As far back as easter egg hunting goes, it's still one of the most enticing treasure hunts we do when a new game is released. Especially in long-running franchises, spotting an easter egg evoking nostalgic references to previous games is a must-do.  Not surprisingly, COD diehard fans were just as eager to take out their magnifying glasses and hunt for easter eggs in Call of Duty Modern Warfare II, recently released on October 28, 2022, for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S platforms.

Care to find out which Easter eggs stand out the most, with an obvious spoiler alert warning? Let’s get the ball rolling.


5. Burger Town

Modern Warfare 2 Zombies Easter Egg Found! (COD MW2 Zombies / Modern Warfare II Zombies)

Call of Duty Warzone will always hold a special place in our hearts, so when content creator, Mr.DalekJD, spotted good ol’ Burger Town, well, spotting an out-of-place sign for the restaurant, at least, you just can’t help reminiscing about the first Modern Warfare 2 and how subtle the reference is. Specifically, in the mission, Wolverines, where you fight against a string of enemies from inside the very same Burger Town restaurant.

And the Burger Town restaurant from 2009’s Call of Duty doesn’t come to memory. There are plenty of other similar references popping up in other Call of Duty games, of course, always holding special significance because it’s always going to be Call of Duty’s own Burger Town no matter where it pops up.


4. Pvt. Ramirez


There are many references to the first, 2009’s Modern Warfare 2, including Pvt. Ramirez, who appears in 2009’s Modern Warfare 2 and reappears in 2022’s Modern Warfare 2. His first appearance is in the mission, Wolverines, fighting alongside Sergeant Foley and Corporal Dunn.

Of course, characters do make reappearances across long-running franchises. Case in point Task Force 141, led by the team leader, Captain Price, and his squad members, Gaz, Soap, and Ghost. 

But these are more obvious characters taking center stage in the overall plot. However, a character like Pvt. Ramirez is an unexpected twist that only diehard fans will likely spot from those many years ago.


3. The Verdansk FC Logo

The Verdansk map is a popular massive map in Call of Duty. It was the original featured map in Call of Duty Warzone and, later, in Modern Warfare as the main setting for Special Ops operations. 

You will find this easter egg just a few meters form the Burger Town resturant shop in Amsterdam streets. Here you will see a city bike shop where you'll spot tshirts hungf for sale. One of the t-shirts reference to the Verdansk Sparks’ blue football kit logo that is popular for signing Pogba (ish).

Of course, this reference could be but a far-fetched easter egg, but Call of Duty Warzone and later Modern Warfare being wildly popular for utilizing the Verdansk map, specifically the Verdansk stadium that had the same logo imprint, it does make you wonder how subtle of a hint this logo could be for what’s to come in Warzone 2.0.


2. Breaking Bad’s RV

Breaking Bad Easter Egg in COD Modern Warfare II

The blockbuster TV show, Breaking Bad, has had both direct and indirect influences on the gaming industry. This time, it’s the iconic RV from the pilot episode. Which went on to impact the future lives of Walter White and his co-cap, Jesse Pinkman.

While coursing through the Border Crossing map, you’ll spot an RV on the highway ridden with bullet holes and covered with tape. 

And surprise, surprise, it’s the same-looking, exact RV post the attack on Walter and Jesse. They managed to escape by poisoning their attackers with red phosphorus gas and locking them inside the RV. One of the attackers tried shooting his way out the door, leaving behind a bullet-hole-ridden RV, which Jesse later tried to cover with duct tape.


1. The Teddy Bear

Call of Duty’s famous teddy bear is no stranger to easter egg hunting, dating way back to 2004’s Call of Duty: Finest Hour. Since then, it’s become a hard-to-let-go habit for fans to track down the stuffed bear across the levels. Lucky finders always take it to social media to show off their keen eyes.

Sometimes, the teddy bear is hidden in plain sight. Other times, it takes quite a while to spot our stuffed friend. Regardless, most of the previous Call of Duty games have stayed true to the culture, leaving at least one teddy bear for gamers to find. 

This time, gamers lucky enough to get their hands on the pre-release campaign got a head start, and before long, a Reddit user posted, “I found a familiar looking teddy bear” image, kicking off the “teddy bear” moments from past games and calling off the hunt for some.


In 2022’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare II, the teddy bear is spotted on a shelf of what looks like a bullet hole-filled bedroom wall. The stuffed bear looks weary with stitches here and there, and it's leg falling out. And for the sake of adhering to its past buddies to a tee, you’ll see the same star etched over the teddy’s heart. 

If you look even closer, you’ll see yet another stuffed bear lying on the shelf too. And who knows, like in previous games, maybe picking one up will give you a health boost or better chances at a better weapon, like in some of the previous games, like Call of Duty: Zombies. Now wouldn’t that be cool?

Notable mentions: 

Riley from Ghosts Squadron returns as a toy dog, the iconic map, Rust, reappears within the map Taraq; iconic lines like, “What kind of a name is Soap?” are replicated across the franchise, and Prisoner “627,” which is the exact code also used by Price’s prisoner in 2009’s Modern Warfare 2
