When starting out on Mission 12, you will notice a bunch of staircase platforms. Then wraiths will swarm at you from every corner. Slay all the wraiths and make your way to the middle stair platform to the barred door to your left. Charge up the Alternate Lightning Gun and juice the power stone in the wall. Walk inside and recover the Alternate Gatling Gun. If you don't have the Rifle, this will do for BIG DAMAGE.
When escaping Castle Frankenstein on level 8, you will pass through familiar rooms. When you get to the room where you first encountered pygmy bats, jump through the hole in the wall in which you came through to get up there. As you jump down, you will notice a pool of spilled goo off to the side from one of the containers. If you look closely, a glowing lightning gun will be lying in it. Add it to your growing collection of superb weaponry.
When battling Dracula for the first time in Castle Frankenstein, a bunch of lab equipment will be near Velken off to the side.Look for a batch of green ooz, jump in and click the action button until you find it. You may only keep it if you get it before killing Dracula otherwise you must go back for it.
Find the large gear room in the Castle Frankenstein's basement. Stand on the wooden platform on the right side of the room, then use the grappling hook to reach it. Alternately jump on the stallions while fighting Demon Verona on the stagecoach. Get knocked off the stallions by of the brides. An intermission that shows Van Helsing getting dragged under the coach will appear. Repeatedly tap Circle while under the coach to collect the cheat icon. Alternately, first complete the game and get the Gatlin Gun upgrade. When you get into the gear room, instead of going into the door, power it up and go to the other side. Use your grappling hook and it will take you to a stone door. Use your Gatlin Gun upgrade to start a intermission sequence and it will be Armory Anytime.

When fighting Dracula at the end of the game, wait to attack him until you turn into a werewolf. Otherwise, he will be invincible. After awhile of using Tojo Blades, you will hear a scream and you will become a werewolf. Later, you will temporarily be Van Helsing. Also, your background will be bluish when you are a werewolf and normal when you are not. Note: Dracula remains normal until attacked; you will be okay until you turn werewolf.
When a Boss or other strong enemy grabs you, keep pressing L1 (Shoot) to take away great amounts of life away from them.
When you get to the part where you have to fight the three Vampires, take out the one on the left first. When the center Vampire is going to attack, she will make a screeching type of sound. When she does that, get ready to dodge her attack. When she uses her lightning attack, hide behind the pillar. When you take out the Vampire on the left, the center Vampire will transform. The transformed Vampire will land on the ground and remains still. Back away and do not get hit when she dives after you. If you follow this and attack at the correct times, you should be able to defeat them.
