=============================
I. Introduction
=============================
Horror is back with a brand new wrap! Many out there have by now at least 
played Resident evil, especially #5 or operation raccoon city, but by then, No
body ever remembers where it all began.
Back in the day, 1998, Resident Evil hit the shelves to introduce the newest
genre of video gaming in the history of all video games.
Without that step, Silent hill or any other Survival Horror games would not be
possible. Resident Evil Defined the genre that most people nowadays still 
enjoy.

I must say as a child i stumbled upon this game Accidentally, at a game rental
shop, and boy do I remember how i felt when i saw my first ever zombie!
Back then, I knew nothing of RE or Zombies for that matter, and graphics for 
the PSX back then were the most "Realistic" thing we had and i was Six at the
time, So fleeing from the room with Urine on the front of me and crying was 
just the "Normal" routine of a bad video game rental.

Nowadays, RE is Unheard of. But those who are still playing it want to 
Know about some of the monsters and weapons in the game so lets get
Down to buisness with this Guide, and tell you a little about the collectively
cool Critters, Gizmos and what not you come across whilst playing RE.

=====================
II. WEAPONS                   I
=====================

Knife
++++++++
Slow to the draw, Medium speed in action and range is just too darn close.
Alot of guides automatically reccomend you launch it into the first Item box 
that you come across but i Actually reccomend carrying it as a main weapon
for those who both mastered the controls as well as the game.

Its relatively slow during attack, especially when considered alongside the
Beretta. But, one thing will ring true to the end, The Knife never runs out
of bullets, making it more useful than once thought. It is reccomended to 
do alot of running when carrying it as your main weapon as it is not very
reliable when you get cornered. While inflicting little damage and no 
knockback power, it seems to be ineffective against anything more than
crows. 
So fighting when it is Unnecessary is Pointless and sure to get you Killed.

Zombie- 3 to 4 stabs to down one, 6-10 stabs to kill.
Crow-1stab to kill.
Cerberus(Zombie Dog)- 1stab to down, 5-10 to kill.
Hunter- 6-15 stabs to kill. Pointless to exchange blows with it as it will
Kill you. It doesnt seem to notice your stabbing it, so better to run from
it.
Chimera- N/A
Spider-5-12 stabs to kill.

Beretta
++++++++++++
Your main sidearm during the first half of the Game. Later on it becomes
Unreliable and useless as the enemies turn to mainly Hunters and Cerberus.
Its main use is to kill zombies and Cereberus as well as crows. Ammo is 
plentiful for it, but like i said its not as protective after the first part 
of the game. Still, its more reliable than the Knife.

Shotgun
+++++++++++++
The Ultimate self defense weapon for Close-mid Ranges. Aiming up when a 
Zombie is close will send it to the Permanent afterlife. Its power is second
to none and it will kill any enemy other than bosses in less than 8 shots.
zombies will die in less than 4 and hunters less than 5. Super powerful,
but the rate of fire is decreased due to its Recoil. Ammo is rarer than the 
standard 9mm Clip, but they become more frequent later in the game.

Bazooka
+++++++++++
Only Jill gets this weapon, its recovered beside forest in 2F mansion.
its ammo is Very rare during the first half of the game. Ammo varies, from
Explosive rounds, Flame Rounds and Acid Rounds. All three kills a hunter in
less than 3 shots. Acid kills them in one shot. Its very effective against 
hunters, and Chimeras, but range is Mid way and shouldnt be used on lesser
weaker enemies. Ammo becomes More frequent but is even rarer than the 
shotgun's ammo.

Colt Python
++++++++++++
Kills everything in one shot and even bosses in less than 20 shots.
Ammo is Unheard of and almost relatively scarce. Best for use against
Hunters, Chimeras and save most ammo for the bosses. 
Both Chris and Jill get this Weapon. Its Design makes it look like a 
357. Magnum.

Rocket Launcher
+++++++++++++++
Only encounter it at the end of the game. Kills every Single enemy
including bosses in one shot. Modeled after an old time weapon.
Some have unlocked it by completing the game under 2 hours, with an A rank.

=======================
III. Monsters
=======================

Zombies- The undead Human occupants of the once scientific Mansion. Their
undead moans and shuffling immediately gives away their prescence, though they
only Make noise if they go on the attack mode, so if they see you, Either
prepare for a fight, or run like hades. Most common enemy in the game.

Cerberus- The Experemental dobermans of the scientists in the underground
lab. Its impossible to knife it effectively without proper timing as it will
leap on you to attack, better to run from these beasts, the clicking of their
claws and the occasional growl gives them away immediately. Encountered
more frequently later on in the game, shortly after the beginning.

Hunter- Giant mutated frogs, these things are deadly. Large clumping
noise gives you away to their presence, Run in a zig zag sweeping pattern
cuz if they connect the flying leap, your decapitated. They are
seen later on in the game, as they replace the zombies presence.

Crows- Not common in the game, only seen every now and then. 
Youll hear their Caws when they are in the same room with you.
They inflict very very little damage,  so there is no worries. Most attacks
from them are avoidable as long as you use your knife to kill them
and dont run towards them they will stay where they are. Gunfire
will cause them to swarm you.

Spiders- Giant T-virus infected Terantulas. They will poison you causing you
the trouble of finding a blue herb. They will kill you and only encountered
three times in the game. Youll here several muffled thuds in succession
that will alert you of their presence.

Neptune- Sharks that are in the basement, Cannot be killed to my knoweledge
without Draining the water first, Then, 1 knife stab is all it takes as they 
Flop helplessly on the ground.

Snakes- Encountered twice underground and once in the courtyard.
Will poison you but inflict little damage biting. They tend to come
from nowhere.

Yawn- Giant snake that you have to kill, he's unavoidable and is a difficult
boss if you dont know how to run and gun. I killed it with nothing but a 
knife and as i remember, it was 40+ hits to kill it. Good luck
Knife onlies!

Chimera- Monkey like leech covered purple creepy apes that crawl on the 
ceiling. They make a tapping noise and a funny hiss to alert you
of their presence. they inflict serious damage so stay alert.
Only encountered in the Lab.

======================================
IV. Healing items
======================================

There are numerous healing items in resident evil, The most common being
the Green herb. The most rare, of course, the First aid spray. By combining
herbs, You can heal yourself more effectively and it allows you to conserve
Healing items.

Greenherb- Heals 25HP on its own. Heals wounds.

Red Herb- Doesnt do anything healing wise on its own. By combining it with
green herb, it doubles the healing power.

Blue Herb- Cures poison, Becomes rather frequent later in the game when
more poisonous enemies are introduced.

First Aid spray- Heals your character completely. Doesnt cure poison.

=======================================
V. FAQ
=======================================

Can you beat Re knife only?

Yes you can, many people have. All it takes is practice, timing, and
Knoweledge of the enemy.



Herb combinations 
----------------------------------------
G+R+B= Heals you completely. Cures poison.
G+R= Heals you halfway
R+B= Provides no healing, Cures poison.
G+B= Heals minor wounds, Cures poison.
G+G+G= Max restores health.

Get Creative! theres not many more combinations but conserving heath items is
Your key  to surviving RE. Dont use first aid sprays or blue herbs when
your minorly wounded or not poisoned. Combine red and green herbs
rather than 2 green ones as the green herbs become scarce
during Mid game.
