Faithful to the 2005 original, the Resident Evil 4 remake does feature some pretty tough bosses that Leon Kennedy has to deal with, and some glitch footage captured accurately shows Verdugo’s health. With Dambuster’s Dead Island 2 on the way, and currently receiving some pretty good reviews from critics, the horror genre continues to grow in 2023, whether it’s due to long-awaited new releases or reimaginings of classic games.
Of course, Capcom’s RE brand has been around for decades, helping influence the early days of survival horror and cementing its place in gaming history. One of the things that makes the series so popular is its roster of mutant opponents that present a variety of challenges. In fact, the remake of Resident Evil 4 has some tricky bosses that players must defeat. While they all have their difficulties, most players will be able to find a way to beat them, but a video shows at least one of them with some health issues.

In a recent thread on Reddit, user Lucienwmoon uploaded footage of their Resident Evil 4 playthrough, which shows them fighting Verdugo, the reptilian-like boss that appeared in Chapter 10. However, there was a glitch where the enemy somehow became stuck in the stun lock, preventing it from moving once Leon started shooting. What’s interesting about this clip is that it shows how long it takes to take down the boss, as the player, using a Tommy Gun-inspired Chicago gun and infinite ammo, begins unloading the Verdugo’s rear. It took a full minute of non-stop shooting before the beast was finally brought down, with players clearly jumping at the opportunity to exploit the loophole.
For those who haven’t played the remake, it’s possible to get guns with infinite ammo in Resident Evil 4, although the infinite-ammo Chicago gun that Lucienwmoon uses in the clip is earned after the player completes the game and earns an A rank professional difficulty. It also shows that, if that’s what it takes to take down a Verdugo with infinite ammo, it’s much more challenging with regular weapons.
As mentioned above, 2023 has been a great year for horror fans so far, with offerings from both AAA and more indie studios. The Resident Evil 4 remake is just one way for the genre to keep alive, and fans have a lot more to look forward to from this year alone.
Resident Evil 4 Remake is available on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
