Major Kong - Details

Major Kong (Launcher-BL3)

Major Kong - Description

Charge up the weapon for increased damage, but with increased ammo cost.

Shoots giant shotgun shells in an unpredictable trajectory that explodes on enemy impact or sticks to the impact area for 2 sec.
On explosion, it spawns homing shotgun shells for each nearby enemy.

COV - Manufacturer Description

Children of the Vault (COV) Weapons behave differently to regular weapons.

  • They need to be started up before you can shoot with them.
  • Ammo is directly consumed from the player's Ammo Pool.
  • Each shot builds up heat which leads to Overheating.
    Shots to Break on the Weapon Card is impacted the same ways Magazine Size is.
  • Heat dissipates when the Weapon isn't fired for a couple of seconds and can prevent Overheating.
  • When the Weapon Overheats it needs to be Repaired.
    The Repair Time on the Weapon card is impacted in the same ways Reload Time is.

In Borderlands 3 Quest Reward Items are rewarded after or during a quest. After the quest is completed there are 2 ways to farm Base Game items:

  • Eridian Fabricator
    On the Legendary firing mode, the Eridian Fabricator occasionally drops quest reward items from Base Game.
  • Crazy Earl's Veteran Rewards machine in Sanctuary has one Quest Reward Item from the Base game as the Item of the day.

DLC quest items can't be farmed by these methods.

Quest Reward Items in Borderlands 2 can be farmed on PC by Read-Only farming.

How to Read-Only farm:

  1. Go to the location where you hand in the quest.
  2. Save the game by toggling your Badass Rank on/off.
  3. Then go into the file explorer on your computer. Go to the file path:
    C:\Users\NAME\Documents\My Games\Borderlands 2\WillowGame\SaveData
  4. Go to your most recent Save File (.sav) and:
    right-clickproperties
  5. Under General tick the Read-only box.
  6. Back in-game and hand in the quest.
  7. Exit to the main menu, then back into the game.
  8. Now you will be able to hand in the quest again.

Tip:
Store the items in Claptrap's Secret Stash.
This way you can get the quest reward items multiple times since they are saved on a different SaveFile.

Quest Items are items that are only used during a quest. They adapt to your level.
After the quest is completed the item is removed from your inventory.
If you want to keep the item you can't finish the quest.
