Steps to get Yellowcake in Borderlands 3

The weapon can be acquired by defeating Tyrone Smallums, FISH SLAP!, or Joey Ultraviolet. You must beat any one of these bosses by going into the Revenge of the Cartels event. It’s not guaranteed that you’ll get the Yellowcake by defeating a single boss. Thus, you have to be prepared to take on all three bosses in the Revenge of the Cartels event.

First off, you need to start the quest by finding Maurice in Sanctuary. He will provide you with the quest to kill the three bosses in the game. To get to Maurice, you’ll need to collect 30 pieces of intel. This can be acquired by killing the glowing enemies who drop beacons. In turn, the beacons make the Cartel mobs spawn. The Cartel enemies will drop intel that you must collect. After collecting 30 intel pieces, you can exchange them to gain access to the portal by Maurice.

Maurice will give you the quest to kill the three bosses. They spawn at random locations of the map. Thus, you need to be extra cautious not to skip any area. Make sure to have a good build in order to beat the bosses especially Joey Ultraviolet. Once you’re done with the three bosses, you should now have access to the Yellowcake in Borderlands 3.


The Yellowcake in Borderlands 3 fires a single orb that splits into multiple exploding orbs and deals an insane amount of damage to enemies. Moreover, it’s a CoV launcher that will allow you to shoot several rounds without a break. Although, it’s worth noting that the Yellowcake in Borderlands 3 should mainly be used for close to medium range fight. This is because the orbs drop to the ground fairly quickly. That brings us to the end of this guide.
