As players reached Chapter 7, they will get to the Castle and they will start seeing the locked treasure boxes named “Square Lock Boxes”. There is one in the southwest of the Audience Chamber. Players will not be able to unlock it until they have the required key item for it. The required Key Item to unlock the Square Lock Boxes is a “Cubic Device” which players can find later in the game.

In this guide, we’ll tell you how to get the Cubic Device and Unlock Square Lock Boxes in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

How to Get the Cubic Device

The Cubic Device Key Item can be found in Chapter 9. Players will not be able to find it earlier than Chapter 9 so, they will have to make progress in the game and solve the Courtyard Maze puzzle to make their way into the Grand Hall. Once they have made their way into the Grand Hall, they will be able to find the Cubic Device inside the chest located between the Armory and Grand Hall.

In order to get to the Chest, players will have to go to the Armory room on the second floor of the Grand Hall. Once there, they will have to get the Lion Head for Headless Statue Puzzle and then clear the area from the Mutated Knights. After that, open the door with Ashley and go along the path and you will see a chest. Open the chest to get the Cubic Device. Go ahead on the path to come out in the Grand Hall.
