All in-game recipes and what is needed to craft them



Crafting is by no means a new mechanic in Resident Evil, but it has undergone a major overhaul since its introduction in Resident Evil 3 for the PlayStation. Resident Evil Village has the most robust crafting system in the franchise to date. Ethan will need to buy recipes and find all the ingredients needed to craft new items.

Gone are the days of simply smashing gunpowder for ammo. Players will have to choose what they craft, whether or not they waste ammo killing enemies for potential material drops, and what recipes they end up buying. Resident Evil Village isn’t as resource-heavy as previous games, but recipe creation is a great way to keep item management important.

11 First aid

Resident Evil 8 First Aid Med

Returning from Resident Evil 7, players can press R1 / RB to heal themselves with a First Aid Med. Unlike Resident Evil 7, herbs aren’t actually a secondary healing item and are now exclusively a material – so be prepared to craft plenty of first aid meds.

Both Herbs and Chemical Fluid can be found as drops from common enemies while often being hidden throughout level design. There are usually enough herbs and chemical fluid to do a bit of First Aid Med in all of the major areas, but this is where the resource management aspect of crafting comes in.

ten Handgun ammo

Resident Evil 8 LEMI

The Handgun Ammo recipe earns players 15 handgun bullets, which is more than any other ammo recipe in the village. Its material requirements are also light, ensuring that players can at least craft balls.

  • Gunpowder: 2
  • Rusty scrap metal: 2

Gunpowder and Rusted Scrap can be dropped by enemies. Gunpowder tends to spawn more frequently, with rusty scrap metal typically relegated to the upper world (usually by garbage piles).

9 Shotgun ammunition

Resident Evil 8 Shotgun

The Shotgun Ammo recipe makes 3 shotgun shells. While not much, shotguns are more powerful than handguns and will be your main damage dealer inside Castle Dimistrecu castle.

  • Gunpowder: 1
  • Rusty scrap metal: 2
  • Chemical fluid: 1

Since Chem Fluid is needed to craft shotgun ammo, you’ll need to decide how much extra first aid you need. Keep in mind that you will find more shotgun cartridges in the game than First Aid, however.

8 Sniper ammunition

Resident Evil 8 Sniper Ammo

Resident Evil Village’s sniper rifle is exceptional and arguably a little too powerful for its own good. Sniper Ammo recipe makes 4 sniper cartridges and they are surprisingly easy to craft from start to finish.

  • Gunpowder: 2
  • Rusty scrap metal: 1
  • Chemical fluid: 1

Since a maximum sniper rifle is only a little weaker than the Magnum, it pays to invest in sniper ammo. Master the sniper rifle and even the toughest bosses will drop like flies.

7 Explosive rings

Resident Evil 8 explosive cartridges

The Grenade Launcher always stands out as one of the best weapons when it appears in Resident Evil, typically taking different types of ammo and dealing massive damage. The Explosive Rounds recipe offers players 2 explosive rounds.

  • Gunpowder: 1
  • Metal Scrap: 1
  • Grass: 1

You’ll have to give up an herb as part of your crafting, but Explosive Cartridges are extremely powerful and use so little gunpowder or scrap metal that the tradeoff is well worth it. Filling up on explosives is one of the best ways to prepare for hardcore.

6 Flash Rounds

Resident Evil 8 Grenade Launcher

The Flash Rounds recipe makes 2 Flash Rounds which can be used to stun enemies. While explosive bullets are more useful (and don’t require valuable chemical fluid to craft), flash bullets serve their purpose.

  • Chemical fluid: 1
  • Rusty scrap metal: 1
  • Grass: 1

A well-placed Flash Round can allow you to escape a horde of enemies without having to waste extra ammo. It loses its value when you unlock infinite ammo in the bonus shop, but the flash spin also stuns enemies – which is useful for mini-bosses.

5 Magnum ammunition

Resident Evil 8 Magnum Ammunition

The Magnum has a reputation for being one of the last guns players unlock in Resident Evil games, while requiring more ammo management than other guns. This also applies to Village, but on a lesser scale.

  • Gunpowder: 4
  • Rusty scrap metal: 1
  • Metal Scrap: 1

RELATED: Resident Evil Village: All Crafting Recipes

The Magnum recipe only yields 3 Magnum bullets, but that’s three guaranteed kills on lesser enemies. While using 4 gunpowder is expensive, it’s at least one of the more common materials in the game.

4 Pipe bomb

Resident Evil 8 Pipe Bomb

The Pipe Bomb is a deceptively useful weapon that will tear apart most enemies, and is essential for smashing armored Lycans that start spawning during the back half of the match.

  • Gunpowder: 2
  • Rusty scrap metal: 1
  • Chemical fluid: 1

Pipe Bombs also have the benefit of taking down any enemies in the general vicinity, which is the perfect way to create openings on higher difficulties.

3 To exploit

Mine Resident Evil 8

Much like pipe bombs, mines are very powerful and are a great choice for breaking enemy armor. Unlike pipe bombs, mines must be placed, not thrown.

  • Rusty scrap metal: 1
  • Metal Scrap: 1

Due to the abundance of rusty and metal scraps in the game, you will almost always be able to craft mines. They are also very easy to use – just grab the attention of an enemy from a distance, drop the mine and watch them explode.

2 Rifle ammunition

Resident Evil 8 Rifle Ammo

Rifle ammo recipe is locked on post-match, as you must first purchase an assault rifle from the bonus shop. In a normal game, you will only be able to use a rifle when playing as Chris.

  • Grass: 1
  • Rusty scrap: 2
  • Metal Scrap: 1

The Rifle Ammo recipe creates 20 rifle rounds, but eats an herb that is best spent elsewhere. It’s also worth noting that Bonus Shop guns aren’t very useful in the grand scheme of things.

1 Rocket ammunition

Resident Evil 8 Rocket Pistol

Just like the Rifle Ammo Recipe, the Rocket Pistol Ammo Recipe is locked on post-match since you must first purchase the Rocket Pistol from the Bonus Shop. The recipe creates 5 Rocket Pistol ammo.

  • Grass: 1
  • Rusty scrap: 2
  • Metal Scrap: 1

Unfortunately, the Rocket pistol is not that useful. While this makes the replay of the game interesting at the combat level, the Rocket Pistol is not as fun to use as the other weapons and starts to dwindle by the end of the game. It is novelty more than anything.
