CQC FTW Trophy/Achievement – How to Beat Resident Evil HD Remaster with Just the Knife

Resident Evil HD Jill

When I first saw that the new Resident Evil HD remake had a Trophy for getting through the entire game while only using the knife (it’s called “CQC FTW”), I thought it sounded damn near impossible. Between the awkward controls (I always play using the original control scheme) and the ineffectiveness of the knife, this seemed like a challenge for crazy people.

Lo and behold, I stumbled upon an annotated walkthrough on YouTube by user Carcinogen, which makes the thing look pretty easy.

He made the video using the GameCube version of the game, which the HD remaster is based on. That means that — while I haven’t tested this yet myself — if you follow these instructions, you should hypothetically pop the Trophy (as well as a few others while you’re at it.)

Go for it!
