Recommendations

This speed walkthrough is intended for players who have beaten the game at least once (as a quick reference to speed up their times), or for players who wish for only the bare minimum of instructions to make their way through the game.

Boss strategies will be very simplified, enemies will hardly be mentioned, and you'll be expected to supply yourself with ammo and health as it will not be covered here. Do your best to just run past enemies if going for speed, turning your flashlight off to be more discreet. Also consider using bullet adjust if you've unlocked it to multiply the amount of ammo in each pickup.

While most maps can be avoided if going for speed, I'll still list them as optional pickups since they can help you in a pinch. Extra items and weapons will also be mentioned as optional pickups, while they add to a better ranking if acquired. Note that save points will not be listed so it's up to you to find one if needed. Refer to the Save Point Locations section for quick reference.

If playing a Next Fear run, unlocked after your first completion, the initial arrival section will be skipped and you'll start in the cafe, reducing your play time.

Note: Silent Hill has a unique timer that does not ever stop until the final boss is defeated. That includes during cutscenes, when in your inventory and even when the game is paused with the Start button. Therefore if going for speed, you'll want to skip all cutscenes and minimize these other moments, perhaps saving your game and exiting if you need to take a break.

Congratulations on completing your speed run through the game. A time under 2 hours should be easily achievable on your first attempt, while under an hour is very achievable once you have a good understanding of the game. Feel free to keep practicing and do consider going for a 10-star ranking, also very much a speed run, with help from the 10-Star Ranking Guide .
