How to unlock Mercenaries mode in Resident Evil 8 Village

The Mercenaries return to the saga in Resident Evil 8 Village on PC, PS5, PS4, and Xbox. Find out how to unlock it and enjoy the best tips.

The first requirement to unlock Mercenaries Mode in Resident Evil 8 Village is to complete the game once (no matter the difficulty level) in order for the Extras Store to be enabled and to be able to purchase it. If you look at it, the price is ridiculous; It is designed to be the first thing you acquire as soon as the story ends. This new version of the Mercenaries works in a similar way to what we already saw in other installments of the saga, although there are some new features that will surprise you. In this section of our guide, we tell you everything you need to know.

Information and tips for Mercenaries mode

  • Initially, you can only play Act 1; To unlock access to the following you have to achieve, at least, rank A in each of them.
  • The target score for the LZ Answerer lightsaber is rank SS in all acts. Rank S adds new skills, rank A allows access to the next level and rank B only serves to get 5,000 Lei.


  • Between rounds, you have unlimited time to buy weapons and items from the Duke. In this room, some resources appear and you can also check the objectives and rewards of the area where you are.


  • Each area has a certain number of enemies. It is not necessary to kill them all to reach the goal and complete it, but it is highly recommended to do so if your goal is to achieve the maximum score.


  • The game consists of defeating as many enemies as you can before time runs out. Each kill increases the maximum time available by several seconds.


  • The best way to score points is to chain kills before the combo counter drops to zero, so it is very important to advance at a good pace and not go too long without killing enemies.


  • Don’t abuse grenades while fighting basic enemies; You won’t find too many and they are very useful against armored enemies.


  • Do not waste money on medicine, as there is no better defense than a good attack. Instead, buy the shotgun or sniper rifle as soon as you can and try to upgrade any of these weapons; they are very effective in this mode.


  • You can get extra time by breaking yellow spheres; Sometimes they appear far from your position, but the reward is worth it, as the remaining time is transformed into points at the end of the round.


  • The great novelty of this renewed Mercenaries mode is the inclusion of skills. They appear in the form of blue spheres and breaking them allows you to choose between three different abilities.


  • If you are not sure which skills fit your way of playing, it is always advisable to bet on the ones that give you extra speed and bonuses for killing with the weapons you have previously purchased.


  • In some areas, special elements such as colored birds or a special guest like Angie may appear. They count towards the total number of enemies in each area, so you must be quick and manage to shoot them before leaving the area, you will get extra points.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
