    Don't Sell All Treasures Immediately

    Most of the Treasures you find in Resident Evil Village can immediately be given to Duke, the merchant, in exchange for Lei. Before you do so however it is important that you take the time to check the description associated with them to determine whether you should cash it in or hang onto it. Most of the treasures you find will read 'Valuable', 'Very Valuable', or 'Combinable'. If the treasure is 'Combinable' it indicates that there is another Treasure elsewhere that you can combine with it which will increase it's value significantly, and it is those treasures you should hang onto and sell once they are complete.

    Crafting Recipes

    Although you always have the option to buy weapons and ammunition from Duke's Emporium, it is far better whenever possible to use the materials that can be found all around you to craft it. Crafting in Resident Evil Village is straight forward with the game telling you exactly what the requirements are to craft what you want. Below is a crafting recipe list of the things you can make in the game and what materials are required.

    1 Rifle Ammo x20
    - Herb x1
    - Rusted Scrap x2
    - Metal Scrap x1

    Explosive Rounds x2
    - Gunpowder x1
    - Metal Scrap x1

    - Chem Fluid x1

    Flash Rounds x2
    - Chem Fluid x1
    - Rusted Scrapx1
    - Herb x1

    Search Everywhere

    As you explore the ruined Rommanian countryside in Resident Evil Village you need to keep an eye out for the useful items that are scattered everywhere as it is essential you find them in order to progress the story.

    Whenever you enter a building for the first time it will appear on your map with a reddish tint. This indicates that there is something there you need to find, once you have found everything you need to find in that area it will turn the map blue. Make sure you open cabinets, look in drawers, check the counters, and even scour the ceilings for useful items. If you encounter something that is locked you need to make a note of it and come back later when you have what is needed to open it.

    Shoot the Hanging Birdcages

    In certain areas of Resident Evil Village you will come across birdcages that hang above your head, if you shoot them, so they drop to the floor they will give you a useful item that will help your game progression. The item that it yields as a reward is random and includes Gunpowder for crafting bullets and Lei which you can use to buy upgrades with. There will never be anything of real importance in the birdcages but what you receive is always worth the single bullet you use.

    Collectibles Guide

    There are 145 Collectibles in total in Resident Evil Village, and they are scattered throughout the game. Collectibles break down as follows: 20 Goats, 47 Files, 11 Recipes, 16 Weapons, 22 Customizable Weapon Parts, 10 Outhouses, 19 Castle Windows. All Collectibles are missable due to being locked out of areas if you progress too far, so you need to grab them in chronological order as you go through the game. You will be able to get most of them on your first playthrough, only some Weapons, Customizable Parts, and Recipes require additional playthroughs.

    If you manually save Resident Evil Village as you progress through the game you will be able to reload if you miss something. You can easily check if you have missed something by referring to the Journal where each File has a ..

    Use your Knife to Save Ammo

    Ammunition for your weapons in Resident Evil Village is hard to come by so make sure you use your knife whenever possible, so you don't waste what you have. A swipe of your knife will break most things, and it means you can save your ammunition for taking down werewolves.

    Progress the Story

    When you begin Resident Evil Village there will be plenty of content you will not be able to access straight away, this will generally be in the form of locked doors and locked drawers that require a key to unlock them. These keys and some key items won't become available until much later in the game, so do not get frustrated when you encounter a lock you cannot open. Whenever this happens you simply need to progress with the story and return to the location later once you have found what you need.

    How to Make Money

    Knowing how to make lei, the currency used in Resident Evil Village is important as it allows you to trade for weapons, ammo, upgrades, and crafting recipes. These are all things that will help you to survive, therefore you should make money whenever you have an opportunity.

    Break Things
    When you begin in the game you will be able to find lei by using your knife to smash doors, drawers, cabinets and anything else that you come across that is breakable.

    Kill Monsters
    You can make lei by defeating monsters as some of these creatures drop a Crystal Skull when you kill them which is worth 900 lei when you sell it to The Duke, Resident Evil Village's merchant.

    Crystal Fragments
    You can make money by shooting the glowing w..

    Increase your Inventory

    The Duke is Resident Evil Village's merchant, and it is important that the first dealing you have with him is to increase your inventory. Failing to prioritize this early in the game will result in you missing out on some important story items and powerful weapons later on in the game.

    Run Away

    Early in Resident Evil Village you will encounter enemies that you will find are almost impossible to kill. When this happens you need to run away, so you can stay alive and fight another time when you are more powerful and better equipped to deal with those situations. You will be given plenty of opportunities to fight later in the game.

    Look for the Color Yellow

    Keep an eye out for anything that is the color yellow as you explore the village as this indicates you can either interact with it or use an item there. Keep an eye out for yellow tape which is plastered around boxes as this means you can break them for items and yellow paint which can be found next to objects which can be combined with an item. In most instances this applies to the Well Wheel and the Crank, which both allow you to access new areas and items.

    Unlock the Extra Content Shop

    The Extra Content Shop becomes unlocked in the 'Bonuses' menu after you have completed your first playthrough, and it is here where you can exchange CP for unlocks. These unlocks include The Mercenaries game mode, new weapons, infinite ammo mods for weapons, figurines, and concept art. Each will have a price attached and if you don't have the required CP to purchase what you want you can go to the Challenges tab in the 'Bonuses' menu and complete those to earn more.


    Resident Evil Village FAQ's

    Our Latest Questions

    What is inside wells?
    Accessing the wells in Resident Evil Village is important as they hold scarce items such as ammunition, lock picks, and Treasures that can be sold for Lei. It is crucial that you get these items on a regular basis, so you are able to progress through the game easier.
    How do you access wells?
    In order to do access wells you need to obtain an item called the Well Wheel which is done through a quest which you can undertake after you have beaten Castle Dimitrescu by defeating Alcina Dimitrescu. To get the quest you need to interact with Duke at the Emporium who will tell you to find a house with a red chimney. This will take you to West Old Town where you will be able to find the house just below 'Maiden of War' on the map. When you are inside the house you will see two wooden barrels, and the Well Wheel is lying on top of them, and you will now be able to access any Wells you find.
    How do you defeat Heisenberg?
    Heisenberg is one of the four 'Lords' that serves Lady Miranda. To defeat this boss you need to focus your attack with the machine gun on the red parts of his battle suit as this will stun Heisenberg. If you blast the structures towards Heisenberg using the machine gun you will be able to cancel the upcoming attack of the boss. It is important to remember that your moves will become slower while you are using the machine gun so guarding is more effective than trying to run away. Once the machine gun you have been using is destroyed you will have to use your own weapons to defeat this boss. You will find that explosives are very effective, particularly if you target the stomach area of the boss.
    How do you get Heisenberg's Hammer?
    Heisenberg's Hammer can be obtained by combining Mechanical Part (Cylinder) with Mechanical Part (Shaft). One you have combined these two pieces of Treasure you can sell Heisenberg's Hammer for 45,000 Lei at Dukes Emporium.
    How do you get the Complex Mechanical Heart Treasure?
    When you defeat Sturm, the boss will drop the treasure called 'Complex Mechanical Heart'. You can then sell this Treasure for a high price at Duke's Emporium.
