in Disc 2. The correct drawer sequence is red, green, blue, and
bottom. You can also unlock Steve Burnside by performing well
in battle mode as Chris.
Steve Burnside cross-fire with sub machine
While playing in battle mode, kill all but one zombie
in any room. While equipped with sub machine guns, walk up to
the zombie and press X, and Steve will cross his sub machine
guns. For best results, play in third person so you can see the
cross-fire. If there is more than one zombie, Steve might aim
at two zombies rather than cross-firing at one.

a knife and has two mixed herbs.
Hint: Self-destruct code:
Enter "Veronica" as a code when playing as
Chris on Disc 2 when you have to open all doors and elevators
to save Claire with 5:00 minutes to evacuate.
Hint: Find a magnum for Wesker:
Locate the casino room where everyone got a first aid
from the slot machine. Wesker will hit it and the bottom will
open and reveal a magnum instead of a first aid spray. Note: Although
it only has six shots, it will only take five to kill Alexia type
Hint: Hidden item crate on airplane:
There is an item crate in the cockpit of the airplane,
beside and to the right of the cargo bay door. This makes it easier
to prepare before entering the cargo bay.
Hint: Extra First Aid Spray:
When the model of the training facility uncovers the
secret passageway, go to the cabinet. Use the lock pick to open
it and get a First Aid Spray.
Hint: Extra Ink Ribbons:
While in the Private Residence, before go on the stairs
is a room to the left. There is a Bandersnatch inside. There is
also BOW gun ammunition on the mantle and handgun bullets near
the door. Go to the door of that room then go all the way around
it to find some Ink Ribbons.
Hint: Grenade launcher:
Before you go up to the Residential House on the Hill,
take the ladder in the area outside in the "Training Facility"
where Alfred ambushed you with the sniper rifle. It will lead
you back to where you played as Steve. You can get a grenade launcher
and ammo, but you need the Blue Card Key.
Hint: Extra BOW gun ammunition:
Behind were you obtained the grenade launcher is a
door. Equip your grenade launcher before going in, as there are
two Bandersnatchs. Also in here are some BOW gun arrows, near
where you killed the first one.
Hint: Extra Acid rounds:
In the room were you get the grenade launcher, near
the rack is a door. This is the room where Chris enhances his
pistol. Inside a cabinet are some Acid rounds. You need the lock
pick to open it.
Hint: Extra handgun bullets:
In the Military Training Facility, go to the copy room.
Near the back door where the sink is located is a drawer locked
by a simple lock. Use the lock pick to open it. Inside is a box
of handgun bullets.
Hint: Saving ammunition:
Use the combat knife to save ammunition. To kill a
zombie easily, point at its head. Swipe at the right place and
time and the monster will go down. Then quickly swipe down to
finish it off. This works well with Wesker in battle mode.
Instead of swiping at their heads with the combat knife, aim for
their legs when they are walking. This will cause their knees
to buckle and they will drop. Keep swiping a few more times to
kill thm. This works best just when they are getting up because
it causes multiple hits in one swipe. If you aim down at just
about anything else, it will be very effective and will kill it
in less than ten hits. This is not recommended for Bosses (Nostafu,
Alexia, Spider, etc.)
Hint: Defeating the first stage of Alexia:
When Alexia is in her transformation and going to kill
Claire with one hit, shoot an arrow to save ammunition for the
Hint: Defeating the second stage of Alexia:
Walk right up to her and shoot six normal grenade rounds
directly at her face. She will change to her third form.
Hint: Defeating Queen Ant Alexia:
Have a little load of Herbs in your inventory. Equip
your BOW-gun with about twenty explosive darts then enter the
detonation code, "VERONICA". When this is done, run
back through the door and get ready for the battle. Quickly shoot
the morphed Alexia before she pushes Claire over the edge. When
this is done, fire all of your BOW-gun arrows toward Alexia. She
will die after about ten to fifteen hits. After the intermission
sequence, get the Linear Launcher and blast Alexia to bits.
To defeat the large form of the Alexia Queen easier, have Chris
use the SMGs you find on Rockford when you start as him and the
grenade launcher. Make sure you have all the ammunition you can
possibly have with the G-launcher and all the rest of your possible
slots filled with heavy healing items. Start the battle by moving
to the corner directly next to the door you came out of, so that
her tentacle attacks cannot hit you as easily. Use the flame rounds
against her. When she starts spitting out the little bug monsters,
use the SMGs to kill them off, as they are more accurate than
the grenade launcher. Whatever you do, do not ignore them. Although
they are not very strong individually, they will swarm and kill
you very quickly if you leave them alone. In any case, keep plugging
grenades and bullets into her and her little minions until she
dies and assumes her flying form. You can either continue to use
the SMGs to hit her or use the Linear Launcher to get her special
Hint: Defeating Bandersnatches:
The first real Boss is a Bandersnatch that Alfred Ashford
sets out for you. The best way to defeat it is to run to the stairs
and climb down. It will jump to the lower level to get at you.
