Yellowcake - Description

The Legendary Launcher Yellowcake is manufactured by COV and comes from the Borderlands 3 Revenge of the Cartels - Event.

Fires energy orbs in an arching trajectory that explode on impact and deal Radiation Splash Damage.
The orb(s) will split into 2 at a set distance. Each orb will again split into 2.
In total 4 orbs or 8 orbs with the Moar Prefix.
Each Split causes an explosion that deals Radiation Splash Damage.

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.
