    Yet another guide for an entirely new FAQ writing experience for me, Silent
    Hill has always been in my game collection. Back in the year (late 90's), I
    was enjoying the first installment, and look how far Konami has traveled now.
    This is the fourth in the series. Silent Hill 4: The Room, has all the new
    features you would not want to miss. Reading reviews is another thing,
    playing and enjoying (getting freaked out) the game is another story. This is
    the first ever FAQ I'm writing for the Silent Hill series, and since they're
    a few good complete walkthroughs for the game already, I chose to write a
    short, brief Weapons FAQ for this game. I love this game. I got it
    immediately when the game was released in my area.
    
    None of my friends ever play this game. Makes you wonder why. The only reason
    is that they personally don't like horror games. Right now, I cannot find any
    reason to resist a horror experience this good. Resident Evil is good, but
    Silent Hill has always been the best one for me. Also, please don't confuse
    Survival Horror and Horror. Well, they're basically the same, but for all we
    know Silent Hill enemies aren't zombies. They're monsters, ghosts, etc.
    
    This time around, you get control of a male character yet again (we've seen
    Harry Mason, James Sunderland, Heather Mason, and now...), Henry Townshend.
    He is quite a little shy guy I might add. His perspective of life and the
    outside world is really interesting, but has the colors of its own. I don't
    need to explain too much; by the time you start a new game for five minutes,
    you'll get what I'll be saying later. I suggest you concentrate on the
    storyline and enjoy the game. It is very much different from others in the
    series.
    
    Now, this guide will give you a short, brief explanation on the weapons in
    the game, from A to Z. More will be explained when we get to the main
    section. For now, take your time and browse though the FAQ. Remember this FAQ
    is mainly about the weapons, so if you're looking for item locations, enemy
    lists and so on, you might want to check the Silent Hill 4: The Room main FAQ
    page.

    This is the main section. It includes the weapons used by Henry & Eileen, for
    now. The locations will also be displayed, and if you need to actually get
    it, I'll state exactly how, but of course, I won't give you the complete
    walkthrough. The weapons are listed in alphabetical order (numbers begin
    first, followed by letters), and the description is based on the game when
    you press the select button to view it. Let's begin.

    [ 3-Iron ]
    
    Location: Building World 2nd Time, held by a Gum Head in the Gum Head Arena.
    
    Description: 'Golf club. Powerful and easy to use, but it looks like it could
    break easily'.
    
    This is, as you might or might not know is one of the 12 golf clubs you can
    find and use as a weapon in the game. They all work and act as the same, and
    when they're used frequently, they'll eventually break and become useless
    weapons. This means that if you keep on using them and bashing enemies with
    them, later on, they'll break and you cannot use them any longer. Their
    attacks are much stronger than that of a steel pipe (which you find at the
    start of the game), but overall, they're quite useless. Make sure you keep
    them inside the storage box whenever they're broken (they'll take your
    inventory space). Some of them are equipped by enemies. You will notice the
    change of the item in your inventory (they'll be a little bent) whenever they
    cannot be used anymore.
    
    
    [[(( Info on Gum Heads ))]]
    
    Gun Heads are available in two deformed types. There's a normal Gum Head and
    there's a Mutated, or a new type. The normal Gun Head usually appears more
    often in the Building World. They are deformed monkeys which can really get
    on your nerves. They carry Golf Clubs in some areas and will use it without a
    doubt. They can steal weapons from you, but you can of course get them back
    by killing them. They make a monkey-like noise whenever they're present. The
    new-type tends to be more aggressive than the old-type. Most of the Golf
    Clubs can be found with them; because they use these weapons. You can easily
    kill them by stomping on them (knock them down first), and then you can grab
    the weapon they use. Quite simple. Also, be careful when there are a number
    of them in an area. They can easily bash you and you can not make a move.
    
    
    [ 3-Wood ]
    
    Location: Building World 2nd Time, in Albert's Sports Store on the floor
    (B5).
    
