1.                               Introduction

===============================================================================


Originally released on the GameCube, Resident Evil 4 introduced a new style for
the series, with far more emphasis on action rather than on scares as in the
previous games. While initially a GameCube-exclusive title, Resident Evil 4 was
ported to the PlayStation 2 later on due to its immense popularity on the
GameCube. The game includes new features, with an extra mini-game for Ada in
addition to her Assignment Ada scenario. Named Separate Ways, this mini-game
explores Ada's involvement in a quest that was occuring at the same time as
Leon's main adventure. Capcom has exceeded expectations with the quality of the
graphics, and the new additions make this a great game.

2.1.                              Chapter 1-1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PATH TO VILLAGE

Leon is dropped off in the woods. You can try running back across the bridge or
talking to the men in the car, but in the end Leon's only choice is to head on
to the creepy looking house in the distance. Run down the left path and enter
the house. Run around the corner to meet a ganado, who takes a dislike to Leon
and attacks him with an axe. Hold R1 to aim and press X to shoot the ganado.
When he stumbles, press X to kick him. A cutscene plays where more of the
ganados arrive outside. Run up the steps and check the table behind Leon for
some handgun bullets (10). Run to the window and jump out to exit the house.

Leon will land in an area full of ganados. You can either shoot them, or run
from them. Shooting them gives ammunition or money which can be used to buy or
upgrade weapons from the weapons merchant throughout the game. Running from
them saves ammunition but reduces money. In open areas like this, I prefer to
run from them and save ammunition for interior areas. Before anything else
though, press triangle and check out the map. The village is a massive area,
but we're aiming for that bright red dot, which lists our current destination.

So exit the map by pressing triangle and run through the gate. Enter the first
hut on the right to find a typewriter and various other items. If you decided
to run from the ganados, keep an eye on the doorway to make sure they don't
decide to pay you a visit. In the hut then, move toward the two boxes on the
shelf and break them with the knife by holding L1 and pressing X. Grab the 1000
Ptas from the right box, and then break the box on the desk for a green herb.
Save your game by using the typewriter on the desk and then exit the hut.

Quarter turn right after exiting the hut and run down the path to find a wolf
caught in a trap. Press X to release the poor creature from the trap, and then
continue down the path after the signpost to arrive in an area with wires on
the trees. Run through the gap between the trees and avoid the ganado. Enter
the next hut at the left side of the path and destroy the boxes for Ptas. Grab
the green herb on the shelf and then exit the hut.

Quarter turn left and shoot the ganados at the start of the bridge. Run across
to the other side of the bridge and head down the slope. Walk to the hut on the
left and shoot the ganado that is lurking inside. To save on ammunition, always
kick a ganado when they stagger by pressing the X button. Grab the handgun ammo
(10) and crate items and then exit the hut. Quarter turn left and open the door
at the end of the path to enter the receive a call from Hunnigan.


VILLAGE

Read through the playing manual and then exit to add it to the village files.
You can return to the files menu at any time by accessing the start screen and
moving to files at the top. Run up the path in this new area and select look
from behind the tree to see the ganados at work in their village. Exit the view
and run straight into the village, where the ganados immediately start to
attack Leon. Check out the map by pressing triangle and run to the house with
two floors near the top-right corner of the town, just left of the tower.

After the cutscene, run up the steps and get the shotgun from the frame. Shoot
the boards in front of Leon and jump out the window. Dodge the ganados and then
kill the ganado with the chainsaw to receive 10,000 ptas. as a reward. Don't
worry about exploring the various huts yet, as the ganados will get in the way.
Just run from one side of the village to the other until the ganados all start
walking in one group toward Leon. When they are close, shoot with the shotgun.
Continue to shoot groups from one side of the village to the other, and
eventually a bell will ring.

In a mysterious cutscene, all of the ganados will head through a previously
locked door when the bell has finished ringing, leaving Leon alone to explore
the village. Enter the top-left hut for an incendiary grenade and random items.
Jump out the window and hit the crate for a red herb. Break the door at the
left side of the tower for handgun ammo (10) and money from downstairs and
random items from upstairs. Jump out the window near the table and run around
to the other side of the house to get the Spinel on the roof. Run back around
to the other side of the house and get the handgun ammo (10) from the chimney
on the red roof. Jump down from the house.

Enter the tower and climb up the ladder to get the shotgun shells (5) on the
desk at the top. Climb back down the ladder and exit the tower. Run up the path
near the bottom-left corner of the village and enter the hut on the right for a
flash grenade. The door outside the hut won't open, so run back down the path
toward the village. Run through the cow shed and open the crate on the other
side for a yellow herb. Run just left of here to find a red herb on a cart. Run
back through the cow shed, quarter turn right and break the first door on the
right. Enter the house to find money and shotgun shells (5).

Exit the house, quarter turn right and search the old shed at the side of the
house for a green herb. Look at the shack at the right side near the right side
of the tower for handgun ammo. Before heading up the path at the top-right
corner of the village, check the house at the left side of the path to find a
random item in a crate. Exit the house and run up the path, stopping to check
in the first house on the right for handgun ammo (10) and the alert order file.
Run to the end of the path and open the door to exit the village area.


FARM

Enter the first hut on the left to destroy the barrel for a random item and to
save at the typewriter. Exit the hut and jump over the fence in front to get
the blue medallion file from the tree. Shoot the blue medallion (1/15) on the
tree branch. This will alert the ganados to Leon's presence, so start by
shooting the one that exits the nearby barn. Watch out for more ganados that
may jump over the fence if you stand around. Run to the other side of the first
hut and shoot the stick to close the well. Shoot the pearl pendant hanging over
the big pot, then grab it and run into the barn for a barrel item. Look to the
window at the top of the barn and shoot the blue medallion (2/15).

Leave the barn through the other exit and shoot the blue medallion (3/15) on
the tree branch. Destroy the barrel behind the hut for an incendiary grenade.
Run back toward the barn and turn left to go through the gap in the fence. Look
toward the house on the right and shoot the blue medallion (4/15) in the
window. Enter the house and destroy the crates and barrels, then open both
cabinets for money and a spinel. Run through the back exit, half turn and shoot
the blue medallion (5/15) below the roof. Enter the house and climb the ladder
to shoot the ganado that may be near the pile of hay. Open the cabinet and take
the handgun ammo (10), then jump out the window to land on the walkway.

Run along to the end of the walkway and turn right at the end to shoot the blue
medallion (6/15) on the windmill. Jump down from the walkway to hit the crate
and shoot the blue medallion (7/15) above the left side of the big door. Enter
the small hut that the ladder is leaning on and hit the crate for a spinel and
the barrel for money. Exit the hut, climb up the ladder and run back along the
walkway. Jump off the top-left corner of the walkway and hit the crate to find
the beerstein. Run through the doorway and push the cupboard out of the way,
then run through the next doorway and jump over the fence on the right. Run
forward to the bottom-right corner of the farm and open the doors.


PATH OUTSIDE FARM

Run down the path and the ganados will push a boulder toward Leon. Repeatedly
tap X to sprint, then enter the required buttons when the command is displayed
to jump out of the way. Shoot the two spinels on the tunnel roof and continue
through the tunnel to the other side. Be careful in this area, as the ganados
carry dynamite that they throw at Leon. Shoot the first ganado that runs toward
Leon, then look toward the first hut on the left. Shoot the explosive device
and the trap, then run through the hut and shoot the ganado. Collect the spinel
from the crate and exit the hut by the front entrance.

Quarter turn left and run to the back of the house in front. Jump through the
window and shoot the three ganados inside the house. Get the hand grenade from
the table and then jump out the window to exit the house. Turn slightly left
after landing and shoot the bird's nest in the tree for a red catseye. Hit the
crate at the side of the house. Run around to the front of the house and kick
the door twice to open it. Get the handgun ammo (10) on the table and save the
game at the typewriter. Run through to the hall and shoot the explosive device.
Continue forward into the next room and shoot the device. Open the cabinet for
a green herb and get the money on the table. Push the shelf out of the way and
run down the new hall to open the closet at the end.

2.2.                              Chapter 1-2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


OUTSIDE CAMP

Leon wakes up handcuffed to the man he met at the end of the previous chapter.
A ganado with an axe enters the house with a massive axe. Quickly press L1 + R1
or square + X when the command appears to escape from the handcuffs and the
ganado. Get the handgun ammo from the shelf and then run down the hall to see
the merchant pass by outside. He's not an enemy, so don't worry. Continue down
the hall and get the rifle ammo (5) from the desk on the right.

Save at the typewriter and then exit the house. Break the barrel on the right
for a green herb. Run around the side of the house to talk to the merchant.
Sell the pearl pendant and spinels to the merchant, and buy the attache case M.
Tune up the handgun and the shotgun and then exit the shop. Continue forward to
the end of the path and break both barrels for a red herb and a random item.
Run back around to the front of the house and open the doors to enter the camp.


CAMP

Quarter turn right after entering the camp and shoot the enemies that walk up
the path toward Leon. Wait after the first set of enemies have gone, as another
set will rush up the path soon after. Run down the steps after both groups have
been defeated and ignore the first house on the left. As usual, it's best to
clear the area of enemies first of all before exploring for items. Shoot the
enemy on the bridge but don't cross it yet. Instead, run up the slope near the
bridge and shoot the dynamite ganado in the hideout at the top.

Look down to the left and shoot the ganado on the roof, then look down the
slope that Leon recently ran up to see a group of ganados. Wait until they get
near the top of the slope before shooting the red barrel. Defeat any other
ganados that are visible and then open the chest for the left half of the
emblem. Destroy both barrels to get the rifle ammo and a random item. Run down
the slope toward the first house that we passed on the way to the bridge and
get the shotgun shells (5) on the shelf. Enter the next room to get the handgun
ammo (10) and flash grenade from the locker. Climb up the ladder to the roof.
Shoot the ganado and open the chest to get the right half of the emblem.

Climb back down the ladder and jump out the window near the locker. Break the
barrel for a random item, then quarter turn right and run forward to the hut in
the distance. Break both barrels outside. Enter the hut and open the left
locker for money and the right locker for a yellow herb. Exit the hut and climb
up the ladder on the left. Climb up the ladder on the right and break the
barrel for shotgun shells (5). Jump down both ladders and look at the door on
the left to open the inventory. Combine the left emblem piece with the right
emblem piece and use the hexagaonal emblem on the slot. Open the door.


WAREHOUSE

Run down the path and hit the barrel in the structure on the left for a random
item. Continue right and break the barrel. Run back to the path and break the
barrel in front. Open the doors to enter the warehouse. Hit the barrel at the
corner and then open the next door. Shoot the ganados in this hall and run to
the end to break the barrel. Smash the right glass window, and jump through to
crouch behind the red dumpster. Keep crouching, and the two dynamite ganados
will kill the two normal ganados in the room. Stand up after they have thrown
the dynamite to shoot them.

With all of the ganados gone from this room, open the cabinet at the right side
of the room for handgun ammo (10). Knife the trap down on the left and open the
next cabinet on the right for a spinel. Break the two barrels as well for
random items. Avoid the traps and open the blue door at the side of the room.
Break the boards in front and jump through to get the elegant mask on the left.
Jump back through the window. Hit the barrel at the corner of the room for a
green herb and the barrel between the pipes for a random item.

Open the red door and look down the steps on the right to see a ganado staring
up at Leon. Run down the steps and shoot the ganado, then continue down the
path and shoot the next ganado. Jump down into the water and get the handgun
ammo (10), flash grenade and money. You can shoot the fish here for a normal
black bass which restores partial health and a large black bass that fully
restores health.  Climb back up the ladder and then the ladder on the left.

After exiting the well, look left and shoot the stick to close the well. Shoot
the brass pocket watch above the well and collect it. Enter the first hut on
the left and break the crate and barrel. Exit the hut and shoot the traps on
the floor and the device on the tree. Continue forward and run up the steps at
the end of the path. Follow the hall along to see a crystal ball on the door.
Check the ball and turn it right twice and down twice to open the door. Enter
the house and get the note from the bed, money from the wardrobe and insignia
key on the cabinet. Open the drawer for handgun ammo (10). Open the next door.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.3.                              Chapter 1-3
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


HOUSE

Open the cabinet on the left and get the green herb. Run down the steps at the
end of the hall, then quarter turn right and run over to the room at the right
side of the house. Open the cabinet near the book shelf for money, and break
the glass above the other cabinet to get the incendiary grenade. Run into the
kitchen and open the oven to collect the brown chicken egg. Before leaving, you
can enter the bathroom at the side of the steps, but apart from one startled
ganado there is nothing else in there. Exit the house.


