This leaves less room for exploration, but that doesn't mean it's non-existent. Look round whenever we have the opportunity it is always useful if not essential, for example there could be secrets and ammunition hidden behind a table in the dim light. Some of the best times to search for resources is in fact at the beginning of the game where we will be left with more freedom of movement.

But what is exploration and completism without a good map in Resident Evil? By opening the menu, we will have everything we need available. Each place we visit will be shown on the map with some very useful information.

Bobbleheads on the other hand are one of the new additions in R3R, very similar to Mr. Racoon. The name of the character depicted is Mr. Charlie and we'll have to find them all to earn 100 points for the Capcom Ambassador program. Nothing really tempting, but fundamental for completeness.

One way is to use the knife to kill the undead and check if they are still alive. Unlike the previous remake, the knife here doesn't break, allowing us to wave it at anything that moves, and keep an eye out for any environmental traps. Throughout the game they are scattered red barrels or other dangers that can be exploited against zombies and the fearsome Nemesis. The most useful are the electrical circuit boxes that thanks to their ability to recharge over time can be used multiple times. This will save you invaluable resources.

Dodge only when necessary and reduce the damage of holds - Resident Evil 3 Remake: tips and tricks to play at your best

Avoiding any unnecessary damage is the fundamental rule of survival horror and in Residen Evil 3 Remake we are provided with two systems to do so. The main one is dodging, already present in the original title, here enhanced and improved. Whenever we succeed in one perfect dodge we will be given a few seconds of slow motion to fire a lethal barrage of shots.

However, if we were to abuse the system, we risk throwing ourselves into the fray and ending up fed to the enemies, moreover a wrong dodge will leave us briefly exposed to potential incoming damage. For more information about it, I refer you to the specific guide on how to dodge and deflect attacks. If after a wrong dodge or a moment of distraction a zombie wants to give us his affectionate kiss, you need to be ready to respond as you can. The only way we have is press X or A repeatedly to reduce the harm that would be inflicted on us.

Some of the most feared and annoying monsters featured in the original title have returned to haunt us. They are certainly no less lethal in this remake, and knowing the best way to kill them will also be our best defense. One of these is theHunter Gamma, with its huge mouth and eerie presence. To kill him, it is advisable to wait for the moment in which he opens his jaws to throw a grenade into him (a bit like you must do against the cacodemon in DOOM Eternal).

Even one can be enough to eliminate them, but care must be taken as its attacks cause massive damage if not instant death. Another sweet creature is the poisonous one Drain Deimos. His quick movements make him a difficult target to hit. It is therefore advisable to use the shotgun thanks to its generous target coverage area. Most importantly, they can die in one shot if well targeted.
