Resident Evil 2 Medallions - How to Unlock the Lion, Maiden, Unicorn Medallion Puzzles in Resident Evil 2

Here's our complete Resident Evil 2 walkthrough, taking you through the campaign as either Leon Kennedy or Claire Redfield.

When you're well into the Raccoon City police station of Resident Evil 2, both Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield will be tasked with obtaining three medallions in total, in order to escape the building for good. In our Resident Evil 2 Medallions guide, we'll be walking you through how to obtain the Lion, Maiden, and Unicorn medallions as easily as possible.

If you instead however need anything else relating to the new remake of the old classic from Capcom, you’ll want to head over to our Resident Evil 2 walkthrough. Here you can find our full beginner’s guide for the game, as well as a complete list of our additional guides to surviving Raccoon City.

In this guide, we're going to be detailing how you can get hold of all three medallions in the police station. We'll be listing out the locations of the statues, as well as the correct symbols you'll need to input into each one to unlock the corresponding medallion.

Resident Evil 2 Medallions Mission

Once you've made it through the Western Storage Room of the Raccoon City police station, Marvin will radio to Leon/Claire, telling them to return to the main hall. When you get back to Marvin, he'll instruct you to retrieve three medallions, so you can make it to the underground parking garage and meet up with your companion. Just below, you can find instructions on how to find and retrieve all three medallions in Resident Evil 2.

Resident Evil 2 Lion Medallion Solution

This one is simple to find. There’s a large statue of a lion in the main hall, at the opposite end to where Leon Kennedy first enters the police station.

The correct combination for the three dials is located in the officer’s notebook, that you picked up back near the beginning of this location. But, you can check out the image below for the correct combination to obtain the lion medallion.

Once you’ve obtained the lion medallion, you’re now one step closer to getting the hell out of the Raccoon City police station, and to Claire Redfield in the parking garage.

Resident Evil 2 Unicorn Medallion Solution

In order to find the huge statue of the unicorn, you’re going to have to reach the lounge area of the police station. The lounge can be located on the second floor of the police station, and you can reach it through the main library area.

For the correct combination for this statue, check out the image below. Once again, all the information you need is in the officer’s notebook, and he’s helpfully scribbled down the solution to all three statues.

Resident Evil 2 Maiden Medallion Solution

For the maiden medallion, you firstly need to make your way past the C4 in the west storage room. Once you've obtain the detonator and the battery from the STARS Office, you can go to the C4 and blow your way through it to reach the maiden statue.

Just below, you can see the slightly smudged combination to unlock the maiden statue. Just in case you're having trouble making it out, the combination from left to right is: maiden, bow, snake.
