Release Date: 2007
Developer: Climax Studios

Series: Silent Hill
Platforms: Playstation 2
Genre: Survival horror

Silent Hill: Origins, known as Silent Hill: Zero in Japan, is the fifth installment in the Silent Hill survival horror series. It is a prequel to the original Silent Hill game.

It was developed by Climax Studios and published by Konami. It debuted on PlayStation Portable in November 2007, with a port to the PlayStation 2 released in March 2008.

Set seven years prior to the events of Silent Hill, Origins expands the backstory on which the series built itself. Travis Grady, a trucker who suffers from visions that are somehow familiar to him, is running late for a delivery one night. He decides to make up for lost time by taking a detour. On the outskirts of Silent Hill, a cloaked figure darts into the road in front of him; Travis slams on the brakes and exits his truck to check on their condition. Outside his truck, Travis sees a brown-haired girl in a blue uniform, whom he chases into the mysterious town.

The following weapons appear in the 2007 video game Silent Hill: Origins:


Colt Woodsman Match Target

"A light target pistol. The kind of thing you see on a gun range. It stings more than it bites." -Inventory description

The Colt Woodsman Match Target appears as the "Target Pistol" and is capable of firing up to 6 .22 caliber bullets before needing to reload. It is the least powerful firearm, as indicated by its small .22 LR caliber, and even Travis himself hints at this in the inventory menu description.

Colt M1911A1

"A battered service pistol. This US Army surplus weapon is well used but still as smooth as ever." -Inventory description

The "Service Pistol" is a medium caliber US Army surplus gun. It is capable of firing up to eight 9mm bullets before needing to reload. It resembles a nickel-plated Colt M1911A1 with brown plastic grips but is apparently chambered for 9mm ammunition rather than .45 ACP, something the Colt MK IV Series 70 is sometimes seen with.

Smith & Wesson Model 629

"A heavy, reliable six shooter. Has 'Redeemer' etched on its side. A classic .44 hand cannon, this provides more than enough bang for my buck." -Inventory description

What appears to be a Smith & Wesson Model 629 with an 8-inch barrel is called the "Redeemer", capable of firing up to six .44 Magnum cartridges before needing to reload, as per most .44 Magnum revolvers, it's one of the few weapons with differences between versions, having engravings of a woman in the PS2 version.

12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun

"A wide-bore shotgun. This shotgun only takes two cartridges at a time, but at close range it's unstoppable." -Inventory description

The 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun simply appears as "Shotgun" in Silent Hill: Origins and differs from previous shotguns in the series in that it is double-barreled and break-action. The shotgun is deadly at close range and can down numerous enemies in one shot, but, compared to previous games in the series, it has the smallest capacity of any firearm, limited to just two shells.

Ithaca 37

Travis is seen holding a shotgun in the cutscene before the final boss fight, though it has a different model to the one used in-game, resembling a Ithaca 37 in riot gun configuration.

Winchester Model 70

"A sleek hunting rifle. This breech loader is slow to fire but powerful, with a long range." -Inventory description

Described as a breech loader, the "Hunting Rifle" shoots .38 caliber rounds and resembles the Winchester Model 70.

Norinco Type 84S/Type 56 Hybrid

"A fully automatic assault rifle. This knock-off of an iron curtain rifle has a large magazine that holds 18 bullets." -Inventory description

Dubbed "Assault Rifle" in-game, the weapon resembles a Norinco Type 84S due to its unusually long barrel, yet it is chambered for 7.62mm ammunition like a Norinco Type 56, and has an incorrect magazine capacity of 18 rounds (which the game describes as "large"), when it actually is depicted with a 30-round 7.62x39mm magazine of a Norinco Type 56.

The fact that Travis can acquire such a weapon is a blatant anachronism because civilian AK type rifles entered the US market after 1982, and Silent Hill: Origins is presumably set in 1976, although Travis reflects the rifle is indeed an imitation from the Communist bloc.

It is the only firearm with differently modelled ammo pickups between versions, the PSP original is a small civilian box of ammo like other firearms while the PS2 version changes it to a larger metal ammo box.

Norinco Type 84S "Target" Rifle - 5.56x45mm. Basically a standard Norinco Type 84S with a slightly longer barrel. This variant was ready for market just as the 1989 US import ban was implemented, so it is mostly seen in Canada. It has an 18.5" barrel and was very rarely seen in the US Gun market.

"Tesla Rifle"

"The mysterious Tesla Rifle, a weapon from another world. The Tesla Rifle harnesses the power of moonbeams to dispense unlimited electric death. Rumor has it the gun was developed using alien technology." -Inventory description.

The Tesla Rifle is an unlockable weapon, obtained only after the UFO Ending has been achieved. The weapon looks very futuristic and shoots unlimited electricity from its barrel instead of actual ammo. It serves a similar role to that of the Hyper Blaster from the first Silent Hill. It appears to be based on an M16A2 and an AR-15 Magpul MOE 6920.
