Leon’s Desk Puzzle Solution in Resident Evil 2

During the Leon Kennedy campaign of Resident Evil 2, you’re eventually going to find yourself in the Raccoon City police station. When you reach the West Office area, which you can see on the map of the ground floor of the police station just below, Leon will find himself tasked with opening the locks on his own desk.

Poor Leon, the guy just can’t catch a break. The note on top of the desk instructs Leon that to open both locks, he must input the initials of every other officer in the room. Well, this is hard, as every other officer in the West Office is now a shambling corpse, or soon to be one (sorry, Marvin).

So, you’ve got to find the names of the deceased colleagues, near each desk. But instead of using your time like this, we’ve got the combination for both locks, just below. The first image is of the correct combination on the right, while the image further down is of the correct lock combination code on the left of Leon’s desk.

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
