New Resident Evil 4 remake bug is critical against progressing

While glitches may be funny at times, they can also hinder your progress through the main quest of a game. Capcom today pointed out one of these bugs in a Twitter post on Resident Evil‘s Twitter account. It warns players of this critical progress bug at the beginning of Chapter 12.

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.

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!
