Play on Casual

Resident Evil Village (Resident Evil 8) Play on Casual - Don
We strongly recommend playing the game on Casual when attempting to complete this challenge. This makes all your enemies weaker and more vulnerable to gunfire. This also ensures that the damage you take will be lessened

Difficulty Differences

Save Often

It's imperative that you create manual saves as often as possible. This allows you to get back to a previous point where you had more health.

The game has an Auto Save function. Passing through certain areas immediately creates an Auto Save Point. If you are killed, you will be given the option of going back to the last Auto Save Point. If your last Auto Save Point already has you low on health, just reload your last Manual Save with you having more, if not complete, health.

Block Often

Always remember to block if you can't evade their attack as it will lessen the damage you'll receive, and you'll be able to hit them back quickly. You can also push them back if you've successfully blocked their attack.

Cook all available Dishes
