Carrying on with our theme of Resident Evil 4 Remake tips, here we have a nice little skip guide for you to get stuck into. As you progress into the Castle in the Resident Evil 4 Remake, you’re met with escalating challenges. The adversaries become more formidable, their intelligence sharper, deploying various snares to overwhelm you with enemy hordes. An instance that stands out occurs in the Gallery, where a crafty cultist manipulates a lever while you traverse a bridge, consequently triggering an attack by a horde of lurking enemies below.
Given this event unfolds during a cutscene, you might presume that evasion is futile, but that’s not the reality. As evidenced by clever strategies like instigating the concluding cutscene in the Village section by shooting the bell, Resident Evil 4 Remake bestows upon you greater control than you may initially surmise. Here’s a handy guide on how to entirely sidestep the combat at the Gallery bridge in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Eluding the Gallery Bridge Skirmish in Resident Evil 4 Remake
When you reach the bridge within the Gallery, prior to crossing, you’ll spot the lever which the cultist will use to lower the bridge. Before you make your move, prepare your Bolt Thrower and fire an Attachable Mine onto the wall adjacent to the lever. Once you’ve planted the mine, proceed and the explosive will instantly detonate as the cultist materialises to set the trap. Although regular grenades and flash grenades can be used, they require more precise timing and there’s a risk of missing, so mines are your safest option.
This tactic may not guarantee the cultist’s downfall, so be prepared to quickly dash across and finish him off if he remains. Regardless, you’ll have successfully circumvented one of the more demanding segments in this chapter of the game. Alternatively there’s an even easier method in the video we posted below that 100% guarantees success. This strategy works on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
