Resident Evil 4 (spoilers Warning!)


Recommended Posts

Me too, but I also beat most of the other bosses first time. Didn't bother me, as they were such fun. Only one that gave me trouble was Sala-ma-zar.

In other news, I got another 4 bottle caps last night, including a "rare" one from the top row. Addictive.

I had loads of trouble with fishy, was trying to be too clever instead of realising straight away I could just keep twatting him in the back.

This rare bottle cap thing is weird

I only have 2 rows, first row complete and second one getting there - yet first bottle tops I got each time were the rare ones

I'm still not really sure what I need to do :unsure:

Ideally I'd like to be able to pop back to the shooting ranges when I fancy, I can't move through the game any further until I've done the second range

I just saved the game in 5.3 outside the final shooting range. Then I load up that save, do a bit of shooting, then save over it again. By the time you get to that point you can play games A, B, C & D at will.

How hard did people find the final boss? I beat him first time.

Killed him on the 2nd attempt and managed to kill Mendez on the first attempt along with IT on the second attempt but struggled like hell in loads of other places that people had no problem with. The El Gigantes wiped me out a lot as did the left hand. Salazar was fast becoming a pain in the arse as well.

But like I said about 20 pages back, the difficulty level I found to bang on the button. Just when I felt like giving up I managed to do a section I was stuck on. It's almost as if the game knows you're on the edge of giving up and suddenly everything falls into place.

I was dreading the lead Ashley everywhere stuff but even that was handled fantastically.

I believe that to get the rare ones you have to get 25/25.

To get normal ones you have to score over 3000 points.

I spent my money early on powering up my shotgun, saw off the earlier El Gigantes easily enough, but they were much tougher at the lava pit (I only ever managed to see off one through the trap door, so had to fight the other).

Left hand was simple enough as I'd bought the magnum by that point.

Salazar was a massive pain until I realised I hadn't souped up my rifle since the start of the game. Doh!

I was dreading the lead Ashley everywhere stuff but even that was handled fantastically.

My fave bit of the game, leading her down those corridors. *armour chink sound* RUNNNNNNN!! :lol::angry:

I only killed the Right Hand when I went back with the CT. Didn't know you could use the Nitrogen Tanks (was trying to shoot them), so got the shit kicked out of me until the 4 minutes was up.

Salazar took about 20 attempts, due to my inability to dodge his un-dodgeable by QTE scoffing attack .

Salazar was giving me loads of problems too.

Click For Spoiler
So I just reloaded a save and bought the Rocket Launcher from WELCOME dude outside the room. 1 hit was all it took

Ahhhhh. I was getting mixed up with IT.

Right hand was indeed a twat. Took me longer than should have to realise he couldn't really be fought. Dodge him for a few minutes, leg it, upturn tank, leg it, active lift, leg it, upturn tank, shoot until dead.

Salazar took about 20 attempts, due to my inability to dodge his un-dodgeable by QTE scoffing attack .

Realised early on that attack is useless on the left and right hand platforms.

I just polished him off with the Broken Butterfly. Blam blam blam.

I found it easier to just stand there and QTE dodge when necessary.

So does anyone have the Handcannon yet?

I had a quick go on the castle yesterday with Leon, and got 3 stars. I will never ever finish Mercs, so, I'll just let you guys describe what the gun looks like to me. :lol:

Click For Spoiler
According to Gamefaqs it's a Mega Magnum. A "Hand Cannon" is what Dirty Harry called his apparently.

I thought it was going to be a mini-gun or something, so I'm not actually that bothered about getting it.

It's basically Barry Burton's .44 magnum from the Remake. Juicy.

But sadly I haven't got 20 5* ratings yet. It really is all about the achievement, as Vemsie says. :unsure:

Did exactly the same with Salazar

Click For Spoiler
Sold a few things to make space for the rocket launcher. Hit the eye with the shotgun and then rocket launched him, dead in one shot.

Watching that guys speed run he uses the rocket launcher on the right hand. Freezes him once then hits him with it, dead.

I though the speed run had moments of genius but then other times he just spends ages and ages killing a boss that we all seem to polish off in seconds.

Salazar slaying

Click For Spoiler
The way i see it using the rocket launcer in any of the boss fights is a bit of a cop out. That's not to say i didn't do it, i did with el gigante or wotsicalled. But the way i did Salazar was SO much more satisfying and actually very easy. I went round to the end of the upper section (either end, where it meets the wall and the tentacles come out). Using fullyish souped up Killer7 (is that what it's called It's been weeks) blast the tentacle 3 or 4 times till it retracts. Then when Salazer is exposed BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM wait till he's exposed again BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM take that you little shit, occasionally shoot back tentacle when it reappears, BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM till dead :unsure: [/spolier]

Agree! Salazar is one of the easiest bosses I reckon. I saved the rocket launcher right until the final boss on my first playthrough.

Yeah, but that un-dodgeable attack was a bit cheeky.

Click For Spoiler
I absolutely love that cutscene where you skewer his hand with your knife. The look on his snivelling little face is priceless. When I did that bit, everyone in the room cheered, as he'd been getting on our nerves. I was so busy gloating that I didn't react in time and got a knife in the neck.

It was quite funny.

I. Introduction.

At the games release theres was a lot of curiosity regarding the spanish

phrases that some enemies spoke. So to satisfy that curiosity this guide was

created, as well, the guide includes lots of interesting details and extras

that the developers took the time to implement.

This guide has the risk of passing as inane but consider that developers

create this game worlds from ground cero, realizing them in their minds and

materializing them through thousands of hours of code, sweat, blood and tears

So the reason for the guide is to appreciate that.

As for the details listed we picked the ones that are subtle but also the ones

that while obvious are too damn cool. So here's hope you find this guide

amusing in a very good way and who knows? maybe this is yet another incentive

to replay this great game this time paying close attention to the surroundings

**Thanks Angela for #20.

What you hear when the villagers enter the bulding is:

-Ohhh!... The bell.

-It's time to pray.

-We have/need to go.

-Lord Sadler.




-If you run for a while, Leon will start to breathe heavily.


-After your first encounter with Krausser, Leon will have a scar in the right

cheek for the rest of the game.

-When its raining you can see water hitting Leon's shoulders, this happens to

Ashley also but only in cinemas.

-When Leon is close to the place of an explosion, he'll duck a bit and cover

his face.

-The reason why you can still use the knife in Sadlers fight is because the

knife Leon used to save ADA was Krauser's.

-Leon also reacts to the enemies. He turns the head in the direction of

enemies or other ambient stuff like the bats in some areas.



-When you are fighting along side Luis you'll notice that when an enemy grabs

him, he frees himself the same way Leon does.

-In the cabin if you shoot Luis enough you'll trigger a cinema where Luis

shoots you 4 times in the chest, giving a game over screen.

-After hes dead zoom to his face, his eyes are closed.


Forbidden Shani

-Ashley will not take damage from shotgun's wide-range blast unless the

aiming cursor is directly pointed at her. However rocket / grenade blast will

kill her.


-Ashhley reacts to the enemies near her, she turns her head in the direction

that enemies come.

-She also can fall in traps if you are not careful enough.

-When Ashley is behind Leon, she looks in the exact direction Leon is aiming.

-Ashley skirt and hair sway in windy areas. Or the laces in the other costume.

-When the command prompt "catch" appears on screen if you look up Ashley will

think you are trying to see her panties (wich probably true), then she'll say:

"You pervert" or "What are you doing?". This also happens in other instances

where Leon's line of sight might have a chance to see her panties, for

example she scolded me when i suplexed a monk, in that case Leon's head was

almost directly below Ashley's skirt.

-When using the alternative outfit, if you look up when the "catch" command

appears Ashley won't say anything. This is a good detail since she is wearing

pants this time.

-When the command prompt "catch" appears on screen, if you dont hit the A

buttom and go away instead, Ashley will say in a worried voice: " Where are you

going Leon?". This also happens in ocasions where she loses sight of Leon.

-When Ashley is behind you every time you take out or hit an enemy she'll

close her fist and move her arm. Sort of like a "hoozaaa" or "YESSSS!"


-When she is in your line of fire shell quickly duck.

-Ashley panties are not a simple white texture. CAPCOM went the extra mile and

made a decoration to the top part of the panties.

-Is possible to torture Ashley in many ways. Crush her with the giant rock in

the second El Gigante fight, or crush her with the giant steel ball in the

garbage processing plant, put her bellow a kerosene lamp and shoot it. There

are many possibilities.



