If you’re one of those players who likes to complete all the achievements in the game, then you’ll definitely want to find all 39 intel locations in Aliens Fireteam Elite. If you are playing the game on PlayStation, you will get the CMISRS Asset Trophy for finding all the intel, or the CMISRS Asset achievement if you’re an Xbox player.
When you find the locations of the intel, you will need to talk to an NPC, who will explain their subject. After that, you can read the intel in the Inventory menu whenever you want. Note that finding the intel locations is not mandatory to finish the missions and that it will take time to find them all.
