How to Complete Investigate the Suspicious Toys in Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3)

Investigate a crime in Baldur's Gate!

While heading toward Baldur’s Gate, you may encounter Arfur Gregorio in Rivington, who’s hiding a dangerous secret in his basement. Exploring this area will trigger the Investigate the Suspicious Toys side quest where you must find the culprit of the exploding toys being sent to the refugees.

This Baldur’s Gate 3 mission is quite lengthy and requires you to visit several locations.

BG3 Investigate the Suspicious Toys Quest Guide

You can start the Investigate the Suspicious Toys side mission by exploring Arfur’s basement. This can be accessed through the house entrance at the coordinates X:13, Y: -95.

If you detect Arfur Gregorio’s thoughts when speaking with him in front of his home, he will give you a hint about the underground area. As a result, you can clear out the debris in the room at the top-right corner of the house to discover a hatch.

When exploring Arfur’s basement, you must be careful with the numerous firework traps. I recommend using a unit with a high Perception to help you notice the wires that can set off the traps. Luckily, you can jump past these obstacles and reach the working space in the southeast part of the room to progress further in the Investigate the Suspicious Toys mission.

You must unlock the Heavy Chest on the left side of the desk by passing a Dexterity Check. Inside, you will discover some gold and a Blackmail Letter that you must read.

Your next objective is to head to the Requisitioned Barn northwest of Arfur’s Mansion to convince Manip Nestor to let you examine the donations by passing a Persuasion Check. Once the Flaming Fist agrees, you can locate a box full of teddy bears on the north side of the barn (X:82 Y:-108).

The toys will make a noise when you approach the box. If you pass an Investigation Check, you will get the option to disarm the trap, but if not you should be prepared to take some damage. Regardless of your success in disabling the explosive, you must speak with Manip Nestor again to tell him about the suspicious toys.

Afterward, you will be tasked with locating Arfur Gregorio in Sharess’ Caress in Wyrm’s Crossing. He will be watching Queen Rhol dancing on the stage inside the southernmost room in the building (X: 25 Y:74). You must confront the man and gain information about the source of the explosives.

Since Arfur is a coward, it doesn’t require a lot of intimidation to make him spill out his secrets for the Investigate the Suspicious Toys mission. He will tell you a secret password you can use to gain access to the hidden explosive store.

Your next destination is an inconspicuous building south of the Sorcerous Sundries in the Lower City (X:2 Y:-123). You must give the password to one of the people inside Felogyr’s Fireworks, and you will gain access to the second floor. Here, you can also buy a Smokepowder Bomb for 60 gold from Clerk Tamara.

Unfortunately, the only way to complete the mission is to kill everyone inside the building. The people running Felogyr’s Fireworks are actively working with Gortash. It’s unlikely that they will stop working on their dangerous business.

It’s recommended to use the fireworks in the shop to your advantage, or else the shopkeepers will certainly use them against you. Use fire damage on the barrels and racks of fireworks to cause some hefty explosions, but beware of their blast radius — you don’t want to get caught in the fray.

You’ve now completed the Investigate the Suspicious Toys side quest, so check our other Baldur’s Gate 3 guides on Twinfinite. I recommend reading our best companions article if you want to know which characters to keep on your team.
