Locations of various memos, notes, etc. in Resident Evil 4.

  • 1-1. Alert Order: In the Pueblo, towards the exit. It's on the wall above a table. There's some handgun ammo on the table.
  • 1-1. About the Blue Medallions: In the farm, right after the Pueblo. It's hanging from a tree just across the fence from the building with the typewriter.
  • 1-2. Chief's Note: Inside Chief Mendez' house, upstairs in the bedroom that has the Insignia Key. It's on the bed.
  • 1-3. Closure of the Church: Past the church, in the little building on the walkway above the lake/swamp. There's a snake in a box right next to it.
  • 2-1. Anonymous Letter: Ada leaves a memo in the building on the far side of the lake. Leon wakes up there after defeating Del Lago.
  • 2-2. Sera and the 3rd Party: Almost immediately upon entering the Farm when Leon revisits it at night. The memo is to the left in the outbuilding with the typewriter.
  • 2-3. Two Routs: After the Cabin Brawl, there's a note about the left and right paths in the building outside with the typewriter.
  • 2-3. Village's Last Defense: Right after the left and right paths, in the building across from the Merchant.
  • 3-1. Capture Luis Sera: Shortly before the Water Maze there's a memo hanging on the wall, near the key to the Prison where you encounter the first Garrador. It's right next to a yellow herb.
  • 3-1.Target Practice: In the first Shooting Gallery at the end of the chapter; on the Merchant's counter. It talks about the game's rules and prizes.
