Vampires, drowners, ghosts, ghouls, werewolves, dragons. These are just a few of the many deadly creatures that call the world of The Witcher 3 home.
All those beasts fail in comparison to the killer rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a ferocious fluffball capable of ripping men's heads clean off their shoulders in a single bite. It appears that creature now calls Geralt's world home, and nobody will ever be safe again.
This Easter egg comes from Reddit user KylosProdigy, who recently discovered the beast while exploring the CD Projekt Red's massive open-world RPG. At first glance, it would appear to be nothing more than a white rabbit, but it's the rabbit's surroundings that make clear that this is no ordinary snow hare.
For starters, there is blood everywhere. Also skeletons ... and skulls. It's worth taking note of the damp, dark cave as well, the place the killer likely calls home. It matches up almost perfectly with the killer rabbit's lair in the Monty Python and the Holy Grail film.
Sure, it's possible a lone rabbit that just so happens to look like the one from the film simply wandered near a particularly dangerous-looking cave that also looks like the one from the film. It's possible it just decided to stand there for fun. It could, possibly, be just a perfectly normal white rabbit that has found itself in a compromising position.
However, do you really want to take that chance? Geralt can craft many different types of poisons, oils and bombs, but he can't, to our knowledge, create a Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch. Without it, Geralt's blades might as well be Nerf swords. If you happen to stumble upon this Easter egg yourself (and it looks like several players have in the year since the game's release), best run for cover. There's no telling of what the savage beast is capable.
In other The Witcher 3 news, the game's latest update will be coming soon and will make completing your Gwent card collection far easier. You can read more about that here.
