This has to be done in one playthrough (the case) if you do get spotted and finish the case, you will not get this achievement.

If you get spotted, just quit and resume the case.

So i can't just go back to the interview and try again? I have to restart the whole case?

Ughhhh... I was hoping there wasn't an achievement for this. I lost count how many times I failed this. I got as far when he crossed the street.

It's honestly hard. I've been trying to do it. I can do it perfectly fine but the achievement doesnt pop for some reason :/

Tailing him by car is the easy part, Trying to follow him by foot is the tricky part that's where I kept messing up, I finally got it though the achievement pops after he leaves the travel agency

I think I misunderstood a bit...I decided to just come back at a later time and get the achievement so I finished the case. I CAN replay the case and get this achievement right? The way the original post is written it kinda seems like it's missable :/ Sorry if I sound stupid guys I just want to make sure ;)

I misunderstood what incognito meant. I thought you simply hold down A while walking and keeping a distance. I didn't know you could stare at windows or sit down with a newspaper. Makes more sense now.

No DO NOT RESTART. Just "QUIT" and then back to the main menu, click "RESUME" and it will go back to the last checkpoint.

How do you know if he spots you??? I've done this several times and I can't imagine how he would have spotted me but I haven't popped this achievement.

You will fail the mission if he spots you.

I tailed him perfectly, he did not spot me, yet I didn't get the achievement. What's the deal?

The first time I did this case, when I was tailing him in my car, Roy said something like "we've been spotted. Back off" but the mission didn't fail. I ended up getting spotted on foot, so I didn't get the achievement that playthrough anyway, but maybe that's what happened to you and it counts as being spotted, even though it doesn't fail the mission.

Yeah I've been having the same problem. I've doe it perfectly several times and the achievement just won't pop for me either.

I got this achievement today doing nothing differently than what I had done before. The achievement didn't pop until right after Roy handed me the cigarette case after the short cutscene. I don't know if this matters but I got it while working through all the vice cases in order.

damn it!!!

I failed on the grounds of letting him get too far away when I was literally right there at the travel agency (got caught up on that final corner for some reason

so I restarted the on foot portion again without getting spotted and still no achievement!!!!

fucking bullshit I technically wasn't spotted like the achievement says :(

Not a problem for me, got it first shot. If its not working for you, then you may need to restart the case, and just make sure you don't fail any part of this section.

I should also add that I did the case as part of the Vice desk, didn't select it through the menu, although i doubt that has anything to do with it... but you never know :P

I think I'm going to finish up 5-starring every case and come back to this. It's still too murky on how exactly it must be done, i.e. without restarting, from the game and not cases, etc.

To be safe dashboard quit.

You will have to go through the interview with Arnett and re-do the car tailing section, but that's the easy part.

I replayed this case 3 times so far. Should have done the dash quit the 2nd time.

My method
From your car run to the car in front of you (tire on back), hide at the right corner. Once he starts walking past the alley, run across the main road towards the pawn shop. Run until you reach one of the shops (with a violin). Go incognito. He will look around then cross one road straight ahead before making a 90 to cross another. Let him cross to the other side of the main road and walk a bit further. Run immediately across the main road to the other side (newsstand), stay out line of sight as you go straight across one more road. Hide at that corner (Bargains sign). He turns right into the area with the travel agency, run up to that corner (blue-black building) and go incognito at the rotating displays of cigars. It has to be right at the angled corner or you will fail as it counts as him getting away. Once he's in the doorway leave and run towards it.

leeloo is dead on. I failed twice cause I let him get to far away. The screen said I failed and instead of pressing the A button I dashboarded and restarted the game at the interview part. Got the cheevo on the third try.

I got this first try, no issues. if anything tailing candy was annoying.

I found it easier to stay on the opposite street to tail him.

Exactly. Just stay on the opposite side when tailing him on foot. At the large junction, just walk over to the side he started on and when he vanishes around the corner walk back to the side of the street you started on. It's SO easy that way.

People are having trouble with this? Its easy just stay back and stand behind the odd tree. You dont even have to press RB

I've just done it without being spotted but no achievement. Will have to replay the mission when I've finished it, grr!

Easy, just stay on the side where you park the car...keep good distance and become incognito at the news stand...then use the wall across the street for cover...

i found that once arnett crosses the street that it's better to stay on your side of the road so you're parallel to him as you tail as they don't look to the other side of the road but only behind them. the only time you cross is when arnett turns into where the travel agent is.

i tailed him on foot a few times without being spotted but no achievement, i also dont think i was spotted during the driving part.

the first time i folllowed him by car without having a single crash or knock i got the achievement no probs.

for me the car part was the harder part following him on foot was easy i never got spotted tailing him on foot, i didnt think i did by car but idk if crashing car means he somehow spots you despite the case not failing or your partner saying a word.

1 time earle said back up he's seen us but the case did'nt end.

My ad vice (pun intended) to anyone struggling with this is to dashboard as soon as you have any sort of accident in the driving sequence

You don't have to dashboard. I just hit start quit & resume. Starts @ the interview. On a side note: I got it my 2nd try staying on the same side of the road you start on... Sprint, RB on the front fender of the car in front of you, sprint to newsstand hit A, sprint all the way across the street to the shoe shiners on the left, hit A. Sit here until he walks past you & all the way to the end of the street & turns right. Sprint to the corner he rounded, cutscene will start

i found it to be better to stay on the side of the road where you park you car. you hide behind arnett's yellow car and hide behind the bench further down the road. Then there is a street artist you can incognito. it easy becuase Arnett eventually does cross the street to the right side and if you stay on the right you wont get spotted crossing the street. Becuase if a car honks at you while you are crossing the street Arnett turns around and spots you instantly.
