Battlefield 4 just got an update, reactivating an old Easter egg, and fans believe that it's a Battlefield 6 hint.
Despite coming out in 2013, Battlefield 4 is still finding a way to be relevant. Not only does the game have an active player base to this day, it still looks great and plays exceptionally well.
But now, Battlefield 4 has a small update that appears to reactivate an older Easter egg. Not only will this allow players to see a Megalodon in-game, it also unlocks what was once a developer-only skin for those who accomplish it.
But why would Battlefield 4 be receiving such an unusual update so far into its lifespan? Of course, fans believe that it's got something to do with Battlefield 6.
How to Complete the Megalodon Easter Egg in Battlefield 4
To meet the Megalodon in Battlefield 4, and unlock an exclusive developer skin, players must follow these steps:
First, you'll need to load into a game of Paracel Storm on Conquest. Then, spawn in and make your way to the top of the wind turbine that's got a boat stuck near its base.
You'll need to find a helicopter or plane to get to the top of the turbine, then wait until there are only 400 tickets left on one team's scoreboard. From here, a storm will start to kick in, and eventually, your turbine will be struck by lightning.
After dying and respawning, head towards the E objective as fast as possible. Land on an island near the objective, and walk up the palm tree that has coconuts growing on it.
Wait here, and a glowing light will appear in the sea. Shoot the light, and a small explosion will occur.
Then just sit back and watch, as a strange UFO appears in the sky. The light will dive into the ocean, and a giant Megalodon will appear shortly afterward.
At this point, you can leave the server and find that you've unlocked the DICE employee exclusive skin.
Is the Easter Egg a Battlefield 6 Hint?
The fact that the Megalodon Easter egg is back after such a long time does seem pretty suspicious. But how it could connect to Battlefield 6, we're not quite sure.
Battlefield 4 footage is currently being used to tease Battlefield 6's reveal date over on a mysterious YouTube channel. Perhaps this has something to do with an upcoming video.

Recently, a big Battlefield 6 leaker has been suspended after revealing major information about the game. Of course, this only appears to confirm that the details he was leaking are true!
