How to find the Dark Souls Easter egg in Battlefield 1’s Rupture map

A Dark Souls-style bonfire await those who venture out of bounds in Battlefield 1.

Much of the content in Battlefield 1‘s upcoming expansion, They Shall Not Pass, is currently available in the game’s CTE for participants to test.

It’s thanks to this update that we got our first look at the new maps, a few of the weapons, and more. But there are actually a couple of hidden Easter eggs in there too for those perceptive few among us.

In the video above, Westie shows you how to get to the Dark Souls Easter egg on the map Rupture. There’s a sword stuck in a Dark Souls-style bonfire that you can pick up and use in the level.

The sword is located just past the out of bounds line near the C point on Conquest. If you pull it out, you can use it as a melee weapon and it stays with you until you die. Only one of these can be active at a time.

The sword functions the same way you expect the Cavalry sword would: a competent melee weapon. Sadly, it looks more like some of the swords available in Battlefield 1 than the ones you’ll find in Dark Souls.

Of course, there’s a chance the sword’s location will change come launch. The rest of the video features gameplay using the new Lebel 1886 rifle and Mle 1903 pistol.

This is not the first Easter egg the community managed to find in They Shall Not Pass maps, either. Most recently, what sounded like zombie growls were heard from behind a particular door on the map Fort de Vaux.
