A Zombies Quality Assurance tester at Treyarch Games was fired and immediately took to Reddit to answer questions about the mysteries in the popular Black Ops 4 mode.

The disgruntled former employee claims they were unfairly let go after a miscommunication involving when the QA team was set to take a lunch break.

The poster even described an altercation with security after initially not being allowed to pick up personal belongings after being fired.

Since Call of Duty Zombies has always included secrets and mysteries that can take months for players to solve, a QA tester with detailed knowledge of those Easter Eggs was a goldmine for the Zombies community. The employee’s misfortune was quickly turned into a benefit for players.

A number of previously unknown Easter Egg steps were revealed in the thread, including the missing steps for the Viking Boat puzzle on IX.

Warning: the following may contain spoilers for the Zombies mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

The poster commented on Voyage of Despair as well, revealing the purpose of the valves located in the Engine Room.

Use an upgraded elemental kraken to shoot the four center-most moving pistons. They will smoke and stop moving after being shot. Six blinking red light lead to six wheel to turn. After turning all six, go in the Turbine room and interact with the switch on the wall next to the door. This unlocks the PAP at all locations.

Also revealed was the exact method to get a mysterious Siren song to play, which has puzzled players until now.

Stay under water for 30 seconds and there will be about a 5% chance every three seconds of a verse playing. After a verse plays, you have to wait three minutes to hear another.

Black Ops Cold War Trophies Achievements
Treyarch
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has been in Open Beta for almost a month now.

It’s an impressive list of achievements that is bound to keep players busy for quite some time. However, players will be particularly drawn to some of the more complex ones.

Scorched Earth I and II stand out the most. To finish them, players will need to wreak havoc on enemy guard towers, mortars, and vehicles.

The Mind Trip achievement also drops a hint that there will be four different paths in the campaign mode and seven endings in total. Not only does that mean the campaign mode has learned from single-player RPGs with multiple endings.

It also means that it will stay fresh for longer, and give players another achievement that requires a lot of time and commitment.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War officially releases on November 13, right around the time PS5 and Xbox Series X launch.
