How Major Kong Works in Borderlands 3

The Major Kong is an amazing rocket launcher. When you charge the weapon, it gains increased damage, but increased ammo cost as well. 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 projectiles for each nearby enemy. All Shotgun Shells deal elemental Splash Damage on explosion [depending on the weapon’s element]. The Major Kong can come in all the elements, and also in x1, x2 variants. Now let's see the specifications of the weapon and then I will tell you how to get Major Kong in Borderlands 3.

How to Get Major Kong in Borderlands 3

In order to get the weapon, you can play on Mayhem Level or without it at all. You want to finish the main mission from Fantastic Flustercluck DLC called “Locus of Rage”.

After you beat this mission, you will be able to come back to this map and farm Psychoreaver for this COV Rocket Launcher. His bar is health only, so any fire weapon should help you beat the boss. Be aware, that he is a very tanky enemy, and comes in two phases. The first one takes place on the arena with pillars around, and in the second one, he becomes bigger and backs away a little. Avoid his huge mace attacks and aim for the head for those juicy critical hits. After that, there is a 15% chance that he will drop the Major Kong Rocket Launcher.

It has a low drop chance, especially if you are looking for a specific anointment. However, on April 8th, we got a new patch to Borderlands 3 and you are able to reroll anointments on weapons for the right price [250 eridium]. It might make farming for the perfect Rebound a lot easier, but you definitely know everything you need on now how to get Rebound in Borderlands 3.

Is Major Kong Worth the Effort?

Definitely yes. It is one of the best Children of The Vault Rocket Launchers in the game. It has a purple variant called Minor Kong, but the Major Kong is definitely the best option. It is very versatile for any build and can help you get up from Fight for Your Life pretty quickly. Hopefully, after this article, you know exactly how to get Major Kong in Borderlands 3.

Borderlands 3 is out now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One X/S, and Xbox Series X/S.
