How to Unlock Tofu in Resident Evil 2
To begin unlocking Tofu Survivor in Resident Evil 2, you’re firstly going to need to beat the main game, twice over. This means undertaking the main campaign once as Claire Redfield, and then again as Leon Kennedy.
After you’ve completed the campaign twice, you’ll unlock the Fourth Survivor mode. This special Resident Evil 2 mode stars the enigmatic Hunk, and you’ll need to undertake a series of challenges, all against a countdown timer, in order to beat Fourth Survivor. After you’ve successfully beaten Fourth Survivor, you’ll finally unlock the Tofu Survivor mode in Resident Evil 2.
So, what actually is the Tofu Survivor mode in Resident Evil 2? You play as a block of sentient tofu, armed with nothing but a knife and two healing herbs, battling your way through all the same trials and challenges that Hunk faced in the Fourth Survivor mode.
Tofu doesn’t have a health bar in Tofu Survivor mode, but instead changes color depending on damage sustained. We’re yet to partake in Tofu Survivor for ourselves, but once we’ve stepped into the shoes of this brave block of tofu, we’ll be updating this section with a full guide on how exactly you can beat the Tofu Survivor mode.
