    Ghost of a Chance

    To unlock invisible enemy mode you must beat the story with Jill and Chris on the save file (meaning when beating the game load the game then choose the next character on the same load) and then Hard MUST be finished too. Either that or beating it on Real Survival will unlock invisible enemy mode. Once you do either of those 2 requirements it will be under Real survival mode when loading the file.

    When you start up the Invisible enemy mode you can do easy to make this the easiest. If you did it on Hard then it would possibly even be harder than True Survival mode (possibly).

    So to start you off I want to say don't make the mistake I did, I attempted Invisible Enemy mode, only using my knife(CQC FTW achievement), under 3 hours (which can work if you are only using a knife), AND my biggest mistake, without saving (Ink is for squids). I got past what I thought was the hardest part having invisible enemies (LISA) to underestimate the Fuel capsule that blew up in my face right in front of where I had to insert it 10 minutes away from finishing the game.

    So make sure when you do this achievement, to not mix it with the wrong achievements.

    The video I used is in this solution:

    Resident EvilCQC FTWThe CQC FTW achievement in Resident Evil worth 132 pointsFinish the game using only your knife (no lighter, Defensive Items, and stomping zombie heads).


    The basic idea is to just run past everything. The bosses and Crimson head put up quite the fight not being able to see them, or use guns for that matter, so this is why I recommend at least having guns or being able to save while doing this.

    If you want to use guns the video below is for you done by Shirrako and does it right under 2 hours giving you plenty of breathing space to make mistakes or watch some of the video first.

    Be careful: When you pause your game it does not stop the in-game time, when you start a speed-run you cannot pause the game constantly and expect a good time. You can either play the game while watching the video (which is what I did) or you can save, quit, watch video, start up again and play until you get to another save spot with what you watched.

    A good tip to know is that there is always hints or ways to see the invisible enemies, The bosses are the ones you need to really pay attention, everything else, you can basically just run past (except the 1 crimson head).

    spacedvest2Mental, if you played survivor instead of hard with the IRL, the mode would have unlocked for sure. You wouldn't have to worry about the save file crap.

    Mental Knight 5You've made that abundantly clear, spacedvest2. I played Hard with the IRL because I enjoyed it and it wasn't stressful, and I don't know if I'll ever succeed at RS or feel like trying anytime soon. I would like to try Invisible Enemy on Easy though. If Raezie is correct, it will unlock when I do Chris Normal (IRL) as my No Save run. I still say my saves should be fine if I have the Chris/Jill achievement and costume achievement.

    spacedvest2I don't know if this helps, but I didn't think RS was that bad. You are just running from most zombies all the time. The only thing that I thought was annoying about it is how the box inventories aren't linked.

    The JoelstrI know you can't use the rocket launcher on survival mode but can you use it on IE mode?

    Das KuhnenSpecial weapons are only available to use in once again mode, not IE nor Real Survival.

    SpectrixMy experience with invisible enemies was interesting. Did it with knife only run - died only on 2 occasions - the first crimson head I went in with only 2 healing items and he trucked me. Went back with 4 and it was fine. I never killed a single hunter - even the one by the emblem key room.

    I died also once on Tyrant. I stabbed him 3 or 4 times and he killed me. Trying to conserve on healing even though I had a full inventory of FA SPRAYs.

    Overall it's not too bad especially if you've done a speed run. My knife only invisible enemy run took just under 3 hours with chris. It's not overly difficult if you have a good idea of the layout of the game.

    Solid SnakeNet2On Xbox One version, I've unlocked IE without play on Real Survivor nor Hard Mode. But I've get on Once More the 3 hours playthought with Jill and then the achievement of all map visited (normal) with Chris.

    RIVE XNGLEI unlocked IE after one campaign with Chris (Normal; Under 5 Hours), and one campaign with Jill (Normal; Under 3 Hours; No Saves) on the same file. Hard and Real Survival are not necessary.
