Ghosts: Nemesis DLC – Temple of Doom’s Short Round Easter Egg
With the final Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC landing soon, enterprising early-access players have dug up some interesting Easter eggs tucked away in the latest round of maps. This time it was Youtube player chaosXsilencer stepping up to the plate to discover something cool in the Goldrush map.
Fans of Indiana Jones should remember his second big-screen debut’s explosive minecart sequence. Well, there are tons of minecarts to dodge and ride in Goldrush, but one of these contains something extra.
Delve into the vanilla campaign with GameFront as we tackle a full playthrough in our Call of Duty: Ghosts video walkthrough, or see what other secrets are hidden away in Activision’s blockbuster series on the CoD: Ghosts cheats list.
Temple of Doom’s Short Round Easter Egg
The Goldrush map, included in Call of Duty: Ghosts’s Nemesis DLC pack is full of speeding minecarts. Some of the tracks look awfully similar to the lanes made famous in Spielberg’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. But, that isn’t the Easter egg — even if you can ride the carts too.
In one of the over-turned carts, eagle-eyed participants might spot a familiar blue and white cap.
Let’s take a look at Indiana’s Jones pant-sized companion for comparison.
Looks the same to us. In the intervening years, Short Round’s switched fandoms, moving from the New York Yankees to something new. It could be the San Diego Padres — California being one of the major battlegrounds of Ghost’s campaign plot.
Or it could just be an imitation Japanese SD logo Baseball Cop so Activision doesn’t pay royalties. Whichever sounds more plausible.
