The Evil Within PC Cheats

General Tips
  • Try to be stealthy at all times. The Evil Within is not an easy game, and getting the jump on enemies helps a lot.
  • Stunned enemies can still be stealth killed, even from the front.
  • All enemies aren't blind, so don't rely on your lantern too much. They will spot the light.
  • Be on the lookout for keys. They allow you to unlock lockers in the morgue to receive extra items.
  • Disarm traps to receive trap parts, which allow you to craft new bolts for the Agony Crossbow.
  • Focus on headshots for the larger enemies.
  • If you upgrade your health, you will be fully healed.
  • Although disarming traps proves useful for trap parts, you can also use them to lure enemies and kill them.
  • Shoot weaker enemies in the legs and then burn them with your matches.
  • Save often. It's a simple but very important tip.
