Resident Evil Village: How to Pick Locks

Resident Evil Village is a Resident Evil game through and through, carrying over gameplay mechanics and elements seen in other entries. However, some of them have been tweaked to better balance the game, making it feel more like your decisions matter in terms of how to use them. Such is the case with lockpicks, and that’s why we’re here to break down how to get lockpicks in Resident Evil Village and when best to use them.

Oh, and don’t worry about potential spoilers. We’ve left the guide absent of anything that might spoil the story or new areas for you.

Picking Locks in Resident Evil Village

As you’re exploring the castle and village in the game, you’ll occasionally come across a few locked drawers that you can’t open with any key items you find in the area. These need to be opened with lockpicks, but it’s worth noting that lockpicks are finite in Resident Evil Village.

If you want to open every locked drawer in the game, you’ll need to get at least eight lockpicks. Once you have one in your inventory, all you need to do is approach a locked drawer, then select the lockpick from your inventory to use it, and you’re good to go.

Listed below are all of the locked drawer locations in Resident Evil Village:
