Keep in mind that if you’re playing for the first time or if you’ve beat the game a couple of times then the enemies and items that I mention may not always be as I say. Mostly health items can be quite random. For example, I might say there is a health drink, but on your end it might actually be an energy drink. On your first run you’ll probably see less enemies than I mention and you could even run into many more items. If you’ve beat the game a couple of times you could possibly see more enemies and run into less items. Items also can be found in random places due to if you die more. The locations that I give you are the most common locations that I’ve encountered. As you can see, this walkthrough took a while to put together. I tried very hard to ensure that you beat the game and have a good time while doing it. Now let’s get started!

In this walkthrough I tried to be as clear as I could with direction but you’ll probably have to use your map quite a bit. If there is an enemy, I’m sure it’s listed. All items, locations and enemies are in CAPITALS! I have you covered with puzzle solutions as well. Good Luck!


The game starts with Travis Grady talking on the CV with one of his trucker buddies. Through the rain, Travis almost hits a cloaked lady that stumbled out into the middle of the road. He gets out of his truck to search for her, but she disappears and a vision of a little girl is seen clearly through his side mirror. The little girl then runs off and you now have full control of Travis.

From here, run down the road and credits will start to play. This song is O.R.T sung by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. If you listen closely, you can hear someone whispering “Travis.” Keep on heading down the road until there is a cutscene.

Being a hero, Travis runs inside the house. This next part might be pretty confusing, but you are basically going to make your way through the fire until you reach a small altar. Quickly go up the stairs that you see here and enter the door right in front of you. Now run straight, then take a left where the path is clear of fire. Make a right once you get to a round table, run straight then take another right until you hit an alter with candles everywhere. Cutscene.

Backtrack, trying not to run into the fire until Travis crashes through the floor. Run straight down here, then make a left. The child will clear some fire here so keep heading straight. Continue running and she’ll clear away more fire here. Make a left and run behind a green couch and continue until you can go out of the door here. Now, keep heading straight and make a right passing the stairs and go out through the open door. Another scene will play, and Travis will black out.

Once Travis awakes, he is in the town of Silent Hill. He’ll check the map. To exit the map view, press the CIRCLE button and head north up this street. Once you hit KOONTZ ST make a right and go through the open gate here. Enter through the door, which is under the sign that says Alchemilla Hospital.


Once you’re in the hospital, grab the +HOSPITAL MAP+ and read the PUBLIC NOTICE from the board on the wall to Travis’ right. The red triangle next to the reception desk is your {SAVE POINT}. I’d suggest that you save as much as possible, since I’ve ran into quite a few glitches in the game and you wouldn’t want to lose progress up to that point. After saving, check the map and head to the elevator. I promise, I checked every door and they’re all locked for now, so head to the elevator for a cutscene.

Wow, what a warm welcome. That guy… his name is Dr. Kaufmann. He’s a bit crazy. Now it’s time to ride the elevator to get to the second floor. Use the panel to the right of the door to get there. Exit the elevator and when you reach the 2nd floor, go through the double doors in this room. Ahhh! We’ve now encountered our first enemy: the NURSE! They’re pretty slow, but faster than previous games. Their attacks are pretty weak. Grab the HAMMER that Travis turns his head to, on the bench and prepare to fight. Hit R1 (Right trigger for PSP) to get into fighting stance and hit the X button to swing. You’ll be using these commands throughout the game so make sure that you’ve got it down. When she’s down on the ground, hit her with a final blow with just the X button. This is important because if you don’t use this, the monsters could come back up and attack some more so make sure you do this. Melee weapons do break, so make sure you switch often. In your inventory you can see how many swings your weapons can handle. Travis’ punches are pretty powerful as well, but only against certain enemies.

As you see, this hallway is blocked so go through the door to ROOM 205. Grab the DOCTORS DIAGNOSIS off the cart and notice the bloody gurney. Then come up to the huge mirrors. Looking through the mirror, Travis will comment that the room you’re standing in looks weird. Try leaving the room to get a cutscene which will give you a new destination. I’m sorry, but you’re going to have to enter that world now. So let Travis touch the mirror and the nightmare called Silent Hill begins! The room has now turned bloody/rusty, and you’re now in the Otherworld. Grab the SCALPEL off the gurney, the +PLASTIC LUNGS+ from the table and a +HEALTH DRINK+ from the cabinet. Before exiting the room, make sure that you’re well equipped as the game will now be crawling with strange monsters.

Exit the room, and there’s a NURSE out here. Defeat her if you wish, but she’s also easily avoided. Keep in mind that if you ever decide to run past enemies and not kill them, they will still be back out in the area once you return. Head through the door at the end which will take you into the next hallway. There’s nothing down here, except for some cool breathing sounds. Head to the second door on the left side past the bathrooms, ROOM 202. Grab the +GOLDEN EGG+ and read the HURRIED NOTE on the counter. There’s a NURSE back out in this hallway, but just hurry up to ROOM 204 which is the last room out here. Grab the DRIP STAND next to the cooler and read the BLOODY NOTE. Don’t check out the ice box on the gurney yet since it has a number pad that we’ll need to find the combination for. Go back out to the hallway.

There’s a TV in front of you on a broken gurney. Watch out for the NURSE if you didn’t kill her before. If she happens to ever grab you, grapple out of her grip by hitting the X button a couple of times, then either run or fight her. Our destination would be the STAIRS. There is a +HEALTH DRINK+ to the right of the stairs just before you go down them. Proceed down them and exit through the door. On the first floor, check out the door next to the gates. This door has a death mask and it says, “Even the blind have need of eyes, if they wish to gaze at the future.” Remember the eyes part for now, and defeat that annoying NURSE coming towards you. Grab the ALCOHOL BOTTLE on the right side on the shelf and check out the women’s bathroom door. The door has an oval depression and says, “Even in this inferno, From out of the flames I saw life born anew.” You can probably figure out what goes in the oval depression on this door since the symbol is gold. It’s a woman’s bathroom and women carry eggs, so place the GOLDEN EGG in the door and enter the WOMEN’S BATHROOM. There’s a mirror in here but don’t touch it yet. Go into the last bathroom stall and remove the lid to get a +PLASTIC LIVER+. By the sinks on the stall next to you is the memo, STUDENTS MNEMONIC. The little poem will come in handy for later, and you’re now free to touch the MIRROR. There’s a HEALTH DRINK on the floor behind Travis.

Check the 2nd bathroom stall to find AMY “31” written on it. (you might want to consider writing that down.) Visit the next stall and grab the STAFF LOUNGE KEYS. Now our destination is the STAFF LOUNGE, so head out the bathroom and head over there.

There’s an ENERGY DRINK on the couch, a Staff Notice on the board. (HA, party. Grab a Trainee Nurse. That’s funny!) On the counter you can grab the TOASTER and the +EXAM ROOM KEY+. Lucy “23” is written on the wall by the door on your way out. The Conference Room is locked, so let’s head back out the hallway. Enter the EXAM ROOM back by the lobby since we now have the key. On the desk in here, you can grab the TYPEWRITER and read the STAFF MEMO. In the sinks, you’ll find a +PLASTIC INTESTINE+ along with a +PLASTIC STOMACH+.Turn on the light box, and SARAH “19” will appear on the X-ray. There’s an ALCOHOL BOTTLE on the cart next to the human model. Examine the model, and you’ll find that you’ll have to put in the plastic organs that you’ve been finding around the place. Don’t start placing them down yet, bio nerd! We’re still in search of the last piece, so let’s find that now.

