Resident Evil 2 – Achievement Guide

Welcome to the Resident Evil Achievement Guide!

Almost all of the achievements are self-explanatory, we will add tips and tricks to unlock them and also videos of the locations of the collectibles. The Game has two protagonists each one with his own campaign wich then can be followed up with the other. So You have sort of Leon A, Claire B and Claire A, Leon B campaign.

You have the speedrun related achievements so I would say you have to beat the game around 2 times to get everything if you’re really good.
