Successfully complete Assignment Ada and watch the credits.
They will be in gray scale. However, if you select "Yes" when asked "Watch the ending movie again?", it will be replayed in color in a smaller frame. If you watch it once more when prompted, it will play is full wide screen color. They will alternate each time you choose to replay the credits.
Remain idle at the title screen. Eventually two trailers will begin playing and begin to cycle.
If you destroy all blue targets in the beginning you can get a free Punisher from the Merchant 2 guns before you can buy it. This pistol hits two targets when you get it, and five when you get exclusive. This makes it work well for crowd control.
Riot Gun one shot kills:
To do this, you must fill the entire Firepower, Firing Speed, Reload Speed and Capacity of the weapon. When you shoot a Ganado or a Los Luminados, one shot will kill them.
Note: The same happens with the Chicago Typewriter.
Toss a flash grenade in the center of a group of birds. All of them will die instantly, leaving lots of Pesetas. This also works with the Granadas when their heads are transformed.
Defeating Gothic Illuminados:
When you are in the castle and you fire at the Gothic Illuminados, it is best to fireat their knees. They will fall on them and allow you to use a suplex move instead of a kick. You will then throw them over your head and smash their head in the ground.
Note: In mercenary mode, the same goes for the rest of the mercenaries.
Defeating J.J. (mini gun man):
An easier way to kill J.J is to first hit him in the head with a weaker gun. When he is holding his head, attack him with a more powerful weapon. If he recovers quickly, just use the same strategy. This also works on the military base during the Mercenaries mini-game.
Look out for crows. They sometimes drop valuable items and are usually found in groups.
To kill crows, shoot them from a distance. If you are close and there are other crows nearby they will fly away. An easier way to kill a group of them is to toss a flash grenade into their midst and watch the items drop.
In the area where the room is filled with lava, enemies will appear on pillars with horses that shoot fire at you. Instead of waiting for a clear shot to shoot the man on the pillar, simply shoot at the chain that is holding the pillar. If one of the chains breaks, the entire pillar will fall. This makes it easier to get through the room. If you queue all of the pillars to appear and shoot them all down, once you shoot the last one down no more enemies will appear in the room, even the ones that fall from the ceiling.
Sewer: Black Bass recovery:
You can kill the fish and use them as recovery items in the sewer area shortly after the beginning of Chapter 1-2. It is a little after the place where you face the two enemies who throw dynamite at you.
Eggs for Ashley:
There are three types of eggs, white, brown, and golden. Collect these, equip them, and fire on Ashley. They will not harm her and it is funny. Aim from a distance to get used to them. They are lighter than a grenade and fly far when thrown. Note: She will duck when in close proximity.
Use egg to kick people:
Toss an egg at a Ganado's face. They will hold their face, letting you get in a kick.
Note: Do not do this in a crowd or you will get hit.
Mine Thrower ammunition:
It is possible to find ammunition for the Mine Thrower. Kill any normal enemy with the Mine Thrower to yield one dart for ammunition.
When Leon is being choked, he will be told that he has the same blood. Leave the room, then return. You will be choked again by same person, only this time Ada comes to the rescue.
At the end of the game, as Leon and Ashley fall into the water on the speedboat, you can see a rainbow for a few seconds.
Castle: Easy money:
Look behind every painting of Saddler to find 5,000 Pesetas.
Church: Unlimited villagers:
When you first get to the church, defeat everyone in the area.
Then, return to the church and shoot the bell above. Villagers will arrive in a groups of three to six Gonados. You can continue this process as you see fit.
Church: Getting items:
After you get the key after being choked by Chief Mendez, gi to the church and kill everyone.
You can then shoot the bell above the church. You should hear "There! He is there!" and a group of Gonados should be in the graveyard. This process can be repeated five times or less, but they drop items for your inventory.
Separate Ways: Leon's jacket:
In mission 2, rescue Luis. The second time you pass the village after the intermission sequence when Luis and Leon are carried away, blow away most of the villagers with a grenade. When you get to the exit to continue the mission you will see a villager and two others. Kill them and check the first villager you saw. He will be wearing Leon's jacket.
Hidden intermission sequence:
After defeating Del Lago (crocodile), after the intermission sequence, go back across the lake where you got the boat. Head up the trail. An intermission sequence should begin.
Leon will be surrounded by wolves.
Note: You can also go back that way and fight El Gigante, but you must go all the way back to get the Insignia for the church.
Hiding the number of times killed ratio:
To avoid seeing a number of times killed, continue until you get to a chapter end. When instructed to save, cancel the saving process.
When you unlock and start a new game with the second pair of costumes (Leon's gangster and
Ashley's armor), watch Leon as he tries to catch Ashley whenever you need her to come down from a raised platform or ladder. He will fall on the ground on one knee, and as he comes up from the ground, he grabs his back in pain.