Remember that room on the 2nd floor with the ice box? That’s where we’re heading. But before that we need to enter the Otherworld. *SilentMadness tips that you can either make a quicker trip by using the elevator and then touching the MIRROR in ROOM 205 to get back up to the 2nd floor.* You can also enter the Ladies room, touch the mirror in the bathroom and take the stairs up which has the little present of a Hammer waiting for you at the top of the staircase. Exit the stairwell and enter ROOM 209 at the end of the hallway. Now is our first riddle. Refer to the BLOODY NOTE on how to figure this out. You can access this in your inventory by hitting the select button. The key is “age before beauty.” Now take those names from before, and put the ages in order from oldest to youngest (Amy 31, Lucy 23, Sarah 19) so the code is 312319 and the box opens! Now grab the +PLASTIC HEART+, and there will be a NURSE waiting for you outside the door. Head back down to first floor by taking the stairs, and another NURSE waits when you exit the stairwell. Head back to the ladies room, touch the MIRROR and then backtrack all the way back to the EXAM ROOM.

Go up to the plastic human model and refer to the STUDENTS MNEMONIC. The mnemonic hints that, INside STevie LIttle HEnry LUrks. You should be able to figure this out yourself, but if not, place the organs in this order: intestines first at the bottom (where the pelvic area is), stomach above intestines (which looks like a cashew), then the liver, the heart in the middle of the chest area, and over that place the lungs. They should work their way up from the left to right. When you have them all in the right order, you’ll hear a click and the model will sport some new eyes. Grab the +GLASS EYES+.

Do you remember that door in the nightmare hospital with the Death Mask? That’s our new destination. Save if you’d like in the reception area and head back to the WOMEN’S BATHROOM. Touch the MIRROR then exit the bathroom. There’s a NURSE outside here, so quickly examine the Death Mask door. Use the GLASS EYES on the door and enter. There are 2 NURSES in this room. Grab the SCAPEL off the first table and the TV on the table in the corner.

By the huge double doors in here, there is an ENERGY DRINK and a HEALTH DRINK. (Or sometimes there are two Health Drinks here) Enter the EXAM ROOM via your map. Grab the SCALPEL on the table next to the dead person that we used as a model in normal world. Try to go through the doctor’s office door and a cutscene will lead you into your first boss fight.

Here is our new enemy, the STRAIGHT JACKET. You’ll be seeing plenty more of these. Pick a good melee weapon or throwing objects. You can stick it out with Travis’ fists, but it melee weapons will be much quicker. As you see, he doesn’t really chase you around, but he does pick up speed once you get close enough to him. He has 2 attacks. One where he will squirt a huge ball of yellow acid at you and another one where he will jump on you. If he jumps on you, you’ll have to press the correct command buttons as you see them on the screen.So in other words, avoid pushing random buttons or he will get a chance to easily attack you. With about 5 hits to him, the Straightjacket will probably fall out.

Once you defeat him, you should see a red circular symbol on the floor. (kind of looks familiar if you’ve played Silent Hill 4: The Room.) Walk up to it and grab the +FUTURE PIECE+. Here comes another cutscene. Once Travis awakes I suggest that you save here now, via the LOBBY save. The door that you entered the hospital from is now blocked, so pass through the hallway with the bathrooms and exit through the exit doors in the next hallway. You are now finished with the Hospital! And on to roaming the streets.


We’re now going off in search of ammo, weapons and health items (which you should really want). If you think that you don’t need anything then your destination is the BUTCHER SHOP.

Once Travis exits Alchemilla Hospital, there’s a HEALTH DRINK in the left corner in this area. I’ll refer to the map pretty often from now on, so keep checking it. Once you reach CANYON ST, there’s a STRAIGHT JACKET. I’d suggest running away most of the time from these guys, because there are just way too many of them roaming outside. They will also squirt you with yellow acid have pretty good aim, so keep watch for that. They’ll usually squirt if you let them get too close without attacking. It’s a bit of a waste of health if you want to spar with them, but the more enemies you kill will determine your ending. Take it easy on your first run through. Go north up CANYON ST just past the STRAIGHTJACKET, and you’ll see that the road is destroyed. To the left you can grab JAGGED WOOD to attack with and an ENERGY DRINK. Now head south down this street. Next to the walkway you just came through, is an ENERGY DRINK in an empty box by a cop car. A HEALTH DRINK and a BATON lay on top of the car hood, where you’ll run into another STRAIGHT JACKET.

There’s a TOASTER in front of a knocked down garbage can on MIDWAY AVE. On Midway, go down the opening to the west side of the street and there is an ENERGY DRINK up the steps of Town Hall. To the right side of the Town Hall building is a piece of JAGGED WOOD. There are 2 STRAIGHTJACKETS on this street. Across the street, there is a piece of JAGGED WOOD at the base of a tree in the grassy area. By a blue car lies a MEAT HOOK by a dumpster. Down south on BORDEN ST there is a HEALTH DRINK by the door to a house with a yellow truck. Go up the alleyway next to the Lumber Yard to find a STRAIGHT JACKET guarding a HEALTH DRINK by the fence. So now as you see, there’s nowhere else to really go but the Butcher Shop. So backtrack down BORDEN’S, west on CELIO to get to LOW ST. Follow the blood smears here into the BUTCHER SHOP.

Inside the Butcher shop, there’s a *SAVE POINT* (phew!), a MEAT HOOK stuck in a hunk of meat and a HEALTH DRINK on the counter. Enter the door in the back for a cutscene.

GROSS! That huge guy (which resembles Pyramid Head from SH2 a bit) is the Butcher! There’s an ENERGY DRINK in a dumpster across from the dead nurse and a MEAT CLEAVER stuck in another piece of meat and a FIRST AID KIT on the wall. Leave through the double doors at the end of this hallway and now we’re back outside. Destination SANITARIUM, since it’s circled on your map, but I’d like you to get some goodies first =]. On a dumpster around the Butcher Shop there’s an ENERGY DRINK and TARGET PISTOL AMMO! Also on a blue car next to the Butcher Shop (watch out for the 2 STRAIGHT JACKETS) is a PARKING TICKET with the message, “She’s asleep Now.” There’s an ENERGY DRINK next to a tree north on BORDEN ST. There’s a CRATE on top of a dumpster east on TOLUCA AVE and some JAGGED WOOD down further.

Keep heading east on TOLUCA AVE until you hit ACADIA. Pick up the WRENCH and HEALTH DRINK off the top of the hood of a yellow truck. Watch out for many JACKETS for now on around this area. They will respawn!! I believe the many Straightjackets represent the many patients who went through the Sanitarium. Keep heading up this street and you’ll soon find the road is blocked off a bit, so now enter the gates that lead to the SANITARIUM. Behind the first large tree to the left is some TARGET PISTOL AMMO and on the right side behind another tree is another TARGET PISTOL AMMO. To the left of the Sanitarium doors on a window sill is an ALCOHOL BOTTLE. Now, enter the Sanitarium.


The Sanitarium is sort of like a mental hospital if you’re not sure what it is. There isn’t a map yet, so bare with me. Enter the huge diamond shaped area, and take a left and enter the right door here. In this room, you’ll find a FILING CABINET on the desk by the windows, the +TARGET PISTOL+ in the chair with the creepy doll and 2 TARGET PISTOL AMMO on the floor around the chair. When you have all that, leave this room. Now that you have a gun, you’ll want to plan out when to use it. I suggest not using it here in the Sanitarium yet. Melee weapons will work just fine for now. I’ll suggest when you should use your firearms so you don’t end up running out of ammo like I did on my first run. When you’re back out in the hallway go into the wing next to where you just exited. You’ll hear weird noises coming from this area. Read the MAGPIE NOTE under the door out here. Now, enter the left door in the next wing.

