How to pick locks in Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village An easy-to-pick lock

To pick locks in Resident Evil Village, players must find lockpicks in the castle and other areas.

The first lockpick that most players will come across is found in the castle. It appears shortly after beating the first sub-boss in this area.

It’s worth noting that lockpicks are destroyed upon use, so players will want to be mindful of which locks they pick. Some of the “an easy-to-pick lock” drawers contain ammo, which is fairly common, while others hold more valuable materials and treasures. Of course, it’s not possible to see what’s inside of a locked drawer or cabinet before it’s opened! Just be prepared to gamble.

The “an easy-to-pick lock” may lead some RE8 players to search the area for a lockpick, but often there will be no lockpicks nearby. players will need to backtrack and revisit the area when they have found a lockpick. This makes it easy to miss out on some loot that is hidden behind locks.

It isn’t required for players to pick every lock in the game to complete Resident Evil Village, so don’t fret too much if the lockpick supply runs out.
