About the Mother Too:

The Mother Too is a Legendary Weapon in Borderlands 3. This Tediore SMG shoots a continuous laser beam. When you reload this weapon, you will throw a drone into the combat field. It will start homing into an enemy and starts chasing it. While the drone is airborne it will shoot a continuous laser downwards to the surface. Giving it a massive potential to score critical hits. The drone’s damage output won’t increase by prematurely reloading.


Physical Damage is useful against everything. It has no special properties but also does not suffer weaknesses.

Fire damage is strong against Flesh and can cause targets to burn. Burning deals high damage over a 5-second duration.

Corrosive damage is strong against Armor and causes targets to melt. Melting deals high damage over a 7-second duration.

Shock damage is strong against Shields and causes targets to be electrocuted. Electrocution deals very high damage over a 3-second duration.

Cryo damage slows enemies and eventually freezing them. Cryo efficiency is the percentage of damage dealt that is applied as Cryo, at 100% efficiency, enemies will freeze at 20% health. Frozen enemies are unable to move and take 3x Melee damage.

Radiation damage can cause targets to become Irradiated. Irradiated enemies deal Aura Damage to nearby enemies for 8 seconds. If an Irradiated enemy dies, they explode, Irradiating any enemies damaged by the explosion.

Where to get the Mother Too?

The Mother Too has a 33% chance of dropping from Slithermaw who is located in The Blastplains on Gehenna. But this weapon can also ‘World Drop’ in the Bounty of Blood DLC.

Where can I find Slithermaw?

Slithermaw can be found in The Blastplains on Gehenna. It’s part of the ‘Skin to Win’ Crew Challenge. The Devs intended that you can only reach this place when having access to the Tellezapper teleport system in order to get to this Named Enemy. However, manteling the wall or jumping from the neigboring cliff gives you easy access.Slithermaw Spawn Location - Borderlands 3 Bounty of Blood
