Chapter 2-3 is the fifth level of Resident Evil 5.



Chapter 2-3 is entirely fixed within Delta Team's Gambit. Driven by Dave Johnson, it is en route to Kijuju, where word gets out on the radio they are under attack by more B.O.W.s released on Ricardo Irving's orders.

Enemies consist of two main types. The first are Motorcycle Majini who will drive up in groups and toss Molotov Cocktails. The second are Majini on flatbed trucks, with the drives trying to crash the Gambit and its passengers who also throw Molotov Cocktails.

There are a number of hazards at this stage. The Gambit has a limited health value, so frequent hits will destroy it. Chris is armed with the PKM Machine gun on top of the Gambit, with Sheva using the bottom M61 Vulcan Minigun. Excessive use of the two turrets will cause them to burn out for several seconds, leaving the player open for attack. It is advised therefore the player not fire all the time.

Another hazard is that of Quick Time Events, which occur several times in the level as the Gambit swerves around a corner.

The final hazard is that of trucks which, even with no passengers, will try to ram the Gambit off the road. They must be shot at until they explode. In some cases, Motorcycle Majini will attack from one angle while a truck appears on the other, so the player must not focus attention exclusively on one side of the road.

Boss: Ndesu



After fighting in the Gambit for a 5-10 minute period of time, Chris and Sheva come across what is left of the Delta Team outpost, which has been destroyed by the Majini. Chris and Sheva then have to fight off a Ndesu, which very similar to the El Gigante from Resident Evil 4. During this fight, you both have to use the turrets from the Gambit. Be wary of the Majini that will occasionally appear and whittle away at your health.

To kill this enemy: First, have both players continuously shoot the monster in the face. He has two main attacks that he uses. 1. When he lifts up his foot to stomp on the Gambit, shoot him in the face or the leg 2. He will lean back with his fists together and will bring them down onto the Gambit, to stop this shoot him in the head as he begins the attack. Ndesu will pick up a large boulder which can be destroyed with enough gunfire or by shooting the oil barrel on the right of him and after a certain amount of damage is dealt, two Las Plagas parasites will sprout form different parts of its body. Have one player shoot at the parasites while the other player keeps shooting at its face. It will also pick up a pole and will smash you with it prompting dodge sequences to make it drop the pole and avoid this. Shoot the oil barrel nearest to Ndesu. Once the smaller parasites are killed, a larger one will sprout from its back, which should be shot at by both players until it goes back into the monster. After dealing more damage the next phase of the monster will appear revealing four Las Plagas parasites, from its chest and arms, like last time once they are gone the large one should pop out of its back. Shooting the Giant Las Plagas parasite from its back will kill it.

Further notes

  • This chapter is generally more favourable to have an AI partner than a human partner, especially if you play as Chris, seeing as the AI partner is extremely accurate with the Gambit's guns, and during the Savanna chase, your partner will shoot at enemies almost instantly after they spawn, giving you a great early-warning system.
