How to unlock Mad Chainsaw mode for the Resident Evil 4 remake demo


RESIDENT Evil 4’s long-awaited remake is hyping up players with its newest demo.

Fans can play through the first area of the game, and their save can be transferred to the full game when it releases.

Would you accept the challenge?

Titled the Chainsaw Demo, it allows players to enjoy the same type of demo that was released for the original game.

Both demos cover the same area of the game, but the remake comes with a number of major differences.

There are several secrets and Easter Eggs to find just in the demo, and one of the most interesting additions is Mad Chainsaw mode.

This is a hardcore difficulty mode which will significantly increase the challenge the game provides.

There is a chance for this mode to appear randomly, but there is also a way to force the game into hardcore mode.

The developers have added a cheat code into the demo which will allow you to trigger the option for Mad Chainsaw difficulty.

Here’s how you unlock the hardest difficulty in the Resident Evil 4 remake’s Chainsaw Demo.

The cheat code is activated in the Main Menu while you are hovering over the Main Story option.

Once the correct menu option is highlighted, input the following cheat code.

  • Press and hold L1+R1 throughout the other inputs

This will allow you to choose to activate Mad Chainsaw mode for your next playthrough.
