Submitted By: Charlie Caroll



TO KILL TO FINAL BOSS:
In the final room with all of the computers climbup to the two raised areas
with glass windows. In one of them you will find a box containing an item that 
will kill the final boss - try ALL of the boxes untill you find the right
item



A GUIDE TO EFFICIENT KILLING TACTICS:
The Beauty of the head shot:  By far the most usefull tactic in the game,
the head shot is actually more easy the you may have orginally thought.
Either by design, or lack of imagination, every character in Syphon Filter
is exactly the same height. I feel that there are basically 2 types of
headshots.

 Of course the only way to perform a head shot is to press L1 ( or whatever
you've assigned the Manual Targeting button to ), but there are different
situations, and tactics for each.  Now the first, and probably most used is
what i call the "sniped" headshot. In this situation your target is either
above or below you, and usually some distance away.  Your weapon of choice?
 A sniper rilfe, or pistol perhaps.  The target may or may not know of your
postion and your free to take your time for the shot by skillfully ducking
behind any cover should you need it.

  The second is what i call for lack of a better term, "street sweeping" :)
.  Luckly, everytime you press L1 the aim defaults to "headshot height"  As
long as your on level ground, the only thing you'll have to worry about is
horizontal aim.  This comes in extreemly hand in situations where there are
multiple bad guys in a general area, and your out of gernades.  I prefer to
use an automatic weapon ( the PK-102 is a favorite because of the abuntant
ammo on most levels. ) and just spray in thier general direction of the
targets at head level.  Chances are that your gonna drop 2-3 people really
quickly.

Headshots ( for me ) tend to be most effective with an automatic. The 9mm,
and the .45 are also good, yet the lack of rapid fire makes them more of an
alternative to sniping than a good street sweeping tool.  The Shotguns are
nearly useless as headshot tools.  If your going to use a shotgun in the
Manual Target mode, ( picking people around corners most likely) make life
easier for yourself, and aim at the stomach / pelvic area: your less likly
to miss, and if you connect with any part of them (even a hand or elbow)
they're gonna drop. ( i would too if i got my arm or hand blown off )  :p 

NOTE:
An often overlooked tool for ( sniping )headshots is the tazer.  As i'm
sure you've notice that when an enemy is wearing a flack jacket you can't
zap him normally.  However the jacket, doesn't protect the head. ;) If your
not being pinned down by more than one person or feel that you can risk
being open for the duration of the zap, send a couple of volts his way.  If
the recipent isn't wearing a flack jacket, you can just lock on to him with
R1, but if he is go for the 1 count.



GETTING THE GRENADE LAUNCHER ON LEVEL 1:
In the First Level, When you first start, take a right and go through 
the doors to "The Place".  Go through the hallway until you run across 
the doorway that is blocked.  There will be a terrorist waiting for you 
behind the blocks in the room.  Drop him with your 9mm., but after you 
kill him, equip your tazer.  Shoot out the window to your right with the 
tazer, ( Don't waste rounds with any other weapons ), and climb through.  
Equip your M-16 after you do so.  Take a right and run over to the brown 
block ( The dumpster ).  Press the triangle button to climb up onto it.  
Walk to the opposite edge of the block, and press the triangle button, 
Gabe will jump up and grab onto the catwalk.  Press the up button on the 
D-pad of your controller to then proceed upwards.  Turn to your left and 
press the triangle button again to jump and grab the pipe.  
Now shimmy across the pipe but once equiped.  Press R1 to use the Auto-Aim, 
and let them fry in Hell.  Once you have reached the end of the pipe, 
press the down button on the D-pad, and Gabe will lower himself down.  
Walk forward and when you reach the box, press triangle, and you will 
receive the M-79 Grenade Launcher.  But be warned, It only comes 
with 5 rounds, so use them wisley... on bosses.

RESOLVING THE HOSTAGE SITUATION (1):
In the museum mission in order to stun Mara and keep 
Phagan alive, equip the Taser and then climb the 
dinasaur tail until you see the hostage situation, 
aim the Taser at Mara then fire not for too long as 
this will fry her!!

Submitted By:: Paul Pucci



RESOLVING THE HOSTAGE SITUATION (2):
Stay  in  the  hallway  till  you  see  Mara. Aproach  slowly
with  the  walk  button. Equip  the  sniper rifle, aim  in
first  person  view  mode. Aim  for  her gun. Then
after  that  situation  is  defused  climb  up  the  dino's
tail.

