Hints

Safe Combination

The combination to the safe in front of the chief's desk at the police office, with all the zombies, is 2236. Open it to find shotgun shells and a map.


Gatlin Gun In Scenario One

For Leon, when you see the licker, (I think thats what its called), for the first time, let it kill you 4 times. Afterwards go back in the room where you got the shotgun and the gatlin gun will be in the cabinet, but you must either switch the shotgun or the magnum you got at the beginning of the game to get it. (trust me, you will want the gatlin gun because it makes the game a whole lot easier).


Zombies Walk Through Walls

Start a new game. Get to the Police Station courtyard, BUT DONT KILL THE ZOMBIES THERE! Lure the 2 zombies to the entrance and let them kill you. If done correctly,the zombies outside will walk through the wall and eat you.


Special Gun

On the B1 floor of the R.P.D station in the storage room that you needed a card key to get in to theirs four lockers two of them are closed the one to the right there will be special gun with 100% amo and on the right couner theirs two handgun amo boxes.


Secret Costumes

Start a new game on normal mode,go through the whole beginning of the game(the gun store and the alley)with out picking up any items.GO down the alley where there are stairs and brad will be there.Hes a zombie,enter the police station and go in the stars room(2nd floor)and take a weapon from the storage(if your Leon,get the shot gun,if your Claire,get the grenade launcher) go back out of the police station and kill brad with the weapon you got because you can't take him down with your hand gun.Next check his body and get a botique key,unlock the storage in the dark room (1st floor)and there will be costumes.You can now change your costumes in there.


Get Temporary Invincibility

To get this you must have one red, blue, and green herb in your inventory. First, you mix the green herb with the blue, and then add the red herb to the green+blue mixture use it at any time and get invincibility for a few minutes. (This is really helpful when fighting Tyrant or any boss)


Find A Custom Hand Gun

To get the Custom Hand Gun you must be Leon and have at least one small key, then go to the desk right outside the library and open the desk using the small key and combine the Hand Gun Parts to the Hand Gun and you'll have the Custom Hand Gun. (this will shoot three bullets at a time when you change the setting from manual to auto)


3 New Weapons With Unlimited Ammo

Start the game as a rookie. When you first start the game you'll have a gattling gun, machine gun, and a rocket launcher with unlimited bullets.


Get The Costom Magnum

In order to get the costom magnum. First when you get to the cable car where you shoot at the eye guys hand. When you get off the cable car you will see a cannon that shoots a flare. Use the lighter to shoot off the flare and it will reveal a key. Pick up the key. Later in the game inside umbrella incorperated you will come across a a bunch of lockers in the room before the room where you find the key card. Use the key on the locker with the light on it and use the key you found by the flare cannon. Inside the locker is magnum parts. Simply combine them with your magnum and you then have the custom magnum.


Get The Shotgun And Bowgun Right In The Beginning

The easy and quick way to get the shotgun in the beginning is first you start the game with either clair or leon and you get passed the zombies in the beginning and once you get to the gun shot you must go behind both counters and when the zombies break in and eat the owner. You then kill the zombies and go to the dead owners body and search him and if your clair you'll get the bowgun and if your leon you'll get the shotgun.


Tyrant's Ammuntion

In Leon or Claire's second scenario, the player will constantly run into a giant super zombie called Tyrant. Every time a Tyrant is defeated, the player can steal his ammunition: Shotgun shells or magnum bullets for Leon, and grenade rounds or bow gun bolts for Claire.


Easy Gator Kill

When fighting the gator, and he starts coming towards you, go and inspect the yellow light on the left wall. Then, the light will fall off and the gator will eat it. Now while the light is in its mouth, shoot it and the gator will explode.


Final Stage Bonus Room

The final stage has a bonus room that can be entered through a long but easy process. In the first scenario, have Leon or Claire use the red lab key card to enter the room with the giant flying moth. Kill the moth. Find the keyboard attached to the wall, kill the larvae on it and type your name in on the keyboard as "GUEST". Register your fingerprint. Go to the first floor of the lab and find the thumbprint reader panel. Use your fingerprint, and the panel should then ask for a second "fingerprint verification." Complete the game, and save the second scenario to any file. In the second scenario from the game you have just played, go to the final stage. Find the room on the first floor of the lab where wriggling plant vines are blocking the vent. The red lab key card should be there. Take it and go to the moth room with the keyboard. Enter your name as "GUEST" and register your thumbprint. Finally, go to the first floor and find the thumbprint reader. It should ask for the "secondary fingerprint verification." Do it, and the bonus room to the right of the panel should be unlocked. Look for a special weapon inside.

beneficial results. This will also save storage space for holding puzzle items.

1 green herb + 1 blue herb = 20% health recovery and poison antidote 
1 green herb + 1 red herb = Full health recovery
3 green herbs combined = Full health recovery
1 green herb + 1 red herb + 1 blue herb (in that order) = Cure-all (full health 
recovery and poison antidote)
