Terra Maledicta Easter Egg: How to Complete and Full Walkthrough

Zombies has become a staple of the Call of Duty franchise, providing players with a unique alternative to the usual additions of a single-player campaign and fast-paced multiplayer. While Black Ops Cold War's undead experience ticked several boxes, the next part of the Dark Aether storyline hosted on Vanguard missed the mark due to a number of reasons.

The Season 2 update contains a wealth of brand-new content for Der Anfang, much to the delight of the community. With the likes of the Ray Gun returning, Treyarch is doing its best to rescue Vanguard Zombies from the clutches of defeat.

Terra Maledicta is the latest area to appear in Vanguard Zombies and to everyone's delight, there is an Easter Egg quest to complete. With that said, find out how to complete the Terra Maledicta Easter Egg with our complete walkthrough.
