Hidden Audio Trick 2

After you see Leons AWESOME video clip played by Metallica, there is another clip that blows your mind away. At the biginning of the game pick Clarie. Then you will see the wiered dude with his cheak missing and some music in the backround. When you see him press start ONCE! Then the molment you see Claries tire, press play to the song "Cemetary Gates" by Pantera. You will be stunned by the performance that it displays and posseses.

Level Select

You can select any level you want without beating each individual level.

Zombies Weak Spot

Durring game play when zombies are trying to attack you, stand back and aim up at their heads. Before you actually play the GAME there is that video, just watch it and you will find out where the weak spot is because its either Leon or Claire who shoots one of the zombies in the head. When you do this it only takes about 2 shots to kill the zombies.

Kill Cabin Zombies

Go to the cabin(it's the building down below the helicopter burning, after you go down the stairs), and look into the window above the desk with the typewriter. A message will pop up on the screen that says "Zombies are inside!" Now go to the door to the left of the cabin and open it. The door will open slower than usual and two zombies will come out.

Beat William Birkin Scenario 1

At the last fight it took me a while to figure it out but to beat William you have to use the unlimited ammo cheat. You have to unload the machine gun on him until he is smaller, then use the flamethrower to finish him.

Change Clothes And Get A Gun

Start with Leon or Claire on normal. When you start pick up NOTHING or you will have wasted your time. After you reach the police station go inside and get a good gun and all of the ammo you can find. Go outside where you first come in the police station gates. There is a tunnel if you go strait. Go into it and there will be a zombie that is very hard to kill. Search him after you blast him away. You should find something called a special key. Go to the room where you can make pictures and use it on the lockers that askes for a special key. For Leon you get two outfits. One looks like a S.T.A.R.S. uniform. The other lets you shoot faster with the pistol. For Claire there is only one outfit, but there is a gun that shoots quickly from the waist.

Breaking Camera

This trick is simple. All you have to do is have a shotgun and face the screen where you are facing the character face to face and shoot. If it don't work you need to be farther back. You will see something like bullet holes through the camera. It only works with a shot gun of any kind.

Infinite Gatling Gun

To get this code you must complete the second scenario in under two and 1/2 hours without saving any. You can be either character, Leon or Claire.

Get Both Red Diamonds

message: #1: go where you see the two statues and both are faceing the wall you have to push them out and switch the one on the left to the one on the right but you have to put them against the wall where you see the thing built into the wall like a little ridge. #2: you have to be claire for both of them of of your leon you have to find the lighter then you go to the classroom on the the west side of the building (it's the room where there's lots of seats) then go in the back room and you'll see a painting with a naked guy being hung then you get in front of it get the lighter out and it will burn a little hole where th red diamond will fall out.

Rebecca Chambers Picture

Go to the S.T.A.R.S main office on the second floor adn inspect the desk 50 times.You will be asked to get a roll of film. Say yes and go to the dark room on the first floor.Develope the film and you will get a pic of Rebecca Chambers in a basketball uniform.

Secret Police Station Gate

Make your way to the main police station door...But don't go in it!!! Go directly across from it until you hit a wall and press the A button and the camera view will change and show a gate with 3 zombies on the other side. You can kill the zombies but the gate won't open. You can keep on killing the same zombies by going into the police station then outside and go to the same gate.

Hidden Audio Trick

Start a new game with Leon. Right when the Racoon City street sign exits the screen (not the freeway sign), start the song "Enter Sandman" by Metallica. Watch how the words and the music follow the game exactly! It will blow you away!

Upgrades for Leon and cool gun for Claire

There are many upgrades to leon's guns. the 1st is in the desk right b4 you first enter the library. To get in the desk you will need a small key and you will get the handgun parts. Towards the end, after you get off the tram you should lite the flare gun and a key will appear. pick it up. as you go through the door there will be an intersection, go left. there will be a dead corpse, search him and you will find parts for the shotgun. Then when you are about to enter the lab where the g-virus is made there is a set of lockers. Open the one with the blue lite ontop. here are the magnum parts. When you are Claire you will find a really neat gun in the same spot where you find the shotgun parts for leon. i forget what its called but its really cool.

