Death Abuse

With the PS2 port comes a handy new trick which is giving you all weapons, full ammo and full rations in your inventory and that mechanic is:

dying 5 times in a checkpoint!

So after entering the elevator we repeat the cycle five times to step right into the death barrel room again and hold left until we die. after the fifth time a ring soung will confirm the mechanic to be activated and you will have automatically full ammo for your weapons.

You will find you have also now 24 rations in your inventory again but placed behind the antidote in the inventory. If you still had rations in your inventory before doing the death abuse trick, your menus will change drastically and are not accounted for here in this wiki anymore.

Once you are done, leave the barrel room to the south again and continue Building 2 - First Floor - Second Visit
