How To Find Portal Easter Egg in CS:GO Danger Zone
The CS:GO Portal Easter Egg was initially found by u/snaileny on Reddit. By traveling to a hidden computer room on the map and waiting for 2 minutes, a radio broadcast plays.
There are multiple routes to access the room if you want to check it out yourself. Simply go to the ‘Tourist’ section of the map and travel to Door 2 of the Motel via the roof or the buildings nearby.
The CS:GO Dev team confirmed this is a Portal Easter Egg, although many fans were let down to hear it’s not an announcement for a new game.
Congrats to all who have found our Portal Easter egg on dz_blacksite! We’re just having a bit of fun and the Easter egg is not a product announcement. Enjoy Danger Zone!
