take great care when attempting to 
fire the rocket launcher and be on the lookout for that stray Majini!

This section is a listing of damage that each of Safari Chris' melees and 
weapons will take from each enemy in The Mercenaries.  Each Enemy has its total 
HP amounts listed along with damage modifiers.  The amount of damage that each 
of Chris' melees and weapons take from each portion of the enemy is listed 
below the HP amounts and modifiers.  Basically, if you want to make up your own 
melee kill, then add up a total amount of shots leading up to a melee and make 
sure that full amount is greater than the enemy's HP.

NOTE: Some of the damage listings per enemy can be off a bit.  Some of enemies 
such as the Gatling Gun Majini appear to have a random weapon damage modifier 
for some weapons.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 1

*******************************************************************************
SIG P226 head shot -> Straight
*******************************************************************************

Safari Chris' main melee kill set up should be a shot to the head with his P226 
handgun followed by a straight punch on the staggering Majini.  With Town 
Majini and Base Majini, this melee kill setup might not lead to a kill.  There 
is a random damage factor associated with BSAA Chris and Safari Chris' straight 
punch that makes the straight punch melee take off less per hit sometimes.  
Sometimes the full string of attacks will not take off more than 800 damage and 
the Majini will survive to where a single knife slash will finish it off.

Contrary to popular belief, failing to hit the head of the Majini is NOT the 
reason why Safari Chris takes off less.  There is some other yet unknown factor 
that causes his straight punch to take off less than it it supposed to at times 
(possibly hitting the weapon arm of a Majini).  Wetland Majini will always be 
killed by Safari Chris' main melee setup however since they only have 700 HP.

NOTE: Always hitting a Majini from the front with a straight punch after each 
headshot will increase your chances for killing a Majini with Safari Chris' 
straight after each P226 headshot.  When a Majini turns its back to Chris after 
a headshot, rush around to its front side then activate the straight punch 
melee.  The straight punch is still not guaranteed to kill even from the front, 
but most of the time, it will kill when Chris hits a Majini from the front 
after each headshot.

Base Majini have a hit detection problem associated with hitting them in the 
head - the head stun will not always activate, which makes Safari Chris much 
worse than the other two Chris types on Experimental Facility.  It is far 
better to kill Base Majini with an uppercut, neck breaker or stomp melee 
because of this.

Safari Chris' main melee setup will cause Cephalos like a Wesker player that 
sets up Cobra Strike with either Wesker type.  Safari Chris seems to produce 
even more Cephalos than Wesker with his P226 head shot and his straight.  One 
will have to keep this in mind and try to avoid Majini that have a high risk 
for random Cephalos (female Majini, most Missle Area Majini) by killing them 
with uppercuts, neck breakers or stomps.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 2

*******************************************************************************
a) SIG P226 chest shot -> SIG P226 leg shot -> Uppercut
b) SIG P226 leg shot -> SIG P226 leg shot -> Uppercut
*******************************************************************************

Safari Chris can use the same melee kill setups as BSAA Chris, but since his 
gun is more powerful, he will have less chances to set up a leg stun than BSAA 
Chris.  The plus side on doing this is that he will have much less chance of 
producing a random Cephalo on stages where they are common, but a player will 
often be forced to kill off Majini due to not getting a stun.

As with BSAA Chris, it is best to aim the uppercut away from the head of the 
Majini to avoid producing a random Cephalo.  Simply step to the side of the 
Majini just a bit before activating the uppercut to have less of a chance of 
the uppercut hitting the head of the Majini.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 3

*******************************************************************************
SIG P226 leg shot -> Stomp
*******************************************************************************

Just like with BSAA Chris, Safari Chris can stomp Majini after they fall to the 
ground after receiving one shot from the P226 handgun for a melee kill.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 4

*******************************************************************************
SIG P226 chest shot -> SIG P226 arm shot -> Hook/Kick
*******************************************************************************

I didn't feel a Hook/Kick melee kill sequence was worth going into depth for 
BSAA Chris, but with Safari Chris, he can actually kill off a Majini after the 
second shot to set up the arm stun since his gun is more powerful than BSAA 
Chris' M92F handgun.  While shooting at a Majini's head it is very possible to 
hit an arm on accident, so this melee combination can come in handy.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 5

*******************************************************************************
SIG P226 leg shot -> Neck Breaker
*******************************************************************************

Getting a leg stun on a Majini with the P226 handgun and stepping around the 
back side of the Majini will allow Safari Chris to instantly kill the Majini 
with a neck breaker for a melee kill.  The neck breaker is most important for 
canceling scripted Cephalos that would have otherwise been activated from a 
normal melee kill.  It's also useful for Majini that have high HP amounts, such 
as the Agitator on Public Assembly.

Critical head stomp on fallen Majini

* The straight after the headshot for Safari Chris' main melee kill setup will 
not always kill off a Majini no matter how you aim the straight.  There is 
always a random damage factor to the straight punch that will keep it from 
taking off the full 400 damage at times.


-- Agitator Majini - 1400

SIG P226 chest shot -> SIG P226 chest shot -> SIG P226 head shot -> Straight

SIG P226 chest shot -> SIG P226 arm shot -> Hook/Kick
Critical head stomp on fallen Majini

* A head shot + straight melee kill combination will always kill a female 
Majini unless the female spawns a Cephalo, and a random Cephalo spawn can 
happen OFTEN with a female Majini when hitting it in the head!  Since both the 
head shot and the straight have a chance to produce a random Cephalo on a 
Majini type that has extremely high chances, it's really best just to try for a 
leg stun then perform a neck breaker or maybe just try for an uppercut or stomp 
melee kill to avoid the possible Cephalo spawn.

Critical head stomp on fallen Majini*

* Some of the Torch Majini on Ancient Ruins are scripted Cephalos, so stomping 
the head is not always the best option.  Knowing which Torch Majini are 
scripted Cephalos and which are not is the best option when fighting them.


-- Rocket Launcher Majini - 1000

SIG P226 chest shot x2 -> Uppercut
SIG P226 leg shot x3 -> Uppercut
SIG P226 leg shot -> Neck Breaker

Obviously, you'll want to try to get two chest shots before an uppercut, but if 
you accidentally hit the legs be sure to shoot the rocket launcher Majini two 
more times in the legs before an uppercut to kill it.


-- Bui Kichwa - 200

Stomp on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa
Uppercut on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa *
Hook on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa
Kick on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa

* Out of all of Chris' melees the Uppercut will be your best chance at a 
hitting a Bui Kichwa.  Basically, you'll have to set up a leg stun on a Wetland 
Majini then aim the uppercut so that it will hit a Bui Kichwa.  This is MUCH 
easier said than done and you're likely to get this more on accident or by 
chance rather than trying to actually set it up.


-- Cephalo - 3000

M3 shotgun blast to chest -> Stomp *
SIG P226 shot to chest -> SIG P226 shot to chest -> M3 shotgun blast to chest
-> Stomp **

* By shooting a Cephalo point blank in the chest with the M3, Safari Chris can 
sometimes finish off the Cephalo with a stomp after it falls to the ground.  
It's best to aim to kill the Cephalo with one shotgun blast.  A player can 
shoot the Cephalo with a few SIG P226 handgun shots before the shotgun blast in 
an attempt to weaken it so that the stomp will kill.  It is very possible to 
kill off a Cephalo with one single shot from the M3 shotgun, but that takes ALL 
pellets in order to do so.

** Shooting the Cephalo in the chest with two shots from Safari's handgun will 
help out if Chris can't easily get close to it for a close range blast from the 
M3.  You could also try to hit the Cephalo with only one handgun shot before 
the shotgun blast if two handgun shots is too much.

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

-- ALWAYS HIT A MAJINI WITH A FRONTAL STRAIGHT AFTER A HEAD STUN

Safari Chris' straight will take off random damage for some reason when a 
straight does not hit from a Majini's front side.  Whenever a Majini turns its 
back to Chris during a head stun from a handgun shot, quickly run to the 
Majini's other side (front side) then activate the straight so Chris will 
straight punch the Majini from the front.  Knowing this is VERY important for 
Safari Chris players.

If a straight punch does not kill a Majini after a head stun, it will be 
extremely weak and will die to a simple knife slash.  The best way to finish it 
off would be to quicky run toward it and stomp it.  Either stomp it or lead it 
another Straight.  If the combo is at risk when the Majini hits the ground, go 
ahead and shoot it with Safari Chris' handgun to save the combo.

This is a flaw that a player WILL encounter no matter how much you play Safari 
Chris.  The straight not killing can be very random at times.  Even when the 
straight is aimed toward the front side of a Majini, there is still a small 
chance that it might not kill.

-- LAG SHOT

More than any other Chris type, the lag shot (instant shot before a melee) is 
very important to Safari Chris.  While using the lag shot, Chris can arguably 
be played as a leg stun character.  Since his handgun will take off so much 
damage with two shots that it will kill a Majini on the third shot, a Chris 
player can start off by shooting a Majini in the legs then run up to it during 
a leg stun and quickly lag shot then uppercut to kill it off.

As you might imagine, this takes much practice to perfect, but it's definitely 
worth learning if you intend to play Safari Chris seriously.  It's best to 
practice the lag shot in Versus where lag is present often.  The lag shot also 
helps when Safari Chris accidentally gets an arm stun when trying for a 
headshot.  Arguably, the lag shot can be used to rid him of the flaw of his 
straight not killing also - head stun, lag shot, straight.

NOTE: See the section for "Lag Shot" at the beginning of this guide for 
information on the lag shot technique.

-- SAFARI CHRIS AND CEPHALOS

Safari Chris is a Cephalo producing machine in stages with many random Cephalos 
such as Public Assembly and Missile Area.  He has the highest chance for 
activating a scripted Cephalo out of any other character in The Mercenaries.  
His handgun already has a high critical rate and his straight punch has a high 
critical rate as well.  He will sometimes often get criticals with his main 
melee kill setup (headshot + straight) which will lead to him creating random 
Cephalos.  There is no way to avoid this unless you play Safari Chris as a leg 
stun character (preferably with lag shot) in stages where random Cephalos are 
found.

Safari Chris' shotgun also has a very high critical rate when it hits a Majini 
in the head.  Always try to aim for a Majini's body and legs when shooting a 
Majini with the shotgun to avoid a crical head shot.

-- MELEE KILLING CEPHLAOS WITH SAFARI CHRIS

As already mentioned, Safari Chris will be breeding Cephalos quite often at 
times in stages with random Cephalos.  To melee kill a Cephalo, you'll have to 
hit it with an extremely close M3 blast or weaken it a bit with one or two 
handgun shots then blast it with the M3 to set it up for a stomp.  It's really 
best to aim to kill the Cephalo with the shotgun most of the time since shotgun 
blast melee killing is very random thanks to the pellet scread.

-- MELEE KILLING WITH THE SHOTGUN

Safari Chris players will run out of handgun ammo on some runs eventually.  
Safari Chris gets less handgun ammo drops than other Chris types.  You might be 
forced to use the shotgun to set up stomps.  Basically, aim for the legs of a 
Majini and fire to knock them to the ground then run up and stomp - try to 
avoid stomping the head.

"Loading grenade... open fire!"

When it comes to the overall best Chris type for The Mercenaries, STARS Chris 
wins hands down over the other Chris types.  He has something for every type of 
situation.  He has a low damaging machine gun to set up melee kills, a magnum 
for boss killing (and it helps him set up melee kills) and a grenade launcher 
that can allow him to instantly kill plagas and save melee kills on weakened 
Majini with flash rounds and the grenade launcher can set up some extremely 
time building multi melee kills with nitrogen rounds.

With the right amount of luck, STARS Chris can easily rival a Wesker player for 
high scores in The Mercenaries.  The only thing that really sets him apart from 
a Wesker is that he relies on random leg stuns and has no dash to save melee 
kills on weakened Majini.  If he could get a leg stun with each leg shot, STARS 
Chris could rival Wesker scores and more easily surpass them.

- 6 Magnum Ammo

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

STARS Chris comes decked out with everything needed for a stage in his 
beginning inventory.  He comes equipped with plenty of machine gun ammo and 
will get frequent machine gun ammo drops from enemy kills.  His magnum already 
holds 12 bullets and he also has 6 extra bullets in his inventory.  STARS Chris 
seems to receive magnum ammo from enemy drops at a decent enough rate to keep 
him from running out of ammo for it as long as the magnum is used only when 
needed.

STARS Chris carries a grenade launcher that comes equipped with electric rounds 
from the start.  He will receive random grenade round drops from enemies every 
now and then.  He will mainly only need flash rounds and nitrogen rounds for 
the majority of the stages however.  To free up inventory space, it's almost 
always best to discard his electric rounds after finding and loading flash or 
nitrogen rounds.

In some stages such as The Mines and Missile Area, nitrogen and flash rounds 
have the potential to do more harm than help (ruin melee kills on dynamite and 
cocktail Majini).  A STARS Chris player can discard his grenade launcher to 
elminate grenade round drops and get a better chance at machine gun ammo and 
magnum ammo.  Grenade round drops can easily become frustrating at times for 
both Chris and any partner in duo - the grenade round drops will sometimes be 
dropped instead of some needed ammo that could have been dropped.

