Black Ops: Cold War - Redlight, Greenlight Photo Intel locations for the IMINT challenge explained

Where to find all six optional locations.

Photo Intel is an optional challenge within the Redlight, Greenlight mission of Black Ops: Cold War.

As you're exploring the mysterious base with Woods, you have a camera to help you spot enemies. It can also be used for this optional objective, named IMINT, where there are six photos to locate.

Collecting any three of the six Photo Intel locations is also how you collect the mission's evidence, which belongs to the Operation Chaos evidence set.

To 'collect' each one, you must equip the Camera by pressing Right on the D-Pad, and have the map in view. It will glow red when it is correctly in your sights, with a notification appearing upon successfully taking the picture.

Though the mission is replayable, allowing you to find any missing Photo Intel you have missed, it's easiest to get them all in a single playthrough.

Near the start of the mission, when the optional objective first appears, you have to travel through a security guard hut to enter the compound. The map is on the wall inside.

When you enter the base, there's a moment where you're on a walkway above a long corridor with a few sentries.

After clearing them, on the ground floor, there's an open door on the left. The map is on the wall to the right.

Partway through the mission, there's a firefight in a fake American town. When you go down the main street, there is a bar on the right.

Go inside, up the stairs, and the map location is on the wall at the far side.

If you have collected these first three photos, then the Operation Chaos evidence will be yours. Otherwise, when you get three out of the six, it will unlock then.

About halfway through mission, you arrive at a command centre, with a terminal you must hack into by guessing a series of passwords.

Once you are done, the photo location will be on the right wall of the room which follows.

Continue playing until you and Woods are running down a corridor, avoiding gunfire coming through the left wall. When you drop down, with the enemies ahead, go into the small room on the right.

The map is on the wall.

Towards the end of the mission, you press a red button to open the corrugated door, taking you to a large hangar.

Hug the right wall from here, working your way round until you come to a room on the right.

Enter and take a picture of the map on the wall inside.

Note there will be one or two heavies nearby, so it might be easier to defeat them out before you pull out in the camera. This is all just before you enter the APC at the end of the mission. If you have entered that, you've missed this final Photo Intel.

Collect any three of the above and you'll unlock the Operation Chaos evidence. Collet all six and the optional IMINT challenge is yours.

Remember if you have missed any, you can select the mission again and find any you have missed - you don't necessarily have to collect all photo locations in a single run.
