Hard-Boiled Detective Outfit

"It's hard to fool a seasoned detective."
―In-game description

Hard-Boiled Detective is an outfit in L.A. Noire.


The outfit provides the player with an automatic wrong-response removal of all interview questions, when being worn.

Unlike when using a Intuition Point to remove a wrong response, if Cole accuses them of lying the game does not cross out incorrect evidence to make the selection easier.


The outfit can only be unlocked after finding all 8 Novels.

It is exclusive to the Remastered Editions of the game on PS4, XBox One, and Nintendo Switch.


  • The bright yellow hat is similar to the fictional detective Dick Tracy's signature headpiece
  • It's one of the few outfits in the game that doesn't have a jacket, along with the Beat Cop Uniform, the Hawkshaw and the Tar Uniform.
