The next instalment of the Resident Evil series takes us to Africa where the origins of the virus are to be discovered.  You will take control of a returning character from the series, Chris Redfield.  Being a huge fan of the series I could not resist the urge to present you with a complete Guide to enhance your own experience.  I hope you enjoy the Guide, which will be as spoiler free as possible, and hopefully the game will bring you tons of entertainment.

  Key features of the Guide:

 - No spoiler scenes described
 - For Xbox 360 and PS3 both
 - Covers all items and collectibles
 - Do optional things as soon as possible
 - Optional things integrated into the walkthrough

Hey guy who wants to beat the scorpion. At the start of the battle run up the hill to your left and run into the little green shed there you will pick up something called proximity mines when you do this you will be stuck in there just wait it out until the monster destroys the shed. Once you are free again place the proximity mine on the ground and run away to be safe run in a circle all the way around making sure the monster is chasing you. Once you pass your place mine turn around to face the Monster and shoot the mine when it is just about to move over it. Once shot the mine will play up causing the monster to fall to the ground for around 30-45 seconds allowing you to get behind it so you are viewing its tail end on the soft pink underside of its tail.Once there begin blasting away with your shotgun as much as you can and then simply rinse and repeat it should take no more than three times to beat it hope this help if you have anymore questions for anybody please add me on msn at i would go as far as calling my self a Resident Evil pro so please ask me anything

I beat wesker by shooting that thing in his back going to his back hold x to restrain and boom just press a fast(get his attention by shooting his back at the part where you and Sheba seperate

The best way to do this is buy a rocket launcher and a magnum handgun shoot him with the magnum and when the weak spot on his back shows up shot his back NOT his front and he will die.
