While Capcom states that this warning may contain spoilers, it’s vague enough to warn players who want a blind playthrough. The warning explains that after the cutscene at the start of Chapter 12, there is a chance you can lose a key item. In Resident Evil 4 remake, key items are items that every player will have at some point that helps progress the main quest.
Luckily, there is a way to avoid this bug. Capcom urges players to refrain from using the knife to attack after the cutscene. That is, until you receive the notification for obtaining the key item. Make sure you have the key item in your attaché case before you do any knife slashing.
Capcom also states that it intends to patch this bug in the game’s next update. Not only that but players with saves affected by this glitch were promised that the issue would resolve for them. Many players in the Tweet’s replies are also chiming in with their own experiences with glitches and bugs during their playthroughs.
Even though Capcom is warning players of Resident Evil 4 remake of this critical progress bug, this also teaches a valuable lesson. Make sure to save your game often, and even keep multiple save files!
