Borderlands 3 Legendary Launcher - Yellowcake

About the Yellowcake:

The Yellowcake is a Legendary weapon in Borderlands 3. This COV Launcher shoots a projectile that splits into 4 balls that have some drop-off and explode on impact. The explosions have a high splash radius.



Special Weapon Effect:

“I’m really more of a pie person.”

  • Projectile split into multiple projectiles after a set distance.
  • High Splash Damage.

How to get the Yellowcake?:

The Yellowcake is a Revenge of the Cartels Legendary. You can get it from FISH SLAP!!!, Tyrone Smallums, and Joey Ultraviolet in Villa Ultraviolet during the Revenge of the Cartels Event.

Was the Yellowcake Nerfed?

Yes, it was extremely overpowered because GBX applied the wrong scaling math.

Is the Yellowcake still good?

Definitely, the Yellowcake is still a beast! You still want to hit your target as the projectile splits.


  • June 11th, 2020
    • Changed Damage Scaling – The wrong scaling math was applying to the Yellowcake, greatly increasing its damage beyond its intended value.  We are changing it to use intended math.
    • Split Projectile Damage Decrease – We are lowering the damage of each of its split projectiles as they were overperforming as well.