--> S.T.A.R.S. Chris' SIG 556 machine gun

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- SIG 556 (MG)

Firepower:    160
Capacity:     65
Reload Speed: 2.55 sec.
Special:      ---------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

STARS Chris' SIG 556 machine gun is his main weapon to set up melee kills with. 
It's quite easy to set up a melee kill with the SIG and there are several ways 
to do so with its overall low damage ouput.  As you know, leg stuns are random, 
but STARS Chris has the best overall chance at leg stuns more than any other 
Chris type.  Since the SIG 556 takes off little damage per hit, Chris will have 
many chances to get a leg stun through leg shots.

From a range, the recoil can mess up precision shots, but the recoil is not 
near as bad as Clubbin' Sheva's AK.  While the SIG 556 is not as accurate as 
both Jill types' machine guns, the SIG can have some decent accuracy with good 
aim.  A STARS Chris player will mainly use this weapon for close range combat, 
so the recoil doesn't really matter too much.

Two SIG shots to the body and one SIG shot to the legs for a leg stun followed 
by an uppercut is the usual method for setting a Majini up for an uppercut 
melee kill.  One shot to the body and two shots to the legs with the SIG will 
also set up an uppercut melee kill.  Knowing both of these melee kill methods 
will come in handy for STARS Chris.  The first melee kill method requires more 
precision and is overall slower.  The second melee kill method can be done 
quite fast - literally hold the trigger for rapid fire and aim at the Majini's 
body then drag the SIG downward while blasting at the Majini's legs.

Using a machine gun to set up melee kills requires good timing and that's one 
thing a player will have to learn on their own with STARS Chris.  Knowing how 
long you should down the trigger while aiming is a big factor to using STARS 
Chris well.  The timing for Chris' shots needed for melee kills is really 
nothing that you can see in videos, you just have to get the feel for it.  In 
the case of Big Man Majini melee kills with the machine gun, their stagger 
animations give off how many times Chris has hit them (four shots = one 
stagger).

--> S.T.A.R.S. Chris' S&W M29 magnum

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- S&W M29 (MAG)

Firepower:    2,100
Capacity:     12
Reload Speed: 3.53 sec.
Special:      Level 3 Piercing
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The M29 magnum is the main weapon that separates STARS Chris from all the other 
Chris types.  STARS Chris has a boss killing weapon with frequent ammo drops!  
The M29 magnum is the weakest of all magnums but it has the best capacity and 
the quickest rate of fire out of all the magnums.  The M29 magnum is very easy 
to aim for precision aiming also. The gun does not obstruct the view of the 
player while aiming at all and the red laser trail is very easy to see!

The M29 magnum deals out 2100 damage per shot.  STARS Chris can set up any boss 
for a melee kill with magnum shots (and possibly some extra SIG 556 shots for 
some extra damage needed to make a melee actually kill).  While the other two 
Chris types in normal Mercs have no definite melee kill method for bigger 
enemies and bosses, STARS Chris can get an easy kill on most bigger enemies and 
all bosses.

STARS Chris' magnum is easily what makes him the best Chris type overall.  The 
magnum can also be used to save the combo from a distance on any normal Majini. 
The only real problem that Chris faces with a low damaging magnum is a sudden 
Cephalo spawn and killing bosses enemies with high HP.  He can still kill all 
of these enemies quicker than the other Chris types, but he is open to Majini 
attacks and grabs while filling the enemy full of lead, so you'll need to take 
that into consideration while shooting.

--> S.T.A.R.S. Chris' grenade launcher

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

Acid Round Firepower:        500
Electric Round Firepower:    400
Explosive Round Firepower: 1,000
Flame Round Firepower:       500
Flash Round Firepower:       100
Nitrogen Round Firepower:    100
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As if STARS Chris was not already good enough with his machine gun and magnum, 
he also comes equipped with a grenade launcher.  From the start, the grenade 
launcher is pretty useless with only electric rounds, but STARS Chris will 
sometimes get flash rounds and nitrogen rounds from enemy drops.  Acid rounds 
and explosive rounds are only useful on certain stages.  Flame rounds are 
basically useless and only really used for boss stunning on Chainsaw Majini or 
extra firepower.  Below is a list of all grenade rounds and their uses:

- Acid Rounds

Acid rounds are most useful on Experimental Facility.  Lickers are very weak to 
the acid spread of an acid round, so Chris can kill off groups of Lickers with 
one acid round shot.  A player can knock a Licker on its back with an acid 
round shot and set it up for a stab melee.  Knocking a Licker over with an acid 
round requires a non-direct hit that hits the Licker from the front or a direct 
hit one of the Licker's front legs.

Acid rounds will also stun the Reaper boss enemy with two direct shots to any 
portion of its body.  Just shoot the Reaper with two acid rounds to make it 
bend backward and expose its main chest weak point to which Chris can easily 
shoot with a magnum shot to kill it off with a single shot.

Acid rounds will stun a crowd of Majini and make them all fall face first for 
Chris to easily stomp, but the falling animation takes too long to usually 
bother with and the Majini all get up quickly most of the time and are damaged 
and more prone to bullet kils at that time.

- Electric Rounds

Electric rounds are most useful for quickly breaking apart cracked walls and 
wooden doors on Public Assembly and Prison.  It will take two shots per cracked 
wall to break it.  Wooden doors will take a single shot to break compared to 
several shots with any other weapon.

Electric rounds can be used on Wetland Majini to easily weaken crowds for quick 
melee kills.  After one electric round shot, all Majini that were hit can be 
killed with Chris' straight and uppercut if he can set it up on the weakened 
Majini.  Using an electric round along with flash rounds and flash grenades can 
help out a bunch for Wetland Majini groups - shoot a crowd with the electric 
round then stun them all with a flash explosive and kill them with straight 
punches.

Electric rounds also take off a bunch of damage from any plagas enemies.  They 
can kill both Duvalias and Cephalos quickly when shot at any portion of their 
body.  A Cephalo will die within two electric round hits while a Duvalia will 
take about three to four hits most of the time.

NOTE: Electric rounds can set off dynamite, cocktails and explosive arrows so 
do not shoot any of the these Majini types with electric rounds or you'll risk 
ruining melee kills.

- Explosive Rounds

Explosive rounds are best used on Experimental Facilty while fighting Lickers 
Betas.  By aiming at the front legs or directly in front of the Licker and 
firing an explosive round, Chris can hit the Licker and knock it over to set it 
up for a stab melee kill.  So long as the explosive hit does not take full 
damage and hits the Licker from the front side, the Licker will be tumped over 
and set up for a stab melee kill.  An explosive round is much easier to use in 
setting up a melee kill on a Licker Beta when compared to an acid round.

Explosive rounds can also be used to break open cracked walls on Prison and 
Public Assembly, but it's really best to use the starting electric rounds for 
that purpose to avoid the time needed in picking up the explosive rounds and 
wasting of inventory space in carrying them.

- Flame Rounds

For the most part flame rounds are basically useless.  They can be use to stun 
the Chainsaw Majini on Ship Deck, but that is really not needed since Chris can 
stun the Chainsaw Majini with a leg or head shot with the M29 magnum.  They are 
best used for needed ammo on Experimental Facility against Licker Betas if 
Chris is running low on ammo.  With one flame round shot, Chris can break open 
a cracked wall on Public Assembly and Prison with this grenade round, but his 
starting electric rounds can work just as well.

Like acid rounds, flame rounds will stun a Majini and make a Majini fall to the 
ground for an easy stomp, but it takes just as long for the Majini to fall to 
worry with using them for that purpose.

- Flash Rounds

Flash rounds have the ability to kill off any plagas enemy instantly with its 
blinding flash.  Flash rounds also allow Chris to save melee kills on weakened 
Majini.

DO NOT fire a flash round when a dynamite, explosive arrow or cocktail Majini 
is in the area.  The blinding flash will cause dynamite and explosive arrow to 
explode and mess up melee kills around them.  Cocktail Majini will burst into 
flames and burn any surrounding enemies.

NOTE: Keep in mind that a direct hit with a flash round will take off 100 
damage, so hitting a weakened Majini with a flash round can kill it if the 
Majini is weak enough.

- Nitrogen Rounds

Nitrogen rounds will instantly freeze any normal Majini type that does not hold 
an explosive of any type.  The Majini will be frozen and Chris will be able to 
straight punch all the frozen Majini for a melee kill.  A Chris player can 
group Majini into a crowd then straight punch through multiple frozen Majini at 
once.  Grouping Majini for nitro freezes and just overall nitrogen round use 
can GREATLY increase time from melee kills when the nitrogen rounds are used 
properly.

Nitrogen rounds can freeze Big Man Majini and even allow Chris the option of 
melee killing a Licker Beta.  Basically, Chris can freeze a Licker then do some 
form of action that causes him to hit Licker with his body after performing the 
action.  Leaping from a platform, falling from a platform, hopping over the 
railing - all of this will melee kill a frozen Licker.

A nitrogen round will freeze the following enemies:

Town Majini
Wetland Majini (destroys shield and freezes shield Majini)
Base Majini (all types)
Big Man Majini
Licker Beta (no melee command)
Bui Kichwa (no melee command)

Extra Tips:

- Melee kills can be saved by freezing a weakened Majini with a nitrogen round. 
A player MUST remember that a nitrogen round will take 100 damage per direct 
hit however, so an extremely weak Majini must be hit indirectly - the nitrogen 
round must be shot at the ground below the Majini or the shot must hit an 
obstacle near it.

- A direct nitrogen round shot to an Explosive Arrow Wetland Majini will freeze 
it.  Any non-direct hit to an Explosive Arrow Majini with a nitrogen round will 
cause it to explode.

- A direct hit with a nitrogen round on a transforming Duvalia will instantly 
kill it much like a hand grenade explosion.  The nitrogen round must be shot 
before the full Duvalia mutation is complete however.

This section is a listing of damage that each of STARS Chris' melees and 
weapons will take from each enemy in The Mercenaries.  Each Enemy has its total 
HP amounts listed along with damage modifiers.  The amount of damage that each 
of Chris' melees and weapons take from each portion of the enemy is listed 
below the HP amounts and modifiers.  Basically, if you want to make up your own 
melee kill, then add up a total amount of shots leading up to a melee and make 
sure that full amount is greater than the enemy's HP.

NOTE: Some of the damage listings per enemy can be off a bit.  Some of enemies 
such as the Gatling Gun Majini appear to have a random weapon damage modifier 
for some weapons.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 1

*******************************************************************************
a) SIG 556 chest shot -> SIG 556 chest shot -> SIG 556 leg stun shot -> 
Uppercut

b) SIG 556 chest shot -> SIG 556 leg shot -> SIG 556 leg stun shot -> Uppercut
*******************************************************************************

These are the main melee kill setups that a STARS Chris player should be 
familiar with.  You need to train yourself to do these combinations very 
quickly.  The first combination takes a bit longer than the second.  The first 
has to hit the chest precisely two times, while the second can be easily 
performed by holding the SIG toward a Majini's chest then firing the machine 
gun while lowering the weapon toward the Majini's legs.

It's a good idea to know both of these melee kill sequences since they both 
come in handy.  Against a crowd of Majini, it's much better to use the second 
melee kill setup since it's overall quicker and will allow a player to stun or 
knock down Majini quickly.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 2

*******************************************************************************
SIG 556 chest/leg shot -> SIG 556 chest/leg shot -> Stomp
*******************************************************************************

A few SIG shots to the legs to ground a Majini is a good stomp setup for Town 
Majini that are at a distance from Chris.  This can also be good for cocktail 
Majini, dynamite Majini and Base Majini with grenade straps to avoid setting 
off their explosives.  When up against a group of Majini, a player can quickly 
ground multiple Majini with rapid fire to the legs then stomp them afterwards.

It's very important to listen for the two shots before attempting a stomp on a 
grounded Majini.  It's quite easy to mess up a stomp melee kill by accidentally 
grounding a Majini with a single shot.  The stomp will not kill at that time 
and the melee kill will be basically ruined unless you wait for the Majini to 
rise then toss a flash grenade.

Wetland Majini will get up unless they are heavily damage prior to a knock 
down.  It's best to try to kill them off with Uppercuts (both standing and 
grounded hits) rather than stomps.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 3

*******************************************************************************
a) SIG 556 chest shot -> SIG 556 chest shot -> SIG 556 head stun shot -> 
Straight

b) SIG 556 leg shot -> SIG 556 leg shot -> SIG 556 head stun shot -> Straight
*******************************************************************************

Sometimes, Chris will not always gain a leg stun when fighting against multiple 
Majini.  Leg stuns are random and will not always activate, but thanks to the 
SIG 556's weak gunshots, Chris can set up a straight punch melee kill after two 
chest or leg shots.  His straight punch is good for crowds much like his 
uppercut, but it scatters Majini after it hits, so it has less potential to set 
up a double stomp.

Keep in mind that a head shot and a straight punch can both give you a critical 
head explosion.  In Mercs stages with the possibility for random Cephalos, the 
headshot + straight punch combination can backfire on a player and give that 
player a Cephalo spawn.  In other words, don't try to head shot and straight 
punch female Majini on Public Assembly that often!

