As seen in the original game, even in the Resident Evil 2 remake you will have to use all the resources at your disposal to survive the zombie apocalypse. In this mini-guide we will talk about using Herbs, explaining what they are for and how you can combine them to get beneficial effects.
Below we list the three types of herbs that can be collected in Resident Evil 2 during the adventure:
Green Grass: This type of grass is able to restore health. In the game you will find it in large quantities scattered throughout the levels, so always keep your eyes open during the exploratory phases.
Blue Grass: Blue Grass is used to treat poisoning states, even if it will be ineffective against those brought by some more powerful enemies. This type of grass will be more difficult to find than the green one.
Red Grass: Unlike the other two types, the Red Grass cannot be used alone. Its only function is to be combined with other herbs to obtain a series of effects.
After having talked about the three types of herbs available, we now list all the Recipes obtainable in the game by combining the Green, Blue and Red Herbs:
Green Grass: Restores a small amount of health.
Green Grass x2: Restores a moderate amount of health.
Green Grass x3: Completely restores health.
Green Grass + Red Grass: Completely restores health.
Green Grass x2 + Red Grass: Completely restores health and reduces damage taken for a short period of time.
Green Grass + Blue Grass: Removes the poison and restores a small amount of health.
Green Grass + Blue Grass + Red Grass: Completely restores health, removes poisoning and reduces damage for a short period of time.
Green Grass x2 + Blue Grass: Removes the poison and restores a moderate amount of health.
Blue Herb: Cures states of poisoning.
Blue Grass + Red Grass: Removes the poison and protects for a short period of time from further poisoning.
As you can see above, the various recipes available in Resident Evil 2 allow you to get different beneficial effects on your character. Our advice is to carefully explore the levels and collect all the herbs encountered during the journey, trying to combine them according to the dangers you expect to face during the adventure.
