In Resident Evil 4 Remake you will find cabinets with rectangular recesses in the castle, which are not so easy to open. We’ll show you where you can find the strange cuboid needed for this and all the localities of such cabinets.
Find Strange Block
You need a special key for the cabinets with a rectangular recess. This is called the strange cuboid and you can only find him in the course of Chapter 9. So you can’t open the cupboard with a rectangular recess in the auditorium from chapter 7 at first.
Once you during Chapter 9 in the armory After you’ve fought the knights and gotten the lion’s head, you’ll pass an obviously placed treasure chest on the way back through a corridor. Inside this chest is the Strange Block you need.
You can use the strange cuboid on the cupboards to open them. It has various bulges and you always have to position the block correctly so that it fits into the grooves of the cabinet. Opening the cupboards is like a little mini-game.
Find all cabinets with a rectangular recess
There are five rectangular recessed cabinets in total, all of which are located in the castle. You have time to open them until you enter the cable car to the Clock Tower in Chapter 12. So make sure to open them all before then. Later, the strange cuboid becomes useless and you can sell it as a treasure at the dealer for 4,000 pesetas with a clear conscience.
