Find the Minecraft Easter Egg

  • Hidden later in Borderlands 2, you’ll reach an area called the Caustic Caverns.
  • In the caverns, you’ll want to find train tracks in the northwest corner of the map; just keep checking your map and follow the tracks when you reach them.
  • The tracks will lead to a massive door. You’ll need to get around it to access this easter egg.
  • Turn right from the door, and jump over the Minecraft-esque cube blocks. Stick to the left wall and continue down the side path until you find actual Minecraft dirt blocks. Break through them with your melee attack to uncover the secret area.
  • It’s a Creeper! Defeat it to unlock Minecraft-inspired custom head and skin options. You may need to leave and come back multiple times to find all the Creeper has to drop.
  • Goodluck, and happy mining!

I have noticed that I have to exit to the title screen and enter the game again in order to get the creepers to respawn. Also, I have found a few really good class mod and weapon drops from the Badass Creeper and the blocks that look like coal or gold resource blocks drop $$ and ammo when you break them.

The Badass Creeper will also spawn random Yellow quality weapons. Like the “Longitudinal Longbow” sniper rifle that shoots flaming arrows and a shot gun that shoots a pixelated wall of fire. God I love Minecraft….er Borderlands…..yeah. :-D

I have found that there can be Eridium blocks that you can destroy as well, in addition to the gold and coal blocks.
