Battlefield 4's Megalodon Shark Easter Egg Finally Found in Naval Strike DLC [VIDEO]

It's been a long time that Battlefield 4 players have been looking for the giant prehistoric shark, and today it's finally been uncovered. Which is great, because while I may not be the biggest FPS player, I do love shoehorning in quotes from "Jaws."

As it turns out, the shark is nowhere to be found on the Parcel Storm map. Instead, anyone looking for the shark will first need to grab Naval Strike, because it's the DLC's Nansha Islands map that the shark calls home. Fitting, as the map features the longest stretch of ocean on any Battlefield map to date.

There's some interesting and mysterious features on the map, like the underground tunnel with the ghostly voices and security camera following players, and a sunken radio dish, but these have nothing to do with finding the leviathan.

Instead, all that players need to do is summon their inner Robert Shaw, and head out to water's lonely buoy with 9 other suicidal players.

So, to paraphrase Quint, "Men go on the buoy, buoy's in the water. Shark's in the water. Our shark."

That's all that's needed to trigger a whopping shark to break the surface, and land square atop anyone foolish enough to glimpse the majesty of a shark taking flight. Even the combined might of the U.S.S. Indianapolis and Chief Brody won't save you from this beast.

Despite the assured death, watching this thing is pretty amazing, maybe even better than those cheesy sy fy originals. Maybe...

Check the video below for a better angle.

Timing was definitely key on this, because while the DLC released in late March, had anyone tried to say on the first of April that they finally found this, not a soul would've believed 'em.

So, now that the shark has been proven to exist, who's up to see if it can be killed? You have until April 15 to figure out a strategy.
