    I    INTRODUCTION
    --------------------
    
    Shadowrun is a future type RPG brought to your nearest SNES by the
    folks at DataEAST. I have decided to write a FAQ/Walkthrough for this
    merely because how in depth and fun this game really is. Shadowrun was
    released way back in 1993 when the SNES was beginning to hit its peak
    as the world's best video game unit. As forgotten as this game has
    become I still felt it deserved this great FAQ to do it justice once
    and for all. Remember this guide may only be located at Gamefaqs.com,
    but if you would like a copy just e-mail and I'll even send you a link.
    Also this guide cannot appear within a pop up or banner on any site and
    is intended for private use only. Enjoy the guide!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    IV    TIPS
    -------------
    
    -  Whenever you attempt to take down large amounts of enemies you
    should always hire a shadowrunner to help out. Preferably a mercenary.
    
    -  Always pick up nuyen (money) that you find on a dead enemy or
    wherever. You need lots of dough to afford efficient equipment.
    
    -  If you find yourself stuck or lost talk to the people and ask about
    questions pertinent to you're current mission.
    
    -  Take items that are just lying around. Many of them can/will be
    vital later in the game.
    
    -  Never try to take on enemies toe to toe. You will usually have a
    better chance of a kill if you move and shoot rather then shoot.
    
    -  Save nuyen! To get good equipment and information you will have to
    posses large quantities of money.
    
    -  Learn magic. Learning magic will make you're journey throughout
    Seattle much easier.
    
    -  Do not shoot at innocent people. Doing so will result in a loss of
    Karma which you use to improve Jake's skills.
    
    -  Learn the Matrix. It will be an annoyance throughout the game if you
    don't learn the controls and when to jack out.
    
    -  Plan where you are going beforehand. Nothing is as frustrating as to
    be lost and under heavy fire.
    
    -  Use items on other items to get results. Ex. Use a Safe Key on the
    Safe.
    
    -  Take care of you're shadowrunners. If they are low on HP, cast Heal
    so you can get maximum performance from them.

    V    STORY
    --------------
    
                          "THE YEAR IS 2050"
    
    And the megaplexes are monsters casting long shadows. When you become a
    shadowrunner that's where you live...
    in the cracks between the giant cooperate structures. The megacorps are
    powerful in a time when power means information...
    ...computer information flowing in the global network called the
    MATRIX.
    
    Sound good? We'll it should. You're basic mission in this game is to
    get revenge on Drake, the guy who sent the hitmen to try to kill you.
    You must venture through Seattle's streets to gang ridden ships. Good
    luck!

    VI   WALKTHROUGH
    --------------------
    
    Location: Morgue
    Items: Slap Patch, Torn Paper, and Scalpel
    Enemies: None
    
    Watch the cinema where two doctors put a dead man into a slab. The will
    now leave he room. Take control of the man now. Use the pointer, which
    will be you're be source of action for the game, and grab the Torn
    Paper. Now open the right fridge in the same room to acquire a Slap
    Patch that can heal you. Also, get the Scalpel on the counter. When you
    have obtained all these things exit the wooden door to scare the hell
    out of the doctors. Now exit the other wooden door to a hallway. There
    is nothing here but a locked door so exit the morgue.
    
    Location: Streets
    Items: Beretta Pistol, and Leather Jacket
    Enemies: Ork
    
    You will find this guy outside who gives you advice to pack a firearm.
    Also he will tell you that the Hitmen want you DEAD. He will now run
    off into an alley. Follow him. He will no get "whacked" by an Ork.
    Hurry up and grab his Beretta Pistol before the Ork takes any HP off
    you. Press Start to bring up the menu screen. Equip the Beretta Pistol
    and get behind a dumpster. You should now have clear shots of him while
    the dumpster is protecting you. It is likely, however, that you will
    sustain some damage. When you kill the Ork, be sure to grab and equip
    his Leather Jacket. Exit the alley and go into the building north of
    it. Inside the second room is a businessman. Ask him all the things you
    know to open up new questions. Now go to the north building.
    
