Mendez is one of the main bosses in the game that players will have to defeat in order to progress ahead in the main story of the game. Mendez is the tough Hat guy that you have met several times during the early missions of the game and you will finally get to defeat him in the Sixth Chapter of the game.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Mendez in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Mendez will come after you in the Sixth Chapter for a couple of times and once you have escaped him for the first time, he will come after you again when you reach the Slaughter House. A cutscene will start in which he will kick down Leon and after the cutscene, you will get to fight the Demon Form of Mendez. Mendez is like a scorpion + spider demon and at the start of the fight, you will have to deal heavy damage to Mendez to separate him from his lower body.
Use the Riot Shotgun for this boss as it will deal the most-heavy damage to him. You can also use the Submachine Gun at him to deal a decent amount of damage to him. Mendez has a grabbing attack that can be dodged and you can also get out of the grab attack by striking him with the knife when the icon pop-up on the screen. He also has a smashing attack that you need to dodge by maintaining a distance from him.
Once you have dealt enough damage, he will go down and you will get the prompt to knife him. Go near him to knife him and deal a bit more damage to separate his top body from the lower. Two scorpion claws will come out of his body and he will use them to throw the flaming wooden planks at you from distance as well as the explosive barrels. At this stage, you need to use the Submachine gun or the Rifle to deal damage at the distance.
When he throws the planks, you can dodge them by pressing the evade button at the perfect time. You can also move away from them to dodge them. When you see him holding the barrels, you need to shoot at the barrels to deal high damage to him. Keep shooting at him to defeat him. A cutscene will start in which he will be killed and you will have to get out of the Slaughter House before you get burned down in the fire.
