Ghost Recon Wildlands - Witch Easter Egg
First it was the Yeti Easter egg. Now, it’s witches. Here’s what we know so far.
Details have been emerging regarding the existence of a new Witch Easter Egg in Ghost Recon Wildlands, and players are already on the hunt for clues. For the lack of a better name, we’ll refer to this as the Witch Easter Egg for now, though some refer to it as the "Three Witches" Easter Egg as well. This guide will cover all the details we know about the Witch Easter Egg in Ghost Recon Wildlands so far and how you can find it for yourself.
Ghost Recon Wildlands players have gotten used to looking for hidden secrets throughout the world. What sparked these Easter egg hunts was the rumor of a supposed Yeti wandering the snowy mountains, which turned out to be a sniper named El Yeti who wears a white Yeti ghillie suit instead. During their search for the mysterious Yeti, players also discovered the locations for various Totem Statues that may or may not be tied to a bigger Easter egg as well.
Ghost Recon Wildlands - 3 Witches Easter Egg
The search for the Witch Easter Egg started several months ago, when players discovered a strange market in the Libertad province called Pa Kollu, where spiritual items are sold. Just beyond this market is a hut labelled as “La Guarida de Tres Brujas”, which roughly translates to “The Three Witches Den”. The description for this hut mentions three witches that lived there before they disappeared. Creepy, but not much of an Easter Egg just yet.
What really tipped off players to the existence of a potential Witch Easter Egg was a curious clue mentioned in the Audio section of the recent Ghost Recon Wildlands Title Update 5 patch notes:
“An unusual noise was heard near a ruined hut…”
For players who were already familiar with the Pa Kollu market in Libertad, this seemed like an obvious reference to that witch hut found just past the graveyard outside the market. When you go to investigate the hut, you’ll find some strange things:
- The isolated hut has crows circling overhead.
- Approach the hut, and you’ll hear mysterious voices whispering something.
- There’s a stack of rocks sitting out front, similar to the stacks found with the Totem Statues.
- Inside, there’s a shrine with a pig’s head on top, as well as a burnt body on a stake surrounded by the remains of corpses.
To add to the creep factor, players can also interact with a dried llama fetus that hangs outside a building in the Pa Kollu market. Upon interacting with the llama fetus, your crew will inform you that locals believe the fetus protects from evil spirits. Perhaps they were protecting themselves from whatever was going on in that corpse-filled hut.
That’s all the clues we have for now. We will continue to update this guide as we learn more about the Witch Easter Egg in Ghost Recon Wildlands.
