There’s a lot of ground to cover in Disco Elysium, and it’s all made easier with a map. Thankfully, finding a map is pretty simple as you can get your hands on one in the first few minutes of the game.
Where to get a map
You can easily find a map to purchase in the little bookshop beside the Whirling-in-Rags hotel. The Whirling-in-Rags is the hotel you find yourself in at the start of the game. From your room, go out onto the balcony, being sure to collect the coins.
Go down the stairs and out through the front door after speaking with Kim Kitsuragi. Go across the cobblestones to the boarded up building. There is a little girl outside called Annette. Head inside the store.
Once inside the bookstore, climb the stairs on the right and move along the balcony. Up on the back wall will be a collection of maps. Interact with the maps and ask if any are for sale. You can purchase the Martinaise map for 90 cents. Make sure you know how to get some money – known as réal in Disco Elysium – as you’ll need it for all kinds of things, like paying your bar tab.
The reason this map is so cheap is that it is out-of-date, and doesn’t really offer a lot of detail. However, this is the best your poor detective can likely do at this current time. At least you’ll be able to see the major landmarks around you.
With the map purchased, you can look at it in the Journal. Click the Journal button and select Map. You will be able to see the Martinaise Waterfront, the Fishermen Shacks, and the Church.
Now that you’ve found a map in Disco Elysium, it should be a bit easier to navigate the world. Be sure to keep it locked to Shacknews as we dive deeper into the mysteries of Disco Elysium.

Eventually you HAVE to get a map and the game tells you exactly where to get it.
I'm really perturbed I can't finish the game.
