Resident Evil 4 Remake: How to Defeat Verdugo (Wave Goodbye, Right Hand Trophy/Achievement)

Capcom’s latest Resident Evil 4 remake has all the DNA of the series, plus a host of enhancements to make this good game even better. Mystery and obscurity aside, perhaps a key calling card of the series is its creature design, and in this latest entry, Verdugo certainly makes an impression in the murky sewers.

While the creature can be avoided, those wishing to keep Leon out of its clutches will need to use the environment to their advantage against Verdugo. This guide will contain all the basic information on how to defeat Verdugo in Resident Evil 4 and make the Wave Goodbye, Right Hand trophy and achievements more accessible.

How to beat Verdugo in Resident Evil 4 Remake

The encounter with Verdugo will take place in Chapter 10. Once you reach the subterranean lab, the elevators needed to continue going will be out of power. The only way to get it working again is to turn on the power; this takes Leon down the drain. Along the way, sounds from the vents herald the arrival of the boss.

Its fast speed and quick attacks make it nearly impossible to parry its attacks or deal any significant damage to it, and that’s where the environment comes into play. The side panels located around the tunnel can trigger the frozen nitrogen to stop the Verdugo from traveling.

This means that shotguns, grenades, and even bazookas are recommended when unavailable. Unfortunately, it can take several freeze cycles to defeat Verdugo, and each panel can only freeze the boss once.

While it may look safe, the Verdugo will attack from the upper vent, so press enter to duck when the button prompt pops up.
