Some Easter eggs and secrets aren’t actually that hard to find. Sometimes they are even connected to achievements or trophies in-game, making them very easy to locate. But some secrets are much harder to find and honestly make me wonder how anyone ever finds these things.
One of my favorite discoveries they showcased in the video is a hidden weapon found in Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway. The secret gun is actually not a gun, but a cat that shoots laser or plasma orbs. Finding this Easter egg is not easy and involves shooting precise spots of a level in a certain order. None of these spots are marked and there is no indication that you are hitting them correctly.
How anyone found this is beyond me. It makes me want to load up some old games and shoot everything around me in different patterns. Who knows, maybe buried in some old shooter from the early 2000s is a hidden dog that shoots fire?
Princess Peach is powerful and not to be messed with in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. But I never expected that she was secretly carrying an assault rifle. Yet that’s what fans found when they dug around the files of Brawl.
YouTuber Oddheader recently released a video showcasing some secrets in video games that players and fans were never meant to find. Yet people found these secrets anyways because people have too much free time, I guess. Like the assault rifle in Brawl. It is a small icon that can be found in the game files for Peach. It is never used in the game, but I like to think Peach has it just in case. She is fighting people like Solid Snake and a giant monkey. Having a gun might be useful.
Another odd discovery is some hidden animations in Halo 2 featuring the Master Chief flipping off the camera while holding dual SMGs. That Master Chief fella is such a grumpy soldier.
The full video has more secrets that players have found. I wonder how many developers see stuff like this and suddenly realize that secret mistake or code they left in one of their old games might not be as hidden as they thought.
I love mysterious Easter Eggs and weird secrets in video games. So does YouTuber Oddheader, who put together a great video showcasing some lesser-known and more obscure secrets and discoveries.
Maybe the most interesting secret seen in the video involves a strange cube that a speedrunner encountered in Gex Enter The Gecko. All six sides of the cube show the same image, which looks like two people dressed up as characters from the Speed Racer cartoon.
Unfortunately, speedrunner NanchiSR was busy trying to finish their run and didn’t stop to investigate the cube. It is believed to be the first time this cube has been found in the game, though other players have discovered other cubes in the game.
A more creepy secret was found in Lost Planet 3. Behind a specific wall of ice in a cave, players found a pair of red glowing eyes. Nobody is sure why these eyes are here or if there is any more to this scary little secret.
The full video is worth watching as Oddheader shares more secrets and mysteries from games like Pokemon and Assassin’s Creed. This is part two, his original video has even more secrets you might not know about.
