Resident Evil 3 Cheats

  • Unlimited ammo weapons

    Before starting a regular game, start Mercenaries once. No matter whom you will choose and how long you will last,
    providing you will earn at least one $. Now, quit the game and edit the file bio3.ini in its directory. You should see
    a following text at the end of the file:

    [Data]
    Data00=

    After this goes a 20 characters long digit and letter seqence. Now, replace everything with the following:

    [Data]
    Data00=8e82aac62274044c57ab
    Data01=908aabc66274a606b4b5
    Data02=bc88abc66274c6924499
    Data03=e48eabc66274f7ab54c1

    If you did everything correctly, you should now have Assault Rifle, Gatling and Rocket Launcher with unlimited ammo in
    the Resident Evil game (plus additional $4150 on the Mercenaries account in the case you wanted to try and compete for
    the one last bonus).

  • Inf Ammo All Weapons

    There are two ways to get it as far as I know. 1. beat the game on hard to get the mercenary game, then complete that enough times to make enough money (your a mercenary, think about it) to buy it
    2. I'm not sure you have to, but I beat the game once through before I did this, when you are at the clock tower, just after Jill is revived from the virus, figth Nemisis and kill him. He should drop an item. It should be an Inf Ammo Case. Finish the game and load the save. You should have infinite ammo. I haven't seen if it worked yet, but try it

Zombies eating people's flesh and the screams of my teammates dying. No, the wounds in my heart are not healed yet...

    Chris has been causing a lot of trouble recently. What's with him? He seldom talks to the other police members and is constantly irritated. The other day, he punched Elran of the Boy's Crime department just for accidentally splashing Chris's face with coffee. I immediately stopped Chris, but when he saw me he just gave me a wink and walked away. I wonder what happened to him...
    August 15th
    Midnight. Chris, who has been on a leave of absence for a "vacation," called me so I visited his apartment. As soon as I walked into his room, he showed me a couple of pieces of paper. They were part of a virus research report entitled as simply as "G". Then Chris told me that, "The nightmare still continues." He went on to say that, "It's not over yet." Ever since that day, he has been fighting all by himself without rest, without even telling me...
    August 24th
    Chris left the town today to go to Europe. Barry told me that he would send his family to Canada and then he would follow Chris. I decided to remain in Raccoon City for a while because I know that the research facility in this city will be very important to this entire case. In a month or so, I'll be joining with them somewhere in Europe. That's when my real battle begins...
