Moreau's hidden weapon is one of many optional treasures in Resident Evil Village, but this treasure is one of the most valuable items in the entire game. Moreau's hidden weapon is undoubtedly one of the best weapons in all of Resident Evil Village: the M1851 Magnum. While it may look old-fashioned on the surface, this gun has the highest damage output of anything you'll get on your first playthrough, even standing side-by-side with the best weapons in the Extra Content Store. Here's how to get Moreau's hidden weapon in Resident Evil Village.
How to Get Moreau's Hidden Weapon
Moreau's hidden weapon can only be obtained after defeating Moreau in the tank. You'll also get the Crank during this section of the game, an item you'll need to find this weapon and gain access to new areas of the village. Once you've beaten Moreau, head to the location marked on the map and you'll be able to get Moreau's hidden weapon: the M1851 Wolfsbane magnum.
After defeating Moreau, return to the village. You will pass a door that requires unlocking the crank. Open the door and take the narrow path. You'll encounter a few Lycans along the way, but you should be able to dispatch them easily. Past the enemies, there are a few empty cabins. The rear house can be entered through a small hole in the back wall. Crouch down there and take care of feeding the unique Lycan inside. Next, open the small chest on the table to find the M1851 Wolfsbane.
The M1851 Wolfsbane has the highest damage of any gun in the entire game, except for maybe the upgraded F2 rifle. Its ammo is very scarce and it has a slow reload speed and rate of fire, but it more than makes up for these drawbacks with its raw power. Once you get the weapon, you will have the opportunity to test it. A werewolf will appear outside, and you can either try to sneak past and head back to the village, or put your new magnum to the test. The choice is yours, but your new weapon will definitely make this fight in your favor.
