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.
The easiest way to subdo Mr. X with Claire is the always deadily acid rounds. Also save up on the ole flame rounds for William's face cause a few of those bad boys and he's toast. One last thing on Leon A if you wanna try something new use the flamethrower on him once the count starts.
Successfully complete either character's first and second scenarios in less than three hours. Then, play the game again with the other character, and successfully complete their first and second scenarios in less than three hours.
Play the game a third time and complete either character's first and second scenarios again in less than three hours. Note: The game must be saved less than twelve times during each of the six scenarios played and bonus weapons must NOT be used.
Tofu must reach the second floor of the police station from the sewer with just battles and no puzzles. Tofu can not use any weapons other than a knife. Sucks huh?
Just a little help for those who want to add a little something in their files. In the S.T.A.R.S. Office, go to the desk next to the photo of the S.T.A.R.S. Members. That's Wesker's desk. Search it for at least 30 times and a film roll will appear. Take it and go back to the dark room on the first floor. If you decide to reveal the film's content, a photo of a girl should appear. This photo will be saved in your files.
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.
Note - Claire does not have any weapons that decapitate zombies.
The Ivy enemies (mutated plants) do not need to be killed. You face very few in the game, but you can easily run past all those that appear. Due to the very slow reaction time of these enemies, you can almost guarantee that you'll get by unscathed. This is very useful, as fighting these enemies often risks you getting poisoned by their attacks.
If you wish to play through the game using the Gatling Gun, be aware that Lickers will still run blindly into the gunfire. Therefore, if they get close enough before you shoot them enough times to kill them, they can still attack you.
This applies to Leon's scenarios only.
Handgun Parts - Inside the locked desk outside of the library (corridor-side exit). A Small Key is required to open the desk.
Shotgun Parts - Inside the Vacant Factory passages. From the entrance to the factory outside of the sky tram, head down the left hand corridor first, then the left hand corridor again in the second passage room.
Magnum Parts - Inside the locker in the large chemicals room on the B5 floor of the laboratory (the room opposite the moth's chamber). The W. Box Key is required.
Combine each of the Parts with the corresponding weapon to increase the usefulness of the weapon in various ways.
Here I will list what you need to do to obtain each ranking:
A ranking - Beat the scenario in under three hours without using any First Aid Sprays or weapons that take up two item slots.
B ranking - Beat the scenario in under three hours, but by using a First Aid Spray and/or a weapon that takes up two item slots.
C ranking - Beat the scenario in over three hours, but less than seven.
D ranking - Fail to meet all of the above requirements.
Get an A and you'll get a free weapon.
When the giant alligator (or crocodile, whatever!) comes out, run back to where the panel on the wall is. Press X and a big cannister will fall. When the gator grabs it, shoot the cannister, and the gator will be blown up.
On that gigantic elvator, the one you fight mutated William Birken on, go inside and go towards the toilet and check it.
There should either be Flame Rounds for Claire or Shotgun Shells for Leon.
get the regular shotgun and aim it at your local zombie as he comes closer et ready to blast, shoot and tap up at the same time.
This spreads the pelets up its rotten body tearing it apart! sometimes it blows them in half.
This is effective when u are surrounded it is more powerfull than a regular shot.
this also works well on nemisis.
