If you're interested in help elsewhere, our LA Noire guide and walkthrough is well worth a visit. Otherwise, here's how to solve these cases.

Upon Reflection

Life as a beat cop in LA is fine, but you have ambitions and a desire to go above and beyond the call of duty - perhaps showing a little initiative will do you good.

Location: Alleyway Crime Scene

As soon as you start, look at the crates on the right of the alley to find your first newspaper - there are thirteen to collect, all found during cases.


Now head to the far end of the alley to investigate further.


  • Bloodstain on the door.

Head left, and you'll see Reflection of Gun on Roof.

Head behind the brick building to your left and climb the ladder to find Smith & Wesson Revolver. Examine it closely to get more information.


Location: Gun Store


  • Gun Store Ledger

Location: Schroeder's Apartment

Look at the mailboxes to discover Schroeder is in apartment #2. When you enter the apartment you'll be engaged in a brawl.


  • Schroeder's Notebook in the dresser drawer.

Armed and Dangerous

Another day on the beat, but it's going to be filled with danger and excitement.

This is about as simple as they come: shoot the baddies.

Next case: LA Noire - Buyer Beware

Chase your suspect on foot. He'll head down the alley - keep to your right to avoid the garbage truck that backs into the alley - and then follow him to the roof. Eventually he'll be cornered, and you'll engage in another brawl.
