     Hello, my name is Tomas Martins and I'm writing my first FAQ!
     Despite the fact that both the full FAQs already have an
    Accolades Section, I felt that this needed a dedicated section.
     I'm Portuguese and this will be a challenge for me, after all.
     This will be fine, don't worry! [/talking to himself] :P

       1. What are the Accolades?                           [wata]
     Once you finish Silent Hill: Origins for the first time, you get
    a message with your statistics along the game, such as the time
    you took to finish, the number of enemies killed, etc, etc.
     In the last part of this message you saw some Accolades
    achieved. If you don't know already what's this, Accolades are
    special costumes that you unlock by reaching certain goals
     Some of these costumes may earn you a special weapon. We'll see
    about that later.
     You can access these costumes in the menu.
     So there you have it. You already know what are the Accolades.
    Let's go to the real deal!
      2. The Accolades                                      [accs]
     - Savior
    How to get: Just finish the game once.
    Aspect: It looks like a biker's leathers.
    Game examine: "You intervened in the cult's ceremony and saved
    Weapon earned: Moon Gauntlets
    Notes: Aside from the Codebreaker accolade, this is the easiest
           accolade to get, beacause it doesn't require any special
           action in the game. Just finish it.
     - Fireman
    How to get: Save Alessa from the burning house in under ~70-80s.
    Aspect: A normal firemen's suit, with light-reflection bands in a
            fluorescent yellow.
    Game examine: "You saved Alessa from the fire in record time."
    Weapon earned: Fire Axe
    Notes: This seems to be a very controversial accolade. There is a
    time discrepancy between the people that got this accolade. Some
    got it in around 80s, while some didn't get it in 71s. I can't
    really comment it, beacause I didn't time myself. Just go around
    the house as fast as you can, without crashing into burning
    furniture and don't forget that the timer starts only when you
    pick Alessa up.
     - Explorer
    How to get: Walk or run at least 22.5km during the playthrough.
    Aspect: An Indiana Jones/archeology teacher brown suit, with a
            hat and high socks.
    Game examine: "During your time in Silent Hill you left no corner
                   untouched, travelling a great distance before
                   accoplishing you goal."
    Weapon earned: ---
    Notes: If you go through most areas in the game, even if there
           are only broken doors and especially in the streets, you
           will get this for sure.
           A neat costume if you want to Travis to look more serious.
     - Cartographer
    How to get: Watch the map for less than 25 times.
    Aspect: A bit like the Explorer outfit, this is a suit with a
            white shirt and brown trousers and suspenders. It also
            come with a very shiny pair of shoes.
    Game examine: "You know the streets of Silent Hill like the back
                   of your hand and had no use for maps."
    Weapon earned: ---
    Notes: This is probably the hardest accolade to get. You can get
           it in three ways:
           One - You played the game more than enough to memorize the
           path and now you can just finish the game without any
           Two - You have an idea of the path you need to follow but
           you need to look at the map when you pick it up to light
           your brain.
           Three - The easiest way to get this is to guide yourself
           through the maps avaliable online, even here at GameFAQs.
           There is a fourth way to help you but you need money or a
           friend willing to help you. Just show the map you need on
           a PSP and play on another PSP! Good catch, right?
     - Sprinter
    How to get: Complete the game in under 2 hours.
    Aspect: A jogging red suit, trainers included.
    Game examine: "You reached the end in record time, traeating the
                   game as a sprint, not a marathon."
    Weapon earned: ---
    Notes: This may look harder than it is.
           I was really worried when I was trying this and I had to
           go back to go for a piece that I had forgotten to a
           puzzle in Alchemilla Hospital and Artaud Theater, but I
           was suprised when I finished the game and looked at the
           time: 1h10min. I really recommend sophialeigh's
           FAQ to try this accolade.
           In case you didn't noticed (I didn't either), this
           accolade is the only one that has a bonus. When wearing
           this you get illimited run energy. That means running
           without getting tired, for ever. SUPERVOLT alerted me to
           this, and I'm very grateful for it. Thanks!!
     - Collector
    How to get: Collect more than 300 items in the game.
    Aspect: A green hoodie, beige trousers and shoes and glasses (?)
            Travis in glasses looks so, weird?
    Game examine: "Like a true obsessive, you collected all the items
                   in the game."
    Weapon earned: ---
    Notes: This desciption may fool some of you. You don't have to
           collect all the items, of course.
           Again, this accolade may look harder than it is. If you
           got normally through the game (not in a rush, take your
           time), you get this easily.
           And again, I recommend sophialeigh's FAQ to go for this,
           but it's not really needed.
