Call of the Dead Easter Eggs: Golden Rod Location and Hidden Song

If you are currently addicted to the new Call of the Dead zombies map on Call of Duty: Black Ops, there’s a high probability that you are currently trying to figure out how to solve Treyarch’s hidden easter egg in the map which reveals that the old players from previous maps are trapped inside a locked door.

If you’ve played the map, you’ll know what we are talking about as you’ll need to solve a series of clues that the old players give you from inside the door. If you stand outside the door and hit it with your knife, you’ll hear each familiar voices from Dempsey, Takeo, Nikolai and Richtofen.

After listening to what they have said, you’ll first need to locate a fuse. This is located near the PhD Flopper perk either on a desk or in a locker. Once you have it, return to the locked door and insert the fuse next to the door. After this, the room will now receive power and you’ll have to perform the next step, which is finding four red orb generators hidden throughout the map and destroy them.

Once you’ve done this, you’ll have to find bottles of Vodka for Nikolai and these are located in random places and it’s a task that requires one of your teammates. This is because once you’ve located the vodka, one will have to break the ice, and the teammate will have to catch the bottle of vodka below without it smashing. You’ll know when you’ve done it right, and if you’ve smashed it – there are a few bottles scattered, so don’t worry if you break it the first time.

After this, you’ll then be asked to find a golden rod for Richtofen, which is proving to be the most difficult task for gamers. We can tell you that the golden rod Richtofen is referring to is hidden near the start of the map, behind a wall in the cave. You’ll then need to shoot this wall with the upgraded V-R11, although we’ve heard it also works with an upgraded Ray Gun.

Unfortunately, that’s all we have at the moment as the complete mystery hasn’t been solved yet after the Golden Rod stage. If you have found any further hints to this Easter Egg or received any rewards for it, leave us a message below.

As for the Hidden Song, simply activate three meteorites hidden throughout the map (just like previous maps), and you’ll then get to listen to the “Not Ready to Die” track by Avenged Sevenfold.

wow paradise I juat type it all up and it took 4 comments and u did it in 1 lol….ohh well I guess you didnt tell what order to do radios and fog horn which I said do fog horn before you do power house steering wheel and levers. but you said do it after and I think you might be right.

nathan
nathan

after that you go to the power room and turn the wheel you will see one handle is taped and looks brown…turn it to the 5 oclock position . then go to the levers to the right and the 1st one you put down 1. then go to the 3rd lever and put down 3 times. there will be a light that appears in the center of the lighthouse now what you do is shoot a zombie with the VR-11 or humanizing gun and the human zombie will run into the light and as soon as he starts to float… Read more »

after that you go to the "UFO" LOOKING THINGS OR "vents" in this exact order hold x they make a horn sound. ( I hear this order may change from game to game, from what i hear u can hear the sound of horns on the boat and you have to match the sounds you hear on the boat on the horns or vents coming out of the ground) but try this order unless u hear horns on a boat but… 1st vent is outside in front of the light housenext to the water at the base of the cliff… Read more »

Zombie Horder, you lie. You don't even have the achievement. I just checked your gamertag on xbox. Idiot. This doesn't work. You're supposed to do the dials set to 2-7-4-6, then the radios in a certain order, then the boat's steering wheel & levers, and lastly the foghorns in an order to get the "green light" to appear. Then shoot a crawler near the lighthouse with an upgraded VR11, and he'll go up in the green light, and kill him before he reaches the top with an upgraded Ray Gun or Scavenger Gun. The golden rod will slide down the… Read more »

Black Ops: Escalation is awesome so far! A few minutes ago I came across a blog that's giving out the Escalation DLC for free! I thought it was a scam until I saw the DLC code laying in my e-mail inbox. 😀

I'm not sure if there's any codes left, but if you want to give it a shot, here's the site:

Alright me and my friends were just trying to figure it out and we have a theory that no one else has that has nothing to do with the whole map. if you are at the begining and look to the left where you spawn there is a picture on the wall in the water it looks kinda like a gun close up but far back it looks just like a mummy or a king that is barried. maybe his staff is the golden rod but it looks alot like it comment if you see this or know anything about… Read more »

I'm playing on solo. I found the fuse, destroyed generators, and proceeded to turn the ships steering wheel to 5:00 and the first lever 1 click the the third, 3 clicks(the 3 levers next to the wheel at the top of the ship next to the power) the orbs then link to the light house…this is where im stuck. I've used the V-R11 to shoot a zombie and he runs to the bottom of the lighthouse where the light begins and is sucked to the top…did this with around 5 zombies so far. Anyways after looking, the light goes out… Read more »

i've tried all these rumors goin around and NOTHING WORKS but if u play solo, once u get the fuse, and destroy the generators, i messed around with the levers and wheel at the top of the ship and a green light appeared from the sea which went into the lighthouse :s i've been told then when u use the vr-11 and shoot at the point in the sea the GOLDEN ROD appears at the bottom of the light house. The lever combination is Left lever once Right lever two or three times and the wheel has 2 be at… Read more »

U guys are all idiots. R u all twelve? Shoot George… not the boss u fucking retard with the upgraded vr. About fifty shots does trick. This game is the worst. No upgraded knife or grenades to help down friends. If ur dumb enough to listen to eight dif ways to get gold rod ur an idiot. Like guy that says behind wall in cave. Is it to hard to say right or left side?

People are saying that you need to shoot the VR-11 in the cave, i have heard, and done it plenty of times, nothing happened. AND i believe that Zombie Horder is definitely bluffing about figuring it out.

Your golden rod step is not holding true with the ray gun. We also tried the human gun PAP nd couldn't find the infamous golden rod. We shot everything in "the cave" with both guns and nothing so far.
