Resident Evil 4 Remake: How To Survive The Cabin Fight

During Chapter 5 of Resident Evil 4 Remake, you will be trapped inside a cabin with Luis and Ashley as the three of you try to survive an attack from the Ganados. Although it may sound similar to the village fight in Chapter 1, the battle is much more challenging due to the cramped space you are put into. If you want to know you to survive the cabin fight in Resident Evil 4 Remake, you’ve come to the right place, because this guide can give you some tips that will help you!

Resident Evil 4 Remake Cabin Fight Guide

The first thing you want to do at the start of the fight is block as many windows as possible using available materials. You will be able to find a bunch of planks on the table, but you can also use the wooden shelf near one of the windows.

These barricades won’t hold for long, but will give you time to collect resources in the arena, which is almost impossible to do once the battle starts. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to place the planks if the Ganados are trying to enter. So you’ll need to shoot them first and make them back off.

You generally want to refrain from using your shotgun on regular enemies. It is best to save the ammo for the second phase, where a Brute will spawn. Once you defeat him, the fight will end shortly after.

Unlike in the village fight where you are alone, you’ll be accompanied by Luis, who will help you fend off the attackers. It is recommended that you stay close to him, since he can help you out in many ways.

For example, if you stagger a Ganado, Luis can deal a melee kick in your stead. He’ll also attack your opponent if one of them manages to grab hold of you. Not only that, the man will even give you some ammunition, which is very helpful since dozens of enemies will relentlessly appear.

Still, the best way to save your ammo is to stop the Ganados from shifting into Plaga Guadaña mode. You can know when they’re about to turn if their bodies begin to twitch after you kill them. You must get closer and stab them with your knife to prevent them from transforming.

If you’re overwhelmed, you can try going to the second floor and camping on the stairs. It is a good position to make the enemies huddle close together, which is your cue to throw any grenades you have.

Once you kill enough enemies, the second phase will be triggered. It will be marked with a cutscene where a Ganado will prop up a ladder to a window on the second floor.

You must immediately head upstairs and kick down any ladders that you discover. You really don’t want to get attacked from both the first and second floors!

At some point, the Brute will spawn, and he is basically the main boss of this battle. Your priority will be to defeat him, and you can simply ignore other opponents. He hits hard and can easily stun you, so keeping your distance is best.

This is the time to pull out your shotgun, and you just need to keep firing at him until he dies. You can also constantly move from the first to the second floor by jumping from the opening near the ladder and climbing the stairs again. This will ensure that you won’t get cornered by the Brute and will always have ample distance between the two of you.
