Kahn (Bill Paxton) Security Badge - Outbreak 'Game Over Man' Easter Egg
Acquiring the security badge for Kahn, the executive, requires activating four keypads while infected. You can only become infected during the rounds that include infected zombies. Due to having the infected requirement, you will also need to activate all four keypads in a short amount of time.

All four keypads all located in the administration section, which is access by opening the door by Exo Medic. Part of this area is labeled overhead as the Security Center, which contains the decontamination station, which will be needed after the keypads have been activated.
Pictures marking the location of each keypad with orange arrows are included below. Select the images in order to see a larger picture, doing so will not bring you off this page.
The first keypad is in the same room as Exo Medic. It can be found between a door and the large window that has two openings like a bank teller's window. This keypad can be accessed without opening the door that leads into the Administration Area, and will be the first one you encounter if coming from the starting area.
If you continue moving in the same direction, the next keypad is located after the decontamination station. It will be against the wall to your left, between the stairs and a broken double door.
After the second keypad, you will see two doorways in front of you. The doorway to your right will lead past the bathrooms and into the small room that contains the Trash Chute. The third keypad is located on the far wall, to the left of a door.
The final keypad is located in the room directly after the Weapon Upgrade Station. This keypad is on the second floor, which can only be accessed by using the thrust ability on your Exo Suit. When standing with the Morgue door to your left and the decontamination station behind you, the keypad will be on the wall to your right. You should see a Credit Machine on the left side of this small walkway.
Retrieving Kahn's Security Badge
The security badge will appear in the Exo Medic room, inside the teller window that was described in the Keypad #1 section. If facing the window, the badge will be visible to the right of the left opening.
You do not need to remain infected in order to pick up this badge, but can use the decontamination station before retrieving it. To pick up the badge, approach it and press your action button.
Strategies for Surviving This Task
I finished this Easter Egg in a solo game, and have not attempted to do so in a multiplayer game. Some videos have suggested that all four players need to select one of these buttons when playing multiplayer, which could make it more complicated. I will need to attempt this in multiplayer to find out if one player can press all four.
Below are the steps for completing this task using the two methods that worked well for me playing solo.
The easiest way to complete this task is to use Camouflage from an Orbital Drop. If you have more than one Orbital Drop item, make sure the Camouflage is selected (you will not be able to see this when infected).
- Get infected by the bus and instantly press right on your d-pad, turning on your Camouflage.
- Run to each keypad in the order I described above, activating each one.
- After all four have been activated, go directly to the decontamination station and clean off.
- Kill the remaining zombies and pick up your badge between rounds.
One Zombie Method
If I do not have Camo, I will kill all but one infected zombie before attempting to activate the keypads. With this method, I will only have to dodge one zombie while I travel to each keypad. The steps are similar to those described above, with the exception of not activating camo.
