As we’ve seen many times with the Resident Evil series, the Resident Evil 4 remake brings back some of the silly costumes from the original. But Ashley’s armor is one of the most significant costumes in RE history: as it prevents her from being carried, and protects her from most forms of damage. Here’s how to pick up one of the most useful unlocks in the remake.
To unlock the Knight Armor for Ashley, you need to clear the game on Hardcore or higher with an A ranking
All you need to do to unlock the Knight Armor costume for Ashley is beat the game on Hardcore (hard) or higher with an A ranking. That’s it. In addition to having to actually get through the game on Hardcore, you need to finish the campaign within 10 hours. That’s doable for a lot of folks!
Hardcore Mode is available right from the start and does not need a full clear to unlock: but it’s best if you go for the A ranking on Hardcore when you actually know what you’re doing. Worrying too much about a timed playthrough on your first try with the remake is generally stressful, and if you spend too much time wandering around you might lock yourself out of an A ranking by the time you’re halfway through.
After all, you may as well go all out and try for an S+ ranking on a subsequent run, or try out Professional Mode.
