Getting a five star rank

When on a level that requires a crowbar to open a gate, just shoot the lock with a gun. You can now walk through the gate.
To finish off Piggsy, after you stab him three times go up the stairs and lure him onto the grate at the top level. The grate will bend the first time and he will run away. Lure him back upstairs and onto the grate for a second time and he will fall through. Make sure that you are also not on the grate or you will suffer a similar fate as Piggsy.
Early sawed-off shotgun in Born Again level
After you are let out of the execution room, you will soon find yourself in a basketball court where you have to defeat several gang members that are sent out after you. There is an opening in the fence around the court where you will see a posted sign reading "Vote Congressman Matthew R. Dione for Willington Mayor". Under the sign in the tall grass should be a sawed-off shotgun.
Bonus item in Mouth Of Madness level
In this level, you must kill the smiley hunter on the tower and bring his body to the guard room. Kill the hunter on the tower and make sure to cut off his head. However, do not bring his body to the guard room (just his head). An intermission sequence will show you entering the guard room with only the head. Starkweather will say "For bringing this head I will leave you a little gift in the next location". Look around for the unknown item.
When a victim is on the ground begging for his life and before you finish him off, hold R3 and start attacking. The camera angle will then show a partial close-up view through the eyes of the victim, with you swinging away.
In many instances a foe can lose his head in one of the death animations, such as baseball bat level 3 or wire level 3. If you smack a downed opponent in the head, their head will basically explode. If you have severed their head prior then go to smash it in, it will still explode as if the head were still attached to the body.
Hit a save point with a throwable head with you. If you die, it will become a head with a bag wrapped around it.
When you kill Starkweather and Cash puts the chainsaw through his head, Starkweather’s corpse falls over. Cash will then put the chainsaw in his stomach. However, sometimes he does not directly get it on his body and you should see the chainsaw floating in mid-air.
