Achievement Guide

For a walkthrough of the game please follow wright3034s helpful tips
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=330586

*Currently being edited as requested*




Road Map by TVthePunisher


Overview:
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 5/10 (provided you use Ashley's Suit of Armor costume for Professional)
- Offline: 12 (1000)
- Approximate amount of time to 1000: 15-20 hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 3 (Professional is unlocked after completing the game once but 2nd playthrough will be Ada's campaign 3rd should be pro.)
- Number of missable achievements: 3 ("What are they worth?" "Do Not Shoot The Water" " A Terrifying Assassin")
- Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No cheats
- Does difficulty affect achievements: Yes ("A Heart of Steel") Easy mode (EU and JPN only) will not unlock Pro
- Glitchy achievements: N/A
- Unobtainable achievements: N/A

I listed it as 15-20 hours based on the casual gamer. If you run through maybe collecting less than 50% of the treasure, don't kill every single Ganado you see and only upgrade some of your weapons to max you can be done with your first playthrough in roughly 5-8 hours. If you take your time, that could reach MAYBE over 10. Regardless, you would then have to complete Seperate Ways which could take anywhere from 3-6 hours and THEN complete Professional mode afterwards.

Professional Mode is unlocked AFTER completing the story. (Easy Mode in the EU and JPN version will not unlock pro mode.) The games are different in each region* yet share the same list.

*German Version is missing Mercenaries and Assignment Ada however they aren't needed for achievements

-Play through the main game, unlocking the 8 story achievements (1 is tied to an easter egg) and try to knock out the "What Are They Worth?" achievement in this run.
-Play through Seperate Ways to unlock "S is for STYLISH!!" and obtain Ashley's Suit of Armor
-Play through Professional with Ashley in the suit of armor. Reasons that this is beneficial:

1.)Ashley is immune to all damage. There are VERY few ways to actually kill Ashley while she is in the armor and all of these are through exploits of in game sequences. I believe one of these is leaving her to be killed by the moving drill machine in Chapter 3 or 4 (I can't recall which)...but I may be wrong, it is possible she might actually just be pushed forward by the machine (like physically through the gate). Anyways, no enemy can hurt her and that's what counts in Professional. This includes El Gigante that attempt to pick her up and squeeze the life out of her, no damage will befall her (correct me if I'm wrong, of course).

2.)The suit of armor that she's wearing is EXTREMELY heavy. One of the main problems in the main game is when Ganados constantly try to carry her off, well this isn't possible anymore (especially during the sequence where you have to snipe Ganados going after her in the Castle). As soon as any ganado picks her up, they'll fall flat on their ass and drop Ashley immediately. In fact, you can stand back and watch as two Ganados constantly try to pick her up only to fail every time.

3.)You do not have to bother healing her, at all...this means that all health items you have on you can be saved for Leon only. This will help especially considering how few hits it takes to kill Leon in Professeional. In fact, you can virtually ignore her aside from puzzles. No longer do you have to hide her from enemies, worry if some are going after her...in fact, she acts as a strategic way to LURE enemies in so you can pick them off with your knife.







1) Start up Resident Evil 4 (Not on Easy) and Playthrough the game following the below solutions. It's all in a Story Order and make sure you earn Do No Shoot The Water! when you get to Del Lago.

2) When you see a Shooting Range play it. Earn all 6 bottle caps from the ranges and you earn some decent money. This can give you a little extra boost to the weapons you want.

3) After beating the game start up the next campaign Separate Ways


It Begins With a Ring 50
Ring the mysterious bell. What happens after that, is up to you.

-Story Related-

Chapter 1-1
During the Village battle near the start of the game you can run inside a building on your left hand side which will trigger a cutscene to Leon blocking the door and a Chainsaw guy will show up. Up stairs is a Shotgun which will aid you in survival. Just survive this until a bell rings in the distance.

Do Not Shoot the Water! 50
Summon the master of the lake. Don't rock the boat.

Chapter 1-3
The Boss fight with Del Lago. Do not start the fight by entering the boat. You can shoot the water a couple times to piss him off. He will come up and kill you doing so.

A Rock and a Hard Place 50
Outmaneuver the rampaging beast, El Gigante.

-Story Related-

Chapter 2-1
The fight with El Gigante. Shoot him until he drops then run up and hit the Action Button to Cut the parasite on his back. Depending on your mashing this may take 2 to 3 times.


