1. Try to save ammunition

The Resident Evil 4 remake is has the same survival-horror gameplay as the previous RE remakes, which rewards a careful and cautious playstyle. The game's design emphasizes resource management - players need to be mindful of their ammunition reserves, as running out can lead to their demise.

It is therefore recommended that players conserve ammo and only use powerful weapons such as shotguns and rocket launchers on powerful enemies, while relying on basic weapons such as pistols for other encounters.

Overall, it is recommended to incapacitate enemies first by shooting them in the leg with a pistol, and then quickly move in for a melee takedown. However, it is important to exercise caution and only attempt this strategy when it is feasible, as enemies can appear suddenly in great numbers and easily overpower Leon. Additionally, players can also use a knife to parry enemy attacks, which can come in handy during combat.

2. Approach combat strategically

Instead of open fire every time a zombie appears, a more slow and deliberate approach is recommended.

Sneaking up on enemies to deal more damage.

During the course of the Resident Evil 4 remake, players will face various lethal creatures, from slow-moving villagers to fearsome Regenerators. Despite the odds, Leon has some new abilities that he can use to his advantage. For instance, he can now crouch with a dedicated button, which enables players to stealthily eliminate isolated enemies and reduce the enemy's numbers. Additionally, it is crucial to always keep track of the positioning of both Leon and his adversaries during combat situations.

In combat enemies tend to grab the protagonist more often. To counter this, it is recommended to swiftly move out of harm's way and strike back while the enemies are disoriented, as they are more susceptible to attacks in that state. Moreover, players can use baiting tactics by luring enemies to move towards traps that have been strategically placed in the open. In some instances, it is even possible to make enemies turn against one another, such as when the menacing Chainsaw Man uses his powerful attacks.

3. Explore every nook and cranny

In order to successfully navigate the trials and tribulations presented in the Resident Evil 4 remake, players will require all the assistance they can obtain. As the game is a solo experience, Leon's success is solely dependent on his collection of weapons and items. Various weapons and optional missions can be discovered naturally throughout the game, which necessitates meticulously searching each area.

Apart from crafting resources, they can also come across valuable items, such as money and treasures. The money can be used to buy various items and upgrades, while treasures can be sold for a more substantial amount of cash. It is important to keep in mind that treasures can be stacked, so players should only sell them when they have all the required components. All of these transactions can be conducted at the Merchant's shop.

4. Visit the Merchant frequently for upgrades

When it comes to Resident Evil 4, there is one character that immediately springs to mind - the enigmatic and charming Merchant. In the remake, he still operates a shop where players can purchase a range of items, including consumables and weapons. Since there would be a lot of fighting in RE4R, keeping your weapons upgraded and various resources stocked would make combat much more manageable.

It is also recommended to carry a variety of weapons that can cater to both short-range and medium-to-long-range combat scenarios. Some enemies in the game may launch attacks from a distance, while others may attempt to get up close and personal.

Amongst the upgrades, it is recommended to focus on the following items:

  • The melee knife allow you to conserve ammunition. As it deteriorate with each strike against enemies, players need to monitor the knife's durability.
  • Upgrading the shotgun is a must as it has amazing damage and great stopping power at close range.
  • Upgrading the Attache Case increases your carrying capacity, which means more items and weapons.

5. Manually control Ashley based on the situation

Throughout the Resident Evil 4 remake, players will encounter various segments where they have to escort Ashley Graham, who is controlled by AI. In many ways, she has been updated and improved, such as the removal of her health bar, meaning that players do not need to waste herbs on her.

Ashley can be instructed to either stay near Leon or keep some distance. Her moving around might pose a problem if enemies try to kidnap or assault her since she lacks the ability to defend herself. Players must ensure Ashley's safety at all times since she can be knocked out and requires revival. A white icon on the lower right corner of the screen provides information about Ashley's condition.
