Beware right now. Not only are we dealing with Borderlands 2 spoilers, we’re also going into the ending to the film Se7en. If you haven’t seen Se7en, turn around and go watch it. We’ll still be here.

Ready? Because this difficult to find Easter Egg not only nets you a unique gun, but some more laughs at Handsome Jack’s expense. Like most of the Easter Eggs in Borderlands 2, this is a direct reference, and we’ve been finding a ton of cute call-backs on the Pop-Culture References article.

Where to Find the Se7en Easter Egg

  • Whenever you open a box, you have a small chance to see this special Easter Egg around the area described, and possibly only at night. We were able to discover it in The Dust, but it’s possible this Easter Egg will appear in other areas.
  • Inside the box, you’ll find a gun called “Neutralizing Gwen” and a female skull inside.
  • Just as it’s opened, Handsome Jack will exclaim; “What’s in the box? What’s in the box?”
  • In Se7en, at the climax of the film there’s a famous scene where Brad Pitt yells, “What’s in the box?” when he’s faced with a mysterious package. The gun’s name, “Neutralizing Gwen” is a reference to the actress Gwyneth Paltrow who plays Brad Pitt’s girlfriend.

    I feel the need to point out that “the box” isnt always there. I tried finding this earlier and it was not in the location Mitch said it was. After doing a bit of digging, I found that it can appear in any number of locations in the base and that its possible it only shows up at night.

    Point is, Mitch’s guide to the Se7vn reference is incomplete.

    Not always “Neutralizing Gwen”. I got “Incendiary Gwen’s Head”.
