"A very destructive explosive used in mining."
— Item examination

Dynamite is an event item that can be found in Resident Evil 4. For info on Dynamite used as a weapon by enemies in the game see Ganado weapons.


It can be used  to blow up a boulder blocking Leon's path in Chapter 4-2. The boulder can also be removed with a shot from a Rocket Launcher which saves time and keeps reinforcements from appearing including Chainsaw Man. This also makes the Dynamite one of three key items that do not need to be used in the game.


Dynamite is found in the mine under the castle. It is in a trolly cart that must be activated and lowered via lift in order to be reached.[1]
