Introduction:

Welcome to the L.A Noire: The VR Case Files Trophy Guide!
This game is a rated 18 dark and violent crime thriller set in 1940’s Los Angeles. You play as Detective Cole Phelps to solve brutal crimes, plots and conspiracies inspired by real life cases from 1947 Los Angeles, one of the most corrupt and violent times in L.A history.

L.A Noire: The VR Case files plucks 7 cases from the original Rockstar classic L.A Noire, and has rebuilt them specifically for virtual reality to create new layers of immersion and realism to this atmospheric crime thriller.

Roadmap:

Step 1: Play through the Game, grabbing the collectables along the way.
Enjoy the game and grab the 35 collectables along the way unless you want to replay all the cases again afterwards. If you want to complete the platinum in the quickest way then follow the full text walkthrough written below. But feel free to play blind as there is level/case select so nothing is truly missable, and you can just refer to this guide when you want a hand. I do recommend you at least look up the interview/interrogation sequences written below though, as if you make mistakes you will have to replay the scene which can take a lot of time. Also It will of course be much quicker to know exactly where to go and look to pick up clues and collectables instead of hunting around everywhere until you finally find things that enable you to progress, so all this info and answers and everything you need to know to complete the game and get all trophies is outlined below in this guide. In this step do keep in mind to keep working on the 4 cumulative trophies, which are for picking up 100 objects, getting 30 headshots, land 50 slaps, and driving for 19.47 miles. if any don’t unlock they can be easily finished off after the game.

In this step you will earn these trophies:
Gold The City Of Angels
Bronze The Straight Dope
Bronze One For The File
Silver Golden Boy
Bronze The Plot Thickens
Gold Back To The 40’s
Bronze Keep A Lid On
Gold High Flyer
Bronze Soup In The Pot

Bronze Spare A Dime
Gold Well Read Individual
Gold Let Me See Some ID
Silver Home Run
Gold Wherever I Lay My Hat

Step 2: After completing the game, miscellaneous trophy clean-up.
There are 4 cumulative trophies that if they haven’t unlocked already, you can easily just mop them up now after completing the game. They are for picking up 100 objects, getting 30 headshots, landing 50 slaps, and driving for over 19.47 miles.
Secondly, if you have been following the walkthrough you will have found all the 7 records in the game, and got the 7 outfits. So now after completing the game go back to the hub area/office, to play all the records, and try on all the outfits in the mirror, to get the last 2 trophies.

In this step you will earn the last trophies:
Silver All You Can Eat Herring
Silver Wooden Overcoats
Silver In Your Face
Silver Miles On The Clock
Gold Oldie But Goodie
Gold You’re So Vain
40-platinum L.A Noire: The VR Case Files
