Ancient Evil Hidden Easter Egg Song Guide - Black Ops 4 Zombies

Easter Egg Guide: Part 1 -- Part 2 -- Part 3 -- Part 4 -- Part 5 --

Secrets: Apollo''s Shield -- Secret Song --

Hi guys,

here is how to activate the awesome song "STORMBOUND"  in the Ancient Evil Zombies map in Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 game.

This will involve finding 4 coins around the map which you need to shoot , in no particular order, in order to activate some kick ass music within the game. So far my favourite song has been on Mob of the Dead and is the song by Johnny Cash called "Rusty Cage". 

However this song is also very good and its good to get some new fresh music from time to time than listening to the same song on repeat for about 500 times till you get bored.....well I know that's what I do.

Lets find out the locations of these coins so we can get some free music without needing an iTunes account woo hoo!

Coin Location 1

The first coin can be located in the MARKETPLACE area, just to the left of the WORKBENCH. To the left is a window which looks into a room turning the corner to the left. In it is a lit candle up on the wall and in the corner of the L shape is a blue glowing coin, beside the broken chest of drawers, near the floor.

Simply shoot the coin and you will hear a Kaching! noise letting you know you have hit it successfully. It will then disappear into the bank account of.....or wallet.....of the many gods in this map no doubt.

Coin Location 2

Next we need to cash our cheques out on the way down to the SPARTAN MONUMENT AREA where the Zeus Perk is located. This coin is visible by standing in front of the SPARTAN STATUS whose holding the spear and the shield.....almost pointing in the direction or giving you the hint that you need to look here.

You will see another coin just on the side of the pillar for this small balcony above it. Looking to the right of the blood that's running down over the broken wall means your slap bang in the right place to see it. Shoot it, bag it and tag it so we can move onto the next coins location.


Coin Location 3

The last 2 coin locations are located in the Pack A Punch area, so we will need to hitch a ride on the Pegasus to get there and start out search.

As soon as you get off the Pegasus and are in the RIVER OF SORROW area, head down the right hand side and after a metre or two on the right you will come to the first fire lantern which is lit. To the left of this lantern is a statue, the coin is glowing in the darkness just behind this statue on its left hand side. 

Shoot it and add it to your growing coin collection, then we can move onto the last and final coin.

Coin Location 4

This last coin location is a bit sneaky as it is hidden under a desk in the CLIFF RUINS area, in the room where you build the PEGASUS STRIKE. This is the one with a forge in the middle with blue flames coming out of it.

If looking directly into the flames, to your right hand side against the wall is a table. Get on your knees and look under the table, underneath you will see a coin stuck right under the table, as if by someone in high school had stuck chewing gum under your desk.

Shoot this coin and this will activate the secret Easter Egg song ta-dahhhh! Who says you don't get anything for free these days?

Still Unsure how to do it? Check out the video below by Watchful Wolf …..not Winston Wolf:

Dial that magic number for Sunshine!

Now we need to make a little detour and head to the SPARTAN MONUMENT and pick up the REDEEMED HAND OF GAIA. Once we have the hand, head over to the OFFERING OF THE ATTALIDS area and looking to the left of this area while facing the building with the red columns on the front of it, you will see the statue of Danu up high to the left of it.

Beside it you will see a symbol of branches on the wall beside this statue of Danu which you need to shoot with the HAND OF GAIA. When you shoot it, it will make 2 more symbols appear on the BUILDING WITH THE RED PILLARS. Shooting both these branches / symbols need to be done at the same time with one shot.

Once the 2 have been shot with the HAND OF GAIA, another 3 symbols / branches will spawn 1 partly on the red pillar building, one upstairs on the building to the right and one down below on the building next to that. Checkout the screenshot to see these locations. 

These can be quite tricky to hit with one shot and it requires you to stand in various positions when attempting each in order for one shot to break into 2 or 3 and hit all symbols at the same time. The video at the bottom of this post by MRDALEKJD shows some top tips on where best to stand to shoot these much easier.

If the symbols disappear and you haven't shot all of them, just go back to the first symbol to reactivate the procedure. If done successfully it will spawn in one of the 6 arm bosses which you will need to take to the cleaners. When you kill him, this 6 armed beast will drop a GOLDEN SPEAR / LANCE which needs to be placed within the GOLDEN PUZZLE.

