Resident Evil 4 – Chapter Par Time Guide


I noticed that no-one on the internet made a guide on how long you should take for each chapter. Being curious and a little helpful, I ended up putting together this VERY ROUGH chapter par time. To see if you’re on track, check the bottom left of the pause screen.

Note: Reloading a save/checkpoint from a death does add time.

Chapter Par Time

Hardcore/professional has half seconds for every other chapter. To make it easier to read, I will be alternating between rounding up and down.

Note: If you are doing Professional, then you can only save the game 15 times on top of doing this under 5:30:00 hours.

  1. Rad. I keep spacing out my playthroughs over months so I don’t burn out and I keep forgetting what my third or fourth Assisted pistol and knife-only run for the wolf tail time needs to be so this helps. I’m 2:30ish near the end of chapter 9. Should be able to still get it though.

  2. you can finish this in 4 hours? I’m five hours in and I’m at Chapter 4. I guess I like to go around every corner for bits and pieces.

    • Yeah the four hour speed run looks very scary. On my very first playthrough it took me 15 hours.
