While Silent Hill 3
is generally a linear game, this walkthrough covers how to
find all essential items, weapons and how to make it to the
next location, including on how to get past the bosses. Also
included are specific events and puzzle solutions for the
three difficulty levels (both action and puzzle). All directions
(North, West, East, South) are relative to the map after you
receive the map of the area. Beforehand, the directions are
relative to Heather's position (turn left, right, etc.).
Knife - Basically a useless melee weapon that has
poor range and poor damage dealing abilities. You'll take
a lot of damage in combat with this. You're better off just
Steel Pipe - This tool will save you ammo early on
and you'll find certain enemies are susceptible to a good
Katana - The best of the melee weapons. It has good
speed, great damage, good blocking and takes no time to ready
for immediate attacks.
Handgun - Decent ranged weapon that you'll most likely
use as a default for most enemies. Carries 10 bullets and
has good range. Won't do as much damage as the shotgun will,
but the recoil is much better.
Shotgun - Great damage dealer, but can be inconsistent
as its attacks are more of a spray that the standard bullets
of the handgun. Also, the recoil can leave you slow and open
to attacks. Suggested for bosses and softening up large groups.
Use with caution.
Stun Gun - One might think this is a completely worthless
weapon, but once you use it, you'll find it to be a great
addition. The Stun Gun does one thing well - it knocks enemies
to the ground. At which point, you can run for it or start
kicking them to do damage without wasting ammo. The only drawback
- very short range.
Submachine Gun - This weapon is great for laying down
some serious damage than causes the enemy to jerk in place
as they quickly get devoured by gunfire. Too bad it eats up
ammo. This is only made worse by the extreme lack of ammo
available for it in the game. Use only when necessary.
Unlimited Submachine Gun - This weapon is just like
the Submachine Gun, except that you don't have to reload and
you can keep firing until everything in your path is dead.
Can be found in the alley behind the mall at the beginning
of the game once you unlock it. To do so, you must deliver
the killing blow to the final boss with a melee weapon.
Flamethrower - To unlock this one, kill more enemies
with ranged weapons to make this available in you next game.
Pick it up in the Bakery in the mall. The weapon can do good
damage but it forces you to stand still to aim. Good thing
is that it sprays out and can hit multiple enemies at one
Beam Saber - This Star Wars-like weapon can be unlocked
by killing more enemies with melee combat. During your next
game, you'll find the Beam Saber disguised as a doorknob at
the end of the hall after you get on the second floor of the
mall. The weapon itself is a good melee tool, comparable to
the Katana. Its only drawback is that it takes too long to
Silver and Gold Pipes - In your Extra game, throw the
Steel Pipe into the water after using the Dryer. Then answer
the questions No, No, Yes to get these two pipes. Neither
are all that great when it comes to fighting, especially in
comparison to the regular pipe. Also, there's a chance that
they'll break from use.
Heather Beam/Sexy Beam - To get this weapon, you need
to kill 333 enemies in multiple playthroughs. The weapon comes
automatically equipped (meaning that you need to keep Heather
unequipped weapon-wise). I won't spoil what this weapon does,
but you'll have some fun with this very different weapon.
| Difficulty Levels
Easy Action - Weapons reload without animation, enemies
take little ammo to drop and cause less damage. Environmental
dangers are neutered and it's impossible to fall off of ledges.
Suggested for first time players or those who just want to
go through the game for the story.
Normal Action - Enemies deliver and take average amounts
of damage. Expect multiple enemies in most areas. On your
first play through on this difficulty, expect to run past
many enemies or stick to melee to drop most as there just
isn't enough ammo to kill them all. Be wary of falling off
edges and there are other environmental dangers to be weary
Hard Action - Expect a solid challenge. In fact, you
may find yourself finding ways to avoid combat altogether
as you won't have enough ammo and healing items to deal with
Puzzles - The difficulties in the puzzles are detailed
for each in the walkthrough. Easy level is for those who don't
want to tax their mind. Normal provides a mild challenge and
may require a moment or two to think things out. Hard pulls
out the stops and gives you puzzles that require effort to
figure out and get successfully.
Double Head - This beast will first show up in the
Mall and is the familiar dog-type enemy from any game in the
genre. Fast but more annoying than dangerous, deal with these
with the handgun or trick them with the Beef Jerky.
Pendulum - These insect-like creatures can be found
in both the air and on the ground. If you catch them on the
ground, shoot them with the handgun. In the air, you'll need
to keep on the move to dodge their flying attacks.
Insane Cancer - These obese monsters are slow but can
deliver brutal physical attacks. You'll find them laying on
their backs. They can be hard to sneak past in the tight halls.
If you choose to go into melee combat with them, beware their
Numb Body - These two-legged, pink bodied freaks are
the lightweight fodder of Silent Hill 3. Don't waste
ammo on them when a pipe or Katana will do the job. There
is the rare larger version that shows up every now and then,
usually with a couple other small Numb Bodies around.
Slurper - These ground-crawling monstrosities are pretty
quick-moving and like to grab you by the feet or just knock
you down altogether. Melee weapons have a hard time hitting
home, so stick with the handgun. Also, you can toss down Beef
Jerky to attract them away from you.
Closer - The first monster you will come across in
the game, these beasts look impressive, but are slow enough
to dodge. If you use a handgun, you can hit them a few times,
move and shoot a couple times more. Beware their lengthy arm
Scraper - These violent beasts show up late in the
game and are very similar to the Missionary Boss. They move
with decent speed and have some brutal arm swipe attacks.
Just avoid them if you can.
Nurse - This Silent Hill standard makes a return. This
time around, you have to deal with either pipe-toting Nurses
or gun-toting Nurses. Either can do decent damage if they
hit you. The gun attacks can knock you down if you're not
You begin the game in Silent Hill's very own theme park.
The last time you might have been there was as Harry during
the original Silent Hill. If you take a moment to check
your inventory, you'll find yourself armed with a couple weapons
and with some healing items already in your possession. Don't
think of it as a permanent thing. After looking around the
first area, head over to the back door. Through it is a circular
path. The first door that you come across that will actually
open leads to a souvenir shop. Ignore it as there isn't anything
in there. Head to the door next to the green gate. In the
next area, cross over to the metal gate. Run up the steps
and open the gate next to the Roller Coaster control booth
(which you won't be able to open). Once on the tracks run
down them until a cutscene brings an end to this scenario.
Note: If you start a new game from the Extra New Game option
after beating the game once, you'll be able to by-pass this
After the opening series of scenes, Heather will
be in the ladies bathroom. There's a save point here, if you
wish to use it. Go to the back window and escape out into
the back alley. Run down until you come to a door. Enter the
hall and turn right. Take the door at the end of the hall,
which will lead in to the closed up portion of the mall. Walk
over to the open door (the one that's lit). Here, you'll get
the handgun. Be sure to pick up the ammo in this room and
head out through the back door. In this hall, the mall map
is on the wall across from the elevator. Now, head over to
the east Exit door and take the stairs up to the second floor.
Once in the hall, take the south path all the way to the end
and out into the mall. Run to Helen's Bakery, where you'll
grab the Tongs. Return to the previous hall and go to the
last Northeast door, which leads to the store room. In here
is another save point. Use the Tongs on the wooden palette
at the back of the room to get the key to My Bestsellers.
Head back to the mall and enter My Bestsellers. In here is
a puzzle at the back door.
Puzzle - My Bestsellers
Easy - The code is random, but luckily, all you need to
do is pick up the two books on the floor. Place them in the
correct order to get the code and use it on the panel.
Normal - Go over to the five books that are on the
floor. On the spines is a random four digit code. Place the
books on the shelf in order to see the code. Use it on the
Hard - To solve this puzzle, you will need to read
the puzzle posted by the back door and pick up the books to
see what volume number corresponds to what book. Once you
have those in order, the next to last part of the riddle will
tell you of some multiplication and deduction you'll need
to perform. Or, you could ignore the books and riddle and
just punch in 8352.
Enter the hall and head to the elevator. Once inside, you'll
get a short cutscene. Pick up the radio and exit. Once in
the next hall, run for the Northwest door. Once out into the
mall area, run North to the storeroom next to the bathrooms.
Inside you'll locate the flashlight in the cardboard boxes.
If you're having a hard time, turn off the light switch by
the door. If you're on puzzle difficulty Normal or Hard, step
next door to the Men's Bathroom for the bottle of Bleach.
Back out in the mall area, head East to the bent security
shudders. Now, head to the store from before and grab the
Bulletproof Vest and Hanger. Return to the mall area and go
to the west door across from where you first entered the area.
Use the Hanger on the ladder and climb up to the second floor.
