Head to the Lair of Infinite Agony and you can find a mission called 'The Amulet'. This is given to you by an NPC known as Mr. Miz. There are reports of Mr. Miz not being in the Lair* (though for me he appeared the first time entering just after beating this DLC story and before the Raid Boss). Just exit and re-enter the area and he may spawn. If you see a yellow exclamation point, check it out.
Players have reported seeing him before finishing the story, so once you come across this area it can be done at any time.

Accept the mission and you'll have the option to buy the amulet or punch him. You must have at bare minimum 125k cash to buy it in Normal mode. TVHM the cost is around 850k. If you're on UVHM it will cost you anywhere from 3.3 million to 13 million (at level 72). Overall if you are wealthy you will be fine. After you buy the amulet the achievement will unlock once you equip it.

If you punch him,
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Alternatively, if you accidently punch him or are short on cash, you can get the amulet from a friend by trade/drop. Just make sure you're the required level to wield it.

*According to the Borderlands Wiki, Mr. Miz is confirmed to be a random spawning NPC.

DoPeY5007 I punched him as well, might need to obtain this from a different character.

Raiderhorn You can maybe try out another playthrough, if not then another character will surely work.

Helmaroc Figure you might wanna mention that in TVHM, the amulet is around $830,000. I got so lucky with this though, as I punched him, and handed in the mission, and then realized that this was achievement related, dashboarded, and the mission was back when I continued.

Raiderhorn @Helmaroc Haha very nice my friend. I will add that in. Thanks!

MailOrderCowb0y Do you have to be level 61 / in TVHM mode to find this guy?

EaglesFan520 This doesn't have anything to do with unlocking the achievement, but does anyone know what this amulet does? It says friendship+7

Raiderhorn @MailOrderCowb0y Doesn't matter.
@EaglesFan520 There's lots of controversy going around about the Friendship stat. I am convinced from many reports (and from personal experience) it increases the buffs from the Pixies. One thing it definitely does is it gives the players a sparkly trail of hearts and such. The more people that have it equipped, the more powerful the trail. People have also said you get generally more loot, although it is unconfirmed. I've also seen a post that says it will add more points on the Dice Roll chests to net you a higher number, which means better loot. And lastly I saw a post that said the enemies had a tendency to fight each other. People are thinking its just a troll relic and we won't ever know what it does. It bugs the hell out of me :P

spacedvest2 If you did what I did and punched Miz, I just figured out the amulet is tradeable. So just have a friend who has the amulet trade and give you the amulet. Once you equip it, the achievement unlocks.

Raiderhorn @sapcedvest2 I'll add the note of it being tradeable and just to be careful to have the required level to wield it. Thanks!

A Batwoman I found this video helpful might wanna put it in this soultion:

As well as:
1. Travel to Different area if it doesn't show up. (Exp: Tundra Express or Sanctuary)
2. Then once in the different area SAVE AND QUIT THEN DASHBOARD.
3. Travel back to "Lair of Infinite Agony"
4. He should be there with a "!" in the middle of the map if not rinse and repeat.

I think this side quest is glitched due to the fact that a million flaming skulls pop out of no where and attack you.
Posted by A Batwoman on 08 Jul 13 at 16:37
Wynnloss Nope, not glitched. Those skulls were there as part of the main storyline, just gotta beat 'em and find the Miz. Anyone who doesn't wanna do this, I'm willing to trade it for ANY purple Gunzerker class mod so I can finish the decked out achievement… message me on Live.

Onsidic If you do punch him by accident, you can still get an amulet for him. He will randomly spawn in the same place (no ! though) and will act as a vendor that you can buy the amulet from.
To get the achievement make sure you equip amulet for it to pop

ARCHER MIKE miz was there my first time thru but i did not click on him because i was working on something else. when i came back the next day he was gone so i went back and forth to sanctuary 3 or 4 times until the exclamation showed up on the map again. because i already cleaned out this map, it only took a few minutes to run from the teleport to miz.

Stryker DC 007 I fast traveled to Dragon Keep and took the elevator down. First try and he was there.

CxHxUxD I had no $$$ at all in my first playthrough, I don't know if this is from playing solo or what but it was a terrible run for sure.. I can never get a good shield and I think I need some pals to hook me up
