This walkthrough is freakin awful. It's more like a synopsis of the story. Doesn't help me solve cases at all.
Crime doesn't pay. Our L.A. Noire Walkthrough will show you how to solve crimes, catch liars, and provide tips for cleaning up the streets.
The Black Caesar
Roy Earle is your new partner while you're a member of the Vice Narcotics desk. For your first case you'll be examining the bodies of two dead dope fiends. On the body of Tyree you'll find a strange radio station note with "275 FM". In Lamont's wallet is a ticket for some kind of payout. Other evidence of interest include the strange doodle on the table and the weighted Black Caesar popcorn cup resting on the kitchen counter. Underneath this cup a taped box of morphine.
Your next stop is the Black Caesar food stand. The cook, Fleetwood Morgan, will make a run for it. Chase after him and beat him down with a standard block-counter hit combo to bring him to justice. Search the food stand to find a box filled with more drugs and a horn case with more pay outs for an "Ottie's", along with a ticket issued by Jermaine Jones.
Doubt Fleetwood and he will name Jones as the drug distributor. Head to the nearest phone and get Jones' address from R and I.
Inside Jones' place plug in the radio station number from before: 275 FM. This will open up Jones' stash filled with money, drugs, and more tickets to a pay out; the radio itself also has a sticker for Ramez Removals. Jones will send his goons after you, so beat them down just like every other fight. Now question Jones about the morphine and Ottie. You don't have much evidence for now, so stick to doubting. You'll gain more info about Ottie, who you will need to visit next.
Travel to Ottie's and search around the area. The main piece of interest is the slot machine in the back. Check the strange doodle again and notice that the sketch is of a cheery, bell, and the word "WIN". Keep using the slot machine and using its hold buttons until gaining this combo. It will open Ottie's stash of drugs and money, linking him to the previous events.
Ottie will make a break for it, so you'll need to pursue him on foot. After tackling him down, you'll return to he's base for questioning. Be warned that Roy will not let you leave, and if you are lacking any evidence you'll be unable to solve this case correctly. Luckily, the testimony and evidence from both Jones and Morgan regarding Ottie's schemes will be enough to get information from him.
All of these will point towards Ramez Removals who has been sending drug filled furnishings to the various suspects. Head to the Removals and you will be required to gun down a fleeing truck. With the next set of suspects stopped, enter the warehouse and walk through the winding maze of crates and boxes.
On the other side will be a long ladder. Climb up to the top and use the crane controls. You can now move several boxes that had been blocking off your earlier route. Position the crane to the left hand side of the room and move the boxes blocking the freezer. Once Roy gives the word, head down and discover the drugs stored in ice.
As you exit the building, Ramez will break free, nab a shotgun, and start a killing spree. Enter back into the warehouse and move very carefully through cover. Ramez will attempt to plug you, but he can be killed with a few easy shots. Your new lead is Polar Bear Ice, so head there next.
At last you'll corner Lenny Finkelstein and his goons. Shoot down the first two gangsters and proceed into the next room. Hide under the bar here and take out the next enemy that is armed with a shotgun. Take this new weapon and use it on the next enemy around the right corner. Now enter the room on the right and kill the next shotgun wielding enemy.
Finally you'll be in the ice room. Take down the two enemies on the ground before moving to the top to face Lenny himself. He will shoot non-stop while you are out of cover, so your only option is to fire back and kill him before you're out of health. Once he's dead, move to the back area to discover the remaining stash of drugs, ending the case.
Buzzboy, right on man.. A a bit of effort on a hifi version of gameFAQs would have been good linked to universal sign-in to Gamespot and gameFAQs.. Pffft as bad as raptr, good idea just sloppy coding and implementation of assests.. Who wants another app that runs on the taskbar signed in sucking up your RAM ...
Yeah, I've gotta say the quality of Gamespot's game guides has really gone downhill over the years. But that's really more of an Industry-wide problem. No one expects to pay for them anymore, and for the general walkthrough type info that you really need a .txt file written by a fellow gamer works just fine. My only question is this: Why did CNET spend the money to buy GameFAQs if they never intended to assimilate it into Gamespot? I mean, its silly to direct users to a different site just for cheat codes and walkthroughs when they've been owned by the same company for over EIGHT YEARS now. I doubt most of the people who come here now even remember when the two sites were separate. tl;dr The GameFAQs Walkthroughs and Cheats should all be a part of Gamespot
quite helpful if you have already played the game but want to get 100% in the missions you have played
This film reel location guide is a joke! Look at the location for The Narrow Margin. A name of a street would be nice!
