Let’s first have a brief look at all the Emotional Baggage locations in Strike City:

The Suitcase

The Suitcase will be the first collectible that you can sort out within the level. You’ll find the tag at the start of Kingpin Express. After fixing the first bowling lane and riding it down, you will land on a rooftop filled with green slime. Once here, go to the far end of the rooftop.

You should spot a ‘Freshly Brewed Yeast’ truck to the right of the next bowling lane entrance. Appetizing, we know. Go behind the truck, and the Suitcase tag will be here for the taking.

You will come across the bag later in the level when you get to a construction site. This will be just before entering the ‘Lovers Lane’ track. On the ground floor of the site, you will see two germ workers standing next to a single line of bowling pins at the far end. Crash through the pins while on a bowling ball, and you will find yourself underneath another bowling lane. The Suitcase will be sitting here, desperate to be sorted.

The Duffle Bag

The next Emotional Baggage collectible in Strike City is the Duffle Bag. The tag is not very straightforward to find, unless you make a very specific mistake. Let us elaborate. At one point, you will reach a section of the level where gravity readjusts. Here, you will have to make your way across a now-horizontal “Joe’s” sign.

Once you reach the “O,” fall down through its center. Gravity will readjust once again, and you will land on another rooftop. You should see the Duffle Bag tag here which you can secure after taking care of some enemies.

The Duffle Bag itself can be found in the earlier parts of the levels. Therefore, you will have to secure this on revisiting Strike City. In the Downtown Center, make your way to the roof where you came across the first bowling ball polishing machine. On the other side of this machine, in a narrow corridor, will be the Duffle Bag.
