|EMBLEMS|NONE.                                                                 |
|ENEMIES|1. Majini (Town).                                                     |
|       |2. Executioner Majini [Semi-Boss].                                    |
|       |                                                                      |

Walk down the linear path and drop down.  Grab the [HANDGUN BULLETS x10] and a [GREEN HERB] before you go inside the building.  As soon as you enter the building a cutscene will play and shortly after it’s go time, many Majini’s will quickly be headed for the house.

Act fast!  Grab the [HANDGUN BULLETS x10] lying in the corner, and examine the drawer under the television for another pack of [HANDGUN BULLETS x10].  Destroy the [CRATE] and [FRUIT] in the other corner by using your knife to find more items. Push the two cabinets so that they block the larger window and the door (or you can order your partner to push one of them - this is even faster).  Lastly, grab a [HAND GRENADE] by slashing the fruit near the window.  Now it’s time to take the Majini’s one by one, shoot through the smaller windows.

Note: Majini’s will drop items now that you’ll want to collect.
Trivia:  The guy with the megaphone is saying the following to the Majini’s:
• “People, think of what awaits us! The paradise! It, Uroboros, is a gift - we are lucky presentees!”
• “He here is an infidel, a fiend. So we now will make an example of him.”
• “Intruders! There in the house!”
• “No one shall find out what happened here! They shall die! GET THEM!”

Things will get rough soon, so you’ll want to make extremely good use of your scarce ammunition, shooting only the heads of the Majini’s.  It’s only a matter of time before they break through the roof and the cabinets, as well as the gate outside:  The executioner will slam through it.  He’s the one to be extremely wary of as one slash of his axe means an almost-instant death.


He has several attacks you want to be careful of:
1. Overhead swing: Commonly used, when hit this results in the dying status so be extremely careful.  He holds the axe behind him if he plans on doing this.
2. Horizontal swing: He can swing the axe horizontally, giving him quite an attack range.
3. Horizontal Rage swings: When he gets low on health he will swing the axe repeatedly.  Back away if he does this.
4. Grab-Choke: He can grab one of your characters and choke them.  Help your partner or ask for help whenever this happens.  You can also attempt to break free, but it’ll cost more time and is harder to do.

He’s got a fair amount of health so you’ll want to use everything on him that you’ve possibly got at this point.  Grenades works best, followed by explosive barrels, and lastly Shotgun blasts to his head followed by a melee attack.  Alternatively you can empty the Machine Gun in his head and once again use melee attacks.  Resort to the handgun only when you’re out of options.

There are three locations where the executioner will not bother you:
1. Climb the top of the first building.
2. Move inside the bus and stay in the middle.
3. On top of the bus, and on the platform to the left of the bus.

Get out of the house and you should hear something from Kirk, the chopper pilot.

Basically your goal is to survive until he can clear the way for you up north.  You’ll hear one more time from him before he finally arrives, which sort of tells you that you’re about 2/3rd through.  In total you’ll have to wait around 8 minutes or so, keep this in mind.
Here are some exploration suggestions:

o You can actually get to the second floor and on top of the building you start out in.  Head through the gate that the Executioner has slammed open, and move left.  You can climb a ladder if you jump over the wooden fence or walk around this.  Follow the path back to the house.

You’ll find a [WOODEN BARREL], [WOODEN CRATE], more [HANDGUN AMMO x10] and a [GREEN HERB].  Don’t jump down just yet, instead climb the ladder to the top of the building to find [HAND GRENADES x3].  From this position you can take out the Executioner fairly easy by using the Rifle (aim for his head) or by throwing grenades at him.  You won’t be bothered by many Majini up here, but expect a few to drop by and say hi.

o You can enter the bus and loot the two [BARRELS].
o The house to the left, located behind the bus holds [HANDGUN AMMO x3], two [BARRELS] and a [GREEN HERB].  An other item to search for is the [MACHINE GUN AMMO x30] in the drawer.
o There is a house on the northeast/right area which contains a [HAND GRENADE] and a [INCENDIARY GRENADE] on the shelves.  You can also find [HANDGUN AMMO x10] if you search the blue cabinet on the right of these shelves, and [MACHINE GUN AMMO x30] can be found in the corner.  There’s also a [WOODEN CRATE] here.

Note: Breakable stands throughout the area will reveal a [RANDOM ITEM] when they are destroyed.

Head to the north of the area and note the inflammable stack of barrels that you can greatly use to your advantage.  With the horde behind you, make a quick turn and shoot when most are close the the barrels.  This will disable a good few of them.  Go inside the bus and destroy the barrels if you hadn’t already done so.

Continue to the northeast of the area and open the suitcase in the corner.  This holds the [VZ61 SMG] which you can give to Sheva so you don’t have to worry about her ammo for a while.  The executioner will probably be on your tails once again, so it’s time to move to the west from here.  The fruit contains a [HAND GRENADE] but more importantly you can move to higher ground from here.  If you need it, grab the [HANDGUN AMMO x10] from the corner and loot the [WOODEN BARREL] while you’re at it.

Do so and jump over to the platform past the barrel.  Shake off a large portion of the horde by blowing up the barrel.  Grab the [GREEN HERB] on this platform and keep the Majini’s at a distance.  The good thing is that the executioner can not get to you as long as you’re here.  You can also jump on the bus for a somewhat larger movement area, and there’s a [CRATE] on the barrel at the end.  You should be able to hold out a long time from here, long enough until the chopper arrives.

Note: If you want to kill the executioner, your best bet is to use a few grenades on him.  Whenever he crouches, run toward him to sort out an uppercut.  When you run out of grenades, resort to the Shotgun and deliver two shots at his head to make him kneel.  Keep this up and you’ll down him soon enough.  It’s possible to knock a transformer box off one of the shacks near the southern gate, you can use this to your advantage.  If you manage to kill the executioner, grab the [GOLD RING] from his body.  This can be sold for 5000 gold, making it one of the most precious treasures in the game!

Chapter 1-1 comes to an end.
