Treyarch released the post-apocalyptic,1980s theme Nuketown '84 map for free for all Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players on 24th November 2020. This is now the sixth time the map has appeared in a Call of Duty title, and as is tradition, Nuketown '84 has an Easter Egg for players to discover. If you don't want to figure it out for yourself, we've got you covered with a guide to unlocking the Nuketown '84 Easter Egg in Black Ops Cold War.

Nuketown '84 Easter Egg: How to unlock

The Nuketown '84 Easter Egg is one of the easiest yet to unlock in Black Ops Cold War. Players even managed to unlock it before the map released thanks to a glitch which allowed them to play Nuketown '84 early. 

Don't forget to claim your free Weapon Bundle filled with Nuketown-themed goodies, just in case you didn't know. Find out how to unlock the Nuketown '84 Easter Egg below the image, and consider this a spoiler warning.

With spoiler warnings out of the way, follow the simple steps below to unlock the Nuketown '84 Easter Egg in Black Ops Cold War.

  • Load into Nuketown '84 via a custom game.
  • Shoot off all mannequin heads in 60 seconds or less.
  • Enjoy the Easter Egg.

While you don't have to use a custom game to complete this challenge, it is much easier since, in a chaotic, regular match, you might find it very difficult to shoot off all the mannequin heads. 

For those who don't want to do the legwork, you should know the Easter Egg turns on a blue and purple digital filter, much like the look of old MAC games from the 1980s.

There's also a synth-wave track playing in the background for the full retro effect. Go ahead and check it out for yourself in Black Ops Cold War now.
