A Blacklist Laptop is a laptop computer that contains useful information regarding both The Engineers and information relating to the Blacklist Attacks. Similar to Dead Drops, Blacklist Laptops appear as secondary opportunity objects that players can collect in every mission in Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
One noticeable fact is that, unlike the Dead Drop, the player has to remain undetected to interact with the laptop. If the player is detected by a hostile, the laptop will self-destruct and the player will lose the opportunity to gain extra points. Once the player upgrades the C-147B Paladin's Radar system, the position of Blacklist Laptops will appear on their mini map.
