Having made it through the Historical Society, you will find yourself in the darker parts of the Toluca Prison. This step-by-step guide will show you how to get through this level in Silent Hill 2.
Landing and Initial Exploration
- Upon landing, watch the cutscene.
- Grab a ‘Health Drink’ from the table and one more lying nearby.
- On the shelf, don’t miss the tablet of ‘Gluttonous Pig.’
- Look for a save point on the support near you.
- Exit the cafeteria via a door next to a corpse.
- Take a turn North down the hallway.
- As you pass the first desk on your left, grab the ‘Handgun Bullets.’
- Make sure to pick up the ‘Map of Prison’ at the second desk.
- Head South and step inside the large shower room in the middle.
Exploring the Shower Room
- Start walking North and inspect the far-right shower for the ‘The Seductress’ tablet.
- Head South down the hallway, and enter the first hallway leading to the prison cells.
- In the first open cell, you’ll find ‘Handgun Bullets. Meanwhile, in the second cell, say hello to a ‘Wax Doll.’
- Bid goodbye to the cell block via East and turn North in the hallway.
- Scoop up the ‘Handgun Bullets’ off the desk on your left up ahead.
- Keep moving North and walk through the double doors on your left.
Additional Rounds and Gathering the Tablets
- Don’t miss the ‘Rifle Shells’ in this area.
- Exit and head North down the hall, enter the next door on your left leading to the Southern blocks of the North cell block.
- The tablet of ‘The Oppressor’ awaits in the 7th cell.
- Now that you’ve collected all three tablets, head back East and step into the vast outdoor area.
Outdoor Area and Resulting Reaction
- The platform in the center has three square indentations, perfect for our tablets. To access your inventory, use Gluttonous Pig, The Seductress, and The Oppressor. Speed things up by combining and using all three at once!
- Hear that scream? That’s your cue to head back into prison.
Further Traversal and Inventory Expansion
- Upon re-entry, you’ll automatically pick up the ‘Horseshoe’ on the door handle.
- Make your way through one of the cell blocks back to the West hallway.
- Here, you’ll see two doors at the North end. Take the lower door first for the ‘First-Aid Kit’, then reach the Western-most hallway through the upper door.
Final Gathering Before Diving
- Just a few steps down, you’ll find a room to the East. Pick up the lighter off the ledge.
- Head South and into the third room from where you were. Here’s another bathroom with a save point above one of the urinals.
- Leave and head for the room West of this one. You can add a ‘Health Drink,’ ‘First-Aid Kit’ and an ‘Ampoule’ by the sink to your inventory.
- Through the North door in this room, you’ll find a ‘Hunting Rifle’ in a glass case. Inspect it again for ‘Rifle Shells’ and beside it for additional ‘Rifle Shells’ and ‘Shotgun Shells.’
- Return to the hall, and head through the metal gate to the South. Check the panel on the floor to notice a lack of handle.
- Access your inventory once again and merge the following items: the Lighter, Wax Doll, and Horseshoe.
Time to Take the Plunge
- Once combined, inspect the hole and choose to jump down. Get ready for a short adventure until you reach the elevator.
- Inside the elevator, there are ‘Shotgun Shells,’ ‘Handgun Bullets,’ a first-aid Kit,’ and ‘Rifle Shells.’ Don’t worry; the elevator will start moving on its own.
- Finally, leave the elevator, save your progress, and head through the final door to find your way to the Labyrinth.
