  • Alternate ending

    Successfully complete Ada Wong's campaign to view a secret video after the credits.

  • Infinite ammunition for Wing Shooter

    While playing as Leon in his campaign, if you run out of extra ammunition for the Wing Shooter, but still have a few bullets remaining in the magazine, aim down the sights with LT, then press Y to switch to Leon's duel-wielding mode. Press Y to switch back again, and you should now have a full magazine.

  • Quicker reloading

    You can make a weapon's reloading animation shorter by quickly selecting an item (grenade, remote mine, first aid spray), and then switching back to your weapon. Alternately, press [Fire] (without aiming) to perform a gun-butt with the weapon and complete the magazine reload; however, this make your character do the gun-butt animation. This, and other actions (taking cover, diving, etc.), may be faster or slower than weapon switching, but will depend on the situation you are in. These methods allow you to cut down the animation delay periods for certain weapons (notably the grenade launcher), letting you shoot the weapon a few moments earlier. However, these tricks do not apply to weapons with manual actions, such as the six-shot sniper rifle, regular shotgun, Piers' Anti-Material Rifle, etc.

  • Alternate sniper rifles uses

    The sniper rifle is obviously effective at inflicting substantial damage on distant enemies, but by using the quick-shot move, it can double as a close-quarter weapon. This is helpful when ammo is scarce for close range weapons like the shotgun, Desert Eagle, and Elephant Killer. Piers' anti-material rifle is a one hit-kill on most enemies near or far.
