Table of Contents
Mission 3: Spy Academy of Sniper Elites 5 contains 19 collectibles, in this walkthrough, we will show you how and where to collect all 19 of those 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 from the main menu -> campaign -> mission select and play Spy Academy 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 collectibles:
Personal Letters – 5
Work Benches – 3
Classified Documents – 5
Stone Eagles – 3
Hidden Items – 3
Let’s start with all the Personal Letters first and foremost:
Spy Academy Personal Letters
Personal Letter 1/5 – Parking Problems
In the western part of the map, where the white car with the Nazi flags is parked, opposite are a couple of benches and a bin. Personal Letter #1: Parking Problems is on top.
Personal Letter 2/5 – Fragile, Do Not Break
At the very beginning of the mission, before you reach the beach and bridge entering the main area, there’s a Nazi checkpoint. Search on top of the steel box for Personal Letter #2: Fragile, Do Not Break.
Personal Letter 3/5: Do Not Be Late
On the western side of the map, if you follow the road that wraps around a turret from the white car with Nazi flags on it, there’s a guard with a pointed hat. Scout him with your sniper or your binoculars and Karl will remark that he’s carrying some intel. Kill him and then loot his body for Personal Letter #3: Do Not Be Late.
Personal Letter 4/5: It’s Easy Money

Personal Letter 5/5: Just Attend One!
Looted from an officer. He is at the very top of the church that’s in the east of town. Go up the staircase in the bell tower of the church, if you didn’t cause an alarm there will be just two enemies which are a sniper and this officer holding the letter. Loot him or carry his body if he can’t be looted for Personal Letter #5: Just Attend One.
That’s all of the Personal Letters, let’s move on to the Workbenches now.
