If you have been having any trouble finding the open warrants or solving the case files in Battlefield Hardline, we wanted to help you out. So, have no fear as we put together this handy guide for you all to ease your pain. There are achievements and trophies for capturing the warrants alive and many of them need to be arrested and not killed in order to find the evidence needed for case files.

If you find you missed some evidence or warrants at the completion of the episode, don’t worry as you can always go back and replay them. Well, we hope this helps you out. Enjoy and let us know what you think in the comments.

Episode 1 Back to School


Lawrence Kent – A “Red” Criminal. He arrives after Tap enters the school and splits from the group to wait at the bottom of the stairs you have to go through. Simply sneak up on him and arrest him to take him down


Ledger, Surveillance Photo and Box of Hot Shot – All three of these are on the 2nd floor of the school and are required to be found as part of the objective, very simple. The ledger is on the desk in front of you with the photo next to the printer adjacent to the ammo box. The Hot Shot box is in the next room before you speak to Tyson via the laptop.

Episode 2 Checking Out


Javier Rosado – You’ll start the episode and see two criminals in the lobby straight away. After eliminating them, you will be able to see Javier outside the door on the right hand side. He’ll have some buddies with him so be sure to take him out first to ensure he doesn’t run

Gary Volker – At one point, the mission objective is to get out of the lobby. While doing so, Gary will be below you at a certain point. This is the easiest point to get him as you can just jump down behind him and take him out. If not, you must wait until you go downstairs.
