If you have any proximity mines, put them in your inventory now - they might come in handy soon.  Also take your grenade launcher with explosive rounds along.  When you gain control over your character again, check out the eastern side of the area and check for a [BSAA EMBLEM] under the bridge at the end.  At the end of the western side you should be able to find a [JEWEL BEETLE].  Exit the area by heading north, and glance at the document before leaving.

BSAA Emblem

The next area gives you a glimpse of my favorite enemy in the resident evil universe, the Licker.  Explore the room to your left and loot the two [BOXES] and grab the [MACHINE GUN AMMO].  There's also an [INCENDIARY GRENADE] and [HANDGUN AMMO] in the cabinet, and the room contains two documents.

Continue down the corridor, read another document and grab the [GREEN HERB] before going through the nearby door.  In the next room, take a good look at the flowers and collect [SHOTGUN SHELLS] from the desk.  You can power on the terminal to read an email message.

The next halls give you a good impression of the status the facility is currently in.  You'll come across a [BOX] before you get to a door with a valve.  Turn it, head inside the room, flip the lever and break the glass to continue.  In the next hall, run past the caged animals.  Don't worry, those won't do you any harm...  Grab the [GREEN HERB] from the northwest corner, then take a left and prepare for combat.

A classic scene from Resident Evil 2 repeats itself as two Licker Beta's swing through the glass windows.  They have a couple of nasty attacks, so quickly take care of them, preferable with a shotgun, or, if they're far away, a grenade launcher.  Open the door in the room where the lickers came out of and go down the corridor.  Loot another [BOX] and explore the monitor room to your right for a [RED HERB], [GOLD BARS (3000)] in the safe, and an [AK-74] from the suitcase.

Lickers are formidable foes, and you’re about to encounter a dozen. This video shows you how to specifically deal with such a situation. Damn right!

Continue down the hall and grab the [HANDGUN BULLETS] lying on the ground before you head upstairs.  Loot the [BOX] and pull the lever to get a glimpse of what's waiting ahead.  Open the door and quietly WALK in the center of the corridor to prevent the lickers from hearing you.  Gently open the door, make your way to the other door and, well, kick it in with the help of your partner.  Most of the time the lickers will hear you by now, so make a run for the end of the corridor and press the elevator button.  There are three [BOXES] here that you can loot while waiting for the elevator.  As the lickers come around the corner, use your grenade launcher to keep them at a distance (or grenades, perhaps).  When the elevator arrives, quickly hop on and get out of there.

There's a large stack of ammo right in front of you upon exiting the elevator.

Grab the [HAND GRENADE], [2x HANDGUN AMMO x20], [MACHINE GUN AMMO x120] and [SHOTGUN SHELLS x15], then make your way to the large circular area.  After a few scenes it's boss time, but you'll have to dodge the first attack during a cutscene (LT RT or R1 R2).


Is your big friend the eight-legged ultimate creature not really your friend at all? This video shows you how to own it...

This B.O.W. can be very tough on harder difficulties, but even on amateur it can prove a challenge.  In short, to defeat the boss you'll need to crack his shell and aim for his head when it has cracked.

To accomplish this, fire at his head/mouth whenever it is open.  If it's not open, don't even bother firing as your bullets will bounce off its thick armor.  After damaging the boss enough, it will temporarily fall down.  You can now toss a Hand Grenade into the boss' mouth by running up to it and pressing the prompted button.  This action causes the shell to crack.

In between this performance you'll have to dodge various attacks of the boss, some of which are very vicious.  He has a swing attack - for which the dodge button will not always appear, it has a ram attack that you can see coming if the boss moves slightly backwards first.  The most deadly attack of all has to be its pincer attack, and if he manages to grab you it'll be instant death.

You'll be needing hand grenades in this fight, and there's a fairly fortunate solution to this problem.  U-8 will occasionally spit out little flying henchmen to bug you quite literally.  When killed they'll drop items, mostly ammunition and hand grenades.  You can also find a few green herbs on the ground.

Keep at it and don't get unnecessary close to the boss when its mouth is shut.

All the above will eventually down this tough-armored B.O.W.
