You should save your money at the beginning for level 3-1. At level 3-1 if you save you'r money from the starting of the game, you'll be able to get the Broken butterfly. It costs 30,200. Which would usually be a lot in the game. But, if you save you'r money, you'll be able to get it easily. If you already got to this part and you don't have a lot of money, sell the old shotgun you found in the village and you should be able to get the riot gun. It's an awesome new shotgun.
To scratch a scratch card, buy about 5 items from toad square, or from the wierd Italian guy.
Special rocket launcher:
To get the special rocket launcher, get to the final boss, lord Saddler. When you beat him, Ada will give it to you.
Infinite rocket launcher:
To get the infinite rocket launcher, beat the game. Then it will be available in the merchant's shop for 1,000,000 PTAS. But, I don't reccomend buying it. Because, for some reason, It's less powerful than the regular rocket launcher.
To get the shotgun, you go to the village behind the big black door. Go into the building with the stairs. When you go up, you'll find it up on the wall. Remember, only use it when you'r trying to kill the chainsaw guy, or when a ton of zombies are coming.
Red9 and Punisher:
To get these, you'll need to find ALL 10 of the madallions and shoot them. It kind of seems like a lot of work, but you'll probably do it early in the game. And, it'll be worth it, though. Ther'e great guns.
To get it, beat the game once on normal mode, and then again on hard mode. Again, this is a bunch of work, But it's worth it.
The awesomest weapons that Iv'e used in the game are the Handcannon, Infinite rocket launcher, PRL 412, Chicago typewriter, Striker, Shotgun, Red9, Punisher, TMP, Matilda, and the Broken butterfly.
All you have to do is.... When the garrador starts walking around...go near a wall and shoot at random and WALK somewhere safe before he attacks you(no running or else he will follow the footsteps sounds)he will give the claw punch attack getting stuck on the wall. Shoot with the sniper(semi-auto reccomended)and he will be hurt severely. Do this for about 5-6 times and he should die easy(works with all other garradors exept the one with the cell(only after you get out will that work)
Thumbs if it IS easy!
When he snaps in half shoot him with a rocket launcher.
Here's something I thought would be a little fun to try out...
In Chapter 1-3, as you are heading off to fight Del Lago, head onto the dock where the boat is moored, but don't get onto the boat. Instead, get out any weapon and start shooting into the lake. After shooting enough times, Del Lago will emerge and devour Leon, along with half the dock.
If you knew that already, here's something I bet you didn't know. It's a glitch caused by triggering the same cut-scene. Fire into the lake, but don't do it from the dock. Shoot from further away. When Del Lago emerges to eat you, he will only eat the dock, as you are not standing on it. However, the game will count it as a death, and you will see the 'You Died' message, despite the fact that you can actually hear Leon getting up. Weird, eh?
You can obtain several weapons in this game for free. Here I will list the locations of these weapons:
Handgun - Automatically available from the start of the game.
Shotgun - Found in the house that triggers the villager attack cut-scene in the village in 1-1. It is in the upstairs bedroom, hoisted on the wall. However, on the Easy difficulty, it is automatically available from the start of the game, like the Handgun.
Punisher - Shoot 10 of the 15 Blue Medallions around the village and cemetery. The Merchant will give you this gun for free the next time you see him. If you shoot all 15 of the Blue Medallions, you'll also get a free Firepower upgrade for the gun.
Rocket Launcher - Found towards the end of 3-3, in the large room with the bridge crossing it. Cross the bridge, but instead of going through the door at the opposite end, turn left and head down the passageway in this direction. In the middle of this large room, there is a glass cabinet filled with ammo and, of course, a free Rocket Launcher. Beware, as there are Zealots lurking in this room.
Broken Butterfly - In 3-2, Leon will pass by a locked door with a high window that he mentions he may be able to get into with the help of another person. Backtrack to this area in 4-1 when Ashley has rejoined you. Leon will give her a boost up to the window, and she will climb into the room and unlock the door. Inside the chest in this room is a free Broken Butterfly, which is well worth getting considering how expensive this excellent gun is to purchase. There are also several other goodies in this room.