-There's at least 2 places where you can lead enemies right to the merchant,

and they will not affect him. One is right after the hedge maze. If you don't

kill the dogs, they will eventually make their way into room where you

encounter Ada. The other location is when you drop down the manhole that's in

the tent where enemies are camping out. They will follow you down. One weird

thing is that you cannot talk to the merchant when enemies are near.

Forbidden Shani

-Shooting Range Merchants cannot be killed.

-Regular Merchants doesnt count as a kill in the game.


-Is possible to kill the merchants, one shot is all it takes.

-So merchants are infested by the parasite, easily identifiable by zooming

into their eyes. The red eyed ones are infected.




-At the begining of the game the ganados are busy with their activities. You

can see them stacking hey, even taking a brake after a while. Is posible to

see the pitchforks with hey when sinked in the hey pile.

-One shot in the arm that carries the weapon will make them drop it.

-When they hit you with a sharp object you'll see blood dripping from the


-When they fall in water a big splash is made.

-When they die in water, the remaining liquid dissolves in the water.

-When the weapons they trow hit the water a splash is made.

-You can block the projectiles they throw you by shooting them in mid air.

-If they die by an explosion a gigantic blood splatter forms on the floor.

-In the night sequence you can see their eyes glowing in the dark with a red


-When something is blocking their path, like furniature for example, they

start hiting it with the fists. In the case of a window they continually bang

it, you can see the frame shaking, until is broken.

-Point the laser cursor to their faces long enough and sometimes they'll raise

the hands to cover themselves.

-You can't blow the heads of monks that ware iron masks. The suplex can't do

it even a shot from a powerful gun like a magnum will not hurt the head but

instead it'll send the enemy flying.

-You can knock their hats, helmets, hoods what ever they have on the head.

-To make the villagers armed with tourches burn themselves, wait for them to

open their mouth to start blowing and quickly shoot them.

-The ones using a crossbow as a weapon have a slightly different AI routine.

They seek cover behind structures ad try to keep distance from Leon.

-If you manage to kneel the ones equipped with shields get near them to kick

this causes them to drop the shield.

-Early in the game, after you cross the second bridge, there are some

villagers in the distance (above a risk) that start runing. After you finish

the game and start another round those villagers never appear. The reason

for this to happen is that it would be posible to use a sniper rifle to kill

them. Also this is a scripted sequence that forms part of the history.

-Also this villagers say: "Un forastero......Avisemos a los otros" wich means:

"Lets warn the others".

-Phase two and three parasite can decapitate Leon.


-3rd phase plagas and the oven man will eventually die by themselves.



-When an infested wolf jumps ontop of Leon after he stops biting notice the

blood driping from the fangs.

-The name "Colmillo" means fang in english.



-They sometimes use the chainsaw to destroy wooden doors.

-One hit with the chainsaw decapitates Leon.

===DEL LAGO===


-Before fighting Del Lago get near the lake where the boat is and fire 6 shots

Del Lago will come and eat you before the fight even starts. This the one

everyone knows, yet is cool.

-Every harpoon that hits Del Lago stays until the creature dies.

-After the first harpoon hit Del Lago leaves a trail of blood in the water.

-If you fail to clear the button press sequence a cinema will appear where

Leon is dragged by the dead creature to the lake's depth.



-In the second El Gigante fight (in one of the alternative routes) you can

pass by him without killing him, since the game doesn't require it. Just be

sure to grab the door key and take down the door chains quickly with grenades

or a shotgun.

-In the first and second El Gigante fights if you dont take the items inside

the cabins before El Gigante smash them, the items will be gone. Save for the

items that are in the cabins floor, wich are the minority.

-If El Gigante grabs Ashley is possible to make him drop her by shooting his


-In the El Gigante fight with Ashley check out the ground, you'll notice the

giant's foot prints.

-When you kill El Gigante in every fight after the first one if you are

standing in front and near him a button sequence will appear so you can avoid

being squashed.


Flere Cruor

-When you fight chief Mendez, he twists the door handles to prevent you from

leaving. After the fight, if you look on the other side of the door, the

handle on Leon's left is twisted under and to the right, staying true to the

handles being twisted on the other side. Nice detail.

