Borderlands 3 – How to get Fish Slap

Fish Slap – Grenade Description

Fish Slap is a Grenade of the Legendary or Orange rarity in Borderlands 3. The grenade arrived in Borderlands 3 with the new event called Revenge of the Cartels and is probably the most unique grenade in the game at the moment. I can already see Fish Slap being a part of some really powerful builds so you should definitely farm for it. The Revenge of the Cartels update has brought some really insane Legendaries to be honest. We have already covered the overpowered Monarch, Kaoson, O.P.Q. System, Sand Hawk and the Yellowcake, you can check them out if you want.

So what is so special about the Fish Slap? Well, apart from the fact that it looks like a fish, the Fish Slap’s damage is 100% melee damage. If you have been playing the game for long enough then you should know that the game already has a weapon called Face Puncher that deals melee damage. And these weapons that deal melee damage allow for really overpowered Amara builds. Also, there are certain artifacts or shields like the Ward in Borderlands 3 that increase your melee damage by up to 300%. So you can already imagine the possibilities.

Lets take a look at the description of the Fish Slap. The one shown here is an Anointed version called the Converging Fish Slap (Level 57):

  • Manufacturer : Pangolin
  • Damage : 16634
  • Radius : 149
  • Rubberized
  • Fish
  • Link
  • Generator
  • Red Text : Say hello to my little fish!

Fish Slap – Drop Location

The good thing about this grenade is that everyone who has the base Borderlands 3 game can farm for this. The Revenge of the Cartels is a free event and you do not need any DLC or Season Pass to play it. With that being said, he are locations where you can farm for the Fish Slap:

Joey Ultraviolet

The Yellowcake can easily be farmed inside the Villa Ultraviolet. You will obviously have to unlock the Villa Ultraviolet by progressing in the Revenge of the Cartels event. You can get this weapon as drop from the new boss called Joey Ultraviolet. Joey Ultraviolet can be found at the end of the Villa Ultraviolet. I was playing the game at Mayhem 6 difficulty of Mayhem 2.0 and I got only one from him after farming him more than 20 times.

Tyrone Smallums

You can also get the Fish Slap as a drop from Tyrone Smallums. The drop chance is pretty low though. I was playing the game at Mayhem 6 level when I got my Fish Slap from Tyrone Smallums. You can easily find Tyrone Smallums at Athenas (He can actually spawn anywhere). Just keep on eliminating Cartel enemies there and eventually he will spawn.

Here is a video of Tyrone Smallums dropping the Fish Slap:

Fish Slap!!!

You can also get the Fish Slap from Fish Slap!!! (Trust me, that sounded better in my head). You can easily find Fish Slap!!! in Villa Ultraviolet. Fish Slap!!! is a mini boss that spawns beside Joey Ultraviolet.
