    Killed Donkey Mong.

How to Find the Donkey Kong Easter Egg

  • To unlock the achievement, and discover the rare monster named Donkey Mong (an riff on Nintendo’s Donkey Kong) you’ll need to find him first.
  • You’ll need to reach the Eridium Blight. Be sure that you’re high enough level to easily handle the monsters there, as you’ll need to fight the more-difficult Donkey Mong.
  • Go to the southwest corner of the map, you’ll pass through a Hyperion gate on the way. Turn right off the path as you pass through the gate and up the hall.
  • Check out the hills with lots of Bullymongs and Rakts. There’s a chance Donkey Mong will randomly appear.
  • He’s a rare Mong. If he doesn’t appear, simply save and quit, then try again.
  • Like his namesake, Donkey Mong loves to throw the barrels on his back. Goodluck!
