How to Increase Maximum Health in Resident Evil 4 Remake

The Resident Evil 4 Remake lets you increase your maximum health to better fight against the horrors Leon faces as he tries to save the president’s daughter. While Leon is already a tough cookie capable of parrying a chainsaw with a knife, he’s still only human and can be put down in a few shots. Let’s teach you how to increase his maximum health so he can tank a bit more.

How to increase Maximum Health in Resident Evil 4 Remake?

Mix Yellow Herbs with others in order to create a recovery item that increases Leon’s maximum health. You can combine it with any other herb in the game to make a health increasing vial but it can’t be used on its own.

There are herbs that can be found in the Resident Evil 4 Remake that have special properties. Yellow Herbs have unique properties that will increase maximum health. Though much like the Red Herb, it needs to be combined with any other herb before it can be used.

Keep in mind that Leon can only increase his maximum health a finite number of times. Once you’ve found and used enough Yellow Herbs, they’ll essentially become useless. Instead sell them to the Merchant for currency rather than letting them clog your inventory.

Yellow Herb Mixes

Here are the results for each mix you do with the Yellow Herb:

  • Green + Yellow Herb: Restore modest health and increase maximum health
  • Red + Yellow Herb: Increase maximum health
  • Two Greens + Yellow Herb: Restore plenty of health and increase maximum health
  • Green + Red + Yellow Herb: Fully restores health and increases maximum health

Any herb mix you do cannot be refunded so be sure to commit to it. We recommend mixing yellow herbs with just green ones in order to save other herbs unless you really need to increase your health and restore it at the same time.

That’s how to increase maximum health in Resident Evil Remake. We hope this guide was useful to you.
