The Countdown Challenge is one of the Challenges in Resident Evil Village. The challenge is to have 54,321 Lei in your possession at a single point in the story.
If it's your first playthrough of the game, completing the Countdown challenge will prove to be difficult since it's hard to manipulate the prices of the items you can buy or sell from The Duke. The necessary items will not be at your disposal on your first playthrough. Fortunately, if you've successfully unlocked Infinite Ammo for certain guns, this makes things easier to achieve.
Before attempting to get theCountdown Trophy, we highly recommend you make a manual save. This way, you can repeat the process as many times as it takes if you made a miscalculation. This also acts as a safety net, so you don't have to part with your Lei, weapons, or items.
The first objective you want to accomplish is completely using up all your Lei. You can achieve this in different ways; buying First Aid Med from The Duke since its prices go higher with each purchase, or buying guns and upgrading them completely also flushes out Lei.
If you decide to buy items instead of weapons, clear your Inventory if it gets full. Before talking to The Duke, discard sellable items in your Inventory. Doing this ensures that you are not adding more Lei to your purse. The Duke buys any item you discard while doing a transaction.
If you successfully managed to clean out your purse, take note of these particular items. These are your best options at getting the Countdown trophy.
|GM 79||50000 Lei|
|First Aid Med||800 Lei|
|Pipe Bomb||300 Lei|
|Rifle Ammo||7 Lei per bullet|
Sell the GM 79, 5 First Aid Meds, a Pipe Bomb, and 3 Rifle Ammo to get a total of 54,321 Lei.
After getting the Countdown trophy, quit your game and reload the manual save you made before attempting the challenge. All your items and Lei will be back in your possession, but you get to keep the CP you earned for completing the challenge.
