When I play singleplayer and let the A.I control sheva, is there any way to change her default weapon?

Because I've hooked her up with an sniper rifle and shotgun. I want her to use the sniper rifle as her primary weapon. But she is currently holding the shotgun :(

Is there any way, I can change her default/primary weapon choise?

The best way to do this is to let her run out of shotgun ammo.

Putting her on attack mode (hold Partner button, then tap up on D-pad) might force her to use sniper rifle as well when the enemies are out of reach.

weapons piority (smallest number = lower)

1) pistol
2) shotgun
3) smg
4) assault rifle
5) sniper rifle
6) magnum
7) rocket launcher

in Cover mode AI sheva will pick the lowest piority
shotgun being lower than sniper rifle will be weapon of choice

unless she ran out of ammo, or target falls beyond effective
range of a shotgun, she will use sniper rifle

(try going to chapter 6-1, aim the first manjini on the watch tower,
she will use sniper rifle to aim when the shotgun isnt effective at that range)

however if threat escalates, like normal Manjini to Licker
the AI will select sniper rifle even in Cover mode

against boss she will raise piority even more to magnums
in Cover mode

in Attack mode, AI sheva will pick the weapon of highest piority

Cool thanks for reply guys. I'll keep that in mind when A.I controls sheva :)

I have one question about co-op online.
If I join a game, will the character I play as, use the ammo and weapons I spent so much time collecting when I played single player?

hmm..if I create game and someone joins, they use my stuff I found out.

I had been collecting 3x999 machinegun ammo for one of my upgraded MP5 (took forever to collect that much)
An guy joins and take MP5 + 600 ammo.

He uses like 400 ammo, dies and leaves :o

I want good co-op partner, that safes ammo and with a sense of tatic.

I dont remember weapons being transferable in RE5
unless the other player hacked and stolen your MP5+ ammo

ammo wise is if you voluntarily give away ammo for free

a player this bad playing would be avoided in the reviews, so
I wont see the game he/she host in the game list

I'm not sure if it really happened. It all went so quick, and it was my first online co-op game with RE5.

So if someone joins, only I can use my inventory, and the joined uses his own?

And same goes if I join some games?

yes... it's 2 person's accumulated inventory

each player use their own inventory

but weapons in the field/mission is still free to pick up
(don't allow coop play if you are trying to gather weapons)

you would not be able to transfer weapon once it's picked
from the box

you can transfer ammo and first aid during the mission
incase the other player ran low on ammo or you happened to picked
up ammo for a gun which you never use

(ammo and first aid transfer is only "given")

the person who is giving the ammo/first aid have the rights to refuse

most of the time in coop play I would turn infinite ammo on/
join game with infinite ammo since the other player can pick
whatever amount of ammo he/she like

(so does weapons... actually I would be using "spare arms"
since there is a main stash of all fully upgraded weapons
which I kept in my inventory as back-ups)

Usual Loadouts is (for infinite ammo missions)
1) S75 Rifle
2) M29 Magnum
3) Rocket Launcher
8) Melee Vest
9) Ballistic Vest

otherwise choosing game which i play as Sheva is next best since
the longbow is infinite ammo regardless of server setting

Thanks :)
That helped me to underaatnd this game more.

One more question here:
Is there any way to get the A.I to help you make an combo melee attack?
I just reached an oil platform, and then this chainsaw dude appears to claim my life.
I shhot him two times in the head. Run up to him and punch him with a hook. But the A.I is just watching me. Is there some kind of trick to get her to aid you with an combo hand-to-hand attack?

