The next horrifying installment of the Resident Evil series has finally arrived. Continuing the story of Ethan Winters following the events of Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil Village sees our titular hero venture into a mysterious eastern European town to save his kidnapped baby. Throughout your journey, Ethan will encounter all sorts of horrific monsters, eccentric characters, puzzles, and familiar faces. Pulling inspiration from previous entries, Resident Evil Village mixes both horror and action. Some of the easiest to miss items are Treasures, special items that can be sold to the Duke for a lot of Lei. One of these is a combinable treasure called the Wooden Animal. Broken up across two parts, here’s how to find the body and head during your journey.
Wooden Animal Body Location
You can find the first piece of the treasure after you complete the castle segment. Once you make your way back to town, go to the Maiden of War statue and enter the house with an open blue gate. Go into the building and make your way through the structure until you reach the other door. You’ll find the Wooden Animal Body on the table to your right. There are no enemies you need to worry about, so don’t fret if your ammo is low.
Wooden Animal Head Location
To get the Wooden Animal Head you will need to first get the Well Wheel. To find this, progress through the village until you reach a long alleyway that ends with a building locked off by an Iron Gate. There are around four lycans guarding this location, along with an armored foe. Kill the lycans with a combination of sniper rounds and handgun bullets. Make sure to keep backing up so you aren’t swarmed, as there isn’t a ton of room to move. Once those foes are dead, either equip a pipe bomb or mine and get the armored lycan’s attention at the end of the alley. Use the explosion to destroy its body armor so you can bring it down with some shotgun rounds.
Now use the Iron Insignia Key to open the gate on the right and head into the small shack to find the Well Wheel. Now make your way back to the town square and go to the well outside of the home you found the Wooden Animal Body in. Place the wheel on the well to bring up the second piece of this treasure. You can now go into your Treasures menu and select Combine to fuse the two pieces together. This will make them way more valuable, netting you an easy 15,000 Lei when it’s sold to the Duke.
This treasure can be acquired at any time, but I recommend doing it early to ensure you can purchase some upgrades. After all, this pays for half an inventory upgrade or improvements to your arsenal which is always useful.
