In this guide on Resident Evil 3 Remake we will see how to dodge enemy attacks and how to deflect them, with both of our protagonists

The brand new Remake of Resident Evil 3 is very similar in gameplay to that of Resident Evil 2 released last year, except for a very important addition also present in the original game: the dodge. Dodging, however, is as important as it is difficult, requiring extremely precise timing, which is why we bring you this guide. So let's see how to dodge and how to best deflect enemy attacks with our protagonists: Jill and Carlos in Resident Evil 3 Remake.

The importance of dodging

Especially in the higher difficulties, where attacks do more damage and you have fewer resources, knowing how to dodge in Resident Evil 3 Remake is absolutely fundamental. In any difficulty, however, it is certainly worth learning the timing of dodging, even if they change a lot between the various enemies. 

Our advice is to train with the zombies first lowest level, in order to make it easier then to learn the timing of stronger bosses and enemies. Also, while with Jill we will actually have a dodge, the move made by Carlos will be more one deflection (or parry), so we will see the best strategy for both protagonists.

Best technique for Jill - Resident Evil 3 Remake: how to dodge

Jill is the character that we will control most of the time in Resident Evil 3 Remake, and it will therefore be absolutely essential to learn how to dodge with her. Jill allows us to dodge, avoiding taking damage, and then to counterattack immediately shooting at the enemy. The damage done with a counterattack will be much more powerful, and it will also happen more often to blow up the head of the zombies.

To dodge with Jill, you have to press R1 / RB at thelast moment before taking the attack (this will obviously be the hardest part), while tilting the left stick in a direction away from the enemy. At this point if the dodge is successful you will hear a sound, and immediately pressing L2 / LT you will have a very small window of time to fire. The automatic aim will automatically aim for the head, and as already written you will do much more damage than with a normal attack.

Best technique for Carlos - Resident Evil 3 Remake: how to dodge

In some section of the game we will control Carlos, and while most of the controls remain the same, there is a huge difference in dodging. In fact, Carlos even if he moves much less, deflects enemy attacks, destroying his guard and opening a window to attack. 

Fortunately, the way of performing the deflection is however very similar to that of Jill's dodge: press R1 / L1 at the last moment before being hit, always tilting the left stick towards a direction away from the enemy. If the deflection is successful Carlos will give a fist to the enemy by pushing it back, and here we will have time to press L2 / LT and shoot.

A matter of practice

As difficult as they may be, dodging and deflecting in Resident Evil 3 Remake are a great way not only to avoid taking damage, but also to eliminate enemies. much faster. To increase the dodge time windows a bit, you can also purchase and inventory the STARS Survival Manual.
