Resident Evil Village: How to Open the Safe in the Workshop [Resident Evil 8 Guide]

Resident Evil Village is an awesome and atmospheric survival horror game, but it is still filled with a lot of puzzles and riddles to solve. One of those puzzles is finding a code for the locked safe located in the workshop. In this article, you will learn the combination and how to open the safe in the workshop in Resident Evil 8.

How to Open the Safe in the Workshop in RE8

The first thing you need to know is where to look for the said safe. It is located in the Workshop region on the main Village map. You can see the exact picture below.

After walking into the abandoned shack you will see a locked safe in the down left corner of the room. The combination is not very hidden, and all you have to do to learn it is position yourself right in the shack where the safe is located.

You need to go to the little window on the right, and center yourself so you will be able to see different numbers from left to right. That is basically it. You will be able to read the numbers and crack the code.

07 can be seen on the brick wall of another building on the left, then 04 can be seen on the middle frame of the window, and last but not least 08 can be seen on the tarp on the outside of the house.

The safe code contains 6 numbers in the following order: 0, 7, 0, 4, 0, 8. These numbers might be a reference to the games themselves. The 8th game of the series Resident Evil Village is often compared with its atmosphere to Resident Evil 4. However, it is a direct continuation of the story from Resident Evil 7, as well as First Person Perspective gameplay. So this might be a little easter egg to some of the best entries in the Resident Evil Franchise.

The Full Code: 07-04-08.

After You Open the Safe

Then you need to input the code to the locker in this exact order using the buttons written on the bottom of the screen, depending on the platform you are playing. For me, it was D-Pad on a PS5 DualSense controller.

After you open the safe you will be able to get some useful items like a brand new M1911 pistol. It is one of the most common handguns used in any video game. In addition to that, you will also find Jack Handle that will come useful in the other parts of the Village.