In this new area, you'll find two sets of escalators. Ignore
the ones leading to the first floor and head up. Enter the
lit doors to the diner. Take the Cooked Key from the "meal"
on the table. Return to the second floor and take the last
door to the South. Grab the Walnut from the display case and
go through the back door. In the hall, use the Cooked Key
to unlock the east door. Once in the Deli, grab the Steel
Pipe and head out. Make a break for the Southeast door where
you'll grab the Detergent (this item won't be there on Easy
difficulty). Now, head through the back door and throw the
switch by the fan. Enter the next hall, combine the Detergent
and Bleach and use in the pail. After the small scene, be
sure to turn the switch back on. Return to the hall and go
to the Northeast door. Use the Walnut in the vice to get the
Moonstone. Return to the 3rd floor via the escalators and
use the Moonstone on the door with the Crescent mark. In the
next area, go around the to the ladder and climb down.
Boss - Split Worm - In this area, you'll find three
entrances on both sides of the room where the Split Worm can
enter. The only time you can hurt him is when his mouth is
revealed. You can try and wait him out, or you can toss down
some Beef Jerky and step away, waiting for him to show up.
Once his head opens up, shoot away. Repeat as necessary.
Once the fight is over, head West and keep going West through
| Once you arrive, head for the concourse by turning right
and going through the next door. After going through the turnstiles,
grab the map and take the stairs down. Now, go to the stairs
down to Platform One and take the steps down to the hall below
to grab the Nutcracker. Return to the Concourse and use the
Nutcracker on the chain barring the door to Platform Two. Head
down and go into the subway car to get the Shotgun and ammo.
Head further down and take steps to Platform 3. Once there,
you'll see a red door beside the tracks. Step down off the tracks
and run for the door. Note: On Normal and Hard difficulties,
this is the only time I would suggest getting onto the tracks.
Any other time would just be begging to get run over. Once
you get to the door, run back to the Platform and pull yourself
up. Go to the West door, go up the West steps, down the next
set and enter the subway car. Once the subway train gets going,
work your way from car to car. If you can dodge the enemies,
do so as you won't be returning to this area. Once the ride
is over, go to the blue door. Run down the stairs and hang a
right. Go through the door at the end of the hall.
Turn to your left and head to the first blue door on your
right. Run down the hall to the door at the end. In the next
hall, take the first blue door on right and then take the
first door on the left. In the next room, grab the map and
Maul. Go through the South door. Head South and take the West
door to get the Wine Bottle. Return to the previous hall and
head East. Go to the North door and head down the hall to
the next North door. Run around to the Southeast door. In
the next hall will be two sidehalls. Take the second one and
use the Wine Bottle on the kerosene heater to get the Oil-Filled
Bottle. Head back to the first sidehall and use the Oil-Filled
Bottle on the fuel tank. Turn on the hoist and head down the
ladder. Once you get past the revulsion of walking around
on the squishy floor, head up the stairs. Keep going past
the door and move Eastward, across the river of sewage. Once
into the sewer area, go down to the Southwest door and head
West back across the "river" until you reach the
Garbage Room. Grab the Dryer and return to the Sewer area.
Take the Southeast door and head to the East door. There's
a save point here and a note worth reading. Go into the next
room and use the Dryer on the outlet. After the easy kill,
head across. Note: If you are playing through an Extra
Game, toss the Steel Pipe into the water and answer the three
questions: No, No, and Yes. You'll get the Gold and Silver
Pipes, which are really just for show. Now, keep heading
East and then go South. Head South to the sidehall and go
through the door. Follow up the linear path along the stairs
and go up the ladder.
| Construction Site
Once you get here, you won't have any opportunity to go
back to the sewers (like you'd want to, anyway). Run around
to the entrance and enter the only open door on the floor,
which will lead you to the stairs. There is no map to this
site, but since you won't be spending much time here, that's
really no issue. Go to the 5th floor and enter the lone openable
door to the Squatter Settlement. You'll find a discolored
portion of the wall. Use either the Steel Pipe or Maul to
smash it in to get the Silencer, which can be used on the
Handgun or the Submachine gun, when you get it. Step over
to the mattress and push it down to the floor below. Jump
down after it and go to the broken window-frame. Once on the
scaffolding, dodge the Pendulums and run around until you
see the open window. Enter.
| Hilltop Center
You'll find yourself in the Reception Area for Shore Front
Poseables. In the Hilltop Center, floors are broken up into
groups of rooms leased by one company or another. Make note
of the business locations on the map (when you get it). Head
out the only door and head through the hall and take the first
left side door to the elevator lobby. Go over to the entrance
door to Monica's Dance Studio. Take the 1st door on the right-hand
side to the office to get the map. If you're playing on Normal
or Hard, you'll return later once you get the Screwdriver.
