Alien: Isolation ID Tags Locations ‘The Taken’ Guide

To unlock "The Taken" achievement/trophy in Alien: Isolation, you need to collect 50 ID tags in the game and we have the locations for them.

In Alien: Isolation, you assume the role of Amanda Ripley and embark upon a journey of uncovering the mystery of your mother’s disappearance. Soon after reaching the Sevastopol Station, you realize that it is not only Ellen Ripley who has gone missing, but a lot of other crew members as well.