PATH TO VILLAGE

Equip the shotgun, as there is a chainsaw ganado around the corner here that
can kill Leon in one hit. Shoot all of the enemies on the path and collect the
ruby that is dropped from the chainsaw ganado. Shoot the two enemies near the
shed, then enter the shed and get the red herb from the crate. Exit the shed
and shoot the bird's nest in the tree on the right for a spinel, and the bird's
nest on the left for TMP ammo (50). Shoot the crowd of enemies that run down
the path toward Leon, then unbar the door end of the path. Open the door.


VILLAGE

Enter the hut on the left and half turn to face the doorway. Lots of ganados
will come in through this door, so just wait here and shoot them all until no
more appear. Exit the hut and run down the path on the left, then turn right
and run past the fire to the mysterious door which the ganados entered when the
bell rang earlier on. Try to open the door, and use the insignia key to unlock
it. Open the door to exit the village.


TUNNEL

Get the crate item and handgun ammo (10) from the shelf. Save at the typewriter
and open the door. Break the barrel for TMP ammo (50) and shoot the light on
the ceiling for a spinel. Open the hatch and jump down into the tunnel below.
Run down the tunnel to the slightly larger area with a puddle on the floor.
Break the crate in the alcove, then shoot the light. Shoot the three glowing
items for two spinels and an elegant headdress. Continue down the tunnel and
stop at the merchant. You can sell the brass pocket watch, elegant headdress,
spinels and ruby, but you don't need to buy any new weapons yet. Open the door
and run down the next section of tunnel to climb up the ladder at the end.


GRAVEYARD

Exit the building and shoot the nest directly above Leon for a hand grenade.
Shoot the nest near the top of the path for rifle ammo (5), and then continue
forward to see a small cutscene of the graveyard. Walk toward the hut on the
right and shoot the ganado inside. Destroy both crates and get the handgun ammo
(10) on the table. Exit the hut and shoot the blue medallion (8/15) on the
first tree on the right. Run up the path and shoot the blue medallion (9/15) on
the tree on the left. Near the top of the path, look left and shoot the blue
medallion (10/15) on the tree branch. You can now either return to the merchant
in the tunnel for the new free gun, or wait to collect a more powerful version
of it from him later after shooting all fifteen medallions.

Run through the gateway and shoot the nest on the tree branch in front for an
incendiary grenade. Quarter turn left, continue forward and shoot the blue
medallion (11/15) on the tree near the fence. Half turn and run down the path
nearest the side of the church to shoot the two ganados. Run through the arch
and shoot the blue medallion (12/15) above the pedestal. Use the pedestal and
move the dial in four increments eight times and then in three increments five
times. Get the green catseye from the pedestal. Run back along the path of the
church and this time take the path leading down to the left to receive a call
from Hunnigan. Continue down the path to arrive on the bridge.

Shoot the enemies, then jump over the first gap and shoot the blue medallion
(13/15) on the beam in front of the hut. Half turn and shoot the blue medallion
(14/15) below the gap. Enter the hut and get the closure of the church file
from the table. Don't open the box on the table, as it contains a snake that
will attack Leon. Exit the hut and continue down the bridge to the second gap.
Before jumping the gap, look down to the right and shoot the blue medallion
(15/15). Continue down the bridge and shoot the enemy before opening the door.


CLEARING

Break the barrel on the right, then run along the left side of the area to grab
the spinel from the cart. Enter the first hut and get the handgun ammo (10) and
spinel from the table. Enter the third hut and get the handgun ammo (10). Exit
the hut and turn right. Break the two barrels before the door for random items.
Run down the steps on the right and open the blue door.


MERCHANT'S AREA

Run down the path and jump down the ladder at the end. Get the handgun ammo
(10) on top of the crate at the corner. Turn left before the typewriter and
follow the path along to a barrel. Run back to the typewriter to save the game,
and then approach the merchant. Acquire the free Punisher weapon, which will
have a firepower upgrade if all fifteen medallions were found. If only ten were
found, then the weapon will still be free, but at the lowest firepower. Sell
the handgun and spinels, and tune up the Punisher. Climb back up the ladder,
open the door at the end, then open the door on the right.


SWAMP

Enter the hut on the right and get the handgun ammo (10) from the table. Break
the barrel in the corner for a random item. Exit the hut and run down the path
on the right. As before, repeatedly tap X to sprint away from the boulder and
then press the displayed button combination at the end to jump out of the way.
Look up to the right and shoot the spinel on the cliff. Continue down the path
to arrive at the swamp. Shoot the first enemy and then walk toward the wire. If
the other enemy hasn't come out of the hut in front yet, fire a shot. When he
exits the hut, back away and he will walk into the wire explosive.

Run forward to the junction on the bridge and enter the hut on the left. Break
the barrel for TMP ammo (50) and the left crate for shotgun shells (5). The
right crate contains a snake. Jump down into the water and run left to find a
hand grenade at the corner of the swamp. Run back past the hut and turn right.
Shoot the wire on the left, run through the gap and follow the path around to
the slope leading up to the walkway. Grab the incendiary grenade on the bench
and half turn to shoot the bird's nest in the tree. Run back to the water and
get the antique pipe that fell from the bird's nest.

Run back up the slope to exit the water and follow the walkway to the right.
Shoot the explosive and enter the hut on the left at the end of the walkway.
Collect the handgun ammo (10) from the table, but leave the crate as it
contains a snake. Exit the hut and follow the path left to the doors at the
end. Open the doors to enter the lake area.


LAKE

Run up the path and go left at the junction. Watch the cutscene where Del Lago
appears, and then get the red herb by the tree on the left. Run back down the
path and go left at the junction. Shoot the nest in the tree on the left to get
the gold bangle w/ pearls. Enter the hut on the right to get the handgun ammo
(10) from the table and yellow herb from the crate. Enter the next hut at the
end of the path for a green herb and barrel item. Save at the typewriter, then
exit the hut and turn right to run down to the lake. Get on the boat and push
up on the left analog stick. Keep moving across the lake to find Del Lago.


BOSS BATTLE: DEL LAGO

The battle starts with Del Lago pulling Leon across the water in the boat. Hold
R1 and press X to shoot the harpoon at the monster. When he dives underwater,
quickly turn the boat to the side to avoid him when he emerges again. Hit him a
few more times with the harpoon, and Del Lago will dive again. This time, Leon
will automatically hold the harpoon. Wait until the music starts and the arrow
points in the direction of the enemy, then quickly turn and shoot him with the
harpoon when he gets near. Shoot a few more harpoons at Del Lago to defeat him.
In the cutscene, repeatedly press X when prompted to cut the rope.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


LAKE

Get the anonymous letter on the bed, the handgun ammo (10) on the table, the
flash grenade on the shelf and the crate item from the other table. Exit the
building and turn left to board the boat near the dock. Ride forward to the
blue lights in the distance to enter the merchant's cave.


MERCHANT'S CAVE

Run up the steps and push the crate on the left. Run right and break the two
barrels before climbing up the ladder at the corner. Push both crates out of
the way, and break the three barrels for money and a green gem. Shoot the light
on the same level as this platform, and a spinel will drop down. Jump down the
hole and get the rifle ammo (10) from the merchant's table. Climb back up the
ladder, run around the top walkway and jump down the next ladder. Run around
the bottom walkway to collect the spinel. Talk to the merchant and sell the
spinels, antique pipe and gold bangle w/ pearls. Board the boat.


LAKE

Ride to the dock at the north-west corner of the lake to find handgun ammo (10)
on the table. Save at the typewriter, then board the boat and return to the
dock at the south-east corner of the lake where the chapter started. Open the
doors at the corner of the area to enter the waterfall area.


WATERFALL

Run down the path to see the new parasite enemy, a ganado that has grown a
strange tentacle monster from its head. These new enemies can be difficult to
defeat, as once the ganado has been killed, the parasite takes over. Shooting
the ganado will do nothing, and the only way of defeating the enemy is to shoot
the parasite, which is tricky as they are quite small. Not all enemies will
grow these parasites, but they will appear occasionally from here on.

Shoot both enemies on this path and collect the 5000 ptas. dropped by the
parasite ganado. Run up the steps at the end of the path and jump over both of
the gaps. Follow the path down to the next two gaps, but don't jump them yet.
Instead, follow the path around the sharp corner on the right to collect the
hand grenade from the barrel. Run back, jump the two gaps and follow the path
to the rope at the end. Climb down the rope to and shoot the axe ganado on the
platform on the right. Climb up the ladder to this platform and break the
barrel for an incendiary grenade. Grab the handgun ammo (10) on the side and
then jump back down to the path below.

Follow the path right to the broken bridge at the end. Shoot the large crate
above the water and it will float down to the rail, allowing Leon to jump over
it to the next section of bridge. Follow the bridge right and shoot the amber
ring on the beam just in front of the waterfall. Collect the ring, climb up the
nearby ladder and break the barrel for a green herb. Look up and left on this
platform and shoot the crate on the spinning on the chain above. Jump back down
the ladder and shoot the next crate on the right. Return to the broken bridge
and jump over the two crates in the water.

Run up the path and break the barrel behind the ladder, and then climb up the
ladder. Operate the lever and select yes to pull it, which will reveal a cave
behind the waterfall. Jump down the ladder and then jump over the two crates in
the water to see a mass of enemies enter the area. Hop back over the two crates
and wait for the ganados to jump over to this path before shooting them. When
the ganados have gone, jump over the two crates and run to the newly revealed
cave. Check the hole at the end of the cave and get the round insignia to open
the door. Continue down the tunnel and open the next door. Shoot the torch for
a spinel, break the barrels for items and then use the boat.


MERCHANT'S CAVE

Nothing new to buy from the merchant here, but you can sell the spinel and
amber ring to him. Make sure that the shotgun is tuned up as well. Climb up the
ladder and then open the doors at the top of the slope to exit the cave. Break
both barrels and then run into the area on the left to start the boss battle.


BOSS BATTLE: EL GIGANTE

Start by backing away from this giant and throwing a flash grenade at him.
While he is stunned, shoot him with the shotgun. The wolf that Leon rescued
earlier will appear after El Gigante has been hit a few times. While the wolf
provides a distraction, El Gigante will still focus on Leon. Just try and stay
as far away as you can, by running from one side of the area, shooting him a
few times, and then running back to the other side. Soon a large parasite will
burst out of the giant's back. Run toward him and press X to climb him, then
repeatedly press X or square to cut the parasite.

If you don't manage to cut the parasite quickly enough, El Gigante will start
picking up various objects to throw at Leon. Just keep watching him as he picks
up an object, then run to the side as he raises his arm to avoid it. El Gigante
will also charge toward Leon at this stage, so quickly press the required
buttons when the prompt is displayed to dodge him. Continue shooting him until
he falls again, then repeatedly cut the parasite again to defeat El Gigante.

After the battle, pick up the various items from the huts and the 15000 ptas.
from the body of El Gigante. Get the red herb and handgun ammo (10) from the
shack at the side of the area, and the yellow herb from the cart on the right.
Run through the gateway on the other side of the area and break the barrel on
the left. Open the door to exit the area.


GRAVEYARD

Run up the bridge, jump the gap and enter the hut on the right for two crate
items. Exit the hut and jump over the next gap in the bridge. After the bridge,
a group of three Colmillos stare down the path toward Leon. Equip the shotgun
and shoot them, as they will attack Leon if he gets near. Run up the steps on
the right and look at the round hole on the front door of the church. Use the
round insignia on the hole and then open the door to enter the church.


CHURCH

Get the money on top of the cabinet at the back of the church. Run up the path
at the right side of the room and break the barrel for a flash grenade. Run up
the left path and climb up the ladder. Face the chandelier at the right side of
the path and jump onto it. Jump again to land on the path at the other side of
the room. Run right and hit the barrels at the end of the room for money and an
incendiary grenade. Run back to the corner and operate the panel.