If you're playing on Easy, just take the Rope from the desk
drawer. Go back out to the elevator lobby and take the Northeast
door to the stairwell. Head to the 5th floor and go to the
Art Gallery on the Southeast side. Take the Northeast door
to hall and grab the Screwdriver. Before heading back to the
office, step into the nearby store room to get the Katana.
Step over to KMN Auto Parts, south of the Art Gallery, and
work your way around to the West wing, where you'll enter
the 1st South door to the Office Space. Here, you'll find
the Jack. Return to the 3rd floor and enter the Dance Studio's
Office. Use the Screwdriver on the jammed desk drawer to get
the Rope. Head out to the elevator lobby and use the Jack
on the open elevator. Once that's done, use the Rope and climb
down to the 2nd floor. Enter Echo Interiors the West side
and go through the doors to the North room. Examine the bath
| Hilltop Center - Otherworld
| After the cutscene, head south and then out the East door.
Go North into the reception area. Take the North door. After
another scene, you'll be in the Receptionist's Office, where
you need to pick up the Oxydol. Leave the area and run to the
East elevator. Head to the 1st floor, where you'll get a nice
surprise. Go to the Last Day Cafe on the East side and grab
the Pork Liver from the open fridge. Take the elevator to the
5th floor and head to the Southwest door. Head to the Southwest
door in the hall to the Smoking Room. Grab the Matches, head
back out, run East and take the North door with the blue light
overhead (Is this a secret plug for K-Mart? Does Sammael have
a deal with Martha Stewart?) On the other side of the door is
a door leading to the alternate version of the Art Gallery.
Go to the large painting and combine the Oxydol, Matches and
Pork Liver. Once you've performed vandalism, go through the
hatch and head down the stairs to the 4th floor. Run to the
Southwest door and then to the Northwest door. Grab the Silver
Coin and use it on the nearby Vending Machine for the Life Insurance
Key. Return to the 1st floor and use the key on the Southwest
door to enter Elberton Life Insurance. Run South and take the
last door available. In this room, you'll find a set of papers
that Heather will need to read. Go back to the 1st floor lobby
and exit North.
| Streets/Daisy Villa Apartments
Front the front door, run down the street and turn North
up the alleyway and hang a left. Go to the lit door to enter
the Daisy Villa Apartments. Don't both trying to explore any
further as this small part of town seems to be apparently
under some kind of massive bug spray tent. Go to Room 102.
Boss - Missionary - This fight should provide far
more of a challenge than the last one. The Missionary has
a vicious slicing attack and has some good speed. He also
blocks your handgun and shotgun attacks. Get him to lunge
at you, which will leave him open for attack. Don't waste
ammo trying to shoot him while he's on the run. If you get
him down on the ground, rush over and kick away to get in
cheap shots. Once his health is down some, he start performing
rushing slash attacks. Keep on the move and be sure to sidestep
a lot. After a while, he will finally go down.
After the fight, go into Heather's bedroom to get her Stun
Gun. Leave the apartment and head out the front door to move
| Silent Hill
Welcome to familiar territory from Silent Hill 2. Exit the
room into the parking lot for Jack's Inn. Run West along Nathan
Avenue to Carroll Street. Go down to Brookhaven Hospital.
While just about everything else is closed up, you can stop
in at the Bar for some supplies.
| Brookhaven Hospital
If you played Silent Hill 2, the layout of the Hospital should
be quite second-nature, even if some of the rooms are closed
while others are open. Enter the door across from the entrance
to get a Map. Now, go to the elevator and head up to the 2nd
floor. Go to the Women's Locker Room and grab the Nail Polish
and Perfume. Go back to the 1st Floor and use the Nail Polish
on the glued collage in room C4 for the Stairwell Key. Use
it to enter the stairwell and walk up to the 2nd floor.
Puzzle - 2nd Floor Lock
Easy - Input the code 4639 to unlock the door.
Normal - Input the code 8634 to unlock the door.
Hard - Input the code 4896 to unlock the door.
