How to find every Resident Evil Village goat location is only an issue if you really to want get all 20 and tick of the Trophy you receive for doing it. Knowing where they all are will certainly save you time as, while most are not too difficult to find, it can be easy to miss some when there's a lot going on, and some are in areas you can't access once you've left them. So if you miss your chance, it's gone forever. There are also two goats in particular that are really hard to find and your chances or discovering them by chance are all but zero. So this guide to every Resident Evil Village goat in the game will make short of work of the whole thing.
These wobbling animals figures litter the world of Resident Evil Village like the bobbleheads of previous Resident Evil games. You'll know one's near when you can hear the telltale creak. Although hearing one isn't the same as finding it, as some can be tucked away from obvious sight lines. To help you from tearing your hair out chasing any tricky goats, these are all the Resident Evil Village goat locations.
It's worth noting that the final goat contains a bit of a spoiler which we've marked up with a warning. So don't read the details on that one until the end stages of the game when a fairly unmissable event has happened.
Resident Evil Village goats, main map
You'll find the majority of Resident Evil Village goats scattered throughout the main village area, which we'll cover here. However, because of the way the story leads you through the various areas of the game you won't be able to find all of these Resident Evil goats, and will detour through various other locations as you follow the story. We'll mention the points at which you might want to switch to one of the other maps we have here.
Resident Evil Village Goat 1
The first Resident Evil Village goat is inside the small shrine at the Maiden of War square when you first enter the main village area. It's pretty much the intro to the whole 'goat thing'.

When you've escaped Castle Dimitrescu you'll go through a passage that will eventually lead to the the Lone Road (east side of the village). You'll find a staircase leading down - walk all the way down and around until you see a small room; the goat is inside.

Go to Luthier’s house behind the gate with the note that says “locked due to the missing home owner”. The goat is on the lower roof right in front of you, near a smashable crate. In case you’re wondering: you don’t need the key to Luthier’s house for this, you can just break or shoot the padlock on the gate.

Resident Evil Village Goat 10
This Resident Evil village goat is quite devious as it's distant and hard to spot, and during a tense section where you can die quite a bit. When you're using the switches to raise platforms and evade Moreau, you'll be able to see it in the water on a tall pole. When you reach the final switch you need to progress look out across the water behind to you to spot it.
Resident Evil Village Goat 11

Resident Evil Village Heisenberg’s Factory goat 2 and 3
When you're close to to leaving the factory you'll be heading towards the cargo bay. In the room immediately before that area head to the wall directly opposite the door you come in through and crouch down to find a ventilation shaft you can go through. The Resident Evil Village goat will be in the small room at the end.
The third and final Resident Evil Village goat in Heisenberg's Factory is one of the hardest ones to get in the game. Use the lift to travel between B1 and B3 and face the left opening from looking at the Duke. You'll see the goat go past on a girder for less than a second. Grab your shotgun, perfect your timing, and blast it as it flashes past.
You'll find this goat while playing as Chris Redfield. After the cutscene where he throws some explosives on the giant red mutamycete monster turn around and you'll see this area behind you. The final goat is hidden way at the back.