Move the red disc twice, the green disc three times and the blue disc once.
Combine the colours to form the symbol and open the gates. Run down the path
and open the door at the side of the path to meet Ashley. Break all six barrels
in this room for a green herb, handgun ammo (10) and money. Exit the room and
jump down the ladder at the end of the path. Press X after landing to catch
Ashley. Continue forward and watch the cutscene to complete the chapter.

of the path and break both crates for money. Exit the hut and follow the path
left. Shoot the bird's nest above the doorway for money, then run through the
doorway and climb down the ladder to enter the merchant's tunnel.

Shoot the bear trap on the ground near the start of the path and then shoot the
ganados walking down the path. Break the crate in the hut on the left for
money. Continue up the path, knifing the bear traps along the way so that
Ashley doesn't get caught in one. Open the doors at the end of the path.


FARM

Run to the bin on the right and press R2 to tell Ashley to hide in it. Enter
the hut on the left and get the Sera and the 3rd Party file from the table.
Break the barrel and save at the typewriter. Exit the hut, shoot the ganado in
the barn on the left, then back out of the barn and look to the house on the
right. Shoot both ganados on the bridge, then enter the house below the bridge
and knife the bear traps on the floor. Break the barrels in the corner and then
open the cabinet for a green herb. Climb up the ladder and open the cabinet for
handgun ammo (10). Jump out the window, run left along the bridge and jump off
the end. Break the crate on the table, and the crate and barrel in the hut
under the ladder. Exit the hut and knife all of the bear traps on the floor,
then call Ashley by pressing R2. Wait for her to arrive at the end of the
bridge. Walk to the bottom of the ladder and press X to catch her, then
approach the door and piggyback by pressing X to open it.


BRIDGE

Run down the path and and cross the bridge to hear from Hunnigan. On the other
side of the bridge, a group of ganados appear and Leon and Ashley run into a
cabin. Inside, they meet Luis, and a battle against the ganados begins. Get the
shotgun shells (5) on the table, the yellow herb from the shelf and the red
herb on the chair. Push the wardrobes in front of the windows, and then make
your way up the steps. Get the green herb, incendiary grenade, hand grenade and
flash grenade. Run to the top of the steps and shoot all of the enemies that
appear. After a while, enemies will break in to the top floor of the house.
From here on, just concentrate on pushing all of the ladders on the windows and
shooting any ganados that get near. After a while, a cutscene will be shown
where the ganados leave, and the chapter will end.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


BRIDGE

Run up to the top of the steps and collect any items you may have missed. Run
back down the steps and open the door to exit the house. Turn left and grab the
TMP ammo (50) from the corner, and the handgun ammo (10) on the logs on the
left. The merchant has nothing new on offer, but you can enter the hut on the
left for the Two Routes file and a typewriter. Exit the hut, turn left and run
to the doorway between the two doors. Check the lever and move it either left
or right to open one of the doors. Run down the tunnel and open the door.


LEFT ROUTE

Shoot the first ganado that appears and then tell Ashley to hide in the bin.
Save the shotgun for now and equip the Red9 or Punisher. Wait for a group of
ganados to advance toward Leon, and then shoot the barrels on the wagon to
defeat them. Run around the corner on the right and follow the path to the
ladder at the end. Shoot the ganado lurking on the right, break the barrel and
climb up the ladder to the walkway. Turn left at the top and shoot all of the
ganados on the walkway. At the bin, follow the walkway right, break the barrel
for a green herb and shoot the ganado. When all of the enemies on the walkway
are gone, equip the shotgun and jump down to the central area.

Leon is greeted by two chainsaw ganados as soon as he lands, as well as some
normal ganados. Start by equipping the shotgun and running around the area in
circles until both of the chainsaw ganados are following Leon. Run across to
the other side of the area, half turn and then shoot them with the shotgun.
They are much tougher than the normal ganados, so just continue to stand and
shoot until they have been defeated. When the music has stopped, get the hand
grenade, ruby, money and camp key. Call Ashley by pressing R2. Catch her when
she arrives on the walkway, then use the camp key on the door.

Break the crate at the right side of the path for handgun ammo (10). Run to the
end of the path and tell Ashley to hide in the bin. This can be a difficult
battle here as there are so many ganados. Use the shotgun to shoot all of the
enemies, then press R2 to call Ashley. Run toward the red door and get the
handgun ammo (10) from the crate on the left and a random item from the barrel
on the right. Unbar the red door and open it to enter the merchant's area.


RIGHT ROUTE

Run down the path and El Gigante will appear. There is a boulder up on the left
that can be shot down so that it lands on El Gigante, but this will reduce the
amount of space you have to run away from him. If you have any flash grenades,
throw one of them at El Gigante to stun him and then shoot him with the shotgun
until he drops to his knees. Run toward him and press X to climb up, then keep
on pressing the required button to cut the parasite. Repeat this method twice
to defeat El Gigante. Collect the 15000 ptas. and continue down the path.

Enter the first hut and get the money, TMP ammo (50), handgun ammo (10), spinel
and incendiary grenade from the table. Exit the hut and break the crate on the

the hut and grab the handgun ammo (10) from the wood on the left. Kick the door
at the end of the area to open it, then use the old key on the green door at
the end of the path to enter the merchant's area.


MERCHANT'S AREA

Following either the left or the right route will lead to this area. If you
chose the left route, follow the path around to the right and take the next
steps on the right to find the merchant. If you chose the right route, run up
the steps on the left. Talk to the merchant and sell the spinels. Exit the
merchant, run down the steps and get the handgun ammo (10) on the bins at the
side of the hut. Enter the hut and get the Village's Last Defense file on the
locker at the back. Open the right locker and get the rifle ammo (10). Save at
the typewriter and then exit the hut.

Follow the path to find a green door at the top of the slope which can't be
opened yet. Continue following the path and run up the steps at the end. Break
the barrel at the right corner and then step onto the moving platform. Using
the handgun, shoot the ganados on the moving platforms on the right. Also watch
out for ganados on the stationary platforms on the left, as they will jump onto
Leon's platform if he doesn't shoot them first. Leon and Ashley will
automatically step off the platform at the factory.

Follow the path and open the door on the left. Open the lockers for handgun
ammo (10) and a flash grenade. Exit the room and run down the steps. Tell
Ashley to wait. Take the left path and shoot the ganado holding the explosive.
After it explodes, jump over the sandbags and climb up the ladder. Follow the
tunnel around the corner and shoot the parasite ganado. Open the chest at the
end of the path and get the yellow catseye, then exit the tunnel and tell
Ashley to follow. Run down the steps to find another merchant. Get the handgun
ammo (10), TMP ammo (50) and shotgun shells (10) from the crate. Save at the
typewriter and then open the door at the end of the path.


BOSS BATTLE: BITORES MENDEZ

Follow the path down to the warehouse to meet Bitores, who locks the doors
behind Leon and tries to grab him. When this happens, quickly enter the correct
button combination at the prompt to dodge out of the way. Bitores will start
walking toward Leon, so equip the shotgun or rifle and keep shooting at the
spine. There is also a red barrel near the ladder at the left side of the room
that will explode when hit. If you climb up to the top floor and can get
Bitores close enough, hit the barrel. In the second part of the battle, just
the upper half of Bitores will attack. Shoot Bitores when he hangs from the
beams, and continue to shoot him when he drops to the floor to defeat him.

Get the 30000 ptas., false eye, green herb, shotgun shells (5), handgun ammo
(10), TMP ammo (50) and incendiary grenade from the bottom floor, and the red

follow the path around to the other side of the factory. Step onto one of the
moving platform to return to the top section of the factory. Run down the steps
and use the false eye on the door at the left side of the path. Open the door.


CASTLE EXTERIOR

Equip the rifle but don't shoot the three ganados at the top of the path. Walk
up the path and a truck will start to drive down it. Quickly use the rifle to
shoot the driver, and the truck will crash into the wall. Run up the path and
take the money from the truck. Move past the truck and then half turn to shoot
the group of ganados that exit it. Run up to the top of the path and break the
two barrels on the left for the velvet blue. Keep following the path along
toward the castle to complete the chapter.

CASTLE INTERIOR

After the call from Hunnigan, open the cabinet on the right for money and check
the table for shotgun shells (5). Check the wall and get the platinum sword.
Run up the steps and quickly shoot the robed ganados up here. Soon after, a
large group of robed ganados will burst through the door, and quite a few of
them have a new larger form of parasite that Leon must contend with as well.

With the initial two enemies shot, run into a corner on the top floor away from
the steps and shoot any of the enemies that appear. Don't let them get too
near, as chances are they may have a parasite that will attack. With all of the
enemies defeated, break the crates for a spinel and open the cabinet for a red
herb. Get the golden sword from the wall, then check the wall and use the
platinum sword on it. Run down the steps and use the golden sword on the wall.

the cell to see the El Garrador enemy. Open the cell door and enter it to see
El Garrador break out of his chains. Quickly half turn and run out of the cell,
then start walking over to the other side of the room. El Garrador can't see
Leon, but will be able to follow him if he runs. The aim in this battle is to
shoot the parasite on El Garrador's back. You can shoot the bell to make him
walk toward them, but make sure you shoot the parasite before he gets to the
bell or he will destroy it. Grab the 15000 ptas. after he has been defeated,
then enter the cell and pull the lever. Run up the steps to exit the prison.

Turn left in the hall and shoot the ganados that appear. Run around the corner
and shoot the ganados behind the horse statues. Run through the doorway and
shoot the enemies on the left, then grab the handgun ammo (10) between the
pillars and open the big doors ant the end of the hall. Enemies with shields

enemy behind the shield to defeat them in one shot. Shoot all of the enemies
that appear and then run down to the middle of the hall. Get the money from the
table on the right, break the pots on the left for a green herb and money, and

CASTLE INTERIOR

Half turn and enter the door at the left side of the room. Break the barrels
for money and a flash grenade, then jump down the ladder to enter the sewer.


SEWER

Run down the tunnel to hear a door open and the sound of running feet. This is
the sound of the novistador, massive insects that Salazar released into the
sewers. There are plenty to contend with in this sewer, and they all have the
power to become nearly invisible. Run around the first corner but don't go any
further just yet. Equip the snifle and zoom in on the second corner to see a
very faint outline of a novistador. Shoot it, and collect the item that it
drops. Run around the next corner to see a rail at the side with water down
below. Look over the rail and shoot the novistador (easy difficulty) or three
novistadors (normal and professional difficulty) in the corner of the water.

Jump down the ladder and collect the velvet blue, handgun ammo (10), green eye
and TMP ammo (50). Climb up the next ladder and open the door on the left. Walk
forward and kill the first novistador that appears. A second will burst out of
the cell on the left, so shoot that one as well. Open the far-right cell and
get the yellow herb. Open the left cells for shotgun shells (5), Luis' Memo and
an incendiary grenade. Run down the hall at the side of the room. On normal and
professional difficulties there will be a novistador here, so quickly shoot it.

enter the water control room. Destroy the crates for a green herb and shotgun
shells (5), and open the chest for the butterfly lamp.

Check the drainage valve and select yes to drain the water. Exit the room, turn
the corner and shoot the novistadors. Run back through the destroyed cell to
return to the main part of the room. On normal and professional difficulties,
shoot the novistador in the cell, and the novistador that drops down from the
hole in the ceiling. Jump down the ladder on the left into the water and kick
open the gate in front. Quickly half turn and shoot the novistador that appears
behind Leon. Collect the green eye, then half turn again and run up the steps.
Break the barrels on the left for a green herb. Run up the next set of steps
and open the door. Dodge the four pendulums in this room and get the velvet
blue on the right. Open the door and climb up the ladder. Break the barrels on
the left for a spinel and then open the door to exit the sewer.

bottom floor he will start firing at Leon from behind a gatling gun. If this
does happen, open the door at the top of the steps and look around the edge of
the doorway to see the gatling gun. Don't look too far, or he will be able to
shoot Leon. Quickly equip the rifle and shoot the ganado to stop him firing.

down the steps to see the garden maze. If you are playing on easy difficulty,
go through the doorway on the right to complete the chapter, as there will be

Remember, if Leon walks, El Garrador won't know where he is. Quickly equip the
shotgun and shoot the lock on either door of the cage until it breaks off. Open
the door and run around the outside of the cage to shoot the ganados that are
surrounding it. After they are gone, resume walking to avoid being traced by El
Garrador. As before, equip the sniper rifle and shoot the parasite on his back
to defeat him. Collect the 15000 ptas. that he drops, and open the chest in the

the rifle to shoot the three restraints holding Ashley. A group of ganados will
enter the room with the intention of taking Ashley away, so shoot any that get

all of them, and Ashley will collect the key from where the red robed ganado
fell. She unlocks the door and continues through the castle on her own.


