Resident Evil 4 Remake: How To Complete The Merciless Knight Request

By the time you reach the Castle in Resident Evil 4 Remake, you might think you’ve seen the craziest things the game has in store for you. After all, you’ve already fought villagers with sacks on their heads, lake monsters, and whatever the heck Mendez is, so there couldn’t be much left to see, right?

Well, the Merciless Knight Request might just make you rethink that. This is another hunting Request, much like the Savage Mutt Request, and is just as challenging. As you’ll see, this knight isn’t playing fair, so even the odds by checking out our guide!

How To Complete The Merciless Knight Request In Resident Evil 4 Remake

Your objective for this Request is to find and take out a certain knight inside the Mausoleum, which is where you previously went as Ashley to solve a puzzle. As you backtrack through the area, you will encounter a golden suit of armor, flanked by two normal suits of armor, moving on its own. Well, not quite on its own. They’re being puppeted by parasites, but that might make it even more creepy!

They must have been master armor crafters back in the day, because trying to shoot through the armor won’t get you anywhere. For the two lesser knights, you will want to parry them with your knife to give you a clear shot at the squishy parasites inside. The Merciless Knight itself is a much tougher customer since the gold armor covers far more of the parasite.

Your best angle of attack is to get behind the armor and shoot at its exposed neck space. A good hit or two will cause it to stagger so you can give it a powerful kick! Flash grenades are particularly useful here to stun it so you can run around to its back.

Once the main parasite pops out, finish it off and bid farewell to this false knight.

Turn in the Request and Leon will be rewarded with eight Spinel, which is certainly a reward befitting a true knight.
