    Here you can get to know the main characters of Yakuza: Dead Souls.
    NOTE: The following information was taken directly from the loading screen 
    during the game's installation process.
    The mysterious owner of Sky Finance, a mony-lending firm. Some say he was 
    homeless in the not-so-distant  past. Also owns the hostess club elise.
    April 1, 2011 was like any other day, with his assistan, Hana, pestering him 
    to make his collection rounds.
    But the two of them were in for the shock of their lives.
    A hyper-combative yakuza once known as Mad Dog Majima.
    Now patriarch of the Tojo Clan's Majima Family, and head of the Kamurocho Hills
    development project.
    Around the same time he heard a one-time enemy, Ryuji Goda, had returned to 
    Kamurocho, the town found itself teeming with zombies.
    His response, however, was unbridled, maniacal laughter.
    Former chairman of the Omi Alliance's Go-Ryu Clan.
    Staged a coup against the Omi Alliance five years ago and invaded Kamurocho.
    But he lost a battle with Kiryu and was expelled from the Omi Alliance.
    He dropped out of sight for five years until resurfacing in Kamurocho once 
    The legendary yakuza known as the Dragon of Dojima. Once served as the fourth 
    chairman of the Tojo Clan.
    Currently runs the Sunshine Orphanage in Okinawa, enjoying a peaceful life

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Yakuza: Dead Souls features a very wide variety of enemy types. This section of
    the guide will give you strategies to deal with each different enemy in an 
    effective manner.
    Recommended weapon: Any
    The undead are the most plentiful enemies in the game. They come in a variety 
    of shapes and sizes. The normal zombies shuffle around and lunge at you, and 
    they can be killed virtually any way possible. There is a buff, charging zombie
    that will knock you down. Then there are zombies that are super-powered and 
    require more ammunition to put away.
    Monkey Boy
    Recommended weapon: Shotgun/Melee
    The Monkey Boys are young boys that have been turned into the undead. They roll
    around on rollerblades and have bicycle helmets. They can latch onto you and 
    your partners and take away a very large amount of health. They can also do 
    baseball slides to tackle people. The best strategy is to knock them down with 
    a kick or a shotgun blast, and then attack them while they are on the ground 
    and vulnerable.
    Meat Head
    Recommended weapon: Machineguns
    Meat Heads are armored monsters that have one very obvious weak spot: their 
    face. Their face is the only unarmored part of their body. Blast them directly 
    in the face to deal the most damage. It's good keep distance between you and 
    them as many of their attacks are close-ranged. They also throw explosive 
    barrels and boulders and other objects.
    Cry Baby
    Recommended weapon: Any
    Cry Babies cower in fear and scream, attracting the attention of zombies and 
    making more and more show up. Cry Babies will keep spawning new zombies in this
    manner until they are killed. They should always be a priority when faced with 
    multiple enemies at once. They are easily killed, but they run away.
    Recommended weapon: Shotgun/Machineguns
    Aggros are fast-paced and very dangerous. They perform acrobatics and 
    light-footed, able to dodge many attacks. The best plan of attack is to use a 
    shotgun or a machinegun, and constantly laying fire in their direction until 
    some hit. When they charge for a running strike is a perfect time to blast them
    in the face. They can deal devastating melee combos. The good thing about 
    Aggros is that they do not engage in battle unless they are attacked first.
    Recommended weapon: Handgun/Sniper rifle
    Fatties walk around and serve as boosts to the other zombies around. They have 
    a special gas in their bodies that when it is released, it powers up the other 
    monsters that are in the gas. They are easily killed if you shoot them in their
    stomachs and release the gas. You need to shoot them directly in the head to 
    kill them efficiently without boosting up the other enemies in the area.
    Recommended weapon: Shotgun/Machineguns
    Dipteras are flying demons. They move around and actively try to avoid your 
    attacks, which can't be said about all the enemies. They spit acid which does a
    decent amount of damage. Close-ranged shotgun shots do well, as do machinegun 
    Recommended weapon: Molotov Cocktails
    Hermits are armored enemies that are practically invincible until their armor 
    is destroyed. You can destroy their armor just by shooting them with regular 
    rounds, but there are quicker ways to get armor off of it. Using fire by 
    blowing up barrels or cars or whatever does well to destroy their armor, but 
    chucking a few Molotov Cocktails does well, too. When their armor is gone, 
    their exposed bodies only take a few more shots and they are done with.
    Recommended weapon: Various
    Prototypes are the bosses in the game. There is a wide variety of Prototypes in
    the game, and you will find detailed strategies to deal with each individual 
    Prototype throughout the walkthrough.

    4. Walkthrough
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    The game opens with Kiryu receiving a phone call at the Sunshine Orphanage that
    he runs that someone has kidnapped Haruka, the daughter of his dead soulmate.
    But then shifts perspectives to Shun Akiyama. As he strolls the streets of 
    Kamurocho, his assitant Hana chases him down. She forces him to get his work 
    done. After their conversation is over, you will have control of Shun!
    You are cut off from exploring the city, so head north. On your radar, you will
    see a pink arrow pointing north anyway. That pink arrow indicates your next 
    objective. Taking a few steps down the road will initiate a short scene in 
    which an old man gives you Memos. These have various information, including 
    info about characters, tips, and more.
    Walk forward a little bit more to trigger another cut-scene. A strange man 
    walks into a building, and then winds up in the elevator. He bites someone in 
    the elevator, an event that is witnessed on a security camera by a high ranking
    yakuza official. He orders his men to prepare as the elevator comes up to their
    floor. The bitten man falls to the ground, dead, and the zombie stumbles out of
    the elevator. He is riddled with bullets, but does not die.
    As Hana and Shun continue walking down the street, a crowd gathers, attracted 
    to the gunshots coming from the building. The zombie manages to kill everyone 
    inside, tossing the yakuza boss out of the window. The yakuza boss then bites a
    cop that tries to help before turning his attention to Hana. Hana flees as 
    Akiyama threatens the zombie. The cop gets the zombie's attention by firing a 
    few slugs into its back, but he is then attacked by a zombie that falls out of 
    the window and lands on him.
    Akiyama runs for the subway system, but he is cornered! You will once again be 
    able to play the game. In this instance, the game will teach you how to shoot 
    your weapon and hold back the zombie horde. First, the game will ask you to 
    simply shoot at the zombies. To shoot, point your character towards the zombies
    and then tap R1. Tap R1 repeatedly to blast the zombies to hell. Keep doing 
    this until the game declares your attempts a "SUCCESS"!
    The second skill the game teaches you is how to reload. You can reload after 
    a clip runs dry by tapping R1 again, but as explained by the tutorial, pressing
    Square will reload faster. Waste a few bullets into the zombies and then press 
    Square to reload. Do this again to complete the second part of the shooting 
    The third and final rung of your zombie combat training is to learn how to 
    strafe. To strafe, hold down L1 to position the camera behidn Akiyama, or 
    whoever you happen to be controlling. Then use the left stick to move to the 
    left or right to strafe. Do this while firing at the zombies for a while until 
    the game decides you've done enough. Now kick some zombie ass! Kill all the 
    zombies in this area using your newfound skills.
    When they're all dead, Hana will rush into the subway to check on Akiyama. 
    Akiyama and Hana decide to return to the Sky Finance offices. Use your radar 
    to get through the streets and to the office building. You will have to cut 
    through an alleyway filled with bicycles to reach the stairs that lead up to 
    your offices. Climb up the stairs to conclude this chapter.
    Akiyama will plop down on his couch and start smoking, obviously disturbed 
    with the experience. He and Hana reflect a little on the strange events, and 
    Hana decides to stay the night with Akiyama to make ure he's okay. Hana tells 
    Akiyama to "keep his hands off". Akiyama laughs at the notion that he could be 
    attracted to an obese girl such as Hana, hurting her feelings.
    Akiyama wakes the next morning, having falling asleep reading a magazine. He 
    finds Hana asleep on the couch, visibly shaking. Akiyama checks on her, only to
    discover that her mild temperature from the day before has climbed 
    dramatically. A pounding on the door wakes Hana, and startles Akiyama. He grabs
    his pistol and approaches the door with caution.
    Suddenly the door is knocked off the hinges. Akiyama takes a few steps back to 
    gain a strategic vantage point. Multiple zombies begin pouring into the office.
    Time for more Zombie Suppression lessons! The game will teach you how to dodge 
    the undead. To do so, you need to use the X button to roll around. Just do this
    a few times to accomplish this first step.
    Step two is to teach you how to kick. If there are no items on the ground to 
    pick up, simply pressing O will cause the character to kick. However, if you 
    need to kick and avoid picking up whatever is on the ground near you, you have 
    to hold L1 to initiate strafing, and then kick. Kick the zombies in the 
    apartment a few times to get this part over with. Try to stay away from the 
    middle of the room, though, as they can surround and kill you pretty easily. 
    Remember that kicking zombies will not kill them, but it's useful when you need
    to knock them back a bit and get breathing room or escape.
    And finally, it's time to learn how to use weapons that are just lying around 
    to your advantage. By pressing O when there's a red arrow above an object, you 
    will pick that object up. Press R1 to use the object as a weapon. In this 
    specific case, the game wants you to grab golf clubs from the golf bag lying 
    on the ground near the bookcase. One swing and the club will break, so stick 
    by the bag as you bash the zombies in the head with the clubs. Repeat the 
    process until the game is satisfied with your ability to hit dead things with 
    sporting goods.
    With these tutorials complete, it's time to, you guessed it, "kick some zombie 
    ass!" Mash on R1 until all the freaks are dead. Since they have been damaged 
    by the golf clubs, they will be easy pickings.
    Akiyama looks out the window to discover that the city has been overrun with 
    more zombies. He asks her if she can walk, but her fever is too powerful and 
    she is unable to. He decides to go ask Doctor Emoto for help for Hana. Hana 
    refuses to stay in the offices with the dead zombies (...). Akiyama carries her
    down the stairs to the second floor, where there's a bar. He hides her in the 
    bar and then returns to the city streets to retrieve medical help for her.
    The game then teaches you about the map, or radar as I like to call it. The 
    mini-map at the bottom left hand corner of the screen is very useful, as I've 
    already pointed out. There's also a big map you can access through the pause 
    menu. These maps show areas you haven't been to yet in blue, the next primary 
    objective in neon pink, and they also point out areas such as shops that can 
    prove to be useful during the game.
    Leave the backlot through the alley. You'll see a van with a few zombies 
    standing on top of it across the street. As you make your way towards the van, 
    the game will stop you for yet another tutorial. This time it's about aiming! 
    You can't move and shoot, but by pushing L2, you can aim your weapon. Do this 
    now to take out the zombies that are standing on top of the van. Don't worry 
    about ammo; at this juncture, it is infinite.
    When the zombies die, you will level up! And guess what? The game will then go 
    into a tutorial to teach you about leveling up. By completing objectives and 
    killing zombies in the game, you will earn XP. When you earn enough XP, you 
    will go up in level. This will increase the amount of health you have as well 
    as give you a "Soul Point" to spend.
    To spend the Soul Point you just got, press start to open the Pause Menu. Then 
    scroll down to "Abilities" and press X. From this screen, you will be able to 
    purchase new abilities, improve existing ones, and more. Right now there's not 
    much to upgrade with only one Soul Point. The Head Tracking ability is a good 
    choice, though, especially if you don't like the aiming in the game. At any 
    rate, you are forced to spend the Soul Point, so do so, and remember that you 
    can cycle through the various ability screens using L1 and R1. Once you have 
    made your upgrade, back out of these menus. Keep in mind I will not remind you 
    to upgrade yourself, as that part of the game is supposed to be based purely 
    on your own personal playing preferences.
    Continue down the street, towards the pink arrow on your mini-map. Akiyama will
    pause to watch a group of zombies around a destroyed van. Kill them all, then 
    continue. A barricade prevents Akiyama from continuing down the road, but he 
    decides that he can cut through the building to the left to get around and 
    continue towards Emoto's conlic. Kill any remaining zombies and then go through
    this building as per Akiyama's suggestion.
    Kill the zombies in the first room, then go up the stairs. Kill the zombies 
    here as well. A few more will show up, so kill them too, and then head towards 
    the broken window at the end of this room. The game will then return to 
    "tutorial mode" to teach you about exploding barrels. Basically, shoot the 
    barrels enough times and they blow up. Do so to kill all the zombies in the 
    room and blow open the nearby door.
    Go through the next room. Then down the stairs, and up the next stairs. The 
    path is linear until you reach a closed door that seems like a dead end. A 
    bunch of zombies will then burst through the door. Hold your position and kill 
    as many as possible. If they begin to overwhelm you, retreat, and then return 
    to killing them. When the coast is clear, go through the doorway that they 
    broke through and down that stairwell. Kill any stragglers, and then keep 
    going through the building until you reach an actual dead end.
    Akiyama will then turn around, revealing a few zombies entered the room behind 
    you. Kill them all. A few more will come into the room as well. If they begin 
    to overwhelm, mash on the X button and escape into the hallway. They won't 
    leave the room, so you can kill them all from the safety of the hallway and 
    won't have to worry about getting hurt! When they're all dead, return to the 
    Akiyama will approach the boarded up wall that is impeding his progress. The 
    game then teaches you about how to destroy some environmental obstacles. You 
    can shoot the wall or kick it until its health meter at the bottom right 
    corner of the screen is depleted and the wall is destroyed. You have infinite 
    ammo, so do whichever method pleases you most to destroy the boarded up wall. 
    Then jump through the hole and back outside.
    The game then teaches you about the checkpoint system. Yes, you've already 
    gotten a checkpoint earlier, but I don't know why it decides to teach you 
    about them now. At any rate, you will periodically get a checkpoint during 
    chapters. As you could imagine, you can return to these checkpoints if you 
    happen to die.
    Head forward. Kill the zombies, then cross the street. Go through the alley. 
