Storage is handled a bit differently in RE4 remake. There are certain limitations on what can be stored and what needs to be carried, likely not to make the Attache Case a trivial matter. This guide will make sense of it all and show how to store weapons in Resident Evil 4.

What Can Be Sent to Storage in the Resident Evil 4 Remake?

Unlike item boxes or similar storage options from past games in the series, it’s not possible to move everything you have into storage. This is what can be sent to storage:

  • Weapons (Guns and Primary Knives)
  • Weapon Parts
  • First Aid Sprays

Any ammo, as well as other healing items, must be carried with you in the Attache Case. Alternatively, they can be sold, discarded, or prematurely used if you need to make room. Though some things should be kept around, such as the Golden Egg used to beat Salazar

If you want to collect all the weapons or simply don’t want to sell them, there are a few options for storing them. You’ll essentially be able to store weapons whenever you’re viewing the Attache Case.

The first and most common time for storing items will during regular gameplay. Simply select the weapon you want to store and then choose the “Send to Storage” option.

If the Bolt Thrower isn’t quite helping you at the moment, or you would rather send something else to storage to make room for the Red9 Handgun, this is the easiest and most accessible method to store weapons.

It’s not possible to remove weapons whenever you want, but you’ll be able to freely transfer with two other methods.

  • Whenever you visit a Typewriter to save, there will be an option to enter the storage screen. From there, you can easily store weapons or add them to your Attache Case.
  • These same options will be presented to you when you reach the end of a chapter, as well.
