RE4 Remake Unlockables (Costumes, Weapons & Accessories)
Resident Evil 4 Remake has a knack for rewarding players with their progression in the game, especially when they play more than one.
One of these is the Extra Content Shop, which allows you to obtain unlockable items once you have met certain conditions when playing the game.
These are later available once you have progressed through the game or have completed certain challenges and afterward, you can purchase them from the Extra Content Shop.
How To Buy Unlockables?
Once you have unlocked an item in the Extra Content Shop, you will be able to purchase it with Challenge Points or CP.
This is obtained by completing challenges in the game and you can later spend them once you enter the Extra Content Shop.
After purchasing an unlockable, it will be available for viewing or use depending on what type of unlockable you have bought.
List of All Unlockables
Below is a list of the more important unlockable items as the rest are just models and concept art that can later be viewed in the game.
Unlocking some of these items will allow you to equip them, which later becomes beneficial when you are playing the game.

These are simply collectible models that you can purchase once you have encountered and defeated certain enemies.
You can purchase them later on when you have finished the chapter you were on and may head to the Extra Content Shop to find them.
These do not have any real purpose aside from being able to view a model of the enemy, creature, or item model.
Similar to Models, the concept art of the game is available for purchase with Challenge Points, which can later be viewed.
These are mostly unlocked by completing the game and going to certain areas while others simply unlock as you progress.
Once purchased, these can be viewed at any time when you check on your bonuses and head to the Concept Art section.
Unlockables are a good way to enjoy the game again once you have the benefits of using them to make Leon more successful through each chapter.
While the others are merely collectibles, they are still worth getting if you do not have anything else left to spend Challenge Points on.
The unlockable Weapons and Unique Accessories are a great addition for those who want to complete the game again and make better progress.