    Kill the zombies in the backlot, and then go through the next alley. You will 
    yet again be stopped to be taught about health. There is an energy drink in 
    the middle of this alley. Pick it up. If you need health, go to the pause 
    menu, then the sub-menu labeled "items" and use the energy drink. Otherwise, 
    continue into the street and towards the pink arrow on your mini-map.
    Time to learn about Heat Sniping! Heat Sniping is Akiyama's special attack. If 
    you haven't noticed, at the upper left corner of the screen, there is a green 
    bar. This bar is filled by attacking zombies. Fill this bar completely by 
    firing at the zombies crowding around the car in the middle of the street. Once
    it is filled, the game will then tell you how to actually perform the Heat 
    Snipe ability.
    Basically, whenever there is a green exclamation point surrounded by a 
    segmented circle, that is something that can be "Heat Sniped". The gas tank on 
    the car that the zombies are hanging out at is one such thing. Press triangle 
    to enter the Heat Snipe mode. Make sure to focus on the gas tank of the car, 
    and then tap R1. A button will then pop up on the screen, and you have until 
    the meter running through that button runs out to press it. Complete this QTE 
    to successfully nail the gas tank with a heated round to blow the zombies sky 
    With the zombies dead and the car well destroyed, keep heading forward down 
    the street. The "STOP" icon on your mini-map will appear, but ignore it for 
    now. Head that way anyway to initiate another cut-scene. It appears that the 
    government has sectioned off your part of the city from the rest, making 
    Emoto's clinic inaccessible. Frustrated, Akiyama starts pounding on the large 
    metal gate that's in place, attracting the attention of a yakuza named 
    Nagahama reveals he knows a way to get past the gate. However, the way out is 
    infested with zombies. With Akiyama reluctant to hand over his own gun, 
    Nagahama agrees to show him the way if Akiyama were to get him a gun of his 
    own. Nagahama tells Akiyama that a DVD shop has guns hidden under the counter 
    in case of robberies. Akiyama agrees to get Nagahama a weapon in exchange for 
    the information.
    Once you regain control of Akiyama, head straight down the road. I recommend 
    killing all the zombies here since there is a lot of space to move around and 
    it's like shooting fish in a barrel. There are explosive canisters lying around
    that you can shoot with your Heat Sniping attack to kill clusters of them at 
    once. When they're all dead or if you choose to run by the zombies, hug the 
    right side of the street near the theater to find a staircase that descends. 
    The pink objective marker will appear on your mini-map now, indicating that's 
    the way to go.
    Go down the stairs. Kill the zombies down here, and then go down the escalator.
    Continue forward, and you'll be stopped by a "brash woman". This scientist 
    offers you a deal. For data on zombies, she'll reward you greatly. She 
    introduces herself as Hasegawa, and she is from outside the quarantine zone. 
    By completing various side objectives during the game, you can fulfill these 
    challenges given to you by Hasegawa. Return to her outside the quarantine zone 
    when you have done this to earn points that can be used to gain rewards. You 
    can also accept specific missions from her yourself, known as Spec Ops, to 
    earn even more points.
    But for now, Hana is priority. Go down the next set of stairs indicated on your
    mini-map. Kill the zombies down here and approach the door. Press X to go 
    through the door. You will be taken to a screen that will grade your 
    performance during this chapter so far, which will net you extra XP and Soul 
    Points, if you have done well enough.
    Walk into the DVD shop. Nagahama will catch up with you, along with a ragtag 
    group of survivors. Luckily one of the survivors had worked in the shop 
    previously and can input the code to access the hidden guns. Akiyama gets first
    pick at the guns since he cleared the path there. He'll choose a pistol to 
    match his own for dual-wielding, a sub-machinegun, and another pistol. The 
    game will then teach you how to equip weapons.
    Go to the pause menu. Then choose "equipment". Then equip the new guns to 
    the d-pad. Afterwards, back out of the menu. You can talk to the survivors. 
    When you are ready to leave, speak with Nagahama. He will ask you if you're 
    truly ready. Say that you are, and you will be taken out of the DVD shop 
    The exit out of the quarantine zone is located on Suppon Street. Nagahama is 
    coming with you, and you will be taught how to give orders to partners. Hold R2
    and scroll through the list of orders with the d-pad. Tell Nagahama to attack 
    to satisfy the game and let it know you know what the hell you're doing. He 
    will then complain about being injured. To tell a partner to heal themselves, 
    you have to hold R2 and press O. They will not heal themselves automatically, 
    so you need to keep an eye on their health meter as well as their number of 
    first aid kits.
    Go up the stairs. Murder all the zombies. Then go up the escalator. Go up the 
    next flight of stairs to reach the streets. Outside, you will be greeted by 
    yet another mob of zombies. Nagahama will suggest a co-op Heat Snipe. Raise 
    the meter by attacking the mob until it is full. The symbol near your 
    partner's face will indicate when a co-op Heat Snipe is possible. If the symbol
    is glowing green, then that's your cue to press Triangle and initiate the 
    co-op Heat Snipe.
    Use the Heat Snipe to kill the mob of zombies. It functions very similarly to 
    the Heat Sniping you've done earlier. With that mob dead, continue killing your
    way through the streets, all the while heading towards the pink objective 
    marker on the mini-map. At a certain point, you will come across an alley that 
    contains a brand new monster. These Meat Heads are giant, tank-like enemies 
    with their only weak spot being their meaty heads.
    Firstly, use the explosives in the alley to thin out the zombies and deal 
    damage to the Meat Head as well. Then take out the stragglers and lure the 
    Meat Head into the street. Then run past him and down the alleyway. From this 
    position, take aim and use your machinegun to deal a ton of damage to his head.
    After he dies, continue down the alleyway until you are introduced to the 
    The stockpiles are similar to item boxes in the older Resident Evil games, 
    except they also contain new items. You can manage your inventory with these. 
    Take all the supplies out of this stockpile. When you're done, approach the 
    manhole cover on the ground. Press X on top of it. Nagahama will use a crowbar 
    to open it, and then both of you will head into the sewer, which leads 
    outside of the quarantine zone.
    It's too dark to see in the sewer at first, but Nagahama gives you an LED light 
    to brighten up the sewer a bit. Then it's just a matter of pushing your way 
    through the sewers, murdering zombies. You'll reach a larger, open room with a 
    crazy amount of the undead, so use the explosive barrels in that area to your 
    advantage. Then continue through the sewer system until there's a path to the 
    left, and a room in front of you. Go into the room to find energy drinks lying 
    on the ground, then backtrack and take the other path. Zombies will fall from 
    the ceiling, so kill them, then continue through the sewers.
    You will come across the Cry Baby. If you're familiar with the Left 4 Dead 
    games, these chicks are like that. They scream at the top of their lungs, 
    attracting the attention of the zombies nearby. Unlike the Witch, the Cry 
    Babies aren't extremely deadly. You just need to kill her as quick as possible,
    or else zombies will constantly spawn. This is actually a good way to farm XP 
    if you have enough healing items to make sure you won't die. In any case, kill 
    the Cry Baby, defeat all the leftover zombies, and then continue through the 
    sewers until you reach a ladder.
    You'll be out of the quarantine zone once you open the manhole cover. Nagahama 
    will decline returning to the zombie-infested areas to help you with Hana, but 
    he does offer a tip about an underground arms dealer that sells new weapons as 
    well as upgrades ones that you already have. Nagahama and Akiyama depart on 
    good terms.
    Dr. Emoto's clinic is nearby. Start heading towards the purple objective marker
    on the mini-map. You will be stopped by Kamiyama, the brother of the weapons 
    dealer that Nagahama was talking about. He will lead you to a truck where he 
    and his brother sell and mod weapons. You can also purchase various items from 
    Kamiyama as well. Buy and sell as needed. Kamiyama will offer a room in the 
    back of his truck to be your hideout. You can save, mess around with items, and
    what-not back there as you please.
    Exit the truck when you're ready. As soon as you step outside, Hasegawa will 
    confront you and take you to the hospital where she works. She'll introduce 
    you to another one of her helpers, Akaishi, a member of the Crimson Shield 
    force that work to bring peace to Kamurocho. The Crimson Shield has been busy 
    searching for more ways in and out of the quarantine zone.
    The game uses this time to teach you about Free Battles. Free Battle is when 
    you enter the quarantine zone in an area that is not a part of the main story. 
    You do this to level grind, obviously. To see if you really have what it takes 
    to help her in the research of the zombies, Hasegawa forces you to complete a 
    Free Battle. Speak to the Crimson Shield member standing by the nearby blue 
    elevator to head to the Free Battle area.
    Kill all the zombies that you want, then head to the left area. Go up the 
    stairs, and kill all the zombies that get in your path. Fight your way to the 
    set of double doors and press X next to them to head into the next area. Fight 
    your way through the zombies, killing as many as you possibly can for the XP. 
    Keep fighting and going up stairs. You will encounter a Cry Baby eventually, so
    kill it. Then keep going until you come across an escalator. Stand near the 
    escalator and kill the zombies that come out of the ceiling for as long as you 
    can stand it, and then go up the escalator.
    Walk outside. Now that Akiyama has proven he can handle traveling into the 
    quarantine zone, it's time to head back to Hasegawa. Backtrack all the way to 
    the starting area. Kill any zombies that you want along the way. Be sure to 
    farm some if you feel like you need the XP, or if you simply want the XP. Once 
    you reach the big blue elevator doors again, press X to activate them.
    Hasegawa will reward you for your time and run off. She'll then send you an 
    e-mail giving you side missions. With this little detour dealt with, start 
    making your way back to Dr. Emoto's clinc again. When you finally reach it, 
    you will speak to his assistant. Unfortunately, Emoto is out on a call. Akiyama
    convinces the assistant to give him fever-reducing medicine for Hana's sake.
    Outside of the hospital, Akiyama is stopped from helping Hana yet again. This 
    time it's by an American named Gary that offers training for Akiyama. He 
    convinces Akiyama to follow him to the training grounds, which is the basement 
    of some raggedy building. You have to do a little bit of training. Choose 
    between Field Training or Shooting Training. Then complete it. Get your XP and 
    grade. Then exit through the door with the martial arts poster on it.
    You can return to Gary later for more training. You can earn XP and unlock 
    special attacks by doing his training, but right now, Hana still needs that 
    medicine. You will be asked outside of Gary's gym whether or not you want to 
    head directly back to the manhole. Choose to do this, then press X at the 
    manhole cover to return to the sewers.
    Fight your way back through the sewers. There will be a Cry Baby early on to 
    kill, and later two Meat Heads. I very much recommend killing the Meat Heads 
    since you are given a lot of room and they will yield a ton of XP after they 
    are killed. Once you reach the ladder that you entered the sewers with to begin
    with way back when with Nagahama, climb it to return to the quarantine zone.
    Backtrack your way through the streets now. Kill the zombies as they get in 
    your way. When you reach the playground, Akiyama will point out an area to go 
    through that will allow you to continue backtracking to Hana. When you reach 
    the backlot that has the stairs leading up to your office, there will be a Cry 
    Baby. Kill it. Kill the zombies, and then go up the stairs.
    Akiyama will find that the bar has been broken into, and blood covers the 
    walls. He goes into the room that he left Hana in, only to find that it is 
    inhabited by two zombies. These zombies have pink eyes and have considerably 
    more health than the zombies encountered thus far. Use the melee objects in the
    bar to wear down their health, and then lay into them with your firearms. Try 
    to swing at them in a manner that you can hit both of them simultaneously to 
    avoid being double-teamed.
    After they've both been defeated, Akiyama will look pretty lost as Hana is 
    missing. The bar's phone then rings. Akiyama answers it and, sure enough, it's 
    Hana! Hana reveals she had to run away due to zombies breaking into the bar. 
    She has fled to the Oriental Building. When the conversation is over, exit the 
    Kill any zombies and get into the street. Start heading towards the pink 
    objective marker. The Monkey Boy enemy type will be introduced. These fast 
    little buggers like to pounce on you and knock you off your feet. To defeat 
    them, run over and kick them to the ground. Then take aim and lay into them 
    with a few shots. They will get back up, but just keep repeating the process. 
    The best time to kick them is after you've successfully dodged one of their 
    Fight your way through the streets more until you find stairs leading down into
    the underground mall. There will be a lot of zombies down here, but kill them 
    all so you can mess with the nearby stockpile that has a ton of SMG ammo. Take
    what you want from the stockpile, then go through the doorway that is to the 
    immediate right of the stockpile.
    This will put you in the Central Parking Lot. If you check the ground, you will
    find a chainsaw that you can use. Fight your way through this parking lot. 
    There is a Meat Head to fight, but this fight is made even easier thanks to the
    fact that you can use many of the cars in the parking lot as great cover, 
    allowing you to shoot the face of the Meat Head from a safe and secure 
    Continue through the parking lot until you come across a dying SDF Officer. He 
    asks for help, but then dies. Approach his truck and press X to take control 
    of the turret on top. Use the turret to wipe out all the zombies in the area. 
    Hop out of the truck by pressing O when all the enemies are dead, and walk to 
    the end of the parking lot to find a manhole cover. Press X at the cover to 
    once again enter the sewers.
    Fight your way through the undead in the sewers. Keep slaughtering the zombies 
    until you come across a series of three barricades. Kill the zombies behind 
    the barricades before destroying them. Then destroy all the barricades and 
    keep fighting throught he sewers. You will then come across even more zombies 
    and a couple of Monkey Boys. Kill them all. Then climb the ladder to be 
    outside the Oriental Building.
    The SDF are attempting to set up another barricade in this area. However, their
    tanks is overrun by zombies, and a few of them are killed. The construction 
    crew manage to finish the barricade. Akiyama witnesses these events, but he is 
    snapped out of his distraction by Nagahama! Akiyama follows Nagahma to safety 
    as a ton of zombies are on his tail.
    Turn around and RUN from the zombies as they pile in. Down the hall, you will 
    find a Meat Head. Kill it, and then kill any of the zombies that actually 
    followed you into this building. Go down the escalator you reach, but not 
    before ravaging the stockpile for supplies.
