Hello and welcome to my guide on this cool game. It is a 
Dreamcast remake and the first resident evil game I ever 
played. I personally like the game even though some 
people think it is boring. I hear lots of complaints 
about how it doesn’t have any action in it because you 
run out of ammo to quick, but these people do not see 
that the game is all about preserving your ammo. I think 
that this is good as it is realistic, in real life people 
would not have infinite ammo. Preserving your ammo and 
health adds to the scare. There are also some nice FMV 
cut scenes in here. But, as in any resident Evil game, 
there are many people stuck on the bosses. WARNING: I 
recommend you have a lot of free space on your memory 
card as you will want to be making a lot of save files, I 
made the mistake of getting to the Tyrant Boss with 
hardly any Ammo left. This is annoying if you are on your 
first play through, as it would probably have taken you 
some time to get that far. Anyway enjoy my guide and good 
luck with the game; it can be hard at times. Now for what 
this guide is all about, the bosses and enemies. Loads of 
people have trouble on the bosses so I thought I would 
give you a detailed guide as well as telling you the 
enemies in the process.

I don’t want to bore you with all this but please don’t 
put this on any site, it is only supposed to be on 
GameFaqs/Gamespot. If you put it on your own site make 
sure you don’t swap the name Tommyboyrules with your own 
account name or whatever because that is plagiarising. 



There are a few bosses in this game, less bosses than 
resident Evil 4 but they are probably a lot harder. Lets 
get straight into this:


You face this tyrant on a plane; there are many ways to 
do this. I will tell you the easy way (which is sort of 
cheating but good for people who do not have enough 
grenade launcher ammo to spare or explosive darts) and 
also the normal way.

About 10 explosive bow gun arrows,
Normal bow gun arrows (50-80)

30-40 explosive bow gun arrows,
4 BOW gas rounds (for grenade launcher),
2-4 healing items
50 arrows

People who have the MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS should use this 
way to prevent death. Start of by firing all your 
explosive arrows into it. Then run to a corner of the 
room, it is hard to explain, but if you lure it to the 
corner you are standing in, then run to the opposite side 
of the room before it hits you, then you will not take a 
hit! NOTE: It is good to experiment until you find out 
how close you have to be before it can strike you. Put 
lots of arrows into him then run for the switch and hope 
that you have fired enough into him. If you think you 
have done enough, push the switch, if not, do a few more 
rounds. Remember to only push the switch when you are 
ready, if it does not work than you will have to damage 
him all over again. The way to dodge him is to keep 
Claire PRESSED to the Wall and to make sure the Tyrant is 
not too near or the YOU DIED screen will show up faster 
than you think. 


Use those BOW gas rounds and all the explosive rounds, 
and then start to fire your arrows. When he gets near you 
he will hit you and you will be on the floor, if you 
haven’t moved from the starting point, after you get up 
run to the back of the plane. Then start firing the rest 
of the arrows and heal. Then try and run around it and 
get to the switch, if you get hit just heal or keep 
moving towards the switch.

MINIMUM REQUIRMENTS: Nothing you just need to pick up the 
RECOMMENED: At least one healing item, or anti poison 

This is one boss that you must not mess up on. You have 
around seven shots if my memory serves me right. Aim for 
the heart, take your time, the black gas that it fires 
does not damage you that much. If you cant get a clear 
shot, then run to the other end of the arena. Whatever 
you do don’t stay in one place, if it gets too close it 
can actually knock you right off of the edge meaning 
instant death.

Handgun plus 30 shots (maybe more maybe less depends how 
good you are at aiming,)


Use the bowgun when it pops up, it takes just a few shots 
with explosive arrows to kill it. Even less with the 
grenade launcher but it is slow, so I recommend the 
bowgun. The Assault rifle you should save for killing 
groups of zombies. The trick here is to keep moving, as 
it pops up from out of the ground and takes a chunk out 
of your health. This Boss isn’t too dangerous really, its 
nothing compared to the Tyrant anyway. NOTE: You do not 
actually have to fight the Boss but seeing as it 
swallowed Rodrigo you will need to kill it in order to 
get the lighter from his dead body, then you can go and 
light the torch with it in the room that Chris started 
the game in to get the Submachine Guns. 



