With the release of Season 1, Spec Ops received two new missions, including some brand new Intel to indulge players in the narrative side of the game. Like High Ground, we've also covered the Intel locations for Low Profile, Denied Area, and Defender: Mt. Zaya. Feel free to check out our Call of Duty guides library to find more.
In this guide, we've covered the locations of all ten Intel, including alternative spawn locations, if any. If you've already played High Ground, you must already know that it consists of two roles: Pilot and Ground Assault team.
To collect the Intel, you must select the Ground Assault team role, as all the Intel is inside buildings. Instruct your teammate in the chopper to cover you while you explore the area for the Intel collection.
Like the Denied Area mission, High Ground also has some radioactive Intel that can be located using the Geiger Counter. The first thing you do when you spawn is to collect the Geiger Counter. It is on the table at spawn to your right, where the weapon's station is.
The first Intel is located on the ground floor of the Office building. This is the first building where you are tasked to go and destroy the server equipment.
As you approach the building, you will see a window leading into a small room.
Enter the building through the window, and you will see the Intel on a small table between the door and the bunk bed.
The second Intel is also in the same building but upstairs. Exit the room, and take the stairs to your right. Be careful, as there are some enemies and a claymore as you approach the upper floor.
When you reach the upper floor, go to the room located at the far right corner of the corridor.
As you enter the room, you will find the Intel sitting on the wooden table in the middle of the room.
The third Intel is in a small house south of the Office building.
Enter the house, and you will find the Intel on the kitchen counter by the stove.
Intel 4 (Geiger Counter)
This Intel requires you to use your Geiger Counter to locate it. It can spawn in different locations within the same area. However, one of the most common and confusing locations for many is a small hut by the side of the road.
If your Geiger Counter points you toward this small hut, you will notice that the hut is locked. You have two ways to obtain the Intel inside of this hut.
The first is quite simple. All you need to do is to go to the left of the hut and stand by the wall. It will give you a prompt to collect the Intel through the wall.
The second and "legit" method to collect it is by asking your teammate in the chopper to shoot the door of the hut.
It will explode open, and you can enter to collect your Intel. Remember, if the Intel is not in the hut, it will be somewhere in the general vicinity around the hut or across the street.
The fifth Intel is inside the house directly south of the Market.
There are two possible spawn locations for Intel 5.
Possible Spawn Location 1
It can spawn on a wooden shelf on the ground floor by the stairs as you enter the house through the main entrance.
Possible Spawn Location 2
The second location is upstairs. It can spawn on a wooden shelf upstairs. It is directly in front of you as you reach the upper floor.
The sixth Intel is in a house west of the Market.
Enter the house, and the Intel is resting on the kitchen counter by the stove.
The seventh Intel is in a room inside the Market area. You can see the room's window as you approach the main Market building.
Go through the window, and you will find the Intel on the table to your immediate left. The Intel is in the form of a folder.
This Intel is also in the Market but on the opposite side of the room with the seventh Intel. First, go back to the main Market entrance.
Go through the archway, and enter the room to your right.
You will find the Intel on a table between two patient beds.
The ninth Intel is in the Compound building. This is the third location where the Ground Assault team needs to go to destroy the server equipment.
Enter the building via the main entrance, and use the stairs to your left to go upstairs.
Continue walking down the corridor, and you will see the Intel on a small table in the middle of the corridor.
Intel 10 (Geiger Counter)
The last Intel also requires a Geiger Counter, which is in the Compound area. Once again, it can be in a different spot for you, so be sure to use your Geiger Counter to find the exact location.
