Knowing where to find Resident Evil Village lockpicks and easy-to-pick locks is vital if you want to stock up on essentials like ammo and maybe even weapon upgrades. These lockpicks and locks are rarely in the same place, and often the challenge is remembering where one was when you find the other. In an open map where you can backtrack freely, that's easier said than done. However, if you want to find more, if not all of the Resident Evil Village lockpicks and locks to get at the valuables inside, we can help.
So, to make doubly sure you don't miss any Resident Evil Village lockpicks or the easy to pick locks they open, we have both lockpick location maps and easy-to-pick lock maps. By using them you should find lots of ammo, treasure and more to help you get through the game. More importantly, we'll also show you what's behind those locks, so you don't waste a lockpick getting something you don't want or need.
Let's explore the Resident Evil Village lockpicks and easy-to-pick lock locations!
There are ‘easy to pick locks’, scattered all over the Resident Evil Village map that can only be opened with Resident Evil Village lockpicks. There’s no minigame involved here, you simply examine an easy to pick lock and, if you have a lockpick, it'll open your inventory where you can select it and to pop the lock open. The lockpick will be used in the process which is why you'll always be looking for more. It will take a while before you get your first lockpick, so don’t worry if you can’t open the first few easy to pick locks you come across.
These simple locks are usually found on drawers, lockers, or cupboards. Once you find one, it will remain visible on the map until you open it.
