While the recently released demo for the remake of Resident Evil 4 mostly serves to let players get a small taste of the full game, it also contains some deviously hidden secrets, including the demo’s best weapon. Continuing a Resident Evil trend of remaking old classics in a modern style, Resident Evil 4‘s presents perhaps the remake series’ biggest challenge yet, with the original RE4 being an almost universally beloved classic.
As the full game draws closer to release, it’s become clear that Resident Evil 4 is changing the original’s gameplay in significant ways, with most changes being on full display in Resident Evil 4‘s Chainsaw Demo. Notably, the remake makes significant changes to Leon’s capabilities in combat – he can move while aiming, quickly swap weapons without visiting the inventory, and even parry enemy attacks with his knife (at the cost of limited durability). But while streamlined combat will help most players get through the demo’s short duration, there’s also a particularly hard-to-find secret that gives access to its most powerful weapon.
The RE4 Chainsaw Demo Has A Powerful Hidden Weapon
The Resident Evil 4 Chainsaw Demo allows players to access the pistol, shotgun, and grenades that would normally be available in the game’s opening section, but also contains a third obtainable gun – a fully upgraded TMP. The weapon far outstrips the demo’s pistol and shotgun, making taking down Ganados a breeze – and it can be invaluable for taking on the RE4 remake demo’s secret hard mode, as obtaining it once then carries it over to player’s inventory on any subsequent runs. However, actually getting to the gun takes making some seemingly counterproductive decisions, making it a particularly difficult secret to find naturally.
How To Get The TMP In The Resident Evil 4 Remake Demo
To find the TMP in the Resident Evil 4 demo, players will need to discard their entire inventory before opening the village gate. This includes everything – the pistol, the knife, and any consumables or ammo that have been picked up. After heading into the village with an empty inventory, players will find a normally-closed well on the right side now accessible, with a ladder leading into an underground cave with the TMP, a low-durability knife, and plenty of ammo. Similar to the clues leading up to the RE4 demo’s release, it’s a convoluted secret, but one that drastically increases the demo’s replayability, especially for any players looking to kill the infamous Chainsaw Man.
As Resident Evil 4 Remake draws closer to release, the particulars of its demo are still being teased out by the community. Discoveries like the secret TMP, or the code that allows players to access the otherwise random hard mode make for a demo that’s surprisingly more than just a short glimpse at the full game – and will do plenty to tide over eager fans until the Resident Evil 4 remake’s full release on March 24, 2023.