I would say that this Boss is the hardest optional Boss 
in the game. You do not have to face it all you have to 
do is run to the middle of the pool and get the Eagle 
Plate. The only problem is this monster has an electric 
attack. So, what does electricity travel through? Yes, 
you guessed it, water, and what are you standing in? 
Water! So if you try it this way, you are going to get 
shocked at least twice. If you decide to face it, then 
look below:


Handgun or a Shotgun (with about 10-20 shells or 30-40 


Shotgun with 25 shells,
Bowgun with some arrows

In this battle, no matter if you have the minimum 
requirements or the recommended, should not be rushed 
through. Because you do not even get hit in the battle if 
you stay out of the water, I have not recommended any 
healing items. So, why have I given it a Medium/Hard 
then? It is simple: This boss has caused me the most 
deaths, not by hitting me, but by wasting ALL my ammo. I 
recommend you make a backup save before this battle, as 
the Antarctica section as Chris is Impossible to do 
without at least some ammo. The reason it wastes your 
ammo is that it is very hard to hit as it swims fast. Get 
out a shotgun and run around the outside of the pool and 
chase it. For example: If it goes to the North end of the 
room then run around the side of the pool to the North. 
Basically go whatever direction it goes without going 
into the pool. The reason for this is that the shotgun 
does more damage at close range, and this boss takes a 
few breaks once and a while. When it takes a rest and 
stops swimming, Fire about 2 shotgun rounds into it. Then 
follow it some more and repeat the process. Take your 
time; make sure you hit it with every shot. If you are 
running that low on ammo, then you can use explosive 
arrows or the grenade launcher, however to my knowledge, 
fire type weapons/ explosive weapons do not work 
efficiently in water (how realistic huh?).



Once again, another optional boss, if you don’t want to 
waste your ammo, just go into the middle of the Ice and 
take the item you need, after that get out of there. You 
probably wont even take a hit. You do not get special 
item or whatever for killing this spider, so there isn’t 
much point. But if you want to kill it for fun, then look 

Any weapon you want, preferably the grenade launcher or 
the explosive arrows.
A healing item (just in case you are unlucky enough to 
get hit.

Magnum with a full clip (will probably take less.)

If you have the magnum then just fire away at it when you 
climb down on the Ice and it will be dead in less than 10 
seconds. If you do not have the magnum or do not want to 
waste any of the precious rounds then just use the 
grenade launcher and fire a grenade then run. It will 
probably find it hard to catch you, as it is slow. When 
there is enough distance, fire another. It should go down 
fast enough.


DIFFIULTY: Impossible

You cannot kill this boss; it has some kind of sharp 
spear type weapon. You had better run. I have seen a 
person on YouTube use ALL of his ammo on it and it still 
would not die. All you can do is run, take a few hits in 
the process, and then enjoy the scene. I think that this 
battle should have been like resident evil 4, and you 
should have been able to tap X and run, then press the on 
screen buttons to dodge his swings. Slightly 
disappointing really, as all you have to do is pull off a 
180 degree turn and use healing items while running.

Two healing items that heal you to full health,
The ability to run the way you came :).

BOSS 7: ALEXIA FORM 1 (Mansion Battle)


You are in the mansion, and are trapped in there with the 
first form of Alexia. You face this 1st form twice in the 
game, but this is the harder of the two as the second 
time round she only takes one hit with any bullet. Use 
the magnum if you have it, or any other high powered gun, 
you are going to want to take this woman out fast as she 
has a dangerous one hit KO move if she gets close to you. 
If you are further away she uses fire on you. Just keep 
running around to avoid the fire and then let rip if you 
feel you are in the right position. Don’t reload too near 
to her. You don’t need any requirements only a high power 
weapon and some ammo.



Alexia is in three forms, the first easy, the second 
hard, and the third annoying.

A Magnum with 5 bullets AND either a grenade launcher 
with 10 grenades, or a shotgun with a full clip plus 10 
extra rounds, the Submachine guns work as well if you 
have 50-60%. One full healing item, a handgun with one 

A magnum with a full clip and also a high-powered weapon 
with a full clip, plus a few extra shots. 3-4 full 
healing items, a handgun with one bullet.

The first form only takes one shot to kill, but do it 
quickly before Alexia kills Claire. Use the handgun and 
the one bullet to kill her. In the second form, you just 
need to run around and shoot at her, firstly with the 
magnum, secondly with the weapon of your choice. Heal 
when necessary and try to dodge the tentacles. I don’t 
think you can dodge the small creatures that attack you. 
After you damage her enough she goes into the final form. 
You should have plenty of time to beat her, so grab the 
linear launcher then keep running around to dodge her 
fire. As soon as she finishes her fire attack, press R1 
to go into the aiming mode and try to hit her. It is hard 
to do it first time, and she always flies to one side, 
but keep on trying and you will eventually do it. Just 
wait for her to finish using the fire then shoot away 
with the mega powerful and infinite ammo Linear Launcher. 
It only takes one shot. I actually think you can kill it 
with normal weapons, as you definitely can in the Battle 
game. But I do not recommend it as it might not work and 
takes a lot of ammo. 

