Resident Evil 4 Remake Best Weapons & Their Location

Below is a list of the best weapons you can find in the Resident Evil 4 remake, and their respective location.

Best Handgun


The Red9 is the best pistol available in the Resident Evil 4. It’s a classic weapon from the original that has been brought back for the remake. While it does exhibit some heavy recoil by default, it can be improved considerably through upgrades. A fully upgraded Red9 packs a serious punch, taking down Ganados in no time.

The Red9 is located in the center of the lake in Chapter 4. Once you have refueled the boat and are able to use it, look for a shipwreck in the middle of the lake. You’ll find the weapon inside a box on the wreckage.

Best Shotgun


The Striker the most useful shotgun in Resident Evil 4 Remake. It boasts a high ammo capacity and semi-automation properties, allowing you to deal major damage to enemies fairly quickly. While it is a bit lacking in terms of reload speed and accuracy, it more than makes up for it with its fire rate and damage spread at close range.

The Striker can be acquired rather easily, should you have enough pesetas (the game’s in-game currency). It can be bought for a grand total of 38,000 from the merchant.

Most Powerful Weapon

Rocket Launcher

The rocket launcher is your go-to weapon for dealing with powerful bosses. It deals some serious damage, often doing away with a boss phase in a single shot. The only drawback is that it’s a little slow to use and takes up a lot of space in your briefcase. Nevertheless, it is a very important weapon to keep in your arsenal.

The rocket launcher can be acquired rather easily, should you have enough pesetas. It can be bought for a grand total of 50,000 from the merchant. If you happen to be in possession of the Leon w/Rocket Launcher charm, the cost is reduced by 20%.

Best Knife

Primal Knife

The Primal Knife is one of the most useful weapons to have in the Resident Evil 4 remake. All other knives are breakable, but, with the exclusive upgrade applied, the Primal Knife has unlimited durability! With this weapon in your possession, you’ll never have to worry about breaking the knife in combat and losing the ability to perform a parry.

To acquire the Primal knife, you’ll need to find and shoot down all 16 Castellans. With that task out of the way, you can buy this rather useful weapon for 1000 CP via the Bonus Menu.
