Resident Evil 2 Hip Pouches help upgrade your inventory slots and are really useful to carry around items without making frequent trips to storage boxes.
These Hip Pouches are scattered all across the Scenarios in Resident Evil 2 and are miss-able, which could be immensely frustrating when carrying around some of the bigger weapons towards the end of the game.
How do Hip Pouches work and how do you upgrade your inventory in Resident Evil 2?
As mentioned earlier Hip Pouches are located across the Scenario, with 6 in total to collect, with each increasing your inventory by 2 slots for 12 in total. Some of the items and weapons that you’ll collect take up multiple slots like the Matilda with a Stock equipped for example, so getting the Hip Pouches is essential.
