"The Mercenaries ... (RE4)" , posted Wed 28 Sep 20:59post reply

I've Just finished RE4 and unlocked the Mercenaries & Ada sub-games. Well I've some question about those games:

- Is it me or we can't save during Ada's missions?
- Any shop's?
- Is there a sure way to kill the Gatling Ganados?

For the mercenaries I just did a pityfull score of 8050 for my 1st try, so...
- Is there a path to follow or just a good shooting point to find?
- How many point we need to unlock the special characters?

thanks!

Assignment Ada

- Nope, you can't save during Ada's assignment.
- No shops either.
- Try sniping him from afar.

Mercenaries

- Hmm, there are FAQs for these things, and it's been a while since I played seriously, so I can't help, sorry.
- 30k is needed on each stage for unlocking the characters (I think? or was it 40k...) and 60k is needed on each stage if you want to unlock another weapon in the main game.

I've palyed more the mercenaries now (didn't touch Ada yet) And I've made a 30K + point with leon on the 3 1st stage which unlocked Ada, Krauzer and Hunk (YES!!)

I think that in most a them there is a path like to found, when I was used to the village I did a 90K score with Hunk.

BTW: did the weapon we use in mercenaries are upgraded or not?
Is it me or it is a bit harder to target someone with Krauser's bow?
And did the monsters come ramdomly for each character? because with Hunk they give me unfinite chainsaw women in the village..

"Any bonus for no deaths?" , posted Fri 30 Sep 02:03post reply

I'm killing myself to play through without continuing. Is there any point to this? The game keeps track of it, but I can't find what the actual benefit is! It's not in any faqs I've seen...

The point is that Capcom wants you to kill yourself.

BTW, I've restarted a game with the new outfit, and I was thinking that I'll keep my old equipement but no. I just have the ridiculous equipement of the beginning, I even lost my pesetas...How can we make a million then?

Strange, there is for sure a way to start with your old equipment. Maybe you have chosen "new game", instead of loading your endgame saved file.

That's because the unlocked stuff is saved on the system data, while each specific playthrough is saved in its own file.

It is, since his bow is on his side, the angle of the laser pointer is not the same. So it's not the usual thing.

But once you get used to it, you can feel the monstrous power of the bow.

My best is around 150K with KraŘser...

I've played this game so much, but I've never finished it with a no deaths rate (death occur usually during those QTE events or during Ashley's part), I'll try it next week to see if you get anything for no deaths.

cool. I mean I've *had* deaths, I just always restart when I do. If I get there before you do, I'll report here. But since you're probably all powered up, I bet you could do it faster!

There's no no-death bonus. At least I didn't get anything for beating it with no continues (on standard difficulty with alternate costume).

arrghhh... same here. But maybe that's a good thing - I am so freakin sick of reloading after dying a cheesy Ashley induced death.

Is there a penalty for using first aid sprays?? I've only previously played RE2 but I recall someone saying using first aid sprays lowered your rank in the earlier games.

There is no ranking at all in the main game. You get stats at the end, but no letter ranking. Therefore, all the old "no-nos" from previous RE games no longer apply; take your time, die all you want, and use all the First Aid Sprays you need, it doesn't matter.

In fact, the game adjusts the difficulty a bit depending on whether or not you die (sometimes, it'll remove some especially troublesome enemies if you continue a lot at a certain spot).

That's it, I'm used to the bow now... And I've unlocked everyone in the mercenaries. Still I'm far from the "handcanon" since my score are still low.

Leon = finished Vilage, castle, Mine with
30 < 35K just 4 star...
Ada= Vilage, 35K so lame...She's so week, and they send me so much chainsaw women...
Krauzer= Village, Water plant, 35K thank to his arm the water plant can be finished. those double chainsaw bastard are so lame un stupid...
Hunk= vilage, 90K (Ha!ha!)
Wesker = Castle 25K.

My problem is not the score himself but how to stay alive until the chopper comes...
Those one-kill-hiy enemy are a bit abused in a mode like the mercenaries...

ahh, no wonder I found some parts of the game more difficult than others did...I have no deaths at all!

I'm about to beat the game though, I think. maybe tonight. I'll let you all know what happens (if anything) when you beat the game the first time through with no deaths.

The bonus for not dying is that you get to live! Isn't that enough of a reward?

Man, every time these RE4 threads pop up, it makes me want to play Mercenaries again. I've only got one stage that I haven't managed to break 100,000 yet- that combat zone with the chaingunners. I've only gotten 90,000 on that one.

Heh heh. Yes! I'm still a LITTLE iffy about it being good or not, but I saw some video of the game and it looks like it'll be fun. I think I'm mostly interested in biting people and making my own team of zombies.
