    Joker De PabloAwesome guide. Only problem is episode 6 James Mun doesn't show up as a warrant. He is just a regular guard. I finished the game on Veteran with all the other suspects arrested but I can't get the arrest or the collectible. Some kind of glith

    Anubis131973James Mun didn't show up as a warrant for me either, but if you quickly scan him again before he sees you, he will then appear as a warrant and you can loot him after he is arrested.

    I will post here a full Collectibles Guide and you can choose between a Single Episodes Guide or a All in One Guide. There are total of 92 Collectibles in the Game. 71 Evidences for the 7 Case Files and 21 Warrants. You can not miss any Collectibles because you can revisited every Episode via Chaptermenu every Time you want. Both Collectibles are immediately saved if you pick up them or arrest. You can arrest (handcuff) or taser the Warrants, both counts for the Achievements.

    WZRD 179So my dumb ass restarted the campaign by mistake. Can somebody tell, I've gotten all the collectibles episodes 1-6 . Can somebody tell me if I can get up to what I was up to and start getting the collectibles up to where I was at or am I screwed and have to start getting all of them again from episode 1
