Resident Evil 2 Herbs

As we mentioned at the top of this guide to herbs, there are a few distinct type of herbs that can be found in Resident Evil 2. They can be found in all the different areas of the game, from the police station to the sewers, and just below we’ll provide you with all the information you need to know about the three types of herbs.

  • Green Herb - The most common of all the three types of herbs. You can use green herbs on their own to immediately restore a small portion of health to Leon or Claire.
  • Red Herb - At first, red herbs might seem useless compared to green herbs, because you can’t just pick them up and use them straight away. However, if you combine them with green or blue herbs, they basically amplify the effects of said herb. So for example, if you pair a green herb with a red herb, the resulting item will give you a better healing bonus.
  • Blue Herb - Finally, the blue herbs will cure Leon or Claire of poison in Resident Evil 2. There’s no way you can get poisoned in the early parts of the game, but it’s once you hit the sewers section of the game that these items become invaluable.
