What to expect from the Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies Egypt map

Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies is finally starting to get some love from fans of the older modes, as the release of a proper round-based map was exactly what the game needed. Shi No Numa Reborn not only puts the Wunderwaffe DG-2 in players’ hands once again, but includes some interesting side quests for players to complete. It also has a main quest that drops some bombs on the players.

During the main easter egg of Shi No Numa Reborn, Call of Duty: Vanguard Fans not only witness the return of Chaos Story items like the Sentinel Artifact, but also get confirmation that the final fight will take place inside Egypt. While Terra Maledicta already had a desert setting, it can be assumed that the latest map will be a bit more flashy, leaning on important Egyptian architecture and locations. It should also feature a proper final boss battle with Kortifex.

Pyramids, Chaos and the Library of Alexandria

Having Egypt-centric Zombies maps without the country’s pyramids seems unlikely, so fans should expect the structures to feature prominently in the game. Players could not only fight around the pyramids, but they could also fight inside them. It’s easy to imagine a boss fight inside a pyramid, though it could also be a fitting home for the map’s Pack-A-Punch machine.

With the chaos story unexpectedly brought back, it seems likely that Treyarch will use a concept discarded from that narrative. If Chaos Story had gotten another map after Ancient Evil, leaks have said that it would have taken place inside the Library of Alexandria. With elements of Chaos suddenly brought back, fans could finally enjoy a map that makes use of this historical location.


At one time, the Library of Alexandria held the most important collection of knowledge in the world, although Julius Caesar accidentally set fire to many scrolls. This library seems perfect for an Easter Egg step, as it could house an ancient document that tells operators how to defeat Kortifex. It can also be the key to getting the Eye of Apophis Marvelous Weapon, another discarded piece of black ops 4 Zombie content that was reused as a melee weapon in multiplayer. Nobody knows how it would work, although it could offer melee and ranged attacks like the Chrysalax.

The final battle with Kortifex

With the map of Egypt set to conclude this chapter of the Dark Aether narrative, it seems likely that Kortifex will either be killed or imprisoned within the Dark Aether once more. This will likely happen via a bombastic final boss fight on par with The Forsaken, and fans should expect the other Dark Aether entities to be removed from the narrative in some way as well. More connections could be drawn from the Chaos story, giving the black ops 4 story a much-needed closure, though fans shouldn’t expect too many plot threads to be left hanging. Since Treyarch’s next game is likely to put the spotlight back on Eddie, Peck and others cold war black ops characters, demonology could become a thing of the past.


With Shi No Numa Reborn bringing back so many Obligations Zombies staples, it can be assumed that this next map will follow in their footsteps. Another Aether Bunny side quest could appear along with a hidden song, with a few other random secrets scattered throughout the map as well. A unique Pack-A-Punch camo can also be expected, and if the Eye of Apophis isn’t used, another never-before-seen Wonder Weapon could appear. For the first time in a long time, Obligations Zombies have good reason to be excited about the upcoming map.

Call of Duty: Vanguard It is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
