Looking for those 30 audio files in New Mombassa and beyond, then maybe this handy map will take away some of the hunting around in the dark. Take a look at this interactive map.

Do you have to collect these in order? Because I found audio file #1 first and now I'm near #16 and it won't let me collect it.

EDIT: Apparently you need to get #24 and then you're able to get the others. Before I got #24 though, I got #25 & #29 first.

I have spent the better part of an hour looking for #5 (5th from the very top - it says 5 in the pop-up window if you click on it) and it does not exist. The first picture shows some sort of security door on a second floor, but there is no door remotely close to that area. Anyone actually find it?

your audio progress NEVER resets, read what it says next time...it specifically says everything EXCEPT audio files will be deleted.

Thanks for the map. Does anyone know if you need to beat certain missions to activate certain terminals? I am using the map and marking carefully (off a print screened copy) which ones I've finished and I cant get to number 16 yet. I'm in the exact right spot but the terminal is just blank. http://www.msxbox-world.com/features/Halo-3-ODST/audio-file-16.php

09-24-2009, 01:02 AM
Is there any way of knowing which logs I've already found? I got 18 on my campaign playthrough without a guide and I want to go round and pickup the rest. If I could avoid running round to each local it'd save me some time.

I'm having the same problem. I just finished Kikowani Station after already defeating the other flashbacks. When I tried to run around and find some more audio files I was locked in that area. After reading online that the final audio file is in Data Hive, I went back and redid NMPD HQ. I've got 19 audio files, but none of the locations on the map are active. The only flashback that shows as completed now is NMPD HQ. Do I have to do all of the others except Kikowani to activate the rest of the audio locations?:confused:

Once completed go back and reply the "Mombasa Streets" level and find the 29, then save and quit... replay the "Data Hive" level and the last audio log is in the frozen area with the doctor person. :)

I am upset that I played for 2 hours with a freind and it does not remeber what audio files I have found when we exited and started Data Have. They took a step backward in this game with achivement tracking. We found all 29 and they make you play all the flashbacks in the same save. Come one....

Thankz, but I've beaten the game already. That's what I'm confused about. The audio logs still are not appearing right. I can't even collect 15 because 15 aren't activated. I went through the whole map and most of them were inactive.

Shadowmancer88
09-24-2009, 02:13 PM
I'm having the same problem as most people here, some or most of the audio log terminals don't show up in the game, I know where they are and how to get to them however the game won't let me get them they are just blank terminals.

Do I have to finish the game first then replay it to get them all?

I've heard you can get them all when you finish the game by replaying the streets level is that right?

Also is there a specific order to collect them in?, I'm following the map but a few don't show up.

Ok then how do you explain this we collect 29 it saves we leave back to lobby choose to change to data hive it says it will delete the progress hit ok load data hive play it and that guy always die and you have 0 collectibles so read the post b4 being a smart ass

Yeah i've found that out the hard way we did it twice so if you're doing it in CO OP you have to start all the levels until data hive and that last audio but if you're doing it SOLO it will save audio collectibles even if you quit out of map

if u ever do mission select or change the difficulty in pregame then you lose all of your coop progress and i mean everything. on single player u only lose campaign progress but keep ur audio files

It's not rocket science man, photobucket removed the image quite simply because they are hosting copyrighted and protected material which is illegal and they are therefore liable for damages accordingly.

Use of copyright protected material without permission is illegal so on the basis you are willing to host illegal material you won't be overly surprised when the copyright owner presses charges accordingly will you? Obviously your a bigger fish in the pond than photobucket and are willing to be unlike photobucket prosecuted for hosting illegal images.

It's quite obvious the image was stolen from http://www.msxbox-world.com/features/Halo-3-ODST/index.php and any fuck whit can see quite clearly the copyright notice on the page:

Anyone figure out if you can load the last mission and grab them all, then go back and get Data Hive, or do you have to start from the beginning?