Travis will instantly jerk his head to the right so head over there and grab the +SANITARIUM MAP+. On a desk in this room there is the memo STATUS REPORT 3/12/1960. There isn’t anything else of importance in this room, so head out through the opposite door. Here’s a cutscene.

After that weird encounter, enter the first storage room to obtain a TIRE IRON, 2 TARGET PISTOL AMMO and a SCREWDRIVER. Exit back out to the hallway and enter the stairwell. In here, there’s a *SAVE POINT* for future reference. Head up the stairs to reach the 2nd floor. Once you get up here, you’ll see a strange looking enemy called the REMNANT. He’s loud, looks creepy and shadowy, but when you get closer he’s just a wee shrimp. Just walk past him. They’re pretty weak and won’t really do anything, but if you must attack, use either a Melee Weapon or Travis’s fists to destroy them. Head to the Storage Room and kill the NURSE that awaits you. In here you can collect an ALCOHOL BOTTLE in a chair and another one on the floor next to the chair. A FIRST AID KIT and 2 SHOTGUN AMMO are on the next shelf. Exit the room and go back to where the REMNANT is. Enter the door to encounter another circular room and some NURSES. Enter the T.B Ward which is also underlined on your map. Read the IRON LUNG WARNING on the big machine. If you look, you’ll see that there is something cool and shiny inside of that machine, so take another look at the panel and now we have another riddle to solve.

That memo said something about all of the valves being overloaded. That’s our mission. The object is to get all of the little ticks past the red mark. This one isn’t so hard so I suggest trying it out on your own. Just hit the red buttons so that the machine overloads. Here’s the answer: Hit the first (left) red button twice, the middle button twice and the last button twice. Once you have it figured out something will spit out of the lung so grab the +BASEMENT KEY+ from the end of the machine. Back in the diamond area, there will be a REMNANT and 2 NURSES. Go back to the hallway that the STAFF LOUNGE is in and enter the stairwell. Now, we’re going to take the stairs all the way down into the BASEMENT. Grab the TARGET PISTOL AMMO before entering the Basement Door. When you enter the Basement, you’ll see a HUGE monster with a big butt heading down the hallway. Those, are called Carrions. I suggest running past these every chance that you get since they get pretty fast when they see you and will pounce on you. Feel free to attack, but try not to waste too much ammo on them. Melee weapons are okay too, but I suggest running away and staying out of their path. -*Harry’s_Girl also adds “You can easily turn off your light, run up behind them and then beat the crap out of them with a melee weapon of your choice. It’ll also save you a bunch of bullets! I’d say their size is most intimidating.”*-

Both of the Storage Rooms down here are locked, and we don’t need to enter the East Pipe Room yet, so take the North-East diagonal hallway. There’s a JACKET down here, but you can run past him easily. In the STAIRWELL, there is a RAZOR and a HEALTH DRINK on the ground near the stairs. Take the stairs up to the 2nd Floor. There are 2 NURSES down this hallway so be careful and enter the FEMALE HYDRO-THERAPY ROOM. Check out the middle tub and Travis complains about scalding his hand. You think that he could just take out a meat gaff and grab the key, but no. He makes everything so complicated, so press the button on the wall to drain the water and the key out. I promise, we’ll get that key pretty soon. There’s a *SAVE POINT* on the wall, so save your process if you like to. Now, head back out into the hall. There’s a new JACKET out here, but run past it and enter the FEMALE TREAT ROOM and touch the MIRROR.

Grab the TARGET PISTOL AMMO on the bed with the same creepy doll you saw in the first room we started in the Sanitarium. Leave this room into the hallway. There are 2 REMNANTS out here so be careful. Grab the ALCOHOL BOTTLE off of the table out here and go into the STAIRWELL, down to the 1st Floor. There is a *SAVE POINT* on the wall here. Exit the doors and Travis will have a flashback. After that, head into the FEMALE DORM 3. In this room on a desk you can grab TARGET PISTOL AMMO and an ENERGY DRINK on the nightstand next to the bed. Leave this room, and there are 2 JACKETS out here. Enter the Ladies Bathroom and check out the last stall. Hmm, barbed wire. In the back you’ll see a shower room. Go ahead and touch the MIRROR. Now, go on back and check out that room. “BRING ME BACK MY SON” is written out in blood on the floor. Check out the last stall again for a clogged toilet. Flush it, and I’m sure there was a key in there.

After that, leave this room and watch out for the REMNANTS. Enter FEMALE DORM 5. In the chair that Travis is looking at, read the DUTY LOG and get the BATON. There’s TARGET PISTOL AMMO on the desk and grab the PATIENT’S BELONGINGS KEY that is in the suspended tray on top of the bed. There’s also a TABLE LAMP on the nightstand next to the bed with the doll. Leave this room to the hallway. Turn right so that you’re looking at the Female Seclusion door and there is a message for you. Get the TYPEWRITER next to the door and head back down the hallway. Pass the REMNANTS and proceed into the Female Wards. There are 2 NURSES here. Unlock the doors at the end of this hallway just for the future and make your way back to the Ladies Room to touch the MIRROR once more. Go back out to the hallway and enter the Stairwell. Run down to the basement and down the diagonal hallway until you reach some bars.

To the left side, you can grab the SHOTGUN AMMO and 2 TARGET PISTOL AMMO! Then go back to the first floor (all this running around got you some great ammo! So from now on, you can use your service pistol ONLY on CARRIONS if you need to). Use the Stairwell to get back up to the 1st Floor and go into the LADIES BATHROOM once more. Touch the MIRROR again and leave the room. Run west through the door, and then the next door. There’s a REMNANT in here that you can easily run past. Go through the EAST SOLARIUM, which now contains 2 NURSES, and then into the PATIENT’S BELONGINGS ROOM.

In here grab the TYPEWRITER, 2 SHOTGUN AMMO (I feel a new firearm coming up soon!) and then read the STATUS REPORT 2/7/1961. After getting those, head towards the wall at the back of the room. There’s a MIRROR here that you must touch. As you make your exit, there is a +SHOTGUN+ on the door! Also grab the SHOTGUN AMMO that’s laying on the floor next to the door. (Save the shotgun for future boss fights. If you need to use a gun now, stick to the service pistol) Exit this room, and enter the DAYROOM to find a POKER stuck in a chair. There’s a FIRST AID KIT and SHOTGUN AMMO on a wheelchair too. Leave this room and 2 CARRIONS will now be roaming this area. Hurry and enter the doors between the East Solarium and the Dining Hall. In the EAST SOLARIUM, there’s a REMNANT along with a FILING CABINET over on a desk. A HEALTH DRINK and SHOTGUN AMMO can are found on another desk. Exit this area and enter the LAUNDRY ROOM.

