This LA Noire The Badge Pursuit Challenge locations guide will help you find all 20 Police Badges AKA Shields. These collectible items are hidden throughout L.A. Noire’s beautiful and incredibly accurate recreation of Los Angeles circa 1947.

This challenge however is only available via pre-order of the game from GameStop or EB Games in the United States, Canada and Australia or in the United Kingdom from Game. Hopefully it will be made available to others as paid downloadable content later on.

  • Collecting all 20 of the hidden badges will earn you the Button Man Suit which gives you extra ammo for all of your weapons. Additionally, each Cop Badge that you collect will also give you a boost of 5 XP for each one that you collect (for a total boost of 100XP if you manage to find each and every one), this will allow you to unlock further intuition points much easier and quicker than normal.

    Intuition Points are used as credits that give Phelps special investigation insight to make cracking the case easier.

    Also included in the game box if you pre-ordered the game from GameStop to get the Badge Pursuit Challenge should be a set of seven 35mm film negatives which, if you study them closely, will reveal the location of the 20 secret Police Badges hidden throughout L.A. But you won’t need to do that because 007 made a video guide! Check it out here:

      Thank you very much for this. I don’t know why people though think you need to use the car to get into some places in the game. You don’t need to smash the gates. He will easily hop over it. Unless you are doing it for
