Along with obscure puzzles, bizarre locales, and infinite strains of viruses, Resident Evil is best known for its bizarre and unique boss designs. In no other game series will you find a giant metal monster, tall vampire woman, and fish man as bosses in the same entry, and Resident Evil 4 Remake is no different with its unique designs. One boss, in particular, has given people some trouble, though it is much easier once you know what you are doing. Here is how to defeat the Verdugo boss in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
How to Defeat the Sewer Boss in Resident Evil 4 Remake
The Verdugo boss is first encountered when reaching the sewer section of the labs, very late in the game. As you are traversing through and attempting to complete the puzzle, you will hear scurrying within the vents. After interacting with a particular lever to activate some power, Verdugo will begin to stalk you with its extremely fast movement and quick attacks. This makes it a very hard boss, especially since it seems to run away before you can do any damage to it.
You may have suspected as much at this point, but Verdugo is an unkillable boss. Rather than dumping all your ammo into it in hopes of it dropping dead, your goal is to use your surroundings to survive. Scattered throughout the sewers are liquid nitrogen dispensers which can be triggered with a nearby button. If you can time this right, you will freeze Verdugo and will have time to move around.
Your end goal for this section is to activate levers and wait for an elevator to come down to you. Using these liquid nitrogen dispensers is key, though ammo can be useful as well. Throwing enough shots into its face can allow you to do a roundhouse kick to the beast, with enough damage causing it to flee for a short time. It will be stressful, but with the right tactics, you can buy yourself enough time for the elevator to arrive. Once it is done, you will not have to worry about Verdugo for the rest of the game.
