Silent Hill 3 Forum  /  Alessa / Missionary?

Just a couple questions about these boss fights:

Is the quick kill on Missionary totally random? I spent a good 30 minutes yesterday doing this boss over and over again with exactly the same shots at the same distance and just couldn't figure out what causes the quick kill.

After getting trolled by his A.I enough times though, and not being able to get close enough to him in time with the Shotgun a few times... I noticed if you leave your Handgun (Heather seems to go into full sprint quicker with the Handgun equipped as opposed to the Shotgun) on initially, run to him and then menu to equip the Shotty / Ampoule you can pretty much be pointblank on him far before he even starts running around. Even doing this though, and having point blanks shots right into his back... I still wasn't able to get consistent fast kills.

About Alessa:

I've been messing around with this fight too, and just couldn't find consistency with it, similar to the Missionary fight.

I tried literally replicating the method seen in Shunpuk's video and it worked, except a large amount of the time Alessa would run away immediately which would screw up the entire fight in a run. I could run it until this fight went perfect and she didn't run away... but I rather wouldn't from going insane... lol

So I thought I would try the slightly slower method that has a larger chance of her not running away, however I couldn't seem to get her to drop in 2 shots at all consistently -- even when turning slightly to the left like when doing the method above. Does her health vary or is it entirely fixed in this fight and I'm just doing something wrong? If her HP is fixed then that's fine and I'll just practice it more but looking at Split Worm / Missionary / Leonard that seem to have random HP pools... is it the same for Alessa? Bad luck, or am I just doing the strat wrong?

Want to at least give an attempt to get sub 38, but I feel the Alessa fight is going to be in the way for a large part of that -- since my fights usually end within 56-1:00.

I'm fairly certain the missionary quick kill isn't random, I used to think so but now I get it like, 90% of the time. If you see in this video here:
You have to try and wedge yourself very close to his side/back, animation cancel shoot, and then make sure you dont let go of aim, walk up until she aims downwards, then fire. The RNG for me is where he will decide to move at the start of the fight. Can't say this will work for everyone but it's what I do right now.

From what I can see in your PB vid, you're not close enough to Alessa. You have to walk up to her so much that you're touching her really, then animation cancel shoot, then shoot slightly to the left (don't let go of the aim button, for me it works if I just hold left before the next shot is even ready, then tap fire as opposed to holding it). If you're using the easier method for the first phase, you definitely don't want to aim left, I'm not sure why you aren't getting two shots with this method but it's largely based on positioning.

Speaking of not letting go of the aim button, make sure to do this on the last phase of the fight too, after you shoot her to the ground do not let go of aim, then walk over to her and Heather should automatically aim down, then you can shoot. Doing so usually results in the quicker last phase for me.
