If you have already completed the huge easter egg hidden in the latest Shangri-La zombie map as part of the Annihilation map pack for Call of Duty Black Ops, you’ll know that the main reward is all seven perks which you keep even if you die.
Well now, we have found out that this easter egg actually repeats, unlike previous easter egg games in other zombie maps. This means that if you have a good enough team, a possible scenario is to have 4 players with all seven perks that stay permanent even when you die.
Sounds amazing doesn’t it, but obviously it will take a while to complete so you’ll have to have a lot of patience and good communication if you want to achieve this goal.
The trick is, after you have completed the easter egg for the first time and received the Time Travel Will Tell achievement, you’ll notice that a new radio appears at the start of the map in the center. The radio tells you that the players have travelled back in time and that this includes the layout of the map. This means that you can now repeat the process so all four players can pick up the focusing stone and receive seven permanent perks. A video we’ve included below from NGTZombies explains this in better detail.
Treyarch seem to be getting better and better on delivering new and exciting ideas to keep zombie mode fresh and interesting. The idea that the easter egg repeats so everyone can enjoy the reward is another stroke of genius by the company and of course it also will help you to reach some really high levels in the game. We’re talking about going into the level 50s and 60s with all four players hooked up with 7 permanent perks.
Have any of you tried this already? We don’t have a gameplay video which shows evidence of all four players having 7 perks yet, but it looks pretty obvious that this is the ultimate reward here. We know that it will take some time to complete, so perhaps many of you are in the process of doing it now.
Rumors are suggesting that Treyarch already has plans for another zombie map based in Area 51. Will this story tie in with the events of Der Riese we wonder? Perhaps we’ll see a brand new wonder weapon in the new map as well, and no doubt a brand new easter egg for players to enjoy. That map is meant to be due out in September, so you better finish up with the Shangri-La secrets first.
Let us know if you have seen evidence of all four players having seven permanent perks yet.
