Under we have collected a bunch of easter eggs gamers have discovered to this point, and there are certain to be extra of them on the market. The place potential we have included data on the place you’ll find them your self. Should you stumble throughout any we have missed, tell us within the feedback. Pleased looking!
As hundreds of gamers started parkouring madly round Dying Mild 2, a lot of them began discovering curious artifacts right here and there within the type of evil rubber duckies. Choosing up one in all these spooky geese with glowing eyes resulted in a familiar-sounding roar that sounded nearly… demonic. Gamers shortly found out they should be the important thing to a puzzle.
Gamers started sharing data of their finds and dealing collectively to find extra evil duckies. As soon as all 5 geese are collected, they are often positioned on an altar within the basement of the VNC tower, accessible by the elevator. Energy traces will also be related throughout the room between transformers in a pentagram form, which unlocks to an enormous Doom easter egg: A shotgun, a pixelated recreation of Doom’s first stage, and a letter to Doom’s creators. Test it out within the video above. Clearly, designers at Techland are an enormous fan of the long-lasting FPS.
As soon as you’ve got completed the story mission known as Broadcast, you’ll simply attain the highest of the VNC tower by way of elevator. And that is helpful since a number of easter eggs are a lot simpler to get as soon as you’ll be able to leap off that tower and glide to the highest of different buildings. Within the video under, observe YouTuber Punish’s instance to glide to a skyscraper to the south west, after which to a different south of that. On the rooftop you will meet a personality known as The Liquidator.
This NPC will level you to a field the place you will discover the blueprints for Cyber Arms 2177, a bit nod to Cyberpunk 2077’s mantis blades which come out of your forearms for some slicing and dicing. The Dying Mild 2 model is not actually nice relating to dealing slashing injury (and prices a whopping 369 scrap to craft) although they do shock injury every time you land a strike.
Dying Mild 2 could observe the exploits of a brand new hero, however whereas the unique protagonist Kyle Crane is gone that does not imply he is forgotten. There’s an enormous Renegade settlement within the Decrease Dam Ayre district, and in case you look to the north east of the camp you will see an space coated yellow sludge. Dangling from a crane (get it?) above the muck is a storage container you’ll be able to attain with some cautious leaping or gliding.
Decide the lock on the door to the container, step inside and you will find a shrine to Jason Crane—pictures, drawings, and even an effigy product of cushions and a bucket. There is a tape recorder there, too, and in case you play it you’ll be able to take heed to recordings of the hero of Harran, in addition to different Dying Mild characters.
Should you’re in search of one other whole room filled with secrets and techniques, you are in luck. There is a secret developer room you’ll be able to acquire entry to by fixing a skyscraper puzzle you’ll be able to see within the video above, reachable as soon as once more by gliding from the highest of the VNC tower. Contained in the room is a shrine to Techland itself, together with posters for previous video games and a letter to followers thanking them for locating the key stash.
Discovering the developer room easter egg can unlock one more easter egg. Yep, Techland is hiding secrets and techniques inside secrets and techniques. The Left Finger of gloVa is a blueprint you’ll be able to acquire by sitting on the mattress within the developer room for a bit. First a bunch of teddy bears seem, adopted by the blueprint that, when crafted, allows you to blow away enemies just by pointing at them. It is one other costly one to craft, however properly value it. And when you’re within the developer room, do not forget to search out the Korek Charm, which may grant sturdiness to any weapon you mod with it.
Again to the Future
A hoverboard? Positive, why the heck not? There is a prolonged puzzle you will want to resolve first on the catherdral at St. Paul Island, and then you definately’ll have to gather a bunch of hoverboard elements scattered across the space. And even then you definately’ll solely have the ability to trip Marty McFly’s futuristic skateboard whereas finishing a couple of challenges, so you will not have the ability to use it wherever you need. Nonetheless, it is fairly cool.
Ode to a Mod
This one is simply candy. A longtime Dying Mild fan and subreddit moderator, GamerMom1969, was immortalized with an easter egg. When Dying Mild 2 was first introduced, Techland mentioned the weapons can be very DIY-looking. So GamerMom created a weapon idea that I would describe as “scissors on a stick.”
I am unsure if the weapon is definitely within the recreation or not, however there is a word you’ll find in Dying Mild 2 from somebody in search of as many scissors as she will be able to discover to create the Shear Chaos. There’s even a sketch. It is a actually nice nod to an enormous fan and essential member of the Dying Mild group.

Spike tickles the ivories
Earlier than you even get near town, there are a pair easter eggs you’ll find simply by stopping and hanging out. Should you stand nonetheless in the home you discover with Spike, he’ll ultimately sit down on the piano and play the theme to Dying Mild 2. Who knew Spike was so meta?
That very same home has a turntable displaying the report of Who Do You Voodoo, used within the Lifeless Island soundtrack. And in case you look carefully on the vista exterior, you’ll be able to nearly spot one other reference to Lifeless Island: the palm tree with a corpse hanging from it that shaped the Lifeless Island emblem.
