The Resident Evil Village bells are part of a puzzle in the Atelier in Castle Dimitrescu. This room has five bells you need to find and shoot to make chime, before you can continue with the game. While three are pretty obvious, there's a couple that can be tricky to find if you don't spot them straight away. 

Making all five Resident Evil Village bells chime is an essential part of the game, and you won't be able to leave the Atelier in Castle Dimitrescu and move on with the story until you do. Solving the Resident Evil Village five bells puzzle is relatively straightforward in theory – find and shoot five Resident Evil bells to ring them all. However, as we mentioned a couple are well hidden and if you don't seem them straight away you'll likely miss them for ages. So if you are struggling with this Resident Evil Village puzzle, we we can show you where to find all the Resident Evil Village bells and how to make them chime. 

How to solve the Resident Evil Village Bell puzzle in the Atelier

See the small note on the painting in the middle of the Atelier? It says: “Let the five bells of this chamber ring out”, and it’s the only hint you’ll get. It’s also a bit misleading though, as you must only make the five bells ring. There’s no need to let them ‘ring out’ (which, in fact, they won’t). After finding and hitting one, a small flame will start burning just above the bell. Here's where to find them all:

You may have already spotted this one, as it’s fairly easy to find. Just look to your left while standing in front of the painting in the middle of the room, and you can see it besides the white bust. There’s no need to use a bullet; you can easily reach it with the knife.

Look at the opening in the wall behind the painting in the Atelier. Between the cogs, you’ll see a large swinging bell. The only way to hit it is with a bullet, so it’s time to draw your handgun. Make sure you get the timing right; if standing close by, there’ll be less chance of wasting a bullet.

Now, turn your back to the cogs and the swinging bell. On the other side of the Atelier, you’ll see a cabinet with a tiny bell on top. You’ll need another handgun bullet to make it swing.

If you look up, you’ll notice a chandelier hanging from the ceiling. The fourth bell is on top of it, but you can’t see it from here. Walk up the wooden stairs, and you can just see the top. If you miss it but hit the chandelier, it will start to swing and you can easily hit the bell again.

That leaves the fifth and final bell, which you can hit from the same position on top of the wooden staircase. You can see a window from here; the bell is outside. It’s fairly big, and can easily be shot with your handgun.

What happens after the Resident Evil Village bell puzzle is solved?

When the five bells are all ringing, you can proceed to the next area of Castle Dimitrescu. The large portrait on the wall swings open, and you’re free to go through. We won’t tell you what awaits you next… but good luck up there!
