It might have been released back in 2001, but that isn’t stopping players from exploring the darkest corners of Silent Hill 2. And it appears to have paid off: Twitter user punk7890 discovered a hidden mini-map in the game, as well as a “save anywhere” feature.

punk7890 posted about the finding on July 13 via a link to The Cutting Room Floor. Both features can only . be accessed after beating the non-canonical “Dog Ending,” which means that the likelihood of their discovery was pretty small.

Here are the instructions for activating each discovery from The Cutting Room Floor:

“Mini map:

A hidden mini map can be activated by a set of complex button combinations. First, you must have completed the Dog Ending. After you have completed the Dog Ending, make sure your controller type is set to 2 if you are playing on the international versions of the game. Finally, press the following buttons while you have control over your character: Start + L2 + Square + L3. You may need to first enter the inventory menu screen, exit, and while exiting hold Start button and then input the rest of the button sequence.

Save Anywhere:

This hidden feature has a more complex set of button combinations that need to be input to bring up the save menu anywhere. Have control over your character, and then press the following buttons: D-Pad Left + Left Analog Stick Left + Right Analog Stick Left + L2 + L1 + L3″


Interestingly, players have considered the possibility of a mini-map for at least 3 years, as evidenced by a 2015 thread on Silent Hill Community that revealed a mini-map that can be enabled by manual toggles within the game’s code.