CASTLE INTERIOR (ASHLEY)

Ashley has no weapons, so her only defense against enemies in this section is
to either run from them, or to throw lamps that she finds at them. Get the

the handgun ammo (10) on the table. Run down the cave and shoot the red barrel
at the end to destroy the rock. Run into the next area and open the chest at
the top of the ledge for a hand grenade. Run back up the cave and follow the
path around to the left to collect a yellow herb. Exit the cave.

Follow the path and shoot both ganados. Run behind the crates and use the rifle
to shoot the dynamite ganado on the cliff and the red barrel on the bridge. Run
out from behind the crates and run up the steep path in the cave on the left.

collect the rifle ammo (5) on the desk. Return to the main room and enter the
small room at the top-right corner. Open the door for the second sample.


THIRD SAMPLE

Exit the freezer and open the cabinet on the right for a red herb. Turn right
and run down the hall to open the door at the end. Collect the handgun ammo
(10) on the box at the end of the hall, then open the door on the right and
shoot both ganados in the room on the other side. Get the rifle ammo (5) on the
desk at the corner of the room. Open the right door and walk toward the top of
the ladder to see a group of ganados in the waste disposal area.

Throw a hand grenade down into the middle of the group and then use the rifle
to shoot the machine gun ganado and crossbow ganado. Jump down the ladder and
run around the dumpster on the right to collect the red herb. Open the door and
get the green herb on the box, then run up the steps and shoot the stun rod
ganado. Shoot both ganados in the room, and operate the control panel at the
left side of the room to unlock the door. Shoot the group of ganados that
enters the room, then open the unlocked door and run down the hall.

Collect the yellow herb on the right at the first corner, and open the red

ganado through the bars in the door. Open the door and enter the room to
collect the handgun ammo (10) on the table. Run right around the corner and
shoot the stun rod ganado, then collect the TMP ammo (25) from the box on the
left. Turn right and open the case for the third sample.


FOURTH SAMPLE

Exit the room and open the next door on the right. Run down the steps on the
right and open the door at the end of the hall. Get the TMP ammo (25) on the
table and use the TMP to shoot the five enemies in this room. Get the TMP ammo
(25) from the top floor, and the handgun ammo (10) and red herb from the bottom
floor. Try and open the door on the bottom floor to see a group of enemies
enter on the top floor. Equip the rifle and shoot the machine gun ganado and
shield ganados, then use the punisher on the remaining ganados.

Open the bottom door and shoot the ganados on the other side. Open the door on

items, Krauser will burst out of the base and run toward Ada.

Quickly turn toward Krauser and throw a hand grenade at him. When he drops down
to one knee, shoot him with the rifle and then run across to the other side of
the bridge. Hand grenades will be harder to use against Krauser from this point
on as he moves so fast, but if you have any left, still try and throw them at
him to stun him. If you run out of grenades, shoot Krauser's feet with the TMP.
Use either method until he drops down to one knee, then keep shooting him with
the TMP until he throws a flash grenade. Collect the fifth plaga sample that he

5.                              The Mercenaries

===============================================================================


The goal of the The Mercenaries mini-game is to run through a chosen location
and shoot as many enemies as possible before the time runs out. Various items
are strewn about the areas, including time vials that extend the time, and
bonus time vials which give more points per kill in a thirty second time limit.
The points are totalled at the end of every round, and a star rank is given.
Initially there is only one character (Leon) to choose from and four locations.
If you manage to achieve over 30,000 points (four stars) in a location, a new
character can be chosen from the character selection screen. Score over 60,000
points (five stars) in each location with all five of the characters to unlock
the extremely powerful handcannon weapon to use in the main game.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.1.                                Village
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Run behind the tower at the top-right corner of the map and collect the 90 sec.
time vial. Ignore the ganados for now, as at this early stage there won't be
too many to worry about. Run out of this area behind the tower and continue
past the insignia door to the barn at the bottom-right corner, which contains a
30 sec. time vial and a red herb in a barrel. Exit the barn and jump through
the window in front to land in a room with a 90 sec. time vial and a chest.
Don't open the chest yet. Break the barrel for a green herb and wait in this
room until enemies start to enter. When they do, now is the time to open the
chest for the 30 sec. bonus vial. Quickly shoot as many of the enemies that
have entered the room as possible. Open the door to the next room and shoot the
enemies in here as well. When the time limit expires, get ammo from the barrel
on the floor and then open the next door to exit the house.

Turn slightly right and run back to the tower at the top-right corner, but this
time climb up the ladder and get the green herb and hand grenade at the top.
Jump back down the ladder and turn right after exiting the tower. Try and avoid
the ganados and enter the first house on the right. Break the two barrels under
the steps for a flash grenade and ammo. Run back to the front door of the house
and kill any ganados that may have entered. Using that hand grenade found at
the top of the tower works well if there is a large group of ganados there. Now
run up to the top floor of the house and collect the hand grenade from the
glass case and the green herb on the bed. There is nothing else to collect in
this house, so jump over the window near the steps.

Turn right on the platform outside the house and follow it around to the barrel
at the corner, which contains a hand grenade. Half turn and run back to the
corner of the platform, jumping down to land in front of a chest. Wait until a
group of enemies are near before opening the chest for a bonus vial. There is a
red barrel nearby, so lure the enemies toward it and then shoot the barrel once
to kill them all. With the time still counting down, shoot as many enemies as
possible before the time expires to get more points. Jump through the window
opposite the chest to enter a big house. Break both crates on the table for
ammo and a green herb. Also break the barrel for ammo. Exit the house through
the door that has not been used yet.

Around about this time, the sound of a chainsaw may echo through the village.
This is the sound of the chainsaw ganado, and there are two of them. If they
hit your character even once with the chainsaw then it's game over. They move
quickly, so try not to get caught in a dead end. The best place in the level to
face them is in the house at the top-left corner of the map. Collect the 90
sec. time vial in here and then climb up the ladder to see a red chest on the
right, which as usual contains a bonus vial and shouldn't be opened until a
group of enemies have appeared. Back to the chainsaw ganados, which should by
now have entered the house and started climbing up the ladder. Just walk to the
top of the ladder and knock it down it to make them fall off.

Depending on how high you want your score to be in the end, you can simply stay
at the top of the ladder and push the ladder or shoot the various enemies that
enter the house, or you can choose to continue exploring the level. I've found
that often so many enemies will enter the house that it's not necessary to even
leave the house, and provided enough time is left you can achieve a five-star
ranking just by remaining safe up on the platform and shooting. And other times
not enough enemies will enter the house, so more exploring has to be done first
in order to gain some more time and ammunition before returning to the house.
Assuming that the second scenario has happened, finish off the chainsaw ganados
and any other enemies down below, then jump down and exit the house.

Run straight forward after leaving the top-left house and go up the long path
toward the hut at the bottom-left corner of the map. Here you can find two
crates on a table that contain a red herb and ammo. Exit this hut and turn
slightly right to run down the next path at the side of the fence. Get the 30
sec. bonus vial near the wagon, and break the crate on the left for some ammo.
Run right from the crate and enter the cow barn through the entrance at the
front to find a barrel that contains ammo at the back. A very useful red
barrel can be found in this cow barn, so if you have any chainsaw ganados or
groups of normal ganados after you, shoot the barrel when they are near.

With more items and a few more seconds added to the time, run out of the cow
barn into the main part of the village and shoot any ganados that are there.
When you hear the familiar sound of a chainsaw, run back to the house at the
top-left corner of the map and climb back up the ladder. With all items and
vials found in the level, the best thing to do now is to stay safe up on this
platform and just shoot the enemies down below. Remember to open the red chest
up here for a bonus vial if you haven't already collected it. From here on,
just keep shooting at the enemies that enter the house until the level ends.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.2.                                Castle
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Unlike all of the other levels the castle only has one start point, which is in
a tower at the bottom of the level. Half turn and break both barrels for ammo
and a green herb. Exit the tower and run up the steps to see a group of ganados
on either side. Turn right and stay close to the wall at the left side of the
ganados to avoid them. They may reach out, but as long as you keep running they
will miss. Collect the 50 sec. time vial, and break both barrels for a flash
grenade and ammo. Half turn to see that the two groups of ganados are steadily
making the way toward our character. Run past all of them by staying left, then
run up the steps on the right and collect the 90 sec. time vial at the top. Hit
the three barrels for an incendiary grenade, ammo and a green herb.

If you have managed to complete the above paragraph quickly, then you should be
able to run back down the steps and open the door in front without any bother.
If you were slow by a few seconds however, then the group of ganados that were
down there will have already started walking up the steps. Either shoot all of
the ganados, or lure them toward the red barrel at the bottom of the steps and
then shoot it to kill many of them. The red barrel can come in very handy when
dealing with the El Garrador later in the level though, so you may not want to
shoot it unless you are playing as a character like Krauser. Either way, open
the door near the bottom of the steps to continue the level.

Run up the steps inside the castle and half turn left at the top. Break the two
barrels at the corner of the room for ammo and a hand grenade. Turn right and
get the green herb on the table, then run out the doorway to exit the building.
Run across the bridge to the tower on the other side. If you got to this point
fast enough, the crossbow ganados will not appear along the way. Enter the
tower for a 90 sec. time vial and a red chest that contains a bonus vial. If
your character has a rifle then open this chest and zoom in to shoot enemies as
they appear in the distance. If not, open the chest anyway and run back into
the castle. If you didn't shoot the group of ganados earlier on, they will be
making their way up the steps so you can shoot them now for bonus points.

Collect the green herb on the table if you missed it earlier and then run up
the next set of steps to the room at the top. Get the green herb in front, the
50 sec. time vial in the middle of the room and the ammo from the barrel at the
corner of the room. There is also another red chest here, but you may want to
wait for a group of enemies to enter the room before opening it. Open the door
when ready to continue and get the red herb on the ground near the wall. There
is a gap in the wall on the right that you can use to jump down, but it only
leads back to an earlier section of the level so there's no need to use it. If
you missed the 90 sec. bonus vial from earlier though, the gap is the quickest
way back down there to collect it. When ready, open the double doors.

Collect the 50 sec. time vial in front and then break the barrel for ammo. Run
right to see a small cutscene where scythe ganados appear from a large door. Go
down the right steps first of all to collect a green herb near the wall. Shoot
the barrel at the end for a hand grenade, then run around to the left to stand
in front of the large door. Many enemies will appear at this point, so keep on
shooting all of them, stopping only to turn around to make sure that no enemies
are behind. Make sure that the red barrels are not touched, as these can be
very effective to use against the El Garrador when he appears.

Now the large door that the group of scythe ganados came out of can be entered,
but there is one big disadvantage in that it makes an El Garrador appear. The
advantages are a first aid spray, a time vial, a bonus vial, ammo, a green
herb. So it depends on how high your health is and how much time is remaining
whether you should go in there or not. If your health is fine and the time is
still high, El Garrador may still appear, but at least you can spend this time
getting as many points as possible by shooting all of the enemies. Remember to
shoot the crossbow ganados that may have appeared over by the tower.

El Garrador behaves exactly as he does in the main game, by being able to hear
a character when they run, but not able to track them when they stand still or
walk. Unfortunately there are so many other enemies attacking that it can be
very difficult to just walk around. Leon will have the most trouble here with
only a shotgun as his most powerful weapon. Remember that the parasite on the
back of El Garrador has to be hit, so he must be stunned first. This can be
done by throwing a grenade or shooting a red barrel when he is near. From here
either shoot the parasite with a shotgun or throw a hand grenade.

