    CanadianWhizKidYeah, it'd be appreciated if you could just add the skulls into the same video, it's not necessary to have each one as an external video.

    I missed the last intel in Battle of Sunaion because of that. I got the 7th intel, then the video linked to the skull which I proceeded to grab, and in turn, progressed to a point of no return for the 8th intel because I thought the path would take me in the correct order! If anything, the Skull link should appear after collecting the 8th intel. Very misleading. Downvoted for the piss off.

    wrogYeah, my mistake (wrong start time for that annotation). Fixed.

    UbulaExcellent guide man. Dude above is butthurt, your guide is clearly for the intel, this is the intel achievement page. Skulls has its own achievement/guides. Perfect collectibles guide; recognizable visual cues, no unnecessary commentary. Thanks!

    I wanted to include all intel AND skulls into one easy-to-use video for those that are interested in that sort of thing. Rather than timestamp each individual item, I've included timestamps of each mission's starting point below. If enough folks express interest, I can copy and paste the written directions to each mission into this solution (roughly a paragraph or two for each mission, directing you on where they all are) from the Walkthrough, although it should be published today.
