    I somewhat believe this as well because i did it solo and got jenkins to spawn.

    Do I need to be at the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve? Or can it be anywhere?

    This is great and all, but I've tried this at least 50 times and he hasn't spawned once. I don't think just because it spawns robots means theres a greater chance that Jenkins will spawn. Fuck gearbox for this bullshit challenge.

    Jenkins can be found in any Hyperion ammo crates, so not just in the Wildlife Preserve but also in Opportunity and such. However, this quest just improves your chances of finding Jenkins as you get to spawn multiple loot loaders at any one time, one of the random types being Jenkins itself.

    Yes, there are 5 different types of loot loaders and Jenkins is one of those 5 types so it is entirely random whether he will spawn for you. Just keep trying and you will eventually get him! At least, in this quest, you get FOUR chances to spawn Jenkins out of five different types of loot loaders, instead of wasting time trying to open chests in Opportunity without much luck. Good luck! =3

    Yes, you were very lucky. Some people, not so. I hope this quest will help more people to spawn Jenkins and save them hours of frustration.

    worked about the 4th try I didnt have the doc orders mission selected and I was solo but who cares it works. I was having issues with the jet looters cause they fly away when reloading and mess everything up cause the next box wont contain a looter if you dont kill the previous one first lol! Either way thanks for the great tip.

    yes they do I'd go up to the boxes set my two turrets down and watched the rape as I opened the boxes. Also I finally got him using this message along with the trophy damn finding that elusive bastard.

    I've done 3 solo runs on the cardboard boxes and in each run, 3 loot bots / midgets popped out. No Jenkins yet, but the spawn in consistent.

    I picked up 1/4 notes too (damn 12 slag container mission messed with me ), but not the one in the cardboard boxes. That may be why I'm only getting 3 looters in the boxes, or it may be completely unrelated.

    For anyone else doing this mission, there seems to be no need to backtrack if you pick up the other 3 notes, but each one picked up *might* reduce your odds of getting a spawn.

    [update] 6 runs now, 3 looters each run. No Jenkins yet, but the spawn works

    [update #2] first run of the day, 4 looters. Still no Jimmy, but there seems to be no correlation between number of notes picked up and box spawns, at least for the notes not in the cardboard box.

    hmm it seems that i can spawn them normally (4, 1 each box) except when i do co-op splitscreen and bring in my main account wich completed all quests, for some reason it wont work if i do that :S. But when i do solo i get to spawn them every time :/

    Thanks for your extra insights on this matter! ^o^ Everyone, good luck if you are still hunting for this elusive robot bastard.

    ....I've done about 109 runs through and only found Jimmy twice (both from here) once was in a mates game, one was in mine... I killed him in my game but the challenge didn't count for some f**ked up reason... and now, I haven't seen him since.

    I'm on TVHM run-through, I have Doctor's Orders active, but I didn't read this guide before starting the search for JJ. As a result I've picked up 2 of the 4 quest items, now there are no midgets spawning out of the 4 card-board boxes. Does this mean I've screwed up my chance of finding JJ in the Wildlife Preserve? If so, where's the 2nd most common spawn point for him? Finding JJ is the only thing I need to get the damn trophy!

    I got this randomly in thousand cuts but me and a mate tried this method quite a few times for him and it didn't work. We switched to me (the host) opening the boxes and it worked on our second try, he got Jimmy no problem. Don't know if you have to have the host opening the boxes but thats how it worked for us so anyone having trouble could give that a go
