The Division 2 Owl Statue Puzzle Easter Egg Discovered
The Division 2 sleuths have solved a very curious mystery, dubbed “The Secret of the Owls” by those investigating the Easter Egg. The mystery began a week after The Division 2‘s launch when players discovered a number of wooden owl statues within the Roosevelt Island Invaded Stronghold.
Here’s how the puzzle works. Players must go into the Invaded version of the Roosevelt Island Stronghold and complete it all the way through to the final boss. Once the boss is eliminated, seven different hidden owl statues will appear, each with an interactive candle. After activating these owls in a very specific order, an owl will hoot and a secret room’s entrance will open.
Within this secret room is a large owl statue, an idol for what may be some sort of cult. Moving next to the statue will activate an audio cue, “The gears are turning, the plans in motion. We will have to scatter to avoid detection. This may be the last meeting of the Morovion Society. We will seal this site until another who knows the rituals can re-open it.”
This is the current state of progress for players investigating The Division Easter Egg. It’s not clear if there are further steps within the puzzle or if completing the puzzle and hearing the owl’s message changes anything in the world. Nevertheless, there’s clearly something to the Morovian Society beyond the scope of what’s shown in the Easter Egg.
For The Division 2 players who want to solve the Easter Egg for themselves, IArkeus has written up a guide and posted it on Reddit. They attribute the work to a Discord of The Division 2 players focused on finding secrets. All images and the details of finding each owl statue can be sourced from IArkeus and this Discord.
The Division 2 is already known to be filled with plenty of secrets and Easter Eggs, including the popular hidden hunter masks that players can unlock by defeating the challenging enemies. Even if there isn’t more to the Morovian Society mystery, for now, Massive will likely build on these initial clues throughout the season.
The Division 2 is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
