Rocket Launcher

Finish the game in under three hours without rescuing anyone. If done correctly, a rocket will appear after the credits. Save the game. Then, start the game that was just saved and the rocket launcher with infinite ammunition will be available. Note: The rocket launcher does not shoot well upwards or downwards.

No Need To Fight Tyrant

When playing as Jill, after coming back from the Guardhouse and fighting the snake again, you find youself in a hole and Barry drops the rope. When he says he will go and get another, don't wait for him, just carry on through the gravestone, you can get out at the other end. If all goes well, at the final sequence instead of fighting Tyrant you will go out onto the Helicopter Pad and the Helecopter will pick u up straight away.

Special Key

Finish the game with Chris or Jill. If you are playing with Chris you must escape with Jill and Rebecca. If you are playing Jill you must escape with Chris and Barry. After that start your saved game (which is just a new game) and you'll get a key which you can take to the room with the large mirror and open the closet that you can never get open with the Special Key.


Enter the room with the number pad in the dormitory. To create V-Jolt mix UMB No. 2 with water to create the No. 3 chemical. Then mix UMB No. 2 with UMB No. 4 to create Yellow-06. Then mix No. 3 with UMB No. 4 to create No. 7. Next mix Yellow-06 with No. 7 to get No. 13. Finally make more No. 3 and then mix it to No. 13 to make V-Jolt. An easy way to remember is 1+2=3, 3+4=7, 4+2=6, 6+7=13, 13+3=16 (Water=1.)
