Gameplay Pointers

We'd like to introduce some tips so that players can get more out of the Project Resistance Closed Beta Test!
We hope our Beta Test participants will read these pointers and take advantage of them!


  • A firm understanding of the map is a shortcut to a better experience. If you'd like, you can even play with the map screen displayed!

  • If cameras are malfunctioning after being damaged by Survivors, you can restore functionality more quickly by moving the left and right sticks in a rapid fashion.

  • You can surrender your command over a controlled zombie at any time by simultaneously pressing the L3 and R3 buttons (On Xbox One, you can do this by pressing the left stick and right stick).


  • When teammates acquire important items or your goal has been updated, this information will be displayed in the upper left of the screen.

  • In the first area, it's not enough to just gather the three key items; the door won't open until all four teammates are waiting together.

  • In the second area, once you defeat the Security Guard Zombie and obtain the Security Card, you must disarm three security devices.

  • In the third area, you need to destroy three red Bio Cores.

  • When someone obtains Umbrella Credits, the other Survivors will receive the same amount of Credits.

  • Using a melee weapon will decrease its Durability. If you have a Repair Kit, it will be consumed automatically to fix the weapon when its Durability falls to 0.

  • Sometimes you will spot a zombie carrying a backpack. By defeating this Supply Zombie, you can get powerful weapons and items.

  • What about the nightmare-inducing Tyrant? Is there any way to stop him!? As a strategy, we recommend running away!

  • Survivors have two types of skills: a highly versatile 'Personal Skill' and a powerful 'Fever Skill' that will come in handy when the going gets tough!

  • By shooting a camera with a gun until the camera's durability is reduced to 0, you can cause it to malfunction temporarily.

  • If you are continuously attacked by zombies, you will become infected. You can heal this infection by using a Blue Herb or Infection Treatment Spray.


There is a known issue in the closed beta test version of Project Resistance in which the Security Guard Zombie in the second area or the Bio Cores in the third area may occasionally fail to appear. If this issue occurs, survivors will be unable to complete the area.

[How to Resolve This Issue]
Although the survivors will be unable to complete the area, they can still play until time runs out. Furthermore, by accessing the menu (via the OPTIONS button for PlayStation®4 system or the Menu button for Xbox One), players can leave the game and return to the main menu.
If you encounter this problem, please try restarting the game.
