The Resident Evil 4 Red9 handgun struck out as a deadly and memorable weapon in 2005’s original title, and it has remained a fan favorite to this day. With some tweaks in the new remake, the Red9 still retains its strong impact and remains a valuable addition to any gamer’s arsenal.

With its impressive firepower and consistent functionality, the Red9 handgun is a strong weapon choice that can help you overcome the difficulties of Resident Evil 4 Remake throughout your journey.
Initially, you can only find this gun from a specific region free of cost in Chapter 4 but later on, you can even buy it from the merchant in Chapter 5 of the game. Considering the shooting power this pistol has, you should definitely need to have this weapon in your inventory while progressing through the challenges and quests. This walkthrough will explain to you exactly where to find the Red9 handgun in Resident Evil 4 Remake if you’ve been searching in vain.
Where to Get the Red9 in Resident Evil 4 Remake
You will not be able to get the Resident Evil 4 Remake Red9 until you reach Chapter 4 and it can be a tough job for you to find it if you don’t know about the Red9 location. Here’s where it is located.
Chapter 4: The Lake
The Red9 can only be found during Chapter 4 of Resident Evil 4 Remake. In this chapter, Leon is roaming around the lake on his boat. The first thing you need to do is head for the shipwreck in the center of the lake. After defeating Del Lago, you will obtain the Lake Key which is a must to access the boat. After getting the key, pick the small boat which is located at the same location, and head toward the center of the lake. Once you’re close enough, jump out of the boat and swim to the shipwreck.
- Find the Treasure Chest: Enter the cabin once you have reached the wreckage. There are a few barrels and a treasure chest containing a precious gem on board. Head through the hole in the wall and then head left to find the first treasure chest. Inside this chest, you will find an Alexandrite.
- Find the Second Chest: Leave the cabin and return to the shipwreck once you have the Alexandrite. Go up the stairwell, around the wreckage, and down the opposite side. There is a doorway that will take you to the opposite side of the ship. Inside, you will find the second treasure chest that contains the Red9 handgun.
If you have not succeeded to acquire the Red9 for free, don’t worry; you can buy one from The Merchant in Chapter 5. Following your successful rescue of Ashley from the church in Chapter 5, the merchant will begin to sell it. You can buy the handgun when you two return to Village Square where he’ll have a stall close to the Town Hall.
For a short time, he’ll be selling it at a lower price; if you’re interested, be prepared to part with 9,300 pesetas. Moreover, you may require a stock attachment to control the pistol’s recoil because you will find it hard to use at first and the stock greatly improves the fire accuracy. Just keep in mind that it will not be available right away, so patience is key.
Just keep playing until you get to the part where you have to survive the house stand-off with Luis by boarding up the windows. That’s at the end of Chapter 5, by the way. Once you’re done with that, swing by the vendor and you’ll see the Red9 up for grabs in the “Trade” menu for just 9 spinels.
