Resident Evil 4 Remake: How To Complete The Insect Hive Request

Leon is trained in many disciplines. He’s a cop, special agent, and deadly with just about any blade or firearm you hand him. However, one profession he might be a little unprepared for is an exterminator. When a request comes in, though, he just can’t help himself but give it a try.

Unlike the request to splat a couple of rats, the Insect Hive request requires you to stop this infestation problem at the source. These are no ordinary bugs, and their hives are well hidden, so let our guide help you do some pest control in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

How To Complete The Insect Hive Request In Resident Evil 4 Remake

Resident Evil 4 Remake hive

The Insect Hive request is picked up in Chapter 11 near – you guessed – the Hive. To fully complete it, you will need to find and destroy four nests hidden inside this winding mess of goo and bugs. Each one takes a few pistol shots to pop. Here’s where each of these sacks is hiding.

  1. After picking up the request, turn left and look up to spot this protrusion of yellow goop.
  2. Next, head along the path to the north but stop before it leads into a tunnel. Turn around to look back inward and take out the sack on an overhang behind you.
  3. / 4. The next two are right beside each other. Go through that tunnel, but stop at the exit. Turn toward the middle and you should spot them both hanging from the ceiling.

With that mess all cleaned up, give the Merchant the good news and claim your reward of four Spinels.

Did you manage to clear out all these hives on your own? What about the other Merchant requests? We can help you find more of those pesky Blue Medallions in the Farm, Castle Gate, and Cargo Depot if you’re at a loss for where to look.