    Location: Grim Reaper Club
    Items: Iced Tea
    Enemies: None
    Shadowrunners: Ork, Jamaican
    
    When you arrive talk to the Club Manager behind the counter. He will
    give you an iced tea. Now give that iced tea to the Club Patron, which
    will put him in a talking mood. He will now talk about tickets. Ask
    about the tickets to learn about Maria and Grinder. Ask about Grinder
    and you will learn about Lonestar. Now that you have this information
    leave. I also suggest that you do not hire Hamfist to Shadowrun with
    you. Now it's time to visit your apartment. Head out of the club and
    retrace your steps back to the Morgue. Go into the gate around the
    Water Fountain. A dog will leave and leave behind a collar so take it.
    Now take the south road and the turn east where there is an apartment
    building and a Monorail Station. Go inside the apartment building.
    
    Location Apartment Building
    Items: Door Key, and Memo
    Enemies: Mage, Heavy Dude
    
    Enter the first door you come across. Inside is a dead man. Examine him
    and take the Door Key and the Memo. In the next room you can fight some
    enemies if you want. The key is the one to your apartment. Leave here
    and go to the Monorail Station. It is closed but there is an ally on
    the left of it. Follow the alley to come across another apartment
    building. Use the Door Key on apartment 6.
    
    Location: Apartment 6
    Items: Shades, Ripped Note, 20 nuyen, and Bed
    Enemies: None
    
    Enter your apartment to find a recorded message from Drake. Apparently
    your name is Jake. Be sure to pick up and wear the shades. Get the
    Ripped Note, and open the filling cabinet to get 20 nuyen. Before you
    leave sleep in the bed and use your karma if you have any. You may also
    want to gain some Nuyen and karma right now. Travel in the building and
    kill the Mages and Heavy Dudes for lots of Nuyen. When you HP runs low
    just go back to the bed and save. When you have about 150 nuyen leave
    and head for the businessman again. Ask him about the Lonestar and he
    will sell you a badge for 150 nuyen. Now head back to the Morgue.
    
    Location: Morgue
    Items: Credstick, and Tickets
    Enemies: None
    
    Attach the Lonestar Badge to your pocket and talk to the mortician. Ask
    him about Grinder and he will ask if you want his belongings. Answer
    yes. Look in both the cabinets to find a credstick and tickets to the
    Maria Mercurial concert! Well, now that you have the tickets, go to the
    concert! It is in the right alley across from the Grim Reaper Club. But
    before you visit the Cage go into the cemetery. Go into the westernmost
    house and open it with the Scalpel. There will be an injured Shaman
    here. Use a Slap Patch on him and he will give you Magic Fetish. Exit
    and continue on course.
    
    Location: The Cage
    Items: None
    Enemies: None
    
    There is a Bouncer (of course) blocking the entrance. He will ask for
    the tickets so give them to him. Talk to all the people to learn about
    Mr. Glutman. Talk to him, he is the shady character on the couch. He
    will hide you because he supposedly owes Jake favor. There will be a
    scene where Jake is walking blindfolded.
    
    Location: Caryards
    Items: Slap Patch (bought from kid), and Bed
    Enemies: None
    
