Resident Evil 4 remake cabin fight tips and tricks

Before you get into the cabin, you should fill up your inventory. All the loot you will find in the cabin can be collected as you fight, so you benefit from having as much firepower as possible. Pistol shots should be used to clear enemies from afar, or get headshots or leg shots to use your melee attacks. This grants you temporary invulnerability and is particularly effective on groups of attackers, as those around will also be hit by a melee.

There are a handful of bookshelves around the cabin that can be pushed into windows to halt the enemies' progress temporarily, as well as wooden boards to patch up windows. As well as this, you can go up to the top floor and push down ladders.

Generally, you want to use the table downstairs to run enemies around, where you can then go up the stairs and fire your shotgun at them from a distance. This can then be added to melee moves and grenades to hit entire groups of enemies.

There are plenty of grenades, healing items, and bullets around, so you shouldn't need to worry too much about these. You could opt to wait until enemies are inside in order to get the loot, but you will have so much by the end of this encounter that you don't really need to.


Even better, Luis will sporadically pass over another magazine of pistol ammo, so if you do manage to run out of weaponry, you'll be fine. Be persistent and you should be able to take them down.
