As we move closer to the release of Black Ops - Cold War, the much-expected changes, and how those changes are expected to affect the Warzone map, seem to fall into place thanks to Intel missions and the story being revealed through them.
TOP GAMEPLAY HIGHLIGHTS
This week's Intel mission takes us to yet another Bunker. The opening of these Bunkers suggests that a nuke will go off (as speculated by the COD community) to reveal the new Warzone map incorporating both Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War.
Note that it is best to complete the full Intel mission in one sitting. Do not close your game until you've collected all the Intel. Leaving the Intel mission in between might cause it to glitch out, and you won't be able to make any progress.
Ensure that you leave the game only after Ghost appears at the top right corner of your screen. This indicates that the Intel has been registered. Sometimes it may take a couple of seconds.
According to the first picture, the Intel is a gold coin resting on a tree stump, overlooking the airport's ATC tower. The tree stump is just above the northern entrance of the tunnel going into the mountain.
Once you collect the Intel, you will get a note that reads "Price going after weapon - says z isn't done with armistice. Keep hunting. Intel pinged 3-1. NE road by news station. He left us this. 27495810. See what you can find."
The note from the first Intel suggests going to the road which is north-east of the TV station. There is a small locked shack located on the road with a keypad on it. This is the same shack that was opened first during the Black Ops Cold War reveal easter egg.
Go to the shack and enter the access code given in the first Intel note - 27495810. When you get inside the shack, you will see a stack of papers sitting on a desk with a lit lamp. This stack of paper is your second Intel.
After collecting this Intel, you get a document piece that shows the "Status of the operational asset - Perseus." It also has a handwritten note that reads, "Leak Intel - COBET. Verdansk Bank."
According to the second Intel, you need to go to the Bank in Downtown District. Head inside the Bank and go to the office to your immediate right. This same office contains the phone number with morse code 1 for Bunker 11 easter egg.
The computer in this office is your third Intel. Approach the computer and you will be prompted to collect the Intel.
After collecting the third Intel, you get a document that shows several transactions in which multiple armistice operators were paid. The operators involved are the ones that you are already familiar with. The operators include Yegor, Wyatt, Zane, and Azur.
On top of the note, it also says, "Send to City Hall."
The fourth Intel is found at the City Hall just next to the Bank in Downtown District. The Intel is not inside the City Hall but rather outside, where a sort of arch is. You will find a little radio station set up under a metallic shelter next to the City Hall's back door.
There is a pile of papers on the ground next to one of the wooden tables. Once you approach the tables, you will be prompted to 'Collect Intel.'
Upon collecting the Intel, you will get an Intel report showing Wyatt's face with a brief on how the team was ambushed at the Train Station. This ambush resulted in multiple vehicles getting destroyed and forced the team to retreat.
As per the brief, the next Intel is found at the Train Station. Head over to the Train Station and you will find a jeep flipped over and burning next to the station, just east of the subway station entrance. The jeep is crashed next to the tents.
Approach the vehicle to collect the Intel. Upon collecting the Intel, you will get a part of a torn picture that shows a bird's eye view of a specific location with another code - 97264138.
The picture is an overhead, outside view of Bunker 01, that is located to the extreme west of Verdansk at the B7 map coordinate. Head over to the Bunker and put in the access code 97264138 to open up the Bunker door.
Head inside the Bunker, and once you're in the main lobby area, you will see two TVs to your right with a small white circle on them, showing the prompt to collect the Intel. You must collect the Intel from both these TVs to successfully register the sixth Intel.
Once you see Ghost appear at the top right corner of the screen, you can exit the game and see the final and seventh Intel from the Intel menu screen.
The final Intel is a screen showing all the Bunkers and their status. All the Bunkers are shown as Online.
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.
