Where to Find & Location

  • Monarch Wilderness - Inside a small conveyor belt factory room that is opened from a large door just around the corner from where the first Mantiqueen is near the landing pad.
  • Monarch Wilderness - Inside the saloon type building in the abandoned town just below the landing pad.
  • On a file cabinet in Velma Ballard's office in the Stellar Bay warehouse.
  • In a corridor above the Groundbreaker security office. After exiting the Unreliable, hang to the left of the landing area and go up the ladder next to the restricted area (back door of the security office). At the top, climb the storage boxes and jump into the large corridor. At the far end use the small boxes to jump up onto the ledge, then jump across the gap to the corridor marked with high voltage signs. Inside a bin next to a skeleton is The Vermin (Edit:Either this is level based, or has been changed because I've reloaded from a differen't planet and went to ground breaker, to this bin above the offices and The Vermin hasn't been there. TL;DR : needs verification)
  • In the C&P Boarst Factory (in the Monarch Wilderness) near the large main south entrance on a table beside a workbench.

      Awesome handgun if you can get it early enough (looted one around level 10), can nail critical locations and don't need the heavy armor for a different weapon - pretty much a weapon that's great in the haves of a skilled player.

        In my Playthrough i found the Vermin in the Inventory of the Mardet that sometimes walks to the Ladder you mentioned for the Groundbreaker spot