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 4

*******************************************************************************
SIG 556 leg shot -> SIG 556 leg shot -> SIG 556 leg shot -> SIG 556 leg stun 
shot -> Uppercut
*******************************************************************************

The melee kill setup above is not really something that a player will want to 
aim for, but it's good to keep this one in mind.  If a Town or Base Majini is 
shot in the legs four times and gives a leg stun pose after the four shots, it 
can be killed off with an uppercut.  You'll mainly get this while trying to 
ground a Majini with rapid fire.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 5

*******************************************************************************
SIG 556 leg stun shot -> Neck Breaker
*******************************************************************************

Like with all Chris types, a single shot to the leg that yields a leg stun can 
set up a neck breaker melee after Chris steps around to the back of the Majini. 
A neck breaker will cancel any scripted plagas spawn that would have otherwise 
occurred and it is always an instant kill.

With STARS Chris, when attemping a neck breaker on a Majini that isn't a 
scripted Cephalo, it's a good idea to shoot the Majini once in the body with 
the SIG then once in the leg to set up a stun.  This way, if the Majini falls 
to the ground, Chris can stomp it kill it instantly instead of having to race 
around to the head for a critical stomp.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 6

*******************************************************************************
Critical head stomp
*******************************************************************************

STARS Chris will have to use a critical head stomp more often than the other 
Chris types since you'll likely hit a few Majini with a single SIG shot while 
trying to ground them instead.  To instantly kill that grounded Majini, quickly 
run around to the Majini's top half and face its head then perform the stomp to 
crush its head under Chris' boot.  Keep in mind that a head stomp can set off 
random Cephalos in stages that carry them so it's not always good to try for a 
critical head stomp (especially on Missile Area).

SIG 556 chest shot -> SIG 556 chest shot -> SIG 556 head stun shot -> Straight
SIG 556 leg stun shot -> Neck Breaker
Nitrogen Round -> Straight
Critical head stomp on fallen Majini

* The Majini MUST be hit with two shots to any portion of the body prior to a 
normal stomp in order for the stomp to kill.  If the Majini is only shot once, 
it will not be killed by a stomp - this is a major flaw of STARS Chris and it 
WILL happen on accident eventually.  The stomp must not hit the legs of the 
Majini if it only receives two shots to the legs prior to the stomp.  If not, 
the Majini will survive the stomp - this only happens if two Majini are 
grounded next to each other and the stomp is activated on both so that Chris' 
foot hits the legs of one Majini.

* Females can be stomped after on SIG 556 shot to any portion of the body, but 
just like with a male's stomp melee kill, if the shot is to the leg, Chris 
cannot kill the Majini by stomping its legs (like in a double stomp on two 
fallen Majini).

* Just like with Female Majini, Chris can kill off any of the weaker Majini 
listed above with a stomp after one chest shot to the body with the SIG prior 
to a fall.  Chris' stomp will not kill them if it hits the legs of the Majini 
however (like in double stomp on two fallen Majini)

ruin the melee kill on the Explosive Arrow Majini and any surrounding Majini.


-- Torch Majini - 1500

SIG 556 leg stun shot -> Neck Breaker

Critical head stomp on fallen Majini


-- Rocket Launcher Majini - 1000

SIG 556 leg stun shot -> Neck Breaker

Critical head stomp on fallen Majini


-- Bui Kichwa - 200

Stomp on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa
Uppercut on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa *
Hook on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa
Kick on a Majini that happens to hit the Bui Kichwa
Nitrogen Round -> Straight (activated on Wetland Majini that hits Bui Kichwa)
Nitrogen Round -> Hop through window/fall off cliff (any action that makes 
Chris fall on the Bui Kichwa)

* Out of all of Chris' melees the Uppercut will be your best chance at a 
hitting a Bui Kichwa.  Basically, you'll have to set up a leg stun on a Wetland 
Majini then aim the uppercut so that it will hit a Bui Kichwa.  This is MUCH 
easier said than done and you're likely to get this more on accident or by 
chance rather than trying to actually set it up.


-- Cephalo - 3000

M29 Magnum shot -> Uppercut (on a surrounding Majini to hit Cephalo) -> Stomp
Electric Round -> Stomp *
M29 shot -> SIG shots to legs to ground the Cephalo -> Stomp **
SIG shots to Cephalo's legs -> Stomp **
Explosive Round -> SIG 556 body/head shot x4 -> Explosive Round -> Stomp ***

* This melee kill is kind of luck based.  The electric round must knock the 
Cephalo over.

** Both melee kills that involve shooting a Cephalo's legs are all luck based. 
Sometimes the Cephalo will fall and sometimes it won't.

*** The four SIG shots will make the Cephalo start to get up and the second 
explosive round will knock it back down and set it up for a stomp melee kill.

-- Duvalia - 6000

-- Chicken - 1

Stomp on a Majini that happens to hit the chicken
Uppercut on a Majini that happens to hit the chiken
Hook on a Majini that happens to hit the chicken
Kick on a Majini that happens to hit the chicken


-- Big Man Majini - 4000

IMPORTANT: For a Big Man, remember that four SIG 556 chest shots will make him 
stagger.  He will perform his stagger animation for every four SIG chest shots, 
so if you fire rapidly and see him stagger three times, you just hit him twelve 
times.

M29 chest shot -> M29 leg stun shot -> Straight
M29 leg shot -> M29 leg stun shot -> Straight
SIG chest shot x12 -> M29 leg shot -> Straight *
Stomp -> SIG chest shot x7 -> M29 leg shot -> Straight *

* The key to timing this well is to know that the Big Man will stagger right 
after the 12th SIG shot, so shoot him in the leg with the magnum after the 
third stagger.  This melee kill combination is good to use on Prison where 
magnum ammo can be rare.

* This combination is for when a stomp accidentally hits a Big Man Majini prior 
to shooting it (aka. it lunges into Chris' foot while he stomps).  Remember 
that you will get one stagger animation and will have to perform the magnum leg 
shot before the second stagger.

* The back shot for this combination can be done from the front.  Aim for the 
Red Executioners growth on his back when he kneels.

M29 body shot -> SIG 556 body shot x2 -> M29 leg shot -> Kick
M29 body shot -> M29 body shot -> SIG 556 shots to leg x5 (for a stun) -> Kick

NOTE: Always run behind the Giant Majini and perform Chris' Kick after a stun 
to make sure that he doesn't hit the mask of the Giant Majini.  Hitting a mask 
with melee will take no damage from the Giant Majini.

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

-- TWO SIG SHOTS BEFORE A STOMP

Drill this into your head.  Chris MUST hit all normal Town Majini (not Wetland, 
female, or the weaker Mines Majinin) with two SIG 556 shots prior to a stomp in 
order for the stomp to kill the Majini for a melee kill.  Stomping a normal 
Town Majini that has only been hit with one SIG shot prior to a fall will take 
off 600 damage from it and not kill it, thereby screwing up a melee kill.

Messing up a stomp melee kill can be a major flaw when using STARS Chris since 
it's sometimes hard to tell how many SIG shots a running Majini has received as 
it rolls to the ground.  If a Majini only receives one SIG shot before being 
grounded, quickly move on to another Majini or shoot the grounded Majini to 
make it get up faster.  Chris can run to the Majini's head and perform a 
critical head stomp on its head also - in stages with random Cephalos, this can 
REALLY backfire on him though since he can activate a random Cephalo with that 
critical head stomp.

-- LEG SHOT, STEP IN, NO LEG STUN, STEP OUT, TRY AGAIN

It will take quite a few hits on a Majini's legs at times in order to activate 
a leg stun since they are completely random.  One technique that many STARS 
Chris players use is to try for a leg stun with a SIG shot while stepping close 
then, if you fail to get one, quickly back off and try for another.  This will 
help to keep Chris safe from any surrounding Majini grabs since he will stay 
moving during this process.  The moment you get a leg stun, rush forward and 
uppercut.

This is a good method to use when one Majini keep failing to yield a leg stun. 
It's NOT good to stand still at all.  The longer Chris stands still, the longer 
he will be open for a grab.  Don't try to keep leg stunning one Majini in a 
crowd either.  Shoot the legs of multiple Majini in a crowd and watch for a leg 
stun pose.

-- HERDING MAJINI FOR A NITRO FREEZE

Nitrogen rounds should not be wasted at all.  It is best to keep them until 
your character is either surrounded or manages to group several Majini together 
for a big freeze with one shot.  They are not to be wasted.  Never use them 
just because you have them.

-- FREEZING SCRIPTED CEPHALO MAJINI WITH NITROGEN ROUNDS

When you cannot get a leg stun on a scripted Cephalo Majini or when a scripted 
Cephalo Majini is in a crowd, it's a good idea to use a nitrogren round to 
freeze the scripted Cephalo.  Freezing scripted Cephalos can help out a bunch 
on stages such as Ship Deck when Chris can't activate a leg stun.  Say... if a 
scripted Cephalo red wrench Majini falls to the ground after the first leg 
shot, Chris can blast the fallen Majini with a nitrogen and stomp it to cancel 
the Cephalo and gain a melee kill. 

-- FLASH ROUND AND ELECTRIC ROUNDS USED TO PURPOSELY KILL DYNAMITE AND 
EXPLOSIVE ARROW MAJINI

Sometimes flash rounds and electric rounds can come in handy when trying to 
save the combo if dynamite Majini or explosive arrow Wetland Majini are in the 
area.  Simply firing off one of the grenade types at either Majini type will 
cause them to instantly explode.  This can help out for saving the combo at 
times... like, if you run out of magnum ammo!

-- USING THE SIG 556 TO WEAKEN AND SAVE MAGNUM AMMO ON A BIG MAN MAJINI

I listed two melee kill methods for killing a Big Man Majini with only one 
magnum shot in the full melee kill list up above.  It's very advisable to learn 
these combinations for Prison mainly.  In Prison, magnum ammo is very much 
needed for the Prison Executioners, so conserving magnum ammo is very 
important!

-- PLAYING WITHOUT A GRENADE LAUNCHER

I'd actually recommend that a STARS Chris player practice playing without a 
grenade launcher at some points (discard it).  When playing without a grenade 
launcher, nitro rounds are not there to help you at all.  Chris has to get by 
strictly with the machine gun only.  It's some good training for players that 
want to practice conserving nitro rounds when they actually have a grenade 
launcher.

Getting rid of the grenade launcher will also give you quite a bit more 
inventory space as well.  It's quite refreshing at times.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -  Chris (Warrior)  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Warrior Chris is basically everything that Safari Chris should have been in 
normal RE5 Mercenaries.  He has very few melee kill flaws with his main melee 
kill setup and his handgun does not critical near as often as Safari Chris' SIG 
P226 handgun did.  Since Chris' straight punch takes off 600 damage in Reunion, 
Warrior Chris' low damaging handgun is a godsend for setting up melee kills 
since it can actually hit a Majini in the head twice without killing it.

Warrior Chris should be used as a head stun character in Reunion for the most 
part.  His headshot + straight punch melee kill sequence will kill just about 
any normal Majini.  When paired up with a Barry or Rebecca partner, Chris' 
Uppercut changes to the Rising Upper and his Neck Breaker chances to the Hammer 
Elbow.  Both melees are extremely overpowed and can kill off normal Majini 
without the need for prior damage.  The only flaw with the extra powered melees 
with Warrior Chris is that, he cannot cancel plagas spawns without his neck 
breaker!

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

As you can see, Warrior Chris starts out with a low extra ammo count for each 
of his main two weapons.  He won't get many handgun and shotgun drops at times. 
He seems to get rifle ammo quite a bit however, which is really not needed in 
most stages.  If you don't need the PSG-1 rifle, it's really best to discard it 
to eliminate rifle ammo drops and free up some inventory space.

Warrior Chris is going to be using his P8 handgun and his Hydra shotgun quite a 
bit throughout a Reunion run.  It's good to horde ammo for each weapon.  
Shotgun shells will tend to pile up if you pick up every available shotgun 
drop, but handgun ammo never does really pile up in Warrior's inventory since 
he'll be using it so much.  Warrior is primarily a headshot melee character, 
but he can be used as a leg stun melee character as well at times.

--> Warrior Chris' P8 handgun

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- P8 (HG)

Firepower:    300
Capacity:     25
Reload Speed: 1.02 sec.
Special:      Level 3 Piercing
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the type of handgun that Safari Chris should have had in normal RE5 
Mercs.  Warrior Chris' handgun takes off moderate damage and sets enemies up 
for a Straight punch melee kill always.  Since Warrior Chris' Straight punch 
melee takes off 600 damage in Mercs Reunion, he will always kill off any normal 
Majini type with a headshot followed by a Straight punch.

The P8 is the same handgun that is used by Midnight Wesker in normal RE5 Mercs. 
It's bullets still have a piercing propery that will allow them to pierce 
through Majini and any shields they might carry.  Since Chris' handgun takes 
off 300 damage and his Straight takes off 600 damage in Reunion, any piercing 
shot on Majini will set them up for a Straight melee kill, so one tactic while 
using Warrior Chris is to line up damaged Majini for a single Straight punch to 
get a multiple hit.

--> Warrior Chris' Hydra shotgun

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Hydra (SG)

Firepower:    400
Capacity:     10
Reload Speed: 3.30
Special:      Attack Range: 24
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warrior Chris comes equipped with the Hydra shotgun that STARS Wesker used in 
regular RE5 Mercs.  The firepower has been lowered a bit, and the attack range 
is not as great.  The lower firepower is definitely felt whenever a sudden 
Cephalo spawns from a Majini.  From close range, the majority of the full 
pellet spread of the Hydra shotgun needs to hit a Cephalo in order to kill it.

