Resident Evil 8 Village Waterwheel Weapon House, or just Waterwheel House, is a key location in the video game developed by Capcom, as it includes the Waterwheel Weapon and 2 additional hidden items you don’t want to miss.

The Resident Evil Village Waterwheel House is found in the southwestern Maiden of War area, but it can’t be reached until you find the Four-Winged Unborn Key.

On your in-game map, you can notice that the Waterwheel Weapon Treasure Chest is found just west of the Red Chimney House we already cleared.

Since this is such an important location, below I’ll tell you how to clear it and where to find all items inside.

How To Get To The Waterwheel Weapon House In Resident Evil 8 Village

In order to reach this house and the Waterwheel Weapon Treasure, you’ll have to deal with the second boss in the game.

This means that you’ll be able to get here after you complete House Beneviento and obtain the Four-Winged Unborn Key.

Once you have it, open the gate south of Duke’s location or the Incomplete Chalice, and follow the road south.

Up on the hill, you’ll see Vasile’s House we already cleared here, and down by the river on the left is the Waterwheel Weapon House.

The Waterwheel House is relatively poor in loot, except for the Waterwheel Weapon, which is quite deadly since it uses Explosive Rounds.

In order to clear this house, make sure you get the following items after you use your Iron Insignia Key to get inside.

Where To Find The Breakable Crate

On the right side, as you enter, you’ll see a smashable crate.

Break it to get a random item from it.

How To Get The Waterwheel Weapon

Now, return to the main room, and on the table, you’ll see a metal box.

Close to it is the Waterwheel Weapon, or the Waterwheel Weapon Treasure if you want.

This is, in fact, the GM 79 in my picture below.

Where To Find The Lockpick

Finally, the last item you need to find inside this house is a Lockpick.

As you can see in my screenshot, it is located on the window near the Waterwheel Weapon (right side).

After you find the last item, the Resident Evil 8 Village Waterwheel Weapon House Search Completed blue marker appears on your map, and you are free to leave the area.

Make sure you head south towards Moreau’s Reservoir next and collect all Windmill items covered here.
