Turn over all of the Jackal's audio logs to the Journalist    

There are seventeen Jackal tapes throughout the game. The first is given to you by the Journalist. The first set is the eight hidden around the northern territory. The second set is the eight hidden in the southern territory. Simply find all eight of them and then go to the Marina to meet the Journalist and turn them over to him. Use the map here to keep track of which ones you've found.

There is a known glitch with the second set of tapes. Once you've collected the tenth overall tape, every subsquent tape that you pick up will play the same message. Don't worry, the tapes are still being counted, so just collect all of them, keeping track on your own, and the achievement will still unlock once you've found all seventeen.

If you encounter this glitch and still want to know what the last set of tapes say, you can listen to all the audio from the tapes here.

In order to get this achievement you need to collect ALL jackal tapes on the whole map. even if you have the tenth tape you need to get the rest of them. AFTER you get the tapes from one section of the territory (north and south) you go back to the journalist and give him the tapes. give him the tapes after you get the them because you only get 2 or 3 chances to hand them over. if you screw up and give them too early you have start the game over.

So the journalist isn't just sitting somewhere in the south territory, I have to find and give them all to him those few moments that you meet him? This achievement really sucks!

Anyone have issues with the journalist not being in the bar? He was there before but after I grabbed my last needed tape and have been to the bar several times since he won't reappear. I have the glitch with only 9 tapes showing in my inventory. This will sick if I collect them all but can't turn in because the dang guy won't show up!
