This walkthrough is intended to help you survive one of
the toughest Resident Evils since the first one. There may
be some SPOILERS in this walkthrough and some of
the more shocking moments (monsters jumping out and attacking)
may be revealed as part of the strategy. Please use this
walkthrough with discretion.
Claire's Cell - Items: Bullets, Green Herb, Knife
After the staring movie, equip the lighter to get out of the
cell. After grabbing all of the items, leave.
Hallway - Items: Bullets, Typewriter, Ink Ribbon
Save here if you feel like it.
Graveyard - Items: Briefcase
After the cutscene, dodge the zombies and leave. Don't
bother to go for the briefcase until you have the fire extinguisher.
Courtyard - Items: Handgun, Bullets
After the cutscene, go to the body by the wreck to get the
Prison Area - Items: Green Herb
If you want to pick up the M100Ps (dual automatic handguns)
and some ammo, go up the steps and into the Prison Mess Hall.
If not, go on to the Laboratory.
Prison Mess Hall - Items: Green Herb, Bullets
Blast the zombies, get the items and head into the bunk room.
Bunk Room - Items: M100Ps, Bullets(2)
Grab the ammo from the shelf by the window. Blast the
zombies and pick up the guns.
Area Outside Lab -
Get past zombies and head into laboratory.
Prison Laboratory - Items: First Aid Spray, Grenades
(Fire), Grenades (Acid)
Don't bother to pick anything in here up, yet. With the metal
detector, you won't be able to take it with you. Go into the
Prison Observation Room.
Prison Observation Room - Items: Typewriter, Ink
Ribbon, Hawk Medal
After the scene with Steve, grab the Hawk Medal from the desk
drawer and flip the switch by the blocked door. Throw the
Medal into the duplication machine and head back into the
Area Outside Lab. Flip the switch by the Roll-up door.
Blast zombies and pick up the Fire Extinguisher and the Padlock
Key from the guillotine. When you return to the Inner Prison,
be careful of the 2 Cerebus who will jump you. Use the padlock
key on the padlock on the gate, then return to the Graveyard.
Put out the fire with the extinguisher and pick up the briefcase.
Open it by viewing it in the Check option and rotating
it around to the latch on the top. You will receive the TG-01
alloy. Return to the Laboratory with the alloy. Before
placing the alloy in the duplication machine, set off the metal
detector to keep the zombies from crashing through the windows.
Use the TG-01 in the machine, collect your copy of the Hawk
Medal, turn off the alarm and run back through. Feel free
to leave any nonessential items in the storage chamber of
the metal detector. You will be returning later on. Return
to the Courtyard, avoid the zombies and use the copy
of the Hawk Medal on the door to leave the Prison.
Area Between Prison, Palace and Military Facility
Damaged Bridge - Items: Bullets, Green Herb (2)
Push the crate toward the other crates and get
on. Walk over to other side and go up the stairs.
Courtyard Between Areas
The first time you're here, there will be zombies walking
around. You can enter the Military Facility from here to get
ammo and the Bow Gun, but I suggest going to the Palace first,
as you'll have to go there anyway to get a security card to
continue through the Facility, and you won't really need the
Bow Gun if you have enough bullets for the hand gun and M100Ps.
Palace Courtyard - Items: Green Herb, Navy Proof
Kill the three dogs and head into the palace. If you have
room for one item in your inventory, you might want to head
down to the Jetty Dock to pick up the Arrows, Bullets
and Palace Map before entering the Palace.
Foyer- Items: Bullets
There is a computer at the desk. Enter the code NTC0394
to unlock the back door. If you have a full inventory, head
up the steps and into the Office to dump off items
in the Storage Box.
Office - Items: Storage Box, Typewriter, Bullets,
Green Herb, ID Card
Push the table near the locked door to reveal the ID Card.
Throw it in storage (especially since all it has is the code
noted above) or just don't bother with it at all. Go back
down to the Foyer and enter the Bathroom.
Bathroom - Items: Duralumin Briefcase, First Aid
Enter and grab all the items. Head out and enter the back
door of the Foyer.
Palace Hall - Items: Red Herb, Bullets
Kill the zombies and head to the Lounge at the
end of the hall.
Lounge - Items: Steering Wheel, Bullets, Gold Lugers
Hit the switch underneath the Golden Ant and then grab the
Steering Wheel. Ignore the Lugers. They're just a trap. Leave
and head out of the Palace. As soon as you try to open the
door, you hear Steve scream and the alarm go off. Run back
to the Lounge and go to the monitor that's opened from
behind the movie screen. Select C and E and then DECIDE. This
will let Steve out with the Gold Lugers. Now, leave the Palace
(with the Steering Wheel and M100Ps in your inventory) and
head to the Jetty Dock.