    You're probably going to be here for a while, so make yourself
    comfortable. Talk to people to find out why and where you are. You can
    get out for 4,000 nyuen but that's just out of the question. What
    you're going to have to do is take down the king at the arena. But
    you're going to need some practice first. There is another area in the
    Caryards where you can fight Mages and Heavy Dudes for Karma and some
    extra nuyen. But before you fight any combatants, have 50 HP and skill
    level 3 Firearm to make the battles easier. Here is an in depth
    explanation of the arena's combatants.
                                Arena Battle
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Fighter#1: Gang Member
    HP: 35
    Weapon: Spiked Club
    Obtain: 3 Karma and 300 nuyen
    Difficulty: Easy
    Strategy: This guy is extremely easy. Run and wait for him to swing.
    Dodge the swing and shoot him. You can also fight him toe to toe if you
    want.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Fighter#2: Heavy Dude
    HP: 16
    Weapon: Air Gun
    Obtain: 1 Karma and 700 nuyen
    Difficulty: Easy
    Strategy: Ha, this guy is easier then the first dude. Just stand in one
    place and shoot him dead. Good nuyen for an easy enemy. Use the Karma
    from this fight and the previous one to increase Body Strength.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Fighter#3: Heavy Dude
    HP: 24
    Weapon: Air Gun
    Obtain: 2 Karma and 1,000 nuyen
    Difficulty: Easy
    Strategy: Just as easy as the second fighter but with better rewards.
    His HP is a little more then the previous fighter but nothing to worry
    about. You should be ashamed if he takes 5 HP off you at most. Use the
    Karma from this fight and the previous one to increase strength.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Fighter#4: Mage
    HP: 40
    Weapon: Pistol
    Obtain: 2 Karma and 2,000 nuyen
    Difficulty: Easy
    Strategy: This one is the "hardest" you've faced yet but still not to
    hard. Take a few shots, run, and take a few more shots. Repeat this
    until this chummer is dead.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Fighter#5: Mage
    HP: 38
    Weapon: Pistol
    Obtain: 1 Karma and 3,000 nuyen
    Difficulty: Intermediate
    Strategy: This guy has a nice amount of strength but then again, so do
    you. Shoot him as fast and as hard as you can. He would be harder if he
    actually shot at you more.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Fighter#6: Samurai Warrior
    HP: 45
    Weapon: Machine Gun
    Obtain: 1 Karma and 4,000 nuyen
    Difficulty: Hard
    Strategy: Damn this guy is hard! He packs quite a punch with that
    Machine Gun. There is only one foolproof way to beat him. He will tear
    you apart with that Machine Gun so move up close to him and unload you
    Berretta. When he tries to run, run with him.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Fighter#7: Ferocious Orc
    HP: 40
    Weapon: Shotgun
    Obtain: 3 Karma and 5,000 nuyen
    Difficulty: Hard
    Strategy: Ok, I have another chicken strategy here, but hey, all you're
    here for is the Karma and nuyen. When the battle starts immediately run
    behind the barrel on fire on the easternmost part of the arena. The Ork
    will not follow you. From here you can just blast away at him while he
    has his head in the clouds. Use the Karma in this fight and the
    previous one to increase your Firearm skill.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Fighter#8: King
    HP: 38
    Weapon: Shotgun
    Obtain: 4 Karma and 3,000 nuyen.
    Difficulty: Hard
    Strategy: Ok, so this isn't really the eight fighter but with the
    coming fights you're going to have to upgrade you're equipment which
    means leaving this place. To fight the King, ask the Arena Manager and
    he will hook you up with the fight. The King won't be too bad if you
    can fire off shots faster then him.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Good, now that you beat him you can leave the Caryards! Ignore the
    places to your right and just follow the road. There should be two
    shops at the end of the road.
    
    Location: Firearm/Armor Shop
    Items: None
    Enemies: None
    
    Great, this place sells a variety of great weaponry and armory. By now
    you should have about 20,000 nuyen. Here's a list of all of them and
    what each does.
                                  Weapon Shop
    =======================================================================
    |Weapon: Colt American L36' Pistol
    |Cost: 500 nuyen
    |Grade: C
    |Description: I don't recommend buying this gun. If you are low on
    |nuyen and this is all you can afford, go for it.
    =======================================================================
    
    =======================================================================
    |Weapon: Fichetti
    |Cost: 2,000 nuyen
    |Grade: C
    |Description: Ok gun. You should not buy this because it is a waste of
    |nuyen though.
    =======================================================================
    
    =======================================================================
    |Weapon: 'Aries Viper' Long Range Pistol
    |Cost: 4,000 nuyen
    |Grade: B+
    |Description: This is a good pistol that is about twice as good as the
    |old Beretta. You can buy it if you want, but if you have the nuyen,
    |get the War Hawk.
    =======================================================================
    
