As you make your way through the police station in Resident Evil 2, you’ll discover various locked doors that require specific keys in order to be opened. These keys can be found hidden throughout the police station, though certain ones can only be found by a specific character. Below, we’ll go over all the key locations in Resident Evil 2, including where to find the spade, diamond, heart, and club keys.
Where to Find All Keys in Resident Evil 2
Spade Key Location
The spade key can be found by either Leon or Claire in Resident Evil 2. To find the spade key, head toward the West Storage Room on the third floor (3F). Go toward the locker at the end of the hall and turn into the adjacent room to find the spade key on top the desk beside a statuette.
Diamond Key Location
Like the spade key, the diamond key in Resident Evil 2 can also be found by either Claire or Leon. Before you can search for the diamond key, you must first obtain all three goddess statue medallions to reach the underground area. The diamond key is located within the morgue beneath the police station. Once you have the medallions, make your way down to the morgue and open the drawers. The diamond key will be on one of the zombie corpses.
Heart Key Location (Claire)
The heart key is relatively easy to find in Resident Evil 2. However, you must be playing as Claire in order to find the key. The heart key found inside the chief’s office in the police station. You can find the heart key once Claire comes up the elevator from the parking lot. The heart key is inside the Lovers Relief frame on a desk in the back room. Examine the frame to find the key.
Club Key Location (Leon)
The club key in Resident Evil 2 requires you to play as Leon, not Claire. Like the diamond key, you will also need to have found all three goddess statue medallions first before you can find the club key. This key is located in the Boiler Room on the first floor (1F), which you can find once you have explored the facility beneath the police station. The key is taped on the dry erase board.
Sewer Key Location
The sewer key in Resident Evil 2 will allow you to open the Water Injection Chamber and Workers' Break Room Doors in the upper part of the Sewers. To find the sewer key, continue through the passages to the west of the Lower Waterway and use the T-Bar Handle to open a gate at the bottom of some steps. Continue along the walkway to find the sewer key hanging on the board above the dimly lit desk.
