I' ve done this before these are other scenes I have discovered but some I do not know the location.
1. If Ashley needs you to catch her while she jumps down a ladder or is climbing up one if you toggle the camera angle up her skirt she will call you a perve.
2. In the village cheif's house where you find the insignia key and the note on the bed walk out the door by the bed there will be a cutscene then walk back inside and ms. Wong will aid you in another cutscene once again starring the cheif.
3.At the lake monster place by the dock shoot the water with a shotgun you will hear a rumble keep doing this and there will be a cutscene. NOTE: Do NOT do this if you haven't saved you game in the house yet !!!
Here's something I thought would be a little fun to try out...
In Chapter 1-3, as you are heading off to fight Del Lago, head onto the dock where the boat is moored, but don't get onto the boat. Instead, get out any weapon and start shooting into the lake. After shooting enough times, Del Lago will emerge and devour Leon, along with half the dock.
If you knew that already, here's something I bet you didn't know. It's a glitch caused by triggering the same cut-scene. Fire into the lake, but don't do it from the dock. Shoot from further away. When Del Lago emerges to eat you, he will only eat the dock, as you are not standing on it. However, the game will count it as a death, and you will see the 'You Died' message, despite the fact that you can actually hear Leon getting up. Weird, eh?
Enter the room and after the salazaar tranformation cutscene move to the far right and shoot the arm coming out of the wall with the shotgun or tmp, then the arm will disappear for few seconds, this allows you to literally stand in one spot and attack salazaar at your own leisure.
Don't listen to those people who say that it taes alot of damage to krauser if you knife his head youll be dead before you do that but on the part that he turns into a plaga or whatever shot his legs and knife his face clean off but other times use a shotgun or a bb also on the part where he is on the other side use the rifle to shot him then he will run towards you then blow his face off kay
To unlock this powerful beast you need to earn five stars for all of the characters on all of the stages in The Mercenaries sub-game. Unlike the Infinite Launcher and Chicago Typewriter, this weapon needs upgrading to achieve it's full potential (99.0 Firepower and Infinite Ammo). Watch out, if you try and sell it to a merchant he won't offer you any cash for it!
To get the specialized gun you have to shoot ten blue medallions.
Aim for the legs. If they are running, they will practiclly trip.
You can get this cutscene when you are in the house with luis and gandos are breaking in - SPOILER BELOW -
Knife or shoot luis about 6 times and you will get a cutscene were luis says, "adios leon", and shoots him in the chest and kills him, he'll be breathing deep, be aware this obviously gets you a game over
Here's how you do something cool,
1.beat the game
2. Get 70,000pestas
4.upgrade it to the max
Now, it holds 22 bullets, reloads faster,and, it can kill those s.o.b's with 1 bullet
(disreguard this if the chainsaw-happy bozo's around!)
On your first time round this is extremely difficult unless you know what your doing.
First make sure you have a powerful gun a broken butterfly to get this without paying the merchant as soon as you get ashley in the castle head back past the bit where you met ada and carry on heading back through the door.... walk forward to the fountian and turn left then check the door send ashley in then open the big chest the broken butterfly will be in that this will only have it in if you don't have the broken butterfly!!
Then when your just about to face salazar talk to the merchant and get a rocket launcher if not upgrade the rifle whichever one you have then go through the door after the cutscene shoot the eye on the thing infront of you.
Pull out the rocket launcher or the rifle and take aim if done right you should beat salazar with if you hit him with the rocket launcher people with the rifle shoot the thing on his shoulder and just repeat you WILL do it.
After beating the game you get an infiinent rocket launcher.
P.S.the red9 rules.
at the first house in the beginning shoot all three birds to get money and a spinal
This works with all weapons that can have an upgraded capacity. After you run out of ammo when firing a weapon DON'T reload (if you have any spare ammo). Instead, make sure you have enough money to upgrade the weapon's capacity. When you encounter the next Merchant upgrade the capacity for that weapon. The weapon will not only have an increased capacity, but you would have had it completely topped up with ammo. So you get extra ammo when you upgrade the capacity. This is very helpful on the Professional difficulty stetting.
