Like in the original survivor horror game, players can pick up plenty of treasures in the Resident Evil 4 Remake to sell to the enigmatic merchant.
Naturally, certain items found across the zones will range in price, but there are ways to make them even more valuable before it leaves your hands. Some treasure objects will have gemstone slots where you can place colorful jewels to multiply your earnings once sold together.
The catch is that combing different or similar gemstones will give your treasure specific bonuses to increase its selling price, but it can be challenging if you're missing a color or two.
We'll explain all the gemstone bonuses in the Resident Evil 4 Remake so you can decide which you'd like to shoot for to earn better profits.
All 'Resident Evil 4' remake gemstone bonuses explained:
The original game didn't have a formulaic gemstone bonus system like in the remade Resident Evil 4. Because of that, longtime fans expecting a similar survivor horror experience miss out on utilizing this money-gaining feature.
Below is an image showing all the gemstone bonuses in the Resident Evil 4 remake with their proper color combinations and values once sold:
"This can be accessed when you are on the screen to set the stones. Square on PlayStation, so likely X on Xbox," explained one Reddit user.
Something to keep in mind is that some treasures have limited gemstone slots. You won't always be able to go for the Five Colors combo for the highest earning. At times, you may have to settle for a simple three-gemstone combination if the item only has a few open slots.
For instance, the Elegant Mask treasure will have three round holes when you inspect it. The highest yield possible for the piece will be the Trio set for a better return. Treasures gained later will have more slots available to mix and match however you like.
Can you remove gemstones once slotted into a treasure item in the 'Resident Evil 4' remake?
No matter what, you should be able to pull off the gemstones after being slotted into a treasure. Thankfully, you won't lose the jewel, either.
To do this in the Resident Evil 4 Remake, hover over the treasure piece in your inventory and select "Remove gemstones" after clicking on it. The jewel should separate from the item and then could be used elsewhere or saved for better gemstone bonuses.
The Resident Evil 4 Remake is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
