- — Lee Ross on Director's Cut
Once the player has completed all five easter eggs, they will be awarded with Director's Cut upon inserting all five Soul Keys into the Soul Jar inside the projector room upon completing The End?, which as described by Lee Ross, is a whole new way to experience the Zombies mode. Upon starting a match with Director's Cut on, the player will be given several special rewards, such as all of the Candy Perks permanently in the respective map being given to the player and various other things. It also changes the map's respective easter egg slightly, and each time the player re-completes a map's easter egg on Director's Cut, they will be rewarded with a special calling card upon picking up a piece of the Talisman, which appears once the map's respective Soul Key has been picked up.
The player can toggle Director's Cut (using R1 on Playstation 4 and RB on Xbox One) on or off in the lobby menu once available if they so choose to.
