Want to know where all the Call of Duty Zombies Vanguard easter eggs are? Hidden easter eggs are present in every Call of Duty Zombies game, and they typically contain references to the Zombies lore and expand on story details. Vanguard is no exception, with plenty of Zombies easter eggs to find in the form of audio messages left by NPCs that give more insight into the ongoing story.

Before you can listen to these secrets in their entirety, you should ensure that listening to them won’t get you killed by a zombie shuffling towards your location. Therefore, we highly recommend you check out the Vanguard Zombies perks guide for a list of these powerful power-ups, as well as our Vanguard Zombies artifacts and abilities and Call of Duty Vanguard guns for details on what you should put in your loadout.

Of course, knowing where these easter eggs are in the first place is most of the challenge, so to make it as easy as possible for you, we’ve listed all of the currently known locations for Vanguard Zombies easter eggs. These easter eggs currently include all of the radios that Gabriel Krafft broadcasts from, the intel gathered on Von List and Kornifex, and some runes connected to the other Dark Aether entities.

Vanguard Zombies easter egg locations

There are three kinds of easter eggs in Call of Duty Vanguard Zombies: radios, intel, and runes. Radios look like 40s style radios, and the runes are stone slabs with text on them, so they should be easy to spot. The intel, on the other hand, might not be so obvious to find at first glance. They’re large black boxes with dials on the front face, a bit like a hi-fi system.

To find these Zombies easter eggs, you need to head to the specific point in a named area (shown at the top of the screen) and interact with the radio, intel, or rune to activate the easter egg. Of course, you do need to fend off any oncoming zombies to listen to the entire message.
