Resident Evil 2 loves to tease you with what you could be using to kill zombies. You start the game relatively weak in terms of weapons, with just a pistol and a knife. But you quickly run into the more powerful guns that need some extra work to unlock. The first of these for Leon is the shotgun, locked behind glass and metal that taunts you. How do you get into this locker? It’s easy. Here’s how to get the shotgun in Resident Evil 2 Remake.
The key to this locker is the Weapons Card, which we discuss some more here. You’ll find it in the Art Room, on the second floor, east side. You will be directed up here later on in the game, so if you haven’t been there, or can’t get to the east side of the building just yet, don’t worry too much. Once you can get through those doors on the second floor of the main hall, the Art Room should be easily accessible.
Head inside, grab the Weapons Card, then go back to the locker room where you sat staring at the shotgun, wondering how to get it. Use the card on the locker and it will open right up with a simple press of the action button. Inside you can get the shotgun and some shells. If you need more, check out this guide.
And that’s how to get the shotgun in Resident Evil 2 Remake.
