I've gotten him to spawn five times so far. Tundra Express is the best place to get him to appear. If anyone wants to join me in farming him my GT is Froslass lvl 99.

Can anyone else confirm if you need a certain amount of people (ie 2 will spawn him, or you must have 4) ?

I want to get the kawaii killer for siren, haha.

Seems like most people in here got him in the Caustic Caverns hmmm but the only save spot to camp and wait is at Old Man Johnson's Farm in Tundra Express. Still no luck though...

I'm not sure how true this is, but I heard that to get him to go from Ultimate badass, to invincible he has to kill some enemies (not sure if killing players counts), so that he can level up like the Goliaths do.

In the 2 days I've attempted, I got ONE Ultimate Badass and I can't even count the number of standard and Super Badasses.

Me and some friends tried on wednesday and rarely killed anything. We even managed to coerce the super badass to kill the crystalisk. Most times, the super badass will just stand there until you fire a bullet at or near him. Then he just attacks you and burrows.

Just a little information.

Hey there people. Just wanted to stop in and give my input on Vermmy.

1. Everyone having Blood of Terramorphous is not needed! Although i can not say even with it not being worn, he will still spawn, atleast we know you dont need everyone to have it.

2. You DO NOT need 4 people to get him to spawn. I've had him spawn by myself, i've had him spawn with me and a guest, and with 4 people. Although, as the game states, more people = more/stronger enemies = better loot.

3. He CAN be found at lower levels. One of my friends got him to spawn in tundra at the level of 46 before his 2.5 playthrough.

4. You do NOT need to find a varkid who is already a Badass or blood varkids. I've got him to spawn from larval to Supreme Pod most of the times i've done him. some times he would form from a blood.

5. You CAN Make Vermmy spawn twice in 1 game. You need to have patience to do it, but can be done. I used the Family Tree Idea, and worked wonderfully.

To give people an idea what im talking about when i say family tree, i mean that you let the game cap out the amount of mobs you can have (yes, there is a limit you can have in an area). Then you just let them evolve and dont kill any. the 3 times i got him to spawn in my game, i had 3 ultimate badasses flying around while i was bait because my friends didnt want to lose their 10s of millions of dollars. after about 5- 10 minutes, 1 of those 3 ultimates would go into a supreme pod. First vermmy we got to spawn we had vermmy himself, 2 ultimates, 5 supers, 6 badasses,and 2 adults. No larval and no blood could be found. After the first Vermmy was killed, we decided to test if he could spawn again. we let the 2 ultimates live, killed 3 supers and 5 badasses, and left the adults alone. More larval spawned and well, just let them evolve as we kept the ulitmates attentions. a 3rd ultimate appeared and again, 5 - 10 minutes later, another vermmy spawned. I wish i had a cap. card to record footage, but im too cheap to buy one

The "Family Tree Method" and all these other theories are complete bullshit. The chance of Vermivorous spawning is -->RANDOM<--.

I have followed multiple topics at the gearbox forums and have tried spawning him myself, by myself. Some games I would get an ultimate badass and other times a couple super badasses.

The best advice is to go somewhere with a lot of varkids and if a varkid stops evolving after five minutes, kill it and move on.

I've also heard it's possible to get him to spawn at the Creature Slaughter Dome. The ultimate badass spawns in Round 2 after you kill the super badass.

The best way to get a guarenteed Ultimate Badass is in the Creature Slaughter Dome DLC.

Complete the first round, hand the quest in and pick up the quest for round 2.

At the start of Wave 4(or5)? you get a Ultimate Badass everytime along with spiderlings,skags and larva varkids, wait to see if he evolves into Vermivorous, if not let yourself die and repeat all over again. (The wave before you get a Super Badass, you can also wait to see if he evolves to give yourself another chance at Vermi).

My first attempt at this I got Vermivorous to spawn, wasn't expecting him to appear so I died, thought I'd have to run through it a couple of times.

Like I said, probably the best way to give yourself a good chance at Vermi (Unless you have 4 players, Tundra or Caustic is probably better for survivability), but it can be quite hard at times to hold out for him to evolve.

Only downside is that if you die, or if the Ultimate Badass doesn't evolve, you have to go through the first few waves again.

Jet, i understand it is completely random, but i think the chances of you spawning Vermmy is greater because of the amount of varkid you let live. I support that method BECAUSE of what you do. More Varkid = Better Vermmy chance because each one has a random chance to evolve.

whether it is a family tree or a random chance, the game will only allow so many higher tier enemies at once, and if they don't morph at the higher level you kill it. If a superbadass doesnt morph into ultimate after a reasonable time period kill it, if a badass doesnt morph into super kill it... start with the higher tiers first after so long without morphing, this will "open up" space for the lower tier ones to evolve up through the tiers. It IS possible to kill all of the Varkids there and get him to appear, but this way you are basically sifting through all the enemies to see which one has a chance to become Vermi.

My group got him to spawn about 10 times in an hour or 2 by using this method.

Myself and a couple friends finally battled Vermivorous for the first time a couple of days ago after many attempts to spawn him. This is what I've observed:

  • While some have claimed it is possible (though very slim) to spawn Vermivorous solo, I have never successfully done so. Many who have done it said it took many hours of play with a lot of restarting if evolution slowed.
  • If evolution does not continue with a maximum of 3-4 minutes between, it probably won't happen.
  • The highest rate of success is in a lobby of 4 people, 3 is also possible. Doing it with 2 doesn't progress any better than solo.
  • Party members do not have to be constantly engaged in battle with the varkids throughout the evolutionary process. Hiding in a nearby building (Caustic Caverns, Tundra Express Farmhouse) will work so long as party members continue to draw aggro from enemies either via shooting walls and other nearby surfaces or if a Gunzerker is present via "Come At Me Bro".
  • The family tree is BS
  • Once an Ultimate Badass has spawned, it will be necessary to keep tabs as to where it is. Vermivorous himself is so large that when the Ultimate Badass Varkid pods, the pod will not be visible.
  • Vermivorous appears to drop little to no loot.

Hope this helps. Also, PC players can download a "difficulty slider" mod that will trick the game into thinking there are multiple players if playing solo. That seems to be the only definitive way to spawn him solo.

Solo'd vermmy 2 weeks ago when they made his spawn increase. Only took like 30-45 minutes though. Got a badass rocket launcer off him but that basicly it.
