The Evil Within Item and Weapon Guide

Item and Weapon Guide


  • An object that can be thrown to distract enemies.

Green Gel

  • The Evil Within's form of currency. It's often found in green jars and on dead enemies.


  • The Evil Within is a very dark game, but the lantern helps illuminate the environment. Just don't rely on it too much, or you leave yourself open to attacks.


  • Matches are used to burn enemies when they are on the ground, and it's the only way to ensure they are completely defeated. There are also some obstacles along the way that require matches.

Medical Kit

  • Like any simple medical kit, it heals the player.


  • Another healing item, though it proves more effective than the Medical Kit. Be wary though, as using multiple syringes in a short amount of time lessens its effectiveness and causes screen distortion.
