LA Noire Golden Reel locations - Find all 50 Golden Reels for the Hollywoodland Trophy / Achievement

Maps and screens of all Golden Reels.

LA Noire's Golden Reel locations are one of several collectables out in the game's open world of 1940s Los Angeles.

If you're interested in help elsewhere, our LA Noire guide and walkthrough is well worth a visit.

LA Noire's Golden Reels explained

Tucked away around LA you'll find fifty gold film reels; why they're there is hard to say, but this isn't known as Lala-land for nothing.

See the gold disc? That's what you're looking for.

While you may stumble across one or two by accident most of them are very well hidden, so to save you scouring every square inch of the place we've provided a handy map of all the locations, along with screenshots showing exactly where they're located.

We've tried to arrange them in a vaguely sensible north-west to south-east order to make it easy to find which one is where - if you're unsure which ones you're missing check your stats on the Rockstar Social Club website.

Collecting all 50 will earn you the Hollywoodland trophy.