I have beaten the game on Legendary, I loaded up the last level, got 2 or 3 data's and it said 2/30, 3/30 etc etc. Then the next few on the map, and yes I was at the correct spot, I could not select the data thing. It wasnt lit up or anything. So....do you have to play through the game and get them? We collected a few in Co-Op which I knew doesnt save, but why are some unattainable? Do they need to be collected in any kind of order?

edit: ok, I reloaded last mission. I went counter clockwise on that map and got all 29 then went and grabbed the 30th. Didnt take long, I think that there is an order to them.

i wouldnt follow that interactive map, it wasnt very precise on the locations, i found it was missing audio file number 9 aswell or it got messed up with another audio file by the creator, i spent 3 1/2 hours on that map and got nowhere, so instead i followed THESE (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=176631) "video" guides which is hugely precise, within an hour or so i had most of them, granted i did miss 1 because i thought i collected 1 when i didnt, someone mentioned on the forums if your near an audio log you'll hear car alarms going off or hear police sirens going off so i used this tactic to find my last one and then it was off to the hive to collect my achievement!

You have to save and quit cause you can't access Data Hive from the streets.

That wouldn't work though; co-op and solo track separately, so what you collect solo you haven't in co-op.

Tell you what. I'll go ahead and report their site for a copyright violation to Bungie directly, and we'll see how long it stays up, how about it?

You can't just slap a copyright on someone else's work because you added something to it. And how about you contribute a little something in your research before just talking about my big balls? I substantiated my claims; explained it pretty clearly, but instead you've jumped right to the personal insults without adding anything else.

http://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap1.html#107

It's for non-profit, educational purposes. So they can't get in trouble with Bungie for doing it but they CAN get in trouble for claiming the map as their own.

This is why we can't have nice things.

I'm so mad. I went through it, got all 29, then I went to go to the Data Hive and I can't without deleting everything. I just wasted a lot of my time trying to do this with my friend. Now I have to do it again solo this time. I didn't look at the thread till after I did it :/

Ok, I think I found a way around this. Before quitting or anything, we found the level right before data hive. So we are going to try beating that level and see if it takes us to data hive. I'll test it and post my findings.

kinda pissed, i played once and collected 6, then played today using this, i screen shot the map, and i was marking them off as i went, but i only have 28 and not 29, from what i counted, is there a better way to tell? and im pretty sure i found them all, is there a way to tell which i forgot?

I just completed Kikowani Station - back in Mambasa, and the bottom left area *Audio Diary #29* still has a force field all the way around it. What mission must be completed to then have access to that area?!?!

If you mean the one I think you mean, then a little way to the left of the force field is a security door which leads to the audio log.

You might look for #26 before having to backtrack too much. It seems like the only one kinda out of the way to me.

When xboxworld did the saints row 2 map in this manner you could mark them complete as you went. I would definately suggest pasting into paint/photoshop and marking off as you go.

I played the game on normal and didn't go out of my way to collect the audio logs. When finished, I loaded up the mombasa (sp) streets mission, visited each log and marked it off until I had all 29, then loaded the data hive (on easy to save time), and got the bleep bloop.

It took perhaps 90 minutes all up. I forgot that the game wasn't paused when looking at the map once or twice and got killed (had the sound off). Don't do that.

I think we need someone to confirm whether or not you CAN get all 29 primary audio logs AFTER completing Kikowani Station, before going to the Hive.

I went through the whole game again, and after kikowani station, NONE of the 29 audio log locations are showing active, when i still have 1 left to go. Am I suppose to get some BEFORE a certain point in the game?

Shalazar Viate
09-30-2009, 12:30 PM
Do you have to collect these in order? Because I found audio file #1 first and now I'm near #16 and it won't let me collect it.

EDIT: Apparently you need to get #24 and then you're able to get the others. Before I got #24 though, I got #25 & #29 first.
Some of them won't become active until after certain flashbacks.

Me and my bro have been playing the campaign on Legendary, we just completed all the flashbacks but haven't started Data Hive yet...

