|Martyr: Temporary invincibility||100%|
| Martyr's "Retribution" Edge returns a certain amount of damage to |
any enemy that hits her (depending on its level). However, Martyr
herself will take no damage while Retribution is active, even from
Bosses or their abilities. *** Retribution will drain health as
well as conviction. Use this on annoying Bosses such as the Teddy
Bear (no more vomiting deaths) and the Vampire Boss.
| If you kill every zombie and creature in a level, you get 3 |
extra lives. The best way to do this is to keep attacking from
distance and not go forward until every creature in that section is
|Alternate Hunter mode||100%|
| Win the game to unlock the "Alternate Hunter Mode" |
option at the Special Features screen.
| Defender's Healing Edge can heal all Hunters near her when it gets to |
level 2 and 3. In level 2, hunters must come close to Defender. In level
3, Hunters can be a few steps away.
| An easy way to avoid taking damage from zombies and other creatures |
is to stand on top of an object (for example, cars or trucks),
staying away from the edges, and blasting away. If the object can
explode, blow it up before you get on or it may explode while you
are on top.
| In the catacombs, if you do not see the crack, slice at the wall |
that points north from the screen. It should give off white puffs
when attacking the correct wall.
|Defeating the School Yard Boss||100%|
| Stand in the trash can. You can kill all the zombies at the |
beginning, then when he appears, just run back to the trash can and
kill everything that comes at you. Watch the boss for his ground
attacks and jump up to avoid them. If he starts to hit you, jump
out, run around, then go back to the trash can. When you jump out
you can always run to the Glyph and heal before returning.

|Freeze your enemies||100%|
| If you are running or walking around and notice a Zombie or tree |
whip spawning (coming to life), get there fast enough and stand on
top of the place that it is appearing from. The enemy will be frozen
and unable to hurt you. Be careful, as many times you may get stuck
with the enemy and be unable to fight. If this does happen, take out
your melee weapon and hack away until you are free. *** This does
not work with small enemies (dogs, rats, alligators and skitters).
|Defeating the Teddy Bear Boss||100%|
| Either wait until he dives before slice him with your knife/ax, or |
wait until he tries his puke attack and hit him from behind. This
may take a while, but you should not lose a life when fighting this
Boss. There is a Health Glyph in the lower left corner. Do not kill
the blue flying enemies, as they just respawn as soon as they die.
Play at least with 2 players, with one being Martyr. First,
destroy all the benches for easier movement. Have Martyr get the
bear's attention then run around in a circle. You are faster than
the bear and he will chase you, but will not be able to hit. While
he is chasing you, have your partner unload on him. When he gets
down to low health, he might try to puke on you. Just get his
attention again and repeat. If you run fast enough, you might be
able to chase him, and hit him from behind.
As any character, you need to master using the Analog-stick and
C-stick simultaneously to run backwards and fire your weapon at the
same time. Run in circles around the room, picking up shotguns and
machine guns. Picked up shotguns seem to do the most damage.
Continue running backwards and firing the weapons you have picked
up. Disregard the blue ghosts. As long as you are running, they
cannot hit you. Using this technique, you can defeat the Teddy Bear
without losing any lives or having to use the glyphs, relatively
The easiest and fastest way to kill the Teddy Bear is to have at
least 2 people. Have one person go in front of him, with another
person behind him. Both should use melee attacks on him. The person
in front may get hurt with puking, however if they stand as close up
against the bear as possible, the puke should go directly over their
head. Another way to kill him is to continuously run around inside
the church in a circular motion, then run backwards while shooting.
It is also good to take out the blue ghost enemies; after killing
each of them once or twice, they will not return. Martyr and
Defender are recommended for this Boss; they are fast and can easily
outrun him. However, Avenger's infinite shotgun is also strong and
therefore very effective.
| Make sure you have at least 10 rockets and 90 machine gun rounds |
before you enter the battle. There is a rocket launcher at the
bottom of the room before you enter. Take out your rocket launcher
and run in a circle, avoiding Carpenter. When his chair is
destroyed, take out your main gun, run in an oval, and keep
shooting. This will take a long time, but you will not lose a life.
| In the level with the path to the mansion (with the dogs and |
fountain), walk along the left side wall. You will find a small area
behind some trees with some weapons and a permanent power-up. Watch
out for the dogs in there
| When you encounter Nathaniel (the Wolf Boss), use a shotgun. Within |
4 shotsm he should run away. It may take the Marty a few more.
