Easter Eggs are hidden secrets in the form of props or text. Some Easter Eggs are hard to find while other ones are relatively easy to find.
The Resistance series contains a number of Easter Eggs for the player to find.
Recurring Easter EggsEdit
Recurring Easter Eggs are Easter Eggs that appear in multiple games. The most iconic ones are Gnomes and Teddy Bears.
These appear on levels (and out of levels) in Resistance: Fall of Man. In the first mission of Somerset, Search and Rescue, after you've defeated all the Chimera in the first part go to the cross road, where the second group of Chimera attack you, go left to this garden where a dead Black Ops soldier is with an intel piece. Once you are in it, immediately turn left and there's a gnome. As well as in Bristol you can find another Gnome after obtaining the L11-2 Dragon and going back the way you came look through the bushes nearby and you can see it looking in the distance looking at all the destruction.
Gnomes make an appearance in Resistance 3 when you are in a flooded cavern, use an Auger and focus on a cabinet, you can see the outlines of many gnomes are inside the cabinet. Also on April Fools' Day all Grims will throw gnomes instead of stones at the player.
Teddy Bears Edit
These appear in Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2.
Locations: In Twin Falls, when you first meet up with Hawthorne who is on top of a truck look to the right and there's a white garage. Crouch down and look into the window on the furthest left and there's a teddy bear. Also the moment you enter Warner's house, kill the three Grims in the basement then turn around and look under the stairs that you entered in, you can just make out a teddy bear. At the top of Warner's house when he jumps off the broken balcony don't follow him. Instead go left on the balcony and look over the wall at the house. On the doorstep of a house is a teddy bear.
Jack in the Box Edit
The Jack in the Box makes an appearance in Resistance 2 and Resistance 3. In Resistance 2 there is a Jack in the Box hidden behind some crates and in Resistance 3 it appears in Graterford Prison and it is part of a trophy called "One Eyed Jack".

Morse Code Edit
Besides the many Gnomes and Teddy Bears that can be found throughout Resistance: Fall of Man there is also a Morse Code easter egg.
Sometimes in the campaign mode when finding a Black Ops corpse, morse code can be heared and a radio lying next to the corpse.
Although there are no real easter eggs in the game, there are some secret rooms hidden in the game. In the level Where Nightmares Live, in area 03 of that level there is a secret room you can enter. To enter the room you have search for a short wall, then climb on the short wall and hop into a hidden pool. Swim down here and search for a lever on the wall to pull. It slowly opens a wall. Enter the next chamber and pull another lever to open another wall. Surface on the other side and on the right in this room, there is the Infected Intel: "How Long Have These Been Here?". The only weird thing in this secret room is a hole in the wall with some kind of green crystal in it.
When searching for Intel in Resistance: Retribution you will come across many secret rooms that are well hidden. Some of these rooms are very disturbing and creepy.
Moai Statues Edit
These statues that originate from Easter Island can be found in Orick. They can be found hidden outside and in the map.
Some of these satues are well hidden. One statue can be found behind a dumpster, another one can be found hidden behind a Grim cocoon and there is also one hidden behind a window. Some of these statues can be found on rooftops.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Edit
In Co-op mode of Resistance 2, after a Spec Ops unit has activated the Prototype Ammo berserk, if one was to zoom in on the top of the crate, it has a variety of numbers and letters, but also reads "MGS4PWNS." This is a sneaky Easter Egg by the developers and was very cleverly implemented (can be seen in screenshot) it also works in competitive mode when you activate prototype ammo look at the boxes and they are the same as in co op.
Doo Yuwanta BiscuitEdit
In a pre-game release of pictures for Resistance 2, in one of them is the Leviathan in Chicago searching a building, in a building near is a sign that says "Doo Yuwanta Biscuit" which obviously is "Do you want a biscuit".
This same sign can also be found twice in online competitive mode in Chicago, in the car park area near Garfield Park and in another car park area to the right of Chicago's cinema's front entrance.
In Resistance 2 campaign in Twin Falls and Chicago there are 4 dead bodies that can be found by the player one with a yellow jacket and jeans one with a blue shirt and tan jeans one with a brown jacket and tan jeans and one with a red shirt and overalls the most common body is the one with the yellow jacket and jeans the rarest is the one with the red shirt and overalls the corpses usally appear before, during or after a Grim attack suggesting the corpses were killed by the Grims they only appear in Twin Falls and Chicago but in Cocodrie one of the coprses makes a cameo appearance at the start of the level besides the Fury infested water its the one with the yellow jacked and jeans unlike SRPA corpses they dont carry any intel documents. The reason they are an easter egg is because some of the corpses are well hidden.
In Twin Falls there is a Grim corpse with cloths lying on a bed this is the only time in game a grim is seen wearing anything the other grims with clothes on are the ones in the concept art there is also a corpse with a yellow jacket and jeans. Pills or drugs can be seen on the bed aswell .
In campaign and competitive in Twin Falls thers posters for 2 films: "The Big Kibosh" and "Ransom Scot" there are also names and photos of actors on it. There is also a big poster in Resistance 3 in the trainyard with Noah Grace on it.
In the Holar Tower level in the trenches one of the crashed planes has a message saying miss peacemaker with a painting of a woman. It can be accessed in campaign and although inaccessible in competitive it can be seen using a Fareye.
The Mysterious Man Edit
During the boat level in Resistance 3 a misterious grayed-out character can be seen staring at the boat from behind a window.
Frozen Furies Edit
In Resistance 3 a snowman can be seen when first entering Central Park. It can be seen in a crashed VTOL and can be destroyed by shooting at it.
Wine Label Edit
Throughout the game you will find many wine bottles strewn around various environments. If you look close enough you will see that the label has a face on it. The face you see is from an Insominac employee that passed away several years ago.
Hydra Tank Edit
At the end of Resistance 3, Capelli's son is seen playing with a toy Hydra Tank, an enemy from Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time.
