  1. when i have time i play with my lil bro (8 years old) he always uses Chris (Safari) as the double rocket launchers but i personaly prefer Jill (BSAA) just go with the characters you are best with then practise abit you will learn new tricks on where to aim when and how if u can pick up all the timers without a kill then use a flash grenade on the chicken just pull out ur guns and shoot whatever (if you use Wesker (S.T.A.R.S) shoot them in the leg go behind them and do mustang kick pretty much a 1 hit kill conserve ammo also so if u dont wanna waste much ammo try doing a move that can kill them easily like chris's Neck Breaker Shevas Throat Slit and so forth to Neck grab with jill alot of people cant seem to kill all 150 in each map (yeah its very easy even on solo....) alot of people go for stronger guns than the handguns yeah but the handguns let u use certian moves that u cant before but for big things u have to change to a heavy weapon so u cna do upper cut ect but if u do a team work way u can sometimes get a 3 way combo like Chris Straight Sheva Roundhouse and then Chris Haymaker ect try teaching ur lil sis on how to work with diffirent guns nd how 2 work do each move my lil bros highest score in solo is 89,500 mine in solo is 343,893 i play alot tho so if u can teach her how to work with a good character u can easily kill everyone (REALLY IMPORTANT) alot of people kill not keeping there combo but the higher ur combo is the higher ur score is when it finishes

    i hope that helps but good luck and ul catch up 2 me in no time SS all maps and chars....

  1. 5 years old? Wow. That's really young. The only suggestion I can make is to maybe enlist the help of a friend for faster kills. I don't think there's any tip or trick that can help a slower player make up for their speed, unfortunately. Hope this helps.

  2. having better characters can make killing faster, like using Tribal Sheva
    you should be able to get more than 51k with two people, alot more. just break all of the time statues for more time

  3. You need to get a really high combo if your sister can kill and help you then that's good just get a high combo and keep grabbing the hidden time statues. If you search really good you can pick up a hourglass and you can rack up to as much as 15k if you hunt enemies down.

  4. Honestly, you will have to play single. Pick a character with a strong gun (preferrably a shot gun for its widespread shot) get all the time and start killing, proceed toward any combo times only if there is a number of enemies following or in the immediate area. Hope this helps.

  6. Collect the time statues first. You don't want to be worrying about them halfway through an intense run.

    Try dropping your less useful gun. If you've got a pistol and machine gun, let go of your pistol and pistol ammo. Enemies only drop ammo for the guns you have in your possession. This also frees slots for grenades.

    There is always 1 chicken on every level (there's 2 on one of the levels). Kill it for 2,000 pts and a golden egg (which fully restores your health).

    Stay together. 9 out of 10 times there's a zombie behind you. Watch each other's backs.

    If you're still having trouble, find maps of the levels online. They'll show you where to find pickups. If you're the stronger player, be sure to give all the heal items to your sister.

  7. For playing by yourself, use the default Chris that you start with. Immediately ditch your handgun, and use the shotgun. Run around and collect all the time statues, then get into a groove. When you find it, go collect the combo times, and kill as fast as possible. It's helpful to have a friend who knows the game watch your surroundings and your ammo count so you can reload at the most beneficial time.

    My friend and I have done this together, and we've A ranked the first 5 levels on the first try. You just have to know how things need to be killed, and know where to go. Good luck.

  8. Don't listen to these guys. pistols are your best friend. go on youtube and watch the pros if you doubt me. its all about the single pistol shot to an instant melee kill. If Chris or Jill use a pistol shot to the leg and then run behind the enemy and pow instant neck breaker. If Wesker use a pistol shot to the head and then just do a cobra strike for an instant kill (definately the most effective, i.e. the top scoring character on all the online leaderboards). For Sheva..... well just dont use Sheva unless its Tribal Sheva and then its all about instant bow kills. The instant kills really racks up the combos and you get a +5 second time bonus for each one, which really adds up over the game. Get to know each map and soon even SS ranking will be in your future. Trust me I am proof.
    Just remember, shotguns are for suckers but pistols are for pros!!!
    oh and you should play single player, a five year old girl will not only weigh you down but she shouldnt be playing this game at her age anyways.
