Scan Environment (Intel View) – Mafia III
When playing in a large, open world, it can sometimes be difficult to locate the finer details, such as where your enemies are standing, or where you can locate one of those collectible magazines. Thankfully, in Mafia III you happen to play as a war veteran who is trained enough to be able to quickly pick out any important details. All you have to do is scan your surroundings. This is done through a mechanic called Intel View that is triggered by pressing the touchpad on you DualShock 4 or View button on your Xbox One controller.
When triggered, the screen will become washed out and certain elements will be highlighted. Items and collectibles will be highlighted in gold, while enemies and threats are highlighted in red. This makes planning moves much easier.
Do note, however, that once you move the screen will return to its original color, removing all highlights. To activate the scan again, simply press the button once more. There’s no limit to how many times you can use it, so pop it whenever you need it.
