The Megalodon in Battlefield 4 Naval Strike DLC is Real, Enormous

How to find the ancient monstrosity terrorizing the South China Sea.

Easter eggs in Battlefield 4 have spurred several game-wide excursions in the past. Finding the Yeti was the last big discovery, but the new Naval Strike DLC brings a much bigger hidden creature into the fold.

Jackfrags (see the above video) has video evidence of the Megalodon, a giant, prehistoric shark that uses humans as toothpicks. The Megalodon can be found on the island-filled BF4 map Nansha Strike, which is part of the recently-released Naval Strike DLC update.

To call the Megalodon from its home in the watery abyss, you must gather ten soldiers around a buoy (the above video uses the buoy between the A and B control point islands). Once ten are gathered, the Megalodon explodes out of the water, destroying all in its path (seriously, all the buoy-gathered perish in an instant).

If you're playing Naval Strike this weekend, try summoning the Megalodon with your friends, and post video up of the feat here in the forums. Happy hunting!

Now that is pretty awesome! Almost makes me feel bad about trading the game in now.

I want to see it from the point of view of the people in the water, this looks so cool. Great easter egg, can't wait to see more videos of it.

It's kinda funny how BF4 and Ghosts are now fighting for the wackiness factor. BF4 has a Megalodon, Ghosts has Micheal Myers and Predator. I actually kinda like it.

But this is really cool. I wish the T-rex was cooler on that one map.

Seconded. Also want to see it take out that helicopter.

It's actually somewhat harder to tell how enormous it is from the player POV. Either way... It's goddamn terrifying and hilarious.

Finally! I don't play Battlefield 4, probably not going to buy it till the "Premium" edition comes out, but I've been tracking its easter eggs because they're so fun to decrypt and solve. Glad the actual thing exists. Way better then the dino and yeti easter egg.

This is a pretty good shot from the players perspective:

It's a great Easter egg but if we can't also find a giant octopus then they pretty much wasted the best reference ever found in a game.

Just remember, Aliens: Colonial Marines did the weird in AAA FPS before both of them

At least there were clues to the Megalodon, and Jason/Predator are cool to shoot at. The donut is just WTF? O_o
