Michael Mamaril is an NPC in Sanctuary. He is noted for giving out blue or higher level loot as well as being part of the Tribute to A Vault Hunter achievement. Michael will have a new weapon to give every time the player travels to Sanctuary or reloads the game.


Michael can be found randomly at one of several spots around Sanctuary:

  • Near the newsstand in Sanctuary's main plaza
  • In an alley down the street from the front entrance to Moxxi's
  • In Marcus' weapons shop
  • Near Claptrap's location, at the end of the street and in front of a building


  • The NPC shares his name with a Borderlands fan that passed away in October 2011. Mamaril's friend sent Gearbox an email requesting that a short eulogy be read by Claptrap in order to honor his late friend's memory. Gearbox also promised to include Mamaril in Borderlands 2 as a tribute to the late Borderlands fan.
