  • Blood vision

    Press R3 to activate your "blood" vision.

  • Ducking

    Press L3 to duck.

  • Rapid fire pistol

    Hold down the fire button (R1) on the pistol (Redeemer) to "fan" it, or shoot in rapid fire.

  • Hold two weapons

    Press Down to switch to your second weapon slot. This is useful if you are saving a rail rocket or shotgun. Also, press Up to switch between dynamite and splitter grenades (if available).

  • Quick clear

    While fighting a group of enigmas and there is a Dark Mark (Evil Tree), quickly destroy the tree before fighting any enemies. When it is destroyed, it will shoot a shockwave, instantly destroying all enemies in that area.

  • Easy completion of Darkwatch Outpost level

    To easily complete the last part of level 5, "Darkwatch Outpost", go up on the ledge by double jumping. When you fight the flying ladies, shoot them in the head when they come up to slash you. When the undead cowboys appears, either shoot them or ignore them. When the little slashing opponents who can jump high appear, just hit them. When you get the snipers, go up to them and hit them a few times. Note: It is recommended to have a shotgun for the flying ladies and a Reedemer for the little opponents.

  • Defeating Banshees

    Be careful while fighting banshees. If you cut off their arms and they still live, they will fire non-stop energy balls at you. Shoot them in the head once with a shotgun or twice with just about everything else. Sharpshooters should use a high powered rifle to zoom in close. Aim between the eyes, then fire and its head will roll off (at least on the ground).

  • Defeating Lazaurus

    When fighting Lazaurus for the final time, hide in the house when he is using his twister move; it will shield you. Also, when he shoots his fireballs and smoke clouds, shoot them; they will blow up and you will be unharmed.

  • Defeating Reapers

    When fighting Reapers (the undead with two scythes or cleavers), it is best to conserve ammunition and melee with the shotgun. The blade on the end of this weapon will kill the Reapers in one hit. When there is more than one reaper in front of you, backpedal to take them on in a single file line.

  • Final battle opponent

    Once you defeat Lazaurus, if you choose to break the spell of the west, in the final battle you will fight Tala in her vampire form. If you choose to become the new lord of vampires you will fight your ghost-friend Cassidy, when she is an angel, then kill Tala in the intermission sequence.
