Resident Evil 4 features a completely new story and an innovative "over-the-shoulder" third person perspective that replaces the fixed camera system of the previous three Resident Evil games.

Special agent Leon Kennedy is on a mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the daughter of the U.S. President, from a sinister cult in a remote rural part of Europe. Leon must fight hordes of violent villagers and mutated monsters on his way to save her.

The Mercenaries is an unlockable minigame in Resident Evil 4. It is unlocked by completing the main game regardless of difficulty. The objective is to kill enemies to earn points before the evacuation chopper arrives in the allotted time.

In this run, Ubercapitalist plays through the Village level of The Mercenaries game mode using Wesker. He obtains the maximum amount of kills and the highest score using multiple weapons and major amount of luck and spawn manipulation. Ubercapitalist has also made a TAS of the Castle map for The Mercenaries.

Improves time waiting for final Ganado to come through door. Replaces several seconds of oscillating the handgun with slower actions beforehand including allowing a plaga to appear, demonstrating thrust punch while ganado on his knee, stutter stepping to final position, and smoother handgun oscillation to final headshot with optimum movie end time.
