Mahjong And Match-3 Are Call of Duty's Latest Easter Eggs

Shaolin Shuffle, the latest map for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Zombies mode, has players performing some rather un-Call of Duty-like tasks in order to access all of its secrets. Tasks like playing an ersatz version of Candy Crush. Or even mahjong. Advertisement Released last week on PlayStation 4 and headed to Xbox One and PC next month, the “Continuum” map pack included, among other things, an epic Zombies mode experience set in a gritty 1970s New York City filled with undead donning giant hair and wide bellbottoms. As with previous Zombies modes, they also feature complex Easter egg quests, a series of hidden steps which are usually so difficult that they are solved by the entire community working together in tandem. The secrets conceal massive boss fights, badass weapon upgrades, and more storyline. Mahjong plays a surprisingly big part in the game. Ceramic mahjong tiles spawn all over the map, which you can pick up and put down anywhere you like. Some of the secrets require you to simply match similar tiles together for special equipment, like a sentry gun or a lava lamp.

Call of Duty's April Fool's Mode Was So Good, Players Want It To Be a Regular Thing

Pictured: the author For April Fools’ Day, Call of Duty turned its players into literal trash. And now fans are begging to become garbage again. Advertisement Over the weekend, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, the upgraded version of the 2007 game packed in with some editions of last year’s Infinite Warfare, introduced a game mode called “Prop Hunt.” Based on a popular game mode in Garry’s Mod, Prop Hunt lets one team disguise themselves as props on a map—cardboard boxes, dumpsters, trash cans—and tasks the other team with finding them. Folks, it was the most fun I’ve had with Call of Duty in years. And I’m not alone. Over 50 percent of the game’s active player base joined the “Weekend Warfare” to try out this mode, and they’re asking Activision and developer Raven Software to make it a permanent addition to the game. Advertisement Prop Hunt, as executed in Modern Warfare was a six-versus-six match. The team on offense had 3:30 to discover and kill the prop players. This garbage can has a good killstreak goin. The players on the prop team only received 30 seconds to blend into the map’s scenery before the hunt began. However, prop players…
