Achievement Guide:
There are 32 mission specific audio logs and 42 'common' (or shared?) audio logs, for a total of 74. Each mission/level awards 2 specific audio logs -- one is for simply winning the mission, and the other is for satisfying all of the primary objectives. The 'common' audio logs are awarded when the mission specific audio logs have already been awarded (ex: replaying a mission/level), or when the objective requirements haven't been met (ex: failed to defend one or more of the objectives but still won).

You will obtain most of the audio logs while going for several other achievements (completing the story lines, what if missions, Tough as nails, etc.), so leave this one for the clean up.

The most commonly missed audio logs are the ones that require that you 'shut out' the opponent by successfully defending the first objective. This can sometimes be tricky in co-op/versus play, so setting up custom freeplay games (1 vs 0) on those maps and simply letting the clock run out will usually suffice to mop up those pesky audio logs.

Additionally, keep in mind that it is possible to jump into a co-op/versus game where one or more of the offensive objectives had already been completed, so running through those levels on custom freeplay will allow you to confirm that you did indeed satisfy all of the objectives when you win the mission/level.

Finally, objectives that seem to be mutually exclusive do not have to be satisfied explicitly...

Example #1: you do not have to actually "Disable the Bot" on "Chopper Down" (Resort, Security) if you are able to "Defend the Pillar". Satisfying "Defend the Pillar" by shutting out the enemy will get you both audio logs (or doing shut-out twice in custom freeplay).

Example #2: you can get both audio logs on "Day 7: Attack on CCity" (Container City, Resistance) without actually satisfying the "Disable the Maintenance Bot" objective. If you manage a shut-out by satisfying "Defend the Gate" and the bot hasn't come around at that point, you will still get both audio logs (or doing shut-out twice in custom freeplay). Although you can switch sides to bring the bot forward in custom freeplay, it has been confirmed that it is not required for the audio log to be awarded.

- any audio logs not specifically listed above can be obtained on any mission/level, even the same one played over and over;
- you can change sides as needed in custom freeplay;
- audio logs are not awarded for the challenges (you can get them all without playing a single challenge mission);
- audio logs are not campaign dependent (you can get them all in freeplay without playing a single campaign mission);
- audio logs are not awarded for leveling, nor are they level dependent (you can get any of them with a rank 1 char);
- audio logs are not tied to a single character (i.e. you can use all 10 of the char slots to collect them);
