Metal Gear Solid 5 tape locations: How to unlock all music tapes for the full soundtrack

How to track down every single music tape in the game.

As you might have gathered by now, Hideo Kojima's fond of an 80s track or two, and there are plenty of these tunes to add to your collection as you play through Phantom Pain. In order to increase your repertoire of available tunes, you'll need to seek out the many music tapes sprinkled here and there. Unless you're turning the place upside down as you play though, you're likely to miss a few.

On this page, you'll find the location of every one of these tapes, so keep your eyes peeled for them as you play. Some of them can only be pilfered during later missions in the game, but if you've made a lot of progress you can always go back and grab any that are missing from your collection. Happy hunting!