    =======================================================================
    |Weapon: 'Ruger Warhawk' Heavy Pistol
    |Cost: 9,000 nuyen
    |Grade: A
    |Description: Now we're talking! This is the best pistol that you're
    |going to get at this point in the game. If you have this much nuyen
    |(that you should) buy the shotgun instead.
    =======================================================================
    
    =======================================================================
    |Weapon: 'Defiance T-250' Shotgun
    |Cost: 15,000 nuyen
    |Grade A-
    |Description: The best weapon you can get in the game so far. You
    |should have enough money to purchase it with 5,000 nuyen left.
    =======================================================================
    
    =======================================================================
    |Weapon: 'Burlitzers Finest' Grenade
    |Cost: 100 nuyen
    |Grade: A
    |Description: These things are sweet; if you have any money left buy a
    |couple.
    =======================================================================
    
    =======================================================================
    |Armor: Mesh Wire Jacket
    |Cost: 5,000 nuyen
    |Grade: B-
    |Description: This should be one of the things you buy here. That
    |Leather Jacket is becoming old and worn.
    =======================================================================
    
    Now that you have this newfound equipment go back to the arena and
    battle the remaining combatants for some major nuyen. Now come back and
    visit the doctor in the alley on you're back.
    
    Location: Ed's Patch n Fix
    Items: None
    Enemies: None
    
    When you walk in Jake will be greeted by a Street Doc. Talk to him
    about Datajack to learn about examination. Ask him about examination
    and he'll give you one for 500 nuyen. Give him the money and let him
    "fix you up." It seems Jake has a Cortex Bomb in his head. There is
    only 30 hours so hurry to the station and hop on the one to Daily
    Station.
    
    Location: Daily Station
    Items: Iron Key
    Enemies: 2 Ferocious Orks
    
    Get off the Monorail and you will be confronted by 2 Ferocious Orks.
    They are no problem with you're handy shotgun. When you kill them they
    will mention something about Rust Stilettos. Pick up the nuyen and Iron
    Key. Go to the south of the station and cross the road. Just watch out
    for the cars zooming by. Keep going south on the sidewalk and enter the
    first building you see. Talk to the secretary and mention the Cortex
    Bomb. You have to give her 2,000 nuyen and she will let you through.
    Mention the Cortex to the doctor and he'll fix Jake up. You'll learn,
    Head Computers, Matrix Systems, and Cyberware. Now, you need to go to
    Glutman's place. Go to the Tenth Street Station and exit. He lives
    across the alley where you got the Beretta in the second room. Pick up
    the Cyberdeck on his desk and use it on the computer. Welcome to the
    Matrix. Here's the solution: move right, up, up, right, right, up,
    right, right, down, right, down, receive data, down, down, right,
    receive data. Now it's time to leave. Now you should get Glutman's
    account and 1,000 nuyen. Next stop is the Wastelands. It is in the
    alley north of the Daily Station.
    
    Location: Wastelands
    Items: None
    Enemies: None
    Shadowrunners: Ork, Mercenary, Decker, Dwarf
    
    When you walk in a Ork will be waiting for. Kill him and go down the
    stairs. You're mission in here is to hire a Shadowrunner. I suggest
    Anders who is the guy with the shades at the bar. He only charges 1,000
    nuyen, but he is one of the best you can get. When you're done here
    leave and take the path to the right of Jake and the new shadowrunner.
    
    Location: Rust Stilettos
    Items: Crowbar, and Password
    Enemies: 6 Heavy Dude, 4 Gang Member, 2 Ferocious Ork, Gang Leader
    
    You will be warned by s punk to leave. Ignore him and blow him and his
    cronies away which should be easy with you're shadowrunner. When you
    blow through this mess go inside the building using the Iron Key. It
    should be easy killing the enemies in here. Just shoot at what the
    shadowrunner shoots at to make this go easier. Don't forget to grab the
    Crowbar. Go through the door. The enemies in here are tough so watch
    out. Get the Password from the Gang Leader's corpse and leave. Go to
    the hotel, which left, down, down, and left from here. There should be
    a hotel and a line of people. Talk to the two dudes in blue and pay
    them 50 nuyen to enter the Jagged Nails.
    
