Resident Evil 4 Shooting Gallery guide: locations, rewards, and tips

The fact that Resident Evil 4 remake retains the original’s ability to mix horror with campy fun is one of its greatest aspects. One moment you will be gripping your controller for dear life as a swarm of bloodthirsty villagers relentlessly pursue you, and the next Leon’s making quips and performing suplexes. There was one small fun diversion in the original game that has been expanded and improved for the remake, which is the optional Shooting Gallery. This time there are multiple of these safe spaces to hone your aim, but also a fully developed system of challenges, scores, and, best of all, rewards. If you want to take a breather from all the horrors that await you in Resident Evil 4 remake, here’s where you can find all the Shooting Galleries, what you can win, and some helpful tips.

Shooting Gallery locations

There are a total of five locations across all 16 Chapters of Resident Evil 4 remake, and they all are within the safety of a Merchant zone. Each one, except the last, will introduce a new set of three challenges, but all previous challenges from past Shooting Galleries will be present in the later ones. That means you could technically wait and only visit the final one to take on all the challenges there. Here’s where you can find each individual Shooting Gallery in order of appearance:

  • Just after passing through the Quarry in the cave with the Merchant.
  • In the Grand Hall Merchant area in the Castle.
  • After the Verdugo fight and you take the elevator up, you will immediately come across this Merchant spot.
  • On the Island, after finishing the terminal puzzles and you meet up with Ashley again, the Merchant is just beyond a gate.
  • Right before the game’s point of no return in the Specimen Storage building.

If you get a high enough score in any of the Shooting Gallery challenges, you will earn yourself either silver or gold tokens. These are not valuable on their own but instead exchanged with a machine to get a random Charm. You need to insert three tokens into the machine, and hope you get a good one! Charms are the only rewards here, so don’t expect any extra guns or items.

Shooting Gallery tips

The Shooting Gallery has some interesting mechanics to it. You begin each one by choosing the challenge. Again, each range comes with three challenges, and each challenge will give you a different weapon to use in it, but sometimes you get two. You have infinite ammo, so no need to worry about wasting shots. As you would guess, the game consists of targets popping up — in the shape of pirates — that you need to shoot before they go off-screen again while avoiding hitting the sailor targets. Each pirate hit will add to your score, while hitting a sailor subtracts from your score. Note that some pirates will hold a skull that is worth bonus points if you hit it.

Your final score comes down to these factors: the number of targets hit, skulls hit, and time left after finishing the challenge. You can also unlock bonus rounds in each of the Shooting Gallery locations by meeting their specific requirements. Bonus rounds give you some extra time to rack up a bunch of points on more targets. Here’s how to unlock each of the bonus rounds in the different galleries.:

  • First Shooting Gallery: Destroy all pirates.
  • Second Shooting Gallery: Destroy all pirates with 20 seconds remaining
  • Third Shooting Gallery: Destroy all pirates in 10 shots or less.
  • Fourth Shooting Gallery: Destroy all pirates, and, in challenge 4A use less than 20 shots.

iPhone 15 Pro can natively run the latest Resident Evil and Assassin’s Creed games

In a major stride forward for mobile gaming, Apple announced during today's event that console games like Assassin's Creed Mirage, Resident Evil 4's remake, and Resident Evil Village are coming to the iPhone 15 Pro. These aren't watered-down mobile spinoffs or cloud-streamed games either; they're running natively with the help of the A17 Pro chip.

During the gaming segment of Tuesday's Apple event, the power of the iPhone 15 Pro's A17 Pro chip was highlighted. The 3-nanometer chip has 19 billion transistors, a six-core CPU, a 16-core Neural Engine that can handle 35 trillion operations per second, and a six-core GPU that supports things like mesh shading and hardware-accelerated ray tracing in video games. Several game developers were featured following its introduction to explain and show off just how powerful the A17 Pro Chip is. While this segment started with games already native to mobile, like The Division Resurgence, Honkai: Star Rail, and Genshin Impact, it didn't take long for some games made for systems like PS5 and Xbox Series X to appear.
Capcom's Tsuyoshi Kanda showed up and revealed that natively running versions of Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil 4 are coming to the iPhone 15 Pro before the end of the year. Later, Apple confirmed that Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Mirage, which launches next month on PC and consoles, will also get a native iPhone 15 Pro port in early 2024, while Death Stranding is slated for a 2023 iPhone 15 Pro launch.
Historically, console-quality games like these have been impossible to get running on a mobile phone without the use of cloud gaming. Confirming that these three AAA games can all run natively on iPhone 15 Pro is certainly an impactful way for Apple to show just how powerful the A17 Pro chip is.

All Flarlic locations in Pikmin 4
A Flarlic growing in a broken pot.

The Pikmin series has always highlighted the idea of commanding huge numbers of tiny creatures at once. With Pikmin 4 utilizing the power of the Switch, more Pikmin than ever can appear on screen, but that doesn't mean you can just grind out an entire army right off the bat. The game will limit you on how many total Pikmin you can control, forcing you to manage your forces between the different types. While this limitation will feel constricting at first, by collecting special plants called Flarlic, you can increase that number by 10. There are 12 total Flarlics to collect, with each stage having one on the surface and one in a cave to find, but you only need eight of them to reach the max Pikmin limit. Here's where to find all the Flarlic in Pikmin 4 so you can travel with a full army.
Sun-Speckled Terrace
The Flarlic you can find on the surface is way up north beyond the electric fence that you need Yellow Pikmin to pass. You'll need at least five Yellow Pikmin to toss up on the potted plant next to the fence in order to reach the Flarlic on the elevated mound.

The second is in the Last-Frost Cavern. Go to the top-left corner of the large northwest room and pluck it out of a sunken plant pot hidden behind some pots you need to smash.
Blossoming Arcadia
Our surface Flarlic is up north on the south side of the water and requires Blue Pikmin to bring back, or Ice Pikmin to freeze the water below it. It is tucked inside a wooden structure you need to toss some Pikmin up to collect.
