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.