Grab the HEALTH DRINK on the floor next to the tipped over cart. SHOTGUN AMMO and a POLICE REPORT are on the next shelf. Leave this room, and enter the stairwell here. There’s TARGET PISTOL AMMO down by the basement in the back.
Now, enter the Basement. In the first STORAGE ROOM down here, there’s a HAMMER and TARGET PISTOL AMMO on the first shelf. There’s also a mirror in the back, but don’t touch it yet! Go up the diagonal hallway, and watch out for the REMNANT. Grab the MEAT HOOK and HEALTH DRINK on top of the crates, then head back through the door. When you’re back in the hallway, go to the EAST PIPE ROOM. In here, go down the stairs and around to where there’s running water. In the green sludgey drain, you can finally get the INTERVIEW ARCHIVES KEY. Now exit and there are now 3 REMNANTS in this hallway. Hurry back to the STORAGE ROOM and touch the MIRROR.

Grab the MEAT HOOK and TARGET PISTOL AMMO on the floor and use the stairwell to get to the 2nd Floor. Out here on the 2nd Floor, there’s a JACKET. Get past him and go through the door. Out here there are a couple of REMNANTS so hurry
and enter the ARCHIVES ROOM. Grab the TV off of the shelf and as you get close to the MIRROR, there’s a flashback. Once the flashback ends, grab the SHOTGUN AMMO off of the desk and then touch the MIRROR. There’s a KATANA (so random!) on the broken shelf in this room, and leave after grabbing that. There are 3 JACKETS in here so hurry to the West Wing of this area and go through the door. There’s nothing down this hallway, so you can get a breath of fresh air. Enter the stairwell, and go back down to the BASEMENT floor. There’s a TOOLBOX in the far back corner. Go through the door. There’s a CARRION in here, but I’m sure you can waltz past him. Take the South-West Diagonal Hallway. Down here, there are 2 JACKETS so hurry past them both and enter the stairwell.

Go up to the 1st Floor and exit. Coming right at you is a JACKET. Kill it and enter the MALE SECLUSION WING. Get the BATON and read the Clipboard. The rooms are as followed by the clipboard. You’ll want to remember the colors of the pills and which room had what pills. Enter Room #1. You’ll get a RAZOR from the table and you’ll see a huge bloody mess. Room #2 looks like it’s been scorched, so no entry. Room #3 has a really nice dress on a dummy, perfume bottles and empty hat boxes. Room #4 is heavily barreled shut and in Room #5 is a ton of uneaten food and a scale that has been used a lot. With all of this in mind, leave the Male Seclusion back out to the hallway. There are 2 NURSES out here, so hurry past them and enter the Infirmary. In here, there’s a *SAVE POINT* and an interesting set of figurines on the back table. Examine them and here’s another riddle for you.

You have to give the dolls the right colored pill (refer to the clipboard in your memo section). Match the doll with the room he would be in. Based on the rooms in the Seclusion area, you should be able to piece them together. If not, the answers are revealed here: the doll first to the left gets the greenpill (since he is psychotic and has a knife), the 2nd one gets the blue pill (since his whole body is burned), the middle guy gets a blue pill also (since he’s an anorexic), the 4th guy gets the red pills (since he is emo and has a razor on his chest) and lastly, the guy on the right gets the yellow pill (because he is a cross dresser.) Once that is done there’s another click and akey is now visible. Grab *DR HARRIS’ KEY* and the SCALPEL in here too. Save if you haven’t and leave the room. There are 2 JACKETS back out in the hallway. Enter the STAIRWELL. Going up one flight, there is a HAMMER on the floor near the rail if you want it.

Now go back down the stairs and enter the BASEMENT. There’s a REMNANT down here. Head down the South-East Diagonal hallway (you’ll run into another REMNANT on the way) and enter the door at the end. There’s a CARRION here. Go into the STORAGE ROOM out here and touch the MIRROR. Once you touch it, there’s an AMBER REPORT on the table. Back out in this hallway, there is a JACKET. Enter the unused Stairwell. There is a WRENCH by one of the poles down here. Go through the 1st floor doors. There’s a huge hole in the middle of this hallway so go through the now unlocked double doors. In the diagonal room there are 2 NURSES. Enter Dr. Harris’ Office using *DR. HARRISíS KEY*. Grab the DRIP STAND next to the desk and get the *JOCASTA ARTIFACT* off of the desk and read the PATIENT NOTES. Exit the room. When back out in the diagonal room, pick up the CHILD’S DRAWING outside of his room.

Feel free to grab the BATON off of the couch out here, while keeping watch out for the NURSES and then enter the EAST SOLARIUM. Run past the 2 REMNANTS in here and exit through the other door. Run down this hallway and enter the next big doors. Enter the BATHROOM and touch the MIRROR. After you touch the mirror, exit out to the hallway. Go up to the doors that lead into the Female Seclusion Area and use the *JOCASTA ARTIFACT* on the door. Cutscene.

After the cutscene ends, you’ll definitely want to save using the *SAVE POINT* in this room. Your first big boss fight is coming up, so think about your strategy before going in there. Equip your Shotgun and enter the room, since all of the other doors in here are locked.

This boss fight is slightly difficult. She seems somewhat suspended from the ceiling, contained in some sort of circular contraction. Her one attack is emitting spikes out from her circular skirt thingie and another attack is that she will emit a cloud of acid. You should be able to get away in time from her attacks easily by running away from her, but soon the walls will start to attack. They emit a lot of damage so I consider this: get as close to a corner as you can without actually being in it, and shoot her with your gun. If she starts to get close, run away and into the next corner. Note that she has about two attacks which include spikes that come out from her if you get too close. I suggest reloading your gun from the menu which will save you precious time. Remember how many times you shoot at her (the shotgun holds 4 shells) so you’ll know when to reload.

*Harry’s_Girl has an alternate strategy for those that wish to save ammo and are using a melee weapon: “If you have run out of ammo or just want to save it, you can run up in front of her, and beat her with a melee. When she starts to tremble vigorously, run away because she is preparing to attack. Then once the mist clears, or when she retracts her spike, run at her and attack again.”*

After the battle, smile and pick up the +PAST PIECE+. A Cutscene will play. Once Travis wakes up, he will be back in the diagonal lobby room. Run out to the Lobby area and pick up the THEATRE TICKET. Our next stop is the theatre, so
head out the door to enter the monster infested streets.


Right outside the door, you should hear a JACKET’S grunt and see a running car with the back popped open. Get the *LUMBER YARD KEY* out of the trunk and exit the Sanitarium Area, watching out for all the JACKETS in this area. I want to add something while exploring the streets. Don’t waste your ammo on useless monsters. If you can run past them, do so. Energy Drinks will give you a boost on stamina if you find Travis lagging in his running so take good use of those. You need to preserve all the ammo that you have right now so if you do need to use ammo, please don’t waste it on monsters out in the streets. Stick to melee for that.

There are no items in this area if you picked them all up earlier, so I suggest running all the way to TOLUCA AVE. Next to a blue building on this street on top of a dumpster you will find an ENERGY DRINK and PISTOL AMMO. Run to the Deliveries door to enter the BUTCHER SHOP again. In here you can save via the *SAVE POINT*. Exit the shop following the bloody drag marks on the floor. The poor brutally killed nurse has been dragged out here. Go north up LOW ST, East on CELIO Ave, up BORDEN ST, take a right on MIDWAY and then go North up the alleyway next to the Lumber Yard (watching out for the JACKET). Open up the green doors with the LUMBERYARD KEY. Take a right when you first get in to find a HAMMER. Head down the trail which is pretty straightforward and on a table with some wood is the memo NEWSPAPER. I wonder who could have written this? Also, grab the AMPOULE that was laying under it.

