For every boss in Resident Evil Village, it is difficult to beat him within a certain time limit. Most of these challenges are made easier once you unlock the Infinite Ammo Magnum in the CP Shop – the Magnum (and the easy difficulty replay) makes these bosses a breeze in later plays. But there is one boss that all the usual tricks won't work on. We struggled to destroy Lady DImitrescu in less than 2:30, and it's all because of some weird hidden quirk with her boss fight.
None of the other bosses have this quirk. All the others you can just unload with the Magnum and finish very quickly. It is my recommendation to save your CP specifically for this Unlimited Magnum cheat code due to its incredible usefulness. Especially if you have the Magnum automatic pistol. Lady Dimitrescu can be defeated with the same tricks, you just need to do something specific first - she's completely immune to damage at the start of the fight. Here's how to defeat her faster.

To complete the “Lady Killer” challenge, you must defeat Lady Dimitrescu by 2:30 minutes or less. If you're struggling with this, there's a reason - Lady Dimitrescu is invincible until an invisible trigger is activated in her boss fight. At the start of the fight, you will be on a large tower with four corners. There are two arches on two sides of the tower.
- Before you can damage Lady Dimitrescu, you must lead her to the two arcades so that she crush them. When the two arcades are destroyed, it will become vulnerable to damage.
As soon as the fight starts, immediately sprint around the tower and have him destroy the arches. The mutant boss won't take any damage until you do this. Don't even try to shoot him at first – run! When the arches are destroyed, you are free to go crazy. I recommend any Magnum, especially with unlimited ammo unlocked in the CP store.
Arch clearance is the most critical point of this challenge. Knowing that, the rest should be a breeze for any player returning for the time limit challenges. It's a great way to earn some extra CP.
