Black Ops 3: Gorod Krovi – How to Wield the Gauntlet of Siegfried
On PC, PS4 & Xbox One: Summon your own personal dragon pal in Gorod Krovi with another overly complicated series of esoteric challenges.
This Specialist tool is especially cool — it takes the form of a miniature dragon that rests on your wrist and comes with two amazing functions. First, you’ll get a mini-dragon flamethrower that blasts a short-range burst of deadly green flame. The second function sends the dragon into the sky, where it circles the player and attacks any zombies that get close. Consider this guy your own personal living drone.
Getting him won’t be easy. Follow the complete guide for details explanation or every step, then check out how to unlock another Easter egg on our Black Ops 3: Gorod Krovi Secret Song Guide.

With all the prep work done, it’s time to start the hunt for the Dragon Egg. This begins at the Pack-A-Punch building.
Step #1: Get the Dragon Egg
To leave the Pack-A-Punch building, you’ll need to drop into an open chute in the lowest section of that structure. There’s a metal grate that leads into a sewer. Don’t go inside yet — instead, collect an explosive weapon. This includes the Ray Gun or other Pack-A-Punch’d weapons.
Look above the open metal chute to the broken wooden boards above. There’s a large green egg-shaped object resting precariously close to the edge. Shoot the boards beneath the object and the egg will roll down. When it stops, interact with the Egg to collect it.
Step #2: Dragon Strike Power-Up
Now you have a Dragon Egg! Well done. Now go upstairs in the Pack-A-Punch building. There’s a strange device containing a new weapon in the center. Hold the [Interact] button to unlock it. The shutters will open in the building, and a horde of zombies will attack.
Hold off the zombies and the Dragon Strike Controller will become available. Return to find the container device open. The Controller allows you to call-in and target Dragon fireballs from the sky. You’ll need it to get the Gauntlet!
Return to the Dragon Command area. At the base of the steps to the large building, right next to the wooden sign pointing to the way to more areas, you’ll find a nest. It’s a bird-like nest, and it is very easy to overlook.
Interact with the nest to place the Dragon Egg. Once it is in place, target the Dragon Egg (in the nest) with your Dragon Strike Controller. This ‘heats’ the egg — you can also wait until a dragon arrives and breathes fire on the egg at random. Wait until the egg cools, then pick it up again to complete the next part of this challenge.
Step #3: Complete Challenges
Return to the spawn area. In one corner, there are four gravestones — these are your challenge board. They track your progress and provide special challenges for you to complete as you survive each round.
One of these challenges is ‘Get a Dragon Egg’ — it is on the left-most gravestone, on the lower (South) position. Now that you have an egg, the challenge on that particular marker will change. Go check it out to learn what challenges you must complete next.
Challenges include; killing napalm (burning) zombies, get penetrating multikills, and get melee kills. Complete three of these challenges from the challenge board.
Step #4: Return to the Pack-A-Punch
Once all three challenges are complete, summon the dragon and ride back to the Pack-A-Punch building. Travel down into the underground laboratory, and look for the tube-like incubators in the center. There are four tubes, but only one isn’t cracked.
Interact with the pristine incubator to begin incubating your Dragon Egg. This initiates another Lockdown sequence — kill all the enemies nearby, transferring power to the egg / incubator. Once fully charged, you’ll see the egg has a new message. It must ‘be cooled’ before grabbing it again. Wait a full two more rounds, then return to the egg.
Step #5: Acquiring the Gauntlet of Siegfried
Now it’s time to get your Gauntlet. Grab the egg, return to the spawn area’s challenge board, and look at the challenge marker for ‘Incubate the Dragon Egg’ — it should now have a prompt to interact and collect your reward.
Hold down [Square / X] and your prized Specialist Weapon will appear out of the grave. Enjoy the Gauntlet of Siegfried. How much do you bet you’ll need it for something else down the line? Let’s just say the odds are stacked in favor of that outcome.
