Rituals are a key feature of the zombies map Shadows of Evil in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The Achievement/Trophy The Beginning of the End alongside the map Easter Egg Apocalypse Averted both require the completion of all five rituals within the map.

 Preparations to Preform[edit | edit source]

In order to activate any of the Rituals on the map, there are specific items that are required. The main item of this is the Summoning Key which is located inside a crate placed on a truck in Easy Alley, accessed by attacking the crate in Beast form. With the Key it's possible to activate the four primary Ritual Sites however, each require an item that is tied to the sin that the player characters have committed. Activating the ritual by placing the item along with the Summoning Key on the altar at the site will cause Keepers to spawn in along side zombies with the second and fourth ritual summoning in a Margwa upon completion.

The Magician[edit | edit source]

The sacrifice given from Nero.

The Ritual site for The Magician is his apartment above Easy Street with his sacrifice being the "Laywer's Pen" which is located within a crate held by a crane just outside the entrance to Easy Street. The Beast is required to electrify the meter to cause the crane to swing into the map before dropping the crate, breaking it and revealing the Pen.

The Boxer[edit | edit source]

The sacrifice given from Floyd.

The Ritual site for The Boxer is The Anvil gym and boxing ring located in the Waterfront District with his sacrifice being the Championship Belt he yearned for which is hidden within a crate, dangling from a chain above the Waterfront District. The Beast can access the crate by grappling to the platform where it is held and swinging at it, which will knock it down to the ground below, revealing the Belt.

The Detective[edit | edit source]

The sacrifice given from Jack.

The Ritual site for The Detective is the Ruby Rabbit nightclub in the Canals District while his sacrifice is the Badge of his partner on the beat, hidden within a crate behind a locked grate in the canals. The Beast can break the box with melee and open the grate by shocking the volt meter hidden behind some brickwork with the Mark of the Beast painted on it. Doing so will open the grate up and allow the Badge to be picked up.

The Femme Fatale[edit | edit source]

The sacrifice given from Jessica.

The Ritual site for The Femme Fatale is The Black Lace Burlesque nightclub in the Footlight District with her sacrifice being the toupee of her Producer, located on the edge of a building in the walkways leading out into the Footlights District proper. The Beast can cross the gap to the building and knock the crate containing the toupee onto the ground below, breaking the crate and revealing the Toupee.

Completion of a Ritual will spawn in an alien parasite known as a Gateworm, with all four unlocking The Beginning of the End alongside the pathway in the Subway for continued aiding of the Shadowman.
