Resident Evil 2 4th Survivor - How to Play as Hunk in Resident Evil 2

Here's how to unlock the Fourth Survivor mode featuring Hunk in Resident Evil 2.

The enigmatic Hunk is back once again in Resident Evil 2, but there's only one way you can go about unlocking him as a playable character. In this Resident Evil 2 Fourth Survivor guide, we'll be walking you through how to unlock the Fourth Survivor in Resident Evil 2 as easily as possible.

How to Unlock Hunk in Resident Evil 2

For those not in the know, Fourth Survivor was a mode announced for Resident Evil 2 well before launch. It stars Hunk, a special operative, whose actual identity remains unknown. Hunk has gained a bit of fame through his limited appearances in the Resident Evil series, and he’s a bit of an enigmatic legend.

But to unlock Fourth Survivor, the mode in which you play as Hunk, you have to complete both Leon and Claire’s campaigns in Resident Evil 2. This means playing a standard (A) version of the campaign as one character, and then starting a '2nd run' playthrough as the other lead character. So if you played as Leon first, you'll then need to complete a 2nd run version of the game as Claire.

Once you’ve completed the main campaign of Resident Evil 2 in the shoes of both Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, you’ll have unlocked Fourth Survivor, the mode starring Hunk.

What is Fourth Survivor in Resident Evil 2?

But what actually is Fourth Survivor? This mode puts Hunk against a series of challenges, with a timer counting down to zero. We haven’t actually got our hands on the mode yet, but as soon as we have, we’ll be expanding upon this section with a full guide on how to beat Fourth Survivor.

Now that we’re all done with this particular guide for Resident Evil 2, you can head over to any of our additional guides on the remake. There’s our Resident Evil 2 magnum guide, or our page on how to find all the chess plug pieces in Resident Evil 2.
