Our interactive map has the locations of all the secrets and puzzles.

Resident Evil 4 Remake: Guide content

The most important section of the guide is the focusing on secrets and collectibles. Its essential part is a page with information on how to unlock all weapons and gadgets. You will also learn about optional puzzles and the locations of secret items (such as various crystals). We also point out where you can encounter the trader and what things he offers.

The FAQ section of the guide has answers to frequently asked questions. From it you can learn, e.g. how to save the game, whether it is possible to return to previous locations, whether Ashley can die, whether it is possible to repair or replace the knife, how to kill the Regenerator, and whether it is possible to increase the inventory.

In a separate subsection, we have included descriptions of boss fights - you will learn about their unique attacks, weaknesses and recommended tactics. The section ends with a description of the final boss. In the chapter on basics, you will find combat tips, hints on map exploration, and tips on how to play as Ashley and how to escort her when playing as Leon.

Besides the main chapters, the guide also includes an appendix, where we have included a trophy guide - you will learn about the requirements for achievements and how to unlock the platinum trophy. Other pages of the appendix cover such topics as the controls, the contents of the collector's edition, PC system requirements or how long Resident Evil 4 Remake is.

Resident Evil 4 Remake: Quick beginner's guide

  1. Explore the locations carefully. You can find various supplies, collectibles and valuables. Some treasures are hidden in containers - you have to destroy them first.
  2. Use the knife wisely. The remake introduces a major change - the knife can lose durability and become irreparably damaged. An alternative to knife attacks are, for example, kicks.
  3. You don't have to defeat every enemy. In some locations, you don't have to kill all enemies - an example would be the battle in the village at the beginning of the game. You can focus on the mission objective and save your supplies.
  4. Plan your purchases well. Items offered by the merchant can be expensive, and not all of them are that useful. First, buy those that will help you the most to progress.
  5. Always have a few herbs and ammunition. The game features a few larger and more difficult fights, in which you can use up more ammunition and medicine. Always have a few herbs and some ammo supplies in your inventory so that you won't find yourself in a difficult situation.
  6. Aim at opponents' weapons. Try to aim at the weapons carried by enemies in their hands (they may drop them after a shot) and shoot the weapons thrown at Leon before they hit him.
