Battlefield Hardline

The newest Battlefield title from EA DICE takes a refreshing turn from its usual military shooting styles to the modern day 'cop and robber' drama that pans out to players as 'Episodes,' similarly the way you see any such TV show being dished out.

Since this new Battlefield is all about doing police work, it's almost imperative that you keep collecting evidences to help solve the case at hand. However, evidence and warrant suspect locations can be easily missed out since they aren't in your sight, and you don't know where to look for them.

However, this list looks to rid the gamers of all such issues and presents at all the locations where you will find the evidences and warrant suspects. Besides that, there's also the special Dead Space and The Simpsons reference in the game, the location of which has also been listed down.
