Lagniappes are collectibles you find throughout your time roaming Derceto Manor and beyond. There are a total of 45 Lagniappes, separated into 15 sets of 3. Completing sets earns you different bonuses such as more story info, an optional weapon, and even alternate endings.

What’s more, these collectibles span the entirety of the game, so there might be some slight spoilers. So if you want to have a fresh experience for your first playthrough, you might wanna revisit this guide once you’ve beat the game. Some collectibles are earned just by playing the story, while others require you to venture off the beaten path and search for more.

We’ll be sure to provide you with an image of the map when we can, of course, some of the Lagniappes we talk about are in locations without a map. Be sure to pay attention to which chapter we found them in, as well as which character you have to play as when applicable. But with that out of the way, let’s dive straight in and take a look at all Lagniappes locations in Alone in the Dark.

Halfway through Chapter 2, you’ll be able to open wedged doors around the house. One of these wedged doors is located in the Stair Hall on the second floor. Open the door and enter into the hallway before you enter the Mezzanine.

Heading downstairs to the Grand Parlor is what you would normally do, instead you should continue left around the Mezzanine until you reach the door to the other hallway. The Beignet Lagniappe is located to the left of the door.

Syringe

  • All Lagniappes In Alone In The Dark Syringe Location

The Rat Poison Lagniappe is the very first collectible players find in a playthrough. At the beginning of Chapter 1, as you’re exploring the basement before you let Emily/Carnby inside from upstairs, you’ll have the option to go left in the kitchen to head upstairs.

However, if you enter the door to the right, you’ll find the Rat Poison in the right corner of the room.

Instead, turn around and there should be an item you can pick up on the ground. Grab it, and you’ll have the Toy Talisman Lagniappe.

Box of Biscuits

Nurse’s Watch

The Gazing Statuette is the only Lagniappe you’ll find at the Oil Rig, and it’s a bit hidden. After you break through the red gate, you’ll see a few houses that you can loot, with the large Oil Rig over to your right.

However, if you go towards the water on the left side of the house, you start to hear music. Follow the music by passing through wooden pallets, and you’ll find the source inside a building. Along with a monster that you have to dispatch, the Gazing Statuette is on a table in the middle of the room.

Mummified Cat

  • All Lagniappes In Alone In The Dark Mummified Cat
  • All Lagniappes In Alone In The Dark Mummified Cat Location

On your way to finding the broken plates in Chapter 2, you must head into the Kitchen Garden. You can grab this collectible at any time, but we recommend grabbing it before solving the puzzle here.

In the first section of Gallatin Street, you’ll need to move a crane to get into the shipping company warehouse.

At the end of this walkway on a box, is the Typewriter Ribbon you are searching for.

At the end of that sequence, you’ll have a smaller underground section to go through before eventually reaching the stairs back to the Chapel.

Toe Tag

  • All Lagniappes In Alone In The Dark Toe Tag
  • All Lagniappes In Alone In The Dark Toe Tag Location

The last Lagniappe of the set is arguably the most gut-wrenching one to find, and only Emily can find it. Once you truly deal with Emily’s trauma in Chapter 4, you’ll find the Toe Tag connected to the foot of a familiar soldier in the locked-off section of the Infirmary.

Walk past the wall and the Tessellated Shard is on a table next to a light source.

Ju-ju
