  1. An interesting and well thought out theory. You've clearly put a lot of time and thought into it, which I can appreciate. I'm sceptical however, as people have been trying to make some kind of connection between campaign and zombies since Black Ops 1. And while most of the theories are enjoyable reads, I just think Treyarch like to tease us a little bit. Take the whole GKNova 6 thing in in Blops 1 for example. They were blatantly trying to stir things up with that, and a lot of people have speculated that Nova 6 is related to the gas crawlers from Kino Der Toten. Whether or not there is any concrete evidence to back it up I'm not sure. And don't forget in Vorkuta when one of Reznov's steps was "ascend from darkness" people went nuts over that! I think that campaign and zombies are their own seperate entities, and 3arc just like to put little nods and ambiguous references in there to make people ponder. PS. It's worth noting that not all 300,000 casualties of the Singapore Disaster were test subjects. I think there were only the ones that we see in the depths of the Coalescence building. (And maybe a few more behind the scenes.) It states in the data vault that a "quarantine zone was established that encapsulated roughly 25 square miles..." So the majority of casualties were civilians who lived near the facility who either died from the release of the Nova 6 or were shot by the SAF for trying to leave the quarantine zone.
  2. I agree. I don't play public matches for the first week or so of a map releasing, I like to get my bearings on a map, have a look around, find a good spot to camp so I know I can survive comfortably before I start digging. you are right about hearing bits and bobs, I try to avoid spoilers but you will inevitably come across some whether it's from other people's mouths or from topic titles on here etc. I just try to minimise what I see/hear. For example, I read a title mentioning "the wisp" on DE, but that was it, so I knew there was a wisp but not what it was or where it would come into play. If you want someone else to play ZNS with when it drops I'll happily play with you, and there certainly won't be any false discoveries/drip feeding. It'd be cool to play with other people who are like minded and interested in giving the Easter egg a go. I'm a proud person and if I happen across spoilers, I wouldn't pretend like I worked them out myself.
  3. I know that @NaBrZHunter kind of already did a post about this but I thought I'd do a little poll because I'm interested to see the results. As the title suggests, I like to try and work out the easter eggs on my own without the use of the internet or other sources (like randomers spouting spoilers in public matches) I've just seen a video of a guy complaining about how he thinks the easter eggs aren't fun and are boring because, in his words "you have to hold a crawler for 15-30 minutes while another player watches the walkthrough on youtube and then does the step." And he implies that the vast majority of players do the easter eggs this way, and the whole time I was thinking to myself, perhaps it would be more fun for you if instead of holding a crawler while someone else consults a video, you tried to work it out yourself. As an example he talked about the paintings for the Wolf Bow and said that they were stupid and that he doesn't want to spend ages wandering around the map pressing X on everything until something happens. I personally think that the paintings actually weren't that hard to figure out, once I realised they changed positions between games I knew that they were significant and so investigated them further. I personally enjoy the added challenge of trying to figure out what's next. It's taken me a while but I have been working my way through the Der Eisendrache egg, mainly solo, but sometimes with a friend of mine. I play a game or two every couple of days after work and have progressively been working it out since (xbox) release. It can be time consuming and frustrating at times, but I enjoy the satisfaction of making progress. They're certainly not easy, and I'm not as quick as some of the pros who manage to work things out mere hours after the maps drop. It took me about 3 weeks to work out all 4 bow upgrade quests, then I stopped thinking about easter eggs for a week or two and just had a bit of fun with the bows and went for high rounds (round 49 solo is my record) and then picked up the trail again. I'm hoping to have the easter egg completed by the time ZNS releases for xbox. So... My question is, do you try to do it yourself without consulting guides on here/videos on youtube? Or do you wait for the guides and then follow them step by step?
  4. What is with the Rockets?

    I got really excited the first time I heard him say "Operation Shield" as I thought they were going to give us some answers to a really old question. In Shi No Numa, in a certain area you can hear voices whispering "So close to the shield..." I remember years ago @carbonfibah made a post or a tweet about it, and I think I remember a developer (or perhaps the 3arc community manager at the time JD_2020) teasing him by replying "but what does it mean?" Or something like that. I don't recall that question ever being answered.
  5. What is with the Rockets?

    I believe the quote is around round 7 or 8. But I'm not sure. I think it's a round based quote rather than an action based one.
  6. What is with the Rockets?

    No harm in throwing ideas around! They might lead to something after all. The only problem with that idea is that Richtofen says "I shall continue with operation shield and join you shortly." If operation shield was to do with the shield around the MPD he would surely have to join Groph on the moon first, before he could continue with the operation.
  7. What is with the Rockets?