Forbidden Shani

-If you check out the eye item from Mendez goo will continuously drip while

the eyeball is rotating.


-In the confrontation look how one of his eyes glows red, thats his false eye.

-Chief Mendez coat has some bullet holes, specially in the back, since Ada

shot him twice.

-When he is broken in half watch his lower body convulsing on the floor for a


-After the fight, when you get out of the house, look at any of the house's

windows you'll see smoke clouds emanating from the interior. Nice touch.



-Garradors DO attack where the flash grenade went off. They just can't hurt

other enemies.


-If you shoot a Garrador in any part of the bodie (exept the parasite area)

with a powerful weapon, like a magnum for example, the Garrador will start

contorting and eventually kneels exposing the parasite in his back.

-The execution sequence shows Leon's head impaled by one of his claws them he

raises Leon in the air and stick the other claw in his stomach.



-We all know blue eyes are quite rare and sometimes not enough pop up. Many

people say they are definite in some areas... some say they are random....

But I was watching the novistadors and I noticed their eyes change colors.

From red to green. Which is the most popular color eyes they drop. I didnt

watch for long enough but my theory is that if their eyes are say, green when

you strike the finishing blow,they will drop a green eye... Ad maybe they

rarely change their color to blue.... which would be why they are so rare to



-A rough translation to english of the name Novistadores is "Nosighters"

-If you have a weapon with a scope is posible to pin point the position of a

Novistador or its head by watching the saliva droping from its mouth.

-If a Novistador kills Leon with the acid shower, Leon's face will melt

exposing his skull.



-Is posible to blow any of them with a rocket launcher.



-The knights that are about to attack Leon shake a little the weapons they are


-Is easy to take the knights with one shot using the mine thrower.



-When dropping one of the El Gigantes in the lava if you stand near the pool,

the struggling el Gigante will reach out and take Leon in the lava.



-If you lure the enemies in the dragons line of fire is possible to burn the

enemies. Is easy to solve this room by using just one bullet in the last




-Is possible to kill Righ Hand. You'll need to hit him with magnum rounds

(Broken Butterfly, Killer7, Hand Canon), Rocket Launcher or when you unlock

the Chicago Typewriter.

-There are 2 different ways in wich Righ Hand dies. If the final blow is dealt

when Right Hand is frozen he gets shattered into pieces. On the other hand, if

the final blow is delt when hes not frozen, he just starts shaking driping

acid and falls on the floor his body staying there. Finally you dont have to

kill him if you just survive him for 4 minutes.


-When Left Hand throws the knife to Leon if you fail the sequence the cinema

shows Leon falling in slow motion with the knife sinked in his chest.

Note: Thanks to Neil for correcting me.



-If you fail the button sequence when Salazar activates the floor trap a

cinema shows Leon getting impaled just like the monks in the sewers.



-"IT" has 2 execution methods. In the first one "IT" breaks Leon's neck. The

second one happens when "IT" is in his second form, "IT" uses that claw in his

tail to cut Leon in half, then raises Leon's legs in the air.



-You can knock Krausers hood from his head.

-Kind of obvious but every time Krauser is hit, blood and yellow matter shows

up. That instantly reveals and confirms his infested before his transformation

-In the knife fight Leon manages to cut Krauser in the chest area, later in

your second encounter (final phase) notice the scar on Krauser chest. Nice but

cuts dont heal that quickly so it most be a side effect of the parasite.

-In the second fight Krauser can destroy wooden doors.

-In the second fight is posible to kill Krauser just using the knife. Just get

close to him and swing the knife.

The Knife Fight:

1)Fail the first sequence Krauser makes frontal cut.

2)Krauser cuts Leons throat.

3)Krauser makes a front down up cut.

4)Krauser cuts Leon's throat samurai style.

5)Krauser stabs Leon in the stomach and then kicks him.

6)Krauser cuts Leon's throat.

7)Krauser slowly stabs Leon in the chest.



-Is not necessary to kill Sadler with the rocket launcher ADA gives you. You

can grab the rocket, keep it and sell it when you start the next round.

-The human part of Sadlers body constantly drips that putrid yellow substance.

-In the cinema where Ada shoots Sadler, check Sadler taking all the bullets

out of his body through his right hand.




