How to fight Nemesis in Resident Evil 3: Remake

Nemesis has a habit (like Mr X), of turning up when you least expect it. Expect him to burst through walls, grab you with a tentacle, or jump surprisingly large distances.

That makes it tricky to predict when he'll arrive, or what he'll do. While in most instances you'll simply want to run from Nemesis, there are some instances where exceptions can be made.

While Nemesis is only really tickled by bullets, environmental hazards do a lot more damage. Look out for explosive barrels, electrical boxes, and more.

We also know that the grenade launcher will be in the game, and well-timed frag grenades can also bringing him to his knees.

In fact, if you can send him packing, you'll be rewarded with ammo and weapon upgrades via a supply crate he drops once he falls to his knees.
