(CTN NEWS) – Upgrading a gun in the Resident Evil 4 remake entails increasing all of its stats.
From Level 1 to Level 5, you can upgrade any weapon in the game, and when you do, the Exclusive Perk, a special function for that particular gun, is unlocked.
The Resident Evil 4 remake handles the weapon upgrades at the Merchant locations similarly to the original.
To level up a weapon, the player must speak with the enigmatic merchant, visit the Tune-Up department, and spend enough Pesetas there. However, the full potential of a maxed-out gun also requires an Exclusive Upgrade.
How to Fully Upgrade Weapons in Resident Evil 4 Remake
Only when the Exclusive Upgrade is equipped and the weapon’s primary stats—Fire Power, Rate of Fire, Reload Speed, and Capacity—are Level-5 is the weapon considered to be maxed out.
There are alternate ways to obtain the Exclusive Perks, even though boosting the fundamental stats costs Pesetas.
It could be purchased using Pesetas, exchanging Spinels for Golden Tickets at the Merchant, or making in-game microtransactions.
Boost A Gun’s Statistics To Unlock Its Exclusive Perk
Investing Pesetas in a weapon is one way to upgrade it. The Exclusive Upgrade can be unlocked by purchasing all of the Tune-Up deals from the merchant.
However, remember that this approach will cost you at least 400,000 Pesetas for most weapons.
Purchase A Ticket For An Exclusive Upgrade From The Merchant
If a player has an Exclusive Upgrade Ticket, they can acquire a gun’s unique perk regardless of the level of the gun. The ticket costs 30 Spinels each and is available in the Merchant’s Trade area.
Obtaining the special benefits requires the player to purchase all other upgrades first.
But even if it doesn’t max out other metrics, the Exclusive Upgrade Ticket grants them early access to this feature. (All it does is start the special benefit early.)
Purchase Exclusive Upgrades at an Additional Fee
Players can now purchase Exclusive Upgrade Tickets with real-world money thanks to the 1.04 release.
They must purchase a single ticket for $2.99 or a package of five tickets for $9.99 by going to the game’s Add-Ons. The quickest means to fully improve any weapon at the moment are through these microtransactions.
Cost to Completely Upgrade a Weapon
The Resident Evil 4 remake typically costs 400,000 Pesetas to max out a weapon. However, the cost can increase based on the weapon’s rarity and strength.
