Silent Hill: Downpour Walkthrough

Table of Contents

Final Red Mist Chase

  1. Run down the stairs and through the corridor. Stay left at the part with the three doorways. After the slight turn, stay on the path, but watch out for the falling blade that you have to pass under.
  2. After you pass under another blade and do a 180, go left and follow the arrows. Go left and then left again. After you pass under another blade, the red mist will be getting dangerously close. Stay straight, then go left at the fork. Under two more blades, then go left down the long corridor.
  3. Once the hallway narrows, carefully navigate your way past the spikes. Once you reach the platform, press the button on the right to lower a lift. Hop on and pick up the shotgun shells.
  4. When the lift stops, pull out that shotgun and light up some fools. Once the lift drops down to the next level, pull out your flashlight again and use your shotgun to kill the three monsters.
  5. If you are facing the center tunnel, turn down toward the opening on your right (the other two will be closed off). Press the red button on the control board to regain power. Grab the First-Aid on the wall on the opposite side, then head back out onto the lift.
  6. The lift will stop yet again, and more enemies will come out for your shooting pleasure. Once they are all dead, the lift will break. Exit off to the left and turn left down the long catwalk.
  7. Go to the end, then hop up on the step on the left. Pick up the First-Aid kit on the floor, then head up the ladder. Make your way down and climb down the ladder on the other side. Head down the stairs and then another ladder.
  8. One final flight of stairs will take you down to the bottom level. Head through the doorway and then down the path. Sidestep the two falling cages. After the bridge collapses, alternate between RT and LT to climb back up.
  9. Head through the freaky-looking doors. Walk to the backside of the center contraption and turn the red valve. After the universe shifts, turn right through the doorway.
  10. Turn right down to the end of this room. Walk behind the pipes hanging downing and press the button to turn on the spotlights. You’ll notice that this will force the monsters below you in this mirror universe to retreat. Once the lights go off, hit the button again, then quickly run diagonally to the right and press the button here to lock the right monster in the cage.
  11. Repeat this process with the monster on the left side (there are separate controls on the left side to drop the left cage). Walk through the cages and turn the valve on the contraption at the other end of the room.
  12. After the universe flips again, walk back between the cages and press the button on the new device. Go flip the universe again, turn around, go right through the doorway and then head through the next open doorway.
  13. Stand on the emblem on the floor and wait for the two top blades to stop spinning. When they do, quickly run along the wall to the right. Stand on the emblem in this corner, then carefully run diagonally across to the other corner (yes, you will make it). Stand on this emblem, then take off along the wall to reach the next doorway.
  14. Turn left in the room with all of the trees. Turn the valve in the center to flip the universe, then head for the exit. Head down the long corridor and drop through the hole in the ground.
  15. Turn right and head up the stairs. Go forward and press A to use the spotlight. You’ll then have to guide the monsters into the caged area on the left. Since they hate the light, use the edge to lead them into the cage, then leave the spotlight in the middle of the opening of the cage.
  16. Turn right back down the catwalk, then go left through the door. Pull down on the lever to lock the cage doors and head through the next door. Head down the stairs, walk through the light and go pick up a crowbar that will located in the dark next to the blue box.
  17. Run down the path to the left of the stairs and break the padlock on the door. Head forward and climb up the ladder on the right. Turn right and head for the other spotlight. Hit it with your crowbar to turn it on and like before, herd the monsters (three of them this time) through the open gates on the left.
  18. This one will be trickier because the light will flicker on and off, but once you get all three inside, leave the light on at the cage doors, then quickly sprint down the catwalk, turn left into the building and pull on the lever to lock them in.
  19. Exit the room and head back down the same ladder. Go diagonally to the right through the open gate and turn the red crank to open the big doors. Squeeze through and head through the doors just up ahead.
  20. Head through the open gate, then go left and head through the open gate. Duck through the hole in the wall and exit the cell. Turn right and head up the stairs (yeah, more red mist!), then make a hard right down the catwalk and follow it all the way around.
  21. Break free from the monster from the cell, then after the next turn, head up the stairs to the right. Sprint down the catwalk to the right to the end, then turn up another flight of stairs. Go left through the falling blades and follow the catwalk all the way around to the other side, where it will drop you off to a lift on the left.
  22. Pick up the shotgun on the wall (keep the crowbar, too) and the First-Aid kit. Walk over into the next room. Walk up to the scale on the left and place the badge, shank and crime evidence on the scale to open the door.
  23. Head through the doors and down the catwalk. Go up the steps and turn right. Run past the controls on your left, turn right and wait for the platform to lower—when it does, hop on. Pick up the First-Aid and shotgun shells on the wall, then turn on the spotlight and shine it at that thing’s face (watch out for flying chairs).
  24. Take the lift back down, then walk over to the near by control screen is and mash A to pull out the red tube. Continue around to the right (watch out for his hand swipes) and head up the next platform. Repeat the process of shinning the light, then going down and unplugging the nearby red tube.
  25. Head back down the stairs you past to get to the outer catwalk ring. Turn left and follow it all the way around. Watch out for flying chairs and keep in mind that enemies will come out an attack you as you make your way around. (Tip: Make sure you look inside the cells you pass because some of them will have First-Aid kits for health.)
  26. Once you get to the bridge to cross back to the inner ring, move around the cage that falls, turn right and head up the platform. Just like before: light to face, unplug red tube. Run over and do the same for the fourth and final tube for a cutscene.
  27. After a bizarre cutscene, you’ll now be the Bogey Man and have to fight off those monsters as you chase down that chick. Eventually, she will shoot you down and you’ll be left to view to final scene of the game. (Note: There are multiple endings to this game.)

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″.
