How to beat the giant boss in Quarry in Resident Evil 4

Here is our giant boss strategy in Quarry to beat The Giant:

Preparing for the El Gigante fight

For the giant fight in the Quarry, we recommend bringing the TMP weapon. You can buy it from the merchant for 10,000 pesetas in standard difficulty. It’s not necessary to defeat The Giant, but it will make your battle much easier. Grenades are also great for dealing quick damage, but they’re not essential if you’d rather save them for the next fight.

Another important thing you need to do to prepare for the giant boss fight in Quarry is to free the dog from the bear trap outside the Village Chief’s Manor. It will help you during the fight to act as a useful distraction and will even cause the giant to fall at one point, leaving it open to an easy attack.

Our last recommendation to prepare is to go fishing in the lake or fish farm, collect the eggs that the chickens lay in the small corner on the east side of the lake and stab any snakes you see in the fish farm. These are all essentially free health items.

Just don’t use the golden goose egg unless you’re really struggling! You need it for the Egg Hunt request, but there is a chance to get another one later in the game.

Fighting strategy against El Gigante

You can collect all the items in the two small wooden houses at the beginning of the fight or during it while running away from the giant. There is ammo and health items here, but what’s in the boxes and barrels is random.

The rest of the fight is pretty straightforward, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy! You have to damage The Giant enough until the parasite comes out of his back, then damage the parasite until the giant falls to the ground. Run and press the message when the giant is knocked down to stab the parasite.

The Giant will get back up after you stab him, or if you don’t get to him in time, and you will start this sequence again until The Giant dies. You don’t have to target the parasite when he appears, but hitting him will cause more damage to The Giant.

The Giant will also lift the roofs of houses and try to throw them at you sometimes, so be sure to run towards the giant’s feet when this happens to avoid getting hit.

The dog will come and help you after a while if you freed him, and when the scene where the dog bites the giant’s foot plays, stay close to the giant as he will soon fall to the ground after chasing the dog, leaving him open. . so you can attack the parasite.

We recommend using the TMP weapon on the parasite on The Giant’s back. It deals a lot of damage in a short amount of time, making it perfect for attacking the parasite when the giant stops moving.

If you have a lot of ammo, the TMP is also great for damaging the giant and making the parasite come out, but only if you have a lot of ammo. Otherwise, we managed just fine using the shotgun while running between his legs and the Red9 pistol at greater range.

Once you kill The Giant, he will drop a Yellow Diamond and you can continue your journey back to the church.

Our Resident Evil 4 walkthrough can help you through the village with guides on the Big and Little Cave Shrine puzzle solutions, the Church dial puzzle, and the Del Lago, El Gigante, and Mendez bosses. When you reach the castle, you’ll need to tackle the correct timing puzzles of the Treasure Sword, the Four Slotted Wall, the Dining Room Bell, and the Grandfather Clock, along with the Garrador Dungeon, Two Giants, and Ramon Salazar’s bosses. The island is next, and there are still puzzles with calibration puzzles, keycard locations, and a hidden wrench, along with final bosses Krauser and Sadler.

Fight El Gigante in Hardcore or Professional strategy

Everything we previously recommended for facing The Giant on Standard difficulty applies to fighting the giant on Extreme and Professional, except for a few modifications:

  • Make sure to create a manual save right before the fight if you are playing on Professional, as there is no auto-save.
  • If you can’t get a good angle on the parasite, shoot The Giant in the face.
  • Grenades are more helpful, but you may want to save them for the next fight.
  • The giant is much more aggressive and gets up faster when knocked down, so stay close when you see him fall.

Stay close before the giant falls for a chance to stab him.

Except for the dog, of course, the TMP is your best friend during the giant fight in Hardcore or Professional. You can do it without the TMP, since we had to fight the giant in Professional with the rifle the first time, so it’s doable, but speaking from our poorly planned experience, it’s much harder.

Good luck facing The Giant in Quarry!