    Description: 'Golf club. Powerful and easy to use, but it looks like it could
    break easily'.
    
    This is, as you might or might not know is one of the 12 golf clubs you can

    [ 4-Iron ]
    
    Location: Hospital World, 2nd Floor on the ground (in one of the rooms).
    
    Description: 'Golf club. Powerful and easy to use, but it looks like it could
    break easily'.
    
    This is, as you might or might not know is one of the 12 golf clubs you can

    [ 5-Iron ]
    
    Location: Building World, in Albert's Sports Store (B5).

    [ 6-Iron ]
    
    Location: Forest World, Southeastern Dead End, lying on the ground.
    
    Description: 'Golf club. Powerful and easy to use, but it looks like it could
    break easily'.
    
    This is, as you might or might not know is one of the 12 golf clubs you can

    [ 7-Iron ]
    
    Location: Building World 2nd Time, held by a Gum Head in the Gum Head Arena.
    
    Description: 'Golf club. Powerful and easy to use, but it looks like it could

    [ 8-Iron ]
    
    Location: Building World 2nd Time, held by a Gum Head in the Gum Head Arena.
    
    Description: 'Golf club. Powerful and easy to use, but it looks like it could
    break easily'.
    
    This is, as you might or might not know is one of the 12 golf clubs you can

    [ 9-Iron ]
    
    Location: Subway World, situated on the subway car in King Street Line (B4).
    
    Description: 'Golf club. Powerful and easy to use, but it looks like it could
    break easily'.
    
    This is, as you might or might not know is one of the 12 golf clubs you can
    find and use as a weapon in the game. They all work and act as the same, and
    when they're used frequently, they'll eventually break and become useless

    inventory space). Some of them are equipped by enemies. You will notice the
    change of the item in your inventory (they'll be a little bent) whenever they
    cannot be used anymore.
    
    
    [ Aluminum Bat ]
    
    Location: Building World, in Albert's Sports Store (B5).
    
    Description: 'Aluminum alloy bat. Reasonably powerful and easy to use a as a
    weapon'.
    
    One of my favorite weapons, the Aluminum Bat has attacks similar to the Steel
    Pipe & Golf Clubs, and it is almost as powerful as the Golf Clubs. The
    advantage of the Aluminum Bat is that it will not break like the Golf Clubs.
    You can use it for as long as you want. Since it's a little heavy for Henry
    to manage, Henry tends to be slower with it when he attacks but it causes
    good damage to the enemies. I'd recommend you using it after you're done with
    the Steel Pipe, but don't hesitate to switch weapons when you get a good one
    like the Rusty Axe. The Aluminum Bat has a combo attack too.
    
    
    [ Broken Wine Bottle ]
    
    Location: Not available (use the wine bottle until it breaks).
    
    Description: 'Bottle of white wine from the refrigerator. Now that
    it's broken, it's even more dangerous as a weapon'.
    
    Not a good weapon against most of the enemies. It is a little bit better than
    the wine bottle before it was broken, but still though, it does not have a
    combo attack. You cannot charge your attack as well. I would say that you
    keep using the Steel Pipe for the quarter of the game until you find the
    Aluminum Bat or any of the Golf Clubs (though they break eventually). The
    Broken Wine Bottle has a stabbing attack, but Henry has to be in a close-
    combat range, which is dangerous and difficult. Forget about using it if you
    prefer not to.
    
    
    [ Bug Spray ]
    
    Location: Apartment World, lying on the ground in Room 203 (in the main
    room).
    
    Description: 'Aerosol insecticide. Effective against certain enemies'.
    
    The Bug Spray is effective against the Hummers. Aiming at a group of them
    would knock them down and then you can stomp on them (circle button). Hummers
    are annoying creatures. So if you're too lazy to stay in a spot, swing your
    weapon around or take out a gun and waste your bullets, you'd want to keep
    the Bug Spray and kill them with it easier. Other than this, the Bug Spray is
    indeed, useless.
    
