With Black Ops 2 zombies due out in just a few days, the leaks are continuing to pour out online, with many gamers already having access to the new zombies mode after picking up the game early. We have previously kept you up to date with a list of zombie guns and pack a punch upgrades, but now we have the first details on what you can expect to see with one of the various Black Ops 2 Zombie Easter Eggs that have been planted in the game by Treyarch.
Let’s get the good news out of the way first. We can tell you that Black Ops 2 zombies is going to have multiple Easter Eggs, depending on whether you are playing the game in basic Survival mode, or the brand new Tranzit mode which is the exciting new open world adventure featuring the zombie bus driver.
There are going to be two hidden Easter Egg songs to find in both Tranzit and Survival, so look away now if you don’t want to hear how to activate them. We’ve done our research and found out that players will need to find and activate teddy bears in each of the maps, in order to get the hidden song playing. Last time, it was small alien meteorites that had been planted in Black Ops 1, but now the teddy bears are back in collectible format.
In Tranzit at least, we can tell you that there are three teddy bears locations to find. The first one is easy enough, as it is located at the Bus Station area, lying on a bench ready for you to find. The next teddy bear is situated in the Farm area, upstairs from the fridge and lying on a blanket – again just press X to activate. Finally, the last teddy bear can be found in the Town area and beside the pool table, where the Stamin Up perk machine is located.
If you have done the three steps correctly, the song will play and it is none other than dubstep artist Skrillex – with the song ‘I’mma try it out’ featuring Alvin Risk. Whether you like Skrillex or not though is debatable, but it appears that this is yet another instance where developers feel that putting dubstep music into their games is automatically a win win situation.
Is dubstep a good choice though for the Black Ops 2 Zombies easter egg song? The good news though, if you don’t like dubstep generally, is that there is another secret Easter Egg song in Survival mode, which is more rock and metal based and in-tune with previous genres that we have heard in older zombies maps on Black Ops 1. Again, you’ll have to find Teddy Bears to activate again, but we’ll let you find the locations for this one this time.
Just to remind you, these are just details on the musical Black Ops 2 Easter Eggs for now. There is going to be a separate main Zombies Easter Egg to unlock the Tower of Babble achievement. So far, we don’t think anyone has cracked it, but feel free to send us an email if you have already managed to.
Back to the matter at hand though – are you a fan of Skrillex and should his music be one of the Easter Eggs or not?
