Unlock the new Dark Aether Rift.

A new easter egg has been added to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Zombies with the release of the Season Three Reloaded update, and you’ll need to collect a Giraffe Toy, Laptop with Stickers, Imaginary Friend Drawing, and Science Journal to access the new Dark Aether Rift.

Going through all that trouble will give you the chance to unlock some of the new Schematics introduced in the Season Three Reloaded update like the Sergeant’s Beret, Golden Mask Filter, and Dead Wire Detonators. It’s more than worth the effort, but like all Modern Warfare Zombies easter eggs, you need to know what you’re supposed to do first.

To start the easter egg and get the Giraffe Toy, all you have to do is complete the new Union story mission added in the Season Three Reloaded update. This involves a trip to the Dark Aether and pits you against a powerful Disciple named Taoxia. After successfully defeating Taoxia, you’ll be rewarded with the Giraffe Toy which is found in the Reward Rift.

The second relic item that you need for this easter egg is the Laptop with Stickers. To get this item to drop, you need to complete a mercenary camp with a tamed Hellhound and let the dog get the final hit on the sergeant. As long as the Hellhound lands the killing blow, a Reward Rift will spawn with the purple Laptop With Stickers. You can do this in any difficulty tier.

Where to Find the Imaginary Friend Drawing

The Imaginary Friend Drawing is hidden underneath a bed in the large house at I7 in the bottom right corner of the map. There’s a Pack-a-Punch machine there if you’re having trouble finding it.

Once you arrive at the house, head upstairs and find the bedroom. Go prone and look under the bed to find a small container. After some spooky dialogue, you’ll get the Imaginary Friend Drawing.

Where to Find the Science Journal

The Science Journal is the last relic that you need to complete this easter egg. All you need to do to get it is visit the purple storm and kill 50 Zombies inside of it. You don’t need to kill the Stormcaller or use any particular weapons. Just kill 50 Zombies and a Reward Rift will spawn with the purple Science Journal.

How to Upgrade Easter Egg Items to Gold

After obtaining the purple versions of the Laptop with Stickers, Imaginary Friend Drawing, and Science Journal, it’s time to upgrade them to gold rarity. To do so, head to the red zone center of the map.

There are three purple triangles hidden throughout Old Town that point to runes that you can shoot. If you shoot all three runes, lines will appear on the nearby buildings. Finding a vantage point that makes the lines look like a completed triangle will spawn a purple ring that requires you to kill Zombies.

Normally, this purple triangle easter egg would give you 2000 Essence, a Flawless Aetherium Crystal, and a Legendary Aether Tool. If you have one of the relic items with you, however, you’ll be prompted to “perform the summoning” in the center of the ring. This will spawn a lot of Zombies plus a super strong boss Zombie after the initial horde. Defeating the boss Zombie will spawn a special reward rift with the upgraded golden versions of each item.

You can see the locations of all three purple triangles marked on the map above. Keep your eyes on the ground to spot the purple triangles when you reach the marked areas, and remember that the corners of the triangle point to the runes that you need to shoot. Rinse and repeat until you have all three upgraded items.

With every golden item in your possession, head to the Dark Aether gate where the Union story mission begins. Place the upgraded golden items on the pedestals surrounding the gate. Each pedestal has an image showing the correct item that you need to place, and the icon will start to glow when you’ve put the right item down.

Once the items have been placed, a powerful Disciple named Mazoral will spawn. Defeating Mazoral will unlock the new Dark Aether Rift and provide you with a Sigil so you can jump right in and start hunting for the new Schematics added in this update.
