Here, the protagonist will find himself face to face with monstrous creatures and other dangers capable of putting even the most experienced players to the test: you can overcome all the pitfalls without too many problems with the help of our tips.
A PARADE EXTENDS LIFE
To survive the horrors of the Resident Evil 4 remake, it is essential to master Leon’s defensive techniques as soon as possible to avoid the risk of suffering a lot of damage from enemies. Side dodging is especially useful for avoiding being hit by objects that will often be thrown at you, while an opponent’s attack can be parried by simply holding down the key used for dodging.
To perform a counterattack and damage the zombies, it is instead necessary to use the parry with the right timing; in doing so, your attackers will be stunned for a few seconds, and you can eliminate them with a powerful final blow.
A WEAPON FOR EVERY OCCASION
If the knife is an excellent tool to defend yourself from the undead, firearms allow you to eliminate any threat you will encounter quickly. To maximize the damage inflicted on the enemies, it is advisable to aim at their weak points: in the case of zombies, you will do well to always aim at the head, while during the boss fights, keep an eye on the vulnerable areas of the body, as well as explosive barrels that can be exploited to your advantage.
In any case, try to be precise when using weapons to avoid wasting ammunition. Remember that shotguns are more effective in close quarters, unlike the sniper rifle, which is perfect for hitting from a distance.
THE MIX OF HEALING HERBS
Even in the Resident Evil 4 remake, healing herbs are vital for survival, considering that they can be used to restore Leon’s health. Combining green, yellow, and red herbs is possible to recover more energy and obtain a permanent increase in health, and experimenting with different combinations according to your needs.
Having the most influential mixes available is essential when facing bosses or challenging game sections. Alternatively, using healing sprays also helps regenerate Leon’s energy.
BUY FROM THE MERCHANT
If you find yourself short on cash, in addition to eliminating the crows to get your hands on a few more Pesatas, the Merchant will be happy to buy your goods, such as jewels, which will have a relatively high value.
A LOOK AT THE SETTINGS
Resident Evil 4 Remake offers various settings that allow you to customize the gaming experience as you like and, in some cases, even to make it easier for those who could be better survival horror experts.
Suppose you are looking for a not-too-demanding challenge. In that case, we advise you to select the Assisted difficulty, which will make things easier for you, with the activation of the aim assist and the presence of some advantages such as lower merchant prices, a more significant number of ammo dispositions, and automatic health recovery when Leon’s health is everyday; however, you can also enable automatic weapon reloading and change the button layout from the options menu.
A WELL-ORDERED INVENTORY
In the game’s early stages, you will have to deal with a relatively limited inventory in which you will have to store weapons, healing items, and even many bullets. Fortunately, you can expand the space of your briefcase by visiting the Merchant and purchasing the relative upgrade by investing 10,000 Pesetas. This way, the capacity will increase significantly, and you can insert more guns and various consumables.
By pressing a unique key, it is also possible to automatically reorder the contents of the inventory, thus recovering a lot of space after using some objects or consuming ammunition. Finally, remember that you can get various bonuses by equipping the briefcase with up to three key rings, with advantages ranging from the greater effectiveness of healing herbs to the possibility of obtaining discounts from the Merchant.
BETWEEN TRAPS AND SECRETS
There are many dangers that Leon will have to face during his adventure, some of which are linked to the settings in which he will set foot. For example, the game scenarios present various bear traps from which it is better to keep away and string bombs that you can deactivate by approaching them cautiously or hitting them with a projectile. Likewise, you can use all these lethal gadgets to eliminate zombies and other hostile creatures quickly.
Keep your eyes peeled as the levels hide different secrets, such as keys to open drawers and treasures to find for exclusive rewards. Breaking crates and other scenario elements instead will allow you to recover various resources, such as coins, healing herbs, and bullets for weapons.
