It's Official... Borderlands 2 Has the Greatest Easter Eggs EVER! (SPOILERS)

Gearbox Software is simply... AWESOME! They made several homages to the following video games: Dark Souls, Metal Gear Solid and Minecraft.

Dark Souls:

Metal Gear Solid: Not only you return to a familiar place (Fyrestone), there's an enemy boss that bears a resemblance to Metal Gear Rex (boss name: Saturn). There are also several customization items that make reference to Metal Gear Solid (such as Metal Fear, a head skin that looks awful similar to Gray Fox's helmet).


There are a bunch of other Easter Eggs (or references) out there!

I literally thought I had bought laced weed, and was tripping when I found the minecraft area.

I like the Marauders that wear the things that make them look like Cell.

The music in Dust reminds me of FF7 (don't derail the topic because of my comment)

Where you find minecraft? I did the mine cart pushing quest and saw nothing.

btw In the Fridge I found Rakkman.

Think it relates to Batman.
Not much of potato he said but potato he wrote.
