Leon might only begin his journey with a single pistol and a knife, but very quickly he will amass a small arsenal of pistols, shotguns, rifles, and even high explosives. Of all the guns from the original game, perhaps the most beloved that fans wanted to see back in Resident Evil 4 Remake was the good-old Red9. The good news is that, yes, it is back and just as strong as you remember.
There are two ways you can get your hands on this powerful pistol – one is far superior to the other, but highly missable. Let’s go over both methods and show you the best way to acquire the Red9 in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
How to Get The Red9 in Resident Evil 4 Remake
The easier of the two ways to get the Red9 is to simply wait until you hit Chapter 5 and purchase it from the Merchant. He will start selling it at a discounted rate of 9,800 Pesetas, but if you don’t pick it up while on sale the price will skyrocket up to 14,000. You should only resort to buying it if you happen to miss the other method of getting the Red9.
The other method is grabbing it for the low, low price of free! While exploring the lake in Chapter 4, you can actually find the Red9 in a chest waiting to be claimed. Simply boat on over to the shipwreck in the center of the lake. Once onboard, head toward the bow and crack open a chest beside the cabin with your favorite handgun inside.
The Red9, while great, is far from the only pistol option you have in Resident Evil 4 Remake. It’s always worth experimenting with others like the Punisher and Matilda, which we can help you get as well. Whichever gun you go with, don’t forget to give them upgrades to make sure you don’t fall behind the power curve!
