There are multiple guns you can use in Resident Evil 4 Remake, and you don’t want to carry two at once. These weapons consume the same ammo and if you run out of ammo for one gun, both will not work and will take up cache space. It’s better to choose one over the other, and one of the first choices you’ll have to make is between the SG-09 R pistol or the Punisher. Should Punisher or SG-09 be used in the Resident Evil 4 remake?

Is Punisher pistol or SG-09 R better in Resident Evil 4 remake?

The SG-09 R pistol is your starting weapon in the game. You will acquire it at the start of your campaign and it is a reliable weapon to carry with you until the end of the game. It has a decent amount of magazines and good power, but a slow rate of fire. You can equip this weapon with a laser sight to upgrade it, but that also takes up space in your cache, which might already seem tight.

The Punisher is a bit more rewarding. It already starts with a better base magazine than the SG-09, and has a bit more accuracy without upgrading, as well as a higher rate of fire. It also comes with piercing power, which means that when fighting more heavily armored enemies later in the game, you may find yourself dealing more damage to them instead of relying on your other weapons, which require more. of ammunition. Additionally, the Punisher can also be used with a laser sight, similar to the SG-09.

Although the SG-09 is your starting weapon in the Resident Evil 4 Remake, we highly recommend the Punisher as a replacement. When you can buy it from the merchant, it’s a much better option, and you can upgrade it significantly to gain additional benefits throughout your game. Both weapons are solid handgun options, but the Punisher outperforms the SG-09 in almost every way.
