Resident Evil 4 Remake takes on an already great original game and somehow makes it better. Even the boss fights received a major upgrade in this Remake. Mendez is one of the early bosses in the game, who you finally get to take on in Chapter 6. However, once defeated, Mendez drops a false eye as a reward for the player in the RE4 Remake.

  • He is also the Chief of the Village Leon is currently trapped in.
  • Moreover, players interact with Mendez several times before the ultimate boss fight. As Mendez is chasing us around trying to get Ashley Graham back.
  • Mendes also injects Leon with the T-virus, or the virus that has infected all villagers.
  • The boss fights with Mendez takes place inside a burning slaughterhouse. Moreover, there are two phases to the fight with Mendez.
  • During the first phase, Mendez will fight you up close on the ground. Meanwhile, Mendez will lose his legs during the second phase and hang from the ceiling. He will also throw projectiles at the player during this phase.
  • Therefore, it is essential to pack a shotgun for close-range fights while a rifle or handgun for long-range battles.

Many bosses are fighting in the Resident Evil 4 Remake, and all of them are unique. These fights play out differently and often drop different rewards. This guide will help you acquire the false eye of Mendez in RE4 Remake and what you can do with it once it is in your inventory.

Mendez is one of the strongest bosses in the game, with a towering presence. Even before the boss fight, Mendez makes several appearances throughout the game as he is the Village Chief. Whenever he appears, he causes problems for our protagonist, Leon Kennedy. However, he does not cause you any harm until you finally face him by the end of Chapter 6 for a boss fight.

Although he does inject Leon with the T-virus in the earlier chapters or what he refers to as the Gift. Moreover, he also appears during the section when the players infiltrate his house. Even during this interaction, he does not harm Leon and tells Leon how his body has also accepted the gift, as his final goal is to bring Ashley Graham back to the Church for sacrifice.

The game ensures players realize earlier that Mendez is no easy foe to defeat. In the earlier section, right before the boss fight, Mendez is chasing you around. However, all you can do here is to run away from him as your bullets do no damage. You get away from him as the bridge collapses behind you until Mendez can not follow.

However, once you get to the slaughterhouse, it triggers a cut scene. During the cut scene, Mendez breaks into the slaughterhouse to capture Ashley. Therefore, Leon rolls an explosive barrel toward Mendez and shoots it to save Ashley, causing an explosion. Leon thinks this is the end of Mendez. However, this is just the beginning of the boss fight.

First Form Of Mendez

Through the explosion and fire emerges Mendez, revealing his true form. The fire from the explosion burns away Mendez’s long trench coat, and underneath is a hideous monster. Mendez’s first form is a scorpion-like creature with a thin torso with insect-like tentacle arms sticking out of each side. Moreover, two long arms are sticking out from his back, similar to a scorpion sting.

The first form of Mendez brings the fight up close to the players. Mendez will attack you directly; the best strategy is to shoot him in the head. Moreover, it is best to run around, avoiding and evading any incoming attacks. It is also best to bring out your shotgun in this earlier stage, as the spray and power of the shotgun will prove incredibly effective at close range.

Once you have gotten enough hits in, Mendez will get stunned, allowing you to Melee attack him. During the shocked phase, Mendez will expose the eye sticking out from his back, where Leon can stab or shoot to get greater damage. These Melee attacks will greatly drain his health and allow you to save up ammo.

Additionally, I would recommend staying on the bottom floor during the first phase as evading him on the upper floor becomes difficult. Also, collect the gunpowder and resources on the bottom floor to craft more ammo.

Second Form Of Mendez

After dealing enough damage, Mendez’s body will split in half, and he loses his legs. However, this is not the end of the fight as the collapsed Mendez gets up even stronger.

During the second phase of the fight, Mendez grows two more limbs from his back much more quicker. Moreover, the fight changes from up close to a long-range battle as Mendez uses his two back limbs to hand from the ceiling.

Mendez will now throw projectiles from a distance. These projectiles will include burning beams from the slaughterhouse and explosive barrels. All you can do here is evade the burning beams and get a few shots in. Moreover, Mendez will get up close a few times; however, they will run back once you have gotten a few hits in.

Therefore, it is also recommended to show up to this fight with the best weapons in Resident Evil 4 Remake. Some weapons are for close-range fights, while some are for long-range. You have to wait until Mendez picks up the explosive barrels and shoots them before he throws them. This will deal a lot more damage to Mendez and fast-track this phase.

Once you have dealt enough damage, Mendez will fall to the ground ending the fight. I will also recommend fighting this from the upper floor of the slaughterhouse, as it is easier to shoot from here. It is also easier to evade incoming projectiles from the upper floor. Moreover, this is when you can collect resources from the top floor and craft ammo or health items.

The Reward Of Mendez’s False Eye

The reward for this battle is weird and has fans asking questions. Once you have defeated Mendez, he will fall to the ground, and his false eye will pop out of his head. This is Mendez’s left eye which can also be seen to be a little damaged. Players can collect this eye and keep it in their inventory.

However, it might seem like this eye has a greater purpose in the game, yet it does not. This false eye is not part of any puzzle or important plot point. The false eye is just a treasured item in RE 4 Remake that can be sold to the Merchant. Moreover, the eye is worth 12,000 Pestas, a good amount of change.

This reward may seem a little underwhelming after defeating such a menacing boss. However, money is still an important part of the game and something you will always need. Furthermore, collecting other loot in the burning slaughterhouse would be best after defeating Mendez. The slaughterhouse, even though it is burning, will not fall until Leon jumps out of the window.

Final Words

Resident Evil 4 Remake has some of the most iconic boss fights in the franchise. Each of the bosses is completely unique from the others, and their fights play out very differently, which makes the game one of the best in the franchise. Moreover, the game goes the extra mile in setting up its bosses, so you take them seriously every time they show up.

Mendez is one such boss that is first introduced in the earlier chapters of the game. However, you do not fight him until Chapter 6; by then, you are well aware of his strength. Moreover, the fight is designed in such a way that makes it very exciting and thrilling. So you are always on the edge of your seat while fighting him.

Therefore, it is even more satisfying when you finish him off, and his false eye pops out. So you always have his eye as a trophy for going up against such a strong foe, or you can sell it if you are looking for quick cash.
