Killzone: Mercenary – Complete Intel Guide
In addition to main missions in Killzone: Mercenary, the game also has special contracts, which are essentially a special mission mode. Each contract features six special collectibles known as Intel, three from questioning special characters and three from hacking terminals. Collecting them all will net you the silver Fully Briefed trophy. There are 54 pieces of Intel total, and finding them all can be tough. We've created a guide listing all the locations for each Intel in all 9 contracts, so you can find them all and achieve that platinum!
Contract 1 – Justice For All
Signal from the Fleet
Ivanov will tell you to interrogate the Helghast officer. Talking to him gives you the Intel.
After killing the first officer, go straight ahead and try to enter the locked room. Ivanov tells you there is another way to enter. Look for a broken window and jump through onto the ledge. There is a terminal on the ledge to hack.
Why We Fight
Getting this Intel is tricky. You must get the security officer to come out of the security office. To do this, you have to clear out the area and go to the side of the room that is damaged. There will be an area you can go into by crouching. Inside, climb a pipe. Once ascended, there will be a valve for you to turn. You will have to kill some enemies that approach. Once the valve has been completely turned, the vents to the security office will be open. Throw in a gas grenade and he will come stumbling out. Then, you can tranquilize him in order to interrogate him.
After you rappel down into the courtroom, go through the locked door to the left. Clear the room and hack the door. Behind the door is a security guard for you to interrogate.
