So I just got to the part where Mr. X starts chasing me around, and boy is he annoying. I want to explore and find ammo/items, but he appears all the damn time so I have to run, and can't get back to those rooms again without him appearing. I have a couple questions that may help down the road. I'm playing as Leon on normal if that's worth noting.
First, and most importantly, does he go away permanently at some point in the story? To the point where I could explore in peace again? If so I may just critical path things until he's gone, then explore all the red rooms I have later. (I personally don't care about spoilers here.)
Second, does he really respond to noise? It seems like he shows up every 30 seconds no matter how quiet I am. I can lead him to one side of the station, then slowly walk back to the other side and avoid all combat. Only to have him appear anyway by the time I walk there.
Basically, I want to scrounge and can't really do that right now. Any thoughts here are appreciated.
