COD Ghosts Extinction Mode – Easter Egg “Golden Aliens” Tutorial (Video)

A unique easter egg has been found within the Call Of Duty Ghosts video game when playing in Extinction mode. YouTuber “Ali-A” was the first to introduce the easter egg to the gaming community via the YouTube video embedded above. By unlocking this easter egg you gain a temporary ability that causes small golden alien dolls to explode from within every alien corpse that you and your teammates kill. Sure, it isn't as cool as previous easter eggs found within the zombie modes of earlier COD titles, but is a neat little extra that the Ghosts developers threw in for hardcore fans.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial on the easiest way to unlock the “Golden Aliens” easter egg:

  1. Start a game of Extinction
  2. Destroy the first hive or two until you build up $1500 in cash
  3. Leave the drill in a stationary position (not mounted on a hive)
  4. Climb on top of the hill and buy the VKS sniper rifle ($1500)
  5. Run over to the “Gil's Lodge Motel” sign and shoot out the word “LOL”
  6. If done correctly, you'll see the word “LOL” appear in the middle of your screen (may take a few tries)
  7. At this point, the easter egg is enabled and any aliens you kill will now explode into bouncing golden alien dolls.

Keep in mind this easter egg only works for a small period of time (around a minute and thirty seconds) and can be initiated multiple times per game of Extinction. Some gamers found that these golden aliens appear to be identical (minus the color) to an alien doll found within one of the rooms in the Black Ops 2 Nuketown 2025 zombie map.
