The Chicago Typewriter from the original Resident Evil 4 makes a return in the remake by the name of Chicago Sweeper. This legendary weapon was used to be a fan favorite in the original title and the ideal weapon to have during speedruns; thus, if you wish to recapture the joy of using this rifle in the remake as well, then one must know how to obtain the Chicago Sweeper.
How To Unlock The Chicago SweeperIn order to unlock the Chicago Sweeper, players only need to complete the challenge “Leon “A” Kennedy.” Which requires the players to complete Resident Evil 4 Remake on Professional difficulty (not hardcore) with an A rank. Not an easy task, we know, but legendary weapons require you to be worthy enough to wield them.
Once you have finished the challenge, the Chicago Sweeper will automatically appear in Extra Content Shop. Players will need to purchase it for 1,000 CP, and the weapon will be added to their Storage Box.
- Power: 0.40
- Ammo Capacity: 50
- Reload Speed: 0.78
- Rate of Fire: 2.50
- Precision: 3.00
How To Unlock The Infinite Ammo Perk
- Complete the “Leon A Kenney” Challenge and purchase the weapon from Extra Shop.
- Players will need to fully upgrade the Chicago Sweeper (which will cost 650,000 pesetas).
- Then they can purchase the exclusive perk from the Merchant for 10,000 pesetas, and voila, they have successfully unlocked the infinite ammo perk.
Players also have the option to skip this entire grind by going to the Merchant and trading 30 spinels for the Exclusive Upgrade Ticket, then going into the Tune-Up section to purchase the exclusive infinite ammo perk of the Chicago Sweeper from the Merchant.

My Opinion On The Chicago Sweeper
As a player who has spent countless hours playing Resident Evil 4 on his Xbox 360 and spent more than a few weeks fully experiencing the remake on my Future_Bird profile, the Chicago Sweeper used to be my favorite special weapon in the original, and while it is available in the remake as well, it doesn’t quite shine as well as it used to.
Allow me to elaborate: unlike in the original, once you unlock the Chicago Sweeper in the remake, you will still have to make a heavy investment of PTAS before you can unlock the infinite ammo perk. Plus, its damage also feels a bit nerfed, but even then, this legendary weapon is worth the grind and is easily one of my favorite weapons in the Resident Evil 4 Remake simply because I find it too fun to use.
And that neatly wraps up our guide on how to obtain the Chicago Sweeper in Resident Evil 4 Remake. Since some parts of this article were about reminiscing on the past and remembering just how great the original Chicago Typewriter was, you may also want our Resident Evil 4 Remake vs Original guide.
