Hidden jewels are dotted around Raccoon City for Resident Evil 3: Nemesis players to collect and if you would like to know where to find them, you’ve come to the right place. 

Capcom’s newest remake released on April 3, bringing a whole host of different monsters back from the original 1999 game and right into the 21st century.


Now that it’s available to play, members of the game’s community are wondering about the location of the main city’s most valuable Fancy Boxes and we know exactly what locations you need to loot up in order to grab them.

Before we kick things off in terms of instructions, do have in mind that you’re going to need a pair of Bolt Cutters and a Lock Pick to hand in order to complete the three different tasks. These can be unlocked by continuing the game’s story, as they are key items.


Once you have collected each gem, take them to the Clock Tower Commemoration machine inside the station (seen below) and you can trade them in for goodies, such as ammo, weapon accessories and an upgrade to your inventory – making it well worth the hassle.

All jewel locations in Resident Evil 3’s Raccoon City

There are three jewels in total – colored Red, Green and Blue – and these are all in close proximity to each other. Once you’re in Raccoon City, it shouldn’t take long to pick up all of them. Now, where to look…

Red jewel

Head over to Moon’s Donut shop. Walk through the entrance and turn left once you’re inside. There you will see another door, enter, and see the Fancy Box on the right of the room – next to a few other boxes. Collect it, open it up and there will be a Ruby inside.

Here is where you will find the first Fancy Box and inside it will be a red jewel.

Green jewel

Next up, the Fancy Box with an Emerald inside.

For this one, go to the blue store next to Toy Uncle supershop and use the Lock Pick to open the door – found on the right side of the building. Once you’re inside, just walk forward and the box will be there waiting to be collected.

Here is the door you need to enter for the green jewel.

Blue jewel

Last, but not least, is the Sapphire. Just walk back outside the last store you visited and right across the road is the supermarket.


To open its doors, simply select your Bolt Cutters and snap it open. There’s no hiding place for this Fancy Box, though, as it’s staring you in the face when you open up the door.

Fancy Box locations: Resident Evil 3 Nightmare/Inferno modes

These three that we’ve guided you to already are included in the normal mode, however in the harder difficulties such as the Nightmare or Inferno mode, three others can be found. Locations for these three can be found below.

  • Inside the Pharmacy
  • Power sub-station
  • Back alley opposite the Donut Shop’s back entrance

These three other Fancy Box locations are only available to those playing on higher difficulties.

Now that you know what you know, finding and cashing in on these hidden gems should be much easier. They’re all very close together, too, which minimizes the risk of being attacked in the process.

Once it’s all said and done, you can pick up a number of rewards that will help out in your fight against the infected! Good luck.

NICKMERCS reveals his AUG Warzone loadout to replace the MP5

Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has revealed what his ideal AUG loadout is in Warzone, offering a viable alternative to the more popular MP5 and MP7 SMGs.

For most people, they’ve got their Warzone loadouts figured out and often run what is typically considered the meta; the Kilo 141, with an MP5 in your back pocket.


While there is occasionally some variation, with some players maybe opting for the likes of the M4A1, an MP7 or a sniper rifle of some sort, there are some weapons that you’ll almost never see in Verdansk.

Season 6 launched back on September 29, and players have been testing out the new weapons, as well as how balancing might have changed the existing crop of guns — and Nick thinks the AUG could be a sleeper pick for your loadout.

The new Season 6 SP-R208 Marksman Rifle has been a particularly popular addition to Warzone.

After mentioning how pro Call of Duty players actually banned the AUG in pro scrims and matches earlier in 2020, as one of the weapons they made a “gentleman’s agreement” to not use, Nick explains that he believes the AUG can actually go toe-to-toe with the likes of the MP5 and MP7.

So, if you’re looking for a new submachine gun to run, and want to use something slightly different to the usual and take enemies by surprise, this AUG loadout might be for you. Here’s what Nick stacks on his:

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 407mm Extended Barrel
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

While most of this follows what we would typically expect from an SMG loadout in Warzone, there are some notable differences, but the biggest is the lack of ammunition options. Usually, you would see someone put some kind of magazine extension on their weapon, as is often necessary when finishing your kills in Warzone.


Instead, Nick’s AUG uses the standard magazine, and he opts for the Stippled Grip Tape underbarrel instead, improving recoil control and aiming stability. With this, you should hopefully hit more shots on your target and not have need for an extended magazine.

You’re not likely to see the AUG used much in Warzone, so with this loadout you might be able to catch your opponents by surprise and pick up some eliminations you wouldn’t have before.
