I'm doing a RE marathon these days. After I completed RE 1 (Jill) with minimal setbacks I was confident that I would blast through 2 (Claire A/Leon B) since I remembered it to be easier than 1 for some reason.

However I run out of pistol ammo sometime before I found the valve in that room close to the RPD. Luckily I found the bow gun in the same room but there is still not enough ammo for it.

I must have used about 5 f.aid sprays/mixed herbs and I have just entered the sewers in Claire.

Is that normal for a blind walkthrough* or I just suck? I have a fully loaded pistol with about 15 spare bullets, a fully loaded bowgun with 2 spare arrows and a fully loaded launcher with about 24 grenades from all types right now (sewers entrance)

PS I realised I hadn't found the g.launcher when I left the RPD and I googled for its location. Yeah I'm cheap.

*not blind per se because I had completed all 4 scenarios 3 years ago but I don't remember much. I'm much more familiar with RE 1.

I don't know what you've been shooting at to have nothing left already, since the RPD is overflowing with ammunition. Check everywhere and you'll be swimming in spare rounds.

You definitely suck :V

Did you check corpses for ammo? Almost every cop and USS corpse has ammo.
Some ammo is hidden behind objects, too.

Strange. RE 2 is the winner of hard mode for classic RE games where I am TOO MUCH ammo. I think you attack everything instead of trying to dodge and not checking dead cops for ammo.

For a first time / new player it may not be obvious. But;

  1. there is ammo “hidden” in certain places around the station (checking behind areas “you can’t see” , on corpses etc.)
  2. there are quite a number of enemies which can be easily dodged/not dealt with so you’d be saving ammo that way.

I finished that playthrough long ago, and for some reason I had no ammo problems for the reminder of the game. It was my second playthrough, not my first, so I still don't know why I failed that badly. Maybe it's because I hadn't played classic RE for a long time.

Did you just murder everything in site because that will chew ammo up fast.
