Audio Log ANNOUNCEMENT
 
Hopefully this will prevent people from constantly making the audio log topics.

Solo: You can get logs at any time. If you have beat the game, just load up Mombassa Streets and find the rest of your logs until you have 29/30. At this point, save & quit. Back in the lobby, load up Data Hive and get your final log. You will notice that when you try to load Data Hive, it will tell you that it is deleting your progress except for your VISR Comm Logs (audio logs), so don't worry about your logs.

Co-op: You have to get all of the logs BEFORE you start the Data Hive chapter. You can get them as you go along, or just get them all before you play the Kikowani Station flashback. When playing in co-op, if you go back to the lobby and try to load up a different chapter, it will DELETE YOUR AUDIO LOGS.

A map for the audio logs can be found in the achievement guide or here.

You know, I wish I had read this about an hour ago! I just played it on coop with a friend to collect the logs, then loaded up Hive mission to find out that they had all gone :( Cannot be arsed to try for them all again.

Found all Audio Logs, alone or with another ODST.

It is safer if you just do it solo (because you can quit and save anytime and pick up later), but my co-op friend and I found them all, and then read that it doesn't save.

As true as that is, you can still find them all and unlock the achievement in co-op. But you must finish all the missions and then follow the security guard into his secret room for the last audio log. You CANNOT quit the game and reload a mission. We breezed through all the missions, since it was on easy.

So thankfully, he and I unlocked the achievement. Good luck everyone.

So i hate to ask, but i have looked all over the place. I seem to have a problem where i can only find 27 of the 29 audio logs. I managed to find all 29 in co-op but we didn't know you had to complete all the levels up to data hive. So i have gone through 2 times now using the interactive map as well as a paper map on the table beside me marking off the points ive been to. This has not yielded any good results. You cant erase any data without losing all your characters and such. Anybody have any ideas? any Help is appreciated.

Pheonix_Assassin 11-10-2009 10:25 PM

Thanks for this info :D i will leave the audio logs till after i have completed campaign

Indie Hero 11-11-2009 06:10 PM

I'll have someone from here help me do this one when I get this from a friend, but until then I'm okay with waiting. I'm more interested in getting the Good Samaritan achievement.

final1980 11-13-2009 07:14 AM

Has anyone had the problem of 28 of the 30 logs. I know 30 is in the data hive but I loaded the map and went to every location shown and all the landmarks that contained the audio log were collected it said. So according to the map I have 29 of 30 but according to the game I only have 28 of 30. I am kinda stuck any advice would be much appreciated. Do I need to finish the game and then go back, I am in solo mode btw.

its just one that you missed

i print screened and put into paint erasing the icons when i got them.
the two places that i missed were one was a one door entrance room on the middle right and the other under a bridge kinda in the middle left
but you gotta know if you looked at all the places
if you go there im pretty sure it wont let you audio log twice.

Okay, i've completed the campaign a few times now and when i load up Mombassa streets it makes me start right at the beggining(When you're in the crash pod).
So when i go looking for the audio logs there are a few with force fields blocking certain roads that lead to certain audio logs.

Am i doing anything wrong?

Agent, I was having the same problem. I went here http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=176631
Look at audio log #9 video. There was a small door I missed. Hope it helps

Agent Aero 01-31-2010 01:44 PM

@Above Poster

I have the exact same problem, I am very frustrated right now!

I wrote down the beginning of each log and I used this site which numbers the logs and their location

http://nextgenwalkthroughs.com/Halo_..._Log_Locations

Apparently I am missing log #28 but when I go to the map which I remembered already getting that log, it doesn't let me pick it up again :mad:

I have also seen more than 10 engineers floating around, is all this normal?

wildwest08 03-08-2010 10:41 PM

thank you!!!!

iTWi2Tid 03-31-2010 09:22 PM

Thanks, I wondered around for hours looking for he last 3.
This made it much easier

HooDLuM 04-18-2010 04:25 PM

im currently on 29/30 playing co=op... so it is true that we have to play all the missions and not save and select data hive ?

obv i read the first post but on some other forums people are saying they saved and quit on 20 and still got the achieve...

smores114 05-05-2010 01:49 AM

does the order of appearance matter for the logs? or can they be found out of sequence?

akuma66676 05-15-2010 06:36 AM

im having troble. same prob as everyone.28/30 cant find the last one. can anybody help? looking for co-op game to go back and find them.please send friend request and will set up a time to play.

