Battlefield: Hardline – The Simpsons Pink Donuts Easter Egg
The very recent reveal of Battlefield: Hardline hasn’t stopped enterprising early players from spotting Easter eggs this quickly in the media cycle. The distinctive pink box of donuts from television’s #1 animated family makes an appearance in EA’s cops versus robbers sequel, with an additional hilarious wrinkle. We’re just as surprised as you, but this is the real deal.
Secret jokes and references are common in DICE’s shooters, and we’re always happy to hunt them down here on GameFront. In one of the latest DLC packs, players could summon megalodon in Battlefield 4 while a hidden tribute to veterans appears in Battlefield 3. We’re just going to assume this is just the start for Hardline.
Simpsons Pink Donuts Easter Egg
On the High Tension map, if you spawn into the main Police Station garage, you’ll find a familiar box next to the police cruiser spawn point.
Pink donut boxes? Fans of The Simpsons will recognize these distinctive containers. They’re a regular sight in Homer’s Nuclear Power Plant break room, but more importantly, they’re a favorite of the bumbling cop Chief Wiggum.
While looking at the boxes, press [Q] to call out the donuts. Your heroic officer will shout “Donut spotted!”
For those unfamiliar with common cop stereotypes, doughnuts are typically associated with fat lazy slobs. Being archetypes for fat lazy slobs everywhere, Homer and Chief Wiggum are naturally the biggest fans of the doughy treats.
