One of the pillars of the experience of any self-respecting Resident Evil is certainly the resolution of the many puzzles scattered throughout the game world. Village, of course, is no exception.
In this guide, you will find the solution to the riddle of the village safe that will give you access to the Jack Handle, useful for lifting the tractor that blocks your way and recovering the Wheel of the Well (an essential tool for recovering various objects in the game world.
After eliminating the first boss of the game, Lady Dimitrescu, you will leave the castle and return to the village. After a short cut-scene, Il Duca will explain the next objective: ‘Find the house with the red chimney.’
Return to the first area and continue through the gate visible in the image below.
Enter the house on the left and exit through the secondary door that will allow you to unlock the blue door.
After unlocking the blue door, turn to your left and remove the obstacle blocking the passage.
At the end of the road, turn left and continue until you meet another gate, the one with the ‘Do Not Enter sign.
Shoot the lock and enter the small structure on the left, the one that houses the safe.
Now turn to your right and look through the window to find the combination ‘070408’.
Inside the safe, you will find the Jack Handle and an M1911 pistol, much more powerful than the one supplied to Ethan since the adventure.
Go back until you find the tractor and use the Crank to lift it.