Other characters are slightly better off against the El Garrador, with Ada
having a rifle which can be used on the parasite, and Hunk having a TMP which
can be used to clear all of the other enemies out the way quickly. Hunk also
starts with three grenades, which can all be used to great effect against the
El Garrador. Wesker has things even easier with not only a semi-auto rifle but
also a Killer7. Wesker's Killer7 is twice as powerful as his semi-auto rifle,
so this is definitely the recommended weapon to use against the El Garrador.
And finally there is Krauser. His arm attack is so powerful that it can kill an
El Garrador as well as any other enemies that stand in the way in one hit.

5.3.                                 Base
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


With random start points, start by running over to the doors at the bottom-left
corner of the level. They won't open, but it gives a good location to start the
walkthrough. Break the first crate on the right for ammo, then turn left and
climb up the ladder in front of the building. Run into the hut at the top of
the ladder and break the barrel for a red herb. It is a good idea to wait in
this hut and shoot any of the enemies that appear at the doorway. When all is
quiet, exit the hut and run around to the left to find a 30 sec. time vial.
Break the crate on the left for ammo, then run to the left side of the platform
and climb up the next ladder. Break the barrel for a first aid spray.

Run over the bridge and collect the 30 sec. time vial on the other side. Half
turn and run to the bottom-right corner of the platform for another 30 sec.
time vial. Climb up the nearby ladder to arrive on the highest section of the
platform. Open the red chest for a bonus vial, which can come in very useful
here as you may have a mass of ganados after you at this point. Be sure to also
shoot the enemies that are climbing up the ladders. Collect the 30 sec. time
vial on the other side of the bridge and then break the nearby crate for a
green herb. With all of the items and vials found on the three platforms, drop
back down the ladders to return to the start point.

Around this time, the machine gun ganado will appear. Run left toward the red
barrel and check to see if he is there. If he is, then he will start shooting
for a few seconds. After he stops shooting, he will walk toward our character.
Lure him toward the red barrel and then shoot it when he gets near. He will not
be killed by this, so throw any grenades you have and use your most powerful
weapons against him. Krauser can finish him off in one move by using his arm
attack. After he has been defeated, collect the 30 sec. time vial and return
once again to the start of the level. This time, enter the building.

Go through the other doorway to exit the building and then break the barrel on
the left for a green herb. Half turn and collect the 30 sec. time vial, then
continue forward and run down the tunnel, breaking the barrel on the way for a
green herb. Collect the 30 sec. time vial after exiting the tunnel and then run
up the steps. Collect the 30 sec. time vial on the platform, then half turn and
break the barrel on the other side of this small area for ammo. Break the crate
at the right side of the chest for a green herb. Wait for a group of enemies to
arrive in this area before opening the red chest. As soon as you do this the
bonus vial time will start, so kill as many enemies as possible here.

When the bonus time has expired, drop down the ladder near the chest and break
the barrel in front for ammo. Collect the 30 sec. time vial, then run down the
tunnel on the left and break the barrel for a green herb. Climb up the ladder
straight in front, then the next ladder on the right. Break the barrel here for
a first aid spray, and collect the 30 sec. time vial. This is a good place to
shoot all the enemies that were following as they climb up the ladder. The
machine gun ganado can also be shot at from this location. Jump back down both
ladders when ready to continue, then run back through the tunnel in front and
climb up the ladder at the end of the path.

Half turn right and run toward the barrel at the bottom of the long set of
steps and break it for ammo. Run up the first small section of the steps and
follow the path along to a barrel that contains a hand grenade. Run back to the
steps and this time take the steps up on the left. Get the 30 sec. time vial at
the top and then use the zipline to land in a small area with a chest. Open the
chest and then drop down off the ledge to collect a 30 sec. time vial. Wait
until a group of ganados has gathered near the red barrel down on the right
before shooting the barrel. Keep shooting any remaining enemies in the area
below from this location until the bonus time has expired.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.4.                                Island 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The island has a few restart points, although for the purpose of this section
the one that we want is on the small platform near the ladder. The sound of a
chainsaw can be heard from down below. Start by climbing up the ladder and
collecting the 30 sec. time vial on the highest platform. Break the barrel for
a hand grenade, then run to the bottom-right corner of this platform and face
toward the ladder. A massive ganado known as Dr. Salvador will jump up onto the
platform. Fast and very strong, this is a new enemy not encountered in the main
game. He will follow a character throughout the entire level.

If playing as Leon or Ada, that hand grenade that you found in the barrel on
this platform should be thrown at Dr. Salvador very quickly. This should stun
him long enough to able Leon to use the shotgun, or Ada to use the rifle. Aim
for the head when shooting Dr. Salvador, and before long he will be defeated.
Hunk and Wesker have an easier time as they already start equipped with hand
grenades, so you can throw a few at Dr. Salvador. Remember not to throw one
when he is stunned though, as it will have no effect. As usual, Krauser has the
easiest time out of anyone and can kill Dr. Salvador in one arm attack.

Jump off the east side of the platform when ready to continue, then the west
side of the next platform to land on a platform with a 30 sec. time vial. Jump
off the west side of this lowest platform to land on the floor. Run forward to
collect the 30 sec. time vial. Break the barrel in front for ammo, then go
through the door on the right and collect the green herb, flash grenade, red
herb and 30 sec. time vial from this room. There is also a red barrel to fire
at in this room if a large group of ganados is following.

Open the door to exit the room and collect the 30 sec. time vial outside. Get
the green herb in front and then continue forward to find a first aid spray on
top of a crate. Turn right and run to the middle of the area for another 30
sec. time vial. Turn right and get the ammo on top of the crate, green herb a
little further on and 30 sec. time vial at the end of the path. There is also a
red barrel and a red chest containing a bonus vial in this area.

Run up the steps at the top-right corner of the area near to where the first
aid spray was found, and break the crate for a red herb. Also collect the ammo
on the shelf on the right. Open the door to enter a room with a red chest that
contains a bonus vial. A 30 sec. time vial can also be found in this room. Jump
out of the window on the right for another 30 sec. time vial. Run through the
doorway on the left and break the barrel on the left for a hand grenade. Half
turn and collect the green herb on the boxes. Continue forward to the end of
the next room to find a flash grenade and ammo.

Run through the doorway to exit this room and break the barrel on the left for
a green herb. Run up the steps to find a 30 sec. time vial on the platform.
Quarter turn left and jump down from the platform, then quarter turn left again
and climb up the ladder onto the roof of the building. Run along the roof to
find a 60 sec. time vial and a barrel that contains a green herb. Ammo sits on
the last post on the left before the zipline. If Dr. Salvador appears at this
point, then you can stand under the zipline and shoot him until gets near. If
he gets too close, then just slide down the zipline.

After landing on the roof of the next building, characters that have rifles can
attempt to shoot Salvador from his position on the previous roof. While he can
still be hit from a distance with normal weapons, other characters may be best
waiting on this roof until he appears. Before he does, collect the ammo, first
aid spray from the barrel and the 60 sec. time vial. When Dr. Salvador does
appear on the roof, wait until he gets near the red barrel before shooting it.
Throw a hand grenade soon after he becomes stunned so it hits him after he
starts moving again. From here just use normal weapons to defeat him.

7.                                Weapon List

===============================================================================


+---------+
|  KNIFE  |
+---------+

Available at the start of the game, the knife is actually a very good weapon
that can save on using a lot of ammo. Shoot an enemy like a ganado in the leg
and they will fall to the floor. Although you can finish them off by shooting
them while on the floor, aim down and keep attacking with the knife. They may
start to stand up, but keep on attacking and more often than not they will
drop down. If they do stand all the way up, just back away until they have a
chance to attack and then attack normally with the handgun or knife again.

Aside from attacking enemies, the knife is also useful when it comes to opening
crates. Sure you can shoot crates to open them, but a single strike with the
knife does just as good a job. Some crates contain snakes which jump out and
bite Leon after a few seconds, and a knife is very effective in killing these
pesky creatures before they strike. Bear traps which appear in certain areas
of the game can also be triggered safely by using the knife.


+-----------+
|  HANDGUN  |
+-----------+

Available at the start of the game, the handgun is useful against individual 
enemies that appear up to the castle section, but is not so good against groups
of enemies and is not recommended to use against bosses. The typical enemy in
the first few chapters is the ganado, and sometimes you may find yourself
having to fight against groups of them with the handgun.

When groups appear, shoot the first one in the leg and then quickly walk up to
him until the kick command is displayed. As soon as you press X at the kick
command, the attacks of the other enemies will miss Leon (The same thing also
happens when Leon  climbs up and down ladders), and Leon will also kick any
ganados that were near out of the way. This should give enough time to back up
and shoot them all, or repeat the kick command again.

LEVEL 1      1.0            0.47            1.73            10

EXCLUSIVE    Increases the chance of critical headshots by 5 times. (57000)


+--------+
|  RED9  |
+--------+

Available from the merchant in chapter 2-2. This is the most powerful handgun
in the game, with an exclusive upgrade that is more powerful than the shotgun
at level 4 firepower. This does mean that other statistics are slightly worse
than other handguns however, as the firing speed and reload speed is higher and
the gun also holds less ammo. As long as the red9 is kept reloaded, its power
makes this one of the best handguns to use in the castle and on the island.


             FIREPOWER      FIRING SPEED    RELOAD SPEED    CAPACITY

LEVEL 1      1.6            0.53            2.37            8

LEVEL 6      3.7 (45000)    ----            ----            22 (22000)
EXCLUSIVE    Increases the firepower to 6.5. (80000)


+------------+
|  PUNISHER  |
+------------+

The Punisher can be found for free by talking to the merchant in chapter 1-3
after ten blue medallions have been found. If all fifteen blue medallions are
found, then the Punisher comes with a free level 2 firepower upgrade. The gun
can also be bought normally from the merchant in chapter 2-3. Apart from a
slightly lower reload speed the Punisher actually has worse firepower than the
handgun. It's worth buying from the merchant just to sell, but remember to get
the upgrade first (fifteen medallions) as it can be sold for more money.

EXCLUSIVE    This ammo will penetrate up to 5 bodies. (40000)


+-------------+
|  BLACKTAIL  |
+-------------+

Available from the merchant in chapter 3-1. This is a reasonable handgun that
has a high ammo capacity. At level 3, it also has the quickest firing speed
out of all other handguns. The reload speed is average, but the firepower is
high and is beaten only by the Red9 in this statistic. The Blacktail and the
Red9 are the two recommended handguns to use in the game, but which one is
used depends on whether you want power (Red9) or speed (Blacktail).


             FIREPOWER      FIRING SPEED    RELOAD SPEED    CAPACITY

LEVEL 1      1.6            0.47            1.70            15

EXCLUSIVE    Increases the firepower to 4.5. (80000)


+-----------+
|  MATILDA  |
+-----------+

Available from the merchant at the start of a new round. With less firepower
than the Blacktail and Red9, a below-average firing speed and an average reload
speed, the only strong point about this gun is its ammo capacity. Despite being
able to hold 100 bullets when upgraded to exclusive, this special handgun is
still easily beaten in all other aspects by the Blactail and the Red9.

EXCLUSIVE    Increases the ammo capacity to 100. (35000)


+--------------------+
|  BROKEN BUTTERFLY  |
+--------------------+

Although the Broken Butterfly can be bought as early as chapter 3-1, it is
best to wait until chapter 4-1 as this weapon can be found for free. The
immense firepower of this weapon means that is best used against bosses. It
can be used on normal enemies to great effect, but due to the limited ammo
available for the gun it is probably best to save it only for boss battles.
When fully upgraded, it is the second most powerful gun in the game.

+-----------+

Available from the merchant in chapter 5-1, this weapon is unique in that it
has no exclusive upgrade. The firepower, capacity and reload speed is initially
better than that of the Broken Butterfly, although the firepower on the Broken
Butterfly can eventually be upgraded beyond the extent of the Killer7. With
both weapons upgraded fully, the reload speed on the Killer7 remains over one
second faster than the Broken Butterfly and holds two more bullets.

+--------------+
|  HANDCANNON  |
+--------------+

Unlocked by gaining five stars with all four characters on all four levels in
The Mercenaries mode. This is the most powerful weapon in the game by far, but
is also the most expensive to upgrade. To start with the weapon only holds
three bullets, but even then at its minimum level the gun is more powerful than
all but two other guns at their maximum level. Initially best used occasionally
due to the rarity of the ammo, the Handcannon becomes more useful after 790000
ptas. have been spent upgrading to exclusive, giving it infinite ammo.