Secure the Ballistics 50
Rescue the president's daughter, Ashley. Afterwards, the real fun begins.

-Story Related-

Chapter 2-1
When you rescue Ashley in the Church.

A Bloodline Severed 50
Defeat the village chief in battle.

-Story Related-

Chapter 2-3
At the end of this Chapter is a Boss Fight with the Village Chief. Use an Upgraded TMP to finish the job faster. He is close to death when he breaks in half.

A Terrifying Assassin 150
Turn the tables on Verdugo, the right hand of Salazar.

Chapter 4-1
The fight with Verdugo. This enemy can be avoided but you're going to want to stay and kill him. When he gets close to a liquid nitrogen tank you can knock it over to freeze him. This will buy you time to unload on him. If you have a Rocket Launcher you can kill him in 1 hit if he is frozen.

The Castellan Falls 50
Defeat Salazar, and make your escape from the castle.

-Story Related-

Chapter 4-4
Like it says this is earned by Defeating Salazar in the Castle. Stay to the far right to avoid the tentacle. If you run out of Ammo check the bottom floor.

The Ties That Bind 50
Defeat Krauser, your former partner, in battle.

-Story Related-

Chapter 5-3
The Knife actually hurts him the most. When you get a good chance to get a few knife hits in go for it. Makes the battle end a lot sooner.

We're Going Home 100
Defeat Saddler in battle, and escape from the nightmare.

-Story Related-

Chapter 6-1
The fight with Saddler can be quite annoying but it isn't the hardest of the game. Pay attention to his movements and shoot his eye when it's open. When he hits the floor you can run up and stab his eye in a sequence or use a Magnum shot to the eye to do some nice damage. Use the cranes around the area to save ammo.

When Ada throws Leon the Special Rocket Launcher use that to put the final blow on this guy.


A Heart of Steel150
Clear the game on the highest difficulty.

This is earned by finishing the game on Professional. Select COSTUME 2 for Ashley to have on her Suit of Armor. This makes Ashley invincible so you never have to worry about her dying during your Pro run.

PRO Tip: If an enemy is about to grab you from the front Quick Turn to get grabbed in the back and avoid damage.

PRO Tip 2: A green Open on a door means it will grant you a checkpoint. You can force checkpoints in rooms and kill as many enemies as you want and leave. They do not respawn and you can give yourself breathing room.

PRO Tip 3: If the Merchant dies he won"t come back

The achievement unlocks when you are awarded the Special Weapons.


What Are They Worth?150
Acquire all of the bottle caps in the game.


As you progress through the game you will find blue doors with weapons on them. They are near Merchants. There are 5 in all but visting all 5 is not required. You may enter the last shooting range and earn all bottle caps. Below is a list over requirements. There are 24 bottle caps in all.

3 are located in the Castle and another is located on the Island (near a hallway with enemies constantly throwing TNT) and you can find another near the end of the game can't miss it.

Easy tip: Every Game Type (A,B,C,D) Try to hit all 25 targets first then after that just score above 3000 and you will unlock them all eventually. Hitting 5 Targets in a row will earn you a bonus target.

1) first 9 achievements are story-releated achievements.
2) To unlock all costumes we need to complete the main game AND "Separate Ways"
3) finish the game on the highest possible level - the best way to do this is to select knight costume for Ashley and play easily without being worry abou her.
4) To unlock all figures - comlete shooting on the Tirs with best rating.
5) That's all

Thats basically what I was going to say haha. Easy game if the bottle caps aren't to much trouble for some.

I can't believe the Hand Cannon is not an achievement. THANK GOD! I hated doing that.

If I remember correctly you cannot carry over guns to a harder playthrough as in No typewriter for first pro run.

Right. The only way to play a different difficulty was to create a new game and each time you did, you started out with nothing. You only kept your weapons and items on the particular save you beat the game with.

