Modern Warfare 2 - Intel Item Guide

Wolverines! - 4 Intel Items


Wolverines! - Intel Item #1

The gas station is the first business you’ll encounter in this shopping area. Simply go inside and stand behind the checkout counter. The laptop is right in front of you.

Wolverines! - Intel Item #2

At some point, you’ll be ordered to clear the Burger Town of enemies. To the left of that fast food joint is a small fenced trash enclosure with a dumpster. The laptop is inside that dumpster.

Wolverines! - Intel Item #3

Find the Taco Bell lookalike. Head inside. The laptop is on a table near the front entrance.

Wolverines! - Intel Item #4

Find the bank. Head inside. The laptop is in one of the cubicles near the door.

The Hornet's Nest - 4 Intel Items


The Hornet's Nest - Intel Item #1

The mission starts, you climb a hill and engage in a huge firefight with men on roofs and men shooting from white trucks. Immediately afterwards, you'll walk past the red garage door below. Head inside, past the blue car and find the laptop on a green checkered kitchen table.

The Hornet's Nest - Intel Item #2

Next, you'll run downhill and enter a large, overgrown field with the Barateiro market. After clearing the enemies, move to the left - towards the basketball hoop - and keep an eye out for a wooden shack with a rubber tire on its roof. On two metal barrels underneath is the laptop.

The Hornet's Nest - Intel Item #3

Now you'll be running back uphill, past Pelayo's ice cream store. The laptop is inside and up three flights of stairs... you can get there more directly by entering the building higher up the hill, as indicated by the arrows in the screenshot below.

The Hornet's Nest - Intel Item #4

Right before climbing onto the roofs and running towards Nikolai’s helicopter, you’ll walk through this dilapidated soccer field. The laptop is in a broken window, behind the far goal post.

Exodus - 3 Intel Items


Exodus - Intel Item #1

At the Garden Villas Apartments, find the management office in front of the parking lot. The laptop is on a desk inside, underneath a presidential portrait.

Exodus - Intel Item #2

Halfway through the mission is a security gate, separating the middle class area of the neighborhood from the nicer, upper class area with the bigger houses. Inside the security office is the laptop.

Exodus - Intel Item #3

Cross the little covered bridge into the upper class half of the neighborhood. Heading down the street, the laptop will be in the second house on your right. Just go upstairs and grab it off the yellow couch in the hallway.

The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday - 3 Intel Items


The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday - Intel Item #1

After breaching your first door in this mission, you'll climb two flights of stairs and go through the room pictured below. Instead of exiting immediately through those double white doors, turn around and check the cluttered shelves behind you for a laptop.

The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday - Intel Item #2

You'll reach the location pictured below almost immediately after planting C4 on the dead Russian soldiers. Head through the small warehouse room and look for a laptop on the righthand wall shelves.

The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday - Intel Item #3

You might spot this laptop while hiding from the helicopter. It's behind a fence at that point, but once you've destroyed the helicopter and followed the mission path around the building, you can pop back into the warehouse and grab it from under the stairs.

    Not to be a dick, but please don't put up stories before the content is actually ready. If anyone needs to know the intel locations now sans embedded video, check out
  • GearsofRabies - November 11, 2009 4:43 a.m.

    I can wait, still playing the actual game.
  • TURbo - November 11, 2009 5:30 a.m.

    Those laptops are a lot nicer looking than the intel laptops in COD4.
  • Cwf2008 - November 11, 2009 7:36 a.m.

    The whole game is nicer looking than CoD4, especially the weapons

    i've completed the story and found 7. however, i'm on the ps3, so until friday i've only got this and spec ops to do! what is it with the server crash, anyway? is it a PSN overload, or just a glitch on IW's end? (PLEASE REPLY)

  • DigitalLover - November 12, 2009 1:05 p.m.

    Do I unlock anything like in the last game or is it just for an achievement?
  • gangjute8 - November 12, 2009 1:31 p.m.

    This is a really helpful guide. Although, I am experiencing an issue with MW2. Everytime I try to play Spec-ops or set up a party for multiplayer, I recieve or the other person receives a message, but when I/he/she presses on it, It says the session is Invalid.
  • strogg950 - November 12, 2009 7:14 p.m.

    what do these damn things do????
  • patri0t - November 12, 2009 9:45 p.m.

    yeah i wish they added cheats this time...sure would be fun stabbing Sheperd in the head in sepiatone whatevs...
  • loonyman978 - November 13, 2009 12:14 a.m.

    aww, quite annoyed the cheats aren't there. I never got tired of watching people burst into tyres.
  • nadrewod999 - November 13, 2009 12:43 a.m.

    Let's keep our fingers crossed that IW will add cheats in some future patch like they did with the PS3 for matchmaking. (to crazy voice in my head) What cheat do you want to earn for finding all the intel? (voice replies) I want a cheat that will make my enemies forever wish they hadn't crossed me. I WANT A TACTICAL NUKE CHEAT!

    Sweet! Nice one, looks like a fully comprhensive guide with the pics and videos. Bookmarked for once I've tackled Veteran. GamesRadar can be informative as well as providing the lulz! ;-)
