So I’m not sure how many of you have been keeping track of the 700+ thread about the hunt for the elusive easter eggs in the Battleborn Operations, but we’ve been getting really close and finally today an awesome user by the name of @whatsmynameagain figured out the final key we were missing and decoded all of the messages hidden inside the DLC Operation side objectives where a portal spawns for a few seconds emitting a looping signal and then disappears.
Here’s what each of the signals sounded like. The hints we were given after the last DLC dropped was that it was morse code and that it was reversed however it turned out that only the first 2 Operations were actually reversed.
Here is what each signal translates to:
@whatsmynameagain also created a neat infographic showing how he was able to find the hidden morse code amongst the static by analysing the spectrogram.
If you would like to read up on the egg hunt which had been ongoing for months you can read the original thread here.
Note I bookmarked it at the point where the discovery was made, but there was actually quite a bit more that happened before it and I highly recommend giving it a read and checking out the DLC Operations yourself as they have some pretty great writing on them (especially the last one).
It’s pretty cool how the timing ended up coinciding with them showcasing the new tech at GDC which they will most likely use for Borderlands 3! Not only do we now have a glimpse at what it could look like, but we now also have 5 somewhat cryptic messages relating to the plot that is going to take place in the next game!
