You can see a completed map of the Oligarch mission below. Weapons are marked with a gun icon, while armaments are marked with blue triangles.
To get the weapons and equipment from the southern edge of the map, however, you’re going to need an Ascender and Night Vision Goggles in order to navigate the dark and winding caves.
Oligarch Field Upgrade Locations
There are 5 Field Upgrades to find in the Oligarch mission.
- Heartbeat Sensor
- Snapshot Pulse
- Armor Box
- Anti-Armor Rounds
- Recon Drone
Each of their locations is marked on the map below.
Oligarch Ascender Location
The Ascender is located in a dark cave along the southern edge of the map. To reach it, swim south along the island’s coastline and you’ll eventually spot an opening in the cliff face. It’s too dark to fully navigate without Night Vision Goggles, but you should be able to grab the Ascender without them.
Oligarch Night Vision Goggles Location
You can find the Night Vision Goggles in the southernmost cabana along the island’s eastern beach. There’s a supply box nearby too, so make sure to grab that to fill out your weapon collection for this mission.
Oligarch Plate Carrier Upgrade Location
The Plate Carrier is found in the center of the map along an infiltration route leading from the water. Just swim up to the island and you’ll find it in a small canyon alongside some other basic gear.
That’s all there is to find in the Oligarch mission! At this point, you’re roughly halfway through Modern Warfare 3’s campaign but there are still plenty of open combat missions remaining. If you want to earn all of the game’s trophies/achievements, then you’ll need to thoroughly explore all of them.