The Hydra can hold 10 shotgun shells at a time, so Chris will not have to 
reload as much as STARS Wesker.  The Hydra shotgun should be used a Warrior's 
main boss killing weapon.  Besides the lower damage, the Hydra shotgun also 
lacks stunning power just like STARS Wesker's Hydra.  At least STARS Wesker had 
a powerful handgun and magnum that could stun bosses though.  Chris has no real 
good method to stun bosses from a distance unless you bring along hand grenades 
to stun them or use the PSG-1.  It's really best to circle around a boss and 
shoot the boss with the shotgun instead of relying on any stunning weapon 
besides a hand grenade however.

--> Warrior Chris' PSG-1 rifle

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- PSG-1 (RIF)

Firepower:    1200
Capacity:     15
Reload Speed: 1.98 sec.
Special:      Level 8 Scope
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warrior Chris' PSG-1 rifle can be both a blessing and a curse depending on the 
stage that you are playing.  He really only needs the rifle on Missile Area and 
Ship Deck for the most part.  Other than those two stages, he really doesn't 
need this weapon.  The PSG-1 rifle is about the same strength as Battle Suit 
Jill's PSG-1 from normal RE5 Mercs - it even has the level 8 scope zoom still!

In stages where this weapon is not needed, keeping it in Warrior Chris' 
inventory will only make enemies drop rifle ammo when they could have dropped 
more useful handgun or shotgun ammo instead.  It's a good idea to discard the 
PSG-1 rifle from the beginning in stages where it is not needed.  Rifle ammo 
can be constant at times from enemy drops if Warrior Chris keeps this weapon in 
his inventory.

The PSG-1 rifle can serve as a decent long range combo saving weapon or boss 
stunning weapon, but his handgun can works just as well for long range with 
some good aiming really.

This section is a listing of damage that each of Warrior Chris' melees and 
weapons will take from each enemy in The Mercenaries.  Each Enemy has its total 
HP amounts listed along with damage modifiers.  The amount of damage that each 
of Chris' melees and weapons take from each portion of the enemy is listed 
below the HP amounts and modifiers.  Basically, if you want to make up your own 
melee kill, then add up a total amount of shots leading up to a melee and make 
sure that full amount is greater than the enemy's HP.

NOTE: Some of the damage listings per enemy can be off a bit.  Some of enemies 
such as the Gatling Gun Majini appear to have a random weapon damage modifier 
for some weapons.

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

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 1

*******************************************************************************
P8 head stun shot -> Straight
*******************************************************************************

A P8 shot to the head followed by a straight punch will kill off any normal 
Majini for a melee kill.  Since Warrior Chris' handgun will pierce, it can hit 
multiple Majini and set each of them up for a straight melee kill.  All Chris 
has to do is hit a Majini in any portion of the body in order for a straight 
punch to kill that Majini.  Each shot will take off 300 damage and each 
straight punch will take off 600 damage, which is much greater than the common 
800 health normal Majini.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 2

*******************************************************************************
P8 body shot -> P8 leg stun shot -> Uppercut
*******************************************************************************

Much like Safari Chris in normal RE5 Mercs, Warrior Chris can kill off a Majini 
with a body shot and leg shot followed by an uppercut.  Chris' uppercut takes 
off around 450 damage in Mercs Reunion, so it needs more prior damage than his 
straight punch in order for it to kill.

Just like Safari Chris, Warrior Chris will kill off a Majini with the third P8 
shot to any portion of the body, so the second hit must stun.  A player can 
shoot a Majini in the legs twice and uppercut as well, or take advantage of a 
lag shot after getting the first leg stun shot on a Majini.

It should be noted that Chris can kill off female and Wetland Majini with a 
single leg stun shot followed by an uppercut since they all have only 700 
health.  Warrior Chris can be a real beast in Wetland stages because of this.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 3

*******************************************************************************
P8 chest shot -> P8 arm stun shot -> Hook/Kick
*******************************************************************************

This is not a melee sequence that you'll be wanting to purposely try for, but 
if you happen to get an arm stun shot after hitting a weakened Majini that has 
already been shot once, then it can be killed with a Hook or Kick.  A player 
that hits a Majini in the arm from the start can run up to the Majini and 
perform a quick lag shot followed by a Hook/Kick as well.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 4

*******************************************************************************
P8 leg stun shot -> Neck Breaker
*******************************************************************************

The usual leg stun shot from the P8 handgun followed by a Neck Breaker from 
behind will still kill off any normal Majini instantly for a melee kill and 
eliminate the chance of a random or scripted plagas spawn.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 5

*******************************************************************************
P8 leg stun shot -> Rising Upper (duo with Rebecca/Barry partner only)
*******************************************************************************

While teamed up with a Barry or Rebecca partner in duo Reunion, Chris' uppercut 
melee will be replaced by his Rising Upper melee.  This melee takes off 2000 
damage with each hit, so it will kill off any normal Majini that Chris hits 
with his rising uppercut.  The Rising Upper is a good melee to set up multiple 
melee kills with when Majini are piled up.  The Rising Upper hits a wide area 
in front of Chris and it has delay which will allow Majini to pile up before it 
hits.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 6

*******************************************************************************
P8 leg stun shot -> Hammer Elbow (duo with Rebecca/Barry partner only)
*******************************************************************************

While teamed up with a Barry or Rebecca partner in duo Reunion, Chris' neck 
breaker melee will be replaced by his Hammer Elbow melee.  The Hammer Elbow 
takes off 1500 damage with each hit, which will kill off any normal Majini that 
Chris hits with his elbow.  The Hammer Elbow does not have as much range as the 
Rising Upper but it still has good delay to allow Majini to pile up before the 
melee.

* Out of all of Chris' melees the Uppercut will be your best chance at a 
hitting a Bui Kichwa.  Basically, you'll have to set up a leg stun on a Wetland 
Majini then aim the uppercut so that it will hit a Bui Kichwa.  This is MUCH 
easier said than done and you're likely to get this more on accident or by 
chance rather than trying to actually set it up.

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

-- HANDGUN SHOT TO ANY PORTION OF THE BODY + STRAIGHT KILLS

Since Chris' straight punch melee takes off 600 damage in Mercenaries Reunion, 
a single shot from his P8 handgun (300 damage) and a straight (600 damage) will 
kill off any Majini.  This is so helpful to know because it can be used to set 
up multiple melee kills by luring weakened Majini into the straight punch aimed 
toward another Majini and Chris can stun weakened Majini with a flash grenade 
then straight punch them to kill them.  Even if the Majini is hit in the leg, a 
straight punch will be enough to finish it off for a melee kill.

-- WARRIOR CHRIS VS WETLAND MAJINI, FEMALE MAJINI AND OTHER WEAK MAJINI

Warrior Chris can kill off Wetland Majini and female Majini by simple shooting 
them once in the legs to get a leg stun then uppercut them.  It only takes one 
shot to finish each of them off with an uppercut.  Whether you go for leg stuns 
and finish them off with an uppercut or go for head stuns and finish them off 
with a straight melee kill methods for Wetland Majini are all based on 
preference.  With leg stuns, they are random, so you have the risk of killing 
off the Majini without melee, and with head stuns, they can cause criticals, so 
each each method has flaws.

-- RISING UPPER/HAMMER ELBOW MELEES PROS AND CONS

The Rising Upper and Hammer Elbow can help Warrior Chris out greatly.  Not only 
will he be able to use leg stuns more effectively, but he will also be able to 
finish off Big Man Majini easier.  With a quick non-direct Hydra blast to the 
Big Man Majini, the Big Man will slide back and block then Chris can run up and 
kill it with his Rising Upper melee.

The main flaw with the powered melees when using Warrior is that he has no way 
to cancel scriped Cephalos when using them.  Since the Hammer Elbow takes the 
place of his Neck Breaker, he cannot cancel scripted Cephalo spawns and must 
always activate them.  Scripted Duvalias can be cancelled with a stomp, but a 
knockdown will not always occur.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - -  Chris (Heavy Metal)  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

At first glance, once you see that big gatling gun of his, this Chris type 
seems completely useless since melee kills are the main focus for killing off 
Majini in Mercenaries Reunion.  With enough effort in understanding him, 
knowledge of his attack damage (weapon and melee), knowledge of enemy HP and 
good timing with his gatling gun shots this Chris can be a time building 
machine!  His stun rod weapon makes it to where he can melee kill anything with 
several attack combinations.

Heavy Metal Chris has one major flaw in the fact that he cannot deal with 
bosses that well however - playing him in solo mode shows this weakness all too 
well.  His gatling gun has a lengthy startup animation where the front barrel 
will rotate before the gun fires, which can get him grabbed or hit when trying 
to fire quickly.

He is just as flawed as he is good, but with the right amount of dedication and 
patience, he is an extremely fun character to learn.  Heavy Metal Chris is 
actually the most fun Chris type to use in either mode if you ask me.  He is so 
unique when compared to other characters.

Warrior Chris starts with the following items in his inventory:

- Gatling Gun (with infinite bullets)
- Stun Rod
- 3 Hand Grenades
- 3 Proximity Bombs
- 1 Melee Vest
- 1 Bulletproof Vest

Below is a diagram of his inventory from the start:

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

Heavy Metal Chris has only three empty spaces in his inventory from the start, 
but that shouldn't be a concern at all.  Why?  Because Chris will not have to 
waste his inventory with carrying extra ammo for any of his weapons.  His stun 
rod is a melee weapon and his gatling gun has an infinite supply of bullets!  
The only thing that a Heavy Metal Chris player will have to worry about is 
stocking extra explosive weapons (such as a hand grenade) and healing items.

Chris has a melee vest and a bulletproof vest in his inventory at all times.  
Both of his vests cannot be discarded - Chris must keep them in his inventory 
the whole time.  A player can discard Chris' proximity bombs, but they can be 
just as useful as his hand grenades on some stages - such as stages with 
Duvalias and Reapers.

When it comes to inventory space, Heavy Metal Chris is a bit more free to pick 
up just about anything when compared to other characters.  In a solo game, 
besides the annoying rotten egg pickup, he will only receive explosive drops 
and healing items.

--> Heavy Metal Chris' Gatling Gun

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Gatling Gun

Firepower:    350
Capacity:     Infinite
Reload Speed: --
Special:      --
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Heavy Metal Chris' gatling gun comes packed with an infinite supply of bullets. 
At first glance, Heavy Metal Chris' gatling gun appears to do nothing but waste 
melee kills and allow a player to spam the screen with bullets.  With a little 
work on the timing, his gatling gun can be used to weaken Majini and set up 
melee kills.

The gatling gun takes off 350 damage per shot, so two hits to any portion of a 
Majini's body followed by Chris' uppercut will kill off the majority of normal 
Town Majini.  With weaker Majini such as Wetland Majini or female Majini, it 
will only take one shot prior to an uppercut to finish them off.  Chris can 
shoot a Majini in the head and set up his more powerful straight punch melee, 
but the accuracy needed for a headshot with the gatling gun is not really worth 
it.

Speaking of accuracy, when it comes to any type of accuracy from long distance 
the gatling gun can be extremely bad in hitting a ranged target.  The gatling 
gun produces such a heavy recoil that whatever you aim at is not likely to get 
hit whenever the gatling gun starts firing.  The front barrel of the gatling 
gun also has to go through a rotation cycle each time before it can be fired, 
so saving the combo instantly after a Majini grab or any type of hit from a 
Majini can be quite hard since the firing of Heavy Metal Chris' main weapon is 
not instant.

It's best to use this weapon in combination with Heavy Metal Chris' stun rod. 
The gatling gun is usually used to weaken a Majini in an attempt to set the 
Majini up for an uppercut melee.  If the leg stun is not activated, Chris can 
always save the melee kill with a stun rod hit on the weakened Majini!

When it comes to bosses, the gatling gun is your best gun for weakening a boss, 
with a catch - the gatling gun cannot easily stun a boss at all.  Chris will 
need a hand grenade or a proximity bomb in order to stun an Executioner boss 
when it gets close to him.  The gatling gun is only effective at weakening an 
Executioner from a distance or while the Executioner is stunned.  Other than 
stunning an Executioner with an explosive, your Heavy Metal Chris is a standing 
target while shooting a barrage of bullets at an Executioner that is coming 
right toward Chris.

--> Heavy Metal Chris' Gatling Gun Backpack

Surely you notice that huge backpack full of infinite bullets that obstructs 
your view while playing as Heavy Metal Chris?  That backpack is actually good 
to have there.  If the gatling gun is discarded, Chris will no longer have the 
backpack on his back, but... you want to keep it!

The backpack will protect Chris from side grabs and back grabs.  Majini hands 
will go right through Chris while the backpack remains on his back.  This means 
that whatever Majini are behind Chris are of little concern unless one of them 
has a weapon.  The only way that Heavy Metal Chris can be grabbed is from the 
front while he still keeps the gatling gun and backpack in his inventory.

The backpack will take many normal Majini attacks that hit the backpack 
directly and don't pierce through the backpack to hit Chris.  Attacks such as 
hits with a handaxe, green bottle or wrench will hit the backpack first if 
Chris has his back turned and this will allow Chris to avoid damage.  Chris can 
even turn his back toward the Gatling Gun Majini as he begins to fire and allow 
the backpack to shield him from the gunfire.  The backpack will also shield 
Chris from bowgun bolts from bowguns.

