The only way to get the Chicago Sweeper in Resident Evil 4 Remake is by completing the game on Professional difficulty. And that’s not all, you will have to ensure that you achieve an A rank and complete the game in under 7 hours. Doing so will ensure that you achieve the Leon “A.” Kennedy challenge and also unlock the Chicago Sweeper.

The Professional difficulty is by no means simple because the enemies will not only be harder to beat but supplies will be scarce too. We recommend that you only choose Professional difficulty once your first playthrough of RE4 Remake is over. Once the New Game+ option is available, you will be able to jump into Professional difficulty with all your upgraded weapons and currencies. This will tremendously help you in achieving an A rank on Professional difficulty.

Once you complete the entire playthrough of RE4 Remake on Professional difficulty, the Chicago Sweeper will be unlocked for you. Now, you will just need to head to the Extra Content Shop. The sub-machine gun will be available to purchase for 1000 CP.