Jetty Dock - Items: Arrows, Bullets, Palace Map,
Side Pack (inside submarine)
Use the Steering Wheel at the dock and enter the submarine.
Pick up the side pack and throw the lever to go down. Run
down the steps and through the hall to the Airport Office.
Airport Office - Items: Bullets, Ink Ribbon
Run behind the desk and through the door to the Bridge. Cross
the Bridge to the Cargo Room.
Cargo Room - Items: Arrows, ID Card
Go over the to lift in the corner and go up into the Cargo
Lift Room. Access the controls to move the crane. When moving
the crane, pay attention to the shadow, so you will be able
to line it up to move the crate. Once your have moved the
crate, go back down to the Cargo Room and flip on the
blue switch for the cargo elevator. When the elevator comes
up, you'll be attacked by four zombies (aren't you glad you
brought the M100Ps?). Blast the zombies and get the items
off of the crates. Now, go back to the Courtyard Between
Areas and head into the Military Facility. If you
need to drop some items off at the Storage Crate, make sure
to keep the ID Card you just picked up.
Military Training Facility
MTF Courtyard - Items: Arrows
If you go here before heading to the Palace, there will
be Cerebus to deal with. After going to the Palace
and Airport, a Gulp Worm will attack. Dodge it and
head into the Entrance Area. Note: You won't have to
fight it until you play as Chris later in the game.
Entrance Area - Items: Red Herb, Bullets
Use the ID Card on the scanner by the closed door. Enter the
door to the Locker Room next to it.
Locker Room - Items: Arrows (3)
Kill the zombies and head into the Bath House/Sauna.
Bath House/Sauna - Items: Key with Tag
Run down to the pool and turn the valve handle to cut off
the water. Grab the key and head back into the Entrance
Area. From there, enter the Briefing Room.
Briefing Room - Items: Map, Arrows, Bow Gun Powder,
Print out the map on the copier. Go into the back room and
use the key on the cabinet to get the Bow Gun Powder. Leave
the Briefing Room and enter the open doorway near the
entrance from the courtyard. Head up the steps and enter the
Outer Lab - Items: Bow Gun
Grab the Bow Gun and leave. Go through the door in the Entrance
Area that you've already unlocked and head into the Inner
After Alfred starts shooting at you, run up the steps and
he'll run away. Enter the door to the 2nd Floor Hall.
2nd Floor Hall - Items: Bullets (2)
Run down the hall and enter the save room through the grey
MTF Save Room - Items: Typewriter, Green Herb (2),
Storage Box, Ink Ribbon, Hemostatic
I would suggest you save now. You're about to face a new enemy
that can hurt you pretty bad if you're not expecting it.
Storage - Items: Uzis
After getting the Uzis and going back to the door, you'll
be attacked by a Bandersnatch. Once through with it, head
down to the now open door. After a cut scene, you'll be in
control of Steve. With Steve, go through the Basement,
Maintenance Room, Boiler Room and Passage over Sewer,
being sure to kill everything. This will keep Claire from
having to fight the zombies later on when you return. Steve
won't be able to pick up any items, so don't even bother.
After a cut-scene and an elevator trip, head through the 2nd
Floor East Hall into the Walkway over the Garage.
Garage - Items: Bullets
After a fall and a few scenes, head to the side door and into
the hallway. Go to the Painting Room at the end of
Painting Room - Items: Typewriter, Ink Ribbon, Blue
Crest, Gold Key (after you get the Red Painting)
Grab the Blue Crest. Head back to the Garage. Exit
out into the Motor Pool.
Motor Pool- Items: Arrows
If you brought the M100Ps, equip them and shoot both Cerebus
at the same time. If not, try to get both of them in front
of you. Once through, head out to the MTF Courtyard and
back into the Main Hall. Go out to the Inner Courtyard
and place the Blue Crest on the setting across from the painting
to receive the Indigo Card. Go down the ladder into the Boiler
Room. Revisit the Basement and use the Indigo Card
to get the Grenade Launcher. Also pick up the Grenade Rounds.
Now, make the trip back to the 2nd Floor East Hall and use
the Indigo Card to gain access to the Surveillance Room.
Surveillance Room - Items: Green Herb (2), Grenades,
Go to the glowing monitor and use the camera to zoom in on
the painting. Remember the code "1126". Exit through
the side door out into the Inner Courtyard. Go down
into the Entrance Area and use the Indigo Card to unlock
the sealed door. Head up to the Outer Lab and enter
the code "1126" to enter the 2nd Floor Lab.