The backpack will not shield Chris from all attacks however.  Attacks such as a 
shovel strike or a long pipe hit may or may not hit Chris through his backpack. 
Shovels will sometimes only scrape the backpack and sometimes they will hit 
Chris through his backpack - it all depends on how close the Majini is to Chris 
and where the weapon hits him.  Boss attacks such as the Executioner's attacks 
and the Giant Majini attacks will all still damage Chris no matter where they 
hit.  The Gatling Gun Majini's bullets are the only boss attack that the 
backpack will shield him from.

--> Heavy Metal Chris' Stun Rod

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Stun Rod

Firepower:    350
Capacity:     --
Reload Speed: --
Special:      x5 damage on plagas
              cancels plagas spawns
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The stun rod is by far the main reason to use Heavy Metal Chris.  ANY enemy 
that is finished off with a final strike by the stun rod will count as a melee 
kill!  Because of this, it's a real good idea to remember how much damage that 
you have dealt to each enemy in order to finish them off with a stun rod.  It's 
good to know how much damage each of Chris' melees take off a Majini and how 
much each gatling gun shot takes off (350).

For example, if an undamaged Majini falls to the ground, Chris can run over and 
activate his stomp to take off 600 damage then finish off the Majini with a 
stun rod attack before it recovers - the stun rod attack will take off 350 
damage and will finish off the Majini (800 HP) for a melee kill.

It becomes quite interesting when you think of the possibilities for a melee 
kill when it comes to using the stun rod.  Heavy Metal Chris has the 
possibility to kill off ANY enemy with this weapon, but it's good to deliver 
prior damage beforehand.  Chris can melee kill Bui Kichwa enemies on Public 
Assembly and Village with a single swipe from the stun rod, he can melee kill 
Adjules in the Mines with a few shots followed by a stun rod hit, he can melee 
kills Lickers... this man can even kill off a Duvalia with rapid fire to the 
legs of the Duvalia to bring it to its knees then run over and hit the 
Duvalia's mouth with the stun rod!

The best part about killing plagas enemies with the stun rod is that the stun 
rod will take off 5 times as much damage per hit against any type of plagas.  
It will only take 2 stun rod attacks to kill off a Cephalo compared to the 
barrage of bullets from the gatling gun.  Hitting an enemy with the stun rod is 
much like hitting an enemy with an electric round.  The stun rod hits take off 
the same amount of damage and have the same damage properties.

NOTE: Hitting a Reaper with the stun rod will stun the Reaper just like an 
electric round shot!

NOTE: One final hit to a scripted plagas Majini with the stun rod will cancel 
the plagas spawn much like Chris' neck breaker.  This needs to be put to use 
often in Mercs Reunion!

--> Heavy Metal Chris' Hand Grenades

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Hand Grenade

Direct Hit:  1,500
Area Effect: 1,000
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Heavy Metal Chris' hand grenades can be VERY important for distance attacks 
when playing him.  Since the gatling gun has such bad accuracy from long range 
along with such a bad startup per shot, Chris' hand grenades can be used to 
kill off long range targets at a quicker rate if needed.  A hand grenade tossed 
at the legs of a mutating Duvalia is a very quick way to kill off a Duvalia 
also just like with BSAA Chris in normal RE5 Mercs!

Along with his Promixity Bombs, the Hand Grenades are also Chris' only way to 
stun some bosses quickly.  The gatling gun will take several shots to stun a 
boss but a hand grenade will stun many bosses instantly with a direct hit with 
the explosive blast.

--> Heavy Metal Chris' Proximity Bombs

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Proximity Bomb

Direct Hit:  1,500
Area Effect: 1,000
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Heavy Metal Chris' proximity bombs are another good way to stun bosses when 
they follow Chris.  These can also be used to help keep the combo while running 
away from enemies.  Proximity bombs can also be more effective against Duvalias 
if they have already mutated and are coming toward Chris - just place one on 
the ground and allow the Duvalia to step over it while it chases Chris.

Whether you should discard the proximity bombs from the beginning of a run or 
not is really up to you.  In duo mode, they don't have as much purpose since 
Heavy Metal Chris will not have to keep the combo all by himself, but, as you 
know, in solo mode, the combo is completely under the responsibility of one 
player and Chris' proximity bombs can help out in that aspect.

This section is a listing of damage that each of Heavy Metal Chris' melees and 
weapons will take from each enemy in The Mercenaries.  Each Enemy has its total 
HP amounts listed along with damage modifiers.  The amount of damage that each 
of Chris' melees and weapons take from each portion of the enemy is listed 
below the HP amounts and modifiers.  Basically, if you want to make up your own 
melee kill, then add up a total amount of shots leading up to a melee and make 
sure that full amount is greater than the enemy's HP.

NOTE: Some of the damage listings per enemy can be off a bit.  Some of enemies 
such as the Gatling Gun Majini appear to have a random weapon damage modifier 
for some weapons.

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

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 1

*******************************************************************************
Gatling Gun shot -> Gatling Gun shot -> Uppercut/Stun Rod Strike
*******************************************************************************

When fighting Town Majini, shoot them twice in the legs with the gatling gun 
then equip the stun rod and run toward the Majini.  If the Majini is stunned in 
the leg then uppercut the Majini, if the Majini is not stunned, hit it with the 
stun rod.  Wetland Majini can be killed off with a single shot from the Gatling 
Gun to any portion of the body followed by an uppercut.  A stun rod strike will 
kill a Wetland Majini after one gatling gun body shot or two leg shots.

Each gatling gun shot takes off 350 damage so just two shots from it already 
inflict 700 damage on a Majini.  The stun rod hits inflict 350 damage also and 
Chris' uppercut takes off 450 damage from a Majini.  Be sure to keep these 
figures in mind - they help out a bunch when using Heavy Metal Chris since he 
can get a melee kill on every enemy if you keep up with the damage inflicted.

NOTE: Keep in mind that a stun rod strike will cancel a plagas spawn, so when 
fighting a Majini that is a scripted Cephalo, you'll want to damage it a bit 
then finish it off with the stun rod, or neck break it.  A stun rod is faster 
at stunning a normal scripted Cephalo Majini when compared to Chris' neck 
breaker.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 2

*******************************************************************************
a) Stun Rod Strike -> Stun Rod Strike -> Stun Rod Strike
b) Stun Rod Strike -> Hook/Kick -> Stun Rod Strike
c) Stun Rod Strike -> Straight
*******************************************************************************

The stun rod works very well when attacking Majini from close range, especially 
in tight areas when Majini surround Chris.  A player can easily get multiple 
melee kills with stun rod strikes at times.  Each strike takes off 350 damage 
so three hits will kill the majority of most Majini.

The stun rod will set up stuns just like the gatling gun.  Most of the time, 
it's quite hard to control what portion of the body that Chris will hit with 
the stun rod, but when a Majini tries to grab, a stun rod strike at that time 
will usually head stun it.  A stun rod hit followedy by a straight is an 
instant kill to any type of normal Majini.  Since Chris' straight takes 600 
damage in Reunion, a stun rod strike before it will guarantee a melee kill most 
of the time.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 3

*******************************************************************************
Incendiary Grenade -> Stun Rod Strike
*******************************************************************************

Incendiary Grenade are similar to a flash grenade for Wesker in normal Mercs or 
nitro rounds to STARS Chris and Tribal Sheva.  When tossed at a crowd, an 
incendiary grenade will damage all Majini for 500 damage.  Chris can run toward 
the Majini as they fall and hit them with the stun rod to kill them.  He can 
get multiple melee kills very easily with this combination.

Incendiary Grenades are Heavy Metal Chris' best answer for crowds of Majini.  
Just one can instantly burn a whole crowd of six Majini and set all of them up 
for one-hit stun rod melee kills.  Be sure to collect incendiary grenades when 
they are available.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 4

*******************************************************************************
Gatling Gun leg stun shot -> Neck Breaker
*******************************************************************************

Even though the neck breaker is slow, it is the best way to cancel some of the 
more powerful scripted plagas enemies such as the Agitator and Allyson on 
Public Assembly.  The neck breaker is also good for instant invincibility when 
a crowd surrounds Chris.

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 5

*******************************************************************************
Gatling Gun head stun shot -> Straight
*******************************************************************************

Now, this is one melee combination that I wouldn't advise trying for since it 
is quite hard to get a single head shot with a weapon that has such crappy 
precision, but, since Chris' straight does take off 600 damage and a gatling 
gun shot will take 350 damage, a shot to the head followed by a straight punch 
will kill off any normal Majini.

Have you tried it yet?  Can't you see that I just added this useless 
combination to keep a person from emailing me about it once they stumble across 
it...?

-- MELEE KILL COMBINATION 6

*******************************************************************************
Stomp -> Stun Rod attack
Stun Rod Attack to save melee
*******************************************************************************

A stomp will inflict 600 damage on a Majini whether it is standing or is 
grounded.  If an undamaged Majini is hit with a stomp in either position 
(grounded or standing), simply take out the stun rod and run toward it then 
strike it with the stun rod to kill it off.

Heavy Metal Chris' stun rod gives him the power to save any melee kill.  A 
player can be quite creative with attack variety so long as you end every 
combination with a stun rod strike.  This is why keeping up with damage while 
using Heavy Metal Chris is so very important.

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

-- STUN ROD STRIKE WEAKENED MAJINI

I shouldn't even have to list this as a tip, since it should be on your mind 
after reading the info above, but always take out the stun rod and hit any 
Majini that will not yield any sort of stun.  The stun rod can be used alone to 
attack or it can be used in combination with the gatling gun (shoot to weaken 
the Majini then stun rod strike).

-- STUN ROD STRIKES ON CROWDS

In closed areas, especially when a group of Majini surrounds Chris, the stun 
rod by itself is often the better option rather than bringing out the gatling 
gun.  The stun rod hits quicker than the gatling gun and it has wider range, so 
the stun rod is quite effective for crowd control in just about any area.  
Closed areas are where the stun rod shines the most however.  That back alley 
in Public Assembly can be one time building area when Majini are pinned against 
a wall or a corner with the stun rod.

-- FINISH OFF SCRIPTED PLAGAS WITH THE STUN ROD

If Chris can finish off a Majini that is a scripted plagas by hitting it with a 
stun rod strike for the final hit, Chris can avoid the plagas spawn.  This is 
very helpful to know for enemies such as the female scripted Duvalia with the 
shovel on Public Assembly or the masked scripted Duvalias on Ancient Ruins, the 
Agitator scripted Duvalia on Public Assembly, the Allyson scripted Cephalo on 
Public Assmebly, etc.

-- USE INCENDIARY GRENADES FOR CROWDS

Be sure to collect incendiary grenades as much as possible.  When you have a 
big group of Majini in front of Chris, an incendiary grenade tossed into the 
middle of a group of Majini will burn them all and take off enough damage (500 
damage) to where a single stun rod strike will kill them afterwards (350 
damage).

-- UPPERCUT OR RISING UPPER?

This is an area of controversy for me.  Most players will favor the Rising 
Upper over Chris' Uppercut when it comes to Heavy Metal Chris, BUT the Uppercut 
is so much faster!  The Rising Upper will easily gain multiple melee kills 
without prior damage, but a player that is used to using only the uppercut and 
stun rod for the majority of melee killing might feel a bit confined with the 
Rising Upper because of its lengthy animation.

Again, this is all based on preference, but, to me, the normal uppercut and 
stun rod combination is better than the Rising Upper.  I really feel that the 
Rising Upper takes too long when I could be pinning Majini against a wall with 
a quick uppercut along with stun rod strikes.

-- CHRIS' BACKPACK

When surrounded by a crowd, be sure to keep in mind that they can only grab 
Chris from the front thanks to his metal bullet case backpack.  Some weapon 
attacks from behind will hit the backpack instead of hitting Chris as well.  
The main attacks you have to watch out for are long weapon attacks (metal pipe, 
shovel, etc) and boss attacks.

Chris' backpack can deflect gunfire from the Gatling Gun Majini and Majini with 
AKs also.  Basically, when the Gatling Gun Majini starts to fire at Chris from 
a distance, he can turn his back to the Gatling Gun Majini so that his backpack 
deflects the bullets.  Besides looking hilarious, it's actually quite 
effective!

SOLO STRATEGY - 
DUO STRATEGY  - http://tinyurl.com/3h5d89o

---------------
ALL CHRIS TYPES
---------------

-- DO NOT stomp female Majini in the head.

They are basically all random Cephalos and they have the highest chance for 
causing a Cephalo out of any other Majini.  If you stomp the head of a female 
and your Chris doesn't spawn a Cephalo, you were VERY lucky.

-- Random Cephalos:

   - Female
   - Axe
   - Cocktail
   - Green Bottle
   - Long Pipe
   - Sickle

All of the listed Majini have a higher potential to be random Cephalos among 
the Majini types.  Besides the notorious female random Cephalos, the Long Pipe 
Majini can be just as bad.

-- Aim uppercuts away from a Majini's head

In order to make sure that you don't get a random Cephalo, step to the side of 
a Majini during a leg stun (usually the right side) and perform Chris' uppercut 
so Chris doesn't hit the head of the Majini with his fist.  BSAA Chris and 
Safari Chris have the highest potential for causing a random Cephalo.  STARS 
Chris has less of a chance of activating a random Cephalo through an uppercut, 
BUT he can still trigger them just as randomly.

