Resident Evil Village’s “Find the Angels’ Masks: 2/4” objective takes you through the Opera Hall, Library, and Hall of Joy areas where you’ll find RE8’s Flower Swords Ball key item, Iron Insignia Key (finally), crystal torso, and the Mask of Joy key item.

In this Resident Evil 8 walkthrough, we’ll help you collect every item — like ammo, lei, rusted scrap, herbs, crystal fragments, and more — and find every key item with our maps and screenshots.


Table of contents


Find the four angel masks: 2/4

From the Merchant’s Room, head east and back into the Courtyard.

If you run into Alcina, do your best to dodge around her. Sprint or fight your way to the door on the north side of the Courtyard and use the Dimitrescu Key (while dealing with vampires). In the stairwell, grab the Castle Map (Annex) from the corner.

Take the stairs up. At the top, turn right and smash the cabinet for some gunpowder. Cross the hall to the table for handgun ammo and the Grand Chambermaid’s Notice file.

To the right, there’s another Iron Insignia Key door, but this one has a note:

The piano hides the way to open the door.

Head through the door on the left into the Opera Hall.

Opera Hall

On the second floor, cross to the east side of the Opera Hall and read the Further Observations file.

Turn around and look at the ceiling directly over the flower arrangement to see a crystal fragment on the ceiling. Shoot it down.

In the main room of the Opera Hall, take a left and follow the balcony to the room to the north. Deal with the vampire, and then grab the Flower Swords Ball key item.

Head around to the right (east) side to find another vampire and an easy-to-pick lock. Take the stairs down.

At the bottom, U-turn right to find a vase with shotgun ammo.

Directly across from where you enter, there’s some gunpowder on a chair. Head left for some rusted scrap in the fireplace and an Insect Observations Journal file on a table nearby. Continue to the door in the southwest to unlock it.

Head back to the piano and examine it.

Play the notes in the order they’re shown to retrieve the Iron Insignia Key (finally).

Library

Head back upstairs and use the Iron Insignia Key to open the door to the Library.

You’ll immediately get attacked by another of Alcina’s daughters. Sprint across the room and slightly to the right. There’s a lever on a pillar to open the skylight above the center of the room.

Wait for her to chase you, and throw the switch. Unload some shots at her while she complains.

She’ll run to the east side of the room behind a bookcase to close the skylight again. Wait by the lever until she comes back.

Kite her back into the middle and throw the lever again. Pick up her crystal torso.

Once it’s safe, loot the room:

  • There’s a vase in the southwest corner with handgun ammo
  • More handgun ammo in a drawer just left of that vase
  • Even more handgun ammo on the southernmost bookshelf
  • And some shotgun ammo in the northeast

Exit through the doors to the west.

Hall of Joy

In the Hall of Joy, grab the Mask of Joy from the statue. Turn around and unlock the door to the Main Hall’s second floor.

Go through, and take a right to find a vase with some gunpowder.

Make your way back to the Hall of the Four and place the Mask of Joy on the back right bust.

Head into the Merchant’s Room to save and shop.
