How to get the Yellowcake?:
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.

- 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.
