The Resident Evil Village music box puzzle in House Beneviento involves moving cylinders to find the correct order to play a tune. It's not obvious though, especially if you didn't previously find the music box in Ethan Winter's house at the start of the game. Even if you've seen the RE8 music box before, knowing where to move the cylinders, or how to solve it isn't obvious. Unless you want to end up randomly shuffling things around then you might want the Resident Evil Village music box puzzle solution we've got here, which will let you clear the problem without even playing a note. So to save time though and just skip to the answer then we have the music box puzzle solution right here and it's all about the scratches.

Here's the Resident Evil Village music box puzzle solution

The idea of the Resident Evil Village music box puzzle is to rearrange the cylinders to create a recognizable tune. You might have heard it in the Winter's home at the beginning, if you found the music box there and wound it up. However, it's a big ask to remember a tune you heard once a few hours ago and have since been repeatedly savaged by werewolves. While you can solve it by shuffling pieces around until it plays a melody and Ethan stops saying it sounds wrong, there is a much easier way to solve it.

This image above is the correct solution to the Resident Evil Village music box puzzle solution. I've marked some scratches on the cylinders that you can use to put them in their correct place. There are two large prominent scratches on the left and right edges of the music box that only line up with specific cylinders. Find and position those two cylinders first, and then you can use the scratches on those to match up the rest of the puzzle. When you're done you can play the melody and solve the Resident Evil Village music box puzzle.

Your reward for getting the Resident Evil Village music box puzzle solution right will be a pair of tweezers that pops out of a little drawer at the bottom. You can use that to get the film out of the mouth of the doll that started all this. But that's another puzzle altogether. Good luck.
