Resident Evil 7 Molded are one of the enemies you’ll fight in the game. They are tough to take down, especially when they gang up on you. The most difficult encounter happens in the Boiler Room. In this guide, we’ll show you how to defeat multiple Molded in RE 7, how to escape Molded.
RE 7 Multiple Molded – How to Defeat Them
Oddly enough, the easiest way to get rid of the Molded is to be a pacifist. In the Boiler Room, where the most problematic encounter happens, there are doors. Molded can’t open them. Additionally, there’s enough room for you to run around the Molded. Simply make your way around them, close the door behind you, and you’re safe. This will save you a lot of trouble and ammo. Besides, after you complete a certain part of the story, the Molded will respawn, so it’s debatable if killing them is worth it.
If you really want (or need) to take the Molded down, there are several ways to do so. The easiest way is to get the shotgun. To do that, get the Broken Shotgun and put it in the place of the one you want. Once you have it, unleash it on the Molded. Make sure you focus on one at a time, as you’ll have a much more difficult time otherwise. Try to bottleneck them to make it easier for you, but don’t forget to have an exit strategy. Don’t forget to aim for the head and to block if they try to hit you. Make every shot count, since shotgun ammo is hard to come by.
The other option is to use the handgun. This will take significantly longer, of course, but it’s not impossible. Make sure you have plenty of ammo; that goes without saying. Again, focus on killing one at a time. Scattering your fire and panicking will only lead to wasted ammo. Stay calm and keep shooting. You’ll spend a lot of ammo, but they’ll go down eventually, and you can make more ammo. Again, don’t forget to block when they try to hit you.
If you’re feeling particularly masochistic, or have run out of other options, you can kill them with the knife. Block their attack, hit them once or twice, then block again. Don’t get too greedy, since you’ll leave yourself wide open. Word of caution, though: This will take forever. This time around, it’s essential that you focus on one Molded until it drops. Blocking and fighting in close quarters might help, but be careful not to let them corner you. Always make sure to have an escape route.
