This feature will tell you where to find every collectible item in the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 campaign, broken down per mission. Unlike previous games in the series, this one features a random assortment of collectibles, the majority of which were seemingly inspired by different characters, pieces of equipment and the plot in general. If you choose to play with friends and intend to pick up these items, tell them in advance. Teleporting to the player furthest ahead will prevent you from backtracking should you miss something.