+-----------+
|  SHOTGUN  |
+-----------+

Available at the start of the game (on easy difficulty) or on the top floor of
the building near the tower in the village in chapter 1-1 (on normal and pro
difficulty). The shotgun is a powerful weapon that will be very handy in
dealing with groups of enemies before the castle section. It can be easy to run
out of ammo however, so be sure to save the shotgun for groups of enemies and
bosses only, and use the handgun for individual enemies.

EXCLUSIVE    Significantly increases the destructive power of the weapon for
             long distance targets! (40000)


+------------+
|  RIOT GUN  |
+------------+

Available from the merchant in chapter 3-1, the Riot Gun is an average weapon
that is only slightly more powerful than the Shotgun. It is best to keep the
upgraded Shotgun instead of buying the Riot Gun, as the Striker can be bought
later on in the game and is far more useful. The firing speed and reload speed
is exactly the same as the Shotgun. The capacity is initially better, but at
the level 6 upgrade ends up one round lower than the Shotgun.

LEVEL 1      5.0            1.53            3.03            7

EXCLUSIVE    Increases the firepower to 10.0. (120000)


+-----------+
|  STRIKER  |
+-----------+

Available from the merchant in chapter 4-1, sell any other shotguns you may
have at this point and stay with the Striker for the rest of the game. The
firepower, firing speed, reload speed and capacity are initially better than
the two other shotguns. As the weapon is upgraded, the firepower becomes
much higher (4.0 better than the Riot Gun), the firing speed is faster, the
reload speed is average but the capacity is the main advantage here. Upgrade
to exclusive near the end of the game for a 100 ammo round capacity. Combined
with the other statistics, this is clearly the most powerful shotgun and is
one of the best weapons to use toward the end of the game.

EXCLUSIVE    Increases the ammo capacity to 100. (60000)


+---------+
|  RIFLE  |
+---------+

Available from the merchant in chapter 1-2, the rifle is not worth buying in
the first few chapters of the game as there are very few places where long
distance shooting is required. By the time you reach the castle chapters, the
semi-auto rifle is available and is much more useful. The rifle's does have
one advantage over the semi-auto rifle in that when both are upgrades to
exclusive, the rifle is two times more powerful that the semi-auto. But the
slow firing speed and reload speed make the semi-auto a better rifle.

LEVEL 1      4.0            2.73            4.00            5

EXCLUSIVE    Increases the firepower to 30.0. (80000)


+---------------------+
|  RIFLE (SEMI-AUTO)  |
+---------------------+

Available from the merchant in chapter 3-1, the semi-auto rifle is a useful
gun for the castle areas and becomes even more useful against regenerators
in the island base. The semi-auto exceeds the rifle in all aspects apart
from firepower, which at exclusive is only half as powerful as the standard
rifle. But the firing speed (less than a second at exclusive), reload speed
and capacity of this gun are all better.

LEVEL 1      7.0            1.83            2.33            10

EXCLUSIVE    Increases the firing speed to 0.80. (80000)


+-------+
|  TMP  |
+-------+

Available from the merchant in chapter 1-2, the TMP has the lowest firepower
out of any gun in the game. But it has an extremely quick firing speed, and
this combined with the slow firepower makes a gun that can be used effectively
against crowds of enemies, even if it does take a while to defeat them all.
The exclusive upgrade gives a firepower equal to that of the level 5 Handgun,
although even when upgraded there are many better guns to use than the TMP.

EXCLUSIVE    Increases the firepower to 1.8 (100000).


+--------------+
|  CUSTOM TMP  |
+--------------+

Available only as Hunk in The Mercenaries mode, this custom TMP has a
firepower equal to a level 5 TMP, standard firing speed, a reload speed equal
to a level 3 TMP and a capacity equal to a level 3 TMP. Best used against
groups of enemies, the ammo runs out quickly so be sure to reload often.

+----------------+
|  MINE THROWER  |
+----------------+

Available from the merchant in chapter 3-1, this gun fires mines that attach
to objects and detonate after a few seconds. The mines can attach to surfaces
and even onto enemies, so be careful when firing them at fast moving enemies
like the Colmillos as they may run toward Leon with the mine attaches. Slower
moving ememies like ganados are good targets for the mine thrower, especially
when they appear in groups. The exclusive upgrade adds homing, so you can even
fire to the side of an enemy and the mine will still attach to them.

EXCLUSIVE    Adds "homing" to the Mine-Darts and signifcantly increases their
             blast radius. (30000)


+----------------------+
|  CHICAGO TYPEWRITER  |
+----------------------+

Available in a cleared game after completing Separate Ways, this weapon cannot
be upgraded, but when you look at the statistics it really doesn't need to be.
As fast as a TMP, with more firepower than a fully upgraded Shotgun, and with
infinite ammo, the Chicago Typewriter ranks up there with the Handcannon as
being one of the best special weapons available in the game.

+-------------------+
|  ROCKET LAUNCHER  |
+-------------------+

Available from all merchants, the standard rocket launcher is a weapon that can
only be used once before it has to be purchased again. It is extremely powerful
and can defeat most bosses with only one hit, although is expensive and takes
up a lot of inventory space. This powerful weapon does not have to be purchased
as all of the bosses can be defeated by using only the normal weapons, although
one can be found for free in a glass case shortly before the Verdugo battle.


+---------------------+
|  INFINITE LAUNCHER  |
+---------------------+

Available from the merchant at the start of a new round, the infinite launcher
is a rocket launcher with infinite ammo. Immensely powerful, normal enemies and
most bosses can be defeated in only one hit. Be sure to fire this weapon from a
distance as the blast can harm Leon if he is too near.


+--------------+
|  P.R.L. 412  |
+--------------+

Available by completing the main game on Professional difficulty, this weapon
is a small reward for finishing such a difficult task. The gun is charged by
holding R1 and the X button. When not charged, the weapon fires a thin laser
that temporarily stuns enemies. Charged, the laser is still thin but is far
more powerful and usually kills any enemy it hits. The disadvantages are that
the gun takes such a long time to charge, and the laser is so thin that it
can only be used against individual enemies or bosses. One advantage is that
slow moving enemies like the Regenerators are very easy to defeat.


+-----------------+
|  KRAUSER'S ARM  |
+-----------------+

Available while playing as Krauser in The Mercenaries mode, Krauser dashes
forward when his arm is used and kills anything in his path. This includes the
powerful enemies like the El Garradors and Dr. Salvadors. When used, the arm
takes over 45 seconds to charge up before it can be used again.


+-----------------+
|  KRAUSER'S BOW  |
+-----------------+

Available while playing as Krauser in The Mercenaries mode, the bow is a strong
weapon that can kill enemies like the ganados in one hit. It may take a while
to get used to aiming as the bow feels different to many other weapons, but the
power and quick firing speed make this a good weapon.


+-----------------+
|  FLASH GRENADE  |
+-----------------+

This blue grenade creates a bright flash of light when thrown, which stuns any
nearby enemies for a few seconds. Used against ganados, Leon can use the time
when they are stunned to walk up and kick them. They are also very useful in
some boss battles, especially against El Gigante.


+----------------------+
|  INCENDIARY GRENADE  |
+----------------------+

This red grenade bursts into flames when thrown. Best used against groups of
enemies, wait a few seconds after throwing as the flames can injure Leon.


+----------------+
|  HAND GRENADE  |
+----------------+

This green grenade creates a powerful explosion when thrown. Useful against all
enemies, especially against groups and in boss battles.



===============================================================================

8.                                Enemy List

===============================================================================


This section lists the eight normal enemies found in the game. Strategies on
the boss battles are found in the walkthrough.


+------------+
|  ARMADURA  |
+------------+

The Armadura are walking suits of armour that appear in Ashley's section of the
castle in chapter 3-4, and in the king's grail section on chapter 4-1.
Initially they only stand still, buy after Ashley finds the serpent ornament,
one of them enters the room and walks towards her. As Ashley has no weapons,
the only defense against the enemy is to run. Other Armadura's attack in the
hall, and these can be avoided by pressing the buttons at the prompt. When they
attack Leon, an incendiary or hand grenade works best against them.


+-------------+
|  COLMILLOS  |
+-------------+

First found in the graveyard in chapter 2-1, the Colmillos are wild dogs that
appear in a group of three. Use a rifle from a distance to shoot the leader at
the front of the group, then the shotgun to shoot the remaining two Colmillos.
In normal and professional difficulty modes, the Colmillos also appear in the
castle hedge maze. These quickly jump out from around corners, so be sure to
have the shotgun equipped and loaded ready to deal with them.


+---------------+
|  EL GARRADOR  |
+---------------+

El Garradors are tall and extremely fast enemies that make a small number of
appearances in the castle chapters. They are blind, but have very good hearing,
and can track Leon if he shoots or runs. Strange as it may seem, walking slowly
away from this enemy is the best way of avoiding him. To defeat him, target the
parasite on his back and shoot it before walking out of the way to shoot it
again. Some locations with this enemy have bells  which can be shot so that El
Garrador faces toward them, making it easier to shoot the parasite.


+----------+
|  GANADO  |
+----------+

The first and most frequently seen enemy in the game, the ganado is a village,
castle or island inhabitant that has been infected by a parasite. They can be
armed with a variety of weapons, including dynamite, crossbows and knives, as
well as defensive items such as shields and masks. Shooting ganados in the leg
or head usually makes them stumble, and they can then be kicked by approaching
them and pressing X, something that definitely helps save on ammunition.


+--------------+
|  LAS PLAGAS  |
+--------------+

First seen in chapter 2-1, the las plagas are parasites that emerge from the
heads of some ganados after they have been killed. The parasite takes over when
it appears, so shooting the body of the ganado will do no damage. Aim at the
parasite and keep shooting to defeat it. In later chapters the parasite can
separate from the ganado, although this happens rarely. Stand back when the las
plagas appears, as due to their small size they can be difficult to hit.


+--------------+
|  NOVISTADOR  |
+--------------+

First seen in the sewers of the castle in chapter 3-2, Novistadors are huge
insects that have the ability to turn invisible. They can be identified from a
distance by a very faint outline, so shoot them with the rifle if you can. In
later chapters, Novistadors remain visble but have the ability to fly. As they
appear in groups, a shotgun is the best weapon to use against them.


+---------------+
|  REGENERATOR  |
+---------------+

First seen on the island base in chapter 5-1, regenerators have the ability to
grow back parts of their body after they have been shot off. They can have up
to four parasites inside them, and the only way to see the parasites is to use
the infrared scope of the rifle. Shooting all of the parasites is the only way
to kill a regenerator. There is a spiked version of the Regenerator named the
Iron Maiden, which causes far more damage when it attacks. Both versions may
have a parasite on the back of their body as well as the front of it.

+------------------+

Available at the start of the game.
____

Name: Ashley Graham
Age: 20
Daughter of the United States President.

She was kidnapped by an unidentified group while on her way home from her
university.

The kidnapper's motives are still unknown. Although there's reliable
information that the perpetrator is an insider.

Only a handful of people know about this kidnapping. It's been kept under wraps
mostly due to the fact that we can't determine who the traitor is.

The guys in intelligence say they have reliable information that Ashley's been
sighted somewhere in Europe. But until we find out who the insider is, I don't
know what to believe. It could be a ploy.

We have very few leads as to the whereabouts of Ashley. But members of the
Secret Service and anyone else related to Ashley are being questioned by an
investigative team.

Even active agents are being investigated for information. It's just a matter
of time before the kidnapper is exposed.

|  ALERT ORDER  |
+---------------+

Found in the village in chapter 1-1, in the hut near the entrance to the farm.
____

Recently there has been information that a United States government agent is
here investigating the village.

Do not let this American agent get in contact with the prisoner.

For those of you not yet informed, the prisoner is being held in an old house
beyond the farm. We will transfer the prisoner to a more secure location in the
valley when we are ready. The prisoner is to stay there until further notice.
Meanwhile, do not let the American agent near the prisoner.

We do not know how the American government found out about our village. But we
are investigating.

However, I feel that this intrusion at this particular time is not just a
coincidence.

I sense a third party other than the United States government involved here.

