Run Like the Wind is one of the four possible endings to the "end of the road" scenario of Resident Evil Outbreak File #2. It occurs if the player defeats the renegade Nyx and escapes Raccoon City via the highway, but does not save Linda - "Run Like the Linda" is the elongated version of this scene which plays if Linda was saved.


The military truck's headlights turn on as the engine starts. It smashes through two "Don't enter!" signs as it drives down the highway overpass. The truck escapes the city through a tunnel into the mountains, narrowly escaping the blast from the missiles, though a bright light fills the screen. Elsewhere, at Heaven's Gate, the US military oversees the destruction of Raccoon City.

  • Male 1: "Arrow 2 - direct hit on the target, sir!"
  • Male 2: "Angle 1, both missiles are confirmed hits. Return to base, immediately."
  • Angel 1: "This is Angel 1: roger that."
  • Male 1: "Arrows 7 and 10, direct hits."
  • Male 2: "Both Angel 2 and 3 have emptied their payloads."
  • Female 1: "Arrow 5 correction in hit coordinates 'West 0.5, South 0.1"
  • Angel 6: "This is Angel 6 reporting: confirmed all fighters have emptied their payloads. Mission Code XX complete. Repeat: Mission Code XX complete."
  • Male 2: "This is Heaven's Gate. We got you loud and clear, Angel 6. Mission Code XX is completed. All fighters return to base immediately."
  • Angel 6: "Roger that."
  • Male 1: "Arrow 8, 11. Target confirmation-"

The "bleeps" representing individual mission strikes drowns out the comms. chatter. Elsewhere, outside the city, a number of civilians congregate in-between Rodriguez' helicopter and the truck, where they watch the mushroom cloud rise up from what once was Raccoon City, some eighteen miles down the road.

  • Kevin: "And so the town was gone... just like that - in a quick, empty flash of light. Maybe I'm getting old, but I really don't remember what I was feeling when I saw the town go up in flames. Then again, it's not like I forgot what happened - it's just that I'm the type of guy who focuses on the 'now' and not 'ancient history'."
  • Mark: "I could fill a book with all the regrets and bad memories of those days, but being there surrounded with all that death and decay taught me one important lesson that I didn't even learn in 'Nam. That in the power to protect people, the ones you love lay true valour and righteousness. It's my duty to survive and tell this tale."
  • Jim: "It's like a funky horror movie complete with an explosive climax and a hole under your seat ending. I wouldn't be surprised to hear some narrator's voice - "but the fight was only the beginning..." - but I don't want have to put myself through this kind of zombie shit again. You only get one chance at life..."
  • George: "The memories still linger. I wish I could say this was the obvious price to pay for man trying to play God, but even though I cannot condone such actions, certainly no actions deserve retribution to this extent. However, I did learn one thing, that mankind, myself included, must learn from the mistakes."
  • David: "So, the shit hit the fan and the fan finally busted - that's how Raccoon City came to pass. C'mon, let's face it, life here - even if you aren't surrounded by zombie freaks - there's still plenty of other dangers waiting for ya. So, whatever new crisis comes my way, it's just the same shit on a different day."
  • Alyssa: "Playing it safe may be best, but that's not what I call true living. Fight for what you want. There's always gonna be risks - you may get hurt in the end, but for me, I'd rather die having lived than live without knowing life. And taking the risks that come with life is the only way to truly know it."
  • Yoko: "As the town faded away, my memory came rushing back to me - all of it. There wasn't time to wallow in despair and self-pity, nor had I the right to. It was my time to act - this was my fate, for there remain many tasks that remain tasks which only I can complete."
  • Cindy: "Everything that happened was real. The events that unfolded before my eyes will haunt my dreams for many months to come, but I take solace in knowing that surviving this tragedy has somehow made me a stronger person. Time waits for neither man nor woman, so worrying over past regrets is pointless."
