Welcome to my first guide. This guide will provide information
on the weapons of Resident Evil 2. Enjoy!

2.The Weapons
--------------------------------

Resident Evil 2 has a lot of weapons.
Leon's weapons are far more stronger than Claire's,
but Claire gets a Grenade Launcher with different
rounds, which is pretty cool.


The information will be shown in this order:

The tips will include the weapon's general strategies,
as well as various other things.

--------------------------------
2.1 Leon Weapons
--------------------------------

Leon has a bigger selection of guns than Claire has.
He gets a Shotgun and a Magnum, which are his main advantage
over Claire's arsenal. His weapons are very effective against bosses. 
He also has the ability to upgrade his weapons.

--------------------------------
[[ Knife ]]

Full Name: Combat Knife

Ingame Description: A combat knife. It could come in handy...

Description: The knife, as CODE: Veronica states, is a veteran
survivor's first choice. This is true if you're doing a knife 
only run, but otherwise get rid of this thing as soon as you 
can. It inflicts low damage, and is dangerous to use against
stronger enemies.

Clip Size: -

Ammo: -

Where To Find: You begin the game with this in your
inventory.

Tip: As said earlier, stash this thing in the Item Box once you get a chance.

---------------------------------
[[ Handgun ]]

Full Name: H&K VP70

Ingame Description: H&K VP70. Manufactured by H&K, Germany. It uses 9mm
parabellum rounds.

Description: The trusty handgun. It's a good gun to
waste zombies or cerebus. Ammo is plentiful.
It isn't strong though, so avoid using this on lickers
and other stronger enemies.

Clip Size: 18 Rounds

Ammo: Hand Gun Bullets

Where To Find: Leon begins with this weapon
in his inventory.

Tip: Great gun to use against weaker enemies. 

----------------------------------
[[ Custom Handgun ]]

Full Name: H&K VP70 Burst

Ingame Description: H&K VP70 Burst. VP70 with stock holster. Capable of firing
three round auto bursts.

auto burst function is perfect for quick zombie kills.

Clip Size: 18 Rounds

Ammo: Hand Gun Bullets

Where To Find: You will find the handgun parts in the locked
drawer in the 2F Break Room. Combine the parts with the handgun
to get the Custom Handgun.

Tip: The burst function is quite effective. It has a nice knockback
against zombies, but don't overuse it though, because it will chew through
your ammo in a matter of time. Use manual mode if you think you're 
low.

-------------------------
[[ Shotgun ]]

Full Name: Remington M1100-P

Ingame Description: Remington M1100-P. It uses 12 gauge rounds.
Smaller than a standard M1100, as it's barrel is cut.

the beginning of the game, but later on you will find plentiful
amounts of shells.

run to him and check his body twice.

a group of zombies. Also handy against lickers.

---------------------------
[[ Custom Shotgun ]]

Full Name : Remington M1100

Ingame Description: Remington M1100. M1100 full size semi-automatic.
The longer barrel results in more concentrated blasts.

against stronger enemies, but due to it's sheer kick, it has a long
recovery time.

Clip Size : 7 Shells

Ammo: Shotgun Shells

Where To Find: You will find the parts on a dead body in the vacant factory.
Combine the parts with the shotgun.

Tip: By the time you find the parts for this, you'll
have plenty of Shotgun Shells. This boomstick should be
your main weapon during the lab part.

----------------------------
[[ Magnum ]]

Full Name: Desert Eagle .50 A.E

Ingame Description: Desert Eagle .50 A.E. A high caliber magnum pistol. It uses
powerful .50 A.E rounds. By IMI Israel.

A Game: In the Night Watchman's
room. Go to the area where the beds are.
The magnum will be on the cabinet behind the body.

save those .50's.

Tip: Use it with the remaining ammo on the final boss.

-----------------------------
[[ Flamethrower ]]

Full Name: Flamethrower

Ingame Description: Chemical fuel flame-thrower made by Umbrella Inc.
The fuel is fed from a small cartridge.

Description: The flamethrower makes an appearance from RE1. It's not the best
weapon, but it can come in handy against the plants. It takes up two inventory
slots.

Clip Size: 100%

Ammo: -

Where To Find: In the lab's sleeping
quarters. Check the locker.

Tip: The Flamethrower isn't worth the two inventory slots it
takes up. Skip it, unless you are running low on ammo.

-----------------------------
2.2 Claire Weapons
-----------------------------

Claire has a smaller choice of weaponry than Leon.
Her main advantage is that she has a Grenade Launcher that
can use various types of rounds. She can also get
the Colt S.A.A, a neat six shooter.
------------------------------

^ See "Knife" in Leon Weapons ^

------------------------------
[[ Handgun ]]

Full Name: Browning HP

it against zombies and cerebus.

in her inventory.

Tip: Again, ammo is plentiful, so use it against
the basic enemies.

[[ Colt S.A.A ]]

Full Name: Colt Single Action Army

Ingame Description: Colt S.A.A. Artillery model. Used by
cowboys in the wild west. Designed for a quick draw.

Description: Claire's special obtainable weapon.
Although it rips through zombies in seconds, it
chews up ammo like mad.

Clip Size: 6 Rounds

Ammo: Hand Gun Bullets

Where To Find: (THIS WEAPON IS ONLY OBTAINABLE IN NORMAL MODE)
Once you begin the game, proceed to the R.P.D WITHOUT picking up
any items. Once there go to the underground passage.
You will see a zombie Brad Vickers. Waste him, then check his body
for a Special Key. Proceed to the Dark Room in the R.P.D and use
the key on the locker. It will contain an outfit and the gun.

Tip: Though it's a nice weapon, it's a better choice to skip it.
It's fast firing rate and small clip size mean you will have to
reload alot.

------------------------------
[[ Grenade Launcher ]]

Full Name: M79 Grenade Launcher

Ingame Description: M79 Grenade Launcher. Various rounds can be
used. The cut stock causes a greater recoil. Made in the USA.

and Acid rounds.

           body twice.
        2) In the Powerhouse outside the R.P.D.

B Game: S.T.A.R.S office weapon locker.

Tip: This weapon shoots 3 arrows at a time, so it's
quite effective for groups of zombies. When facing
a single zombie, try to hit it from a short distance,
so that all 3 arrows hit the zombie, causing
maximum damage.

------------------------------
[[ Spark Shot ]]

Full Name: Spark Shot

Ingame Description: High voltage gun to repel experimental