    
    [[(( Info on Hummers ))]]
    
    Hummers are bat like creatures that fly around in certain levels in the game.
    Usually they appear in groups or numbers. They are weak and will drop down
    (still alive) on the ground, and if you take too long to stomp on them,
    they'll wake up and start to attack you again. The Bug Spray is an effective
    weapon to use on them. Other weapons would work, including the firearms but
    that would be a waste now wouldn't it? It doesn't matter what you use against
    them; whether the Steel Pipe, the Rusty Axe, The Aluminum Bat, or even the
    Spade, you have to stomp on them fast before they wake back up. You can
    choose to hit them when they're lying on the ground, but that would consume
    your time.
    
    
    [ Chainsaw ]
    
    Location: Forest World, at the area with the car stuck to a tree.
              Note: Available ONLY is a Brand New Fear game.
    
    Description: 'Originally made for cutting wood. As a weapon, it's a fearsome
    thing'.
    
    The Chainsaw of course reminds me of Evil Dead. Even there though, it sucked.
    Here, I cannot quite describe since it depends on how you manage it. It's
    heavy, and heavy weapons causes Henry to react slowly. This is the case when
    using the Chainsaw. Speed. If you really like it, you'd be upset with the
    charging attack. First of all, it is not very powerful like it is designed to
    look like. It looks good, but the attack and damage it causes is not really
    impressive. In fact, some other weapon's charge attacks are much better and
    faster. It is a satisfaction getting it, and suing it for yourself, but
    equipping it together with you along the game? I'm afraid not. The only thing
    is that while having the Chainsaw equipped you'll get a nice stomp animation.
    It's a little different than other weapons available.
    
    
    [[(( Info on Brand New Fear Game & Unlocking the Chainsaw ))]]
    
    A Brand New Fear game is unlocked when you beat the game once with any
    difficulty, and start a new game with the save file marked 'Brand New Fear'.
    The text is usually highlighted with a yellow color (this can change
    depending on what type of game completion you acquired).
    
    The Chainsaw however, is another hidden weapon. It does not require a huge
    task like the Submachine Gun. You only need to complete the game once on any
    difficulty level, and you will find it on your next play through (replaying
    the game on the same save file - Brand New Fear Game). You can find it in the
    area where Jasper Gein's car is at, stuck to a tree, in Forest World First
    Time. Not tough isn't it? The Chainsaw has an idle animation to it when you
    let Henry stand with it, with the Chainsaw equipped of course.
    
    
    [ Driver ]
    
    Location: Building World 2nd Time, beside the hole, Entrance Alleyway (B1).
    
    Description: 'Golf club. Powerful and easy to use, but it looks like it could
    break easily'.
    
    This is, as you might or might not know is one of the 12 golf clubs you can
    find and use as a weapon in the game. They all work and act as the same, and
    when they're used frequently, they'll eventually break and become useless
    weapons. This means that if you keep on using them and bashing enemies with
    them, later on, they'll break and you cannot use them any longer. Their
    attacks are much stronger than that of a steel pipe (which you find at the
    start of the game), but overall, they're quite useless. Make sure you keep
    them inside the storage box whenever they're broken (they'll take your
    inventory space). Some of them are equipped by enemies. You will notice the
    change of the item in your inventory (they'll be a little bent) whenever they
    cannot be used anymore.
    
    
    [ Paper-Cutting Knife ]
    
    Location: Hospital World, 1st Floor Office on the desk in one of the rooms.
    
    Description: 'Originally made for cutting paper. It's hard to use as a
    weapon'.
    
    Why use a weapon so difficult and dangerous (which has a short range attack)
    when you already have better weapons this far? The Paper-Cutting Knife is
    horrible, and could be worst. The Wine Bottle could probably be leveled
    together with this one. However, it has a three combo attack, and a fast
    charge attack, which has nothing special to it. Since you don't need it, if
    you've taken it, keep it in the storage box. It is just plain useless, and
    not powerful.
    
