High Maintenance Achievement Guide


  • Required Items: Sliquifier, Sniper Rifle (SVD), Trample Steam, Galvaknuckles

Note: Completing this achievement requires 4 players.

  • Part 1: Turn on the power. Learn how to turn on the power quickly with our Die Rise: Power Guide. Once complete, you’ll hear a new audio clip.
  • Part 2: Find the glowing tiles. There are four tiles on the elevators spread across Die Rise. Stepping on these tiles will light them up. Find all four tiles, then have each teammate step onto the tiles at the same time.
  • Part 2 – Continued: This next part is tricky. There are three tiles that need to be activated. The tiles must be activated in order — this is trial and error. Work together with three players to try different combinations. You’ll hear a new audio clip if you get the combination right.
  • Part 3: Purchase the SVD and return to the spawn room. Aim for the orbs inside the dragon mouths and shoot each. Once shot, the orbs will appear under the lion statues in the same room.
  • Part 4: Acquire the Sliquifier, learn how with our Die Rise: Sliquifier Crafting Guide. Blast the orbs under the lion statues until they begin to turn in place. Keep doing so until another audio clip plays.
  • Part 5: Next, you’ll need to construct the Trample Steam. Spread out to four golden lion tile locations pointed at the radio tower up a ramp near the dragon sign on the power tower roof. Set up the launchers to fling zombies into the radio tower until the tower lights up around the base.
  • Part 6: Purchase the Galvaknuckles, then travel up the ramp to the radio tower’s base. There are four glowing sides of the tower you must melee to power the tower up. Keep hitting the blue lit edges until the radio tower sparks up.

Congratulations! You’ve completed the Richtofen Easter Egg for Die Rise.

Do you have to do the parts in order or can you do them as you go along?
