Further notes

Barry Burton appears in Resident Evil 5's The Mercenaries Reunion and in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D.

In The MercenariesEdit

The Mercenaries ReunionEdit

Barry Burton is a playable character in a version of Resident Evil 5's "The Mercenaries" mode entitled "Mercenaries Reunion". Barry can be obtained by either purchasing Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, or downloading Lost in Nightmares as a DLC. Barry's outfit matches his S.T.A.R.S. uniform.

While not having any fully automatic weapons such as a sub-machine gun or otherwise, Barry's handgun is powerful enough to take most enemies down with 3 or less shots. His magnum is also very effective with one or two shots exploding the Big Man Majini. His rifle is typical: powerful but must be aimed through a scope, which limits peripheral vision.

Barry comes with the following weapons:

  1. The Dragunov SVD Sniper rifle;
  2. Barry's custom Beretta 92F Custom 'Samurai Edge' Handgun (with 30 loaded shots);
  3. A Smith & Wesson Model 29.
Position Attack Strength
Head Headbutt High
Arm (Front) Barry Sandwich Low
Arm (Front) (With Chris or Josh) Lights Out High
Arm (Back) Knee Low
Leg (Front) Burton Boot Medium
Leg (Back) Gun Bash

Instant Death (But Parasites May Appear)

Grounded Miranda Rights Extreme (Head Critical)
Combo Finisher Hurricane Extreme
Grapple Breaker Kidney Punch Extreme

Barry's custom Colt Anaconda will only be used when he does a melee attack named "Gun Bash". Also, when Barry performs the move where he pulls out his custom weapon, entitled "Miranda Rights," he will shout two of his famous lines. They will be either "I have THIS!" or "What IS this?!?". Barry will also say this when he uses a proximity mine. Albeit in a more serious tone. Barry is also the only character in both Mercenaries modes who uses a gun for a melee attack.

Reflecting his raw strength from the games, Barry has extremely powerful melee moves, to make up for a lack of crowd control weapons. He is also the only character who can perform a combo finisher on a Chainsaw Majini or both types of Executioner Majini, if another character had already performed a melee attack on said enemy.

Set up Name Damage Description
Head stun Headbutt Barry grabs the enemy and headbutts them with the side of his head. Unlike most head stun melees this one doesn't throw the enemy away, but they rather fall on the ground beneath Barry. This move usually explodes the Majini's head.
