HINTS:

Dealing with Enemies

- As your first line of defense, consider running! If you've got plenty of ammo or nearby characters are backing you up, then you can attempt to stand and fight.

- Remember that each weapon has its own special properties, such as Wide Attack Range, Automatic Fire, and Knock Down in a Single Blow. Use the best weapon for the situation.

- You can uncover information and secrets in memos, files, and other items. Collect important clues from all areas of every room. Your best strategy is to understand your enemy.


Opening Doors

- Depending on the door, you can open it with a key, use a weapon, beat the door in, and so on.
- If you can't find the key, or the door is guarded by enemies, then breaking it open is your next best action.
- Using a gun to open a door uses bullets. A tackle on the door works sometimes. Learn the best methods for different circumstances.


Other Characters

- Listen for game sounds as audible clues and indicators. You can hear other characters from afar when they are in other rooms. Their footsteps, screams, gunshots, all indicate different best courses of action.
- When you hear a scream, open the Map immediately. The location of the scream will be displayed.


Attack Objects

- In some areas, room items and fixtures can maximize damage to enemies when you shoot them. Use these "attack objects" in different ways to gain the upperhand.


Hidden Power of Items

- Herbs, emergency spray, and other medicinal items halt the Virus Gauge. Use them as much as possible when the Virus Infection is evolving or when you are poisoned.
- Combine green, blue, and red herbs to add more effects than if using them individually. Experiment with combinations to learn different potent effects.


Pause the Game

- In Single Play Mode you can pause the game and record your current progress by checking for typewriters which will be in set locations.

(Hint: When the teammate you are requesting an item from opens the Status Screen, you can no longer view the Request display. If the teammate does not respond to your request, try again.)

Then select the Present command and hand over the item by pressing X again. Use the left analog stick or directional buttons to change the direction of the hand off. When the item has been exchanged move to the side of the receiving teammate and press X again.

Obtain item from a corpse. To recover items from teammates who have died or become Zombies, open the Status Screen. The dead character's Item Menu will appear. Then place your cursor over the item you want and press X to make the Exchange command appear. Press the X Button and a cursor will appear on your own Item Menu. Move the cursor to a blank space ot the item you want to exchange and press X again. (Hint: You can confirm that other characters are dead by using the Map. Corpses do not remain in their rooms for long, so be sure to check the Map often for corpses.)

Ask teammates to use an item. In network play, you can ask teammates to use an item. On the Status Screen, select the item and press X. Then select the Usage Direction command, and the item you want to be used will be displayed on the Status Screen to other teammate. (Hint: When another player opens the Status Screen, you can no longer view the Usage Direction display. If you receive no reply, try the Usage Direction command again.