After you get rid of him, just run into the next room.
|Main Yard 1: Hidden power-up||100%|
| You will start by some basketball courts and brick buildings. Stay |
to the far right of the screen and continue moving forward until you
see a metal guardrail that fell down. Walk up that and follow the
path until you have to turn left. As soon as you can, turn right to
find a permanent accuracy power-up glyph. Press Action over it and
your accuracy will increase. A flamethrower is also near the glyph .
|How to avoid damage||100%|
| The easiest way to avoid taking damage from zombies and other creatures |
is to stand on top of an object (for example, cars or trucks), staying
away from the edges, and blasting away. If the object can explode, blow it
up before you get on or it may explode while you are on top.
By activating the Demand Edge harms your hunter -- use it sparingly.
| Press Up , Down , X , Y (2), without getting any special weapons, |
during game play to get the best version of each weapon. *** The
directions are done on the D-pad and the code will increase the
difficulty level significantly. This code can only be enabled one
|Avenger: Back on fire||100%|
| To get Avenger's back on fire, simply select his melee weapon, |
activate his Cleave Edge, then select any other weapon in your
arsenal. Avenger will put the "burning" axe onto his back, giving
the impression that it is on fire. *** The higher the level
Avenger's Cleave Edge is, the longer his back will be on fire.

|School Yard: Easy completion||100%|
| Make sure you can spend an hour or so killing this monster alone. It |
is better to have Defender or Martyr because they are faster. When
you 1st appear, kill all the zombies that are near you. Explore
the street, picking up the machine gun and killing zombies on the
way. Follow the fence all the way up to the opening. Be careful as
there are many zombies and a few gargoyles. Once you have killed
most of the zombies, go into the school area. Stay away from the
gate so you do not activate the Boss too early. Explore a little
bit, killing all of the zombies, getting health, and picking up the
machine gun in the little playground near the exit. After you are
sure everyone is dead, follow the fence (on the inside) until the
intermission is activated and you have to kill the Boss. There are
2 ways to kill him: running around the fence shooting him while he
is stuck; or the complicated but more reliable way as follows. Once
the Boss is following you, go into the school yard and up to the
tree. Stay next to the fence and wait until he is near. Jump over
any ground attacks and kill the skitters. Once he is near the tree,
quickly run away and go on to the other side of the fence (you
should be on the street). Shoot him with everything you have,
minding the skitters. It will take awhile but you will not use any
|Catacombs: Hidden power-up||100%|
| When you enter the room with the 2 sisters/innocents, defeat all |
the enemies but do not leave. Search the walls in that room and find
the spot where the wall is cracked. Attack it with any weapon. It
will eventually collapse. Inside are some special weapons (shotgun,
etc.) and the permanent strength power-up.
|Defeat the enemy with knives in his hands||100%|
| Load up your rocket launcher before you go in the electric chair |
room. Run to the middle of the room, avoiding him. Run around in
circles with the Launcher pointed at the chair. Keep shooting it
while you run in circles. Make your circles just big enough to avoid
him and do not accidentally shoot him at point blank range or you
will lose a life. Change your direction when he changes his. The
chair should explode after awhile. You can then just shoot him at
your leisure or slice him up a bit before regenerating your health.
You should be able to kill him without losing a life.
|Defeating the man with the knives in his hands||100%|
| To defeat him, you must destroy the chair at the top of the room. |
First, get the rocket launcher and flame thrower found during the
level. When fighting him, run in circles so he cannot get you
(Martyr recommended) while shooting the chair with the launcher.
When you run out of rockets, use the flame thrower. *** The chair
will shoot out blasts of "energy" unexpectedly. Burn the chair from
the sides. With the chair out of the way, run in circles while
shooting him. If you run out of rockets and gas for the flame
thrower restart the game, as the other guns do almost nothing to the
|Defeating the last Boss||100%|
| As any character, grab the machine gun at the lower left of the |
screen. Use any weapon to hurt the Boss. When he goes to recharge,
run to the big window in the room and unload your Uzi, Shotgun,
Chainsaw, or other weapon into it until it breaks open and the Boss
dies. You can pretty much ignore him when he returns from getting
charged, since you will be standing on a Health Glyph while
destroying the window. Vampire and sunlight equals death.
