Easter-eggs in Arrowhead

Recommended Posts

Please write funny stuff you spotted in the latest installment.

Here's a start, I got reported this by a friend who bought game online:

Click Credits in Arrowhead. There's an AAN news ticker below with interesting info, like US Government approved use of Mando Systems, about a coup d'etat on Duala, etc. ;) kudos to BIS for this "easter egg" ;)

Kristian (tnx man!) made the collage of the news ticket in credits, here ya go:

p.s. put campaign related stuff in spoiler tags!

That's pretty cool! :)

/Offtopic, when do you expect your new island Lingor to be out IceBreakR! Looks very good in the pic!

I think the best bit on that news ticker was the stock listings for BIS and CDM.

Also a nod to Eagle Wing was Ed Winters in Death From Above (hopefully don't need to have a spoiler for something you see at the briefing).

To quickly get back on topic: Lingor will probably be compatible with Arrowhead and won't require original A2 for play ;)

Another funny thing in OA: There's a town named Shahbaz and we have a squadbuddy with the same nick (also he's the author of Molatian Army). It will be funny to send him on recon to this town ;)

There is an airline called ÐЭРОШРОТ.

In Latin that's AEROSHROT.

'sh' sounds the same as 'Å¡' in Czech so AEROÅ ROT.

Translated to English: AEROJUNK.

Now that is one long winded easter egg. Kudos for working that out!

Well, the airplane is already listed as An-2 (Aeroshrot) in the editor, I just verified the writing on the frame itself. As for the rest I am Czech so no real deal there :D

BIS has a bit of a history of doing this. The PBX in ARMA 2 is manufactured by a company called ZAWADA.

Zawada => Závada => Malfunction ;)

Then there is the infamous Starobahno beer from ArmA :p

Actually, Roman Zawada was name of artist who created the boat.

In the main menu, when it's the cinematics of UAV's camera lasering the random vehicles, which are in the next destroyed with GBU, you can switch between black, white FLIR modes and nightvision with hitting the N key, and you can zoom in and out the camera with mouse wheel :)

And if you're lucky you will even see the hit of bomb in slow-motion ;)

Well, you think that's good - I depbo'd the missions_e.pbo and, to my surprise, found this in the images folder:

bis_planck_flag.jpg

BIS, you guys are awesome. No other developer cares about their fans this way. Thanks for honoring Planck.

^ that is awesome. I don't know what to call it but BIS has modeled some interesting looking foliage. I believe I have found a cannabis field just east of Bastam on the Takistani map.

Can't check it now, but if it's really weed:
