How to find blue medallions in Resident Evil 4 remake

Before you can go about finding blue medallions across the various areas of the Resident Evil 4 remake map, you'll need to track down the side mission prompt itself. These are white posters commonly dotted on walls or caverns in the world.

Once you've taken up the Merchant's offer of some side missions, it's time to actually hunt down blue medallions. Note that not all of the side missions in the game are tied to blue medallions: some focus on defeating new mini-bosses, while others need you to clear out rat infestations.

Most of the blue medallions in Resident Evil 4 remake can be found in the village section of the map, especially the farm and village square. That said, some of the later side missions on the island are also focused on blue medallions, so you'll always be looking for them.


Fortunately, once you've taken the side quest on, you can simply look at the map to see where blue medallions are located. These are marked with a specific blue medallion icon, showing exactly whereabouts you need to head.

Of course, it isn't always that easy, because Capcom has hidden these collectibles in nefarious spots. Some are hidden so that you can only seem them from certain vantage points, while others require you to clamber around to spot them from below or above eye level. Just knowing where they are is only half of the task - then it becomes a job of actually spotting them and shooting them down!
