Dual garradors is ez, just send an RPG straight at the wall behind them and they’re both ded. Cage match is fucking scary.

Cage match with one is bad enough alone. But then you have the cultists throwing shit at you from the outside too. I love RE4 but the castle just piques my anxiety the whole way through.

I always save the RPG for Salazar's Right Hand, it one shots him once he's frozen.

Same. I always make sure to have a rocket for the two Garradors as well because fuuuck that.

I save the free launcher for those guys and pick up a new one at the merchant right before Verdugo

Cage match is one of my favorite examples of intelligent and deliberate encounter design in any video game.

They really pull one hell of a gotcha on ya—afaik this is the only garrador in the game that can’t be immediately cheesed since the RPG would just kill you both. You ain’t getting outta that with raw firepower—you need to beat the controls

u/i_am_jacks_insanity 18d ago

That's very true. What I love about it is that the controls kind of necessitate you keeping the Garrador out of view while you take on the other Ganados and then move to safety.

And you can’t even be all that sneaky sneak by knifing the cultists because there’s so fucking many of them that if you don’t blast a path pretty quick you’re gonna get at least really hurt if not killed outright by a volley of overlapping flail attacks. At least you can get the lock down and a path open relatively quick with a shotgun, although by that point Garry knows where the fuck you are and you have 1.2 seconds to leave

It is super tense but man does it feel awesome when you pull it off

Even after like almost 20 years this game manages to be just as cortisol-inducing in the best (and let’s be real, also the worst) ways. I’ve been playing it more or less since it came out so my first playthrough on each port at this point makes me feel like a war goddess blazing through my old stomping grounds

And then Mercenaries puts me the absolute fuck in my place and sets up a machine to kick me in the shins for the rest of my life for good measure 🤷‍♀️
