How to get money fast in Resident Evil 4 remake

In Resident Evil 4 remake, you can get money in two different ways. The first one is to simply kill enemies and pick up loot that drops from them.

Collect more treasures

Treasures are the most valuable items in this game. You can sell them to the merchant for a lot of money. However, this doesn’t mean that you’ll have to search for the closest merchant immediately after you get a new treasure. Since they don't take up any inventory slots, you can hoard them until you next run into the merchant before a new chapter.

Upgrade your treasures with gems

Gems are small items you can find everywhere across the game’s world. They have different colours and you can put them in special sockets that some larger treasures have. This way you will make them more valuable, selling them for more. Here is the list of all gem combinations and their price modifiers:

  • Two gems of different coluors – x1.1 Modifier
  • Two gems of the same colour – x1.2 Modifier
  • Three gems of different colours – x1.3 Modifier
  • Three gems of the same colour – x1.4 Modifier
  • Four gems of two different colours (double duo) – x1.5 Modifier
  • Four gems of different colours – x1.6 Modifier
  • Four gems of the same colour – x1.7 Modifier
  • Five gems of two different colours (duo and trio) – x1.8 Modifier
  • Five gems of the same colour – x1.9 Modifier
  • Five games of different colours – x2.0 Modifier

Of course, you can also sell gems individually without plugging them into other treasures, though you may get less money if you choose this option.

Buy treasure maps

Treasure Maps are the special items you can purchase from the merchant with your Spinels. This premium currency can be earned by shooting blue medallions and completing other side missions. There are three maps in total, and each of them shows you all treasures in one of the three major areas. These are the village, the castle, and the military base.

How to save money in Resident Evil 4 remake


In order to have enough money, you need not only to sell treasures, but also not to waste your coins on useless stuff. First of all, we would recommend you have only one weapon of each type. For example, it’s a bad idea to have two shotguns as they serve the same purpose and use the same ammo. Instead, we suggest that you carry four or five weapons of different types and sell the rest. This won't just help your wallet, but your inventory space as well.

Also, we recommend that you avoid wasting your money on healing items, ammo, or gunpowder. You should be able to get enough of these items from your enemies and they are not worth your investments. Purchase them only if you are in dire need.
