How to Take an S-Rank Photo

To take an S-Rank Photo, you’re going to need to reach the right spot. Follow the steps and go to the location below for an easy S-Rank photo opportunity.

  • Go to Willamette Memorial Megaplex and reach Kiichiro Plaza.
    • Find Ja-POP! and take a picture of the store. That’ll earn you an instant S-Rank.

The Ja-POP! store is filled with Capcom tributes and Easter eggs. Every product and image sporting a Capcom tribute earns bonus points, and all the items in that store combined gives Frank an easy S-Rank. Right near the entrance, you’ll find a Blank mask, E. Honda standee, and there’s even a C. Viper poster outside on the wall.

If there are dead bodies inside, you’ll get the extra violence bonuses, but you won’t need many. Just keep taking shots and you will get the rank, just make sure you’ve got enough of the store in your viewfinder.
