Musical Easter Egg: Beauty of Annihilation by Elena Siegman
As seen in the previous Nazi Zombies map Shi No Numa, Der Riese features a hidden song that can be activated by locating three glowing jars that are spread around various parts of the map. When you are close to one of the areas in which one of these jars are located, you will begin to hear a strange, alien-like sound becoming noticeable over the normal sounds of standard gameplay. When you have found the jar, simply active them by pressing the Square (PS3) or Blue X (XB360) buttons. After you have found and activated all three, the song "Beauty of Annihilation" by Elena Siegman will start playing in the background behind the normal gameplay audio.
Map Easter Egg: Mysterious Radio Transmissions
Spread out in various locations around the map, several radio units that contain special recordings await your discovery. Activate them in the same way as you activate the jars for the musical easter egg and you can listen to the recorded messages.