    Kill all the zombies in your path as you continue to descend down stairs. Keep 
    going until you reach another dead end room. Akiyama will hear a crash. 
    Backtrack a bit to discover zombies have ripped a hole through the floor in the
    nearby room. How convenient! Murder them all and then drop through the hole. 
    Then get ready for a giant wave of zombies, including a Cry Baby. Kill them all
    and then continue pushing through the theater area.
    You will have to fight a Monkey Boy and a few more zombies before you reach the
    next door. Take care of them and then go through the following door. Continue 
    pushing through until you reach the room with the blue elevator. The room is 
    filled with Meat Heads and zombies, and Akiyama decides to ditch. Sprint 
    through the area to the exit. You'll have to wait for Nagahama to join you 
    before you can continue, though. Nagahama will go climb the ladder and open the
    manhole with his crowbar while you hold off the zombies at the bottom of the 
    Nagahama will be successful and Akiyama follows him up the ladder. The SDF 
    scramble to seal the manhole cover to prevent more leaks.
    Nagahama reveals to Akiyama that there are plenty more ways to break into the 
    quarantine zone. He takes Akiyama to one such area that will allow him to 
    reach Hana quickly. Before Akiyama can go save her, though, he is once again 
    sidetracked by a loony character. "A fidgety man" begins rambling to Akiyama 
    about a "cursed manhole cover". He will formally introduce himself as Kine and 
    then give you a side mission to go investigate the manhole cover.
    Hasegawa will then e-mail you with updated information about how to get in and 
    out of the quarantine zone, as well as some info about survivors trapped in the
    quarantine zone that you can investigate if you have the time. When you're 
    ready, speak with Nagahama to get back into the quarantine zone.
    Kill all the zombies in this initial area; if you don't, the game will not let 
    you progress. Once they're all dead, you can go through the hole in the wall 
    on the second floor. Kill the zombies and maneuver around the shelves. Grab 
    the Toughness Z off the ground and then walk out into the hallway. Kill any 
    zombies that are around and then examine the elevator.
    Akiyama will discover that the elevator is dead, but he deduces that there may 
    be a switch downstairs. Kill all the zombies and the Monkey Boy down here. 
    Then follow the purple objective marker into a small, adjacent room. Use the 
    stockpile here to gather supplies, and then interact with the switch on the 
    wall that is blinking red to activate the power. A noise will startle Akiyama 
    after he flips the switch.
    Turn around to see a Meat Head clamboring his way towards you. Fire at his 
    face until he gets close, then exit the small room before you can are cornered.
    Then run behind the Meathead. Wait for him to turn around, then finish him off.
    There's an elevator on this floor, too, so you don't have to go back up the 
    stairs. Just interact with the elevator doors on this floor to enter it.
    Find a corner and put your back to it. Then pull out a gun and aim. Zombies 
    will start falling into the elevator through the ceiling. Kill them all and 
    then put your back to the wall, facing the elevator doors. Pull out the fastest
    gun you have, and then take aim. The doors will slide open, and a bunch of 
    zombies will start pouring out. Kill them all, and then step into the hallway.
    Walk around the corner and get the attention of the Monkey Boy and the zombies 
    in the next room, ignoring the Meat Head for now. Then retreat back into the 
    hallway. Put your back against the wall that has the chainsaw lying in front of
    it and wait. Kill the zombies as they round the corner. Wait for the Monkey Boy
    to get close, then kick him to the ground and shoot him. Repeat the process 
    until he's dead.
    Poke your head around the corner and kill any straggling zombies. Then kill the
    Meat Head. Turn your attention to the Chinese door at the end of the room and 
    smash it. In the next hallway, quickly dispatch the Cry Baby, and once again 
    try to get your back to a wall so you can pick off the zombies as they come 
    and you can't get surrounded. When they're all dead, go up the flight of stairs
    to reach a stockpile and a checkpoint. Use the stockpile as needed then go up 
    the next flight of stairs, as indicated on your mini-map by the pink objective 
    As he reaches the next floor, a locker will fall down. Hana yells for help from
    inside the locker. Akiyama saves her from the locker, and gives her the fever 
    medicine. She feels almost instantly better, but then a large monster attacks! 
    This thing looks almost exactly like the Lickers from the Resident Evil games, 
    and it's deadly. Akiyama and Hana retreat into another room. The monster 
    prepares to attack, but suddenly, it is riddled with bullets. The group of 
    survivors that Akiyama encountered earlier and helped reach the DVD shop are 
    repaying their debt!
    Akiyama thanks them, and then tells them to get Hana to safety. They take Hana 
    out of the room, leaving Akiyama to finish off this monster. The Arahabaki 
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Arahabaki Prototype............................................................
    This Licker knock-off is no push-over. Run away from it and make sure it is 
    always on the opposite side of the room than you. Fire at it from this 
    distance, which will eat away at its health meter. The monster will try to 
    stretch out its limbs and tongue at you, but as long as you are far away 
    enough, it can't hurt you.
    Keep hitting it until it starts climbing on the walls and ceiling. You'll need 
    to find an advantageous point in the room so that you have a clear view of the 
    monster still, but all the while being out if its reach. Keep firing at it 
    until the green bar of its health is depleted.
    At this point, the Arahabaki Prototype will fall to the ground. Rush over to 
    it and aim straight down at the glowing diamond on its chest. Fire directly 
    into its chest at close range to deal a bunch of damage and drain its next 
    health meter. The monster will get back to its feet and then crawl up the walls
    and onto the ceiling. It will then pull itself through a hole in the ceiling.
    Aim upwards until you see its head poking through. Fire at its head until it 
    ducks away back inside the ceiling. At this point, just run around the room in 
    a circle to avoid its new attack, where it will smash its arm through the 
    holes in the ceiling and at the ground. After it does this for a while, it will
    poke its head out of the ceiling again. That is your cue to start laying into 
    the ugly beast.
    Keep repeating the process until it falls out of the hole and onto the ground. 
    Then rush over to it and start shooting the glowing red thing on its body again
    until it freaks out and runs away. It will start acting like it did at the 
    beginning of the battle, where it will run around the room, climb the walls, 
    and the ceiling, but it won't go back into the holes in the ceiling. At this 
    point keep shooting it until it falls again, then rush over and shoot the red 
    glowing thing on its body.
    Repeat the process until the Arahabki Prototype's health meters are completely 
    depleted and the monster is destroyed.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Arahabaki Prototype............................................................
    With the monster defeated, Hana and the other survivors rush back into the 
    room. Upon examination of the Arahabaki Prototype's dead body, it is deduced 
    that someone created the monster on purpose, and that the zombies and all the 
    horror that is happening in the city isn't just a new disease or mutation...
    Majima is a zombie film fanatic, and as he reflects on a yakuza meeting from 
    earlier, he enjoys one. He reflects on the information learned regarding the 
    fact that his old enemy Ryuji Goda has returned to town just in time for a 
    yakuza ceremony to take place, with his fellow yakuza lieutenants believing it 
    could be a trap.
    Majima's film-viewing is interrupted when his thugs are attacked by real 
    zombies in his home. Majima joyfully begins killing the zombies...
    All of the XP and items from your Akiyama will be transferred over in the shift
    to Majima's point of view, so don't worry about losing progress. Majima is 
    packing a huge and extremely powerful shotgun, so use that to thin out the 
    zombies in this room until they have all been killed. He will be disappointed 
    that they're all dead, but hopes that they are more outside his room. Go 
    through the door to exit.
    Majima discovers that the building has been absolutely overrun with the undead.
    This excites him, but he needs more ammo if he wants to continue killing them. 
    Work your way towards the staircase (all other paths will be blocked off), and 
    only kill zombies that you absolutely feel that you need to in order to save 
    Go up the stairs, and then go to the designated room. Walk to the end of the 
    room to find a stockpile. One of your thugs will be in this room as well, 
    hiding from the zombies. He gives you a note from Hisegawa, basically giving 
    Majima the same offer that she gave Akiyama.
    The thug will run off. Interact with the stockpile and take all the ammo and 
    healing items from it that you can carry. Then exit the room. Majima will 
    decide to go to floor 56 to find an elevator so he can escape the building. 
    Backtrack, and then go to the office room to the right once you reach the 
    bottom of the stairs.
    Kill all the zombies in the first part of this room, and then continue. The 
    new enemy type called the Fattie (Boomers?) will be introduced. When they are 
    killed, the zombies that are in their gas become super-powered. Kill it and all
    the zombies around it (the super-powered zombies are really no big deal), then 
    use the next staircase.
    Kill all the zombies in the next room, which will include a Monkey Boy. Fight 
    your way into the bar-area, where a group of zombies will spring to their feet.
    Take them out, then kill the Meat Head in this room, using the bar counter as a
    buffer between the two of you. Continue, and then you will find the elevators. 
    Interact with the designated elevator.
    Majima will then notice a Cry Baby has approached. The Cry Baby will attract 
    more zombies. Kill the Cry Baby and then kill all the zombies that are 
    summoned. When they're all dead, the elevator will arrive. Approach the 
    elevator and press X to get inside and ride it to the floor below.
    Majima is glad to see that there are plenty of zombies on this floor as well. 
    I recommend staying still and letting them come to you, as there truly are a 
    ton of zombies in this room. Kill them all as they come, and kill the two 
    Fatties as well. Once all the enemies are dead, Majima will decide it's time to
    go outside and kill even more zombies!
    Go up the escalator and then run along until you reach another elevator. Press 
    X at the elevator. Outside, Majima will notice people running and screaming 
    about a "monster". Use the Stockpile next to you and then head out into the 
    street. Walk towards the white van. Suddenly, a giant monster that looks like 
    an ape made out of boulders attacks the van, throwing it straight at Majima! 
    Majima laughs and dodges it, and then smacks the monster in the face with the 
    butt of his shotgun!
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Onraki Prototype...............................................................
    Another BOSS FIGHT!!! already?! Get away from the Onraki and get into the 
    nearby tank. Mash on the X button to load the missile, and then fire it 
    directly at the Onraki. Repeat this process until the tank is out of ammo, and 
    once you hop out of the tank, the rest of the Onraki's armor will fall off. If 
    you miss a shot or something along those lines, you will have to shoot the 
    Onraki with your shotgun until its armor falls off, but this takes longer.
    When its armor is off, find a lamp post or any other kind of obstacle. The 
    Onraki is too stupid to walk around things, meaning you can stand on one side 
    of the obstacle while it is on the other, just laying into its red glowing 
    heart with shotgun blasts. Whenever the Onraki lifts up its arms or jumps into 
    the air, though, mash the X button to avoid taking damage from the attack. The 
    same rule applies for when it tries to throw barrels or trash cans at you.
    If your health gets to even slightly below half, HEAL. The Onraki's attacks 
    almost always deal about 35% damage, making it an extremely deadly foe. Don't 
    be shy about using your healing items.
    The Onraki will occasionally pick up cars to throw at you as well. If you have 
    your Heat Snipe meter filled, you can shoot the car when it is above the 
    Onraki's head to blow it up, severely injuring the beast and making it fall to 
    the ground. This, of course, allows you to run up close and fire directly into 
    its heart without fear of it attacking.
    Heal, dodge, and shoot until the Onraki's health meters have all been drained 
    and the monster is dead.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Onraki Prototype...............................................................
    Majima will receive a phone call from his Yakuza bosses, asking why he isn't at
    the ceremony. He promises to be there in five minutes, but then he hears the 
    sound of zombies attacking them! Majima hangs up, excited to join them for 
    another "party". Continue through the streets, heading towards the pink 
    objective marker detailed on your mini-map. Make a pit stop at the next 
    military vehicle you see, and approach the side door of it to loot supplies 
    from it in a manner similar to Stockpiles.
    Blast your way through the narrow streets. You will come across yet another 
    new enemy type. This one is called Aggro, and they have martial arts attacks. 
    However, if you ignore them, they will ignore you. Leave this guy alone, and 
    continue through the streets, blasting away zombies, and maneuvering around 
    barricades and debris towards the pink objective marker.
    Majima will come across a large military barricade that is blocking his way 
    out of the quarantine zone.
    Tetsuo Nikaido pulls up in a limo. Nikaido is a part of a rival yakuza clan. 
    He helps Majima get out of the quarantine zone, and tells him to go save his 
    clan at the Kamurocho Hills ceremony, where they are being terrorized by 
    Outside the quarantine zone, you are free to use the truck or do whatever. If 
    you try heading towards the pink objective marker, you will find yourself 
    blocked from all directions. Run into two barricades, and Majima will suggest 
    using a path from the south. Go far south a few streets, then cut through an 
    alley and turn around, facing north, on the other side of one of the 
    barricades. Keep running north towards the pink objective marker.
    Majima will come across an area that has yet to be blocked with a quarantine 
    barricade. The SDF scramble to get the barricade set up, but Majima runs 
    through before they can place it. Majima crazily begins killing all the zombies
    as the SDF plead for him to return to the other side. They give up. You'll get 
    control of Majima yet again. Kill anything that gets in your way as you head 
    towards the objective marker. There will be a Cry Baby in this area as well as 
    a Meat Head; they are worth killing if you need XP. When you get closer to the 
    objective marker, there will be a Stockpile that you can loot.
    Go towards the big red shutter doors and press X to Kamurocho Hills. Majima's 
    yakuza buddies have reached higher ground and are shooting the zombies in the 
    plaza area from there. Wipe out ALL the zombies in this area. You'll have to 
    fight a Monkey Boy and a Fattie, but this shouldn't be too hard with Majima's 
    amazing shotgun at your disposal. When they're all dead, the yakuza will tell 
    Majima that he has to go "around the back" to get inside...which means 
    fighting more zombies...which means Majima is gonna have a good time.
    Fight your way to the rear entrance. Kill all the zombies and the Meat Head, 
    and then fight your way down the street, killing even more zombies. One of the 
    undead will be prone to chucking Molotov cocktails your way, so be sure to 
    shoot him before he can set you on fire. As you reach the entrance, there will 
    be a large horde of zombies along with a Cry Baby that will keep summoning 
    more. However, there are also explosive canisters here. A well-placed Heat 
    Snipe Shot will lower their numbers considerably. From that point, it's just a 
    matter of killing the Cry Baby and taking out the stragglers.
    When they're all dead, press X on the door. Inside the mall, ignore the small 
    group of survivors and walk up the broken escalator. Walk along the second 
    floor until you reach a barricade of tables. Cut through the jewelry store next
    to the barricade to get around them. Then keep going until you see a yakuza 
    standing down a long, empty hall. Approach him and he will take you to the 
    supermarket where the yakuza and most of the other survivors are hiding out.
    Majima is confronted by Azumi, who becomes enraged at being mocked by Majima. 
    Daigo Dojima, the leader, reveals that the first attack occured against their 
    own Tojo offices in Kamurocho. They believe that the zombie outbreak may have 
    been caused by Goda and Nikaid of the Omi Clan, but Dojima is not entirely 
    sure they would go this far to attack the Tojo yakuza clan.
    Majima then assumes control of the survival efforts. He orders everyone to help
    push selves against the windows, to protect the women and children, and to 
    start rationing the food and water. A little girl runs up to Majima and calls 
    him a super hero, which actually touches his sociopathic heart, showing Majima 
    is more than just a blood-thirsty lunatic.
    Majima decides to get to know his fellow survivors in the supermarket. You can 
    speak with them if you'd like, but when you're ready to advance the story, 
    speak to Daigo Dojima. He will recommend that you go sleep. Take him up on his 
    offer. Unfortunately, Majima's rest is interrupted.
    The Tojo yakuza race towards the mall in large dump trucks, firing at the 
    zombies. They crash into the main doors, but inadvertently let the zombies 
    inside of the mall! Daigo and Majima then rush to contain the problem, with the
    little girl from earlier wishing Majima good luck.
    Once they leave the supermarket, Daigo and Majima hear the sound of a child 
    crying coming from the bathroom. They decide to take out all the zombies on the
    second floor first so that they can save the kid. The child's crying has 
    caused the zombies to become super-powered in a manner similar to what the 
    Fatties do, so they deal more damage and will take more damage. At any rate, 
    move carefully through the second floor towards the bathrooms. Zombies will 
    climb up the railings as well, so check your back occasionally to make sure 
    you aren't being cornered.
    There will be a Monkey Boy, but that will be all in terms of any advanced 
    mutant zombies. When they're all dead, press X at the bathroom door. By the 
    way, Daigo only has one medical kit to heal himself with, but after you save 
    the baby, it will respawn. It turns out there was a mother in the bathroom as 
    well. The mother and the baby are instructed to return to the supermarket.
    Majima and Daigo then head to the first floor to clear out the zombies there. 
    Just move along the floor and kill everything. You'll have to kill a Monkey 
    Boy and a Fattie and even an Aggro, but just keep pushing through and killing 
    them all until they have all been eradicated. There is a Stockpile on the 
    first floor as well, near the stage, with a ton of ammo and grenades, just so 
    you know.
    When they're all dead, Majima and Doiga will go to the hole in the doors that 
    was created by their idiot yakuza men. They stand guard and kill the zombies 
    for a while as their men start building a barricade at the door. Majima then 
    realizes that it will be better if he uses himself as bait, and runs into the 
    middle of the zombie crowd. There will be a timer that appears at the top of 
    the screen at this point. Just keep killing zombies and keep them away from the
    doors as you do so until the timer runs out.
    A zombie lunges at Majima and bites his arm. Doiga leaves the barricade to help
    Majima. They keep killing zombies, and then decide to find another way into the
    building. However, a man in a sewer catches their attention with a reflection. 
    Majima and Doiga rush to him, but are cut off by the Arahabaki...this time one 
    that can turn invisible! Doiga goes to fight off the zombies as Majima fights 
    the Arahabaki.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Arahabaki Prototype A..........................................................
    This is the same monster that Akiyama faced, albeit this one can turn 
    invisible. Lucky for you, there is water all over the place that it will splash
    when it's invisible, so you can always know where it is. At any rate, this 
    fight is a much closer affair than the one Akiyama had, and as a result, uses a
    different strategy.
    The area that you can run around in is very small, but still try to stay out of
    arms-reach of the monster. Blast it constantly. When it turns invisible, you 
    should still be able to see where it is by using the disturbances in the water 
    as clues. Then return to blasting it repeatedly, preferrably with your shotgun.
    Other than that, the only thing you need to keep in mind is to watch for it to 
    reach its arm back. When it does this, it is about to swipe at you with its 
    elongated arm. That's your cue to press X to dodge out of the way. It may also 
    pounce on you, but that doesn't deal too much damage. Just mash on the X button
    repeatedly to escape its grasp. If your health gets to half or below half, you 
    need to heal.
    This fight is actually easier than the last, in my opinion. Just keep laying 
    into the beast until its health meters are depleted and it is dead.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Arahabaki Prototype A..........................................................
    With the monster dead, the man from the sewer pokes his head out of the manhole
    again. Majima and Doiga rush over, and they escape just in time to avoid being 
    completely overrun by zombies. The manhole actually leads to a subway system, 
    and the man is a homeless man. However, he works for an information dealer 
    that works in a place called "Purgatory" that Majima is familiar with. The 
    homeless man agrees to lead Majima and Doiga to Purgatory.
    Before moving down the tunnel, interact with the Stockpile to gather supplies. 
    Then follow the homeless man and Doiga down the tunnel. There are flamethrowers
    lying around that you can pick up and use very much to your advantage. The 
    Monkey Boy mutant type is easily killed with flamethrowers. There are multiple 
    Aggros down the path as well, and they are not as easily killed with 
    flamethrowers. Fight your way down the tunnel until you reach a barricade with 
    ladders that is surrounded by zombies.
    Kill all the zombies. There are explosive barrels near the barricade that can 
    be used to kill a bunch of them at once. There is a Fattie, a Monkey Boy, and 
    an Aggro in the bunch as well, so be sure to take out the special zombies. A 
    good strategy is to pick up the flamethrower lying on the ground and push 
    forward on the left side, shooting flames the entire time. This will allow you
    to blow up a barrel that will kill a very large chunk of the enemies. 
    Regardless of how you do it, make sure all the zombies and mutants are dead to 
    continue to Purgatory.
    Purgatory is an extravagant underground city. The homeless man will tell you 
    that "The Florist", the leader of Purgatory, is located clear at the back of 
    it. Start making your way there. An SDF officer will start yelling about zombie
    serum that he's selling. Doiga laughs it off, but Majima contemplates it, 
    feeling the strange throbbing in the arm that was bitten. Continue moving to 
    the end of the city until you reach Kage the Florist.
    Kage's information network is impressive. There are monitors all over the room,
    with cameras all over the city that he can observe. Unfortunately, Kage does 
    not know who started the zombie outbreak, only that Tojo yakuza clan offices 
    were attacked first. They zero in on the location of Nikaido, but Goda is 
    nowhere to be seen. Majima decides to go after Nikaido to see if he was the 
    one responsible for the outbreak, but Doiga decides to start a video conference
    with the Omi clan first to see if they really went to these great lengths to 
    damage the Tojo.
    Majima will decide to go on a walk instead of waiting around for the video 
    conference call. Leave this area through the nearby door. Majima's walk will be
    interrupted by none other than Akiyama! Akiyama suggests he and Majima go to 
    the batting cages to blow off steam...incidentally, that's where Nikaido's 
    whereabouts were said to be, and it's where Doiga specifically told Majima not 
    to go. Majima agrees to go with Akiyama anyway, who runs off to meet him there.
    In Purgatory, go to the manhole cover that is designated on your mini-map. 
    Press X to enter it and you'll be in the sewers. Move through the sewers and 
    exit them to be at a part of town known as Children's Park. Run through the 
    streets to find Akiyama chilling outside the batting center and speak with him.
    Majima and Akiyama head into the batting center and meet with the various 
    yakuza. An aged, red-headed woman doctor catches the suspicious eye of Majima 
    for a second. Majima and Akiyama walk into the actual batting cage area to 
    speak with Nikaido, but suddenly, a prototype monster attacks, at the 
    instruction of Nikaido!
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Tsuchigumo Prototype...........................................................
    This armored spider is a dangerous foe, with large, spear-like legs that he 
    will swipe at you, and the ability to curl up into a ball and roll at you with 
    tremendous force like a demonic Sonic the Hedgehog. Akiyama will help you fight
    him, at least!
    Dodge almost constantly. The Tsuchigumo has a variety of attacks, almost all 
    involving its spikey legs. It will try to swipe at you, it will roll at you, 
    and it will jump into the air and try to pounce on you or Akiyama. Constantly 
    fire at it, and try to aim at its chest, where the red glowing object inside of
    it is. If you have the Heat Snipe meter filled, you can use Heat Snipe when it 
    jumps into the air to blast it out of the way, allowing you and Akiyama to lay 
    into it until it jumps back up. Don't run over and try to shoot it while it is 
    on the ground like usual, though, as the red orb (its heart? I really don't 
    know) is very hard to shoot from any position, and it will probably get back to
    its feet by that time.
    After enough damage has been done, it will start to roll around and chase 
    Akiyama. This also exposes the red orb, however, so use this opportunity to 
    blast the hell out of that thing and deal significant damage. Keep in mind to 
    check Akiyama's health after a while, too, so you can tell him to use one of 
    his two medical kits.
    Keep repeating this process until the Tsuchigumo has been damaged to the point 
    that there's only a sliver of its health left. Akiyama then throws a grenade 
    towards Majima, and that's ripe fodder for a QTE. Press the button before the 
    meter runs out, just like in Heat Sniping, and Majima will use the butt of his 
    shotgun like a baseball bat and send the grenade flying into the mouth of the 
    Tsuchigumo, blowing it into a million little pieces.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Tsuchigumo Prototype...........................................................
    The Tsuchigumo is defeated, but the Nikaido and his men have split. A barricade
    blocking the quarantine zone from the rest of the city has been damaged, and 
    the zombies start piling in. They enter the batting center and begin to 
    surround Majima and Akiyama. As they prepare to fight, Majima's injured arm 
    begins to bother him. Suddenly, a mysterious man in a trenchcoat saves them...
    Meanwhile, Doiga has the video conference with the leader of the Omi Alliance. 
    He claims Nikaido is there on business unrelated to the Tojo yakuza. The Omi 
    leader is surprised to hear Ryuji Goda was spotted with Nikaido, as Goda was 
    banished from the Omi years prior. He swears that the Omi Alliance had nothing 
    to do with the zombie outbreak.
    The man in the trenchcoat is revealed to be Ryuji Goda! Akiyama and Majima are 
    amazed, especially when he turns his mechanical hand into a machinegun! You now
    are in control of Goda. Murder all the zombies with your machinegun arm until 
    the batting center is free of them.
    Goda will then recall how Tetsu Nikaido met up with him in Kamurocho. He tried 
    to convince Goda to rejoin the Omi Alliance, but Goda refused, now working as 
    the apprentice to a chef. Nikaido gave Goda a map with his location marked on 
    it in case he changed his mind. Nikaido's cryptic language unsettled Goda.
    Back in the present, Akiyama, Majima, and Goda decide to split up. Goda heads 
    outside the batting center to go investigate the place that Tetsu Nikaido said 
    he would be. But first he finds a note on the ground from Hasegawa. He reads 
    the note, and then prepares to slaughter all the zombies in the vicinity.
    Kill every zombie. You won't be able to continue until you have. Once they are 
    dead, start walking through the street. The cries of a man being attacked by 
    zombies attracts Goda's attention. Save him by killing the zombies that have 
    surrounded him. He then tells Goda he came to Kamurocho looking for his wife 
    and child. Goda tells him to continue looking as he prepares to stave off the 
    upcoming zombies.
    Kill the zombies in the street and work your way to the pink objective marker. 
    There will be a ton of zombies to kill with, but they really are no match for 
    Goda's machinegun arm. Keep killing them as you move up the street. Before 
    examining the building designated on your map, raid the Stockpile sitting next 
    to the barricade. Then examine the glass doors of the nearby building, which 
    was where Tetsu told Goda he was hiding out in Kamurocho before the zombie 
    outbreak occurred.
    Inside the building, kill the zombies and break through the fire door that's 
    blocking your way. Then keep killing zombies and pushing your way through the 
    building. There will be desks blocking your path and more fire doors, but they 
    can all be destroyed so that you can keep making your way through the halls of 
    the building.
    When you reach a dead-end, after fighting off plenty of zombies and a Monkey 
    Boy, press X against the very less door in that hallway. Inside will be a 
    small office FILLED with zombies. Quickly rev up the machinegun and kill them 
    all before things get too hectic. When all the zombies are dead, Goda will 
    investigate the room. He finds a map on the wall with a number of buildings 
    circled and crossed out, though one building, the Toshin Building, is not 
    crossed out. Curious, Goda heads back out into the streets to go investigate 
    the Toshin building.
    A Meat Head will be right in the middle of the road. Take it out, then check 
    the nearby alcove for ammo and a healing item. Then continue down the street, 
    killing anything that gets in your way. Goda will take note of the broken 
    barricade that allowed the zombies to flood this area, and decides to head that
    way for convenience. So, go through the barricade. Goda will stop as he sees 
    SDF officers backing up and firing at zombies. Kill the zombies and then the 
    SDF officers will ask to accompany you across the square so that they can 
    rendezvous with their fellow officers.
    This next section will eat away your ammo like crazy, so you may have to switch
    to the pistol using the d-pad. You have to wipe out the zombies in the square 
    area, and I mean ALL of them. There are a ton of mutants to deal with as well. 
    There are multiple Fatties, a Monkey Boy, a Meat Head, two Cry Babies, and an 
    absurd amount of zombies. You can't order around the SDF officers either, but 
    at least you don't have to babysit them. Kill everything that moves, then 
    continue onward towards the pink objective marker as usual.
    The SDF officers will thank Goda for his assistance and tell him of a stash of 
    supplies in the nearby abandoned military truck. Examine its side door to get 
    a TON of ammunition as well as plenty of healing supplies. After the last 
    section, you were probably hurting for ammo anyway, so this is a godsend. When 
    you've looted the stockpile, it's time to keep pushing towards the objective 
    marker through the mobs of the undead.
    Goda's path to the Toshin Building will be blocked by debris, but he eyes a 
    tank nearby. Get inside the tank. You'll discover that it is out of ammo. 
    Luckily, a radio transmission comes in, announcing that there is ammo and 
    supplies on Pink Street. Goda exits the tanks and starts towards Pink Street to
    retrieve the ammo, hoping for tank rounds.
    Slaughter your way through the zombies as you move down the street. You will 
    eventually be introduced to a new enemy type called Dipteras. These are winged 
    demonic-looking creatures that can spit acid. Use the dodge ability to avoid 
    their acid spit. Do not aim at them, but rather just point Goda in their 
    general direction and hold down the fire button to hurt them in the most 
    effective manner. When they're both dead, loot the nearby stockpile, and then 
    continue pushing through the street.
    You will come across an alleyway that is quite narrow and filled with zombies. 
    Murder them all. There will be about three Fatties in this corridor as well, so
    be sure to end them, too. When they're all dead, go through the alley. You will
    find four giant SDF supply crates in the middle of the street, but they aren't 
    the ones Goda's looking for. Move through them, and continue towards the 
    objective marker.
    In another alley, you will come across a Hermit. This new enemy type has a 
    protective rock covering and is only susceptible to flames. Trick it into 
    rolling into one of the explosive items in this alley, like the barrels, and 
    then continue on your way.
    Goda will be stopped by a person labeled "quiet man". He introduces himself as 
    Ibuki, and he and Goda exchange pleasentries. He asks Goda to help him rescue 
    a few civilians in exchange for transport for the tank rounds. Goda agrees, and
    on cue, two people charge down the road with a bunch of zombies right on their 
    Kill all the zombies in the area. Meet up with them, as they armed, and they 
    will help you kill the rest of the zombies. When they're all dead, the two men 
    will introduce themselves as yakuza members. Goda agrees to take them to the 
    place where the rest of the civilians Ibuki has saved are holed up.
    Fight your way to the building. Inside, Ibuki will ask you to save a few more 
    groups that are still stuck behind the quarantine zone. To sweeten the pot, 
    he offers to allow you to prepare in the building. Use their Stockpile to 
    replenish your ammo supply, get rifle ammo, and get a ton of healing items, 
    too. Then examine the door to exit the building.
    Run back to the area where you saved the two yakuza dudes. You'll find a trio 
    of survivors being terrorized by zombies. Kill all the zombies and lead them 
    back to the entrance of the building. When all three are close, examine the 
    entrance and they will all file into the building. There's one group down, just
    two more to go.
    Back out in the street, backtrack deeper into the quarantine zone. Move past 
    the SDF supply crates, and then keep moving. The Stockpile you encountered in 
    this area from earlier will have a few more treats inside. Move past it and 
    Goda will notice a couple of yakuza being attacked by zombies, though they are 
    attempting to fend them off with a couple of metal poles. Help them out by 
    killing the zombies around them, and start leading them back to the safehouse. 
    A large swarm of zombies will appear as you go, so kill them all and then 
    continue towards the safehouse. Wait for them to catch up to you, then examine 
    the front door. They will then join up with the other survivors inside.
    Backtrack through the quarantine zone yet again. This time keep backtracking 
    until you reach the military truck you looted earlier. There will be more 
    supplies inside of it again, so be sure to take as much as you can carry, and 
    then keep going. You will reach a fork in the road, with both areas covered in 
    blue on your mini-map. That means you have yet to explore either path with the 
    current character. Take the path leading south to bump into the third group of 
    survivors that you need to take back to the safehouse.
    This group includes a few yakuza members as well as the two SDF soldiers from 
    earlier. Apparently the other SDF guys they were supposed to meet up with 
    abandoned ship. Well, lead this large group of survivors back to the safehouse.
    Kill any of the zombies that get in the way. Keep pushing until you reach the 
    supply crates. When you're standing in the middle of them, make sure all the 
    survivors are also doing so. Turn around, and you'll see that a huge swarm of 
    zombies has started pursuing you through the alley. Use Heat Sniping to shoot 
    the gas pipe attached to the side of the building to create a flame that will 
    block them and allow you to continue to the safehouse without having to fight 
    all the zombies. Otherwise, you will probably need to kill a considerable 
    amount, and with the way Goda burns through ammo, that's not necessarily a 
    wise idea at this juncture.
    Get the survivors back to the safehouse and examine the front door to see them 
    all inside. Goda heads inside himself to speak with Ibuki. Ibuki gives you a 
    forklift key so that you can transport the SDF supplies to the tank. Back out 
    in the streets, the forklift is very close nearby tucked away in a backlot. 
    Press X on the forklift to take control.
    The forklift controls are as follows:
    L - MOVE
    R2 - FORWARD
    L2 - BACK
    O - GET OUT
    With that in mind, start driving out of the backlot and into the alley, 
    towards the large SDF supply crates. Focus your attention on the crates that 
    are marked with a Japanese flag on the side. Pick up the crate on the far left 
    and then place it on top of the crate that is right in front of it. Then focus 
    your attention on the two crates stacked on top of each other immediately next 
    to the ones you just stacked. Grab the crate off the top of this stack, and 
    then place it where you picked up your first crate. Then pick up the crate 
    that the previous one was sitting on top of, and place it on the one you just 
    sat down. This will clear the path and allow you to drive the forklift through.
    Keep an eye on the top left hand corner of the screen, by the way. This is a 
    gauge of how much fuel the forklift has left in it. When that percentage 
    reaches 0, then it is game over and you will have to restart this entire 
    forklift process all over again. Trust me, that is a huge pain in the ass and 
    you definitely do not want to do it.
    When you're done moving the crates around, drive towards the building that you 
    took people to when you rescued them. Then take a left, then a right. Mow 
    through the zombies, and keep driving towards the barricade that has a military
    vehicle leaned against it. When you get close, Goda will figure out which case 
    contains the tank rounds. It's the largest one that is right in the front. 
    Press X against it to pick it up with the forklift.
    Transport the tank rounds all the way back to the tank. Put them down in the 
    blue square next to the tank, and then Goda will automatically load the rounds 
    into the tank. Inside the tank, aim it at the barricade. Focus primarily on the
    part of the barricade that is glowing, as that is your target. Fire a few 
    rounds into it to destroy it. Remember, to reload the tank, you need to mash on
    the X button. Use R1 to fire, as normal.
    Goda will break through the barricade. The SDF will scramble to start fixing 
    it, but Goda humbles them when he reminds them that there are still survivors 
    stuck in the quarantine zone, earning the admiration of a young female SDF 
    officer. She tries to offer the serum to him, checking on his arm, but then 
    she realizes his arm isn't injured, but simply robotic.
    Walk down the street, continuing towards the Toshin Building. A director and a 
    cameraman will stop you. They have decided to use this zombie outbreak as an 
    easy way to make a cheap zombie movie without needing special effects or 
    actors! They ask if they can use you in their film after seeing your impressive
    showing in the quarantine zone. You can choose yes or no, depending on if you 
    are pursuing side missions.
    Continue to the pink objective marker to find the Toshin Building. Press X at 
    the door to enter. Inside, Goda will rough up the yakuza guard a bit, and is 
    then taken to his boss upstairs. Goda fails to persuade the boss that the 
    stories of the zombie outbreak in the quarantine zone is accurate. Looking at 
    the security monitor, however, they see the guard down stairs is dead, and the 
    person in the baseball cap that started the whole mess is riding the elevator 
    to their floor!
    The yakuza all taken positions behind a makeshift barricade, as does Goda. They
    train their weapons at the elevator door, but when it opens, no one is inside. 
    The baseball cap monster then falls from the ceiling and pounces from yakuza to
    yakuza, biting each one of them on the neck. Goda is unharmed, but fails to 
    even land a single shot on it, except to knock off the baseball cap. Goda 
    recognizes the monster as someone named "Hayashi". Hayashi only responds with 
    "Sweet death...sweet death..." before fleeing out of the window. The yakuza 
    begin turning into zombies...
    Run to a corner and put your back to it. You can use one of the many melee 
    weapons to knock them away from you. These zombies take a lot more ammo than 
    the regular ones, so be prepared for an intense fight. The yakuza boss takes 
    especially more ammunition to put down.
    When they're all dead, Goda receives a call from Nikaido. Nikaido asks Goda if 
    he wants to "help". Goda agrees to help and asks to meet up with Nikaido. 
    Nikaido tells him to meet him at a cabaret club called Asia. When the 
    conversation wraps up, walk over to the elevator doors and press X. Goda will 
    ride the elevator down and exit the Toshin Building. However, the streets 
    outside are mostly destroyed, and barricades now surround the little street, 
    having been made a quarantine zone while Goda was inside dealing with the 
    Go through the nearby alley as you make your way to the objective marker. A 
    Diptera will block your path, and then a Hermit will appear at the other end of
    the alley. Quickly duck away into the backlot. It's filled with zombies, but 
    kill them all quickly. The Diptera will follow you in here, so try to corner it
    and then kill it. The Hermit will try to roll into the backlot, but it will 
    fail miserably. Now if you don't have the Super Grip ability, I recommend 
    purchasing it as an upgrade for only three Soul Points. It makes killing the 
    Hermit a hell of a lot easier, at any rate. If you don't, you can just shoot 
    the Hermit until it dies. This will take a LOT of ammo, but it's your only 
    option if you don't have Super Grip.
    If you DO have Super Grip, simply grab a barrel and chuck it at the Hermit. 
    There are two or three barrels in the backlot, which is way more than enough to
    kill the thing. When it's dead, take out any straggling zombies that happened 
    to lurch their way into the alley, and then turn and continue towards the 
    objective marker. You'll find that the way is blocked by a giant pile of 
    rubble, but when's that ever stopped Goda before, eh?!
    Turn to the right and smash down the wooden barricade blocking the path. Kill 
    the zombies and then climb up the ramp of rubble to the roof. Kill the zombies 
    up here, then aim and kill the zombies on the surrounding rooftops that are 
    packing Molotov cocktails. Then go down the slope, kill the zombies, go up the 
    slope, and then go back down the next slope of rubble. A chubby woman in a 
    nightgown will be screaming for help. Evidently an old man is trapped behind 
    flaming rubble, and she asks Goda to help him. The woman retreats back into her
    home after Goda agrees.
    Backtrack towards the way you entered this area. New zombies will have spawned,
    so take them out as you move back across the slopes of rubble. A Fattie will 
    be around as well, plus a Meat Head, but there nothing you can't handle at this
    point in the game. As you murder your way through them, keep going until you 
    are back at the giant pile of rubble that you had to get past by breaking the 
    wooden barricade. Go down the path exactly across from where the barricade 
    was, and then go around the corner to find the old injured man. The fat chick 
    from earlier runs up, as this man is apparently her father. She decides to 
    stay in the quarantine zone at the bar she owns and hole up there with her dad,
    so that she can make sure it can stay in operating order for after the zombie 
    outbreak is over. In exchange for the help, she tells Goda a way to get out of 
    the quarantine zone.
    Backtrack the way you came, then keep following the objective marker. Kill any 
    zombies that get in your way, and smash through the two wooden barricades as 
    you move through the narrow alleys. Keep an eye out for healing items or ammo 
    lying on the ground as well. When you reach the next street, there will be 
    monsters to the left and to the right, as well as barricades. Goda decides that
    before he can look for the entrance the fat lady was talking about, he should 
    eradicate the undead in the area.
    If you have Heat Sniping full, there will immediately be an opportunity to 
    blast an exploding barrel to thin out the herd considerably. Otherwise, get 
    your back to the barricade ASAP as there are four Fatties and two Dipteras 
    along with the usual run-of-the-mill zombies walking around. When they're all 
    dead, move towards the designated alley.
    It's an extremely tight fit, but run through it. Smash the wooden fence you 
    come across, and then keep moving. There will be one or two zombies to kill 
    along the way, so take them out. Keep moving until you find a kid hiding on a 
    balcony. Speak with the kid, but he will refuse to come with you, as he has 
    been instructed to only trust the SDF. He does tell you the way out of the 
    quarantine zone, though.
    Keep moving through the alley until you find a set of stairs. Go up the stairs,
    and then duck into the room as shown on your map. A bunch of zombies will fall 
    through the ceiling. Kill them all. When they're all dead, approach the 
    cardboard box in the corner. Goda will find a foreigner hiding underneath it. 
    The foreigner will ask Goda to help his friend, and also tells Goda he can get 
    out of Little Asia and out of the quarantine zone through the kitchen area.
    Continue through the building and then when you reach another flight of stairs,
    Goda will see another man being attacked by zombies. Rush down the stairs and 
    bust through the wooden barricades that block your path. Move out to the lot 
    where he is and quickly dispatch of the zombies. The man will give you a more 
    detailed explanation of how to get out of the quarantine zone, but he declines 
    to accompany Goda outside, as he wants to stay and protect his home.
    Go through to the restaurant as instructed. The cook is being attacked by 
    zombies, but at least he is fighting back with a metal pole. Help him kill the 
    zombies. He will also decline to accompany Goda. Go up the stairs and continue 
    through the building. The pleas of yet ANOTHER victim will catch Goda's 
    Kill the zombies. Then head into the room and speak with the man. He reveals 
    he is a three time Muay Thai Champion. Impressive. He also gives you even 
    better instructions on how to get out! When the conversation is over, move 
    from pink objective to pink objective marker to get out of the building. Once 
    you get outside, a homeless man that evidently runs a food stand will point you
    to the exact way out of the quarantine zone, and even offer you free food!
    Outisde the quarantine zone, Hasegawa will send you an e-mail with unfortunate 
    news that now most of Kamurocho is now considered "the quarantine zone". Aww 
    bummer. Well, there's nothing that can be done about that for now, so start 
    making your way to the pink objective marker...which will lead you to the 
    cabaret club Asia that you're supposed to meet Nikaido at!
