L.A. Noire Achievement Guide


30 Points 
Silver Trophy
Find and inspect all gold film reels.

These golden film reels are scattered all over the city and are incredibly tricky to find. 

Thankfully we already have a guide that will point you to the location of each and every one!



15 Points 
Bronze Trophy
At Elysian Fields, outwit Leland Monroe when discussing his developments or advertising campaign.

During "A Walk In Elysian Fields" you will eventually get the opportunity to question Leland Monroe in his office about the houses that are being constructed. To get him to spill the goods that you need for the achievement/trophy, select Lie for the second question about the promotions and show the promotional flyer to prove he is lying. Viola, it’s all yours.


Johnny On The Spot

30 Points 
Silver Trophy
Respond to 20 street crime cases.

While solving cases, the dispatcher will call periodically with street crimes. When accepted by pressing the A/X button, head to the yellow running man on the map and complete the crime. Once you have solved 20 of the cases, Johnny on the Spot is all yours.


Keep A Lid On

15 Points 
Bronze Trophy
Complete a brawl without losing your hat as an LAPD Detective or Investigator.

There are numerous times throughout the campaign where things will come to fisticuffs. I found that the fights earlier in the game were easier to keep your hat on and likewise more difficult later on in the game. When you first get into the brawl, immediately pull the left trigger to get into your stance and then dodge the first punch. Once dodged, then start laying the beat down on your opponent. Grapple with Y/Triangle after a couple hits and then finish him off, all while keeping your lid on.


Lead Foot

15 Points 
Bronze Trophy
Keep the needle above 80mph for more than ten seconds while driving.

While this can be done is the regular police car that you get in your first case as a detective, it is easier to do with quicker cars. Find one of the hidden cars marked with a ? on the map and then put the pedal to the metal. The easier places to sustain the high speed are in areas where there is less traffic, like the south east of LA, as well, try to head down hills and avoid traffic at all costs. While there is no speedometer, you’ll have to judge when your car is at top speed and keep it flying across the black top for 10 seconds.



Points 80 
Gold Trophy
Find and inspect 95% of all clues.

For this, you’ll need to keep an eye open for all the clues in the game- at each and every crime scene during each of the 21 cases. You are able to miss a few, but you really should be going for all of them to make sure you hit the 95% mark. At each crime scene, be sure you keep collecting all clues until the music stops, indicating that you have found them all.

Check out our complete guide to getting five stars on all the cases, including all the clues, right here!


Miles On The Clock

15 Points 
Bronze Trophy
Drive more than 194.7 miles.

This is a whole lot of driving. To get it easiest, simply drive to each and every location that you need to go to. You can keep checking your progress in the statistics menu to see how close you are getting. Once you get this achievement/trophy, you can start having your partner drive everywhere because you’ll most likely be sick and tired of driving by then. If you complete the game and still haven’t reached it, you can go into the free roam mode of any of the case desks and just toot around until you get it.


Moth To A Flame

70 Points 
Gold Trophy
Complete all cases on the Arson desk.

This achievement/Trophy will pop once you complete the game.


No Rest For The Wicked

15 Points
Bronze Trophy
Complete all cases on the Vice desk.

Once you complete all the cases for the Vice Squad throughout the campaign, you will get this
