Borderlands 3 Easter Egg: A Tribute to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Borderlands 3 Gameplay

As the fans of the Borderlands series will know, the Gearbox guys love to fill the sci-fi universe of the Crypt Hunters with easter eggs. The new chapter of the epic looter shooter will certainly not be less, as suggested by the discovery of a nice tribute to the films of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The managers of the famous YouTube channel of Arekkz Gaming have in fact found an important easter egg by Borderlands 3 dedicated to the cinematographic masterpieces linked to the fantasy saga of JRR Tolkien and, specifically, to the first chapter of the series, La Compagnia dell’Anello.

The relevant egg in question was discovered in the most advanced stages of the adventure of the new Crypt Hunters and is represented in “several phases”, with various tributes to the epic lived by Frodo and his friends. Without giving indications on the places to explore and on the missions to be carried out to avoid showing the side to annoying spoilers, we limit ourselves to show you and describe the video that depicts the easter eggs with clear references to the first film of the Lord of the Rings.

In the movie, we can, in fact, notice the presence of a skull that falls inside a well in homage to the scene that precedes the fight in the mines of Moria : even in Borderlands 3, the noise caused by the skull will cause many problems to our to alter- ego, which however can console itself at the end of the mission with a weapon capable of projecting tongues of fire similar to the whip of the Balrog Demon!
