Resident Evil 4 Remake: Scratched Emerald

There are side quests in Resident Evil 4 Remake, also known as the Merchant Requests, which ask you to find items and sell them to the Merchant itself. One of these valuable items is the Scratched Emerald. My guide will discuss how to find the desired treasure item.

Key Takeaways

  • Scratched Emerald is a treasure that can be found in Chapter 12 of the game.
  • It is hidden inside a crow’s nest on the path joining Courtyard and Wine cellar.
  • You can also sell it to the Merchant for 5000 Pesetas.
  • Collecting the Scratched Emerald is also part of a Merchant Request, The Jewel Thief.
  • If you have activated the side quest, you will be rewarded with 3x Spinels upon submitting the treasure to the Merchant.

What Is Scratched Emerald

Scratched Emerald is a valuable item colored green that comes under the treasure category. You can find the Emerald in Chapter 12 when exploring the Castle.

Collecting the treasure must also complete a Merchant Request known as Jewel Thief. So I recommend you to Find the Request on the wall inside the big hall at the start of Chapter 12. The quest’s description also hints at where you might find the Scratched Emerald.

The item can be sold for 5000 Pesetas when taken to the Merchant. If you picked the Merchant Request before selling the Scratched Emerald, you would get 3x Spinels for trading.

Scratched Emerald Location

You can find the Scratched Emerald in a crow’s nest near the second Merchant in Chapter 12 of the game. To reach this location, follow these steps:

  1. Start by going right from the Merchant’s spot where you picked up your Request.
  2. Open the small gate and proceed until you find a large door.
  3. Open the door and continue until you reach the Ballroom.
  4. Descend the main stairs and open the large door at the far end.
  5. There will be a crow sitting on a piece of stone on the other side of the door. Approach the crow so it flies away.
  6. Follow the crow as it leads you to its nest. If you lose sight of the crow, continue straight until you see a large door entrance.
  7. Look to your right after crossing from the door to find the crow’s nest on the slanted roof.
  8. Shoot down the crow’s nest with any weapon, and the Scratched Emerald will drop to the ground.

Now you can collect the Scratched Emerald from the ground.

Taking It To The Merchant

After collecting it, your final job will be to take it to the Merchant if you wish to complete the Merchant Request. There will be two options for you from here; either take the Emerald to the same Merchant where you found the blue letter for the side quest, or you can find a new merchant that is relatively closer.

After you find the scratched Emerald, look to your left to witness a small, closed brown door. Open it to find the Merchant to your right. You can sell the treasured item over there for 5000 Pesetas and collect your 3 Spinels as a reward for completing the Jewel Thief request.

Ending Notes

That is all your information about the Scratched Emerald in Resident Evil 4 Remake. If you also want to complete the merchant request, grab it at the start of the Chapter, as there will be a checkpoint after its location, which will not let you take it afterward.
