Successfully complete the game with the best ending
to get the Channeling Stone. You have to use this item in five
different locations to get the true secret ending:
1. On the roof of the "Alternate School".
2. In the hotel parking lot.
3. The cabin of the boat.
4. Outside the entrance of the "Alternate Hospital".
5. On top of the lighthouse.
The first four can be done in any order, however use the stone
as soon as you enter those locations. The fifth location must
be the last place you use the stone.
Use the Channeling Stone that you obtained at the convenience
store. You will find out that you have been summoning aliens all
along. They will converge at the lighthouse and take you to their
leader. It is not the best ending, but you will be treated to
a humorous sequence and you will get the hyperblaster at the start
of your next game using your gold saved game.
1. School rooftop
2. Alchemilla hospital before fighting moth
3. Motel parking lot
5. Lighthouse rooftop
Bad: Do not save Cybil or Dr. Kaufmann
Bad+: Save Cybil but not Dr. Kaufmann
Good: Save Dr. Kaufmann but not Cybil
Good+: Save Cybil and Dr. Kaufmann
In the third floor of hospital area are two doors with
three panels of push buttons over each one. Read the two pictures
at the far end of the room. Use the "Camera" that you
already should have found on each of the pictures. This will reveal
the necessary pattern(s) that need to be re-drawn on the push-button
panels. This opens the respective door and allows the game to
After you complete the hospital, the old lady will
tell you to go to the "Other Church". Go to the Antique
Shop that is all the way in the northeast corner of your map.
After using the Antique Shop Key, enter and go to the closet in
the back of the room. Press [X] and answer "Yes".
Harry will slide the closet to the side. Just before entering
the hole in the wall, Cybil walks in. They talk about Harry's
lost daughter. After that, move Harry into the hole behind the
closet. When you get to the other end of the tunnel Harry will
say "This must be the other church". Before going to
the altar, get the ax. Although it is not a good weapon, it is
better than nothing. Go to the altar. It will burst into flames,
and Harry will pass out. He will wake up to find Lisa acting very
strange. Note: You cannot save Lisa. Her mind had been taken over
by Samel, the demon who changed the town. Do not waste valuable
game time trying to save her. However, always do what she tells
In the junked up hospital, go to the generator room
in the basement. Look at the machine on the left. You will see
the Hammer, which is the best hand to hand weapon.
Successfully complete the game. Save, then play again
in Next Fear mode. Go to the gas station and pick up the gas box.
In your map, look at Bloch Street. There should be a store three
blocks away that is marked similar to "Chainsaws Goodstore".
Go there, and in a broken window you will find the chain saw.
Successfully complete the game. Start a new game and
go to the gas station. Get the Gas Container and go to the first
floor of the Bridge Control Room to find the Rock Drill.
The Hyper Blaster is obtained by unlocking the UFO
ending, detailed below. Note: Channeling stone shows up on the
Game Ending screen, not this weapon. The channeling stone is another
possible item (in the convenience store in Next Fear mode if the
game is completed with a Good+ rating). To get the UFO ending
with it (and subsequently the Hyper Blaster immediately in the
Next Fear mode), use the item at these locations:
Old Silent Hill: On the roof of the Alternate School
Alternate Central Silent Hill: Right outside the hospital before
fighting the Moth/Adult Grub.
Resort Area: Norman's Motel, in front of the apartments
Alternate Resort Area: On the bridge of the boat.
Alternate Resort Area: Roof of lighthouse.
In the room with the Zodiac Signs, click the digit
according to the amount of limbs in the picture (from left to
right; Sagitarrius:6, Taurus:4, Gemini:8).
Unlocking the Grim Reaper's door
To unlock the Grim Reapers door in "nowhere",
type ALERT on the panel next to the door.
Saving Cybil Bennet on the carousel
Walk up to Cybil at the very start of the fight, while
your energy is full. She should slap you. Immediately after she
slaps you, splash her with the "red liquid" to save
her, saving valuable time. Note: The red liquid is found in the
"normal" hospital, on the floor next to the administrator's
Immediately before you enter the carousel to battle, stop and
look around for one of those black small baby ghosts that are
running around. Use the "red liquid" on it and the game
will think that you used it on Cybil. The graphics will glitch
for the FMV sequence that follows but will return to normal afterwards.
There is no need to restart.
The first step to save Cybil
In the "normal" hospital, go to the kitchen.
