Resident Evil 7: How to Shoot

How to Shoot – Resident Evil 7

While Resident Evil 7 may be filled with horrors and things from your worst nightmares, you’ll luckily have a whole arsenal of weapons to protect yourself with. Of course, just because you have a weapon, doesn’t mean you’re safe, especially if you can’t actually use the weapon. Here’s how to shoot your weapon in Resident Evil 7.

Thankfully, shooting guns you pick up is incredibly easy. Once you’ve picked up a weapon, you’ll likely automatically equip it. Now, all you need to do is press L2 or LT to aim down the sights of the weapon and improve your aim, and then press R2 or RT to actually fire the round. It’s worth noting that enemies don’t go down easily in Resident Evil 7, so don’t assume that they’ll be down for the count after a round or two.


Be sure to take your time when aiming before firing. Some weapons can have a particularly slow fire rate, meaning a missed shot will leave you wide open for an enemy attack.

That’s all there is to shooting effectively in RE7. For more tips, tricks, and information on Resident Evil 7, be sure to check out our ever-expanding wiki guide.
