Having a higher score is the name of the game in the Mercenary Mode in Resident Evil 4 Remake. Depending on the rank that you get, you will receive various types of rewards. These include weapons, characters, and stages. The highest rank that you can get in the Mercenary Mode is S++ Rank which is fairly tough to get. In this guide, we have shared some tips and tricks that will help you easily get S++ Rank in Resident Evil 4 Remake: Mercenaries Mode.
Resident Evil 4 Remake: Mercenaries Mode S++ Rank Tips
The key to getting a higher rank like S++ Rank in the Mercenary Mode is to get a higher score multiplier. For those who do not know, you need a total of 1,000,000 or higher points in order to get S++ Rank. You cannot just launch the game mode, kill everything, and expect to get a good enough rank from the get-go. However, these 5 tips will show you some tricks that you can use to increase your points:
Learn the Spawns
You cannot realistically expect to get the S++ Rank in your first ever playthrough. It is a good idea to learn about the spawns, etc. before starting the round. In addition to this, you also need to learn about enemy attack patterns, movement behaviors, etc. so that you are able to lure them effectively and kill them all almost at the same time for a good score multiplier.
Fill Up the Combo Meter
You need to pay close attention to your Combo Multiplier if you wish to earn S++ Rank. Whenever you kill an enemy, you will see a 10-second time and your combo count on the screen. You need to kill another enemy before this timer run out to keep the Combo Multiplier going. If you fail to do so, your combo will reset and you will receive some points based on how long the combo lasted.
If the timer reaches zero, the round will end. This is why it is important to add as much time as possible. There are multiple ways of doing so. Some of these include destroying Green Orbs, defeating Elites scoring kills with headshots, defeating enemies with Mayhem, etc.
Have Multiple Weapons
Since ammo can be scarce, we definitely recommend having multiple weapons. Ideally, you should have one weapon for long-range and another weapon for close-range.
Land Your Shots
As mentioned earlier, there are multiple ways to increase the time limit that you have. Some of these include landing headshots, parrying enemies, getting melee kills, etc. Therefore, whenever possible, try to aim for the head. Another important thing that you need to keep in mind is that there is no Aim Assist in Mercenary Mode so you will probably need to practice a lot.
Collect Golden Eggs
As you progress through the stages, you will come across Chickens. Defeating these Chickens will cause them to drop Golden Eggs that you can collect for 50,000 points. However, it is important to note that landing your shots successfully on these Chickens can be fairly tough which is why we recommend using something like shotguns, grenades, etc. to take them out quickly.