    
    [ Pickaxe of Despair ]
    
    Location: Forest World 2nd Time, at the Coal Mine.
    
    Description: 'Ordinary pickaxe from a construction site. "Despair" is written
    on the handle. Very powerful'.
    
    The most powerful weapon in the game. The Pickaxe of Despair is very slow
    with its attacks, not to mention the charge attack as well. However, you
    should probably just take it with you, since it could be handy at times where
    you need to bash monsters head open. :D
    
    
    [ Pistol ]
    
    Location: Room 302, situated behind the cabinet which can only be moved after
    returning from Subway World for the first time. It's lying on the floor.
    
    Description: 'Easy-to-use handgun, but not much stopping power'.
    
    This is your first firearm in the game. Majority of weapons in the game are
    not firearms, and you'll find it difficult to carry bullets in your
    inventory. You don't have much space, you can't afford going back into the
    hole over and over again to the inventory box, and you're run out of ammo
    eventually. I would suggest that you be careful all times with the amount of
    bullets you carry, and try to bring at least one melee weapon (Steel Pipe,
    Rusty Axe, Aluminum Bat, etc) so that you can kill any normal enemies like
    the hummers and toadstools/whitestools without wasting your bullets.
    
    The Pistol is accurate at most times. It can be used with the Pistol Bullets
    and also the Silver Bullets. One of the advantages is that it fires fairly
    fast, and it would be useful for those annoying monsters. You have a very
    limited amount of Pistol Bullets to carry, but that depends on the
    difficulty.
    
    
    [[(( Info On Pistol Magazines ))]]
    
    Depending on the difficulty of the game, you can carry different amount of
    Pistol Magazines, which the more, the better since you can bring more with
    you. Here's the list:
    
    Easy Difficulty - 12 Rounds of Pistol Magazines.
    Normal Difficulty - 10 Rounds of Pistol Magazines.
    Hard Difficulty - 8 Rounds of Pistol Magazines.

    [ Pitching Wedge ]
    
    Location: Building World, Water Tower, Exterior Area (B12), held by an
    evolved Gum Head.
    
    Description: 'Golf club. Powerful and easy to use, but it looks like it could
    break easily'.
    
    This is, as you might or might not know is one of the 12 golf clubs you can
    find and use as a weapon in the game. They all work and act as the same, and
    when they're used frequently, they'll eventually break and become useless
    weapons. This means that if you keep on using them and bashing enemies with
    them, later on, they'll break and you cannot use them any longer. Their
    attacks are much stronger than that of a steel pipe (which you find at the
    start of the game), but overall, they're quite useless. Make sure you keep
    them inside the storage box whenever they're broken (they'll take your
    inventory space). Some of them are equipped by enemies. You will notice the
    change of the item in your inventory (they'll be a little bent) whenever they
    cannot be used anymore.
    
    
    [ Putter ]
    
    Location: Apartment World, in the bedroom, Room 207, 2nd Floor.
    
    Description: 'Golf club. Powerful and easy to use, but it looks like it could
    break easily'.

    [ Richard's Revolver ]
    
    Location: Apartment World, on a chair, main room area, Room 207, 2nd Floor.
    
    Description: 'Holds a maximum of six bullets. Easy to use, with moderate
    stopping power'.
    
    Overall the revolver is a little better, in terms of the damage it cause, and
    the power of it. It uses the Revolver Bullets. The only disadvantage is that
    it can only hold a maximum of six bullets, which is a difficulty. You could
    easily run out of ammo. Besides, finding the ammo is also another difficulty.
    The amount of Revolver Bullets in this game is very limited, but the power is
    a little bit better than the Pistol Bullets. Perhaps a little bit powerful.
    It can knock down normal enemies with one shot sometimes, so it would be
    useful.
    
