    Just yesterday I discovered that game prevents you from using holy water if you don't have any water arrows. You can use it all the time and it leaves only sound effect, but it's not being wasted. There is no holy water effect activated either. I grabbed 1 water arrow after using holy water in case I would have some infinite number of holy water. But no, game is too smart for that.

    I think I knew most of these pretty early on, but might be one or two.. I think I must have played the T1 Demo about 75 times before the game came out. I knew most of what everything did by the time the game hit the shelves.

    Just discovered the secret panel in Running Interference last night while I was getting Dromed to run on my laptop. I was taffing around in the room with all the goodies in it, near the beginning, and I just happened to accidentally click on that little switch below the table and my mouth dropped open. 20 years and I didn't know that panel opened up!!

    How about this one?

    If you rebind the default keybinds to make Run the default "move forward" instead of walk, you can actually get around much faster in a relatively silent mode. Even crouched, Garrett can move in this "Run" configuration at a little better than walking speed, and that's saying something in a huge game with long distances to traverse.

    Moving along on tile? or metal? and Garrett's clanking feet gotcha down? See above, then while crouching, press the move forward "W" key, but let it go after a short pause. Practice in an area with no guards around. Keep pressing W, and letting go, and W again, and letting go. You can soon learn the right press-pause-press-pause combination to move the fastest. You can almost get a decent walking speed going! Be Warned, however: there is a risk involved, and Garrett will occasionally do a little stutter-step and "clank" right when you least expect it.

    The trade-off is worth it in my opinion.