Bell Achievement:
Personally i don't think that you are right, because Leon doesnt ring it. So its either SOMEONE ELSE (no spoiler ) or they mean the bell you shoot where you get loads of ammo and money (i think it was in the church)
Also the "chainsaw guy" is named Dr. Salvador

Del Lago:
Same as above, when you look at the achievement name it is clear, that you have to shoot at the water a few times to summon him. I believe that they mean this and not killing him

Verdugo:
Collect the RPG a few chapters before and keep it. Freeze him with the tanks to triple the damage and use the RPG - One Hit

Krauser:
It helps to knife his knees to make him go down, i know that it is not the actual battle (in the ruins), but that part is much harder

Saddler:
Use the crane to make him kneel at the end you can decide if you want to use the "special weapon", if not it can be transferred to a new game+



Also you should add the "unmissable, because its part of the story" thing in the achievement descriptions

I see what your getting at by why would the first achievement in the game belong to Ada. Also I know Chainsaw guys name but how many other people would understand when I say "Dr.Salvador approaches Leon".

Also when has shooting the water summoned him??? Never heard of that I might have to try it.

Thanks for the Verdugo tip.

Keeping the special rocket launcher has nothing to do with the achievement which is why I left it out.

Didnt want to say her name Maybe it is story related, but the description says "Ring the bell" and basically you don't ring it with Leon in the beinning, guess we will see it, when the game is released

Dr. Salvador sounds much cooler =(

You have to stand at the end of the balk and shoot ~5 times in the water, then the monster will grant you your wish to die fast

I know that the RPG doesnt match in, but i sooo love RE4 and just want to talk about it :> Declare it as tactic or smth

Just remembered that the easiest way to kill Krauser is to dodge his attacks (QTE) and knife him afterwards, should kill him in a few seconds

Yea I questioned the fact that Leon doesn't touch the bell yet the first one on the list is to touch it... I can't wait to play RE4 to find out.

This game is amazing I can see why you would want to talk about it haha it's just that good a game. I would love to play this game again for probably the last time unless it gets remade again haha.

correct me if i'm wrong but don't you have to fight El Gigante before the choice bit and won't the achievement be for that instead seen as there in chronological order instead of the latter one
you kill the first one on the way back from the lake in the trapped area where if you let the dog go it comes to your aid

You are right, but you just kill him there. The achievement says something about "outmaneuver" him and that matches with the point where El Gigante chases you

Wow, this is going to be an easy 1000. As many times as I played RE4 in it's many previous incarnations (GameCube, PS2, Wii), this is going to be a walk in the park.

I'm already going to give a rating of 3/10 of difficulty for this, simply because Professional mode really isn't that hard, given that you've played through the game a few times to understand enemy movement, wave formation, (mini) boss weaknesses and tactics and have an understanding to where your pesetas should be going in terms of upgrades (ignore the TMP, please, for the love of god, ignore the TMP).

Those multiple playthorughs shouldn't be a problem, because RE4 is a fantastic game, and you should be compelled to play through it multiple times, not just for the achievements, but for the sheer fun of it.

Well, a couple of things should make sense from what the previous posters mentioned about certain achievements, but here's what can be missable, just 2 though. (Or maybe more if you choose in different paths.)

"Terrifying Assassin" (Since you can just escape from him, but wont get you the achievement) and "What are they Worth". (If you don't feel like getting all the caps though in 1 play.)

On the gamecube and PS2 if you selected to load your save back up (new game +) you then had to select the costumes and then the difficulty.
Also why does every one go on about the typewriter machine gun?
The handcannon for 0 units is by far the better weapon, especialy with how much space it takes up. PLUS the light cannon (can't remember it's name) you get is absolutely class, and a god send when it comes to groups of enemies.

The only things i have to point out that haven't already, is the fact that the costume achievement, empesizes the S. Making me question wheather we will need to S rank the game/chapters. This won't be easy with the typewriter as it's accuracy is non existant.

I know i'm going to get slated for this, but i thing the TMP fully upgraded is far better than the typewriter, mainly because it can be used as a pistol, head shot - stager enemy - go in for a hand to hand/knife attack. Fine the typewriter is powerful, and unlimited ammo, but the lack of accuracy had cost me against shield enemies or plagas enemies. Where as the TMP has never let me down.

Chapter 2-3
At the crossroad where you must pick Right (El Gigante) or Left (Bella Sisters). Pick the Right route and escape El Gigante as fast as you can.
I'm not sure about this, but this achievement sounds like you have to defeat him the first time you are forced to fight him. I could be wrong, tough...

Exactly. This is what I thought. If the achievements are in the story order, then that one is the one where you have to fight him, where the Ganados free him and then got killed by the El Gigante himself.