If you play as ada,you get the most suckest weapons ever.but if you improvise,you can either shoot someone in the knees or the face and they will flinch(do it with the punisher)and while they`re flinching,you can fan kick them to save some ammo.(NOTE:this only works best if you do it in ada`s mission,not the mercenaries thing)
Remember the part when the three men on the bridge throw a large boulder at you well after you dodge it you can go back up the hill and shoot them down.Sweet Sweet Revenge!
Before fighting any troll buy a rocket launcher from the merchant and just shoot the troll once and he should die.
P.S if you rescued the wolf he will help you!
(This only works on cultist ganados) When you are in the castle and you are fighting the cultist ganados, if you stun and get close to them you can perform a suplex move instead of a kick
Double tap the "A" button when you are opening doors
To tag a crow you have to have a fully upgraded mine launcher all the way to exclusive and when you see a crow or a bat launch a mine at it and it will blink on the animal and the animal might stumble while trying to fly
Here are a list of treasures you can combine with each other to sell them for more than you could get for them individually:
Beerstein + Red Catseye + Green Catseye + Yellow Catseye = 20,000 pasentas.
Elegent Mask + Red Gem + Purple Gem + Green Gem = 30,000 pasentas (I think, not entirely sure about this one)
Butterfly Lamp + Red Eye + Green Eye + Blue Eye = 32,000 pasentas.
Crown + Crown Jewel + Royal Insignia = Salazar Family Crown = 48,000 pasentas.
Golden Lynx + Red Stone of Faith + Green Stone of Judgement + Blue Stone of treason = 40,000 pasentas.
The Crown Jewel can only be obtained by killing Salazar's Assisstant in the sewers.
You can find two Butterfly Lamps and at least two of each colour eyes.
You can find two Elegant Masks (one in the Village and on in the Castle) but you can only find one of each gem.
These are all the treasures that combine, there are no others.
When you get400,000 pesas,buy the red 9,upgrade it to the max, and it's probrably the best handgun in the game!(this will only work when you have beaten the game,and you start the cleared spot on your memory card,and you're leon)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, on my data I have a chicago typewriter ,with a broken butterfly,semi auto rifle and mine thrower, fully customized. The chicago typewriter takes the place of a handgun and shotgun plus it has infinite amo allowing you to save tons of space. The mine thrower kind've takes the place of you're grenades. And the semi auto rifle is for long range shots. When you get enough cash though sell the rifle to get an infinite rocket launcher. And if you ever by some chance get really lucky and beat all mercenary games with all characters with a 5 star rating to unlock the hand cannon sell you're broken butterfly and get it. So basically you should try to get the chicago typewritter and infinite rocket launcher,with hand cannon,and mine thrower fully custom.( trust me using these items saves a ton of space, I have all the things you full you're case up with but I also have half a xl case for extra items that I may find)
After you plays as ashely and get back to Leon instead of running to the next part run backwards to the locked tower by the main gates. Using Ashely you can get in. Inside is a free broken butterfly. Keep it and customize it because it'll come in handy on the "it" on the island
Aright, first you must beat the game at least once, then you must beat mercanaries 5 stars on every character.
(This may take some time). After that go pick a new game file and at the beginning there will be a merchant jacket.
Get the handcannon since it's 0 psetas.
If you have the money, upgrade everything includeing exclusive. Then you will have Infinite ammo on the Handcannon!
Hope I helped!
If you want to save ammo or are really low on ammo you can use your knife. Or you can melee them when they get close but it only distracts them.
For those of you that don't know this,this is prety cool.Ok,when you start a new game,wait till you get to the village.Run into the house with fence around it if you want.Theres a tower on the other side of the village from where you entered.Go there,climb up the ladder and wait like 10 seconds.I don't know why they can't climb the ladder but instead they throw molotove cocktails at you through the window!
First unlock mercenaries and assignment ada beat mercenaries and unlock the handcannon buy that and fully tune it up next unlock the chicago typewriter get enough money to buy it finally collect everything you can and buy the infinite launcher it would also help to have 2 of every granade and a health can
