Main Page > Battlefield 1 > Megalodon

On the map Fort de Vaux, a Megalodon can be seen erupting from a puddle once three steps have been successfully carried out, killing everyone inside the puddle. The Megalodon is considerably smaller than the ones previously found on the maps Nansha Strike and Paracel Storm in Battlefield 4.

NOTE: The Megalodon trigger cannot be activated during the pre-round phase or in password-protected servers.

Vinyl Records and Gramophone

VinylsMap.jpg

A vinyl record spawns in one of 5 possible fixed locations per round. It can be picked up and placed on the gramophone in the barracks. Upon interaction with the gramophone, a muffled piano song can be heard.

The vinyl record itself has a label that reads "Les Requins, you're gonna need a bigger moat!" ("Les Requins" is French for "The Sharks")

Gramophone Song

The song has a 80bpm tempo, consists of only natural notes and spans 4 octaves. It is enciphered using the French Musical Cryptogram and it decodes to the following message:

SO YOU ARE HERE FOR THE SECRET THAT LIVES BELOW VAUX

ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE READY FOR THIS JOURNEY

DO NOT THINK IT WILL BE EASY AND

DO NOT EXPECT ANY REWARD

ALL YOU WILL FIND IS DEATH

A HINT THAT IS ALL I HAVE FOR YOU SO LISTEN CLOSELY

THE MEN THAT LIVED HERE KNEW ITS SECRET

SEARCH WHERE THEY RESTED WHEN THEY DID NOT WORK

6x6 Key Square

Once the player has interacted with the Gramophone, a 6x6 key square appears on the book found next to the Gramophone. This will be used as the Alphabet Key of an ADFVGX cipher to decrypt some morse code messages later on.

Chair Morse

ChairsMap.png

Three special wooden chairs can be found around the fort, which is where the soldiers rested, as hinted in the Gramophone song. Sitting on them will cause a nearby light to blink morse code, along with revealing a clue about the keyword required to decode it. All morse code messages are encrypted using the ADFGVX cipher and the same 6x6 key square mentioned earlier. The decoded messages reveal clues on how to awake the Megalodon.

NOTES:

  • Blinking light and clue may be obstructed by destructible walls or other objects.
  • Stepping off the chair will stop the blinking and hide the clue.
  • Blinking light is endlessly repeatable when stepping off and on the chair spawn.

Activating the Megalodon

Valves

Three faithful souls will be needed where it's obvious, dark, and deep in the dirt.

This clue is referring to 3 valves found inside and around the fort. To complete this step, the three valves must be interacted with at the same time. (3 players are required)

NOTES

  • Valve marked no.1 on the screenshot below is underground and must be uncovered using explosives.
  • The valves are not interactable during the pre-round phase.

Fort-vaux-valves.jpg

Once all three valves have been interacted with at the same time, a small puddle near C flag (in Conquest) will start filling up with water from three separate pipes.

Drain Hole

The beast sleeps under vaux only noise will wake it up.

Near B flag (in Conquest), there is a drain hole hidden under a pile of boxes. A grenade needs to be thrown down the drain hole to awake the beast.

Sacrifices

BRING SACRIFICES TILL THE WATER TURNS RED MAKE IT PERSONAL

Finally, 3 melee kills must take place inside the water puddle. The puddle will turn more and more red after each kill. When one or more players enter the puddle a few seconds after a 3rd melee kill has occurred, the Megalodon will erupt from the puddle, killing everyone standing in it.
