This is the Fourth Phase of the multi-phase Easter egg in Battlefield 1, named after the dog tag earned upon completion of this Phase. It takes place on the map Zeebrugge, part of the Turning Tides expansion pack. It involves translating a round-specific morse code message which is a variant of a famous latin phrase but with 8 letters missing, converting them to numbers using a special key, then converting the numbers to morse code and finally inputting the morse code using some generator switches to unlock the dog tag.

If you are having trouble at any stage of this Easter egg feel free to join the DiscordIcon.png BFEE Discord and ask for help in the relevant channel.

NOTES

  • The A Beginning and A Conflict dog tags are not a prerequisite for unlocking the An Omen dog tag.
  • The multi-phase Easter egg is disabled in password-protected servers.

Special Infiltrator Morse Locations

Hidden among the 4 Turning Tides maps are invisible phantom sound locations. Standing still inside a small trigger zone at a special location will make a familiar haunting noise. The Infiltrator can receive a special Easter egg message when holding still at these locations.

Note that, if you have the Infiltrator kit equipped and you hold still anywhere on the map, a generic morse code message will be played. Do not confuse that with the special messages which always come after a distinct phantom sound when holding still at specific locations.

Zeebrugge Location

This special location, which is also the starting point, is inside the cabin of the ship on Objective E (Conquest), right next to the spawn location of the Infiltrator kit.

I5.D2.E7.S9.M9. EAGLE IS DOWN. GO THERE AND RETRIEVE SENSITIVE MATERIAL.

Achi Baba Location

CrashedPlaneLocation.png

The second location is at the crashed plane (at the south-east side of the map, moving from Objective A to Objective E) on the map Achi Baba, hinted by the phrase "Eagle is down" from the previous message.

T0.L7.U3.N6.K8. MEET AT KANLI 6 LANDING.

Cape Helles Location

The third location is at one of the boats on the map Cape Helles (nearest Conquest Objectives are E and F), hinted by the location "Kanli 6 landing" mentioned in the previous message.

O2.P0.B5.R4.G8. MOLE SEVERED. LOST CONTACT WITH SISTER SUB.

Heligoland Bight Location

The fourth location is at some rocks near the beached submarine at Objective F (Conquest), hinted by the phrase "Lost contact with sister sub" in the previous message.

Z4.X6.C1.A3.F1 SABOTAGED AT LAUNCH. INVESTIGATE APPLE OVERLOOK.

Final Location

The final location brings us back to the map Zeebrugge and it is at the top of the water tower near Objective A (Conquest), hinted by the phrase "Investigate apple overlook" in the previous message.

Example: DULEETDECRUMESTRPTRIMI

The above message is the following famous latin quote, but with 8 letters missing: (The exact message is round-specific and the missing letters change upon map load)

DULCE ET DECORUM EST PRO PATRIA MORI

Combining All Clues

The beginning of each of the first 4 messages (i.e. I5.D2.E7.S9.M9.) is part of the key required to convert the missing letters from the latin quote to numbers, as explained in the guide further below.

I5.D2.E7.S9.M9. T0.L7.U3.N6.K8. O2.P0.B5.R4.G8. Z4.X6.C1.A3.F1

A=3 B=5 C=1 D=2 E=7 F=1 G=8 H I=5 J K=8 L=7 M=9 N=6 O=2 P=0 Q R=4 S=9 T=0 U=3 V W X=6 Y Z=4

The letters H, J, Q, V, W and Z do not correspond to any number since they're not used in the famous latin quote.

  • Check out this guide if you would like to know how to translate your morse code to text.

NOTE: Audacity has new owners who have apparently implemented an intrusive Privacy Policy on the latest version of the app, as such we suggest you download an older version of Audacity from "fosshub". Anything before Audacity version 3.0 should be fine, such as "version 2.3.3".

  • BFEE Web App -> You can use this web app which automatically outputs the solution if you simply input your water tower morse code.

Water Tower Morse

  1. Pick up the Infiltrator kit from the cabin of the docked ship near Objective E (Conquest).
  2. Stand still at the top of the water tower at the opposite end of the map near Objective A (Conquest).
  3. Record and translate the morse code message transmitted by the Infiltrator.
  4. Compare your code to this phrase, and note the 8 missing letters: DULCE ET DECORUM EST PRO PATRIA MORI
  5. Convert your letters into numbers using this key:

A=3 B=5 C=1 D=2 E=7 F=1 G=8 H I=5 J K=8 L=7 M=9 N=6 O=2 P=0 Q R=4 S=9 T=0 U3= V W X=6 Y Z=4

NOTE:

You can also directly note the numbers corresponding to the 8 missing letters:

DULCE ET DECORUM EST PRO PATRIA MORI

23717 70 2712439 790 042 030453 9245

Generator Lights

  • Find the generator room labeled 1 near Objective C (Conquest).
  • Starting from the left-most generator, interact with the switches to enter your first 4 numbers using the morse code number system:

dot = on dash = off

0 = ----- 1 = .---- 2 = ..--- 3 = ...-- 4 = ....- 5 = ..... 6 = -.... 7 = --... 8 = ---.. 9 = ----.

  • Find the generator room labeled 3 near Objective D (Conquest).
  • Enter the remaining 4 numbers in the same fashion as before. The player that makes the last switch interaction will unlock the An Omen dog tag. After a few seconds, the room will fill with smoke and the person who acquired the dog tag will hear a long sequence of spooky noises.

Example

Morse: DLCEETERUMESPOPATRIMRI

Original latin quote: DULCEETDECORUMESTPROPATRIAMORI

Missing letters: U D C O T R A O

Converting letters to numbers: 3 2 1 2 0 4 3 2 (Based on the key mentioned in the previous section)

Converting numbers to morse code: ...-- / ..--- / .---- / ..--- / ----- / ....- / ...-- / ..---

An Omen

Once the correct switches are in the correct on/off state, black smoke will appear and the player who made the final switch interaction will unlock the An Omen dog tag, a gold variant of the A Beginning and A Conflict dog tags. The dog tag has the following description:
