SH210StarRanking

A 10 Star Ranking results screen in Silent Hill 2.

The 10 Star Ranking is a feature in the first four Silent Hill games, with the exception of the Born from a Wish scenario. Earning a 10 Star Rank can be a difficult challenge, as there are many constraints and requirements involved.

Silent Hill

Earning a 10 Star Rank results in the best Hyper Blaster upgrade (green).

Requirements

  • Mode: Hard
  • Game clear: 5
  • Ending: Good+
  • Saves: 2
  • Continues: 1
  • Total time: Less than 1 hour, 30 minutes
  • Walking distance: Doesn't matter
  • Running distance: Doesn't matter
  • Items: At least 150 out of 204
  • Defeated enemy by fighting: 75+
  • Defeated enemy by shooting: 75+
  • Shooting style: At least 0.30 short range shots, at least 0.20 middle range shots, at least 0.10 long range shots, and less than 0.13 no aiming shots.

Tips

  • Increase "bullet adjust" in the "Extra Options" menu as high as possible. Bullet adjust can be increased up to 6x by unlocking new games.
  • Guns should only be readied when the player is certain they can hit the target.
  • Refrain from using the Hyper Blaster as it can decrease the score.
  • Have the majority or the entirety of the game memorized, and/or have a guide ready.
  • The first save should be just before facing Split Head, as it is very capable of quickly killing Harry. The second save should be just before fighting Incubus.

Silent Hill 2

Earning a 10 Star Rank results in the best Hyper Spray upgrade (green).

Requirements

  • Action Level: Hard
  • Riddle Level: Hard or Extra
  • Ending: Doesn't matter
  • Ending clear: 4/4 (+3)
  • Saves: 2
  • Total Time: Less than 3 hours
  • Walking distance: Doesn't matter
  • Running distance: Doesn't matter
  • Items: Over 150+ (+8)
  • Defeated Enemy By Shooting: 75+
  • Defeated Enemy By Fighting: 75+
  • Boat Stage Time: Under 1 minute, 20 seconds
  • Boat Max Speed: Doesn't matter
  • Total Damage: Less than 500

Tips

  • Increase "bullet adjust" in the "Extra Options" menu as high as possible.
  • Go for the Dog or UFO ending. Both of these endings allow the player to skip the final two boss fights, which in turn allows them to finish the game quicker and take less potential damage.
  • Have the majority or the entirety of the game memorized, and/or have a guide ready.
  • Avoid healing before the encounter with Pyramid Head on the hospital roof; this attack will never kill James Sunderland but will always put his health on critical. Healing before this just gives him more health to lose.
  • The first save should be just before the hospital corridor encounter with Pyramid Head, as Maria is sometimes killed here by accident. The second save should be just before the boss fight with Eddie Dombrowski, as this and the row boat section that follows can leave big impacts on James's health for the first, and confusion to the point of becoming totally lost during the latter.

Silent Hill 3

Earning a 10 Star Rank results in the password for the "Golden Rooster" costume. However, it isn't necessary to earn a 10 Star to receive it, and the player can simply enter the password for the costume if they know it. Other than this, 10 Stars will result in an upgraded Beam Saber and Flamethrower.

Requirements

  • Action Level: Hard or Extreme
  • Riddle Level: Hard
  • Clear time: Less than 3 hours
  • Split Worm kill time: Less than 2 minutes
  • Missionary kill time: Less than 2 minutes
  • Leonard Wolf kill time: Less than 3 minutes
  • Memory of Alessa kill time: Less than 3 minutes
  • God kill time: Less than 8 minutes
  • Clear number: 5
  • Save & continue number: 2 or less
  • Item number: 130+
  • Defeated enemy by shooting: 75+
  • Defeated enemy by fighting: 75+
  • Total damage: Less than 500

Tips

  • Do not use special weapons, as they decrease the score.
  • Increase "bullet adjust" in the "Extra Options" menu as high as possible.
  • Have the majority or the entirety of the game memorized, and/or have a guide ready.
  • The first save should be just before either the Missionary or Leonard boss fights, depending on the player's preference. The second save should be just before the Borley Haunted Mansion, as the red light can very swiftly kill Heather Mason.
  • Consider using the maul and exploiting God's blind spot in the battle against the final boss, as it is possible to defeat Her in less than two minutes this way with minimal risk to the player.
  • Consider using the Bulletproof Vest. It reduces damage received from enemies. Blocking at the right time also helps. However it is advised that the vest is unequipped while in the Borley Haunted Mansion as it will slow down Heather's running speed considerably during the red light sequence.

Silent Hill 4: The Room

Earning a 10 Star Rank results in unlocking One-Weapon Mode. Beating this mode with 10 Stars will then unlock All-Weapon Mode.

10.2 Stars

Requirements

  • Difficulty: Hard
  • Play time: Less than 2 hours
  • Saves: None
  • Continues: None
  • Enemies Defeated: Greater than or equal to 120
  • Memo Items Found: 52/52
  • Ending: Doesn't matter

Tips

  • Only return to Room 302 when absolutely necessary.
  • Have the majority or the entirety of the game memorized, and/or have a guide ready.
