After unlocking the handcannon, buy it from the merchant
(it will cost 0 pesetas). Save up your cash to upgrade it. When you can get the exclusive upgrade the handcannon gets 99. 9 firepower and unlimited ammo!
1 Shot 1 Kill
As you get farther in the game zombies will get harder to kill. To save ammo, if there are only 1 or 2 zombies, just use your pistol and shoot them in the head they will be dazed or dead if there dazed run to them and kick them then if there still alive hack them with your knife.
This is a glitch I discovered in the game. This
glitch makes the merchant invincible for a
time. To do this, equip the Mine Thrower, and,
at point blank range, aim and fire it at his
face. The mine should explode instantly. You
will be thrown back, but he will still be
there. Once this happens take out any weapon,
and shoot/throw it at him, he won't go down. I
just have 2 warnings about this glitch. First
of all, you will not be able to talk to him in
this state. Secondly he will only be in this
state until you go to a door that takes you to
another section (a door that has a mini cut
scene when it opens), and if you go back and
shoot him, he will die, and you won't see him
again. I also recommend that you have infinate
health using Gameshark or Action Replay, this
makes it so you don't have to worry about
killing yourself when you use the Mine Thrower.
Easy Boss Kills
After you beat the game for the first time, each
time you approach a boss in the game, you'll for
some reason always have enough money to purchase
a rocket launcher. Unless your saving for the
infinate launcher, it would be best to buy the
normal Launcher for the bosses.
Ambush Congregation In The Castle For $$
In the castle area, right after engaging the
Bugs in the sewers, you will see a large group
of Ganados Zealots in mid prayer. If you spook
them they will run away, and you miss out on
ALOT of money. Right before the sewer they give
you a flash grenade. SAVE IT. When preparing the
ambush on the congregation, go north then swing
across the chandelier. When on the other side
look down, and try to hit them all with a flash
grenade to stun. Immediately jump down and run
north to their exit point so you lock them in.
If you have an incendiary or frag grenade you
could use it here, other wise line them up for
some shotgun carnage. They will each drop a
spinel and their leader drops an Illuminados
pendant, worth around 32000 altogether.
To get a machine gun called the Chicago
Typewriter, succesfully get all 5 plagas samples
in Assignment Ada.
To get a Rocket Launcher with endless ammo, the
Infinite Launcher, complete story mode once. It
will be on sale for 1,000,000 pesetas.
If any zombie has a torch in their hand shoot their hand or arm and they will burn themselves.
Never Lose All Bullets
All of you ppl use those headshots to take care.
Not me. Go shoot a zombies knee. He'll get
stunned. Then go right to his face and press A.
Leon will kick and the zombie and the zombie is
dead. This saves a bunch of ammo, which is what
you'll care about as the game goes on.
Max Out Your Health
About halfway through chapter 2-1, you can
max out your health. When you get to El Gigante
(the giant, ogre guy), you can find a yellow herb
in the area. Look for a green herb in the houses
if you don't have one. Mix the herbs together and
use them. Let El Gigante kill you. You should be
able to find the yellow herb again and your
health will keep its extension. You can do this
until your health maxes out. This is the only
place it works, so do it there.
At times you can open a door to get the attention
of an enemy. Then step back till they are at the
door trying to get through. When and if this
happens double tap the A button to kick the door
open. If you did it correctly it will knock the
enemy down, then you press the A button when it
shows to suplex them and somestimes it kills them.
That's right, combine these with a green herb and
not only do you get your health back but your
maximum health will upgrade, just like an RPG.
Kill The 2nd Head Easier
Save your flash bang grenades because if you blow their head off and the zombie grows another one throw the flash bang and its head explodes this can save a lot of ammo.
Another Way To Kill Krauser
If you encounter krauser with Leon the best way to kill him and save ammo is by pulling out your knife and simultaneously slash him. Be sure to have a green herb or a first aid spray because chances are he will fight back.
Get Eaten By The Alligator
Go to the pier near the lake and shoot up in the
air with a pistol at least 7 times and the
alligator should come up out of the lake and eat
you right off the pier. Make sure your at the end
of the pier.
Get Pimp Suit
Beat the game on Professional. This will also give you Ashley's armor suit. She cant die!
A Really Good Gun
When you are searching for the little blue stones
everywhere when you find 10 you can get a gun for
free. For an even better gun shoot all of the
little blue stones (15 stones) you will get an
even better gun.
