Resident Evil 2 Dial Locks Solution - How to Solve Leon’s Desk in Resident Evil 2

Here's how to unlock Leon's very own desk in Resident Evil 2.

In the west office area of Resident Evil 2's police station, you're going to be tasked with unlocking Leon Kennedy's very own desk. In this Resident Evil 2 Leon's desk guide, we'll be providing you with the solution for both dial locks on either side of Leon's desk, so you can open it up without any trouble.

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.

The Code to Unlock Leon's Desk in Resident Evil 2 Remake

The code you need to unlock Leon's desk in the Resident Evil 2 remake is just below. It's a unique code for the left and right locks.

  • Left lock code: NED
  • Right lock code: MRG

What's in Leon's Desk?

Once you’ve been through this and opened up Leon’s desk, you’ll be rewarded with a high capacity magazine for Matilda, Leon’s pistol. Simply combine it in your inventory as you go to pick it up, and you’ll have boosted the magazine of your base weapon as Leon.
