Where are the Easter Eggs from BL3?

As I read it… but idk what that means lol unless the vault symbol stands for an A making it promethea? Maybe a new planet where the next vault will be or something

Oh true!! That makes more sense, but the Vault symbol is to make it clear its referencing Borderlands?

[edit]

“entity known as Promethea whose task it is to bring the Apocalypse”.

And maybe that’s the clever catch to it. Its supposed to allude to BL3 right? So maybe its just a hint thats on us to interpretate on what it is. Using the symbol as a letter to make a name, but is obviously related to BL… and now leaving us riddled, making scenarios as such rn(me theorizing)

Promethea, googled “battleborn promethea” and this popped up

So maybe it takes place on promethea?

Niiiice find, I didn’t even bother searching it up I just read it as I saw it but nice this really gets somewhere. A planet more dangerous than pandora? And theories of the atlas corporation returning? It kinda adds up. It only gets even more suspicious( even by coincidence) that it’s marked out in crimson red, disregarding the fact that the map is tempest where obviously the jennerit are crimson but y’know, just cookin up some theories

A friend of mine noticed the graffiti, I was the one who caught the vault symbol and realized there was significance. I’m going to message her to keep an eye out for any other oddities

Yeah please do, I’ll “try” to do some private ops with some friends to just roam the map and see if we could find anything. We’re onto something here… This map, like attikus, even has us detective-turned…

Probably even more farfetched but staring at the photo-either my mind is playing tricks on me making me see what I want to see or its there- the o kinda looks like the 0 that appears on Zer0’s visor with the slash in it… Maybe some Zer0 origins??

On the other Jennerit maps (Outskirts, the Prologue, etc), the graffiti is also in red. I don’t think it has any significance other than to hide the fact that at a glance it just looks like more Thrall scribblings. The lighting is rather dark on that part of the map and even though I was actively looking for it, I totally missed it when I went looking the other night, and I actually knew what I was looking for :sweat_smile:

This is the only easter egg I have any idea about from my data mining, and I only stumbled on it by accident while looking for stuff for my website (I had actually forgotten all about the Easter Egg thing until I saw that). There could be more, but given the size of the map (and the size of what it could mean if Promethea is the location for BL3), I don’t reckon there will be too many in each mission as there wouldn’t be enough places to hide them!

If you see anything you think is an Easter egg or may have a connection send a message or write a post about it, if it weren’t for the vault symbol I wouldn’t have caught this at all and I may be missing a lot of things

(the whole see what you expect conundrum)

But my gut feeling is that the Easter eggs will be the small things, like this graffiti. Or perhaps posters(I haven’t noticed any yet but it may be that I wasn’t searching for them)

Will do, I’ll probably start by looking off map maybe JUST maybe there’s something out in the distance

Just remember @lowlines is probably right, there wouldn’t be that many places to hide Easter eggs so there probably won’t be many per operation.

Don’t let me stop you though! :wink:

Yeah the map is generally small and there’s likely only a hint or two each OP unless they’re real clever about it but again, i don’t think they’d flood us with easter eggs

but the biggest rule is share with the community so we can pool our resources! (such as @lowlines posting the image I couldn’t make out but cleaned up so we could find a connection)

Yep! Making the link to Promethea…I totally would not have been able to think of that myself!!

google is my ally, and sometimes the simplest answer is the right one.

And its totally a plausible one, i mean its literally a thing in the BL universe so Im quite confident you’ve made quite the find, and we have ourselves quite the case… good work detectives
