Intel Missions return to Call of Duty: Warzone with the release of Season 5, helping us uncover the truth behind what is happening in Verdansk. This is the first Intel mission released after the new Season 5, and you can expect more in the coming weeks.
This week's Intel mission lead us to the location of a mysterious missing Operator who's final location is at the Gulag, discoverable after collecting all the Intel available this week.
You can find the first Intel in the tunnel near the Airport. Go to the Western side of the Airport and you will see a road leading you underground. Head straight through the tunnel and you will come across a sandbag covering station along with a set of Radio resting by it.
There will be a gold coin sitting on the Radio. This gold coin is your first Intel. Upon collecting the Intel, you will get the clue indicating the location of the next piece of Intel. You will notice that it will be a familiar picture, of an attack over the Airport from the ATC tower, which you might have already seen in the previous weeks.
This clue will have a text saying "ARM-2 confirmed strike. Stationed at Torsky Housing Area. Find them." This tells us that our next Intel will be found in the Torsky housing area.
According to the clue found after collecting the first Intel piece, you need to head over to the Torsky housing area, which is just south-east of the Superstore. It is the area where you have a building with an SOS sign on the roof.
Once you're there, head inside the outermost office building and you will find a pile of paper lying beside a desk. This desk is also has a phone which tells you the code for the Bunker 11 Easter Egg.
The pile of paper is your next Intel. Approach the pile and you will get a prompt to collect the Intel. Once you've received it, you will get an autopsy report which tells about the recovery of the bodies near the City Hall. It also mentions an impact likely indicating a crash of some sort.
You need to head over to the City Hall in Downtown Verdansk and you will notice a crashed helicopter next to it. Approach the helicopter, and you will be prompted to collect your third Intel.
After collecting the third Intel, you will get a distorted image which has low signal strength and asks to check interference on
- Comm Tower: South 1
- Comm Tower: South 2
- Comm Tower: BCH4
This is a clue that leads us to our next Intel. The following Intel requires us to go to three different radio communication towers and collect information from them.
To complete Intel 4, you will need to visit three radio towers and collect the information from them.
Radio Tower 1
The first tower is in the southernmost part of the map right between Promenade West and the Race Track. There are two office cabins, and the tower is next to them. Climb up on top of the tower, and you will get a prompt to collect the Intel.
Radio Tower 2
The second tower is near the Port of Verdansk. Keep going east towards the Port, and you will find the tower at the edge near the seashore next to Tavorsk Park. The tower is beside the little bridge/crossing taking you to the Port. Climb to the top and collect the Intel.
Radio Tower 3
The third and final radio tower is the easiest to locate. You need to head over to the TV Station, and there is only one radio tower next to it. Climb the tower and collect the Intel.
You can collect these tower Intel in any order. After the collection of the third one, you will get a Ghost prompt at the top right corner of the screen, indicating the successful registration of the Intel and the completion of this week's Intel mission.
Tip: After collecting the first radio tower Intel, you can go to the southern area and get the helicopter to go to the other towers. Or you can also go to the TV Station tower first, and if you're lucky then after collecting the Intel, you can get into the helicopter located on the roof of the TV Station as well.
Once you've collected all the Intel, you can back out of the game and go to your Intel mission screen to see the final Intel. This final Intel is a similar image to the previously distorted image, but now it says that the signal strength is high and shows the picture clearly.
It shows the Prison area indicating that the mysterious missing Operator is in the Gulag. We will know more about this as we uncover more in the coming weeks.
Can we do the Intel missions in both Battle Royale and Plunder?
Yes, you can do the Intel missions in both Battle Royale and Plunder mode.
I am not able to pick up the Intel / I am not getting the prompt “Collect Intel”
This usually happens when you haven't visited the Intel tab from the main menu. You need to go to the "Challenges" tab and then select "Missions" from the list. Then at the top, you will notice a new tab called "Intel". Open that up, and you will see your Intel missions.
You will see that they "Active" written beside them. Once the mission is active, you will be able to collect the Intel in the match.
Do we have to complete the whole match for the Intel to be registered?
No, you do not have to complete the full match. Once you've collected the Intel, you can leave the game if you wish to.
Can we collect all the Intel in one match?
No, you can only collect one piece of Intel per match.
