Resident Evil 2 Remake’s zombies are tough customers, with their thick skulls able to soak up a clip and their skin able to break a knife. Thankfully, knife science has come a long way since 2019, and Resident Evil 3 Remake’s knives are going to be made of hardier stuff. 

The original games didn’t have this problem, but for the remake Capcom decided to make them defensive weapons, used to stop Leon or Claire from becoming zombie chow. They could still kind of be used offensively, but they were really just there for emergencies.