My fellow men, stay alert!

                      - Chief, Bitores Mendez

|  ABOUT THE BLUE MEDALLIONS  |
+-----------------------------+

Found on the tree in the farm in chapter 1-1.
____

15 blue medallions... 7 in the farm... 8 in the cemetery...

For those of you who destroy 10 or more will be rewarded...

(The rest is illegible.)


+----------------+
|  CHIEF'S NOTE  |
+----------------+

Found on the bed in the chief's house at the end of chapter 1-1.
____

As instructed by Lord Saddler, I have the agent in confinement, alive. Why keep
him alive? I do not fully understand what the Lord's intentions are.

I would, however, think he'd keep them separate; not confine them together as
he has been ordered.

I don't expect Luis would trust a stranger but if by chance they did cooperate,
the situation could get a bit more complicated.

If for some reason, an unknown third party is involved, I don't think they'd
let a chance like this slip by.

But maybe it's all Lord Saddler's ploy - leaving us vulnerable so that this
third party will surface, if they even exist that is...

It's an unlikely possibility, but if a prowler is already amongst us, then our
plans could be ruined.

I guess the Lord thinks it's worth the risk, if we're able to stop whatever
conspiracy is at work.

Any any rate, it's the Lord's call. We will trust his judgement as always.


+-------------------------+
|  CLOSURE OF THE CHURCH  |
+-------------------------+

Found in the hut at the end of the path near the church in chapter 1-3.
____

Regarding the two fugitives, the apprehension of Luis is our top priority; the
American agent a distant second.

What Luis stole from us is far more important than the girl.

Unless we get it back, the girl will become useless to us. We must get it back
to execute our plan to the end.

If it gets in the wrong hands, the world would become a totally different place
than what Lord Saddler has envisioned.

At all costs, we mustn't let that happen.

Nevertheless, we're not letting go of the girl. To ensure that the agent does
not get to her, I have locked the church door where the girl is being held.

Anyone who needs access to the church must first get approval by Lord Saddler.

There is a key beyond the lake but it should be safe now that the "Del Lago"
has been awakened by our Lord. No one will get across the lake alive.

Plus, our same blood courses through the agent's veins. It'll be just a matter
of time before he joins us. Once he does, there will be nobody else left that
will come looking for the girl.


+--------------------+
|  ANONYMOUS LETTER  |
+--------------------+

Found on the bed in the house at the start of chapter 2-1.
____

There's an important item hidden in the falls. If you are able to get it, you
might be able to get Ashley out of the church.

But I'll warn you, the route to the church isn't a walk in the park by any
means. They've deployed what's called an "El Gigante", so God bless.

About what's going on in your body... If I could help you, I would. But
unfortunately it's beyond my power.


+--------------------+
|  PLAYING MANUAL 3  |
+--------------------+

Found in the church after rescuing Ashley near the end of chapter 2-1.
____

*  Control configuration changes are not reflected here. Please pay careful 
   attention to button functions.

1. Commands - Leon can give commands to Ashley to either "WAIT" or "FOLLOW" by
   pressing the R2 button.

2. Ashley and the Action Button - Depending on the situation, Leon and Ashley
   can cooperate to get past various obstacles.

3. Ashley's Health - You can use recovery items not only on Leon but on Ashley
   as well.

4. Ashley and Game Over - Leon has failed his mission if Ashley is either
   killed or carried away by the enemy.


+--------------------------+
|  SERA AND THE 3RD PARTY  |
+--------------------------+

Found in the hut in the farm in chapter 2-2.
____

The whereabouts of Sera are still unknown.

Most likely he's using an old secret passage taught to him by his grandfather
who used to hunt in this region long ago.

I'm pretty certain that he's hiding our property somewhere in the forest.

If his grandfather was still alive, I would have used him to find Sera...

But how did he find out about the egg injected into his body?

-And the fact that he was able to remove it before it hatched is concerning.

Another fact that concerns me is that Sera escaped with our property just
before the American agent arrived. I don't believe that was just a coincidence.

There has to be another player involved in this.

In order to settle the whole situation, we have to capture Sera and wait for
the effects of the drug to wear off before we inject him with another egg.

Once this is done, whoever is behind all of this will surface. Nobody shall
interfere with our plans. Those who do shall suffer severe consequences.


+--------------+
|  TWO ROUTES  |
+--------------+

Found in the hut with the typewriter at the start of chapter 2-3.
____

Just a while ago, I was informed by Lord Saddler that our men had shot down a
United States military helicopter.

There shouldn't be any more outside interference for a while now.

Unless the United States government determines who the traitor is, they can
only initiate very small covert operations.

We must use this time to our advantage and recapture the girl.

The two Americans can only get our of our territory by using one of two routes.
This is where we will stop them.

We shall make use of our forces to the greatest degree.

We will deploy a large number of Ganados in one of the routes to ensure that
they do not slip by us. For the other route we shall leave the task to El
Gigante. Whichever route they take, the agent will never leave here alive. Not
with the girl at least.


+--------------------------+
|  VILLAGE'S LAST DEFENSE  |
+--------------------------+

Found on the locker in the area with the moving platforms in chapter 2-3.
____

I clearly underestimated the American agent's capability. He's still alive.

I thought that we could wait until the egg hatches, but at this rate, he could
destroy the whole village before it does. We must take care of this nuisance.

We shall change our priorities - for the time being, we will cease our hunt for
Luis and ambush the two Americans.

There is a building used to enlighten betrayers just beyond the point where you
get off the lift.

It's a perfect place for ambushing them. If all else fails, they still would
need to face me in order to get past the last gate that leads out of the
village.

For only before my sight will the gate open.

|  CAPTURE LUIS SERA  |
+---------------------+

Found on the wall in the hall with the stone dragons in chapter 3-1.
____

I have confirmation that Sera has entered the castle.

Why he would return during his escape leaves me to question his motives. But we
must sieze this moment and capture him.

We will get the other two Americans after we apprehend Sera

It appears he took some vaccines when he stole our "sample". The vaccines we
can do without but we must retrieve the "sample" for it is our life blood.

I feel there is somebody else or some other group involved in this affair.

If the "sample" were to get into hands of that other entity, the world which we
seek to create will not come. We must apprehend Sera as quickly as possible.

+--------------+
|  LUIS' MEMO  |
+--------------+

Found in a cell in the sewer in chapter 3-2.
____

There are some parasites that have the ability to control their hosts.

It's basic knowledge among biologists but not much is known as to how the
parasites do it.

Studying these parasites specifically might reveal some clues as to how the
powers of the Las Plagas work. And perhaps provide more insight on the victims
of the Las Plagas, the Los Ganados.

Here is a list of some parasites that have the ability to manipulate the
behavioral patterns of their host.

  Dicrocoelium
Once the larvae of this parasite migrates to the ant's esophagus, it alters the
behavior of the ant. When the temperature drops in the evening, the infected
ant climbs to the top of a plant and clamps onto a leaf using its mandible.

It stays there immobile until the next morning, placing the ant where it's most
vulnerable to be eaten by a browsing herbivore such as sheep.

One could conclude that the parasite is manipulating the host's behavior to
make its way into the body of its definitive host.

  Galactosomum
The larvae of this parasite makes its home inside the brain of a fish such as
the yellowtail and the parrot bass. Once infected, the fish make their way up
to the water's surface where they'll swim until eaten by seabirds.

Once again, this peculiar behavior can only be explained by the parasite's
desire to get into the bodies of the seabirds.

  Leucochloridium
This parasite's sporocysts develop in the snail's tentacles. The sporocysts are
vivid in color and pulsate continually somewhat like a worm.

Surprisingly the infected snail makes its way to the top of a plant where it is
more visible to the eyes of birds, therefore more likely to be eaten.

Once eaten by a bird, the parasite will complete its metamorphosis into an
adult.


+------------------+
|  CASTELLAN MEMO  |
+------------------+

Found on the table before the gatling gun room in chapter 3-2.
____

For many years the Salazar family has served as the castellans of this castle.
However, not everything is bright, for my ancestry has a dark past.

Long ago there once was a religious group that had deep roots in this region
called the Los Illuminados. Unjustly however, the first castellan of the castle
took away their rights and powers.

As a follower of this religion and as the 8th Castellan, I felt that it was my
duty as well as my responsibility to atone for that sin.

I knew the best way to atone for the sin was to give power back to those who we
once took it away from, the Los Illuminados.

As expected it took a little time, but we were able to rejuvenate the once
sealed Las Plagas. With this success I was one step closer to the revival of
the Los Illuminados.

The reason why I released the Las Plagas from deep under this castle and gave
them to Lord Saddler was not only to repay for the sins of my ancestors but I
felt certain that the Lord would make better use of this power to help save the
world.

To save those that have sinned with the power of the Las Plagas and to cleane
their souls creating a world without sinners. The way it was meant to be. Once
cleansed, they would become one of the many Ganados where they will find their
reason to live.

And after the Lord has succeeded in creating the world in which he has
envisioned, then the sins of my Salazar family will be atoned for.


+-------------------+
|  FEMALE INTRUDER  |
+-------------------+

Found on the table at the start of chapter 3-3.
____

There seems to be a female intruder among us. We believe she's connected with
Sera.

We also believe that she was the one who removed the egg injected into Sera
before it hatched. She may have had him retrieve the "sample" before the
American agent's arrival.

It's obvious that her objective is the "sample". We must get to her before she
is able to reestablish contact with Sera.

There's also reason to believe that she's working for somebody. We need her
alive for interrogation.

The female should be able to answer all our questions. After we have captured
her, Sera will no longer be of any concern.

As long as we retrieve the "sample", you may dispose of him as you see fit.


+-----------------+
|  BUTLER'S MEMO  |
+-----------------+

Found in the butler's room while playing as Ashley near the end of chapter 3-4.
____

Knowing that Sr. Ramon Salazar had no family, Lord Saddler must have used his
strong faith in the Los Illuminados to his advantage to talk Sr. Salazar into
undoing the seal of the Las Plagas once done by his ancestor.

Sr. Salazar would never do such a thing unless he was in some way being used
unknowingly. I should have sensed the Lord's dirty scheme sooner. I feel I'm
partly responsible for all of this.

I have no idea as to what the Lord is planning, but Sr. Salazar was just being
used.

It is too late now however, Sr. Salazar has already taken the Plaga into his
body.

There is no turning back once the Plaga has turned into an adult in the body.

The Plaga parasite will not die unless the host dies. There's no cure. Perhaps,
Sr. Salazar may have been vaguely aware of the Lord's plan all along. But it's
hard to tell.

Nevertheless, there's nothing I can do about it now.

I have served the Salazar family for generations. I am prepared to continue my
services until the very end.


+----------------+
|  LUIS' MEMO 2  |
+----------------+

Found near the typewriter in the merchant's room at the start of chapter 4-2.
____

The first castellan buried the Las Plagas deep underground below the castle to
hide their very existence. But when Salazar released the Las Plagas, no one
thought he could bring them back to life. Because when Salazar found them they
were all just fossilized remains.

Everyone knew that the parasitic organisms could not survive withour hosts.
That they couldn't sustain life on their own. But when Salazar and his men
excavated the remains, it almost appeared as if the Las Plagas were just
waiting to be discovered so that they could resurrect.

Several years later, unexplainable convulsions started occurring among the
villagers who helped with the excavation of the Las Plagas.

Then one day, all of a sudden, these villagers turned into violent savages.

They later found out it was caused by the Las Plagas. Although they appeared
fossilized, they were able to survive the long years by lying in a dormant
state at the cellular level remaining in a spore-like form.

Apparently, during the excavation, the villagers inhaled the spores and within
their bodies the parasites became active again. This is how the Las Plagas were
resurrected.

Even as I'm writing, the excavation of the Las Plagas continues.

God only knows how many of these Plagas have been resurrected. Not to mention
the countless number of Ganados that have been created.

Their inhumane activity must be put to an end. If they are not stopped, people
around the world could turn into victims of this crazy cult organization.


+--------------------+
|  SAMPLE RETRIEVED  |
+--------------------+

Found on a table in the hall leading to the King's Grail in chapter 4-1.
____

As you may have heard, Luis Sera has been disposed of by Lord Saddler. The
"sample" is back where it belongs. I had hoped that the whole matter could be
resolved without troubling the Lord. However, as long as the "sample" is safe
we can all rejoice, for our time is nearly at hand.

