Silent Hill: Downpour Walkthrough

Table of Contents

Centennial Building

  1. Head through the next door. Pick up the map on the wall, then head around the bars and through the door. Once in the parking garage turn left around the corner and head for the fire truck. Pick up the hose to carry it over to the nearby gate. Rut back to the truck and press A to use the controls and pump out the water.
  2. Head over to the police car, open the trunk and grab UV flashlight. Grab a weapon and use it to break the padlock on the gate, then head downstairs. Head down the hallway and pick up the security card on the wheelchair.
  3. Head back up the stairs where there will be three of those ceiling-crawling monsters waiting for you. If you don’t want to mess with them (which you won’t), turn right, then make a right at the next corner. Get to the gate, pull out the key card and use it to unlock the gate.
  4. Turn left through the doorway. Grab the First-Aid kit on the wall, turn back around and press the button on the table to see the security camera feed. Head back through the open gate, go straight and head through the double gates which should now be open. Press A top open the elevator doors, then take it down.
  5. Pull out your flashlight and pick up the red axe to the right. Follow the path around (don’t be alarmed by the spooky noises). When you get to the end, hop over the box on its side. Go right and break through the boarded up walkway.
  6. Continue forward, squeeze through the tight space, then kill the shrieker chick that will sneak up on you. Turn left and head through the door at the dead end. Pick up the map on the left then proceed forward.
  7. Following the huge crash, turn left and follow the path around. Examine the creepy mannequin to the left, then turn around and push the ladder over to the left to the far left wall. If you have a weapon in your hand drop it, and climb up the ladder.
  8. Proceed forward and head through the door. Turn right, pick up the map on the wall, then go through the door on the right. Head around to the next door. Walk past the elevator and turn right down the stairs.
  9. Pull out the UV flashlight and follow the lines to the right. After you hear the glass break, turn around and avoid the attacks of the silhouette figure. Turn around, run past it and pick up the fire extinguisher on the wall—use that to kill her.
  10. Continue to follow the lines to the elevator, then turn right and head through the door. Walk around the boxes and enter through the door on the right. Turn right and head down the long hallway. Turn through the door on the right (where the footprints lead to).
  11. Pick up the gun next to the typewriter and examine the corpse in the chair to pick up an ID. Exit the room, turn left and use the ID card to gain access through the door on your left down the hall.
  12. Examine the desk on the right. The mess off papers should read “851136” to complete the puzzle (it’s kind of tricky, but not that you have the numbers, you don’t really have to complete it if you don’t want to). Exit the room and go through the door directly across from you. Walk around the desk and through the next door in this room.
  13. Turn right and head through the door in the hallway. Turn left and head up the stairs. Turn right through the door, then input the code you just discovered (851136) into the key pad to open the door on the right.
  14. Go through the next door, then another door in the tiny hallway. Turn right, test out that gun and shoot the shrieker chick. Proceed forward and head through the door on the right. Walk over to the box (the UV light will reveal footprints) to climb up to the upper level.
  15. Walk forward and pick up the map on the wall, then turn around and climb through the big hole in the wall on the left. Walk around the hole in the ground in the next room. Pick up the First-Aid kit next to the lamp on the left, then carefully cross over the wooden beam.
  16. Once you cross the first one, pull out your gun and shoot and kill the three silhouette figures in the doorway to the right. Cross the next beam and turn right. Continue past the doorway and enter the next doorway on the right where you will find some bullets on the desk.
  17. Exit and enter through the other doorway. Turn left and hop through the hole in the wall. Go around and follow the footsteps to the ladder. Here it won’t ask you to press A, just stand an wait in front of the ladder for a second, then he’ll start to climb down.
  18. At the bottom, turn and exit through the door on your left. Enter through the door right across from you. Follow the footsteps to the left and pick up the slides on the desk. Exit the room and head back up the ladder.
  19. Go left into the next room and pick up a weapon in this room before heading through the double doors in the back right corner.
  20. Fight off the attacking silhouettes and run to the back of the room toward the elevator. In order to prevent the silhouettes from continuing to appear, press A to move the wheelchair from the elevator.
  21. After you enter the elevator, you’ll have to fight off another silhouette, just for good measure. Head back inside the elevator. After you use the controls and he complains about a key card, highlight the second floor and take it down.
  22. Turn right and head through the door. Walk around all of the junk and through the next door. Turn right and head through the door. Walk toward the projector (the front) on the right and pull out the slides. This will reveal the combination for the safe in the other room.
  23. Exit through the door, go right and head for the safe. From left to right, the combination is: IX-VI-I (or 9-6-1). Head inside and examine the hanging corpse for an ID card. Head through the open doorway for a trippy scene.
  24. Exit back through the vault door. Cross diagonally and head through the door to eventually get back to the elevator. Use the ID card, then select 18 to take you to the radio room.

Look man , for the codes is simple after you get there, are a paper a card. you pick up and the card says, some paragraph with colors you only need to apply those colors into the panel in the same order. I think the card you can find into a men dead before the panel.

Thanks to the different difficulty settings, there are actually two solutions to this puzzle. The easier solution is “2345″, but the tougher code is the similar “22345″.
