Outside of my day job as a project manager for a construction company, I am an avid gamer with a great passion for "Call of Duty."
CoD threw us a humorous Easter Egg in Die Maschine. The Coffin Dance Easter Egg can be triggered in less than a minute if you know where to find all the orbs. There are five orbs and they are all in the Particle Accelerator area. These white orbs make a buzzing sound when you are close to them.
Shoot each Orb, they will disappear a second after being shot. Some are harder to find than others, but all are easy once you have done it a couple of times. They can be found and shot in any order. You don't need to keep the order I list them in.
Prerequisite: You must have the power on and the Pack-a-Punch built.
Location of the First Orb
The first orb is under the exterior front wall of the Power Room. There is a grate that is covering up some wiring. Approach the grate and duck under and you will be able to see it on the left-hand side behind the grate.
Location of the Second Orb
The second orb is close to the first. While facing the grate, it is on the right. Go up the stairs and look between the two sets of terminals. It will be partially hidden behind a chair that has been tipped over.
Location of the Third Orb
The third orb is near the entrance to the Weapons Lab. There is a hole in the wall next to the entrance. Look above that hole, just short of the ceiling. This orb is easier to see if you are not standing close to it.
Location of the Fourth Orb
I prefer to shoot the fourth orb through the grade in the walkway. Go up to the walkway that is at the top of the stairs past the Armor Station. Walk a couple of steps then turn around so you are facing toward the Armor station. Then look down to find it under the grate. It might take a couple of shots to hit it.
Location of the Fifth Orb
The fifth orb can be hidden very well. It is inside a window on the ground floor of the Particle Accelerator. Go down the stairs to the ground floor, then look behind the stairs. When looking towards the window, it is in the upper left-hand corner. If a zombie has not broken through, then boards will block your view. You only need to see a sliver of the orb to shoot between the boards.
Zombie Coffin Dance Rewards
The reward for this Easter Egg is more than just the fun of watching zombies dance. It also provides you with a box with several rewards. It has given me Juggernog for free every time, along with a random weapon and various materials. The materials can be used to build armor, upgrade weapons, or build items on the crafting table. However, you must act fast. The box will explode moments after being available.
Note: All active players will be pulled into the Particle Accelerator room as soon as this is triggered. This could cause them to be pulled away from completing a task. It also puts them near the box to race you for the rewards.