2nd Floor Lab - Items: Acid Grenades, Red Painting
Make sure to grab the painting last. When you do, you'll have
roughly 30-45 seconds to escape and return back to the Entrance
Area. Now, go back to the Painting Room and place
the Red Painting where you picked up the Blue Crest. Take
the Gold Key. Head back to the Palace. When you do,
two Bandersnatches will have replaced the zombies.
Portrait Room - Items: Earthenware Vase, Red Ant
Go through the Palace Hall and use the Gold Key
on the door at the end, next to the Lounge, to the
Portrait Room. Select the portraits in the following
order: Portrait of woman, Portrait of red-headed man with
twins, Portrait of redheaded man with tea set, Portrait of
redheaded man with earthenware plate, Portrait of grey-haired
man holding papers, Portrait of man with a candlestick, and
finally the large portrait of the blonde haired boy. Take
the vase and look inside to get the Red Ant. Now, go to the
Office and use the Gold Lugers on the door.
Private Office - Items: Bullets
Go to the computer and enter in the code 1971. Kill the
Bandersnatch and go through the now-open path to the Private
Residence. You will have to fight your way through Bandersnatches
in the Courtyard to get into the Private Residence.
Private Residence Foyer - Items: First Aid Spray,
Equip the lighter and head up the stairs. There is a door
on the first floor to the Trophy Room. Only enter there
if you need ammo (Bullets, Ink Ribbon, Arrows), because of
the Bandersnatches within. At the top of the stairs, enter
the door to the Bedroom Hall.
Bedroom Hall - Items: Bullets, Green Herb
After the cutscene, head around to Alexia's Bedroom.
Alexia's Bedroom - Items: Silver Key, Music Box
Examine the music box and close the lid. Grab the Silver
Key from the bed. Use the Red Ant on the music box and grab
the Music Box Plate. Head back to the Palace and first go
into the Casino, where you can pick up Explosive Arrow
Powder, Green Herbs (2) and Bullets. Next, go to the Palace
Hall. Use the Silver Key to enter the North Office
North Office Area - Items: Blue Crest, Bullets
Take out the two Bandersnatches and grab the Blue Crest
from the ground. Head back to the Office and get the
Hemostatic. Now, go back to Claire's Cell in the Prison
where you will exchange the Hemostat and Lighter for the Lockpick.
Now, while you're in the Prison, head over to the Area
Outside Lab, where you'll use the Blue Crest on the door
in the Guillotine area to enter the Open Hall to Infirmary.
Open Hall to Infirmary - Items: Green Herb, Bullets,
Get rid of the Zombies and head down into the caged in
area. Move the box out from behind the door and go inside
to grab the items from the Prison Laboratory. Also,
make sure to grab any items you left in the metal detector
and place them in the Storage Box (especially the Fire Extinguisher).
Use the lockpick on the Duralumin Briefcase you've already
found to get Explosive Arrow Powder. Once you are through,
go to the Infirmary.
Infirmary - Items: First Aid Spray, Bullets
Pick up the items and head into the Morgue.
Morgue - Items: Duralumin Briefcase, Bullets
Grab the items (being sure to open the Duralumin Briefcase
for the Handgun Parts) and head back into the Infirmary.
Kill the zombies and take the Glass Eyeball from the doctor
zombie. Place it in the anatomic sculpture in the side room.
Enter the hidden staircase and run through the hall to get
past the bats and into the Torture Chamber. Don't forget
to grab the Green Herb on the way through.
Torture Chamber - Items: Bullets, Arrows
Get past the zombies and head down to the Statue Garden.
Statue Garden - Items: Piano Roll, Rusty Sword
Pull the sword out of the statue. When the room starts
to fill with gas, turn and push the center statue, turning
it 180° to turn off the gas. Place the Rusty Sword in
the Iron Maiden that replaced the original statue you took
the sword from. A zombie should jump out. Kill him and grab
the Piano Roll. Now, leave the Prison. On your way
back to the Palace, stop in at the Military Training
Facility if you want to use the lockpick to get some extra
supplies: Painting Room - First Aid Spray, Maintenance
Room - Acid Grenades, Briefing Room - Bullets.
Either way, head back to the Palace and go to the Casino,
where you will place the Piano Roll into the Player Piano.
Take the Blue Ant out of the Slot Machine. Now head to the
Private Residence, making sure you have the Blue Ant
and the Record.
Private Residence Foyer
After fighting your way through a horde of zombies and
sneaking past two Bandersnatches, you'll find the foyer filled
with zombies, not bats. Either use the knife or handgun to
get them out of your way while you head up to Alexia's
Set the Blue Ant on the Music Box. Insert the Music Box
Plate. When the bed comes down, climb on it and go up the
ladder to the Attic.
