Merchant Requests In Resident Evil 4 Remake
A detailed guide on Resident Evil 4 Remake Merchant Requests.

There are 19 merchant requests in Resident Evil 4 Remake, each with a new task the player can embark on. Once players obtain the side quest pages and fulfill the given task, they must go to the Merchant and inform him.

The Merchant will reward the player with some Spinels, a sort of exchangeable gem you use to trade with the Merchant. Players can obtain various unique items such as Weapon Equipment, Exclusive Upgrade Tickets, or Treasure Maps in exchange for Spinels.

Key Takeaways

  • These requests come with a particular task the player must complete and act as side quests in Resident Evil 4 Remake.
  • Out of all 16 chapters, Chapters 6, 8, 13, and 16 do not contain any Merchant Requests.
  • Upon completing each Merchant Request, players are granted Spinels, a form of the gem used for trading at the Merchant Store.
  • Once you complete all 19 Merchant Requests, you unlock a silver trophy/achievement named “Jack Of All Trades.”

Reward For Completing The Merchant Requests

Upon completing all 19 Merchant Requests, players obtain a silver achievement/trophy, “Jack Of All Trades.” Therefore, if you are planning to earn all available achievements, going through the Merchant Requests is a must.

Each Merchant Request consists of an entertaining task, sometimes quite effortless and sometimes challenging. These side quests may not directly impact the main storyline, but they’re definitely worth your time, especially if you wish to discover every aspect of the gameplay.

I hope our Merchant Requests guide proves helpful and allows players to take on any side quest without much trouble. Good luck!
