Dragon Orbs in Die Rise (Maxis Easter Egg Step) - Call of Duty, Black Ops 2, Zombies
In order to complete the Maxis side of High Maintenance (Die Rise Easter Egg) you must find, obtain, charge, and use the Dragon Orbs. This is the longest step of this Easter Egg, but none of the tasks are very difficult.
Needed To Complete This Step:
- Upgraded Ballistic Knife
- Trampo Steam
- Completed the Elevator Step
- Completed the Floor Symbols Step
The Dragon Orb Steps:
- Shoot the Dragon Orbs
- Pick up the Dragon Orbs
- Kill zombies in the Buddha Room
- Shoot the Buddha with a knife
- Place Trampo Steams on the Dragon Symbols
- Place orbs on Trampo Steam
Shoot The Dragon Orbs
After completing the Floor Symbol step Maxis will say "You must look for objects of steel, with the appropriate weapon their energy field will..."
The 'objects of steel' are the Dragon Orbs and the 'appropriate weapon' is the SVU.
The Steps for Moving The Dragon Orbs:
- Buy the SVU.
- Locate The Dragon Orbs
- Shoot The Dragon Orbs with the SVU
If you do not already have the SVU, you will need to buy it off the wall. It is located in the second floor of the Spawn Building, on the wall above the stairs that lead to the Chinese Restaurant.
The Dragon Orbs are in the mouths of the large green dragons on the Roof. You can easily see them when looking through the scope of the SVU.
When you shoot the the first Dragon Ball with the SVU Maxis will say, "Its working the Sphere has relocated, now one more must be found"
When you shoot the second Dragon Ball Maxis will say, "The Energy in the Spheres is in flux, fear not, you will need them in due course."
Pick Up The Dragon Orbs
The Dragon Orbs moved after you shot them with the SVU. There are now in the original Spawn Room. Look at the Dragon Statues on each side of the door. The statues will have the Dragon Balls under one of their claws.
As you approach the Dragon Statue an onscreen indicator will appear, allowing you to press your action button in order to pick up the Dragon Ball.
Tips For Picking Up The Dragon Orbs:
- The players that pick up the orbs will need to kill zombies in the next step.
- One of the players that picks up the orbs will need to have the upgraded Ballistic Knives for the next step.
- You can put the Dragon Orb back if you decide that another player should pick it up.
Kill Zombies In The Buddha Room
The players with the Dragon Orbs will now need to go to the Buddha Room and kill zombies. In order for this to work they will each need to stand in front of one of the two Buddha Statues in the Buddha Room.
This will only take a round or two. You will hear Maxis talk when the step is complete.
Shoot The Statue With A Knife
After killing enough zombies for Maxis to talk, the player with the upgraded Ballistic Knives can turn around and shoot the statue with a knife.
As soon as this is done Maxis will say "Ah Yes, you see, the energy of the appropriate souls has been released. The energy fields remain in flux, matter must be transformed before it can be contained. The spire must be energized by fire and light, play the field in which you bite."
Note: Many guides and videos will claim that you need to revive Samuel in order to complete this step. However, that is not true. All you need to do is shoot the knife into the statue.
Place Trampo Steams On The Dragon Symbols
The only way to realign the energy field is to have the Dragon Orbs collide in mid air above the tower. You will use your Trampo Steams to do this. The Dragon Symbols indicate the place where the Trampo Steams need to be placed in order for this to happen.
The Dragon Symbol Steps:
- Find The Dragon Symbols
- Each player places a Trampo Steam on a Dragon Symbol.
- Place your Dragon Orbs on Trampo Steams.
Dragon Symbol Locations:
There are four Dragon Symbols on the map. Two are on the Roof and two are in the Spawn Building.
Dragon Symbol Location 1:
There is a Dragon Symbol in original spawn room. It is near one the Dragon Statues. It can be difficult to fins, since it is partially covered by rocks and dirt.
Dragon Symbol Location 2:
The second location is one floor below the original spawn room. It is beside the Stairs that lead from the top to the second floor of the Spawn Building.
Dragon Symbol Location 3:
Another Dragon Symbol can be found in Dead Man's Corner. Is on the roof level of dead man's corner.
Dragon Symbol Location 4:
Finally, we will find a symbol on the Roof, by the double elevators.
Placing Trampo Steams on the Dragon Symbols
Each player should bring their Trampo Steam to a Symbol and place it, facing the tower. This should be done all at the same time. Make sure to protect your Trampo Steam from zombies. The two players that are holding Dragon Balls should be either both in the Spawn Building, or both in the Power Building.
Place Dragon Balls On Trampo Steams
Maxis will talk as soon as all of the Trampo Steams have been placed. The players with the Dragon Balls should place their balls on the Trampo Steam, so that they will cross in mid air. Placing an orb on each Trampo Steam in the Spawn or Power building will cause them to do.
- Maxis will talk.
- More fireworks on the dragon.
- The Tower Corners will glow Red (looks orange).
