All 50 Intel Locations in MW2 Spec Ops

Finding every piece of Intel in MW2’s Co-Op mode (Spec Ops) is not going to be an easy task, as they’re relatively well hidden. Fortunately, we’re here to help guide you on your way by revealing each of their locations.

But first, you should definitely familiarize yourself with every Spec Ops mission in MW2 and how to beat them, as it will assist you greatly in discovering all of the Intel.

All MW2 Spec Ops Intel Fragment Locations in Co-Op

To find all of the Intel locations in MW2 Spec Ops missions you will need to search every map from top to bottom. You will find the following Intel Fragments in each mission:

  • 20 Intel Fragment locations in Low Profile
  • 20 Intel Fragment locations in Denied Area
  • 10 Intel Fragment locations in Defender Mt. Zaya

While some are easier to spot than others, you’ll need a keen eye and a good partner to help you find them all. Or better yet our very helpful guide.

Location 1
  • Go back to the original drop point and head towards the supply shop. There are two doors behind it, head into the one on the left
  • Turn directly right and head into the open-plan office floor with the bombed-out offices
  • Go forwards until you reach the office at the end and then turn left. Head towards the leftmost office 
  • On the shelves of the torn-apart filing cabinet on the right of that office is the Intel Fragment
  • Interact with it to collect it 
Location 2
  • Go back to the original drop point and head towards the supply shop. There are two doors behind it, head into the one on the left
  • Turn directly right and head into the open-plan office floor with the bombed-out offices
  • Next to the desk directly in front of you is an open cabinet. Inside the bottom drawer is the Intel Fragment
  • Interact with it to collect it

Intel Fragment 9

This Intel is located South East of Hardpoint A
  • Head to the building north of the original drop point (as indicated on the map)
  • Inside to the left, you’ll find a vending machine
  • You’ll need to spend $20,000 in order to access it. This shouldn’t be hard to achieve so long as you don’t purchase anything from the supply store
  • Once you’ve paid the money, wait for a few seconds and the Intel Fragment will be dispensed 
  • Interact with it to collect it

Intel Fragment 10

This Intel is located West of Hardpoint B

Getting this Intel Fragment is difficult and may require an exploit. The door to the building it is in is supposed to unlock in Wave 6, but occasionally doesn’t If it doesn’t, then rely on the exploit.

  • Head to the last building at the end of the street near Site C (see the above map for the location) 
  • When the door is unlocked, head inside
  • In the space to the left is a desk. On the desk is the final Intel Fragment
  • Interact with it to collect it

Use the following exploit if the door does not open during wave 6 (or if you want to try and get it before wave 6)

  • Buy the Juggernaut suit from the supply store for $8000 
  • Equip it by pressing right on the D-Pad (consoles) or by pressing 3 on PC
  • Go to the building marked on the location and sprint into the door
  • You will gain access to the building, however, it will teleport you out of there if you get too close to the desk with the Intel Fragment
  • Your best bet is to exit the Juggernaut suit and try to sprint and collect the Fragment at the same time
  • You can also alter your controller settings and set your Interact/Reload Behavior option to “Prioritize Reload” (this setting is found under Settings – Controller – Gameplay)
  • It is worth noting that when we tried this, our settings menu lagged considerably and it took a while to get back into the game. Other than that, no issues were encountered
