Resident Evil 5 is one of your hardest games I've ever played, not to mention the scariest. That's why I've compiled this list of Resident Evil 5 tips to make your existence a bit easier. The initial tip (and one on the most beneficial) that you might not know about is that you can mix herbs together to create a herb greater than the sum of its parts. For example, rather than having two healing herbs, you can mix them the two together and get one super-healing herb, which will heal you a lot more than the two singles combined. Veterans to the Resident Evil series will already know about this, but for newcomers it's one of your much more important Resident Evil 5 tips.
Due to the fact to proceed in sure areas with the game you require a sure level of currency (mainly for buying new weapons), it's important that you know how to earn money. The best and perhaps most overlooked method is through picking up items that you can later sell on for a profit. The absolute best place to find these types of items are hidden in barrels and lockers scattered throughout the game. At times the simplest ideas are the best, and that is definitely definitely the case here.
While to the topic of weapons and ammunition, you should try to become as conservative with it as you can. For example, a lowly single zombie can quite easily be taken down by a melee attack, so why waste your machine gun ammo on him? In fact, in some areas you don't have to even destroy any zombies at all, so it can pay to avoid them and simply run through. If you do suddenly realise that you need to change to a weapon, you can switch instantly by by using the controller's D-Pad, rather than going into the weapons menu.
