You can decapitate zombies for a quicker kill. This works best with the Shotgun (the Magnum does it too, but you'll want to save your Magnum for boss battles). When a zombie comes after you, let them get close, and then point your Shotgun up and fire. This should decapitate them. However, the Shotgun does a good job at decapitating from a distance, too, which is what you should try to do if you are facing groups of zombies. Only use the pointing up method for lone zombies that you need to kill.
There are three types of healing herb found in the game - Green, Red and Blue. The below chart will list the the possible combinations and effects of each:
Green - Restores 25 percent of health
Green + Green - Restores 50 percent of health
Green + Green + Green - Fully restores health
Red - No effect alone
Green + Red - Fully restores health
Blue - Cures poison
Green + Blue - Restores 25 percent of health and cures poison
Green + Green + Blue - Restores 50 percent of health and cures poison
Green + Red + Blue - Fully restores health and cures poison
Note - No more than three herbs can be combined together. Therefore, it is not possible to combine three Green herbs and a Blue herb. Also, Blue herbs cannot combine with Red alone.
Note 2 - First Aid Sprays, the only other healing item found in the game, fully restores health.
It's possible to obtain Brad's S.T.A.R.S. Card to use on the PC terminal in the R.P.D. Main hall. This saves you the trouble of travelling to the meeting room in order to obtain Jill's S.T.A.R.S. Card.
In order to obtain it, you have to choose to 'Fight With the Monster' during the live-action scene that takes place after the cut-scene where the Nemesis kills Brad. Once you have selected this option, immediately use the dodge button to avoid the Nemesis' attack, and then run over to and examine Brad's body. Once you do, you should obtain a Card Case item. In the menu screen, examine te Card Case and you will obtain Brad's S.T.A.R.S. Card.
On the path leading to the Sales Office in the Uptown you will find a Square Crank lying on the floor. Now head back to the back alley where you saw Brad shooting at a few zombies before running off earlier on in the game. Next to the discarded toy boxes is a shutter that's been pulled down. Use the Square Crank in the device next to the shutter to open it, revealing three lots of 12 Grenade Rounds.
There's only point in doing this if you grabbed the Grenade Launcher from the Sub Station. If you forgot it, or haven't been there yet, then be sure to grab it!
Ending A - When confronted by Nemesis on the bridge between Raccoon Park and the Dead Factory, choose to push Nemesis off the bridge.
Ending B - When confronted by Nemesis on the bridge between Raccoon Park and the Dead Factory, choose to jump off the bridge. When later confronted by Nicholai on his chopper, choose to negotiate with him.
Ending C - When confronted by Nemesis on the bridge between Raccoon Park and the Dead Factory, choose to jump off the bridge. When later confronted by Nicholai on his chopper, choose to shoot his chopper down.
Note - In Ending A, Carlos will be flying the rescue chopper. In Endings B and C, Barry Burton from the first Resident Evil will be flying the rescue chopper to pick up Jill and Carlos.
To unlock the Boutique key, complete the game (on any difficulty) and choose to save over your game once you have done so. Start a new game on the save file and Jill will have the Boutique key. Enter the Boutique that is located in the Uptown area. Jill will be able to change her outfit from a variety of outfits. You can unlock more outfits by getting better ranks on each difficulty. To unlock all of them, just get an A rank on the Hard difficulty.
Keep in mind that you can return here anytime during the first half of the game to change your outfit. However, once you board the Tram in the Downtown area and leave the Downtown, you can no longer return to the Boutique to change your outfit.
Inside the Dead Factory resting room, you should find a Facility Key. This key cannot currently be used. When you head down to the room with the water check puzzle, look to the right of the puzzle and examine the machine. You can rewrite your Facility Key with it. Do so.
Once you have the Red Card Key (obtained after defeating Nemesis in the disposal room) head to the steam pipe room and use the Red Card Key to go down the elevator. Head through the corridor until you reach the lockers at the end. Use your upgraded Facility Key on the right locker, and inside will be a Rocket Launcher, loaded with four rockets. If you're worried about the timed escape from Raccoon City before the missile hits it, use all four rockets on the Nemesis when you fight him for the final time in the car disposal building.
When fighting a doogie, knock it down then aim downwards and you can shoot it quicker. If you do not aim down, you will have to wait until it stands up.
One of the combinations to making the vaccine medium in the hospital is I, III and A
If you are using Shotgun bullets, wait until the zombie is directly in front of you and then shoot them in the head. This will kill them with one shot saving a shotgun round per zombie.
First you need to have the magnum hand gun with at least twelve rounds for it, then start shooting at him and you should be able to kill him with eight hits or less!
