Crysis 3 The Root of All Evil CELL Intel #8 Location

Crysis 3 The Root of All Evil CELL Intel Locations

The third mission, Crysis 3 The Root of All Evil, starts after Prophet and Psycho arrive at the headquarters to meet with Claire and Rasch at the end of Welcome to the Jungle.

CELL controls the power, so Prophet’s mission is to sabotage a dam inside the city.

However, the main energy source is inside a facility called System X, and it has to be shut down in order to have a chance against CELL.

There are eight Crysis 3 CELL Intel collectables that can be found in The Root of All Evil mission, and the following collectibles’ guide features hints and tips about their exact locations.

The guide must be used in the same order as below if players want to collect them in a single playthrough.

CELL Intel Guide

Hidden CELL Intel collectibles: 8

Datapads: 4

Propaganda Posters: 1

Blackboxes: 3

CELL Intel #1 (Datapad)

The first Crysis 3 The Root of All Evil CELL Intel can be acquired after you reach the top of the dam.

Here you must shut down two Hydro-Electric generators. These generators are in two separate buildings connected to the dam.

While standing in the middle of the dam, facing the primary objectives, you have to go to the building on your left.

If you access the path that leads to the generator room using the two entrances that can be hacked, you should find the Datapad collectible at the entrance, next to some ammo and weapon caches.

CELL Intel #2 (Propaganda Poster)

After you destroy the dam, as soon as you are in control, you proceed towards the secondary objective, as soon as it becomes available.

You need to keep an eye on the building on your left, because you can find the Propaganda Poster with the second Crysis 3 Mission 3 CELL Intel (at approximately 200m distance from the secondary objective).

CELL Intel #3 (Blackbox)

From the previous CELL Intel, you jump in the water and then you head down the stream.

After 50-70m (you can use the secondary objective as a reference since it is right in the center of the HUD) the path widens a bit. On your left side you should now see two drowned soldiers.

One of them has the third Crysis 3 Mission 3 CELL Intel.

CELL Intel #4 (Blackbox)

After you are contacted by the HQ, you should arrive at the triangular structure that you can see on the map (not the CELL System-X Harvesting Facility).

At this point you need to get in the tunnel that’s on the right side. Just below the middle of the triangular structure you can find a dead soldier that has the fourth Crysis 3 Intel.

CELL Intel #5 (Blackbox)

When you approach the CELL System-X Harvesting Facility, there are multiple ways to get inside.

If you completed the secondary objective, you can use the codes to open the main gate.

Instead of doing that, you should go on the left side to use the pipe entrance, because inside the pipe you can find the fifth Crysis 3 The Root of All Evil Intel in a soldier’s Blackbox.

CELL Intel #6 (Datapad)

After you use the elevator to get inside the facility, you need to take the catwalk on your left in order to find the sixth Crysis 3 The Root of All Evil CELL Intel.

CELL Intel #7 (Datapad)

The seventh Crysis 3 Mission 3 CELL Intel is nearby the CELL Intel you picked up earlier, you just have to walk on the same catwalk to find some computers.

CELL Intel #8 (Datapad)

The eighth Crysis 3 Intel can be collected after you restore the pneumatic pressure and you use the elevator to reach the top of the facility.

As soon as you exit the elevator, you turn left to see the Datapad collectible on a computer terminal.

Next, you shut down the Nexus system only to reveal the true energy source that kept the harvesting facility running. This is the point where Safeties Off begins.
