There are many mysteries to solve in Disco Elysium, including the confusing disappearance of your footwear.

In this guide, we’ll be looking at where you can find your missing shoes and your detective’s badge which you’ve unfortunately misplaced due to mysterious circumstances.

You can tackle Disco Elysium’s quests in various ways depending on what skills you choose, so there’s often more than one way to go about things.

Some choices can abruptly end your game, so remember to use a bit of logic alongside your skillset when making decisions.

If you’re new to Disco Elysium, consider this your only spoiler warning.

Where to find your missing badge

To find your missing badge, you’ll need to wait until the water lock is fixed on day three. Before then, it’s impossible to find, so carry on with different activities until then.

When the day finally rolls around, you’ll be able to find it in your car north of the bridge. It’s half sunk in the ice near the pawnshop it flew over – good job.

Where to find your missing shoes

Congrats; you were so shitfaced last night that you lost your shoes. Fortunately for you, they aren’t so difficult to track down. You can interact with the green dots to gather evidence of what went on the previous evening.

Having high Visual Calculus will benefit you in this instance as you assess the damage around you. One shoe can be located on the rack near the door. Your tie can be found on the ceiling fan, and your shirt and jacket are also closeby. Pants are optional.

The next shoe is easy to miss, though you can choose to ignore finding it if you’re not bothered about being fully dressed. You’ll notice there’s a smashed window to the left. Depending on your Logic and Visual Calculus skills, you’ll be able to determine that either you or someone else threw your shoe through the window.

Head on out to the balcony to find your shoe and complete your detective look. Now, head on out to retrace the rest of your steps and solve a murder.
