Deviled Easter Egg in Black Ops Multiplayer Map Revealed



After it was hinted at by Treyarch, an enterprising group of Black Ops found the devilish secret hidden in Nuketown.

The multiplayer map Nuketown in Black Ops pretty referential unto itself. Back in the 50s and 60s, there were fake towns like this set up in the deserts of the southwest in order to test the effectiveness of nuclear weapons. Such a place was even lampooned in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull with the eponymous character attempting to hide in a refrigerator as a nuclear blast occurred around him. The Nuketown map in Black Ops is chock full of tongue-in-cheek humor, from mannequins set up as nuclear targets to a full-on Next-Gen Tactics [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQSNhk5ICTI] was able to unlock the secret for the first time yesterday.

By shooting off the heads of every mannequin within fifteen seconds, a song starts to play over Nuketown's loudspeakers. It's a little hard to make out at first, because of the quiet nature of the first few bars, but it's unmistakably the Rolling Stone song Sympathy for the Devil. "Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste."

Check out how the Next-Gen team accomplished the feat in the video below.


Love it or hate it, this installment of Call of Duty sure has a lot of may not have figured out how to craft a single-player experience [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/105130-Black-Ops-Contains-a-Secret-Classic-Adventure-Game], but they are the masters of the easter egg.

I do love all the little extras bits they threw in...

I'll get Black Ops eventually! Maybe even for free depending on American charities...

Awesome. Treyarch really redeemed themselves with this game IMO.

OBJECTION!

The campaign was great. I could not disagree more with that review.
Objection denied. No review speaks for everyone, it is merely a glorified opinion.

So wait. Shoot off... ALL the maniquin's heads... In fifteen seconds... while people are blasting you to bits... waiy to hide an easter egg...

Does this have to be done solo or everyone in the map?

Heh, I loved World at War. In fact, I love it a lot more than Black Ops so far because World at War freakin' works!!!

In BLOPS I can't start the singleplayer, can't start zombie mode and I can't join about 99% of all multiplayer servers and if I manage to get one it's stuttery as hell.

It's cool and all, but I dislike that song. Too overplayed, even today, y'know?

I accept the fact that it has been discovered, but what does it mean?

I agree with this post. Except the word 'redeemed'. WaW is one of my favourite games! I freaking love it!

But yeah, anything with The Rolling Stones in is probably good.

You can't start the singleplayer?

How come?

OT: I love this game. It's so awesome, it still manages to get gradually better and I've already completed it.

I did enjoy it on whatever mission it is when Sympathy for the Devil plays. That was nice.