Keep heading down this area and you’ll find a HAMMER on another table. From here on you should soon find a blue door that you can exit. Go south down ASH RD past the police cars and broken roads, between a blue house and a brown fence are some TARGET PISTOL BULLETS. There’s an ENERGY DRINK in the corner of a bush fence. A HEALTH DRINK and a MEAT HOOK are by the door of this house. To the right side of the tavern behind a trash can is a box of TARGET PISTOL AMMO. If you go up INDUSTRY RD, you’ll see a CRATE and 2 TARGET PISTOL AMMO next to a dumpster. On the other side of this building, you can grab another PISTOL AMMO. Down MIDWAY AVE, by a house you’ll see a HEALTH DRINK. Run north up ACADIA (watching out for the CARRION & JACKET) and follow the blood trail around. Head to the back of the GREENFIELD APARTMENTS. Keep going back and you’ll find an ENERGY DRINK and a BATON by a dumpster. Now go up the stairs and enter the apartment room.

When you first get in the room, grab the TOASTER and SCREWDRIVER off of the Kitchen counter. In the living room is a TABLE LAMP and on the green couch you can find 2 TARGET PISTOL AMMO. Go into the next hallway and enter the bedroom.
Yuck! There’s such a mess in here! Poor Straight Jacket. On the floor in the bloody mess you can find a RAZOR. Next to the bed on the nightstand grab the NAPKIN. Enter the bathroom after grabbing the FIRST AID KIT and then jump down through the hole. This looks like the Apartment Lobby. Notice the overflowing mailbox to Room 213. That’s about it in here, so go out through the brown doors. There is a HEALTH DRINK, SERVICE PISTOL AMMO and a MEAT HOOK next to the dumpster to the right once you exit the lobby. If you run across the street, there’s a fence next to a building where you can pick up a HEALTH DRINK, SERVICE PISTOL AMMO and RIFLE AMMO. Looks like we’ll be picking up a new firearm on the way! Next to the building with the Tempest sign is a HEALTH DRINK and AMMO by a dumpster. Go up to the Theatre Ticket booth and place the *THEATRE TICKET* from your inventory into the slot. The main door opens up, so enter it.


Once you’re in here, grab the handy dandy +THEATRE MAP+ off of the bench here and save with the *SAVE POINT* next to the Cloak Room. Grab the WRENCH and HEALTH DRINK by the doors next to the Staircase. Now enter through the AUDITORIUM doors. Prepare for a cutscene. Afterwards, go up towards the stage. Enter the STORAGE ROOM up to the left of the stage and notice the puppet hanging upside down. Exit through the opposite door. On the stage, there is an audio memory that Travis hears. Run and enter through the other door. In the CURTAIN CONTROL ROOM, get the TECHNICIANS WARNING off of the switch next to the door and notice that the switch does nothing when Travis touches it.

On the table next to it are some IRON WEIGHTS. On the next table is some TARGET PISTOL AMMO as well as a *SAVE POINT* in this room. Phew, there’s a lot of stuff in just that one room. Exit out into the hall here. There’s a HAMMER on a small table down here. Enter the doors at the other end of the hallway. Step forward and a cutscene will play.

These puppet guys are called ARIELS. They will appear on the ground later in this level so watch out. Destroy them with melee weapons and they should get knocked out within a couple of swings. If they happen to grab you, tap X to release their grip. Grab the HEALTH DRINK that he was guarding and head down the hallway. There’s a TV laying on some boxes down here. Enter the DIRECTOR’S OFFICE and take the +SUN TOTEM+. Read the HANDWRITTEN DIARY PAGE and get the SERVICE PISTOL AMMO on the desk. Take the HEALTH DRINK on the shelf in here before you exit. Look out for the new ARIEL out here. Grab the SHOTGUN AMMO off of the chair, head back down the hallway and enter the MEN’S DRESSING ROOM.

Before touching the MIRROR, grab the KATANA next to pizza boxes and read the PRODUCTION NOTES. Whoa, this place seems to freak me out the most. Especially the music just now. Leave this room. There are 2 ARIELS out here. Run through this hallway and go into the DIRECTOR’S OFFICE. Grab the +BALCONY CORRIDOR KEY+ and +SERVICE PISTOL+ from the chair and then exit. Run all the way back down this hallway and enter the next hallway through the doors at this end. There’s a CARRION down here so be careful. Continue through the next doors. There’s a BLOODY STRAIGHT JACKET in here that you should kill. Now enter the stairwell.

Go up the stairs and enter the 2nd Floor. There’s an ARIEL up here so kill it and check out this door here. It reads: I am a child town by twin desired, I stand before a door. My right hand calls to the light, my left hand ushers in darkness.” Hmm, pretty obvious. Place the SUN TOTEM in the right slot and then head back down the stairs. Exit the Stairwell and from here, run back to the MEN’S DRESSING ROOM and touch the MIRROR once more. Now, after entering the MIRROR go back into Curtain Control, pass the stage, through the Storage Room where the ARIEL puppet you saw before came to life. Exit here and backtrack all the way to the lobby. From the lobby, head up the staircase to the left and enter the doors up here. There’s an ARIEL on the floor so kill it and grab the SERVICE PISTOL AMMO. Use the key on the BALCONY CORRIDOR to get into the Lightening Box.

Once you’re in, grab the FIRST AID KIT and SHOTGUN AMMO off of the control panel and read the WIRING NOTE which is really important. Grab the SCREWDRIVER afterwards, then turn around and grab the 4 LIGHT BULBS (250W, 500W, 750W and the 125W bulbs). When you have all these, exit out through the next hallway. There’s a JACKET in here. Enter the Stairwell. There is a HEALTH DRINK on the top of a box down here. Go down to the First Floor and exit the stairwell. Kill the JACKET in here and grab the MOON TOTEM off of the trolley. Go through the door that leads to the hall. There’s an ARIEL in here. Enter the next door, pass the ARIEL and enter the MEN’S DRESSING ROOM. Touch the MIRROR and exit back to the hallway.

Backtrack all the way to the stairwell here watching out for the 2 ARIELS and CARRION here. Go up to the 2nd Floor. Kill the 3 ARIELS out here and place the MOON TOTEM on the left side of the door and enter. Go through the next door where a CARRION waits. Enter the door down this hallway, and watch out for the ARIEL. Keep going down the hallway to encounter yet another ARIEL. Go to the end of this hallway to pick up your new firearm, the HUNTING RIFLE and some RIFLE AMMO. Now back down the hallway and enter the Costume Storage Room. Touch the MIRROR and grab the KATANA on the shelf behind Travis and read the SKETCHES MEMO. You should hear a crazy sound like something fell. Grab the ENERGY DRINK while you’re at it, and now exit the room. Watch out for the ARIELS and enter the ORCHESTRA STORAGE. There are IRON WEIGHTS by some empty viola cases and a *SAVE POINT* on a drum. Exit out to the hallway. There is an AMPOULE out here by the Storage Room.

After that, head out to the next hallway where a JACKET awaits you. There’s RIFLE AMMO on the floor next to the first catwalk door you see. Enter the 2nd catwalk door. In here is another riddle for you. Travis will notice 4 empty light holders and a switch at the end of the walkway. Refer to the WIRING NOTE. This one takes a bit of good ole math skills. Here’s the answer if you can’t figure it out. In fixture A, place the 500W bulb, B 125W, C 750W and for D place the 250W bulb. After that’s done, flip the switch at the end. You should hear an angry groan if you’ve done this correctly and awesome music should play. Yay! The lights are on also. Exit the catwalk and watch out for the JACKET out here. You now want to backtrack all the way down to the Curtain Control Room on the First Floor.

