Resident Evill Village, easy unlimited ammo for the NG +, the trick to know

Resident Evill Village

In the Resident Evil Village bonus store, you can buy unlimited ammunition with completion points, provided you have upgraded the desired weapon to the merchant as much as possible during story mode. However, it is almost impossible to have enough Lei, the money of Resident Evil Village, to upgrade all weapons to the maximum in a single game ... while upgrading a weapon to the maximum allows you to unlock the purchase of its weapons. unlimited ammo during the New Game +! There is still a technique to unlock them all, which we detail in our complete Resident Evil Village solution.

Unlimited ammunition in Resident Evil Village: the trick to know

Indeed, know that some weapons, like the Lemi, can be improved to the maximum from the beginning of Chapter 5: Lac de Moreau, while others, like the Magnum, can only be unlocked when you reach the last chapter of the game. In order to unlock everything in one game, you're going to have to juggle your money and saves. You should know that once a weapon is increased to the maximum, the challenge is validated, whether you save or not. The technique is therefore very simple:

Keep enough money on you, go near the merchant and save; Then speak to the merchant and improve a first weapon to the maximum (all the black boxes on the right of the improvement menu must be filled with white). There you have it, the challenge is validated! Load up your game and repeat the same maneuver with another weapon, and so on. This will unlock all the unlimited ammo options in the bonus shop. You will still need enough Completion Points to buy them all.

We could not verify if this technique worked until we had finished the game for the first time. If in doubt, feel free to keep a save aside at the very start of the final chapter, Chapter 9: Miranda, with enough cash to upgrade each weapon. Load this save once the bonus store is unlocked and treat yourself! If you run out of money, don't hesitate to sell your entire inventory until you have enough. You won't save between each weapon upgrade anyway.

Resident Evil Village's tall vampire lady explained: The whole story of Lady Dimitrescu

You play as Ethan Winters in Resident Evil Village, but let's be honest, he's not the real star of the show. No, social media has bestowed that honor upon Lady Alcina Dimitrescu (pronounced 'Dimitreesk'), better known as the tall vampire lady.

This terrifying villain stalks the halls of the game's castle area along with her three spooky daughters, and Lady Dimitrescu is approximately 9 feet, 6 inches tall in her heels and fabulous hat, developer Capcom confirmed. However, you might be wondering what her deal is and how she fits into the overall plot.

A trip to Castle Dimitrescu

Early in the game, you first see the towering Lady Dimitrescu as she argues with fellow village lord Heisenberg over the fate of a captive Ethan. Their leader, Mother Miranda, the game's main villain, hands him over to Heisenberg, but the wily Ethan escapes.

Our hero makes his way to Castle Dimitrescu (the first of the four lords' territories you explore), where he's quickly captured by creepy vampiric daughters Bela, Cassandra and Daniela and brought before their stylish mom. She feeds on Ethan's blood, but doesn't seem impressed by the taste.

They sadistically hang Ethan from the ceiling by stabbing hooks through his hands (and it looks so darn painful), but he soon escapes and wanders the castle halls.

Various diary entries reveal that the Dimitrescus have been hiring young women from the village to work in the castle, and the game's concept art confirms that the ghoulish enemies Ethan fights in the castle's dungeon are transformed women. Male victims are simply drained of their blood, some of which is used as the secret ingredient in the family's wine, Sanguis Virginis (which means 'virgin's blood' in Latin, so someone should've alerted the authorities long ago).  

Ethan figures out that Bela, Cassandra and Daniela become vulnerable when exposed to the cold, so he smashes some of the castle's windows to let in the chilly breeze from outside and kills them one by one.

Ethan, you made her mad.

CapcomSeeking revenge

Lady Dimitrescu is understandably furious at the deaths of her daughters (maybe you shouldn't have been such a bunch of cruel jerks then?) and purses Ethan directly, extending her fingernails into long claws. She slices off our boy's arm -- don't worry, he reattaches it and it works just fine because of his healing abilities -- and follows him around the castle like the Tyrant from Resident Evil 2. 

'The entire bloodline of House Dimitrescu is done in, by the likes of you?' she yells.

Yay, another scary stalker enemy. (I actually love them, Capcom. Never stop.)

A file reveals the existence of the Dagger of Death's Flowers, a weapon forged in the Middle Ages and coated with a variety of poisons from across Europe. It was designed to kill demons and monsters... and vampires, I guess. It seems someone tried to use it against our magnificent Dimitrescu, and she hid it in the castle so no one could repeat that stunt.

Ethan ultimately finds this Chekhov's gun in a coffin, and stabs Dimitrescu with it. Phew, she's dead.

Oh wait no, she's actually mutated into a massive, terrifying beast to give us the game's first real boss battle. After a pretty intense fight, Ethan slays the beast and ends Dimitrescu's reign of terror for good.

Where did Lady Dimitrescu come from?

Much later in the game, a file reveals that big bad Mother Miranda lost her daughter Eva to the Spanish flu, a real-life pandemic that ran from 1918 to 1921 and caused an estimated 50 million deaths. The grieving mom wandered into a cave to die and happened on the Megamycete, the source of the mold behind the beasties of Resident Evil 7 and Village. 

Its regenerative properties granted Miranda immortality, and she realized it absorbed the consciousness of people who died -- meaning it could bring Eva back to life. She started using villagers as guinea pigs in her quest to find the perfect vessel for Eva's return, and used the mold to create a yucky parasite called the Cadou for more-efficient experimentation.

Let's try not to think about what Dimitrescu did to the person who painted this lovely portrait.

Medical reports on each of four lords reveals that they were implanted with cadou to test their candidacy as vessels for Eva. Most test subjects just turned into stinky, hairy lycans, so the four lords became village leaders.

The 44-year-old Dimitrescu was an excellent host, since the parasite massively increased her ability to heal wounds, which is why Ethan's attacks were ineffective before using the dagger.

Those regenerative properties also increased her body size, so the internet can thank the icky parasite for her impressive height.

However, a hereditary blood disease meant she had to feast on human flesh and blood regularly to maintain her powers -- thus her vampirism. She also ran the risk of mutating uncontrollably if her regeneration wasn't balanced, and the dagger's poison presumably threw off that balance. Ethan, that was just rude. 

As a result of these problems, Miranda deemed Dimitrescu 'an unfit vessel for Eva,' but gave her a castle, three charming daughters and a seemingly infinite supply of victims.

And they all lived happily ever after. Until Ethan killed them.
