Resident Evil 4 Remake Verdugo Boss Guide

Once players interact with the circuit breaker lever in Chapter 10, they’ll initiate the Verdugo boss fight, showcasing a creature with incredibly thick skin. You can defeat this opponent by using the liquid nitrogen locations to temporarily paralyze it and repeatedly shoot it (you’ll need to do this process a few times.) Those who want to utilize a faster method can freeze it with the liquid nitrogen in front of the circuit breaker and unleash the power of the rocket launcher to get an instant kill.

However, this route doesn’t feature any rewards or achievements, but at least you’ll live to fight another day.
