This is the mystery item the merchant sells for three energy drinks. The merchant is located right of the Guardian Companion.

To get the drinks you must interact with working vending machines. There are a total of four vending machines scattered across the slums.

One is opposite the musician Morusque, left of the Guardian.


Another can be found near the couch and TV lounge area on the rooftops.

There is also an operating vending machine past Seamus' house (recognisable for the bright yellow glow of its lights).

The last is on a balcony above Rozey, the Companion watching TV in an alleyway near the laundry. Take an immediate left from the alley you entered the slums in, and he'll be sitting watching TV.
