Resident Evil 4 Garrador How to Beat

How to Easily Defeat the Garrador in Resident Evil 4 Remake

The formidable Garrador makes a return in Resident Evil 4 remake. Just like in the original, this enemy will pursue the player based on sound cues. However, there is one very simple way to defeat this dangerous enemy. This guide will break down one of the more efficient strategies on how to defeat the Garrador in Resident Evil 4 remake.

The first time the player will encounter the Garrador, chains will be hanging from the ceiling. These can be avoided, and it’s highly suggested that the player crouch to avoid making too much noise. You can, of course, strafe the enemy by running around and shooting at it once its claws get stuck in the wall. Both strategies are totally viable and work just fine. I happened to do the second one, since it took the least amount of time.

However, the most important thing in this fight is using a Flash Grenade once the parasite on the Garrador’s back becomes exposed. Flash Grenades will instantly kill any exposed parasite on an enemy, which will kill them in a flash. This is the best strategy to kill this enemy quickly, and efficiently.

If you can’t manage to find a Flash Grenade in any boxes, you can always craft one after you’ve bought the recipe from the Merchant. Flash Grenades are invaluable tools in disposing of enemies in the mid to late game, so it’s advised you always have a few on hand.
