Discover how to easily unlock one of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3‘s most interesting Easter Eggs, the zombie mannequins event on the remade Nuketown map.
As is the case with most games in the series, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is packed with Easter Eggs. One of the more interesting ones has recently been discovered, and it allows players to contend with the horrors of zombified mannequins.
Unlocking the zombie mannequins event on the remade Nuketown map in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is simple enough. Players just have to shoot the heads off all the mannequins on the map within the first two minutes of the match. Doing so will cause a horde of mannequins that stumble after the player in a manner not unlike how the zombies move in their own dedicated game mode.
For those that are having difficulties finding all of the mannequins within the allotted two minutes, feel free to refer to this video for additional help:
The zombie mannequins event is definitely one of the more amusing Easter Eggs that has appeared in a Call of Duty game. Players that are familiar with Nuketown and Easter Eggs attached to the map in the past probably expected to be treated to a Rolling Stones song or something along those lines after removing all the mannequin heads instead of being swarmed by creepy mannequin zombies. This makes the zombie mannequins even more of a treat for veteran Call of Duty players that went into Nuketown with pre-conceived notions of its Easter Eggs.
The only disappointing aspect about the zombie mannequins event is that not all Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 players will have a chance to enjoy it right now. Unfortunately, the new Nuketown map was a Black Ops 3 pre-order bonus, and there’s no word yet on when the map will be available to download for those that didn’t pre-order the game. It’s possible that it will be available as soon as next month, as we saw with Nuketown 2025 back in the days of Black Ops 2, or perhaps it will come attached with the first expansion pack.
Another question regarding the Nuketown map is that when the new version of Nuketown does become available to those that didn’t pre-order, will it be timed-exclusive to PlayStation? We already know that PlayStation owners have first dibs on all four expansion packs planned for the game, but since Nuketown was available on day one to anyone that pre-ordered Black Ops 3 for PC, PS4, or Xbox One, it’s unclear if the timed-exclusivity rule applies to it as well.
In any case, little Easter Eggs like this can be a lot of fun for players to discover and mess around with, and it’s nice to see that Treyarch is still jam-packing their games full of them. It gives the new Nuketown map an added dose of personality, and it will be interesting to see if other maps in the game have similar Easter Eggs that players have yet to discover.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is currently available for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
