This speedrun guide has been tweaked based partially off MKim's Claire Scenario 1 Speed Guide hosted on GameFAQs. The main goal of this guide is to help the reasonably experienced RE2 gamer get the coveted Unlimited Ammo Rocket Launcher plus a bonus "A" Ranking under 2 hours with a maximum of 6 Saves! This has been tested and retested with the changes to make sure it's viable (with decent room for error. e.g. zombie grabs and bites, wrong turns, forgetting to pause). Hence, being an advanced player to use this guide is not a prerequisite. KNOWING THE GAME IS! Obviously this is NOT for first-timers, and will assume that you have done a long playthrough of Claire A Scenario 1 at least once to get a feel and an idea of where things are. In short, if you are struggling to find where the items are, and/or you can't make heads or tails what the guide is referencing, then this guide is NOT for you... yet!

I have also taken the liberty to rename some rooms in the maps, and I have chosen NOT to bypass some creatures in the game (I don't like things in my way!). Feel free to bypass any at your leisure, but always remember the main goal of this guide - to help you get the Rocket Launcher (NOT the best speedrun time!). Trying to bypass some dogs (and fail) or getting swarmed by zombies just to save some ammo and then dying is not worth it, unless you don't mind reloading a saved game.

Also, take note of the following conditions which MUST BE MET for this endeavour to succeed:

a. MAXIMUM OF 6 SAVES
b. NO USING HEALTH SPRAYS.
c. NO TOUCHING SPECIAL WEAPONS (weapons that take up 2 squares in your pack, except the gifted Rocket Launcher near the end).
d. NO USING WEAPONS WITH UNLIMITED AMMO (you will mainly be limited to the Hand Gun, Shotgun, and Magnum for the most part).
e. NO TOUCHING THE MAC11 (if you came across it, you are in the WRONG ROOM!!! What are you doing?!?!?!).

Basically, just follow the guide to the letter, and you'll be fine. Remember, the PAUSE KEY / F1 is your best friend as you will be making extensive use of it. Are you ready? Let's go.
