Resident Evil 2 (1998) All Files Location

I love Resident Evil as a series and in particular the original 1998 Resident Evil 2, I have done some long plays and speedruns such as Jill’s Diary guide for RE3 but never have I attempted to do all files for Resident Evil 2.

There are a few lists of file locations and names on the internet it was frustrating that there wasn’t a single guide or table of the order they are collected and which character and scenarios they can be found at.

So, here it is, the complete list and a rough pick up order for ALL files for ’98 RE2 INCLUDING the N64 exclusive EX FILES.

The default sorting of this table is when you encounter them.
