Resident Evil 4 Remake: Best Weapons To Use Exclusive Upgrade

Learn about the best Exclusive Weapon Upgrades in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

In the world of Resident Evil 4 Remake, exclusive weapon upgrades are the key to survival. From the hilariously overpowered to the downright ridiculous, these upgrades will surely make your playthrough a little more interesting. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the best exclusive weapon upgrades in the game.

The Merchant in Chapter 9 has exclusive upgrades. However, if you’re a pro at Professional difficulty, you get them right off the bat, of course, from the new playthrough. You can upgrade your weapons fully or trade 30 spinels for an exclusive upgrade ticket.

You need to consider some more things: First, figure out when the weapon becomes available. Second, use it frequently to make sure it’s viable. Third, check if it has a unique perk worth leveling up with an Exclusive Upgrade Ticket. And finally, once you have the best upgrades, you can start customizing to fit your playstyle. Now, let’s check out some of the best upgrades you can consider in Residentdent Evil 4 Remake.

4. Time to Punish

  • Cost: 70,000 Pesetas

First up, we have the Punisher. This handgun is perfect for taking out enemies with ease, thanks to its piercing ability. With the exclusive upgrade, it gains the ability to penetrate up to five enemies at once, making it perfect for taking out a pesky group of Ganados in one shot. And that will cost you 70,000 Pesetas. You can get the Punisher from the merchant in the village early on in the game.

3. Double-Trouble with W-870

  • Type: Shotgun
  • Exclusive Upgrade: Doubles power stat
  • Cost: 80,000 Pesetas

W-870 Shotgun may seem underwhelming at first glance, but don’t be fooled, as it has the potential to become an absolute powerhouse with its Exclusive Upgrade. Boasting the cheapest upgrades of all the shotguns in the game, the W-870 is an affordable option for those looking to increase their firepower. And once you’ve fully upgraded it or scrounged up an Exclusive Upgrade Ticket, get ready for some serious “boom”—doubling its power stat, the W-870 transforms into the undisputed strongest Shotgun available.

Sure, you’ll have to deal with slower reload and fire rates, but that’s a small price to pay for such devastating strength. So keep your eyes peeled for opportunities to give your W-870 the upgrade it deserves—remember, the puny shall inherit nothing! Except for it costs 80,000 Pesetas.

2. 007; Killer 007

Next, we have the semiautomatic Killer7. This magnum packs a serious punch, and with the exclusive upgrade, it becomes even deadlier. It gains increased damage and a much larger clip size, making it a true powerhouse against even the toughest of foes. The exclusive upgrade increases the damage output of the Killer7, making it a one-shot kill for almost all enemies. And this one-shot-kill perk comes at  77,700 Pesetas.

1. Assault with CQBR

  • Type: Assault Rifle
  • Exclusive Upgrade: 1.5X Power multiplier
  • Cost: 100,000 Pesetas

Looks like we have a fanatic of the CQBR assault rifle in the Resident Evil 4 Remake. I mean, who wouldn’t want to carry around a weapon that can take down the Ganados with ease, right? And let’s not forget its fully automatic rate of fire that will likely lead to you wasting a lot of ammo—what could be more fun than that? Plus, it has a Precision rate of 5.00 and 3x power against weak points, so you can really enjoy those satisfying headshots.

Sure, the rarity of Rifle Ammo might be a bit of a pain, but who needs pesetas when you can spend your hard-earned Spinels to unlock its Exclusive Upgrade for a 1.5X Power multiplier? By any chance, if the Pesetas are all you have to offer, you will need 100,000. And forget about other Rifles like the Stingray—they require way too many expensive upgrades to reach the same level of power.

And that is all I had for the Best Weapons to use Exclusive Upgrades in Resident Evil 4 Remake. Before heading back to your den, let me ask you this; did you find the solutions to all the puzzles? Or do you know about all the weapons and how to get them? Check out.
