Leon has finally managed to find Ashley, but that doesn't mean she's rescued just yet. The Villagers are searching the Church for you, so stay quiet and employ stealth to keep the two of you hidden.

Escape from the Church

As soon as you gain control of Leon, go back to the room Ashley was being held hostage in and shoot the metal container hanging from the ceiling to get a Yellow Diamond. Now return to the main route to the left and interact with the prompt to give Ashley a boost up, who will push the ladder down to you. In the attic, grab the Handgun Ammo, Attachable Mines and Pesetas, then jump out the window in true Leon style.

Head for the Extraction Point

After a call with Hunnigan, you'll be told to head to an extraction point, which is just beyond the Farm area via the Village Square. A lot of Villagers are patrolling the graveyard ahead, so play it safe, especially since you've now got Ashley with you. For this encounter, we suggest having Ashley hang back while you deal with all the Villagers, then call her to your side once it's safe.

You can head to the extraction point straight away if you like, but with Ashley by your side, you are able to access a few new places. Back at the Village Chief's Manor, you can now get into the attic and claim a Clockwork Castellan and a Treasure, while the Village Square has a Gap in the Wall in one of its buildings that you can now climb up to. Consider going to these places first, and pick up the Blue Request Note named A Savage Mutt when you pass the Merchant next to the Town Hall.

When you're ready to move on, pass through the Village Square and the Farm, killing the Villagers and a Brute along the way. If you haven't already, unlock the Wayshrine to the right before crossing the bridge to the extraction point. On the other side, Luis will usher you into a house and it'll be time for a big standoff.

Stand Your Ground

Now, you'll need to do exactly what the objective says: stand your ground. A constant stream of Villagers will pour into the house you're held up in, and you simply need to survive. You don't have to worry about Ashley since she'll hide, but this is a very testing encounter. Board up the windows on the ground floor as and when you can, and just keep on killing enemies.

They'll focus their efforts on the ground floor first, but a ladder will eventually be put in place for Villagers to enter from the second floor. Go up there and push it over as soon as possible to make the fight a bit more manageable. Due to the tight space of the house, Hand Grenades will work very well. Once the three windows downstairs are boarded up, the Villagers will use the ladder to get upstairs. The Brute then follows shortly after. Once it's dead, Ashley will call you and lead you to an escape route, which ends Chapter 5.