We can't really tell which one is but the evidence point that our suggestion is probably the correct one.

If you guys want to make this a harder 1000G, do a knife/handgun run and try to combine it with no damage. I succeeded in it and let me tell ya, you have to know EVERYTHING...Saddler's a real bitch until you figure out how to avoid getting hit at all and just slash away. Regardless, I can't wait to add this to my completed games...and I'm so happy it's a 1000G instead of like...200 ^___^ thank you Capcom, you did something right. And you didnt' make any insanely difficult ones either, yay!

Here's a few things I'd like to add in:

Overview:
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 4/10 (provided you use Ashley's Suit of Armor costume for Professional)
- Offline: 12 (1000)
- Approximate amount of time to 1000: 10-15 hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed:2 (Professional is unlocked after completing the game once)
- Number of missable achievements: Two ("What are they worth?" and "Don't Shoot the Water")
- Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No cheats
- Does difficulty affect achievements: Yes ("A Heart of Steel")
- Glitchy achievements: N/A
- Unobtainable achievements: N/A

I listed it as 10-15 hours based on the casual gamer. If you run through maybe collecting less than 50% of the treasure, don't kill every single Ganado you see and only upgrade some of your weapons to max you can be done with your first playthrough in roughly 5-8 hours. If you take your time, that could reach MAYBE over 10. Regardless, you would then have to complete Seperate Ways which could take anywhere from 3-6 hours and THEN complete Professional mode afterwards.

I mainly played the Gamecube version and as I remember, Professional Mode was unlocked AFTER completing the game normally. I don't remember from the Wii version nor have I played the PS2 version (I owned the PC but never played it), so maybe they might have changed it to where Professional is available from the getgo. But for an easier time, it's recommended to take this path.

-IMPORTANT: Before the end of Chapter 1-3 you will encounter large open area outside of a massive lake, there is a nearby typewriter that you should use to save immediately. Head towards the dock but don't get on the boat, instead face the water and shoot at it 5-7 times...trust me, doing this will unlock the "Don't Shoot the Water" achievement which is missable if you just continue on without doing this. By the way, you're going to reload that save afterwards..you'll see why.
-Play through the main game, unlocking the 8 story achievements and try to knock out the "What Are They Worth?" achievement in this run.
-Play through Seperate Ways to unlock "S is for STYLISH!!" and obtain Ashley's Suit of Armor
-Play through Professional with Ashley in the suit of armor. Reasons that this is beneficial:

1.)Ashley is immune to all damage. There are VERY few ways to actually kill Ashley while she is in the armor and all of these are through exploits of in game sequences. I believe one of these is leaving her to be killed by the moving drill machine in Chapter 3 or 4 (I can't recall which)...but I may be wrong, it is possible she might actually just be pushed forward by the machine (like physically through the gate). Anyways, no enemy can hurt her and that's what counts in Professional. This includes El Gigante that attempt to pick her up and squeeze the life out of her, no damage will befall her (correct me if I'm wrong, of course).

2.)The suit of armor that she's wearing is EXTREMELY heavy. One of the main problems in the main game is when Ganados constantly try to carry her off, well this isn't possible anymore (especially during the sequence where you have to snipe Ganados going after her in the Castle). As soon as any ganado picks her up, they'll fall flat on their ass and drop Ashley immediately. In fact, you can stand back and watch as two Ganados constantly try to pick her up only to fail every time.

3.)You do not have to bother healing her, at all...this means that all health items you have on you can be saved for Leon only. This will help especially considering how few hits it takes to kill Leon in Professeional. In fact, you can virtually ignore her aside from puzzles. No longer do you ahve to hide her from enemies, worry if some are going after her...in fact, she acts as a strategic way to LURE enemies in so you can pick them off with your knife.

A Rock and a Hard Place 50
Outmaneuver the rampaging beast, El Gigante


i think that this achievment has to be done by the second approach because it say "A Rock" and "Outmaneuver" when i think back i know that i loved it in this section to direct the giant under the rocks and shoot the wooden things so that the rock crushes on his head i loved this game i played through it 9 times or so on my cube can't wait for this to be out

I played all 4 versions. The Wii version is best. If the game is like the wii version (minus the point and get easy shots with the wii remote) your road map is correct. Please make a few edits on it when the game comes out. I will add it in.

We can't really tell which one is but the evidence point that our suggestion is probably the correct one.

