Resident Evil 2 walkthrough: A guide to surviving Leon's and Claire's campaigns

A guide to completing Leon's and Claire's campaigns with our Resident Evil 2 walkthrough.

Resident Evil 2 is a remake of the 1998 classic - reimagined with a over-the-shoulder perspective and some new surprises.

Fear not, though, as this is the same Police Station and Raccoon City you remember - it's dense, dangerous easy to get lost in, and full of tough puzzles.

Our Resident Evil 2 walkthrough explains how to complete Leon's campaign from start to finish, as well as the start of Claire's - after all, there is some crossover between the two storylines.

The following explains how to complete the game as Leon, but note that many of these areas apply the exact same for Claire's campaign - for example, up to the first G Tyrant encounter, apart from one weapon, the route and encounters are exactly the same.
