Esprit de Corps is a skill under the Psyche attribute in Disco Elysium.

Description[ | ]

Connect to Station 41. Understand cop culture.

Cool for: Cops, Cop-Aficionados, Pretend-Cops

Esprit de Corps is the very spirit of policing: the cop-geist. It enables you to understand your blue-souled sisters and brothers – not only by picking up subtle signals from your partner, but by witnessing flash-sideways scenes as they play out in your precinct.

At high levels, you’ll be the very heart of the police force: not only willing and able but obliged to take a bullet for your partner. However, without Esprit de Corps you’ll be flying blind, unable to understand discreet remarks colleagues make in high-stakes situations; remarks that might just save your life.

Explanation[ | ]

Unlike most other skills, Esprit de Corps does not have an explicit downside to it, though it also rarely gives tangible gameplay benefits. As a skill, it is useful for understanding the intentions of other members of the RCM (as well as Cuno if the player recruits him), as it grants access to their internal thoughts. Similarly to Shivers (albeit in a far less abstract manner) it also supplies plenty of information regarding Harry's forgotten coworkers, both in and out of Martinaise.
