The Resident Evil Village Armory available on the second floor (2F) of Castle Dimitrescu, is quite easy to navigate once you defeat Dimitrescu’s Daughter; however, some items can be missed.
As such, below you can see all Resident Evil Village Castle Armory items locations, required to turn this area blue on your map.
Resident Evil Village Castle Armory Items (Search Completed)
Before we begin, remember that you’ll reach this section of the castle through the western Hall of Pleasure hole.
If you did not explore that area, don’t worry because you’ll return there in a couple of minutes.
Now, the moment you enter the Armory, your first objective is to deal with the boss.
To do so, use a Pipe Bomb on the breakable wall. Once you are done with her you’ll want to get the following items.
Crystal Torso (Treasure)
The Crystal Torso is the first because it’s dropped by Dimitrescu’s Daughter.
Get it because you can sell it to Duke.
Pipe Bomb & Lockpick
Now, if you open your map, you’ll want to check the northwestern corner of the room.
Or the right side while facing the chimney with an Animal Skull above.
On the table pictured below, there are two useful items: a Pipe Bomb and a Lockpick.
Mounted Animal Skull (Key Item)
Next focus on the Mounted Animal Skull above the chimney in the Armory.
After you pick it up, take a closer look at it via the inventory.
Rotate the skull, then remove the screw on the back to receive the Animal Skull.
If you remember from the Castle Dimitrescu Collectibles Guide, this item must be placed on the statue in the Hall of Pleasure after you get the mask.
Shotgun & Handgun Ammo
Now, as you exit the Armory, on the right side while facing the door there are two barrels.
On one of them, you’ll find some Shotgun Ammo, while on the other one next to it, some Handgun Ammo. Or a crate you must break.
Once you get the last two items above, the Armory Search Completed blue marker should appear on your map; however, you also need to clear the corridor between this room and the Hall of Pleasure.
Rusted Scrap (Crafting Material)
When you exit the Armory follow the corridor towards the Hall of Pleasure, and while standing near the hole in the wall, look to the right.
You can see a window and next to it on a small shelf some Rusted Scrap.
Grab it and then you’ll clear the Armory hallway as well. Now, focus on the Hall of Pleasure because here you’ll need to find a very tricky Crystal Fragment.
Resident Evil 8 Village Forbidden Woods Items: How To Clear & Get Search Completed
Resident Evil 8 Village Forbidden Woods is the first area you’ll need to cross when you travel towards the Stronghold in the video game developed by Capcom, and although there are no treasures or collectibles here, you’ll have to fully explore it for a handful of items you may need for what’s to come.
Even though Resident Evil Village Forbidden Woods is one of those sections that doesn’t feature a Search Completed objective if you use the following items’ locations guide you’ll end up entering the Stronghold more than prepared.
So let’s see where to find all hidden items in The Forbidden Woods.
How To Get To Forbidden Woods In Resident Evil 8 Village
To get to Forbidden Woods you’ll need the Six-Winged Unborn Key from the Reservoir.
Since that area is story related; it means that first, you have to kill Moreau; then on your way out, you’ll find the Six-Winged Unborn Key inside his chamber.
Which is in the mine under the first Mill, as you may remember from the previous guide.
With the Six-Winged Unborn Key in your inventory, you’ll want to open the Six-Winged Unborn Gate north of the church, then simply follow the path ahead.
Before doing that; however, make sure you find all items in Otto’s Mill.
You can also return to Otto’s Mill after the Stronghold but you most likely want to get the Cooking Ingredients from the Mill and finish cooking all recipes.
When you are ready follow the path ahead and you’ll enter The Forbidden Woods.
Resident Evil 8 Village Forbidden Woods Items Locations
Before starting the guide it’s worth outlining that in this section, there are multiple enemies you’ll have to face.
As such, to get everything in one run, make sure you deal with them first, and only after you clear the area, focus on the items or the loot you have to collect.
