The besieged hut (篭城小屋 ?)[1] is an area of the village in Resident Evil 4. Leon and Ashley were cornered by a crowd of ganados forcing them to take refuge inside a cabin where they meet Luis Sera again.


A large suspension bridge leads to a two-story cabin in the middle of the forest. Two large gates sit next to the cabin, leading toward the exit of the village. A smaller hut sits next to the left gate. 


Right at the entrance of the area is a Merchant, and past him a bridge. Crossing the bridge, Leon will get a call from HQ. Proceeding past this point will start a cutscene that leads the player straight inside the hut to meet Luis. After Ingrid Hannigan calls Leon to tell him the Helicoper that was supposed to rescue them was shot down, Leon and Ashley were surprised by a horde of Ganados, seeing a hut ahead, the two enter it to avoid danger. Luis Sera is inside of it and decides to help Leon. 

The hut has two floors. In the first floor there are three windows where Ganados will come from, and beside each window there are cabinets the player can push to prevent the Ganados from getting in the house.

There is a Red Herb in front of Leon as soon as the cutscene ends, Shotgun Shells on his left on top of a table and a Yellow Herb sitting next to the door that is locked.

In the second floor there other three windows: after the player kills a certain amount of enemies, the Ganados will start placing ladders on those windows so they can reach Leon and Luis. There's a dresser on one of the corners and Ashley will hide inside until the fight is over. A Flash Grenade lies on a table in front of the dresser, and a Green Herb next to it. At the other corner there is a Hand Grenade. An Incendiary Grenade sits on the second floor as well.

After some time, the crowd of Ganados decide to retreat and Luis leaves the hut in a very suspicious way. Leon and Ashely continue their journey with the end of the chapter. 

Outside of the hut there is ammo for TMP and Handgun on top of piles of logs; there is also a small cabin with a Typewriter and the Two Routes document. The document explains the road ahead, showing a lever that can be turned right or left to open one of two gates. The right gate opens the path to the Road below the cliff and the left one leads to the Barrier. Both paths lead to the same location, but each has different enemies Leon must face to proceed.

The merchant will also relocate beside the small cabin after the end of the battle, as this starts a new chapter.

In Separate Ways, just after the above, Luis ends up encountering Ada Wong, and explained his sudden departure was so he could get the sample. He also is suspicious of her organization, but nonetheless complies with retrieving it for her, although only under the condition that Ada "kill the old man and his religious followers."
