Resident Evil 2’s Film: “Hiding Place” item leads you on a picture hunt. In this guide, we’ll show you where to find Roll Film, how and where to develop the pictures, and (finally) the locations shown the pictures so you you can get a weapon upgrade and some ammo.

Where to find the Roll Film: “Hiding Place”

In the Sewers, after you get the T-Bar Valve Handle, open the door in the Lower Waterway (both as Claire and as Leon). Take the elevator up in the Workroom Lift room, and you’ll find yourself Workroom.

The Roll Film: “Hiding Place” item is on a table in front of you when you walk in.

Back to the Main Hall

As you explore the Sewers, you’ll find the Sewers Key hanging on a wall in the Lower Waterway. Use that to unlock the door to the Workers’ Break Room in the hallway outside of the Workroom.

Push the cabinet on the wall to reveal a hidden passage. Take that path to its conclusion, and you’ll find yourself in the Hidden Room — the place where you left the Police Station. Use the T-Bar Valve Handle to open the door back into the Main Hall.

Roll Film: “Hiding Place” (Key Item) locations

Now that you’re back in the Police station, there are three places you need to go.

Darkroom

Make your way back to the Darkroom, and use the film in the sink. You’ll get two pictures. Those show the locations of two new items.

Press Room

Make your way back to the Press Room (to the east of the Main Hall). Open the drawer in in a table to the let of the podium with the microphones. As Claire, you’ll get Needle Cartridges x7. As Leon, you’ll get Fuel for your Flamethrower.

STARS Office

Turn left as soon as you enter, and go into the office within the office. Open the drawer in the desk there. As Claire, you’ll receive the High-Capacity Mag (MQ 11), which extends the clip capacity of your SMG to 50 rounds. As Leon, you’ll receive an upgrade for the Magnum.