Rocket Launcher (Special) - Given to you by Ada in the final battle against Saddler, once you have damaged him enough. You can only use it against Saddler.
Before you go into the prison to face the first Garrador. Look out the overviewing the prison you can see on a metal bar top of the prison you can see ammo shot it and enter the prison after you get the key and recover the ammo.
Resident Evil 4, like the other games in the series, features three different types of healing herb, which can be combined in numerous ways. However, due to the removal of the Poison status from the game, the Blue herb is replaced by the Yellow. The chart below lists all possible combinations and the effects of herbs when used:
Green - Restores a small amount of health
Green + Green - Restores a large amount of health
Green + Green + Green - Fully restores health
Red - Cannot be used alone
Yellow - Cannot be used alone
Green + Red - Fully restores health
Green + Yellow - Restores a small amount of health and adds an extra 5 percent to total health
Green + Green + Yellow - Restores a large amount of health and adds an extra 5 percent to total health
Green + Red + Yellow - Fully restores health and adds an extra 5 percent to total health
Note - You cannot combine more than three herbs together at any one time. It is impossible to combine three Green herbs and a Yellow, for example.
Note 2 - Yellow herbs are useless when you have completely maxed out your health bars. However, there are precisely enough in the game to max out both yours and Ashley's health bars by the end of the game.
Note 3 - White Chicken Eggs restore a small amount of health, Brown Chicken Eggs restore a large amount of health and Gold Chicken Eggs fully restore health. Also, First Aid Sprays fully restore healt
Later on in the game the enemies will, obviously, be tougher. They are intimidating but all you have to do to dispatch them is this: Using your handgun Shoot both of their legs to bring them down, and when they are on their knees you'll have a few seconds to get close and press the a button before they lay down. With the right timing Leon will perform a suplex on the enemy which will cause them to die due to the head injury.
Throughout the game of Resident evil 4 you will come across many different animals including hawks, chickens, snakes, fish, cows and many others, you may not know that they drop some great items. If you ever see a hawk shoot them for ammo, and money. If you come across a chicken they will drop eggs if you shoot them or just follow them around. If you find a snake stab/shoot it and it will drop an egg. And if you come across a fish in the water stab/shoot it and it will replenish health the large one will also sell for 2500 PTS and the small fish for 500 PTS but the fish also take up alot of inventory space. I do not think that cows drop anything. If I find more animal droppers I will post them here.
Beating Otori will allow you to unlock an alternate ending. Note: The only way you can beat him is to break his sword. The first time you beat the game there will be no sword bar where his health bar should be. You will have to start another file and get to the last level again to get the sword bar to appear.
Otori won't be knocked off his balance when you parry his blows, but I reccomend you still try to parry them. His attacks are very fast and it will be hard to dodge them. Once you do parry his blow immediately try to use a special. I suggest scorpion or hammer. Please remember the only way to beat him is to break his sword. Trying to hit him is not an option. (mainly because he has no health bar)
The guns I suggest are infinite launcher ,PRL 412, chicago typewriter and handcannon
There is a way that you don't have to waste so much ammo in the begining and eventually run out. By shooting the Los Ganados in the head or legs, and then running up and kicking them or knifing them, you save lots of ammo, plus you can do it to multiple enemies.
Theres a way that you can make your weapons more powerful than they can be. If you level up everything on a weapon to max, the merchant will give you an "Exclusive" option. This gives the weapon an extra boost to one of it's attributes. Heres what I found out:
Blacktail: power up to 4.8
Semi-auto rifle: firing speed to 0.8
TMP: power up to 1.8
Striker: ammo up to 100
Matilda: ammo up to 100
Mine Thrower: Makes darts home in and have a bigger blast radius
Thats what I know. The rest is up to you to find out. Play with the weapons a little. You might find something useful about those stupind wimpy guns you found in the beginning.
To obtain new controls you'll need a classic controller/gamecube controller
1.start the game as normal
2.while the game is loading take out the nunchuk and replace it with the classic controller/gamecube control
3.voila new controls which are easier for sniping
