Throughout the campaign of Homefront, players will find Newspapers stating events that happened throughout the game's backstory. There are 61 collectibles that can be found and read at any time. Most of the stories are hidden and the player must have an effort in finding them, others stick out and are noticeable during a firefight. All of the collectibles are highlighted in a golden glow and are in the shape of a newspaper. After having collected all of the newspapers, players will receive an achievement/trophy called "Historian".
