Resident Evil 2 loves tossing random items at you without telling you what to do with them. One of these pops up in the parking garage beneath RPD, where both Claire and Leon will find a car key in a box. Once you have it, you need to know what to do with it though, and more importantly where. Here’s where to use the car key in Resident Evil 2 Remake.
The answer is actually pretty obvious once you think of it. Need to use a car key? Better get near some cars. Basically, this key will unlock a trunk which contains some very useful items. The items change depending on if you’re playing as Claire or Leon, but you need them either way. To use it, just Examine the Car Key and rotate until a prompt appears to press A. Hit it and it will send the unlock command. Now you just need to do this in the right place.
As I said, it’s pretty obvious, just head back to the main parking garage area where all the cars are. The key goes to one of these, so stand just outside the door that leads to the kennels and hit the button. A nearby police car will chime and open its trunk. Afterward you can grab the items within and discard the car key once and for all.
And that’s where to use the car key in Resident Evil 2 Remake.
