  • Hidden Thunder Gun in "Numbers" mission

    At the beginning of Mission 7: Numbers, after the Nova 6 Gas is released, go to the back of the room, and enter the office. Find the tape recorder, and hold [Action] to pick it up. If done correctly, the screen will shake. Continue through the level until you get to the part where you jump off the roof into the building and onto the mattress. Once Clarke is inside, he will move a fridge leading to the weapon stash. You must watch him move the fridge or you will not get the Thunder Gun. Once you get inside the stash, go to the left. You should see another tape recorder. Walk up to it, and hold [Action] to pick it up. If done correctly, the screen will shake and the Thunder Gun will appear from the wall. You can trade the weapon you are holding for it, and it will be equipped with twelve shots. After you get the Thunder Gun, the rest of the level should be very easy.

    In Mission 7: Numbers, after interrogating Clarke, several enemy soldiers will appear at the end of the long hallway. If you shoot all six Nova 6 canisters (two in the back, four on the sides), you can retrieve a cassette tape in the office behind where you started. Note: It is recommended that you toss a flashbang to blind the enemies so you can shoot the canisters more easily. Once you pick up the tape, continue progressing through the mission until the part where Weaver and Clarke both jump off the roof and onto a mattress. After they jump down, Clarke will ask Weaver to help him move a fridge out of the way to his first weapon stash. Once they do, go inside, and look to the left. There should be a place to put the cassette. Note: When picking up and placing the cassette tape, the game will not prompt you to do anything -- you must use this information to know when to do these things. Once you insert the cassette tape, the screen will shake, and the Thunder Gun will appear out of the wall. It has twelve bullets, and it is reloaded at checkpoints.

  • Intel locations

    Search the indicated locations to find all 42 Intel laptops:

    Mission 1: Operation 40

      1. It is on a crate inside a building after going up a hill and passing a weapon depot. It is straight ahead as you enter the building with Woods and Bowman leading the way.

      2. It is on the dresser inside of a bedroom with a bed and TV in the next area you enter after you have killed the fake Castro.

      3. It is on top of a ladder inside of the first hangar you enter just after you rappel down from the mountain to the airfield.

    Mission 2: Vorkuta

      4. It is on top of a cabinet on the second floor of the first building you enter with Reznov just after the prisoners have taken out the tower after moving along the train yard behind cover.

      5. It is on a table inside the armory with a few radios. The armory is just after Sergei dies from holding the security door open for you and the other prisoners to get through.

      6. It is on the bottom shelf of a rack near the back of the building you start in after the cutscene from being gassed. There will be a pallet jack and lantern in front of it. You must grab this Intel before getting on the bike.

    Mission 3: U.S.D.D.

      None

    Mission 4: Executive Order

      7. It is on the third floor of the communications building on top of the right table that is underneath the four TV's and golden emblem. You must grab this Intel before going up the ladder to the top of the communications building.

      8. It is inside the control room for the rocket. It is in the far left corner after you blow a hole in the wall on top of the computer in the corner.

      9. It is inside another control room underground on top of a radar computer below the window. This is down the hall to the right after the offices.

    Mission 5: S.O.G.

      10. It is on top of a bunch of ammo crates in the back area you are defending from being rushed by the enemy and when you need to destroy the three T55 tanks. You must grab this Intel before following Woods into the hole in the ground.

      11. It is in the bunker at the bottom left corner of the hill. It is sitting inside the right window.

      12. It is in the larger bunker you enter after saving Woods. It is on a shelf after you pass through the collapsed support beams on fire in the right corner of the same room. You must grab this Intel before following Woods and entering the vehicle.

    Mission 6: The Defector

      13. It is on a table in the security room after you breached the room to find Reznov in it. This is also the same room with a projector and where there is a short cutscene.

      15. It is inside of a building on a table in the corner at the end of the mission when you have to defend the landing zone. Make sure to grab this Intel before enemies start coming. It will also be right after you have to place the C4 on the above wall and then the tank on the street explodes. It is the building at the back far right corner from when you come out of the building you used the C4 in.

    Mission 7: Numbers

      16. It is at the beginning of the level after you have interrogated Clarke. It is on a desk in the back right corner behind you. You must grab this Intel quickly so the Nova 6 gas does not kill you.

      17. It is lying on the ground in front of a shack with garbage all around on the ground. This is just after you slide down the metal roofing, and the game goes into slow-motion so you can kill the enemies that appear.

      18. It is lying on the metal roofing with garbage as you continue to descend after Clarke gets shot in the head while you are trying to save him. This is just before the end of the level where you slide down plywood.

