I'm looking to 10-star SH2, but I have a few questions about the mechanics of the game; I figured this was the best place to ask.

1) Does the color of Hyper Spray you get in a new game correspond to your highest saved ranking, or is it always decided by the ranking of the previously completed game?

2) Does the use of Hyper Spray and the Chainsaw lower your ranking, the way the special weapons in SH3 do?

3) Is there a safe way to approach Lying Figures for a melee kill, or is it always best (aside from the very first one you encounter) to just shoot them dead?

4) Which is the best weapon to use when dealing with Eddie and trying to avoid damage (especially where Hard difficulty is concerned)?

5) Does the rowing scene take longer on Hard difficulty, or is having to use the toggles the only difference?

For Eddie, I have read that the shotgun is the best option due to the speediness of recovery after a shot compared to the rifle and the damage compared to the handgun. Melee is kind of tricky since he'll have a better opportunity to punch you compared to firearms.

Five: I believe the distance from the docks to the hotel and the max speed of the boat are the same across difficulties. So yes, the analog stick rowing is the only difference.

Sorry I could only answer those as I'm not sure about the first three questions. But good luck, getting ten stars would be quite the accomplishment :)

1. Honestly don't know >.>
2. Hyper spray i'm not sure .. but you can use chainsaw and still get 10 stars ( I have done it). idk that using hyper spray lowers your rating for using it, but it does lower your health when you use it... and you only can take 500 points or less. So I would avoid using it (do pick it up for the +8 items)
3. NO, never approach any enemy on hard mode... EVER!!!! Use any fire arm to take them down THEN kick them to finish them off before they get back up for it to count as a melee kill (you need 75 melee kills and 75 firearm kills)
4. Chainsaw. I'm not going to tell how to do this becuase anytime I try to help people call me a liar or say "It can't be done". So all I will say is you can do this part easy w/o taking any damage with the chainsaw.
5. No, its the same on any difficulty exept the controlls change. Make sure you have at least 1 save before (or close) to this part so you can practice if you don't know how to row with the sticks.

EDIT: Also If your having trouble you can turn bullet ajust to x3 ( it does not effect your end ranking)

1- I don't know though I'm more inclined to think it's about the ranking of the previously completed game.

2- Not sure. I think it does. But the Chainsaw, like sh#1fan said, doesn't.

3- Just shoot 'em and kick 'em. Best tactic regarding pretty much anything you encounter.

4- I always used the shotgun and hunting rifle. You could also try the great knife for the lulz.

5- Yep, like answered above, it's the same thing.

I believe the rifle does give you a bit of an advantage over the shotgun, as it can cancel Eddie's attack, when he's in the process of aiming. I don't think the shotgun does that.
