Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes Cassette Tape locations guide

As the other main collectible in Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, finding all of the cassette tapes will help to fill in the game's backstory and will also award you with the Information Trophy/Achievement.

Some of the cassette tapes are hidden away, whereas others are unlocked by completing specific challenges, but we've tracked them all down to present their locations on page two of this handy guide.

    Awesome. Thanks, I found it. I have all of Chicos cassette tapes and I'm trying to find all the rest of the random ones. I have 7 of Chicos cassette tapes, then another cassette tape called Chico's Tapes (All) (which is unlocked after collecting all 7 of his tapes), Agent's Recording, Classified Intel Data, Pre-mission Brief: Mission Background and Intel, Paz's Spy Log: Big Boss & Mother Base, MOTHER BASE MUSIC SELECTION, METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES, Déjà-Vu, and Paz's Diary. I think there's 17 total so I'm only missing one more...

    I ended up using the XOF patches guide so I figured might as well say thanks by listing the tapes Ive found so far since none are here so far. Chico tape 1: side op, obtained on completion of mission "Intel Operative Rescue" Chico tape 2: main op, obtained from searching the admin building guard tower (tallest one, attached to that huge vehicle door that opens/closes), to get up there you have to go past that door and (following the wall its attached to, almost towards the end of that wall where it becomes a right corner) you'll finally get to a ladder that takes you up high to a metal walk way which then takes you to the guard tower. Should be right there on the desk inside it Chico tape 3: main op, unmissable (earned during storyline) Brought to you by the reptilians who pull the strings. the truth is out there. look at the eyes. kojima world order.
