Disco Elysium Wiki

Fairweather T-500 Cuirass is an item in Disco Elysium.


This vitreous enamel cuirass fits snugly and redistributes kinetic energy across its countless white plates. Amazingly, it fits under your coat! And it also makes pretty porcelain sounds when shaken.


  • Wear the cuirass to the tribunal to shake off the shot from Ruud Hoenkloewen. Without it, the detective will have to dodge the shot if he can.
  • Collect the cuirass along with the other three pieces of Fairweather armor to earn an achievement.


You'll only have two shots at this, so come prepared. First pass a passive perception check when talking to Gary in the reeds or back at the Whirling-in-Rags. Then pass an active composure check and Gary will admit to stealing the armour and give the detective an opportunity to confiscate it. Once Gary leaves the Whirling-in-Rags, the cuirass will become inaccessible if it hasn't already been taken from him. To trigger the conversation branch that contains these checks, you will need to have found the mug in the locked trash container behind the Whirling-in-Rags, and confront Gary about it.
