Note: All credit for this list should go to Shiftie over at x360a. He originally posted this guide at the thread linked below:

I just revised his walk-throughs slightly and added pictures and notes.

All BB-7 Recorders must be found on the same character for the achievement to unlock. Each BB-7 Recorder has a name associated with it (ie, Surrounded). You can view the BB-7 Recorders that you've collected at any time by entering the Pause Screen and checking the Notes (under the maps subsection). I would recommended collecting all BB-7 Recorders on each stage prior to finishing the stage. I've been told that you can go back for them, but I did not and cannot confirm that. With as buggy as achievements seem to be on Windows 8 games in general - I would recommend playing it safe.

Act 1 has two BB-7 Recorders.
Act 2 has two BB-7 Recorders.
Act 3 has three BB-7 Recorders.
Act 4 has three BB-7 Recorders.

Act 1 (Desert)

External image

BB-7 Recorder 1 (Surrounded) - During the first mission you'll be destroying digging machines throughout the stage. Right when you get a message saying the second digging machine is nearby, head to the NE part of the map to an area with a gap in the map (it's a crashed ship), where you'll find a dead body. Next to the body you'll find the recorder.

Recorder 2 (Within Reach)- After rescuing the downed pilot, proceed toward the next checkpoint and you'll see a body with another recorder near the checkpoint.

Act 2 (City)

External image

Recorder 3 (Entanglement) - While running around the city, you'll be tasked with destroying a warphole generator that will summon a huge Harvester army if you don't hurry up (though you're not timed). Shortly before entering the area called Blairgowrie (where the generator is) you'll see a small path branch off that is almost blocked by rubble. Walk around the rubble to find the corpse and his note.

Recorder 4 (Heavy Resistance)- After destroying the warphole device, you'll continue along a narrow path, bypassing a locked door with a busted keypad. As the path continues South-ish, a small dead end will appear on the North side of the path, across from where you need to go. You can see the corpse and recorder in plain view from the main path.

Act 3 (Catacombs)

External image

Recorder 5 (Seek and Destroy)- A little ways after the first mini-boss (he runs away after taking a small amount of damage) the path will split and the one leading away from the next objective ends at a bridge with a bridge lowering mechanism nearby. Hold down the left mouse button on the mechanism to lower the bridge, then continue across to the dead end to find the recorder.

External image

Recorder 6 (Changing Strategy) - After the SOS beacon ambush you'll cross a bridge that you must first lower using the nearby mechanism. Continue along the path to the objective (past a barricade and AIM Conveyor) until a path branches off to the North. Follow it to a group of three turrets (and a lot of other guys in the area) and you'll find this in the Northern alcove at the end of this path.

External image

Recorder 7 (Pushing On)- After using the main computer terminal to open a gate to the Royal Crypts, you'll proceed through an area with rafters as floors, with a wide stone path branching off of it as you progress toward the next objective. Follow this stone path to find the dead soldier and recorder at the end.

Act 4 (AIM Facility)

External image

Recorder 8 (Tip of the Iceberg ) - As you run through the soldier and spider filled halls after the minefield at the beginning of the area, you'll pass a few side tunnels. The recorder is at the end of the second tunnel you pass, behind some turrets.

External image

Recorder 9 (Check Your Corners) - After opening the door that requires three terminals to activate, you'll quickly come to another side path with the recorder at the end of it.

External image

Recorder 10 (Emergence) - After hearing that there is a weapons cache ahead (next objective) continue toward the objective and you'll be back in a rock tunnel. You'll pass the soldier and his recorder along this path, as they're about 5 feet from it.
