The latest Easter Egg discovered in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 a new twist on the zombie mannequins players found on the Nuketown map previously.
One of the most interesting of the many Easter Eggs in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is the zombie mannequins of Nuketown. For those unaware, players can make the futuristic mannequins dotted around the map come to life by shooting off all their heads within the first two minutes of a match. Now a second zombie mannequins Easter Egg has been discovered in Black Ops 3, and it makes the shambling creatures even creepier.
This second Easter Egg is activated in much the same way as the first one, but instead of shooting the heads off the mannequins, players must shoot off their arms. By shooting both arms off every mannequin on the remade Nuketown map, the mannequins will come to life, but aren’t able to move whenever the player is looking at them.
Dubbed the “Freeze Frame” Easter Egg by players, it’s reminiscent of the mannequin scenes from the Condemned games or how the Boos work in Super Mario. In any case, for those that want to see the “Freeze Frame” Easter Egg in action, check out this video here:
It’s good to see Treyarch continue the tradition of Nuketown Easter Eggs, and this year’s batch has been especially creative. While little Easter Eggs like these don’t add significant value to the experience, they’re still fun to try to discover, especially for veteran players that went in expecting something completely different from Nuketown and its Easter Eggs.
All that being said, it’s still disappointing that many Black Ops 3 players won’t be able to enjoy either one of the Nuketown Easter Eggs right now. As some may recall, Nuketown was actually a pre-order bonus for the game, and while it will probably be released as a standalone map later on, there’s no release window yet.
While those that didn’t pre-order will have to wait a little longer to try out the Nuketown Easter Eggs, there’s still plenty of other secrets to discover in the main game, including Dead Ops Arcade 2 and a complex Easter Egg to complete in Shadows of Evil. Hopefully Nuketown becomes available to all soon enough, so all Black Ops 3 enthusiasts can enjoy it and its Easter Eggs.