Shoot it five times with the Bow gun using ordinary arrows. Climb
back up the stairs and the Bandersnatch will use his arm to hoist
himself back up to where he started and you can shoot him again.
As long as you keep running up and down the stairs he will never
get near you -- when he jumps to another level he starts back
at the farthest distance away from you. Use the Bowgun because
you can get hundreds of arrows during the game, conserving your
more powerful weapons (such as the MP-100s and MRI-19) for more
dangerous enemies. Although this is the only Bandersnatch in the
game that you have to kill, it is the easiest.
When ever you encounter a Bandersnatch (the monsters with one
arm missing and one rubber-like arm), have your combat knife equipped.
Run towards the Bandersnatch and avoid its punches. When you are
directly in front of it, start knifing it upwards and downwards.
If done correctly, you can take the Bandersnatch down by knifing
it two or three times.
Hint: Defeating Cerberuses:
These are the zombie-like dogs. Shoot one until it
hits the ground, then quickly run towards it, aim downwards, and
shoot. The Cerberus will not be able to get back on its feet and
will die easily. Note, that this can be a bit difficult when encountering
Hint: Defeating Hunters:
Note: This applies to both normal and poison varieties.
Shoot one with the shotgun to knock the Hunter off its feet then
run towards it and give it one more good shot. This is more effective
when the monsters lie on the ground, as the shotgun will spread
Hint: Defeating Moths:
They are easy to kill with a few shots from the handgun
or they can be killed instantly with one blast from the shotgun.
Note: This is a waste of time, as the moths keep returning.
Hint: Defeating Spiders and Ants:
Just stomp on them and they will die.
Hint: Defeating Tyrant:
Use the following trick to easily defeat the Tyrant
without the need if a healing item, Save the Flame, Acid, Normal
and Bow Gas rounds you get at the prison and MTR facility, and
use them on him. Once you have used them all, the Tyrant with
walk slowly and will not be able to push the crate back.
To easily defeat the Tyrant in the facility, use the BOW gas rounds
against him until he kneels on the ground. After that, use either
the acid or flame rounds to finish him off. To defeat him in the
plane, save as many of the explosive crossbow bolts as you can
and have Claire keep the BOW gun and the grenade launcher with
plenty of ammunition in her inventory. Start the battle by unloading
as many crossbow shots as you can. Keep using them until you run
out. If he is not limping by that time, then use the grenades
(acid or flame rounds recommended, as they have the longest range)
to weaken him. After he starts bleeding heavily from his leg (in
huge splats) launch the crate at him from the control panel at
the entrance of the cargo room.
Hint: Defeating the Worm:
Equip your Bow gun and combine it with arrows. Go inside
the facility and an intermission with Claire dodging the Worm's
attack will start. The battle will then start. When you see rocks
going through the floor, run the other way and shoot him with
the Bow gun. Continue this strategy until it is dead.
Hint: Defeating Zombies:
Note: This also includes the moth-infected ones. Knock
them down either with the handgun or the knife. The knife is recommended,
as it is most powerful when the zombie is on the floor and it
saves handgun bullets. Note: There can be difficulties when doing
this trick if you are surrounded by a lot of zombies. However
if you knife both upwards and downwards, it is possible to knock
a whole group of zombies down at once. You can then finish them
Hint: Avoid bats:
With Claire or Chris, use your lighter to avoid bats.
Keep it out and they will not bother you.
Hint: Survive longer as Claire:
In the prison compound, it is easier for Claire to
gather and save ammunition and healing items. When she is grabbed
and bitten by a zombie, repeatedly press the D-pad and
she will throw them off a fraction of a second sooner. She will
take about half the damage and takes about twice as long to die.
It will take four bites to change to yellow caution status. Yellow
caution lasts the longest, requiring at least four more bites
to reach orange caution. Always heal whenever possible if you
reach red danger status, as one hit will still cause death.
Hint: No zombies in metal detector area:
When you are ready to copy the hawk emblem, get into
the room with the duplication machine. Instead of copying the
plate, set off the alarm by taking something metal through the
detector, but do not turn the alarm back on. Copy the plate, then
when you are going back through there will be no zombies in the
Hint: Fun with Zombies:
If you want innovative ways to kill Zombies, try this.
There will be zombies on the dirt road that leads up to the mansion
(where you find the Gold Lugers) the first time you get there.
