Resident Evil HD Remaster - Chris Speed Run Guide

This is a speed run guide for Chris' story in the Remaster of Resident Evil. The walkthrough was made with the PS3 HD version (released in 2015) but is also compatible with the other HD versions and the GameCube remake.

There are many advantages to completing a speed run. Most notably, unlocking the unlimited Rocket Launcher, which will be awarded for a time under 3 hours on Normal difficulty or higher.

We recommend that you have a good knowledge of the environments featured in the game and the enemies you'll encounter. This guide is not intended to help those on a first run-through and is not spoiler free. We recommend an initial thorough exploration of all maps to enable them to sink into your memory.

In order to create an at-a-glance guide, we have invented a shorthand in which we give areas a nickname of sorts. For example, rather than "East Wing Save Room", we refer to "Barry's Save Room" as we feel that the memory of story events is more likely to jog your memory in a hurry than confusing compass-based directions. This works for us at least!

We do not list every area that you will pass through all the time, as we again assume that you have a decent knowledge of the game's geography and how to get from A to B. However, we have pointed out the most useful shortcuts and recommend that you make full use of them. For example, by simply unlocking the gate after the Crow Puzzle Room you can avoid many unnecessary enemy encounters. This shortcut is also useful if the door near Barry's Save Room breaks, which is more likely on higher difficulties.

Using this walkthrough, which was compiled over 3 play-throughs, including a knife-only run, we have successfully completed a speed run on Hard difficulty in 2 hours 35 minutes. Admittedly, this was with the Unlimited Rocket Launcher, which was unlocked upon completion of a Jill Speed Run. However, our item management in this guide is based on 4 free slots assuming that you are carrying a weapon and its ammo at all times. The Rocket Launcher did save us time, especially on larger enemies like Yawn, Plant 42 and Tyrant, but with 25 minutes spare, there should be plenty of time to kill things without it.

None of our speed runs have been perfect (enemies grabbed us, camera angle/control issues, human error) so it just goes to show that you don't need to panic if you make a small mistake and practice will make perfect in the end. However, do not dawdle (except when carrying the Fuel in the Laboratory) and do not attempt to kill everything. Especially on Normal Mode or higher you won't have time to collect enough ammo, so avoid what you can and use your Defence Items wisely. We have noted in the walkthrough which enemies have to be killed in order to proceed, so you can avoid everything else in theory.

We have not included herb, ammo or Ink Ribbon pick-ups as we will leave it up to your discretion. This guide is strict on item management for maximum efficiency, but there is almost always a spare inventory space for emergencies or an item box close by. An example of an optional, but useful pick-up is the Self Defence Gun in the Residence. It can only fire one shot, but is extremely useful towards the end of the game where your ammo will be scarce. You should also be aware that we have made few save suggestions so again, this is at your discretion whenever you pass through or near a Save Room. On the plus side, a speed run is a perfect time to try for the no-save achievement!

Don't forget that some items need to be examined or combined to create a final product. For example, the Last Book Vol 1 needs to be examined to reveal the Medal Of Eagle. We have written such cases as a flow chart for quick reference.

If you are prompted in-game to discard an item (usually a key), always do so as it will free up valuable space and the game doesn't try to trick you (as we used to think in the PS1 version!). You will not need this item again.

We have provided all codes or solutions to save you the time of back-tracking, but be aware that some puzzles have random solutions and we have indicated the steps required to solve them as quickly as possible.

Instructions in brackets are optional or scenario-specific instructions which may not apply to your run-through.

Please be careful if you want to take a break from the game as pausing does not stop the clock. The best thing to do is stop playing after you save and quit the game completely, reloading when you are ready to continue. We also suggest skipping cutscenes for the same reason - although we're not sure if this contributes to game time, it doesn't hurt, especially as you've probably seen them all a few times by the time you're ready to do a speed run.

As a final note, we suggest that you ask a friend to read the guide to you whilst you play if possible, just as a rally driver relies on a co-driver for navigation. It is very useful to be aware of your next few moves whilst carrying out the task in hand, as standing around working out your next direction would eventually rack up time. This is how we did it, but if this isn't possible for you, just memorise a section at a time until you get a continuous flow. By the end of it, you could do it in your sleep!

We hope that our guide is useful to you. Please enjoy!
