* ScrappyWeapon: Proximity Mines. Though they have some use in Story mode (usually by leading bosses and strong enemies on them), in Mercenaries they are next to useless since you need to do melee anyway and you can't even use them to clear the mob in a pinch. And in Versus, if you happen to be seen placing them, the enemy player can detonate them by shooting [[HoistByHisOwnPetard while you are still close]]. This added to the fact that good players won't be caught stepping on them anyway, since it's easy to tell the set mines from the dropped ones. Further, they only sell for 30 even though they cost 1500 to buy, making them even ''more'' of a waste of time. On the other hand, a strategically-placed proximity mine can kill large groups of Majini at once in Mercenaries.

Though they have some use in Story mode (usually by leading bosses and strong enemies on them), them or setting up for groups you know will be there in reruns), in Mercenaries they are next to useless, with melees giving you more time on kill, and taking a while to set up for little payoff, as far as comboing goes. In mercenaries you might be able to use one or two while on the run from a horde, but in verses they are next to useless since as it's obvious when one has been set where you need to do melee anyway and you can't even use them to clear might step on it as well as the mob in a pinch. And in Versus, if you happen to be seen placing them, the enemy player can detonate them by shooting [[HoistByHisOwnPetard possibility of it being shot while you are still close]].

** Lickers, as par for the series' course. Their regular claw attacks pack quite a punch, their tongue spear holds its victim in place, perfect for others of its kin to start a CycleOfHurting, and if you miss the [[ActionCommands button prompt]] that repels their leap attack, you are guaranteed to die unless helped by your partner, [[OneHitKill no matter how much health you have]]. To put the cherry on the cake's icing, they ''always'' show up in packs.

Now you can buy and use them before the level, but they're one of the more expensive grenade ammo, and once again you're lucky if you know about them before hand.

Added DiffLines:

** Heavy metal Chris can be added to the list of top tier mercenaries characters. The simplest reason is that the stun rod counts as a melee, so getting kills with it will add to your timer, in addition an infinite ammo Gatling gun which can be used to get a quick kill, pepper boss monsters, and protects Chris's back at all times. Unlike Wesker or Rebecca, his actual melees aren't top tier, so he has to mostly rely on the stun rod for timer inflation, but even that means he's at an advantage against exposed parasites.

** Rebecca. Yep, [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_r1ykeCIP4Fo/SwEA62DJBtI/AAAAAAAAABU/r6QXGlWK9vs/s1600/RE2.jpeg that]] Rebecca. With an auto shotgun that can one shot most enemies and a [=MP5=] for long range work, a good player can kill everything before time runs out.

to:

*** In Verses mode Midnight Wesker becomes even worse. Normally the Handcannon in his set would be used to quickly dispatch a boss, or just just get a kill to keep up the combo in desperate situations, before going back to handgun and melee attacks, however since you can shoot other players to damage and kill them in both Slayer (PVE focus) and Survival (PVP focus) it becomes a lot more useful to take a single, deadly potshot at your enemy.
** Rebecca. Yep, [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_r1ykeCIP4Fo/SwEA62DJBtI/AAAAAAAAABU/r6QXGlWK9vs/s1600/RE2.jpeg that]] Rebecca. With an auto shotgun that can one shot most enemies and a [=MP5=] for long range work, a good player can kill everything before time runs out. In addition two of her melee options, flamethrower and tear gas [[note]] head stun and frontal arm stun melees respectively [[/note]], are excessively good for combos, both having a very wide range with flamethrower doing good damage and tear gas being useful in emergencies to clear some room if you don't have the shotgun out.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: Capcom responded to the accusations of racism and UnfortunateImplications leveled toward the game in a variety of ways. Along with the addition of Sheva, the game makes it clear very early on that the [[{{Mooks}} Majini]] you're gunning down are as much victims of the outbreak as the heroes, being infected with horrific {{Puppeteer Parasite}}s and driven to madness against their will. The [[ApocalypticLog journal of a young boy]] you find in the swamplands only drives the point home, as he watches his tribe completely fall apart due to Tricell's mechanations before succumbing to the infection himself.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Sheva generally is very polarizing with most ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' fans. To some, she's a typical bland, one-dimensional, and uninteresting character whose main purpose in the game is to be EyeCandy and to push the new "partner" system in the game (which, judging by how the AI was negatively received, failed in that regard). A large number of fans also were quite disappointed [[spoiler:she got to assist Chris in finishing off Wesker; an honor that many believed she was undeserving of and should have gone to Jill]]. There's also a those who believe she was created simply to respond to the racism allegations surrounding the game before release. [[note]]And even in that regard [[ButNotTooBlack she's controversial]]. [[/note]] On the other hand, Sheva also has a few supporters who liked her characterization as a loyal soldier who had been pushed into a situation that was way over her head. She is completely locked out of Chris and Wesker's history and provides a fresh perspective against the monsters that Chris is so jaded with fighting.

** Josh Stone is becoming quite popular since the game's release. Reasons include his accent, his knack to save Chris and Sheva multiple times, especially from [[spoiler:Jill Valentine]], the spectacular wrestling moves he performs in the Mercenaries Reunion Mode, and the fact that [[spoiler:he's the only minor character in the whole game that makes it out alive]] and [[spoiler:was there to save Jill Valentine after she was released from Wesker's mind control and piloted the helicopter to rescue Sheva and Chris along with her]]. By the way, did you know that he's [[MemeticMutation A LEGEND]]!!!
