These are the Secrets and Unlockables in Silent Hill: Homecoming.


Secrets

MissingPicture
Alex makes a keen observation.
  • Examining a missing photo will result in a reference to a famous message in Neely's Bar.
  • Some of the books in the Shepherd House seem to have odd titles, although they are extremely blurry and difficult to read. They appear to include "A Book Title", "An Interesting Book Title", "The Collective", "Harry Got His Gun", "Life is a Bore", "Rocket Science for Dummies" and "Anal Sex for Dummies".

Achievement references

Several of the Achievements unlocked through the course of play reference previous Silent Hill games.

  • Eddie's Legacy: This achievement is obtained upon killing a Feral for the first time This is a reference to Eddie Dombrowski's murder of a dog while angry.
  • Shades of James: This achievement is obtained upon killing a Siam for the first time. This is a reference to James Sunderland's behavior towards his wife.
  • Kaufmann's Handiwork: This achievement is obtained upon obtaining a Serum for the first time. It is a reference to Dr. Kaufmann of Silent Hill 1.
  • The Old Gods haven't left this place...: This achievement is gained upon beating the game on Hard mode. During one of the endings of Silent Hill 2, James Sunderland mentions that the old gods of Silent Hill are still around, and are willing to grant power to those who venerate them.
  • In Water: This achievement is gained for obtaining one of the endings available in Homecoming. It shares its name with an ending from Silent Hill 2.
  • Angela's Choice: This achievement is gained if the player chooses not to forgive Adam Shepherd when the opportunity presents itself. It references Angela Orosco's murder, hence lack of forgiveness, of her father.
  • No Dogs Allowed: This achievement is gained by getting the UFO ending. It references the Dog Ending from Silent Hill 2.

Bonus Scene

This extra cinematic scene can be obtained one of two ways: The player can either beat the game on HARD, or collect every photograph in a single playthrough. If these tasks are met, then after the credits roll, Alex will, from a first-person perspective, climb the stairs leading to his room in the Shepherd House. Joshua will be seated on the bed, holding a camera. He begins to laugh, and takes a picture of his brother.

Costumes

With each new ending obtained, one of five costumes will be unlocked, depending on the ending achieved. There are, however, six costumes in all. A special costume can be obtained by inputting the Konami Code, a cheat code that appears in games developed and/or published by Konami.

  • Big Rig Alex: Clothing similar to that worn by Travis Grady. This costume can be unlocked once you beat the game with the "Good" ending.
  • Order Soldier Alex: The same mining uniform that Alex dons at the end of Church of the Holy Way. This costume can be unlocked after you beat the game with the "Drowning" ending.
  • Bogeyman Alex: This costume can be unlocked after you beat the game with the "Bogeyman" ending.
  • ER Alex: This costume is unlockable after you pass the game with the "Hospital" ending.
  • Deputy Alex: This costume can be unlocked once you beat the game with the "UFO" ending
  • Young Alex: This is the costume unlocked via the Konami Code.
