    01.)                    INTRODUCTION                                 G0100
    ===============================================================================
    
    Welcome to 'L.A. Noire: The Badge Pursuit Challenge' for the PS3 and XBOX
    360, released by Rockstar in 2011. This pack is DLC for the main game and can
    also be found as part of the Complete edition.
    
    If you bought the normal edition at Gamestop or Game you get this DLC included
    with the game already too and do not need to purchase it again.
    
    Suggestions, comments or errors - tell me about it. Enjoy!

    02.)                    BASICS                                       G0200
    ===============================================================================
    
    Hidden around L.A. Noire's beautiful recreation of 1947 Los Angeles are 20
    police badges to find and collect. Find all 20 of these badges to unlock the
    dapper Button Man Detective suit which provides extra ammo for all weapons.
    Each badge also provides 5 additional XP which will help further unlock
    Intuition Points - special credits that can be used to give Phelps a key
    investigative insight when he needs it most.
    
    The above says already enough. As DLC to the main game if you download this
    pack you can go on a collection hunt. Having extra Intuition Points is already
    reward enough. However, you also unlock the dapper Button Man suit after
    finding all 20 of these badges which provides extra ammo for all weapons. Nice!
    
    If you bought the normal edition at Gamespot or Game you will have received a
    film strip inside the box that shows you 3 of the 20 locations already. This
    is useful but still not enough to find them all without help or a lot of
    exploring. Note that the Complete edition contains the DLC but not film strips
    in the box.
