The Resident Evil 2 Remake is out now and it's one of the best games of the year, however if you're going to get past those zombies - or worse, the sinister Tyrant Mr X - you'll need the Resident Evil 2 Remake Shotgun.
The Shotgun is one of the most useful weapons in the game, but where is the W-870 Shotgun? Or maybe you've spotted it already and now want to know where is the Weapons Locker Key Card? Can Claire get the Shotgun too or is it exclusive to Leon? Let us show you.
Where is the Resident Evil 2 Remake Shotgun and Weapons Locker Key Card?
If you're playing through the game as Leon, you'll be wanting to get the Shotgun as quickly as you can. You'll probably get ammo for it before you get the weapon itself, but you'll spend a lot of time relying on your pistol and knife, and that's not going to cut it (pun not intended).
You may have found the shotgun in the one-shot demo, and you'll quickly find it's in the same place - in the Safety Deposit Room opposite the West Office, on Floor 1 of the RPD. It's right at the back of this room, but it's stashed in a special Weapons Locker and you'll need the Key Card to get it. So where is the Weapons Locker Key Card?
The first thing you'll need is the Spade Key. The good news is that it's really easy to find. From the Safety Deposit Room turn left and left again, towards the window with the zombie hammering down on it - use boards if you've got one, there should be one to the right - along with the Dark Room, which is a Save Zone! Then head all the way upstairs to Floor 3, and right next to the creepy wooden figure on the desk you'll find the Spade Key.
Now you can either carry on exploring (you'll soon be in the Library, where you can cut through into the Main Hall), or head back to the Main Hall through the West Office. Then head up the stairs to the door on the right of the hall, on Floor 2, into the Waiting Room - there's a Safe here if you want to open it. Open the door with the Spade Key, then turn left and into the room on the right - the Art Room.
There's a puzzle here involving the statue and the Red Book, if you grabbed that in the Library on your way here, but for now ignore that - just on the left on a table is the Weapons Locker Key Card. Beware trying to do that statue puzzle first, otherwise you may get a nasty surprise and miss the Key Card!
Head back to the Safety Deposit Room, use the Key Card on the Weapons Locker, and you'll now have the Shotgun and some ammo! Well done!
The good news is that all these item locations are the same for Claire. Now for the bad news: she doesn't get the Shotgun at all in her campaign. Instead, you'll get the Grenade Launcher, which is pretty good in its own right.