-The thermals highlight absolutely every living thing. From enemies, to

fishes, worms. birds. Good detail because you get them relatively late in the

game, so the only way to verify this is when starting another round.

-The thermals highlight every boss weak point. Every relevant object like

breakble boxes, barrels, pick ups.

-Also the temperature of lights, fire, etc. But most impressive is how

watching the sky during the storm you'll see it turning orange after each

lighting flash.



-The gun description makes reference to the Dirty Harry movies.



-Leon can equip the eggs and throw them. Even they appear equipped in his

waist like grenades do.

-An enemy gets stunned when an egg hit his face, now quickly get close to him

and kick it.

-If you shoot an egg (as a pick up) it gets destroyed.



-Stun and fire grenades fail when dropped in water.

-Fragmentary grenades make a big splash when dropped in water.

-Flash grenades kill the parasites that pop from the heads of enemies.



-In the unoptimized handcanon reloding animation notice Leon holding the

bullets between the fingers of his left hand while he reloads the gun.

===KILLER 7===


-Killer 7 is the name of one of CAPCOM's long incoming games.

-The name of the Killer 7 handgun is a tribute to the long coming Capcom game

But also the Killer 7 handgun is one of the weapons you can use in the

Killer 7 videogame.


Colt Huddleston

-The Matilda is actually the H&K VP70 Burst from RE2. To make it official,

give it one capacity upgrade for the 18 bullets. This fits well with the RPD

uniform for the oldschool appeal. Since this was not in any descriptions, I

figured it would be a nice added tidbit.


-After the rocket is fired the body of the Launcher will stay in the ground.


Michael Knies

-On the shooting gallery with the castle if you shoot the stars a lot a bomb

will fall, also a fireworks show will happen.


-Shoot the hive in the background and a lot of wasps start flying.

-Shoot the barn in the background and you'll see tons of chicken feathers

-Shoot the castle in the background to hear Salazar laughing

-Shoot the moon in the background and the lights dim.



-Enemies do more damage.

-Enemies sustain more damage.

-Enemies are more agressive. For example they run more often or are faster,

the ganados with gas masks are really fast.

-Enemies tend to fall from ledges/hights a lot less after been shot.

-In the part where Leon frees Ashley from the wall some monks with crossbows

show up. I dont think they appear in normal.

-In Pro mode every regenerator has a fifth parasite in the back.

-At the stage with Mike (the helicopter pilot), he tends to not help Leon as

much as he does in normal difficulty.

-In that same stage some doors have the strong padlock, those are absent in




Did you guys notice leon's knife is in its sheath after krauser jumps away? is

it just me or didnt krauser knock it away.

Arick wilson

-After the first fight scene when you escape from the house and kill the

ganado, approach the bridge you came in on. You will have the option to look

down at the car wreckage in the river, but more importantly, if you go to the

actual bridge, the game will have a typo and says something alone the lines

of, "The brigde is out."

Flere Cruor

-If you find a door with a padlock on it, you can kick it open. Yet, if you

approach the same door from the alternate side, the padlock will not break.


-Notice that after your fight with Mendez, you take his eye. Take a few steps

back and zoom in with a rifle. He still has both his eyes in his head.

Jasper Bakker

-Why are there Peseta's all over the place? Spains Currency is the Euro for a

couple of years now :-) and RE4 takes place in 2004 (the game says so itself).

A contradiction is that Kobayashi denied that the game takes place in Spain.


-In the part where you have to shoot the truck to make it tip over and slam

into the side of the cliff(right before the castle), I found something

interesting. After you total the truck, turn around so that you are facing the

gate you came through and walk past the truck. The Ganados will not appear

unless you turn around so that you cannot see the truck, or I believe, if you

walk so far you cannot see it.

Mystik Duck

-When Ashley is in the bindings, if you use the thermal scope she appears to

be cold or dead as it is all blue.


-If you watch the first trailer after waiting on the main menu, when Ashley is

captured by the ring thingies that come out of the walls in the Castle, she

says, "Oh my God! What's going on!?", but in the game when it happens, she

just says "What's going on!?". Don't wanna get sued, aye Capcom?