Once through the door, go to room M4 and get the time from
the Alarm Clock.
Puzzle - Alarm Clock/Briefcase
Easy - The number for the Briefcase is a random number
on the Alarm Clock. Example: If the time is 9:25, you'll need
to input 0-9-2-5.
Normal - The number for the Briefcase is a random number
on the Alarm Clock. This time around the number is based on
military time (or 24 hour).
Hard - The number for the Briefcase is a random number
on the Alarm Clock. This time around the number is based on
military time (or 24 hour) and set in the P.M.
Once the briefcase is open, you'll get the Polaroid Camera.
Go to the basement and grab the Submachine Gun and ammo on
the floor. Enter the Store Room and use the Polaroid Camera
behind the bookcase for the random code to the 3rd floor door.
At this point, you can go up to the roof to get more Submachine
Gun ammo. I would seriously suggest doing so as the ammo is
very rare. Go to the 3rd floor and enter the Polaroid code
on the keypad. Run down to S12 and answer the phone. Now,
go to the 2nd floor and run down the hall of the patient wing
to find the new door at the end of the hall. Go through the
door to find yourself in a linear series of halls where doors
will open and close to direct you to your goal. Once at the
end, look at the red glowing symbol for a small scene. After
the scene, head through the now open hall to the door at the
| Brookhaven Hospital - Otherworld
Go up the ladder and exit the door to the 3rd floor. Go
to the Day Room and exit through the door on the other side.
Run to the elevator and go to the 2nd floor, where you'll
need to go to the Women's Locker Room. Grab the Plastic Bag
from the garbage can. Go to Examining Room 4 on the 3rd floor
and use the Plastic Bag to get a Bag of Blood. Now, take the
door to the Crematorium. Here you'll have to solve another
Puzzle - Crematorium
Easy - The key will just be laying there for you. Can't
get much easier.
Normal - Here, players will be given four gurneys
with bodies. On the bodies will be sheets with numbers on
them. These four numbers will be the combination you need
to input. On the door next to the lock is a picture with four
Roman numerals, representing the order in which the numbers
need to be input. The answer is random, except that the number
7 is always a part of the solution. (If you get the Happy
Birthday phone call in the Men's Locker Room, you'll know
Hard - If you want the challenge, try out figure out
this puzzle in which each of the bodies has a small poem referencing
a bird of once kind or another. The puzzle by the lock will
tell you which birds need to be input in order. The answer
Take the Cremated Key and go back to the elevator, where
you'll head to the 1st floor. Use the Cremated Key on the
door to the Day Room. Go though the other door and go to room
C4, where you'll use the Bag of Blood on the altar. Now, go
down the ladder.
Boss - Protector - This boss likes to swim around
in the water and rising up to take a few swipes. On Easy Action
mode, all you'll need to do is continue to pump him full of
bullets until he drops. On Normal and Hard, it's in you best
interest to use the Stun Gun to knock Leonard down. It's best
to hit him from behind. Move over and start kicking him while
he's down on the ground. You'll need to do this a few times
before he finally drops.
Leave the hospital and head back to Jack's Inn, Room 106.
After the cutscense, go back out and head Northwest on Nathan
Avenue towards the Amusement Park.
| Amusement Park
You'll find this place familiar. Run back to the back door
and go over to the Souvenir Store. This time around, walk
around the back and head to the front until you hear a crash.
Rush over to find a save point and the Roller Coaster Key.
Go back out and work your way to the Roller Coaster. This
time around, use the key and turn off the Roller Coaster.
Go through the gate and run down the track until the cutscene.
After a small bit of story, you'll need to go to the nearby
door. There's a save point here, which you might want to use
before entering the haunted house. Once inside, go through
the foyer into the dinning room. You can stick around for
the whole presentation or just move onto the study. Walk around
to the side to see the man at the desk and then go to the
now unlocked door. In the next room, walk carefully to the
exit. Once in the next winding hall, run like your life depended
on it, because it does. The red glow that follows you will
drain your life and kill you quickly, so just run and turn
corners as you reach them. You'll go through a second hall
and once you reach the exit, you're through. Run across the
new area until you see a hall. Turn in and run to the next
area. Pass through to the Auditorium, where you'll need to
grab the Red Shoe from the stage and the Chain from the seats
(you have to get the Red Shoe first). Return to the area with
the Rocket Ride and use the Chain on the column of the Rocket
Ride and on the rusted gate. Go into the control booth of
the ride and turn it on. Go through the door to get another
story sequence. Once over, go through the next door (you can
go back to Douglas for another small scene). In this next
area, turn and head into the Fortuneteller's Building, where
you'll be able to save. In here, you'll need to grab the Doll
Head. Exit and go to the wooden door to enter the fantasy
ride. Use the Red Shoe on the Cinderella Statue and the Doll
Head on the Snow White Statue. Go through the unlocked door.
