Resident Evil 7 - Lockpick locations and where to use them

Where to find every Lockpick and locked drawer in the game.

The Resident Evil 7 Lockpick is one of the most useful items when it comes to exploration.

As you play through the game's many locations, you'll come across many locked drawers and a prompt to use an item to open it. If you have a Lockpick, select it and open it up.

Not all Lockpick locations are as gross as this.

Wile there are an equal number of Lockpicks and locked drawers, you may want to open some sooner than others depending on the item you need.

For completionists, it's also where you find two Antique Coins.

This page features a list of Lockpick locations, and where you can make use of them, to save you backtracking through every room.
