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.
