Resident Evil 2 Remake: All Hip Pouch Locations | Inventory Expansion Guide

Resident Evil 2 Remake solves one of the most annoying aspects of the old-school survival horror genre. Finally, you can expand your inventory. Rarely, you’ll be able to find upgrades that instantly enhance the amount of inventory slots for your current character. There are only six of these inventory upgrade pouches available in the entire game, and some of them are pretty tricky to find.

To give you the biggest inventory possible, here’s where to find all six Hip Pouches. Each pouch gives you +2 inventory, so that’s a total of +12 if you find them all. That’s not half bad, and it makes future speedruns a whole lot easier. Get enough inventory space, and you won’t have to make constant trips back to the inventory box to swap key items. It’s incredibly useful. Learn all the locations with the guide below.
