The "Fun with barrels" is an easter egg in Borderlands. It was discovered after Gearbox developers started posting hints, by user 'SenorGuacamole' on the Gearbox Forums.

The easter egg can be found with the following steps:

  1. Go to the secret dock in the southeast corner of Treacher's Landing, where the "You're on a boat!" achievement is obtained.
  2. Shoot the yellow barrel to the right of the dock.
  3. Shoot the green barrel in the distant trash pile east of the boat.
  4. Shoot any of the blue barrels on the boat.
  5. Shoot the red barrel in the water to the left of the boat.


  • The music that plays when Tannis appears is 'Snifty's Loading' by Raison Varner (Gearbox audio lead). It was originally going to be 'Nemo's Jam', also by Raison, a song that is still in the game.
  • If the game is paused while the rider of the "fish" is in view, Patricia Tannis can be seen. This was confirmed by SCole on the Gearbox Forums.
  • In Tales from the Borderlands , it is revealed that the fish ridden by Tannis is named Splorghuld the Flesh-Slayer. It is described as being 15 meters long, 4 meters thick, and having awful breath.
