If you’re a fan of Marvel’s The Avengers you’ll be sure to remember the now-famous meme where Cap is saying: “I understood that reference”. But what does that have to do with anything? Well, we’re talking about Easter Eggs and references in video games that the developers just love to hide. But did you find them and understand the reference? No, we’re not giving up EVERY little secret, just a few, to get you hooked and find the rest for yourself.

And while you’re hunting for Easter Eggs, you can still hunt for a discount. Though Easter Game Hunt Sale is ending soon, there is still time to snatch a game for a much lower price. 

Take a look at what discounts are crackin’. Hunt now!

And now, let’s uncover some secrets, shall we?


Depending on the mode you’re playing, Minecraft is full of Easter Eggs. If you choose the Building Mode, every creation could be considered an Easter Egg, from famous real-life structures to entire recreations of King’s Landing from Game of Thrones or Minas Tirith from The Lord of the Rings. Even you can build something that can become an Easter Egg. 

On the other hand, in the Survival mode, there are plenty of nods to popular films, like The Killer Bunny, famously known for butchering the whole group of knights in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. If you see him, run! Vindicator named Johnny will attack nearby mobs referencing the cult horror movie and novel The Shining. Meanwhile, naming animals with developer names will make them change colors. There are plenty of other nods to various games: Legend of Zelda, Mario, Pokemon, or Portal but we can’t tell you all the secrets, can we?

Just Cause 4

Just Cause 4 is booming with Easter Eggs, from a building playing A-ha’s Take on Me to a secret Lunar Base and Jurassic Park. But the best and the most ridiculous one can be found in a form of a weapon. In the Vaivenes (bottom left corner of the map) you’ll find a gun with a cow print pattern. Anyone shot with this weapon will turn into… a cow! Wait, that’s not all! The alternative shooting mode will turn Rico himself into a beautiful moo. If this reason is not enough to play Just Cause 4, we don’t know what is.


Fortnite could be a reference on its own with every new cosmetic item nodding to a pop culture phenomenon, from Marvel and DC superheroes, Rick and Morty to celebrities like Ariana Grande, Travis Scott, or Marshmello. But the Easter Eggs don’t end there. There are plenty of posters hidden around the environment nodding to the previous Epic Studios games. And did you know that every island is named after a Greek God? Yet, the best Easter Egg is the gravestones dedicated to competitive players killed in ridiculous ways.

In chapter two a player swam down the waterfall and missed the water below eliminating themselves. Now there’s a gravestone to commemorate that failure with a no swimming sign next to it. Who knows, maybe you’ll become a Fortnite legend too?

Aahh, Borderlands, yes, the game series that doesn’t take itself too seriously. In Borderlands 2 you can not only find a cave that is straight out of Minecraft, but you can also meet Lee, Dan, Ralph, and Mick – four humanoid rats living in the sewers who love pizza and are trained by their master Flinter. If you still don’t get it, that’s the reference to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, dude!

The Easter Eggs don’t end there. Each Borderlands game has a huge chunk of them, from Dark Souls to Pink Floyd. Knowing what kind of humor the developers have, there might be even more we still haven’t discovered. Wanna be the first?

GTA V, RDR 2, or any Rockstar game, really

Rockstar Games are the kings of Easter Eggs. Sometimes, they even get sued for it. Like Lindsay Lohan did for her lookalike in GTA V. Sometimes, Rockstar even makes fun of Easter Egg hunters. Remember when in San Andreas they wrote: “There are no Easter Eggs up here. Go away”? Yeah. And the still uncovered mystery of Mount Chiliad in GTA V, what was that all about? Maybe you’ll be the one to solve it?

The Red Dead Redemption games also have tons of Easter Eggs, from aliens, South Park’s ManBearPig, and The Hobbit house to whatever else knows what. The game’s world is so massive and detailed, that no one even knows if all the Easter Eggs have been discovered. Care to try?

Listen, we know there probably isn’t a game without Easter Eggs but we can’t name every game out there. Also, we wouldn’t want to spoil the fun of discovering the Easter Eggs for you. What we can do, is offer you a collection of games to get started. Moreover, for a lower price than you’ll find elsewhere. So, how about it? Ready to hunt?
