The Most Convoluted Easter Egg I’ve Ever Seen

The Most Convoluted Easter Egg I’ve Ever Seen

I’m sure there are more complex video game easter eggs out there, but this is the most complex one I’ve ever laid eyes on.

Beyond the joy of killing an endlessly reanimating army of zombies in Call of Duty: Black Ops latest zombie map, is a bit of a story and a single challenge.

When you start up the Ascension map, part of the Black Ops First Strike download pack, a voice calls for your help. But many of us are perhaps too busy slaying zombies to give it any mind. Not the guys at though.

In this nearly 14 minute video they walk you through the myriad of steps, convulsions and seeming in-game Hail Marys you need to make to pull off the Easter Egg. The pay off, beyond saying you did it, seems relatively lame.


  • This is awesome, and completely stupid at the same time. The pay off is nothing to get excited about. I like how finally they have added gameplay in a call of duty game, instead of walking down a corridor triggering cutscenes.
    Hey kids, this is what FPS used to be about, collecting keys, activating triggers, using items, running around the same map several times to get everything.
    Funny how the only way they were able to add “gameplay” was through an Easter egg. I guess doing it in the actual game would have been silly?
