Black Ops III Terminal - Omnipedia ("THE GIANT" REFERENCE FOUND)

Recommended Posts

Tac    462

Hey guys, Tac here, and this is a thread about the new Black Ops III terminal, Omnipedia.  I've spent a lot of time in the terminal and am here to not only present my current findings, but ask the community for their findings or ideas on what to do! Be mindful that if I have any orange text inside a quote describing a file, it's my own doing, not the terminals.

 

Introduction

To access this feature, you must complete the first two or three missions in the campaign (can't remember which), and it's known as the Data Vault.  You'll enter the Codex and see the following home page (because of scrolling, I've had to photoshop the two images together):

First and foremost, you must understand the controls.  You cannot click anything other than the links provided to you in a given post.  The link that you're in the vicinity of will show as orange, whereas the others will be blue.  The search bar at the top?  Can't use it, unfortunately. 

 

I stumbled upon a blog ran by a woman named Tara, who focuses on technology.  She had the following two blog posts that contained the words zombies, though I don't think much can be drawn from them:

After each mission in the campaign, I went to the terminal to see if I may have unlocked something and I hadn't.  Then, during a mission, I picked up a collectible (think 'intel' from other games, except they're objects, such as vases).  I went back to Omnipedia and noticed that these collectibles are stored in what's known as your bookmarks, which you can access through hitting your right bumper.  Each collectible can be about anything and everything, from an Egyptian hat to a bottle of alcohol.  Here's an image of what the bookmarks look like (bottom third of page):

I completed the campaign and it unlocked a few more bookmarks, one of which was a dossier on a character from the campaign:

Beverly,
 

Attached please find the team's findings on the potential impact of Nova 6 on our current work with Coalescence Corporation.

We're still gathering data on the far-reaching implications of this report, but things are looking promising for [CLASSIFIED] as I think this is ultimately the edge we've been looking for to seal this up.
 

Please give this a look before end of the week. It's definitely worth the read.

Beverly,

 

[CLASSIFIED] are really close to allowing us access to [CLASSIFIED]. I know we've had this discussion numerous times, but I am going to keep pushing for access to the surplus materials. I understand the ramifications, but if we want to continue on our current trajectory then we need to [CLASSIFIED] and make this happen.

 

It's a quid pro quo situations here.

After this, however, I found something that everyone should agree is of value.  In the very first image of this post, I'm hovering near "Data-scrape of the week" and upon entrance, things get interesting.  It shows what appears to be a forum named "Fortean News Network" (Fortean meaning "of, relating to, or denoting paranormal phenomena") and while I originally saw the binary in the header, it wasn't until @BlindBusDrivr started talking about it that I figured I'd translate it:

The first line obviously can be comprehended, but the rest is.. Nonsense.  I don't know much about ciphers so I won't make any comments about that, but perhaps it's something to look into.  Additionally, I added all the code together into one long string and translated it (for fun, because I don't think it's actually one string) and that is what the bottom line is.

 

Now, onto the actual content! There is a post by a user named Thread Count (his only post, actually).  The post itself isn't too interesting but if you go to his profile, it says his location is "New York City, United States" and his bio says "I lurk in the shadows."  Also in his bio are two links, one of which is titled "The Truth Depot."  When one opens up this "Truth Depot," they're presented with plenty of entries regarding the CIA.  However, in the comments, one "ElGiganteX4" (which is literally "The Giant" in Spanish, mind you) posted the following:

Now, for those of you wishing to look into these numbers, I don't believe they are anything substantially important.  In the terminal, it says that Druon "sprang into notoriety in 2037 when they leaked information stolen from the CDP's central databases showing that they were dealing with the NRC several years before the NRC became signatories of that Mutual Defense Pact."  In an email dated February 12, 2037, a CDP Lieutenant sent an NRC General an email saying to "expect transfer of 1.4B KES to account #090501090603."  Obviously, same numbers, so I believe that they are related to Druon's leaking of this information rather than anything about Zombies.  Of course, I could always be wrong.  One could easily ask why, six years prior to that email, Druon would have that number.  Additionally, if one turns those numbers into coordinates, they get two African countries (Nigeria for North/East and Guinea for North/West), which is peculiar because the NRC stands the Nile River Coalition and the payment was in KES, or Kenyan Schillings.  Possible Buried connection in some distant, weird way?  Therefore, it's always possible it has to do with zombies, but as of now, I'm going to say no.

 

EDIT: @Rissole25 informed me that if you take away all zeros in the numbers, you're left with 951963, which is also the birth date of one Raul Menendez (September 5, 1963).  As the founder of Cordis Die, a group that Druon clearly admires, it's very possible they'd make reference to him.  However, seeing as his birth date has come and gone, it's uncertain exactly how Druon could be 'joined' on those numbers.