I hope my guide proves useful to you; it took me a long 
time. Good luck with the battle game! Read on for the 
Enemy list.



Zombies are the normal enemies you face in the game, at 
first they are slow and all they can do is grab you and 
try to bite you. However, later on these enemies spit 
acid at you and can make a sprint towards you at a few 
occasions. When you can you should avoid killing them and 
try running around them as the are slow, however if you 
do need to kill them or are trapped then keep firing 
until they fall on the floor, then you can use your knife 
or aim down. When they die completely, blood will spread 
over the floor. If they grab you just keep mashing 
buttons to get them off really fast, if you are fast 
enough they might not even get to bite you at all. Any 
gun will do but do not waste your powerful guns on them.


The first time you face one of these, you have to kill it 
with a knife, and this is the hardest Bandersnatch you 
will ever face in the game. These guys are pretty 
dangerous in groups, but if you keep moving and 
zigzagging then you can avoid the fist that they stretch 
out to you. NOTE: These are long-range creatures that 
have elastic like arms that grab onto you. I would not 
recommend using a handgun on them, as they will take to 
long to kill and by that time would probably have already 
damaged you significantly. Use a powerful weapon on 
groups and try to take on one at a time.


These enemies are really dangerous if you are on low 
health, and if there is two after you get hit you better 
use a healing item instantly. These creatures are agile 
and can take chunks out of your health in one quick 
swipe. If you use the shotgun and aim down then you 
should be able to knock it over, after that don’t stop 
shooting at it while it’s down or it will get up and do a 
jumping swipe. If you are fast enough you can aim up and 
shot them in mid air but you are safer killing them on 
the floor. In my opinion these are the second hardest 
enemies in the game, poison hunters being the worst.


The dogs are fast but can easily be killed by just aiming 
down. YOU will likely have the handgun when you face them 
but once they are on the floor they are dead. As long as 
you are not limping on Caution or Danger status then you 
can strangely outrun most of the dogs in this game. They 
have to moves like all enemies, a strike and a grapple. 
The strike they just jump and bite you, whereas the 
grapple they bite onto your arm and will need to be 
shaken off. When you get them off, the dog will be 
floored, leaving you to finish it off.


These Spiders can climb on the wall, and spit acid from 
the wall, ceiling or ground. They do not really take that 
many hits to kill and you probably have some powerful 
guns at this stage anyway. I have ran around every spider 
in this game not even coming close to a hit, so you don’t 
really have to bother with them, unless you think they 
are going to cause you trouble. Beware that they can 
poison you so don’t hang around near them for too long.


These are in the Antarctica section, they are the first 
enemies to poison you, as they lay a poisonous egg on 
your back when they grab onto you. Try to just run, as 
you will probably end up getting poisoned. They are not 
really that fast; so don’t waste your ammo as you can 
just run.


These annoying things come out of walls but there are 
only about 4 in the game. Just shoot them with anything 
you feel like and when they disappear inside the wall you 
know they are dead. Not really much of a threat.


They take one hit to kill but why waste the ammo when all 
you need to do is Equip your lighter to scare them off? 
They barely damage you anyway so do not even bother with 

Chris encounters these tiny things later on in the game, 
just run through them, its totally random whether you get 
bitten or not but they do not hurt too bad. Think of them 
like the mini Spiders you have to step on in Devil May 
Cry, except they nip you.


You only encounter these things once and you should not 
hang around too kill them, as you do not have long before 
the timer hits zero and you die. Try to run around them 
and if they block your way then you should pop a cap into 
them. They can electrocute you but are not as bad as the 
actual Matured one.


These are the most dangerous enemies, they are as fast as 
the Hunters but this time they poison you, I would just 
run if there is more than one and just hope that if you 
get hit you wont get poisoned. I think it is like a 50/50 
chance. Also there jumping slash does like double the 
damage the hunters one does. You might want to kill these 
fast. They are dangerous but fortunately there are not as 
many of these as the normal Hunters. Take them out with 
your most powerful weapon; even waste magnum rounds on 
them because you really don’t want one of these to start 
hitting you. 

This ends my guide, I hope you all enjoyed it.
