Resident Evil 5 Guide
BSAA Emblem Locations
BSAA stands for Bioterrorism Security Assesment Alliance, and they have their own emblems. Throughout the game, as easter eggs, these turquoise colored emblems can be found attached on walls, on top of poles in the distance, hidden between cracks in walls, you name it. It'll be very difficult finding them all on your own, and while it's certainly a noble attempt to try and find as many as you can by yourself, you might want to find the ones you looking for so badly that you just can't take it anymore. Well, you're in luck!
This is a list with all BSAA Emblems you can find in the game. Not all chapters actually have BSAA Emblems, and some have a lot where others have only one. I hope you'll find this list useful in spotting them. Needless to say, some of the Emblems are practically impossible to shoot without the aid of a Rifle, so if you go out hunting for BSAA Emblems, be sure to take a Rifle with you. Good luck, you might need it!

Chapter 1-1: Civilian Checkpoint
Chapter 1-2: Public Assembly
Go inside the building with the stairs that has a balcony. Check the western room that also contains a First Aid Spray. Head up the balcony and check the building across the street to the south to spot the Emblem.
When you've entered the building with the black goo, right before you jump over the gap to a chest with Gold Bars, look up and find the Emblem right under a water tank.
Before you end the chapter by using the elevator, check behind the fence to your right and spot the Emblem next to a ventilator in the background.
Chapter 2-1: Storage Facility
Check the southern wall of the storage hall you start in. The Emblem is attached to this wall, somewhere up there.
When you've crossed the bridge and are about the enter the sewers, turn around and closely inspect the large bridge's support. The Emblem is located here.
At the docks area, locate the small green hut near the closed door at the jetty, and look at the back of this hut. Spot the Emblem in a gap under the roof.
When Kirk has arrived to provide backup at the docks area, climb the building to the right (northwest) and get over to the spot with the Green Herb. Spot the Emblem through a window in the building across the street.
In Shanty Town, right before you perform the Assist Jump with Sheva, turn around and spot the Emblem on the roof ledge up, a little to the right.
Chapter 2-2: Train Station
Climb the trains and inspect the pylon in the distance to the west. Spot the Emblem on top of it.
In the mines you'll have to make your way over a bridge with a waterfall. The Emblem is to your right high up in the waterfall.
In the mining area you'll have to climb a very long ladder at some point. Instead of moving on, turn around and equip your rifle. Turn around and inspect the factory building in the distance.
Chapter 2-3: Savannah
Chapter 3-1: Marshlands
You'll start on an island. From here, check out the wired pole in the distance to the northwest. The Emblem is attached to it. If you're playing with someone else you can sail nearby it and have them shoot it, or shoot it yourself when they're sailing.
Go to the settlement in the northwest corner and spot the Emblem under the roof of the hut.
Head to the center island (where horrific creatures roam), and spot the Emblem under the hut by standing on the jetty near the boat.
When you've opened up the door by placing the slates, drop down in the marshes, turn around and find the Emblem under the wooden walkway.
Chapter 3-2: Execution Ground
After making your way out of the execution ground through a tunnel, you'll get to some Tricell tents. Go behind the tents and spot the Emblem between the tents.
At the harbor, when the timer starts running, inspect the cabin at the end of the jetty. The Emblem will be inside.
Chapter 3-3: Oil Field - Drilling Facilities
This one is located in the middle/on top of the first gate you cross under. If you miss it while boating under it, you can still shoot the lower half from the other side.
Chapter 4-1: Caves
Make your way through the caves and climb a short ladder. Head over the bridge and spot the Emblem in the ravine to your right, on the lower side.
This one requires a rifle. When you enter the ancient civilization, check the shiny lens in the distance and spot the Emblem at the base of the lens.
In the labyrinth area with the several colored statues, make your way to the top by jumping over a gap near a torch, located to the right (east) from where you enter. The Emblem is located above the jade/green statue.
Chapter 4-2: Worship Area
When you make it to the bottom floor of the laser/mirror puzzle, the Emblem will be located in the northern room, right above the doorway.
Chapter 5-1: Underground Garden
At the flower cave you start out in, make your way over to the right (eastern) side of the area and spot the Emblem underneath the catwalk that leads to the labs.
Chapter 5-2: Experimental Facility
After you've made your way over the conveyor belt with the gas cylinder packages, check the open dumpster to find the Emblem inside of it.
Chapter 5-3: Uroboros Research Facility
Exit the area in which you fought the boss in the previous chapter, and check behind the large fan to the right.
When you reach the rotating platform, have it move and wait for it to stop for the first time. When it does, look for the emblem on floor of the balcony on which the Majini is standing, holding down the lever to stop the rotating elevator.
Inside the ruins area, before summoning the elevator, move around the shaft and spot the Emblem down the shaft.
Chapter 6-1: Ship Deck
This one's impossible without a rifle. Aim for the top of the radar mast at the very far end of the ship deck. The Emblem is pinned on top of it, and will most likely require several shots. Try to shoot it when you've made yourself to a higher area, possibly the crane.
When Sheva gets trapped in a cage, the BSAA Emblem will be located in the northern contained out of which Majini's spawn. It's quite possible to get it by blowing up a Majini holding a dynamite stick, or by throwing a grenade inside, but you can't aim at it with guns.
In the room in which you meet Excella, spot this final emblem behind the spotlight that is shining on the flowers. It's in a cabinet behind glass, which is located on the wall to the north.