unfortunately no... the AI is only good at
1) good marksmanship in stealing your kills
2) good ammo wasting person

give her the S75 rifle... since it deals heavy damage and fires slowly, scope is tricky to handle while aiming

so her near-perfect marksmanship will make use of the high powered ammo, while you wont have a problem with feeding her ammo
since it fires slowly


oilfield in the marsh land

strategy for that map is using the land mine... plant it on the platform area where the chainsaw manjini is jumping up

the moment he landed the mine will explode, giving you time to escape

for the one in the 2nd cage where he kick open the locked door... simply stun and run into the next area... hopefully he's slow

first round i played by stunning the chainsaw guy... simply not enough firepower to stop them

accumulate grenades, flash and incendery and try to slow him a
bit... explosion might eventually kill, but chances is rare when supply is low

conserve ammunitions such as 9mm... dont bother wasting on that beast

Yes, there is. Once the chainsaw guy got punched by Chris, run pass him by keep running forward, and as long as the chainsaw guy is still recovering from that punch, Sheva will combo it when she runs across him while following you behind.

Can anyone help me fight against SPOILER*Jill and Wesker at the same time in chapter 5.3*SPOILER lol?

The A.I sheva is really annoying. Wesker strangeling me, while she just watch 1meter away and doing nothing :)

Its my 1st time playthrough. So after Jill and Wesker have taken care off, I will finish the game on my own right after. If thats okay with you.

EDIT: Don't need help anymore. Somehow I managed to beat this jill&Wesker chapter 5.3 with the A.I controlling Sheva. Think it was more luck tho.

Chapter 5-3 super easy boss fight

replay chapter 3-1 beginning and search the sunken ship for rocket launcher

go and play 5-3

right when the boss fight restart and take rocket launcher
from inventory (unless you wish to carry it from beginning of 5-3)

the locked door which wesker kicked you in... go on up

take the L.Hawk magnum... some jewels and herbs

at some point weaker will say "there is no point in hidding"
[it means wesker has lost track of you and is vulnurable to 1st attack]

sneak up to him with rocket launcher, watch for jill as rocket blast
instantly kills her

if you caught wesker by surprise
wesker will catch a rocket instead of dodging it
take a shotgun/ pistol and shoot the rocket so it explodes

it instantly deals 30,000 damage to weaker and halt the 7 minute game
immediately

(if you miss wesker with the rocket launcher... fear not... restart game
all you need to do in the fight is feed the rocket to wesker)

if you sucessfully cut the game by damaging wesker enough, you will unlock
"heart of africa" in the centre area in between the staircase
it sells for 10,000 gold


to call a AI for help... press V (default config)
it shouts for help/ call for partner "come on"

I just beated the game yesterday. One of the best games I've played and enjoyed in a long time.
Now I'm just begging one of my friends to buy RE5, and to be my co-op partner, in my second attempt of playing this game again :)

highly recommend you farm chapter 3-1 start and collect the golds and valuables

fully upgrade any gun and farm for infinite ammo first

(I started with upgrading a P226 first since it's cheap and has high firepower among all pistols)

then buy another p226 and throw it to sheva... she will never ran out of ammo again

I upgraded all my weapons during my first play through. It took me around 40 hours before I completed the game lol. But thats because I wanted to upgrade all my weapons.
And the only way to do that, was to farm chapter 3-1. In that chapter you can make 10.000 in less than 2:30.

Now I've beated the game. So I dont need to farm the hallway with lickers, as many people is suggesting :)

Now that I have all the 100% upgraded weapons, I dont need to worry about farming gold anymore.

the licker chapter is the least enemies...
not to farm gold... but easiest to farm points

i can farm like 2000 points in veteran in approx 5 minutes

least distance to cover, least enemies to kill
and easiest boss

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4Avq0gA16Y
i cleared in amateur mode... but with magnum and rocket launcher
5-1 is chicken feet

S rank in veteran mode is 2000 points as opposed to 1000 in amateur

I've now tryed co-op with an friend.

I must admit I prefer playing it solo. Sure its fun for once having a good partner, and also fun to come up with plans.

But playing it with an IRL person just takes away some of the "scareness" of this game for me.

When you play solo, you simply rely on yourself, and you have no1 to talk to. And because of that, the game gets a bit more "serious", and finding out for yourself how to make the best of it.
