One Resident Evil 4 remake streamer discovers a surprisingly easy way to kill one of the game's bosses, Salazar. With the game's recent release, many players have come to talk about the Resident Evil 4 remake's difficulty. With its two latter difficulties, Hardcore and Professional, providing a lot of challenge for even veteran Resident Evil 4 players, it's not hard to believe they are looking for ways to make the game an easier experience on harder difficulties, even if it's just to unlock some of those amazing bonuses for later playthroughs, like the Cat Ears that provide infinite ammo. The bosses are an obstacle to this, forcing players to fight for their life.
One of the game's bosses is the lord of the castle area, Ramon Salazar. While Salazar looks like Margaret Thatcher and is of diminutive stature, when it comes to his boss fight, he is not as weak as his previous form makes people think he is. His boss fight involves him turning into a monster with tentacles that allow him to smoothly move throughout the arena, with acid spray attacks that can come at a moment's notice and a one-hit kill attack. His boss fight is one to be careful with, as it's easy to die to him.
However, there is a way to make the fight not only easier but beatable in just two hits. Posting to Twitter, streamer Larxa, well known for beating Elden Ring with her voice, uploaded a stream clip of her fighting Salazar in Resident Evil 4 remake. In the video, Larxa pulls out a Golden Chicken Egg and throws it at him, her face turning to surprise as it knocks him down into a vulnerable state to stab. Utilizing this advantage, she throws a second, and it kills Salazar instantly, sending her to his death cutscene.
While there aren't many ways to get Golden Chicken Eggs during a single Resident Evil 4 remake playthrough, there are a couple of places they are guaranteed to be. One is the piece of land dedicated to chickens in the lake area when the player can utilize the boat, and one of them is obtainable in a Squared Locked Box while doing The Disgrace of Salazar Family Merchant Request.
Resident Evil 4 remake is no stranger to providing ways for players to get through certain segments easier, from the Wrecking Ball grenade skip to the famous Village fight skip by shooting the church bell. The game is still recently released, so there could potentially be more ways to skip through some of the game's hardest parts waiting to be discovered.
The Resident Evil 4 remake is now available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
