Killed a Chubby  

Chubby can be found all around Pandora, but there's two good spots you're guaranteed to find one and that is in the starting area of the Caustic Caverns (Cubby Vakid) & the Wildlife Exploration Preserve (Cubby Stalker). It has a fixed spawn point where the first group of enemies are located, right next to the fast travel stations. So you can back out to the main menu and hit continue to make all enemies respawn but take note they're ultra rare, so it may take some time. A Chubby is not a normal enemy, he's a variation of an enemy type, so - Varkid, Spiderant, Skag, Stalker, Midget and Rakk. 

For a list of other known locations, please see below.

  • Blake Bridge
  • Underground area's of Frostburn Canyon
  • The Dust
  • Firestone
  • Slaughter Dome

To get this achievement it has been confirmed you must obtain an erection and then simply look at Scooter's sister. Done and done.

My friend killed a random skag with chubby in the name and got it. I killed a random spiderant with chubby in the name and got it. Not exactly sure but seems like it could pop up anywhere.

Its a random hard enemy you find in the game. I have found 2 so far. A skag and a Rakk.

My friend and I had killed a chubby 2 nights after the game had released, but it didn't register or something... does anyone have a spawning system for them.? Thanks.

I got mine in the second attempt at farming the Chubby varient of an enemy in Caustic Caverns. Literally right at the beginning of the area, you open the gate, and you bump into the bulldozer that has scraps flying out of the top. If the bigger Varkaid isn't a Chubby just quit to main screen and continue. Rinse and repeat.

Tuesday, September 25, 2012 @ 02:32:28 AM

ok, i finally got it. took another 45 min today. plus the probably an hour and a half the other day of just reloading checkpoint after checkpoint...

Comment #24 by CORPSIE19
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 @ 05:18:36 PM

yess i can comfirm that the caustic caverns works!! :) i just reloaded time after time and he finally showed up. it took maybe 5 or 6 reloads. also what i realized is that the truck right after you open the gate starts to shake, thats when he showed up for me. hope this helps :)

If you're doing co-op, adult varkids morph into chubbies fairly often.

@ 19: Confirmed. Took 45 minutes of reloading and when I saw one the trucks shake as CORPSIE19 pointed out. I jumped up on the truck, looked down and a chubby varkid was there.

If you have the Creature Slaughter Dome, it's a great place to look for the Chubby. My friends and I found a few in there. I found one in Three Horns though at the beginning of my game. I guess I just got super lucky.

I My self have killed a chubby spiderant, which i found just outside ellie's garage in the dust. They have a very very very rare chance to spawn and are just like the normal creatures but appear slightly fatter and have boss like loot due to their rareity

Finally just found one in the Caustic Caverns. It was a Chubby Varkid that came out of a pod.

Comment #33 by Area85
Tuesday, October 02, 2012 @ 10:45:26 PM

Took me a while but it is confirmed to occur in Caustic Caverns. You have to have a lot of patience and reload the check point by exiting to the main menu and restarting. When you see the truck shake, head over to it and a Chubby will jump out. If it isn't one, it will be a Badass instead. Fight it if you want for drops and exp or quit and reload.

Happy hunting.

I got it on the mission where you meet Mordecai and you were meant to be transforming the pod..

Comment #35 by HalfbakedDon
Thursday, October 04, 2012 @ 02:29:18 PM

Id say the best place to find a Chubby is in "Caustic Caverns" inside the "Infested Warehouse" portion of the map, the varkids there are just about endlessly spawning and the constantly go in to their pods to transform, i didn't get the achievement due to the fact the person i was playing with at the time dealt the final blow to him but it seems like a the greatest place to me to get him to spawn i seen a few there but was never the one to finish him off.

I was lucky enough to find a chubby skag in Three Horns. Friend of mine has been trying since release to find one so it seems they're completely random.

Try the Creature Slaughterdome in the Annex. I found 2 more while finishing that up.

Sunday, October 07, 2012 @ 04:52:20 PM

I got the Achievement in a friend's game. I'm lower-level than him so I was firing at everything and hoping that I didn't die. I guess I finished off the right enemy, although I'm not sure what it was...

Found myself a chubby and started shooting at it but it's health wasn't going down, reference's aside to scooters sister Ellie, I got this achievement when going 5 rounds against skag off wildlife exploitation preserve, hope this helps.

