Reading tip: Resident Evil 8 Village walkthrough with tips

A total of 9 weapons can be found in the levels of Resident Evil 8 Village (buy now 64,99 € ) hidden. The Duke will sell you two of them as soon as you reach the Heisenbergs factory. In addition to the V61 custom pistol (fully automatic), this is also the SYG-12 shotgun. You will need a lot of lei to buy both ratchets. In addition, after playing through for the first time, you will receive the bonus shop, in which you can unlock weapons for AP – which you also receive achievements and trophies. You then buy this from the Duke for playing through the game.

Many of the modifications for these weapons, however, can only be bought in Resident Evil Village’s NG +. We list all pistols, shotguns or assault rifles in the following overview and reveal where you can get the mods for them. With the Duke you can also level up the damage, rate of fire, reload speed and magazine size of the weapons. We recommend clear magazine size and damage first. With shotguns and the sniper rifle, you also pay attention to the reload speed and rate of fire.
