How to Unlock and Play Tofu Survivor Mode in Resident Evil 2
The Resident Evil 2 remake brings back everything we loved about the PS1 classic title, and that includes the wacky Tofu Survivor mode, in which you take control of a literal block of tofu. Here’s how to unlock and play Tofu Survivor mode in Resident Evil 2.
Here are the general steps you need to take to unlock Tofu Mode in Resident Evil 2:
- Beat the game with either Leon or Claire.
- Beat New Game 2nd Run with either Leon or Claire.
- Beat the 4th Survivor mode.
First things first, you’ll need to complete Resident Evil 2 with either Leon or Claire. Doing so will unlock the New Game 2nd Run mode for whichever character you didn’t pick first. Once you beat New Game 2nd Run with that character, you’ll then unlock the 4th Survivor mode, which was also in the original game.
4th Survivor puts you in control of HUNK, and you’ll have to escape the station with limited ammo and healing items. If you’re able to clear this mode, you’ll then unlock the Tofu Survivor mode.
If you played the original game back on the PS1, you’ll likely already know that Tofu Survivor is no joke.
This mode is essentially the same as 4th Survivor, except you’ll only be armed with knives, and fewer healing items than what HUNK had. You’ll need to ensure you’ve memorized the layout of the game’s different sections if you have any hope of surviving in this mode.
Needless to say, this is some of the toughest content you can find in the remake, and it’ll likely take you a few tries to clear it.
And that’s all you need to know about how to unlock and play Tofu Survivor mode in Resident Evil 2. Be sure to check our RE2 guide wiki for more tips and information on the game.