MikeBugslayer 05-27-2010 09:44 AM

Well, good to know why my audiologs were deleted :) I will do campaign second time then :/

X Ser1al X 06-14-2010 04:06 AM

Thanks a bunch for this guide. Could not find the last one for my life. Had to jump on those damn crates to get to it. Then got the one in the data hive. Yay! :woop::woop:

Missing some audio logs?
 
Ok, so I think I figured out why some people are having trouble finding all of the first 29 logs. I beat the campaign on all the difficulties and the started a new game to get the audio logs instead of just loading the Mombasa Streets mission. Once all of the city was available to travel around in, I went to all 29 locations but only ended up with 22 audio logs. (Yes I'm sure I went to every location.) I decided screw it and went after the rest of the game to get "Good Samaritan". After doing a few missions, I found some logs that I'd already gone past and weren't active, so at the time I'd thought I'd gotten them on one of my first few playthroughs.

So here's what I'm thinking, I've you're doing a playthrough, and not all of the side missions have been done yet, not all of the audio logs will be active. Going to finish the side missions than back track through the 29 locations again...

Futile resistance is.

Atriedes 06-28-2010 04:42 PM

Thanks!! Just need to finish off a few more audio logs!!

DarkReign2021 07-12-2010 06:41 AM

I don't need this, but it's definitely a valuable piece of information for anybody still hunting for them.

Something I don't get though is the 'loading up Mombasa Streets' part. It's never worked right for me. Everytime I do that it takes me to the very beginning of the game where I first drop out of my pod, than it forces me to redo the training area, meet Virgil, and play the first mission with Buck. Only way I can quickly jump into the Streets is to replay a mission like the Safari Level and beating it quickly to get back to the Rookie.

IzzyXbox360 07-12-2010 09:12 PM

Okay, I've read the first post over and over again, but just to be sure...
I'm currently playing this COOP with my girlfriend, we've finnished the game, so now we changed to Easy, and started getting all the Audio Logs. It resetted them all, no biggie though.
We're currently at around 20 now, but as I understood the first post:
All the 29 WILL BE DELETED if I go back to "replay mission". Am I right?

So in short: If you've finnished the game (like we have), gotten all 29 on Mombasa Streets, we just can't get the Achievement now just because we finnished the game?
I've got to do it all alone?

ELITExASSASSIN9 07-20-2010 05:45 AM

thanks for the info

MissingNo. 07-24-2010 02:47 AM

This might clear up some things for a few people:
By 'loading up Mombasa Streets' he/she means that you have to actually load Mombasa Streets and not Prepare to Drop.
If you don't have Mombasa Streets it means that you haven't completed all of the levels yet.

The 30th one (in Data Hive) is in a room that the Cop goes into instead of following the main corridor.
It's somewhere in there: I haven't gotten to it yet. But be careful: he'll turn hostile when you find it, saying, "Sorry friend... You know too much..."
I'm not sure if you can do this on Legendary, as the Cop dies as you go down the second Data Stack from Buggers. And plus, I haven't been able to go that far. A guy in a video oddly did it on Heroic, possibly confirming my thought.

If you're on Co-Op, you need to get them all in one game. So you can't Save and Quit and then go straight to Data Hive. You need to trigger the last Flashback (Kikowani Station), complete it, and then head for the last one in Data Hive.

I just got the All Ears and Audiophile Achievements. I also did the Naughty Naughty Achievement as well, as I thought it would be more beneficial to kill the Engineers I come across.

King044 08-02-2010 04:03 AM

I just got the all audio log achievement today after 5 hours of searching for the one I needed
