Hint: More Money for Beerstein and Elegant Mask
When you find these items do not sell them right away. You can increase the value of the items with gems.
Submitted by MRS street racer
Hint: Reload Your Upgraded Gun
Whenever you upgrade your gun's capacity it fills the weapon with ammo. So don't reload before you buy the upgrade. This works great with weapons that have very little ammo (such as the magnum revolver 'Broken Butterfly'); after you use up the gun's magazine, simply look for the merchant and upgrade the ammo capacity.
Hint: Quick Aiming
There is a quick way to center your gun when aiming up or down. Simply tap the L1 button (takes out your knife) and you will quickly aim straight ahead.

Hint: Raise Max Health
If you mix: GREEN HERB + RED HERB + YELLOW HERB. It restores your health completely and raises your max health.

Hint: The First Shotgun
There are three main buildings in the village where you first see the chainsaw not-zombie. The shotgun is in the northeast building, on the second floor of the house.
Submitted by staarx
Hint: Los Gigante
In Chapter 1-1, along the path towards the village you will run along a white dog trapped in a bear trap. If you help this dog he comes in handy later when you are fighting Los Gigante for the first time. About midway through the fight, you will hear the dog bark and he will come to your aid. Los Gigante becomes distracted, and begins to attack the dog rather than you.

Hint: Funny Character Animations
When Ashley is standing on a ledge and you are below her, look up at her and she will hold down her skirt and say something about you being a pervert and one or two other funny lines.
Submitted by Cueballthebald
Hint: Double Broken Butterfly Ammo
If you buy the broken butterfly before you find it, you can hold twice the ammo. The shopkeeper will not sell you this gun if you already have it.

  • Handgun - Increases the chance of a headshot being fatal by a factor of five (5% or 20%, take your pick).

Hint: Fishing
If you are low on health spray and herbs when at the lake take aim at the fish and fire away. When you hit a fish it floats. Jump in the boat and ride over the fish and take it. Depending on the size of the fish it will give you health.
Submitted by WormAQ
Hint: Lake Shooting
When you are at the lake before you face Del Lago (the thing in the water) stand on the dock right before the water and start firing into the water. The creature will not appreciate this.

Hint: Quick Side Turn
While holding R, tilt the C-Stick left or right, then quickly release and pull the R trigger again. You will turn almost instantly towards that direction.

Hint: Get Two Attacks on Saddler
When fighting Saddler, knock him down and stand near his eyeball head so that the "Knife" action appears. Shoot him instead and then start tapping "A" to do the action attack as well.
Submitted by Mithron
Hint: Big Money
In the Castle after you get out of the sewer you will appear at the top of a large ball room wear there are some monks doing a sacrifice. If you alert them they all run away but if you throw a grenade down every single person you kill will drop a spinel or a los illuminados pendent.

Hint: Green Or White?
Leon can't leave Ashley when he transitions into a new area (signified by the blurring effect); however, he can leave Ashley safe in the corner of a dangerous area then call her over when its safe. You can instantly tell if Leon is about to leave an area if the OPEN or context command is printed in green. If the command is printed in white, Leon will simply open the door to another section of the area. Use this to plan out where Leon can leave Ashley to brave the dangers ahead.
Submitted by djraver108
Hint: Chasing Ashley
The enemies who captures Ashley will seek to leave by the nearest area exit; these are the exits that have the "green" OPEN or context command as opposed to the normal "white" text. If they manage to reach one of these exits, then the game is over. When leaving Ashley to do stuff alone, be sure not to leave her near a green exit door.
Submitted by djraver108
Hint: Hide And Wait In The Village
When you first get to the village and you are having trouble escaping the chainsaw maniacs and other enemies, you can hide in a safe spot. Go to the tall tower in the east side of the village (check your map) and climb up the long ladder. The villagers cannot climb that particular ladder. This also works when you need to place Ashley in a safe spot when exploring this particular area.

Hint: Defeating Verdugo (Alien/Salazar's Right Hand) Boss
Not using the RL makes this fight harder, and in my opinion more fun, so try this if you choose not to buy a RL or don't have any cash. When you freeze him get close so the kick option appears, kick him down and he will stay frozen alot longer, allowing you to unload more rounds into him. Another tip if your using the BB when out of ammo freeze him at the next station reload THEN kick him over, you can still get at least 4 shots off. He will take about about 14 BB rounds at 20 damage a piece and a couple of Leon kicks to the face before he meets his doom. Plus you get an item worth 11000 Ptas for killing him.

Hint: Church Bell Hijinks
When you get to the graveyard for the first time, Run up by the church and shoot the bell, 3 not-zombies will come running from where you entered, shoot, grab items, repeat.
Submitted by Sneaky Freaky
Hint: Avoid Being A Victim Of The Saw
Erly in the game, when Leon first enters the village, he should avoid the door that belongs to the building where Leon can get a free shotgun (the largest northeast building). Simply do not run into the house that triggers the cutscene. While Leon will still need to kill zombies to progress, he will not have to deal with the chainsaw enemies, who may be fairly tough on the out-set. After the bell rings, feel free to enter the house and collect the items and shotgun inside.

Easter Egg: King Leon

Submitted by Michael
Easter Egg: Capcom Game Promo
Late in the game, Leon will stumble across a weapon aptly called the Killer 7, an obvious tip of the hat to Capcom's Killer 7 videogame.
Easter Egg: S.T.A.R.S. Warning
Similar to the FBI Warning on commercial movies, a S.T.A.R.S. and Racoon City Police Department warning is in the game. Check out the end of the credits.
Submitted by Mariocrowd
Easter Egg: Capcom R.I.P.
In the graveyard just behind the entrance hall (the one you get to by the door on the stair landing) go to the fenced area. The camera angle will show some tomb stones in the foreground. On them is some Greek lettering. Chi alpha pi chi omicron mu. This spells out CAPCOM.
