im glad to see that in 4 close combat weapons are the main stay weapons again because 3 in my opinion made you rely on fire arms a lot more but did any one use the guns in 4 much? i personly only used them on the last boss and nowhere else... not even 1 single shot until the final battle any one else do this?

I use firearms mostly for boss fights. That's really it.

Pretty much stuck with the axe and charge attacks.
I love the power of that tool of destruction and cleaving,
the good ol' rusty axe. :twisted:

the rusty axe is the best weapon in the series except for the great knife which is the most awesome weapon ever!

I only get one silver bullet per play through and always use it on Andew DeSalvo's ghost. Without the silver bullet, that fight is impossible. I had to restart the game my first time through because of it.

? on my second time around i didnt shoot him with the silver bullet cos that was too easy and beat ten tons of crap out of him then impaled him with sword of obedience... i never shot him, it was a little challanging but was by no means impossible... then again i was on normal not hard :?

I liked the up-close and personal weapons a lot more in SH4, I think that the Handgun would have been a lot better had the ammo stacked in your inventory rather than took up 1 place per 10 bullets, that just seemed like a perfect way to make the pistol useless, you can hold 1 whole pickaxe in 1 inventory slot, but 1 box of bullets takes up 1 slot too, erm wtf bbq?

M.

EDIT - I also beat the crap out of Desalvo each time, I use my Silver bullets on Cynthia and Jasper, it makes sense because Cynthia and Jasper show up at any given time (Building World 2nd time, woods, all over the trainstation etc) and Braintree and Desalvo only appear at places where you can just walk past them, so it's much simpler.

well :roll: the 4th time i played the game i used it on the wall creatures up the escalator(subway world 1st visit), 2nd visit was easier with the rusty axe :P .
edit: would have used it more often if the clips took just one inv space instead of one space per clip.

I lived off firearms in the first games. In the Room, the ax and the steel pipe were my best friend.

I just use the gun with with the locane children and dogs until I get the axe... This is my favorite SH weapon (that charged attack is great and anything can hurt you) after the hammer in SH1, THAT'S THE WEAPON!! SMASH THOSE NURSE'S LIMBS!!!

Only ever used the handgun to take out the wall creatures in the subway world first time to clear the route later when Henry comes back with Eileen. Used a silver bullet on a couple of playthroughs out of laziness to beat de Salvo (never had a problem beating him with the rusty axe), just takes a couple of minutes). I usually use the bar you get given at the start until the rusty axe turns up. The bar's got nice and quick attacks, but it pales in comparison to that charged rusty axe attack (looks so meaty and painful too, just like the overhead swing of the hammer in SH1).

I'm a firm supporter of melee weapons. I hate guns in Silent Hill games because I always feel I don't have enough ammo. Vote Katana for president. ^_^

Like Dustfungo, I do only use guns on bosses though. ... or if I unlock the infinite submachine gun.

throughout the whole game I never used firearms. I like to stick with the rusty axe and the metal pipe

I didnt use any firearms. I dont actually kill anything the whole way though. The single boss fight in the game I used one of the melee weapons same with the end boss. The dogs are a little harder to juke this time around so it was more to run past everybody. The first time I played silent hill 1 i missed the shotgun in both places and i managed to miss the rifle. Spent the whole game with the hammer, It's been my favorite weapon ever since.
