Be warned, this feat is tricky to pull off without a long-range rifle, but if you use the steeple of the church as a guide, you can fire off a few rounds at the base of the belfry to be saved by the bell. The allotted two to four minutes you’ll save from avoiding villagers putting you in a full nelson for Chainsaw Man’s hungry blades should give you enough time to scour the village for ammo, herbs, and other key items before “Bingo” adjourns. Consequentially, this RE4 lifehack should also save the life of that cow in the barn that burns to a crisp during Leon’s “safety dance” with Chainsaw Man and company.


Resident Evil 4 is available to play on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
