Safe codes and locations - Resident Evil 3

Discover the location of all safes and the safe codes to open them in Resident Evil 3.


There are only a few safes and safe codes to find in Resident Evil 3. Each of these safes holds a valuable item that will help both Jill and Carlos survive the events of Raccoon City. For one of these safes, players may be surprised to know it’s the exact same combination found in the previous game.

Safe codes and locations

Players can find three safes in Resident Evil 3. But it’s not enough to find the safe, you will also need to know the safe code in order to open it up. The safes contain some of the weapon upgrades as well as a Hip Pouch.

These safes are part of the Achievement/Trophy and challenge, RE: Master of Unlocking.

Downtown safe – Drugstore storage room

One of the first safes you’ll encounter in Resident Evil 3 is in the drugstore owner’s storage room in the Downtown area. The storage area is up the stairs by the donut shop. As for where to find the code, it’s in the pharmacy. Go to the back of the pharmacy and look at the poster for Aqua Cure, the digits circled are the combination.

The safe code to the Nurses' Station safe is in the Operating Room.

The last safe is in the Hospital, in the Nurses’ Station on the second floor (2F). The Hospital safe code is found in the Operating Room. This safe can be unlocked as either Carlos or Jill, so consider which character you want to have the weapon upgrade. For those playing on Assisted, Jill will have an Assault Rifle, so it could be worth collecting it as her.
