Locate the three Orbs around the map. Once located, throw a snowball to turn it blue. Then shoot it to return it to artifact Storage. Repeat for each orb. **Orbs are generally in the facility, spawn, lighthouse, or along the outside of the boat. Multiple orbs could be in a single area
Once all three Orbs are shot, return to Artifact Storage. Throw a snowball at each of the three Orbs again and shoot them. An audio clip will play.
Place seal on campfire in the Sunken Path and throw the Samantha’s Music Box onto campfire. An audio clip will play.
Obtain the Elemental Shard
Head to the hermit in lighthouse. He will give you two stones that must be placed by traps. (Key note: a hot stone and a cold stone must be placed, after you heat them up, place a hot stone down on center machine and then freeze it)
By boathouse, across from PAP. Place in squares on the ground (this one heats the stone)
In Decontamination room next to ice trap.(freezes stone)
2. Go to Human Infusion and place the stones into the machine. Pick up fuse and take it to bottom of lighthouse to metal door.
3. After fuse is placed, power needs to be given to the fuse. Shoot two sparkling red containers on opposite ends of facility with wunderwaffe(edge of map). Next Kill electric zombies at 3 power transformers. Locations:
By boathouse PAP
By MX9 wall by
Lighthouse station platform by broken railing door
Head back to metal door at bottom of lighthouse. Interact with door and obtain the Elemental Shard. Return shard to Artifact Storage red orb. (This part can sometimes be delayed/lagged up to 10 minutes causing you to take damage when you interact with the blood instead of it allowing you to place the device. Some steps to overcome the delay such as downing with aftertaste or using other elixers have been discussed in comments below. Will update if something concrete comes up or remove once patch is released)
Repeat the three orb step from earlier with snowballs. Once complete, take to campfire and throw music box. After audio cue, take device to the hermit.
Once device is given to the hermit, a lockdown will commence. Survive the required amount of time.
Locate key in icicle
Lighthouse Cove above door entering lighthouse
Lighthouse Station hanging off upper broken railing
Beach hanging above the cave entrance when going back to lighthouse
2- Insert icicle into pot in Forecastle. Allow to melt and then pick up key.

4) Once all souls are collected, take Vril device to hermit. He will give you a key to open chest by stairs. You may now pick up wonderweapon.
Charge Device at PAP Machines
1.After the lockdown, take the device to the Pack a punch to charge with souls (must interact with PAP to place device to charge)
You can PAP your weapon still in this portion. In order to do so, you must leave the device floating in front of the pap after it fills with souls. Then go to next machine without device in inventory. You now can PAP. After paping weapon, go back and grab device and continue with rest of PAP machines (this may be temporary, notify me in comments if it doesn’t work)
Order of PAP soul charge
2.Once all PAP locations are complete, return to artifact storage. Shoot orb and snowball the three yellow orbs to turn blue.
3. Take the device to the campfire and throw the music box on it again. This is the last audio quotes.
4. Load up on ammo, replace shield, and end round to get fresh elixirs. When ready, go to sun deck to be flung at Golden PaP. Place device in PaP. This will initiate “boss fight”.
Boss Fight and End Cut Scene
5. Once Boss fight starts, stay inside of red dome and move along with it as it goes across map. It will stop 3 times. Once max ammo is given, the dome will move again.
6. Boss fight ends in Human Infusion. Once dome completely closed, a white flash goes across screen. Return to hermit and give him the device, next you will go to the sundeck (by Golden Pap fling), Once Pablo ascends, go to the Forecastle of boat to start the ending cutscene.
My Recommendation (but use what’s best for you)
Weapons: papd wall weapon for ammo refills, wunderwaffe, and rocket launcher

Once three campfires have been filled with souls, navigate to human infusion and shoot the container with the glowing spleen in it. Hanging by an outer walkway. 4. Pick up spleen and carry it to the Hermit. After you zipline down, be sure to wait in the water to cool the spleen down. This will slow down the audible countdown ticks.

Obtain dynamite and clear upper walkway by facility.
Grab gearbox beside flinger and take it to the hermit. Retrieve from hermit after he fixes it.
Navigate back to flinger on upper walkway.
Get flung from three spots on the flinger( just stand on each of the yellow bars.
Once you land from the fling, it will break the wood that you land on. Pick up the parts from each of the three spots you break.
Once all three parts are obtained, navigate to a buildable table and craft heat Pack. Once crafted and picked up, you will notice a symbol by sheild indicating that heat pack is acquired.
Easter Egg Songs
1st song: “A Light from the Shore”- To start the easter egg song, you must interact with three objects located around the map. An alien sounding hum (best way I can describe it) can be heard when near them
bottom of the ice slide to the right
loading platform in the pile of snow by zipline platform
hidden path past maddox wall buy on the fence post at the end to the right
2nd Song: “Reflections”- Interact with the elemental shard door at the bottom of lighthouse, in the room below sheil buildable, multiple times.
3rd song: “The Aether Crew Song/ Campfire Song”- interact with the campfire in the sunken path a few times after you samantha music box it and the campfire song can be heard.
You can obtain the dynamite by killing fire zombies with either snowballs or damaging them in the icy water. After killing three fire zombies and collecting the three different parts, you can now craft dynamite at a buildable table.
There are two jump scare locations.
Aim down scope at piece of paper behind soup pot in the forecastle tip of boat
Aim down scope at the top of lighthouse
I will not tell you what they are, that is for you to find out
Salvation Lies Above- In Tag der Toten, Ascend from Darkness
Everybody Freeze!- In Tag der Toten, freeze 10 zombies at once in a single match

Secret- In Tag der Toten, find the secret (Must use the fling on the upper catwalk. A 100% effective method has not currently been found, but youtuber Invalid has discovered that doing a counter clockwise motion around the entire edge of fling 6 times with a teammate and then stopping with one person by gearbox and one behind him has a high percentage chance of sending one person to the secret area. Once landed you will swim through icy water. Be sure to have talking about regeneration or our special weapon charged in order to survive the swim.)
