Resident Evil 4 Remake Merchant Requests

Resident Evil 4 Remake Merchant Requests.

The Resident Evil 4 Remake Merchant Requests are special side quests players can complete in the game. These side quests appear in almost every chapter and task the player with completing specific objectives. To learn more about these requests, see our Merchant Requests guide below.

What are Merchant Requests

Merchant Requests appear in-game as Blue Note Requests. These documents are usually located near the Merchant, but some are in more secluded locations. When a note is picked up and read it reveals details of a side quest that can be completed for the Merchant. Usually that side quest is completed in the chapter you are in, but some are completed over a couple of chapters.

You don’t actually have to pick up the Blue Notes you find. You can still complete the Merchant Request if you know what you need to do. For a first playthrough it is wise to pick them up so you know what to do and where to do it.

Merchant Requests Guides & Details

There are 19 Merchant Requests for players to complete across the game’s 16 Chapters. Many of the requests are the same type, but in a new location. Requests details (including completion status) are under Files > Requests.

What are the Merchant Requests Rewards

Completing Merchant Requests earns you a special currency called Spinel. Spinel is used to Trade (not buy) with the Merchant. Items you Trade for are more rare than items you straight up buy. Many of the items available are only available through trading which makes doing Merchant Requests a good way to get enough to trade for everything.

Additionally there is a trophy/achievement awarded for completing all 19 Merchant Requests in the game. This trophy/achievement is called Jack of All Trades.
