Walkthrough Resident Evil 4 (2023) - all bosses, treasures, weapons and puzzles

Resident Evil 4 Remake is the game that many have been waiting for. The reimagining will be equally interesting for both fans and newcomers due to extended cutscenes and new plot twists. If you want to complete the game 100%, you will have to spend a solid 15-20 hours. To make this process easier, we have prepared a step-by-step walkthrough showing all the treasures and collectibles.

What you need to know before starting

Resident Evil 4 Remake consists of 16 chapters. As such, there is no open world in the game, but there are 3 large regions: Village (chapters 1-6), Castle (chapters 7-12), and Island (chapters 13-16). Within a few chapters, you can explore the territory relatively freely, but if you go through the story and discover the next area, you will not be able to return. This is important to remember if you missed something from the treasure or did not follow the instructions of the merchant.

Create several saves, preferably before leaving the location, so that you can then load the game and complete the remaining tasks. After the story, there is no chapter selection and free movement, but you can start a New Game+. In this mode, only treasures will be rolled back - to reach them, you need to collect everything at once in one playthrough. The game also takes into account the overall progress, so the rollback of the plot to the previous save will not interfere with the long-awaited platinum.

There are 19 merchant quests in the remake, which are small side quests. All of them are simply scattered in the open world in the form of blue notes. 100% completion on easy or medium difficulty takes about 12-20 hours (depending on the speed of exploration and success in battles) if this is your first attempt. However, New Game+ with upgraded equipment will take approximately 3-4 hours depending on the difficulty chosen.

For platinum, you will need to collect 16 castellans (small figurines), 104 treasures, complete 19 merchant tasks, unlock all 29 weapons, find or buy 7 weapon parts, and 5 crafting recipes.

If you die, all found items are rolled back to the checkpoint, except for the castellan, the progress of which is saved in any case.
