Michael Mamaril/Jimmy Jenkins on V 1.02

I purchased the PSN edition of BLands2 with all DLC and noticed that I do not have the option to remove the patch. Its bundled into the game, forced patch I suppose.

 

I still deleted Captain Scarlett to give it a shot and its still V1.02, thinking it might be bundled with the DLC

 

My wife has the game on Xbox360 and has both of these characters found.

She is unpatched since gold had expired. She found Michael several times in scooters and also while being in wildlife preservation she remembers being overwhelmed when opening the boxes to get the echo for Tannis. Hence she found Jimmy there. She got him 1st try and remembers 3 or 4 robots at that point.

 

Ive been doing this for 3 days with no luck.

 

I can confirm this:

 

1. 2 playthrus/2 characters and still no Michael before Sanctuary flies away

2. I have gotten my 2nd character to the point of accepting "Doctors Orders" and am on split screen with 1st character as well. Not a single robot comes out of the boxes where the second echo is located.

 

Im at a loss and have no idea what to do. I have done maybe 30 Opportunity runs-50 W.Preservation runs and have seen 2 mini robots. thats all..No Michael and no Jimmy.

 

Do I really have to buy a used copy in order to find these 2 characters and dont patch it? I understand the whole "rare spawn" thing but 3 days, 20+ hours of just this seems strange to me when my wife had gotten them both, 1st playthru, unpatched.

 

Its really dissappointing and has completely taken the wind out of my sails. All I can suggest if V 1.02 is the culprit which Im thinking it is.............buy the disc version and dont patch. Any ideas knowing I have a forced patch?

Jimmy hasn't been patched in any way.. It's a rare spawn.

 

As for Michael, keep trying. He has a 10% chance or so to spawn. (Before the patch there was a bug that caused him to spawn 100% of the time before Sanctuary flies off.)

 

rare spawn or not, no Minis, at all, are exiting the cardboard boxes in W.Preservation

 

ppl are guaranteeing Minis there and im saying in V 1.02 its spawning ZERO

Loot midgets are rare spawns too, but not as rare as Jenkins. They haven't patched anything regarding Loot midgets/Jenkins.

 

You can always try the Oppertunity or Thousand Cuts method.

Give the controller to your wife. She clearly know's what she's doing. :p

 

Hahahaha... Hysterical.

 

I'm not laughing at the situation because I'm in the same boat my friend but that joke was very witty. I wish my girlfriend knew what she was doing. I'd give her the controller in 2 seconds if it meant finding good ol' Jimmy J

She most likely had Doctor's Orders quest active. Loot midgets are 100% spawn when that quest is active. I got JJ to spawn in my second run and got 2 of them. Yday, while farming for a friend, we ended up doing 20+ runs before he spawned.

 

As for MM, just keep looking and then save quit [or go to another area and come back]. He's easier to get than JJ.

I also had no luck with the doctors orders quest, however I got Jenkins in Thousand Cuts running from the Hyperion laser wall place to the bunker. I had up to 5 midgets spawning per run... though I should note it took several hours to locate him, but at least I knew I was getting a shot for Jenkins to spawn multiple times.

For MM make sure you search EVERY single place that he can spawn EVERY time your in Sanctuary and you will find him at some point before reaching Level 50 and completing your 2nd Playthrough. You can bet that the time you didn't look is the time he was there somewhere as its sods law!

Want to just get him done and out of the way tho then after searching quit to the main menu and then continue game again and circle Sanctuary searching every area again. With a 10% chance It should only take a dozen runs at least but it's very quick to run and look in every area then start again so you can even do more runs in no time at all if your that unlucky.

 

As for Jimmy I would say read the thread on how to do it in the Wildlife preserve on this forum and then read it again and again to make sure you do it 100% the way it is described.

If you mess it up then your back to the very low odds again and may as well farm places like Opportunity or Thousand Cuts instead.

I messed on on PT1 and got nothing after farming a few times so just moved on and made sure to be very careful to do the method right on PT2. He then popped 1st time and as I have kept it active he has popped a few other times as well when going through to farm Son of Mothrakk.

