If you pre-ordered your copy of Resident Evil Village, you’ll have been given the Mr. Raccoon weapon charm as a free DLC bonus. But chances are you’re wondering if it actually does anything other than sitting there and looking pretty? In this guide, we’ll run you through what the Resident Evil Village weapon charm does, and how to remove it if it’s not to your liking.
Does the Mr. Raccoon Weapon Charm Do Anything?
In short, no, the Resident Evil Village weapon charm is just a cosmetic item that hangs from your weapon. It’s worth noting that while some have stated that the charm only hangs from your pistol, we’ve actually found it was automatically equipped to our shotgun.
For those unaware, Mr. Raccoon has featured as a collectible item in previous entries in the series. In Resi 8, Capcom opted not to include it as a collectible and instead created the weapon charm that dangles from your pistol.
Removing Weapon Charms in Resident Evil Village
To remove a weapon charm, go to ‘Options’ from the Main Menu and select the ‘Special’ tab. From here, change the ‘Display Weapon Charms’ setting to ‘Off.’
When you load up the game you’ll no longer see the weapon charm appearing on Ethan’s pistol, allowing you to focus on headshotting those zombies, lycans, and everything else that inhabits the mysterious village distraction-free.
