Introduction
Inspired by classic Hollywood and Asian cinema style action thrillers, Sleeping Dogs is a gritty open-world cop drama set in the vibrant city of Hong Kong. Sleeping Dogs catapults players into the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organizations from the inside... the Hong Kong Triads. As players explore the bustling and crowded Hong Kong island, through its neon-lit side streets and sprawling street markets, an incredible story unfolds of loyalty and betrayal where Wei begins to question his own motives as he is sucked in deeper than he could ever imagine.

Step 1: Story
Complete the story by finishing all of the triad missions and cases marked with green shields and blue shields respectively. During this point you will be able to gather collectibles and do side missions. Also leveling up your Face, Triad and Cop status as much as possible.

NOTE:
So a lot of people are having trouble unlocking this, even though they have completed all the requirements. They all seem to be stuck at a certain percentage (ex. 91.10% / 100%). The method that seems to be fixing this is to go back and redo the First Martial Arts Club, the one next to the Kung Fu temple where you learn all your fighting moves.

Step 2: Collectibles
These aren't too bad to find. There are 4 different kinds of collectibles. Lockbox, Security Camera, Health Shrine and Jade Statues. After completing a certain task you will be able to view all kinds of collectibles on your map.

  • Lockbox 100 in total.
  • Security Camera 26 in total.
  • Health Shrines 50 in total.
  • Jade Statues 11 in total.

Here is a video showing you all the locations of all collectibles (Location only). Look at the achievements below for a video guide on where to find the appropriate collectibles. Or click HERE to also view the videos. Take this time to go out and finish any side mission you have not completed yet and any missing collectibles. This is also a good time to grind out any missing Stat Awards if you need to reach level 10 in Face, Triad or Cop. You can also replay missions if needed. Press and go to the Social Hub, tap a few time and you will be able to replay previous missions

Conclusion:
As good as Sleeping Dogs is, its name represents the game very well. Not everyone got around to playing it, which is a genuine shame. Packed with action, emotion and attainable gamerscore, Sleeping Dogs is the full package.

There's a mission early in the game called "Club Bam Bam". In the first fight inside the club, you can see some aquariums across the walls. Grab an enemy with  and drag him over to do an environmental kill with an aquarium. A fish will fall out onto the floor. Pick it up with  and start swinging. Holding  for a heavy attack while holding the fish will result in a quick one hit kill. This fish has a very short life span, so try to KO one of the weaker Thugs.

NOTE: You must break the one on the right side. As that's the only one that drops a fish. If you do not get it on your first visit to the club. You can go back and replay the mission at a later time.

Here is a video guide by bs000.

 

Take A Bite Out Of Crime10
Complete a Case. 

STORY RELATED AND CAN NOT BE MISSED.

Cases are indicated by blue shields, , objectives on the map. It'll also say new case available, which should make it incredibly obvious. The first case you'll encounter very early in the game is called "Popstar."

Man Around Town20
Visit Aberdeen, Central, Kennedy Town and North Point. 

Super easy. Simply get into a vehicle and just drive around on the highway from town to town. And this will unlock shortly after passing through the last town. The chances are you will unlock this natural progression without even noticing.

Foodie10
Try 10 different foods or drinks. 

There are more than 10 different foods or drinks found in the game:
 

  • Pork Bun
  • Fish Dumpling Skewer

Environmentalist15

These are a series of task that you will come to with natural progression. You will either be asked to do some or all of these during certain missions.

Safe Driver20
Cruise for 2 minutes straight without damaging your car. 

Pretty straight forward achievement. Get into a car, a slow car would be best as you can control it better. Get onto the highway and just drive without hitting anything for 2 minutes. A timer will pop up on the bottom right corner of your screen.

Alternate Solution:

If you are not having any luck getting this while driving on the highway. You can go to the round about towards the top right of the map. I would recommend a class C or high vehicle, that way you can maintain a steady speed in order to unlock this.

Go to this point on the the map: http://i.imgur.com/j8NuU.jpg
And simply start to drive around the circle at a steady speed for 2 minutes. You will not have to worry about other cars, side walk objects or pedestrians getting in your way. It is the easiest and flawless way to get this.

Infowlable15
Win 50,000 on a single cockfight. 

Cockfights are displayed on the map as orange roosters,. This is located to the far left of the map, see video below. This achievement is luck based. I suggest making a save just before you speak to the guy in front of the cockfight arena just in case you lose. There are a couple of other cockfight locations. But this one would be the best place to obtain this. The other cockfight arenas have a money cap. Unlike the one in the video you can place a minimum bet of $50,000.
