There are a few categories of secrets in Stray, one of them is collecting Badges. They can be considered collectibles and our guide contains information on how to unlock all badges. You will learn during which stages they become available and what is required to obtain them.
Stage: The Slums
Collectible description: This badge is a reward for delivering 8 pieces of Sheet Music to Morusque in the slums. They're one of the types of collectibles available in the game, and we've described their locations on the Sheet Music page.
Stage: The Slums Part 2
Collectible description: This badge is obtained automatically. You will receive it from Momo as you leave the slums in chapter 6 on your way to the Dead End and The Sewers.
What needs to be done: When in machine village, you heed to talk to Malo . You can find him on the upper levels of the village - he will ask you to find and deliver 3 plants. You can approach them in any order.
Yellow Plant is hidden next to the bar. You have to jump down onto the pipe shown in the screenshot.
Purple Plant is found on a tree that you can climb, at the lower levels of the village (screenshot 1). Follow the path laid out by the branches to find the item (screenshot 2)
Red Plant is found below the village. To get to that area, find a mahjong table with two robots. There is a bucket (elevator) near it (screenshot 1) Use it to descend downstairs. Once you reach the bottom, follow the barrels to reach bushes with red plants (screenshot 2)
After getting all the plants, return to the robot. Simply fork them over to the robot by choosing them from your inventory. You'll be rewarded with a Badge.
Collectible description: This badge is stored in a safe in one of the shops in Midtown.
After reaching the main part of Midtown, locate the shop on the right with the client machine in front of it, which we've pictured in the screenshot.
Hop onto the counter and then jump inside the store to start exploring it. The safe is on the top shelf in the store (picture above).
You will obtain the badge immediately after opening the safe.
Collectible description: Your only chance to obtain this badge is while going through the factory in order to obtain batteries. You will meet the worker who lost their keys. They will ask for help in finding them.
You have to continue on and go through the locations where you have to avoid Sentinels.
The area you need to pay attention to is the one where you have to hide behind the moving cargo (screenshot no. 1). Near its end, don't head to the next room, but instead jump on the barrels on the right to reach the dark corner to the righ. There you'll find the Worker Keys pictured in screenshot no. 2.
Afterwards, use the same path to return to the employee. Avoiding the Sentinels will be more difficult, but you can try to run and hide to prevent them from spotting you while searching the area. The badge is a reward for delivering the lost keys (select them from your inventory during the conversation).
Collectible description: This badge is in a well-hidden cell in the main, generally accessible part of Midtown. Examine the alley next to the clothing store - we've pictured it in the screenshot above.
Continue jumping on higher ledges and protruding objects here. Reach one of the highest roofs and locate a small hole in the wall of the building. Squeeze through the bars.
You will find yourself in the cell - you have to examine the inactive robot.
