The Special Key is a key item in Resident Evil 2.


The Key can only be obtained in the Normal or Hard Modes, from the zombie of Brad Vickers. Brad is in the tunnel found before entering the Raccoon City Police Station. If Leon or Claire have not picked up any items up to this point, when examining the body of Brad, they will get the key.