    
    [ Revolver Bullets ]
    
    Locations:
    
    - Hospital World, the room with the wheel chair, on a desk, behind the chair,
    2nd Floor.
    - Forest World 2nd Time, Toluka Lake area, on the ground.
    - Building World 2nd Time, at the very end of the Interior Hallway (B8),
    where the Spade was on the first visit.
    - Building World 2ns Time, on the roof of a car, top of the Hotel South
    Ashfeild (B1, B2, B3).
    - Outside Room 302, on a coffee table, Room 303, on 3rd Floor.
    
    Description: 'Large-diameter bullets for use in "Richard's Revolver."
    Reasonably powerful'.
    
    The bullet which can only be loaded into Richard's Revolver. It comes in six,
    from each pickup regardless the difficulty.
    
    
    [ Rusty Axe ]
    
    Location: Building World, on the bar table, Bar Southfield (B15).
    
    Description: 'One-handed axe. A little short, but powerful and easy
    to handle'.
    
    My favorite weapon, which I use the most on my first play through. It has a
    short range attack, as the description said. Its charge attack is wonderful
    seeing how you'll be invulnerable to attacks for a short while when Henry
    swings the axe to the front. It has a single hit swing, which is fairly fast,
    but not quite, but the charge attack really send enemies to the ground, but
    maybe not for long, especially with the Gum Head new-type. Overall it's
    really useful when you're ready to let go of the Steel Pipe, or the Aluminum
    Bat, perhaps even use it until the end of the game after acquiring it. This
    has been the most useful weapon when it comes to battling enemies which
    aren't annoying, but you might want a weapon which is a little fast when
    dealing with enemies which are quick on their feet.
    
    
    [ Sand Wedge ]
    
    Location: Building World 2nd Time, held by a Gum Head in the Gum Head Arena
    (B10).
    
    Description: 'Golf club. Powerful and easy to use, but it looks like it could
    break easily'.
    
    This is, as you might or might not know is one of the 12 golf clubs you can
    find and use as a weapon in the game. They all work and act as the same, and
    when they're used frequently, they'll eventually break and become useless
    weapons. This means that if you keep on using them and bashing enemies with
    them, later on, they'll break and you cannot use them any longer. Their
    attacks are much stronger than that of a steel pipe (which you find at the
    start of the game), but overall, they're quite useless. Make sure you keep
    them inside the storage box whenever they're broken (they'll take your
    inventory space). Some of them are equipped by enemies. You will notice the
    change of the item in your inventory (they'll be a little bent) whenever they
    cannot be used anymore.
    
    
    [ Silver Bullets ]
    
    Locations:
    
    - Subway World 2nd Time, southeast stairs, King Street Side Entryway.
    - Forest World 2nd Time, area with the weird tree.
    
    Description: 'Special bullets effective against ghosts. Small diameter. Best
    used with "Pistol"'.
    
    The best bullets for knocking down immortal enemies (ghosts). There is no
    Shotgun ammo this time, but Silver Bullets are rare bullets, and they're good
    enough. It can be used with the Pistol and effective against the ghosts so
    that you can knock them down with only one shot and then you can easily pin
    them in place using the Sword of Obedience. The Silver Bullet has the same
    power as an ordinary bullet against non-ghost enemies, so it will be a waste
    to use against them. Use these when you really need to, against ghosts
    enemies of course.
    
    For each pickup, there's a total of one bullet, even on Easy difficulty.
    They're all the same, so make sure you DON'T waste the ammo. Keep it in the
    box and bring the bullets with you when necessary.
    
    
    [[(( Info on Ghosts ))]]
    
    Ghosts are enemies which cannot be killed with weapons. They float on air and
    will cause a dizzy atmosphere for Henry whenever they're present closely to
    him (and soon will drain his life bar). It doesn't matter what weapons are
    used against them; melee, even firearms, they cannot die. The best thing to
    do is to avoid them temporary (because they usually lurk around the same
    area, or hunt you in other areas), or knock them down, and stuck them in
    place if you have the Sword of Obedience. You can knock one easily using the
    Pistol loaded with a Silver Bullet. This way, you can pin them easier, and I
    believe, faster.
    