    However, if you examine the door to the club, you won't be allowed to get 
    inside. Speak to the suited man next to the door. He will say a bunch of 
    thugs with guns kicked him, the owner out. He gives you grenades before you go 
    inside. Inside, Goda finds Haruka tied to a stripper pole, and gagged with 
    tape. Nikaido appears, revealing he did this to gain revenge on the Tojo 
    clan for what they did five years prior in taking out the Omi Alliance, 
    specifically targeting "The Dragon" Kiryu. Goda refuses to help him. Nikaido 
    then has a zombified version of the chef Goda was learning how to cook from, 
    affectionately referred to as "Pops", stumble into the room.
    Nikaido and his men escape with Haruka as Goda faces Pops the zombie. Pops then
    mutates into a large-headed octopus-like monster. Time to put him out of his 
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Hold your ground on the stage. Now, the game likes to trick you at this point 
    to make you waste your ammo. Logically, you would shoot at Pop's face or at the
    end of his tentacles that are glowing red. Video game logic dictates this as 
    boss fight facts. However, that's not what you do at all. Just pick a side of 
    his body and shoot off three tentacles, by aiming at the tentacles themselves, 
    about in the middle. Whenever he lunges them at you, try to roll out of the 
    way, but it's nearly impossible to dodge Pop's attacks, meaning you just really
    need to get those tentacles off as fast as possible.
    Pops will then retreat into a hole in the ground. Stay away from the holes, and
    try to stick to the stage as much as possible. He has a bunch of attacks this 
    time, including shooting his tentacles out of the ground in a sequence towards 
    you, trying to smash you with the tentacles if you are too close to the hole, 
    and throwing rocks at you from inside the hole. Red markers on the screen will 
    let you know what direction he's coming from, which gives you a chance to dodge
    the oncoming attacks. Whenever you see his tentacles, SHOOT. He has multiple 
    bars of health, so keep laying into him as much as humanly possible.
    Pops will also pop out of one hole and then crawl across the floor to the 
    other. This is a fantastic window of opportunity to dump as much ammo into the 
    monster as you can. If you touch him, he will do damage, though, so try to 
    stay far away from him as you do this.
    When his health gets done to zero, he won't die. Pops will just keep crawling 
    back and forth from hole to hole until you build up your Heat Snipe gauge. When
    you have that gauge filled, wait for Pops to jump in the air like he does 
    before he starts crawling, and then press Triangle to initiate the Heat Snipe. 
    Press the right button as it pops on the screen to send a flaming bullet right 
    into Pop's face.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Pops will fall onto the stage and begin to regenerate. Goda thinks back to his 
    days as an apprentice to Pops. Pops once taught him the best and gentle way to 
    kill an octopus...by stabbing it right between its eyes, in its vitals. Goda 
    grabs the broken stripper pole off the ground and lunges in between the 
    entanglement of Pops's tentacles...driving the pole right between the eyes, and
    killing his former master.
    Outside the club, Goda finds that this section of Kamurocho has been taken over
    by the undead as well. People flee in the streets, as chaos erupts all around. 
    Before heading to the barricade to see what all the fuss is about, I HIGHLY 
    recommend heading to the south of town to the truck to replenish the ammo you 
    used up against Pops, as well as to buy healing items.
    When you feel like you're prepared, head to the barricade to see what's going 
    on. The barricade begins to shake, and suddenly a trio of Prototype monsters 
    knock it down, releasing the undead into the streets.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Arahabki Prototype A/Arahabaki Prototype B/Onraki Prototype Beta...............
    The trio of Prototypes are two of the Licker-like creatures from before, and 
    they both have the power to turn invisible. The third monster is an Onraki, 
    which is the big armored gorilla-like monster from before, but this is a "Beta"
    version of it, emaning that it is, luckily, considerably weaker than the one 
    encountered by Majima, which he needed a tank to defeat.
    Before doing anything, take out all the zombies in the area just to get them 
    out of the way. They are a pain in the ass if you don't, and can make the fight
    even more difficult. Once they have been killed, it's time to focus your 
    attention on the bosses.
    The Arahabaki Prototypes are the same as before. When they turn invisible, 
    look for the hazy area of air, then fire at it to deal damage and make them 
    turn visible again. You have to manually aim to damage them. But you should 
    just try to avoid them for now. They will rarely get close enough to attack 
    you anyway, and the real threat, damage-wise, is the Onraki. It can smash the 
    ground and throw boulders at you.
    Run as far away as you can from the monsters, but not so far that you go out of
    range. Aim at the Onraki and don't let up on the trigger until the clip is dry.
    Then repeat the process, unloading all you can at the Onraki's armor until it 
    finally falls off. When this happens, aim at the Onraki and shoot it a few 
    more times and it will die very quickly.
    With that out of the day, turn your attention to the Arahabaki monsters. Run 
    away from them, aim at their "invisible" bodies, and then repeat the process 
    until they are both dead. It helps to focus on one at a time. When they're 
    visible, it's easier to hit them since you don't have to manually aim. All in 
    all, this fight isn't too tough thanks to the plentiful supply of ammunition 
    lying around, and as long as you purchased healing items like I suggested, you 
    will be absolutely fine.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Arahabki Prototype A/Arahabaki Prototype B/Onraki Prototype Beta...............
    With the monsters defeated, Goda surveys the scene of destruction. There are 
    people being eaten by zombies, dead bodies scattered about, and buildings all 
    over the place destroyed or on fire. He curses Nikaido's name...meanwhile, 
    Nikaido is in another building, forcing Haruka to witness the madness. He makes
    the phone call to Kiryu that was seen at the beginning of the game, and the 
    red-headed doctor smiles evily at Haruka.
    Kiryu arrives at the barricade of Kamurocho the following morning. He finds 
    that the military has completely quarantined the city. News reporters 
    desperately attempt to get inside, but are shunned by the military. Kiryu gives
    the order and his men drive semi trucks straight into the barricade, opening it
    just enough for him to get inside. The military tries to stop him, but Kiryu 
    scares him off.
    Inside the quarantine zone of Kamurocho, Kiryu punches a zombie straight in the
    face. That's your cue for a fist fight with a mob of zombies! Mash on the 
    Square button to deal combos on the zombies. Press X to dodge when they lunge 
    at you, and then keep beating them to death. After a few are killed, Kiryu 
    takes a look around and realizes that Haruka really wasn't kidding when she 
    said the city is dying.
    He then reminisces about when he received the invite to attend the grand 
    opening of Kamurocho Hills mall. Knowing he can't leave the orphanage, he let 
    Haruka go instead. He comes back to the present. You can now mix Triangle in 
    with your combos to deliver even more devastating attacks. Kiryu is surprised 
    as the zombies he just defeated get back up. Beat them up and knock them back 
    down again. However, they will get up AGAIN. The woman SDF officer that met 
    with Goda saves Kiryu with a few shots and they escape into a nearby subway 
    The woman introduces herself as Asagi. She tries to give Kiryu a gun, but he 
    refuses. He then tells her he's looking for a girl, and she suggests going to 
    Kamurocho Hills to see if she's among the survivors that are holed up there 
    that Majima saved earlier. Before they can continue their conversation, they 
    hear gunshots coming from the parking garage below. They rush to investigate.
    In the garage, grab the healing item off the floor. Then stick to the north 
    part of the garage, and just run straight ahead. You will hear gunshots, that 
    means you are getting closer. You will see none other than Nagahama, bitten on 
    his arm badly, fending off the undead as they surround him. Asagi kills the 
    zombies and saves Nagahama. Nagahama is amazed to see Kiryu, who he looked up 
    to and even came to Kamurocho for, to follow in his footsteps.
    Nagahama collapses and begins to turn into a zombie. Asagi wants to shoot him, 
    but Kiryu doesn't let her. He decides to kill Nagahama himself, hand-to-hand 
    style. Just keep beating the hell out of him. He'll likely never even get an 
    attack on you. Grab the healing item off the ground before beating him, though.
    He'll keep getting back up with a recharged health bar, but just keep laying 
    into him with punches and kicks.
    Nagahama still keeps getting back up. Asagi then yells at Kiryu to let her put 
    Nagahama out of his misery. Kiryu then stops her, takes her gun, and kills 
    Nagahama himself. They then exit the parking garage through the nearby door.
    Asagi blocks off the paths in the parking garage and the subway system. 
    Meanwhile, Hasegawa approaches Kiryu. She gives him the same offer given to 
    everybody else, but she ridicules him for his reluctance to kill the zombies. 
    They have a short argument, but then Hasegawa leaves and sends an e-mail. 
    It seems that a very small section of Kamurocho has managed to stay away from 
    the zombie threat. A very small section.
    The truck is nearby, so enter and buy weapons. I recommend buying a shotgun and
    the gatling gun if you have the money. Buy plenty of ammunition for all your 
    weapons, and then make sure to take any of the items left over from the other 
    characters by using the door in the back of the truck. Transfer over healing 
    items and ammo, and any left-over weapons that there may be. When you are 
    satisfied with your loadout, exit the truck.
    Speak with Asagi to start heading to Kamurocho Hills. Back inside the 
    quarantine zone, you will have to deal with a Monkey Boy and a Hermit, as well 
    as a bunch of zombies. Kill them all as you push through the streets. Next you 
    will have to fight even more zombies and an Aggro. Kill them, then continue 
    through the street more. A Fattie and more zombies, plus a Diptera will be 
    there to greet you. Kill them, and then keep going until you find the Cry 
    Baby. Kill that as well, and all the zombies around it, and keep pushing 
    forward. Asagi will point out a path to take to bypass the nearby barricade 
    blocking the way to Kamurocho Hills.
    Fight your way through the building as Asagi suggests. Back on the streets, 
    you will have a ton of opposition. A Diptera, two Monkey Boys, a Meat Head, a 
    few Fatties, an Aggro, a Hermit, and a Cry Baby, plus more zombies than ever 
    before are all there to greet you. Fight your way through the streets, killing 
    everything that gets in your way. If Asagi becomes incapacitated and you don't 
    have any items to bring her back, don't sweat it, by the way; and if this is 
    the case, then IGNORE the Aggro and save the ammo.
    When you near the shutters leading to Kamurocho Hills, there will be a 
    Stockpile there. Kill everything, and then loot the Stockpile to replenish your
    supplies. Then walk over to the hole in the gate and press X to enter. It 
    seems the people that were hiding in the supermarket have turned into zombies, 
    Kill the zombies outside. When you near the doors, you will automatically 
    enter the building. Fight your way deeper into the building. Replenish your 
    supplies at the stockpile, then fight your way to the second floor. There will 
    be a Monkey Boy as you go, as well as an Aggro, but just keep pushing through 
    the undead masses.
    When you reach the supermarket, it appears that the human survivors actually 
    abandoned it, and weren't turned into zombies. Hayashi, the fork-tongued 
    zombie that started the mess, appears. Kiryu recognizes him as an old foe. 
    SDF soldiers that have been zombified follow Hayashi into the supermarket. 
    Asagi is reluctant to fight them, but Kiryu convinces her to set her emotions 
    aside for the time being.
    The SDF zombies are a little more agile than your typical zombies. They can 
    perform rolls to dodge, and some of them have Molotov cocktails. Kill them 
    all. When they're dead, a Cry Baby and a Monkey Boy will appear at the 
    supermarket entrance. The Cry Baby will summon more of her undead brethren to 
    attack Kiryu and Asagi.
    Except this Cry Baby summons SDF zombies. So, focus your attention on her to 
    begin with. When she's dead, then you can start killing the other zombies and 
    the Monkey Boy.
    When the fighting is done with, Asagi collapses to the floor and sobs amongst 
    her fallen comrades. Kiryu then notices Majima leaning against a shelf. He nods
    to Kiryu.
    Kiryu and Majima talk on the balcony while Asagi mourns her dead friends. 
    Majima reveals that it was likely Tetsu Nikaido that kidnapped Haruka, since he
    is the one that let the zombie outbreak loose in the city. Kiryu then realizes 
    that his invite to Kamurocho Hills was probably a set-up as well, all a plan to
    get at him. Asagi joins Kiryu and Majima, having said her goodbyes. Majima 
    reveals that the survivors that were once there have retreated to Purgatory, 
    and he decides to show Kiryu and Asagi how to get there.
    Knowing that the Florist will likely be able to tell them where Haruka is, the 
    three set out back into the mall. This time you will have two partners, Asagi 
    and Majima. Majima has only one medical kit, while Asagi still has the usual 
    two. Mow down the SDF zombies on the second floor. When you reach the 
    escalator, Majima will notice that there are a ton of zombies left below on the
    first floor. He runs down there to distract them, and instruct Kiryu to man the
    nearby mounted sniper rifle to lend cover.
    Rush to the rifle. Shoot any zombies that latch onto Majima, and fire about 
    five shots into the face of the Meat Head to kill it. Then help Majima kill off
    the remaining zombies. When they're all gone, Asagi suggests to go downstairs 
    and regroup with Majima.
    You will automatically be taken down stairs. Loot the Stockpile, then move 
    towards the entrance. Kill the zombies, including the Monkey Boy, and fight 
    your way to the front doors. Press X at the front doors to head outside, where 
    Majima says there is a manhole that can be used to reach Purgatory. Outside is 
    CRAWLING with enemies, though, so the manhole will have to wait.
    Keep an eye on the health of your partners' as you battle this army of the 
    undead. There are zombies as far as the eye can see, as well as a Meat Head, 
    Fatties, Monkey Boys, and a Hermit. I recommend killing the Hermit first, then 
    focus on the Meat Head. Then the Fatties, then the Monkey Boys, and then 
    finally pick off the remaining zombies, many of which will be the super-powered
    SDF variety.
    When all the enemies are killed, Majima will show Asagi and Kiryu the manhole. 
