BioShock 2 audio diary locations: Where to find every audio log

BioShock 2 Audio Diaries: Persephone Outer

(Note: These audio diaries are categorized under “Lamb” in the Messages section of your menu.)

Audio Diary #1 – “Selling Ryan Short”

Before reaching the Control Room with Eleanor’s cell, you’ll pass by a couple of examination rooms with banks of television monitors facing chairs. The audio diary is near the Little Sister vent here. You’ll wake up in this room later, so don’t worry if you miss it at first.

Audio Diary #2 – “Withholding Visitation”

After you pull the lever in Sofia Lamb’s office, continue down the hallway past the bookshelves. The audio diary is sitting on this chair at this desk. If you start climbing a long set of stairs, you’ve gone too far.

Audio Diary #3 – “Blessing in Disguise”

In a toy submarine to the left of the red Dr. Alexander statue.

Audio Diary #4 – “Behind Mother’s Back”

On the same desk as the Big Sister helmet you acquire for Eleanor.

Audio Diary #5 – “Freeing Father”

Check behind Eleanor’s bed when you’re bringing her the three pieces of the Big Sister suit. Do so before giving her the pieces.

BioShock 2 Audio Diaries: Inner Persephone

(Note: These diaries are categorized under “Persephone” in the Messages section of your menu.)

Audio Diary #1 – “Out With the Old…”

In the same room (Security Checkpoint A) as the panel you hacked through a broken window. Once you’ve unlocked the doors, just make sure to circle back around to this area through the glass tunnels before hitting the Prisoner Admittance Button.

Audio Diary #2 – “The Definition of Despair”

One of the cafeteria tables near the window.

Audio Diary #3 – “First Two Digits”

The next six audio diaries are located in the Holding area where you fight Sinclair. This one is on the upper level, in a Cell Block D toilet.

Audio Diary #4 – “A Trade”

Also in Cell Block D. This time, in the cell next to the turret.

Audio Diary #5 – “No More Hope Left”

Search the hanging corpse in Cell Block B, which is only accessible through a hole in the wall of Cell Block C.

Audio Diary #6 – “A Generous Offer”

In Block A, first cell on the left as you enter. There’s a corpse stuck in a wall hole.

Audio Diary #7 – “Last Two Digits”

Lower level of the Holding / Sinclair area. Follow the signs to Cell Block South Quad and look for the dark cell in the corner. The audio diary is through the glowing hole.

Audio Diary #8 – “Magic Sauce”

Inside the locked security tower with Sinclair.

Audio Diary #9 – “Legs, Mouths, Arms, and Eyes”

The next five audio diaries are located in the Therapy section of Persephone. This one is in the Recreational Therapy room, where you’ll see a Splicer painting. Behind her is a corpse lying on a couch. Search the body for the audio diary.

Audio Diary #10 – “A Simple Question”

Across from the Recreational Therapy room is the Intensive Therapy room. The audio diary is near one of the electric chairs.

Audio Diary #11 – “Destructive Learning”

Also in the Therapy section. Before heading down the hall to the Pediatric Ward, check the door you see above, surrounded by falling water. The audio diary is inside.

Audio Diary #12 – “Sacrifices”

Also in the Therapy section. Follow the signs to the Administration Office and, once there, go through the first door you see to find this room full of white cabinetry.

Audio Diary #13 – “A Stratagem for Sinclair”

Also in the Therapy section, on the bottom floor of the Administration Offices. Look left of all the Pneumo mail tubes.

Audio Diary #14 – “Such Freedom”

The final four audio diaries are located in the Infirmary section of Persephone. To grab this one, follow the signs to Ward A. You’ll pass through a long hallway with hospital room doors on either side. The last room on the left, next to the window, holds the audio diary.

Audio Diary #15 – “My Prison”

The Quarantine Area of the Infirmary. The audio diary is in the same room as the Power to the People weapon upgrade station. To get the door open, look for a switch on a column… but beware, hitting the switch will release two Alphas from their padded cells.

Audio Diary #16 – “They Feel Pain”

The Surgery section of the Infirmary. Located in the dark room with all of the bizarre X-rays on the wall.

Audio Diary #17 – “Alleviating Pain”

The Autopsy section of the Infirmary. On a draining table in the middle of the dark room, behind the hanging doctor corpse. Congratulations, you've found all of the BioShock 2 audio diary locations!