In here, Travis can now pull the switch. Leave this room through the stage doors and as you can see the curtain has now come up! Head to the area behind the CURTAIN CONTROL and now we get to play around with the scenery. Flip the first switch for scenery and the second switch for the props. Now you have to touch the mirror. Once you enter, you’re in a type of forest world. Run up to the tree to the left and get the STAGE OFFICE KEY. Travis hears a flashback which nearly scared me to death. After that, exit back out through the mirror and now it’s time to flip the scenery again. Change the scenery to the 3rd switch and flip the 1st prop switch. Now, head into the mirror once more. Now it’s a type of library world. Read the 3 memo’s off of the table, then head back out. To the right off of the small table, grab the 2 RIFLE AMMO, an AMPOULE and Chapter 3 of what you were reading.

After reading all those, exit through the MIRROR and enter the CURTAIN CONTROL room. Exit through the door here and a CARRION might attack you. Kill it and go through the upper hallway. Head past the 4 ARIELS on your way to the STAGE OFFICE ROOM. There’s an ARIEL in here. Grab the PROP LEVER on the desk then make your way back to the CURTAIN CONTROL room, watching out for the ARIEL and the CARRION. 2 ARIELS also guard the Control Door. SAVE in here because a boss fight is coming up. Grab the KITCHEN KNIFE in the chair and exit to the stage. Place the CONTROL LEVER in the props panel. Switch the 2nd scenery switch and the 3rd prop switch and prepare yourself for battle. Before going in, I suggest you should use your Hunting Rifle and if you happen to run out of ammo, use your Shotgun.

The Caliban is a huge boss. He walks on all fours, and has a creepy looking head thingie. He has about one attack that’s very powerful. He will ram right into you and you’ll most likely need to heal yourself. You’ll want to keep in the corners and keep shooting, just like the strategy you used in the Sanitarium. If you keep in the corners and far away him, you probably won’t see him at all. You’ll have a really good amount of room to move in, just keep in mind that he is mostly in the center of the room. I’m sure that you could use melee weapons if you’d like to, but I wouldn’t risk it here. His hits are almost one hit kills, so stick to the firearms if you’d like to make it out alive. The Callibans will soon roam the streets as your new enemies, except they’ll be easier to kill.

*Here is Harry’s_Girl’s melee weapon way: “If you have no ammo, run out, or simply wish to save the ammo, use this method. Run around behind him, at his back which means you are actually facing his stomach. You can swing like crazy. He is really slow, so you can take your time. He will rotate slowly, but is unable to turn quickly. So you can easily move along with him. He may even jump away from you across the room, trying to get to you. If this happens, just run around behind him and resume attacking him.”*

After you kill him, pick up the *FALSEHOOD PIECE*. Travis will have another cutscene and he’ll wake up in the lobby. A poor dead Ariel lays ahead of you. Take the *MOTEL KEY* from him and save because we’re going back outside….


Once you’re outside, keep running west down KOONTZ ST. Pass up all the CARRIONS and JACKETS. In front of Cafe Sun, there is a HEALTH DRINK on a table and some SERVICE PISTOL AMMO in a corner. Keep heading down KOONTZ until the road breaks off (watch out for the JACKET at the corner). Run to the end of WILSON ST and on the right side, you’ll find some SERVICE PISTOL AMMO and an ENERGY DRINK. Now run back and enter the BOOKSTORE. In the back of the store, an army guy is holding your latest firearm, the ASSAULT RIFLE. To his left there are 2 ASSAULT RIFLE AMMO. Read the memo on the cash register. Hmm, remember Room 213 in the Greenfield Apartments mailbox was overflowing? Punch in numbers 213 to receive the BOOKSTORE KEY. Now, exit the store through the backdoor using the key. We are back out in the streets once again! By the opening gates to the hospital, there is a yellow TOOLBOX as well as 2 SHOTGUN AMMO and a HEALTH DRINK on top of a dumpster here.

Next to the POST OFFICE, pick up the 2 HEALTH DRINKS and a TIRE IRON off of the dumpster after killing the 2 JACKETS that patrol this region. **If you’ve already beaten this game, run up the stairs in this area and grab the ROOM 503 KEY if you’re hoping for the Ambassador ending.**

Up on CRICHTON ST in the park area of the Playing Field is a HEALTH DRINK by a lamp post and 2 ASSAULT RIFLE AMMO on a blue bench. From now on, if you want to use your TARGET PISTOL to blast enemies, feel free to. Keep heading down CRICHTON ST. There are about 4 CARRIONS and one HUGE CARRION that when you kill it, he evaporates into green smoke and disappears. It looks cool! Now, go up to the big gates across from the General Store to find 2 RIFLE AMMO and a MEAT GAFF on the gate. Now, since the road here is blocked off, enter the GENERAL STORE. By the wall to Travis’ right, there’s an AMPOULE on the floor. Through the middle isle there’s ASSAULT RIFLE AMMO and 2 SERVICE PISTOL AMMO. There’s a TOOLBOX on the floor by a cooler and on the counter by the *SAVE POINT*, is the TILL RECEIPT and a HEALTH DRINK. Save the game, grab the BROKEN POLE and then go through the exit. You can find an ENERGY DRINK on top of the crate out here.

There are 2 CARRIONS out here. Head down the alleyway across from the Pet Shop and watch out for the CARRION. There’s a HEALTH DRINK next to a trash can down here and now you should hear some weird noises. Back out on the street, is our new friend, the CALIBAN! They’re big, but slow, just like the boss so I suggest running past them as much as possible. You shouldn’t ever have to really kill one. Between Allen Storage and another blue building, there’s RIFLE AMMO, a HEALTH DRINK and a TIRE IRON. In the Scrap Yard, you’ll find RIFLE AMMO and a HAMMER. In the area next to here, you’ll find a huge CARRION and 2 SHOTGUN AMMO near a dumpster. Watch out for the CALIBAN in the street. In front of the blue building next to Allen Storage is an ENERGY DRINK, HEALTH DRINK and ASSAULT RIFLE AMMO. Now, head up RIVERSIDE DR and enter the motel area via the red circle on your map. In this area, there’s a *SAVE POINT*. Go into the door here using the +MOTEL KEY+ and a cutscene plays.


After the cutscene, read the GUEST REGISTRATION MEMO on the desk and grab the +MOTEL MAP+ on the wall. Go behind the desk and get the *ROOM 306 KEY* and check out the ROTARY CALENDAR, but do nothing yet. Exit reception through the door next to the Managers Office. Out here, enter the gate next to the stairs. Enter ROOM 209 in this area. Destroy the JACKET lurking in the bathroom and grab the RIFLE AMMO off of the bathroom sink, before exiting this room. Enter ROOM 302 for a LIGHT STAND next to the bed with suitcase full of shoes, then exit this room. All of the other rooms here are blocked, so go back through the fence area and go up the stairs. Enter ROOM 312 for a JACKET and 2 SHOTGUN AMMO on the desk, before you leave. Watch out for the JACKET now out here and grab the HEALTH DRINK on top of the AC here. Turn around and head to the other side of the 300 rooms, watching out for another JACKET. Enter ROOM 316 for a LIGHT STAND and to see some wedding clothes.