Get the plastic bottle by the sink. Then, go to the director's
office and use the bottle on the red liquid on the floor. Later
on in the game you use this on Cybil to save her from the creature
that you see on the back of all the nurses in the "alternate"
Killing Cybil with limit ammunition
Equip the hammer or some other slashing weapon. As
soon as she approaches, run away in any desired direction, until
she makes the carousel move. Its recommended that you run on the
outside second row closest to the entrance. Stop running as close
to a horse as possible. You should see her sitting cross legged
directly parallel with you. If not, run again. Immediately run
behind her, get in position, and hack away. You will get about
two hits if you use the quick tap attack. She will get off her
horse. Run away and repeat. It should take six or seven attacks.
A FMV sequence showing Cybil getting frustrated with the pistol
will appear. She will then try to strangle you. Shoot her with
the hunting rifle to finish the fight.
Easy final Boss battle
Before you go down the stairs to fight the final Boss,
use up all of your ammunition for every gun by shooting them into
the wall. The game recognizes that you have no ammunition to use
to defeat the final Boss, and will automatically skip the Boss
Saving time and ammunition
Run from some enemies instead of standing there wasting
ammunition and time. This is especially helpful in the dark. Also,
usually if you are not all that close to an enemy you can turn
off your light and run, and the radio will get quieter. If it
does not, you may have to fight. For example, outside the school
in the dark when all the dogs are around and you can hardly get
by them, do not stop. Turn off your light and run. Harry will
not get tired, and you will save time and ammunition.
Complete the game with the good ending to receive the
katana. Save, then begin the game again. Play through until reaching
the first house that was entered in old Silent Hill. Go to the
door that was previously locked in the hallway to find the katana.
Completing the game with the good ending will also allow access
to the channeling stone.
After defeating the giant larvae in the Silent Hill
town center, there should be a gun store. Hanging out of the broken
glass is the hunting rifle, loaded with only six shots. Note:
Save all the green boxes you find (rifle ammo), then use them
on Bosses. They are very effective.
Run all the way up Bachman Road and look on the left
going north. Very close to the end/top of the road is your car
with a health drink in it.
Use the following steps to find the mysterious red
liquid and get a better ending that includes Dr. Kaufman. First,
talk to Dr. Kaufman in Anne's Bar. Pick up the key that he left
behind. Go to the Inn and open his room with that key. There is
a cabinet next to the bathroom door. Click on it, and you will
be asked if you want to move it. Select "Yes". There
will be a hole in the floor. It will have a key in it, but you
cannot reach it. Go back outside and go to the rear entrance of
the building. There is a key pad besides the door. Enter "0886"
as a code and press "Enter". Go inside, and directly
in front of Harry will be a couch. There is a magnet on the couch.
Take the magnet and use it to get the key in Dr. Kaufman's room.
Next, return to the room where you found the magnet. Go through
the door that is to the left of the couch. It leads to a garage.
Click on the motorcycle. A message stating that the dust is wiped
away at the gas tank will appear. Use the key on the motorcycle's
gas tank to find the mysterious red liquid. Dr. Kaufman will enter
the room, take it away, and be very angry. Harry will say that
he wasted his time, however the ending will be different because
he uses the red liquid on Alessa. Lisa will also be in the ending,
and she will kill Kaufman. If you do this and save Cybil instead
of killing her, you will get the "Good+" ending, which
allows access to the Channeling Stone.
Bathroom teleporters in school
Enter and exit the girl's bathroom in the second part
of the school (through the clock tower). The game will transport
your character to the second floor bathroom, which is closed off
(along with the men's second floor bathroom) from the rest of
the second floor hallway. There are two boxes of handgun ammunition
and one box of shotgun shells in the second floor men's bathroom.
After collecting them, enter and exit the girl's bathroom on that
floor to return to the first floor.
Valves in alternate school
First, in the right valve: left, left; and in the left
Telling Dr. Kaufmann about drugs
When you are doing the things that Kaufmann left in
the pool hall, go to the Indian Runner Store, enter the combination
(0473). and go inside. Move around the counter, stand in front
of the white drawer, and press [X]. Answer "Yes"
to open it. Go all the way back behind the counter. Use the "Safe
Key" on the safe that is down by your feet. It will open,
and reveal three bags of drugs. You can not take them. Talk to
Kaufmann to mention them to him.
