PSA: Get some free easy money from the lake in the Resident Evil 4 remake

Need money? Drive your boat around

If you’re short on cash in the Resident Evil 4 remake, the point where you gain access to the boat in Chapter 4 is a perfect place to farm some money. Here’s how to do it.

Look for the barrels in the lake and drive over them for free peseta (money)

You may have noticed barrels floating in the water in the lake. They’re not a hazard: they’re free money!

Drive the boat over them directly to smash them open and gain a small Peseta boost. While it might seen miniscule there are a lot of barrels littered all over the lake (and its various spokes within the wheel of that zone), so do yourself a favor and take a joyride before you get acquainted with the lake itself.

There’s a large number of cash barrels in the path to the west of the lake

After you’ve scoured the main lake, you’ll want to head to the western path marked in the map above.

There’s a lengthy linear path that has tons of cash barrels to pop open, which will give you a pretty big injection of gold in a short period of time.