ONE SHOT KILLS:

Highlight the Silenced 9mm, press and hold 
Left, R2, Select, L1, Square, and X. You'll
here Gabe say, " Understood " to confirm

GETTING PROTECTION FROM THE SHOOTING MONKS:
Had enough of being blown to pieces while you're 
protecting the succulent Lian from the monks
Don't do it then. Instead, let her protect you. 

Once you find Lian, stay a way behind her and just walk. 
Whenever she starts shooting hide behind something 
and let Lian do the dirty work. This mean lady will 
shoot the monks dead (and then plugs their corpses 
with a few more slugs before the maggots set in). 
The best thing is monks won't shoot a lady, but will 
be more than glad to swap a few souvenirs with you, 
that's if they see you before they die. 

So who was it that said a woman can't do a man's job?

GOING 'UP' IN THE ROCKET ELEVATOR:
How to go up the elevator....
On the level where there is the rocket 
with the elevator going up the side to
get up the elevator you look up at the 
top of the elevator shaft and you will 
see a red flashing light with sparks 
flying out. Aim the sniper or 9 at the 
panel with the light on it and shoot. 
You must be on the elevator and shoot 
for it to work then the elevator will 
go up. Thanks, C DOG

TORTURE YOUR VICTIMS:
If you want to have some fun in level 11, whre you have 
to kill the scientists, make them kneel down.
Thay will start begging you not to shoot them so know 
get a weak weapon like the 9mm and shoot him in the leg. 
They wont die put thay will start suffering. They will 
die after a while. (I only tried on the scientist on the 
balcony little room.

MOVIE TIME:
To watch all videos on the game go to the first level,jump through
the window in the back of the bar.Go to the front of the movie place
door,press pause high-light map press and hold L1,R2,X,square,left,and
select. Gabe should say "got it",or "understood",unpause and you should
find yourself in the theater enter either door and watch....!



VIRUS SCANNER USES:
You can use the "Virus Scanner" (once
you get it) to look through walls to 
detect any guards standing "out of
sight"!!! Although this isn't what it
was meant for it can really help you
in the later stages where it's especially
dark and dangerous !!!! GOOD LUCK,GABE!

Submitted By:: CamaroWarrior



TASER GUIDE:
This is not really a cheat but for all the 
people that do not know this, here it is.
If you use the taser, do not push the fire button
(square) once. Hold the fire button but first,aim it 
to an opponent. Then wait for a few
seconds and your opponent will be on fire!
And one more thing. Taser is the coolest weapon!

BECOMING THE BAD GUY:
In the opening stage if a government drug enforcment agent is killed 
(yellow jumpsuit guys) go into the first person mode and shoot the body.  

Whenever a live agent comes back into the fight he will begin to shoot at you.

Waste Erickson
After interrogating Erickson in the wharehouse he will kneel down and put
his hands behind his head.  At this point he is no longer useful and you
can feel free to blast him using whatever weapon you like.(after all, if
you leave the room and come back, he'll be long gone.)

TENNIS COURT HOSTAGE SITUATION/ & RHOEMERS BASE:

Toward the end of the Washington park, you must difuse the hostage 
situation in the tennis court.  use your night vision sniper rifle 
and shoot out the lights to the courts.  This will allow you to get
a closer aim/look at your target without being seen. This tip also 
work's on Rhoemers base. Use your night vision rifle to shoot the 
moving spot lights that trigger alarms. Do this carefullyonly after 
guards are killed or no longer in sight.  Good Luck.

HOW TO BEAT ANTON GIRDEUX(REALLY REALLY FAST):

 Ok, I recommend using a special code(pause and highlight
weapons,then hold right,l2,r2,circle,square,x.)Choose the M-16
and press target. hold and watch for mr. girduex and his
flamethrower. then strafe right and left fast while firing
away. if he gets down, hide until he passes you. do not shoot until he
is near you! fire away at him fast and run like there is no tomorrow!
if he doesn't come down, keep him at bay by strafe between two pillar
near him. after he takes 6-8 hits in the tank, sit back and watch him
burn in vain. Nice cg movie, eh?

SUICIDE ATTEMPT THAT WILL NEVER WORK:

In the expo center recption level, get to the rocket room and go to
the elevator, shoot the switch, go down on the elevator. turn and
shoot the switch on the 2nd walkway.step into where the elevator drops
to, the shoot the switch near you. i won't want to spoil it, but if
you think i'm trying to kill logan, it won't happen the elevator will
bounce off of him. werid, eh?
