Resident Evil 8 Village has been out for some time now, and it’s one of the best releases of the year so far. CAPCOM has knocked it out of the park with their latest release, and we thought it was an excellent game as well. Ever since its release, mods have been a big part of the experience, similar to previous entries. These aren’t limited to just gameplay changes, but for cosmetics as well. If you want to install the Resident Evil 8 Village Custom Samurai Edge Mod, here is how you can do that.

If you are using a Dualshock 4 controller to play the game, make sure to check out our button prompt mod as well. Most of these mods are fairly easy to install, and if you have been following our coverage for Resident Evil 8 Village, you won’t have any problem installing it.

Resident Evil 8 Village Custom Samurai Edge Mod

The Custom Samurai Edge is a series of iconic weapons that have been part of Resident Evil games for a while now. There are multiple versions of it, and it’s available to use in almost every entry. This is true for Resident Evil Village as well, but fans that want to change the other handguns to this can install this mod.

NexusMods user SilverEzredes has created a mod that can replace either LEMI or the M1911 handgun with the Samurai Edge. To install this, follow the steps below.

Download Fluffly Manager

First, to install most of Resident Evil 8 mods, you will need the Fluffy Manager

  • You can download that from here (you will need to sign-up on NexusMods to download this)
