The Borderlands series is full of Easter eggs, memes, and references. If Borderlands 3 was going to contain a reference to any modern pop culture phenomenon, Rick and Morty is perhaps the most fitting, what with its edgy humor and violent, sci-fi setting. Indeed, there’s a Borderlands 3 Rick and Morty Easter egg, and finding it will get you a unique Legendary Rick and Morty shotgun. This Borderlands 3 Rick and Morty shotgun location guide will tell you just how to find it.
Borderlands 3 | Rick and Morty Shotgun location
To find the shotgun, head to Lectra City on Promethea. If you haven’t found Lectra City yet, you can get there by using the exit in the center of the Meridian Metroplex area’s map. Once you’re in the city, head to the northeast corner of the map. You’ll find a shipping container tucked into a corner, straight ahead of the large police station building. Two enemies called “Wick” and “Warty” will exit the container (though, according to YouTuber MrRoflWaffles, they seem to only appear about 50% of the time).
As you’d expect, Wick has Rick’s spiky blue hair, and Warty shares Morty’s short stature. A few different types of Warty enemies will spawn from Wick’s portals, similar to the multiple Morty characters seen in the show. The enemies’ voice lines also mimic the stuttering, improv-like dialogue of the characters they’re based on. Wick teleports around with a green, oblong portal like the ones Rick shoots with his portal gun in the show. Eventually, Wick will simply teleport away from the fight entirely, so you’ll have to make sure to kill them before then. Once you beat them, there’s a chance they’ll drop the Redundant Savvy Phebert shotgun.
Borderlands 3 | Rick and Morty Shotgun stats
The Redundant Savvy Phebert’s flavor text reads, “Faster than all estimates.” Its perks and stats seem to vary, but it’s not the hardest-hitting shotgun out there. The one MrRoflWaffles picked up had increased damage, increased critical hit rate, increased weapon accuracy, increased weapon shield capacity, and consumed two ammo per shot. As a Hyperian-brand weapon, the Redundant Savvy Phebert projects a shield in front of the player when aiming down sights. It also shoots green shots with effects similar to Wick’s portals.
