Capcom’s Resident Evil 4 Remake features an assortment of pistols for players to choose from for quick fire against hordes of infected Ganado. Pistols are some of the more basic but essential weapons in Resident Evil 4 Remake, often proving invaluable in a pinch against a range of enemies, especially when pistol ammo is generally more readily available.
The Sentinel 9 is one of Resident Evil 4 Remake’s exclusive purchasable weapons, but players can also purchase a full set of weapons from merchants using in-game currency. With so many options, it can sometimes be hard to decide which weapons to invest in. Luckily, there’s some handy information to help you choose whether a Sentinel 9 is worth buying.
How to Get the Sentinel 9 Pistol
Unfortunately, players cannot buy Sentinel 9 from the merchant as it is exclusive to the DLC. To obtain Sentinel 9, there are several options. Players must own Resident Evil Remake Deluxe or Collector’s edition to view and use Sentinel 9 pistols in Typewriter storage, such as the Skull Shaker shotgun from Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Alternatively, those who own the Standard Edition of Resident Evil 4 Remake can purchase the Sentinel 9 pistol as an additional separate DLC in the Xbox Store for $1.99, allowing those who want to own all the pistols to update Leon’s case as they see fit Collection. Players can also purchase the full DLC bundle separately, including the exclusive Sentinel 9 and Skull Shaker weapons, as well as other bonus content such as various costumes and treasure map expansion packs. Like other weapons in the game, players can also equip the Sentinel 9 with the Resident Evil 4 Remake laser sight for precise targeting.
Is Sentinel 9 worth it?
The main advantage of the Sentinel 9 over other pistols such as Leon’s starting weapon, the SG-09 R, is its higher ammo capacity of 19 rounds, so for players who like pistols with a lot of ammo That said, it can be a good choice. The Sentinel 9 is also slightly more powerful when compared side-by-side with the SG-09 R Tier 1 base stats, but has a slightly lower rate of fire. However, both have 4.0 accuracy and can be option-upgraded to boost stats like power and ammo capacity, so among other things, whether the Sentinel 9 is worth it depends more on player preference. Excluding the perks of Merchant Upgrade Tickets, Sentinel 9’s max level upgrade stat is :
Power – 1.90 Ammo Capacity – 31 Reload Speed – 1.30 Fire Rate – 2.0 Maximum upgrade stats for the SG-09 R include slightly higher power and reload speed, but lower ammo capacity :
Power – 2.00 Ammo Capacity – 18 Reload Speed – 1.40 Fire Rate – 1.52 Of course, there are usually many better Resident Evil 4 Remake weapons, such as pistols like the Red 9, which is one of the best guns available from merchants . Therefore, players may wish to compare merchant pistol stats based on their needs before considering additional Sentinel 9 purchases.
