Where is Michael Mamaril?

In tribute to a Borderlands fan by the real name of Michael Mamaril who died from cancer at a young age, Gearbox immortalized him as an NPC vault hunter who offers you guns to help you out (source). The “Tribute to a Vault Hunter” achievement triggers upon finding him.

I haven’t been able to find him in Sanctuary in single or multiplayer. I’ve completed multiple story missions and still cannot find him. Is there some trick to when he begins to show up in Sanctuary? I know he hangs around in many different spots—are they random or predictable?


Michael Mamaril can be found in the Sanctuary (you don’t need any quest requirement for him,he starts showing as soon you get in Sanctuary).

There is a chance he will “spawn” in one of his spawn locations (i personally found him twice next to the Hostel door) in Sanctuary everytime you come to the town.

Additional info:

  • Michael Mamaril will give you a blue weapon or item when you talk to him
  • The items he gives you are scaled to your level
  • You can constantly leave and re-enter town via fast-travel to reset his spawning and therefore farm free items from him
  • In the unpatched console versions, Michael has a 100% spawn chance before Sanctuary is relocated
  • His spawn chance on PC and on patched console version is always 10%
