Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Nuketown map has a Doctor Who Easter egg

Blink and you'll miss it.

There's a fun nod to Doctor Who hidden within Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

The first-person shooter's Nuketown 2065 map contains dozens of futuristic mannequins - themselves slightly reminiscent of The Doctor's villainous Auton enemy.

But it's what happens when you shoot the mannequins that's the true Easter egg.

To unlock the secret you'll need to fire at each figure and individually knock off both of their arms. There are many to find, but when you shoot the last one...

Don't blink and they won't move. But leave any mannequin outside your vision and they will creep closer towards you - just like Doctor Who's Weeping Angels.

The Weeping Angels move in the same way - close your eyes or turn out the lights and they are free to move closer, before freezing once again.

Nuketown 2065 is of course the map which has caused so much trouble for Black Ops 3 pre-order customers who didn't realise it was a GAME exclusive in the UK.

YouTuber chaosxsilencer discovered the Easter egg and posted footage, embedded below:
