    Killed 10 Spybugs before they took you photo.

    Area: The Nexus. I'm not entirely sure how early you can do this in this area, but I had the entire DLC and sidequests finished. The area in the video spawns two variants of the robot, named Spambot and Spyware. Spyware is the one you're after, but the spawn rate is significantly lower. I got lucky spawning two of them here. Reload the area if they're not there or after you've killed them. Once you kill 10 named Spyware without them "taking your photo" via the white beam they emit, the achievement will unlock.

    EggChrisTThey spawn up top too. Instead of going over the side onto multiple platforms, you can just drop down like this and be right at the ones that spawn at the bottom.

    Dragonborn GearIt should be worth noting that you can just bring your imported character over from the 360 who has gotten the achievement already and then kill a spy bug (in the location in the guide). You will unlock the achievement after one spybug kill.

    Xenolith666No idea how it happened.. but all the "spy bugs" were invisible to me.. I would see them spawn briefly and they would just vanish.. I could still see the red dots on the mini map and would just aim where I thought they were. They couldn't take pictures of me either.. so I guess it worked out in the end.

    Kanchanaburithis is my first run, and for me they are called adbugs. I don't have any spybugs.

    Chris HirschyIf you have an imported character and you had already killed 10 spybots, this achievement pops after the first kill. I can confirm this

    z RagnaroK zI'm not sure why you think spam bots count but I can 100% guarantee that they don't count towards the achievement. I've finished the main story in the DLC and get spy bots to appear rarely. I've killed over 20 spam bots and not achievement.

    Dragonborn GearRagnarok, no where in the guide nor comments does anyone say that spam bots count. The guide mentions spam bots to say only that they exist, but you're looking for the "spy" bots/bugs/ware etc.

    Worked perfectly. Just keep jumping and dodging the spinning laser walls. Wilhelm action skill took care of any random Spyware bots that appeared. Took about 15 minutes for me. Died a few times but you spawn right next to the room. Jump straight back in and continue.
    As long as you don't destroy all of the generators, the flying type of bugs will keep spawning.

    It is part of the 'File Search' quest in the Claptrap DLC.

    PainkillerJTLAdbugs and Spybugs are what they are called on normal difficulty. You need Spybugs for the achievement to unlock (unless you are playing a higher difficulty, see below).

    Spambot and Spyware are what they are called on True Vault Hunter Mode difficulty. You need Spyware for the achievement to unlock (unless you are playing on normal difficulty, see above).
