Resident Evil 4 Remake: How To Kill Regenerators

Players need to face many horrifying creatures in Resident Evil 4 Remake, but nothing strikes terror into many people’s hearts like Regenerators. These bio-weapons are officially called Regeneradores, but fans love to call them Regenerators, and for a good reason; they have fast regenerative abilities that make them almost unkillable.

You will encounter these monsters for the first time during Chapter 13 when exploring the Dissection area as you attempt to find the keycard. You may already start to panic as you hear its labored breathing, but there is no need to worry! This guide can tell you the best strategies to quickly take down Regenerators in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

The only way for you to defeat Regenerators is by destroying all Plagas inhabiting their bodies. If you don’t do this, they will simply keep healing. The fastest way to discover their locations is by using the Biosensor Scope, which you can obtain in the Incubation Lab. Unfortunately, the area is locked behind an electronic door, and you need the Level 2 Keycard to open it.

Here is a piece of bad news for you: you will need to fight two of these monsters to obtain the keycard, and, unless you’re playing in New Game Plus mode, you won’t have the Scope at this point. Thankfully, it is still possible to kill Regenerators, but you will likely use up a lot of ammo in the process.

Since you cannot find out the exact positions of the parasites in a Regenerator, you will need to shoot the monster in random places and hope that you manage to hit one. When facing these creatures, it is best to use weapons with wide attack ranges, like the Riot Gun. You can also temporarily stun the bio-weapon by shooting off its legs, but be aware that it can still move and attack you.

One way to reveal a Regenerator’s weak spots is by using a knife. You can try slicing this creature from behind, and if you hit the spot near a parasite, it will emit a reddish glow. Do note that you will likely use up your knife’s durability, so be sure that you have several substitutes in your inventory.

Here’s another important warning about Renegerators: they can mutate further into Iron Maidens in later Chapters. These bio-weapons are equipped with sharp needles that grow across their skins, and they will explode when you kill them, which can deal AoE damage if you are too close. Luckily, you can easily defeat an Iron Maiden by landing a headshot with a ranged weapon and destroying the parasite inside its head.
