Resident Evil Mercenaries mode has the option to play four different characters. However, you will need to unlock them first. Here is how you can do it.

Mercenaries mode was one of the alternative modes of the original Resident Evil 4. Since then, the mode has made a return in RE Village. But the RE 4 remake didn’t arrive with the mode. Rather, a DLC update has added this mode to the main game.

The DLC update brings many changes to the game, mainly related to the mode. There are new things to unlock after this update, and some old weapons get an alternative way to be unlocked through this mode.

In the Mercenaries mode, you will choose a character to play with. By far, the most important unlock for this mode is the “Characters.” The mode comes with four different characters for you to choose and play with. But the catch is you will need to unlock them first. So here we will tell you how exactly you can unlock all the characters in RE 4 Mercenaries mode.

Unlocking All Characters in Mercenaries Mode

As we have said, this mode has four different characters: Leon, Luis, Krauser, and Hunk. You need to unlock one character at a time, but Leon comes unlocked with the mode. It is possible to unlock the last three with three different matches. To unlock these characters, you need to do the following:

  • Luis Sera: Unlocks after getting A-rank with Leon
  • Jack Krauser: Unlocks after getting A-rank with Luis
  • Hunk: Unlocks after getting A-rank with Krauser

While unlocking the characters, you can play on any maps you want. As long as you are playing the right character and getting the required score, the next character will unlock after the match. And in case you are wondering how the score works with rank, here is a list of it to make sure you have the required score:

  • C – 0 to 49,9999 points
  • B – 50,000 to 99,9999 points
  • A – 100,000 to 199,99 points
  • S – 200,000 to 499,999 points

As long as you are playing moderately well, getting an A rank in this game mode is not much of a problem. If you want to get to 100,000 faster, you can rely on the combo to get there. Each character has a certain loadout and excels at certain tasks. So make sure to check each one out to find your favorite Mercenaries character in the game.
