Easter egg 2012

The 2012 Easter Event: Chocatrice vs Evil Chicken was released on 2 April 2012. It's based on a typical Easter egg hunt with a RuneScape twist. The player can join either the Chocatrice's team or the Evil Chicken's team and scavenge five eggs.

According to the Chocatrice the Easter Bunny has fallen from White Wolf Mountain (with a rock tied to his foot) and is unfit for duty because he broke his big toe. If you talk to the Evil Chicken you will hear that he has fallen into a pit of lava. Strange thing huh? He has, however, already hidden five magic eggs around Gielinor (two of which are in members-only areas). In Varrock Square, the Evil Chicken and Chocatrice (from the 2007 Easter event) are having a showdown. The Chocatrice wants to turn the chicks inside the eggs into chocolate while the Evil Chicken wants to turn them into drumsticks.

The player must help them by finding the eggs, then opening them and shooting the chick with the Eggsterminator cannon. This cannon either turns them into drumsticks or chocolate treats. Both can be eaten or given to respectively the Evil Chicken or the Chocatrice.

If 3 treats are brought to the right creature (i.e. 3 chocolate treats to the Chocatrice or 3 drumsticks to the Evil Chicken), the player receives a Chocolate egg on face mask, which turns the head of the player into a chocolate egg with a ribbon around it when worn or an Egg on face mask, which covers the top of the head and has a fried egg covering the player's right eye. The mask received depends on the side that is chosen. Players who help the Chocatrice receive the chocolate version while players who help the Evil Chicken receive the regular version.

Neither helmet has a special emote that can be used when worn but when shot by the Eggsterminator by another player, the masks reveal a secret emote where the player spins around as they are hit. Each emote varies depending on the mask being worn.

Every 2 hours or so new eggs will spawn in new places. A pile of rubble is seen at old locations.

Players must speak to the Evil Chicken or the Chocatrice at the start of each wave to take part. If they do not, the player will not be able to crack the eggs.

Old waves are now being archived here to reduce the size and loading time of this page.


Remember: You have to re-visit Varrock square to find eggs in each new wave/hunt. Otherwise all you will see is rubble.


During the 94th wave, the eggs were located in the following places:

  • Definitely not the Lumbridge Swamp.
  • West of Gamers' Grotto
  • South of Gertrude's House
  • West of the Digsite Exam Centre (m)
  • West of the Digsite (m)

All Players

Egg on face mask equipped
Chocolate egg on face mask equipped

For giving either of the hosts 3 of their respective treats, one is awarded a mask, either the egg on face mask, if they gave three evil drumsticks to Evil Chicken, or the chocolate egg on face mask if they gave three chocotreats to Chocatrice.

You can obtain both the egg on face and chocolate egg on face masks by completing the egg hunts for both the Chocatrice and the Evil Chicken.

Any Easter emotes you have not previously unlocked will also be unlocked upon completion of either the Chocatrice's or Evil Chicken's task.

Members Only

For finding all five eggs in one hunt, the player will receive an Easter lamp, giving experience at the same value as a random event lamp. There is no limit to the number of lamps that can be obtained from doing this.

For finding all five eggs in three different waves (for a total of 15 eggs), the player is able to keep the Eggsterminator after the event is over.

Possible Locations

NOTE: Where there is rubble that seems to form a circle, it's the place where the egg is supposed to be.

  • When a hunt ended, a yellow chatbox message would display "News: The Easter Egg Hunt has ended! A new one will commence shortly".
  • When a new hunt started, a yellow chatbox message would display "News: A new Easter Egg Hunt has begun! Speak with the Evil Chicken or Chocatrice in Varrock Square to start it".
  • Upon the release in World 2, there was a small glitch on the first wave that somehow caused certain players to not receive the eggsterminator after it said they had received one. Talking to the Chocatrice or Evil Chicken afterwards, they acted as if the player already had one in their inventory. If the player went to another world however, they would receive another one.
  • The 2012 Easter Event seems to be the first holiday event in many years which doesn't have an unlockable emote; if players don't have the emotes for Easter, it unlocks them.
  • Unlike past holiday events, the 2012 Easter Event cannot be seen on the in-game quest menu.
  • There was a glitch that when players used the splatter option with another player and then quickly used the emote Seal of Approval, the seal would stretch. This was patched within the last hour of Wave 4. Now if players try to do it, it will say 'You're already doing an emote'.
  • When targeting attackable NPCs it will say 'The Eggsterminator can only target cute little chicks and other players'.
  • When players use a bucket on the west side of the Varrock fountain, they receive a normal bucket of water despite the water appearing to be chocolate, and clay becomes wet clay in the normal fashion.
  • It is impossible to get a permanent Eggsterminator in F2P because players need to get all 5 eggs in at least 3 waves. Since there are at least 2 spots that are in member's areas in each wave, F2P players are unable to complete it. So therefore the Eggsterminator is actually a members-only item and when in a F2P world, the Eggsterminator says Members Item.
  • If players use the chocotreat on the Evil Chicken, it will state "Eurgh - disgusting! Do you know that chocolate is my one weakness?"
  • If players use the evil drumstick on the Chocatrice, it will state "Keep that fowl leg away from me." Fowl is a play on words; as a fowl is a bird fit for eating; and foul (which is what the pun is based on) is putrid.
  • During the eggsterminator reload, you cannot shoot. If you try to, the text "You can't fire the eggsterminator whilst doing an emote" appears.
  • There is a glitch when a player had finished the 2012 Easter Event while wielding the eggsterminator. Once players had finished all 3 hunts and got a "permanent eggsterminator", their eggsterminator would be placed in their inventory but they would still have the option to "Splatter" other players without having the eggsterminator wielded. This has not been patched.
