Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands Easter Eggs Guide
Surprisingly, Ubisoft didn’t include as many easter eggs in Ghost Recon: Wildlands as the fans would have thought and liked. The developer is known for putting lots of references to their other games in the newest titles, but this time the situation has changed.
However, there are still a few amusing occurrences in the massive world of Bolivia, and if you still haven’t seen them all, then here is a quick guide that will help you find all easter eggs in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
All “Don’t Press Me!” Easter Eggs Locations in Ghost Recon: Wildlands
There are four instances of the “Don’t Press Me!” button in total scattered around the deserted plains of Bolivia. The first one is located in Koani to the west of the dirt road -- when pressed it ignites a massive explosion in the mountains right in front of you.
The second one is located on the border of the province of La Cruz. You can fast travel to the rally point La Cruz Alpha and it will be just a bit north from there. This one launches four missiles that are actually heading right towards you, but on impact it’s just confetti, so nothing to be afraid of.
The third one is located in the center of the Pucara region. It can be spotted right at the base of the water dam, and if you get to press the button, the lovely fireworks start lighting up the sky above the dam. Try it out at night for a better effect.
The last button is hidden in Malca on the top of the hill that looks upon a statue of… Jesus Christ? No not really, for some reason the replica of the Rio de Janeiro famous Jesus statue stands in the middle of nowhere, and this little button sets it on fire… but only for a short time.
Dark Souls Easter Egg in Ghost Recon: Wildlands
There is a nifty little easter egg to Dark Souls in the northern part of the Caimanes region. It can be found right at the rally point Caimanes Bravo. Go up the hill to your right and you will see a huge sword stuck in the center of the bonfire.
Unfortunately, you can’t use it to fast travel between the regions just like in Dark Souls, but apparently, it was set near the actual rally point to signify the reference.
Totem Statues Easter Egg in Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Some of the most mysterious collectibles in the game are the ancient totem statues that look like they were left by the Bolivian ancestors. These totems can be found all over the map, and for now people have found seven of the eight possible statues.
These totems are located in the following provinces: Inca Camina (two statues), Malca, Libertad, Koani, San Mateo, and Villa Verde. It is still unknown what will happen when you gather all eight, but people speculate that it should either unlock an item or give tons of skill points.
The Matrix Easter Egg in Ghost Recon: Wildlands
When flying on a helicopter over the northern deserted part of the Koani region people have spotted a lonely chair resting on the crackled salt flats. It’s not just some usual chair, but the one Morpheus sat on in The Matrix, a sci-fi movie from 1999.
This references the scene when Neo was introduced to the Matrix, where the chair stood in the middle of white space, just like it is presented in the game. Well, you can’t sit on it or blow it up, as it’s just a dull object, but it’s well-designed and cannot reference anything else but The Matrix.
