The main Easter Egg in Origins is called Little Lost Girl. You must free Samantha in order to complete the Easter Egg. After you free her you can perform an additional step in order to see the cut scene. However, that step will end the game. Only do the Bonus Step if you are ready to end the game.
Many of the more complicated steps have links to detailed guides on that specific task.
- Acquire The Keys
- Upgrade The Staves
- Acquire Thunder Fists
- Get the G-Strike Beacon
- Build The Maxis Drone
- Place The Staves
- Break The Seal
- Release the Panzer Soldats
- Get The Maxis Drone Back
- Upgrade your Thunder Fists
- Free Samantha
- Bonus Step
- The first 6 steps do not have to be completed in order, and many of them can be worked on simultaneously. Such as collecting the parts for the Maxis Drone while you are getting the staff fragments.
- Some of those steps will need to be done before others. For example, you will need to get the staves before you can upgrade them.
- I suggest completing the seventh step after the first six. This allows you to keep a staff equipped as long as possible.
- The key to completing this Easter Egg is getting through as much as possible as early as possible. You don't want to be trying to punch zombies past round 30 in an enclosed space. This is especially important if you are attempting to complete this in a solo game.
1. Acquire the Keys
The four staves are the keys. In order to complete this step you must build all four staves. They include the Staff of Fire, Staff of Ice, Staff of Wind, and Staff of Lightning. If you are unsure how to accomplish this then select one of the links above to see that guide.
This can be very time consuming, and will require opening almost every door in the map. Do not wait until you complete this to move on to the next step.
2. Upgrade The Staves
In order to complete this step, you will need to upgrade all four staves. In a multi-player game you will need to complete step 1 before you can begin this step. However, in a solo game you can upgrade a staff without having the others built.
You do not need this step to be completed until you reach Step 7. Complete other steps while you are working on this step.
The link in the first paragraph will bring you to the guide that explains the shared steps for upgrading the staves. If you are unsure on a specific staff the following guides discuss the steps specific to each staff: Upgrade the Staff of Ice, upgrade the Staff of Fire, upgrade the Staff of Wind, and upgrade the Staff of Lightning.
I will complete the steps for three of the staves and place them in the crazy room. Then I will equip the Staff of Fire and light the candles at the same time that I power the staves. Once this is finished I will complete the other steps for upgrading the Staff of Fire.
3. Acquire Thunder Fists
You receive Thunder Fists from the Rituals of The Ancients Chest by filling four chests on the map. The link above will bring you to a guide that explains exactly how to do this, and gives tips for completing this in a timely manner.
This step will take several rounds, and often is difficult to accomplish during the lower rounds due to low amount of zombies in play.
You can complete this step at the same time as Step 1, 2, and 5. However, you will need to have Thunder Fists in order to get the G-Strike Beacon in Step 4.
4. Get The G-Strike Beacon
You will need to have completed Step 3 before you can complete this step, since you will need to kill zombies with Thunder Fists.
Only one player will need to have the G-Strike Beacon.
You can get the G-Strike Beacon by cleaning the tablets found in the Tank Station. You clean them by first placing them in Holy Water in the Church, and then killing zombies near it with Thunder Fist. After they are clean you must bring them back without getting them dirty, and then kill more zombies near them with the Thunder Fist. The links above for Thunder Punch is a detailed guide for completing this step. The embedded video to the right will shot the path from the Church to the Tank Station, without getting the Tablet(s) dirty.
5. Build The Maxis Drone
In this step you will need to find the the parts and build the Maxis Drone. This step has no prerequisites, so you can do it as early as you want, but you will need it to Complete Step 7.
6. Place The Staves
You can complete this step as soon as you finished Step 1 and 2. However, I like to keep a staff while I finish the previous five steps.
Once all four staves have been upgraded a stand will appear in all three Giant Robots and at the bottom of the Excavation Site. You need to put the in the Excavation Site, the Staff of Ice inside Freya, the Staff of Wind inside Oden, and the Staff of Lightning inside Thor.
As soon as you complete this step, all three Giant Robots will make their patrol at the same time. They will continue to do this until you complete Step 7.
Solo Strategy: I will start placing the Staves in the Giant Robots as soon as I can, but I will keep the Staff of Fire equipped until I am ready for Step 7. The Staff of Fire is easy to place, since you do not have to wait for one of the robots.
7. Break The Seal
This Step requires all staves to be placed and the G-Strike Beacon. You will not need to have the Maxis Drone built until Step 8.
In order to break the seal you will need to have one player enter one of the Giant Robots. Once he is inside the Player with the G-Strike Beacon will throw one on the seal. Once it is on the seal the player in the Giant Robot will need to push the red button. This button does not appear until all the staves have been placed properly (Step 6).
The seal is a white circle next to a downed airplane. It can be found by Generator Station 5. Look outside of the playable area, in the direction that the Giant Robots start their patrol.
Wait until you see that Thor's foot has the entrance. Shoot the bottom of his foot from a distance. As he is getting close, throw your G-Strike Beacon on the seal, and run into the area that he will be stepping. Push the red button as soon as you spawn in Oden.
8. Release The Panzar Soldats
Release the Panzar Soldats by activating the Maxis Drone close to the broken seal, he will fly into it. Samantha gives a clue to this step, she tells you that no mortal can enter.
Multiple Panzar Soldats will appear shortly after Maxis enters the seal. 2 Panzer Soldats will appear when trying this in solo. Eight will appear in a four player game.
You must survive the attack, and kill all of the Panzer Soldats.
Equip the upgraded Ray Gun Mark 2, and shoot for their face. You can drop both before they even have a chance to shoot their claw.
9. Get The Maxis Drone Back
This step can be time consuming since you will need to wait for a Zombie Blood to appear. I normally try to keep the Zombie Blood Power-Up we received for powering Generator Station 1. I will use it to take down the plane.
This Step has three parts.
- You will need to find Zombie Blood in order to see an invisible plane that is flying up above. It looks similar to the plane you shot down when getting the fragments for the Staff of Fire.
- Find and kill the invisible zombie that is running clockwise around the outside of the Excavation Site. You can hear him a little when he runs by, but you will need Zombie Blood in order to see him. You will wan to use a powerful weapon. He is very quick, and will run away from you.
- Find and pick up the Maxis Drone from the body of the invisible zombie.
10. Upgrade Your Thunder Fists
Go to the bottom of the Excavation Site, and into the area that they staves were originally built. Each player will need to kill at least 20 Zombies with Thunder Fists. After they get the required kills an Iron Fist Power-Up will appear. Pick it up to upgrade Thunder Fists.
Upgraded Thunder Fist becomes more powerful, and seems to take on the element of the Staff you are carrying.
Solo Strategy: Gather a train and bring them to the bottom of the Excavation Site. Fire some rounds into their bodies to weaken them, and then punch the train with Thunder Fists.
11. Free Samantha
Put all the Staves back in their stands in the Crazy Place. Then kill zombies until a portal opens. After completing this step, Samantha will be freed and you will receive the achievement.
If you want to end the game and see the Cut Scene you can go to Step 12, the bonus step. If not then you can continue to play the game. You will not receive any extra achievement for completing the Bonus Step.
12. Bonus Step
Throw the Maxis Drone into the portal you just created. A beam of light will shine down. When approached, it will give you the option to teleport. If you do so the game will end and you will see the Cut Scene.

