How to get S Rank in Resident Evil 2
To earn an S in both Standard or Hardcore mode, you have to beat the entire game under an allotted time. If it’s your first playthrough of either Leon or Claire’s story (also called “A” scenario), you need to finish in under 3 hours and 30 minutes. If you’ve already beaten the game once and you’ve unlocked the 2nd Run option (also called “B” scenario), then you need to complete everything in under 3 hours.
When playing the game in Hardcore mode you’ll have an hour less for each scenario: 2 hours and 30 minutes for your first time through the game, and 2 hours for any subsequent attempts. Keep in mind that achieving this rank is not possible with “Assisted” difficulty.
What do you get for S Rank?
Why play Hardcore mode instead of Standard? Well, besides the enjoyable challenge, you’ll unlock different weapons with this enhanced difficulty. Regardless of which scenario you play, or whether you’re Leon or Claire, this is what you’ll earn from each difficulty.
Standard difficulty = infinite ammo for the Samurai Edge Handgun
Hardcore difficulty = infinite ammo for the LE-5 Submachine Gun
Like DLC content, after you’ve unlocked a new weapon it will appear in any item box when you start a new game.
How to get S+ Rank in Resident Evil 2
Once again, time is of the essence if you want to hit S+, but it’s not the only thing you need to worry about. You’ll still have to beat the game in the same amount of time listed above, and in addition, you cannot use any infinite ammo weapons or bonus deluxe edition weapons. And, one more thing: you can only manually save three (or less) times during the entire game.
What do you get for S+ Rank?
Is S+ Rank just a masochistic completionist’s errand? You decide for yourself. Here’s what you can unlock by earning S+ Rank in Resident Evil 2:
Leon’s Story, Standard difficulty = infinite ammo for the ATM-4 Rocket Launcher
Claire’s Story, Hardcore difficulty = infinite ammo for the Minigun
That’s everything you need to know about how to earn the illustrious S and S+ Ranks in Resident Evil 2; all that’s left is…well, doing it! That’s the easy part, right?