Obviously to make things easier, try to follow the order below as you will move from one item to another.
As soon as you enter the Forbidden Woods you’ll see a wooden bridge in front of you.
Hug the left side of the mountain, and without going up the hill, you’ll find a bent tree.
Get the Herb nearby.
Now, cross to the other side and after you deal with the Lycans, look for a broken cart.
It is opposed to the Herb below but on the southern edge of the map.
Inside the cart, there is some Rusted Scrap waiting for you.
Breakable Crate #1
Next, keep following the linear path and in the next area, you’ll have to deal with two archers.
Once you do that check the ruins in the middle for a Breakable Crate.
Breakable Crate #2
From your current location, move around the ruins and go right.
On the southern edge of the map, you’ll see the second crate.
Basically is at the bottom of the stone where one of the archers spawned.
Breakable Crate #3, #4 & Mine
Several steps away from the previous crate, the moment you enter the actual ruins, you’ll see an explosive barrel on the ground floor.
In front of it, there are three items. Two of them are crates and the third one is a Mine.
Don’t miss these.
Now that you have cleared the ground floor, you’ll need to follow the ramp on the right side of the ruins, to the second floor.
Make sure you do this and stay alert.
Your search continues on the second floor where you can find another explosive barrel, a gate you need to activate, and two ladders.
Following the two ladders (left and right side of the gate) will lead you to a third floor. On each side of the gate, you’ll find a lever, so there are two of them you have to activate.
As soon as you get to the second floor, head to the other side (north) and look around the corner for a small alcove (pictured).
Ge the Shotgun Ammo from it.
Breakable Crate #5
Next, you’ll want to remain on the same floor and check the left side of the gate you are about to open.
In the dark corner, you will find this crate.
Sniper Rifle Ammo
Finally, follow the stairs above the crate you just found and when you see the lever you have to pull turn right.
On the balcony sits a box with Sniper Rifle Ammo.
Pull the lever now, then once you deal with the Lycans head back to the floor below.
Breakable Crate #6 & Handgun Ammo
Once you get back to the previous floor look for a barrel and a crate in the central area.
They should be on the right side while facing the gate, even though during the fight the crate might get destroyed.
Breakable Crate #7
Finally, there is one last box that can be found here.
It is located on the third floor but this time close to the right lever.
Once you climb the yellow ladder, look for it in the alcove just around the corner.
After you get all these items and pull the second lever, the gate to the Stronghold opens up and you are free to move to the next area because you have found all items in the Resident Evil 8 Village Forbidden Woods area.
Resident Evil 8 Village Otto’s Mill Items: How To Clear & Get Search Completed
Resident Evil 8 Village Otto’s Mill is a landmark that is quite rich in hidden items, cooking ingredients, and treasures, thus you should explore it while playing the video game developed by Capcom, on your way towards the Stronghold.
Since Resident Evil Village Otto’s Mill items are required to get the Search Completed objective on your in-game map, knowing where to find all of them is mandatory, thus throughout the following guide, I’ll outline every single item you can get in this imposing structure as well as its surroundings.
This area should not be missed especially because without the cooking ingredients inside you won’t be able to cook all recipes and there is also a file collectible you need to read.
How To Get To Otto’s Mill In Resident Evil 8 Village
To get to Otto’s Mill, you have to obtain the Six-Winged Unborn Key from the Reservoir.
That room; however, can’t be reached unless you deal with Moreau, or the third boss in the game, so you’ll get the said key on your way back to the Village.
Now, after you get the key, your next destination is the Stronghold behind the Six-Winged Unborn Gate north of the Church.
Just as a side note, when traveling towards the said gate, make sure you clear the Church following this guide.
Once you open the Six-Winged Unborn Gate, stick to the main path then head north (left) to enter the area known as Otto’s Mill.
Resident Evil 8 Village Otto’s Mill Items Locations
As usual, in order to make this Resident Evil 8 Village guide as helpful as possible, we will approach the items in Otto’s Mill in a specific order.
