To utilize the Acid Trap, players will need to first find three parts that always spawn in the same locations. The Chains are located in the Temple, hanging in a corner next to some barrels. In the Temple, you can also find the Gear part in a corner under a cage. To get the Pot part, you need to go to the Arena starting area, melee the banners’ ropes that are decorating the arena, and complete the three challenges that will pop up on your screen. After which, a pot will spawn on the center podium. Finally, go to any temple entrance and interact with the skull switch to create the Acid Trap in all four temple entrances.
Destroyers are heavily armored zombies that carry around two axes. They will throw these axes at players that are also deadly at close range. Players can shoot off their armor, but they will become aggravated and start charging after the players.
Marauders are large zombie enemies found on IX that spawn from barricades or summoned from the gong. Their attacks include lunging from a distance and meleeing players. Marauders typically spawn after round 8.
Zombie Tigers are large beasts that spawn during regular and special rounds. Zombie Tigers drop a godhead when killed. Just like hellhounds, they are fast!

Venerated Warrior is the Main Easter Egg on IX, it first requires the Pack-A-Punch to be built, the Brazen Bull, and the Acid Trap.
Step 1: Go to the Danu-Ra Temple Entrance and shoot the firepit to gain entry through the metal gate. Walk along the bridge that goes to the Ra Tower and Danu Tower. Look for a burning pointer on the ground, which will indicate where you can collect the Statue Head. These are the Statue Head locations in each Tower: 1. Ra Tower placed behind a burning fire pit in a corner. 2. Danu Tower, in the water. 3. Odin Tower, under the large cauldron. 4. Zeus Tower, in the corner of the blood bath
Step 2: Place the Statue Head on the Ra Tower Acid Trap in the center of the grate on the floor and activate the Acid Trap. Now let the Statue Head melt into the Scorpion Key and collect it
Step 3: Raise your crowd affinity levels twice and wait for a message cue that the Gold Vase has spawned in the arena on the ground. (Raising Crowd Affinity can be displayed by the green thumbs up near the health bar. Killing champions, ie. Zombie enemies, deflecting zombie damage, using special weapons, activating traps, revives, etc.)
Step 4: Go to the Arboretum of the Tower of Danu and look for a keyhole in a tree near the stairs going to the entrance, Melee the keyhole to use the Scorpion Key.
Step 5: Place the Golden Vase under the Scorpion Key and let it collect acid for a whole round. After completing the round, pick up the Golden Vase and use the acid at the Mystery Box. Once the box is green, use the mystery box for a guaranteed drop of the Death of Orion Wonder Weapon
Step 6: Find a Gladiator Zombie and bring it to the Arena; crouch behind a brazier to make it throw an axe at one of the fire pits. It should loosen a pyre part. Collect the Pyre piece and place it on a hook in the large Cauldon in the Odin Tower. It can be picked back up after 2-3 rounds and will now be a hot red pyre.
Step 7: Go to the Arena and get your Crowd Affinity to zero in the following ways; shooting the crowd, walk through the fire, getting hit by zombies, and generally any sort of mistakes to displease the crowd. Wait for the Crowd to start throwing items into the Arena and pick up any thrown Dung.
Step 8: Go to the Temple where the Pack-A-Punch machine is and look around the room for a skull on the wall with a blue symbol on the head. Interact with the skull using your special weapon to make it drop to the floor and pick it up.
Step 9: Go to the Flooded Crypt and look for the Skull Grinder around the area, place the skull in the grinder and use the Death of Orion to shoot the grinder a few times. After it changes to a ground-up bone meal, pick it back up.
Step 10: Go to the Zeus Tower: Bath House. Mix the Pyre, Dung, and Bone Meal in a bowl. Let it mix for 2-3 rounds. Green smoke should be emanating from the bowl once it is ready.
Step 11: Go to the Danu Towers: Arboretum and place the mixture on the ground where no water is and wait for 2-3 rounds once green smoke is emanating again.
Step 12: Get two to three kills with a Firebomb on top of the mixture. Blue cracks should appear on the ground if successful. Get all players to stand on the mixture and fight the next intense battle then Interact with the mixture and equip your special weapons to be teleported to a new area.
Step 13: Kill the wave of zombies whilst shooting at the three red pods in the center on the tree trunk and repeat on the next two levels upstairs to be teleported back.
Step 14: Use the Shields gun and shoot at four bull symbols around the map, which should then start glowing, then kill the champion to let the soul be collected by the Ra Statue. The possible locations for the symbols are: 1. Arena, above the first gate that closed after entering the Arena. 2. Odin-Zeus Bridge, on the Zeus Tower. 3. Odin-Zeus Temple Entrance, in the Zeus area on the arch covered in foliage. 4. Danu Altar Room, in the zombie barricade in front of the crowd. 5. Flooded Crypt, in a zombie window. 6. Temple, in a zombie barricade. 7. The Pitt, in a crack in the wall. 8. Danu Tunnel, in a zombie barricade window next to a wall torch.
Step 15: You should see a laser beam be shot out into an obelisk from the Statue after all the bull symbols have been completed. Interact with the Obelisk and take note of all the symbols that appear in which you will teleport a new area.
Step 16: Kill the champion zombies in order from bottom to top, which was noted from the Obelisk. Do not kill other enemies except for regular zombies in this step to avoid repeating the previous step.
Step 17: Raise four lighting poles around the map by shooting them to have them appear at the Arena. They can be found inside: Danu Tunnel, after exiting the Flooded Crypt near the vine-covered window. Odin Tunnel, a pole jutting out the ceiling above the statue. Collapsed Tunnel, near the Danu Ra Temple Entrance near the right window. The Cursed Room, near The Crypts, near the left window.
Step 18: Pack-A-Punch the Death of Orion into the Serket’s Kiss and have all players interact with a stone pillar in the center of the arena to be teleported.
Step 19: Go to the Arena. Use the Serket’s Kiss Kill-O-Watt ability to shoot zombies near the poles within the four electric circles and let the souls absorb into the poles. The lighting poles should turn glowing blue after all souls have been absorbed.
Step 20: Activate the next trial by interacting with the podium then have all players interact with the blue orb to turn it red, this will cause the players to be teleported once again. Now kill the wave of zombies.
Step 21: Go to the Temple and shoot 3 glowing symbols with the Death of Orion at specific angles to make them turn blue. Danu Tunnel, jump and shoot the symbol from the pillar. The Pitt, shoot between the broken wall and under the chains at the symbol on the wall. The Crypts, shoot at the right corner under the chains at the symbol on the broken wall.
Step 22: Have all players stand on the metal grate flooring and interact at the same time to be teleported to the final trial area. Survive a few waves of zombies until all players can interact with the red portal in the Arena to be teleported to the final boss area.
Step 23: At the final boss stage, kill the Wrath and Fury boss by completing all of the zombie waves. Shoot the armor of the elephants for effectiveness. After defeating Wrath and Fury, the final cutscene will play. Congratulations, you have completed the IX Easter Egg A.K.A Venerated Warrior achievement.