----------
BSAA CHRIS
----------

-- Hand Grenades for the cracked walls

Toss a hand grenade toward the cracked wall of the center building to blow open 
the side of the building and gain quick access to the 60 second time bonus 
inside.  A hand grenade can also be tossed in beweeen the two center buildings 
to blow open both of those cracked walls as well.  BSAA Chris can gain access 
to the two flash grenades inside the building with the stairs.  Most players 
usually toss the hand grenades to blow open the walls at the beginning of a 
run, especially in solo mode.

-- Aim BSAA Chris' uppercuts away from a Majini's head

This goes for all Chris types, but BSAA and Safari Chris have the highest 
potential for causing a random Cephalo through an uppercut melee.

-- Hand Grenade against the Exectioner or not?

It's always best to try to kill the Executioner without the use of a hand 
grenade, but if a crowd is around the Executioner, consider using a hand 
grenade to stun him and kill the crowd.  Getting grabbed while trying to kill 
the Executioner is just as costly to your score as losing out on melee kills 
from the hand grenade - mainly in solo mode.

------------
SAFARI CHRIS
------------

-- Aim Safari Chris' uppercuts away from a Majini's head

This goes for all Chris types, but BSAA and Safari Chris have the highest 
potential for causing a random Cephalo through an uppercut melee.

-- DO NOT headshot and straight punch females

Shoot females in the legs and neck break them.  Shoot them in the legs and lag 
shot then uppercut or just uppecut and stomp.  When you shoot them in the head 
and straight punch, Safari has two high risk chances at causing a random 
Cephalo per female Majini melee kill.

-- ALWAYS be ready for an unexpected Cephalo

Safari Chris WILL get random Cephalos eventually with the way he should be 
played - headshot + straight - so always be ready to save the combo at a 
moment's notice if a Cephalo spawns.

-- Blast the Executioners with rockets

Blast the Executioners with rockets will ruin melee kills often, but it's a 
quick kill and it will save time overall.  One Executioner will have to killed 
with the shotgun.

-----------
STARS CHRIS
-----------

-- Aim Safari Chris' uppercuts away from a Majini's head

This goes for all Chris types, but BSAA and Safari Chris have the highest 
potential for causing a random Cephalo through an uppercut melee.  STARS Chris 
does not have this problem as much - he mainly only gets random Cephalos 
through female uppercuts to the head.

-- Electric Rounds for the cracked walls

Shoot two electric rounds toward the cracked wall of the center building to 
blow open the side of the building and gain quick access to the 60 second time 
bonus inside.  Two electric rounds can also be shot in beweeen the two center 
buildings to blow open both of those cracked walls as well.  STARS Chris can 
gain access to the two flash grenades inside the building with the stairs.  
Most players usually shoot electric rounds to blow open the walls at the 
beginning of a run or toward the middle of a run.

-- Conserve nitro rounds

Conserve nitro rounds for when Chris truly needs them if he gets any.  It's 
best to end a run with nitro rounds than it is to waste them early and then 
suddenly need them toward the end and not have them.  If STARS Chris ends with 
several nitro rounds, you just did well enough to where they weren't even 
needed.  Sometimes normal melee killing is faster than a nitro freeze + 
straight also.

-- Be ready for the Executioner

Rush toward the Executioner when he appears and kill him quickly.  Sometimes 
it's best to let the Executioner come to STARS Chris however - it all depends 
on if Chris has a crowd of Majini behind him or not.  If he does have a crowd

falls and blast his dying body then get back to killing other Majini.

-- Use Grenade or Proximity Bombs to damage the Reaper

When the Reaper appears, lay down a proximity bombs in his path or toss a hand 
grenade below him.  The resulting explosion will damage the Reaper and cause it 
to roll.  When it gets back up, it will expose it's chest weak point shortly 
afterwards.  Shoot it in the chest weak point with then M92F handgun or the 
Ithaca shotgun to finish it off.

Hand Grenades need to hit directly in order to take off enough damage to where 
a single M92F shot to the weak point will kill.  If the hit is not directy, the 
Reaper will hunch over and expose it's other weak points.  If you decide to use 
hand grenades and are unsure if you got a direct hit after the Reaper rolls, 
take out the Ithaca shotgun and shoot the Reaper in the chest weak point to 
have a better chance of killing it with one shot.  With a proximity bombs, the 
hit is already directy, so there is no need to take out the Ithaca shotgun.

------------
SAFARI CHRIS
------------

-- Safari vs the Reaper

Use two of the rocket launchers to kill two of the Reapers.  When facing the 
third Reaper, you'll have to use a hand grenade or proximity bombs like BSAA 
Chris in order to damage the Reaper then shoot it in its chest weak point when 
it rises.  The same methods as using the explosives for BSAA Chris still apply 
here, so make try to make the explosive hit directly then shoot the Reaper in 
the chest weak with the SIG P226 handgun or the M3 shotgun after it rolls.

-----------
STARS CHRIS
-----------

-- STARS Chris vs the Reaper

With precise aim with the M29 magnum, STARS Chris can shoot the Reaper in the 
chest weak point when it open its weak point as it walks and kill it instantly. 
He can also shoot it in one of its shoulder weak points as it hunches over and 
scurries toward him then shoot it in another should weak point when it bends 
over.  Shooting it in a should weak point will take two magnum shots to kill 
it.

STARS Chris can also take advantage of Flash rounds, Acid rounds and Electric 
rounds for stunning a Reaper.  Flash rounds and Acid rounds will stun a Reaper 
and make it expose its chest weak point within two shots.  Flash rounds will 
stun the Reaper with two indirect shots and Acid rounds will stun the Reaper 
with two direct shots.  Electric rounds will stun a Reaper to where it will 
reveal its shoulder one weak point and one more Electric round shot directly at 
a Reaper's should weak point will make it show its chest weak point.  Once 
again, keep in mind that the second Electric round MUST be shot DIRECTLY at a 
should weak point to stun the Reaper completely.

-- Nitrogen rounds for scripted Cephalos

BSAA and Safari Chris must neck break all scripted Cephalos, but STARS Chris 
can shoot a scripted Cephalo Majini with a nitrogen round and then straight 
punch it to instantly kill it and cancel the Cephalo in the process.  This 
helps out greatly when a scripted Cephalo Majini is grounded or when it simply 
refuses to leg stun.

                                                                         [ST03]

-- Chris vs Shield Majini

Try to kill off all shield Majini with an uppercut melee.  With BSAA Chris and 
Safari Chris, shoot the Shield Majini twice in the legs then uppercut, with 
STARS Chris, shoot the Shield Majini three times in the legs then uppercut.  
Obviously, your aiming needs to be very precise with each Chris type in order 
to hit the legs each time.

If a Shield Majini ever gets right up in your face, try to back off and give 
yourself some space in order to get a view of its legs.  If it comes down to 
it, take out a powered weapon and blast the Shield Majini if it won't get out 
of your face - this is more of a last resort though.

With enough training a Chris player can use shield Majini to hit Bui Kickwa 
with uppercut and hit weakened Wetland Majini.  All of this takes practice 
though.

-- Stay off the Top Bridge

DO NOT fight on the bridge at the top.  Chris will be at such a disadvantage 
against Wetland Majini that are below him while on the bridge.  Their legs will 
not be in view that well because of the angle.  It's far better to lead Majini 
toward the cave above the bridge or toward building below the bridge.

-- Melee Kill Cephalos

It's a lot easier to tell when a Cephalo is set up for melee on a Wetland 
Majini stage when compared to other stages.  Like the normal Wetland Majini, 
their Cephalos will get up off the ground after being knocked down if they have 
not suffered enough damage prior to the fall.  This can come in handy for 
knowing when they are weak enough to where a stomp will kill them however.

Basically, if a Cephalo falls to the ground after weapon fire and stays there, 
it can most likely be stomped to finish it off for a melee kill!  With BSAA 
Chris it can often be stomped after two shotgun blasts, with Safari Chris, a 
few SIG P226 shots followed by a shotgun blast will often set them up for 
stomps and with STARS Chris, you'll have to shoot the Cephalo once with the 
magnum then fire at its legs and hope that it falls to set it up for a stomp.

-- Melee Kill Bui Kichwa

All Chris types can melee kill Bui Kichwa by working them into uppercuts on 
Wetland Majini.  Most of the time, an uppercut will kill a Bui Kichwa.  STARS 
Chris can use nitrogren rounds to freeze and shatter Bui Kickwa while hopping 
against them also.

----------
BSAA CHRIS
----------

-- M92F chest shot + M92F leg shot + Uppercut
   vs
   M92F leg shot + M92F leg shot + Uppercut

BSAA Chris can kill off a Wetland Majini with each of the melee kill methods 
listed above, but there is a catch to using each one.  If a player shoots the 
chest first then shoots the legs, if the Majini falls, it will remain grounded 
for a stomp.  The bad part about shooting the chest first is that Chris cannot 
shoot have a second chance at a leg stun after the first leg shot.  If the 
first leg shot fails to get a leg stun, the next leg shot will kill.

When firing at the legs from the start, Chris will get three chances at a leg 
stun - he can hit the Majini three times in the legs with the handgun.  The 
only bad part about shooting the legs first is that if the Majini is grounded 
on the first or second shot, it will automatically get up off the ground.  It 
will only receive enough damage to remain grounded for a stomp after the third 
shot.

It's a good idea to experiment with both melee kill setups and choose what 
works the best for you.  Really, shooting the legs first is the better option, 
especially if you try for a lag shot.

-- M92F leg shot + M92F lag shot + Uppercut

This is by far the best way to kill Wetland Majini with BSAA Chris, but it will 
take practice with timing.  Basically, you gain a leg stun then run up to the 
Majini and fire a shot at it then perform the uppercut melee DIRECTLY after the 
second shot.  This method will save melee kills the most since leg stuns are 
sometimes rare during some runs.  This is much easier to do in duo when lag is 
present.

------------
SAFARI CHRIS
------------

-- SIG P226 headshot + Straight

Safari will have no problem killing off Wetland Majini with his main melee kill 
setup.  Wetland Majini only have a little over 700 HP most of the time, so it 
doesn't matter if his handgun headshot + straight punch takes off a little less 
than 800 HP unlike with Town Majini.

The main flaw with Safari while fighting Wetland Majini is that his straight 
punch takes off 400 damage and his handgun takes off 350 or slight less.  Add 
those up and you'll always get over 700 damage, which means that Safari cannot 
hit a Majini with a straight punch then shoot it again without killing it!  
Basically, if any Majini get caught in the straight punch of another Majini, 
Safari Chris cannot hit them with a handgun shot afterwards!  He will have to 
use a flash grenade to stun Majini that have hit with a straight punch from the 
start then straight punch them again.

-- Flash Grenade + SIG P226 lag shot + Straight

A Safari Chris player can make up an actual "Cobra Straight" after a flash 
grenade toss against a Wetland Majini.  It's like the ghetto version of a Cobra 
Strike that you can perform through a lag shot.  Basically, toss a flash 
grenade to stun a Wetland Majini then stand near the stunned Majini and fire a 
shot at any portion of its body with the SIG P226 handgun and then INSTANTLY 
activate the straight punch.  The straight punch will kill (350 + 400 damage).  
Obviously, this will take practice, but it can be quite useful on both Village 
and Ancient Ruins once Safari obtains flash grenades!

-----------
STARS CHRIS
-----------

-- Nitrogen Rounds against Wetland Majini

Nitrogen rounds can truly make a score on Wetland Majini stages.  Since Wetland 
Majini can pile up SO much at times, they can be grouped together very easily 
and frozen to set them up for straight punch melee kills.  With Village's 
constant threat of scripted Cephalos, the nitrogen rounds will help out in 
limiting the Cephalos also - Chris can freeze scripted Cephalo Wetland Majini 
then shatter them and cancel the Cephalo.

-- Nitrogen Rounds on Explosive Arrow Majini

STARS Chris can freeze an Explosive arrow Majini with a nitrogen round, but the 
hit must be DIRECT.  If the hit is indirect, the Explosive Arrow Majini will 
explode and cause other Majini around it to explode.

-- Nitrogen Rounds on Bui Kichwa

Besides working Bui Kichwa into uppercuts, STARS Chris can freeze them near 
some type of obstacle where he can land on them.  He can freeze them below any 
ledge (the hill with the combo chest, etc.) then drop on them.  He can freeze 
them outside the bottom hut window then hop over on top of them.  All of these 
methods are considered a melee kill on a Bui Kichwa.

-- Torch Majini vs Chris

Many of the Torch Majini on Ancient Ruins are scripted Cephalos, so it's really 
best to neck break the majority of them.  They have over 1000 HP each, so even 
if they aren't a scripted Cephalo, it's best to neck break them or critical 
head stomp them when they fall.

-- Duvalia vs Chris

When you know a Wetland Majini is a scripted Duvalia, it's always best to try 
for a leg stun and neck break it if possible.  If the scripted Duvalia can be 
knocked to the ground, such as the Explosive Arrown Majini, Chris can stomp the 
Majini and cancel the Duvalia spawn.

