Limbo Hidden Egg Guide

Chapter 17 (1 secret egg)

From chapter 17’s starting point, push the small cog into the bigger cog to start the world turning. Wait for the hatch that was once under your feet to fall open, then run to the right and climb the cog. Ride it up into the darkness. From here continue right to find the egg.


Chapter 21 (2 secret eggs)

Egg #1) This one’s tricky, so refer to the video. After loading chapter 21, pull the crate on the right outside the field of gravity. Now press the switch. As soon as the gravity timer runs out (or slightly before), push this crate to the left so that the one coming down the slope falls onto and over it. Now push the crate on the right all the way up the slope on the right and wait for the gravity timer to run out. Run down the slope, jump over the switch, push the crate a bit to the left and climb on. When the gravity flips, you and the crate will fly up. Jump off, and when the gravity timer runs out make sure to grab the crate and push it left before it slides down the slope again.
When all is said and done and you are at the top of the slope with the crate, make sure it is upside down (as seen in the video). If not, repeat the process over. You can control how much the crate rotates by where you are standing on it as gravity pulls it toward the ceiling. Push the crate all the way over to the left and let the gun turret shoot it. Now push the crate back to the right. When it drops off the slope, your egg should fall out.

Egg #2) When your reach the portion of chapter 21 seen in the video, instead of using the crates on the ceiling to continue right, you’ll have to carefully stack them so that you can backtrack to the left. Position the crates as seen above so that one falls on top of the other. It is important to be on the right side of the crates when they are stacked. Be very careful (slow) when pushing the stack. If you move too fast they’ll topple. If the top crates looks like it’s about to fall, give the bottom one a quick push or pull to slide it back into place. Now push the stacked crates all the way to the left, and use them to leap up the ledge and find the secret egg. Note you can also use the elevator to stack the crates, but we found the above method easier.


Chapter 23 (2 secret eggs)

Egg #1) From chapter 23’s drop point, jump to the H as you normally would. Instead of continuing, jump back to the ledge on your left. Wait several seconds for the saw to reach the bottom of the platform (listen as it fades away) then run and leap at the last possible moment to left. Timing is crucial as you must be about a step off the ledge when pressing A in order to make the distance. Hit the gravity switch as you fall, and you’ll be back in the same position you began chapter 23. This time, after you jump off the H to the right, an egg will be waiting for you having just fallen from a pipe.

Egg #2) The egg is found in chapter 23 but to get it you need to do some work in chapter 12. Load chapter 12 and leap to the O. Walk along the right side of the O in order to rotate it clockwise. There is a tiny handle that you need to have pointing to the right and down a bit (see picture). Now continue on with the chapter as normal until you touch ground after dropping from the descending fire hose. Now load chapter 23. After leaping over the H and down its right side you’ll notice the O at the bottom of the rope. You’ll now see the handle on the right side. Move toward it and the egg will drop out.


Chapter 24 (1 secret egg)

In order to nab this final egg, you’ll need to beat the entire game in one sitting without dying once. After falling sideways through the glass into the game’s final area, run right and the egg will drop in front of you. Step on it and a stack of cash will fly out your Xbox’s disc tray. Well, maybe not, but you deserve it if 111% is now displayed next to your gamertag.  Congratulations!

    I play LIMBO on Steam. Are these secret achievements also available there? And does anyone knows how to access the leaderboards on Steam??

    I'm not exactly sure, but... There is ANOTHER secret hidden egg, number 11. You can see it after you get the egg out of the O, slide down the incline, and reach the room with the magnetic control and the machine gun. It rests on the ceiling, or rather under the magnetic floor that holds the large platform up. With gravity off, run across the ceiling to see it. If you activate the magnetic control, it disappears. I'm thinking it's a 'crash through the ceiling/floor' kind of thing, but it's definitely another egg.
