RE4 Remake Disgrace Of Salazar Family Request

The Disgrace Of The Salazar Family is another one of the merchant's requests in RE4 Remake, and it can be completed in Chapter 12.

The RE4 Remake Disgrace Of The Salazar Family is one of the two merchant requests that you come across in Chapter 12, the other one being Jewel Thief. You need to complete this request before going for Ashley at the Clocktower, as you won’t be able to return to the castle again.

Key Takeaways

  • You need to complete this request without progressing with the main story; otherwise, the game locks you out of the area where you need to go.

As soon as Chapter 11 after your first encounter with Krauser, Leon will take an elevator to reach the ballroom of the castle area again. 

  • At the start of Chapter 12, outside the shop of the merchant in the ballroom, you will find two merchant requests.
  • One of these requests is the Disgrace Of The Salazar Family, in which the merchant wants you to deface the portrait of Ramon Salazar somehow.
  • The portrait is located in the Throne Room, and you’ll have to backtrack to this location instead of proceeding forward with the main story.
  • At that point, if you accidentally proceed with the main story, you won’t be able to complete the Disgrace Of The Salazar Family request again.

Getting To The Throne Room

The throne room is actually quite near the ballroom, and you have to go through the ballroom itself in addition to another hallway in order to reach the room. 

  • The hallway that you go through contains zealots controlled by parasites, and you shouldn’t waste any ammo fighting them.
  • Just run towards the throne room, open the door, and go inside, as the enemies won’t follow you inside the room.
  • Once inside the throne room, go to the location shown in the image above, and you’ll come across Salazar’s Portrait, which you have to deface.
  • In order to deface the portrait, we’ll need an egg.

Throwing An Egg At The Portrait

If you don’t have an egg on you, then RE4 Remake has you covered. There are chickens present in the throne room that will drop an egg after you wait for some time. Additionally, there is a cubic device puzzle that gives you a golden egg if you solve it.

  • Once you obtain the egg, throw it at the portrait of Ramon Salazar, and the Disgrace Of The Salazar Family request will be complete.
