Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew – Isle of Penance / Badges

Logbook → Islands

Contains Spoilers!!!

This guide describes how to obtain most (more under Info) badges for Isle of Penance.


Some badges are so straight forward that they’re not specified in this guide:

  • Back To the Marley (Use all Tears)
  • Choose your landing (Use all landing spots)
  • First Step (Finish the mission)
  • Just Leave Them Be (Don’t attack the Kindred)
  • I Don’t Go Up There (Don’t set foot in or on any of the towers)

Island Badges

Chain Reaction

Kill a Custodes with an environment kill so his death turns 4 guards catatonic

For this, I recommend taking 1 or 2 crewmates that can easily lure guards away (It is possible with Gaëlle alone, since her Firecracker skill has a fast enough cooldown to use again while the guards are still on the lured location) and one random teammate that will send of the crate that kills the Custodes.

While the Commisarius is already in the Castodes’ radius and one of the Acolytes is patroling inside it at times, you have to lure the 2 Acolytes that are standing right at the doors.

Swift Penance

Kill all guards within 8 minutes

This one isn’t quite as hard as the 3-minute one on New Krucbury. But for now this will be a flaw in this guide. I tried to come up with a strategy, I just tried it and actually achieved it on the first try (with something like 7:56). So until I come up with a definite guide for this, I recommend either taking some time and trying or looking up a walkthrough on youtube, normally these games have some great speedrunners that show how to do stuff like this.

Nobody Leaves

Kill the guard on the Inquisition ship

Fire In the Hole

Throw Gaëlle’s Firecracker down the soul urn shaft

Piling On

Throw a guard down the body chute

This one seems bugged, but it still works. What you have to do is, take the body, walk down the chute as far as possible (entry is inside the walls, right behind the little house) and then throw the body down on the ground.

Bone and Fingers

Our Own Way Up and Nobody Likes Doors

Don’t use any ladders or ivies and Don’t use any doors/gates

I put these together, because they can easily be done together, with the combination of Gaëlle and Quentin. Instead of climbing, shoot your mates and then fish Gaëlle with Quentin’s Treasure Rod. Instead of going through a door, shoot your mates over the walls and repeat with Quentin. It takes only a little of practice to master this strategy, but it’s extremely helpful, especially for those kind of badges.

Peaceful Beach

Do not attack any guard outside of the main fort

This should be quite easy and understandable. You are only allowed to kill guards inside the forts walls. If you choose the Gloomy Beach landing spot, you actually only have to distract a single guard to get into the Fort. Be careful when you’re about to finish the mission. You can attack the Custodes, but still not anyone else.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
