Nice work man, I'll add this link to the guide.

Thanks for the great guide -- it's been very helpful.

I'm still having some difficulties getting the helmet, any chance you post a little bit more detail on that one as well?

You must have the weapon before you can upgrade it
I'd like to add that you can't get the upgrades to any given weapon until after you've actually collected the weapon. I'm playing through on Super Hard now and went straight to Area 5 first for the bazooka, then tried to get the grenade upgrade in Area 1 but the icon isn't there!

To unlock the revolver door in Area 00 with the Yachichi symbol by it, do you have to have all the Yachichi to open the door? The reason I'm asking is because mine wasn't open when I had checked after working midway through the game with a couple of Yachichi's.

If not, how do you open the door? Thanks.

BTHR Zero X 08-19-2008 05:32 PM

The Revolver door is the higher one of the two but the Door with the Yachichi symbol you need all Yachichi's

Doc Merk 08-19-2008 05:52 PM

Hey thanks for the timely response. I appreciate it. Happy killing on the best arcade game yet!