This means that we will deal with the area outside Otto’s Mill first; then head inside the actual building and clear it for the Search Completed objective.
Goat of Warding
The moment you get to the clearing where Otto’s Mill is found you’ll see a river.
Get into the water, then turn right, and under the mill on the left side you’ll see an altar with a Goat of Warding.
Make sure you destroy it.
Breakable Crate #1
Now, retrace your steps back to the river.
Cross it towards the locked gate on the other side collecting the random item in the Breakable Crate under the shack (right side).
Once you get the previous crate, shoot the locker on the gate.
When you open it, you’ll see a pig running around. Kill it yo get 2 Meat.
Breakable Crate #2 & 2 Mines
Also in this courtyard, you can find another Breakable Crate and 2 Mines.
They are sitting under another shack (pictured) where some wood is stored. Look for it in the northern section.
After you collect the previous items, just turn around to spot some sort of a device.
It looks like an engine and inside you can spot a Crystal Fragment.
Grab it so you can sell it to Duke.
Awesome job! Now you are done with the courtyard in Otto’s Mill, so follow the ramp behind the house and get inside.
The first two corridors inside the mill are linear and there are no items to be found.
Your search continues when you enter the actual mill via the door on the right.
Immediately after you get inside, turn left and go around the large saw. On the right side, you’ll find a box with Shotgun Ammo.
After you get the ammo, you may want to deal with the guy in front of you.
He is busy but you’ll get his attention.
That’s the only way to advance, and from him, you’ll get the Giant Crystal Axe, a treasure you can sell to our friendly Duke.
After you clear the area, close to the same saw where you found the ammo box above, but this time on a barrel; you’ll find some Handgun Ammo.
Get it then turn right.
Sniper Rifle Ammo
Close to the previous location and also left from the door with three lockers, you’ll see some stored wood.
Go around it and get the box with the Sniper Rifle Ammo pictured below.
Breakable Crate #3
Also on the ground floor, but this time on the right side while facing the door with the lockers, you’ll see a table.
On it, you can spot a Breakable Crate. This is the third in Otto’s Mill.
Breakable Crate #4 & 5
Next, follow the stairs to the second floor. There are 2 crates here, although if you shot the explosive barrel on the ground floor, one of them is destroyed.
Regardless, in the picture below you can see both items. One is on the left side as you climb the stairs (in the corner of the platform).
The other one is in the crate on the other side.
They are pretty easy to spot.
After you get the two items above, this room is fully searched, so head to the ground floor and shoot the three lockers on the door.
Herb, Meat & Poultry
The moment you enter the next room, you’ll see the real treasure in this mill.
On the right side (on the white cupboard) is a Herb, and on the shelf nearby you’ll find 2 Meat and 1 Poultry.
Don’t leave this room without them.
Fish, Meat, Metal Scrap & Ernest’s Diary Collectible
In the next room, there are even more items you can collect.
Start with the Metal Scrap in the left corner of the room, as you enter from the previous one.
Then, get the Meat and the Fish from the table. Finally read Ernest’s Diary also on a smaller table nearby.
Cannibal’s Plunder Treasure Chest
Now, move through the next door, and down the hall, you’ll see the Cannibal’s Plunder Treasure Chest.
Is impossible to miss, and doesn’t require a key.
Inside this chest, you’ll find Father Nichola’s Angel Treasure you can sell to Duke for quite some money.
Breakable Crate #6, #7 & Gunpowder
The last three items in Otto’s Mill can be found on your way out.
Simply investigate the shelf on the left side, just before unlocking the door in the mill, from the inside.
Now you are free to exit the building and continue your journey, and if you check your map you’ll see that the Resident Evil 8 Village Otto’s Mill Search Completed blue marker appeared, so you did not miss a single item.
The next area where you’ll find a lot of items is the Forbidden Woods covered here.
