Black Ops Cold War Beta Extended
Today there was another series of easter eggs over on pawntakespawn. If you aren’t exactly up to date on what’s been going on, here’s a quick and bare-bones rundown. Pawntakespawn.com has been used for several ARG type easter eggs over the past few months. First of which was finding the first teaser trailer for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War!
The easter eggs have become harder and harder each time and included Activision or Treyarch actually mailing users who participated post cards! These post cards tied into a ZORK mini game on the website that has led to several other parts of the easter egg. Basically what you need to know is that this has been going on for a while and that Treyarch have been using the website and a set of alternate reality game themed easter eggs to reveal upcoming content and secrets for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
Today’s was the best step yet. Users received emails that led them back to pawntakespawn and onto the next steps. These included calling a real phone number and entering your personal access code, solving more ciphers, and going on to the Black Ops Cold War beta to find chess boards and more that were used to solve the puzzles.

In the end, GeekyPastimes and his community were able to solve the puzzle and unlock an extra day of the Black Ops Cold War beta for the entire Call of Duty community! If you are into easter eggs and watching them being solved live, GeekyPastimes is the man to follow. He has been the first in the world to complete several of these, and the Call of Duty community as a whole, including large youtubers such as NoahJ456 (happy birthday btw) MrDalekJD and more have relied on him to solve parts of their puzzles.
