Easter Eggs in Ghost Recon Wildlands

23/05/2017 06:00 PM

Ghost Recon Wildlands contains many secrets for our players to uncover should they prove themselves cunning and adventurous.

As we explore the Easter Eggs in Wildlands, we consulted with our Lead FX Designer, Mathieu Martinet, to gather insight on a few of his favorites.

Don’t Press Me

Don't press

We knew the quickest way to get players to press something was to put a giant sign next that said the exact opposite. Mathieu had this to say on including these Easter Eggs:

“In my opinion, the ‘do not press me’ concept allows players to have fun, make choices and share these fun moments.

The idea was to create something unusual and unexpected in the Ghost Recon. When you see that kind of call to action, it’s really natural to be curious, to not follow the rule and see what happens. Unconsciously you know that something special will happen.”

The result may not be exactly what you expect from a large blue button with a sign next to it telling you not to press it. Head to the giant dam in Pucara to kick off your Easter Egg hunt with a bang!

Jericho

If you like your explosions a little bigger, you’ll find Mathieu’s favorite Easter Egg in the Salt Flats of Koani:

“My favorite [Easter Egg] is the huge explosion in Salt Flats of Koani. This is the essence of the ‘Don’t Press Me’ concept. There’s a lot more elaborate staging on this one in particular, which is why I like it the most.”

Rocket

The third button can be found on one of the hills in La Cruz. After you press this, don’t panic! You’ll be in for a pleasant surprise as long as you don’t look away.

Fire Muerte

The final button you definitely shouldn’t press resides in the province of Malca near one of the tallest statues in Wildlands, a tribute to the symbol of El Sueño’s cartel. Your Ghost won’t get scorched, though we can’t say the same for Santa Muerte.

The Chair

Chair

We’re heading back to the Salt Flats for one of our favorite Easter Eggs. In the northern part of the Koani region, you’ll find a chair that might look a little out of place in the stark white landscape.

Take the red pill and we’ll show you how deep the rabbit hole goes, Ghosts.

Hidden Statues

Stones

Scattered amongst the mountains, in the highest reaches, there are shrines to the goddess Pachamama. Hidden in 8 of these shrines you can find statues of the Earth Mother that you can pick up.

Once you gather all of them, the locals will gather to pay their respects to Pachamama at the shrines where the statues were located.

Mysterious Owl

Owl

In Libertad province, you can find many animals native to the area. We encourage you to look up every once and a while, as you might see a very special owl that reacts unexpectedly should you manage to hit it.

It’s time to test your marksmanship, Ghosts!


We hope you’ve enjoyed finding Easter Eggs in Ghost Recon Wildlands and you’re inspired to do some hunting to see them all yourself.

New secrets emerge from the Wildlands frequently, even those that were thought to be nothing more than myths from the unforgiving cold of the Andes mountains. Make sure you stay frosty, Ghosts, some of these legends may prove very real and far more dangerous than what you’ve faced before.
