Battlefield easter eggs tend to snowball into larger secrets. Strange Morse code messages in Battlefield 1 originally led to hidden dogtags, and having those dogtags eventually allowed players to access a dangerous gas-filled maze. Successfully navigating that maze led player to find a special revolver. Similarly, a hunt to find a giant shark on one level shifted into a months-long unraveling of secret codes that culminated in a locked door opening. The room had leaking pipes dripping water in Morse code. Decoding that revealed the announcement date for Battlefield V. Climbing these stairs in Battlefield V leads to headphones that allow players to hear yet another Morse code message. That message hasn’t been decoded yet.


Battlefield V has slowly expanded since its launch in November 2018 with new maps and story missions but it hasn’t quite had as many huge easter eggs as its predecessor. With new discoveries finally offering challenges and mysteries that tease further secrets, Battlefield V comes closer to the silliness of previous games. What comes next? Godzilla monsters? An alien ray-gun? Dinner for two at New York’s finest restaurant? Only time will tell. Until then, players will simply keep climbing that stairway to Heaven.
