How to get LZ Answerer Lightsaber in Resident Evil Village

To get the LZ Answerer in Resident Evil Village, you must purchase it from the game’s Extra Content Shop. However, you won’t be able to unlock the lightsaber until you beat the main campaign and complete all Mercenaries levels with an SS rank.

Needless to say, this is a tall order. There are several different requirements that must be met before you can unlock the lightsaber, and each one will take time and effort.

Beat the main campaign

First, you need to complete the main campaign. It doesn’t matter how well you do or how many Wooden Goats you find; you simply need to beat the game. When you do, you’ll unlock the Extra Content shop. There you’ll be able to purchase new in-game content by spending CP, which you’ll earn after completing challenges.

Unlock Mercenaries

One of the biggest draws to the Extra Content Shop is Resident Evil Village’s Mercenary mode. This wave-based action affair has been a series staple for years, and it’s made a return in the latest outing. Of course, you’ll need to purchase Mercenaries for 100 CP before you can start playing.

SS Rank all Mercenaries levels

From there, you’ll need to beat every Mercenaries level while earning at least an SS Rank. This will undoubtedly be the most complicated part of this task. Mercenaries is a lot more fast-paced than the base game, which is already more action-oriented than its early ancestors. Be patient, and remember that you can replay levels as many times as you like.

Unlock and purchase the LZ Answerer

Assuming you’re able to SS Rank each Mercenaries level, your work is almost done. It’s true that successfully completing this requisite will technically unlock the LZ Answerer Lightsaber. However, you still have to pay to get the weapon into your hands. The LZ Answerer costs a whopping 70,000 CP, making it the single most expensive weapon in the entire game.

In short, if you want the best weapon in Resident Evil Village, you’ll need to prove your worth across both the campaign and Mercenaries. The LZ Answerer Lightsaber is only unlocked after beating the story, mastering Mercenaries, and spending an eye-watering 70,000 CP in the Extra Content Shop. If you’re looking for even more OP firepower, here’s how to unlock the explosive Rocket Pistol.
