Where to find the Skunk Gun in the Callisto Protocol

The Callisto Protocol is ridiculously difficult at times, especially if you run out of ammo. Your Stun Baton works okay at first, but unless you upgrade it, this melee weapon still takes several strikes to eliminate foes. To aid you on your journey, we recommend getting your hands on the Skunk Gun, a small hybrid between a pistol and a shotgun. This optional weapon comes in handy, especially before you acquire more powerful weapons later on.

Unfortunately, it’s easy to miss this weapon, but thankfully, the game gives you two opportunities to get your hands on it. Here’s where to find the Skunk Gun in The Callisto Protocol.

Where to find the Skunk Gun in Chapter 3: Aftermath

The earliest you can obtain the Skunk Gun Schematic is in the third chapter, Aftermath. Play until you’re required to access the Shu, and you’ll eventually find a fuse in front of a gate that leads to Workshop 0302. Instead of placing the fuse in the door that leads to the Shu, go back the way you came, then climb up onto the upper level, then back down, past the spiky walls.

Wrap around and you’ll pass the D4 Basement Storage sign on the wall, climb up onto the platform, then drop down on the other side, past the D4 Storage Sign. Straight ahead is a control switch that requires a fuse. Place the fuse into the panel, then activate it to open the gate. Head inside, through the vent in the wall, and you’ll find the Skunk Gun Schematic on a table to the right.

Where to find the Skunk Gun in Chapter 4: Habitat

A second Skunk Gun Schematic is found in the fourth chapter, titled Habitat. Play until you reach the objective that requires you to reach the biodome, which triggers after you go down an elevator. You’ll know you’re in the right place if you can see Jupiter in the background. Make your way into the Oxygen Processing area after destroying the patrolling robot.

Once inside the Oxygen Processing area, you’ll see an upgrade station on your right, a locked door ahead, and Botanical H624 to the left. Head left into the Botanical H624 area, and make your way past the rotating containers with plants in them. Continue all the way to the very end, and take a right into the Utility Hall H626 area.

Here, you’ll see a chest on your left and a narrow path you can squeeze through on your right. Head right, squeeze through the path, and you’ll be attacked by a small alien. The Skunk Gun Schematic will be on the right on top of a crate. Take it back to the upgrade station and purchase the weapon for 800 credits.

Everyone loved the attaché case from the original game and was very excited to see that it would return in the Resident Evil 4 remake. This case brings back the delicate balance of managing your inventory space between healing items, ammo, weapons, and other items that you want to bring with you. What's new are the little keychains you can attach to your case called Charms. These are more than minor cosmetic flair, though, as each Charm has a unique buff that can help turn the tides in your favor. However, being brand new, even veterans of the survival horror classic won't know how to get or use them immediately. Leon needs every advantage he can get in Resident Evil 4 remake, so help him out by checking out all the Charm effects and where to find them.
How to get Charms

Since Charms are a new addition in the remake of Resident Evil 4, the way to get them is also somewhat new. Those who played the original might recall a small shooting range Leon could mess around in. In the remake, this mini-game has been expanded quite a bit. There are now multiple shooting ranges and within them multiple challenges. The first one you can encounter is when you find the Merchant in Chapter 3 after going through the Quarry. Whichever shooting range you pick, enter the ornate elevator to be transported to the range.

Despite starting off in a rather rustic and quaint village in the Resident Evil 4 remake, you will eventually progress through many more sophisticated areas. When you reach Chapter 4 specifically, you will be navigating a lab with many dangerous monsters lurking about. A number of doors require a specific keycard to open, but there's one that's a bit harder to get through. To access the door's override control panel and give get yourself the level 3 security card to continue on your journey, you will need to remove a grate. Leon's fingers are good for shooting, but you'll need a tool to get this grate out of your way. Here's where you can find the wrench in Resident Evil 4 and escape the labs with your life.
Where to find the wrench

Once you're in the labs and blocked by the door, your only option to move forward is to find the wrench. However, this tool isn't in a place you'd likely think to look for it. From the blocked door, head south into the Incubation Lab, where you can observe several of the Regenerators suspended in tubes. If you take out your newly acquired thermal scope, which you should be well acquainted with after using it against Regenerators, you will notice a strange object inside one specific monster.
