Backpacks are special items in Resident Evil 7. They’re inventory extenders – they increase your pocket space, allowing you to carry more stuff with you. Gathering them will allow you to stop backtracking to the item box every few minutes. There are only a few of them, and each one adds four new inventory slots. Getting them might not be easy, but they’re worth the trouble. In this guide, we’re going to show you all Resident Evil 7 backpack locations, to help you increase your inventory size.
How to increase inventory in Resident Evil 7
The first backpack is at the old house. It’s in the save room across the rickety bridge from the gallery, outside the main building. It’s on the table, right next to the tape recorder.
Another backpack is hidden in the storage room next to the master bedroom. It’s on the second floor of the main house, and you’ll need the snake key to enter it. It’s on the top shelf of a small rack on the right.
You can get another one once you reach the wrecked ship. You’ll need a bottle of corrosive for this one – don’t worry, there’s another one waiting for you next to the backpack. Go to the northeastern part of the first floor, to the recreation room. Use the corrosive to destroy the lock. Once inside, you’ll see the backpack on the left, on a metal table.
There might be more – the inventory UI clearly has space for at least another row – but we haven’t found them yet. We’ll update the guide if and when we do. In case you have a backpack that isn’t listed here, feel free to let us know in the comments.
