RE4 Remake Duo Garrador Boss Fights [How To Defeat]

Craft some flash grenades and repair your knife prior to the Garrador Bossfight in RE4 Remake.

RE4 Remakes some bold changes to the original boss fights, and one such encounter is the Garrador and Dual Garrador boss fight. The encounters are much scarier and tenser than in the original, and the addition of stealth adds a whole new layer of depth to these fights.

Key Takeaways
  • There are two RE4 Remake Garrador boss fights, encountered in Chapter 7 and Chapter 10.
  • The recommended weapons for these encounters are a Sniper Rifle and a flash grenade.
  • The first Garrador Bossfight takes place in a torture cell, with hanging chains that produce sound upon interaction.
  • Here are important steps you should take to defeat the Garrador bosses:
    1. For the first encounter, players are encouraged to use stealth and stay behind the Garrador to deal damage.
    2. Sniping the Garrador from behind will make its parasite vulnerable, which can be instantly obliterated with a flash grenade, killing Garrador in the process too.
    3. In the second encounter, players will face off against two Garradors and a horde of Zealots simultaneously.
    4. The easiest strategy to take out two Garradors is to shoot the bell in the right corner of the room and snipe both Garradors from behind when they are in the right position.
    5. After their parasites are vulnerable, throw a flash grenade to take them out instantly.
  • The reward for the first and second Garrador boss fights is Red Beryl and Unicorn Horn, respectively, in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Important: Ensure you have a sniper rifle and a flash grenade in your inventory before the fight, as they are the key to quickly taking down the Garradors.

Garrador Bossfight in Chapter 7

After surviving the castle’s catapults and Salazar’s warm welcome, your next task will be to find your way around the locked gate at the castle’s entrance. And that way leads you to an underground torture cell where you meet the Garrador. This will be the first time Leon’s stealth skills will be put to the test, as the Garrador can’t see but instead has a high hearing capability.

The dungeon, where the fight takes place, will have many hanging chains that can produce sound upon interaction and will alert the Garrador of your position. However, that chiming of chains can be used against him as well.

Attack Patterns

How To Defeat

  • If you have a sniper rifle (Stingray is preferred) and a flash grenade, the fight will be over in seconds.
  • After Garrador rushes and enters the dungeon cell with the hanging chains, carefully position yourself around his back while being cautious of the chains and shoot at his parasite.
  • After two shots, the parasite in his body will come out. This is your cue to throw the flash grenade. 
  • After the bang from the flash grenade, you will find the Garrador dead in his place.
  • In case you don’t have a sniper rifle, or a flash grenade, the strategy to beat him will remain the same. Position yourself behind him, shoot at his parasite, run from your place, and then repeat.

  • You can also unlock the “Never Heard it Coming” achievement if you beat the Garrador using only knives.
  • This can be done by approaching his back and stabbing his parasite numerous times until he dies.
  • Alternatively, you can also skip this entire fight using the Garrador Door Skip in Chapter 7.

After taking down the Garrador, you can pick up a Red Beryl from the Garrador’s body, which can be sold to the merchant, either individually or combined with any crown for a high price.

Double Garrador Bossfight In Chapter 10

After surviving a huge horde of Novistadors in Chapter 10, you will enter a room swarming with Zealots and two Garradors, one of which is armored and locked behind chains. As soon as you begin your shooting, the Garradors will be altered of your presence and will break their chains to attack. While their overall attack pattern is the same, the boss fight itself is much harder than the previous one due to additional enemies and Garrador in RE4 Remake.

How To Defeat

  • The equipment required for this fight is the same; a sniper rifle and a flash grenade.
  • After entering the arena, take a left to the hallway, and shoot down any zealots in your path.

  • At the end of the brief hallway, at the far right, you will see a bell you can shoot to alert the Garradors.
  • The Garradors themselves take a while before they break their chains, so you have to be quick with the above-mentioned steps.
  • After hearing the ringing of the bell, both Garradors will charge toward the bell and will destroy it in the process.

  • This will put them in a position where you can easily snipe their backs.
  • Shoot the parasites in their back, and after the parasites are vulnerable, throw your flash grenade.
  • This will kill both of the Garradors in less than a minute, leaving you with only zealots that you can take out with your normal weaponry.
  • Even if you mess up a bit, this strategy will ensure at least one of the two Garradors will die.

  • However, failing to do this will prolong this fight into a long game of hide and seek, where you have to kill the Zealots while being cautious of the Garradors, which can make this encounter extremely tough.
