No, it's not required. There are 2 different ways to get the Easter Egg. The one he is talking about is how you do it with Dr. Maxis talking to you. The one with the gun parts is by doing what Richtofen says. I watched both videos and Richtofen's seemed like a lot harder way to do it then compared to this version. So I'd skip it.
