Varcolac Alfa Location Resident Evil 8

The location of the RE8 Varcolac Alfa for the Leader of the Pack challenge is in the Fallow Plot, east of the church in the village. You’ve been here before; it’s the area covered in tall grass that you went through on your way to Luiza’s house in the beginning of the game.

The strategy is simple, but not easy. Basically, you have to bait the monster into the explosions until it gets staggered, and then whip out the grenade launcher or the magnum. Rinse and repeat until the beast is down for good. Mind you, this beast is one of the most powerful creatures in the game aside from the bosses, so tread very lightly.
