How to find and ring the 5 bells in Resident Evil Village’s Dimitrescu Castle

A key part of Resident Evil Village needs Ethan to ring 5 bells at once, and our guide will tell you where they are in Lady Dimitrescu’s castle.

To advance in Resident Evil Village, players will need to overcome a tricky bell puzzle that isn’t all that clear. Our easy guide will show you where all 5 of them are to shoot in Castle Dimitrescu.

Resident Evil Village has taken inspiration from previous games in the franchise to create a compelling, rich, varied, and horrifying adventure. Capcom manages to find a great balance between intense combat and spine-chilling fear in a truly atmospheric setting.

One of the game’s stunning environments has to be Castle Dimitrescu, home to the extremely tall Lady Dimitrescu and her three daughters. During the game, Ethan has to collect four Angel Masks, but his route to one of them is impeded by the Atelier Room requiring 5 bells to ring. Our guide will show where they are, and what you’ll need to do to conquer the Resident Evil Village bells puzzle.

Where to find the 5 bells in Castle Dimitrescu’s Atelier Room

Castle Dimitrescu Bell #1

In classic Resident Evil fashion, the first bell is very easy and hard to miss. Next to the stairs leading up to the gears and swinging mechanism, you’ll see a giant bell sitting on top of a table.

Simply walk up to it, save your ammunition by equipping your knife, and swipe at the bell. It will ring and should ignite a flame above the bell.

Castle Dimitrescu Bell #2

If you look at the picture containing the note telling you to “Let the five bells of this chamber ring out,” and do a full 180, then you can look up and see this bell.

As usual, take careful aim at the bell, fire a single Pistol round, and watch the bell ricochet around and trigger a new flame.

Castle Dimitrescu Bell #3

The third one isn’t too tricky, but you could waste some ammo if you’re not careful. On the aforementioned swinging device, you can actually see the bell swinging from side-to-side.

We find the best way to hit it is to ascend the stairs and wait for the bell to reach its peak close to you. You only need a pistol for this, so wait for it to reach its prime position a couple of times so you know when to fire, and then when you’re ready, go for it.

Castle Dimitrescu Bell #4

The final two bells are a bit trickier and can rightfully throw people off. For bell number four, stay where you are after activating bell number three and look towards the middle of the room to see the chandelier overhead.

Unless you can somehow manage to get it in one, chances are you’ll end up shooting the chandelier once, which will send it careening back and forth. You’ll then need to land a second shot to hit the now exposed bell.

Castle Dimitrescu Bell #5

And last but not least is the deceptive bell, as the fifth and final one isn’t strictly in the Atelier Room. Once more, remain at the top of the stairs, and to the left of the chandelier, you can see a window letting light into the room.

On the second column of panes, you’ll see the bell in the distance. Take one shot to break the window, and then another to hit the bell. You should now have all 5 bells ringing simultaneously, and the giant portrait of Lady Dimitrescu should open for you to proceed!

Apex Legends’ popularity reaches new heights after Season 14 update

With the release of Apex Legends Season 14, the Battle Royale game is experiencing an unprecedented amount of active players.

Apex Legends Season 14 has achieved a new peak in popularity for Respawn Entertainment’s FPS Battle Royale game.

Apex Legends Season 14 brings some exciting new content to the game after the battle royale saw a slight dip in popularity towards the end of last season.

Luckily for Respawn, the brand-new Legend Vantage, overhauled Kings Canyon map, and huge Level Cap increase has been a massive hit with the fans, despite players finding bugs and glitches.

The new content has been so appealing that the game has even reached a new all-time peak player count on Steam, showing just how popular Apex Legends Season 14 is.

As of August 10, 2022, Apex Legends has a peak of 510,286 concurrent players, which is the highest it has ever been.

Although it’s only Steam‘s player count, this still shows just how popular the new Season of Apex Legends currently is.

Of course, the numbers are likely to decrease after launch week, but this is still impressive, especially as it shows that the game’s popularity is actually increasing despite being in its fourteenth season.

As Respawn continue to update and introduce new exciting content to the game, the player count will likely continue to rise, especially when players are now guaranteed an Heirloom.

Powerful Apex Legends glitch allows players to carry active Heat Shields on their head

Apex Legends players have noticed a new glitch in Season 14 which allows Heat Shields to be placed on character’s heads.

A new powerful glitch has been found in Apex Legends after the Season 14 update which sticks Heat Shields on top of the character.

A new season of Apex Legends doesn’t just mean a new Legend, it also usually means new bugs and issues for the devs to fix.

While the Apex Legends Season 14 update launched smoothly, players have noticed some odd glitches and issues, such as characters having the wrong abilities and Wattson being unable to place her fences.

Now, players have found a bug in Season 14 which puts Heat Shields on the player’s head, which is actually very strong.

apex legends Heat Shield

Reddit user JomzYT put a video up in the Apex Legends subreddit showing off this new Heat Shield glitch, along with the caption “Apparently you can now put heatshields on your head!”

In the video, the player goes to place a Heat Shield down when it miraculously lands on their head and stays with them while they move.

Heat Shields are extremely useful in Apex Legends, as they protect you from the ring and can often save you or your teammate’s life, giving you time to heal up before making your way back into the ring.

Usually, they are placed on the floor, and can not be moved. However, with this glitch, the player is free to move around and remain protected by the Heat Shield, which is stuck to their head.

The fact that the player can move around with the Heat Shield makes this bug very powerful, leaving some in the comments of the post jokingly saying that “it’s a feature,” and a “buff.”

According to one of the users in the comments, this bug is associated with Vantage and could be to do with her winged companion Echo: “This is a thing that happens with Vantage at times, I accidentally pinged myself and my own echo earlier today. Seems like Echo stays physical even when holstered, this leaves one question. Rampart turret on Echo?”

Perhaps the Heat Shield was attached to Echo, as the player had not called the bat out. This has players reminiscing about similar bugs with Crypto and his drone: “Oh gosh, I remember when we had that bug with Crypto. That was funny, flying around on your turret shooting at people.”

Although it doesn’t seem like a major issue, Respawn will likely get this patched up as soon as possible. For more on Apex Legends, check out what NICKMERCS had to say about the Valkyrie nerfs in Season 14.
