In Chapter 1-1, you fight a MASSIVE Majini called the Executioner. Although his attacks hit hard, he's easy to kill. Stun him with pistol headshots, then perform a context melee move. Rinse and repeat, and you'll get the Golden Ring, which'll net you $5,000. You'll need about 25 pistol rounds, some healing items, and the patience of a Saint, but it can be easily done.
The Rpg can only be used once but the grenade launcher can stay with you. So Use the RPG Wisely when using it in combat.(The RPG Costs $10000 gold)
The best weapons to carry around are: The M93R Handgun (Samurai Edge), the Hydra triple-barrel Shotgun, the S&W M500 Magnum (Handcannon), an Infinite RPG, and the Gatling Gun or the Longbow. Make sure they all have infinte ammo. Put in a Melee Vest and a Bullet-proof Vest and two cans of First-Aid spray.
NOTES: To get the Samurai Edge, upgrade the M92F Handgun all the way
To get the Hydra, upgrade the Ithaca M29 Shotgun all the way
To get the Handcannon, upgrade the S&W M29 Magnum all the way
To get the Gatling Gun, upgrade the VZ61 Machine-gun all the way
To get the Longbow, upgrade the S75 Rifle all the way
To get the Infinite Rocket Launcher (RPG) beat the game in under 5:00:00 (5 hours)
I do believe this is on here, but, in case it isn't, there's a rather easy way to kill the first Uroboros creature in Chapter 1-2. Basically, you need to knock over one of the red gas canisters on the room's walls. Lure Uroboros over this, and it will stick to him. Now, as long as you don't get too far away from him (this makes him teleport closer and lose the gas cylinder), you can lead him into the furnace. Shooting the cas cylinder attached to him will cause him to turn into a puddle, which signifies that he is stunned. Quickly run out of the furnace, flip the switch, and incinerate him. Note: this keeps you from taking his treasure item that he drops, but it will save you tons of pain, time, and ammunition.
Okay so this glitch may be obvious to many but for those who don't know it's pretty easy to figure out. After completing any chapter in the game, your able to go back to it over and over and break open the same crates from earlier and get gold, herbs and ammo. Then quit and it will save and you automatically keep the stuff. It can be helpful to do this especially for the ammo since bosses are hard to defeat. Be sure to also upgrade weapons as much as possible. So hopefully this helps.
Most of the stages they'll drop pistol ammo (almost all the stages will have pistol ammo) but in some stages they'll drop more of machine gun ammo or shotgun ammo but i hope that helped.
You can easily avoid the whole fight with Wesker by following these easy steps.
1:Have a rocket launcher, give your partner one too in case you miss.
2:At the start of the fight have the Chris player run across the bridge until he falls, when Wesker jumps down to follow him get to higher ground, then make sure the sheva player uses a sniper rifle on Wesker from the hill shes on and keep shooting his back until his heart is exposed, then have the Chris player equip the rocket launcher and shoot Weskers heart, if done correctly Wesker will die immediatly,this is useful for an S rank and avoidance of the button mashing parts.
As always hope this helped.
Unlike it's predecessors, Resident Evil 5 only features two types of healing herb - the ever-present Red and Green herbs. The Yellow herbs from Resident Evil 4 have been removed, and both Chris and Sheva start out with their health bars maxed out. The chart below lists all possible combinations and the effects of herbs when used:
Green - Restores a small amount of health
Green + Green - Restores a large amount of health
Green + Green + Green - Fully restores health
Red - Cannot be used alone
Green + Red - Fully restores health
Note - White Chicken Eggs restore a small amount of health, Brown Chicken Eggs restore a large amount of health and Gold Chicken Eggs fully restore health. Also, First Aid Sprays fully restore health.
An easy way to get money early on in the game is to get up to chapter 2-1 and then replay the fiorst mission a few times. The reason for this is it is the easiest mission and has lots of Ammo and Healing items in it. Also when you kill the big guy with the Axe he drops and item woth $5000. Also if you are playing on Co-operative you both get this item so it is at least 5,00 each for an easy mission plus loads of ammo and healing items to boot. Your eally only need to use the handgun in this level too so you can get lots of rifle and shotgun ammo from dead enemies.
If you want to get a ton of gold just repeat Chapter 2-1, 3-1, and 4-1 because they have alot of treasurs.
Sometimes when you shoot rats they will dropp random amounts of money
Many of you may know but if not here it is. In the Marshlands mission get on the boat and go around to the different islands and you will find jewelry plus the RPG then after you do quit and do it again. Doesn't take very long plus no zombies to fight and lots of money!
Having trouble killing that Majini with a rotten egg? Heres an easier way to do it, but you have to beat the game once or until you unlock the liquid nitrogen rounds for the grenade launcher (freezes enemies on contact). Anyways, start chapter 1-1 and make sure there are plenty of enemies around to distract Sheva, otherwise she'll shoot them before you get the chance to throw the egg =(. But as soon as you shoot an enemy with the nitrogen round, they'll be frozen...switch to the rotten egg and throw it at them, they should shatter into bits :D! And theres your egg on your face.
Happy Gaming- How Can I Assist You
The Silver Suit Cases have new weapons inside but sometimes u have to kill the zombies to get a new weapon.
When the exicutioner majini busts through the wall, simply run outside, keep going straight and take the last left.Then take another left and there should be a flight of stairs.Go up those stairs and jump to another building. The exicutioner majini will not jump after you....he will patroll the building you are on. (*note*) you will not get the gold ring
Hate those enemies that attack you and you have to press a button to dodge? Low on ammo at the time? Reload then dodge... Whenever you think your going to dodge reload, if you time it right, not even a second after you reload the dodge conformation should appear, that's when you dodge. If you time it right you will dodge and have max ammo. If you miss you will take damage, but still have max ammo.
Hope this hint helps you survive longer.
When you get the furnace key and unlick the door you are attacked by the second boss, which appears to be loads of tenticles araped round a deab body. Do not shoot at it yet as you will just waste ammo. Go back to the room where you get the key off the dead solder. Now knock over the cannister next to the door and stand just round the corner, when the boss walks over it he will consume it into himself. Now run into the furnace just behind you and he will follow, shoot the cannister when the boss is fully insode the room. Now run outside and turn on the furnace at the control panel, this will clost the doors to seal him inside and kill him. And that is boss 2 beat and you will have only used 1 bullet. Kepp in mind that Sheva will still fire at him so it is better for co-operative play as you can tell your friend not to shoot. Hope this helps.
For the guy with the axe that kills the person you talk to about the black market deal, if you can't kill him, run past him as soon as he breaks the gate. If you run all the way down, and take two lefts, you should see the ramp where the guy with the microphone was, and after you get up there, jump onto another roof, the fat guy can't make it and he'll just patrol around until Captain Kirk rescues you and you'll complete the level.
I found one you missed. It is between # 21 & 22 in the last laser beam room. You have to go into the little room by the statue then turn around and look up. Watch out for the crab things.
Ok I recamend using a fully upgraded hydra shotgun with infinet and an infinet rocket launcher because that will get you through the game easily and it has enough power to easilly kill normal foes and the rocket can kill harder enamies like reapers (if you don't no what they are the bug things) and if you use that combo and play the 1st mission on amature you will almost never die unless you really mess up also doin that will help you rack up exchange points and gives you a pretty good amount of gold per runthrough
If you need a lot of money quickly load the chapter were you have to battle all the lickers. Each one of them should drop a jewel. Then just quit the game and repeat as many times as needed. Or do the egg cloning glitch. Doing that glitch will give you even more money.
