Resident Evil Village - Weapon Overview
Pick Best Weapons Against Enemies
Each enemy type has a weapon they are susceptible to, such as handgun for finishing off weakened enemies, or the bolt-action rifle for precise sniping against targets under cover or far away.
Weapon Upgrades Available?
It seems that weapons can be upgraded in the Duke's Emporium by spending Lei. Upgrade includes better damage, better rate of fire, reload speed and ammo capacity.
Aim For Body Parts & Weaknesses
Targeting certain body parts of enemies will give you an advantage, such as more damage from headshots. When fighting bosses, there may be certain phases where it will expose its weak parts, which can be targeted for damage.
Target Environmental Items For Damage & Debuffs
Environmental items such as barrels, Flour bags will detonate/ activate when shot, causing area-wide damage or smoke cover. Be on the alert for them as they may save you a lot of ammo against otherwise tough enemies.
Unlock Special Weapons From Mercenaries Mode
