Resident Evil 4 Remake prides itself on providing you with more than enough of each type of weapon to fully customize your loadout. While some weapons are better than others, there are usually a few weapons in each category that can serve your needs. In the case of handguns, your choices are vast with one weapon raising a lot of questions. Here’s whether the Blacktail handgun is good in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Is the Blacktail Worth Buying in Resident Evil 4 Remake?
The Blacktail is one of the last handguns that you can acquire during a playthrough of Resident Evil 4 Remake. It can be acquired from the Merchant’s wares for 24,000 pesetas, after reaching Chapter 7. It’s a small handgun that doesn’t have too much stopping power, instead priding itself on its fire rate while still maintaining some decent damage. It also can’t get attachments, so besides some minor stat boosts, you can’t drastically change the Blacktail.
With that in mind, your choice of handgun should rely solely on how much money you want to invest into your weapons. If you were to pull out something like the Red9, you would need to invest a lot of money into upgrades for it before you see it pay off. That payoff is quite strong though, and is likely stronger than the Blacktail. With the latter handgun, you’d be paying far less to get it to where it needs to be, though it would have some weaknesses by comparison.

If you want a definitive answer, we suggest going with the Red9 handgun. It’ll be more expensive, but that weapon is all sorts of power. It also looks great, being the only old-school handgun in the game. Just make sure to get that stock, which you can learn more about in our guide.
