The S.T.A.R.S. office is an area of the Raccoon City Police Station featured in Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.[1][2] It is the main headquarters of the S.T.A.R.S tactical team. This is were the S.T.A.R.S. members gathered, finished paperwork, sent radio transmissions, stored items and weapons.


A rectangular room, it contains four desks (two of whom are split desks capable of seating two people a piece for a total of six people seated in the room), a gun/storage locker and a radio set. It also contains a fax machine, a book case, the S.T.A.R.S flag and printing paper.


Resident Evil 2

In both Leon A and Claire A the player must enter this room to obtain the Unicorn Medal to use in the Main hall in order to obtain the Spade Key and progress.

First Aid Spray is inside the Medical Bag. A fax addressed to Chris Redfield appears in the faxing machine.

In Claire B, the Diamond Key appears instead of the Unicorn Medal.

Depending on the scenario, different items can appear inside the Weapon cabinet:

Searching behind Albert Wesker's desk, player will find Handgun Ammo. After searching the desk 50 times, a secret film canister will come out. After producing the picture in the Dark Room, a photo of Rebecca Chambers will appear.

Claire and Leon only physically see each other a few times during the course of Resident Evil 2. In Leon A/Claire B, the S.T.A.R.S Office is the place they reunite after being separated in the introduction.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

Jill Valentine heads back into the S.T.A.R.S. office to retrieve her trusty lockpick lying on her desk. She takes a fax regarding the new Samurai Edge handgun inside the faxing machine. While fighting zombie hordes in the streets, Carlos Oliveira sends an urgent message to radio control inside the room, which Jill is able to hear.

Either the Magnum or Hk-P Grenade Launcher can appear randomly inside the weapon cabinet. The First Aid Spray can be found in the medic bag near the Rebecca's table. And Handgun Ammo can be found on the Barry's table.