Now that the "sample" is back in our safe hands, it'll be a bit more difficult
for that troublesome woman to get it. In light of all this, it's unfortunate
that Sera had to go. Like us, he would have had a bright future if only he had
shown more faith in our beliefs.

As for the other two Americans, the Lord has left the matter in our hands.

We must not disappoint the Lord. We shall capture Ashley and take her to the
Lord and dispose of the American agent.


+----------------------+
|  RITUAL PREPARATION  |
+----------------------+

Found in the clock tower in chapter 4-1.
____

Thanks to the efforts of the "Novistadors", we have been able to recapture
Ashley.

We shall prepare for the sacred ritual as quickly as possible and make Ashley
an official member of the Los Illuminados.

While we prepare for the ritual, those of you who feel inclined can attend to
our American friend.

We should be able to hold off our friend at least a little while by jamming the
gears in the clock tower with something.

I think if we jam the gears in 3 places, it should give us enough time to
prepare everything for the ritual.

Now go and entertain our American tourist.


+-------------------+
|  LETTER FROM ADA  |
+-------------------+

Found outside the merchant's hut at the start of chapter 4-3.
____

Once a Plaga egg hatches, it's nearly impossible to remove it from the body.
But if it's before it hatches, then it can be neutralized by medication.

If it does hatch you might be able to get it out by surgery before it turns
into an adult. But it won't be easy. There's a high chance you won't survive
the operation.

As far as I know the girl was injected with the egg before you. Her time is
ticking. You should prepare yourself for the worst case scenario.

|  LUIS' MEMO 3  |
+----------------+

Found on the table just before the first regenerator appears in chapter 5-1.
____

The hideous creatures such as the El Gigante and the Novistadors are merely
by-products of the diabolical and inhumane experiments conducted on the
specimens that were once human.

But there's one type of creature that clearly distinguishes itself from the
rest. These creatures are called Regenerators.

Regenerators have a superior metabolism that allows them to regenerate their
lost body parts at an incredible speed.

I've never seen anything like it...

It is this characteristic that makes them almost invincible to conventional
weapons.

But like any living creature, there's a way to kill it. Apparently there are
Plagas that live in its body; somewhat like leeches.

They can't be seen with the naked eye. They can only be located through thermal
imaging.

To stop its regeneration process, these leech-like Plagas must be located and
then destroyed.

As far as I know, most of the Regenerators host a number of these leech-like
Plagas.

To kill the Regenerators, each one of these leech-like Plagas must be killed.

Perhaps you have it figured out already, but you might be able to get out of
here by using the waste disposal vent.


+------------+
|  OUR PLAN  |
+------------+

Found on the table at the start of chapter 5-3.
____

Because of that agent we lost Chief Mendez and Ramon. Nevertheless, everything
will proceed according to plan.

I must admit however, the loss of my loyal men is a bit disheartening. But I
will deal with it.

Replacing that loss will not come easy. I must choose wisely; for the Plaga
reflects the conscience of their hosts. If chosen poorly, they could betray me.

I need men who will swear their allegiance to me.

I've learned my lesson when Sera betrayed me. I will not make the same mistake
again.

In this important hour, I cannot and will not have anyone stand in my way.


+----------------+
|  LUIS' MEMO 4  |
+----------------+

Found near the merchant before the cage area in chapter 5-3.
____

I'll report my findings about the Plagas here. The Plagas have 3 distinct
characteristics.

1.
As mentioned previously, the Plagas have the ability to manipulate the
behavioral patterns of their hosts.

2.
The Plagas are social organisms. By this I mean that instead of living
individually, they live in perfect social harmony. It is believed that they
have a collective intelligence.

This type of behavior can be seen among insects such as bees and ants. However
this kind of social behavior is rarely seen among parasitic organisms. Perhaps
it was a learned behavior by the Plagas. I'm finding out if this has any
relationship with their first characteristic.

3.
The Plagas have exceptional adaptation skills. They are able to live off many
kinds of organisms by creating a symbiotic environment quickly. This ability,
when combined with their social behaviors, allows them to interact
intelligently between hosts regardless of the host organism.

I am ashamed to admit that my pure fascination with the Plagas, in hindsight,
has blinded me to the true research objectives of the Los Illuminados.

Even with the knowledge that Saddler was going to abuse the results of these
experiments, I could not pull myself away from my research. As a result, I am
just as responsible for this whole mess as he is. I see now that I was wrong,
but can I stop their evil plans alone...?


+------------------+
|  KRAUSER'S NOTE  |
+------------------+

Found on the table in the merchant's room before the fortress in chapter 5-3.
____

It turns out that old man Saddler wasn't buying me from the start.

Even though I succeeded in kidnapping Ashley, I sort of sensed this when
Saddler didn't completely let me in the loop.

Under the circumstances, I had no other alternative but to call for her
assistance.

Perhaps she knew this was the way it was going to turn out all along...

My guess is that her ultimate goal might be different from Wesker's and mine.
This is just the perfect opportunity to find out.

And after I get rid of Leon and retrieve the sample, I'll put her in a bodybag
along with Leon and send them both to Wesker.


+----------------+
|  LUIS' MEMO 5  |
+----------------+

Found on the rocks in the merchant's area near the end of chapter 5-4.
____

From the initial stages of the research, we have been searching for a safe and
practical removal procedure of the Plaga.

Ironically, it turns out that the real objective of this research was not to
find a way to remove the Plagas from the infected persons but to find a way so
that the Plaga could not be removed from the body easily.

In the end, we were able to find out that the Plagas could be removed only by
exposing them to a special radiation.

The only drawback with this method is that it is a very painful procedure.
Since the Plaga attaches itself to the nerves, there is a possibility that it
may impair the consciousness of the host.

Another fact that must be mentioned is that once the Plaga grows into an adult,
the removal procedure could kill the host.

But perhaps death isn't so bad when you think about the alternative.


+---------------+
|  OUR MISSION  |
+---------------+

Found at the top of the steps at the start of the final chapter.
____

The real power of the United States lies in three areas. The Justice
Department, the Administrative bodies, and the Military. In order to take
control of these areas, we must influence the minds of the people who advise
the President.

After this is done, the rest of the departments will quickly fall under our
sway.

If by chance the United States were to figure out our plan, the damage caused
should be minimal.

We will still be able to conquer the country as planned using our backup plan.
Once we control the country, we will use their international influence to our
advantage.

The rest of the world will fall swiftly.

As already stated, if our first plan doesn't go as smoothly as expected, we'll
proceed with our secondary plan. By sending in our "special" forces we will
infiltrate the country from within. Fear and chaos will spread through the
nation like a virus.

It'll only be a matter of time before the country loses its stability. At that
time, when they're most vulnerable, we will strike.

Rejoice my brethren; the world shall soon be cleansed.

Found by completing chapter 1 of Separate Ways.
____

The only reason I've taken on this mission is to get closer to my own
objective. No matter what happens, I can't let anyone figure that out. Of
course, hiding in the shadows isn't my style. I'll have to reveal myself to
him and offer advice once in a while.

Here's what I know so far. Osmund Saddler's cult is known as Los Illuminados.
They've resurrected some sort of parasitic organism they call Las Plagas.
That's all my organization knows for sure, though Saddler's occult activities
seem worthy of investigation.

The Salazar family, castellans for generations, possess the ability to control
Las Plagas. The organization's hypothesis is that a unique frequency of sonic
wave sensed only by the parasites is used to control them. The same principle
used in dog whistles.

This was inferred through the analysis of a tissue sample we retrieved. The
tissue contained an organ presumably used for sensing sound waves. I've seen
cult members carrying ceremonial rods and I wonder if they emit these sounds.
Of course, this is purely theoretical.

The organization needs samples of the parasite to confirm or disprove these
theories. That is the main objective of my mission and the only way to prove my
loyalty to the organization. The opening moves in this chess game have been
played. There's no turning back now.


+------------+
|  REPORT 2  |
+------------+

Found by completing chapter 2 of Separate Ways.
____

Among all the people involved in this, Luis Sera has the least entanglements.
He works for no organization, preferring to move on his own. I'm the one who
told the organization of his importance. I did it because I like him. His
history betrays an enthusiasm I once shared.

It was a stroke of luck that I happened to intercept his e-mail for help. It
seems he can't trust the police, so he sent the e-mail to an old friend from
college. He must have thought his friend was still alive. At any rate, that's
how I managed to find him.

Apparently, he'd been conducting his own investigation of the cult while doing
research on Las Plagas. A brilliant scientist. He's accumulated a pile of data
and pieced it all together. Must be why Saddler hired him. Too bad Sera's
snooping has aroused his suspicion.

When I told him who I was, he practically begged to be taken into custody. He
needed protection. He said "I have no love for Las Plagas or this stupid cult.
I want out. I just want peace and quiet again." I ordered him to bring me a
master Plaga specimen - a sample - for evidence.

Looks like he's one of the few people whom Saddler actually trusts. Tracking
him down and getting my hands on the sample shouldn't be difficult. I doubt the
cult will take kindly to his escape, though. I'll have to guide this along if I
want it to go smoothly.

|  REPORT 3  |
+------------+

Found by completing chapter 3 of Separate Ways.
____

Jack Krauser has been the subject of extensive study and research by the
organization. His skills and personality have been tested both on and off the
battlefield. If he weren't the best, he would become a liability that would
jeopardize the rest of us.

My conclusion? He's a great soldier. No more. No less. As long as he's well
compensated, he shouldn't cause any problems for us. If he does start to get
restless, I can take care of him. I've studied his combat style and can deal
with that arm of his if necessary.

Krauser answers directly to Wesker, and it was Wesker who decided that Krauser
should be sent to spy on the cult. He also decided to send me along. I wonder
if it wasn't to keep an eye on Krauser.

No doubt Krauser has already fallen to the temptation of Las Plagas and the
power they represent. This could have dire consequences for the organization.
On some level, however, this may be a necessary development, as his role is to
disrupt this farce of a play.

That said, the stage and its players will ultimately come crashing down in the
end. Bad luck for him, but he'll play the patsy in the end and take the fall
for all of us. That's why I need to make sure things keep going exactly as they
are.


+------------+
|  REPORT 4  |
+------------+

Found by completing chapter 4 of Separate Ways.
____

Leon S. Kennedy... Perhaps the most essential part of this mission. This story
wouldn't be complete without him and his formidable survival skills. He has
what it takes to survive against overwhelming odds. I've seen him do it before.
And he's improved since then.

Practically a genius, he has smarts and he knows how to use them. On top of
that, his service as a government agent has toughened him up. I'll work behind
the scenes to make him think he's the primary player here, though it may be
naive of me to think that'll be easy.

Considering the involvement of both Saddler and Krauser, the possibility of
unforeseen problems is there, but I need him in the supporting role for me to
achieve my goals. I'll do whatever it takes to keep him in his place and make
this all go smoothly.

Of course, his role didn't exist at all until a few months ago. Back then, my
role was much simpler, too. But that was before the President's daughter was
abducted and Leon was dispatched alone to find her. Talk about a major script

absolute and unshakable faith in my vision of what's in store for him.

It wasn't easy, but I'd say the mission has been a success. Getting my hands on
the sample was my initial objective after all. But I've sent Wesker a different
present, just as the organization ordered. Pretending to work with him was
entertaining.

Albert Wesker... I wonder where he's headed next. Something tells me this whole
affair was just a taste of what he's got in store. To him, Umbrella represented
power. He used it to hide behind while he made plans of his own. And now the
umbrella's been folded.

With the sanctuary of their old umbrella ruined, those in power struggle to
erect a new one. They are aware of their own crookedness and deceit as they
engage in their personal war of light and darkness. That's why Wesker will stop
at nothing in opening his new umbrella.

The giant pharmaceutical corporation S maintains medical and drug facilities
the world over. We know for certain that Wesker has been in contact with them
following Umbrella's demise. There's no doubt we'll next hear from him there.
The organization must remain vigilant.

But Wesker's not stupid. He knows exactly what the organization is thinking. He
and I still have time to continue our little game of cat and mouse before the
next move is played. The mission may be over, but the battle is just beginning.
