A guide for L.A. Noire case Upon Reflection. This is your first case as police officer Cole Phelps. The main purpose of this case is to teach you how to move around in the game and complete cases. The case starts as you are on the way to the Alleyway Crime Scene.
Alleyway Crime Scene
Don’t Miss the Newspaper
Your objective at the Alleyway Crime Scene is to locate the gat. When you first start investigating, you will find the first newspaper on a stack of crates by the stairs on the right side of the alleyway.
Find the Blood-Stained Door
After the cut-scene, turn left and go to the blood-stained door. Investigate it using the A button when the controller vibrates. Back out of your investigation of the door with the B button.
Find the Reflection in the Window
Next, look up and investigate the open window. Phelps sees in the window the reflection of the gun you are looking for. (“Upon reflection” — get it?)
Where to find the Gun
To get to the gun, continue down the alley past the window you just investigated, and turn left around the edge of the building. There is a drain pipe that you can climb up to get on top of the building. When you’re on top of the building, walk to the side towards the open window which showed you the gun you were looking for. After some investigation of the gun, you and your partner Ralph decide to research the gun at the gun store.
