Killzone 2 Helghast Intel and Symbols Locations Guide

Killzone 2 on PS3 is sure to eat up your hours with its dynamic multiplayer modes. Yet within the single-player campaign there are collectibles to go after when you need a break from hunting and being hunted by your friends.

In total there are 52 collectible items in Killzone 2; 20 Helghast “Intel” cases and 32 Helghast Symbols or Emblems. The Intel is collected by simply walking over it. The Symbols are collected by shooting them into bits.

Many of the Helghast Symbols and Intel stick out like sore thumbs, especially since they “shimmer” when you move your aiming reticule near them. If you don’t know where to look or don’t take the time to look, you may find yourself completing missions with only 1 of several collectibles located.

Collecting all the Intel won’t just earn you a Trophy. You can use the codes within the Intel to unlock exclusive content at

This cheat guide tells you where to find each piece of Intel and Helghast Symbol in the game. The locations are broken down by the mission they appear in. Good luck!

Intel #1: The lone collectible in this shorter mission sits along a wall at the base of a column near the XO hold. It’s near a stairwell heading down.

Mission 9: Visari Palace

Intel #1: You’ll be tempted to rush up a flight of stairs to a cluster of enemy towers. Instead, head down and find the Intel at the bottom near a chain link fence.

Intel #2: There’s a small room off the Inner Courtyard with a table that has ammo on it. Next to the ammo is the Intel.

Helghast Symbol #1: The large enemy towers have support beams underneath their tops. Find a symbol towards the upper end of one of these beams just beyond the highway.
