How to Get the Three Medallions in Resident Evil 2
The Resident Evil 2 remake is finally out, and it’s a glorious tribute to the original PS1 release all those years ago. Your first major objective in the game is to find the three medallions to leave the police stations, so we’re here to help you out. Here’s how to get the three medallions in Resident Evil 2.
First Medallion: Lion
This one is pretty straightforward to get in Resident Evil 2. After you’ve gotten the officer’s notebook from the east corridor, Marvin will let you know that the medallions are the key to getting out of the station, and wouldn’t you know it, there’s a medallion sitting right there with you in the Main Hall.
From the Main Hall, head up the stairs and you’ll see a lion statue with a dial in front of it. The solution is: lion, leaf, bird.
Second Medallion: Unicorn
This second collectible in Resident Evil 2 requires you to explore the west wing and get to the Library. You can do this easily by entering the west wing through the Reception area, climbing through the window in the Operations Room, then heading up to the third floor and accessing the Library from there.
Head down to the Library’s second floor and open the door to the south (not the one with the Spade lock) to find the Unicorn statue.
The solution is: fish, scorpion, jug.
Third Medallion: Maiden
The final medallion in Resident Evil 2 remake is located in the West Storage Room, which is the room you used to first access the Library. In the corner of the Storage Room, you’ll find some C4. However, activating it requires you to find two other items first.
First, you’ll need the round valve, which is found in the East Office. This location is only accessible after meeting Leon or Claire in the Courtyard. You’ll also need the Cutting Tool, obtained in the Courtyard after that meeting.
Bring the valve to the Shower Room in the West Wing, use it on the pipe, then follow the corridor to the STARS Office. Beware the Licker. You’ll find the Battery in the side room of the STARS Office.
Next, you’ll need to use the Cutting Tool on the chained door in the Operations Room, and you’ll find the Electronic Device. Combine it with the Battery to get the Detonator, then head back up to the West Storage Room to blow up the C4.
You’ll be able to enter the small area with the maiden statue. The solution is: maiden, bow, snake.
With all three medallions in hand, you can now head back to the Main Hall and find a way out of Resident Evil 2’s iconic police station.
On that note, if you’re playing through the game on New Game 2nd Run. The puzzle clues and solutions for all three medallions are different.
