All Intel Locations On Outbreak (All Regions) - Black Ops Cold War: Zombies


The Dark Aether story continues in Season 2 of Black Ops Cold War with exciting new Intel introduced in the brand new Zombies game mode called Outbreak. There is new Intel added to the existing Firebase Z map as well.

Given the massive size of the Outbreak regions, it is almost impossible to find the Intel scattered around without help. If you're looking for Outbreak Intel locations, then you've come to the right place. In this guide, we show you all the Intel locations in Outbreak for all regions.

As always, all these Intel are available to be collected in the form of audio logs, documents, radio transmissions, and artifacts. While some of these have fixed locations, others can only be obtained by killing the elite zombies (Russian Manglers, Mimics, Megatons, etc.)

These Intel help you understand the Dark Aether story from the perspective of the four central "teams" involved in the story: Requiem, Omega, Maxis, and Dark Aether. Below, we have listed all the Intel locations and how to obtain them in the Outbreak mode.

TOP GAMEPLAY HIGHLIGHTS

Unlike the other two maps (Die Maschine & Firebase Z) that are round-based, the new Outbreak mode is difficulty-based, and every time you move to a higher difficulty, you get a different region. There are four main regions: Alpine, Ruka, Golova, & Sanatorium. Every time you move up a difficulty, you get the next region and loop back around to the first one once you've visited all four.

You will find the Intel in all these four regions. Some of the Intel are region-specific only, while the rest can be obtained in any one of the four regions.

Season 2

Requiem

Artifacts

  • Zombie Head: There is one general objective-based artifact that you can obtain in any one of the regions. It all depends on whether or not you get this objective. This is the objective where you will be asked to pick up a zombie head specimen and put it inside a container. It is called the "Specimen Analyzer."

    As soon as you pick up the head, it will be added as an artifact Intel.

  • Aetherium Crystal Shard
    Region: Ruka
    The Aetherium Crystal Shard is found in the far southeastern part of the Ruka region. The crystal is sitting on top of a rock.

  • Frost Blast Canister
    Region: Alpine
    You can find the artifact on top of the Ski Lift at the Base Landing area.

    You can either parachute on top of the structure or jump up on it using the shed just beside the lift.

  • Aetherium Canister
    Region: Golova
    You can find the Aetherium Canister on top of the pipes located at the Train Loading area in the far western section of the Golova region.

Documents

There are four documents that you can get in Outbreak. These are dropped randomly when you kill the elite zombies (Russian Mangler, Mimic, Megaton, etc.).

Look for a yellow highlighted item on the ground after killing the elite zombies.

These can be obtained in ANY region. The following are all the documents you can acquire for Requiem:

  • Operation Threshold Authorization
  • Domino Effect
  • Recon Rover Blueprint
  • Disruptor Satellite Blueprint

    Kravchenko's Knife is found inside one of the lookout towers at the Missile Silos.

Documents

You can get three documents for the Omega group by killing the elite zombies, as mentioned before.

The following are the three Omega documents that you can obtain in Outbreak:

  • New Frontiers
  • Omega Staffing Report
  • Omega Records Review

  • Empty Jugger-Nog
    Region: Alpine
    The artifact is found on the roof of the bathhouse located at the southern end of the Alpine region.

    You can use the cliff by the bathhouse to parachute onto the roof. The Empty Jugger-Nog is by the Chimney head.

  • Cymbal Monkey Toy
    Region: Golova
    You can find the Cymbal Monkey Toy at the Golova Church in the southern part of the Golova region.

    It's a bit tricky to get to the Cymbal Monkey toy artifact. First, enter the church, and you will notice a scaffolding structure with a set of ladders leading up to the top of the church.

    Climb up. Once at the top, go out through the window and turn right. You will find some wooden crates. Use them to climb up to the higher level again.

    Keep moving forward and jump across to the pillar structure. Keep hugging the structure, and you will eventually reach the side facing the town. The cymbal monkey toy will be sitting at the ledge.

  • Ivan's Head
    Region: Ruka
    The artifact is located at the far eastern section of the Ruka region in the Rocky Hillside.

    You need to walk up to the Train Trestle and jump on the electric pole where the head is. You can parachute up to the pole and collect the head.

Documents

There are four documents that you can get by completing trials from the trial computer, similar to how you obtained the Dark Aether documents and other Intel on Die Maschine and Firebase Z. You must keep doing the trials until you see a folder on the trial computer. The folder indicates that doing the next trial will reward you with an Intel.

Once completed, you will get a message pop up saying "Reward Available: Intel"

You can then go to the same trial computer and collect the Intel. Note that these trial computers spawn in random places all around the map in each region. Make sure you open up your map to check the location of the trial computer.

The following are the four document Intel you can obtain in Outbreak:

  • Hello Again
  • Divided World
  • Trust Me
  • More To Follow

Season 2 Reloaded

The mid-season update of Black Ops Cold War & Warzone introduced a lot of new Intel that gives additional insight towards the Zombies' Dark Aether storyline. The new Intel is added in the existing three regions: Alpine, Ruka, and Golova. There's also a brand new region introduced in Outbreak with a new radio signal easter egg and new Intel.

Most of the Intel added are either Radio Transmissions or Audio Logs. You can collect the Audio Logs in the same way as always by going to the specific locations and collecting the Intel except for the Dark Arther transmissions and logs, which can only be obtained via the Trials.

The Radio Transmissions are collected the same way as before by interacting with the Radios set in fixed locations. This time, these radios have a fixed location in each region. But, you can collect the transmissions from these radios at any one of the regions. The only catch is that you can only collect one per game.

Requiem

There are four new Audio Logs spread across different regions in the Outbreak mode.

Please refer to the player marker for the exact locations on the map overview.

    The audio log is on the back of an abandoned truck parked near the western edge of the Alpine region. This is the same truck that sometimes holds a launch pad on it.

  • Radio Transmissions

    There are three new Requiem radio transmissions across all four regions. These radios have a fixed location in each region, and you can only collect one Requiem radio transmission Intel per game.

    The following are the locations of the Requiem radios in all four regions.

    • Alpine: The radio is found inside the bathhouse which is located in the southern part of Alpine.

      Head inside the bathhouse, and you will find it resting on the front reception.

      It is a yellow house. Head to the second floor, and take the first right door to enter the office. The radio will be on the work desk.

    As mentioned before, you can collect the Radio Transmissions from any of these but only once per game. The best way to collect the radio transmissions is by collecting one type (types: Requiem, Omega, & Maxis) per game in whatever region you're in and then restarting the game.

    The following is a list of all Requiem radio transmissions:

    • Race Against Time

  1. Just FYI, they added a new Easter Egg/Artifact in Ruka. It's a transmitter, but with a weak signal, so, you need to find 3 nearby amplifiers and tune them and you and you will hear "the transmission"

    1. Hi Sturgeon!

      Thanks for the heads up. We're aware of the new easter egg and working on getting a guide out as soon as possible. Just making sure we have all the locations!

    1. Hi Rudy, this guide is complete and contains all the Intel in the game so far as per our knowledge. If you think we have missed any Intel, please feel free to let us know and we will make sure to add it in!

  2. Thank you very much for this awesome guide!
    I found an Audio Log on Alpine. It is located on the back of a truck. I think it is the one in the west near the game-boarder (base suits). Hope this helps!

    1. Hi Chad!

      Unfortunately, they've still not fixed the bugged Dark Aether transmissions. Just tried it again before commenting. Hopefully, they will fix it soon!

      1. May i ask which Dark Aether Transmissions are supposed to be bugged? If it's Outbreak I can confirm they aren't. Just finished. Only have to finish the Dark Aether Trial Intel from Die Maschine.

        1. Hi Phynster! It's the new Season 2 reloaded radio transmissions under the Dark Aether category that you collect from the Trial machine. The following are the bugged Intel. I got them from the trial machine but it does not register them due to them being bugged.

          1) Testing...Testing...
          2) New Enemies

  3. Your missing an audio log for reqium called killer crystals. I am currently trying to find where this is though

    1. Hi Aidan!

      Thanks for your comment. The Intel is now added with the exact location where you can find it.

  4. Hello, Love your guide, used it to get MOST of the Intels. Gettig bogged down by the Dark Aether Intels. But I also noticed your missing some. There is a total of 6 Requiem Audio Logs in Outbreak, you have 4. There is 7 Omega Audio Logs in Outbreak, you have 6. There is 4 Maxis Audio Logs in Outbreak, you have 3. and I'm pretty sure the ones you are missing, are all going to be on Alpine, as that is the only region from Reloaded you don't mention.

    1. Hi Phynster!

      Thanks a lot for your positive feedback on the guide. We've added all the missing Intel!

  5. Thank you for this wonderful guide. I will never climb a church, break their windows and jump the roof top like a monkey just to find a clang clang souvenir. Really saved my time collecting intels.

    1. Hi boxofarrows!

      Glad to hear this guide helped you on your Intel hunt. Thanks a lot for your comment!

  6. Having issues with the last 2 Dark Aether radio transmissions. I did the trials. Got the intel. When I exfil they are still missing.

    1. Hi Insane!

      Yes, those two radio transmissions are currently bugged. We will have to wait for a fix, unfortunately!

    1. Hi Chris!

      There are only 4 new audio logs in Season 2 reloaded for Maxis. If you're missing any, then it might be from Firebase Z. Please refer to our Firebase Z Intel guide to see if you're missing any Maxis audio log from there.
