Unlike most boss fights in Resident Evil 4 remake, the battle against Del Lago comes with a few restrictions. Leon will not be able to use any of his firearms during the fight. As if this wasn’t bad enough, he also won’t be able to use any restorative items to replenish his health. In order to survive this battle, players need to ensure that the boat’s health meter doesn’t reach zero. If it does, Leon will fall into the Lake and Del Lago will eat him.

In order to damage Del Lago, Leon must rely on the harpoons that come with the boat. It is impossible to run out of harpoons during this battle, so players can feel free to throw as many as they like. While being dragged by Del Lago, Leon should unload as many harpoons as he can into the beast’s back, as doing so will deplete a significant portion of its health.

While being dragged by Del Lago, players will also need to steer the boat away from incoming obstacles. Hitting these obstacles will damage the boat and will quickly lead to a game over if the player isn’t careful.

When Del Lago stops dragging Leon’s boat around the Lake, Leon will get an opportunity to throw a harpoon directly into its mouth. Not only will landing a direct hit deal significant damage to the beast, but it will also prevent Del Lago from damaging the boat.

Del Lago will sometimes sink beneath the water during this attack, rendering it invisible. In order to find it again, the player will need to spin the camera around while listening out for its roars until they can spot it emerging. The player will only really have time to throw two harpoons during this attack, so they should make sure they are aiming directly at Del Lago’s mouth before launching one.
