UNSC, Banished, & Spartan audio log locations - Halo Infinite

Track down every single audio log in Halo Infinite from the UNSC, Banished, and the Spartans.

1

Halo Infinite has a lot of audio logs for players to find. There are audio logs for the UNSC, Banished, and the Spartans that made it to Zeta Halo. Audio logs from each faction are broken into separate sections, which will help you track down the ones you are missing. Some of these audio log locations are easy to find while others are dotted out in the middle of nowhere.

Halo Infinite audio logs

There are dozens of audio logs in Halo Infinite and all of them fall into a few categories: UNSC, Banished, and Spartan. Within these categories are sub-sections like Escharum’s Testimony or The Prisoner.

For the most part, it appears as if the audio logs are unlocked in a specific sequence, regardless of what order you pick them up in. For example, the Infinity’s Approach series under the UNSC are at each of the Forward Operating Bases. The fifth one you find will always be called Zero Hour, but you might find it at FOB Delta and not FOB Bravo. Keep this in mind as you track them down using the following guide.

One tip for finding the audio logs to fill up your database is that you can hear the recording beeping as you get near them. Also, use the scanner function to highlight nearby collectibles. Audio logs will be a yellow color.

Use the following links to jump to the section of audio logs you need to find:
