The Red9 handgun is a favorite of Resident Evil 4 fans, so it makes sense it would return in the remake. It’s the most powerful handgun — not magnum — the game in terms of pure damage output. With that in mind, you’ll want to know where to find its location in the RE4 remake, as well as the stock.

Combining the gun with the Red9 stock means you’ll have a stable, high-damage weapon with a large clip as your primary Ganado defense. So where can you find the Red9 in the Resident Evil 4 remake?

Unlike a vast majority of the weapons you’ll get in the Resident Evil 4 remake, the Red9 handgun cannot be purchased from the Merchant. You’ll need to find this gun hiding in Chapter 4.

The most convenient time to pick up Red9 is also the first time it appears in Chapter 4. 

In Chapter 4, you’ll have access to a boat to cross the lake in a more exploration-heavy segment of the game. When you’re out on the open water, head to the middle of the lake, where you’ll find a small shipwreck. You can pull up to it and dock your boat to hop aboard. 

From here, go inside the boat’s control room, where you’ll see a treasure. Take or ignore this treasure, and go around to the front of the boat and make a quick turn to see a special ornamental blue treasure case.

Open the treasure case to find the Red9 handgun inside. Make sure you have room in your inventory or you’ll have to shift some items around to fit this weapon in your case.
