Crash Site Plate Carrier Location

There are two Plate Carrier upgrades to find in the Crash Site mission. Since the map is so small, you can collect both of them within the first few seconds of starting the level.

You can find the first Plate Carrier in the northwest building with the flight recorder that you need to retrieve near the end of the mission. It’s the building with the loadout drop right outside. The armor upgrade is sitting on a table next to the armor plates in the living room.

The second is located in the southern building. Check the small northern room with the armor plates inside and you’ll find the Plate Carrier sitting on a table.

Crash Site Field Upgrade Locations

There are three Field Upgrades to collect in the Crash Site mission.

  • Heartbeat Sensor
  • Munitions Box
  • Armor Box

Each of them is located just outside of one of the three main buildings surrounding the crash site. You can see their exact locations marked on the map below.

With that, you’ve collected everything there is to find in the Crash Site mission of Modern Warfare 3. This is one of the shortest and smallest open combat missions in the campaign, but sneaking past the Konni troops to pick up all the gear is still a challenge if you don’t know where to look. Thankfully, there isn’t an Ascender or any other special gear to collect in this mission.
