When the original Resident Evil 4 came out, it caught the attention of many who used them pesetas as currency in-game to purchase items from the peddler. An inaccuracy, since the pesetas ceased to be legal tender shortly after the euro was introduced in the European Economic Community (now the European Union), and especially if we take into account that the game is set in the fall of 2004.
Historical details aside, the last minted Spanish coin is the one we’re going to need make transactions and get various items – such as healing sprays, weapons, their upgrades, etc. – in the game. While it’s not hard to get some, the quantities we need are not small, which is why we present this guide of tips for raise you capital in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
How to collect money in Resident Evil 4 Remake
The pesetas are a kind of licorice or booty we can meet in different ways in the game. If we eliminate cattle or any other type of enemy, it is possible that we will get as a “reward”. a few of them (generally between 300 and 800). They never hurt, but considering we have to spend ammunition to get these amounts of money, they don’t work out too well.
Alternatively, we can get more pesetas and in larger quantities by searching the cupboards, drawers, lockers, barrels or boxes marked with yellow paint that we can destroy to grab what’s inside. However, the prizes that the peddler offers us for new weapons, resources or improvements to the arsenal are not enough if we limit ourselves to taking the game’s pennies.
However, in Resident Evil 4 Remake – just like the original – there are a series of treasures of great value: from jewelery in various sizes and shapes with prices ranging from 2,000 to 3,000 pesetas, to decorative beads, museum pieces that tripling on many occasions the value of the most valuable gem in our possession. Then the best strategy to earn “some bitches” is to hunt for those treasures.
In that case, one of the first investments to do with the spinels we have is to turn them into the peddler for the treasure map of the area we are in. This way we will know where are all the valuables that our “Phoenician” ally wants us to sell.
The problem is that some of those chests or drawers of treasure will be closed and we will need them old keys to get our hands on them (which we can randomly find in different locations), or some kinds special keys which are obtained in different parts of the game. If we have these keys, we can get those treasures, and are usually the most valuableAlthough there are more ways to increase the value of what we already have.
Also useful that you pay attention some oil lamps which you can see hanging from some structures through the game’s different mappings. If we shoot them, they will break when they fall to the ground always contain some kind of treasure; It can be a trinket (such as a necklace or a bracelet) or a jewel of variable color and rarity. Which, by the way, are an important element in increasing our turnover.
Get extra gems and increase the value of what we sell
Although among those closed chests there can be interesting treasures on many occasions they will come “bareback”.. That is, we will see that they have room to put some gems in to increase their value and thus get more money by combining those pieces than if we sold them separately. Gemstones are also a rare item, but there is more than indicated on the map.
The stronger enemies from the area we are in (for example, Dr. Salvador, who wields the chainsaw in the first part of the game, or the cattle decorated with animal heads) guarantee a random gem or even a spinel as a drop if we take them out. It will certainly involve the use of a lot of ammunition, and the gem may not be the most valuable, but it pays off when we consider that with the money we get for these items we get amounts that allow us buy more powerful weapons or improve the damage of the one we already have. The advantage is that we don’t have to kill them as soon as we encounter them; we can move forward a bit and come back later when we have more ammunition.
As for the combination of gems in jewelry pieces or other trinkets, it’s not about putting them on like crazy. The value of items with gems in quiver will be higher or lower depending on the number of gems in chute, and the color scheme (The simplest piece allows two gems to be embedded). If you want to know the value of these combinations, the game offers us a useful table:
It is recommended that you try to combine them so that the object sells for the highest possible value, but do not go to the other extreme and collect treasures without selling them, waiting for the jewel you are missing; especially if, for example, you don’t have much life and need money to buy survival spray or upgrade a weapon before an important battle.
Pawn weapons and sell what you don’t need
Likewise it is possible selling keys or objects that you have needed to progress, but that are of no use from now on (such as the keys to those special treasures when you move to another area) or normal keys that are needed to access certain parts of the game. Although they are not worth much, they help to swell our capital. Likewise, if you are not satisfied with a weapon you have obtained, or you need some extra money, you can sell it. The resale value of the weapon take into account the improvements that you did to it, so improving one that doesn’t convince you later won’t waste money (at least not much).
You are always on time buy it back to the peddler, and for a price that will be less than the money you made selling it if you upgraded it, though he will return them to you without upgrades. It’s a tactic to get used to manage inventory or redistribute upgrades to other weapons. You can also sell loose resources (gunpowder, bags, medicine bullets…), but you should your last resortbecause if you need them later you can’t buy them back (you lost money too) and it’s always easier to make room in your inventory than to lose them.
As a final tip, before going to the end of a chapter, view the locations through which you went to collect treasures you left behind. By the time you get to the next part of the game you can’t go back to the previous one, and treasure that you did not gather, treasure that will be lost. The other advice I give you is to get your hands on one the amulets with which the shooting gallery rewards you: among them there is one that lower the price of improvements of the peddler, and it’s a cumbersome way to save money and have more at your disposal.
With these tips for always have a chip in the pockets, you may want to consult what weapons can and is it recommended to buy or improve themor how *ccomplete some of the peddler’s requests in which you can get spinels that you can exchange for weapon accessories or the aforementioned treasure map.
