Intelligence Folders might be one of the most underrated but lucrative ways to make money in Escape from Tarkov but where can you find them during raids? One YouTuber has pointed them out.
Though the objective might be to survive and make as much cash as possible, Escape from Tarkov has plenty of different playstyles that you can utilize. You can be ultra-aggressive and hunt for kills, just stick to looting and avoiding fights, or you could ruin someone’s day by exit camping.
There are plenty of high-value items to find if you purely want to be a looter but there are some, like Intelligence Folders, that go under the radar even though they can be worth a few hundred thousand rubles on the flea market.
YouTuber KARRY revealed a few spots where players can find Intelligence Folders on the Reserve raid map. Though they can also be found on Labs, KARRY noted that the admission price isn’t worth it compared to Reserve.
On Reserve, there are ten spawns for the Intelligence Folders, all spread out across the raid but can usually be found on tables or in crates. Picking one up will mean you use two inventory slots but, seeing as they’re worth around 170,000-180,000, they are worth it.
Though you can find two folders inside the Queen building, as well as a further folder in the Helicopter that sits across from it, the most built-up area for Intelligence is near Dome. As KARRY points out, there are three pretty much on top of each other there – with extras in the tunnels below.
Of course, if you manage to get your hands on the folders, they can be quickly sold on the Flea Market for the prices we’ve already noted – though they can also be used to level your Intelligence Centre.
Doing this will allow you to craft Intelligence Folders from other items but KARRY notes that it doesn’t make sense financially, so you’re better off finding them from the spawns.
