Resident Evil 2 has a few tricky trophies to watch out for



Aside from being an all-around great series, one reason Resident Evil has been so enduring is its replayability. Your first run is the warmup, then comes the real fun. The trophies for Resident Evil 2 (2019) are only going to help in that regard, and I’m hoping to revisit the remake throughout the year.

The road to platinum will include more than a few detours and even some potholes, as evidenced by the complete Resident Evil 2 trophy list. We’ll need to survive the terrors of Raccoon City with Leon and Claire, do it again on Hardcore mode, and even earn S ranks for the dynamic duo.

Then there’s weird stuff. The challenges that require a deeper understanding of the game, efficiency, and good old-fashioned planning. Can I clear Resident Evil 2 without taking more than 14,000 steps? I don’t know! But I’m curious to see what that deceptively straightforward pedometer trophy entails.
