Here’s everything you need to know about Blood of the Dead’s latest Easter Egg.
After months of hunting, the Call of Duty Zombies community have finally made some headway on a long sought after Easter egg. The Golden Scalpel, also known as the shank knife, can know be obtained on Blood of the Dead.
Thanks to Youtuber “Glitching Queen” we know what steps are required to unlock this highly powerful melee weapon. First, players must have both the Hell’s Redeemer and Golden Spork. Click here for detailed steps on that.
Next, players must get 100 Golden Spork kills anywhere on the map. Once completed, the player should hear a sound queue signifying they completed this step. It is suggested that players use the new “Ethereal Razor” perk in their modifier slot here as it gives extra melee damage.
[NOTE: Originally this guide stated that the melee kills needed to be near the bathtub, however recent findings by Glitch prove that this is not the case.]
After this step is complete, head to New Industries in the room adjacent to the Trap room and Buildable table where a Bathtub can be found. Interacting with the tub using the X (Xbox One) or Square (PS4) button will cause a skeleton hand to pull your Golden Spork into the tub.
The next step is to find three colored rocks around the map and throw your Hell’s Redeemer at them. The green one can be found outside the window in D-Block. The blue rock is by the docks. After shield blasting the generator, a crane holding a net will move into place. Throwing your Hell’s Redeemer at the net will collect this rock. The red rock is outside the Warden’s House in Eagle Plaza. Click the images below from Youtuber “Glitch” for better views.
After you have the three rocks, place them by the three traps around the map. The red rock goes near the blade trap in New Industries, the green rock goes on top of the drain under the acid trap in Cafeteria, and the blue in the doorway of the blade trap in the Warden’s Office. Glitch mentions that he was able to hear the rocks being placed, but not see them, yet it still worked.
After the rocks are placed, you must get 100 kills with each trap. You will know you have finished this step when the rocks turn into smaller gems that can be picked up.
Once all three gems are acquired, take the fast travel from Cafeteria to West Grounds. Before the grate closes, throw the Hell’s Redeemer at the golden nugget shown below.
The nugget will bounce back behind you with an easy to spot reflective surface. Pick it up and bring it to the metal presser in the New Industries building where you build the MagmaGat. Interact with the table and two ghosts will build the Golden Scalpel for you. Interact with it again and the Golden Scalpel is yours!
But wait! It doesn’t seem like this is the end. For a while now, dataminers have found a Golden Sporkknife in the game that looks like a combination of this Scalpel and the the Spork. When this Scalpel is finished, you can actually put it back into the bathtub, yet the next steps are still unknown. [UPDATE: The new steps are known and can be found here.]
Once again, thanks to Glitching Queen and her team for finding these steps and thanks to Glitch for his quick and easy to follow guides. Check out the whole tutorial below:
COD 2020 Teasers: Black Ops 4 Summit map, Treyarch social profile
As we opened our new crates that Activision sent through, Black Ops 4’s Summit map got an update.
The screens in the center of the map in Black Ops 4 turned on which seem to match to what some of our slides show:
There’s also a look at clocks of 4 out of the 5 locations that some of us got as part of the slides to see:
These changes do appear to be new, especially the screens with the targets on them. Analyzing older images of the maps showcase that the screens were not showing the same thing.
In addition, Treyarch has updated their cover photo on social channels.
It’s getting cold out there…
Gameplay from Black Ops 4’s canceled campaign mode revealed
A user on Reddit, r/BlackOps4, has shared what appears to be the very first footage of gameplay from the canceled campaign mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which released in October 2018, was the first Call of Duty game to not have a traditional campaign mode, instead opting to have three online-based modes.
Treyarch insisted throughout the year that they really didn’t have plans for a campaign and were focusing on an online connected experience for Black Ops 4, but many reports and sources described the campaign as being too ambitious and canceled because of issues with development.
On Reddit, a user has shared about two minutes of alpha footage of the gameplay of Black Ops 4’s campaign. The campaign, in alpha-state footage (meaning its not complete), had a very similar HUD to the MP experience of Black Ops 4. The user claims that the campaign and MP were supposed to be connected, and that’s why the HUD is so similar.
The gameplay starts by showing a message of “FIND THE AQUILUS CEO.”
Here’s the gameplay footage:
The user who posted this has not said where they got this gameplay footage as of now. He said he only has this footage, alongside an augmented footage of the engine of BO4, which he is not releasing at this time.
