L.A. Noire Complete Case Guide – Patrol


L.A. Noire is a great game and getting 5 stars on all cases can be a real challenge. To aid you in this challenge, here is a complete guide to all the cases on the patrol desk. Technically, you do not get a star rating for the cases completed on the patrol desk, but for those who still want to find all the clues and get all their interview questions right, this guide will help you. There are also 13 newspapers that can be found throughout the game, all of them within locations accessed through the cases. For this reason, they are included in the guide. This guide is designed to be follow step-by-step. Following steps out of sequence could result in you being unable to 5 star a case. For example, finding a specific clue can trigger a cut scene which will take you away form a crime scene, meaning you can’t find any of the other clues there. Try to follow the guide as closely as you can so you don’t have to repeat cases later.

Upon Reflection

Alleyway Crime Scene

Newspaper: Go near the back of the alley and look on some crates beside the stairs on the right.
Bloodstain: On the back wall of the alley, check the bloodstain on the door.
Smith & Wesson Gun: Near the bloodstain on the door, just to the left of it, you will get a vibration telling you there is a clue. Press A and you will see a gun on the roof. Follow your partner around the corner and you can climb a drainpipe to get up onto the roof and collect the gun. When examining the gun, turn it over so you can see the left side of the gun. Here you will find a serial number.


Gunstore Ledger: After speaking to the store clerk you will be given access to the ledger. Open it up and find an entry with the serial number S71893.
Objective: Investigate Shroeder’s apartment.

Shroeder’s Apartment