    
    [ Spade ]
    
    Location: Building World, at the very end of the Interior Hallway B (B8).
    
    Description: 'Ordinary spade from a construction site. It looks like it would
    be an impressive weapon'.
    
    It is quite an impressive weapon after all. The Spade has a powerful attack,
    probably a little bit better than the Rusty Axe, but much slower on normal
    hits. Its charge attack is quite fast, with moderate power and it's possible
    for it to hit multiple enemies in one, charged attack. While having this
    equipped, you'll have a different stomp move. This can replace the Aluminum
    Bat or the Rusty Axe anytime, but I still do prefer the Rusty Axe for some
    reasons of my own.
    
    
    [ Steel Pipe ]
    
    Location: Room 302, stuck at the hole in bathroom, at beginning of game, upon
    entering.
    
    Description: '3-foot-long sewer pipe. Not very powerful, but fairly easy
    to use'.
    
    The first best weapon you get. Not the best as you think it would be, but you
    have no choice but to use this, or one of the Golf Clubs when you finally get
    it. It's wise to use this, since it has a three combo hit attack, which Henry
    swings around. It has a charge attack as well, which is fast compared to
    other heavier weapons, and the best thing is that, it won't break like the
    Golf Clubs. Keep this in your inventory until you find the Aluminum Bat or
    something better.
    
    
    [ Stun Gun ]
    
    Location: Water Prison World. It's hidden, though there aren't any special
    requirements getting it. It is, inside a locked room on the second floor with
    a hole in it. Getting it requires some work. Get to the control room. All you
    have to do is align the room on the third floor (using the valve) with the
    hole, together with the room on the second floor with the hole on a straight
    line. Then, you must make your way to the third floor and find the room with
    the hole. Jumping down the hole leads to the locked room with the Stun Gun on
    the desk in the room. You can obtain the Stun Gun in any difficulty level.
    
    Description: 'High-voltage stun device. Fairly short-ranged, due to its need
    for direct contact'.
    
    A good weapon for the game. It can knock down mortal enemies in one hit. It's
    slow though, so watch out. Use it when the timing is right. It does not have
    a charge attack, but it is useful for the Gum Heads so you can easily stomp
    them after hitting them with the Stun Gun.
    
    
    [ Torch ]
    
    Location: Forest World 2nd Time, area with the brazier, Cemetery.
    
    Description: 'Equip-able item. The tip can be lit on fire to light up dark
    areas. Soak the torch in oil to make it last even longer'.
    
    There's no point of using this as a weapon, since by the time you get to the
    Forest World on the second visit, you have other better weapons to use. You
    however need this for a certain task in the game, so you have to take the
    Torch. As the description says, you can soak the Torch with oil. Simply go to
    the Laundry Room in Room 302, look at the bottle containing the oil on the
    left side of the hole (facing it), and while having it equip, use it. This
    will make the fire of the Torch last longer. The Torch is a clone of the
    Steel Pipe. It has a three combo hit, similar to the Steel Pipe too. However,
    it's short in length, making it quite difficult and risky fighting enemies in
    the future with it.
    
    
    [ Wine Bottle ]
    
    Location: Room 302, kitchen area, inside the refrigerator.
    
    Description: 'Bottle of white wine from the refrigerator. It'll break
    eventually if I keep using it as a weapon'.
    
    Using the Wine Bottle is as the same as using the Paper-Cutting Knife. Simply
    useless, without any real fighting tool characteristic to it. Using it
    frequently will replace it with a new weapon called the Broken Wine Bottle,
    which is of course, simply ore useless.

    B. Eileen's Weapons
    ____-___ - - ____ -
    
    NOTE: Eileen's weapons are controlled by Henry, and you would notice the
    small 'E' on any of the weapon which has 'Eileen-only Weapon' written on the
    screen when you view the description. Use the square button to change
    Eileen's weapon state to 'Equipped' or 'Unequipped'. The weapons are listed
    in order of which appears first.
    
