Now that Resident Evil 3 Remake is out for the PC, the modders have been busy cranking out lots of mods. Some great, some so-so, while others are so over the top and ridiculous that you have to love them. Below are several of my favorite mods so far, as well as where to get them.
Don’t expect the usual skimpy mods, if you want those you can go look for them yourself. These mods are tasteful, well almost all of them anyway.
2B enters Resident Evil 3
Now, this mod isn’t new to the Resident Evil series, as it was also present for Resident Evil 2 Remake. Still, that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable to see our (mine) favorite android take it to the zombies. This mod was created by Vyaomo, and it is a bit NFSW as 2B’s assets are shown, which is basically if you self-destruct 2B in NieR: Automata. Yes, her skirt is gone but if you can ignore that (or not) then you’ll enjoy this mod. So far, I haven’t seen any issues with it performance-wise or graphically in the game.
That said, there is another 2B Jill replacement mod, but I feel this one is the superior one.
This mod will give Jill Valentine the same battlesuit that she wears in Resident Evil 5, and there are two variants of it; Classic and Full Equipment. With the Classic outfit, Jill only has the pistol holster and knife. While the Full Equipment version has everything; flashlight, full belt, and everything Jill needs to go to war.
Originally, this mod had an issue once Jill woke up in the hospital, but has since then been updated and it works great.
Download this mod on Nexusmods.com. Just make sure you get version 1.2 files as those are the updated ones.
PlayStation Dualshock buttons
For those who enjoy using their DualShock 4 controllers on PC, will have noticed that Resident Evil 3 Remake only includes Xbox button prompts. Thankfully, this mod changes all that. Keep in mind that this will only work in the singleplayer campaign of RE3R and does not work in Resistance, currently. The author of the mod, Boycalledjames, is working on that now.
While Carlos is a manly man, he can’t hold a candle to Devil May Cry’s Dante (the real Dante). So why not replace Carlos, with Dante with this mod.
Keep in mind that there are some glitches with this mod, as it’s still being worked on. Still, it looks great. Sadly, this does mean that enabling this mod will leave you in a Carlos-less world. Sorry, about that Jill.
If you play Resident Evil 3 Remake at 60 FPS or Variable (If not, insert Reggie Gif), then you already know that the zombies at a distance only animate at 30 FPS. For me, well it drives me crazy. Thankfully, a trainer was created to force those zombies to animate at 60+ FPS, instead. Since it is a trainer, you’ll have to launch it first, start the game, then enable to trainer script. It sounds complicated, but it really isn’t.
While this may not be for everyone, just seeing the zombies animate properly when I’m lining up a headshot is worth the hassle.
While Bad Boxart Mega Man isn’t one of my favorites, but it does warrant an inclusion. Why? Because it’s Bad Boxart Mega Man, that’s why. The same guy who ended up in Street Fighter X Tekken, and has found his way into a number of memes and even featured in Resident Evil 3. So why not play as him when you get the chance?
This mod replaces Carlo’s skin, but it doesn’t edit his face. Now when you play as Carlos, you still imagine yourself playing a 3D Mega Man. Because let’s face it, you may not ever see that game become a reality.
