To begin this Side Mission head over to the Bounty Board that’s conveniently located next to the The Droughts - Highway Fast Travel Point. After you’ve accepted the Mission head to the waypoint on the map. Once you’ve arrived, deal with the enemies in the area, and then head to the back of the area where a Caustic Badass Varkid will spawn. Keep your distance and take him out with caution, as his attacks can be very deadly.

After you’ve dealt with the Caustic Badass Varkid, make your way over to the trailer that’s located in the back right of the area and the Big Succ will be waiting for you.

Pick up cactus fruit / Collect Succulent skag meat

Now that you’ve got the Big Succ in your possession, head over to the new waypoint on the map where you’ll find the Cactis scattered around. In order to get the Cacti to drop it’s fruit, you’ll need to the use the Big Succ’s alternative fire mode, the Grenade Launcher.

Whilst you’re on your way around the desert getting the Cactus Fruits, Succulent Skag’s will try to bother you, take them out and they will drop their Succulent Skag Meat which is needed for the Optional Objective.

After you’ve collected all the Cactus Fruits and Succulent Skag Meat, you’ll need to take out the Succulent Alpha Skag which is hiding in a Cave nearby. Once you’ve entered the Cave take out the Succulent Skags first and then focus all your firepower into taking down the Alpha Skag, he’ll then drop his Succulent Alpha Skag Meat.

Before exiting the Cave and heading towards the next Objective, make sure you grab the White Chest that is sitting in the center.

Kill Mincemeat

(1 of 2) You’ll find Mincemeat roaming around the camp with Trufflemunch and Buttmunch by his side,

You’ll find Mincemeat roaming around the camp with Trufflemunch and Buttmunch by his side, (left), during your fight with Mincemeat he’ll do a ground slam which has a large AoE in front of him so be ready to dodge. (right)

Now that you’ve collected the Succulent Alpha Skag Meat, Chef Frank wants you to take out Mincemeat and his two companions Trufflemunch and Buttmunch. Head over to the waypoint on the map where you’ll find Mincemeat roaming around in the camp.

After Mincemeat has been slain, you’re going to need to deal with his pets. They aren’t too difficult to take down, but you need to be aware of their main attack, which is an elemental AoE. Buttmunch fires out radioactive puddles from his mouth and Trufflemunch does the same but with Corrosive instead.

Drop ingredients off

Once you’ve taken out Mincemeat and his two pets, head over to the waypoint on the map and deliver the ingredients to complete the Side Mission.
