If you have decided to take on this adventure… we might as well do it well equipped
Whether you have already played the title way back in 1998, or if you are new to this world, you will have understood that weapons are very important.
Some of them are easily found, you can in fact find them as loot or by doing certain actions, while others you can lose them if you do not rely on exploration and a certain flair.
Finding certain types of weapons will significantly affect the difficulty of the game (not many zombies resist anti-tank rockets).
During the first part of the game you will have access to a rather poor arsenal, at your disposal there will be only a gun and a knife. The more you delve into the horrors of Raccoon City, the greater the risks and rewards ...
Like the old Resident Evil 2, there will be weapons that only one character can use, for example Claire can have a very useful Grenade Launcher, while Leon Scott Kennedy will have the Shotgun.
Weapons with infinite hits
If you like to win easy, the game will reward certain actions with infinite ammo weapons, do you want to know what to do? Here you are satisfied:
- Samurai Edge (Original Model) (Pistol): Complete the game with an S rank or higher on Standard difficulty.
- LE 5 (Machine Gun): Complete the game with an S rank or higher on Hardcore difficulty.
- ATM-4 (Rocket Launcher): Complete Leon's story (scenario A or B) with rank S + on Hardcore difficulty.
- Minigun (Rotating barrel machine gun): Complete Claire's story (scenario A or B) with rank S + on Hardcore difficulty.
- Infinite Combat Knife (Dagger): Destroy all of the Mr. Raccoon figurines during the game.
Among other things, we remind you that even weapons with infinite ammunition must be reloaded.
A headshot is forever
Now that Resident Evil 2 has become a third person shooter, you will have the choice of where to hit your enemies. If you have a few shots in the barrel it will not be easy to eliminate opponents with a headshot (it takes 4 well-placed shots, more or less), but you can slow down the wave of the undead by hitting them in the leg.
