[edit] Others

These are the more exotic weapons in Resident Evil 4; most of them are more powerful than the typical gun, and none of them are conventional firearms.

[edit] Knife

Leon has this knife with him at all times,you can't sell or upgrade it.It doesn't need ammo and it doesn't take up space in your inventory.

[edit] Mine Thrower

"Not only will you need cash but you'll need guts to buy that weapon."~The Merchant

This gun will cost you 9,800 pesetas, and a scope can be attached for 8,000 pesetas. The firepower stat of the Mine Thrower actually refers to its explosive blast radius.

The basic mode of fire for the P.R.L. 412 is a short-ranged pulse of light, which damages and stuns enemies, much like a flash grenade. When charged up, the P.R.L. 412 fires a penetrating laser bolt that pierces and kills most enemies in one shot. It can also take down groups as in the Wii version, it has a recoil force, so you basically don't have to aim, though that decreases your overall accuracy.

The P.R.L. 412 has no listed stats and cannot be upgraded.

[edit] Rocket Launcher

This is one of the most powerful weapons that you can use.It can kill most bosses in one shot,it also has a built-in scope.But this will cost you 30,000 pesetas. One can be found in the castle in a glass container. It takes up 16 spaces (8x2) of Leon's inventory.

[edit] Special Rocket Launcher

In the last battle,Ada gives this to you so you can kill Saddler.It takes up 16 spaces (8x2) of Leon's inventory.

Like the standard Rocket Launcher, this special Rocket Launcher can only be fired once before having to be discarded. If the player defeats the final boss without using the Special Rocket Launcher, it can be sold to the Merchant for 30,000 pesetas.

The only difference is that the rocket is red,while the normal rocket is white.

[edit] Infinite Launcher

This is pretty much a normal rocket launcher,excpet it has infinite ammo!But a bad thing is that it will cost you a whopping 1,000,000 pesetas. It takes up 16 spaces (8x2) of Leon's inventory.
