The Battle Game is a mini-game featured in Resident Evil CODE:Veronica.
Upon completing the main game in CODE:Veronica, a blank screen displaying the text "Battle Game!!" will be shown after the final results screen. The mini-game can then be selected from the main menu.
The player is given 5 different characters to choose from as they're taken through an unrelated series of rooms and timed on how long it takes them to defeat the B.O.W.s within. Each character has a different set of items to work with, adding unique difficulty levels to each chosen character. Each character is given unlimited ammunition for their weapons.
The mini-game plays much more similarly to the Battle Game in Resident Evil and the "Showdown" matches in Resident Evil Outbreak File #2, rather than other battle mini-games in the series, such as The Mercenaries or Extreme Battle.

The game is played on one set series of rooms with one set pattern of enemies however, each character fights their own specific boss at the end. Every boss fought except for the Tyrant T-078 is the same room they were fought as in the main game.
In the 13th room, there is a slot machine in which the player can get a random item. It will either be D.I.J.'s Diary or an specific items for that character.

Upon completing the game, the player gets a specific results screen for the character they picked and a rank of A, B, C, D, E, or no rank based on their performance.
A first-person viewpoint option can be unlocked for this mode by killing Nosferatu in the main game with Alfred Ashford's Sniper Rifle and acquiring the special cutscene where Claire shoots his heart out, and then completing the game.
The Linear Launcher can be unlocked for the minigame by completing it with every character and getting an A rank. This is also the requirement for the "Battle Master" award in the HD port of the game.
PAL Conversion Problem
In order to get the A rank in Battle Game, the player needs to complete each character's mission under a very specific time.
Due to the 50 Hz limitations at the time, the PAL version of the game is running slower than NTSC and JAP releases, however, the timer in Battle Mode has the very same settings as the one from NTSC versions.
While this is not really problematic in the normal game, Battle Mode suffer from this conversion, resulting in an almost impossible time attack for PAL players for some of the characters, such as Another Claire and Chris Redfield.
- On the Sega Dreamcast, PlayStation 2, and GameCube versions of the game, "ID Number" was spelled incorrectly as "ID Nunmber". This was corrected in the HD Remaster version of the game.