    Majima decides not to go to Purgatory with them, and shows them the zombie 
    bite he received earlier. They notice that his eyes are becoming red, and the 
    zombie transformation process may be taking place. Kiryu promises to kill 
    Majima if he turns full-zombie, and then he and Asagi disappear into the 
    You remember this underground subway area, right? Well, loot the Stockpile as 
    soon as you can, and then start pushing through. Zombies will literally fall 
    from the skies as you move through the tunnel. Kill every last one of them, and
    even more will fall. There will be two Aggros down here as well as a Monkey 
    Boy, but you have no choice but to just keep killing them all and pushing 
    Once you reach the barricade and ladders leading into Purgatory, you will 
    discover that a bunch of undead enemies are blocking the path just as before. 
    Grab the flamethrower from the ground and start mowing through the large crowd 
    of enemies. The flamethrower will help you burn up the barrels as well to kill 
    a bunch at a time. Keep killing the enemies, which will include an Aggro, two 
    Fatties, and two Monkey Boys, until they have all been killed.
    When they're dead, Kiryu and Asagi will enter Purgatory. Two yakuza men will 
    greet them, realize who Kiryu is, and freak out, while Asagi just looks on, 
    confused. The little girl that befriended Majima watches Kiryu with a worried 
    look. Kiryu and Asagi then decide to start gathering information about Haruka 
    and if the other supermarket survivors made it to Purgatory.
    Move towards the back of Purgatory to where Kage the Florist is located. 
    Akiyama will meet up with you. Asagi leaves, having deduced that there is 
    yakuza business going on and she is not welcome. Akiyama admires her as she 
    walks away, but then tells Kiryu how to get to the Florist. When you regain 
    control of Kiryu, continue moving towards the back of Purgatory, and then press
    X against the stairs to enter the Florist's room.
    Mysteries are then revealed! The Florist shows photo and video of Nikaido and 
    the red-headed doctor from earlier. He reveals that it is very unlikely that 
    the Omi Alliance had anything to do with the zombie outbreak, as they do not 
    benefit from scorched Earth tactics. He also reveals that the red-headed 
    IS A MAN! I know, right?! The dude looks totally like a woman. Dude looks like 
    a lady, so to speak. He reveals that this person is a major player in the 
    black market, and is known as DD. DD found a new bacteria in Africa, and then 
    quickly went to work weaponizing it. Nikaido caught wind of this operation, 
    and quickly got on board to exact revenge against the Tojo yakuza clan, and 
    Suddenly, the security monitors pick up zombies breaking into Purgatory! Kage 
    asks Akiyama and Kiryu to hold them off while he evacuates the children and 
    gets everyone else ready to fight. Outside the Florist's office, Akiyama will 
    give you a couple of healing items. He then rushes to the manhole that you need
    to enter to stave off the zombies, who are coming through the sewers below.
    Speak with Akiyama to head into the sewer. You have to last three minutes in 
    the sewer. Kill the Fattie and the Monkey Boy and all the zombies. When the 
    timer hits the 2:00 mark, a Hermit and another Monkey Boy will join the fight. 
    Keep fighting off the zombies and kill the Hermit and Monkey Boy. At the 1:00 
    mark, a Fattie and a Meat Head will show up. Kill them as well. Use Heat Snipe 
    Tandem Blasts as much as possible to thin out the herd, and make sure Akiyama 
    doesn't become incapacitated.
    When the timer runs out, Asagi will join the fight. She then gives out the 
    order to you and Akiyama that the rest of the zombies in the sewers below 
    Purgatory need to be completely abolished! Push through the sewer and kill all 
    the enemies. There will be an incredible amount, but at least you have Asagi 
    and Akiyama to help you, and they both have two medical kits each, so you don't
    even really need to babysit them all that much. Keep killing the enemies and 
    pushing through the sewer. There will be mutant zombies as well, such as 
    Monkey Boys, Aggros, Fatties, Cry Babies, and Meat Heads, but they should not 
    be too much of a problem.
    Ignore the Stockpile you walk by at first. Kill all the enemies until the 
    intense music stops and there's no one left. Then return to the Stockpile and 
    take all the ammo from it. Then move to the nearby stairs and climb the ladder 
    there. Outside, Akiyama makes sure that the coast is clear. As Kiryu, Asagi, 
    and Akiyama pile out of the manhole, however, a winged Prototype monster 
    swoops down and attacks!
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Basan Prototype................................................................
    This boss fight is a giant pain in the ass, let me tell you. This giant, meaty 
    gargoyle devil thing is fast, it's powerful, and it has about a hundred zombie 
    minions roaming the streets ready to take a chunk of your neck if you're 
    unlucky enough. When you start the fight, the thing will stay close to the 
    ground, so use the gatling gun if you bought it, or whatever is your most 
    powerful weapon that has a little bit of range.
    You should be able to take away its first piece of health doing this. It will 
    then roost on top of a nearby building. Keep shooting it. It will scream and 
    call upon the zombies. They will shuffle into view and completely overtake the 
    streets. Ugh, damn. Run across the street and loot the Stockpile on the 
    sidewalk. Take the sniper rifle from there (if you don't already have one), 
    and then turn and run west, towards the other stockpile.
    Chill out here. Akiyama and Asagi do a good job of holding back the zombies if 
    you keep them healed, and if they get incapacitated, the stockpiles have items 
    that will heal them up. From this position, use a machinegun or a sniper rifle 
    to shoot the Basan Prototype as much as you can. You will undoubtedly have to 
    take out a few zombies if they get too close, but otherwise focus all of your 
    attention on the monster, and be sure to heal whenever necessary.
    The Basan itself is not very dangerous when it's just flying around, but it 
    will make your auto-aim go bonkers and it's hard as hell to hit. As for its 
    attacks, it will hover in the air and spit at you from afar, which leaves its 
    red thing on its chest wide open and susceptible to fire. It will try to 
    tackle you, and it will also swoop in above and blow gusts of wind which deal a
    lot of damage and knock you off your feet as well.
    Whenever it roosts, do NOT let up shooting it. When it roosts, it regenerates 
    its health, making this fight even harder. If you don't let up shooting the 
    monster, you will be able to stop its regeneration process and hurt it even 
    more as well. Whenever it flies completely out of view, Asagi will announce 
    that it "flew up!" Turn your attention to the rooftops to shoot it more, or it 
    will be up by the barricade that you have your back to. This is another great 
    time to attack it without having to worry too much.
    Finally, it will die.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Arahabki Prototype A/Arahabaki Prototype B/Onraki Prototype Beta...............
    Daigo will approach the group as Akiyama returns to Purgatory to let Kage the 
    Florist know that the coast is clear. Daigo tells Kiryu of a weapons dealer 
    that is rumored to have a VERY powerful weapon. Daigo offers to accompany Kiryu
    to the dealer, but Kiryu declines, telling Daigo to return to Purgatory to help
    protect the survivors there.
    Asagi finds a working military vehicle that they can take to the weaopns 
    dealer. Kiryu mans the turret while Asagi drives. This section can be really, 
    really annoying. Basically, you need to kill the zombies around the tank as it 
    speeds through the streets. Every time that the tank hits a zombie, the tank 
    will take damage. You also need to blow up the barrels along the street before 
    the tank runs them over and continues to take even more damage.
    Eventually, an Onraki Prototype will come attack. Whenever it throws rocks or 
    a barrel, shoot it out of the air. Fire in bursts (so as the machinegun doesn't
    overheat) and also kill the zombies packing Molotov cocktails that randomly 
    show up to the left and right of the Onraki. Fire directly at it until its 
    armor is gone, then fire at its red orb on its chest.
    The Onraki will get very close to the tank and raise up its arms to attack. Aim
    the turret at its face, and if you shoot it enough, it will stop the attack. 
    The timer that appears on the screen is your cue when this fight ends, by the 
    way; even if you manage to lower the Onraki's health to the bare minimum, you 
    can not kill it.
    When the timer runs out, Asagi will resume speeding through the streets with 
    the tank. Continue mowing down zombies and blowing up barrels. Eventually, 
    another Onraki will charge. Fire at it as it charges. At this juncture, it is 
    impossible to avoid taking damage, so you just have to grit your teeth and 
    bare it. By the end of the segment, you will be lucky if the tank has a quarter
    of its health left.
    You now have to kill this Onraki, while also dealing with the Molotov-throwing 
    zombies hanging around, with barely any health to boot. Hold your ground and 
    blast away the enemies. Be sure to shoot rocks and barrels out of its hand, and
    fire at its face whenever it raises its arms up to attack to stop its attack 
    animation. When it is defeated, this on-rails shooting segment will come to a 
    Kiryu and Asagi will reach the prosthetics shop that is the front for the 
    weapon maker's shop. Kiryu and Asagi will enter, but what they find is Ryuji 
    In the gunsmith's shop, Kiryu and Goda exlpain to Asagi their history. Kiryu 
    was the one to take Goda's arm in a fight years prior. Goda explains that after
    he was exiled from the Omi Alliance, he had any hitmen that tried to kill him. 
    He found the Gunsmith, and the Gunsmith created a robotic arm for him that 
    doubled as a gatling gun. Goda and Kiryu discuss how they both got out of the 
    yakuza crime business, yet they have just become entangled in a larger mess.
    Kage the Florist rings the shop. He gives the news that they have figured out 
    where Nikaido is staying. He has holed himself up at the penthouse suite in 
    the Millennium Tower, with DD and Haruka there as well. The Gunsmith asks 
    Kiryu to wait for him to create a very powerful weapon for him to help in the 
    Meanwhile, Majima is roaming the streets of Kamurocho, drunk, and still 
    drinking. He becomes frustrated by the fact that he hasn't turned into a zombie
    yet. He eyes a sauna, and decides he might as well try sweating out all the 
    zombie poison.
    Back at the shop, the Gunsmith creates for Kiryu the XK.50 Anti-Material Rifle,
    which is a gargantuan and powerful sniper rifle. Kiryu and Goda then leave the 
    shop, with Asagi instructed to stay behind. On the streets, I recommend taking 
    a trip to the nearby truck to replenish your ammo and healing items if the 
    need arises. The inclusion of the new gun messes with the guns in your 
    inventory as well, so you may want to switch some things out. When you are done
    messing with your inventory and equipment, save in the truck and then head 
    back outside.
    When you're ready to head out, speak with Goda. Inside the quarantine zone, all
    hell breaks loose. You have to slaughter your way through mobs and mobs and 
    mobs of zombies. Kill them all. As you fight through the streets, you will 
    come across multiple Monkey Boys and a Diptera. Kill them all, and continue 
    through the streets. As you get close to the ajar barricade that leads to the 
    Millennium Tower area, you will have to deal with not one, but TWO Cry Babies 
    that will constantly make new zombies show up. Deal with them as quickly as 
    possible, then murder all the zombies before continuing through the barricade.
    Through the barricade, move towards the Tower. There will be no opposition...
    until you reach the steps leading to the Tower. Kiryu and Goda turn around to 
    reveal two Meat Heads, two Monkey Boys, and two Dipteras right behind them. 
    They decide they have to kill them, otherwise they will be followed and then 
    compromised trying to complete their mission.
    I highly recommend using your new rifle to pick off the big mutants. It can 
    kill them in just a few shots, even the Dipteras and Meat Heads. Then it's just
    a matter of wiping the floor with the zombies. Before killing every enemy, 
    though, be sure to raid the Stockpile outside for more ammo and healing items.
    Once they're all dead, Kiryu and Goda then return their attention to the 
    Millennium Tower and enter it. Right off the bat, there will be a bunch of 
    zombies in the way as well as THREE freaking Aggros. Use your new rifle to kill
    them as quickly as possible, because dealing with three Aggros at once in such 
    a tight space with so many zombies around is an incredible headache. When all 
    the enemies on this floor are dead, move to the top of the escalator to 
    descend to the next floor.
    On this floor, the opposition is much less heavy (except for the Fatties--weak 
    zing!). Wipe out the enemies. When they're all dead, Kiryu and Goda make their 
    way to the elevators. They ride it up a few floors, but a monster jumps on the 
    top of it. Goda and Kiryu open fire at the ceiling, killing whatever it was, 
    but the elevator is no longer usable, so they have to exit on the current 
    floor, unfortunately.
    And the current floor is crawling with enemies. But you should have expected 
    that. Kill everything, basically. There will be Monkey Boys, Aggros, Fatties...
    everything but the kitchen sink will be thrown at you. Speaking of thrown, many
    zombies on this floor have Molotov cocktails. It's just a slaughterhouse from 
    this floor to the staircase, with the only things you need to keep in mind is 
    to kill everything, grab the healing item and ammo off the ground when you 
    reach the bar, and then break down the door in the bar continue when you reach 
    it. Don't worry, it's glowing.
    When you reach the staircase, go up the stairs. Goda finds the fire door 
    controls, and he decides to close it to keep the enemies from following you 
    guys to the penthouse. Kiryu has to stand watch while he does this. Stand near 
    the door and blast at the zombies as the gate closes. Make sure you're on the 
    right side of the gate, by the way, the side away from the stairs! Anyway, just
    keep shooting them until the gate closes far enough that they can't get to you 
    or Goda.
    Then continue into the next room. Kill the zombies around the large gun in the 
    middle, and then take control of it. You have to wait for the blue bar on the 
    bottom of the screen to get at least a quarter full before the weapon becomes 
    effective, but once it does, let 'er rip! Use it to kill the hoards of zombies.
    It's handy because you won't take any damage while in the gun, and you will 
    conserve your own ammunition. The gun itself can break, but it is unlikely that
    it will before you are able to wipe out all the enemies.
    When they're all dead, continue through the building. Kiryu will see Majima's 
    office in the building, and decides that it would be advantageous to loot it. 
    Run over and enter Majima's office. You will find a few Tojo yakuza that have 
    hold up inside. They tell you that a monster is on the event floor that you 
    have to go through to reach the penthouse, and that they sent a whole gang of 
    guys up there that were heavily armed, yet it killed all of them.