Exit this room, kill the JACKET and descend the new flight of stairs here. Down here, there are 2 CARRIONS that you should worry about and a CALIBAN. Enter ROOM 308 for our latest enemy. These are called TWO-BACKS. They’re a bit fast and they’ll jump on you. I don’t suggest melee attacks on them, but rather using a firearm to destroy them. You are free to now start using your Shotgun on these guys. Once you kill it, grab the SHOTGUN AMMO waiting for you in the bathroom. Exit here, and enter ROOM 306 by using the key. Another TWO-BACK awaits you in here. Kill it, and there is a mirror in the bathroom, so go ahead and touch it. Read the NOTE on the wall next to the door and exit. Out here, enter ROOM 309 for a JACKET. There is a SPEAR on the bed and a HEALTH DRINK on the toilet in this room. Exit and go through the side door that leads to the reception area. There are 2 CARRIONS out here and 2 SHOTGUN AMMO by the gate that leads to the 100 Rooms.

Leave this area using the gate by the stairs. There are 2 CARRIONS out here. If you would like a SPEAR, search the bathroom in ROOM 209 for one and if you want to get a FIRST AID KIT, enter ROOM 301 but you’ll have to pass the JACKET. Now enter the area that has the 500 Rooms. A TWO-BACK guards this area so enter Room 503 for a MIRROR in the bathroom that you must touch. In this room, you’ll notice many drawings on the wall and pictures hanging all over. Read the MEMO on the desk and leave. There’s a CALIBAN back out here. **(If you grabbed the ROOM 502 KEY, you can use it on the ROOM 502 door for your special ending. Great job with completing the game!)**

Grab the SHOVEL by the door to the MAINTENENCE ROOM and then enter. Kill the JACKET in here and grab the TOOLBOX. In the back of the room there’s a HEALTH DRINK, REDEEMER AMMO and the JANITORS NOTE on the table. Notice the VICE here and then enter Maintenance. In here, you can look through the peep holes. The first one on the left shows a cutscene. To the right, there’s just a TV playing static in a bathroom. The next one on the left shows nothing, and the right shows just an empty bathroom. Next on the left, there’s nothing and on the right you can hear some flirtations giggling and a red sweater. Oo, I wonder what’s going on in there? Grab the BROKEN POLE in the middle of the walkway. And the last hole on the left, you see the Butcher, some hanging pictures and a calendar with an important day circled! If you can’t see the date, June 12th is circled. Look through that same hole once more, and the Butcher disappeared. ON the table at the end take the *MANAGERS OFFICE KEY* and the SHOTGUN PHOTO.

Now, go back through the maintenance room and exit. Go through the gate by Staff Accommodations. There are 2 TWO-BACKS down here. Exit through the other gate. Run past everything and enter RECEPTION. Use the MANAGERS OFFICE KEY on the door. In here, a TWO-BACK awaits you. Grab the DUTY LOG and ASSAULT RIFLE AMMO. If you examine the stuffed heads, Travis makes a cute comment. Exit out of there through the opposite door. Enter ROOM 108 to find a TWO-BACK, HEALTH DRINK, ASSAULT RIFLE AMMO, your latest firearm, the REDEEMER and a box of REDEEMER AMMO on the desk by the flag. Enter the bathroom to find a red CRATE, then exit the room. Enter ROOM 106 to find TWO-BACK, a KNIFE on the bed and 2 RIFLE AMMO on the window sill. Leave this room. There’s a JACKET and a piece of JAGGED WOOD by the dumpsters. Once you come to the kitchen area don’t panic, but another boss fight is coming up. I suggest using either the Hunting Rifle,
Assault Rifle or Redeemer for this battle.

Finally we get to face-off with this Butcher creep! The Kitchen gives you somewhat a bit of space to move around. The middle island is probably the most annoying part. With your firearm equipped, I suggest you run a couple of feet ahead of the Butcher and then start blasting off shots. When he gets close run around to the other side of the isle (keep far away from him), then fire some more. Reloading from the menu at this time could be crucial so make sure that you’re doing this. If he gets close, or you somehow end up running right into him he’ll stab you with his knife. It doesn’t take as much health as you think it would, but you shouldn’t want him to come close to you at all. Keep shooting off rounds into him and he should soon fall. Travis will give him a final stab at the end.

*Harry’s_Girls’ Alternate melee plan: “The Butcher is kind of slow, so you can use melee weapons if you have run out, or again are saving them for something else. He comes at you, turn away from him and run around the island to the far side. Turn off your light, and look for the Butcher. He usually comes around counter-clockwise on my game. Now run behind him. You will have enough time to hit him once or twice. I suggest using a long range melee weapon.”*

After you fight, grab the MEAT GAFF by the door and a MEAT CLEAVER on the island. Leave this room through the door to happily find a *SAVE POINT*! After you save, read the “TO MY ABSENT WIFE” memo, then exit out the door here. Check out the pool. Travis wants that, but he can’t get it yet. Enter ROOM 102 if you’d like to get a LIGHT STAND, but there’s a TWO-BACK in there. There’s nothing in ROOM 101 but a JACKET and smelly old cages. Enter the GAME ROOM now. Go to the pinball machine and grab the *TOKEN*. There’s a CUE STICK on the pool table. Grab the other four STICKS on the rack and you can leave this scene after Travis’s flashback. Go to the Laundry Room now. There’s a HEALTH DRINK on a red chair. Check out the washer here and read the WASHING MACHINE MANUAL. Go back into your memo section and find the JANITORS LOG. He mentions to set the dryer to low spin, 60 wash, drain and then pre-rinse. Find these on the manual and you might want to write the symbols down.

Now, insert the TOKEN into the washer. You should be able to figure this out on your own. Answers: turn the knob to the circle with the one dot inside of it, then to the crown like symbol with the 2 dots, then the square symbol with the lines and finally the other square thing with the counter clockwise circle. The power should turn on if done correctly. Grab the *CLEOPATRA ROOM KEY* from the washer and then exit and go up the stairs. Watch out for the JACKET that lurks around here as you make you way to the CLEOPATRA ROOM using the Key. ON the table in this room, grab the RIFLE AMMO and pick up the SNAKEBITE PHOTO. In the bathroom you can hear some laughing and Travis sees a hole in the bathtub. Jump down. Wow, what a cutscene! I like the music here. You’ll see some ‘white powder’ on the desk here (which is even all over the bathroom too). On the table in the next room, you’ll find SHOTGUN AMMO and a letter to Kaufmann from Dahlia. A TYPEWRITER ischilling on the desk in this room.

The door here is locked, so go back into the bathroom and touch the MIRROR. There is now a TWO-BACK in here. Make sure you grab the OVERDOSE PHOTO in here on the wall. Exit through the door now. Go to the pool and since it’s now drained, get the *JEWELED HEART* out of it. Enter the Diner and get the *ORNAMENTAL DAGGER* out of one of the cages with the pink thing in it and exit. There is nowhere left to go but up, so now ascend the stairs. The doors here are locked so make your way past the JACKET and check out the Nero Room. Hmm, use the ORNAMENTAL DAGGER on the door and enter. You’ll see SHOTGUN AMMO on the floor. Run into the next room and a STABBING PHOTO is on a set of pipes. In the bathroom, there’s a MEAT CLEAVER and another hole. Jump down the hole. You’re now in the King Suite if you check your map. Grab the FIRST AID KIT out in the hallway and then exit through the hole in the wall here. Now, you are back in Maintenance.

