Resident Evil 2 Files guide: Obtain the Lore Explorer Record

0

You could open your own library with all these files...

Resident Evil 2 is available now, and to help you with all of its Records, Achievements and Trophies, were here with guides. This guide is for the Lore Explorer Record, tasking you to find all files in the game.

We’re going to make this as spoiler-free as possible, though we’ll have to be a little specific as some files can be missable as part of your playthrough(s). You’ve been warned! There is also a point of no return that we’ll make sure you’re aware of.

Let’s get to it! There are 58 files in total, so strap in — it’s going to take a while. Some files are accessible in both Leon and Claire’s campaigns, and others are character-specific.
