Knife Runs Are Possible in Resident Evil 3

The problem with cheap, flimsy knives is a problem left in Resident Evil 2

The remake for Resident Evil 2 was a huge success, but there’s at least a handful of things that drove players crazy. One of those things was the destructible knife – something that was only meant to be used defensively as a last resort during attack. In Resident Evil 3, however, the knife will be strong once again and it won’t break. This means that, among other things, a hardcore knife run is possible.

“We kept the knife inexhaustible [in Resident Evil 3], so you can use it forever,”

In an interview with Game Informer, game producer Peter Fabiano explained things in a little more detail. In the right hands, the knife can even be used as your sole weapon. Be that as it may, it’s still really there as an emergency backup – you know, when you run out of bullets. No matter what, it’ll still be there.

“We’re dealing with survival horror and everything is exhaustible. You run out of bullets. You run out of herbs. You run out of all the items you can use. So if you did run out of everything, what would you have? The knife. The director always wanted to make it so that you at least have your trusty knife. That’s always something you can rely on.”
