Resident Evil 3 Remake Weapon Parts Guide: How to Get Each Upgrade



Resident Evil 3 Remake lets you know from the start that you are in a relentless fight against the undead and the unstoppable bio-weapon of Umbrella Corporation, Nemesis. It will be difficult to survive in Raccoon City, but in the traditional way of survival horror, you will be able to find an assortment of items and weapons to help even the odds. However, some are more difficult to locate than others, and they can make all the difference in surviving your encounters with the deadly bio-weapon.

Just like in the remake of Resident Evil 2, you can find special upgrades for Jill and Carlos’ weapons. With that in mind, GameSpot has developed a quick guide that details how to find all of the weapon parts available in Resident Evil 3.

Jill’s G19 handgun

Pistol point sight: This upgrade can be located in the art storage room across from the Kite Bros metro office in downtown. Inside the storage room is a locked safe, and next to it is a note from the deceased owner. This note will give you a hint on how to unlock the safe, which will take you to the nearby Drugstore, which is next to the Kite Bros office. At the back of the store is an Aqua Cure poster, which has three circled numbers – this is the combination key for the safe. Return to the art storage room and unlock the safe to get the Punch Point Viewfinder, which will increase the accuracy of the G19. | For convenience, if you want to access the safe, the combination is left 9, right 1, left 8.

Extended magazine and moderator of handguns: These two upgrades are removed from Nemesis. Once it has suffered enough damage, it will drop an Umbrella storage case, which houses ammo and upgrades. The tricky part about this is that the drops are related to the current point in history, so if you wait too long to delete it, you will miss some improvements. Additionally, the drops are only available during the Downtown section of the game, so they can be easy to miss.

There are two opportunities to do so: the first is during the chase immediately after the power plant (which will give you the extended magazine), and the second is when Nemesis chases Jill after infecting zombies with the parasite, just at the outside the Donut Boutique (which will leave the moderator). The best way to get rid of Nemesis is the various explosive barrels scattered around. Once it’s close enough, shoot the barrel to lower it easily. Remember, these are the only two opportunities to get the upgrades, so if you miss one or both and progress through the story, you won’t be able to get them at all.

Tactical stock: This upgrade is the second reward you can get from the Kite Bros. monument. at the entrance to the metro station. Scattered in the city center, three different fancy boxes house red, green and blue jewelry. To find the three, you’ll need hooks and bolt cutters. The first is located in the back room of the donut shop, while the other two are located in the chained grocery store (open with bolt cutters) and the locked toy store (open with Lockpick). Once you have all the jewelry, insert it into the metro statue to get a grenade, upgrade the shotgun and a hip pouch. This upgrade will increase the overall accuracy of the shotgun.

Semi-automatic barrel: After the first boss fight with Nemesis, you will reach the Kendo Gun Shop. Check the shelves near the front door for ammo, green grass and upgrade, which will increase the rate of fire of the shotgun.

Hull support: Shortly after the hospital, you will enter the underground storage. This area is a huge puzzle filled with enemies, as well as hidden objects scattered around. This upgrade is located at the back of the warehouse near a staircase, after battling zombie dogs and a lonely zombie. At ground level, near the stairs, is a switch that will lower one of the elevators, opening a dark corner that contains a chest containing the hull support. This upgrade will increase the reload speed of the shotgun.

Jill’s Lightning Hawk

Extended magazine: Shortly after finding the three fuses to activate the elevator in the underground storage, you will enter the zone control center. Before examining the row of computers, check behind it, near the large window, for a case containing the only upgrade from the Lighting Hawk. The extended barrel will decrease the recoil of the pistol while also increasing its attack power.

p dir = “ltr”>AR range: Shortly after arriving at R.P.D. Station, you will meet a zombified Brad Vickers. Although you can ignore it, removing it will earn you the S.T.A.R.S. ID, which will open locked safes throughout the station. Carlos’s first weapons upgrade case is in the West office. To get there, you will have to cross the reception in the direction of the north corridor. When you arrive in the area full of zombies, you will find doors leading to the R.P.D. Armory and west office. Inside the office is a S.T.A.R.S. chest. Use the ID card you got from Brad to open it and get the AR Scope, increasing the accuracy of the rifle.

Tactical grip: This upgrade is located in the Courtyard of Spencer Memorial Hospital. Arriving on the second floor, you will find broken windows that allow you to jump into the courtyard, which has a few extra items to pick up. The broken window near the door to the nurse’s station leads to an area with green grass and a chest with the tactical handle. This will decrease the recoil of the weapon.

Double magazines: Carlos’s latest upgrade is in the nurse’s safe. To access the safe, you will need to obtain the combined key to a note in the surgery room on the first floor. To access it, you will need the hospital ID from the second floor staff room. Read the note found in the operating room to get the combination for the safe, which will unlock access to double magazines. This upgrade doubles the amount of rifle ammunition in a single clip from 32 to 64. | For convenience, if you want to access the safe, the combination is left 9, right 3.
