    Patrol Desk

    Upon Reflection

    1. Welcome to L.A. NOIRE, where everyone has something to hide. Start your journey through the LAPD’s Patrol Desk by driving down the road and turning right, then left. Look for the yellow flag icon.
    2. Arriving at the crime scene, you’ll need to start your search for evidence. During evidence gathering sequences, you’ll need to find objects that might pertain to the mystery. You’ll also discover that most of the things Cole Phelps can interact with are totally useless. The controller will rumble whenever you’re near an interactive object.
    3. Down the alley, your partner will comment on some junk. Interact with the newsaper to his left to discover your first collectable. Each newspaper holds a piece of the story’s puzzle, so try to find as many as you can. You’ll usually find newspapers while searching for evidence.
    4. Your partner will ask you to look at the murder scene. Walk over to inspect the bloody door and ground. Nothing useful here, keep moving on.
    5. Continue left down the alleyway. You’ll be prompted to look up at the window while under the blinking light. In the window’s reflection, you’ll spot a gun.
    6. To reach the roof, continue down the alley and turn left, following the brick building around. A lamp shines light down near a drainpipe. Use the drainpipe to climb onto the roof and find the murderweapon.
    7. Pick up the murderweapon and begin to search it for points of interest. Move the left thumbstick around in a circle until you feel a rumble, hold the thumbstick in whichever direction is rumbling to discover a clue.
    8. In the case of the gun, hold the thumbstick right until Phelps lists off the make and model of the revolver.
    9. Afterwards, interact with the pistol again for another clue. As the game continues, you’ll find ledgers and other clues that will need to be opened and searched.
    10. Back out of the search and climb back down the drainpipe.
    11. Return to your police car. Phelps will remove a list of locations in his notebook. Select the Gun Store to set it as your waypoint location.
    12. Drive to the waypoint to arrive at the gunstore. You can enter any building with gold door handles.
    13. Inside, after a short discussion, you’ll have a chance to search the ledger. Open the ledger, and look on the second page for an item listed as “27, 4″ barrel, polished nickel, pearl grip”. Select the entry to discover the name and address of the gun’s owner.
    14. Jump into your car and select Schroeder’s Apartment, it’s your next location.
    15. At Schroeder’s Apartment, enter through the door left of the storefront. Check the mailbox to find his apartment number – it’s apartment 2. Find his apartment upstairs, first door on the right.
    16. Time for a brawl. Schroeder isn’t tough, follow the on-screen prompts and punch him a few times in a row. Tap Block, then attack for a powerful counter-attack.
    17. After defeating Ralph, search the apartment for clues. The only useful information here is in the open drawer, just left of the kitchen door. Investigate the object and turn the page twice.
    18. That’s all she wrote, you’ve completed your first training case.
  • Armed and Dangerous

    1. Drive down the road, turning right to find your waypoint. You’ll be driving right into a gunfight.
    2. A short cutscene plays, and ends with Phelps behind a truck armed with a shotgun. A few of the thugs will run inside. One will stay outside shooting, blast him from your truck.
    3. When your partner runs for the front door, follow him. Take cover on the right side of the entrance doors, where more crooks will take potshots at you. Wait for them to show their heads before popping out of cover to shoot them.
    4. Once everyone on the first floor is down, another bad guy will take cover on the second floor. Shoot him to complete this action-packed second case.
  • Warrants Outstanding

    1. Time for a chase! Hold the run trigger to chase the palooka down the alleyway. Keep an eye on your mini-map and follow the red dot if you’re turned around or lose him. In many chase sequences, you’ll have the option to shoot the crook.
    2. Run down the alley and hop the fence. You’ll automatically jump over obstacles and gaps while running, you just need to make sure you stay on the bad guy’s tail.
    3. Turn right after jumping the fence and run forward until Bowers takes a ladder on the building to your left. When chasing enemies, keep your distance on ladders – if you’re too close, they’ll kick you. Get kicked twice, and you’ll fall.
    4. Keep running on the fire escape, all the way up, until you reach the roof. Bowers will climb a drainpipe up, keep the chase going. Bowers will stop to kick you in the face once, take it like a man and keep climbing.
    5. Follow Bowers as he jumps, you’ll land on a shack. If you jump to the left of his leap, you’ll land on a lower roof, where you’ll need to climb up a ladder to continue following him.
    6. Make one more long jump off a building and follow the crook into closed-off section of the roof behind a billboard.
    7. Bowers attacks as you chase him into the area. Fist fight the jerk until he drops to complete another case.
  • Buyer Beware

    1. It’s time for a real investigation. Start by searching the body. Search the right pocket of his jacket to find a clue. Scroll down the paper. That’s all you’re going to get from the stiff.
    2. Step over the body, you’ll find shell casings on the sidewalk near the street. That’s another clue found.
    3. Walk down the street and search the trash bin for a gun. Manipulate the gun diagonally right and up to find the make and model.
    4. Follow the cop to talk to a witness. He’ll point out another witness to the incident – a girl inside the shop. Walk inside to talk to her.
    5. This is your first interrogation. During interrogations, you’ll be talking to a person of interest. In your notebook, you’ll have questions. Select a question and the person of interest will answer. You’ll be able to reply to each answer by deciding whether the person of interest is telling the truth or lying.
    6. After every answer, you’ll be able to choose one of three options; truth, doubt, and lie. Choose truth when you think the person of interest is telling the truth, they’ll be more cooperative and provide more information if the person is telling the truth.
    7. If you think a person is lying or not telling the complete truth, select Lie – but only when you have proof to the contrary. If a person of interest is lying or not telling the complete truth, but you have no proof that says otherwise, select Doubt.
    8. If you’re unsure of what option to select, open your notebook and use an intuition point. Intuition points are awarded for gaining experience points for completing investigations or street crimes.
    9. For every interrogation, this guide will list the person of interest, the questions you ask, followed by the response to their answer.

    15. Reading faces of different people will help you discover lies or partial truths. Remember to open your notebook and study your clues before accusing someone of lying.
    16. Now that Clovis Galetta is done, return to your car. Select Eagleson’s Gun Store or Hartfield’s Jewelry Store.
    17. While driving the busy streets, turn on your siren to clear your path.