At the table at the end there is a BROKEN HEART PHOTO. If you look through some of the peepholes there are mutilated jackets, but nothing too fancy. Exit out into the Maintenance Room. You’ll come across the ‘TO A GHOST’ memo. It should give you a good idea of what to do with the JEWELED HEART now, but first we got to get to a MIRROR. Enter ROOM 503 once more and reach out to the mirror. Now, exit back out here and a CALIBAN still lurks outside. Get past him and enter the MAINTENANCE once more. Go to the back again where the VICE is. Enter your inventory and examine the JEWELED HEART, then crush it open with the VICE. Grab the *RING* when that’s over with and then backtrack you way to reception, watching out for all things creepy. Do this by taking the gated path by Staff Accommodations and then from here, go through the gate and enter RECEPTION.

Once you’re in, go to your inventory and examine the RING. It says, “To my June bride.” Remember that date from the calendar? The 12th, and refer to Travis’s LUCKY QUARTER for the date 61. This is pretty tricky to figure out on your own. Go to that Rotary Calendar and enter the date 06/12/61. Now place the RING in the circular depression that just opened up. Turn around and on the Key Board grab the *ROOM 500 KEY*. From here, go all the way back to the 500 Rooms, being careful of the 2 JACKETS and the CALIBAN here. Enter ROOM 503 and touch the MIRROR. Once you exit a cutscene with young Travis will trigger and you’ll be right outside door 500. Enter the room by using the key. You can save using the *SAVE POINT* to Travis’ left. Run all the way down the door.

This can either be a really tricky or a really easy boss fight. As you can see, he is part of the wall. Obviously, you’ll want to keep far away from that side of the room at all costs. The attacks aren’t much, just the two side heads will stretch out and try to stomp on you, but if you keep to the far back corner and keep blasting him with shots, you should have no problem and this will be a pretty good boss fight. You could try using melee weapons, but I suggest since we have a ton of ammo now, just use one of the firearms that you used during the Butcher fight. I suggest the REDEEMER here. One bullet right after the other.

Once the battle is over, grab the *TRUTH PIECE* and another cutscene will trigger.


After Travis wakes up, you see he’s in some sort of Storage Room. Get the REDEEMER AMMO and the FIRST AID KIT, then exit through the brown door. Yep, you’re in a hospital. Enter the door in front of you. Grab the ASSAULT RIFLE AMMO and an AMPOULE in here. You’ll see a big red circular symbol thing that you’ve been seeing all along after every fight. Pick up the *PRESENT PIECE* and now here’s a really fun puzzle for you.

You have to keep rotating and switching the pieces around so they somewhat match the inside symbol. Sort of like a rubix cube. There’s isn’t a strategy that is really explainable, so it’s mostly trial and error here. The L1 button rotates to the left, R1 rotates to the right, the square button rotates the current piece, circle takes the piece off and the X button allows you to select which piece to use. Have a fun time figuring this out. Don’t worry if it’s taking a while, it took me about 4 minutes to figure this out on my first run through. A tip is to check out the sides before adding them to the center piece. After you set that up, there’s a WRENCH next to Travis.

Exit through the door over here. Go down the hallway and enter the door on the right by the bars. Go up the stairs here. If you check your map, you’ll see that you’re in the hospital again. Use your map from now on for reference, but you don’t need it. Head to the *SAVE POINT* and you should certainly save. Now exit outside through the double doors over here. Here’s a cutscene and you’ll find that you’re in a pretty strange place afterwards.


This music doesn’t help much either. From here, head to the right and on a barrel there’s a SHOVEL and an AMPOULE. Turn left and run until you find the CHILD’S MAP slapped on the wall. Check it out. The destination is that circled area down SIMONS. Head there now if you don’t feel like going through the hassle of searching for ammo and items through the now nightmare, super steroid monster infested town.

For those that don’t mind, watch out for that HUGE CARRION (that will hurt you after you kill it by falling on your head if you don’t move fast enough) when you turn right on KOONTZ. I suggest running from these things, but since we’re nearly to the end you can use your ammo as much as you’d like. Just save some for the last battle! Down here, is another CARRION and you’ll find 2 ASSAULT RIFLE AMMO. Nothing else here, so head down left on KOONTZ. Run past a TWO-BACK, and another one through all the twists and turns the road has to offer. Then you’ll meet another TWO-BACK guarding 2 REDEEMER AMMO and a FIRST AID KIT. The rest of the roads here are blocked, so go back down KOONTZ and SIMMONS. Head up SIMMONS. After you see the first TWO-BACK down here, there’s a PITCHFORK to the left standing up. Run past the next one and keep going up SIMMONS. You’ll hear a CALIBAN but you can easily outrun him. When you reach SAGAN, explore the left for a CARRION in front of a tree guarding 2 ASSAULT RIFLE AMMO.

You might have to kill it in order to grab your ammo. There’s also a BROKEN POLE randomly floating in the air over here. After collecting these, go right down SAGAN. Go past the TWO-BACK here and keep heading up SIMMONS. You’ll come to a TWO-BACK and a CALIBAN here. By a tree, you’ll find 2 REDEEMER AMMO and a SPEAR. Keep going straight and you’ll encounter another TWO-BACK. There are 2 HEALTH DRINKS on a window sill here.

Turn right down this street and you’ll reach the shop, finally. Enter. Go down this hall and enter the door at the end. In this room, there’s nothing of interest, but a small hole that gets Travis’ attention. Examine the hole in the back of the room by the lamp and he’ll enter it. You have to control Travis to get through this hole, so tilt your analog stick to the left to get him through. Once Travis reaches the end, notice the alter. I’d suggest saving via the 6 {save points} on the wall and keep down the hallway (looks like Konami & Climax are trying to tell ya something). There’s a really interesting cut scene. Here’s our last boss fight =]

Final Boss Battle / Flauros Demon

YOU now have to fight the demon. For a last boss fight, I found him to be pretty puny. Especially, if he’s supposed to be a demon. Wow. A good strategy is to just run around and shoot him. Stick to the Redeemer or the one of the rifles. He probably won’t even touch you if you keep running away and shooting. Even if he does attack, they aren’t all that hot, so no need to worry. Now, if you are using a melee weapons, be careful! His one attack where he makes these fire meteors fall from the ceiling is very powerful. Just keep out of his way and blast or beat him to death.

*Harry’s_Girl has you prepared on the no-ammo alternate strategy: “Perhaps you have already used all your ammo getting here (I did my first play through) but do not fear, you can use melee weapons. I strongly suggest a medium to long range melee weapon for this fight. Run up to him and strike him several times. When you see little firefly like things flying around his face, dodge to the left or right quickly and run around behind him. When the beam dissipates, begin striking him. He should die pretty easily.”*

Once you destroy him sit back, relax and enjoy your ending.


Here are a few tips for using this speed walkthrough:

  • I suggest that you use this after your first run.
  • Skipping all cut scenes will give you a better time, especially if you’re hoping for the Fireman and Sprinter accolades. Even skim through memos. Actually, you don’t even need to read the memos!
  • Make sure that you turn on the walk/run option that you unlocked from your first playthrough, to run which saves more time.
  • Travis will notice if there are Health or Energy Drinks laying around. Don’t bother with other objects unless I mention them.
  • If you’re using this to collect accolades make sure that you know what the requirements are for achieving them.
  • You can aim for the Ambassador Ending if you’re looking for a fast way to get your accolades. (which I suggest)
  • I suggest using one of your special weapons that you’ve unlocked. If you’d like to save time, use the Moon Gauntlets on bosses.
