Successfully complete the Last Challenge level. The doors in the back of the room will open up to the Remedy Room.

Secret tutorial room
Play the tutorial until you reach the end, where you can practice shooting enemies. Jump up on the big van located there, then over to the ventilation fan on the wall next to the van. From the fan, jump to the stairs and climb them to the top. Break through the window. You will find an Ingram in the room.

First nightmare
In the first nightmare that you enter from the girl that poisons you, you must weave through your house. Eventually you will end up in a black room with red lines all over that you must walk on. When you are in the hall that leads to the red walkable lines, run all the way down the hall. Keep running when you reach the red lines. The line will turn right; do not follow it. Instead, when you reach that corner jump off at a 45 degree angle to the left. You should be floating through the black, but will see a red line that turns like the one you previously jumped from. Try to land on the corner where the line turns. If done correctly, you can take the turn to your left and follow it to the end of the black room, and back into a hall that looks like the one you just left. Keep going and you should be able to finish the nightmare without having to find your way through the dark room with the red lines.

Baby maze
You will have to go through a maze where you have to find a baby. To get through this maze easily, just stick to right wall. You will end up in your house. After this, you will come to another maze that is not as difficult, but us easy to fall off of.

When you get to the blood trail in the dark, you can jump across to the end of the maze. Run to the end of the straight trail, and at the first turn, jump across. You can now see the second door. Jump across again and you will be there.

Second bloody maze
To get to the end of the second bloody maze easily, follow the trail until you see the first trail off the to the right far below. Jump down there and follow it right and you will see the candle platform in the distance to the right.

When you get into the maze that is made of a trail of blood, walk until the path turns to the right, then stop. Turn to your left and you should see another part of the trail in the distance. If you jump correctly, you should land on this part of the trail with no problem. Turn around so that you can see what was directly behind you. It should be another trail. Jump to it and you should be at the other door.

Painkillers
When you see a small box in some of the chapters, shoot it. Sometimes painkillers will be inside.

When you get a painkiller(s), do not use them immediately. Wait until someone starts shooting you. This will help save health.

Opening boxes
When you find boxes that are not very big or steel, swing your baseball bat or lead pipe at it. This will open those boxes easily without wasting bullets.

Disabling traps
When you enter a room with a tripwire trap, toss a grenade then exit the room. If you see a tripwire trap and do not have a door behind you, take out your sniper rifle and shoot it. Note: You can use any gun, but the sniper rifle/berreta is recommended as you do not normally use them very much.

Destroy elevator music
When you are in an elevator that is playing music, aim up and shoot the speaker above you to destroy it.

Shut up comment
Shoot two junkies (that sit down with their legs crossed in the white T-shirts) at the same time with dual Ingrams or dual Berettas. You will hear Max shout "Shut up!".

Followed by rats
On any level with rats, after you kill some enemies the rats will automatically follow everywhere you go.

Flamingo television program
In part 1, you enter an apartment where a guy is "doing his business". Jump out the window and you will see a television across from where you are standing. Get as close as you can and you will hear someone talking about an evil talking pink flamingo.

Avoid getting shot in hotel
In the hotel, there is a room with a shotgun on a chair. When you open the door, you will have about three seconds to move or else you will get shot.

Slow motion dive
Press (A) to shoot, then press (L) to do a slow motion dive.

Avoiding death by grenades
When someone throws a grenade, do a slow motion dive directly over it. If timed correctly, you will not die but still will take a lot of damage. This also works for the M-79 grenade launcher. Do not try this with a Molotov cocktail, as you will be set on fire.