-In the cinema with Leon and Ada at the Castle, when Ada confronts Leon, leon

tries to get her gun, she kicks it out of his hands. When Leon reaches out for

his knife, the knife is not in the knife slot...but when the scene shows leon

running towards Ada, with knife still in hands, he has yet another knife in

the knife slot.


-When you finish the Del Lago battle and enter the cabin, when you go outside

and it's raining, the torches are still lit. They should be extinguished and

smoke should be emitting from it.


-The 1st room in the house where the village chief strangles you, before the

cut scene when you 1st see Ada you cant shoot the window she shoots into.


-When you trigger the cinema where ADA appears in chief Mendez house, you'll

notice that the shot hits one of Sadlers portrait, making a hole. Yet when the

sequence is over the picture doesn't have the hole.

-The dialog both spoken and written fails to take into account the costume

switch. For example, ADA alt outfit is black yet everyone keeps mentioning her

red dress.

-In the cinema sequences Leon always use the default pistol even if you have

already sold it.

-When looking the cops with thermal scope at the games beginning, the scope

fails to present them in red. They eventually die but is not like the thermal

scope can predict the future.

-Kind of a mistake. In 3-4 from where Ashley got the flashlight? Considering

the quailty of the game and attention to details they could have come with a

reason for the Ashley having the flashlight.

-Bear traps dont affect enemies. They just by them and nothing happens.



-During the intro, the car's engine starts twice... It's already running and

after the guy finished peeing it starts again.... magickal car, heh.

Brady marin

-I just found out that the letters that Ada writes you are in japanese. If

you look at the letter posted outside of the merchant's shop right after you

ride the elevator from where you killed the flying bugs in the cave, you can

adjust the camera and see a few japanese words written in english letters.

Everything else is a little hard to read.


-During the opening cut scene, when the police officer is taking a leak, you

can see some steam rising.


-In the jail cell hallway near the end of the game (with the Regenerator), if

you look at the moving bag in the cabinet with the thermal scope, the entire

thing is BRIGHT red.

Flere Cruor

-Every door with a white "Open" subtitle is opened away from Leon. In other

words, nearly EVERY door in the game is double-hinged for some reason.


-It's another plug for Killer7 by Capcom. If you look closely at any

screenshots for Killer7 that show enemies, you'll notice that the Regenerators

in Resident Evil bear a striking resemblance to the enemies in Killer7.


-If you go past the church the first time without checking it (that is trying

to open the door) you will get a different conversation with Hunnigan than the

one you usually get.


-Ok so i was playing around with the Mine thrower. I saw some crows and

decided to see what happens if you try to shoot them with the mines. It was

funny as hell! First they fall to the floor then get up and start to fly and

you see the dart blinking faster and faster then they blow up in the air into

feathers lol lol.. its hilarious.


-If you look closely at the torches you can see small pieces of wood inside

the iron braziers. Upon setting off an explosion near a torch (grenade, rocket

launcher, etc...) you can see the wood pieces getting blown out of the

braziers, which at first glance makes it look like the torch's fire is simply

getting blown out. It's a pretty cool effect - you can see the flaming pieces

of wood fall to the ground, where they burn for a few seconds before dying

out. This works with almost any torch in the game, except for merchant's

torches. *Authors note: Also you can blow the torches with any weapon or the



-In the area in the cave where you meet the Merchant in the stall with the

weapons on the shelves, on the top left shelf, there is a gun which you can't

use in the game. Weird.


-All the paintings you can find 5000 peseta behind in the castle have pictures

of lord Saddler except in the second cart ride stop, where its behind a

painting of a woman.


-The mercenaries game is an EXTREME throwback to P.N.03 the capcom shooter on

the GC. It wasn't all that popular of a game,so let me tell you what's

similar: the gameplay is just like it.it utilizes the combo system of the

game, to where if you kill one enemy, there's a timer (which, unlike in P.N.

03, you can't see) that starts. And you have to kill the next enemy before

that timer runs out to up the combo and get you more points. Another thing is

the music. I noticed that when playing as Krauser and Hunk, their music, is

right out of the P.N.03 game


-There are bats in places swirling around Leon that you can kinfe, they will

die but nothing comes out of them. *Authors note: Check out Leon noding his

head while he watches the bats swirling around him.


-Right before the fight with the villiage chief guy there's a tree you can

look at, go around it and there is a beetle that flies from the tree, nothing

happens when you shoot it, it's just there.

