How to unlock the Tribute To A Vault Hunter trophy

    Michael Mamaril is an NPC who spends his days roaming Sanctuary giving out free gear and guns to vault hunters! Once you reach Sanctuary, he will be in one of ten random spots so you may have to play hide and seek. He may not give you something every time you approach him, but when he does, it is usually fairly decent stuff. Also note that if you are in a party, only ONE person will receive something from him at a time, not the whole group so you may have to dashboard, save, repeat if you are in a party.
    Below is a description of the areas he can spawn at

    In the back room to the right, next to the jukebox.
    Next to the slot machines.

    From the Sanctuary entrance, head up the right staircase and immediately turn right.

    Scooter's Garage
    Bottom level on the right side, under the stairs.

    Marcus Gunshop
    Bottom of the stairs.

    On the corner, by the front door of the black market.
    (opposite Moxxi's side entrance)

    Dr. Zed's
    Dead center of the room.

    Crimson Raiders HQ
    Upon entering, directly in front of you, between the stairs and Tannis's workshop.

    Town Center
    Opposite Paradise Station, next to the newspaper stand.

    ClapTrap's Hideout
    Top of the staircase, on the left.

    AmorousAardvarkSheer fluke for me this time round. On my second visit to Sanctuary he was hanging around in the alleyway heading up to Moxxi's. Took me nearly the whole game to find him on the PS3.

    MMT2313I've been playing this game on the PS4. On the first time through the game, before they updated it, chances of finding him were at 100%, so I easily found him hanging out at the Crimson Raiders headquarters, between the steps and Tannis's workshop. If you have this game by this point, the game has been patched to the latest update, so there's a 10% percent of finding him. My advice is to start the game, check out all the spots in Sanctuary. if he is not there, exit the game, reload, rinse, wash, and repeat until he found. It could take a whole day or a month, but he shouldn't be hard to spot. Once he gives you a weapon and you take it from him, it should unlock.

    GampxSIf anyone didnt know this - it's a tribute to a passed away Borderlands fan named Michael Mamaril (1989-2011).

    BurkiemeisterI would recommend to get this before Sanctuary lifts off.
    I seem to remember reading this somewhere a long time ago.
    First playthrough, I visited Sanctuary so many times looking for him, without success.
    Second playthrough, on true vault hunter mode, he popped up second visit, in Scooters place.
