How to complete the Witch's book easter egg and get the Witch's Stick SO-14 Weapon Blueprint

For an easter egg, the witch's book easter egg is relatively elementary, as long as you know what you need to do. 

To get started, begin a match of Vondead and head to the Graveyard. In the western corner of the POI, you will notice a mausoleum with a mysterious altar inside of it. Interact with the altar to summon the Witch's Stick.

Now, venture southeast to the cursed tower mill situated to the west of the Stadium. Enter the door at the base of the tower, and you should find the Witch's Stick SO-14 Weapon Blueprint in front of the chimney.

How to complete the chessboard's easter egg and get the Checkmate Weapon Charm

The chessboard's easter egg that awards the Checkmate Weapon Charm is a bit more in-depth than the witch's book easter egg. You can do this particular easter egg at the chessboard southwest of the Museum.

The chessboard is missing a black knight. Your objective is to find the lost piece and bring it back to the chessboard. Annoyingly, the knight can spawn in a few different locations, so tracking it down isn't always easy. To find it, search the immediate vicinity.

When you discover the missing knight, you'll quickly learn that it's being controlled by some sort of entity. When you get close to the black knight and glance at it, its eyes will turn devilishly red. And if you look away from the knight for a prolonged period, it will attack you and reset back to where you first found it.

To complete the easter egg, you must lure the black knight back to the chessboard. To do this, activate the knight and then slowly walk away from it, but don't let your eyes off of it for too long. Work your way back to the chessboard while continually peaking to make sure the knight is still following you and get it to position itself in the exact spot it belongs on the chessboard.

Do this correctly, and the knight's eyes will turn from red to green, and you will receive a notification that you completed the chessboard's easter egg, which unlocks the Checkmate Weapon Charm.

That's all the secret challenges and rewards available in Warzone: The Haunting. Complete these unlisted challenges before The Haunting ends to unlock some spooky and rather rare rewards!