Suzanne Chabot

-You can stop the axes and other weapons with your KNIFE, too.


-Past the villager through the double doors where the blue paper medallions

are at in that area, go past the barn full of cows and go to the back and you

will see a bunch of dead bodies of people in a waggon with worms or maggots in

it. When it is nighttime and you go to the same spot, they are not there



*Authors Note: Is known that its the dog you save from the trap.

-Capcom, not happy with just naming a gun in RE4 after another game they have

in development (killer 7), also decided to promote their upcoming survival

horror game "haunting ground" ("demento" in japan) by lending Hewie, Fiona's

canine sidekick, to RE4 as well. This is clear when Leon, aided by Hewie, says

"hey, its that dog!". what dog, Leon? the one he knows is also in "haunting

ground". genius, Capcom, genius.


-I thought I was the only one that noticed it but I found out most probably

noticed it, but Krauser and Leon's knives have the same insignia on the blade.

Wolf club (Sean S.)

-In the small shack before the house where you meet Luis (with the bear trap

and trip wire) by the two crates there are 3 small spiders on the wall and

flor that you can kill.


-The first time you reach the church try opening the main door, this will

activate a codec sequence where Hunnigan makes a parody of RE1 "master of


-The first time you reach the church shoot the bell, this cause more villagers

to come around. This only works the first time and its limited to 4-6 times.

-After the cutscene where Leon and Ashley jump through the church window you

can enter the church again, the 2 monks with crossbows will still be there.

Kill them to get extra cash, plus this is the first encounter with monks in

the game.

-After you get the church key inside the waterfall instead of using the door

that opens in front of you head back the way you came. Use the boat to reach

the place just before fighting "Del Lago". When you reach the incline the game

will show you a cinema with the first infested wolf encounter. Here you'll

fight 5 wolves, this is before the church wolves by the way.

-There are 2 door opening animations for both Leon and Ashley according if you

hit the A buttom once or twice, when the A buttom is hit twice this makes Leon

kick the door. More if you initiate the normal door animation it can be

interrupted at any time with the door kick animation, this is useful to peek

and see if there are enemies in the other side. Also you can hurt and stun

enemies by kick opening the doors in their faces.

-Both Leon and Krauser cuts heal too quickly, maybe thats an effect of the

Las Plagas parasites. The same applies to Zalasar when he got stabbed in the


-In every instance in the game where you see food, the food is either full of

flies or maggots.

-Take out the knife and hit any cow 6 times. The cow fights back by stabing

Leon with the horns. It makes damage but it wont kill you even if you bar is

empty. Even more, the cow you stabbed always will attack every time you get

close to it.

-Bear traps inflict damage but they never kill Leon.

-You never see the sun round shape. But you can look at the lens flare

generated by the sun in some places.

-Looking at the rays of light shining through windows and other places is

possible to see the small dust particles dancing in the air.

-The furniature that Leon can push can be destroyed by a strong weapon.

Sometimes is quicker to destroy the furniature if you are in a hurry, for

example to get that treasure in the farm blow the furniature instead of going

through the roof.

-In the game's begining if you shoot the guy at the wheel hell say: "No estes

odiando.... Get over it will ya". The spanish part means "stop hating". If you

shoot the other one he'll say: "Hey! stop fooling around". Talking to the guy

at the wheel triggers this response: "Forgot your make up or something?".

Talking to the other one he'll say: "What's the matter? You lost your nerve".

Finally at the very begining if you try to cross the first bridge the guy at

the pasenger seat says: "Not that way cowboy".

-In the house with the first ganado once Leon kills him is not possible to

open the entrance door, a message pops saying its stucked, this is because

theres a ganado in the other side preventing Leon from opening it.

-At the village in the begining if you rush to the farn's door youll see the

chainsaw man and 2 other villagers gaurding the farn entrance.

-BTW, Hiroyuki Kobayashi (the RE4 producer) denied that the game takes place

in Spain yet even the officer uniforms correspond to the spanish police

standar costume.

-In the cable car ride with Leon and Ashley notice the ganados standing in

platforms, there are 2 of them. If you dont take them out before the cable car

passes near them, they will jump on top of the car and cut the support that

links the car to the cable, falling to the precipice.

-At the places with fish, check out the big bass trying to eat the small ones.

-In the place with the first truck encounter (outside the castle), instead of

shooting the 3 ganados atop the rise just walk forward to activate the cinema

and watch the truck crashing the poor ganados.

-CAPCOM represented the effect of rain drops hitting a mass of water. View

this effect in the drinking tanks for the animals.

-The candle illumination effect is very well represented, notice the slight

halo and bloom the candles charactristicaly form.

-The torches, explosions have the heat distortion effect.

-In the Ada encounter at the castle when she throws the shades you can see

both Ada and Leon's images reflecting in them.

-In the mine cart scene instead of avoiding the wood supports by crouching

is posible to shoot them instead or let one standing Ganado get hit.

-In the Mecha Salazar scene (Giant Robotic Salazar) you can shoot the switches

from afar instead of activating them by hand. Is cool to make the monks fail

the jumps by moving Salazars robot hands at will.

-At island you can take out the first search light so you wont trigger the


-If you shoot Mike's helicopter with any weapon he says: "Wha... you crazy?"

but it doesnt do anything to the chopper.

-At stage 5-4 in the cells to the left of the entrance to the hall there is a

metal container, open it. Surprise, to stop the shaking shoot it.

-After the cabin scene with Luis you can take both routes if you want, El

Gigante and the villagers-chainsaw ladies route. Suggest doing so since it nets

you more treasure.

-You can shoot the crows when they are flying. Is hard but the falling

animation is very realistic.

-Looking closely to the cows mouths is noticeable the line of saliva falling


-All wooden doors in the game can be destroyed.

-The double doors can be opened at the same time by positioning Leon right in

the middle or instead you can open one at a time by positioning the character

left or right.

-Almost everything with glass like windows, monitor screens, etc can be


-Some lamps, torches can be destroyed.

-Leon can break the padlocks by kicking them.

-The game saves every door, window, lamp, screen you destroyed. Save for the

village chapter revisit.

-In the castle level the full moon sometimes get covered by the clouds.

-The only roaches in the entire game appear in the kitchen floor at level 5-1

Thats the place where the welldone crispy mad man leaves the oven.

-The end credits expand the history to some extent. You can see how the

parasite was introduced to the villagers and what happened to the children.

-Also at the end credits the dev team put a funny copy right warning, any

illegal reproduction of the game will be punish by the Racoon Police

Department by an apropiate member of the S.T.A.R.S. team.

-After the fight with Del Lago is possible to freely roam in the lake, you can

harpoon the fish and pick them up by getting the boat near them.

-The faster and easy way to fish is throwing a grenade in the lake, watch 5 or

6 ready for the taking them go sale them to the merchant for some quick money.

-If you activate the wolf sequence at the lake instead of fighting them run to

the boat and jump in. The wolves cant hurt you and now start harpooning them

from the boat. It only takes 2 harpoons to kill 1 wolf in pro mode.

-If you stand at the lake, in the place where you see the cinema of the 2

villagers throwing the cop to El Lago, and shoot the lake youll see the

ripples extending through the lake a good distance. Is not much but in games

the ripple effect tends to be a tiny circle and very close to the focal point.

-When it starts raining is possible to notice water dripping in some of the

rock textures.

-In the parts with breeze notice the small plants and bushes gently swinging.

-Now and then some leaves fall from the trees that have them.

-When seeing the lake from the scenic route (near the church) and its raining

is easy to notice the water droplets hitting the mass of water.

-Is possible to prevent the jewels above the wells from getting dirty. Just

shoot the small wood sustaining the cap of the well, then proceed to shoot the


-There are 2 types of torches in the game the one fueled by wood and the other

fueled by kerosene, the ones that use kerosene emit a thick black smoke. Very


-At the pit with the giant spikes, just before the fight with Righ Hand

(Berdugo), there are 2 dead monks in the water, upon closer inspection you'll

notice blood dripping from their bodies and disolving into the water.

You can, kind of, dodge this attack you know. Its a bit of a cheat, but I just kept jumping into the pit in front of me every time he even tried to go for it. I beat him easily enough this way.

Well yes, and actually that's what I did in the end. I meant that it doesn't give you a QTE dodge thingy, so you get a bit of a random death situation.