Tuesday, October 16, 2012 @ 02:23:09 PM

here is a tip i got from a friend and got one within 1 hour , go to tundra express or caustic caverns , when you see a Varkid weaken it , it will turn into an adult varkid then if you are lucky it will either turn into a chubby varkid or a badass varkid , i have seen at least 3 chubby varkid's since trying this trick , make sure not to kill them , and make sure to let them go into their cocoons (pods) , once they pop out as chubby varkid kill them quickly before they transform again , and the achievement will pop up

First time I ran into a Chubby, I was so happy.. then it turned out it was a Chubby Rakk, and he had just pissed off a Field Rat. Damned Rat got the final shot, stealing my achievie. >.< Needless to say, he found out what happens when you meet a rocket head on at high speeds. :3

reloaded Caustic Caverns 3 times and got one in that first room by the trucks. Guess I got lucky with the spawn rate.

Friday, October 26, 2012 @ 07:46:08 AM

Just got this solo in Caustic Caverns via letting adults transform, it's a much easier way of doing this. Now I'm on 1125g/1125g!

I found a chubby when I was at the bottom of Sanctuary Hole. I was down there finding the Minecraft Easter egg, and I was there for about 20 minutes before a chubby spawned.

Comment #55 by Mindstorms
Wednesday, December 19, 2012 @ 03:21:19 AM

@50 - I farmed Caustic Caverns for well over a week and nothing showed. Then I watched a video clip on the varkid's evolving. In the video the guy spawns all the larval varkid's and then heads to the area on your left as you enter the area with the two dumper trucks. He then heads into the door and stays there, shooting out at the varkids. I did this. I sometimes had to head back out to the main area with the two trucks to get their attention and lure them back in. On my second attempt, I spawned a chubby and a super badass. I then reloaded and spawned another chubby - called my buddy who joined in and he killed the chubby for the achievement. We then used his save to complete two missions in caustic caverns that he had to do. We spawned FIVE more chubby's while moving around the caustic c

I got this by accident around the time I killed Captain Flynt. I was surprised to get this so early in the game.

I literally have no idea where these spawn or anything lol.

I hope you all have an easy time getting this like I did lol.

Wednesday, April 03, 2013 @ 01:11:39 PM

an easy way to get this is go to caustic caverns go however you spell it and let a varkid go into an adult pod and then a bad ass pod. it will either spawn as a badass varkid or a chubby varkid. i got like 3 of them to spawn but it takes quite a bit of tries.

Comment #64 by Blue Papyrus
Tuesday, May 21, 2013 @ 12:46:08 AM

Gas Guzzlers in Campaign of Carnage has a chubby raak. In fact, four of those elusive bastards spawned. Previous comments have mentioned this, so I'm just adding my testimony.

Comment #65 by deno2324
Wednesday, June 12, 2013 @ 08:08:38 AM

i didnt see my first one until the creature slaughter dome. One of the levels a chubby varkid or something spawned. Surprised it took that long to see one, although i did not go looking for one.

Just found one after hours of searching for the best way possible. I think I found a pretty good way. Farmhouse in Tundra Express, just keep circling around the varkids near there and let them evolve. The chubby came out of a Badass pod. If you don't get a chubby, just kill the Badass and let more evolve. I found this better than Caustic Caverns, but it could just be down to luck.

I found mine in the Caustic Caverns on my first time there. It was a chubby spiderant.

Comment #73 by Cryogenic Snowman
Monday, February 23, 2015 @ 05:29:18 PM

If anyone is still struggling with this achievements, just do the natural selection annex. At round 5 I killed three chubbys. This is a much better way then the "go to Caustic Cavern over and over again until you find one". Trust me. I did that for two hours and no luck, but when I did this side quest I got it without thinking about it.

This is also how my friend got the achievement, and he's not even an achievement hunter!

Comment #74 by Cyberra
Monday, September 12, 2016 @ 05:04:50 AM

This was a bit of an annoying one. I was killing spiderants in Bug Gulch in the Dust, resetting every time I cleared them out, over and over looking for a chubby. One of my friends was doing the same thing simultaneously in his game and would invite me over if he found one so I could kill it. But we had no luck, so I moved on with the main storyline.

Then I started the DLCs. In the Campaign of Carnage DLC, I picked up the side mission Gas Guzzler, to go kill ten rakk and collect gasoline sacs from them. And there were THREE CHUBBY RAKK just in that one tiny area.
