Small Key in RE2

The Small Key (also known as the Old Key) is a recurring item in the Resident Evil series, appearing in Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2. Unlike other keys in the franchise, multiple ones can be obtained by the player and stacked in the Inventory like ammuntion.

The keys function as a substitute for the Lockpick item used only by Jill Valentine and Claire Redfield. The male protagonists, Chris Redfield and Leon Kennedy (which are automatically given the Lighter instead) have to collect several of these keys to unlock doors and desks.

The primary function of these items is to obtain hidden items and create shortcuts. They are only found in the first area of the game; the Mansion of RE1 and the Police Station of RE2.