Incorrect. You KILL him first then later run from a second one.

Note: Assuming that the game wants you to exit through the door at the end of the Right path for the achievement to pop, it's recommended to probably take the Left Path first to pick up all the goodies. Alternatively, there is a typewriter just outside of both of the paths...if you save before going for the achievement and letting it pop, you can simply reload in order to score a kill on the Gigante afterwards. Then you can take the left path if you choose, it's all according to preference.

I can confirm that the first El Gigante fight is near the middle of 2-1. After Leon passes out in the Cabin upon defeating Del Lago, you'll make your way back to the village coming across the first El Gigante of the game in an area you visited previously near the end of 1-3. This fight offers no rocks aside from it technically being in a Quarry, so killing this Gigante has little to no relation to the achievement:

A Rock and a Hard Place 50
Outmaneuver the rampaging beast, El Gigante.


After 2-2 (in which you and Luis defend the cabin from a Ganado invasion), you'll start up 2-3 and be outside of the cabin. There is a lever that can be pulled to open one of two paths leading to a large number of Ganados plus the Bella Sisters (female equivalent to Dr. Salvador, basically two chainsaw wielding maniacs) or to a large open area, seemingly empty only to reveal a El Gigante chasing after you. Regardless, both paths have a key somewhere within the level (located within a building on the Right path, the El Gigante path...and on one of the Bella Sisters, for the Left path).

Basically the achievement describes "outmanuevering" the Gigante, it doesn't say anything about killing him. In all honesty it's possible to get every important item (including treasures) in this area without killing him, you just have to be very fast and know where things are (meaning don't chase after a green herb in a hut if you don't need it). But the focus of the achievement appears to be outmanuevering him which is tricky to do if you don't slow him down with the boulder above.

So basically for this achievement, I assume what needs to be done is focus on the very first door you come across, blowing off the chains (a shutgun or explosive such as a grenade works best, knife takes several swings which you don't have time for)...then turn around and search for the boulder above.

You will see a wood support holding the bolder in place, that the red dot from your aiming sight will land on...you'll want to shoot this (not yet). There are two ways to slow down the Gigante with the boulder, the first (and most efficent way) is to wait until he's JUST before where the boulder is so that when you shoot the support, it will land ontop of its head. This will buy you anywhere from 10-20 seconds to turn around and shoot the chain off the next door (from memory, I can't remember if there's a second door here or not x.x) The other method is to shoot the support, causing the boulder to land in front of the Gigante...it will take maybe less than 5 seconds for it to stop, wind up its fist and destroy the boulder...giving you only a short amount of time to continue on your way.

Regardless, clearly the best option is using the boulder to hit the Gigante. After busting open the door, you'll want to run into the cabins searching for the Old key (along with picking up extra items along the way). When you've found it, if enough time persists you can search above this area for a bucket hanging overhead. Shoot it to reveal a treasure that you can sell for some Pesetas later. If however the Gigante is on your tail, it's faster to now just use one of your Flash Grenades on it. This will cause it to be stunned for about 10 seconds, giving you more than enough time to make it to the end of the area (and shoot the chains off another door if there is one). Simply open the door at the end and the achievement should pop (if the theory persists that you don't KILL the gigante).

EXTRA NOTE: If for some reason killing this Gigante also triggers the achievement to pop, there are several easy methods to insure a quick defeat:

1.) Use the boulder, then fire on the Gigante until the Plagas is revealed. You can then either shoot it or climb on it's back, knife swinging (your choice). Rinse and repeat til death. Flash grenades work wonders here too, if you have them USE THEM.


2.) If you have enough Pesetas on hand, buy up the rocket launcher from the merchant. As soon as the beast appears, one rocket should be enough to kill it. If for some reason it doesn't die, use the boulder to finish it off and/or blast away at the plagas on it's back for a quick kill.

Special Note for Professional: Let the Gigante pick up Ashley in her Suit of Armor, while it's busy trying to kill her (which it can't) you can either fire a rocket at it or shoot it a lot. Your preference, eitherway using her as a lure is beneficial enough to you in order to make the fight easier.

Not recommending to stick all of this in the guide ;>__> considering how lengthy it is. But I'm positive that your description for it is right and you DON'T kill the second Gigante, rather you escape it (possibly having to use the boulder for the achievement as well).
