Outside of my day job as a human resource professional, I am an avid gamer with a great passion for "Call of Duty."
In order to complete the Maxis or Richtofen High Maintenance Easter Egg in Die Rise, you will need to punch the tower in a specific order. The order changes each game, but Majhong tiles hidden in the map give clues as to what direction is needed.
There are 8 Mahjong tiles placed in 11 possible locations. Four of the tiles are directional or 'Wind' tiles. The other four Mahjong tiles are numbered or 'Bamboo' tiles. The tiles come in four colors: red, black, blue, and green. The colors allow you to match a direction with a number.
In this guide:
- The directional tiles
- The numbered tiles
- How the tiles work
- Possible locations of the tiles
- Direction of the tower corners
The Directional or 'Wind' Mahjong Tiles
There are four directional or 'Wind' Mahjong tiles. Each tile represents one of the four main directions on a compass: north, south, east, or west.
- The north tile will always be found on the Tower. Along with matching a number by color, it also shows the player which corner of the Tower is north.
The Numbered or 'Bamboo' Mahjong Tiles
The four numbered or 'Bamboo' tiles indicate the order in which each corner of the tower should be activated. Each tile represents a number from one to four.
- The tile for one is the only tile that does not use dots. Instead it has a picture. This tile can be confused with a directional tile.
- Each of the four numbered tiles will match a directional tile by color. These will indicate the order in which the tower should be hit. Each of these clusters equal one.
- The tile for two is made up of two clusters. Since the clusters are on top of one another, this tile is frequently misrepresented as one.
- The tile for three is easy to identify. There are three separate clusters.
- The tile for four is often mistaken for a two. There are four separate clusters, but since they are on top of each other it can be confusing.
How the Mahjong Tiles Work
Each Mahjong tile will be either blue, black, red, or green. There will be one directional and numbered tile of each color. The tiles that are the same color will 'match'. This will give a direction and a number. For instance, if both north and three were green, then the North Corner of the Tower would need to be activated third.
I use table 1.1 when I am matching the tiles in a game. I will not need to find every Mahjong tile in order to discover the order. I can use the process of elimination in order to determine the forth tile if I have three of either direction or numbers. Table 1.2 shows that I have found three direction tiles and three numbered tiles. I have not found the red direction tile, but the only direction left is East, so I can fill in that blank. I can do the same with the blue numbered tile. Table 1.3 displays the final order with the two tiles that were not yet found, but could be assumed.
Possible Locations of the Mahjong Tiles
There are only 8 tiles, but there are 11 possible locations for those tiles. That means three of the locations below will not have a tile. The tile locations are spread throughout the entire map.
When describing the possible part locations I am going to start at the room that you originally spawn and work my way to the bottom of that building. I will then move to the top if the Upside Down Building and work my way to the bottom floor of that Building. Then I will move to the bottom floor of the Power Building and work my way to the Top Floor.
- Spawn Room Desk: You can find this first tile when you first spawn into the game. It is on the large desk in the back of the room. If you were sitting at the desk, the tile would be on the far right hand side.
- Broken Stairs By SUV: Next we can look on the broken stairs that are in the same area as the SVU. If you were going to drop down into the SVU room you would be dropping onto the broken stairs. The tile can be found on one of the partial steps.
- Bottom of the Escalator: The top of the escalator is by the top Quick Revive Elevator and the bottom is on the same floor as the PDW. Look at the bottom of the escalator close to the wall.
- The Couch by The Mystery Box: The next possible location is in the Upside Down Building. It is on a couch cushion in the hallway outside of the room where the Mystery Box appears at the start of the game.
- The Elevator Shaft: A Mahjong tile is in the elevator Shaft that leads to the AN-94. When jumping down it is on the platform below the Galvaknuckles. This area is dark, which can make it hard to tell the difference between blue and black or blue and green.
- The Buddha Room: This room is often called the Buddha Room because of the two large Buddha statues. The tile is on the balcony on the far corner of this room. It is in the same area as the Teddy Bear.
- Shelf by the AK-4U: There is a tile on a shelf on the bottom floor of the Power Building. After jumping across from the Buddha room you can drop down to the ledge that holds the AK-4U. Go into the doorway and take the first left. There will be a room that has a shelf on the wall. Check that shelf for a tile.
- Table in the Power Room: There are a lot of sewing machines in the room that has the Power Switch. When entering this room look at the first table on the far right hand side for a Mahjong tile.
- Kitchen Counter: A tile is on the counter in the Kitchen on the third playable floor of the Power Building. The kitchen is beside the MP5.
- Dead Man's Corner: Look in the small room on the roof in dead man's corner. This room is across from an elevator. You can drop into this area by taking the walkway that has the Semtex Grenades on the wall. The tile is on a chair beside the possible Mystery Box Location.
- The Tower: The final location for a Mahjong tile is the Tower. The North tile is always on the railing marking the north corner of the Tower.
Direction of the Tower Corners
The tile on the railing will always be the north directional tile. This allows us to use that corner as a guide.
- The corner on the opposite side of the tile is the south corner.
- The corner to the right of the north tile is the west corner.
- The corner to the left of the north tile is the east corner.
