Resident Evil 4: How To Get Red9 Secret Weapon

Resident Evil 4 features plenty of visually stunning explorable environments that are brimming with treasures and other secret items that will come in handy as you battle through the game's many tenacious foes. 

One such secret weapon is Red9, a powerful semi-automatic handgun. It's easily the most powerful sidearm in the game, and unlike the 2005's original, you can't buy it from the merchant. As such, here's our guide explaining how to get the Red9 handgun in Resident Evil 4.

The Red9 handgun in the Resident Evil 4 remake is kept inside a chest in an old boat in the middle of the lake. If you buy the treasure map from the merchant that highlights all the hidden treasures in the village region, the boat's location will be marked on your map. 

Make sure to grab this weapon before reaching the castle in chapter 7, as you won't be able to go to this location after this. As mentioned previously, the Red9 is the most powerful handgun in Resident Evil 4. However, it has a very high recoil. If you prefer something with less power and less recoil rate, the Punisher is better suited to you. 

Strangely enough, Luis Sera, the enigmatic researcher you encounter multiple times throughout the story, also wields this elegant sidearm. Later in the game, you can purchase the Red9 stock from the merchant to increase the weapon's accuracy and make it more useful. 

And that's it! That concludes our guide on how to get the Red9 in Resident Evil 4.
