There are several Dog Tags littered throughout Battlefield 4’s campaign mode. Whenever you’re near a collectible Dog Tag, you will hear a sound similar to the one that plays when you acquire a new weapon or when you’re awarded with a medal.
Battlefield 4 Dog Tags Locations
There are a total of 19 Dog Tag collectables in the single-player campaign.
The Baku campaign mission has three collectible Dog Tags:
Dog Tag #1 – Nice Play
Location: First room on the right of the passage at the very start of the game (during the tutorial). The Dog Tag is pinned to a bulletin board on the left wall with a knife.
Dog Tag #2 – One Way Trip
Location: The second dog tag can be found near the courtyard, during the C4 tutorial. Instead of jumping down into the room where the weapon cache is, jump over the hole. The tags can be collected from the shutters of the middle window.
Dog Tag #3 – Sergeant Dunn
Location: The final Dog Tag in Baku can be obtained after the sequence where the building collapses on your squad. The Dog Tag is on the co-pilot seat of the crashed helicopter, and must be obtained before getting into the car.
Shanghai also has three Dog Tags for you to collect:
Dog Tag #1 – One Man Riot
Location: The first Dog Tag is close to the place where your squad spawns at the beginning of the mission. Head down the alleyway and go left at the end. The tags will be hanging on a door with a glowing red light.
Dog Tag #2 – Going Up
Location: At the start of the ‘Lobby Assault’ sequence, look over the elevator. The tags should be easy to spot.
Dog Tag #3 – Business Casual
Location: Right at the end of the tank chase, you’ll find yourself in a back-alley. The Dog Tag can be found on a gate behind a tree there, which should be to your right at the end of the chase.
South China Sea
Like the other two, South China Sea also has three collectible Dog Tags:
Dog Tag #1 – Carcharodon
Location: In the first hallway at the start of the level, head up to the two men standing close to the red lights at the end. Just before you reach them, you’ll find a barracks room to your right. The Dog Tag is on the top bunk.
Dog Tag #2 – Lord of the Waves
Location: This set of tags is underwater. During the swimming trials, follow your squad mates to the room in which you resurface. The Dog Tag will be by the rubble pile next to the green-lit door adjacent to the entrance to the room.
Dog Tag #3 – Agent Kovic
Location: After rescuing Hannah; instead of following your squad-mates, go right towards the crashed helicopter on the deck. The tags are on the co-pilot seat.
There are three more Dog Tags for you to collect in the Singapore campaign mission:
Dog Tag #1 – Horizontal Rain
Location: At the beach; right at the beginning of the level, you’ll find a boat. Make your way over to the side of the boat facing the water and you’ll find the Dog Tag there.
Dog Tag #2 – Armored Column
Location: Continue along the mission and you’ll reach a club where Hannah and Irish start arguing. Walk around to the other side of the bar with red stools. Look down and you’ll find the tags on the floor.
Dog Tag #3 – The Grounded
Location: The last tag is on the blue and white plane inside the hangar. Hop on to its left wing using the ramp nearby and make your way to the plane’s body. The Dog Tag will be on the door.
The Kunlun Mountains is the last mission in the campaign with three Dog Tag collectables:
Dog Tag #1 – Cage Fighter
Location: After meeting with Irish again after breaking him out, make your way to the holding cells in the next room to your right. Go to the last cell. The Dog Tag should be inside, on the left wall.
Dog Tag #2 – Freedom At Any Cost
Location: This Dog Tag can be acquired by proceeding up the catwalk and scaling the wall to the left from the room where you must protect Dima while he hacks the control room. The tags are stuck to an electrical box with a knife.
Dog Tag #3 – Shaw-Shanked Redemption
Location: You can find the last set of tags for this mission under the tram platform, during the encounter at the tram bridge.
The Tashgar campaign mission has two collectible Dog Tags:
Dog Tag #1 – Destruction Enthusiast
Location: This set of tags is inside a blue, destructible truck which can be located right in front of the building with the blue blankets above its staircase. During the bridge encounter, destroy the truck, climb into the back and grab the Dog Tag.
Dog Tag #2 – Upstream Swimmer
Location: After the helicopter encounter, climb up using the ladder to the left. Once at the top, jump over to the black scaffolding, the Dog Tag should be on it.
The last campaign mission has just two sets of collectible tags:
Dog Tag #1 – The Rebel
Location: During the flight deck encounter, get to the white plane by scaling its right wing. Once on the body, make your way to the back. The tags should be stuck into its side with a knife.
Dog Tag #2 – Fleet Guardian
Location: Once you reach the infirmary inside Valkyrie, look at the beds during the Jin Jie speech. The final set of tags is on one of them.
This concludes the Battlefield 4 Dog Tags locations guide for single-player’s campaign.