Jason on May 20, 2020:

Hahahaha all y'all noobs not knowing all this stuff and I'm sitting here doing the Easter egg SOLO. Dare to say it's not possible. It is quite possible.
vollas on June 13, 2017:
you dont need the thunder fists to get the g-strike beacon. You could use upgraded staffs melee attack, or bash the zombies with a shield...
ToxicxxArrow on May 07, 2017:
Hey A shepherd he is actually very accurate. The code for the piano Lightning staff upgrade is actually correct, done it many times. And yes u do need the thunder fists to get g-strike. In order for souls to go into the little rocks u have to get kills with the thunder fists.
A Shepherd1997 on April 18, 2017:
No offense but some of this information is incredibly inaccurate, you do not need the thunder fist to get the g strike beacon, as well as the code this site has listed for the piano for the lightning staff is wrong

Can somebody explain to me why i can't break the seal?????? In my first attempt at the easter egg, i succeeded in breaking the seal at my first try, unfortunately i screw up the last step, I puted the staff in the excavation site -_- i needed to put them in the crazy place and when i realized it, i got killed activating the teleporter to go back to no man's land.
Since then, i've tried it like 6 times and can't seem to break the seal. I tried trowin the G beacon before entering the robot and sprinting Inside the foot; failed. Then I tried to press the button when the purge sequence was at 1 and then running to throw the beacon. I threw it perfectly, it landed perfectly, the bombs landed on the seal perfectly, but no results. I did all the steps correctly, buti got the iron fist before upgrading the staves. I've tried it a lot of times, still the same result, and i've heard Samantha saying; Only the robots can break the seals. Please help. PS: I didn't gather the golden discs with the maxis drone, but i've got all the rewards from the chest.
