    Michael Mamaril will give you ether a Blue/Purple/Legendary weapon he is located at random points around sanctuary.
    His spawn locations can be found here:
    It is best not to try to farm for Michael as you will most likely see him whilst roaming Sanctuary but if you do insist on farming him (from what I have read online) He has a 10% chance of spawning before Sanctuary is in the air and a 8% chance whilst in the air. When you do find him simply talk to him he will say something then hand you a weapon, pick up the weapon then BOOM achievement

    And for those who do not know Michael Mamaril was a Borderlands fan who unfortunately died at the age of 22 in October 2011 his friend Carlos sent Gearbox an email to ask that Claptrap (His favourite character) read a eulogy. Gearbox also promised that Michael would be in Borderlands 2 as a tribute
    R.I.P Michael Mamaril

    Ry FryyTried farming this for a while, gave up. Of course I found him soon after on a routine Sanctuary stroll.

    Between the slot machines and the bar counter inside Moxxi’s. Main game completed, level 39.

    DabimaThe 10% chance to spawn is complete BS. Maybe there is something wrong with my save file. Every time I’ve ever been to sanctuary on any of my three characters I have checked his spawn locations. After completing normal and true mode on my main and then overpower mode, and still not seeing him, I’ve resorted to checking his spawn locations 5+ times a day, depending on my patience that day, for several weeks, I’ve now checked his spawn locations at least a couple hundred times and have never once seen him

    z RagnaroK zJust found MM inside the building where Tannis is. I have completed the main story on normal and am level 41 currently. MM has a 10% chance of spawning after Sanctuary is off the ground and I've read that you must be level 30 in order for him to show up. Otherwise, start a new file and you'll have a much better chance of finding him.

    Watch a video of his locations if you must. He DOES show up eventually but there are many places he can show up at. Hope this helps.

    agent007AWFound him in Marcus Munitions. Spawned for me right in front of Marcus and it took me about 3-5 times to save and quit and reload into Sanctuary. Honestly they should've just made him a permanent character in Sanctuary, instead of the whole 8-10 percent thing.

    ZaBettsTook 14 attempts when grinding after Sanctuary is flying. I found this video helpful so I could check these exact spots quickly

    TheBiiigCheeezTook about 10 tries, but went back after several years off the game and he spawned in Moxxis bar... Save and quit, reload will eventually work...

    DJBringaThis one sucked. I attempted to find him at least 100 times after Sanctuary was in air. Then in true vault hunter mode I made my way back to Sanctuary (Before Sanctuary was flying) and I had to try about 15-20 more times and he eventually popped up in the area between Scooter's and Moxxi's
