Just like past installments, Borderlands 3 is brimming with easter eggs and one of them references the hit fantasy drama television series, Game of Thrones.
Instead of the Mother of Dragons, you’ll be facing off against the Mother of Grogans. She’ll be accompanied by her three dragon-like Rakks that love to rain down fire whenever someone threatens their mother. To find this Game of Thrones easter egg in Borderlands 3, you’ll have to make your way to Eden-6.
When on the planet, head to a section called The Anvil and right into a sewer system called West of Gross — an obvious play on Westeros. There’s a room here with a chest at the very end. However, be careful because opening it will cause the imposter queen to enter from the back along with her fire-breathing Rakks.
Take note that the Games of Thrones easter egg is not tied to any quest in Borderlands 3. It’s merely there for players (and fans) to find and connect the dots. Also, defeating the Mother of Grogans and her Rakks will not drop any legendary items. Hence, don’t raise any expectations for looting uniques.
In a rare case where opening the chest doesn’t trigger the encounter, you will have to leave the area and come back for another try.
This is not the first time that Gearbox Software has went for a Game of Thrones easter egg in the franchise. Borderlands 2 had something similar where you could defeat a dire-skag named Ghost, a reference to Jon Snow’s direwolf from the television show.
Borderlands 3 is out now on all major platforms with a slew of performance issues. The problems are not that widespread but chances are that if you’re playing the game right now, you must have noticed the frame-rate dropping at intervals. Gearbox Software is probably working on a patch right now to get some stability. Suffice to say, Borderlands 3 could have released in a much better state.
