Trying to finish the "Sacked" mission and I only need to see him to finish but no matter what I do he won't spawn. I completed another mission and went back, I've left the area and returned, I've quit to the menu and reloaded and I've fully exited the game with no luck. Any ideas other than wait for Gearbox to fix it? I've had a few other checkpoints that didn't spawn correctly but a reload fixed them.

I'd try a hard reset. I have no idea if it'll help, but it's all I've got.
How's my posting?

Dood I feel you. (notice the dood spelling. A video game taught me that and that if your not level 9999 you are not done. Thanks jrpg.)

So I had same issue with space tag lasers.
Don't remember how far that mission is but the best fix and advice is search around for someone who is doing that mission from the start. Join their game. Run it
Thank them for the assist.
Profit.

The only way so far to repair a glitched mission is to join someone else to do it. You get credit for finishing it also. I had to do this for space laser tag.

Shouts to crankycandy for saving my arse from space laser tag.

He is supposed to be there, but if you are doing a side mission while you are doing his main questline, he might be where his main questline is.

This typically happens if you find a side quest before you finish the main quest, and decide to cancel the quest and go BACK.

His marker being where it is, is based on the quest, not his actual location. He is probably at Jacobs Manor.

If you don't have Jacob's manner unlocked, then yes, you are SOL. You will have to find someone that has the quest available, or has Jacobs manor unlocked and cross your fingers that Wainwright is there to talk to for you.

This typically happens if you join a friends game, and take a sidequest... when they are much further in the game than you.

Sounds like you tried power leveling the monkeys with someone, and picked up the bounty in an area you don't have unlocked.
If what I said doesn't makes sense... it's because you don't want it to make sense.

Already had that area unlocked but I did start it before I had finished the Graveward mission. I had two attempts at beating him but didn't get far so I decided to do side missions to level up a bit more. I also haven't joined anyone else's game. Started in split screen while my son was visiting and have been playing solo since. I have the great horned skag as my pet. He's like a 4 legged dirty bomb.

Unfortunately this game is going to have glitches and issues for about 6 months before it gets sorted out. You’ll encounter plenty of “white knighting” and people saying they don’t have any issues as you uncover more glitches and issues. Just ignore them. We just have to be patient. After all, we’re dealing with a company that took wayyyyyy to long to finally come out with this game.
