Even if they dont unlock a specific achievement or trophy, at least ten Watch Dogs Audio Logs must be found in order to achieve a 100% completion rate at the end of the video game, and to receive the XP bonus as well as the D12 shotgun.
Watch Dogs features a large number of Audio Logs that can be unlocked by completing additional investigations, playing the main-missions or by working on finding other collectibles.
Since the number required to receive the corresponding rewards is relatively small, compared to the number of Audio Logs in the videogame, these collectibles are fairly easy to retrieve.
In other words, to collect them you have to complete specific tasks in the video game, and also pay close attention to the environment while playing the games main missions.
Because the first area you explore early in the game is Parker Square District, you can collect all 10 Audio Logs required in the game, without leaving the district. The following guide explains how to find them faster, so you can unlock the XP boost; however, you have to remember that you can get more of them as you progress through the game.
For example, Aiden Pearce Audio Logs can be found inside his hideouts by hacking the laptops. For Angela Balik Audio Logs, you have to complete the ctOS Breach Contracts.
The same contracts unlock several Audio Logs belonging to Lucky Quinn.
While you dont have to find all of them, if you want additional details about the games story and its characters, follow our corresponding guides which explain where to find these Audio Logs and how to unlock them.