     - Daredevil
    How to get: Beat the game without saving.
    Aspect: It's a bear costume. Roaaar!
    Game examine: "Like the heroes of legend, you were fearless in
                   the face of great danger and completed the game
                   without ever saving."
    Weapon earned: ---
    Notes: This accolade isn't that hard to get. The game itself
           isn't very long, so you can finish it in about 2-3 hours,
           if you rush. Adding to this, you can even use the PSP's
           suspend function, if you don't want to play the entire
           game in a row. Just pray for the PSP not to freeze or run
           out of battery!
     - Stalker
    How to get: Use the flashlight for less than 3 hours.
    Aspect: A special ops black suit with a comms helmet. Cool!
    Game examine: "You preferred the comfort of the dark, turning
                   your flashlight off to become one with the night."
    Item earned: Night vision goggles
    Notes: This accolade isn't hard at all, since it's much safer to
           go through the game with the flashlight off, at least
           during your first time, to sneak by most enemies.
           The night vision goggles aren't that useful as you might
           think, beacause the screen gets too bright.
     - Brawler
    How to get: Kill more than half of the enemies with your fists.
    Aspect: A Mexican wrestling suit, with a greenish blue mask,
            torso and boots, and blue pants. Vámonos!
    Game examine: "Like a true survivor you fought and won, drawing
                   on the destructive power of your own fists."
    Weapon earned: ---
    Notes: If you want to do this the normal way, aim for the
           Nurses, Straight Jackets and other weak enemies.
           However, this can become a lot easier if you pound down
           your enemies with the Moon Gauntlets and then stomp on
           them to count a fist kill. (I had already thought about
           this, but DARK SOLDIER 365 mailed me with the same tip,
           so I'll credit him. Thanks!!)
           Be careful though, if you get too excited and kill the
           enemies before stomping on them.
     - Sharpshooter
    How to get: Kill 75% of the enemies with a firearm.
    Aspect: A green camo hunter outfit, including a vest, pants and
            a hat. Looks like some 2nd amendment fanatic.
    Game examine: "You rejoiced in the power of firearms and faced
                   fear with a steady aim and the sound of gunfire."
    Weapon earned: ---
    Notes: This is very easy to get with a Tesla Rifle. This baby
           kills all enemies from a distance. Be careful though,
           this rifle isn't very effective at close range, since the
           monsters can attack you, even when you're firing.
     - Weaponsmith
    How to get: Kill more than 75% of the enemies with melee weapons.
    Aspect: Jeans, a jean jacket and a hair strip. Totally bad guy.
    Game examine: "You preferred to dispatch your monsters up close
                   and personal, and faced danger with a weapon in
                   your hand."
    Weapon earned: ---
    Notes: The Moon Gauntlets will do the job. They are so powerful
           that they will kill a Straight-Jacket in two punches, and
           will kill the final boss in 3 or so hits.
           Note that you only need to kill 75% of all monsters that
           you kill. So if you only kill 4 enemies during the entire
           game, 3 of them must be with melee weapons. You still get
      - Butcher
    How to get: Kill more than ~150 enemies.
    Aspect: Some bloodied brown clothes belonging to a serial killer.
    Game examine: "You brought Travis face to face with a terrible
    Weapon earned: Great Cleaver
    Notes: This is an easy accolade to get if you use the Tesla Rifle
           or the Moon Gauntlets. Just make sure that you kill
           everything you see, especially in the Sanitarium and in
           the streets of Silent Hill, which shouldn't be too hard at
     - Ambassador
    How to get: Get the UFO ending.
    Aspect: An orange jacket and grey pants. They seem to be made
            with some kind of alien fabric.
    Game examine: "You uncovered the alien conspiracy behind events
                   in Silent Hill."
    Weapon earned: Tesla Rifle (infinite ammo)
    Notes: You can get this in two occasions: Right after the burning
    house, in the streets in Silent Hill, and after the Artaud
    Theater, on your way to the Riverside Motel. In both chances you
    can pass by the post office. Near that office is a fire ladder.
    Climb the ladder and at the top there is the Room 502 key, with a
    crescent moon tag. In Riverside Motel you get the chance of using
    this key in a room. Consult a full FAQ for more info on how to
    get to that room.
     - Codebreaker
    How to get: Enter the Konami Code (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left,
                Right, Left, Right, X, O) at anytime, without opening
                the menu or pause menu.
    Aspect: Very nerdy. A brown vest and pants, and glasses again...
            Definitely not Travis.
    Game examine: "You called on the power of an ancient incantation"
    Weapon earned: ---
    Notes: Let's face it. This in the hardest accolade to get...
