How to do the Coffin Dance Easter Egg in Black Ops Cold War Zombies

There are a few hidden Easter Eggs in Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode, and one of them might give you a good laugh. We’re talking about the Coffin Dance, based on the popular meme that spawned from Ghanaian pallbearers. Treyarch threw this Easter Egg in the game to give players a good laugh while they are grinding their way through hordes of zombies. Here’s how to do the Coffin Dance Easter Egg in Black Ops Cold War.

This in-game secret is an easy one to accomplish, but first, you’ll need to make sure you know how to turn on the power and assemble the Pack-a-Punch machine. Once you’ve done that, proceed with the guide.

Here’s how to do the Coffin Dance Easter Egg in Black Ops Cold War:

  • Turn on the power.
  • Assemble the Pack-a-Punch.
  • Destroy five glowing orbs in the Particle Accelerator room.

You can refer to our video guide here, as it may be a bit easier to follow along with than a written guide. 

After turning on the power and assembling the Pack-A-Punch machine, you will get sent into the Aether Realm. Stay in the particle accelerate room because the next step is to destroy five glowing orbs around the Particle Accelerator room.

Orb Location #1

If you are standing in the power room looking toward the Particle Accelerator and Pack-a-Punch machine, take a left down the stairs. You should see two computer terminals against the wall. Look between them, and the first glowing orb is behind a chair.

Orb Location #2

Next, turn around and go down one flight of steps. Look to your right alongside the wall, and you should see the second orb behind the top metal grate. You’ll need to crouch down and get an angle to shoot this one.

Orb Location #3

The next orb is directly under you on the lower level. Head down to the lower level, and look for the barricade where zombies spawn. Get yourself flush against the wall, and look toward the upper left-hand corner of the border. You should see the third globe in there.

Orb Location #4

The next orb is still on the lower level, but you need to make your way to the room’s northwest side. Head up the first flight of stairs, and hop off onto the metal structure beside the steps. Edge your way to the northeast corner, and you will see the next orb hidden in the crevice. 

Orb Location #5

The final orb is visible from the main floor of the Particle Accelerator room. Stand on top of the accelerator, and look to the northwest corner of the ceiling. You may need to inch closer in case you don’t have a long-range weapon. Destroy the final orb, and the teleportation sequence will begin.

You, and anyone else in your party, will get teleported to the front of the Pack-A-Punch machine for an epic Coffin Dance party. The zombie pallbearers slowly bring a crate full of goodies to the center of the platform.

When the scene is over, the chest drops to the ground, and you can open it up. The crate contains some Uncommon and Rare Salvage, a Juggernog, and a chance at a rare weapon (including the Ray Gun).