With your back to the concrete wall, let a zombie grab hold of
you and push him off. He will hit the railing and fall over it.
When you have a lot of Zombies chasing you, run up the nearest
flight of stairs. Shoot the first Zombie that climbs up the stairs
when he reaches the top, but not far enough to get at you. Shoot
him enough times with whatever handgun you have until he looses
his balance and falls down the stairs, killing every other Zombie
below that he lands on. You will not need to shoot the Zombie
more than three times to get him off balance. The best place for
this maneuver is near the end of the game, with Chris in the Moth
Hint: Door-opening Zombie:
In Claire's part of the game, go to the part in the
bottom floor of the torture room where you get the piano roll.
After you put the sword in the slot turn around, and go to the
back of the statue. Without killing the Zombie, pick up the piano
roll and leave the room. Go up the steps and you will hear a door
shut. Go back to the top of the steps and the zombie will have
gone through the door and will be walking up the steps to come
Hint: Alternate Nosferatu death:
There are two ways to kill Nosferatu, normally where
he will just fall to the ground and with the sniper rifle. If
you kill him with the sniper rifle, you will be treated to a sequence
featuring Claire blasting his heart into pieces.
After shooting the Nosferatu enough to where he is almost dead,
instead of wasting more ammunition, just take your hunting knife
and stab him in the chest. A FMV sequence showing you do this
Hint: Rescue Rodrigo:
Do not just run from the worm and let it eat Rodrigo.
Use about one or two full clips to drop the Worm. Although Rodrigo
will still die, he will give you the lighter, which will help
you get some items.
Hint: Finding Rodrigo in battle mode:
Start a battle mode game with any character. When you
encounter the hunters for the first time in the room with the
lift, look through the crates blocking the lift to find Rodrigo
.He will just be standing there with his mouth hanging open.
Hint: Rescue Steve From Gold Luger room:
When you hear Steve scream for help when you try to
leave, go back to the projection/model room. On the panel with
the ship, plane, magnum, pistol, and an ant select both the magnum
Hint: Escaping secret room with Golden
When you try to take the Golden Rugers in the hidden
room behind the shelf, extreme heat will begin to fill the room.
Your health will diminish very slowly, but the door will seal.
The only way out is to simply place the Rugers back in the slot.
Hint: Extra BOW gas rounds in battle mode:
During you fourth time as alternate Claire in battle
mode, look in the slot machine for BOW gas rounds. It takes about
five to kill the Boss.
Hint: MP100s in battle mode:
When playing as Chris in battle mode, go to the casino
room. Go to the slot machine. Instead of the First Aid Spray,
you may get a MP100S randomly.
In battle mode, go to the casino. Go to the slot machine and MP-100s
should be there. This may take awhile. Save and do not use them
until you get to the gulp worm Boss. Use the MP-100s to take him
down faster than the sub-machine guns.
Hint: Sub Machine Guns in battle mode:
When playing as Claire in in battle mode, go to the
casino room. Open the slot machine to find some Sub Machine Guns.
Note: It may take awhile to get them.
Hint: Portrait puzzle solution:
This is the sequence to solve the puzzle in the room
with the portraits. The number in parentheses is their position
clockwise when facing the door.
Beautiful woman holding tea set (4)
Middle aged man with red-haired twins (7)
Red-haired man holding a teaset (2)
Red-haired man with earthenware plate (6)
Man with earthenware vase (1)
Man with candlestick (5)
Young man from projector (3- up stairs)
Hint: D.I.J.'s journal:
You find D.I.J.'s journal in the slot machine in battle
mode. Sometimes you have to play more than once to find it.
Hint: D.I.J.'s identity:
The person who wrote the D.I.J. diary is the mouse
that jumps out of the locker in the Antarctica section of Claire's
scenario of the game.
Hint: Extra animations in battle mode:
When playing as Chris, after killing the Hunter and the Sweeper
in the locker room, go back to the smashed mirror and press Action.
Chris will do his hair.
When you get to the junction room, where you have the choice
of going into the casino room or continuing on with battle mode,
check the soda machine after killing everything. Steve will get
upset about not having money for the machine. Note: You may also
need to try the machine in the locker room.
Walk up to one zombie and press R to aim, then press L
to auto aim with the sub-machine guns. Steve will cross his guns
just like in the FMV sequences.
Look at the human torso in the insane doctor's office. Wesker
will tilt his glasses down and look at it disgusted.
When Claire in the freezing hallway, after killing the zombies.
Walk (do not run) back to the door you came in by and press Action.
She will be affected by the cold.
Press Action when Chris goes to the tiger statue. He will
