While it’s rather unusual compared to other games, the Resident Evil 4 Remake takes an interesting approach to attachments. Rather than attachments being for a specific weapon, attachments can often be slotted into different weapons as you please. They also take up inventory space, so you’ll have to choose which you take with you wisely. One such attachment costs Spinels, but its value is rather unknown. Here is whether you should get the Laser Sight in the Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Is the Laser Sight Worth it in the Resident Evil 4 Remake?
The Laser Sight is first spotted when speaking with the Merchant and checking his Spinel shop. It can be purchased for 10 Spinel, with the description saying it can be equipped with the SG-09 R, Punisher, and Sentinel Nine. Given that there’s no way to switch between hip-fire and aiming down sights, this makes the existence of the Laser Sight a rather confusing one. It does provide some slight benefits though.
You’ll notice when aiming any of those pistols that your reticle will be slightly larger for a second, before becoming more focused. This is meant to simulate Leon getting his aim down after pulling out his weapon, thus the inaccuracy. With the Laser Sight attached, this second is removed and the weapon is 100% accurate immediately. This isn’t a huge bonus but can help a lot in a pinch.

If we were you, we’d suggest only getting the Laser Sight if you’re considering using one of these handguns until the end of the game. It’s a lot of Spinels for an attachment, especially one that only offers a slight buff. You can thankfully sell it later, but for coins instead of those precious Spinels.