When you get to the last Boss, do not free the 3 locked up
innocents unless you have low remaining lives. Freeing them will
make the Boss have 2 more images of himself, creating 3
Bosses, but only one will be real.
When playing in multi-player mode, have player one destroy the
window while the rest of the players harm the Boss.
| Do a running attack towards a gargoyle with your melee weapon, and |
keep pulling the trigger as fast as possible. Your hunter keeps
attacking and you will not get hit.
To defeat gargoyles easily, select your melee weapon and attack the
its right side. Because you are standing to the side of its body, it
will attack you with its tail. Since this attack swings the
tail,-block 90 degrees counter-clockwise and you will be out of its
path. The gargoyle will end its turn facing you, so you will have to
move to its side again. If done correctly, you will avoid all
| Win the game to unlock the "Nightmare Mode" option |
at the Special Features screen.
| Use Judge. His crossbow kills them in one shot. *** This refers to |
the white ladies that have machine guns and can move very fast, and
not the Boss to the mansion.
|Killing enemies through fences||100%|
| Use the following trick to kill enemies without taking damage. When |
in a level with fences, such as at the Prisons, stand behind one
with your unlimited long-range weapon and fire through. If done
correctly, you should be able to kill anything you see through the
fence. You can also walk through a fence. Once on the other side,
wait until zombies or other enemy appears, then and run back through
the door. Fire at them until they are dead.
| Activating the Demand Edge harms your hunter -- use it sparingly. |
Hint: Healing Edge:
Defender's Healing Edge can heal all Hunters near her when it gets
to level 2 and 3. *** On level 2, hunters must come close to
Defender. On level 3, Hunters can be a few steps away.
Hint: Rare weapons:
Win the game within 3 hours for different
pick-ups during game play.
| It is best to stay near Hadrian (the opponent with the talking arm). |
If you move in the room while fighting him, 2 of the 1st level
Bosses (with many arms) and 4 of the enemies that hit you with
their eyelashes (with 2 legs) will attack.
| Choose Judge when playing the game in single player mode. *** The |
flaming crossbow arrows visible in the FMV sequence are not actually
in the game.
|Defeating the werewolf||100%|
| On the levels after Arkady when the blue wolves chase you, do not |
waste any ammunition or conviction on them. Save it up for the
werewolf, and use special weapons or conviction on him. You will
need all the items you can get for the last Boss, especially if you
do not have a lot of lives or are Martyr or Defender.
|Defeating Arkady the wolf||100%|
| Make sure you have a couple of rockets remaining. When he tries to |
combo you, get away. Take out your rocket launcher, and before he
ends his combo, launch a rocket. For help, use the Ward Edge on all
Bosses. If you use the Ward Edge, take out your melee weapon and
slash from behind. Watch out for his 360 attack.
|Avenger: 360 degree attack special||100%|
| When there are many enemies in your area, use the cleave ax special. |
Go in the middle of them, hold R , then release. This will take out
many of the nearby enemies.
| In order to protect Kaylie and get her to the church alive, it is |
easier the more people that you have. The more people there are, the
more of you there are to watch her and fight off enemies. Also, when
fighting the gargoyles with Kaylie, have at least 2 people
playing. Have one or 2 people stay with Kaylie and protect her
from little monsters such as zombies. Have the others kill the
gargoyles with melee attacks, which at the same time distracts them,
and they will not attempt to hurt Kaylie.
| In most levels, there are many fences. If you do not have many |
lives, or just want to save the ones you have, simply shoot the
zombies through the fence. When your are done, go in the fenced area
and wait for more zombies to appear. When they do, exit the fenced
area and continue shooting. *** Avengers unlimited gun and the
shotgun will shoot through, but the other hunters may not.
Hint: Defeating the Mansion Boss:
To defeat the Boss with Judge, use WordOfPower. When Judge's
conviction disappears, go up close with the sword and slash. The
Boss will kill you, but you will return with more conviction. Now,
use WordOfPower and repeat. To defeat the Boss with Judge and
Defender, use the same as with just Judge, but have Defender get all
the special weapons on the level. While Judge does his attacks, have
Defender stay back and shoot.
When fighting the Mansion Boss, keep yourself directly behind him
and kill him using any weapon. He cannot hurt you from that position
unless he turns around and faces you. The key is to face his back.
The easiest and fastest to kill the Mansion Boss is with a chainsaw.
Get behind him as much as possible and use the chainsaw completely
to kill him quickly.
