CoD Player Finally Beats Shadows Of Evil - Using A Piano

Call of Duty fans are dedicated, this much we know - but the fanbase for its iconic Zombies mode is one of the most passionate in the gaming world.

Players of the undead mode are remarkably demanding of Call of Duty developers, but in return, they keep coming back to the games that offer the zombie-slaughtering goodness and keep the titles active for years after Call of Duty themselves have moved on.

Not only are they dedicated to the mode itself, but to their own challenges. After many years, one player has beaten a Zombies map’s easter egg… using a piano.

CoD Fan Beats Shadows Of Evil Easter Egg With A Piano

This player has spent years refining his craft, as he has finally beaten the easter egg in the Shadows of Evil Zombies map. Reddit user grooviehoovie revealed the achievement in the Call of Duty subreddit. Giving themself the strict timeframe of under an hour, they made it even harder by arming themselves with a piano instead of a controller.

The video shows the OP sliding and dashing around the final room of the map, with the Pack-A-Punch machine. The Shadows of Evil Easter egg is notoriously hard in the CoD community, so there's something especially satisfying about finishing off the final boss while the discordant piano sounds off in the background.

How Can You Use A Piano As A Controller?

Grooviehoovie has revealed in the comments of his video how exactly he was able to put his piano to work as a controller. "I use a program called Bome MIDI Translator to convert my piano inputs to the keyboard inputs used in CoD", he says.

To be perfectly honest, playing Call of Duty on a piano must be pretty similar to playing on a keyboard, just with a very different layout - so if you wanted to give the game a spin with your home piano you now have the chance.

We've previously covered someone's labour of love to complete Demon's Souls with a pair of Donkey Konga bongos. There was also another impressive CoD trick where another earned a five-kill streak using a drumkit. The Shadows of Evil achievement is one that must have taken forever, and it may well be the first world record for the map played on a piano. Who knows - maybe you could beat it?
