All Resident Evil 3 safe codes and locker combinations

Exploration is any good RPG’s most significant feature. Players have learned to check every corner of every room for gear, secrets, and Easter eggs. And as players have smartened up, developers have gotten more creative. The Resident Evil 3 remake has plenty of secrets to find and upgrades to unlock. However, players will have to keep their eyes peeled. They’ll have an easy time finding five different safes and lockers around Raccoon City, but they’ll also have to find their combinations. Here is every safe and locker location and their combinations in the Resident Evil 3 remake, along with what you’ll find inside.

Rights and lefts dictate which way the safe dial is being turned to reach the specified number.

Every safe location and combo in Resident Evil 3

Resident Evil 3 Jill and Zombies

Downtown safe — 9 left — 3 right — 7 left

This safe is located across the street from the Pharmacy in the opening Downtown area. The pharmacist, now plagued by the infection, left his journal behind, specifying where you can find the combination to his safe. He makes mention of his Aqua Cure Queen knowing the safe combo. He’s referring to a poster hung up in his Pharmacy. Inside the safe, you’ll find a red dot sight attachment for your pistol. This attachment makes fighting the undead, and eventually Nemesis, much easier.

West office safe — 9 left — 15 right — 7 left

This combo is an Easter egg from Resident Evil 2. Players with an extraordinary memory won’t have to search for this one. However, if you haven’t played the predecessor (or forgot), the combo is on the police station’s ground floor in a report in the safe room. The safe is located in the West office on 1F in the bottom-left of the room. Inside, players will find one of six Hip Pouches scattered around Raccoon City. The Hip Pouch increases Jill and Carlos’ inventory.

Nurse’s Station safe — 9 left — 3 right

For one reason or another, this safe only has a two-digit combination. Perhaps it was re-entered by another party? Someone who was trying to get in at the last moment? Either way, this combo can be found while playing as Carlos in the Hospital’s Operation Room on 1F. Head to the Nurse’s Station on 2F to find the safe in the bottom-right corner of the room. Inside, you’ll find the Duel Magazine upgrade for your assault rifle.

Resident Evil 3 Safe and Locker Codes

Shower Room locker — C.A.P

This locker is located in the police station shower room and is another callback to Resident Evil 2. In case you forgot, you’ll find the code on a whiteboard in the Operators room on 1F. The Shower Room is in the top left of 2F. Inside the locker, you’ll find a flash grenade.

Police station hallway locker — D.C.M

Once again, we have a callback to Resident Evil 2. The locker is on the left end of the hallway on 3F of the police station. If you’re looking to find the code, it’s on a whiteboard in the Safty Deposit Room on 1F. Inside, you’ll find some assault rifle ammo.

How to solve the Castle Sword puzzle in Resident Evil 4 remake
Leon looking at murals of a knight.

The castle section of the Resident Evil 4 remake is one of the most diabolical. Aside from being visually distinct from the previous village area, this location is full of tougher enemies and deadlier traps. Once you've managed to escape from the dungeons and up into the castle proper, you will be blocked by a gate beside some images of a knight in different situations. Something is off about all of them, and one part missing entirely. This is the sword puzzle, but it isn't as straightforward as you might assume looking at it. Here's how to solve the Sword Puzzle and make your way into the Audience Chamber in Resident Evil 4.
How to solve the Castle Sword puzzle

The first thing you'll notice about this puzzle is that there are four murals of the knight, but only three swords to pick up in this room. The last sword is behind another locked gate, but this one you can open. The gate has three animals on it, an eagle, deer, and snake, which correspond to three different plates. As each one is activated, the symbols on the gate will light up to show you're on the right track. The deer can be activated by pulling the chain beside the gate, while the second two are on the other side of the gate to the right and need to be shot.

Resident Evil 4: how to deface Ramon’s portrait
Leon looks at a portrait

Resident Evil 4 has a couple of requests worth taking on to help you trade for some sweet loot, but "The Disgrace of the Salazar Family" is perhaps the most satisfying. The note to start this quirky sidequest can be found hanging right by the gondola at the beginning of Chapter 12, and it asks you to deface the portrait of Ramon Salazar in the throne room of the castle. It's an odd request for a survival horror game, but if we're being frank, the little jerk has it coming. We'll tell you where to find his portrait and how to deface it.
How to find and deface Ramon's portrait
Ramon's portrait is found in the throne room of the castle, which means you'll need to do a bit of backtracking through some areas you've previously visited. You'll also run into a handful of challenging foes as you pass through the areas leading back to the throne room, so be prepared to put up a fight.

When you finally reach the throne room, you'll find Ramon's portrait hanging on the left wall of the room – a much smaller portrait compared to the others found on the back wall. Your first instinct may be to start slashing away at it with your knife or shooting bullets into his smug face, but the way to complete this request is actually a little more fun and juvenile than that.

Resident Evil 4: how to solve the Cave Shrine puzzles
A series of symbols in a circle.

There are a lot more optional -- and mandatory -- moments of exploration available to plyers in the Resident Evil 4 remake. One of the best examples comes in Chapter 4 when you are given the ability to move about the lake freely on your boat. Whether you found it by accident or got stuck while going along the main path, you will eventually have to solve two Cave Shrine puzzles in order to get your hands on the Church Key you need to move the story forward. If you found the altar the key is held on, you are likely at a loss as to where to go or what to do. There aren't a ton of places around the lake you can visit, but you can save a lot of time by letting us navigate you to the correct spots and lead you through these Cave Shrine puzzles in Resident Evil 4.
How to find and solve the Small Cave Shrine

The first location you're going to is at the far northeast end of the lake and is called the Small Cave Shrine. Make your way inside and you will come across a panel with a circle of buttons with unique symbols. Your goal here is to figure out which symbols to press, and in what order, to unlock the way to the key item you need.
