Finding Audio logs and Dog Tags in Aliens: Colonial Marines earns you XP and increases your Rank bar. A higher rank will help you both in the single player and multiplayer. Finding Dog Tags can be a tricky job since they are so small in size and can easily be looked past.
Audio Logs though can be sighted pretty easily. The following guide will help you find each and every one of them in the game. Additionally we’ve also posted locations to Legendary weapons and the Newt’s Doll, which in turn rewards you with 20 achievement points on the Xbox 360 and a bronze trophy on the PS3.
Dog Tag #14 Location. Once you enter the yard look for the large container on the left. The dog tag is on top of it.
Dog Tag #15 Location. The next tag is outside the large garage door, across the yard.
Dog Tag #16 Location. Inside the garage, look for the tag behind a box under the first stairwell.
Legendary Weapon: Hudson’s Pulse Rifle Location. Pick up the rifle from the corner office after you’ve reunited with O’Neal.
Newt’s Doll (Head) Location. Pull the third switch in the sewer and continue forward into unknown territory. Soon enough you’ll come across three barrels with the head on top of one. Approach to earn the achievement.
Audio Log #5 Location. After Bella tells you she’s afraid of heights, drop down the hole and turn around to see the laptop.
Audio Log #6 Location. Disable the first turret and take the log from top of the yellow containers in the armory.
Audio Log #7 Location. One of the turrets is aiming down a hallway, head over there and open the door at the end to find the log.
Dog Tag #17 Location. After witnessing a dropship trying to dodge falling Sephora debris, look for the tag on a metal plate with a cracked helmet in the wreckage.
Dog Tag #18 Location. There is a yellow container on the left side of the map. The tag will be there amongst the wreckage.
Dog Tag #19 Location. It’s on the same console that O’Neal hacks to access the manifest.
Legendary Weapon: Vasquez’s Smartgun Location. Head for the garage door where the Xenomorphs are ravaging Weyland-Yutani’s soldiers. Turn around and go for the stack of pallets in the corner of the room.