    Furthermore, the key needed to reach the penthouse at all was in the hands of 
    someone that turned into a zombie. The spare key is in a safe in Majima's 
    office, but the combination to that safe is written in a notebook on the floor 
    above. Jeeze. There is a healing item and ammunition in Majima's office, 
    though, so grab that. Then backtrack out of the room and follow the pink 
    objective marker.
    You will come across a room filled with a Diptera and plenty of zombies. Kill 
    everything, then continue to the next staircase. Climb it and then make your 
    way to the storage room that Majima retrieved his shotgun ammo from way back 
    in Part II. Loot the Stockpile in here. Then move to the back room where you 
    will find Nishida's notebook, the one that has the safe combination written 
    Grab it and then backtrack back to the previous floor. There will be one or 
    two zombies along the way to kill. Return to Majima's office. Speak with the 
    yakuza people in the corner. This will take you to the safe. If you leaf 
    through the notebook, you will find that Nishida eventually set the safe 
    combination to 4649. However, Majima kicked it and messed up the digits, 
    making each one decrease by one. So the safe combination is 3538.
    Input this number to open the safe and get the key. You will also get two VERY 
    powerful healing items, so be sure to snag them. The items that were here on 
    the floor earlier will respawn as well, so you can get them again if you have 
    room in your inventory. At any rate, leave Majima's office and then begin 
    backtracking to the floor that you were just on, the one with the storage room.
    When you move down the elevator hallway, beware, as all of the elevators will 
    open at once and a bunch of zombies will swarm into the hallway. Kill them all.
    The room that had a Diptera and zombies in it before will have more zombies in 
    it, so kill them, too. When you finally reach the Event Room, approach it and 
    press X to get a checkpoint and get inside it.
    Hayashi is the monster that the yakuza dudes were talking about!
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Hiroshi Hayashi................................................................
    Pull out your super-powered sniper rifle! Don't manually aim at him, just point
    Kiryu in Hayashi's general direction and then press fire to auto-aim and shoot 
    at him. He will dodge a lot of your attacks as he is very fast, but you will 
    land quite a few shots, as well. His only real attack at this point is to run 
    and knock you guys down, but just keep firing at him and do your best to roll 
    out of the way when he tries to attack as well.
    He will then make his way to a belt with a bunch of grenades attached, and he 
    will start throwing grenades at you. Keep firing at him. The sprinklers will 
    then turn on as the flames in the room build. With the grenade belt around his 
    waist, Hayashi will begin running around the room, pausing occasionally to 
    throw a grenade or climb the wall.
    Keep firing at him as you have been. If you manage to shoot him just as he is 
    about to throw a grenade, you will cause an explosion that will deal 
    considerable damage to him. Hayashi may try to climb along the ceiling like it 
    is a monkey bar, and when he does this, blast him quickly, then aim at his red 
    orb to deal massive damage. Hayashi will pounce on Goda repeatedly throughout 
    this part of the fight, too, so be sure to shoot him off of Goda whenever he 
    does this. Also keep an eye on Goda's health, and be sure to instruct him to 
    use a medical kit whenever his health starts running low.
    When enough damage has been done tO Hayashi, he will pounce on Goda and rip off
    his gatling gun arm! Damn! Hayashi will then move around the room and fire the 
    gatling gun. When he does his spread-attack, the gun is practically useless as 
    a weapon. But when he directly aims it at you or Goda, it will deal a lot of 
    damage and prevent you from dodging or reloading or shooting back. If Goda's 
    health gets low, heal him up, and if your health gets to a quarter, be sure to 
    heal yourself.
    Otherwise, just keep firing at him. Goda's useless now without his arm, so it's
    just you. When Hayashi's health is depleted, he will fall to the ground.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Hiroshi Hayashi................................................................
    As he dies, Hayashi regains a bit of his humanity as he recognizes Kiryu. He 
    thinks back to before he was turned into a monster. He had been following 
    Nikaido and DD, suspicious of their partnership. He was then shot in the 
    stomach by Nikaido and injected with the "Thanatos" virus by DD, who whispered 
    to him, "Sweet death..." And Hayashi whispers the same words as he dies on the 
    Well...do what the game says! If you plan on playing this save again, anyway. 
    Zombies will flood the Event Room. Kill them all.
    Then fight your way through the halls and out of the Event Room, towards the 
    pink objective marker. Go up the stairs, and then Goda will see another fire 
    door to close. use the same strategy as before. Just stand your ground and kill
    the zombies until the door closes and they are unable to pursue the two of you 
    any longer.
    The penthouse is just ahead! As you move through the hallway, an alarm begins 
    to blare. Evidently using that fire door caused an alarm to ring out through 
    the building, which will aggravate the zombies and also tip off Nikaido that 
    the two of you are storming the tower.
    Push through the hall and kill the waves of zombies. Go through the wedding 
    chapel, and keep killing the zombies. Go through the next hallway, and kill 
    everything that moves. You will reach a small barricade eventually that you can
    climb over. There will be an Aggro and two Monkey Boys on the other side of it 
    as well as multiple zombies. Stay on the side away from them and kill them from
    your position. They won't even start moving until you climb over the barricade.
    Once they're all dead, keep pushing through the building.
    Goda and Kiryu will come across the machine that's making the alarm buzz. Bash 
    it until it is destroyed. Then go into the next room and kill all the zombies 
    in it, as well as the Fatties and the Meat Head. When they're all dead, 
    continue through the building until you reach a Stockpile. Loot it, and then 
    approach the stairs. The stairs lead up to the penthouse. Let this be the...
    final battle!
    Upstairs, Nikaido cuts Haruka loose, and she begins walking towards Goda and 
    Kiryu. Nikaido is disappointed in Goda for becoming "weak". As Haruka nears 
    Kiryu and Goda, they realize it's a trap. Three Arahabaki Prototypes in their 
    final form attack! One of them jumps from the ceiling at Haruka. Goda opens 
    fire on it and Kiryu runs to protect her. The thing lands above them, and Kiryu
    fires repeatedly directly through its stomach. He then lifts the beast above 
    his head and throws it across the room!
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Ginro and Kinro are two left over Arahabki that have been fully evolved. One of
    them spits oil and is black and the other spits fire and is a yellowish orange 
    color. They are both very deadly, and pretty damn cool, in all honesty. You 
    have to fight both of them at the same time, so this battle can be kind of 
    overwhelming if you don't have a lot of healing items left over.
    The gist of this fight is to run around in a circle, then turn and fire as much
    as you can from the Anti-Material Rifle at them. Then just keep running away 
    and doing this. They have a variety of attacks. They will try to tackle you, 
    which deals a ton of damage, and they will try to pounce. If they pounce on 
    Goda, be sure to fire at them to make them get off.
    Goda is especially vulnerable in this fight. He managed to get his arm back 
    from Hayashi, so he can actually be helpful, damage-wise, during this battle. 
    So, it's a good idea to try to keep him alive as long as possible. However, he 
    does have the tendency to run up close and try to attack them, which leaves him
    open to their claw attack, which also deals a devastating amount of damage.
    Ginro and Kinro each have their own unique moves as well. Ginro will spit oil 
    on the ground, and if you step on it, you will slip and be left vulnerable to 
    other attacks, plus take damage. Kinro breathes fire, which has predictable 
    results if you are caught in the flames. Just run around the room away from 
    them, pause, and blast them.
    There is a chance for Heat Sniping when they try to pounce on someone. The 
    window of opportunity is very slim, but if you nail it, you can run over and 
    shoot their red orb head-on, as long as the other one is not too close to 
    prevent you from doing so. When both of their health bars are depleted, they 
    will both be dead.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    After the fight, Nikaido accepts his fate of death. But suddenly, DD shoots 
    two doses of the Thanatos virus at him, one in the body and one directly in 
    the head. Furthermore, they are advanced, evolved strains of the Thanatos made 
    possible thanks to Nikaido's involvement with DD. DD reveals that while you are
    becoming zombified or dying from Thanatos, you feel incredibly good, as the 
    virus releases the endorphine chemicals in the brain at a fast rate, creating a
    sensation similar to the one created by morphine.
    Nikaido then completes his transformation and begins to attack as he succumbs 
    to the "sweet death"...
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Tetsuo Nikaido.................................................................
    Nikaido will start the battle acting like an Asian version of Wesker. He will 
    speed around the room quickly, and he has the tendency to sneak up behind you 
    and try to uppercut you. Just shoot him with the super rifle and stay away from
    him. If you get too close, he wil grab you by the throat. He will also glow red
    and fire beams from his hands, so be sure to dodge them.
    After his first bar of health is gone, Nikaido will burst and his blood will 
    splatter all over the room. From the blood puddles emerge grotesque, blood 
    monsters. Kill them when they become a problem, but listen closely and you will
    hear a heartbeat. Floating above one of the blood puddles will be the heart of 
    Nikaido. Take aim from afar and blast it with the rifle to make Nikaido 
    By the way, health and ammo will have spawned at the end of the room, just in 
    case you need it. Nikaido will return to his super-speed ways, but he will now 
    be a more deadly martial artist. Use the same strategy as before, just be very 
    careful to dodge his attacks, as he will deal a deadly combo that can 
    practically kill you with one go. Goda can seriously get his ass handed to him 
    by Nikaido as well, so keep an eye on Goda's health.
    When Nikaido's health is gone...well...
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Tetsuo Nikaido.................................................................
    HE MORPHS INTO A GIANT MONSTER! DD laughs as Nikaido morphs into the Oikazuchi 
    Omega. His massive frame bursts through the roof and the floor. Goda is trapped
    under rubble, but he demands Kiryu finish the job. Kiryu climbs through the 
    hole in the roof to face off against the hulking beast.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Oikazuchi Omega................................................................
    Aww shucky ducky quack quack. Fire directly at his rib cage on the center of 
    its body, where its red orb is. This will hurt it. Press X to avoid its arms as
    it swings and tries to grab you. MAKE SURE YOUR HEALTH IS AT LEAST AT HALF 
    throughout this entire fight, by the way. And keep shooting it. Eventually, it 
    will succeed in grabbing Kiryu.
    When it does this, you will have to button mash on the button that the game 
    tells you to. When the button mashing is done, Kiryu will manage to get his gun
    out and aim it at the monster. A very quick QTE will pop up, and you will have 
    to press the button fast. Kiryu will then fire directly into one of the eyes of
    the monster, rendering it half-blind.
    It will drop Kiryu and become incredbily more aggressive. You will barely have 
    a chance to reload, as it will constantly be smashing on the roof with its 
    massive fists. You just have to pull through. Keep firing at its ribcage, and 
    be sure to be at half-health or more at all times. When enough damage is dealt,
    another event will occur.
    Asagi will fly over head in an SDF helicopter and drop a supply crate at your 
    feet. Kiryu opens it and discovers grenades. Asagi directs Kiryu to throw the 
    grenades into the mouth of the beast. Aim with L2 and then press R1 to chuck a 
    grenade into its open mouth. The resulting explosion will hurt the monster 
    Dodge its pounding attack by moving all the way to the left, then rolling to 
    the right as it smashes on the ground. It will roar again. That's your cue to 
    throw another grenade into its mouth. Then dodge its attack in the same manner.
    Then throw another grenade in its mouth. You do have infinite grenades, but you
    will want to be careful because if you miss his mouth, the explosion will knock
    you on your ass and he will have another opportunity to attack you.
    When you've done this three times, his ribcage will blow open, revealing the 
    red orb in his gut. The monster will swipe at Asagi's helicopter, causing it to
    catch on fire, but not before Asagi can drop another supply crate. This time 
    the crate has a missile launcher with anti-tank missiles inside. Hot damn.
    Aim the missile launcher directly at the mosnter's gut. Right when the missile 
    is about to hit, the beast's ribcage will close. Kiryu will then pull out his 
    handgun. You have to tap the button that pops up on the screen to shoot the 
    missile. The resulting explosion completely destroys the monsters in a 
    fantastic explosion.
    BOSS FIGHT!!!..................................................................
    Oikazuchi Omega................................................................
    Goda, having freed himself from the rubble, runs in pursuit of DD as he runs 
    on the roof. Goda and Kiryu corner DD at the edge of the roof. DD says that he 
    created the virus because life is full of hardship, and he felt like he was 
    releasing the human race from the struggles of humanity. A helicopter then 
    swings by with its ladder extended, and DD jumps onto it and escapes!
    Goda raises his gun to fire, but Kiryu stops him. Suddenly, the helicopter 
    starts shaking the ladder around. It lowers enough so that zombies can start 
    climbing up the ladder, all whispering "sweet death..." Akiyama is then 
    revealed as the one piloting the helicopter. He swings in so he can jump onto 
    the roof and join Goda and Kiryu, while the helicopter falls to the ground in 
    a massive explosion...
    With the outbreak under control, the SDF manages to evacuate most everyone out 
    of the city. Majima, who fell asleep in the sauna, causes an explosion. He 
    stumbles out of it, and SDF members prepare to shoot...but he realizes he's 
    not a zombie! His eye is red though, but then he remembers its pollen season! 
    Majima then thinks back to when he was bitten, and realizes that the zombie 
    that bit him had no teeth...it was an old man, and he was bitten with dentures!
    Majima laughs it off...
    With the zombies contained, life in Kamurocho begins to return to normal. 
    Majima begins heading the reconstruction effort of Kamurocho at the blessing 
    of Daigo and the other yakuza bosses. The little girl he befriended visits him 
    and gives him lunch.
    Akiyama falls asleep reading a pornographic magazine. Hana wakes him up, and 
    reminds him that it's collection day!
    Goda takes over at Pops's foodstand. He prepares to kill an octopus, but is 
    stopped when customers arrive. He is happy to see that it is Kiryu and Haruka!
    Kiryu and Haruka walk around Kamurocho, watching life rebuild. They happen upon
    a group of SDF soldiers as they prepare to leave the city, including Asagi, who
    survived the helicopter crash. They salute Kiryu and Haruka as they prepare to 
    A while later...a man shuffles down the street. The police force and the SDF 
    surround him. He announces he's not a zombie, and throws up. Not a zombie. Just
    a drunk.