This isn't a game guide, it just tells you what happens. Was expecting how to get 100% in each section.
xedgorex Yes it does require a lot of attention and a degree of intelligence. Not that I'm saying you lack both lol
Ill write it again ok sorry.. Why would anyone need a guide to this game??? I only played like mmm not even half of it...I didnt like it srry.
shot through the heart i'll play this game but phelps gave love a bad name bad name phelps gave love a bad name , I wanted to see phelps fall in the tar pits and get all black and sticky and then go back to his rusian blues bar tramp so all this and the driving in consideration I will stick by my score of a solid 9 . remember Gamespot is a Good place to be , you'll always find criminals here ! take care guys ......
Zigger21 you are trolling, why does everyone take this sh^& so seriously. Gamer 4 voiced his opinion and you jump him. Let'm speak, if you dont like it done read it.
@johnybutler11 ok now tell me butler bro what exactly did I say that sounded trollish to you? Even if I mentioned cold hard facts its considered trollish these days?
I dont know why you need guide, you can play the game without shooting a weapon by skipping it and driving sequence and you can't even fail an interview and restart the game
@jdt532 Go to google and type in something like LA Noire Traffick Desk guide and it should be in the top links. I know there is 1 site that did an entire guide telling you what to choose during interigations.
@kenthuss There is the pistol, shotgun, and tommy gun which you can get through out the game. The last weapon is the Flame Thrower, which you get in the final mission. After you eliminate the guys in the sewers, You will come across a hallway with the stairs to the right at the end of it and at the top is a door, Go through the door and the Flame Thrower will be there on the right. Once you go down the stairs and go through the rising water, Climb the ladder and go to the left and head down the stairs to kill the guy shooting at you and there you go.
Where are the answers to interviews and interrogations? You know weather the people are telling the truth or lying are if you doubt them and if they are lying what proof do you use to back up the accusation... Without that this guide isn't very useful.
This is fairly useless as a guide to the game. It is little more than an overview of the story and a list of achievements/locations. There are better guides out there including the correct responses in interviews and film locations with pictures.
Couldn't you exactly tell us wich of Eli/Hugo/... 's statements are true,doubtful or a lie? this is a GUIDE ,right?if you could add it,it will be very helpful
@twztid13 YES thank you I am aware that all the information is out there in web land... Two things though, I don't have access to the internet 24/7 and I wasn't wanting to find out the answers without playing the game myself! I was playing it with trial and error methods, all other methods would give me the answers without playing the game properly! Now I have finished it, that maybe the way to do it but I found this way more immersive for me.
@gandalf_storm You're supposed to throw the child molester into prison. And yes, you're supposed to send the wrong guy... in every Homicide case.
@punksterdaddy you know you can go to www.gamefaqs.com and look all that stuff up without having to do all that work on your own, right?
i sent moller down and got a 1 star rating wtf ? - and moaning the notes about his daughter being a orphan, was I supposed to send the wrong guy down for this ?
@jonnybutler11 Smart, it isn't... Tedious, it most certainly is... That's no problem, I just thought I would share what I have been doing while playing the game. Just to see if that would be any help to you, I knew it was going to be a long shot because there has been a few times I just wanted to play through without going back and re-doing the interviews again but now I am glad that I just kept with it... even though it is really tedious! Hey, thanks for your offer of help, I may just take you up on it sometime? I am like you, with the FAQs idea but the nearest I have came to is by answering Qs on here at gamespot. The problem with that though is that most people have answered before I have even read them myself! lol Peace Out
@punksterdaddy lol thanks :P that's actually real thoughtfull of you... your method is smart, too bad it's a bit tedious. I'll be sure to try it out within the next few days if the guide doesn't get updated. till then I'll just work on my bioshock 2 and rdr platinums. ps if you ever need some help with anything I'd be just as glad to help. I've thought of writing FAQs in the past and have never gotten around to it but if you want any help I'd be glad to give you a hand
@jonnybutler11 Okay so you have beaten the game and are now after all the trophies? I have been writing down all the answers as I go in order to achieve the best possible mark for each case solved. I presume that you haven't done that? Let me know how or if I can help in any way and I will get back to you with some answers. This is what I have done up until now. Every interview conducted (after the 3rd or 4th) I started writing down the person you are questioning, the case name and the correct answers given. When Cole asks a question, then you have 3 choices as you know? Take down the correct line of questioning = True, Doubt or Lie... and make sure you write down in numerical order given in your notebook... I am meaning... Always ask the top question (in your notebook) and write down in that order T,D or L. If you choose the wrong answer during questioning, then you can switch it off and reload back to the start of that scene but unfortunately if at a home or somewhere then you will need to do a quick search again of the home you are in first. This is what I started doing and so far most of my cases have all been 5 star rated, the others that weren't was due to my useless driving skills (or lack of). Hope this is of some help to you? If not then let me know? I'll be happy to help.
I think the access to desks is where you select Cases in the main menu where Resume/new etc is, it will prompt you to choose which case file you want, then u can choose which case and replay it for a better star rating or free roam for the reels and the street crime cases and finish any of them which you didn't get the first time you were going through
