Resident Evil 2 Remake: All Hint Film Roll Locations | ‘Treasure Hunter’ Guide

Film rolls return to Resident Evil 2 Remake, but these have been remixed to help you solve some obscure puzzles. One in particular, titled ‘Hiding Place’ will reward you with a very secretive weapon upgrade part — and unlock the ‘Treasure Hunter’ achievement / trophy. There are only a couple film rolls, but each one helps you solve a tricky puzzle. They’re all puzzles that didn’t appear in the old game, either.

The hint film rolls will help you unlock weapon upgrade parts, get a new powerful gun, or just lead you to some extra ammo. They’re all a little twisty, so whether you’re lost and need help finding the clues, or just want a solution to the puzzle itself, we’ve got you covered. The locations in RE2 get pretty stressful, so I don’t blame anyone for giving up when a certain someone keeps reappearing to ruin your day.

Hint Film Rolls are rare items you can find that present solutions to puzzles. The final hint film roll points out an otherwise impossible-to-get item located in the STARS Office. After collecting a hint film roll, travel to the Dark Room in the RPD Building to develop the photo.

  • Hint Film #1: Commemorative Photo
    • Location: 1F Safety Deposit Room – Type [106] into the keypad to unlock the corresponding locker with the hint film inside.
    • Puzzle Solution: Once developed, the hint film shows the book / hand configuration for the statue with the scepter in the 2F Art Room. Combine the Red Book [2F Library] into the statue hand [1F Library] and place it on the statue to get the Scepter, which is used to open the Gem Box [1F Interrogation Room], which contains the STARS Badge you can transform (examine) and place on the PC in the [2F STARS Office] to unlock the Magnum / MQ-11 SMG.
  • Hint Film #2: 3F Locker Photo
    • Location: B1 Firing Range – Unlock the door to the office in the Firing Range after collecting the Diamond Key [B1 Morgue].
    • Puzzle Solution: The photo shows the combination for the dial lock way back in the 3F Stairwell hallway. The combo is [DCM]. It’s just upstairs from the Dark Room.

  • Hint Film #3: Hiding Spot
    • Location: Upper Sewers, Work Room – Once you reach the Work Room, you’ll be able to find the Hiding Spot camera roll in the Sewers. You’ll need to use the T-Bar to return to the Police Station to collect your reward.
    • Puzzle Solution: Develop the photo to see two secret hiding spots in the RPD.
      • Return to the 2F STARS Office, then search the drawer shown by the photo to discover a powerful weapon upgrade part. Leon gets Magnum Red-Dot Sight, and Claire gets an SMG Silencer.
      • The other photo shows a drawer in the 1F Press Room.

Complete the Hiding Spot film roll and you’ll unlock the ‘Treasure Hunter’ achievement / trophy. Happy hunting!
