Throughout Halo 5: Guardians, you'll find little pieces of Intel in the form of Data Pads, Computer Terminals and Radios. These provide various pieces of backstory regarding the Halo universe, including character details and other events. If you're playing as Locke, you'll be able to locate most of these using the Artemis system. If you need help finding them, though, we have all of the Intel locations in Halo 5.

Mission 1: Osiris Intel Locations 

1. Covenant Data Pad: You'll find this at the start of the mission. Take a few stops and then hang a right. You'll see a dead Grunt next to a weapon rack. Move closer to the corpse and you'll find the Data Pad beneath its hand. 

2. Covenant Data Pad: For this Data Pad, make your way into the ice cave. Once there, you'll see a wall you can use your Spartan Charge to get through. After bursting through it, you'll come through to the other side. Keep moving forward, then hang a left, where you'll find Jul 'Mdama's Log near the edge of a cliff. Don't fall off!

3. Covenant Data Pad: Before you enter the Forerunner Security Station, check out the rocky ledges off to the right of the entryway. Head over to a lower ledge and you'll be able to reach the highest platform, where a Data Pad containing the Covenant Combat Orders can be found on the top one.

4. Covenant Data Pad: Move along the icy path and you'll see another cave where you'll spot the Kraken. As you see it, check for a small opening off to your right hand side, which will give you a wider view of the area. Here, you'll find another Data Pad containing Halsey's Research Notes next to a tiny ledge. 

5. UNSC Data Pad: As you get close to the end of the mission, you'll find a Forerunner building where Dr. Halsey is camping out.
