1st Uroboros Boss Tip...
If you run out of bullets, you can circle around Uroboros and slash at its arms with your knife. This is very dangerous so be careful. After you remove his arms, you can then use your knife to finish off the giant sprouting Parasite.
2nd Uroboros Boss Fight Tips
1. Whenever the Flame Thrower runs out of gas, make sure to put it back and circle around the entire room to dodge the Black Tentacle Monster (Uroboros). Every time you pass by the Flame Thrower and the light is still red just continue to run laps around the room. As soon as the light tunrs green pick it up and do your thing.

2. Before using the Flame Thrower make sure that you have already blown Uroboros's arms off. If you decide to burn him while his arms are still attached, then the BTM will strike and take away half of your life.
3 secret jewels
In chapter 1-1 when the horde of majini comes and attacks you defeat the entire horde and the last one will drop a jewel worth 3000.(this is very ammo consuming and when i tried on veteran it did not work so use amateur).

in chapter 1-2 when you fight the first form of uroborus defeat him with your ammo (this means on veteran you can use the furnace once and twice on professional) and he will drop a jewel worth 5000.

when you fight the executioner (axe man) he will drop another jewel worth 5000.
Best chapter to get a lot of money at
If you play through chapter 4-1, the caves, and collect all the treasures including the soul gem at the end from beating the bug enemy, you'll make about 50,000. The level isn't hard to beat and beating it multiple times is good for making money.
Complimentary Ammo...
When you decide to get an Ammo Capacity increase, you get free bullets depending on how much you increased by.
Crazy Chainsaw Dude Tips...
1. Whenever you want to reload, make sure to never do it if he is coming at you. What you want to do is wait until he attacks, move out of the way, and then reload.

2. If you have a Shotgun, get really close to him and right before he is about to attack, shoot him right in the most central part of his body. He will stop, give you a very menacing look and he'll come right back to try to take your head off again. If the shotgun is barely upgraded, it might take about 7 shotgun shots to down Crazy Chainsaw Dude.

3. If you run out of bullets and you can't find a good time to reload because the CCD is breathing down your neck, then set Sheva to 'Attack' right after the CCD attacks and misses. Sheva will attack and the CCD will start chasing after her. Then you can reload and help her out.

4. His weak spot is his one eye so concentrate on shooting his one eye. When he takes a few steps back, make sure to chase after him and give him an uppercut or kick by pressing the Square button. By about the 9th or 10th uppercut or kick the CCD will be dead.

Deciding Who Goes...
Whevener you reach a spot where you have to decide between either Sheva or Chris to go out and do a specific task make sure to do one of the following:

-If you're going to send Chris to do something, make sure that he is equiped with a Shotgun or overall short distance but effective weapon. Sheva should also be set on Attack and is equiped with a Rifle.

-If you're going to send Sheva, make sure that the above is vice-versa...
Destructible Treasure.
I came across this quite by accident, it first happened in chapter 5-2 going through the hallway where the lickers are with an infinite rocket launcher.

If you blow up an enemy that holds a treasure, and the enemy isn't on the ground, the treasure gets destroyed. This works on enemies that are in the air (jumping), or on a ceiling or wall.

The enemy has to be completely blown up so there is no trace of them left, there is a particular blast radius or splash damage area that does not have this effect however.

When fighting an enemy that tends to jump around a lot, or climb, and holds a treasure, then explosive weapons that destroy the enemy completely may not always be the best method of dispatch.
Easy "Who do you trust?" Trophy

eat eggs zombies
equip a rotten egg then throw it to a zombies face they will die if they dont use 2 but u can sell the egg for a good price ;]
Fast way to get money
During the Jill fight in chapter 5-3, if you make Wesker leave, the heart of africa, a treasure, will appear between the stairs when you fight Jill alone. It sells for 10,000. Now, collect it, pause, and choose quit. Save your inventory, and then go to play game and continue. You'll be at the Jill/Wesker fight again, but you'll have to make Wesker leave again to get the heart of africa again. With the infinite launcher, though, you can do it very fast. Keep collecting the heart of africa, then sell them all, you'll get a lot of money.
Giant Bat-Worm Boss Fight #2 Tips
1. Don't even bother shooting at his tail like you did in the first encounter. Just run right up the stairs and the animations will just take place at very awkward intervals.

2. If you're playing by yourself, then set Sheva to Attack and make sure to shoot at the GB-W in the head to distract it while Sheva is unloading on it's tail, or if the GB-W decides to go after Sheva just shoot the GB-W in the tail yourself...
How to get lots of money easily
Go to Chapter 5-2 on Amateur Mode, and play all the way to the part where you come across hoardes of Lickers.
It should checkpoint that small area.
Kill all the Lickers in that area.
You will get 5 Lion Heart treasures (which equel 12,500 in gold).
Then just repeat as many times as you want.
Each time it will only take around 4 minutes to kill them all.
Strong weapons are needed (Shotgun, Explosives, etc).

Also, doing it on Co-op is easier.
Irving (Giant Sea Serpent) Boss Tip
If you're playing Resident Evil 5 by yourself, make sure to station Sheva on the North-Eastern most turret. Make sure to set her to 'Attack' then you can sit back, relax and pretty much do nothing while Sheva literally takes out the boss from start to finish.
Kill all of the Lickers...
In the level where there's a lot of Lickers caged inside glass walls don't skip them by passing through the area quietly. Instead kill all of them and make sure to pick up all of the treasures left over (I think the treasure left over is called a Lions Heart). You can sell all of the treasures earned for some serious cash to pick up all of the stats on your weapons or buy supplies...

Grenade Launcher Duplication
In chapter 4-1, after the interactive cutscene where the statues fall down the corridor, collect the grenade launcher. Quit and save your items. When you go to continue it will start you off before the interactive cutscene and you can collect another grenade launcher. Do this as many times as you like... the treasures and barrels will also remain (barrels change contents for each load) in the level and a base grenade launcher sells for $1,000. So have fun getting gold and upgraded your arsenal.
Level Glitch
When playing online with someone, make sure that you are on a higher level than what you were on in your Single Player game. If you disconnect accidentally or on purpose (it worked by accident for me), when you play Single Player you will be on that exact level that you played on, therefore skipping the rest.

Note: It worked for me when I was on 1-1 and played with someone on 3-1. So try to stick to 1-1, 2-1, 3-1, 4-1, 5-1, and 6-1.

Rotten Egg Glitch
This is by far the easiest and fastest way to obtain a ton of money.

1. Obtain a rotten egg.
2. Host a game and have the rotten egg(s) in your slot.
3. Invite a friend.
4. Start, then give your friend the RE (rotten egg) and make him leave.
5. Get the RE from your computer partner, and quit the game.
6. Start the game and invite the same friend.
7. Have your friend give YOU the rotten egg and tell them to quit but DO NOT save their equipment.
8. Quit the game and invite the same friend. He will have a RE as well.
9. Repeat steps 2-7 to have 5REs in each of the nine available slots of your friend.
10. Start the game and have your friend give you all 45REs and quit but DO NOT save equipment.
11. When he comes back into your party after you reinvite him, you both will have 45REs. Deposit your 45REs and repeat step 10.
12. Keep doing this and sell all but one of your REs and repeat steps 1-11.

This will get all of your weapons upgraded in no time.

Have fun!