 

Good luck anyway and if your still struggling after doing that then repost and I am sure someone from here will help out.

Fuck you! ROFL

 

me and the wife both are cracking up over your comment.

 

Ok

 

My game is FUCKED, let me explain

 

I have a 2nd character, lvl 20 commando, ON Doctors quest (Active). I get to the cardboard boxes like in all the videos. Salvador lvl 42 and needs jimmy for gold joins. lvl 20 commando, who only has the 1st echo picked up, opens 4 cardboard boxes and guess what?

 

Ammo, Ammo, Ammo, Ammo

 

A friend on my friends list spawned him/invited me and we killed him! TY DividedbyNight!. It was my last challenge for gold.

 

No trophy for that,exited his game and went back to my game, finished ANOTHER challenge which is sugested/NADA, Zip, Jack Shit...............MY GAME IS BUGGED

 

Oh well. LoL

 

Got Michael by deleting all 6 gigs/refusing patch/Son of a bitch was playing with himself in sanctuary in a corner.

 

The life of a trophy hunter is one of disappointment and letdowns

Jimmy only spawns in Hyperion areas...I tried the wildlife route several times only to find him in an ammo box on my way up to The Bunker (in thousand cuts behind the hyperion wall of death that claptrap deactivates) and I know a guy that found him in Opportunity...so my best advice is to not focus on wildlife preserve only...

Double check you have actually done all the other challenges that are required.

I also thought I had and that it may have glitched as no Trophy. Then when checking carefully I realised I had not completed the rocket launcher one to level 5 so as to unlock the other hidden rocket launcher challenge. The thing is I knew about the hidden challenges and was sure I had unlocked them all but had somehow missed one.

It's worth a double check anyway.

Not True!!!!! I've followed the videos to the letter and lootmidgets barley spawn 1/10 ....definitely not 100%

 

P.S - wish my missus loved gaming, ive done all this while getting grief for spending more time with my ps3 than her !!!

Thanks for the input everyone.

 

All challenges are now complete and have 2 trophies left for plat.

Level 50 and Zeros cloak for 10 secs

 

Itll be easy since I have Tiny tinas party active on TVHM and Ill bring zero in as second controller.

 

As for Jimmy Jenkins. Its weird, alot of people aree reporting that they cant get the loaders to appear from those boxes. I for one can attest to it not working, at all. Others say the same. Then there are people like the youtube videos and people on these forums saying its 3/4 boxes! Somethings not right.

 

I asked a friend on my list if he had trouble finding him. He said, "Ill invite you in a minute". Sure as hell I get an invite and its in Wildlife Preserve and there is that little shit Jimmy Jenkins staring me in the face.

 

Couldnt believe it. Like others my friend is able to get those loaders to pop ALL the time. I could never get them to appear. Regardless its out of the way but not everyone is able to get them to spawn, not sure why.

 

As for my misses playing, yes its a blessing because in 4 years shes never said squat about me playing. It started out as both playing on 2 PS3s and we would boost, share games and it was cool.

 

But heres the catch, she asked for a 360...........now shes on that all the time and yes were now buying the same freaking games on 2 systems. Whatever, shes my wife how can I say no to a gamer wife? Since her gold expired (lame xbox sub) she wasnt able to patch her game. I was pissed when she found Michael and Jimmy in 1 playthru and I spent DAYS farming these 2! Matter of fact her EXACT words were "Baby, it was chaos in that room! Loaders EVERYWHERE! I was heated. I couldnt replicate it no matter how hard I tried!

 

I know people keep saying, the patch only did this or only did that and Im sure they know what they are talking about but I couldnt find Michael until I deleted 6gigs of game and dlc and then he appeared.........soooooooo even if im wrong I know what I know and I know that he was nowhere to be found until I was on V 1.0. Thats with 3 characters too.

Glad I looked at this thread, cuz I was wondering what happened to him. I noticed he was always around, then once Sanctuary took off, I could hardly find him. Now, since the update, I haven't found him once. I wonder if the game is punishing me for getting so much from him in the beginning? :think:
