How to Get the Submachine Gun in Resident Evil 2
Managing your ammo and weapons in Resident Evil 2 is vital to completing the game especially if you want to earn an A or S ranking. One of the first guns that come to mind when helping you do this quickly and efficiently is the Submachine Gun. Here is everything you need to know about how to get the Submachine Gun in Resident Evil 2.
Before you do any searching, know that Claire is the only one that can wield the Submachine Gun. As such, you’ll need to be playing as her to even unlock it.
Red Jewel and STAR Shield
The first thing you need to do is head to the Art Room. Located inside the room, you’ll find a Red Jewel.
Once you’ve picked up the Red Jewel, go to the Interrogation Room, which can be found on the first floor of the east wing. Inside Claire finds a Jeweled Box.
Place the Red Jewel you found early into the Jeweled Box. This opens the box, revealing an item known as the STAR Shield.
With the STAR Shield in hand, Claire can now access the STARS Office in the west wing second floor. Once you’ve made it to the Office, insert the Shield, which is actually a USB dongle, into the PC.
Inserting the USB will open up the Armory. Housed inside the Armory is the Submachine Gun.
This gun is ideal for fighting all kinds of enemies. While it doesn’t do much damage with individual rounds, the full-auto capability and huge magazine capacity will make short work off basic zombies, lickers, and even deal serious damage to bosses like G-Birkin.
Before you head out, be sure to grab the STAR Shield, as it can be used later on to upgrade the Submachine Gun.
Now that you’ve got the speed and ammo capacity of Claire’s favorite automatic weapon, Resident Evil 2 might not seem as impossible to complete. That is everything you need to know about how to get the Submachine Gun in Resident Evil 2.
