Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (1999) Resident Evil 3: Nemesis - Nemesis Encounters


Fearfully and wonderfully made
You'll have to deal with Umbrella's one-eyed mountain of terror no less than 7 times during the course of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. He's a tough cookie, so you'd best be prepared for all encounters you might — you will — have with him. Of course, there'll be times where you'll be given the option to flee and effectively save a boat load or ammunition and healing items, but the loot that you can can acquire upon defeating this giant, trench coat-wearing mutant is always almost worth the effort.

It's worth noting, however, that the rewards you'll receive as part of defeating the Nemesis will always arrive in the same order. To further clarify: whether you decide to battle the Nemesis for the first time at the Raccoon City Police Department or later on in the Restaurant, he will always drop the 'EAGLE Parts A' as a reward if it is the first time that he is bested.


1st defeat: EAGLE Parts A
2nd defeat: EAGLE Parts B
3rd defeat: First Aid Spray Box
4th defeat: BENELLI M3S Parts A
5th defeat: BENELLI M3S Parts B
6th defeat: First Aid Spray Box
7th defeat: Unlimited Ammunition Pack

Nemesis encounter #01

View attachment 984

[ Fight with the monster ]
[ Enter the Police Station ]

Where: Raccoon Police Department entrance.
When: Not long after the part involving the freshly-refueled Lighter and the burning away of ropes which were locking a gate.

We'd suggest skipping this fight entirely, unless you really fancy yourself something of a B.O.W.-squashing tough guy. Choosing to 'Enter the Police Station' will save you a tremendous amount of headaches, eliminating the likelihood of being pummelled over and over again by the mutated titan. However, if you'd like to save yourself a little bit more work further down the line, opt to 'Fight with the monster', but instead of actually engaging in any dooming gunplay, race over to Brad's lifeless body and collect his wallet; it'll contain a 'S.T.A.R.S. Keycard' which will work as a valid alternative to the other one you will have to collect inside the station, otherwise.

Nemesis encounter #02

Where: Raccoon Police Department corridor.
When: Shortly after collecting the lockpick from the S.T.A.R.S. team members' office.

Branching path
After your first encounter with one of those hellish-looking 'Drain Deimos' monstrosities, you'll be given the choice of heading towards a nearby restaurant or a slightly further-off newspaper office. You will have to visit both locations eventually, but we recommend making your way over to the restaurant first.

[ Run into the basement ]
[ Hide in the kitchen ]

Choose 'Hide in the Kitchen' — it'll result in the Nemesis being knocked onto his backside (courtesy of Jill throwing a makeshift grenade during a cutscene) and you scoring yourself a free reward.
