Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Intel Locations Guide

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Intel Locations GuideAfter beating the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 campaign and trying out all the multiplayer modes, one of the next tasks players usually partake in is locating all 46 Intel cases that are scattered throughout each of the game’s acts.

To aid in this search, we’ve put together this Modern Warfare 3 Intel locations guide that will aid in locating each and everyone of them so you can snag the Xbox 360 Achievement or Playstation 3 Trophy that awaits for doing so. The guide is broken down by act, and then by mission, so it will be easy to figure out which Intel items are where.

In addition, thanks to the power of YouTube, I’ve included videos that will visually walk you directly up to each piece of Modern Warfare 3 intel so it can be collected. There’s a comprehensive video that walks through them all, and also secondary videos that show the intel locations by mission.

Without further adieu, here is our Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Intel locations guide that will help you find where each of the hidden intel cases is located.
