Free items

Go to the internal PS4 settings. Choose “Settings” — “Application Saves Data Management” — “Saved Data” in System Storage and copy the save file for Resident Evil 3 Remake that says “system saved data” to either your Online Storage or USB, then start up the game. Go to “Bonuses”, then “Shop”, and buy any item(s) from the store that you can afford. Then, load your save. The item will appear in your storage box. Save and quit the game. Go to “Settings” — “Application Saves Data Management” — “Saved Data” in Online Storage/USB for Resident Evil 3 Remake, and overwrite the system saved data in the System Storage with the data you either saved online or on the USB. Repeat this process as many times as desired. Note: The costumes do not work with this trick, as it is saved to your system save data file. You cannot stack more than two coins/pouches. If you want both of an item, you have to do both options as they are unique. They do not need to be done at the same time, but selecting half twice will not give you two. The Hip Pouches do not appear in the storage box — they appear next to it.

Inferno mode

Successfully complete the game on the Nightmare difficulty to unlock the Inferno difficulty.

Nightmare mode

Successfully complete the game on the Hardcore difficulty to unlock the Nightmare difficulty.

Easy points

To get lots of points to purchase items from the in-game shop, first complete the game. Then, complete the “Records” by farming weapon kills from reloading the last save to get lots of points.

Farming zombies

Reach the “Defend Jill” section of Carlos’ segments. Once you have cleared out the room and Tyrell wants you to use the detonator, do not use it. Waves of zombies will continue to spawn three or so at a time and crawl over the pallets. Combine this with an infinite ammo weapon/assault medallions to easily complete the zombie killing records. However, the longer you farm them, the more likely they are to turn into Nemesis Head zombies when they make it over the barrier. If the zombies stop spawning, you can quit and reload your autosave to start back at the last phase of the “Defend Jill” encounter.

All weapon locations

Search the indicated locations to find all weapons in Resident Evil 3 Remake (2020). There are four collectable weapons and six purchasable weapons. The weapons are missable. If you progress too far, you will not be able to go back. Some weapons are automatically placed in your inventory and have no location (starting pistol for Jill, and starting pistol and assault rifle for Carlos).

M3 Shotgun: It is found on a chained gun rack in the Subway Office. The [Bolt Cutters] that are required to open the gun rack are found in the Garage Safe Room, right after putting out the fire in the Toy Uncle Alley.

MGL Grenade Launcher: It is found on the table in the Sewers Office in the southern Sewers Save Room. When you reach the fork in the sewers path, go left to find it.

G18 Handgun (Burst Model): It is found in the Makeshift Sickroom of the Hospital after switching back to Jill. It is on the counter to the left of the doors.

.44 AE Lightning Hawk (MAG): In the Hospital Courtyard, go up to the second floor with Jill, and climb through the barricade near the Nurse’s Station. Drop down to find the magnum in a case.

All shop unlockables

Points are awarded for completing specific tasks in the game. The following is a list of all the bonuses that can be unlocked, and the points they cost.

Vaccine Equipment Puzzle: In [NEST 2], you need to acquire the [Vaccine Base] to generate a cure for the T-Virus outbreak in Raccoon City.

Inferno is the highest difficulty.
