High Maintenance, Easter Egg in Die Rise: "Call of Duty, Black Ops 2, Zombies"

Outside of my day job as a human resource professional, I am an avid gamer with a great passion for "Call of Duty."

The High Maintenance Achievement

The High Maintenance Achievement

There are two versions of the High Maintenance Easter Egg in Die Rise. Each version can be broken down into multiple steps. There are six steps on the Richtofen side and only five steps on the Maxis side. However, the third step on the Maxis side includes various tasks. Many of the steps are the same for both versions.

This guide briefly describes each step of the Easter Egg. It is designed as an overview of High Maintenance. However, for those that would like additional information, there are links provided that give detailed information on each of the steps, including the location of objects and strategies for completing it.

The Steps For High Maintenance (Maxis Side):

  1. Link The Elevators
  2. Activate The Floor Symbols
  3. Obtain and Activate The Dragon Orbs
  4. Goto Step Five
  5. Decipher The Mahjong Tiles
  6. Punch The Tower

The Steps For High Maintenance (Richtofen Side):

  1. Link The Elevators
  2. Activate The Floor Symbols
  3. The Dragon Orbs
  4. Zombie Seals
  5. Decipher The Mahjong Tiles
  6. Punch The Tower

Before You Get Started

This Easter Egg became much easier with the addition of the Bank in Die Rise. Benefit from this addition by taking points from your account and using them to complete this task on low rounds. If you do not have points in the bank then you might consider building your bank before attempting this Easter Egg.

There are multiple items that you will need to complete this Easter Egg. The items are listed below, along with the step that they will be needed:

  • Build The NavCard Table: Step 1
  • The Trampo Steam: Step 3 (Maxis Side) and Step 4 (Richtofen Side)
  • The SVU: Step 3
  • The Upgraded Ballistic Knives (Maxis Side Only): Step 3
  • The Siliquifier (Richtofen Side Only): Step 3
  • The Galvaknuckles: Step 6
An Elevator with a Seal.

An Elevator with a Seal.

Step 1: Link the Elevators

This first step is the same in both versions of the Easter Egg. In order to complete step 1, you must link four elevators. The elevators have gold symbols or seals on top of them. To link these a player must stand on top of each elevator at the same time.

This task can be difficult as players will need to exit their elevator before it crushes them at the top. Put your best player on the elevator that only has one stop. If you continue to have difficulties, consider using the key.

Step 2: Activate the Floor Seals

This step is also the same in both versions of High Maintenance.

There are four seals that look similar to the seals that were on the Elevator. Unlike the elevators, these seals do not have to be stood on at the same time. Instead, the must be activated in the correct order. To activate a seal any player just needs to walk over it. If the order is correct the seal will light up, but if incorrect all seals will reset.

This is found by trial and error. The order changes from one game to the next, but not within one game. So once you found the first seal, it will remain the first seal, even if they were reset.

Step 3: Obtain and Activate The Dragon Orbs

Step three is where the two versions of the Easter Egg part ways. This is the longest step for the Maxis side of the Easter Egg, but after completing this step it skips to Step 5.

The Maxis Side: Obtain and Activate The Dragon Orbs

This is the longest step in the Maxis High Maintenance Easter Egg. There are many tasks to complete in order to accomplish this step. First I will give a summary of the tasks and then I will give a description of each task.

Task For Obtaining and Activating The Dragon Orbs:

  1. Move the Dragon Orbs.
  2. Grab The Dragon Orbs.
  3. Charge The Dragon Orbs.
  4. Place The Dragon Orbs on Trampo Steams.

1. Move the Dragon Orbs.

The Dragon Orbs are in the mouths of the two green dragons on the Roof. In order to move the orbs, you will need to shoot them with the SVU. The orbs will then relocated to the original spawn room.

2. Grab the Dragon Orbs.

Go to the original spawn room and find the Dragon Orbs under the claws of the Dragon Statues. Two players must each grab one of these orbs. The players that grab the orbs will also need to be the ones to charge them in the Buddha Room.

3. Charge the Dragon Orbs.

The two players that are holding the orbs should each stand in front of one of the golden statues in the Buddha Room. They must kill zombies while standing here in order to charge the orbs. Maxis will talk once this step is complete.

One of the two players should then turn around and shoot the golden statue. Maxis will talk again.

4. Place The Dragon Orbs on the Trampo Steam.

Place a Trampo Steam on each of the four Dragon Seals. Make sure the Trampo Steams are facing the tower. Then place the two Dragon Orbs on two of the Trampo Steams. This will cause the Trampo Steams to 'shoot' the orbs into the air. Maxis will talk when this is completed.

Richtofen Side: The Dragon Orbs

Tasks for the Dragon Orbs:

  1. Move the Dragon Orbs
  2. Make The Orbs Slippery

1. Move the Dragon Orbs.

The Dragon Orbs are in the mouths of the two green dragons on the Roof. In order to move the orbs, you will need to shoot them with the SVU. The orbs will then relocated to the original spawn room.

2. Make the Orbs Slippery.

Go to the original spawn room and find the Dragon Orbs under the claws of the Dragon Statues. Shoot the orbs with the Siliquifier until they start spinning. Once they are both spinning you can move on to the next step.


Step 4: The Zombie Seals

Maxis Side

Go To Step 5.

Richtofen Side

There are four Zombie Seals that will be used in this step. Three are on the Roof and one is in the Spawn Building. Each player must place their Trampo Steam on one of these seals, so that the Trampo Steam is facing the Tower. Then they must allow the Trampo Steam to fling zombies towards Tower.

Step 5: Decipher The Mahjong Tiles

This step is the same in both versions of the Easter Egg.

There are a total of 8 Mahjong Tiles in 11 possible locations. Find the Mahjong tiles and match the directional tiles with the numbered tiles. This will give you the order that the tower must be hit.

The corners of the Tower will glow red.

The corners of the Tower will glow red.

Step 5: Punch the Tower

In this step, the only difference between the two versions is the color of the Tower. The corners will be red for the Maxis side and blue for the Richtofen side.

A player with Galvaknuckles must punch the corners of the tower in accordance with the order given by the Mahjong Tiles in the previous step. If the corners are hit in the wrong order, you will need to end the round and try again on the next round.

If the tower is punched correctly, you should see fireworks and the Achievement for High Maintenance pop up on your screen. The Achievement will not appear if you have completed this on either the Maxis or Richtofen side in the past.
