I had almost been afraid to ask you if you’d be doing this, since I know how much work it is. So thank you!

You’re welcome :grin: . Yeah, for a while it seemed like touch and go, but fortunately love to game prevailed. This is my favorite one after all. Well, at least until September…

As to loot maps, will now concentrate on DLC’s. Stay tuned.

Holy crap I had to log in after three-plus years to say this is amazing. Waaaaaaaaay back in 2009 I was part of a chest mapping thread with another dude named ZeroFyre or something. We put in the time and effort to do something similar to you. When the old forums went down it was a bit sad, but this is so much better than the work we did. Thank you thank you thank you.

Uploaded first batch of Borderlads DLC loot maps. This is maps for first one, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned.

I want to add that had somewhat hard time on getting some of the Loot Goons to spawn. Finally decided to move on and to return on these after all other DLC maps have been completed. Added marks of these locations from my original 10 year old xbox360 notes. Could it be possible that remaster process have touched these? Other ones randomly spawned in rate that I remembered. Curiously as hunted Generally Hospital Loot Goons noticed that as hiked to south beach one location, that theme music started to play but no Loot Goon in sight. Then spotted enemy red dot in compass bar and decided to investigate. Turned out that it was the northern Loot Goon. This is odd as normally these warnings kick in when player is relatively close to spawn point, certainly not in other side of map. Happened multiple time, so maybe a bug?

Thanks @UnderOver, and welcome again. Yes, there was lot of excellent threads and info that unfortunately got buried as old forums went to greener pastures. Incidentally, you are too warmly welcomed to contribute if do find any info missing/incorrect :grinning:

I’m pretty sure I had the Zombie Island loot goons spawn when I ran through in the remaster on XB1. If there’s specific locations you want double-checked, I’m happy to do that.

I phrased this too vaguely :space_invader:. Meant that there’s nine Loot Goons whose location I know and of these nine, three just have been too shy to come out to play. These three are marked on maps with exclamation mark beside spawn point marker chest. Two are in Hallow’s End and one in Generally Hospital. Help is always welcomed. As I want to verify these things before they go in maps, ran these maps some 50 times with these results. I’ll get later back to this new type of grinding. Joy!

Other six do spawn normal-randomly, multiple times.

OK, I did get all three of these in my Roland play-through. I will have to double-check if that was in the backwards compatible version or the remaster though. I’ll ping you when I update this post with the info.

Appreciated :grinning:. After those runs I decided that at this time, it’s better to complete rest of DLC maps than to get stuck in RNG gods hungry claws. As those spots that I did found in original BL1 (x360) are marked, planned to re-visit this facet later. But sooner this is solved, the better.

re: the chests in The Vault - they are farmable. If you save and quit from the vault then reload, they will not be there. But - start the game somewhere else (say, Tartarus Station), then fast travel to The Vault, and the chests will be there.

This is in Pt2.5 - not sure about PT1.

Yes, I’m aware of this. Understood that this is unintended feature which will most probably be patched. Glitches or bugs are not added to maps. Thanks though :+1:

You mean the southern beach one? And one at village by T.K. Baha’s place? Great stuff, thanks! Will be added shortly. First contributor reward: :doughnut:

And the final loot goon confirmed, except he spawned on the east side of the bridge leading to the Creepy Treehouse rather than on the west.

All this with Lilith in Pt.2 on remaster, and each one spawned on the first attempt.