Attic - Items: Dragonfly Key, Green Herb
Grab the Dragonfly and examine it. Detach the wings and
go over to the ant painting. Insert the Dragonfly Key in the
hole. Go up the ladder to the Attic Office.
Attic Office - Items: Air Force Proof, Bullets,
Ink Ribbon, Typewriter
Push the box over to the bookcase. Get on it and grab
the Confession Letter off of the top of the bookcase. Grab
the Air Force Proof. Head down the ladder and go back down
to Alexia's Bedroom. Head out and a series of scenes
will happen. Once the dust settles, leave the Private Residence
and make for the Jetty Dock, being sure to take the
Air Force Proof, Army Proof, and Navy Proof with you. Go through
the Airport Office to the Hangar.
Hangar - Items: Storage Box, Typewriter, Bridge
Place the three medals and enter the plane. After a scene,
grab the Bridge Lever and head back out. Go through the Airport
Office to the Cargo Room. Take the life to the
Cargo Lift Room and go through the door to the 2nd Floor
Bridge. Use the Bridge Lever to raise the bridge. Run
across and enter the Hydraulic Control Room.
Hydraulic Control Room - Items: Airport Key, First
Grab the Airport Key from the pile of zombies. Use the
Lockpick on the cabinet to get the First Aid Spray. Now head
back to the Cargo Room and use the Airport Key to enter
in the previously locked door to the Cargo Elevator Room.
Cargo Elevator Room - Items: Bullets, Grenades,
Green Herbs (2), Typewriter, Storage Box
On your first time through, I would highly suggest saving
here. Push the boxes underneath the stuck elevator door. Go
in the elevator and ride it up to the MTF Courtyard.
Run out into the Area Between Prison, Palace and Military
Facility and face the Tyrant.
BOSS - Blast the Tyrant with Flame and Regular Grenades
until he's face-down. You can also use Explosive Arrows, but
I would suggest to try and keep those for the second encounter.
Once through, run back to the Hangar and get into
the plane. After a series of cut-scenes, you'll have to head
out into the back of the plane. Once again, I would suggest
saving before going on.
BOSS - Once again, the Tyrant shows up. This time,
he's hard as hell. Hopefully, you have a ton of Explosive
Arrows to wear him down. When he starts moving around sluggishly
and bleeding, hit the button on the cargo catapult to launch
him out of the back of the plane. Be careful, because he can
take you out fairly quickly, even though he seems to move
slowly. Once you take him out, use your free save and go on
to part 2.

Zombies - Your basic RE monster. Use the handgun or knife
to kill them. If you're one-on-one, I'd suggest using the knife
to conserve ammo.
Cerebus - These undead dogs are faster than you and often
attack in packs. It is suggested that you kill them before moving
on in any area. When they are growling at you, aim the gun down
to shoot them before they charge.
Bats - Bats are annoying, period. You could waste the time
to shoot them, but the easiest method to get past them is to equip
the lighter. They'll leave you alone as long as the lighter is on.
Bandersnatch - These rubbery men can strike from a distance.
Normal ammo doesn't have much effect, but Explosive Arrows and Grenade
Albinoid - Just run past these nuisances. They'll shock you
but for minimal damage.
Moths - These poisonous flying annoyances can be dealt with
a handgun shot. They like the grab a hold of you and implant a poisonous
seed in your back.
Spiders - Run past these annoying monsters if you can. Be
careful as they spit poison.
Hunter - These violent monsters from RE1 and RE3 have returned.
They're fast and can cause a lot of damage quick. Their Achilles
Heel: Acid Grenades.
Poison Hunter - Same as the regular Hunters, except the can
Seekers - Flying robotic cameras that you should just avoid.
If they see you, an alarm will go off and Hunters will soon follow.
Ants - Don't bother wasting ammo on them. They're only in
one room and they cause next to no damage. Just run past them.
Tentacles - A few shotgun blasts should get these out of
your way. You'll only run into them twice in the game and you really
have no choice but to shoot your way past.
Use the 180° turn rather than backing away from enemies.
It's quicker and safer for you.
If your having trouble with ammo early on, use the knife
to finish zombie when they're on the ground.
If you know you won't ever be returning to a certain room
or area, don't waste the time to finish off the enemies. Just run
Don't waste good ammo on weaker monsters (zombies, moths,
Never use green herbs by themselves. They are always more
potent when mixed with red herbs and to a lesser degree with other
If you're running low on inventory space when picking up
items, prioritize: 1) Items that can be combined, 2) Key items,
3) Ammo that you currently have in your inventory, 4) Limited high-power
ammo (Magnum, etc.). Items like ink ribbons and arrows can be found
in mass quantities.
Always check key items in the menu to see if they can be
altered or if keys or cards are hidden in the items.
