If you purchased the season pass for Black Ops 3 then you’ll have access to the zombies map, The Giant, which in the original Black Ops was known as Der Riese. The following is a written guide that covers the three main Easter Eggs, so far, and follows the steps in order from the video posted on our YouTube channel. (Link included below).
Musical Easter Egg
If you’re familiar with the series and the original map, Der Riese, then you’ll be familiar with the location of the three glass containers needed to activate the song, as they are in the exact same positions. From the spawn area, you’ll want to face the large clock above the fence with the pack a punch machine directly behind you. The first two containers are in the area to the left by the GobbleGum machine and the Mystery Box spawn area. You’ll have to open two doors to get here. Just before the stairs you’ll notice a glass container that contains a spinal cord in it. Hold the activation button on the controller and you’ll hear a faint sound knowing you’ve done it correctly.
The next container is directly across from the first on the top level of a shelf. You will have to jump to activate this container. You’ll again hear the activation sound letting you know you’ve activated it.
The third container is in the area to the right of the spawn by the teleporter. From the spawn area, you’ll have to purchase four doors to enter this area. The container is on a desk in the far back, next to the grenade wall buy. Once activated, you will again hear a sound and the music will begin if you’ve done all three correctly. These can be done in any order.
Secret Perk Machine
To unlock the secret perk machine, you’ll need monkeys from the mystery box and, also, have all three teleporters linked to the mainframe. You’ll need to throw a monkey in each of the three teleporters and then activate it, transporting the monkey and yourself to the main area. When you reach the main area you’ll notice a small console on the railing to the right of you with three red lights on it. If you did the first step correctly, one of the lights should now be green. You’ll then need to repeat this process with the other two teleporters.
Once you’ve done this with all three teleporters, the console will begin making a beeping sound letting you know it can be activated. Once activated, a red beam from the head of the robot hanging outside the map will hit a reflection point. It will melt a mound of snow just to the left of the spawn area, revealing the secret perk machine. The perk machine that spawns is random, and you will still be limited to holding four perks.
In order to do this, you will need a pack a punch weapon. This is the special ability weapon of the Serph in the Black Ops 3 multiplayer. The first location is to the left of the spawn. You’ll need to look through the fence to see a small control panel attached to a pole. It’s a good distance so you’ll want to use a weapon with some range. Shoot it with a pack a punch weapon and you’ll see green lights appear and hear Maxis begin to speak. The next three steps can be done in any order.
In the area directly below the teleporter to the left of the spawn, there is a small open area. Crouch and look in with your pack a punch weapon and you’ll see a monkey in the corner. Shoot it and it will disappear and you will again hear the voice of Maxis.
Right above the area where you turn on the power is another location. On the top scaffolding area of the building, right next to the switch for the power, you will see a small teddy bear. Shoot it with your weapon and Maxis’ voice will let you know you’ve done it correctly.
The final location is in the vats, in front of the teleporter, to the right of the spawn area. This teddy bear is always in the same location just like the others. Upon walking into the room, the teddy bear is in the vat to the left and you’ll need to jump to shoot it. Once done correctly you’ll hear a final message from Maxis saying, “The beacon is lit. I know where and when you are.”
Once all steps have been done correctly, the Annihilator Pistol will appear in the furnace to the right of the spawn area. This pistol is a special ability weapon and will not take up a weapon slot. Once it is used, it will need to recharge before you can use it again. You can not activate perk machines or wall buys when this pistol is equipped.
