    INTRODUCTION
    
    =======================================================================
    
    
    This walkthrough is dedicated to the treasures of Resident Evil 5. 
    The walkthrough will tell you the location, sale value and the 
    certain conditions which you need to meet in order to gain 
    certain treasures. Unlike Resident Evil 4, you don't have 
    the ability to combine any treasures to increase their value. 
    Finding all the treasures will drastically help your fight against
    your relentless foes. Have fun! 
    
    The walkthrough will also reveal farming locations and techniques
    in order to help you buy and upgrade weapons much earlier than you'd
    normally be able to. 
    
    Treasures are not needed for story progression, so it's safe to sell
    all available treasures. How does one loot said treasures? You can
    loot treasures in the same way you loot items and weapons, with a
    quick press of the Square or X buttons as soon as you're given the
    correct onscreen prompt. 
    
    NOTE: There are 50 unique types of treasure to find. 
    
    NOTE: THIS GUIDE CONTAINS SPOILERS! BE ADVISED.

    002. TREASURE FARMING
    
    =======================================================================
    
    What is farming you ask? Well, it's the process of revisiting already
    completed chapters and re-looting all the treasures and items. 
    The main benefit of farming is to increase your gold in order to fully
    upgrade and buy additional weapons in order to beat the harder 
    difficulties. 
    
    Any chapter can be revisited for this purpose, but there are chapters
    which are more beneficial than others. These chapters are listed
    below. 
    
    Once you've aquired your treasure, simply quit and save your ivnentory
    when prompted. Easy. 
    
    __________________________________
    
    CHAPTER 3-1 (MARSHLANDS)
    __________________________________
    
    
    The best chapter to farm if you're wanting to loot without
    encounteringany crazed African's or BOW creatures. 
    Start by visiting each ofthe docks, collecting the numerous idols,
    chalices and beetles. Refer to the guide if you're having trouble
    finding them. 
    
    There are two additional areas of interest. The poultry farm and the
    sunken ship. The poultry farm will yield a random egg, the gold
    and rottene ggs inparticular are very valuable. The golden egg can
    be sold for 1,000 whilst the rotten egg can also be sold for 2,000. 
    
    Once you're done with the chicken chasing, head to the sunken ship
    in the northwest section of the map. Loot the beetle in the water and 
    the rocket launcher in the silver case. 
    
    NOTE: Do not pickup any key-items or countless Manjini will spawn. 
    
    __________________________________
    
    CHAPTER 3-1 (EGG GLITCH)
    __________________________________
    
    
    
    Collect some rotten eggs, through the chicken farm area. Get as many 
    as you can. Start a game, invite your online friend. Give him all 
    your rotten eggs. You quit, and press B, so you DON'T save. He 
    presses A, so he DOES save. You will then still have all of your eggs,
    but he'll have duplicates.  Repeat this until you both have 45 rotten
    eggs ($90,000).
     
    Then trade them back and forth at $90,000 a time. 
    This also works in split-screen
    
    __________________________________
    
    CHAPTER 4-1 (CAVES)
    __________________________________
    
    This is a very profitable level to farm if you're prepared to kill
    everything in your path. This sub chapter has alot of gems and
    sarcophagus' to get your mitts on. 
    
    You can also avoid having to fight your way through waves of enemies
    if you simply encounter Popokarimu and defeat him for an easy
    Soul Gem. Rush the bosses position and a cut scene will occur,
    which will result in all other enemies being removed from the map.

    CHAPTER 5-1 (FACILITY)
    __________________________________
    
    Your aim here is to run through this quick subchapter as fast as you
    possibly can whilst dispatching the lickers in the numerous hallways.
    Each licker has a chance to drop a Lion Heart gem, which is worth
    2,500 gold. A typical speed run of this sub chapter should only take
    you around 6-7 minutes while yielding 7000 - 10,000 gold, if you're
    lucky with the gem drops that is. 
    
    Set the difficulty to amateur for an easier time.

    A big thankyou to Skylar for e-mailing me with with another farming
    spot for sub chapter 5-2, see below. 
    
    "Also, in regards to farming, I found the fastest and easiest way to 
    get cash is to farm the Lickers in '5-2 Experimental Facility'. 
    It's the third point, after you take an elevator, and directly 
    following the first dudes with guns. The room is called Passageway, 
    It has around 10 or so Lickers, and it's a U shaped room with fencing
    in the middle. When you kill them all, which should only take around 
    two minutes, you will acquire 5 Lion Hearts every time, netting 
    12,500. As soon as you nab the fifth Lion Heart, QUIT and SAVE. 
    
    DO NOT LEAVE THE ROOM MAKING A NEW CHECKPOINT. Then just CONTINUE 
    and you'll be right back in Passageway ready to nab another 12,500. 
    You can get around 100,000 in roughly twenty minutes as opposed 
    to ' 4-1 Caves'  40,000 in thirty."

    The easiest and most simple way to earn money. When this sub chapter
    begins, head out the door to the west, ascend the ladder and open the
    safe to net yourself an easy gem which is worth 3,000 gold. This
    is the chapter you'll want to do if you haven't aquired the luxury of
    infinite ammo.