    Bear in mind that I haven't yet finished the DE Easter egg or seen the cutscene, so I'm not sure if there's relevant information I've yet to uncover. Also being an Xbox player I haven't played ZNS and am avoiding gameplay/spoilers at all costs, but... My immediate thought process regarding the exchange between Richtofen and Groph was that Operation Shield is the code name for Richtofens mission to acquire the Golden Rod and Focusing Stone as per Black Ops 1. My main reasoning for this is that Groph says "The machine is ready, and awaiting the conduit." I believe the machine in question is the MPD and the conduit is the Golden Rod key. This is backed up by the fact that in the projector images we can see that the MPD is closed, and we know from Moon that the GR key is required to open it. The only thing that makes me question my little theory here is the fact that we know from previous radios that Samantha materialises on the moon and runs straight into the MPD. (Which would have to be open.) This leads me to believe that sometime between the happenings of DE and the events of W@W/BO1 original Richtofen would have gone and gathered the pieces of the key to open the MPD, completing "Operation Shield," when he would then meet Groph on the moon and use the key aka the "conduit" on the MPD, but somehow Samanatha interrupted their plan. There are holes in this idea, such as it would mean that Sam wasn't instantaneously teleporter to the moon. Which currently I can't find evidence for, but that's just my two cents. TL:DR I believe "Operation Shield" is Richtofen's mission to acquire the Golden Rod and Focusing Stone.
  8. DARK OPS: CoDZ Easter Egg Champions...Unplugged!

    @NaBrZHunter I gotta say, I very much appreciate this thread! It's good to know there are others like me out there! I resisted all temptations to watch any footage of DE for the month before it dropped on Xbox, I do my best to avoid spoilers and pretty much refuse to google things. For me it's all about the discovery, and nothing compares to working things out at your own pace. So far I've managed to upgrade one bow and have discovered a couple of steps for another. The third ragnarok DG-4 part is still evading me too! Good luck to all my fellow non-googlers! PS. If anyone with a similar mindset wants to join forces on any of the current/future maps, hit me up on Xbox, gamertag same as username.
  9. Easter Egg Hunting 101

    Hello all, I'd like to make a request of some of the Easter egg hunters on the forum. I love searching the maps for Easter eggs and secrets and I think it would be nice if we could start a thread where experienced hunters could share some advice about what kind of things to look for. Some of the Easter eggs are quite complex and I often wonder how people discover them, for example in SoE, I recently found out about upgrading L'il Arnies and I wondered, how did the first person discover the top hat etc, and that you have to use Arnies on them, and another example, the trip mine donut carts, like, were there hints and things that lead people to put trip mines under the carts or did they just get lucky? TL:DR How do people find out the really obscure Easter Eggs? Are there clues that lead people to try certain things or do you just run around the map throwing little Arnies at thins until something works. If you have any Easter egg hunting tips, please share. EDIT - PS4 users if you could be so kind as to avoid Der Eisendrache spoilers if you are using examples that would be greatly appreciated.
  10. I really hope I'm right about this one... (EDIT) I was right!

    I was right!! Sorry for the double post, but... I called this 6 months ago from a two sentence audio clip and I'm feeling a little bit pleased with myself! "Also among the cast is Stargate SG-1 and Once Upon a Time’s Tony Amendola as Dr. Yousef Salim."

  11. Hello all. This isn't a giant revelation or a complex theory, I'm more of a reader than a poster here on CoDz, however I just had to say something having just watched the new story trailer. Firstly I'd like to begin by quoting myself from the day the first Black Ops 3 teaser trailer was released: The original post can be found in this thread - http://www.callofdutyzombies.com/index.php?/topic/178987-cod-2015-viral-campaign-videopictures-codz-official-discussion-thread/ And now after watching the new trailer I'd like to further back up my claim with the following two images. Have a look at the likeness of the character in the trailer and good old Master Bra-Tac. I strongly believe that the guy being grabbed in the trailer is Dr Salim, and Dr Salim is Tony Amendola. As I said, I really hope that I'm right about this one.
  12. Bring on April 26th! Having just watched that trailer, the chap who says "our greatest barrier is our own fear" sounds quite a lot like Tony Amendola to me. If there's any Stargate fans here he played Master Bra-tac in Stargate SG-1. He was also in Continuum among other things. Can anyone else hear the similarity or just me?
  13. if it is possible to rip the video/audio, do we still have any audio buffs around? I vaguely recall someone running some of the GKNova6 audio though a sonic visualiser and there being images/words hidden within the audio. The snap that sounds a bit like a distorted car horn seems like it's worth analysing.
  14. Revolution should now be downloadable!

    Just started downloading from the in-game store. UK. 10:40am. Boom!
  15. Maybe A Post From Treyarch? Hint?!

    "PE2HR" is exactly what the sign says whem the lights flicker. so its an obvious nudge towards the diner. To be fair, there are parts and things related to the Easter egg pretty much everywhere else. Bus depot(navcard, meteorite) tunnel (jet gun part) farm (tvs) power station (jet gun part, table) town is where you build the jet gun. And obv Faux-Nacht, Bowie hut and Tower. I've not got very far into the Easter egg yet so I may be wrong, but when I think about parts and stuff related to the EE the only place I don't think of is the Diner. And the roof makes me suspicious. Granted the galvaknuckles are up there, but is that the ONLY reason to go up there? Surely not. I think a thorough search of the diner needs to be conducted. I've gone prone and looked under cars and in the booths in the diner for things but no joy so far. My thinking is, in order for the writing to even show up to pick up the meteorite, you must crouch, so there may be a part somewhere that you need to lie down next to for the "press X to take part" to show up.
