I'm having a real problem here and have checked your list against my game. I have done every mission and got all Intel, File cards and Tags, yet when I access the Battlefiles screen on the main menu and go to Cobra files, I still have a card missing!. It's the one on the right end of the top row next to the Assault trooper card and before Baroness card. This is seriously battering my head and is all I need for all achievements. Can you please help?.
To the OP, there are a few cards missing from your list, why is that? For example there are two files cards on the bonus desert level, but you only mention the intel.
Whats the deal with this guide? It is missing tonnes of collectibles!!
Apologies if it is not complete. I wrote it as I went, and didn't replay it following my own guide. Any feedback letting me know what is missing and I will update it and give you credit ;)
Desert Jewel - Bonus Delta - Missing collectibles
Two collectibles at the very start of the level, right before the bridge. Specifically, to the left of the bridge is a bonus box, and it is near a path. Follow to the left, and you will find a Commando Door.
Unlock it to find:
1) Weather Dominator File Card (left side)
2) COBRA Mole Pod File Card (right side)
Jungle Fuel - Countdown - Incorrect Location.
"Sgt. Flash Location Intel" is not given outright, or in the middle of a pathway, etc. The location above is flat-out wrong, as is another site that tends to outright steal content from other sites.
This is NOT before the first checkpoint, after disabling the shields. This is a bit after that point .
Specifically, right by the area where you have to take down 3 generators to continue. The generators continue past a building, with the last generator in the corner area. Returning, you can pass around the building on the other side (right side), leading back to a doorway. I believe this required a soldier like Duke to open (why I missed the first time around), but for some reason, returning on Casual mode had the door wide open for me. The Intel was inside.
Tundra - Cryodome - Missing Achievements
Two found so far that aren't listed, and both are pretty close to the very start of the level.
"COBRA Final Lair" File Card
First area. By the tank is a small gate/arch you'll go through, with B.A.T. spawners on the wall nearby. More gates/arches are further down, but the very first gate hides this card. It's just barely past the gate on the right side, by the mountain/wall part. Make sure you jump out of the tank to try and find this one.
"Strato Viper" File Card
First area. Somewhat close to the Cobra Commander File Card, though I think it is before it. In the general area of where you have to blow up the five generators. Specifically, near the force field gate that disables after destroying the generators. Gate is to the left, and a building-like thing with two indestructible bulwarks is to the right. The File Card is hidden somewhat behind these two bulwarks.
This is the worst guide I have ever used. You have collectibles mixed up and listed in missions they do not appear in. I am not sure if there is a viewer where you can see what collectibles are in what level, but this is a complete waste of time.
I would have been better off collecting them and moving on then trying to find ones that I missed on the second run.
took me an hour searching the net to even find this. was about to rage quit and burn my house to the ground. hope this helps people. it appears to have the missing information Bahaumaut was mentioning in previous posts.
