1.Introduction

-----------------------------

Whats up everybody? Welcome to the Resident evil 4 weapons FAQ, this is generally
for people who need info about each weapon that 
you will mainly seek or obtain in the game. So if you would like to find out more
or would like to contact me then please scroll 
down to the contact info. Thanks.

-----------------------------------

2.Knife

-----------------------------------

KNIFE: the Knife would always stay in your inventory, so this means that you can't
sell it or discard it. Its not strong enough 
to take down enemies in one go,but it is useful on some enemies that are at a
close range from you. The knife is very useful for 
breaking through glass, breaking crates/barrels, locks and disabling bear traps.

-----------------------------------

3.Handguns

-----------------------------------

1. HANDGUN: This is Leon's original gun, this has a sufficient rate of firing and
is completely effective for fending off Ganados from 
close distance, there's also plenty of ammo lurking around everywhere.

4. Blacktail: When it is developed (upgraded), this can carry the most ammo out of
every handgun and is generally the best 
handgun that you can have.

5. Matilda: This gun is designed after the original Handgun Leon had during
Resident evil 2. It is able to go for a three-round
fire, leaving it the quickest handgun in the game, even though it is simple to
reduce ammo. You can purchase this gun from the merchant 
after finishing the game once.

2. Riot gun: You should definitely alternate the shotgun with this sooner or later
because it is more stronger from distance and can 
carry more ammo.

5.Rifles

enemies down with only a single shot from a long

6.Magnums

--------------------------------
 
1. Broken Butterfly:  A very strong gun, but the ammo is really hard to find. Its
extremely good against tougher antagonists and 
bosses. There are two ways of earning yourself one of these, that could be either
purchasing it from the merchant or finding one 
at a fountain in chapter four.

2. Killer7: Has a much better reloading speed and power than the Broken Butterfly.
It is best to save it for the final boss battle 
which is against Lord Saddler.

game but it is not specifically powerful enough to take 
loads of eneimes down.

2. Mine Thrower: Mines are launched by this weapon. Just a little similar to a
standard grenade as it will explode and damage any 
enemies nearby after a short period of time. Unfortunately, ammo is really hard to
find and therefore, its rare.

Ammo type: M.Thrower Ammo

3. Rocket Launcher: With a single fire, it will cause serious damage to anyone
with this strong weapon, but you can only launch one 
shot because there is no specific ammo available for it, so basically this means
that, once you've used it, you cannot use it again,
you simply cannot upgrade it or anything.

Ammo type: N/A
Value: 8,000ptas


4. Rocket Launcher (Special): Very similar compared to the original rocket
launcher but this one is valued much more and a bit more
stronger.

Ammo type: N/A
Value: N/A

5. Infinite Rocket Launcher: Exactly like the original rocket launcher, but the
difference between this rocket launcher and the 
standard rocket launcher is that this one has infinite quantity of rockets. It can
stay in your stock forever.

Ammo type: N/A
Value: 1,000,000ptas 

6. Chicago Typewriter: This secret weapon is available after finishing the
'Assignment Ada' and 'Separate ways' mini-game. 
It kills all enemies with only a few shots and the best thing is that it has
infinite ammo, so you can fire as many as shots as you want. 
It's considered as the top weapon in the entire game and it is very identical to
the TMP due to its firing stats.

Ammo type: N/A

7. Handcannon: This is an impressive gun that should kill ganados with only a
single shot. It is very powerful and very useful against
stronger enemies and bosses. It will be available once you achieve a high star
rank in the mini game, Mercenaries.

8. P.R.L. 412: Not particularly helpful, as it only destroys the plaga instead of
the body from enemies.

Ammo type: N/A
Value: N/A

-----------------------------

8.Grenades    

-----------------------------

You cannot purchase or upgrade Grenades from the merchants. The only way to earn a
grenade is to find one yourself. This 
won't be challenging as you will find these types of grenades lurking everywhere.

HAND GRENADE: This is used for clearing out large groups of enemies, it is thrown
to wherever you want to aim at and then a few seconds 
later, it will explode.

INCENDIARY GRENADE: This is exactly Used like a hand Grenade, but it will only
burst enemies into flames. 
 
FLASH GRENADE: Again, this is used exactly the same as the previous grenades, but
this will quickly get enemies blind for a little while.
