Borderlands 3 is a game full of quotes and easter eggs, in the past few hours we have told you about a tribute to Team Rocket and the presence of weapons dedicated to One Punch Man and Rick & Morty, but there are many other surprises to discover!
One of these is linked to Super Mario Bros: specifically, the legendary Compressing Superball gun is capable of firing incendiary bullets in the form of fireballs that explode on impact with the enemy. Does it remind you of something? That’s right, the effect of the flower power-up in the Super Mario series. The description of the weapon shows the word ” Flower Power “, so it is obviously not a case or a pure coincidence. The first Borderlands contained an objective called ” My brother is an Italian plumber “, which can be unlocked by killing an enemy with a head jump.
In addition to the weapons of Rick & Morty and One Punch Man in Borderlands 3, there is also a rifle inspired by Dr. DisRispect, the famous streamer and former developer of Call of Duty, now a real web celebrity. Borderlands 3 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the Gearbox game recorded the best launch in 2019 on the UK retail market.
