Collectible Intel Locations

Chapter 1

  • Intel #1: When you find the soldier corpse in the open area, look for this intel taped onto the back of an oil truck.
  • Intel #2: You’ll find the crashed plane’s black box (orange in-game) at the bottom of the steps taking you into the passenger’s seating area.

Chapter 2

  • Intel #3: At the beginning of the chapter, you’ll be asked to jump down from a higher area. Instead of hopping down, look at the end of the walkway for a sitting area with a large umbrella set up.
  • Intel #4: Eventually you’ll reach an area with television cameras set up. Get yourself ahead of those cameras, and look in the sand for a buried videotape.

Chapter 3

  • Intel #5: Aftern overhearing Castavin, you’ll jump down from a ledge. Look left and on the ground after jumping down to find this intel.

Chapter 4

  • Intel #6: In the first hallway, before going up the stairs, run ahead and turn left to find a doll.
  • Intel #7: Entering Castavin’s safe house, look on his desk before taking the ropes out.

Chapter 5

  • Intel #8: At the Gym after crossing a bridge at the bottom floor, look for a room left of the bridge to find another piece of intel.
  • Intel #9: After crossing the metal bridge into the top floor apartment, run upstairs and look inside the bedroom for your intel.

Chapter 6

  • Intel #10: Entering “Camp Truth” you’ll find some bodies in a room. Look for a table with torture implements to find your intel.

Chapter 7

  • Intel #11: Before entering the evac point, look for your intel hanging from one of the nearby stop signs.
  • Intel #12: Leaving the storefront at the end of the plaza, look for intel near a sniper rifle.

  • Intel #19: Find the stairs that take you out of the camp and to the bridge — you can find a shrine on the left of the path before reaching the steps.

Chapter 14

  • Intel #20: Encountering your first turret of the chapter, look into the room on the left to find intel leaning against a chair inside.
  • Intel #21: After killing the heavily armored soldier with the auto-shotgun, you’ll find a shrine to lost soldiers with a hanging American flag. Collect the note taped to the flag for your intel.
