To unlock this, first play through Act 4 Chapter 1 on Insane. This means that you must have completed the game once already, or you?ll need to play coop with someone who has completed the game once.Go through Act 1 without touching any of the ash bodies. Doing so will get you the secret ?Respect For the Dead? Achievement once you arrive at Griffin?s Hideout and enter his secret weapon stash. More importantly though, it will give you access to this little chicken to the right with a pirate hat. Press X to interact with the chicken to cause it to explode, as if to officially kick off our easter egg hunt. Afterward, play through Act 4 Chapter 2 like normal. Simply make sure that you find two special ammo boxes that fall off a cliff as you approach them. The first one can be found at the start of the act on top of a car. The second can be found at the end of a railroad track in the underground section where you?re attacked by Polyps. Then proceed playing as normal until you reach Act 4 Chapter 3. After you head past the lift and go through the barbed wire, you?ll come to a fight with a bunch of Formers. Make sure to take them all out and then look for a stack of objects with another ammo box on top. Kick the stack to cause the ammo box to fall. Wait for a second and you?ll spot your ?air support?, which is one Cluckshot for every member of your party!Mad World easter egg Gridlock:Play a match with at least 2 round wins required to complete a match and go a whole round without destroying any of the “ash people” within the multiplayer map. (This includes everyone playing, not just you) The next round, an instrumental piano version of “Mad World” will play for about 50 seconds at the start of the round.Dom’s Beard easter egg:This trick makes every character in the game have Dom’s beard, during gameplay and cut-scenes. Start a new game on Insane and stick near Dom when the flashback starts, though you may need to walk away from him for a bit to get him to move at first. You’ll know you’re doing it right when he says “Yo” but you still need to stay near Dom for the entire flashback. It’s okay to fight the Locust though, just be sure you’re near Dom while you do it. When the flashback ends, if you did it right, everyone will have Dom’s beard on them for the rest of the game.Big Golden Chicken easter egg:On “Chapter 1 – Act ” you will come across four giant tubes just after raising the landing pad on top deck. After getting rid of all the enemies around the area, whatever player is playing as Marcus will need to step in front of one of the pipe openings. Stare down the opening until Marcus says “hello”, then repeat the same thing for the other three tubes. After saying “hello” down all four tubes, a small, harmless chicken will pop out. If you deal some significant damage to the little chicken, the chicken will then become a huge, golden, enraged, fire-breathing chicken (a.k.a. Lambent Chicken). If you deal more significant damage to the Lambent Chicken, it will then blow up into confetti and end with a funny quote by Marcus.Achievements:ACHIEVEMENT – HOW TO UNLOCKMarcus, It’s Your Father (5 points) – You woke up from a bad dream.