    Mission 8: Project Nova

      19. It is on a table with a lantern and files in the two-story building you come across approximately halfway through the mission. There are two snowplows outside the entrance.

      20. It is on a table next to a cabinet in the hangar with a rocket in it. The table is in a room in the back right corner. You will need to pass through this hangar to continue the mission.

      21. It is on a pallet that is almost completely covered in snow at the end of the ship. It is right before the stairs to the right. You must grab this Intel before you use the rope to get off the ship and before time runs out.

    Mission 9: Victor Charlie

      22. It is lying against the wall near the west corner of the hut. It is right before you knife someone in the back and just after knifing someone in their sleep after climbing through a window with Woods.

      23. It is lying on the ground inside the hut at the end of the village. It is straight ahead from where you enter the village. The Intel is in the east corner of the hut. The village is just after the river area you swim through and plant explosives.

      24. It is in the left tunnel after Reznov helps you move a barrier blocking the path to the next tunnel. When you lead the way, instead of going straight, go left. It is lying on the ground against a rock on the right-hand side of this tunnel.

    Mission 10: Crash Site

      25. It is on a crate next to some barrels at the beginning of the mission. It is just before you get on the boat and after the helicopter.

      26. It is right after you get off the boat. It is lying on the right side of the dirt path in front of you next to a rock as you follow your squad towards the next objective.

      27. It is on a rock just below the crashed plane. When you start to descend from the wing, it is right below you before you enter the plane.

    Mission 11: WMD

      28. It is where you breach the barracks with your squad. It is the second time that you leave Blackbird. It is down the steps to the left on the desk as you enter the barracks.

      29. It is on a bench inside of the utility room located in the communications tower. It is on the second level, which is the level you enter the door from at the far left corner and right before you head down the stairs.

      30. It is on a table with explosives in front of the office that is inside of the large warehouse with explosives everywhere else. You can grab this Intel before or after entering the office. However, it is easier to get it before entering since there is not any resistance.

    Mission 12: Payback

      31. It is on a shelf inside the large ammunition room you enter after going through the left or right tunnel when you escape. It is on the right side of the room. You must grab this Intel before continuing and exiting the underground area with Woods.

      32. It is on the table with a radio to the right of the tent when you exit the underground area. You must grab this Intel before getting in the helicopter with Woods.

      33. It is right after you have freed the POWs. It is on a crate in the area to the far left just before you reach the building where Kravchenko is inside on the second floor.

    Mission 13: Rebirth

      34. It is lying on the ground next to the crate to your left as you exit the shipping container that you were hiding in. Kill the enemy in front of you, grab the Intel, then move quickly so you do not get spotted from the helicopter in the area.

      35. It is on a cage with a monkey in it inside of the containment unit in the center of the room. Do not shoot the enemy inside; instead knife him. If you shoot him, the containment unit will close, making it impossible to grab the Intel located inside of it. However, if you make this mistake, simply die, and start from the last checkpoint to try again.

      36. It is shortly after you have put on the gas mask when the area gets gassed with Nova 6. You will first pass through one house, and then continue up the road to reach the next checkpoint. Before you go into the next house with the checkpoint, there is a house in front of it to the right that contains the Intel. It is sitting on the cabinet with a bunch of pots.

    Mission 14: Revelations

      37. It is on top of a vending machine in the first hallway to your left after you have broken out of the chair and stumble through the doors.

      38. It is inside the trash can to the right on the left side of the wall after you exit a room that triggers a long flashback cutscene. This is right after Intel #37.

      39. It is on the desk to the left inside of the first office room you come across after you have a flashback with JFK as you head down the long hallway with the rocket taking off in the background.

    Mission 15: Redemption

      40. It is just behind the first shipping container you come across. It is lying on the ground under the door. It is right before you need to use the Valkyrie Rockets to take out the two helicopters above you.

      41. It is in the second room you enter when you are inside the ship. It is under the table in front of you with a bunch of crates as you enter on the other side of it. This room is after the locker room.

      42. It is in the office room at the end of the mission before you fight Dragovich. It is under the left desk with the phone. This office room is right next to the control room which is flooded on the lower level -- the room you enter just after going up the stairs.

The first is located in the spawning room near a broken pillar, to the left of the top-most window behind the Quick Revive machine. The second is located past the mud pits and Perk machine, but before the bridge, in the grass to the left when facing the bridge from the Perk machine. The third is located underground in the room past the AK74u, just above the water near the railing, across from the Perk machine in that room. Press [Use] when near each of the meteorites. When all three have been activated, the song "Pareidolia" by Elena Siegman will play.