Right in front of the RED PILLAR BUILDING, place the GOLDEN SPEAR in the hole in the ground where the GOLD DIAL is located on the floor. Once placed you will notice a YELLOW LINE appear on the GOLDEN DIALS. We need to pay attention to this line as we will be referring to it frequently as a reference to complete this next step.

Next we need to keep going through the rounds until we start to see CATALYST ZOMBIES spawning in. These are the ones which are electrified and what we need to do is get them over to the golden spear and kill them on the dial. When this happens, you will notice a bolt of electricity electrifying the spear.

Head over to the Dial and on the ground you will see a panel has been opened and it will be scrolling through lots of different symbols. You will notice that one of them also has a distinct BLUE SYMBOL appear. Basically the sun dial is like a clock but instead of the numbers going from 1 to 12, they only go up to 8. So there are 8 panels in total on this sundial.

What we need to do with the sundial and in particular, the blue symbol that has appeared, is line the blue symbol up with the yellow line that is emanating from the spear in the centre. Your asking though how can I line the blue symbol up as its rotating when I cannot see it? Easy peasy, each time the sundial turns, in an anti clockwise direction, you will hear a loud click. This click means it has moved to the location of the next golden panel which is going to be closed. 

Simply counting the closed golden panels on the sundial from where the blue symbol appears to where the yellow line is being projected, will tell you when this blue symbol lands on the yellow line of lights golden panel. When the blue symbol hits this panel you hit the use button on the golden spear in the middle.

In MrDAREKJD's video he offers a very good explanation below in the following screenshot:

His opened panel where the blue symbol can be found is 5 panels away from the yellow light being projected from the spear. So when the BLUE SYMBOL did appear on the open panel, he counted 5 clicks / turns of the dial, which meant it would land exactly on the golden panel the light is being beamed from, then hit the use button on the spears beam of light and it opened one of the panels that's in line with the light revealing the blue symbol. If this happens it means you have done it correctly.

Now you just need to repeat the process 2 more times, getting another CATALYST ZOMBIE each time onto the dial, electrifying the spear and it will open another panel which you need to count from there to the beam of light when the blue symbol appears. Do this in total 3 times and the sun dial will have all 3 panels opened where the light is being projected along.

The second panel will tick slightly faster than the first one and the third panel will tick quite fast so you need to be careful with this one. Don't worry if you mess it open or hit it at the wrong time, just try again by starting with another CATALYST ZOMBIE and electrifying the spear to have another shot.

When done correctly the screen will shake like a bat outta hell and the spear will sink into the sundial, letting us know we can move onto the next step woo hoo!

All players gauntlets hand in hand

All players in the game at this point will need to possess a GAUNTLET within their load out and head over to the AMPHITEATER area, where you will find glowing circles on the ground. These glowing circles correspond to each players HAND OF GOD they have equipped, and is indicated to them which one they need to stand in by the circles colour matched to your players hand of gods colour:

  • Hand of Charon is RED
  • Hand of Hemera is YELLOW
  • Hand of Ouranos is BLUE
  • Hand of Gaia is GREEN

When playing on co-op mode, whose ever coloured circle appears on the ground, they need to jump into that circle and stay there. This will then activate a sharpshooter style game where you will use the hand you have equipped to fire ranged shots into the seated area of the Amphitheater where zombies will appear and you will need to kill them. You only have a very small amount of time to kill the zombies when you are standing on your spot light colour.

The spotlight will change locations and colours until this step has been completed. When zombies appear on the ground level where you are, you need to use your charged shots with your equipped hand, rather than the ranged shot. If your standing on a circle and you don;t see zombies in the stands, it means they have appeared on the ground.

So to keep it simple:

  • Stand only in the colour of the circle that matches your hand (changes only in co-op, in solo the circles are always the same colour)
  • If zombies are in the seated / stand area of Amphiteater, use ranged single shots
  • If zombies are on the ground level attacking you close range, use charged shots
  • Only limited amount of time to complete each new circle, if you fail, you will need to try again
  • This will god on for 3 rounds and you will have 5 circle changes per round so 15 in total
  • Work together if in Co-Op as sometimes the spotlight changes colour underneath you without you noticing

When completed successfully your artefact will move onto the next step saying to CLEANSE THE CENTRE

Spelling Bee

Next we need to go to the right hand side of the SPITFIRE WALL BUY located in the RIVER OF SORROW area and locate the door which has some weird blue symbols glowing on it. What we need to do here is spell the word POSEIDON.

