Venerated Warrior is the easter egg achievement/trophy for the map IX, which the Chaos Story characters must summon and face off against the Venerated Warrior.

Step 1: Blood Must Flow[edit | edit source]

The first step is to unlock the Pack-a-Punch. Then the player can continue the rest of the Easter Egg. From the Arena, open Danu Tower and take the stairs up to the Danu Altar Room. (The player(s) can choose either Danu or Ra to begin) After reaching the top of the stairs, turn to the immediate left, toward the rebuildable barrier window. To the left of the window is a Gong. Walk over to the Gong and press the use button. This will summon a Champion(s) for the player(s) to challenge. Defeat the Champion(s), walk over the floating head to pick it up, and then the player(s) will need to make their way over to the Ra Altar Room. They need to find the Gong, activate it and summon the next Champion(s). Rinse and repeat for Zeus Tower and Odin Tower. The player(s) will need to make their way to the Temple and place all 4 of the heads on the pikes in front of the Pack-a-Punch altar. This will unlock the Pack-a-Punch. During this time, be sure to build the Brazen Bull Shield.

Step 2[edit | edit source]

Find a skull with symbol in the Temple. While looking at it, activate your special weapon and interact with the skull. It will pop out and then interact with it to pick it up. Skull Locations. Get the Death of Orion and place skull in a grinder found in Flooded Crypt. Shoot 3 times with a full charged shot of the Death Of Orion/Serket's Kiss. Once it has been shot 3 times the skull should be grinded and at the dispenser of the grinder there should be bone mesh available to pick up. Bring an Axe Throwing Gladiator to the arena and have them throw an axe at one of the 2 pyres doing so drops a piece of wood that can be picked up and placed in the large cauldron in the lowest floor of Odin's tower. After 2 full rounds you can pick it back up. Acquire poop. Poop is received from crowd when you have maximum bad affinity (a full thumbs down). This can easily be achieved by throwing 3 grenades at the crowd or by running through the fire. Poop will be on the ground and when running over it to pick it up you will lose 250 points.

Step 3[edit | edit source]

Place the bone mesh, poop, and charcoal in a bowl in the Bottom floor of the Zeus Tower. After 2 full rounds, retrieve the fertilizer and place it between two trees in the Danu Tower: Arboretum. After 2 full rounds, the fertilizer will begin to smoke green. Use a PaP'd gun with the Fire Bomb Re-Pack effect and kill an enemy with Fire Bomb over the fertilizer, blue cracks will spawn in the floor under the poop. Have all players stand on the cracked floor for about 15 seconds and you will then be moved to a black and white version of the Danu tower. Here you must survive and shoot three red pods on the tree in the bottom floor. Once you have popped the 3 pods there will be a Max Ammo given to you and you must proceed up to the next floor. There are three red pods for each floor, once finished you will be teleported out.

Step 4[edit | edit source]

Around the map bull symbols will appear you can set on fire using the shield's firing effect, after each symbol a Gladiator zombie will appear in spawn you can kill to have soul be absorbed by the Ra statue. Shoot 4 of these bull symbols. Possible symbol locations:

  • Flooded Crypt
  • Wall near bridge between Zeus and Odin
  • Danu Tunnel
  • Odin-Zeus Temple Entrance
  • The Pit
  • Temple
  • Ra Tower: Burial Chamber
  • Arena
  • Danu Altar Room

Once all the champions are slain the obelisk at Ra Altar Room will have a symbol on it everyone in game needs to hold the square on the symbol. Everyone will be teleported into an alternate version of the Ra tower watch on the obelisk for which symbols flash these symbols determine which special zombies you have to kill in order to complete the challenge. If you kill a special enemy out of order you must try again. Repeat this process one more time successfully and you have completed the challenge.

Step 5[edit | edit source]

Have all players go in the middle of the Arena and interact with the stone in the middle. They will all be teleported down into the underground. Shoot 4 poles underground until they raise up out of the ground. Pole locations:

  • The Collapsed Tunnel
  • Odin Tunnel
  • Danu Tunnel
  • Cursed Room

Have everyone go up to the Arena and there will be electrical circles in 4 corners of the Arena. You must now shock enemies using Kill-O-Watt re-pack effect and when they are stunned you must kill them in order for the electricity to be transferred up into the poles above. When you've charged the poles enough there will be orbs in the challenge bowls in the middle of the Arena. Have every player interact with one of the orbs. Once all of the orbs are activated you will be given an unlimited specialist weapon. Gladiators will start spawning. Kill them all and survive to get to complete this step.

Step 6[edit | edit source]

Nine blue symbols will spawn in the underpart of the map. Shoot the following symbols at these specific angles to get all of the symbols to glow. When you shoot them correctly the symbols will stay blue forever.

  • The Pit
  • Danu Tunnel
  • The Crypts

Have everyone stand behind metal grate in the back of The Pit for about 20 seconds. There will be a gear noise when everyone has stood on it. When done correctly every player will be teleported into a special version of a room and you will be forced to kill multiple waves of zombies and special enemies. When you have finally killed multiple Blightfathers and picked up a key now at the top of the grate you will be done the challenge.

Step 7: Boss Fight[edit | edit source]

In the Arena there will be a red portal across from where you originally spawn into the map. Have all players interact with it in order to be teleported to the Boss Fight.

Phase 1: Waves of Tigers and numerous Gladiator zombies will come at you, you must kill them.

Phase 2: After all the Gladiators and Tigers have been defeated the Fury Elephant will come into the map out of a huge gate. Shoot the side armor off of Fury in order to destroy it. When her armor is destroyed you must shoot Fury in the face until it dies.

Phase 3: After Fury is defeated you will hear numerous audio quotes. After some time the black Wrath Elephant will spawn out of the other huge gate. Kill Wrath the same way in order to complete the boss fight and have the cutscene play.