----------
BSAA CHRIS
----------

-- BSAA Chris vs Duvalia

With his M92F handgun, BSAA Chris will get a chance for one leg stun on each 
scripted Duvalia on Ancient Ruins.  After that, the Duvalia will spawn with the 
second shot.  Once the Duvalia spawns, be ready for it and toss a flash grenade 
or throw a hand grenade at its legs to kill it.  The hand grenade will 
obviously ruin melee kills, but it's far better than trying to kill the Duvalia 
with BSAA Chris' shotgun.

------------
SAFARI CHRIS
------------

-- Safari Chris vs Duvalia

Safari Chris cannot easily cancel a Duvalia spawn at all.  His SIG P226 handgun 
takes off too much and will activate each scripted Duvalia after the first shot 
to the head, body or leg.  Safari will need to find a flash grenade, hand 
grenade or use one of his rocket launchers to kill the spawning Duvalia.  
Duvalias are really more of a threat than the Giant Majini, so it can be best 
to save the rocket launcher for sudden Duvalia spawns.

NOTE: There are two hand grenade on the railing in the center of Ancient Ruins 
that can come in handy for Duvalias.  There are also two hand grenades near the 
90 seconds in the northwest.  Two flash grenades are near the timer in the east 
and many beginning Wetland Majini will drop flash grenades once they are 
defeated.

-----------
STARS CHRIS
-----------

-- Nitrogen Rounds against Wetland Majini

Once again, Nitrogen Rounds can work extremely well against Wetland Majini.  
They will help to cancel Duvalias and Cephalos as well!  Be sure to shoot 
Explosive Arrow Majini directly with a nitrogen round if one is in the area 
when you attempt to freeze to keep them from exploding!

-- STARS Chris vs Duvalia

STARS Chris is much like BSAA Chris in that he will get one chance for a leg 
stun on scripted Duvalias.  After that one chance, the Duvalia will spawn.  
STARS Chris' starting electric rounds will take off tremendous damage from a 
Duvalia after it spawns.  His M29 magnun will take off some serious damage from 
a Duvalia as well.  A few shots to the leg and a shot to the mouth will usually 
finish off the Duvalia.  A Chris player can just spawn the legs with magnum 
shots also.

The main flaw with STARS Chris when fighting a Duvalia with his starting ammo 
is that he must wait for a Duvalia to fully spawn before he will be able to 
damage it greatly.  Shooting the Duvalia while it spawns will still take off 
damage, but there is about a 50% loss of damage per shot while the Majini 
mutates into the Duvalia.

STARS Chris can instantly cancel a spawning Duvalia with a flash round or 
nitrogen round.  A nitrogen round shot directly at a spawning Duvalia will 
instantly kill the Duvalia.  Keep in mind that the Majini MUST be MUTATING for 
the nitrogen round to canel the Duvalia.  Since the Duvalia's are plagas, any 
shot (direct or indirect) with a flash round will instantly kill the Duvalia 
like with any other plagas also.

                                                                         [ST05]

The same rules for canceling and killing a Duvalia still are in tact for 
Experimental Facility as well.  Only BSAA Chris can STARS Chris can gain a leg 
stun on scripted Duvalia for a neck breaker melee kill.

There are a few ways to cancel the two indentifiable Duvalias however:

- Armored Scripted Duvalia

a) Wait for the Armored Majini to start to climb over a railing then hop over 
the railing and then stomp it.

b) Fall down a ladder then hit the Majini on the way down as it climbs then 
kill it while it is on the floor.  No melee kill with this method.

- Gas Mask Scripted Duvalia

b) With BSAA Chris and Safari, shoot the scripted Duvalia directly in the gas 
mask to knock it over then stomp it while it is on the floor.

-- Melee Kill Lickers

BSAA Chris can flip a Licker over with his shotgun if you take out the Ithaca 
shotgun and shoot the back leg of the Licker directly.  If the pellet spread 
hit the Licker just right, it will fall backwards on its back and then kick its 
legs and be open for a stab melee kill.  This takes practice and luck.

Safari Chris can flip a Licker with his M3 shotgun just like BSAA Chris can

is about luck.

-- Melee Kill Lickers

The best way to melee kill Lickers with STARS Chris is through nitrogen rounds. 
Chris can freeze a Licker near any sort of obstacle that makes him hop against 
the Licker in any way then Chris can hop into the Licker and touch it while 
hopping to shatter the Licker for a melee kills.

Examples of frozen Licker melee kills:

- Hopping over a railing to hit a frozen Licker
- Falling from a high area to land on a frozen Licker
- Hopping across a platform to land on a Licker (first floor hopping platforms)
- Dropping off a raised platform to land on a frozen Licker

STARS Chris can flip a Licker and set it up for a stab melee with an explosive 
round or acid round.  The Licker must be shot in either of its front legs.  You 
can also fire at the floor in front of the Licker.  The Licker MUST land on its 
back and the shot MUST not kill it.  Once the Licker lands on its back, it will 
kick its legs then Chris can stab it.

Stomping a dynamite Majini in the head is like saying "I want a Cephalo now,

are random Cephalos on Missile Area.  Some of them are not, but it will vary 
per spawning region.

-- Aim uppercuts away from the head

With both BSAA Chris and STARS Chris, be sure to step around to the side of a 
stunned Majini and aim your uppercuts away from the Majini's head to prevent a 
random Cephalo spawn.  BSAA Chris seems to get a higher chance for random 
Cephalos with his uppercut, but all Chris types should aim uppercuts away from 
the Majini's head.

-- BSAA Chris vs Gatling Gun Majini

BSAA Chris really needs to use hand grenades to stun any of the Gatling Gun 
Majini.  Stun them then run up to them and toss a hand grenade below them when 
the "Backhand" prompt appears then quickly activate the backhand melee.  Chris 
will finish the Backhand as the hand grenade goes off and this will return the 
Gatling Gun Majini.

- Yellow Gatling Gun Majini

Hand Grenade stun -> Backhand -> Hand Grenade Stun -> 2 Ithaca shots -> 
Backhand

- Red Gatling Gun Majini

Hand Grenade stun -> Backhand -> Hand Grenade Stun -> Backhand -> Hand Grenade 
stun -> 2 Ithaca shots -> Backhand

------------
SAFARI CHRIS
------------

-- Safari Chris vs Gatling Gun Majini

Use Safari Chris' rocket launcher on one of the Yellow Gatling Gun Majinis and 
the Red Gatling Gun Majini.  It's good to grab two hand grenades to help Safari 
Chris deal with the other Yellow Gatling Gun Majini.  Stun it with a hand 
grenade then rush up and toss another hand grenade below it then activate the 
backhand to restun it afterwards.  Safari's shotgun will kill quicker, so it 
should only take one M3 shot to finish off the Yellow Gatling Gun Majini before 
the final backhand.  This can differ though since Safari's M3 spread is so 
random!

-- Headshots on Missile Area with Safari Chris

Missile is a VERY bad stage for Safari Chris.  Since his main melee setup 
(handgun headshot + Straight) greatly increases Cephalo chances, he can be a 
total trainwreck on Missile Area when played as a head stun character.  You 
might want to resort to playing him like BSAA Chris on Missile Area most of the 
time and only take risks on his headshot + straight every now and then.

It's really good to start shooting the legs of a Majini - once you gain a leg 
stun, run up to the Majini and lag shot then cancel the shot into an uppercut.  
This will save melee kills.  Playing him as a leg stun character will still 
ruin melee kills with his high-powered shotgun however.  Remember to aim his 
uppercut away from the head just like with BSAA Chris!

-- Cephalo melee

Safari Chris will get a lot of Cephalos most of the time, so try for a melee 
kill against them.  It's a good idea to fire off about two handgun shots at the 
Cephalo then shoot it with the shotgun from close or mid range then attempt a 
stomp.  Trying to hit it from up close with a single blast then stomp it 
afterwards hardly ever works for me.

-----------
STARS CHRIS

-- STARS Chris vs Gatling Gun Majini

STARS Chris really has no problem against either Gatling Gun Majini type.  The 
Red Gatling Gun Majini takes several magnum shots, but at least you can work 
Majini into backhands performed on him.  STARS Chris can easily aim backhands 
on the Gatling Gun Majini at other Majini that move up to attack him and get 
multiple melees in the process.

- Yellow Gatling Gun Majini

4 M29 shots to leg -> Backhand
2 M29 shots to leg -> Backhand -> 1 M29 shot to leg -> Backhand

- Red Gatling Gun Majini

6 M29 shots to leg -> Backhand
4 M29 shots to leg -> Backhand -> 2 M29 shots to leg -> Backhand
1 M29 shot to leg -> Backhand -> 1 M29 shot to leg -> Backhand -> 1 M29 shot to 
leg -> 1 M29 shot to body -> Backhand

-- Nitrogen Rounds and Flash Rounds

Both Nitrogen Rounds and Flash Rounds can both be a blessing and a curse on 
Missile Area.  Since Chris will be dealing with dynamite Majini and cocktail 
Majini very often, both grenade rounds can ruin melee kills very easily.  If 
you use either one, try to look around the area to make sure that no dynamite 
or cocktail Majini are nearby.  Both of them are just as bad as the other.  
Flash rounds are good for saving the combo whenever you accidentally spawn a 
Cephalo, but you'll likely create an explosion of flames around Chris when 
using a flash round.

compared to other Chris types with only his weak Ithaca.  The grenade launcher 
with flame rounds can be used to stun the Chainsaw Majini, but it still doesn't 
really help all that much.  The best to kill off the Chainsaw Majini with BSAA 
Chris is to find some sort of corner or narrow area and put Chris' back to a 
wall then fire at the Chainsaw Majini's chest as it approaches.

Shoot any other Majini that tries to interfere with your shotgun rampage!  
Obviously, this method will take QUITE A WHILE against the Blue Chainsaw 
Majini.  When the Blue Chainsaw Majini revives, choos from the following

a) Toss two hand grenades below it while it gets up to finish it off before it 
starts berserking.
b) Stand above the reviving chainsaw Majini and aim at its head. When it start 
to move blast it in the head as it revives.
c) Have a flash grenade handy and toss as the Blue Chainsaw Majini runs toward 
Chris.  Run up to it while it is stunned then blast it with the Ithaca to 
finish it off.
d) Shoot the berserking Chainsaw Majini with a flame round or stun it with a 
flash round then finish it off with the Ithaca - flame round shots by 
themselves can work well at killing off the berserking Chainsaw Majini since 
his health is so low.  They take off 500 damage each and he only has 1500 HP.

-- Grab the Grenade Launcher

It's very important to grab the grenade launcher with BSAA Chris.  He can 
REALLY use the possible nitrogren round or flash round ammo drops if they 
appears.  He cannot always cancel the stages many scripted Cephalos from not 
gaining a leg stun, so both ammo types can help him out great for doing.  
Literally, freeze a scripted Cephalo Majini when it falls if it refuses a leg 
stun or just shoot the head to activate the Cephalo then blast it with a flash 
round to rid yourself of it.

------------
SAFARI CHRIS
------------

-- Safari Chris vs Chainsaw Majini

Safari Chris has the advantage over the Chris types for this stage with his 
rocket launcher for both Chainsaw Majini pairs.  Both of his rocket launchers 
can be used to kill both pairs instantly.  He will have to worry about killing 
off the reviving Blue Chainsaw Majini afterwards however - use the same methods 
as BSAA Chris for the most part.  His P226 handgun CAN help out for killing the 
berserking Chainsaw Majini as well.

Chris' M3 shotgun can work quite well against Red Chainsaw Majini.  It will 
literally tear through them in about four shots from close range.  Just like 
with BSAA Chris, it's good to put Chris' back to a corner when facing off 
against the Chainsaw Majini.

-- Safari Chris owns Ship Deck

Out of all stages, Ship Deck is Safari best stage overall.  The best part is 
that he doesn't have to worry about random Cephalos!  He can kill off the main 
threat of the stage (Chainsaw Majini pair) instantly as well!  Like BSAA Chris, 
Safari Chris can also take advantage of the grenade launcher and get possible 
nitro and flash drops that will help him.  He really shines on Ship Deck more 
than any other stage overall.

-----------
STARS CHRIS
-----------

-- STARS Chris vs Chainsaw Majini

Against any Chainsaw Majini, always start with a shot to the leg to stun it. 
After the leg shot, finish the Chainsaw Majini off with headshot or leg shots 
(for melee killing).  It's important that STARS Chris puts his back to a corner 
much like BSAA Chris when fighting a pair of Chainsaw Majini.  Spread damage 
among the two but kill the red Chainsaw Majini first in order to keep the combo 
going - since the blue won't count as a kill until he falls from berserk 
status.

When the blue Chainsaw Majini revives, shoot it in the head or body while it 
tries to get up to instantly kill it.  Chris can do a melee kill against it 
also, but it's really worthless unless the Chainsaw Majini has already revived 
and is coming toward him.  He will need a flash grenade to stun then shoot the 
Chainsaw Majini in the arm once, shoot it anywhere with one SIG shot (just in 
case) then perform a Hook for a melee kill.  The SIG shot is only a precaution 
just in case his Hook hits the arm of the Chainsaw Majini.

                                                                         [ST08]

BSAA CHRIS
----------

-- BSAA Chris vs Prison Executioners

BSAA Chris can have a very tough time against Prison Executioners since they 
require so many Ithaca blast to finish off.  The best way to deal with one is 
to get it to perform an attack then dodge the attack and run toward it and 
blast it twice with the Itaca shotgun to stun it.  Keep blasting it it then 
uppercut before it recovers and continue to blast it.  Wait for it to attack 
once again then dodge again and repeat.

