Highlight the "New Game" option at the main
menu. Then, hold [Square] + [Circle] + [L1] + [R2]
+ [Select] + [Up] + [X].
Some useful pointers to take note of when playing in hard mode:
In certain levels guards and terrorists are in different locations
than usual. (For example, levels 2, 5, 11, 15, 16, 17)
Super Agent mode
In certain levels guards and terrorists patrol in different routes.
(For example, levels 2, 5, 11, 15, 16, 17)
Manual targeting does not automatically start at head level.
Manual targeting the head does not come up with a head shot.
Terrorists and guards without Flak Jackets generally need a few
more bullets to be taken out.
Pause game play and highlight the "Weaponry"
option. Then hold [Select] + [L2] + [Circle] +
[Square] + [X] (in that order). A sound will confirm
correct code entry. Enter the options screen and select "Cheats".
Super Agent mode allows enemies that have flak jackets to be killed
with a single shot.
Pause game play and highlight the "Briefing"
option. Then, hold [Right] + [L1] + [R2] + [Circle]
+ [X]. A sound will confirm correct code entry. Enter the
options screen and select "Cheats". Alternately, successfully
complete the game to unlock all but four of the game's movies.
The final four movies are unlocked when the game is successfully
completed under the hard difficulty setting.
The first bonus movie is unlocked after Mission 5 (McKenzie Airbase
Exterior) under the hard difficulty setting. Lian will say "Got
it" as she is flying away in the helicopter to confirm the
secret. The movie is called "Before and After I" and
is on disc 1. It has some behind-the-scenes footage of an early
rendition of Gabe. It contains CG footage of Gabe running through
the missile silo from the first Syphon Filter. Gabe does
not look very detailed and the silo looks completely different.
Then the movie transitions to the finished version we saw in the
game, with Gabe confronting Markinson.
The second bonus movie is unlocked after Mission 10 (Morgan) under
the hard difficulty setting. Gabe will say "Got it"
after he finishes receiving the incoming radio call. The movie
is called "Before and After II" and is on Disc 1. It
has some behind-the-scenes footage of a later version of Gabe
and an early version of Lian. It shows Gabe and Lian sneaking
through the Costa Rican rain forest from the opening movie of
the first Syphon Filter. Gabe has a gray short-sleeved shirt on
and camouflage pants and Lian is dressed in a black tank top and
camouflage pants -- she kind of looks like Lara Croft without
the ponytail. Then, the movie transitions to the finished version
we saw in the game, with Gabe and Lian sneaking through the forest
and coming across the burnt out lab.
The Third bonus movie is unlocked after Mission 16 (Aljir Prison
Escape) under the hard difficulty setting. Lian will say "Got
it" after she and Gregorov reach the escape point. The movie
is called "Deleted Scenes" and is on Disc 2. It has
four FMV clips that were not used in the game. The first one shows
the Chinese general demanding shipment of the Syphon Filter virus.
The second shows Archer in the Blackhawk swooping low over Gabe,
who is on the back of the burning United Pacific train. The third
shows Gabe and Teresa in the beat-up rental van they use during
the Moscow missions (where Lian is chasing Gregorov) -- the van
will not start and Gabe gets out to push. The fourth shows a bag
lady pushing a shopping cart across the street in the New York
Slums district -- Mara Aramov's limousine smashes the shopping
cart and then screeches around a corner.
The fourth bonus movie is unlocked after completing the game under
the hard difficulty setting. The movie is called "Congratulations!
Party time!" and is on Disc 2. It is kind of amusing, and
shows all the major characters dancing on the floor of the Moscow
disco, Club 32.
Unlocking cheats through multi-player mode
Another way to unlock cheats is to start a game in
two-player mode. Play it all the way through (if you set it for
someone to die nine times, someone has to die nine times). Once
done, go to one player mode and pause the game play. Enter options
screen press [X]. Go to cheats some may have been unlocked.
Have two player match end in a draw. Do this by setting the number
of kills needed, then playing in a level with grenades. Throw
a grenade so both players are killed. If done correctly, player
one should get credit for two match wins. Disc 1 and 2 Movies
and Level Select will be unlocked in the single player mode cheats.
Bunker multi-player stage
Find the PK-102 in the Moscow Streets level. There
is a point where two cars will try to run you over at the same
time, and you have to leap and grab a pole above you to avoid
them. After this happens, drop down, and go back and search the
two newly crashed cars. Face the tail ends of the cars. The car
on the right has the PK-102 inside. Warning: The cars are on fire,
so search carefully. Also, after they crash an enemy will get
out of each car. At least one of them has a M-79 grenade launcher.
Caves multi-player stage
Find the binoculars in the Colorado Interstate 70 level
you must find the Binoculars. They are located behind the first
closed door on your left that you reach. Press [Triangle]
to open the door. This reveals a passage. Go left, open another
door, and enter the room. The box containing the binoculars is
in this room.
D.C. City Park multi-player stage
Find the dirty laundry in the New York City Slums District
level in one of the washing machines in the first Sniper Building
of the level. This is the building that is similar to the slums
district level in multi-player mode.
While in the flaming building in New York City, you should come
across a set of laundry machines. Run to the last one closet to
the wall, and the words "Dirty Laundry" will appear.
Press "Action", and you will put a coin in the machine followed
by a loud "Yes I Got It!".
Jungle multi-player stage
Kill Archer at the very end of the C-130 Crash Site
level with one shot (head shot). It is recommended that you use
the silenced sniper rifle to kill him because of its zooming capabilities.
Pharcom Incubator Lab multi-player stage
Find the girlie mag in the Pharcon Lab, after you taze
the guards. It is located after you go through the Mars exhibit.
Rockies multi-player stage
Find the H11 sniper rifle on the first level (Colorado
Rockies). The H11 is near the waterfall and ice arch where you
first meet Chance. Instead of jumping over the waterfall chasm,
hang from the edge of the chasm and drop down into the tunnel.
The H11 is in there.
Surreal multi-player stage
In Volkov Park, kill the first guard to the left very
quickly before he destroys the car. After you kill him, collect
the BIZ-2 in the car he did not destroy.
Additional multi-player characters

level (New York Sewers) to unlock the following seven multi-player
characters: Ninja Gabe, Scuba Lian, Unit 1 (the final Boss), Dr.
Elsa Weissinger, Uri Gregorov, Lawrence Mujari, and SWAT officer
(helped in the New York Slums level). The M-79 is near the end
of the level (in the parking garage). Near the top of the stairs
is an open doorway into the parking garage, where a black van
is driving past. Instead of exiting the stairwell at that location,
keep climbing up the stairs. There will be five Agency operatives
scattered on the landings above armed with silenced HK-5s, grenades,
and M-79s. Use the M-79 to clear them out. The M-79 is on the
Complete the C-130 Crash Site level under three minutes to unlock
