"It opens the door at the center of the camp."
— Item description

The Camp Key, known in the Japanese version as the Barrier Key or Checkpoint Key (関所のカギ Sekisho no kagi?), is a key item in Resident Evil 4.


The key is used to unlock the gate in the southern half of the barrier in the game to excel further to get closer to the battle with Bitores Mendez in Chapter 2-3.

This is one of three key items that can be obtained and not used. Once you obtain the key, you can turn back and go the other route with El Gigante.


This item can be found in the barrier set up to prevent Leon from going further in Chapter 2–3.[1] It is dropped by the Chainsaw Sisters after defeating them.
