Supplies

Health Drink

Availability: Very Common (5/5)
Health Restored: 25%
Description: It's full of nutrition and should help me recover at least a little of my strength.
Notes: Health Drinks are very common and they can actually increase your health by a pretty good amount. Don't go wasting them though, because you might really need them at certain areas. If you get hit once or twice by an enemy, don't use a Health Drink (unless your health is bad). However, if your status screen in the in-game menu is yellow, it's a good time to use a Health Drink. If any worse, use two or more, or another health item.

First Aid Kit

Availability: Usual (3/5)
Health Restored: 50%
Description: This will help me patch up my wounds fairly well, I think.
Notes: First-Aid Kits are excellent for greater wounds than that of the Health Drink's ability, but you might not have too many. Never waste First-Aid Kits because you'll probably need a lot of them. When your health is at its worst, it will only take two First-Aid Kits to fully restore your health. However, if you have many Ampoules (two is many), use one at your worst health and it will be fully restored.

Ampoule

Availability: Scarce (1/5)
Health Restored: 100%
Description: This is the stuff! It'll wipe out all the pain and help recover my strength.
Notes: These are very rare and powerful. Ampoules will bring your health back up to its best and will keep your stamina at the maximum for a few minutes. You might not know when you need them -- be sure you do. Don't go wasting them with yellow health or better. You should ONLY use Ampoules when your health is red or if it's bad and you need good stamina. Anything better, use a First-Aid Kit and/or Health Drinks. Use one of these babies and your health will be at its best, no matter how bad your health is.

Handgun Bullets

Availability: Often (4/5)
Power: Okay (3/5)
Description: Bullets for a handgun.
Notes: Handgun Bullets are found in many places in Silent Hill 3. In fact, when you're low on ammo, there will be extra ammo for you in certain places. But that doesn't mean go and waste all your ammo. Conserve your ammo and use it wisely. You'll probably use the Handgun the most out of all your weapons, and you should find many Handgun Bullets so you can keep using the gun. They are strong enough for the speed you're able to shoot them at, so you should be happy about that. To reload, either go on the Handgun or Handgun Bullets in the menu, or equip the Handgun and Handgun Bullets and press R3 in the game.

Shotgun Shells

Availability: Usual (3/5)
Power: Great (5/5)
Description: Ammunition for a shotgun.
Notes: Not too easy to find but very useful when you do. Use wisely and save for bosses. The Shotgun has very wide range, so it's great on multiple enemies. For normal-sized enemies, use the Handgun, but for large enemies, use the Shotgun. To reload, either go on the Shotgun or the Shotgun Shells in the menu, or equip the Shotgun and Shotgun Shells and press R3 in the game.

Sub Machine Gun Bullets

Availability: Scarce (1/5)
Power: Okay (3/5)
Description: Ammunition for a submachine gun.
Notes: Very rare but not needed. The power of one bullet isn't powerful but the continuous firing is great. You collect Submachine Gun Bullets in magazines (a clip for bullets, not reading material). When using the gun, you'll have to reload pretty fast because of how fast the ammo goes by. To reload, either go on the Submachine Gun or the Submachine Gun Bullets in the menu, or equip the Submachine Gun and Submachine Gun Bullets and press R3 in the game.

Stun Gun Battery

Availability: Rare (2/5)
Power: Good (4/5)
Description: A battery for a stun gun.
Notes: Not many in the game but they can be useful, especially when you've run out of ammo for your firearms. You have to use the Stun Gun at close range though, so it may be tough to use on certain enemies. Each battery comes with 4 charges. Just like firearms, you will have to reload the Stun Gun. Either go on the Stun Gun or the Stun Gun Batteries in the menu, or equip the Stun Gun and Stun Gun Batteries and press R3 in the game.

Beef Jerky

Availability: Rare (2/5)
Usage: Unoften (2/5)
Description: Processed, dried meat. Sometimes it's just enough to distract monsters.
Notes: Beef Jerky is really useful -- you can use it to help you get passed certain enemies or just to have fun. If you place a strip on the floor, certain enemies may come up to it and start chomping on it, just like they do with the meat bags. It doesn't always work though, so don't always count on it all the time. It's pretty good to place some Beef Jerky on the ground when there are 2-4 enemies that are attracted to meat in the area. Beef Jerky comes in packs of four and you should find a pack every once in a while.
