The RE4 remake has plenty of difficult boss fights, and one of the most memorable is the fight with the creature from the lake.
The plot of Resident Evil 4 Remake tells about the adventures of agent Leon Kennedy, who is trying to save the kidnapped Ashley Graham from the tenacious clutches of a creepy cult. To find her, Leon will have to fight his way through hordes of infected peasants, as well as fight several giant monsters.
The battle with the creature from the lake is one of the most interesting fights in the game. The point is not only that this is a rather dangerous opponent, but also that the arena for this battle becomes a wide lake. If you failed to defeat this boss the first time, then the tips from this guide will help you deal with the mutant living in the lake.
Where to find the lake creature in Resident Evil 4 Remake
During the passage of Chapter 3, you will reach the edge of the lake, after which a small cut-scene will start. Watching two peasants in a boat through binoculars, Leon will catch a glimpse of a giant sea monster that will briefly appear on the surface of the water, and then disappear back into the lake.
To fight this monster, you first need to get fuel to start the boat left on the pier. Once you pick up fuel at one of the hatchery houses, all you have to do is fill up the boat and head to the center of the lake for the first boss fight in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
How to defeat the lake creature in Resident Evil 4 Remake
This fight is very different from the other boss fights in Resident Evil 4 Remake as it has several restrictions. First, Leon will not be able to use firearms from his inventory. Secondly, you will not have access to healing items, so you will not be able to restore health during the battle. Instead of Leon's life bar in this battle, you need to follow the boat's durability scale. As soon as it drops to zero, Leon will fall into the water, after which he will be devoured by a creature from the lake.
To deal damage to the monster, you will need to use the harpoons lying in the boat. Luckily, they are endless, so you can throw as many of them as you want without worrying that they will run out at the most inopportune moment. Try to get as many harpoons into the monster's back as possible, as this will deplete a significant portion of its health.
While the creature from the lake is dragging a boat with Leon on board, you will need to dodge various obstacles. A few driftwood collisions will quickly use up the boat's HP, and you'll have to start the whole fight from the beginning.
When the monster stops and turns towards Leon, you will have the opportunity to throw a harpoon directly into the monster's mouth to deal massive damage to it. If you miss, the creature from the lake will attack the boat and significantly reduce its health reserves.
Sometimes during this attack, the enemy dives under the water and disappears from your field of vision. To find it in time, look around in all directions and listen to the roar of the boss. As soon as you spot him, prepare your harpoons. You will have time to throw at least two harpoons into the monster's mouth, so don't miss this moment.
If none of the harpoons hit the target, then the monster will bite into the boat with its teeth. At this moment, you need to quickly press the buttons shown on the screen to fight off the monster with minimal damage.
Once you deal enough damage to the creature from the lake, a cut-scene will start, after which the battle will come to an end. Then you will have the opportunity to freely explore the lake and its surroundings.