If I am not mistaken, we should be able to track down all audio files that we don't have, and then play data hive to get the achievement?

We currently have 18~ audio files found.

I believe your gonna have a problem because after you finished Kikowani Station, you end up with a restricted version of Mombasa Streets and you may not be able to collect the other 11 audio logs but you should try nonetheless because I only heard about it and not know if its actually true.....I'm just putting the word out though.

Good Luck! =):drunk

your audio progress NEVER resets, read what it says next time...it specifically says everything EXCEPT audio files will be deleted.
Actually, that only works when you play single player. When you play Co-op, you have to play through the whole game because they do disappear when you quit.

MiGfire
10-05-2009, 02:01 AM
There's many clues that tell you an audio log is near by:

1) Alarms/Sirens (car alarms, police sirens, one includes beeping)

2) Phone Ringing

3) Blinking Street Lights

4) Some ATM machine thing saying "PLEASE COLLECT YOUR TICKETS". It is shooting out tickets as well.

5) Similar to the ATM machine thing, except it's not saying anything, and instead of tickets, it's shooting out coins.

You can tell these are clues, because after the audio log is accessed, all the clues for that specific audio log, will stop making noise and shut off.

I have spent the better part of an hour looking for #5 (5th from the very top - it says 5 in the pop-up window if you click on it) and it does not exist. The first picture shows some sort of security door on a second floor, but there is no door remotely close to that area. Anyone actually find it?

I am aslo stuck on this one i used a video guide to and its not here.

That map is pretty cool, definitely going to come in handy. I tried my best to make a printable version, keep in mind that there is some clipping at the top and bottom.

Also the quality isn't the best when printing, but it's good enough.

I had finished the campaign, then just went back to the "Mombasa Streets" level, and worked my way through them. I'd already got a few from playing through the campaign obviously, but as far as I can remember none of the audio logs are in similar surroundings as other ones... so it's easy to recognise ones that you've already found through the campaign and move onto the next one.

You should be listing for car alarms/police sirens. If you can hear them, then that means you didn't get the audio log.

I started up my legendary playthough, and after I completed "ONI Alpha" another one magically showed up.

Also msxbox-worlds audio log numbers are sorta backwards As you didnt start there so why would it be number one, yet where u do start campaign is number (16)

Great to have access to maps and guides! :)

Not so great to have this game behave totally weird though. I just went through every single audio file location in the city trying to find 8/30 and all of them were non-activated. I had the map close at hand and checked the locations off as I went along. The first 7/30 were also all scattered without any logical way of knowing why they were the ones.

I have thoroughly enjoyed ODST earlier but this is simply put it, trash. I don't like to chase around looking for things to be yellow and find that none of them are. I hope this will sort itself out when I start the game again next time. If not then it really is a weird glitch. I did find 7/30 after all. :confused:

Oh, and I have finished the campaign already and tonight tried to find the audio-logs via Mombasa-streets mode.

EDIT: I finally made it. Had to start a new campaign to get the rest of the audio-files. Most of them became available after the first two missions and the rest activated between different missions. Quite the hassle really.

Great guide, thanks!

I'm sorry to hear that this achievement glitches for some players, I hate when that happens.

Also I think it should be added to the Achievement Guide that:

- Do it in Solo Play mode since Co-Op campaign won't save audiophile progress
- it is better to do this one after you beat the campaign once so you can raom the city free
- you can do it on easy difficulty setting making the few fights you don't manage to avoid easier
- look for a Mongoose in the availble ammo stashes to make the trip faster and drive past many enemies
- listen for car alarms, talking ATM-machines and payphones pouring out coins, there is an Audiophile nearby

I read this entire thread and picked up on these various tips. I got around 10-15 logs during casual playthrough, and with these tricks I mopped the rest up in less that one hour and a half.

Hope you all guys out there having problem with this get it done eventually. I really liked ODST, it's an interesting game :D


Cheers!
