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


After riding the gondola out of the Ndipaya village, Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar find themselves at the execution ground where a member of the BSAA rescue team is hung over the swamp and eaten by a crocodile. As they approach the oil refinery, they take note of tens displaying the Tricell logo, describing Plaga-based research on the tribesmen, implicating the BSAA's original financier in illegal human experimentation. Within the oil refinery, the pair runs into Cpt. Josh Stone, who is given the bad news about his squad. Accepting they are the only three left, he is confused why they did not acknowledge the withdrawal orders, forcing the two to admit they are going against orders to find out about Jill Valentine. After the oil refinery is stormed by Town Majini, the three BSAA soldiers fight through the attackers and head to their source, a yacht on which Ricardo Irving is on board. As he departs downriver, he activates a timer on explosives placed around the refinery. Alomar, Redfield and Cpt. Stone get to a boat and narrowly avoid being killed in the explosion.


Execution Grounds

The Execution Grounds is split between three parts, the path at the start, the main area and one at the end. As enemies only appear in the middle part, this will be explained the most. This section is an area of swampland with a serious of wooden walkways which must be jumped over to get across. The bridge out of this area has been raised up by a mechanism and the door too it is locked. The player and their partner must separate to get to the mechanism, with one rotating a crank that pulls a raft the other is travelling on. The crank puller will be at risk of attack by Wetlands Majini, though the player on the raft will be forced into QTEs to escape from a crocodile which tries to grab them. When getting to the other side, the bridge can be lowered and the door unlocked to get back to it without the raft.

After this area, the player will reach an path with long grass on both sides; within the grasses are snakes which can be killed for eggs. At the end of the path is a series of tents with the Tricell emblem on, in which there are spare items including a First Aid Spray. Further along is the door to the oil refinery. Turning around to face the cliff, the player will also see a BSAA emblem.

Oil Field - Refinery

In the oil field, there are gas leakages to the path toward the main building where leads to Irving. In order to turn them off, you'll need to enable the wheel to activate the two zip-lines, and turn the other two wheels to stop the leakage. However, every time you reach the two wheels, a Chainsaw Majini appears. The wheel next to a blocked door will trigger a Chainsaw Majini upon both characters' arrival, so once you reach the wheel, turn it before your partner comes. The other wheel will trigger another Chainsaw Majini once any one of the characters reaches the wheel. You'll have enough time to turn the wheel before the Chainsaw Majini comes. Both of them could be ignored, but it's not recommended. This area is large enough to use sniper rifle, making the kill faster. You can also use the Magnum to speed up the kill, but if you don't have enough ammo or want to save them for later, use the former to help you. They will also drop a Venom Fang (3000g).

Oil Field - Control Facility

Proceed to the main building, and you'll trigger a cutscene, which tells you that Josh survived Ndesu's ambush. The three must leave the facility and find Irving before he runs away again. Josh will enable the elevator while you and your partner protect him. There will be Town Majinis climbing over the fences, and through both the windows in the left and the right. There will be two Big Man Majinis. After killing all Majini, get into the elevator and go up. Proceed to a door, where there will be another machine beside it. Josh will again enable the door while you and your partner protect him. A cutscene will play, and some Majinis, including a Chainsaw Majini, will come from the elevator. You can instantly kill all of them with the Infinite Rocket Launcher, or climb the ladder and snipe them. The door will open in no time, but the Chainsaw Majini will reach the door before it's open, so you should try to kill that enemy.

Oil Field - Dock

You can leave the place when the door is ready to be opened, leaving any surviving enemies behind in the process. Then you'll reach the port, and you will be able to see a ship. Go toward the ship and you'll trigger a cutscene, in which Irving states that the oil field will be destroyed by charges and leaves, beginning a 2-minute timer. You'll receive a transmission from Josh, saying that he has found a boat to leave the field. You'll need to kill two groups of Majini and open a gate, at which point a Big Man Majini will come out with four dogs. Before getting down the stairs, notice that there are two tripwire mines that you need to shoot to pass safely.

Josh will be below, and the door of the room beside Josh will be opened, a few Majini coming through a moment afterwards; Josh will help fight them off. Reach the dock, and this Chapter ends.