One Hit Kill El Gigante
Other people are gonna tell you to use a shotgun
or butterfly gun on el gigane, but really the
easiest way to beat him is using a rocket
launcher. It kills him in one shot, so don't
mind spending 30,000 to get the gun, cause after
you beat him your getting 15,000 back anyway. If
you don't have the launcher though, a few
grenades don't hurt.
Right before you fight him you'll come across a
camp and you go underground and meet up with the
merchant. By then you should be able to fully
upgrade the Broken Butterfly. Do it because when
fully upgraded it kills any boss in four to five
shots. I killed Krauser in five shots without
aiming at his head, even at his knees it counts.
One shot to his knees and one to his chest 2x,
then one final blow to his knees. Enjoy sending
this bad boy commando back to training.
Sell Dat Gun For A Little More
When you want to sell one of your guns for
another gun but you wont have enough, just reload
the gun and it will be worth more.
In some levels you have to walk around with
ashley behind you, and she cant do everything
you can do by herself. Like when you jump down
from a spot you will see "Catch" at the bottom
of the screen. Push The "A" button and she will
jump down and you will catch her. And There are
some spots where you can make her hide in
places. Do This With the "X" button.
Once your in the caslte always check behind
pictures of Saddler, you will find 5,000 gold
Ashley's White Underwear!
When you enter the castle stage, go to places
where you go down and catch Ashley from the top.
Except don't catch her, instead you pull out your
rifle (if you have one)and zoom in for look on a
white underwear! To get a better look buy the
better scope from the merchant.
When you first enter Pueblo, there is a house on
the top right (if you look on your map, the one
near the center spot) This place contains
ammunition and the shotgun and a grenade. If
you want the shotgun, do not go in there until
you've cleared out the villagers, because a
chainsaw villager will come! simply waste all
the villagers till they leave, then enter the
house, the shotgun will be right there, clear
out the houses without having fear of being
attacked for the chainsaw bagman can kill you in
one slice of his chainsaw, and since your in a
small building, this is very likely.
In the beginning of the game after you pass the
big house and small hut, you will encounter a
dog trapped in a bear trap. If you save him, he
will then help you defeat the first "El Gigante"
later in the game.If you don'y save him, you
will have to kill the "El Gigante" without his

Shotgun At The Start Of The Game
At the very first of the game, at the very first
town, after you kill all of the civilians,
search all the buildings, in one of the
buildings upstairs is a shotgun hanging on the
wall. There should be some ammo for it on the
After you defeat the zombie people from coming
in the house where Luis helps you, you could go
two ways. If you take the way near the sales man
then you will have to fight a chainsaw lady. You
should start off by making Ashely hide and kill
all the zombie people in the area. You will see
a pit but leave Ashely hiding in the trash can
thing, dont bring her with you. You need a
rocket launcher for this. Once you jump into the
pit the chainsaw lady will come with those
zombie people. All you have to do is aim your
rocket launcher at her and fire. You will be
hurt alot so be sure to have a first aid spray
or some herbs cause the villagers will jump into
the pit after you kill the chainsaw lady.
Kick That Door Open!
When opening a door, double-tap the A button
instead of pressing it once. If you're not at a
continue point, you will kick it open instead of
just pushing it!!
There are lots of boxes and barrels that you can
blast open with your gun, they will contain all
sorts of items, however, you also wanna keep your
bullets. Instead of shooting the boxes, hold down
L and press A, you'll swipe at the boxes with your
knife. This trick can be used to break windows,
display cases, locks and bear traps. Also if you
knock a villager down, try knifing them while
they're on the ground as one bullet does keep them
down for a little while.
Sell It For More!
You will obtain some items that aren't worth much
initially as a trade, however, if you add certain
jewels to them, they will be worth way more. The
easiest example is the beer stein. As is it's not
worth much, but it has room for 3 jewels to be
added. Adding the jewels will up its value!
Death Of A Salesmen
If you're feeling kinda bored ... or hostile and
you feel like screwing yourself over for the rest
of the game, simply find the merchant and shoot
him in the head. Now he's gone on you're on your own.
Running low on health without an herb in sight?
Simply find yourself a crow, a fish, a dog, a
chicken or a cow. Shoot them till they
moves-no-more and voila, you have a health item!
Man's Best Friend
Early on in the game you'll come across a wolf
caught in a bear trap. You can choose to help this
animal or leave it by pressing A. If you help the
dog, you will be rewarded later when he helps you
defeat a boss!
In the village and the cemetery you will notice
blue necklaces haging in trees and other areas.
Shoot these jewels with your gun. Destroying 10 of
them will unlock a weapon from the stranger in the
woods, a 9mm pistol called The Punisher.
