“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
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.
