Do not attack humans:
You will encounter your first human in Malchia's domain. He is a
vampire hunter garbed in silver armor, shoots silver stakes from
a bow, and will be hostile. Leave him alone and continue on to
fight the zombie-like vampire. Leave after killing it, and do not
go back to the human. The next human you encounter, located in
the gear room, should fall to his knees and hold out his arms. The
humans now consider you an avenging angel. Do not attack them, or
they will turn on you. Warning: Vampire Worshippers are garbed in
red and gold. They wield throwing knives and staffs and will
always attack. You may kill them as they are evil. Be sure to
check your human targets. You will now be able to peacefully roam
through the human stronghold.
Fun with humans:
For those of you who feel the need to unleash your wrath upon your
unsuspecting human friends, go ahead and kill them with glyphs.
The other humans will not acknowledge that you are responsible.
Try the force, stone, and fire glyphs. You can do fun things like
sailing a worshipping human against the wall, killing him, and
watching as he proceeds to slide into the water only to die
To defeat the Malchia, lure him under one of the two spike gates
and release them right when he is slithering under it. Repeat
this on the other side of the room. After that, lure him into the
center cage, quickly jump out, run to where Malchia started from,
and roll the lever. This will cause the large spikes on the
ceiling to come grinding down on top of him.
Pull the three stakes out of him to bring him back to life. Lure
him into the furnace room very slowly -- if you move too fast,
he will return to his room and you will have to begin again.
Turn on the gas and hit the switch after he is in the furnace
room to fry him.
Bring a torch with you to the fight with Zephon. Run up to his
belly, and swipe the torch at the hole for a bit of damage. He
will attack with his leg, and get it stuck in his belly. Strike
the leg. He will be heavily damaged. Strike the egg hole to
cause more damage. Any time he gets a leg stuck in the ground,
hit it with the torch, then hit his egg sack to quickly kill
him. This is easier than the "correct" method. After defeating
him, you will gain the ability to scale walls.
You must enter the chamber in the spectral realm. Go to the top
pillar where the portal is located and materialize. After a brief
exchange of words, your only task is to shoot out the windows
lining the room to let in the sunlight. Use the force blast-- you
do not need Soul Reaver, so do not worry about taking hits. After
he dies, you will acquire the swimming ability.
Defeating Kain (first time):
Simply wait for him to materialize and hit him. He will appear
behind you 90% of the time. You will acquire Soul Reaver after
he is defeated.
Defeating Kain (final time):
Wait for him to materialize and hit him. You need soul reaver to
do damage. The spirit forge in the center of the arena always
automatically fills your health. Simply run over to it to
accomplish this. When you strike him the first time, he appears
on the second tier, again usually behind you. Finally, when you
hit him on the second tier, he will materialize on the third and
highest tier, again usually behind you. Quickly hit him a third
time to defeat him.
The Last Lieutenant:
The Soul Reaver developers claimed that they did not have enough
time to implement every section of the game. Apparently Raziel's
last brother, Turel, was left out of the game.
Use of the Constrict ability:
First, you must have a circular area around the target. For
example: Assume that the target is a Dumahim vampire (the most
common in Nosgoth). Now, without using autoface, run a complete
circle around the vampire until Raziel is followed by a trace of
blue energy. This energy, once fully invoked, will "constrict"
the vampire, causing it to be momentarily stunned -- and allowing
ample time for you to finish the it off. The Constrict ability
has odd effects on humans. They are as follows:
1. Certain humans, once you begin the Constrict ability, will act
as though they plummeted into water. If you do not finish the
ability, they will "drown".
2. The human will get stunned when Constrict is half finished,
allowing you to stop and feed on their soul.
3. The most common and normal result is that the human will
The Constrict ability is required to complete the puzzle in the
Chrono-chamber. Also, make sure to return to areas of Nosgoth you
have already visited prior to gaining that ability. You will find
that Constrict can be used on many things, and may open up useful
secrets (such as Eldritch artifacts, Glyphs, and life force
pieces). Constrict does not work on Kain and will not work
