Locked Drawers are one of the categories of locked containers in Resident Evil 4 Remake. Our guide explains how to open drawers and what can be found in them, as well as whether RE4 Remake has the option to use lockpicks to open drawers and other chests.
As you go through the game, you may come across locked drawers. Each discovered drawer is permanently marked on the map. You can't open them by force, and many of them can be opened later in the game.
Try to open as many Locked Drawers as possible before advancing to the next bigger location. For example, open the drawers from the village before moving to the castle. After that, you will no longer be able to return to the village and open the drawers you have missed.
There are no lockpicks in RE4 Remake. To open Locked Drawers, you need Small Keys - they are one of the types of collectibles.
A Small Key can be used to open any drawer, but they are single-use, i.e. they are lost when the container is opened. To open another drawer, you must first get another Small Key.
Loot in drawers
In Locked Drawers, you can find:
- treasures you can sell - they have no other use;
- gems, which can be placed in larger artifacts so you can sell them for more.
