Halo 5: Guardians was launched again in 2015. But it was only some days in the past that lastly, after six years, gamers discovered a secret race involving mongoose four-wheelers. All it took to seek out this Easter egg was a bit of assist from the developer who added it to the sport.
On Easter Sunday, recreation developer Jan Willem Nijman posted a tweet asking fellow devs to share Easter eggs that they had hidden in video games. The tweet went semi-viral and a bunch of oldsters shared all kinds of cool secrets and techniques that that they had buried in numerous video games.

The winner of the race even will get a heavy weapon. This caught the eye of the Halo neighborhood and shortly gamers went looking for this undiscovered secret.
Various Halo YouTubers and secret hunters started looking the complete stage for any hidden switches, sounds, and so on. But even with the mixed effort of so many Halo consultants and followers, no one discovered the key after the primary day. The following day, on April 5, Wren shared a brief poem providing secret hunters some hints.
With this new data, Halo content material creators like RocketSloth and Ducain23 began up a stream and performed collectively looking for the key. At this level, the perfect idea that they had was that they would want to face in entrance of a sure gate within the map for 117 seconds. (This is the Master Chief’s quantity designation, which the poem gave the impression to be referencing.) But this didn’t work. However, Wren really was watching the stream and joined into the chat, giving a couple of additional hints and letting them know that their idea was proper, however they wanted to maneuver sooner.
Finally, after some additional hints and almost two days of looking, Halo 5’s hidden mongoose race was activated. Lik Wren defined in his first tweet that began all of this, the winner does in actual fact get a heavy weapon. Another fascinating factor is that every one the enemies despawn within the stage if you activate this secret.
