Here’s how to complete the Chess Board Easter Egg and find the missing Knight in Warzone:

Warzone Vondead Chess Board Easter Egg Walkthrough

To complete the Vondead Chess Board Easter Egg, you must enter Zombie Royale or Resurgence on the Vondead map. From there, you have to:

  1. Land at the chess board in the bottom right of the map. It is in between the Stadium, Museum, and Exhibit.
    • Completing this challenge can be extremely tough as you play Battle Royale. It is likely players will attempt to eliminate you from the match.
    • We recommend playing Resurgence, as you will have the chance to respawn. Additionally, for the best chance at completing this Easter Egg, you should attempt it in matches where the chess board is far from the next zone.
Vondead Chess Board Easter Egg Location
  1. You will notice the Knight is missing on the black side of the board. You must find it and bring it back.
  2. There are 4 locations where the Knight has been found.
    1. North of the chess board, in the far right corner beside the Stadsbus stop.
    2. By the bridge towards the front entrance of the Museum. Drop down to the right of the bridge, and it will be in the corner.
    3. If not in spot 2, turn around, and it may be to the right of the red canopy in front of you.
    4. Take the bridge to the entrance of the Museum and turn left. Turn right when you reach the stairs and follow the path under the roof of the Museum to find the piece in the corner.
