Info on Fakeloo

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.

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.

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.

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.

Angry

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 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.

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...

Tailing Candy was no problem for me. Funny how some of us find certain things harder than others when its quite easy for others. Tailing Arnett's a pain!

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.
