Halo 3: ODST - Audio Log guide

Uplift Reserve

Audio Log 2

Next, we’re going to use the Mongoose to pick up the audio logs between Tayari Plaza and Uplift Reserve. Leave the supply cache and work your way east. Hop off your Mongoose, open the traffic gate, and continue south. Turn left where the Brutes are wrestling with the Engineer and park after you pass the overhead walkway on your left. Head up the ramp and turn to your right. You’ll see a train ticket dispenser to the right of the door ahead. This is where you’ll find your second audio log.

Above: After you head up the ramp, the second audio log will be to your right

Audio Log 3

Head west from the second audio log until you reach the courtyard. You’ll find the third audio log in the southwest corner of the courtyard behind a small wall of sandbags.

Above: The third audio log is just south of the supply cache where we got the Mongoose 

Above: Collecting three audio logs will give you 15G for the Tuned in achievement

Audio Log 4

Get back on your Mongoose, and head through the south exit of the courtyard. Stay to your right as you continue heading south. At the first large intersection, turn left to head east past the stairs where Mickey’s first campaign mission begins. Keep an eye out for an entrance to an underground tunnel. Head down the tunnel into the underground roundabout. You’ll see the fourth audio log in the northeast end of the tunnel.

Above: The waypoint on this map is a little misleading since the fourth audio log is underground 

Above: Look for the tunnel entrance at the southwest end of this structure 

Above: You’ll find the fourth audio log in this underground roundabout

Audio Log 5

Next, we’re going to leave the roundabout and head to southwest and up the road leading to the closed gate to reach Audio Log 5.

Above: Notice that this is an automated UNSC Recruiting Center

Audio Log 6

From here, work our way back towards the south entrance of the courtyard where we found the third audio log. Stay to your right as you continue past the south entrance of that courtyard and you’ll run right into the sixth audio log.

Above: The sixth audio log is southeast of the fourth audio log

Audio Log 7

The seventh audio log is in the middle of the courtyard just southeast from the sixth audio log. Watch out for the grunts manning the turrets around the courtyard’s center.

Audio Log 8

Head down the alley south of the courtyard where you found Audio Log 7. You’ll see a tall door to your left just behind a large truck. Head through the door to pick up Audio Log 8.

Above: It’s easy to miss this entrance

    This guide definitely helped i know theres no way i could have found them all without this guide. Thanks! Too bad i forgot to teabag that cop though...
  • Hellhunter97 - October 27, 2009 8 p.m.

    The guide was extremely helpful thanks GR. It only took me between an 90 and 120 minutes and thats becuz i lost my mongoose and had to go back across the map.
  • Fedexcommando - October 14, 2009 10:32 p.m.

  • j4k3tele - October 12, 2009 7:22 a.m.

    I only got like 22 on my first playthrough. Still gotta get like 6 of em tho. =[
  • VoodooPanda - October 4, 2009 10:24 a.m.

    I'm probaly not the first to notice this but the street signs will point were to find the audio logs when you are nearby
  • GrandMoffBubbles - October 3, 2009 6:26 a.m.

    Nagata u are the man!!! Great walkthru. Works perfectly. I am recommending this to all my friends.
  • Mike91192 - October 3, 2009 5:23 a.m.

    Problem solved with audio log #29 [circle 9 arc 5] I just went over my friend's house and re-collected them all on Co-op xP
  • GrandMoffBubbles - October 2, 2009 11:16 p.m.

    I like the teabagging instructions for the soldier. nice touch!
  • Mike91192 - October 1, 2009 5:13 p.m.

    I just found out that little face about log #30 and I checked the log list, the only one I'm missing is Circle 9/Arc 5, which on this list is #29. I just started a new save on mombasa streets and the log still isn't there. :\

    @Patius: Sorry if the description was too vague. Did you watch the video? I try to trace the path you'll take on the map for each of the walkthrough videos. @Mike91192 1: Is it possible that you already collected that Audio Log? You don't have to grab them in the same order this guide follows. 2: The soldier will not follow you unless you've already gotten all 29 logs from the Mombasa Streets map.
  • Mike91192 - September 30, 2009 7:35 p.m.

    I have two problems: 1] I'm currently on location for Audio log 29 [circle 9, arc 5] and the telephone is NOT active for me to get the recording. 2] I've tried multiple times to get #30 and when i jump into the second data stack hole into the "frozen section" the data stack goes back down, trapping the solider above to be killed by drones. No matter how I try he will NOT go first and the drones DO NOT appear until i jump down the hole.
  • DrDevious - September 29, 2009 7:42 p.m.

    Oh thank god I got it! It was pesky number 22 I thought it was one of the other two or three computers in that area
  • DrDevious - September 29, 2009 5:30 a.m.

    OMG ONE LOG LEFT!!!!!!!! (not including the 30th) Ive searched each location a thousand times and cant find that last one!
  • Patius - September 29, 2009 3:53 a.m.

    Hey, could you guys give more info for Audio Log 20? I can't find it. It's a little vague, and I have no idea where exactly where I'm supposed to be to get it.
  • mittens - September 29, 2009 1:43 a.m.

    Will you put the audio log videos 15 - 30 up like you did the first ones? I enjoyed watching them because I don't have the time to find all of them and I don't care about gamerscore. Thanks
  • jar-head - September 28, 2009 7:20 p.m.

    went from Dawn till the Next night with three other Swat friends, on legendary, scoped the Entire city, thanks to the mangooses...and well...there's Alot of covenant from start to finish, if you have crappy spotters, your ODST expereince is going to be Horrible...on the other hand, have great memebers, and it'll change
  • Spiderman12 - September 28, 2009 4:34 p.m.
