[FINAL REVISION]

March 24th, 2013:    Revised the guide for the HD ports of the game. It's the
                     same guide as before, only minor changes were required.

November 20th, 2012: Added the names of the areas where the HANDPRINTS are at
                     as read in the in-game map. Corrected some minor errors.
                     It seems the prints change spots and added that in.

September 9th, 2012: Aside from potential typos, this version is FINAL. Took
                     me quite a few hours to finish. Had to make sure all of
                     the info was accurate. Send me an e-mail if you see any
                     errors.

III.)                           INTRODUCTION
=============================================================================
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There are 30 handprints in Resident Evil: Revelations. You can only find them
in Story Mode (campaign mode). They are invisible and can only be detected if
you use the GENESIS scanner on them.

Finding 1, 15, or 30 of the Secret Handprints will unlock special weapons and
items (like a green herb).

SECRET SIGN MISSION 1: Scan 1 hidden Hand print - Unlocks 1 Green Herb.

SECRET SIGN MISSION 2: Scan 15 hidden Hand prints - Unlocks the PSG1 rifle.

SECRET SIGN MISSION 3: Scan 30 hidden Hand prints - Unlocks the G18 handgun.

The real challenge though, is finding them.

IV.)                   30 SECRET SIGNS - HANDPRINT GUIDE
=============================================================================
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
NOTE: Most of these handprints can be scanned in any order. If you didn't get
      a chance to scan them in one scenario or episode, you may be able to do
      so in the following scenarios/episodes. The handprints below are listed
      in the order you can usually scan them in a normal play-through.

IMPORTANT: If you die, restart an episode or scenario just after scanning one
      of the handprints, you do NOT have to scan it again. The game will mark
      and register the handprint the 1st time you scan it. So do not worry if
      you return to the game (after dying or restart) and you cannot find the
      handprint once again. Please keep that in mind.

NOTE: I was told by players of the 3DS version that some handprints will move
      or change locations. I was able to verify that at least one does appear
      at a different spot (the handprint at the VENDING MACHINES). I replayed
      the game on the HD ports and didn't notice any of that happening there.
      However in case it does happen to some players, this guide will provide
      them with hints as to where to look for the "moving" Handprints. Yet it
      should also be noted that the Handprints will generally not move at all
      from where they are usually found. So there is no need to panic. ;)


      Alrighty then... let the handprint hunt begin!