  • Power box location in Zombies mode ("Escalation" DLC)

    The power switch is located on the half-sunken ship to your right when you start. The boat that covers the entrance costs 500 points. When you go up the ship's side, continue straight until you see a stairway to your left leading upstairs. It costs 750 points to enter. Once inside, go to either the right or left of the cabin and go inside, where you will find a stairway leading up again. Go up and move around the room to find a door that costs 750 points. Open this door, and the power switch will be to your right when you walk in.

  • Defeating George the director in Zombies mode ("Escalation" DLC)

    It is recommended you do not fight George the director until you obtain the new Wonder Weapon and upgrade it through Pack-A-Punch, as you will not be able to kill him without it. Shooting him, blowing him up, and even knifing him will cause him to roar in fury, then charge at full sprint after you and your allies until everyone is dead. If this happens, you can lead him to any large body of water to calm him down. Additionally, the power must be active before you can damage him.

  • Springing platforms and ziplines in Zombies mode ("Escalation" DLC)

    If you want to use either the platforms or zipline, you must first activate the power. Then, you must unlock the area that the platform or zipline ends at or else it will not bring you anywhere. The zipline can be used if there is no notice saying "Closed set" (indicating that you must unlock it) or "Power must be on" (power needs to be turned on). Once the zipline is active, jump into it near the edge to use it. The springing platform can be used once the area (lighthouse base) is open, and the power is on. When you stand on it, you will hear a compression sound, and after a moment it will launch you away. Note: Zombies and George can also use the springing platforms and ziplines.

  • Freezing zombies ("Escalation" DLC)

    If you lead a group of zombies into the water and keep them in there long enough, it will cause them to freeze for a moment, allowing you to run away or kill them easier.

  • Zombie perks ("Escalation" DLC)

    The following Zombies mode perks are available in the "Escalation" DLC: Double Tap, Juggar-naught, Speed Cola, Stamin-Up, Dr. Phlopper, Quick Revive, and Deadshot. The Deadshot perk lets you snap-aim (holding down your ADS while an enemy is near) to the zombie's head instead of its torso.

  • Hear "Abracadavre" song by Elena Siegman in "Ascension" map ("First Strike" DLC)

    In the "Ascension" map in Zombies mode, there are three teddy bears holding a sickle. Press [Action] while standing next to each one, and you will hear a sound. Once you activate all three teddy bears, the "Abracadavre" song by Elena Siegman will play. The first teddy bear is located to the left of the Olympia shotgun in the starting room. The second one is behind the fence across from where the claymores are bought. The third one is near the lunar lander by the Speed Cola machine.

  • Easy points in "Five" map

    In the "Five" map in Zombies mode, destroy the glass doors at the start, and then rebuild them for easy points. Let the zombies destroy the barriers and come into the office, and then kill them to earn extra bonuses. Shoot the zombies three to four times in Rounds 1 and 2, and then knife them to get extra points.

  • Hiding spot in "Five" map

    In the "Five" map in Zombies mode, once you go downstairs, stand in front of the larger elevator. While in front of it, go left along the desks next to the teleporter. Stand behind the railing so you can see it long ways. Dolphin dive on top of it. This may require a few attempts. Once you are on top of the railing, stand up, and keep jumping up until you are onto of the teleporter. Zombies cannot touch you unless you get too close to the stairs. You can get a lot of points because the zombies will gather around, and when you shoot at the crowd, it is very hard to miss.

  • Hear "Don't Back Down" song by Eminem in "Five" map

    In the "Five" map in Zombies mode, find the three red rotary phones throughout the Pentagon that ring and flash. The first phone can be found when you first start, after opening a set of doors in the corner. The second phone is inside the conference room on the second floor where the Pack-A-Punch machine is located. The third phone is in one of the rooms after leaving the second elevator on the floor that the power is on. You can find the phones by following their ringing. Look at the phone, then hold [Action] until you hear a busy signal. After all phones are accessed, the song "Don't Back Down" by Eminem will play.

  • Hear "115" song by Elena Siegman in "Kino Der Toten" map

    In the "Kino Der Toten" map in Zombies mode, find the three meteors throughout the map. The first meteor is located on a pedestal in a corner behind the soda in the main lobby. The second meteor is on a pedestal in the dressing room near some mannequins. The third meteor is the room upstairs near the alleyway, on a dresser with black marquee letters. The meteors appear as red veined rocks. Hold [Action] on each meteor until your character says something or the veins in the rock glow red.
