You awaken in Silent Hill and see Josh run across the street into the Grand Hotel. You are unable to follow because the door is boarded up.

On your map you will see an alley on the West side of the Grand Hotel. Heading that direction, you will fight another Smog. Continue to the alley and you will find a locked gate blocking your path. Use the Maintenance Key to open the gate. Continue walking through the gate to find a Health Drink on the left wall.

On the opposite wall there is a circuit box to examine, which will start the wiring puzzle. There are five different colored wires that you can manipulate in this order - yellow, white, purple, blue, and green. Move your thumbstick and then press X to select a wire. Now move that wire so it connects where you wish at the bottom of the panel. When you are happy with your placement, press X again. You can test if the wires are in the correct position by pressing the square button. The more wires you have correct, the more red lights will turn to green during the test. The solution is to attach the wires in this order - white, yellow, blue, purple, green. When the puzzle is solved, the lights will come back on in the Grand Hotel. Head back inside the Hotel.

Silent Hill Homecoming Walkthrough - Silent Hill-Homecoming 0088

As the elevator climbs, you will be attacked by a Needler, perhaps the most difficult enemy so far. I suggest shooting it with your Mk 23 Handgun to take care of it more easily. It will fall and jump back up on the elevator several times before you finish it off. When it is defeated the elevator will drop back down a bit and get stuck right below the 3rd floor.

A Needler will attack you as you enter the 5th Floor. These creatures are a bit more challenging than what you've encountered before. It's best to dodge their attack (L2 + O), and then counter-attack. Avoid hitting them head-on, they will block most of your damage. I found the pistol useful for doing damage from a distance, but the Needler will block many shots, so you may waste precious ammo as well.

Silent Hill Homecoming Walkthrough - Silent Hill-Homecoming 0114
