This page contains information about the tips for getting critical hits in the game Resident Evil 3 Remake. Read on to learn what a critical hit is and how to increase your chances of getting critical hits.

What is a Critical Hit

Critical Hit
A Critical Hit significantly increases the damage of the shot you made to the enemy. You can spot a critical hit when a shockwave comes out of the place where you shot the enemy.

You can instantly kill zombies with one critical hit to their heads.

How to Increase Critical Hit Chance

Focus the Reticle and Shoot

When aiming for the enemy, you can stand still and wait for your reticle to become smaller before shooting them. A smaller reticle has higher accuracy and increases your critical hit chance.

Counterattack After a Perfect Dodge

The slow motion counterattack after the perfect dodge also significantly increases you critical hit chance. The easiest way to get a critical hit is to successfully attempt a perfect dodge and counterattack by shooting the enemy on the head.

    • Anyone still alive? Hahahaha. I hope this pandemic doesn't evolve into a zombie apocalypse.

    • I can see marketing elements in the new part of the game. Currently, it is becoming more and more popular. All in all, I am not surprised it is a way to get extra money for game developers. For more information on marketing in games, see this article:
