“Don’t Shoot the Water” in Resident Evil 4 Remake

Resident Evil 4 veterans rejoice, as the iconic scene from the original game is back, as Del Lago will eat Leon S. Kennedy if he shoots the water in Capcom’s new remake. In order for Leon S. Kennedy to be devoured by the monster, make your way to the dock next to the boat featured in the the Del Lago boss fight, but do not board or refuel it.

From the edge of the dock, fire a couple rounds into the water, it may take a couple seconds, but get ready as…

Del Lago will emerge from the water and dive at the screen, giving players a first-person perspective of being swallowed by the classic Resident Evil boss. Unfortunately, unlike the remastered versions of the game, there is no trophy or achievement to reward gamers for being eaten by Del Lago.
