Resident Evil 4

Glitches

100% hit rate with Infinite Rocket Launcher.

To do this, you need at least one normal weapon, and the Infinite Rocket Launcer.

At the begining of each chapter hit an enemy with any weapon once (any weapon other than the IRL) You can then fire away at anything with the Rocket Lancher, no matter if you hit or miss an enemy, and you will get 100% hit rate at the end of the chapter.
This happens because the game does not register the Rocket Launcher hits like the other weapons hits.

Bypassing the Los Gigantos boss fight.

When you reach the underground Castle area in which you have to fight two El Gigantes, you can bypass this difficult fight entirely. Climb the ladder and ride the zip line down to the trap door switch. Run back and do this over and over again really fast. Eventually you'll be able to get to the zip line before the actual zip line does, and riding it down will trap you inside the wall. From there, turn right and walk through the wall past the locked door. This bypasses the fight entirely, because you're glitch-walking behind the spot where the cutscene for the fight is supposed to take place.

How to make the Gatling Gun appear without allowing the red monk to use it

In the castle, there is a glitch where you can make the Gatling Gun appear without allowing the red monk to operate it.

First, progress normally and let the red monk escape. Once you return to the turret room, he will be operating the gatling gun. Immediate leave the room and return to the main hall with the merchant and save.

Load the game and re-enter the turret room. You need to chase the red monk again until he returns to the turret room. When you return to the turret room, the turret will be raised, but the red monk will be standing outside of the turret ring! Without the turret on his side, finish him with ease!

Instant KO against gatling gun Ganados

When you get to the second wave of enemies when Mike is helping you, destroy the guns with the Infinite Rocket Launcher BEFORE you enter that area. Once you go past the shutters, the Ganados will rush to their posts, but only to die immediately. It will also work with the regular Rocket Launcher, but that only has one shot, so... yeah.

Quickly reload your weapon

Whenever you have the chance to dodge (A and B, or L and R), if you are in the middle of a reload (Or just started one), and you perform the dodge, after you dodge your weapon you will have a full clip of ammo, as if you fully reloaded it. Useful for fighting bosses where you don\'t have a lot of time, or when you must reload an item that would normally take awhile (Such as the Broken Butterfly).

Ambush Congregation in the Castle for $$

In the castle area, right after engaging the Bugs in the sewers, you will see a large group of Ganados Zealots in mid prayer. If you spook them they will run away, and you miss out on ALOT of money. Right before the sewer they give you a flash grenade. SAVE IT. When preparing the ambush on the congregation, go north then swing across the chandelier. When on the other side look down, and try to hit them all with a flash grenade to stun. Immediately jump down and run north to their exit point so you lock them in. If you have an incendiary or frag grenade you could use it here, other wise line them up for some shotgun carnage. They will each drop a spinel and their leader drops an Illuminados pendant, worth around 32000 altogether.

Repeat the ladder climbing process until the door unlocks!

Krauser's Secret Weaknesss

Normally, The knife is a last ditch, limited range, very weak weapon, Dealing less than 5/8 the damage of an unupgraded handgun. In the timed fight versus krauser, If you knife him in the head it deals about 40x the damage that it would normally inflict. It saves ammo, and is as strong as a powerful magnum.
