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!
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.
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)
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.
The Silver Suit Cases have new weapons inside but sometimes u have to kill the zombies to get a new weapon.
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)
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
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.
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.
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.
I have made a list to help those of you who are struggling to cope with the enemies of RE5 I have made a list of Enemie strategies and tips&tricks.
Majini:shoot for the legs and use a physical attack may stun or kill, aim for the head takes 1-3 shots depending on firepower of equipped weapon.
Cephalo:these are the majini that have that worm like thing popping out of their head, an easy way to take these guys down is with a grenade launcher loaded with flash rounds,a magnum or the Sniper Rifle if you don't have any of those just use a flash grenade.
Duvalia:these are those crab like creatures that some majini transform into after death, a flash grenade will easily take these guys out if your out of those aim for the tail like thing inbetween it's legs then once it staggers aim for the face with a high powered weapon.
Bui kichwa: these are the spider like enemies you ecounter later on, a flash grenade can stun them temporarily, a machine gun or hand gun would be the easiest way to tackle these creatures.
Reaper:these are mantis like enemies you meet later on if they get close they can kill you in one hit either hit it with an RPG-7 for a 1-shot kill or use a flash grenade then damage it till it's white weak spot shows and fire at that with a high powered shotgun or magnum.
Licker B:these are enemies you meet from 5-1 to 5-3 acid rounds can hurt these enemies severely but 2 magnum shots should kill it, if your having trouble use nitrogen rounds and shoot their frozen bodys before they thaw out for an instant-kill.
Chainsaw Majini:you meet these guys in 2-1 onwards an easy way to take these guys down is with an explosive barrel, 3 should do it if no luck get a magnum or sniper rifle and aim at it's exposed eye once he is staggered run up and melee him,if still no luck a rocket launcher kills him in one shot.
Uroboros:1 shot from a rocket or luring it into the furnace should do it, if no luck let him absorb the gas canisters till he explodes.
Uroboros Aheri: you meet it in 6-2 as a boss, take out it's first two tentacles with a rifle or rocket launcher then when it's giant orange weak spot is exposed use the satellite laser or a sniper or a rocket launcher to quickly kill this boss.
Uroboros upgraded: you meet this mean monster in 5-1 either use a rocket launcher for an instant kill or use the flamethrower mounted on the wall if no luck let it absorb all the gas canisters till it explodes.
U-8:the ultimate bioweapon, use frag grenades on it's mouth after you have slied his weak spot on his leg open or use an rpg-7 on it's mouth for an insta kill.
Big man majini:use a magnum 3 shots should kill him, 2-3 shots with a rifle depends on which one or one shot kill him with an Rpg-7.
Executionor Majini:you meet him in the first chapter he can be defeated by sniping his exposed skin on his back or throwing 2-3 frag grenades at him (depends on difficulty) if no luck use an Rpg-7 for an instant kill.
Dogs:use a magnum or rocket for an easy kill, when it splits into two use a flash grenade for an instant kill, if no luck lead it to a oil drum or explosive barrel and shoot that it should kill the dog/s.
Giant Majini:use a magnum or shotgun on the legs until hes staggered then melee him do this 3 times he should die or use an Rpg-7 for a one shot kill if you don't have one fire away with the magnum or shotgun untill he falls.
Flying Plaga: use a magnum or sniper for easy kills, even a handgun works wonders on these infected.
:tips and tricks:
Use the inventory to reload it's faster than manual reloading.
Use the d-pad for quick switches between items.
If you see a majini climb a ladder beneath you jump down the ladder and it should make him fall of giving you an opening to melee him.
Thanks for reading hope this guide helped

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.
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.
Ok, the easiest way of getting this achievement is on Capter 2-2.
What you'll need:
A good sniper
Sheva WITHOUT a Sniper
After you go up the stairs leading into the building where Irving, he is taken away by the masked being (Jill) and you are left to try and snipe everybody below and then go down after them.
If you go to the windows on the right and move back a few steps the turret will not hit you, and you should be able to see only the head of the Majini on the turret, which you can then pick off with your sniper.
Kill every Majini down there except for the one in the back of a ute with the crossbow. He's really close to your position and is actually quite a good shot.
After he is the last one remaining, stand as close as you can to the window and weild your knife. Wait for him to shoot, and swing almost straight after. He can only see the top half of your body, so he can't aim at your feet to make it difficult. He'll aim at your upper body, where your knife is, so it's pretty hard to not hit the arrow.
The key is timing.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
