Resident Evil 7: Biohazard – All Chem Fluids, Drugs & Crafting Item Locations

Resident Evil 7 includes more combo items than ever before thanks to the mysterious “Chem Fluids” system, allowing you to create First Aid Meds, ammo, drugs, and even explosives. To help keep stocked up on plenty of Chem Fluid, we’re going to document every single Chem Fluid, crafting component (Solid Fuel, Gunpowder, Supplements, etc) and drug we find in the Baker Estate, including a list of recipes.

There are two types of Chem Fluids, regular and strong, and each allows you to craft totally unique items. Thanks to Chem Fluids, you can improve Herbs, make more bullets for your handgun, or create enhanced super-bullets. There’s a lot of versatility here.

There are a lot of Chem Fluids and component, and we suspect more than a few are randomly generated, but for the most part after two playthroughs on Normal, we can confidently say that most of these locations (even inside crates) remain the same between multiple files. So keep scrolling for all the locations, including a list of recipes.

Chem Fluids, Drugs & Crafting Item Locations

There are 8 total items you can craft in RE7, using a combination of crafting items and Chem Fluids. A versatile material, each type of Chem Fluid can produce four items, depending on how you combine the items.

To add an extra wrinkle to crafting, you can sometimes find special Separating Agent items — by combining these with any item in your inventory, you can break that item down to gain a crafting component and a Chem Fluid. Depending on the item, you might even get a Strong Chem Fluid.

Below, we’re going to describe where to find hidden Chem Fluids, drugs, and crafting items. Herbs aren’t here, but you can find all the herb locations on a separate article here:
