    - Use this guide to know what you are up against and where the healing items are.

    [Wesker] S Rank Difficulty: ***** (*Start with Knife only)
    - Unlock Wesker by completing Chris's Battle Game
    - Watch the video to find out where to get a Magnum.
    - Watch huoshao524 (the video uploader) wisely spend 2 magnum rounds on explosives to waste zombies.
    - Watch huoshao524 defeat Alexia with 4 magnum rounds and 2 knife slashes.
    - Aim for the legs. One strike to the legs counts as two hits. Be aware the range of slashing down is smaller than slashing straight.
    - To make a zombie fall, slash straight on its torso and then slash down on its legs.

    ### From the comments, I heard about the Magnum missing from the cabinet for people who did not take a "diary" at the very same place on previous runs with any characters. Be on your toes, folks. ###

    [Claire (Bow Gun)] S Rank Difficulty: ***** (*6 minutes / 18 rooms = 20s per room)
    - Unlock Claire (Bow Gun) with the Battle Game mode itself by completing the Main Game.
    - Watch the video. (credits: HKGoldenMrA)
    - Do not pick up any healing items. Claire has plenty and time is short.
    - Fire away against zombie hordes. Don't be precise and slow.

    [Chris] S Rank Difficulty: **** (*Alexia 3 is highly mobile)
    - Unlock Chris with the Battle Game mode itself by completing the Main Game
    - Watch HKGoldenMrA (the video uploader) corner Alexia 3 and makes short work of her.

    [Steve] S Rank Difficulty: ***
    - Unlock Steve by obtaining the Lugar Replica from the Main Game in the tank-underground save room. You need NOT be carrying it when the game ends. Just put it in the item box.
    - Watch kaneochang (video uploader) fire away with the sub-machine gun.

    [Claire (Grenade Launcher)] S Rank Difficulty: **
    - Watch the video. (credits: HKGoldenMrA)

    TVthePunisherFor anyone who still wants to work on this I have to say that a trick picked up from the A rank guide is a MASSIVE help here as Wesker.

    You want to let zombies grab you. Sounds crazy right? Not with the wiggle stick and mash A combo. When you get the timing down the zombies will grab you and you’ll throw them off without getting bit. Entire hordes can be cleared without getting damaged if you are patient with the timing. You can still swipe at the legs if you wish just quickly prepare if they come in for a grab. I would typically be spinning the stick BEFORE the grab and mashing A to guarantee success.

    This will help minimize damage to enemies like the Hunters, Sweepers and Bandersnatches.

    Also Side note but for some reason my Alexia tanked 5 magnum shots so I had to finish her off with one swipe of the knife lol a bit too scary for my liking.

    Pud MasterI just beat it with Wesker and got the Linear Launcher, and I have to specifically thank @TVthePunisher for his comment about HOW to push a zombie off of you before he bites you. I thought you had to rotate the joystick while mashing both the X & A buttons, but my results were wildly inconsistent. Just rotating the joystick while ONLY mashing the A button has a much higher success rate. So if you ever read this TVthePunisher, thank you for that extremely helpful tidbit of information. Also thank you to OP for making this little guide for each character and the achievement.

    I just want to mention that getting the diary or the magnum has nothing to do with if you have already gotten the diary before. I had only gone in that room one time before with Claire and gotten a First-Aid Spray, before I realized how tight her time limit was. After that, I never went into that room again until I was doing Wesker’s run, in which I got the magnum and completed the challenge. To clarify, I’ve only gone in the room two times total, never gotten the diary with any character, but still got the magnum with Wesker. It’s completely random, which makes sense since it’s a slot machine.

    UnaturalizedI think the time requirement for Steve may be wrong since I just got an A rank with him while clearing it at 9:37

    Just for a heads up to those who follow the videos listed in the other solutions. For Wesker there is no time limit for a cut-off for an A rank. You just have to finish and survive. However in order to get the Magnum from the lottery machine or whatever it is you must be there as close to 8 minutes as you can. If not you get a diary instead and the magnum you need for the Alexia fight. 5 shots is all you need so take your time and make them count.

    I thought that you had to Wesker's within 10 minutes (as in the first solution in the Wesker video). Otherwise I would have had this done forever ago.

    The other characters are pretty easy since you have unlimited ammo for their best guns. Just watch the vids.
