Star Wars Battlefront contains a fantastic reference to Star Wars Episode IV, in which a Stormtrooper bonks his head in a mission's opening cutscene.

Star Wars Battlefront has certainly captured the sights and sounds of the Star Wars universe, but it also contains clever little references to the movies.

A newly discovered Easter egg pays tribute to one particularly clumsy Stormtrooper from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Keep an eye on the background in the opening cutscene in the Overpower training mission.

The footage was captured by the eagle-eyed folks at GamesRadar. You can also see it zoomed in and slowed down to show that, yes, DICE knew exactly what it was doing.

Tatooine also contains live-action footage of the infamous Tuskan Raiders. And once you hear the Wilhelm scream, you’ll never be able to unhear it.

Star Wars Battlefront is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