    Location: Jagged Nails
    Items: None
    Enemies: None
    Shadowrunners: Decker, Mage, Kitsune
    
    Walk in and talk to all the people. Talk to the women on the top level.
    Ask her about Dog and she will give you enchanted leaves. Also hire her
    because Katsune will NEVER leave you. Now exit Jagged Nails. You're
    next stop is the docks which are south and left of here.
    
    Location: Docks
    Items: None
    Enemies: Massive Orc, Hitman
    
    Take care of the enemies here. There should be a door in this screen so
    enter it. Kill the enemies here and head to the computer. Use the
    Cyberdeck and tap into the Matrix. Here is the solution for this one:
    Right, up, up, left, left, up, left, left, down, left, left, receive
    data, right, down, down, down, left, receive data. Now it's time to
    leave. Obtain the Matrix account and 2,000 nuyen. Go into the next
    screen and enter the door. The Dog Spirit will give you the Heal spell
    plus send you on a mission to destroy the Rat Shaman. Before you go,
    visit The Wastelands and hire Anders as you're Shadowrunner. To enter,
    go to the market and down one of the passages.
    
    Location: Rat Sewer
    Items: None
    Enemies: Giant Rats, Rat Shaman
    
    Kill all the rats you can see. Go north two screens and the east. The
    Rat Shaman will be there with about 5 Giant Rats. He will occasionally
    freeze you but it's no problem. Just keep attacking. When he's dead the
    Rat Spirit or something will tell you about Jester Spirits. Go back to
    the Dog Spirit now. He will tell you some things but no new words. Go
    back to Jagged Nails.
    
    Location: Jagged Nails
    Items: None
    Enemies: None
    Shadowrunners: Decker, Mage, Kitsune
    
    Alright, you are going to learn allot of info here. First, talk to
    Kitsune and ask about Jester Spirits, you will learn about Dark Blade.
    Ask Kitsune about Dark Blade and you will learn Vampire. Next, ask the
    Club Manager (north) about Vampires to learn Strobes. Now, talk to the
    Club Manager (south) about Strobes and he will give them to you. Last,
    use the Video Phone to talk to the Talisman. Ask him about Dark Blade
    and he will give you his number. Call the Dark Blade and ask about
    Magic Fetish. Also, if you do not have a Wooden Stake go to the
    Talismans shop to purchase one. Their lair is located south of the
    market.
    
    Location: Dark Blades
    Items: Bronze Key, and Mesh Jacket
    Enemies: Samurai Warriors, Mage, Cruel Men, Ghouls
    
    Enter and talk to the Mage. Tell him about the Magic Fetish and he will
    let you through. Vladmir is in the reading room which is first room to
    you're left. Go in and talk to him and give him the Magic Fetish. Ask
    him about Jester Spirits and you'll learn Nirwanda and Bremington. Now
    get into the other computer and obtain the three data caches. Vladmir,
    on the other hand, escapes through the wall. Go into the right room now
    and kill all the people. Pick up the Bronze Key from a bookcase. Also
    one of the dead Samurai Warriors is a Mesh Jacket. Now, go into the
    north room and take a left. Kill all the people in here and open the
    Bronze Gate. Watch out, there are lots of Ghouls down here. Go into
    Vladmir's room and se the strobes. You can now stake him. Ask him about
    Jester Sprits to learn the real name, Laughlyn. I recommend you kill
    him to get 5,000 nuyen and 5 Karma. Leave the Dark Blades. Now, go to
    the Wastelands. There should be a dude in the corner watching the band.
    Ask him about Ice. He'll then ask where you want it delivered. Answer
    him with the Docks. Give him the money and head down to the Docks
    again. Talk to the Boat Driver and ask about Bremington. Pay, 100 nuyen
    and he'll take you there.
    
