A Real Boy

A Real Boy: Clothes Make the Man

When Level Location Rewards
Complete Where Angels Fear to Tread 27 Mal (Eridium Blight) 6548 XP, $479, Sniper Rifle or Shield

It seems a malfunctioning Loader named Mal wants to become a human, so he asks you to find him some clothes to help with that. The catch is that you need to kill the bandits in the area marked on your map until they drop the clothing items. It shouldn’t take too long to get the three items required for the mission, so return to Mal to finish once you have all three.

A Real Boy: Face Time

When Level Location Rewards
Complete previous mission 27 Mal (Eridium Blight) 6548 XP, $479, Shotgun or SMG

Mal doesn’t quote feel human yet and asks you to get some limbs this time. Unlike the previous mission, there are five set limbs located around Eridium Blight, so you’re going to have to hunt them down by going to each of the markers on your map. All of them are in areas where bandits spawn and aren’t particularly hard to get to, so you shouldn’t have any troubles. Return Mal to give him the limbs and finish the mission.

The body parts Mal needs are in set locations around Eridium Blight.

A Real Boy: Human

When Level Location Rewards
Complete previous mission 27 Mal (Eridium Blight) 6548 XP, Pistol

Mal has finally cracked the true meaning behind becoming a human, which is to kill each other! He’ll start attacking you and can do some decent damage, but you don’t want to get too far from him, as he will leap towards you. Other than that and his explosive weaponry, he is still a Loader and so, a corrosive weapon will work wonders here. Once you have finished him off, talk to him to end the mission.
