The Resident Evil 2 Remake is out now, and one of the best games of 2019, filled with deadly enemies and cunning puzzles. One of the most difficult puzzles is the Resident Evil 2 Remake Hiding Place photos puzzle. Here's how to solve it.
This puzzle is difficult because you'll need to recognize locations in the game, and there's not much to go on in the Hiding Place photos. We'll show you both Hiding Place locations
Resident Evil 2 Remake Hiding Place Locations
The most important thing to realize is that you cannot solve this puzzle and get the treasure without first having the Hiding Place photos. To get them you'll have to head down into the Sewers. Eventually after a bit of exploring you'll end up in the Work Room on the map point above, and there'll be a Roll of Film here labelled "Hiding Place."
When you have access to the RPD again, head to the Dark Room and develop the photos. You'll get back two photos (see the top of this page) showing what appear to be two cluttered desks. These are two separate Hiding Place locations in two completely different rooms.
It's up to you which location you go to first, since they're about the same distance from each other and the Dark Room. The first Hiding Place location is the S.T.A.R.S. office on the 2nd Floor of the RPD. Go to the desk in the little office immediately on the left, and swing around until the Interact button shows up. You can open the desk and get the reward of Weapon Parts: Lightning Hawk Magnum Red Dot Sight for Leon, or MQ11 High-Capacity magazine for Claire's handgun.
The second Hiding Place is located in the Press Room on the 1st Floor, which you passed when you were first starting the game and just entered the RPD (after opening the shutter). On the back left of the room is a small desk, which you can interact with now to get some much-needed ammo for some of the more powerful weapons in the game - Flamethrower fuel for Leon, Spark Shot cartridges for Claire.
You'll also get the Treasure Hunter achievement for getting both of these locations. Well done you!
