L.A. Noire Newspaper Locations

You’re tracking down L.A. Noire‘s film reels and you’ve started to map the city’s landmarks, you’re unlocking everything that’s hidden with our Cheats List and solving all the cases with our L.A. Noire Walkthru. But there’s still more to find hidden in this massive game.

Scattered throughout 1940s Los Angeles are 13 hidden newspapers to locate, all of which give Cole Phelps information about L.A. and clues that can open up additional cases. We’re in the process of finding and documenting all 13 newspapers, along with the cases they unlock; and we’ll have all that info listed here just as soon as our diligent walkthrough team pushes through this massive game.

Only problem is I’ve already played through the game. I’m missing just one. I need the location of them on the map not where they are during a mission….

If you’re done with the game and you’re missing newspapers, go to CASES on your main menu and check the cases. Cases that have newspapers will have a newspaper icon. If it’s gray, you don’t have it. If it’s bold/black, you already found it. Then come here to the list and check where it is according to what you’re missing. Play the case again (selecting it from the same CASES menu) and collect your missing newspaper.
