Resident Evil 4 Remake Broken Butterfly

In Resident Evil 4 Remake, finding the correct set of weapons for your style is just as important as completing each of the puzzles laid out throughout the adventure. Having the best weapons for the job is deeply valuable since it will make the swarms of enemies you often face a lot less challenging. One weapon that initially appears in the Merchant’s shop during Chapter 7 is an interesting debate, though we are here to help. Here is whether the Broken Butterfly is worth buying in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

Should You Buy the Broken Butterfly in Resident Evil 4 Remake?

The Broken Butterfly is the first magnum weapon that you can acquire in Resident Evil 4 Remake, available for 42,000 coins after reaching Chapter 7 (unless at a discount). It is a beautiful-looking magnum too, sporting a classic look that is likely to appeal to a lot of people. Not to mention it follows the series’ tradition of thinking the magnum is the greatest weapon in the universe.

As far as purchasing the Broken Butterfly, this is going to heavily depend on how you prefer heavy-hitting weapons like the Broken Butterfly to function. Later on, in Chapter 13, you will get access to another magnum that has a slower fire rate but hits even harder. If you prefer that sort of thing, you should hold off on your spending. Otherwise, the Broken Butterfly is great for those who want to throw off less powerful shots much faster.