    
    [ Eileen's Bag ]
    
    Location: Hospital World, southern part of the 1st Floor Lobby.
    
    Description: 'Eileen's handbag. Looks like it could cause a little bit of
    damage'.
    
    Eileen's first weapon you can let her use. She would be pretty (well, quite)
    useless with this equipped, but she could protect herself rather than
    standing there getting serious whacking. She would help you and sometimes get
    herself into trouble. Change this immediately whenever you find something
    better for her.
    
    
    [ Riding Crop ]
    
    Location: Subway World 2nd Time, around the wreckage in the area, Passage
    between Lines.
    
    Description: 'Light and easy to use with good reach. It looks like it would
    be very painful'.
    
    This weapon would protect her better than the handbag. She would be a little
    bit more aggressive than she is with the handbag equipped, but this would be
    better for her, but not for long. Try your best to find something better to
    replace this weapon.
    
    
    [ Chain ]
    
    Location: Forest World 2nd Time, at the area where the Wish House was burned,
    at the playground equipment, Northeast of the area.
    
    Description: 'Light and easy to use. One snap could cause a lot of damage'.
    
    Eileen will get more aggressive with this weapon compared to the Riding Crop.
    This is indeed a much better weapon, so toss her previous weapons in the
    Storage Box and equip this for her if you have it. It's good, but of course
    there are better ones later on. The Chain has a better range and slightly a
    bit more powerful. The sounds when the chain hit an enemy would give a good
    feeling that it works well for Eileen.
    
    
    [ Nightstick ]
    
    Location: Water Prison World 2nd Time, Surveillance Room, 3rd Floor.
    
    Description: 'Lead-weighted, leather nightstick. Does not require much force
    to cause damage. Looks extremely painful'.
    
    It's her best melee weapon you can get for her, and it is easy to find. Try
    getting this weapon for her since it is a lot better than the Chain. It has a
    much more power compared to the Chain (probably just slightly more), and it
    is easy for her to manage. It has a moderate length, so it's overall a
    perfect melee weapon for her, unless you have the Submachine Gun.
    
    
    [ Submachine Gun ]
    
    Location: Apartment World, on kitchen counter, Room 102, 1st Floor (appears
    in Brand New Fear Game only).
    
    Description: 'Small-sized, one-handed machine gun. Perfect for Eileen'.
    
    Eileen best weapon overall. This is her only firearm weapon and it is deadly,
    with it having unlimited ammunition! Henry does not have one in the game, but
    you can get this for her. She has a good aim while having this equipped, and
    built in burst fire mode. Once you have this unlocked, you do not have to
    worry about her, nor have you to worry about all of her other weapons. Toss
    them in the Storage Box, and there you go.
    
    
    [[(( Info on Unlocking the Submachine Gun ))]]
    
    The Submachine Gun appears only in a Brand New Fear Game, and you have to
    unlock it. Unlocking it is not an easy task. You have to get a ranking of
    [9 BIG STARS] in a previous game. Then, save the game file into a save slot
    after the ranking screen, and load that save file to be able to get the
    weapon on your next play through. You MUST play through this save file/slot,
    which is a Brand New Fear Game. The weapon DOES NOT appear in 'One Weapon
    Mode'.
    
    When you have reached the Apartment World First Time on the same save file
    (with it being a Brand New Fear game), go to the Room 102, First Floor. The
    weapon is on the kitchen counter. Note that this is the same room where
    there's a cat in the fridge.
    
    Once you obtain this, and saving it later when you complete the game on the
    same save file, you can find it back there no matter what ranking you get
    that time. You just need to unlock this once with a 9 Big Star Ranking.

    A: It's a normal game, just like starting a new game from the main menu, but
    it is a played save file you overwrite when you finish the game once. This
    means that a Brand New Fear Game is a New Game which in a second time
