A complete guide for obtaining all achievements in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Resident Evil 4 Remake 100% Achievement GuideMissable achievements: Yes
Minimum number of playthroughs: 3
Co-op / Online Achievements: 0
Difficulty required for 100%: Yes
Time to 100%: 50 to 100 hoursNote:
This is a completely handwritten guide. Any item / collectable you need can be found by using CTRL + F and entering what you’re looking for in the text box.Except for the story achievements, every other achievement in this game is missable. Some are very difficult to miss but they are all still missable.
Don’t worry about achievement on your first playthrough as multiple runs are needed for the 100%.
I would also recommend playing on assisted difficulty first. Then on NG+ you can get the achievements for not healing, not using the merchant, using only knives and the pistol, and also completing the game in under 8 hours. You can stack all 4 of these achievements in 1 playthrough. It will also be easier to defeat a Garrador using only knives. Beating the game on any difficulty unlocks professional.
Combat / Upgrade Achievements
Clockwork Castellan Achievements
All Collectables in Order of Appearance Part 1
This will list every single collectable you can get in game. The goal is to have this be the only thing you need open for running through the game.
Labels are as follows:
W = Weapon
C = Clockwork Castellans
R = Merchant Request
A = Chapter specific achievement
U = Weapon part (only 1 can be found in game and is not needed for any achievement)
Also, I will not include anything unlocked and purchased from the merchant as to not add needless information. This is for missable items you need to worry about.
I have listed all collectables required for achievements. If you want every single item in the game, I have also included a 2 hour long video guide created by PowerPyx. All 293 collectables can be found there.