In the ride are with the dragon head, take the door off the
side of the track. Run to the gate past the monsters and go
to the Carousel.
Boss - Carousel - Once the Carousel starts going,
break out the Katana and start killing the horses. Once all
of them are dead, the real fight begins. You'll find yourself
facing four very similar and familiar enemies, each with different
weapons. The first one attacks with a knife. The second one
has a handgun and knife. The third one comes with a pipe and
the fourth one comes at you with a Submachine Gun and knife.
All of your opponents block gun attacks well, so you're best
bet is to take the Katana and just wear them down, trying
to catch them when they're moving away from you. Do yourself
a favor and equip the Bulletproof Vest to take the edge off
of some of their attacks.
Once the fight is over, exit through the doorway. Run down
the hall and go up the stairs to the door.
After the scene, which sets a fine tone for this last area,
grab the "Eye of Night" Tarot and take the door behind the
organ. In this next hall, grab the map. You can step into
the Confessional if you like. Go around the hall to the East
door and pass through the next room. In the next hall, take
the North door and wait until you hear the cries. Watch the
footsteps as they lead to the painting hanging on the wall.
Inspect the painting and move it to reveal a door. Go across
the hall to the next door. Run around to the 4th South door
to enter the Library. Grab the "Moon" Tarot. Exit and go around
to the elevator. Once down on the lower level, take the Northwest
door to the hall. Run West and take the "Hanged Man" Tarot.
Return to the elevator area, run around to the 3rd South door
and then make a break for the Southwest door. Enter the 1st
door to the left and cross the room to the next straight hall.
Once again, pay attention to the child's cries and watch where
the footsteps go. Examine the wall to find a hidden door.
There'll be another door here, which leads to a familiar room
from the first Silent Hill. Look at the book on the chair
to get the "Fool" Tarot. Head back to the previous hall and
take the last door to find Alessa's old bedroom. You'll grab
the Brass Key from the Butterfly Case. Run back to the Confessional
Hall, where you'll use the key on the South door. Go to the
last door at the end of the hall to get the "High Priestess"
Tarot off of the bed. Return to Alessa's Bedroom and use the
Tarot Cards on the door.
Puzzle - Tarot
||Eye of Night
|Eye of Night
||Eye of Night
You might want to save before heading through the door. Once
through, go down the hall to the door. After the lengthy story
sequence, use the Pendant. If you don't, or if you choose
to attack, you'll end up dead. After another story sequence,
jump down the hole.
Boss - Final - This final culmination of the game
can prove to be a fight if you don't know what to do. While
the boss is standing up, hit it with the handgun a couple
times until his head drops down. If you have the ammo, walk
around just out of its arm's reach. If you back too far away,
it'll use a fire attack that you'll need to run around and
dodge for a few seconds. Shoot it in the face with either
the Shotgun or a good bit of handgun bullets. If you run out
of ammo, run in and whack away with the Katana on it's head.
After a while, the boss will finally die.

Take note of camera angle changes or when Heather's head turns
- As with previous installments, Heather turns her head to look
at important items. Also, there are times when the camera angle
will change to highlight doors or areas you need to be aware of.
To use the Bulletproof Vest or not - While the vest affords
you some decent armor to attacks, it slows you down A LOT. Only
equip it if you need to perform serious melee combat.
Not every room is worth entering - There are a number of
rooms where all that is in the room are monsters with no reward.
Be careful to pick and choose you fights.
Blocking attacks - You can actually block attacks in SH3.
Blocking deflects some of the damage delivered, but not all. Blocking
works better with a weapon in hand.
Here's a few suggestions on how to improve your chances on getting
Normal - This is the default ending that you will get on
your first time through. You can also get it later on by killing
less than 100 enemies.
Possessed - Kill more than 100 enemies, forgive the person
in the church, and take a lot of damage.
Revenge - You can only get this by killing 30 enemies with
the Sexy Beam (unlockable weapon) before reaching the apartment.
