LEGO City Undercover Red Brick Guide

LEGO City Undercover has a ton of Red Bricks just waiting to be collected! You can find the bricks in one of two ways, by either roaming around LEGO City between missions, or during the missions / special assignments. Each of the 15 missions has it’s own red brick!

  • Bricks 1 – 22 can be found during any free roam around LEGO City.
  • Bricks 23 – 37 are found during Special Assignments. Most will require you to replay these levels later after unlocking specific costumes with abilities.
  • Bricks 38-40 are not listed in this guide because they come unlocked by default from the start of the game (3 ringtones).

Thanks to our good buddy PackAttack04082, we compiled a simple guide to all 40 Red Bricks using his very handy video guide. As you scroll down the list we included next to the location listing a timestamp that you can use to reference this video to find any specific brick you are looking for!
