How to improve your score to get SS rank in Resident Evil Village: The Mercenaries
From what we’ve seen so far, perseverance in playing stages can be key to improving your score in The Mercenaries.
However, there are some useful tips that you should keep in mind that should add a few valuable points when it comes to adding up your rank.
- The score will increase by how much Lei you have at the end of the round. Therefore, sell the duke everything you do not need (ie, ammunition for weapons you do not intend to use), and plunder the enemies you kill. There are no treasures in this mode, but higher level enemies discard more Lei.
- Related to the above, if you see blue and yellow spheres Collect them in this area if you can before you accept the enemies. This will add time to the podium and give you better fighting skills.
- Combination they are very valuable. While in the main game you may not want to be overwhelmed by enemies, in Mercenaries mode it can really work in your favor. Avoid enemies until a few are close together, then quickly remove them all and add them to your combo, and thus score.
- Dying does not reset the score, so don’t give up if they kill you. In fact, there is no real punishment for death in the Village Mercenaries regime.

How to unlock the LZ answering machine in Resident Evil Village: The Mercenaries
Defeat all eight mercenary levels of SS Rank or higher to unlock a unique weapon: LZ Answerer.
After unlocking, you get access to this weapon in the game by first purchasing it in the Extra Content Shop (for a great 70,000 CP). It will then be possible to purchase from The Duke for 200 Lei. However, it should be noted that LZ Answerer is only available in the main campaign, although it is unlocked through the Mercenaries mode.
This melee weapon is a fairly obvious reference to Star Wars lightsabers. It’s not very powerful, but it’s not quite a funny weapon. In particular, changing the color of the beam to green will cause Ethan to gain health every time he hits the enemy, which is quite a useful (and unique) ability of a leech.
