Halo 3: ODST - Audio Log guide

NMPD Headquarters to Kikowani Station

Audio Log 26

Next, we’ll head east, then north, collecting the last remaining audio logs on the way to Kikowani Station. First, head back to where you found Audio Log 24 and continue following the high road to your east. Turn right to enter the north entrance of the large plaza and enter the alleyway on the far eastern side of the plaza. You’ll find Audio Log 26 at the very end of this alley, just west of the blocked traffic gate.

Audio Log 27

Head back to the plaza and leave through the north exit. Stay to your right as you follow the road and you’ll see another supply cache to your left. You can load up on ammo, weapons, and grenades here. You can also grab a new Mongoose if your old one is getting beat up. Continue north towards the next courtyard, and you’ll find Audio Log 27 on the stairs to your left.

Audio Log 28

From Audio Log 27, just head north through the traffic gate and continue onward until you reach the next plaza. You’ll see Audio Log 28 right in the middle of the plaza in the form of a gigantic Optican Dispenser.

Audio Log 29

Head west from Audio Log 28 and stay to your right as you round the corner. Just before you enter the large courtyard ahead of you, look for the stairway to your right. Head up the stairway to reach the final audio log on the Mombasa Streets map.

Data Hive

Audio Log 30

Now that you’ve collected the first 29 audio logs from the Mombasa Streets map, it’s time to get your final audio log. Exit back to the main menu and select the Data Hive mission. This can be completed on any difficulty level, so we recommend doing it on easy.

After you’ve descended into the area, you’ll run into a mysterious soldier who will escort you down to level 9. If the soldier dies, you’ll miss out on your chance to grab the final audio log. So stay ahead of him and kill all Covenant you encounter as fast as possible to be safe.

Above: The soldier will order you to guard the door. Who does he think he is? 

Once you reach the lower icy level, the soldier will excuse himself and tell you to watch out for enemies while he sneaks away to check in on something. Don’t listen to him. Instead, follow him into the laboratory and wait for him to reveal his true mission.

Above: Shoot the soldier. Then grab the Audio Log 30 in the back corner of the laboratory. Congratulations! 

Above: Make sure you teabag him a few times to teach him a lesson for being such a tool 

Above: Here is Audio Log 30. You’ll also get 75G for the Audiophile Achievement

  • 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. :\
  • GamesRadarTylerNagata - September 30, 2009 10:04 p.m.

    @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.
