All items will have vanished from the previous stage .. That rocket launcher must’ve gotten an enormous burst range.  The only items that can be gotten now are two [HAND GRENADES] on the very top of the building you started out in.  I don’t know if it matters if you grabbed the three grenades earlier, perhaps someone can confirm this.

Head north and loot the [WOODEN BARREL] in the small cabin up ahead.  Drop down the sewers and smash an other [WOODEN BARREL] to the west end.  You can grab the loot behind the bars without any problems.  Climb the ladder back up and proceed to the western double doors.  There’s also a hole leading to the wooden barrel you just looted already, so you can safely ignore that.

In the next area, head inside the house and grab the [HANDGUN BULLETS x10] from the table.  Loot the [WOODEN BARREL] next to it and inspect the drawer cabinet nearby.  Chris is so awesome, he doesn’t even have to open it to know that there is nothing useful inside!  Head outside and inspect the broken ladder.  Give Sheva a boost and she’ll spot a shiny item.  However, it’s not possible to get inside, so she hops back down.

Continue down the streets to the west and you’ll encounter a handful Majini’s.  Kill them and grab the supplies from the two [WOODEN BARRELS] to the north, of which one is placed somewhat out of sight.  Head south a slash the [TOMATOES] to find an item.  Go inside, kill the Majini that drops from above and loot the [WOODEN CRATE].  Back on the streets, check the southeast dead end to find an other [WOODEN CRATE], and stand near the broken ladder to give Sheva a boost.

Proceed to the northern building to find the [•OLD BUILDING KEY] you spotted earlier.  Three Majini will assault you, so kill them and have your partner cover you.

Continue through the building on the southwest and jump through the window of the other house to find a [WOODEN CRATE].  Head back outside and follow the path to find a [WOODEN BARREL] around the corner.  As you proceed down the alley, a Majini will jump from behind several boxes.  Up ahead, some [TOMATOES] can be slashed for an item.

The door upstairs is locked from the inside, so follow the streets and locate the other door under the stairs.  Before you enter, loot the [WOODEN BARREL] first.  Inside, grab [SHOTGUN SHELLS x5] from the cabinet and check the other room for two [WOODEN CRATES].  Head upstairs and search the western room for a [FIRST AID SPRAY].  A [WOODEN BARREL] can be looted on the balcony.  At this balcony, check the building on the opposite street to the south thoroughly and look for a shiny [BSAA EMBLEM] and shoot it.  The eastern balcony houses two Majini’s, but there’s also an [ANTIQUE CLOCK] in a treasure chest there.  Drop down and kick the door in with your partner.

After the scene, don’t rush to the stairs up ahead, instead unlock the blue door to the west with the Old Building Key.  Inside you can find a [WOODEN CRATE], but a much more important find is the [ITHACA M37] Shotgun.  Now head for the stairs, and loot the [WOODEN BARREL] under the stairs first.  After the scene you’ll face a new enemy type, a quite powerful one this early in the game.

This is a video showing how to deal with the upcoming Cephalo and Majini's.

Empty your shotgun on it, especially on the mutated parasite when she is lying on the ground, and kill the other Majini’s that join the party.  If you defeat the Cephalo, you’ll be rewarded with an [IVORY RELIEF].  A [WOODEN CRATE] can be found in the other room.  If you proceed to the southeast area (with the parked car), four more Majini’s will enter the stage.  The gate can only be opened from the other side by kicking/shooting the lock three times.  Grab the loot from the two [WOODEN BARRELS] here and exit through the western door.

You can move through the building with a relatively fast pace, as there aren’t any items on the ground floor.  As you move upstairs, inspect the black goo that is dripping from above.  It’s even possible to take a shower...

Up ahead you’ll spot an Alpha Team casualty and a [WOODEN CRATE].  In the next room, more dead team members are hopefully resting in peace.  Loot the [WOODEN BARREL] in the corner and climb the ladder.  Go around the room and check the treasure chest in the southwest corner to find [GOLD (300) x2] and [GOLD (400)].  Jump back over to the door and look at the water tank up above on the west.

Shoot the [BSAA EMBLEM] that’s right underneath it.  Loot the two [WOODEN BARRELS] to the northern side of the room and proceed to the destination marker by kicking in the door with the help of your partner.

Things have gone horribly bad.  After the scene, check the body for [HANDGUN BULLETS x10] (he didn’t even have a Magnum? Tssk..) and loot the two [WOODEN CRATES] in this room.  Exit the room and go down with the elevator at the end of the hall.
There’s a [WOODEN BARREL] right in front of you when you get to the next area.  Head down the hall until you get to a room with three [WOODEN BARRELS] and a locked door.  The path to the south leads to an incineration room, and there are three more [WOODEN BARRELS] along the way.  Move towards the body and loot two more [WOODEN BARRELS].  Grab the [FURNACE KEY] and head back to the locked door.


This is a video demonstration on how to defeat the first boss in Resident Evil 5; Uroboros. Use the gas cylinders to your advantage and lure the boss into the incineration chamber.

It’s boss time!  The B.O.W. that killed Alpha Team is now chasing you.  Knock over one of the gas cylinders and have the boss swallow it.  One of you should lure the boss inside the incineration chamber while the other activates the mechanism (or order Sheva to do this).  If you blow the swallowed canister while the boss is inside the chamber, it’ll splatter to bits for a short period, allowing you to easily get out.  If you don’t have any more cylinders, simply lure the boss in and stand next to one of the doors while trying to keep the boss at a distance with gunfire.  Jump underneath the door when it’s between 1/4th and halfway down, and the boss should be trapped.  On Veteran Mode you’ll need to incinerate the boss twice, on lower difficulties only once.

Head back to the locked door and exit the area. Grab the three [HANDGUN BULLETS] as you exit.  Before you hop on the elevator, check the right of the corridor and spot a [BSAA EMBLEM] through a fence.  It’s located next to a ventilator in the background.
