|                              |  the ladder.  Press the other lever here and 
o------------------------------o  the path will once again be complete.  Jump 
                                  down to the first floor and head North.

You've got a problem here, who would have ever assumed this would happen?  
Start pounding the A button, as you run you'll need to first press L when 
prompted, then R then L+R.  When you reach the door forget the kicking method 
and take the Shotgun to the lock.  In the next area keep tapping A to run and 
get ready to press L+R in an instant.  When you do pound the A button as fast 
as you can to climb to safety.  Now enter the door and watch the scene.

On the boxes to your left is 'Handgun Ammo (20)' and hidden in a chest behind 
the junk Northwest of here is a chest containing 'Yellow Herb.'  Start 
climbing the stairs and suddenly barrels will be coming down after you.  
You'll need to shoot the first one as it descends, then make a left and walk 
out on to the wooden walkway.  Defeat the enemies and climb the ladder.  At 
the top of the ladder climb the stairs and make a left to find 'Green Herb.'  
Go back down and walk onto the central area near the ladder.  There's an 
'Incendiary Grenade' and '1100 Ptas' laying on the floor near here.  Examine 
the control panel but it won't let you go up because the lift is too heavy.  
Solve this by pushing those giant crates over the edge.

On your way up you'll be ambushed by tons and tons of red cultists.  Blast 
them using whatever means you have at your disposal.  I found that a good way 
to get rid of them to minimal ammo loss is  to use up some of the extra Flash 
Grenades.  Wait until a whole bunch of them are on the elevator then drop a 
Flash Grenade.  Now you can freely kick them over the edge of the elevator.  
They won't drop any items but it's certainly entertaining.  At the top 
navigate the path around the outside of the tower, breaking any barrels as you 
come to them.  Before going into the elevator at the end jump off the West 
side of the final circular platform to reach a chest containing 'Gold 
Bangle.'  Climb back up and quickly grab the 'Red Herb' down the path to the 
Northeast, then you can head South and ascend in the elevator.  At the end of 
the path you will find 'First Aid Spray,' 'Rifle Ammo (5),' 'Magnum Ammo 
(5),' 'TMP Ammo (50),' and a merchant as well as a save point.  If you're 
running low on ammo for any of your weapons, a good trick is to upgrade the 
ammo capacity which will give the gun a full clip.  Make any other upgrades 
you feel you need then save your game.  Proceed through the door for a scene.

o- Boss (Salazar) -----------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| The form you once knew Salazar in has taken a whole new shape.  Try not    |
| the be overwhelmed by this boss, it actually has a fairly simple and       |
| easy pattern to follow.  Basically here's how it works, the boss has two   |
| tentacles that will be constantly attacking you during the battle.  Ignore |
| the tentacles and focus on the central head.  The central head has a large |
| eye that you need to target, however it is constantly moving around so     |
| makes it a good target for the Shotgun which does not need to be too       |
| accurate.  Each of the tentacle's attacks can be dodged using the dodge    |
| buttons when prompted on the screen.  The head has one instant kill attack |
| which is rare, just be sure to run when it opens its large mouth and you   |
| can avoid it just fine.  As you shoot the eye you aren't actually hurting  |
| the boss, just trying to hit it enough to expose Salazar the real boss.    |
| Salazar is the small little grey man who appears on the central head when  |
| you damage the eye enough and it buries into the ground.  In this case     |
| pull out your most powerful gun and start attacking.  One Rocket Launcher  |
| blast will kill him instantly, but that's no fun so I recommend the        |
| power of the Broken Butterfly, followed by the Rifle as a backup.  After   |
| a couple of hits the boss will be covered again and you can restart the    |
| process.  If you happen to get caught by one of the tentacles you will be  |
| slammed down on the lower floor.  Down here there are a bunch of parasites |
| running around, who knows how many.  If you have any flash grenades left   |
| over throw them for an instant kill.  Now climb back up the ladders and    |
| continue the fight.  When it's over head to the left side of the upper     |
| area to find a 'Green Herb' and 'Handgun Ammo (20).'  Jump down to the     |
| lower level where you can find a total of eight barrels each containing    |
| great amount of ammo and healing items.  Go up the ladder where the boss   |
| once stood and grab the money to receive '50,000 Ptas.'                    |
|                                                                            |

With that boss out of the way proceed through the East door behind the money 
where Salazar used to be.  There's a couple of barrels to break on your left 
and a rope to climb down.  Watch out for the barrels at the bottom because on 
contains a snake.  Take the elevator down and follow the corridor to reach two 
barrels, a crate, a 'Flash Grenade,' 'Shotgun Shells (10),' 'Rifle Ammo (5)' 
and 'Handgun Ammo (15).'  Also a merchant and a save point reside in this 
area.  Upgrade your weapons and save at the typewriter.  Head through the 
South door and watch the scene for the end of the chapter, and the first disc.
