While playing Silent Hill: The Short Message, the last thing players expect is a boss fight, but they pop up with more ferocity each time the player hits one. Chapter 3’s is particularly nasty, with a puzzle to be solved while running from the antagonist.
During Chapter 3 of Silent Hill: The Short Message, players will hit the toughest boss fight yet. Unlike the previous encounters, players can’t simply escape the boss. Instead, they must unlock a door, and that requires them to relive protagonist Anita’s memories by gathering pictures scattered around the hellscape of the otherworld version of the Villa. It’s an awful battle that drove us crazy while we were figuring it out, and we believe most others will struggle with it too.
All Pictures for the Chapter 3 Boss Fight in Silent Hill: The Short Message
In the table below, we’ve outlined what all the pictures players must gather during the Chapter 3 boss fight in Silent Hill: The Short Message are. These are highlighted with white light in the corridors players will run through.
Players must gather all four of these at speed because the boss will be chasing them the entire time. The route is tricky to work out, but as long as players kite the boss around the corridors, they’ll be able to return to any area to get a picture.
Every time a player gets a picture, they’ll see the exit door close a chain in an image on Anita’s phone. Once all of the chains are gone, they need to run to that door. It’s located at the end of the corridor they first enter for this boss fight. The one where the boss rushes at them from the end of.
The hardest picture to find is the one in the locker. This one is in a room that’s difficult to get to because of the way the boss moves and tracks the player. However, if players remain calm and look for where the boss is, they can move around and get to the doors she comes through so they can find the door that leads to the locker room.
Unlike the locker code puzzle in Silent Hill: The Short Message, which could be different for everyone, this puzzle is the same for all players. Every picture is in the locations we’ve outlined. The hard part is getting them while the boss is rushing around trying to kill Anita.
