First Area

Mad Village Area 1 Start

Enemies to Defeat 15 (Minimum)
41 (Maximum)
Ability Pickups 2
Time Bonuses 1
Head down the path and make a right. Moroaicas will be at the top, and will spawn both inside and outside the house. Run to the back of the house and get the Ability pickup, then turn around and start killing the enemies. Do not forget to shoot the blue bird perched on top of the house.
Make your way down the path again and turn left at the long archway. Pick up the Time Bonus you immediately come across, and position yourself inside of the long archway again. Shoot at the tiny Moroaicas and the Armored Lycans that come after you.
Once you've eliminated all the enemies here, make your way to the path behind of the house, killing the tiny Moroaicas and the Lycans that meet you. At the small graveyard, you'll see an Ability pickup dead ahead.
Moroaicas will spawn here. Eliminate them, but save some for when the large Moroaica appears. Switch between killing regular Moroaicas and causing damage against the large one until it's dead. Touch the Goal to end this area.

Second Area

Mad Village Area 2 Start

Enemies to Defeat 20 (Minimum)
31 (Maximum)
Ability Pickups 2
Time Bonuses 1
Immediately start off by taking out the Giant that jumps down. Focus fire then on the Moroaicas surround the altar, and then finally take out the Samcas that fly overhead.
Head forwards and towards the bridge – the furthest room on the left will have an Ability pickup. Take out the Lycans and the Soldat Eins that come after you.
Take out the archers as you cross the bridge that are hidden in the rocks facing the bridge.
From there, make your way up to the Ceremony Site, where two Giants will jump down. Quickly eliminate them both, using the spawning Lycans to keep your kill streak alive.
There is an Ability and Time Bonus in this area. Pick them up and touch the Goal to finish this area.

Third Area

Mad Village Area 3

Enemies to Defeat 25 (Minimum)
38 (Maximum)
Ability Pickups 2
Time Bonuses 2
Run down the path where you'll encounter three Soldat Eins positioned on the rock hill, the small bridge, and on the ground. Eliminate them all and head up the rock hill and across the small bridge for an Ability pickup.
Jump down to ground level and take care of the Lycans and Soldat Eins that come after you.
Head up the path towards the Stronghold. There is a Time Bonus here, but Soldat Jets and Samcas will be guarding it. Take out the Samcas and head up, and shoot at the Soldat Jets when you're above them.
You'll have to leave one Samca or one Soldat Jet alive to keep your killstreak alive as you make it to the main gate leading into the Stronghold.
At the very top, eliminate the Samcas and Jet that spawn. Climb up the stairs on the far left for an Ability pickup, and drop back down and push through the main entrance.
Eliminate the Lycans and archers in your way, and enter the main hall where a Time Bonus and Ability pickup are available.
Head up the stairs and enter the Stronghold, where you'll have to take out archers and Soldat Jets as you try and make it to the other side.
Zipline to the other side, where you'll have to fight a few more archers and a Soldat Jet until you can make it to the main gate at the top. After clearing this area of enemies, touch the Goal to end.

Fourth Area

Mad Village Area 4

Enemies to Defeat 18 (Minimum)
55 (Maximum)
Ability Pickups 4
Time Bonuses 1
Head down the path and kill the Lycans. Turn around and kill the Soldat Jet that spawns where you begin.
Continue walking down the path and kill more Lycans. When you reach the village, kill the single Moroaica. Head towards the green smoke – to its left is an Ability pickup. But first, kill the Giant and the Moroaicas along the path with the moving Mold-like trees.
Continue heading down the path where you'll see an Ability pickup to your left. Take it and head deeper into the village until you come across a Time Bonus with green smoke to your left.
Eliminate the Lycans and Armored Lycan that follow you.
Head down into the area with the well and enter the house to your right. Make it out the other end and kill the Samcas above. A Soldat Jet will come down – eliminate it too.
Head down the path until you pass a red barrel. Turn around and wait for the Soldat Jets to fly down. Shoot the barrel and kill them.
Head along the path where you'll encounter an Ability pickup next to a burning house.
Once you get to the village center, make a u-turn going right to pick up an Ability. There is a pig here you must shoot that counts as an enemy.
Kill the remaining Lycans, Soldat Jets, and the single Alfa Varcolac that comes after you. Touch the Goal to end this area.

Similar to the boss fight against Mother Miranda, except this fight has Moroaicas spawning to bother you. Eliminate Mother Miranda first before paying attention to the Moroaicas and the Lycans, Armored Lycan, and Lycan Archers later on.
Once all enemies have been eliminated, touch the Goal to end this area.

Recommended Abilities and Weapons

Recommended Abilities

Lightning Speed.pngLightning Speed Infighter.pngInfighter Out of Reach.pngOut of Reach

Out of all the Abilities that you can get, unlocking and then picking up the Lightning Speed Ability will help far more than what the Agile Ability can do for you, as you have a lot of ground to cover across four of the five available areas for this Stage.

Out of Reach will be useful for you in taking out enemies in the wide areas in this Stage, while the Infighter ability is more useful in the final area where you fight against Mother Miranda.

Recommended Weapons

LEMI - Resident Evil Village.pngLEMI F2 Rifle - Resident Evil Village.pngF2 Rifle
SYG-12 - Resident Evil Village.pngSYG-12

Both the LEMI and the F2 Rifle will keep you company throughout the first four out of five areas you'll have for the Mad Village. Level up the sniper fully and buy out the SYG-12 before the start of the fifth area, where you'll have to fight Mother Miranda face to face along with Moroaicas, Lycans, and Armored Lycans.
