In Resident Evil 2, Nightmare Mode and Expert Mode are available only for the Dreamcast And Windows Ports. Although the Rookie Mode was featured in the Gamecube and PlayStation versions, Nightmare Mode and Expert Mode are missing for unknown reasons. In this mode, enemies will cause a lot more damage, ammo and health items will become a lot more scarce, and usually with certain monsters, your health can be taken from Fine to Danger in one hit. This happens more often with the Lickers.

The mode makes a return in Outbreak File 2, Which can be purchased in the Store for 10000 Points after Finishing each Scenario in the game on the Very Hard difficulty. In this mode, the only things that change in the gameplay is that healing items heal only 75% of their usual percentage and enemies can inflict 30% more damage to the player character. As an interesting addition, it can be used with any level of difficulty, which keeps the same location for items and enemies in their specific difficulty without changing. For very experienced players, one should try to combine Nightmare mode with Very Hard difficulty and achieve a No Damage Taken bonus; This rewards players with more than 10000 points for the collection.
