Ouch. Forget the flame thrower, or flame grenades?

On Speedruns I save the Flamethrower for Gs, so I usually just use the Shotgun to stun them, this bastard recovered quicker than expected and grabbed me lmao
I was so mad, that simmering quiet rage where you just sit there

Personally i just save up a few grenades or flashbangs to counter the G's, or use the shotgun, and use fire to down the ivy. If you're using Claire (i know "you" aren't specifically, just in general) A full charge of the spark shot usually drops 'em, and one flame round will finish 'em off.

Yah with Claire I use the Sparkshot for easy drops, but with Leon I save all my flashbangs for Tyrant, since I suck at dodging his insta kill
I had horrible luck this run and got grabbed by three separate Ivys. That never happened to me before and I used up my 2 defense items. It was insane lmao.

Lost entirely, or just screwed your time?

That sucks. With tyrant, you can't dodge it, unfortunately. You either have to stop his charge, or get behind the chunks of concrete, or whatever it is, and he'll hit that instead.

I have a save from the beginning of the sewers, so it's not that bad. Just have to run the gauntlet again. But yeah, it killed me. Worst part of RE2 is that they don't let you pause during death scenes, so you have to watch yourself get owned lol

Yup, going for the S+ rank I ended up fighting G3 plenty of times because of this, now I know to save flash grenades. Normal Grenades help too but they're much slower

Try to bring some magnum ammo for tyrant, if you can. A good shot to the heart with the mag can stop him too.

I prefer to use the shotgun for that purpose because you don't need to be so accurate under pressure.
