Default Every once in a while, a goliath gets a good idea...

http://i.imgur.com/F7ASA.jpg

So, this has been "undiscovered" for the longest time and it's kind of bothering me for a few reasons. First reason being, I've been doing every side quest up to this point and nothing has triggered the ability to do this quest. Second reason is that I love goliaths and I'm curious to see how this quest turns out. And third reason is I want to do every side quest before heading onto TVHM.

What in the world do I have to do to trigger this quest?

killing a goliath in the fridge causes him to drop an echo recording that starts this mission.

There's a Goliath that spawns near the beginning that will drop an ECHO that starts a quest. I got him to spawn after clearing the area and wandering through the Rat Maze just to see what's in there. The ECHO sends you into the rat maze to kill a named Goliath.

Just one pre-req to do this quest you have to finish scooter's quest to get his girl back from the rats. The area for this quest is through there but the goliath who starts spawns at the rat camp by the highland exit he sometimes does not spawn so yeah

I went through the Fridge 2-3 times, and never found the Goliath that drops this mission.

He spawns in one of two places, that I've been able to find:
1.) The very first area of enemies, where all the destroyed cars are.
2.) Down the hill (the one beside the Dahl? chest that looks like it's about to fall) and to the paved area on the left.

He sometimes requires you to kill others before he comes out.

As other have said killing Goliaths eventually causes one to drop it. However, when the mission Goliath has his helmet popped and turns into a Raging Goliath he is classed as another enemy type and doesn't drop the quest.

He spawned for me where I killed Scooter's cannibalistic girlfriend. Thanks for the tips!

JSkelton, that is incorrect. He dropped it as a raging Goliath.

Possibly been fixed then, I missed that quest on my Salvadors playthrough 1 because he turned into a Raging Goliath and I couldn't get him to drop it again.
