Weapon locations - Resident Evil 3

Where to find all the weapons in Resident Evil 3 for the Achievement/Trophy, Kendo's Armory.


There are a lot of weapons to unlock in Resident Evil 3. For those that want every advantage possible over the zombies, finding the location of all these weapons is going to be important, especially for those playing on tougher difficulties. Depending on what difficulty you choose, you may start off with a slight advantage. Take the time to collect all the weapons, as it’s needed for the Achievement/Trophy, Kendo’s Armory.

Hand Grenades can be found all over the place.

The Hand Grenade is your standard fragmentation grenade that sends out shrapnel to destroy everything nearby.

Flash Grenade

Flash Grenades can also be found throughout the entire Resident Evil 3 story.

The Flash Grenade, as the name suggests, generates a large flash of light and sound. This is useful at distracting some enemies, allowing you to slip by.

G19 Handgun

The G19 is Jill's main weapon for the first part of Resident Evil 3.

The G19 Handgun is going to be the first weapon you use in Resident Evil 3. This is Jill’s go-to weapon and one that you will likely use throughout the entire campaign.

G18 Handgun

The G18 is Carlos' off-hand weapon, when not using the Assault Rifle.

This is Carlos’ primary weapon in Resident Evil 3, and practically the same as Jill’s G19, albeit with a few more rounds in the magazine.

M3 Shotgun

The Shotgun is located in the Subway Office. You will need to unlock the Bolt Cutters to access it. This weapon is excellent at quickly taking out zombies and other monsters

CQBR Assault Rifle

Resident Evil 3 CQBR Assault Rifle
The Assault Rifle is Carlos' main weapon, and can also be found on Jill when playing on Assisted.

The Assault Rifle is Carlos’s weapon of choice and one you will need to wait to use unless of course, you’re playing on Assisted. For those using the Assisted difficulty, Jill will start the campaign with an Assault Rifle, making some of the earlier encounters a bit easier.

MGL Grenade Launcher

The Grenade Launcher is found in the sewers, specifically, in the Office in the Lower Waterway section. This is going to be a late-game weapon that will be used to clear groups of enemies and deal with the always-chasing Nemesis.

The G18 Handgun is a burst-fire model of Jill’s classic G19. This weapon is found in the hospital upon controlling Jill once more. After getting out of the bed, find the G18 Handgun on the counter. Carlos also uses the G18 Handgun, albeit not the burst model.

0.44 AE Lightning Hawk

The Lightning Hawk, also known as the Magnum, is one of the last weapons you’ll unlock in the Resident Evil 3 remake. This gun is only available in the hospital and can only be retrieved by Jill. We have a detailed guide on how to get the Lightning Hawk, but for those that want a more general nudge, the magnum is in the Courtyard area on 1F. You will need to crawl through a small tunnel on 2F as Jill in order to reach a broken window used to jump down to it.

Finding all of the weapons in Resident Evil 3 will reward you with the Achievement/Trophy, Kendo’s Armory. This is also a Record, which should help with unlocking items in the Store. Take a moment to look at the Shacknews Resident Evil 3 guide for all of our other guides and tips.
