The Browning HP is a weapon in the Resident Evil 2 prototype.[1]


The handgun takes up one block of inventory space. It uses 9mm Parabellum Bullets, which can be reloaded into the gun manually by combining the two together. It can also be reloaded automatically by the character if the player has bullets in their inventory after emptying the clip.[1]

The handgun does light damage to enemies. Crows will die with one direct shot, while other enemies have a much higher resistance.[1]


Leon starts the game with the gun in his inventory.[1]

Further notesEdit

  • The gun is based on the Browning Hi-Power.
  • In the retail version of Resident Evil 2, Claire Redfield uses the Browning HP after finding it in the glove box of an R.P.D. patrol car.