 

Now, lastly, I was informed today that there is something secret about the terminal.  In the top left hand corner of the data vault is a rotating S, and when resting on it, hold all shoulder buttons and then press Square then Triangle (PS4) or X then Y (XB1), which will unlock the following menu:

 

9RqSYwx.png

 

Credit goes to Ron_Scottznbrgr on /r/codzombies for posting about it.  Now, you may not enter a code over 9 digits long (starting at 10, it freezes up).  Having verified it myself, the term MANIFEST has been used and worked to get a large amount of Fabrication Kits in the campaign.  However, it doesn't appear that there is ever an indication that you entered a correct code, so that certainly makes things interesting! I've entered loads of zombies codes and nothing appears to have changed in Omnipedia, but I'll keep you updated with what's new!

Totally my fault

I be honest i couldnt be bothered to go back and find the reddit post as i had the binary in a .txt doc on my desktop

Its bad form and if you look at all other members they do credit people in there posts so its my fault and shouldnt reflect on the site

Cunambula    22

In sifting through the emails ( I think linked from Krueger's CIA dossier) we find emails to and from alex mason,,,,in one of these a friend is telling him to change his password, he then gives an idea on how/what  , he says pick a name , like a mentor , and a number, like a year you won something big.... well in the next email (from a different person)  it reveals that he won a big event (golf) in '53 (iirc) ....this just SCREAMED at me that we are being given his password,  but where do i enter it, how do i get to the emails/login.,.. Is it possible that this is his login from BO1 , or maybe even meant to go back and entered into BO1 ?

The combo of this data vault and the campaign story, and blurring the lines between worlds is awesome.  :)

I find about half of this shit myself, getting myself all excited finding all that morse code with Druon and what-not, only to find it's all here...

...really though, good job. This is all amazing stuff. I can only wonder how far this rabbit hole will go...

"The Giant" could refer to Druon considering Druon Antigoon refers to a mythical giant in Flemish folklore. It'd make sense for these Cordis Die type of people to refer to the western world as "Imperialists."

You probably already know this, but not every one listens to the audio logs for the collectibles. Krueger had emails about Nova 6, the toxic gas from BO1 that Reznov tells us about (and that killed CoD WaW's Pvt. Dimitri), and Kane gets killed by it in the last mission. If you listen to the audio log for the Broken E-Link White Board from Hypocenter, which is found in the testing room, Kane says that it refered to some unknown gas that could be a pesticide, herbal fragrance gas, or a toxic warfare gas, which is refering to the Nova 6 that they were testing that caused the quarantine. Also this is kinda related but in Nightmares, Navo 6 has been changed to the Zombie virus, Virus 61-15 aka Element 115.

After Namur became part of the Spanish Netherlands in the 1640s, its citadel was considerably strengthened. Louis XIV of Franceinvaded in 1692, capturing the town and annexing it to France. His renowned military engineer Vauban rebuilt the citadel. French control was short-lived, as William III of Orange-Nassau captured Namur only three years later in 1695 during the War of the Grand Alliance. Under the Barrier Treaty of 1709, the Dutch gained the right to garrison Namur, although the subsequent Treaty of Utrecht of 1713 gave control of the formerly Spanish Netherlands to the Austrian House of Habsburg. Thus, although the Austrians ruled the town, the citadel was controlled by the Dutch. It was rebuilt again under their tenure.

General Jean-Baptiste Cyrus de Valence's column laid siege to the city on 19 November 1792 during the War of the First Coalition and, after 12 days, the city surrendered on 1 December and its whole garrison of 3,000 men was taken prisoner. France invaded the region again in 1794, annexing Namur and imposing a repressive regime. After the defeat of Napoleonin 1815, the Congress of Vienna incorporated what is now Belgium into the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. Belgium broke away from the Netherlands in 1830 following the Belgian Revolution, and Namur continued to be a major garrison town under the new government. The citadel was rebuilt yet again in 1887.

Namur was a major target of the German invasion of Belgium in 1914, which sought to use the Meuse valley as a route into France. On August 21, 1914, the Germans bombarded the town of Namur without warning. Several people were killed. Despite being billed as virtually impregnable, the citadel fell after only three days' fighting and the town was occupied by the Germans for the rest of the war. Namur fared little better in World War II; it was in the front lines of both the Battle of the Ardennes in 1940 and the Battle of the Bulge in 1944. The town suffered heavy damage in both wars.

Namur continued to host the Belgian Army's paratroopers until their departure in 1977.

 

The imperialists found us. Flee while you can.

 

Go to the city of Walcourt for more information. There you will find a market. Seek out the man with the red scarf and tell him "The Giant Has Risen." More information will follow.

 

 

That man in the Red scarf my friend is Dr. Monty