Unlimited Rocket Launcher

After beating the game with Leon or Claire with a grade of a or b, you must start the game over with leon and go to city hall and it is at the front desk.

Be Leon or Claire

You have to make it to the police station with out picking up anything. Enter the police station and pick up the bullets on the desk then head back outside go down the stairs and there will be a zombie down there. He is hard to kill but when you do search him you will find a key go back in and when you get tothe dark room their will be a locker and you can open it and find a new suit and gun.

Tyrant's Ammuntion

In Leon or Claire's second scenario, the player will constantly run into a giant super zombie called Tyrant. Every time a Tyrant is defeated, the player can steal his ammunition: Shotgun shells or magnum bullets for Leon, and grenade rounds or bow gun bolts for Claire.

Easy Gator Kill

When fighting the gator, and he starts coming towards you, go and inspect the yellow light on the left wall. Then, the light will fall off and the gator will eat it. Now while the light is in its mouth, shoot it and the gator will explode.

Safe Combination

The combination to the safe in front of the chief's desk at the police office, with all the zombies, is 4542. Open it to find shotgun shells and a map.

Final Stage Bonus Room

The final stage has a bonus room that can be entered through a long but easy process. In the first scenario, have Leon or Claire use the red lab key card to enter the room with the giant flying moth. Kill the moth. Find the keyboard attached to the wall, kill the larvae on it and type your name in on the keyboard as "NEMESIS". Register your fingerprint. Go to the first floor of the lab and find the thumbprint reader panel. Use your fingerprint, and the panel should then ask for a second "fingerprint verification." Complete the game, and save the second scenario to any file. In the second scenario from the game you have just played, go to the final stage. Find the room on the first floor of the lab where wriggling plant vines are blocking the vent. The red lab key card should be there. Take it and go to the moth room with the keyboard. Enter your name as "GUEST" and register your thumbprint. Finally, go to the first floor and find the thumbprint reader. It should ask for the "secondary fingerprint verification." Do it, and the bonus room to the right of the panel should be unlocked. Look for a special weapon inside.

Bonus Weapons

Successfully complete either character's first scenario in under two hours and thirty minutes with an A or B ranking for the rocket launcher with infinite ammunition. Successfully complete either character's second scenario in under two hours and thirty minutes hours with an A or B ranking for the gatling gun with infinite ammunition. Successfully complete either character's second scenario in under three hours with an A or B ranking for the machine gun with infinite ammunition. Note: The bonus weapon will appear in the next game after the first chest is opened.

Alternate Uniforms

Start a game on the normal difficulty setting. Then, go to the police station without collecting any items. Quickly move past the zombie that appears in the alley near the police station. Collect the shotgun, then kill the zombie. Take the special key from the zombie's body and go to the dark room to open the lockers with alternate uniforms. Claire has a single alternate uniform, with a quick shooting revolver. Leon has two alternate uniforms, one of which will allow him to shoot with one hand.

Randomizer Mode

Successfully complete both scenarios. Then when starting a new game, a choice for original or randomizer mode will appear after selecting your character and difficulty settings. Randomizer mode places items and objects randomly throughout the game.

Alleyway past the basketball court Go past the zombie-filled basketball court until you find a van. Search the back of the van and to receive hand gun bullets.

Hall with the stairs to the basement Search the mop bucket leaning against the metal shelves behind the stairs. Night Watchman's bunk room With Leon, search the lockers for shotgun shells. Briefing room (with the chalkboard) Using Leon, go to the room where the red jewel was hidden in the painting and search around the middle of the junk pile of art at the far end of the room.

Mixing Herb Power-ups

The herb power-ups can be mixed using the "combine" command for varying, but very beneficial results. This will also save storage space for holding puzzle items. Here is a listing of some herbal combinations and the outcomes: 1 green herb + 1 green herb = 60% health recovery 1 green herb + 1 blue herb = 20% health recovery and poison antidote 1 green herb + 1 red herb = Full health recovery 3 green herbs combined = Full health recovery 1 green herb + 1 red herb + 1 blue herb (in that order) = Cure-all (full health recovery and poison antidote)
