The Fire Escape is a location in the Resident Evil 2 remake.
In the [1st] scenario, the Bolt Cutter is the main target of this room. This item allows Leon/Claire to get the Valve Handle and the Detonator (No Battery). After the cutscene that plays here, the character will call Marvin but there will be no response back from him.
In the [2nd] scenario, the Bolt Cutter is not present in this room because it was already acquired to enter this area in the first place. Instead, this room has no key item present in it, however, Large-caliber Handgun Ammo will be present here instead of Handgun Ammo.
There is also one Wooden Boards present in this area in both scenarios.
