A few days ago, we talked about a handful of mods for Resident Evil 2. Since then there has been more than a few mods that have been released for the title. We’ve installed, played them and agreed (mostly) that more people need to check out these mods.
So in no order, here are several mods that you should check out if you’re playing Resident Evil 2 on the PC.
X Gon’ Give It To Ya mod
What started off as a playful meme, has finally come to life. T-103 Tyrant, or widely known as Mister X, cases our heroes during Resident Evil 2. Seeing how Mister X is following your every step, someone started the meme by adding DMX’s “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” and it’s pretty much been seen everywhere.
Of course, it was a matter of time before someone turned this into an actual mod. Now you can relive the meme, over and over in the actual game. It’s easily my favorite mod, however, it does require a fair bit of tinkering to get it working. But it’s worth the time.
To get the details on how to download and install this mode, head on over to the Steam Community for Resident Evil 2.
Claire Redfield’s Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles Costume
As seen by the pictures below, this mod replaces Claire Redfield’s classic costume with the same one from Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles. Released for the PlayStation 3 and Wii, this title served as a prequel to Resident Evil 4 and changed the formula from survival horror to a shooting game. So while it’s not one of my more enjoyable titles, it did give us this really nice looking model of Claire.
This mod is simple and straight to the point. Some people simply aren’t fans of pumping bullets into zombies and the other creatures in the game, without knowing how much damage they’ve done. This mod makes it easier for them by displaying the amount of health left. So you won’t have to wonder if that headshot did enough damage anymore. Pretty useful for speedruns as well.
First Person Camera and RE2 Mod Framework
Being chased by stuff that goes bump in the night is already scary enough. So let’s make it even worse by introducing a mod that changes the camera into a first-person perspective. Yep, just like an FPS, you’re now given a different point of view. Believe it or not, it works out really well and the game is actually a bit easier with this mod. It reminds me of the first-person mode that was added to another horror survivor game, The Evil Within 2.
Combine it with the swap soundtrack and have yourself a good time. Yes, it does take some time to get used to, but once you do you’ll be happy you’re using the mod.
Download the mod at Nexus Mods, credit for the mod goes to Praydog.
Not a fan of the revamped inventory system in Resident Evil 2 and enjoy the look of the original ’98 classic inventory system instead? Not to worry as you’re not the only one who thinks so. In fact, thanks to Crazy Potato on Nexus Mods. This mode recreates the look from the original game, however, the functionality is still similar to the Resident Evil 2 Remake inventory system.
RE Immersion Reshade
This mod changes the graphical/visual look of the game by highlighting several effects in the game. By tweaking the sharpness, DOF and other elements such as Bloom, this mode helps create, well, immersion. it even gets rid of the annoying vignette effect.
Keep in mind that Reshade mods can add a bit of a strain. So if the game is already taxing your PC, running this mod could drop your performance. But if you can run the game without issue, I highly recommend you check it out.
Claire Redfield Blonde with White Dress
This mod was inspired by Resident Evil 2: The Ghost Survivors. In a nutshell, this mod takes the dress worn by the major’s daughter and makes it wearable by Claire. However, in order to get this working, you’ll need the Elza Walker outfit. If you don’t have it, it’s a paid download on Steam. You may also want to keep a backup for the original files or have Steam verify them if you ever want the original Elza Walker outfit again. This mod will override it.
So there you go, some more Resident Evil 2 PC mods to download and check out. If you liked these, let me know and I’ll keep checking out the latest mods for Resident Evil 2, as well as other games.
