Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare All Intel Locations

How to find missing Intel?: In-game the Intel will appear simply as black thin laptops with their blue screen turned on, usually found on computer desks or tables, that you can pick up to collect when you stand next to it. It can be confirmed as being Intel simply by walking up to it, as the on-screen text will then tell you can press and hold the action button/key to “Secure Intel”.

At the which point the game will tell you that “1 of 45 pieces of enemy intel found”, a number that will indicate your progress as you collect more Enemy Intel pieces.

Does the game save each Intel you collect?: Yes, the game will automatically save the Intel you just collected if you picked up the Intel by 100% uploading the Enemy Intel. So you do not have to play to the end of the mission or even reach the next checkpoint to save your progress. After picking up each collectible you can safely “save and quit” the mission from the pause menu without losing collectibles progress.

Note: Collecting the Intel will go at a pace of exactly 3 Intel collectibles per mission. There are 15 missions in the single player campaign, making for a total of 45 Intel waiting to be found by you.

Tip: In Mission Select you can see how many Intel you have found in each mission. Since the Intel are not missable, you can search for the missing items at any point during or after completing the campaign’s storyline.

Where to find all Intel in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare? The in-game collectibles locations for the Enemy Intel are described with handy voice-over tips by Maka in this detailed video guide.

The Intel are listed in the video in the order that they appear chronologically.
