When the game begins you are given the assignment to go meet a snitch. He tells you about Juan Garcia Cruz and gives you an address to go to. He warns you "he likes guns."

Go to Juan's house, a cut scene starts with him shooting at you. Stay low and move to the left and around the fence. Go towards the back and jump the fence.

Go in the back door and Juan will start coming at you as you get more inside. Shoot him.

Achievement Unlocked: Forcible Rear Entry

Either you or Roy will kill the other guy. Search Juan's pockets. In one is his wallet with ID and the other has a silver dollar with a couple of letters on it.

Next go to the bedroom and find the flyer. (Thanks to Leeloo for the correction, I was typing from memory). This will tell you about 20th Century Market. Don't leave yet.

Go out the back door and to the shed. On the shelves is some cans. There is one light colored can on the second shelf. Pull it and it opens a secret door. (For a funny comment from Roy, pick up the yellow can next to it).

Enter the secret room and go straight to the shelves by the can opener. Open the two cans using the can opener.

Achievement Unlocked: Soup In The Pot

Go to the desk and look at the ledger. Point and click on a Tijuana name for the clue of "E.J".

Go to 20th Century Market.

Achievement Unlocked: High Flyer

After the cut scene you will chase one guy. If you are lucky enough you can tackle him by pressing "A" otherwise you will have to chase him on the roof and fight him.

Once you catch him, you get his ID and ask him questions. You find out his name is "Airto" and he has a silver coin.

Question #1 - Lie: Silver Coin
Question #2 - Doubt

Go to Parnell's Soup Company.

There will be a cut scene and then you have to raid the building. There will be about 8-10 guys to kill. Once you kill them all, go through the set of doors on the left to a small office. Another cut scene will happen.

Search the body, find a coin in his left hand. Go out of the office and open a box with the reefer in it. A cop will ask you about "Cruz". Follow him upstairs and find another body with a wad of cash in his hand. In his pocket will also be another coin.

Another cut scene takes you back downstairs and you have 5 coins now. Put them in the order of MAS ANG KAY MET ALS

Achievement Unlocked: Spare A Dime

Go to Masangkay Metals

When you get there, you have to go around back. In the ally you will see an orange drain pipe to climb. Go up that then to the right and down the other pipe. Go around back. Three guys are at a table, they will spot you and start shooting. There are about 4 to kill here. Head to the front and up the stairs. Go through the door, another guy will start shooting on your right, kill him and keep pressing forward. There are about 4 more guys to kill until you get to an office to arrest the leader.

Achievement Unlocked: Every Herb Bearing Seed

Yeah, I don't remember all the clues, sorry about that. I never found the 13th clue either though. Hence, "The Quick and Easy Version". Sorry.

Factory Sealed Soup Cans: Doubt
Parnell Soup Company: Doubt
Knowledge of Cruz Brothers: Doubt
Inside man Jorge Garcia: Truth
he is now going to take you on a tour. and you will meet Sergio Rojas. in the book, click on the 20th century market. talk to Sergio and you will get his silver dollar. now you will interview Sergio
Factory Sealed Soup Cans: Doubt
20th Century Market: Lie - Juan's Silver Dollar
now go to the 20th century market.
now just follow the guide above for the rest of the case. (this is as far as i am and if i dont get 5 stars i will come back to either edit or delete this post)
now, for the guy there, the 3rd question (Jorge and Juan Cruz question) the answer is Truth

Playing through the game using your guide. Fyi at the beginning the 20th century flyer is in the bedroom to the right of the kitchen and not in the kitchen itself. There's only a dictionary on the table in the kitchen.

I think the last missing clue some people here are searching for - at least it is not mentioned in the guide - is a note with the writing "Masangkay" on it.

You can find at Juan Garcia Cruz's residence, right after the shootout.

In the room where you search Juan, turn right when facing the window out to the street - there will be a note laying on some of the soup boxes -> "Masangkay" clue.

Great quick and easy guide. I tried picking up the yellow can but Roy never said anything to me. What was his funny comment?

One of the cans has a jack in the box in it and pops out and startles you. Roy says something to the effect of that you "jumped like a little girl"

Thanks man, didn't even take 25 minutes. Sad, the best case was the last one. This kinda felt like the worst (game wise, not achievements ;P)

So you can't get 5 Stars and all 5 achievements in one run? No big deal I guess, if it's as short as everyone is saying, but it is still kind of weird to not be able to do both in one run.

I got all 13 clues despite going to the market first and not using the phone in the first house. I would have gotten 5 stars, but I missed a few questions. Even though I went to the market first, I still got to talk to the Parnell guy at the factory and get the tour and the 6 extra questions. Afterward, it skipped ahead to nighttime and the raid.

It seems some people who go to the market first don't get to talk to Parnell. They go to the soup factory and it skips right to the raid. That's why they're missing a clue and only have 2/2 questions at the end rather than 8/8.

EDIT: Now I know what happened. When I talked to the guy at the market, I answered the questions wrong so I didn't get a lead, so I still got to talk to Parnell and get the tour at the soup factory. If you get the questions right at the market, it skips directly to the soup factory raid and you miss 1 clue and 6 questions. So to get 5 stars you do need to go to the soup factory first.

5 Star Run = 3 Interrog. with 9 Question and 13/13 Clues

Achievementrun = 1 Interrog. with 2 Question and 12/13 Clues

All in one, i think is not possible but i played a fully 5 Star Run and then i play 5min to get the "Highflyer Achievement"

Really you need 1 1/4 runs for all :woop:

I thought it was genius you put quick and easy version in the thread title, good work. Maybe thats what mine was lacking on the other DLC, people mistaken it as a full fledged guide when it was just a jot down of the path to all achievements and 100% in one run :woop::woop:

Excellent work, 5 starrrrr

Thanks Evokazz. Considering that it doesn't matter if you 5* it or not, some just want to do the case and get it done with. That's where I was heading with the guide. Since it doesn't count toward any other achievement, going the easy route to get the 5 achieves and be done with the game was what I was thinking.

not to be a dick, but did you even read the thread title? its called an achievement guide, not a walkthrough...

if you are looking for a walkthrough, there are 2 already up (one of which done by me) that will provide that information you seek.

Also, the reason why you only got 12/13 clues was probably from following this -achievement guide- and if you do you miss out on a clue and questions by not going to parnell's soup factory before 20th century market.

Your guides are great II OE II, I just created this for those that don't care if they only get 1* or 5* on the game, since the only real thing to do for this is get the achievements. I finished with 4*, was happy and sent the game back.

I have to say I used all your guides for the game, and they worked like a champ. Great job.

great guide. I thought this was the weakest of the DLC's, way too short.

Don't know if this has been mentioned, but it's possible to get 5 stars & all of the achievements in one playthru. After you've done everything at Cruz's house, go to the market & once the achievement unlocks, exit to the dashboard. When you restart the game, select resume, don't go to the case section, & reload you save for Reefer Madness. You will be back at the house, where you should have all of the clues in your notebook. You can then use one of the 100% case guides on the site.
