Verdugo in the Underground Laboratory

You\’ll encounter the Verdugo in the Underground Laboratory during chapter 10 of the game.

The elevator will be out of service, and you\’ll need to reset the Circuit Breaker in the western part of the facility to get it working again.

The boss will suddenly appear while you\’re on your way to the elevator and start chasing after Leon.

Boss Fight Description

You need to act quickly. One of the Liquid Nitrogen Shower switches is near the circuit breaker. After pressing it, run some distance away to avoid getting killed.

The boss should get temporarily frozen.

Take advantage of this opportunity to leave the circuit breaker area. Run to the gate and use the valve to raise it slowly (hold down the interaction button).

A short cut-scene will show you that the elevator has started working. However, it will take some time to reach the underground laboratory, and you have two options:

  1. Defend against Verdugo before the elevator arrives – this will save your supplies.
  2. Kill Verdugo – it will cost you a lot of supplies, but the boss will drop an artifact.

There are three other Liquid Nitrogen Showers in the area that activate in the same way as the first one. Use them while Verdugo is chasing Leon.

You can attack the frozen boss by kicking and shooting it with your best weapons (shotgun, magnum, rifle, rocket launcher).

You also need to be aware of the boss\’s attacks from ventilation shafts – you may have already been attacked while on your way to the circuit breaker.

When the message appears on the screen, quickly press the Evade button (Circle/B), and you will not receive any damage. If Leon gets grabbed, it is best to quickly stab the knife into the monster\’s body.

You can find a lot of loot in one of the lab rooms and unlock a shortcut – this will allow you to run all over the central area without the risk of suddenly being trapped.

Use sprinting and run in a zig-zag pattern to avoid the boss\’s jump when you hear it chasing you.

If you\’ve decided to dodge your boss, make your way to the elevator as soon as it arrives.

Whether you picked the first or second method, step into the elevator and activate it.


Question 1: How do I defeat boss Verdugo in Resident Evil 4 Remake?

To defeat Verdugo in Resident Evil 4 Remake, you must first freeze him. Use the liquid nitrogen tanks located throughout the room to freeze him, then use a powerful weapon like the rocket launcher to inflict massive damage. When Verdugo is not frozen, use high-powered weapons like the shotgun or magnum to take him down. Be sure to keep moving to avoid his attacks, as he is quick and deadly. When his health is low, use your knife to finish him off. It may take several attempts to defeat him, so be patient and keep trying.

Question 2: Is it possible to avoid fighting Verdugo in Resident Evil 4 Remake?

Yes, it is possible to avoid fighting Verdugo in Resident Evil 4 Remake. To avoid him, you must first collect the two pieces of the queen ant statue located in two different areas of the castle. Once you have both pieces, go to the room where you would normally fight Verdugo and use the statue to open a secret passage. You can then proceed to the next area without having to fight him. However, if you choose to avoid him, you will miss out on the rewards and experience points that come with defeating him.
