The legendary weapon from the original Resident Evil 4 makes a return in the remake. While it is not as good at destroying hordes of enemies in the remake as compared to the original, it is still a weapon worth investing in.

In order to unlock this weapon, we have summarized the entire roadmap in bullet points for better understanding. 

  • Players only need the end RE4 Remake in “Professional” difficulty with an A rank in order to complete the Leon “A” Kennedy challenge. 
  • Once the challenge is completed, the Chicago Sweeper will become available for purchase in the Extra Content Shop for 1,000 CP.
  • After purchasing it for the Extra Content Shop, the weapon will appear for sale at the Merchant, and players would need to purchase it.
  • The last thing players need to do is to fully upgrade the Chicago Sweeper by either investing 650,000 pesetas or using the exclusive upgrade ticket to unlock the exclusive Chicago Sweeper upgrade.
  • Purchase the upgrade for 10,000 pesetas and enjoy unlimited ammo.

The Handcannon is relatively easier to unlock compared to the Chicago Sweeper as it does not require the player to end in Professional difficulty on a specific rank. Rather, it is available for purchase quite instantaneously after ending on the Professional difficulty once(without any special weapons). Here is the rest of the roadmap summarized in points.

  • Once players have ended the Professional difficulty, then they will first need to purchase the Weapon from the Extra Content Shop for 1,000 CP. 
  • Now you can go and purchase the Handcannon from the Merchant.
  • After purchasing the weapon, players will need to fully upgrade the Handcannon by either spending 540,000 pesetas or using the exclusive upgrade ticket.

Obtaining 540,000 pesetas is honestly not so hard if you take the time to collect the treasures RE4 Remake has to offer, and you can very easily obtain enough pesetas before even reaching the Salazar boss fight.  Also, purchasing its exclusive upgrade is much cheaper than purchasing the Chicago Sweepers exclusive upgrade.

Speaking of which, we will recommend unlocking the infinite ammo for this weapon before taking the plunge and challenging yourself to unlock the Chicago Sweeper. With endless ammo, the Handcannon is bound to make the challenge much easier for you.

Primal Knife

While the Primal knife is not exactly an unlimited ammo weapon, it does follow the principle of providing unlimited benefits, thus earning it a spot on this list. In order to unlock this weapon, players only need to complete the Revolution Wind-Up Challenge, which requires the players to destroy all 16 Clockwork Castellans.

Unlocking this weapon should be your first priority because the knife with unlimited durability will ultimately become your best friend in future playthroughs, especially in the Professional difficulty, because you wouldn’t have to worry about your knife breaking all the time.

However, do keep in mind that you will have to fully upgrade the Knife first in order to make it indestructible.

Rocket Launcher

The Infinite Ammo Rocket Launcher is one of the easiest special weapons to unlock in Resident Evil 4 Remake, solely due to the fact that you are not required to finish any challenge. The Rocket Launcher will be available to purchase from the Merchant for 2 million pesetas after you have ended once and started New Game Plus.

Cat Ears

  • Players will need to end RE4 Remake in Professional Difficulty with an S+ Rank.