It can be set up for a counter attack in the following ways:

a) Run around it's left side (your right) when it reaches out to grab then 
blast it from behind.
b) Get it to perform its overhead then back up to dodge it then shoot it while 
in close range.

------------
SAFARI CHRIS
------------

-- Safari Chris vs Prison Executioners

Obviously you'll want to save the rocket launchers to kill the Red Executioner 
with Safari.  MAKE SURE that the hit against the Red Executioner is a direct 
hit since it CAN survive an indirect hit at times.  Look at the BSAA Chris 
section for killing the remaining Executioners with the M3 shotgun.  Safari 
Chris can kill the Executioner a bit faster thanks to his high-powered shotgun.

-----------
STARS CHRIS
-----------

-- STARS Chris vs Prison Executioners

The Prison Executioners on Prison can be a real pain for STARS Chris due to the 
heavy amount of magnum ammo they will take to finish off combined with the fact 
that magnum ammo can be rare.  In a sense, STARS Chris relies on luck with 
magnum ammo drops when facing the Prison Exectuioners.  It's very wise to 
conserve magnum ammo as much as possible with STARS Chris.  Literally, use the 
machine gun to weaken Big Majini Majini to where Chris weaken them further with 
one magnum shot instead of having to use two shots.  Kill Cephalos with flash 
rounds or electric rounds to conserve magnum ammo.

WARRIOR CHRIS
-------------

-- Warrior Chris vs Executioner

Warrior Chris can use a hand grenade to stun the Executioner, but it's really 
much better to trick him into attacking then quickly rush behind him and shoot 
him with the Hydra.  Make him perform a grab from close range and rush around 
his right side then blast him from the back or make him perform his overhead 
swing from long range then rush ahead him and blast him.  Either way, he will 
die within a few shots from the Hydra because of its intense spread.

-----------------
HEAVY METAL CHRIS
-----------------

-- Stun rod kill often

Public Assembly is full of Plagas enemies so, it's very important to stun rod 
kill often after about 80 combo since the scripted plagas enemies will begin to 
spawn more often then.  It's really best to get in the habit of stun rod 
killing overall with Heavy Metal Chris however.

-- Heavy Metal Chris vs Executioner

Heavy Metal Chris will need to use a hand grenade or proximity bomb to stun the 
Executioner.  If you don't use one, Chris will just have to fire at the 
Executioner from a distance with the gatling gun - keep in that, that he can be 
stunned without a hand grenade or proximity bomb with Heavy Metal Chris.

                                                                         [RS02]

WARRIOR CHRIS
-------------

-- Warrior Chris vs Reaper

Warrior Chris basically has no problem with a Reaper thanks to his Hydra.  
Simply aim for the chest weak point of a Reaper as it moves toward Chris and 
wait for it to open.  Once the chest weak point opens, blast it with the Hydra 
then blast the Reaper's should weak points to kill it eventually with enough 
shots.

-----------------
HEAVY METAL CHRIS
-----------------

-- Heavy Metal Chris vs Reaper

Heavy Metal Chris can weaken a Reaper easily with hand grenade or proximity 
bomb explosion.  It's really best to lay down a proximity bomb when it follows 
Chris in order to hit it directly.  Once it rolls after the explosion, shoot it 
in its chest weak point when it opens it up after the roll.  It will always 
reveal the chest weak point when turning!

                                                                         [RS03]

-------------
WARRIOR CHRIS
-------------

-- Warrior Chris vs Wetland Majini

Wetland Majini are very weak (700 HP), so Warrior Chris can kill them off with 
an uppercut after a single shot leg stun with his handgun.  Any undamaged 
Majini that is hit with an uppercut off of an other Majini will remain grounded 
for a stomp.

-- Warrior Chris vs Giant Majini

Aim for the legs of a Giant Majini and keep blasting it with the Hydra and 
following it back when slide backwards.  Only uppercut if Chris is about to get 
hit.  The shots take off quite a bit from close range, so make each shot to the 
legs with the Hydra VERY close to kill it quickly.

-----------------
HEAVY METAL CHRIS
-----------------

-- Heavy Metal Chris vs Wetland Majini

After gaining a single leg stun, Heavy Metal Chris can kill off a Majini with 
an uppercut.  Undamage Majini that are hit with an uppercut will remain 
grounded and ready for a stomp also!

-- Heavy Metal Chris vs Giant Majini

Heavy Metal Chris really only has a problem with Giant Majini when other 
enemies are in the area with him.  Giant Majini are really no problem for Heavy 
Metal Chris otherwise - just aim at the legs of the Giant Majini then blast 
them with the gatling gun.  Don't even worry about uppercutting, just spam 
gatling gun fire.

                                                                         [RS04]

WARRIOR CHRIS

-- Warrior Chris vs Torch Majini

Always attempt a neck break against Torch Majini since many of them are 
scripted Cephalos and they also have a good bit of health.

-----------------
HEAVY METAL CHRIS
-----------------

-- Warrior Chris vs Scripted Plagas

There are several scripted plagas that can be seen ahead of time on Ancient 
Ruins.  The Majini with helmets on the east side area the easiest to see 
coming.  Kill helmeted Majini and Torch Majini with the stun rod as the final 
hit.  With Torch Majini, neck breaks can work just as well since they have a 
high health amount.

                                                                         [RS05]

-- Warrior Chris vs Base Majini

The Base Majini in Mercenaries Reunion still have bad head shot detection on 
them for the most part, so Warrior Chris is best played as a leg stun character 
on Experimental Facility.  Shoot the body and then the leg for a possible leg 
stun to set up an uppercut melee kill.  Warrior Chris can also gain one leg 
stun with the handgun then take damage of lag shot and handgun shot + Uppercut 
to melee kill - this will give him two chances for a leg stun.

-----------------
HEAVY METAL CHRIS
-----------------

-- Melee kill Lickers

Heavy Metal Chris can melee kill Lickers the easiest out of any Reunion 
character with his stun rod.  Most Lickers will die after three stun rod hits 
or two gatling gun shots and a stun rod hit.  Keep in mind that the Licker has 
several portions of its body that affect damage delivered do it.  Chris is most 
likely going to hit either the front legs or the head, so the amount of attacks 
it takes to kill one with a stun rod will vary at times.

Licker Beta (900 HP)

Heart (+300%)
Head (+10%)
Body (normal damage)
Front Legs (-30%)
Rear Legs (-20%)

WARRIOR CHRIS
-------------

-- Having a Barry/Rebecca partner in duo

When Warrior Chris has a Barry or Rebecca partner in duo Missile Area, he will 
not have a way to cancel the many scripted Cephalos on the top walkway in the 
middle of the stage.  Basically, Chris will have to allow the Cephalo to spawn 
then attempt to melee kill it or bullet kill the Cephalo since he will not have 
a neck breaker!  It's far better to have some other partner besides a Barry or 
Rebecca partner if you start on the 90 second end on Missile Area in duo.

-- PSG-1 combo saving

Since Missile Area has so many camping Majini that like to stand on high 
walkways, Warrior Chris' rifle can come in handy for shooting these camping 
Majini.

-- Warrior Chris vs Gatling Gun Majini

The Hydra is really the best weapon to kill the Gatling Gun Majini with.  
Trying to melee kill the Gatling Gun Majini will be tough since Warrior Chris 
can only easily perform an uppercut after a Hydra blast pushes the Gatling Gun 
Majini back.

The Gatling Gun Majini can be stunned with PSG-1 shots to the legs or head and 
set up for a backhand or haymaker melee as well.  The PSG-1 will not be an as 
much of an instant stun as a Hydra blast however.

-----------------
HEAVY METAL CHRIS
-----------------

-- Cancelling Cephalos

Missile Area has a bunch of scripted Cephalos on it and most of them spawn when 
a player stands on the middle top walkway.  Heavy Metal Chris can easily cancel 
all of the scripted Cephalos and gain a melee kill on them with his stun rod.  
Heavy Metal Chris can really be the best character for Missile Area on Reunion 
if you know how to play him and can save the Gatling Gun Majini with him.

-- Heavy Metal Chris vs Gatling Gun Majini

Chris will need a hand grenade or proximity bomb to stun the Gatling Gun Majini 
in Missile Area.  He can easily spam damage on them with his gatling gun.  It's 
really best not to try for a melee kill on them - Chris' gatling gun should 
remain firing once you start to fire.

One good thing about saving a Gatling Gun Majini boss with Heavy Metal Chris is 
that he can take more damage with his bullet proof jacket and he can also 
shield himself from gunfire with his steel backpack!  Basically, a Heavy Metal 
Chris player can turn Chris' back on the Gatling Gun Majini when it starts to 
fire and allow the backpack to keep the bullets from hitting him - you will 
have to sort of aim the backpack toward the bullet spray in order for this to 
work.

                                                                         [RS07]

-- Warrior Chris vs Chainsaw Majini

Warrior Chris can easily kill a chainsaw Majini with his Hydra from close 
range.  He doesn't even really need to stun one since he can blast it in its 
body for max spread damage to make it fall rather fast.  Against berserking 
blue Chainsaw Majini, Warrior Chris can stand over their bodies and blast them 
with the Hydra as they get up or he can shoot them from long range with his 
PSG-1.

-- PSG-1 for camping bowgun Majini

Ship Deck can be very annoying when it comes to the Majini that will camp on 
the crane tower and north tower when a player moves into the north and west 
spawning region.  Warrior Chris has the advantage of easy long distance 
firepower with his PSG-1 however, so he can easily kill these nuisances if they 
are spotted while they camp on either tower.  Warrior Chris can be a great 
asset on Ship Deck because of his rifle.

-----------------
HEAVY METAL CHRIS
-----------------

-- Heavy Metal Chris vs Chainsaw Majini

Heavy Metal Chris has a bad problems with stunning a Chainsaw Majini.  He must 
stun one with a hand grenade or a proximity bomb.  Other than stunning one with 
an explosive, he can't stun it with shots fired to its body.  Against a 
berserking blue chainsaw Majini, Heavy Metal Chris can lay down a proximity 
bombs directly on the body of the blue Chainsaw Majini before it wakes up then 
have the proximity bomb kill it when it tries to revive.  From a distance, 
Heavy Metal Chris can toss hand grenades at a berserking blue chainsaw Majini.

                                                                         [RS08]

- Warrior Chris vs Prison Executioners

Warrior Chris' Hydra works very well against a Prison Executioner because of 
its intense spread per shot and overall damage.  Before shooting a Prison 
Executoner, it's best to make it attack with a grab or an overhead attack then 
dodge the attack (run around its left side when it grabs) and blast it with the 
Hydra from behind.  Use a hand grenade to stun an Executioner or clear enemies 
away from it if needed.

-----------------
HEAVY METAL CHRIS
-----------------

-- Heavy Metal Chris vs Prison Executioners

Oh, dear god... the Public Assembly Executioners can be annoying enough with 
Heavy Metal Chris and now you have two with even more health!  There is no real 
special way to defeat an Executioner with Heavy Metal Chris aside from stunning 
it with a hand grenade or a proximity bomb followed by spamming it with gatling 
gun fire.  Each Executioner will take several stuns and bullets in order to 
kill, so Heavy Metal Chris is going to have a VERY difficult time defeating a 
Prison Executioner in solo play on Prison.  In duo, he can fall back on his 
partner.

Watching videos to see the gameplay of what I showcase in this guide is 
extremely helpful.  It's really best to see gameplay in video format to 
understand it better in The Mercenaries or The Mercenaries Reunion.

The following is a list of several Chris players' Youtube Channels on Youtube. 
Most of these players used only Chris for many of their runs.  I only list 
players that have been around for a while, not those that started within the 
past year, so these are not all current Chris players.  Really, the majority of 
these players have moved on to other games, but these players have the best 
examples of the way Chris is used today since many of them were playing as 
Chris from the beginning.

Shameless plug again!

I mainly only used STARS Chris early on, but recently switched over to BSAA 
Chris more often.  I used mainly Heavy Metal Chris in Mercs Reunion, though I 
did use Warrior for some runs.  Most of my runs are duo with various partners. 
The majority of my runs are with all different partners since I never truly had 
a consistent main partner for duo - I'm often busy with other games.

NOTE 1: One interesting thing I'd like to point out about my videos is that I 
started with Type D then switched over to Type B after the first six months I 
started Mercs seriously.  I feel that they show off the advantages of Type B 
over a control type without camera control.

NOTE 2: I have two Missile Area runs with cha55163 on my page.  Cha was the 
original STARS Chris solo player, and his side of my 911K Missile Area BSAA

runs by RAGIA_2_RAGI and rainbow_495 on his page for some epic double Chris duo 
runs.

Console: PlayStation 3 (She mains Sheva)
Control Type: Type B (She is Sheva exclusive)
Region: United Kingdom (This is a plug for her)

She'd kill me if I didn't mention her, so be sure to check out JuJu's page. 
JuJu and Seitengrate have many Sheva and Chris duo runs which you can see both 
sides of if you visit her page as well as Seitengrate's.

She used Chris every now and then with Seitengrate during duo runs.  She also 
used Warrior Chris in Reunion a few times because... she has this thing for 
Warrior's well-defined back muscles.

Special Thanks to all Resident Evil 5 Mercs players also.  I've had good
