What are all Goats of Warding locations in Resident Evil Village? Much like previous entries in the franchise, Resident Evil Village contains collectibles for you to find throughout its various locations and environments. Recent examples include the Charlie Dolls in Resident Evil 3 and Antique Coins in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. In this Resident Evil Village guide, we're going to reveal all Goat of Warding locations. Finding and shooting them all will unlock the Heretic Trophy.
Resident Evil Village: All Goats of Warding Locations
Resident Evil Village has 20 Goats of Warding for you to find. These collectibles are small figurines in the shapes of wooden goats, with a head that slowly rocks back and forth. When you're close to one, it will make a rocking noise. To register each one as found, you must shoot it, at which point it will disappear. There is no interaction prompt associated with the collectible, so you must scan the environment carefully to find them. We will now share all Goat of Warding locations in the order you will encounter them in the story.
Goat of Warding #1
Following the first big Lycan attack and you've bumped into the old woman in The Village, you'll come to a courtyard with the Maiden of War statue in the middle. Approach the Outer Gate next to the Church and the first Goat of Warding will be on your right (image taken after shooting, but it's definitely there).
Goat of Warding #2
Immediately after finding Goat of Warding #1, head to the Church building. On its roof, viewable from the outside, will be the next Goat of Warding.
Goat of Warding #3
In the Fallow Plot area, head east of the two buildings in the area. The Goat of Warding will be sitting on top of a wall where you can't progress any further. It's right by the large gate.
Goat of Warding #4
Right after escaping the dungeon where Heisenberg captures you, you'll find yourself in the Vineyard. Head to the end of the middle row of crops and the Goat of Warding will be in front of you.
Goat of Warding #5
Immediately after climbing down the ladder from the Hall of Ablution puzzle, turn around and look in the corner by the candles. The Goat of Warding will be right in front of you.
Goat of Warding #6
Once you've climbed a ladder leading to the Attic directly after solving the bell puzzle in the Atelier room, turn around after reaching the top. The Goat of Warding will be on top of a box.
Goat of Warding #7
After making it to the Ceremony Site, you will come to a long set of downward steps leading to a bridge. Cross it and then immediately take the first left. Head down the steps and then turn around. There will be a small room ahead of you with an enemy inside as well as the Goat of Warding on the ground.
Goat of Warding #8
When you return to The Village area for a second time with the Maiden of War statue in the centre, go behind the Church and use the Iron Insignia Key to enter the graveyard. In the back right corner will be the Goat of Warding.
Goat of Warding #9
Once again in The Village area, head to the two buildings that were previously locked off because the owner wasn't present. The Goat of Warding is located in between the two buildings on top of a grate. You can only access this the second time you visit The Village.
Goat of Warding #10
Once you've unlocked the door north of the Altar in The Village, take the creepy path until you reach a wooden bridge. Look to your left and the Goat of Warding is located on the next bridge along. This will be accessible on your way to House Beneviento.
Goat of Warding #11
Before heading into House Beneviento, head to the left of the house and down a very small set of stairs. On the other side of the railing, there will be the Goat of Warding on the cliff edge.
Goat of Warding #12
Once you reach the lake encompassing Moreau's territory, you will eventually bump into the Duke shortly after a short chase sequence. Take the only other exit out of the building the Duke is inside, and follow the path until you're on the windmill. Follow the path around to the right and the Goat of Warding will be on the floor at the end.
Goat of Warding #13
When you are being chased by the gigantic fish in Moreau's territory across planks and rooftops, you will have to push a crate into the water in order to progress. From that vantage point, look north and you'll spot some wood sticking out of the lake. The Goat of Warding will be on top of the highest piece of wood.
Goat of Warding #14
After the boss fight with Moreau, return to the place where you got on the boat before the sequence with the gigantic fish really starts. A new path will have opened up after draining the lake, and immediately after walking through the destroyed windmill, the Goat of Warding will be on your left.
Goat of Warding #15
Underneath Otto's Mill. Follow the river upstream and you'll find the Goat of Warding on your left under the building itself. You can access this area on the way to the Stronghold. Just before the long, dark staircase leading upwards, take the left through the tall grass.
Goat of Warding #16
After fighting an army of Lycans in the Stronghold, in which you'll need to use a zip line to progress, you'll come to a winding staircase headed downwards. At the bottom will be the Goat of Warding on your right.
Goat of Warding #17
Once you've made it to the Ventilation Duct in Heisenberg's Factory, a huge fan will suck you in and you'll have to shoot the light in the middle of it. Once you're on the level below, head towards the Grinder Shaft and the Goat of Warding will be at the end of the path.
Goat of Warding #18
Following the boss fight with a man that has a spinning propeller for a head, you'll end up in a control room. Directly opposite the entrance is a vent you can crawl through. Do so and the Goat of Warding will be in the next room.
Goat of Warding #19
In Heisenberg's Factory, when you're able to bring the elevator all the way up to level B1 with the Duke inside. The Goat of Warding can be found on the outer part of the elevator on a raftor you'll need to shoot while it's moving. It's much closer to level B3 than B1. Send the elevator to either floor and look out the opening on the Duke's right-hand side. You'll only have a very brief window to shoot the Goat of Warding so this is very likely to take multiple tries.
Goat of Warding #20
After planting a bomb in the Megamycete during a cutscene whilst playing as a different character, look to your immediate right as soon as the cutscene ends. Behind some spikes is a statue, and at its feet is the final Goat of Warding. (No map available in this area.)
