Some games hide some very big secrets. Battlefield 4 is no different. For months, gamers have been looking for a giant shark supposedly hidden in the game--and it's finally been discovered.

The Parcel Storm map is where the Megalodon can be discovered. In order to summon the beast, you'll need to have 10 players gather around the buoy. Watch this video by Jackfrags to see for yourself (via Eurogamer):

        How many points of sweat did you lose before dropping that gem after you saw the words "Battlefield 4"?

        Have you played it recently, or at all? I'm guessing neither...

        IIRC there were some hints dropped by DICE employees in a few interviews, and then they made some tweets. a number of servers were even set aside by players for Megaladon hunting, to try and figure it out. i dont remember if the DICE folks specifically said it was on Paracel Storm, or if everyone just figured well..... a giant shark is probably going to be on a water based map, which made paracel storm the obvious choice.

        the "hunt" for this thing has been going on for months.

        i wonder however, if this was always in the game, or if maybe they added it in during one of the big patches, in response to the pretty massive stir it caused in the community. i would like to think it was always there.

      Is this a spoof of COD's underwater shark retardiness?

      I saw it for myself today for the first time. It was an easter egg to most of us on the team haha.

      I wasted like 5 hours of my life looking for this shark and never found it. Seeing it now almost brings a tear to my eye.

      What's the story behind this? I'm ignorant to BF history. Was this in a previous game and it's back?

        Read Vitek's post a little bit above. Just a general easter egg that was hinted at and had been hidden since the game launched.

          Oh, I see. I kinda figured there was a little more backstory to it, other than "Hay guys there's a shark"

        Did BF4 jump the shark, or did BF4's shark jump you?

      Is it not possible to make a recording of the shark from the perspective of the players around the buoy?

      (I've never played BF, so I dunno)
