Hint: Starting the trolley:
The oil additive needed to start the trolley is located in a locked store room inside the sales office. To unlock it, pick up the flashy remote on a desk to turn on a TV. You will see a commercial about some product from Ubrella Corp. Make note of that product (Safsprin, Adravil, Aquacure, etc.). Go to the nearby computer where Carlos just shot his zombied friend. You will be prompted for a password. Type in the name of the product to unlocked the storeroom.
Hint: Police locker combination:
When entering the Police Station and going into the door in the top left corner you will reach a room with zombies. After killing them, enter the next room, which contains the lockers. Once there, go to the other side to find a locker with a light on it. The game will prompt for a code. The code is "0131", "0513", "4312", or "0114".
Capcom made Resident Evil 3 hard to cheat by making the combinations for the lockers and locations of items in different numbers and locations. Do things differently in each game and you will get a different game each time it is played.
Hint: Medical locker combination:
To get the combination to the medical locker in the hospital, go to the room next to that room. Check the dead body in the corner to find one of the following combinations: "513", "101", "498", or "517".
Hint: Grenade launcher:
Use the S.T.A.R.S Card in the computer in the main entrance of the Police Station. When you get the S.T.A.R.S Emblem Key, go to the S.T.A.R.S Office. When you are in the office, go to the big locker next to the out-of-commission message receiver. Open the locker and you will get a Grenade Launcher.
Some people may find the Magnum in the big locker. In this situation, the Grenade Launcher may be found in the Sub-Station.
There are two different ways to get the Grenade launcher. There is one in the Sub-Station when the game is first played. The other is available after the game has been completed once. Go to the S.T.A.R.S. office and go were the Magnum gun was originally obtained.
Hint: Rocket launcher:
In the dead factory, go to the machine next to the water sampler puzzle. Use the facility key where that game states a small plastic card can be inserted. Take the other facility key that is given and go to the steaming room where the small card activated elevator is located .Go down and use the facility key on the door where that game states a small plastic card can be inserted. You will find a rocket launcher with four shots at this location.
Go directly to the Evidence Room in the Police Station. Go to the number-based lock with the S.T.A.R.S Emblem Key. Use one of the following three passwords: "0131", "4011", or "4312". You will receive the Emblem Key. Go to the locker in the S.T.A.R.S Office. Open the locker to get a Magnum.
Hint: Water combination code:
At the water sample machine near the dead factory, enter "1 Right" for A, "3 Right" for B, and "4 Left" for C. That should unlock half of the lock to the door next to the elevator.
Hint: Music Box code:
One of the codes for the music box in the top or the tower is Down, Up, Up, Down, Down, Up.
Hint: Vaccine medium combination:
One of the combinations when making the vaccine medium in the hospital is 2 and B.
Hint: Saving ammo and health:
You can save ammunition when fighting zombies by waiting until they are right in front of you. Then, aim upward and shoot. If done correctly, your shot will blow their head off, even with a handgun. In some rooms there are barrels or red small boxes on the wall. Wait until the monsters in that room are next to those objects before shooting the barrels or boxes to blow them all to pieces. When fighting spiders, shoot them when they are on the wall or ceiling to drop them to the floor. Then, run behind them and then start shooting. The best way to get past brainsuckers is to just run past them. When fighting the dogs, just shoot them. When they jump at you, dodge them by pressing X When fighting hunters, shoot them, and when they jump, run under them. When fighting Nemisis, start shooting him and when he tries to grab you, run. Repeat until he bleeds purple liquid from his tentacles.
Hint: Checking zombies:
To tell if zombies are still active after they are cut in half, leave the room. If the zombie is still on the floor, he is still active.
Walk back and forth in front of their head or enable the auto aim feature and press Aim.
Hint: Run on one foot:
When running, quickly and repeatedly tap Square. Jill will run on one foot, and her other foot will never touch the ground.
Glitch: Ladder scene:
When you are in the park with a cemetery and find the park key, a giant worm/snake appears from under the ground. After killing it, the only way out is to climb a fence. When you climb the fence, the game shows your character going up a ladder.