    Location: Bremington
    Items: Dog Tag, Safe Key, Detonator, Broken Bottle, and Green Bottle
    Enemies: Mages, Heavy Dudes, Gang Members, Gang Leaders, Massive Orcs
    
    All the doors are rusted shut except for one, which happens to be the
    furthest away. Blast you're way through the enemies until you come
    across a dog. Kill the dog and take the Dog Tag. Use the Crowbar on the
    last door. Kill the Poison Ooze and hit the switch, which will open the
    door. Follow the maze until you come across a fleet of stairs. Go up
    them and continue on the path. Kill the Massive Orcs you come across
    until you reach a room with a Ferocious Orc. Kill him and take the Safe
    Key. Open the safe to get the Detonator and Broken Bottle and go back
    to where you went up the fleet of stairs. Take the other path now. Go
    through the door south of Jake when you enter. There should be Poison
    Ooze in here. Kill it and fill the Toxic Water with you're Potion
    Bottle. Now go through the door closest to the Toxic Water. Kill all
    the enemies in the passageways. Use the Time Bomb on the safe to get
    the Green Bottle. Now, head to the electronic locked door. Hit the
    switch that is located north of the door to release it. There are lots
    of mines in here so be careful. Enter the portal and kill the pathetic
    Naga. Watch out for the bubbles and proceed through the path. You will
    meet up with the Jester Spirit. Shoot him until he says something.
    Mention Laughlyn and ask Drake you will learn Volcano. Time to go to
    the big Drake building. Make sure to hire Frogtongue and Steelfleet. Do
    NOT hire Spatter because he will turn on you.
    
    Location: Drake Building
    Items: None
    Enemies: Mages, Samurai Warriors
    
    When you enter use the computer to access the elevators. Now on the
    second floor the Samurai Warriors will be talking a lot of smack but
    you can mow them down with you're shadowrunners. Use the computers to
    access the third floor plus Drakes account and 8,000 nuyen. Once again
    on the third floor mow down the Mage and Samurai Warriors. Get the
    elevator working again. Kill all the Samurai Warriors and get the data
    file and activate the elevator. This should be the fifth floor. Kill
    all enemies and debug the node and activate the elevator. Kill all
    enemies and activate the elevator again. Now, destroy the two Sentry
    guns and talk to the helicopter pilot. Tell him you want to go to
    Volcano and he'll take you.
    
    Location: Drake Volcano
    Items: None
    Enemies: Troll Deckers,
    
    Get off the chopper and enter. Take the elevator to Sub Level 1. In
    here you need to activate the elevator to Sub Level 2. The computer
    you're looking for is GDC. Take the elevator to SL 3. Here, you're
    looking for the computer DGC. Now go to sub level 3. Beware there is a
    Sentry gun guarding the entry. On this level there are many Drake
    accounts. They are not needed but you can take them if you're low on
    nuyen. Activate the Sub Level 4 elevator and enter it. Welcome to hell.
    This place is damn near impossible to beat. Run past the Sentry guns
    and enter the door. Kill the three Troll Deckers and enter the door.
    Kill the scientists trying to kill you and enter the door. To defeat
    this beast use the Jester Spirit. Use Invisibility to make the fight
    easier. When you take 50 HP off him or so Drake will be dead. Now enter
    the only other door in the room. Talk to the scientist. Ask him about
    Drake to learn Aneki and mention Head Computer. Now quit talking to him
    and you will be back at Drake Towers. You need to head to Aneki
    Buildings which is across the street from the Daily Station. Note: You
    now have access to the Assault Rifle and Full Body Suit at the Dark
    Blade Weapon Shop. I HIGHLY recommend buying them.
    
    Location: Aneki
    Items: None
    Enemies: Samurai Warriors, Mages
    
    When you arrive there will be a dude asking for a pass. You can kill
    him or avoid him altogether by casting Invisibility. Use the computer
    to activate the elevator. Go into the right screen here. Activate the
    elevator to enter the third floor. Do the same here to be transferred
    to the last floor of the game. Congratulations! You beat Shadowrun.
    Jake will board a helicopter with Kitsume (if you have her) and that
    will be the end.
