Silent Hill: Downpour Walkthrough

Table of Contents

Return of the Red Mist

  1. Head forward and enter through the door on the left for a cutscene. Following that, head out the nearby door. Turn right down the hall and turn left through the next door. Go right into the next room and pick up the diluent on the table.
  2. Pick up the First-Aid on the wall as you exit the room, then use the diluent and douse the pile of clothes in the corner. Then pull out your lighter to set it on fire. Once the fire alarm goes off, go stand near the fire exit.
  3. The return of the red mist! Pull down the cage on the left, then quickly turn the red valve to open the doors. Stay straight up the slope, then make the left. After your drop down, turn right, then make a quick left.
  4. After you go down the two slopes, turn left past the blue car and up a couple slopes. When you see a blue van in the wall, turn right. Go straight up and then down the slope, knocking down the cages along the way.
  5. When you get to what looks like a dead end, turn left through the camouflaged doors. Make a quick left after knocking down a cage and follow the path around and up the slope. Turn right, go right through the mist, then go left at the dead end.
  6. You’ll then be facing a mirror and in the mirror you’ll see a red lever on the wall that actually won’t be on the wall! However, walk over to the “Manual Override sign and press A to turn the imaginary valve.
  7. Head straight through the open door. More red mist! Head through the door that opens and turn the valve at the dead end to open another door. Follow the corridor all the way around. When you get to the area with all of the bars, head through the doorway in the far left corner.
  8. Dodge the falling car (?), go right. After the vent falls, turn left, then turn right past another falling car. Follow the corridor around to the left. This will take you all the way to a dead end with a lever—pull on it and head through the doors.
  9. Head through the next two doorways. Whoa! After you end up on the ceiling, stand over the desk, press A to open the door and head through it. Go forward toward the green light and through the open gate. Head around and into the lift that will automatically take you down.
  10. After the cage drops you off, turn right and head through the doorway. Not again! Head forward and sidestep the falling cages. After you reach the Exit sign and fall through the hole in the ground, head forward and grab the First-Aid kit on the wall.
  11. Go left and move past those demonic things spitting red mist. Turn right at the end and pull the lever on the wall to open the big doors. Carefully walk around the falling cages as you proceed forward—you’ll also have to kill a couple shrieker chicks.
  12. When you get to the doorway, turn the gold frame on the wall on the left. Head down the stairs, through the doorway and into a rather bizarre room. Here, use the controls on the left and time it before you press A right before the spinning clock hand passes in front of you.
  13. Once you finally get it close enough to you to cross, do so toward the middle. As you step onto the next hand, it will start to spin. Carefully walk across. Once you get to the end, it should stop and you can walk through the doorway it drops you off at.
  14. Head down the long corridor. Stay to the right, where you will have to deftly walk through some spinning blades. (Note: on the last one, you have to wait for it to stop—it moves too fast otherwise.)
  15. Head up the stairs, cross the bridge and stand on the emblem in front of the two huge blades. Once the emblem lights up, go through the blades, which will slow down for you. Head up the bridge and then up the stairs. After they collapse, you’ll have to sidestep a few obstacles before a cutscene.

Can’t wait for you to add info for the side quests.

I should make my own!! even the best of the best players who are known for their walk throughs have posted CRAP with half the game missing :-/ Oh well.. ..

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″.
