Mission 1: The Atlantic Wall of Sniper Elites 5 contains 19 collectibles, in this walkthrough, we will show you how and where to collect all 19 of the Arctic Wall Collectibles including hidden items, workbenches, stone eagles, personal letters, and classified documents.
If you have already gone through this mission and have missed some of these collectibles, no worries. Players can go back to the mission in the main menu -> campaign -> mission select and play The Atlantic Wall mission to go back and get those items.
If you’ve already picked some and left other collectibles, here’s how to check which ones you still need, press Options-Button > Service Record > Collectibles > Select Mission.
The best approach is to clear all enemies from the map first, grab what you find along the way, then collect your missing items after. Sometimes Collectibles bug out and don’t spawn, but restarting the mission fixes this.
In this mission you can expect to find the following Arctic Wall Collectibles:
Personal Letters – 6
Work Benches – 3
Classified Documents – 4
Stone Eagles – 3
Hidden Items – 3
Let’s start with all the Personal Letters first and foremost:
Arctic Wall Collectibles Personal Letters

Personal Letter 2/6 – Upcoming Delivery

On the north side of the map, where one of the optional objectives is to destroy an AA gun, in a building upstairs. From the barn climb up the ladder on the upper floor to get to the attic, then the collectible Personal Letter #3: Violets Are Wilting is on a desk, surrounded by radio equipment.
Personal Letter 4/6: Violets Don’t Wilt
On the western side of the map, just north of where you need to search for Steffen Beckendorf, there’s a safe in one of the upstairs rooms in the hotel. Either use a Satchel Charges or loot the code from an officer to open it, and Personal Letter #4: Violets Don’t Wilt is inside.
Personal Letter 5/6: Pests in the Garden
In the southwesternmost part of the map, beneath the resistance safehouse, follow the pier out into the sea. Beneath the gazebo is a table, with Personal Letter #5: Pests in the Garden on top with 2 rocket launchers next to it, if you want to use you could use the Panzerfaust to destroy that pesky gunship.
Personal Letter 6/6: Boches at the Door

In the building with the main objective “Find Marcel” on the ground floor. Personal Letter #6: Boches at the Door is on the sofa, beneath a painting.
That’s all of the Personal Letters for the arctic wall collectibles, let’s move on to the Workbenches now

Those are all the Workbenches for The Atlantic Wall Mission for Sniper Elite 5, now let’s move on to the Classified Documents.
Arctic Wall Collectibles All Classified Documents
Classified Document 1/4: Resistance Captured

Underneath the radar tower, next to the room where you need to use the crowbar to overload the generator, there’s a safe you can blow open using Satchel Charges. Classified Document #3: Lacking Air Support is inside the safe, alongside a bunch of supplies that can aid you on your mission. If you need Satchel Charges, you can find some in the trenches nearby.
Classified Document 4/4: Atlantic Wall Report

In the kitchen area is a safe which you’ll need to open with Satchel Charges. Classified Document #4: Atlantic Wall Report is inside. If you don’t have any Satchel Charges, then you can loot one of the soldiers outside for the safe key.
Now, that we’re done with the classified documents also, let’s move on to the next part of the article, which is the Stone Eagles.
Arctic Wall All Stone Eagles
Stone Eagle 1/3
If you stand outside the bunker underneath the Radio Tower from where you picked up Classified Document 3/4: Lacking Air Support, there’s a house off in the distance that you can’t actually access. On the top of the chimney is the Stone Eagle. Use your sniper to shoot it.
Stone Eagle 2/3
On the roof of the hotel where you found Personal Letter #4: Violets Don’t Wilt, towards the western side. You can shoot the Stone Eagle with a pistol if you’re able to get in close.
Stone Eagle 3/3
In the southeast part of the map, on the rooftop of the building that is marked as “Vantage Point” (depending on which difficulty you’re playing on) on the map. You can shoot it easily from the beach where you have the optional objective to destroy 3 bunkers or you can just as easily snipe it from the gazebo on the beach from where you picked up the Personal Letter 5/6: Pests in the Garden.
Let’s cover the final aspect of this walkthrough which are the 3 hidden items in The Arctic Wall Mission
