II: Evaluate Everything
Resident Evil Revelations Raid Mode will tax you for the smallest mistake made.
The first thing that you need to do is evaluate your album after each stage you complete. I figured out that if you’re low level, you’ll want to have as many weapons as you can get your hands on. If you get duplicate weapons, you can sell them, and you’re going to make a fortune. You’ll pay to evaluate albums, but you’ll get much more money in the long run.
I’ve discovered that there are 7 colors that define the rarity of albums: Rainbow is the rarest, and then, going down, in order are Purple, Red, Blue, Green, Gold, and Black.
These are the star ratings for albums which mainly describe how rare, and powerful it is. The more stars, the better the color, the efficient the album. You can either evaluate albums at the Jukebox in the Vestibule, or sell them at the same place. You’ll get money regardless if you evaluate or not. The un-evaluated albums seem to rack up most moneys.
- Rainbow has 3 stars.
- Purple has 2 and 2 and a half stars.
- Red has 2 stars.
- Blue has 1 and 1 and a half stars.
- Green has 1 star.
- Gold has half a star.
- Black doesn’t have stars.
The drop rate for the rarest albums is completely random, and they can drop only while playing missions.
The stuff that you’ll use, and will also be useful, will come from chests, and random drops throughout the game. You have the option to buy weapons, and such from the in-game store, but I highly advise against doing so. Mainly because you’ll be just throwing away your gold.
As a side note, sometimes weapons being sold in the in-game store will come packed with parts.