The order in which these symbols need shot, changes from game to game, they are not just spelt in order the word is spelled. One the wall you shoot the symbols and when they turn blue, this means you have got the order correct. If you get a few symbols along and shoot another symbol but its not in the right order, all the blue symbols shot previously will go dark.

Simply shoot them in the same order you shot up to until they went dark, and choose a different remaining letter that needs spelled out. Each time you have shot the symbols in the correct order, they will turn blue. Keep doing this and retrying if you fail, as it will take probably more than one go, until all have lit up blue. The order in which they are shot in changes every play through.

When the correct order and spelling has been carried out, the door can be interacted with. If a player however is playing as the character SHAW and BRUNO,  either one of them if they are only in the game or both need to interact with this door at the same time to open it,

This will then play a cut scene between BRUNO and SHAW. Then you will return to the map where our next step will be to build the PEGASUS STRIKE.

3 Strikes Pegasus and your out! is it 3 parts?

In order to build the Pegasus Strike, we will need to find 3 parts to summon Pegasus along with a GIANT BOW AND ARROW that he just happens to carry with it at all ya do.

The first Pegasus Strike part can be located in:

  • River Of Sorrow - 3 locations, 1 as soon as you spawn into the River Of Sorrow, on the left hand side of the top of a sunken buildings lintel. 1 as soon as you spawn in, to the right where the door is that you spell out PEGASUS sitting on top of rocks beside the door. 1 near the fire lanterns in the central area.

The second Pegasus Strike part can be located in:

  • Python Pass - 1 location is near the pile of bones where the Hand of Charon is located. Shown by the large red circle on the floor. Another location is where the bones spawn location is, do a 180 degree when looking directly at it and it will be on the wall behind you on the left hand side. 1 Last location is when heading down the stairs in Python Pass, on the right hand side of the rock near the red crystals, you will see the second part which is a HAMMER.

The third Pegasus Strike part can be located in:

  • Cliff Ruins - on the opposite side of the Python Pass, 1 spawn location is behind the pillar to the right as soon as you enter the area. If its now in the first spawn location, from when you enter the area, go left instead of right to the pillar and it will be on top of a rock immediately to the left of this pillar. The last spawn location is near the Eagle Nest in front of the SNIPER RIFLE wall buy, on top of a rock facing it.

When you have all 3 parts, head over to the CLIFF RUINS area where the table is in the centre of the room. This is the table used to build the PEGASUS STRIKE, there will be a blue flame emanating from coals in the back of the room.

You can then pick up the PEGASUS STRIKE and be on your merry way. If you have however made this at an earlier point in the game and have swapped it for something else, you will need to keep hitting the MYSTERY BOX until you get the PEGASUS STRIKE out of the box, readily assembled, not like IKEA flat-pack furniture. This can be an expensive option so best leaving this till the end to build.

Now lets move onto the next part.

Ancient Evil Easter Egg Guide Part 2 - Black Ops 4 Zombies

Easter Egg Guide: Part 1 -- Part 2 -- Part 3 -- Part 4 -- Part 5 --

The Hand of Charon

Now lets do the the Hand Of Charon. What we need to do is find another one of the Fallen/Dormant Hands that are scattered around in the map in around 18 locations that were mentioned previously in part 1 of this guide, then bring it to the area called PYTHON PASS where the RED CIRCLE is projected on the ground. Then walk up to the small post with a few mini skulls on it and press the USE BUTTON to "Begin Initiation of Charon"

Once you begin this initiation, the Oracle will do its quote from Wayne's World of "We're not worthy, We're not worthy!", just kidding, but it will ask you to prove your worthiness to it. Of course this means locking you in the area again and trying to murder you by launching 1000's of zombies at you.

Simply survive and the room will become unlocked again. You can then pick up the Hand of Charon and start the upgrade process......and not the upgrade for your mobile phone I'm talking about here.

Now we need to take this hand to the RIVER OF SORROW area and while standing in the water, kill zombies using the HAND OF CHARON. After so many kills, you will be prompted to drink from the water and by the looks of this stuff, I'm guessing its unfiltered. 

