Once you’re done with the big fish request in Resident Evil 4 Remake, don’t forget to take a short detour to the middle of the lake: one of the best guns in the game is waiting for you, snug in one of these boxes . If you pass there during another game, the gun will be replaced by a treasure, always good to get.
Where can you find the Red9 gun?
During Chapter 4, in solving the puzzles of the Shrine Caves and recovering the last hexagonal piece, you can roam freely thanks to the boat recovered in the beginning. Go to the location shown in the image below, you should find a wreck with a chest at the end. Inside is the Red9 pistol, a weapon that will be one of your staunchest allies for the rest of your mission. Make sure you have enough space in your briefcase to carry it and sell your base gun to the merchant. It should be noted that once the Red9 is in your pocket, you don’t have to worry about purchasing a gun anymore.
Why is it the best weapon?
Due to its stats and its good compromise between maneuverability and power, the Red9 can be further improved thanks to the accessory offered for sale by the merchant in the spinel shop. It is the best weapon in its category, especially thanks to the special improvement that will increase its power by 1.5. But beware, it will cost you an awful lot of pesetas: you will have to spend 100,000 pesetas to buy this skill, which is the value of the best combination of treasures in the game. there’s no denying it: pistol ammunition is the one you’ll encounter the most during your exploration, having a good gun will greatly improve your chances of survival in the most dangerous arenas.
