"We were foolish enough to think the zoo might provide refuge, but all that greeted us were approaching footsteps that shook the earth."
— In-game description

"wild things", known in Japan as Roar (咆哮 Hōkō?) is the first storyline scenario in Resident Evil Outbreak File #2 - the first being a tutorial level. The level was completed from a draft outlined as Scenario "R040", one of some forty or so proposed stages for the game.


Searching for a way out of the chaotic city, Cindy Lennox finds her way to the gates of the Raccoon Zoo. Reading a note on a sign mentioning an evacuation chopper, she realizes that she must cross through the zoo to reach the extraction point.

The survivors unlock the gate and enter the deserted park, only to be attacked by a rogue "Zombie Elephant". Escaping it, they explore the park in search of Mr. Raccoon Medals, which are required to activate the power, while at the same time the survivors fought their way amongst the horde of undead beasts. Eventually, the survivors escape the zoo; after a brief fight with infected Lionesses. They only have two choices; fight for survival or end up at their jaws.

Eventually the survivors escaped the zoo, only to be greeted by the Zombie Elephant (or Zombie Lion) in a final duel. After the "Death Knell" of the beasts, the survivors make it to a tram and attempt to make their own way out. However, the tram stops violently as the rescue helicopter crashes nearby; killing forty refugees.


This Scenario is a bit hard for first time players, especially on normal because it requires you to do a whole lot more. You will start by the gate entrance to the zoo. Head down the street (take anything you think you need at the beginning), there might be a couple of zombies. Go to the sign in front of the 'Elephant Restaurant' to find a map, then go inside the building.

There are two options, either take the file at the end of the room to see the code of the gate or break the door behind you to find a wire cutter to open the gate. Now head back to the gate and open it in whichever way you decided to do it. Now that you're in the zoo, you will be greeted by a cutscene that introduces you to the Zombie Elephant.

After the cutscene, you will be in control with the Zombie Elephant rather close to you. Just run for now since you don't have the weaponry needed to take him down, and you will have to do certain things to prepare the scenario's final boss. If you are far enough, the Zombie Elephant will just go to another area for now. If you want, you can go back to take a mixed green and red herb from AI Cindy who is now lying dead on the floor.

The next objective is to find all the Mr. Raccoon medals necessary to turn on the power (on easy difficulty, this is not necessary as the power is already on) before you can start to do anything to escape. After you've inserted all the Raccoon medals, you can turn the power on. Yet, there is still a few more Mr. Raccoon medals needed to take an item that is needed to open the emergency exit of the zoo. If the player is playing on easy difficulty, they'll only have to find one Lion Emblem needed to unlock the other way out, and only a few Raccoon Medals. In harder difficulty, the player is forced to find the two Lion Emblems while searching for an increased number of Raccoon Medals.

You can save your progress by heading to the Inner Office in the zoo office building and find a typewriter machine (this is the room where you'll find a computer needed to activate the zoo's power). But be wary; the Zombie Elephant will crash its head into the room and swing its trunk, damaging anyone in the proximity.

There is one part where you must make a choice between the Zombie Elephant boss fight or Zombie Lion boss fight. If you want to fight the lion, you can either kill Zombie Elephant or lock him up in the elephant stage. Should you trap the Elephant, you must avoid being in the arena for too long or he will escape (this scene is required to achieve a 100% event checklist). Locking the gate will make a Lion Emblem fall from the top of the gate. The bosses are both pretty hard but if you have the Hunting Rifle, the Zombie Lion only needs two shots from it and it will die. The Zombie Elephant will regularly flinch from melee attacks so you'll want to keep your partners alive and give them melee weapons necessary to battle the elephant. After you're done with the boss, enter the tram and watch the final cutscene of the scenario.

Character-specific secrets[]

  • If the player plays as Mark, they can move the tour bus found in the east concourse and collect ammo, a file and have a spot to hide from the Zombie Elephant.
  • If the user plays as Alyssa, they can find a special note behind a flipped table in the Office and at the Tram. They can also open a locker in the same room of the flipped table and find a shotgun inside it.
  • If the user plays as Cindy, she may find a special note in the restaurant, inside the counter. If the user DOESN'T play as Cindy or choose her as an ally she will be found dead, trampled upon by Zombie Elephant, in the area where the player finally enters the zoo, and there will be two herbs (Normal or mixed herbs) and a special item on her body.


Further notes[]

  • In the European version of File #2, when Cindy goes to read the Evacuation Plan, subtitles will show what she's reading. However, in the American version, a player has to read the file (which will give points)
  • The game would be easier to defeat if a player plays as Cindy and has David and Yoko as partners; Since David can make Combo Weapons (strangely, they deal more damage to T-infected animals) and he will stick up with Yoko (who stays behind Cindy most of the time) who will hold the raccoon coins if asked.
  • It appears that Cindy is the canon character for this scenario.
