Gearbox Software has hidden a Minecraft Easter Egg in Borderlands 2. In this guide, I’m going to tell you how you can find it and what secrets you can get from there.
You need to have completed chapter 9 of Borderlands 2’s main story campaign in order to access the Minecraft Easter Egg. This is after the big moment at Sanctuary and you are able to enter the Caustic Caverns underneath the city.
Borderlands 2 Minecraft Easter Egg Guide
1. Go to the Caustic Caverns
Use a Fast Travel Station to get there or travel to Sanctuary Hole if you haven’t discovered the area just yet. You can access it after completing Chapter 9.
2. Travel to the NorthWestern area of the Caustic Caverns
There are two train tracks in the northwestern area of the Caustic Caverns. This location is called the “Guardian Ruins”.
3. Locate Minecraft Cave
There is a hidden cave containing the Minecraft easter egg on the right side of the train tracks.
4. Access Minecraft Cave
The entrance to the cave is blocked (pun intended) by the iconic Minecraft blocks. You will need to punch them in order to carve your way inside.
5. Avoid Creepers
You will encounter the classic Minecraft creepers inside this hidden cave area. They will walk towards you and then explode in your face. A single creeper can put you on the edge of “Fight for Your Life” when you are at full health.
Minecraft Easter Egg Rewards
There are several unique items that you can obtain in the hidden Minecraft cave. There are themed head and skin customization items that feature the aesthetics of the game. Then there also is the legendary Longbow sniper rifle that can only drop from Badass Creepers.
You can smash the various blocks for loot and there is a small chance you can get the themed cosmetic item from them. The purple blocks can be mined for Eridium, while it’s a nice way to get some of this rare currency there are faster ways to get Eridium in Borderlands 2.
