Resident Evil 4 Remake has numerous goodies that you can unlock. However, several will require multiple completions, as well as a bit of know-how for more efficient clears. Here’s our Resident Evil 4 unlockables guide to help you with all the weapons and costumes that you can obtain in the game.
Resident Evil 4 unlockables guide – Weapons, costumes, and accessories
Our Resident Evil 4 unlockables guide takes a look at the different items that can be yours once you finish the game. All of these can be acquired via the main menu -> Bonus Content -> Extra Content Shop, where each selection costs Completion Points (i.e., what you earn when you complete challenges/achievements in the campaign). You may then equip these by clicking Continue -> Extras.
Ranks – Campaign completion scoring system
Additionally, some rewards are further subdivided based on game modes and clear rankings (usually dependent on completion time). As such, you can’t get everything in one go. Here’s the gist:
|Rank/Score||Assisted Difficulty||Standard Difficulty||Hardcore Difficulty||Professional Difficulty
– Unlocked after beating the game once on any of the default difficulty modes
– New Game+ not allowed
|Four hours||Five hours||Five and a half hours||Five and a half hours
15 saves or fewer
|S||Four hours||Five hours||Five and a half hours||Five and a half hours|
|A||15 hours||12 hours||10 hours||7 hours|
For instance, if you’re attempting an S+ rank run, then you’ll need to be very familiar with the game already. Knowing when to avoid enemies, and being able to clear the campaign as fast as possible would be the end goal. Moreover, since New Game+ isn’t allowed, you’ll have to start a fresh run without weapon upgrades or items that you’ve collected. However, some bonus weapons can be picked up from the storage, and they can be upgraded as you progress.
