The Chicago Typewriter, a legendary weapon present in the original Resident Evil 4 couldn’t be left out of the remake, but this time it is called the Chicago Sweeper. And, as it happened in 2005, this one also has some requirements before you can unlock it. In this guide, we’ll tell you how to get this powerful machine gun.
How to get the Chicago Sweeper in Resident Evil 4 remake
To get the Chicago Sweeper in Resident Evil 4 remake first you must complete the Main Story once in Professional mode with at least Rank A. That is, we must complete the campaign in Professional difficulty, and in less than 7 hours. It seems difficult, but remember that you can use tricks like the infinite rocket launcher to quickly complete the game.
As with the Primal Knife, once the unlock requirement is complete, you need to go to buy it at the Extra Content Store. From the Weapons tab, you’ll be able to find the Chicago Sweeper, which has a cost of 2000 CP (Challenge Points, obtainable by completing the challenge list in the game).
The Chicago Sweeper is a special weapon and, as happens with the Primal Knife, appears in the typewriter storage once purchased from the Extra Content Store.
This submachine gun may not look like much, but it does have a trick: its exclusive upgrade makes it have infinite ammo. In fact, save 30 Spinels to get an upgrade ticket in the Merchant’s special shop, and you can instantly unlock this improvement.
Using an upgrade ticket on the Chicago Sweeper also maxes out its Capacity and Reload stats, so if you want to continue investing money in it after this we would only have to improve its Power.
Oh, and a very nice detail: if you’re using Leon’s gangster suit when you reload the Chicago Sweeper there’s a special animation:
