The new Resident Evil 4 Remake has plenty of familiar content to tickle your nostalgia but also features some new content. One of the latest is in the form of side quests that you can take on and turn in to the Merchant for rewards. This includes an egg hunt, which will task you with finding a golden egg in Resident Evil 4.
While some quests require you to destroy a certain number of blue medallions or find a particularly large fish, the Egg Hunt quest requires you to find a Golden Egg. This item is pretty rare and missable to boot, but it can be found pretty early on. Here’s where to find it and finish the quest.
Where to Find a Golden Egg in Resident Evil 4
Your first chance to grab a Golden Egg will be during Chapter 4. Once you’ve got access to a new boat to travel across the now safer waters, head to the east side of the lake. There’s a very small area where you can dock the boat at.
Unless you have the Village Treasure Map which reveals a small treasure here, it can be easy to assume there isn’t anything valuable here. The fact that the Golden Egg won’t pop up on the map until you come across it either only makes it easier to miss.
Once you leave the boat you’ll find a bunch of chickens running around. Multiple eggs can be found on the ground and you can even wait around for a bit to see if any of the chickens will lay some more for you.
The Golden Egg you’re looking for is near the back of the area. Walk around the little mountain of crates and shrubbery to find a shiny Golden Egg on the ground. It only takes up one space in your Attaché Case like other eggs, so it should be easy to make room if you have to. Feel free to examine it or even equip it if you want to make use of the Photo Mode to take some nice pictures of Leon holding an egg – just make sure not to eat it or throw it.
If you happen to have passed this part already, you’ll be able to find another one in the castle’s Throne Room. That won’t come up until Chapter 12 though, so it’s much easier to get it out of the way here.
Either way, return to the Merchant when you can and sell the Golden Egg to complete Resident Evil 4‘s Egg Hunt quest. You’ll earn three Spinels for completing the quest and 9,000 Pesetas for the sale.