When you do drink, it will turn your screen RED, While the screen is RED, you will not be able to regenerate any of your health after you have been hit so it will be very easy to go down if your not paying attention.

While the screen is red, we need to find 3 COINS. When you find one it will prompt you to pickup CHARONS OBEL. There will be many of them dotted about the area and when you walk up to them you will get 1 of 2 options:

  • Extinguish the Obol - These are fake coins and are not real, making a fool out of you
  • Pickup/Obtain the Obol - These are the REAL coins, the real deal and are probably worth billions back in the real world

All you need to do is simply find the REAL 3 COINS and then bring them back to the SHRINE.

When all 3 have been found and taken to the SHRINE, it will activate a portal which will lead you to the area called SHADOWS BANK. Again, like the Hand of Gaia, you will enter an area where you need to kill the zombies using charged shots from the weapon. 

When you get back, the hand will be able to be picked up and it will be the newly upgraded version....congratulations...pat on back time.

The Hand Of Ouranos

Again, lets find a Dormant Hand from one of their many spawn locations and head towards the CENTER OF THE WORLD AREA to the Ouranos Shrine, just across from Pack A Punch. Place the Dormant Hand in the Shrine which again will begin a lock down of the area and about 10 or more glowing blue zombies will appear that you have to destroy.

After the lock down has been lifted, the Dormant Hand will turn guessed it....the Hand of Ouranos. In order to upgrade this hand, we need to get some zombies airborne, with no parachutes, its a one way mission. We need to launch 3 ZOMBIES at 3 GIANT ARROWS.

The 3 giant arrow locations you need to bounce a zombie off are:

  • To the left of Pack A Punch (In Center of the World Area)
  • In the Python Pass area near the Charon Shrine
  • In the Cliff Ruins area near the broken pillars

When this is done correctly, a BLUE FEATHER will float through the sky which you will need to shoot at least twice in order for it to land near the shrine. When you have done this correctly, all 3 arrows will break and fall down.

After all 3 feathers have been shot, the portal will open at the shrine which will take you to an area called WINDS CREST. The hand at this point will have a charged shot that mimics a continuous THUNDERGUN blowing zombies away like a mammoth sized leaf blower. When you have killed enough zombies using this charged shot, the portal will appear and return you back to the Shrine where the hand can be picked up again if needed.

You can return any of these hands to their shrines at any point and pick them up later again, or swap them for another hand when you feel like it.

The Hand Of Hemera

First up, you know the drill....get another Dormant Hand. Then we need to head over to the Hemera Shrine which is in the MONUMENT OF CRATERUS area, to the right of the marketplace. Again a lock down will commence and glowing yellow zombies start to appear which you need to obliterate. 

When you have killed enough of them, usually around 10 to 15, the lock down will be lifted and you can now pickup the hand of Hemera, which the Dormant Hand has now become.

In order to upgrade this hand, we need to deliver 3 ORBS OF LIGHT TO THE SHRINE. To do this, we will need to adjust 3 mirrors around the map and in each mirror, checking out how good looking we all are as we go along.

The 3 mirror locations are:

  • On the outside of Apollo's Temple (Can be seen from outside the Gymnasium Bath House)
  • On the Bridge near the Upper Road Area
  • On the Temple Terrace Area

Mirror Location 1

Mirror Location 2

Mirror Location 3

We need to align these mirrors so they are facing up the way. We can do this by shooting them with a normal gun until they are facing directly up the way. We then shoot them with the hand Of Hemera which will fire the orbs of light into a bowl down below which we can pick up and deliver to the shrine. Its like Deliveroo only your delivering light instead of food?

When you pick and orb up and try to delivery it to the shrine, if you take too long to drop it off, it will start to fade. If it fades and go out you will need to repeat the process for the mirror and get another orb. When you get to the shrine, simply melee the left, middle or centre bowl to activate that part of the shrine.

When all 3 orbs have been delivered, a portal will open and you will be taken to an area called LIGHTS REFLECTION where you must prove yourself again with the hands charged shot which projects a beam of intense zombie killing, very GDI Ion Cannon style from Command and Conquer Games, super weapon onto the map. After killing enough of these zombies, again a portal will return you back to the main map in front of the shrine.

Here you can put the hand back and go get a different one or pick it up and take it with you.
