Survival Tips

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has been available for just a week (read Gamereactor’s test ) and many secrets are more terrible than others are to discover in the field of Baker. Given the difficulty of surviving this frightful nightmare (although it is not insurmountable), we propose on this last day of January 10 tricks to allow you to survive the demons sheltered in this sinister property …

Importance of exploration:

As in previous games, resources are the key to RE7. Exploration and curiosity are therefore an obligation if you hope to survive here. Ammunition will probably be the most useful find, as much as care, but you will also need to keep an eye out for ancient coins and other secrets that will open up access to even more resources. Take your time, look (really) everywhere, open all the doors … you never know what you can find!

Choose your targets smartly:

As mentioned above, bullets are quite rare, and when you are lacking, you are often in a delicate situation. Avoid this stress by shooting only when necessary, and if you can, make sure each shot hits the target. Take the time to lock your targets, more importantly, aim your head!

You only have limited space in your inventory, so be sure to pay attention to your needs and store the momentarily superfluous items. Although it is tempting to throw some items in order to pick up more relevant, try to return to the storage chests to make room in your inventory, even if sometimes they seem far away …

Be attentive to the slightest noise:

You will meet as very often in the saga of the quiet moments, even totally silent, so it is worth the blow of listening and constantly stay on the lookout. Many enemies will make noises, gurgling or dragging their carcass on the ground. So many warning signs that will allow you if necessary to better prepare your response, or start to flee …

In the course of your journey you will come across many keys with crows, scorpions, etc. Although you can remember which doors they match, you may have a previous door also attached to this key. Taking the time to retrace your steps and finding these secret doors will often reward you for additional items and script details. Memorize as well as possible the already crossed doors and the keys which are there or not associated …

Importance of cards:

You will regularly come across cards showing the layout of the slots in the game, and you will still have the opportunity (via the middle button on the PS4 controller) to observe them at any time. They show you where you were or not, as well as the location of safes and savepoints. Use them to find where you need to go next. But also just not to get lost on the way …

During your expedition, you will find antique pieces. These will unlock handy items at key moments of the game, which you will certainly enjoy in boss battles. We advise you to put aside all those you find. Psychostimulants can also be used to locate them, as well as other objects. Keep this in mind …

Take your time during clashes against the bosses:

Many fights against different bosses waiting for you, but all can not by showing your muscles or using your gun. You will sometimes need a key object, or a certain tactic, to get rid of these powerful enemies. So take the time to observe their weak points. Almost all can be avoided, at least temporarily by fleeing, so it is always useful to use this technique to avoid being inflicted irreparable damage …

Very often in Resident Evil 7, you will come across traps or enemies waiting for you at the corner of a corridor or behind a door. Even in places where you have already been able to go before. So avoid over-running or you may be surprised and run out of time to react. Walk in step, squat and contemplate the surroundings. Prevention is better than cure, especially when you are in the field of the strange Baker family …

Avoid the Baker family:

This may seem obvious, but the Baker family is far more formidable than you think. When you see them, do not try to provoke them in combat. Find another way, avoid being spotted, and try not to let them touch you because you may regret it …
