Major Kong - Description

The Legendary Launcher Major Kong is manufactured by COV and comes from the Borderlands 3 Psycho Krieg - DLC.

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

Shoots giant shotgun shells in an unpredictable trajectory that explode on enemy impact or stick to the impact area for 2 sec.
On explosion, it spawns additional homing shotgun shells for each nearby enemy.
All Shotgun Shells deal [weapon element] Splash Damage on explosion.

COV - Info

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.
