The Audio Logs work in pretty much the same fashion they do in other game such as Bioshock and Dead Space. You find one up, you pick it up, and then you’re treated to some bonus story exposition that details the background of some character or event.
Finding the Audio Logs also unlocks two achievements. Collecting half of all the logs will net you the ‘Listening In’ Achievement (20G) while locating all of them gets you ‘The Whole Story’ (50G). So without further ado, let’s get into the guide:
Chapter #1: Helios-1
Audio Log #1 Location: Early on, when you hack the door to save the Vulcan, check out the corner of the room near the hacking station. The log is lying on the ground here.
Audio Log #2 Location: Found right after you take the elevator up to the airlock. Leave the elevator and walk down the hallway while keeping an eye on the left. You should see a table with this log on it before long.
Audio Log #3 Location: After the scene where you meet T’Mar look left when you regain control of your character. The Audio Log is on another table to the right in this room.
Chapter #2: New Vulcan
Audio Log #4 Location: Found a little bit after entering the Vulcan Laboratories. After accompanying Surok deeper into the colony keep a lookout for a dead Vulcan at a desk. There is a log behind this desk.
Audio Log #5 Location: Soon you will spot an infected Vulcan behind a window. Enter the room and take him down. Now hack the door at the other end of the room and enter to find this log on top of a crate.
Audio Log #6 Location: Found in Surok’s Laboratory. When you reach the room with the fire out front take a peek behind the desk to the left to find this thing
Audio Log #7 Location: Eventually you will get into a fight with a Gorn Brute. After the fight, this log is found in the next room. Look left as you enter, next to the dead Vulcan.
Audio Log #8 Location: When you reach the Vulcan Laboratories again keep an eye out for a room with a small fire against the wall. A few doors after this you will reach a room with a conference table in it. There is a log on this table.
Audio Log #9 Location: Soon after the last log you will come to a room where you need to cross some electrified water. Go to the door that isn’t your objective. There you will find the log on the floor next to a chair.
Audio Log #10 Location: In the room directly after the last log you’ll get booster to the ceiling to access a locked lab. Look right as you enter to find another log.
